About Me

Ariella Loxley

- seventh year

Half ghost

At fourteen, Ariella was practicing magic above her year, magic that she shouldn't have been dabbling in. The bright young witch thought she could handle it and had researched extensively before attempting the spell. It was merely supposed to make her ghostlike for a day, enough to experience the sensation to better write her paper. Something backfired.

It lasted too long. After an hour into the second day, the girl visited the hospital wing. After a few tests, the diagnoses was presented to her: she had misplaced a word, causing the spell to reverse, and almost permanently. She would be a ghost except for one day a month. The way to reverse the accident had yet to be determined, though her professors were hopeful it could be found.

She would continue to age as normal, though to spare her pain and torment from her classmates, the professors decided she could study privately and stay within the castle. It was safest for her. She could use the school's extensive library to research her condition herself while the Ministry also looked into it.

Her family left her there at the school. They loved her, but they couldn't stand being unable to touch her. It broke all of their hearts, but it was hopeful that her condition would be fixed quickly.

It has been two years with no progress.
