This red-haired witch had a Portrait that hung in the Grand Staircase at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An inscription on her portrait read "Ætatis Sue XVII,"[1] indicating that she was aged seventeen when the portrait was painted, as aetatis suae is Latin for "at the age of."[2]

Behind the scenes

  • This witch may have died sometime prior to 1993, as many portraits hung at Hogwarts Castle depicted deceased individuals.
  • The witches portrait is based off of Lady Kytson.
