A waifish brunette with amber eyes, dainty facial features, and long fingers that, had she been born to a more priviledged family, might be praised as perfect for piano, she stands at a rather average five feet, two inches bare-footed. Still, she does carry herself with dignity, typically wearing simple clothes of grey, blue, white, or soft yellow. Her only posession of any monetary worth, a silver hair comb, is almost always integral to her hair styles. She is left-handed, and typically keeps her wand over her right ear when she isn't using it actively.
1859: Eliora Coulston, fourth of four children, is born to Thomas and Myrtle on a frigid winter's morning. Thomas insists upon naming her for his grandmother, and Myrtle insists on calling her Ellie.
1863: In June, Thomas disappears, very suddenly and with no explanation to the rest of the Coulston family. In July, Myrtle inquires on, and gains, a new position in a magical house in south London, as a lady's maid. Ellie is practically attached to her side, while her brothers all find ways to help in the stables.
1868: Ellie's eldest brother begins Hogwarts on scholarship.
1869: Ellie's second older brother begins Hogwarts, also on scholarship.
1870: Ellie's third older brother begins Hogwarts, another on scholarship.
1871: Ellie finally begins Hogwarts, sorted into Hufflepuff. She's the first to attend Hogwarts without scholarship, and she spends much of her free time in the library.
1873: Ellie's eldest brother departs from school after completing his OWLs.
1875: Ellie's third oldest brother departs after completing his OWLs. Ellie takes Care of Magical Creatures, Divination and Astronomy as her OWL courses.
1876: Ellie completes her OWLS, in the same year that her second older brother completes his NEWTs as the only sibling to do so. At the end of the school year, she takes up a position as a maid in the household her mother is employed in. During this time, Myrtle grooms her only daughter to follow the same path, teaching her little tips to being an efficient lady's maid.

1881: Myrtle's hand coordination begins to decline early in the year. She enlists Ellie as a helper, instructing her explicitely and acting more as supervisor than as lady's maid herself.
1883: In mid-summer, Ellie's mother passes away in her sleep, cause unclear. The lady of the house decides to keep Ellie on as a new lady's maid while she searches for another.
1886: The lady of the house, who was incredibly picky over the entire situation, finds a suitable, twelve-year-older replacement for the still-a-novice lady's maid. She spends a couple of months bunking with her eldest brother, a valet with the same family, before news of an employment opportunity reaches her ears.
