Ella Mockridge was born and raised in a city near the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was sorted into Wampus, and spent two happy years at the establishment. When she was thirteen, Headmaster Agilbert Fontaine decided that Hogwarts would be a better fit for her, as she was an intrapersonal learner. Shortly before her third year, she flew across the Atlantic Ocean (on an airplane, of course) and climbed aboard the Hogwarts Express. While on the train, she befriended the fourth year, Brandon Fortescue, and the sixth year, Raven Malfoy. Mockridge was given a sorting into Ravenclaw house, and joined Fortescue and Malfoy at the table. Since then, Mockridge has been known to be a cat person, have an unhealthy obsession with Wandlore, and being the only person ever to truly befriend the mysterious Sorting Hat. It has also been rumored that Mockridge is a Legilimens, but when questioned she replied “I know what you’re thinking, but can assure you, it’s just a rumor.” Mockridge can usually found in the Ravenclaw common room, poring over old books about Divination and Ancient Runes.
