    Dancing has definitely had effect on Ysabella’s body. She stands a little under average at 5 foot level, and her small frame has limited curves from her prolonged dancing, though she has the advantage of being able to move very elegantly and lightly. Her slightly angular face, set off with blue-green eyes and full lips against her olive toned and lightly freckled skin, is framed by medium brown hair that rather annoyingly tends to unruly curls that have a habit of escaping unless she can be bothered to curl it more neatly and use more hair pins than is probably advisable. Her mode of dress tends to take one of two routes depending on her mood- either very ethereal and light in pastel colours, or in more muted and sensible cuts. She is right handed.
    1866 Ysabella is born and named after her paternal grandmother as is custom. She has two older brothers, who delight in teasing and taunting her from day 1, though it quickly becomes clear that she can give as good as she gets. Her father owns a famous dance school in Milan, and with her mother working as secretary there.
    1869 At the age of three, Ysabella begins dance lessons. These are mainly just improving coordination and balance at this stage, but she takes delight in getting to go to them like the young ladies of the surrounding wealthy families.
    1870 A younger sister is born, Giana after their maternal grandmother, and Ysabella cannot wait to teach her how to dance.
    1872 Unlike many ladies of her class in Britain, Ysabella is given the chance to learn ballet for in Italy, attitudes to it are fairly different. She learns it along side her other dances which range from traditional or folk to the more ornate court dances, attending as many classes as her father and governess will let her. Giana also dies of chill that autumn.
    1873 Ysabella displays her first sign of magic, turning her brother’s coat bright yellow just before they went out for a family walk, in revenge for him hiding her favourite gloves.
    1874 Another sister is born, and as custom dictates is also named Giana after their grandmother and deceased sister.
    1877 Just before her eleventh birthday (and a year earlier than she would have done if she went to Hogwarts), Ysabella leaves for Incantima. She’s excited to learn magic, though takes care that she doesn’t fall out of practice with her dancing.
    1884 In her final year and realising she won’t be able to make a career of dancing (that would be unseemly, of course), Ysabella is glad for the distraction when she is chosen for PMG.
