Elsbeth Blaine was born in Edinburgh to two muggle parents. Her father, Gregory Blaine, is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Edinburgh. Her mother was a homemaker until her untimely death ten years ago of tuberculosis. This death made both father and daughter unbelievably close—something that Elsbeth has found stressful to manage while at Hogwarts separated from her father.

Beyond this tragedy, Elsbeth’s childhood was a relatively normal one. She often spent time at the University, which did draw odd looks as a girl, but her father very much wanted her to have a strong sense of learning. Her favorite place was the library, where she’d struggle with books too advanced for her little mind.

Her first sign of magic came about age 6 when Gregory brought her to Edinburgh Zoo. They were looking at the fish pond when Els spotted one she could see wasn’t moving. She called at it and tried to feed it, but nothing happened. The fish was dead. So afraid and triggered of her mother’s memory, she managed to unknowingly dislodge a few of the rocks at the side of the pond so as to create a resting place for the dead fish. The move was small enough her father could attribute it to the effects of a heavy Scottish rain.

When her Hogwarts letter arrived, the family was shocked and Gregory found it hard to believe magic existed. But if it did, he wanted his girl to learn it and so he let her attend the magical school. At Hogwarts, Elsbeth was quiet in her first few years, preferring to keep a small group of friends. She poured her efforts into her studies, just as she was done in muggle school, and she found herself exceling in Charms in particular while Divination was difficult. With her skill in Charms, she became interested in dueling, but continues to seek avenues to advance all her studies.


Elsbeth tends to keeps to herself before she opens up to people. But once you have her trust, you have it forever. Patient and determined, she doesn't give up easily, especially on academic content. Although not traditionally artistic, she enjoys problem-solving and trying out new approaches to material and problems. While not particularly sporty, she enjoys coming out to support her peers at a quidditch match or a dueling match. She does enjoy adventure mostly because she likes investigating and finding out how things work. She'd pursue a quest through to its fullest danger if it meant that she learned something out of it. She is a team player, granted a quieter one, always looks out for those she's working with as best she can. She can be one track minded, however, and selfish in her pursuit of new information.


Elsbeth is fairly plain in her appearance. She does not take a lot of effort in the mornings, feeling that other things—like information—are far more important than beauty. As such, she wears a natural look. Her straight hair is a chestnut color and her eyes a bright blue. Her skin is a pale, perhaps described as 'fair' at best. Her body is long and lean, but not from exercise. It's more like occasionally skimping on food in favor of study sessions. Her nails are long and unvarnished. She wears her Hogwarts uniform well, always ensuring it is clean. Her casual wardrobe is mostly dresses and cardigans in earth tones. She enjoys scarves and knitted hats.
