Eslanda Autumn had embarked on a lifelong quest to acquire as much knowledge as she could as soon as she was born. Her father, a potioneer for an apothecary, always taught her to do her best. Her mother, a journalist who worked from home, had always taught her to dig for the truth, no matter the circumstances. In Eslanda’s view, knowledge was power, so she treasured her parent’s advice as her most prized possession.
At age five, Eslanda and her family moved to England after her father lost his job. Moving was a whole new experience for Eslanda, especially moving to another continent. As a natural worrier, Eslanda was quite nervous about starting first grade at a Muggle school, despite the fact that both her parents were magical. But, the experience ended up being fine, as Eslanda discovered some newfound interests such as writing stories, and her love for the sciences and languages strengthened, as did her dislike for athletics. She made plenty of new friends who she still communicates with to this day.
However, when Eslanda turned eleven, her life changed with one letter: her Hogwarts acceptance letter. Her parents gave her a choice. She could either continue her Muggle schooling and live life without magic, or she could attend Hogwarts, like her parents. In the end, Eslanda chose Hogwarts over her beloved Muggle school, out of sheer curiosity about where the experience would take her. Upon arrival at the school, Eslanda was sorted into Ravenclaw House, like her father. She continued upon her old habits: staying late into the night studying, spending Fridays at the library instead of having fun with her friends, and working to achieve and maintain an “O” average in all her classes. Though all the courses were interesting, Eslanda’s favorites were Alchemy, Ancient Runes, DADA, and one she’d never expected to love, History of Magic. In addition, Eslanda made several very close friends and discovered a newfound hobby, Quidditch. It was that one choice she made at age eleven about how she wanted to live her life that changed her, in the best way possible.
