    Ailsa Mellis
    In Character
    Full Name: Ailsa Mellis
    Nicknames: Hag
    Birthdate: December 20th, 1865
    Current Age: 20 years
    Race: Hag
    Occupation: Baby Flesh Connoisseur
    Reputation: 2
    Social Class: Lower
    Mother - Eilidh Mellis
    Father - Someone drunk enough to bone a hag.
    Appearance: Though not as aged looking as her more mature hag kin, Ailsa looks older than her mere twenty years (by human standards, not hag standards) and boasts her fair share of warts on her face and other places. (That's not a euphemism for once.) Her complexion is pale and in certain lighting it looks a little jaundiced, while her hair is an equally pale blonde which makes her look even more pale. Her finger nails are fairly long and not very well kept, frequently dirty and cracked. Her only dress is very dirty and visibly worn, and the cloak she often wears is threadbare and full of moth holes. She does not wear shoes and only has eight toes because hag.
    1865: Ailsa is born.
    1871: Her mother leaves one day and never returns. This is the earliest point in time Ailsa can clearly remember.
    1876: Still living in the tiny hut in the Forbidden Forest that she was born in, Ailsa's existence up until this point has been very solitary. She decides to wander one day and finds herself in Hogsmeade which was still largely undeveloped. She starts making a habit out of visiting every other week or so. On one occasion, a woman makes the grave mistake of trusting her with her baby. Having never seen a human baby before, she is deeply fascinated by the thing and picks it up. Naturally it starts wailing and it terrifies her. Being afraid, she does the natural thing and runs but neglects to put it down first. Long story short, she ended up taking it home with her and it wouldn't stop crying. It didn't take long to die without nourishment and figuring it was like rabbits and other woodland creatures she usually ate, she tried eating it and found it was by far the best thing she had ever eaten. OMNOMNOMNOMNOM.
    1877: Bitches start moving to Hogsmeade like WOAH.
    1879: Ailsa is exploring the slums when she finds a baby left unattended. She snatches it and later eats it.
    1881: At fifteen years old, she can no longer pass as a very ugly, warty child and people start recognizing her more and more frequently for what she is. Used to being mostly ignored, being treated like, well, a hag distresses her. It's not just the possibility of a good meal that draws her out of the forest, but the abundance of other humanoid creatures attracts her because she's lonely.
    1885: Ailsa is still living in her tiny hut deep in the forest, on rare occasions kidnapping a baby for dindins.
    Personality: Sensitive. Naive. Resourceful. Creative. Immature. HUNGERS FOR THE FLESH OF INFANTS.
