Ezra-Selene Selwyn had never much cared for the gender-binary. They’d announced this at the dinner table, aged eight, and the statement, so adult from a childs mouth, had finished the argument over whether they were to wear the ruffled or the lace-edged robes to the Notts winter ball.
Mr. and Mrs. Selwyn had quickly helped them pick out a name and Ezra-Selene loved to play with it, some days just Ezra, some days just Selene, some days neither, some days both. They/them were always preferred.
Their younger brother Silas was at first confused but quickly grew to understand that all people were their own and, provided they could wield a wand, who was to argue with their perception of self? (They were something of a blood-purist family after all. There were some traditions there was no escaping.)
But Ezra-Selene grew up remarkably well-adjusted for a child of a Dark family and was sorted into Ravenclaw where they thrived. When Voldemort rose in Britain however Ezra-Selene fled. They had seen too much of the Muggle-Grindelwald’s antics on the continent, heard of those outside the norm like themselves bundled away into camps and never heard from again. It scared them.
Ezra-Selene fled to America and joined the southern wixes, living in the mountains and the prairie and minding herds of winged horses and unicorns. They quite liked the stories of the muggle cowboys and decided to buy a gun. You could never be too careful – a protego might deflect spells, a stupefy might stun the enemy but a gun dealt with them, and no shield yet devised could deflect a hard metal bullet.
They became well known over time. The first of the mage-riders to wield a gun, tucked into a holster right beside their wand, the first to prove its usefulness. Ezra-Selene was never proud of it. But they did so love people not forgetting their pronouns for once, even if they did stutter slightly when asking for an autograph.
