    Appearance: Eavan stands at an average five foot one, but has a fair few curves. Her auburn hair falls straight around a round face. She has her father’s jaw, though it is softened into feminine features. Her eyes are a slate grey-blue set beneath full lashes. Her rather pale skin burns easily in the sunlight, but she hardly cares as she is too fond of the outdoors to stay inside. Eva most often dresses practically for her hands-on work with animals in sturdy cotton and worn boots and rarely dresses up if she can help it. In addition to bright red hair she has inherited her mother's smattering of freckles across her cheeks and nose. She is left handed.

    October 13th, 1863 | Conall and Nola MacKay, a pair of Irish immigrants to the United States give birth to a daughter to be named Eavan Ainsley. The pregnancy comes as a complete surprise as the pair had just married the previous December. Due to complications with the pregnancy and their nomadic lifestyle, the MacKays decide not to have any more children. Eva proves to be a happy and easy baby however.

    1866-1869 | The MacKays move from their home in Nova Scotia to pursue a job opportunity for Conall in Australia.

    Summer 1869 | On a visit to Conall's family in Wexford, Ireland, Eavan is tailing along after her older cousins when the group decide to take a dip in a lake on the family property. Eva gets too close to the reeds and is pulled under by a pair of grindylows. She has no idea how long she was under, but one of her cousins managed to free her. Ever since she had not had a fondness for deep water or swimming.

    1870 | Eavan displays her first sign of magic by spontaneously summoning medical supplies for her father who was helping an injured diricawl. The baby diricawl, affectionately named Bastien, sparks Eva’s interest in magical birds.

    1872 | With their daughter approaching school age, Conall and Nola decide to return to North America and settle in the forests New Hampshire in the United States so Eavan can attend school at Ilvermorny.

    1875-1882* | Finally  her year to go off to school arrives. She very tearfully leaves Bastien behind with her parents and takes the young family cat, Boras, with her. She very obviously excels in Care of Magical creatures, but also finds herself doing well in potions and herbology. Her time is most often spent in the greenhouses or on the grounds with the Creatures professor. Eva focuses on those in hopes to become a magizoologist like her father.

    May 1882 | Upon graduation, Eavan joins her father for an apprenticeship. Their large piece of land in New Hampshire boasts a unicorn, a pair of hippogriffs, a small herd of diricawls, an augurey, and some nifflers. They also work with regular animals native to the territory. The MacKays mostly work on rehabilitating animals to release the creatures back into the wild, but sometimes cannot and therefore keep them.

    March  1884 | Nola becomes ill with a severe case of pneumonia and passes away. Distraught, Conall begins to relocate their current animals in an effort to move. With nothing else to do but follow along, Eavan finds her home uprooted and she's a little disoriented.

    July 1884 - To add insult to injury, Eavan and Conall learn that Nola's brother, his wife and two of their children lost their lives in a tragic situation in Hogsmeade, though they do not get full details.

    September 1884 | With most of their homestead gone, Conall and Eavan pick up the pieces and find something new. Conall accepts a position in the Amazon to study creatures there, but the weather disagrees with Eavan immensely and she falls ill. The research trip is set to last two years, but Eavan decides to let her father have his time to mourn on his own.

    December 1884 | After reaching out to several relatives and beyond, Eavan finds herself somewhere to stay with her Uncle Fergus’ sister-in-law, Sybella Winterdowne. After spending Christmas with her father, Eavan packs up her few belongings and head to Irvingly where her extended family has offered to take her in. Rumors of a zoo opening near the town give Eavan a bit of a sense of purpose and she intends to seek out Mr. Zachary Podmore to find out more.
    *going on the guess that the Ilvermorny is 7 years like Hogwarts
