Portrayed by Odeya Rush
Name: Ilsa Eirene Selwyn
Aliases: -
Birthday: Jan 25
Position: Hufflepuff
Lineage: Pure-blood


Possessing the slender build of a dancer, Ilsa moves with an ethereal grace. Although she is of an average height for her age, her long limbs and elegant posture make her appear taller. Her hair tumbles down her back in a cascade of unruly curls, brown tresses providing a striking contrast to her vivid blue eyes. Her features are often set into a thoughtful, far-off expression, lending a dream-like quality to her countenance.

Ilsa is clad in her Hogwarts uniform, the colors denoting her place in the house of Hufflepuff. A grey vest covers her pristine white collared shirt. Her pleated skirt skims her knees, just a hint of her bare legs revealed between skirt and stockings. A Hogwarts robe covers the ensemble, her black shoes peeking out from beneath its hem.


The second of three children born to Arthur Selwyn and Cornelia Selwyn nee Lovegood, Ilsa was born into a family that boasts a long line of pure-blood wizards. Growing up she had a loving, if occasionally exasperating, relationship with both her siblings - a brother two years her elder and a sister four years younger. Her father, a member of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad, was a tough exacting man who demanded obedience and rigorous discipline of his family. His high expectations were particularly difficult for Ilsa to meet, as she was often caught daydreaming or forgetting matters of importance. Cornelia, however, had a soft spot for her eldest daughter, who reminded her of her own Lovegood heritage and eccentricities.

Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Ilsa had hoped to follow in her older brother's footsteps and join the Ravenclaws. Yet she was unsurprised, and not entirely displeased, to be sorted into the House of Hufflepuff. She quickly settled into life at Hogwarts, taking great pleasure in meeting her new classmates. Though flighty and scatterbrained, she excelled in most of her studies. Potions proved to be quite a challenge for Ilsa, who struggled due to her absentminded mixing of ingredients often ending disastrously. During her third year, she chose electives in Care of Magical Creatures and Study of Ancient Runes and has remained an avid member of both the Arts Club and the Duelling Club throughout her years at Hogwarts.

Ilsa continues to devote herself to her studies while pursuing other interests on the side - namely the arts, particularly dancing and drawing. Although it was her childhood dream to one day join W.A.D.A. and pursue her love of the arts, she is considering setting that dream aside to pursue a different one… that of one day becoming an Auror. She hopes to accomplish great things while proving to her father that she can make something of her life.


12 inches, rowan, pliant, with a unicorn hair core.


Ilsa owns a little scops owl named Nyx. The pair can often be seen strolling across the castle grounds in the evenings before curfew, Nyx perched upon Ilsa's shoulder.

RP Hooks

  • Lover of the Arts: Ilsa loves to dance, sing, draw, anything related to the arts. Perhaps you share the same interests?
  • Flighty: Ilsa is often preoccupied with her thoughts, walking as though in a daydream. She also tends to flit from one task or conversation to the next. This distracted quality means she is often bumping into others or not paying attention to those around her until she's in the thick of things.
  • Too Honest: Ilsa tends to be too honest. It's not for lack of trying, it's simply that the words often slip out before she's had time to think about their effect. Honest to a fault, this means that she occasionally unwittingly frustrates or angers those around her.
  • Loyal to Family: Fiercely devoted to her family, she would do just about anything for them.
  • Political Views: Hailing from a strong pure-blood family, Ilsa is a purist and leans toward the Preservation Society's views. Despite this, she believes that unnecessary cruelty toward Muggle-borns serves no purpose and that pure-bloods should simply remain vigilant.


  • Wealth: Well-To-Do
  • Absentminded - Often daydreaming or lost in thought, Ilsa tends to be scatterbrained.
  • Honest To A Fault - Ilsa has a bad habit of speaking whatever is on her mind before she has truly considered her words. She generally has the best of intentions and doesn't realize how things might sound until she's already said them.
  • Graceful - She seems to have an innate sense of movement, moving with the grace of a dancer.
  • Naive - Having led a relatively sheltered childhood, Ilsa can sometimes come across as being naive and gullible.
