“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open. ”
Likes: Playing, showing off his guitar skills, fire, big cats, loyalty, his fans, Firewhiskey, alcohol.
Dislikes: Betrayal, haters, anyone who in any way insults his band members, clingy girls, the thought of the band ever breaking up, rats, the thought of his parents deaths, magical children having to go live in Muggle orphanages.
Habits: Smokes (though is trying to cut down), can't live without his morning coffee, chews on the inside of his lip when thinking.
Personality: Had he gone to a Muggle highschool, Kirley would have been been the typical highschool jock. He is flirty, cocky, and extremely confident. He is a habitual womanizer, loves nothing more than to go for drinks with his band-mates, and smokes worse than the Hogwarts Express. He isn't above toying with people's affections if it results in him getting what he wants (sex, a new guitar, free drinks at the Leaky Cauldron). He leaves behind a trail of broken hearts wherever he goes, not really stopping to think about the consequences of that. Despite being a narcissist, Kirley has a mean protective streak, mainly when it comes to his family or bandmates. He is not someone you want to see angry as he is vindictive and really aggressive. He has been kicked out of bars and clubs many a time for being in pub brawls, though he tries his best not to start him. He simply has a "act now, think later" sort of mentality which has landed him in hot water many a time. He is happiest when on stage, performing for his fans. He's quite the show off during shows, except this goes down fine with the rest of the band because they're all big on theatrics. He also adores his fans and is an absolute sweetheart around and with them, especially his younger fans.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
Hometown: Cardiff
Father: Andrew Duke (Muggle)
Mother: Aneira Rhydderch (Witch)
Siblings: Arianwen Duke (younger sister, 32)
Others: Heathcote Barbary (best friend and band-mate), Gideon Crumb, Merton Graves, Orsino Thruston, Donaghan Tremlett, Myron Wagtail, Herman Wintringham (band-mates)
History: Born as the only son of a carpenter, Kirley was supposed to have continued on in the family trade long after his father had gone. Kirley didn't have the heart to tell him that he wanted to make music instead of carving things out of wood, so he went along with what his father said. The family were not exactly poor, but they would often have to sacrifice things such as holidays, new toys, and other 'not necessary' things, just to get by. Despite their lifestyle, Kirley wasn't bitter about not getting the most plush teddy or a new racing car toy. He loved his family and all they had (or didn't have). The young boy loved helping his father out in the workshop and would often come back to his mother with multiple cuts and scrapes, which his mother would heal up. Knowing of his son's love of music, his father carved him his own guitar and gave it to Kirley as a present one birthday. Kirley was ecstatic and would spend all his free time when not helping at the workshop playing his guitar. To this date, it is still his most prized possession.

The rest of Kirley's childhood went by uneventfully. He was a happy child, protective over his baby sister, and in charge of teaching her the ways of the world. He liked teaching her new things, whether it was a spell to keep sawdust out of her hair, or how to play simple songs on his guitar. He stood up for her like he felt a big brother should, and was in quite a few fights with the local boys when they were being mean to his sister. During the latter part of his childhood he made friends with Heathcote Barbary and the two would spend many hours together helping Kirley's dad make stuff, or jamming on their guitars together.

When Kirley first arrived at Hogwarts, he was a happy-go-lucky kid who found it easy to make friends. Despite being in Slytherin, he made friends with many students from other houses. All through school he dreamed about starting his own band, though he had doubts that the plan would come to fruition. But oh how he dreamed! In his second year he mentioned the idea to his closest friends, Heathcote and Orsino Thruston and the trio began to plan their band, naming it 'The Weird Sisters' because they were close enough to be siblings but wanting to have a very unusual name.

During 1973, when Kirley was just 13 and his sister was only just starting her first year, the children's parents were killed by Death Eaters during the Wizarding War. As the kids were at Hogwarts at the time, they survived, however as they had no other relatives, they were forced to live in a Muggle orphanage during their Summer holidays away from Hogwarts. Kirley and his sister would often be bullied for not fitting in with the rest of the children, and Kirley would often be in fights with the bullies. His summers became the most miserable time of his life.

At Hogwarts, he became less happy-go-lucky and instead turned masked his hurt and pain with a careless demeanor. To take his mind off things, Heathcote and Orsino decided to kickstart Kirley's rock-band dreams, getting some of their mutual friends involved in the project. The rest of the years at Hogwarts flew by in a whirlwind of practices, study, and girls. As Kirley became older, he turned into a womanizer and a flirt, beginning his string of broken hearts early. He had a string of girlfriends throughout school, but nothing permanent. Permanent just wasn't Kirley when it came to dating; as soon as the spark was gone, he was gone too.

Because all of the band-mates were graduating Hogwarts at different times, they all had to contemplate other careers instead of musicians. Kirley went back to run his father's carpentry shop, his specialty becoming guitars and other woodwind instruments. However though he was fulfilling his father's wishes and legacy, he wasn't content with the job and dreamed constantly of what would have been if he and his friends could have made the band.

Years later, Kirley reunited with his friends and they decided to revive their childhood dreams of having a band. It took some traction to get the project running, plus their band wasn't an instant hit, so they were constantly playing at low-paying gigs like The Hog's Head. However, after a year of hard work, sweat, and tears, their song 'Do The Hippogriff' got played on the Wizarding Wireless Network, and became an instant hit. Since then, the band have been on the rise, gaining popularity not only with their records but with their live concerts as well, thanks to the band's love of pyrotechnics.

Thanks to his fame and fortune, Kirley has  recently opened up an orphanage for magical children who were left orphans for whatever reason. Since he was often mistreated for "going to a weird school" and "not being normal" at the Muggle orphanage, he doesn't want any other magical children to go through such bullying.

“Curiosity is not a sin.... But we should exercise caution with our curiosity... yes, indeed.”
