Little is known about Peter's life before death. He was in love with a boy from the school, who rejected him. In despair Peter drowned himself, but regretted it. His death was ruled accidental.
When Stephen joined the Shades, he returned to Eton College to thank Peter for saving him. Stephen then activated the terminus on Peter. It is unknown if the device allowed Peter to 'move on' to an afterlife, or if Peter simply ceased to exist from that point on.
