Blood StatusesBlood status in the Harry Potter world do not mean the type of blood that runs through the veins of a character, but rather the magic that runs through them. There are three standard types of blood status for magic, and two for no magic. Going from greatest magic to least magic is as follows:
--> Muggle born
--> Muggle / No-MajMuggles and No-MajMuggles, or No-Maj in America, are those without any magical heritage or magical knowledge whatsoever, and are actually the biggest population of the world. Muggles are normal people who have various jobs within the world, and are often obliviated when magic happens near, around or specifically to them. Some muggles marry into the magical world, and learn of the magic hidden around them, but this stays a closely guarded secret. Children born of pure muggle families who produce magic are considered muggleborns. Currently, muggles are not playable here at TP.SquibsSquibs are an extremely rare occurrence when a pureblood or half blood line produce non-magical children. In some cases, squibs are disowned by the family, given to the muggle world and grow up without knowing any sort of magic. Other squibs are brought up in the magical world. Squibs are treated higher than they are by certain pure blooded families, although they are still considered muggle from a wizard's standpoint. Currently, here at TP, we do not allow squib characters.MugglebornsMuggleborn children are rare, and produced when a half blood or pureblood family produces a squib. Generally, the squib's own children are muggles (those lacking magical elements), and generations later, a particularly apt witch or wizard appears in the family lineage. Muggleborns are, by all means, currently the bane of the magical world, being titled as Mudblood by some of the higher pureblood classes, and are currently being hunted down and shipped to the Facility to be taken care of.Half BloodsHalfblooded witches and wizards are the largest group of magical bloodlines. Generally, halfbloods are any combination of wizarding blood that isn't pure on pure. While not the most favored of the blood statuses, half bloods are generally well looked upon, or at the very least they are tolerated and still count as full members of the wizarding society.PurebloodsPureblood families are the top of the magical food chain, with little to no muggle heritage at all in their family history. Most purebloods are stuck up when it comes to their blood status, and think they are the best of the best. Purebloods who do not marry into pureblood families are often considered blood traitors, and there's often a lot of interconnected marriage between families -- cousins marrying cousins, etc. Purebloods aren't as rare as muggleborns, but they are starting to dwindle.
