    She looks are far from the raven-haired and dark-eyed beauty from the narrative of Edgar Allan Poe. In fact, Ligeia shares more similarities to the character Lady Rowena in appearance than the maiden who she shares a name with. Ligeia stands at a height of 5'3" and has an average weight. She has light complexion, blonde curls and bright blue eyes. She is slender and curvy due to the usage of corsets. As she comes from a rich family, Ligeia tends to follow the latest trends in muggle fashion though she has recently developed fondness for wizard robes. Her dominant hand would be her left.

    1865| Mr and Mrs Baudelaire were blessed with another daughter. The rather pretty baby was doted and adored by the household until...

    1867| The final daughter was born and named Antigone. Honestly, the almost two year old girl was excited for the new addition to their family but after a few weeks she found the baby more troublesome than she looke.

    1868-1870| Her childhood was relatively normal. She often played with her sisters and cousins as well as being under the care of the governess. Lig was very close to her eldest sister as Leonie was mature and someone she could confined to but if only she weren't so serious. Antigone on the other hand, despite being at each other's throat almost daily, likes her just a tiny bit more and secretly has a soft spot for her. Her affection is usually shown through a lot of teasing.

    1871| The poor maid who so happened to pass by the two arguing sisters became the victim of Ligeia's magic as her skin turned green.

    1875| Due to reasons, the family moves to the English countryside. She was disappointed that they had to move far away from the place she called home and  she was sad as she won't be able to attend Beauxbaton.

    1876-1878|She was sent to Hogwarts and was sorted in Slytherin, the house of the cunning and ambitious, which was perfect for Ligeia. Academic-wise the snake was intelligent and excelled in her studies especially in Transfiguration. The one flaw in her grade would be on her First and Second year where she was frequently seen in the visiting the healer due to injuries at Flying Class. Ligeia has also a tendency to become lazy and not study. She had also been know to heavily tease those who she thinks are inferior to her. In her third year, she chose Arithmancy, Divination and Ancient studies as her elective. Her younger sister also joins her in Slytherin.

    1879-1880| She later tones down her bullying and tries to be more serious in her studies as she aims to become prefect although another was chosen over her.

    Her OWLs Scores:
    CHARMS — O

    1882| She returns for her NEWTs with Defense Against The Dark Arts, Transfiguration,Charms, Ancient Studies for her classes. She is also engaged to Mr. Nero Bloxam. She find him neither attractive nor pleasant. The only good thing about him was he looked easy to manipulate (or Kill), which Lig intented to do when they get married.

    Her NEWTs Score:
    CHARMS — O

    1883| She graduates and Mr Bloxam’s scandalous relation to a mer caused their betrothal to be broken. Ligeia was secretly pleased.

    1885| Antigone is wed to TIberius Lestrange. She and her parents also moved to Wellingtonshire, Hogsmeade while their former house was still used by them in the summer.

    1886-1887| Both her sisters are married and had children. This places a large amount of pressure in Ligeia to get married as well. She sometimes wished that her parents would just betroth her again and be done with it but she at least wanted a husband who was pleasant.
