About Me

Laila Corrine Penrose

Left in front of a muggle orphanage, wrapped up in a blanket and tucked neatly into a small baby carriage, the little baby Laila had nowhere to call home. The woman who ran the orphanage had found the crying child just before a major storm was about to hit, saving the child from the possible cold. Around the baby's tiny left wrist was a small bag attached by a miniature decorative, almost velvet rope. Inside was a check for $17 million, and a small note:

My name is Laila, and today is my first birthday. Please use the enclosed money for my care, and treat me as you would treat your own precious girl. Mother had to leave, and I'm all alone, but she always said her baby girl was extremely special. Thank you, ever so much.

Laila stayed in the orphanage until she was 8 years old, when she finally started to show signs of her powers. To the muggles, she was nothing but a strange child, cursed with by some horrid trickery, and thought to have bad luck. They gave her everything they had that belonged to her and sent her out onto the streets, for fear she might curse the other children. She then began the search for her mother.
