Eleanora Cartwright was born April 25th, 1035 (or whatever year makes her 25) to Richard and Mary Cartwright, a pure-blood, and half-blood, respectively. She is the youngest of five. She and her sister, Elisabeth book-end the boys. It was a bit of a lonely growing up for her, as Elisabeth was married off when Eleanora was just a girl. Eleanora was brought up with a proper young lady's education, but the one allowance she was given was a bow and arrow.
Eleanora's first signs of magic were when she was young, and her mother was teaching her how to weave tapestry's. Patience, at the time, was not a strong suit for Eleanora, and she accidentally set fire to the whole thing. Since that time, patience, and decorum were two virtues drilled into her for the rest of her life.
At age eleven, Eleanora received her letter to Hogwarts and she was sorted into Ravenclaw. She thrived in the school environment, taking in everything she could learn in her short seven years. To her parents dismay, she did not find a suitable husband while at Hogwarts, and after living at home for several years, Eleanora returned to the school to teach.
Patience is something Eleanora strives to find on a daily basis. She knows of it's importance, and therefore she does all she can to maintain it. Due to this, she has a bit of a short temper. Being the youngest of five, Eleanora is accustomed to being a bit spoiled, and she loves the finer things in life. But make no mistake, when she has a bow in her hand, she can be just as rough and tumble as they come.
