Norah is an Irish half-blooded witch, with her father as the wizard in her family. She is exceptionally bright, but rather anxious and awkward unless she is familiar with those with whom she is talking to. Her mom left the family soon after her father finally told her about his status as a wizard. The pair have been living alone for some time now. They live on a quaint farm together just outside of Glendelough where they grow vegetables to sell to the muggles in town.
