    - Childhood -
    Gertrude Agnes Baker is the second child born to Nicholas and Anna Baker in Manchester in the June of 1867. She has one older sibling, a brother called James. Due to Anna being Irish-born, the Bakers are a Catholic family. Over the next few years, Gertrude receives three more siblings, brothers Nicholas and Thomas, and a sister, Nora.

    Aged ten, Gertrude finishes her first stretch of education and goes to work in the local cotton mill. However only a year later the July brings a letter and a visit. Gertrude is visited by a teacher from a school in Scotland, who informs her and her family that she is a witch. Unsurprisingly, it's a shock, and is generally convinced she may be evil until she has spent a few months at Hogwarts.

    - Hogwarts -
    From 1878 to 1884 Gertrude is a hard-working and studious Hogwarts student. For these seven years, she is a Ravenclaw and fits the bill quite well. It is a nice time for Gertrude, as it gives her an education and provides her with a lifestyle she will never be able to experience ever again, and she enjoys it thoroughly.

    - Post-Hogwarts -
    After leaving Hogwarts, Gertrude begins an internship in the Department of Law Enforcement with the intention of becoming a lawyer there. With this professional move, Gertrude is able to move her family to Irvingly, which is great all around.

    - Occupation History -
    1878-1885 | Ravenclaw student.
    1885-1886 | Intern in the DMLE.
    1886-1887 | Clerk in the DMLE.
