Archer was born only months before his father deceased. He had a brother, 12 years older, and an ill mother. The boys were practically raised by a live-in nanny, who they fondly thought of as their mother. Two years after Archer was born, his mother passed away. The nanny and her husband, both purebloods adopted the boys, and they were moved from London to Dublin. Archer loved to travel, and be outdoors. He hated being inside. He hated being told what to do, and he hated to stay in one place. He had itchy toes, and he needed space to spread out.

Finding a love of herbology, and travel, he spent his time studying at Edinburgh, living on campus, and four years later, graduated. He went to work for private magical nurseries within Ireland, and travelling the world to learn more about international ecosystems. He progressed to a senior herbologist, and decided to combine his love of travel, and freelance, with his passion for herbology. He went back to uni and slowly completed a Journalism course, whilst simultaneously working as a part-time herbology lecturer, and senior herbologist. Once he graduated, he was employed with contracts to different magazine companies, where he travelled the world, was able to work in Ministries all around the world, and alongside well-known herbologists.


Scene One: Brazil

Archer, still holding onto Gabby's hand, felt his feet land firmly on the ground. Well, as firm as the powdery sand allowed. His tent was in his bag, which was over his shoulder. Undetectable extension charms always came in handy. "Well... here we are," he said to her, sliding a hand around her waist, looking out at the horizon. The sun was getting ready to set, and the water looked as clear as water.

always on the move
