Name:Tom M. Riddle, Lord Ostium of the House of Arch
Birthdate:Jan 6
Location:London Below, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
In the summer of 2004 there was a new game on Livejournal, and I sent in an application for a young Tom Riddle to appear at the bar at the end of the universe.

One moment I'm 27, I'm in Albania, it's 1954, and I'm working on, ahem, advancing my career, then the next moment hanging about at the bar at the end of the universe. And liking it.

Maybe all that time spent brooding and plotting should have been spent enjoying life a little. Maybe I'll be making up for lost time, here at the end of the universe.

I'm finding that things are not as black and white as I once thought. I'm not as black as I once thought.

And there's a girl... a magnificent girl.

Milliways changed Tom Marvolo Riddle. I've played him so long now that he's outgrown his username. This is his second RP journal.

Details about character:
When he first arrived at Milliways he was mostly confused - his self-esteem and expectations took a major hit from finding out what happened to Voldemort (insanity, sloppy attempts at world domination, defeat by a baby). He used to know exactly what he wanted and how to get it, at Milliways, he wasn't sure what he wanted. He also met some very interesting people who gave him plenty to think about.

He also met Door, Lady of the House of Arch in London Below. He's known there as Lord Ostium, and as a result of a binding ritual to Door and the House, he is also an Opener. Tom and Door were married in February of their year 1998 (Milliways 2006). They're the parental figures for Ingress, Door's little sister, and Gavroche Thernardier, who was taken in upon his arrival at Milliways. He and Door welcomed Portico, their first son, in Milliways year 2012, and Egress came along in Millways year 2015. What is this in Underside time? WHO KNOWS? I can't keep track anymore.

As a result of blending Millicanon and ongoing book canon throughout the years, Tom turned out to be an aspect of himself plucked from 1954; in fact, he's all the remaining humanity existing within Voldemort when he made his second Horcrux. Tom is the result of magical convergence bringing that part of his soul whole and intact to Milliways. He received a second chance and had one hell of a redemption arc to make him the man he is now.

While he is capable of kindness and warmth, he remains a man of immense power and the capacity to act upon that power. Don't cross him. And seriously, don't threaten his family. That will never go well.

Physical Description:
Tom is a charming, attractive man who appears to be in his mid-thirties with black hair and blue eyes. He's 6'1" and of medium build. He is a bookish guy, but he's not scrawny. He has long thin scars on his palms from the ritual in which he was accepted into the House of Arch. In addition to being a Legilimens, he is an Occlumens, and he gets rather twitchy about anyone poking around his mental shields.

Tom resides in [community profile] house_of_arch and can be found in [community profile] milliways_bar and [community profile] neverways - London Below in the time of Milliways.

Of course, the fanfic and the character are based on J.K. Rowling's creations. [personal profile] vivien is borrowing them respectfully. Christian Coulson belongs to himself, but I am grateful for his lovely image. Tom appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
