BackstoryFirst-year Mara Welsh puts her Slytherin cunning to good use earning enough galleons to afford her Hogwarts education. After her three older brothers turned out squibs, her parents had assumed Mara would display no more magic than a doormat, and budgeted accordingly. By the time they watched Mara bounce unharmed from a two-story building, it was too late.
She had accepted her position at Hogwarts under the assumption that a witch in the family would be more help than the part-time earnings of her three brothers combined, only to discover that she was strictly prohibited from using any magic outside of school whatsoever. And even if part-time jobs were a thing amongst Hogwarts students, which they clearly weren’t, she wasn’t allowed to visit Hogsmeade until third year. So here she was, stuck in the castle, every magnificent arch and golden sconce a reminder that all this self indulgence was leeching cash from her struggling family and as yet giving nothing in return.
