Quinn Maya Everby was born in 1978 to Joseph Edmund Everby and his wife Gabrielle in Hidden River, New Brunswick. Raised by an english-speaking father and french-speaking mother, Quinn's proximity to diverse cultures and Metis traditions gave her a deep appreciation for the earth and both its magical and mundane properties. This gave her a special aptitude in potions, herbology and caring for magical creatures, as well as a special reverence for history and the ritual practice of storytelling.
Quinn's magical heritage dates back to Josephina Flint, former Minister for Magic in the early 1800s belonging to the Sacred 28. Some notable figures from her family include the famous HIT wizard Edmund Everby, magilinguist Quinndolyn Oleria Everby and their mother Serafina Burke, founder of the Maritime Institute of Higher Magical Education.
Serafina Burke was a relation of Caracterus Burke, founder of Bougin and Burke's Antique Shop, as well as his son, dragon racer Colonius Burke, and daughter Elizabeth Burke, former Headmistress of Hogwarts.
Quinn attended Hogwarts in the late 80s with the support of her distant relations. After graduating from Hogwarts, Quinn went to St Mungos for 4 years of vocational training in alchemy. Her research contributions garnered a great deal of attention and she was later recruited into the Department of Mysteries, translating ancient runes for a number of projects. Unfortunately, her experience at the Ministry was obstructed when she began to question some of the institution's outdated political structures.
As a result, Quinn left the Ministry at the age of 27 and became a more vocal advocate for social justice and a student of contemporary history. She transferred to MIHME, the Maritime Institute of Higher Magical Education where she eventually became an associate lecturer in the field of linguistics and sociology.
As a true Hufflepuff, Quinndolyn is a kind and nurturing person whose pursuits are always in the best interests of those around her. She loves all living creatures big and small and believes strongly in fairness, truth and justice.
