Sirius was born in 1960, into the "Most Noble and Ancient House of Black." As a child, he and his younger brother Regulus were pampered and spoiled, and were allowed to pretty much do as they pleased.
He and his brother were close, and they were close with their numerous cousins... namely Bellatrix, whom Sirius enjoyed bossing others around with. He was hot-headed and strong willed as a child, and listened to no one - which resulted in numerous accidents on his part... namely, a broken arm after tumbling out of a tree, a broken collar bone after trying to climb the side of the house, and a broken ankle, after he insisted he could jump out of a window, and land on his feet.
As Sirius got older, however, he began to hate the ideals of his family. He made friends easily, and was angry and confused when his parents cut some of those relationships off, based only on the purity of the person in questions' blood. When it came time for him to attend Hogwarts, he and his cousin Andromeda were quickly labelled the "black sheep" of the family, because they were sorted into Gryffindor.
Sirius was determined to be different from his family, and he was determined to prove that his views were right. He was already close with James Potter, who was accepted by his parents, because his last name carried weight around in the influential social circles. He quickly also became friends with Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, and Arabella Figg, and eventually with Lily Evans as well. Sirius was also close with Evan Rosier, a Slytherin boy who's only true friend was Sirius, and with his cousin, Andromeda.
During his Hogwarts years, Sirius was, in a word: Cool. In reality, he was as insecure and dorky as evryone else, but he was quite adept at acting like nothing mattered to him. He and James were smart, athletic, and had rather arrogant streaks, and they delighted in the attention they recieved from pranking, quidditch, and taunting fellow classmates. When the self-proclaimed 'Marauders' discovered that Remus was a werewolf, Sirius insisted they do something about it. In their fifth year, Sirius, James, and Peter became animagi.
When Sirius was fourteen, he discovered the opposite sex. And the same sex. No difference, really. He took advantage of his looks and enjoyed charming the trousers off anyone that looked his way... though as time went on, he realised that he had far more than a simple attraction to Remus, and when they were sixteen, they began dating.
