Dainéal tries to be nice to everyone he meets, though has a habit of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Because of a recent growth spurt, he's become slightly unused to his now lanky frame, resulting, usually, in a variety of bruises on his extremities. Fairly oblivious to objects and people around him, he's generally heard apologizing to inanimate objects after running into them, and occasionally people too. Awkward as he may be physically, he's a bright kid who spends his time solving puzzles, studying languages and practicing quiddich. He doesn't have to try very hard to excel, and is, all in all, a good student. He also likes to spend a good majority of his time daydreaming, and so can often be caught off guard. When he's paying attention, though, he retains most everything he sees and hears, and can get competitive if provoked. He doesn't get angry easily, though does quickly grow protective of friends and family.
Dainéal was born in the city of Dingle in southern Ireland, though moved to Dublin when he was six. His parents were divorced just before the move, though he still keeps in contact with his father, who now lives in Spain. His mother, a fairly well-to-do physician, took care of him and his two younger siblings, Killian and Isabel. Dainéal always tried to help around the house, though was really only good at folding the laundry and making sure his baby siblings were happy. Since his mother wasn't around all that often, Dainéal grew up with the family nanny, a woman named Mary. It was through Mary that Dainéal and his mother learned about Hogwarts, and when the time came, his mum was more than happy that he was accepted. Dainéal was slightly reluctant to leave, as he had always helped care for his siblings, but soon agreed to be shipped off to the school.
- When Dainéal was seven, he tripped down the front stairs of his house and hit his head on the railing. He didn't sustain any lasting injuries, though the trauma induced the partial heterochromia in his left eye.
- Can be readily bribed by ice cream and butterbeer.
- Has broken 5 bones: 2 while playing sports, 2 by accidents on his bike, and 1 by a failed dare.
