To everyone, the Potter's were the picture perfect family. They all thought James and Lily were model parents, and while it is not completely false, it is also not entirely true. They loved their son Ric, The-Boy-Who-Lived, as he had been dubbed since he was one. Though, they hated their first born, Thomas Harry Potter. But, they refused to call him Thomas, and have called him Harry ever since he was five and his brother got his fame. It was then he realized he would not be cared for. Thomas was no fool, and so he taught himself. By the time he started Hogwarts, he was a prodigy. While his so called 'powerful' brother hadn't even experienced any accidental magic, and had already turned six. Thomas continued his 'Harry' facade, and he let his parents hit him. He let the whole world underestimate him because he would destroy every one and everything that ever stood in his way.
