11-year-old Leah is a gentle soul. She loves all animals and magical creatures and decided at the age of 4 that she wanted to be a vegetarian.
Having been home-schooled by her Mama since she was 5, she doesn't have any friends her age. She is quite shy and feels insecure when she's around others.
Despite her timidity, she is also a very curious girl who loves to learn and explore. Drawing and reading are her favourite pastimes. Additionally, Leah is stubborn; once she has decided on something, it's hard to change her mind.
Leah is short, light-skinned, and wears her mouse-brown hair at shoulder length.
Born and brought up in the Swiss Alps, Leah is the child of a Swiss-German Muggle baker and a British-American magizoologist. She is a native speaker of Swiss German, German, and English, and she can speak a bit of French as well. Her Dad attended RMI and encouraged her to enrol at the school.
