    Appearance: Una could, and would, be quite ordinary if it weren’t for her bright red hair. Though, with the ability of a metamorphmagus, she can easily change her hair color to appear more ordinary if she really wanted to. She’s done so in foreign countries so as to not stand out overly much but prefers her natural red locks over most anything else. Otherwise she stands at a pleasant five foot two inches and boasts a slender sort of build. Her curves aren’t overly voluptuous and she prefers it that way. Bright red hair, after all, helps her to stand out in a crowd plenty. Her eyes are a bright blue. She doesn’t worry too much about being in the height of fashion and prefers simply to be as comfortable as possible while still looking respectable. If there’s something she can skip on attire wise, she does. She is right handed.
    1862: In the wee morning hours of a blizzard, Grady and Muirenn welcome their first daughter into the world.
    1864: Another daughter is born, Finley.
    1866: Another daughter, and final child, is born, Eireen. With the final Walsh child’s arrival brings Una’s first signs of magic. While “helping” Oran with some chores in the barn, Una steps too close to one of the more volatile stallions and is kicked only to bounce off a wall and remain unharmed though has to be stopped from attempting the “fun game” once again.
    1870: Oran leaves for school and Una isn’t all that happy that he gets to go on such a grand adventure leaving her behind.
    1873: When Tierney leaves for school, Una is even more upset than when Oran left. Feeling much closer to him, she refuses to speak to anyone for weeks following his departure and instead spends as much time as possible with the animals on the farm. Her abilities at a metamorphmagus are made evident during this time as well as her hair never seems to stay one color for long, especially when her family tries to get her to talk to them.
    1874: Una leaves for school and finds herself in Thunderbird, little surprise to the rest of the Walsh family. She proves to take after both parents in their own respective ways. A love for animals and taking care of those injured. A focus is put into classes early on that involve creatures and anything that helps in the healing arts.
    1881: With her schooling finished, she begins working under both her parents and does what she can to apply her mother’s healing skills to the world of creatures her father tends.
    1883: Una meets a gentleman from Britain and is convinced she’s found the love of her life. He’s attentive and kind. He even manages to win Tierney over. He ends up spending a lot of time around the family’s farm and proves to have good intuition when it comes to animals, making Una fall even more in love. It isn’t long before she receives her first kiss and is certain she’ll be with him for the rest of her life.
    1884: All hopes and dreams of a happily ever after are crushed when the gentleman vanishes in the middle of the night. Not even a note is left behind, he’s just simply gone. Una is quite understandably left heartbroken. Before the new year begins, Tierney suggests travelling abroad to further their knowledge of creatures. With their parents’ approval, Una is quick to join him in hopes of forgetting the man who stole and crushed her heart. Before they leave, Una has a bit of a temper tantrum in the barns late one night. Kicking and throwing things about along with a good amount of non-ladylike words spewing from her mouth, she garners the attention of a jarvey (foul mouthed ferret) the family had been rehabbing after finding it with a leg stuck in a bear trap. The three legged creature takes a liking to her and tells her as much, surprising her when there isn’t an insult accompanied with it. He stakes her as his own pet and is rarely seen anywhere but with Una.
    1887: After years of travelling about the world learning about and helping all the creatures they can find, Una begins correspondence with her cousin Eavan. Soon arrangements are made for them to meet in Irvingly and see the zoo Eavan has begun working at. Tierney and Una are able to secure lodging in Irvingly, planning to stick around for a short time without the slightest idea that Una’s life could very well be flipped upside down with just one chance encounter.
    Personality: Adventurous. Vibrant. Kind. Blunt. Traveller. Active. Daring.
