Head of Ravenclaw/Treasurer – Isobel McCreavy

When she’s not doing that, she’s putting Hermione to shame with how much homework she does, slowly taking over the world (she’s a little [Le]strange), and overcompensating for her dull life with puns while waiting for her eyebrows to grow back (spell gone awry… it was a Siriusly Black day….don’t ask).

Which, she is, she’s got a California birth certificate to prove it. When she isn’t hiding out in the Holroyd Building, she really enjoys sports such as Quidditch, Rugby and MMA (despite only being 5’1 on a good day.)
