Aríella Ragnheiður Ingolfsson was born on a cold winter day, December 11th, 2011, to Sigríður and Vilhjálmur Ingolfsson, in the Icelandic town of Njarðvík. Her family was financially unstable, but her father made a good amount of money, and that was enough for them. Aríella is an only child, but didn't mind, as an introvert, she found comfort in being in her room alone. She did have a lot of cousins on her mother's side, the Albertsons, who lived in Reykjavík. She doesn't remember much about them, because they moved to England when she was only three years old. She didn't get the chance to meet Christine and Toby, because they weren't born in Iceland, but England. She remembers a few things, though: Hazel was extremely kind, Priscilla was a bit distant, but seemed to like Aríella. Alex was... the same as Priscilla. Jubilee was also really young, so Aríella couldn't really define her.
Aríella liked going to the city Reykjavík, but enjoyed the quietness of her own home. When it was. Her parents often argued, though. More than often. A few times a day. Which is basically how Aríella got her independence. She went to school, but didn't really have that many friends, because she enjoyed spending her time alone. Back to her home life. Her parents finally realized they barely had anything in common, and they ended up divorcing when Aríella was eight years old. Which was not the best idea in the world. Because Aríella's family was stable, but that was only because her father made enough money. So Aríella was left with low income.
She was later accepted into the Icelandic School of Magic. She was miserable, and didn't have a lot of friends. Her first year was really bad. She went home for Christmas, and didn't like coming back. Her second year was just as bad. Her third year was a bit better, because she had one friend, and by the time it was her fourth year, she had three friends. She came back home in the summer to some fairly decent news: her mother's sister, Danielle, offered to have them live in her home. That meant Aríella would see her cousins after about thirteen years. She wasn't sure how that was going to be, especially when she knew she'd go to a new magic school, Hogwarts.
