Biography

Born into a wizarding family that resided somewhere in the British Isles, she grew up in a magical household.[4] During her formative years, she received her magical education, presumably by attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, like most magical children in their wizarding community.[5] She excelled in Muggle Studies.[6]

Sometime after her seventeenth birthday, Myra joined the Ministry of Magic in London, where she found employment in the Muggle Liaison Office in the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. in which capacity she was known to have served as one of several consultants called upon to lend their expertise to the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, alongside Sage Bragnam, Gethsemane Prickle and Omar Abasi during investigations relating to creature-related incidents. As such, Myra would sometimes help examine Muggle objects found by the Beast Division.[7]

At some point prior to the outbreak of The Calamity, she transferred to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and become a Magical Law Enforcement Officer, working for the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office. Following the establishment of their Ministry of Magic as the Calamity World Centre, she began to work with members of the then recently established Statute of Secrecy Task Force pursuing a career as an Auror to improve their spell casting.[8][9]

Personality and traits

An avid Muggle enthusiast who thoroughly enjoyed her job and the opportunity to work with other people, Myra was a friendly, well-meaning individual who were always happy to help out her colleagues, being friendly with people like Mathilda Grimblehawk, and her partner. While mild-mannered, she was not timid, being sufficiently confident in her own abilities to want to pursue a job within magical law enforcement later on in her career, proving her resolve.

  5. “Attendance is now compulsory for every young witch and wizard,” [Lupin] replied. “That was announced yesterday. It’s a change, because it was never obligatory before. Of course, nearly every witch and wizard in Britain has been educated at Hogwarts, but their parents had the right to teach them at home or send them abroad if they preferred.” - Remus Lupin, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
