    Eilis has brown hair and brown eyes with a fair complexion. With a deceptively sweet smile and delicate features, Eilis gives off an air of innocence despite being the complete opposite of that. She stands at a not so imposing four feet, nine inches and has a slender build. Her wand hand is her right hand. Eilis dresses in wizarding fashions rather than muggle fashions.

    1867 - Eilis Hooligan is born.
    1868 - A brother is born.
    1869 - Elisabeth suffers a miscarriage but survives the ordeal.
    1870 - Another brother is born.
    1871 - Eilis shows her first signs of magic. The same year, her mother dies giving birth to a son named Liam. The baby survives.
    1872 - Liam dies of a childhood ailment.
    1877 - The family opts to live in London rather than follow the exodus to Hogsmeade.
    1878 - Eilis gets her Hogwarts letter and is later sent off to Hogwarts.
    1881 - Eilis gets into a physical altercation with an upper class female to 'defend the honor of her family name'. She is promptly expelled. Eilis has difficulty finding a job, even as a maid, so after a while, she doesn't bother with it. Instead, she helps around the house, helps Maire and her father deal with the younger Hooligan brood and does 'odd jobs' for acquaintances and her father.
    1884 - The carnival comes to town and Eilis can't resist the lure of so many pickpocket targets. Thus, she is stuck in Hogsmeade when the barrier goes up. Eilis finds the fire that later hits Wellingtonshire to be quite profitable as she loots several places and manages to avoid being caught.
