The name of Anthony gives you a clever, quick, analytical mind, but you suffer with a great deal of self-consciousness, lack of confidence, and much aloneness because of misunderstandings. Your idealistic and sensitive nature gives you a deep appreciation for the finer things of life and a strong desire to be of service to humanity. There are times when you experience inner turbulence at your inability to say what you mean. It is far easier for you to express your deeper thoughts and feelings through writing than verbally. You find pleasure in literature, in poetry, and in your ideals and will turn to them when you feel you have been misunderstood

The surname Goldstein combines the word 'Gold' and the word 'Steinn' from Old Norse. The word 'Steinn' holds the meaning of stone or rock.

Physical Attributes

Anthony has light, sandy brown hair that he wears short. His eyes are a dark, smoky blue that gives the impression of growing lighter when he’s in a good mood. He stands at a slightly above average height of five foot nine and possesses an athlete’s body that he’s quite proud of. He wears his uniform in a neat and smart manner that makes the others around him look unkempt. This doesn’t mean Anthony looks nerdy, he just prefers to look dressed rather than scruffy since first impressions always matter. When he is not in his uniform, Anthony prefers to wear clothes that are sophisticated and simple.


Intelligent, responsible and serious would be a few words to describe Anthony. He often weighs out his options first before acting them out. As a man of minimal effort, he strives to complete his goals in the least number of steps possible. Anthony tends to do things in a very matter-of-fact and straightforward manner, which often leads people to think he has no sense of humour whatsoever. That is not true of course, he just likes to get things done and is more blunt than comical.

Anthony is also a perfectionist. He likes to have events happen in a specific order, under his control. He has a peculiar habit of strategically arranging his things, whether it is books, socks or underwear. His habits also transfer to how he deals with his friends; if Anthony sees a tie loose he would almost always unconsciously reach out to straighten it for the other person. Sadly this often leads to misinterpreted situations, not that it really bothers him. Or notices.

Sexual Orientation

Anthony has never paid too many thoughts on dating and relationships and thus, has never been in an official relationship yet. He had however, harboured a crush on Cho Chang like many other boys in Ravenclaw, that crush came to an end when his good friend, Michael Corner, started dating her. He prefers to avoid girls who are demanding and he finds the flirtatious type rather frightening. Don’t ask if he likes boys or not, he wouldn’t be able to answer you as he hasn’t a clue himself. Anthony is not quite sure what type of girl he likes now, but he feels pretty confident that it would be the pretty and intelligent type.

Background History

Anthony is pureblood. He is the youngest son out of three, to Johan and Anna Goldstein. His two older brothers both have families of their own and work in different departments within the Ministry for Magic. Anthony is very dear to both Johan and Anna because he was born to them when they were both much older and not expecting any more children. Anna was in her late-forties to be exact, and to carry a child at that age, back then, was a risky process. Quite obviously, both mother and child turned out fine.

Since both of his elder brothers were significantly older than Anthony, he grew up without ever really getting that close to them, seeing as they were working by the time he was two. Due to this reason, sometimes Anthony thinks of himself as the only child rather than as the baby of the family. The Goldsteins are not a wealthy family compared to the Malfoys per se, but they are well off enough to afford a nice mansion in the countryside.

It came as no surprise when Anthony’s acceptance letter to Hogwarts came and it was almost expected of him to be sorted into Ravenclaw. Seeing as both his parents and brothers were sorted into that House as well. Anthony gets along quite well with the members of his House and is, hopefully, respected by them as well. He has no enemies that he is aware of and generally tries to avoid tricky confrontations.

The Goldsteins have mixed feelings about Voldemort and will try their best to stay neutral (and safe) throughout the whole ordeal.
