Life Before Transataumancy

It wasn't me. It was the spirits.

– Andromeda Selwyn

I will not play these games with you anymore. This is over!

– Thelxinoë Selwyn

She began seeing spirits when she was six. They gathered in large numbers in public, and then at her home around her little sister Antigone. Sometimes she saw them crowded around her father.

Andromeda frequently witnessed spirits around her mother as well, who claimed she could not see or feel them, which terrified Andromeda. When she saw them literally flee her older brother Creon it made her curious what it was he did that made them run from him. By the age of ten Andromeda already had multiple encounters different ghosts in two different homes. When she was younger the apparitions she saw were beautiful, and frightening. As she grew up seeing the spirits more frequently she began to notice the signs that one was near. Her first use of magic was her ability to keep them away from her family, mostly from her mother and her little sister. These spirits no one else had been able to see or feel Andromeda believed were trying to bring harm to her family, she forced herself to find ways to drive them out of her home.

After her mother and father spoke with each of their parents about the problems they were having with Andromeda, her grandparents had something special sent to their granddaughter. a 'gift'. Andromeda was give a necklace with a Glowing Gemstone capable of releasing the spirit in possessing her. Andromeda no longer blacked out when she made contact with a spirit, she was instead trapped. After being released for the first time since receiving her grandparents 'gift' she ran home, took off the necklace and tossed it in a drawer. Andromeda never wanted to wear that necklace again, the feeling of being a passenger in her own body was terrible. All she wanted to do was forget. She was not her usual self for days after the fact. Once she felt the presence of another spirit in the house, that familiar chill under her skin, she put the necklace back on, and promised to never take it off.

Beauxbâtons

Thelxinoë and Orfeus made the decision to force their children to attend Beauxbâtons.

Beauxbatons
Bellefeuille Crest

Creon graduated in 2025, Antigone began her first year in 2026. Andromeda attended as well, until her fourth year. Apparently Andromeda has "a behavioral problem" believed to stem from issues in her home-life. Her parents remained uninformed due to Andromeda's constant interfering with an ingenious use of strangers, and magic to fill the role of parental units. By Andromeda's own admission she never felt her parents needed to be involved because she had not done anything wrong. She served all of her punishments for her disruption with no complaints. While negative reinforcement did not prevent her from making the same choices, nevertheless she restrained herself, in class at least. Unfortunately Andromeda was caught over four dozen times pulling pranks on students, and faculty alike. When she was even caught in a compromising situation with a fellow student, it was the final straw and ultimately she was expelled.

Ravenclaw Crest (Gif)

Andromeda was sorted into Ravenclaw upon her arrival to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was also named female Prefect for Ravenclaw House during her first year which was also her fifth year the 2025-2026 school year.

Prefect-Ravenclaw

Her application was a joke, and she thinks being picked was a fluke. She did not know a single student in her house ...

The only person close to being called her friend at Hogwarts was BG (short for Bubblegum), a girl from another house by the name of Kylie she met before the beginning of her fifth year.
Ravenclaw Quidditch by highway woman
The only other people she 'know of' by years end were her fellow house Prefect Henry Whitacre, her Defense Against the Dark Arts partner Hollingsworth, and the Crimson Sage better known as Doll-face or Becky Bradbury. After passing over the chance to re-apply for Prefect, she threw her name in for Quidditch captain. She was rejected by her Head of House in her overly enthusiastic attempt to take up quidditch at Hogwarts. She was however accepted by the Team Captain as Seeker.
DurmstrangCrest

She left Hogwarts after sixth year opting to spend her final year of school studying the Dark Arts at Durmstrang Institute. Her background with Defensive Magic thanks in part to her nights spent combing books for protective spells, and the days spent memorizing incantations and runes to ward of spirits, became a huge asset in her magical aptitude.

Once she was putting her brain to use she was unbearable. Dueling, while in the North, was her favorite pastime.

Personality

Irrepressible - Hazardous, Unorthodox, Malefic, Extramundane

Andromeda can be an overwhelming personality type, and rather intimidating when she feels the need to be. She thinks that she caters to her bad side, and she feels the same about everyone else in the world. She does not believe in the "benefit of the doubt", and she rarely puts the needs of another person before the wants/needs of herself. The people considered to be her "family" by blood or by choice thus far in life are the only exception. Andromeda is the type of person to hold pure malevolence lying beneath the surface of her smoldering narrowed eyes.

She is not a difficult person to find; she is the girl in the Transfiguration Courtyard tying nooses in rope, or at the West Tower Battlements sharpening her potions knife.

Mannerisms: Swearing, Rolling her eyes
Peculiarities: Spectrophilia - Abnormal affection for specters or ghosts

Epistaxiophobia - Fear of Nosebleeds

Worst bad habit: Takes stupid bets/dares for small amounts of money
Quirks: Medium (Transataumancy)
Pet Peeves: Ranting

Appearance

Cassie Ventura

Andromeda has a heart shaped face, and dark, brown black hair, it is curly but she often straightens it. She has her father's rich, glowing light brown skin, and her mother's deep, dark brown eyes. She thinks her eyes are too far apart, but most people say they are in proportion to the rest of her face. She has thin lips, and yet she is still able to form the most beautiful smile, or a serious pout when she wants to.

Relationships

Family Member Relationship with them
Father Orfeus and Andromeda are still as close as they were when she was younger. He doesn't believe her when she complains about being possessed, but he listens, and that is all she ever wanted.
Mother Thelxinoë and Andromeda were very close when Andromeda was young. After Andromeda began having experiences with the spirits her mother distanced herself from her former favorite daughter.
Older Brother Creon was civil with Andromeda, until Antigone came along. He wanted a little brother, and for the second time he got a sister. Another sister he did not want.
Younger Sister Antigone use to look up to Andromeda, that was until she started acting strange. Antigone replaced Andromeda as her mother's favorite daughter.
