Setting: HP universe
Already Searched: wrongdiagnosis and the tagged entries in this community.
I need a fatal disease for a man in his early 30's. So said man was prior in top condition and not anywhere near any magical settings, and hasn't been for a long time. I'd like his disease to be slowly progressing, with sudden bouts where it gets worse. (Such as gasping for breath, and suddenly collapsing and such?)
Am considering aids, and cancer. CF would be out of the question as it seems to be hereditary disease. Have dismissed Lupus, as well.(Because as we all know, mostly everyone in the HP universe are related to each other.) Wouldn't want anything super-contagious either, since I want him to be able to interact with other people without fear of infecting them. I want him to be able to do things, as well, such as driving a motorcycle, so no real motor function loss.
I'm pretty well aware that the HP universe gives a lot of leeway of the disease progressing into a rarer, magical variant, but to do even that, I need something to start with.
