Ollivander (A.K.A. Oliver Fox Selwyn , was an Ambassador, Successful Businessman, Terrible Politician, Upcoming Financial Adviser, and Connoisseur of Pointy Sticks. In addition, Olly was very active on the Forums and IRC, taking part in many a discussion and spam thread. He was also a Bobloist-Extremist, and has been named a Knight of Spamalot.
Ollivander was a Member of Parliament in Scotland and the Under Minister of Legislative Affairs. He has served as the United Kingdom Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ambassador to South America/South Africa and to Western Europe. Also, he held an Apprenticeship within the British Ministry of Home Affairs for several months, and was promoted to Assistant in August, but quit soon after. In addition, he used to be a Senior Member of the Every Single One Political Party, but has since left the party.
He was also the writer and editor of the Finance-Orientated Newspaper, LOUISE LOUISE LOUISE.
Ollivander was born on Day 1340 of the New World in Edinburgh, Scotland. He quickly adapted to his new life, and soon found his way to the UK Forums and IRC channels. When he reached Level 13, he joined the Every Single One party and became friends with people such as Emergy Maxfell and Elle Roslin, who have both greatly helped him in his life so far.
He stayed with the ESO for a bit, and was named Donations Officer, but soon became disillusioned with the Party and decided to leave a month later. It was during this time that his love for all things economical developed.
Whilst talking to Emergy Maxfell, Ollivander discovered his interest in Finances, and started to become more business orientated. Emergy told him of the new British Free Iron and Land grant programs which Olly took up, jump-starting his financial adventures.
Money Money Money
Ollivander has published an article/guide, , describing his economic growth and plans in great detail. The article itself became wildly popular, and actually helped gain him some respect as a financial adviser.
The basis for Olly's success were the amazing Free Iron Grants and BoE Loans Programs offered by the UK Ministry of Finance. After the initial 3 Iron Mines he received for free, Ollivander's success has been immeasurable. Taking out Loan after Loan with the BoE, he has proven to the masses that great fortunes can be made by good calculations and opportunism.
Ollivander's Land consisted of:
- 4 Grain Farms
- 6 Fruit Orchards
- 16 Oil Rigs
- 2 Food Companies
- 2 Weapons Factory
Ollivander was a member and MP of the United Kingdom Reform Party.
He used to be an influential and senior member of the ESO, which he joined the due to its beliefs in the power of every individual, and that each person could help the eUK in their own unique way. Olly has seen and participated in the administrations of six ESO Party Presidents (Artela, The_Grump, Jamesw, Gambit8, StockyRocky310597, and Daeres) and was most active during the Grump's leadership as well as Daeres's leadership. He left the party in early September 2011 after feeling disillusioned, and a gradual shift in the party's dynamic.
Ollivander is the Under Minister of Legislative Affairs under Valorum.
One fine evening, Olly was taking a stroll when he noticed a shop with a sign in the window offering free cake. Quite naturally, he popped in, but saw that the shopkeeper was busy shouting at his rabbit secretary. Still not giving up on the offer of free vittles, he slid to the corner and nonchalantly perused through the used cassette tapes while inconspicuously scoping the shop for the cake. Suddenly, the Shopkeeper (who was wearing a massive, poofy hat) tapped him on the shoulder and said, "I suppose you're here for the free cake." Olly, flustered and intimidated by the poofy hat, replied, "Pssshhh...Cake? What cake? No, I'm not here for cake." To which the shopkeeper, whose nametag said Valorum, asked, "Well that's too bad, we have some mighty fine cake, but oh well. By the way, do you wanna be an UnderMinister of Legislative Affairs?" Still intimidated by the poofy hat, Ollivander whimpered, "Sure", and left with a poofy hat of his own, and no cake.
Olly used to be an Assistant in the Ministry of Home Affairs and served for two months.
He was also the British Ambassador to South America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay,Uruguay) and South Africa as well as the Ambassador to Western Europe in a different term. He served in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs under Daeres and later under Margaret H Thatcher.
Haus of Boblo
Ollivander is a devout believer in Spamican Bobloism and is the first Bobloist to have joined the Spamican Church though the initiation rites set forth by John F Baker. He was accepted into the Church on June 23, 2011 or Day 1311 of the New World (in his former life as Norman Ashcroft). Olly has already managed to spam the entirety of the BBH forums once with a message proclaiming that "Cyborch is Shit and Hail Boblo". In August 2011, he was knighted into the Order of Spamalot by Arthur Wellesley under the reign of Pope Frerk.
Ollivander has had two former lives. One of which was banned and the other abandoned due to having a shitty name.
Oliver Fox Selwyn
Ollivander's first predecessor, Oliver Fox Selwyn, was born on March 16, 2010 in Washington, USA. He lived as a Hobo on the streets of Seattle for the first week of his life, but soon found a land working job and a home. Not soon after, a Brit by the name of Asher Di Immortales gave him some assistance (assistance which likely kept him in the game) and convinced Olly to move to London, UK. It was there that Oliver reached lv. 13 and was allowed to join a political party and he quickly chose The Unity Party due to their kindness in his time of need. Unfortunately, events in another world called Real Life prevented Olly from becoming anything more that just a two-clicker. And just as he was about to break the two-click habit,V2 happened. The changes in the New World were so drastic, that Olly was driven to insanity and Rage Quit.
One year later, Oliver returned to Erepublik and found that the changes had died down some and decided to stay. He became a businessman, and quickly amassed a small fortune through his weapons factories and Money Market Speculating. In addition, he also joined the Royal Navy and served on the HMS John F Baker.
It was during this period that he discovered and joined the ESO party. Olly almost immediately became friends with The_Grump, who was the Party President at the time. He then volunteered to write the ESO Weekly Round-Up for the party, and began to become well-known by other party members and UK citizens. This all led to his decision to run for Parliament in his chosen (and favored) region of Scotland in the April Congressional Elections. But fate decided otherwise, as the Canadians chose that time to invade and take Scotland and, in effect, ruin Olly's opportunity. The_Grump still talked to him about running in London as a wildcard, but Oliver decided to let other ESO candidates have a chance and pulled out of the runnings.
He was pronounced dead on June 1st, 2011, Day 1289 of the New World
Most of the BBH stuff happened with Norman, but his name was absolutely horrible and he eventually committed suicide and asked for his account to be destroyed (which it wasn't for some reason).
The Military Weeks
Ollivander was a member of the British Army. He joined on Day 1,396 and served under Kravenn.
In his past lives, Ollivander was a very active and upcoming member of the Royal Navy. He was personal friends with Kdoggroundtwo and Mini Munch and was almost given his own command post until the scuttling of the official fleet. OllyFox and Norman both took part in many IRC strikes and campaigns until their deaths.
