Beckett is a good guy, despite everything pointing otherwise. He's fun-loving and likes to help people, being a child of chivalry and a well rounded family. But he ran off from his family with his sister and lives off of potato chips and dumpster diving, so there's obvious underlying issues. There's something gratifying about being a huge bother, and that's what Beckett likes to be. He's a magpie that steals anything that catches his eye. He collects disgusting oddities and magical trinkets, and he may or may not turn them over for a profit on the side. He's not necessarily mean on purpose, but he likes to tease and giggle at people who don't really deserve it. Most people end up liking him despite that, as he's charming and flirtatious in very wholesome, innocent ways. He knows how to talk to people, he just also knows how to underhandedly bother them. Beckett cleans up well, is musically adept, well read, and courteous when he wants to be.

He's the kid on the playground that eats worms because people dared him to. The one that will spit them out onto your face if you're annoying him. "I don't care" is his motto.

The biggest thing about Beckett is that no one knows much about him, despite numerous rumors going around. Things tend to contradict and intertwine until it's enigmatic and makes little sense. Beckett likes it that way. But don't be fooled, this storyteller is often caught in misadventures where he ends up perfectly fine by the skin of his teeth, and that's the truth. He doesn't embellish. But, he does underhandedly spread things about himself to keep people guessing.

Those who are interested can receive tarot readings from him. He's learned quite a bit of divination from his cousin, though he's not nearly as adept as she is.

Always the mischievous child, Beckett was the cause of many of his mother's problems as he grew up. While her intention was to marry a rich man with no spooky, lil' strings attached, what she received was a well mannered wizard who fell deeply in love with her. And perhaps she loved him, too. But when his older sister, Violet, was accepted into Hogwarts, life for them was suddenly much more confusing and a bit horrifying. Beckett, being only four years younger than her, immediately found it extraordinary, and it took him no time at all to tap into the goldmine that is magic. This meant a lot of phone calls home from his private, muggle primary school, ranging from "he somehow threw a peer onto the roof" to "he somehow set the loo on fire". Beckett likes the exciting aspects of life, he always has, and it was because he showed this trait at such a young age that his mother did her surefire best to keep him in line.

But nothing ever worked.

He was sorted into Slytherin, just like Violet, and the two of them mostly went their own ways. If one saw them in the hallway, they could likely guess they were siblings based on their blase dispositions while hanging around each other. But Violet mothered Beckett a bit, not very much to be annoying, but enough to keep him in check. She could often be seen tying or retying his tie for him in the common room.

At age thirteen, Beckett's sister graduated Hogwarts, and she took no time to leave the stuffiness of their parents' home, and she didn't even hesitate to bring Beckett with her. While their relationship was never tight knit, she understood their lifestyle was much too suffocating for a teenager. Technically, Beckett is a runaway, as he never even said goodbye to his parents. His mother freaks out often about his wellbeing, but he managed to elude her until he was of age. The siblings found an apartment in Glasgow, settled down with a few roommates, and Beckett has been living the life of poverty ever since. However, in truth, Beckett finds it all very exciting and always has. Without his sister at school, he became a bit of a local legend with the antics he finds himself in. Some would describe him as devilish, but those who do have never spoken to his otherwise cathartic charm.
