Trix Knightly joined Hogwarts as a fifth-year Ravenclaw at the beginning of the 2017 school year. Trix transferred from Beauxbatons as she had to move to the United Kingdom due to her mother being offered a position at the Department of International Magical Cooperation at the British Ministry of Magic. Her father, a muggle, is a maritime biologist and studies all kinds of muggle sea creatures. During her years at Beauxbatons, Trix had taken an interest in magical creatures as well as various magical cultures all over the wizarding world. She wanted to pursue these interests at Hogwarts and therefore joined the Care of Magical Creatures Club and the Quibbler. After graduating, Trix would like to combine both of these interests and find work in the field of magical creatures on an international level.
