Isla is tall but slender. She is never seen looking as anything less than perfect and always prefers to keep her long hair down. Her complexion is pale compared to the rest of her family due to her dislike of being outside for any long periods of time.Dressing Style:
Isla normally dresses in dark colors, but she can be seen wearing anything elegant. She absolutely refuses to wear anything muggle related, considering them not only horribly uncouth but also dreadfully uncomfortable as well. She is always wearing some form of heels to make herself just a bit taller.PersonalityCharacter Description:
Isla is devoted to her family and friends; she will always do whatever they ask so long as it does no damage to her or their reputation. Reputation and status is everything to the brunette; but with the people currently in charge her family’s reputation is relatively low. This has made her despise the current system and anyone associated it, particularly mudbloods and their ignorant followers. She has made it a life goal to see them back where they belong—preferably in the ground, but she’ll accept their rightful status below purebloods too. Isla comes off as rather distant or even sometimes blatantly rude. She is a vegan, eating vegetables only grown out of her own personal garden since she does not trust nor want any mudblood taint near her food. She is ambidextrous though prefers to use quick quills. She also writes any of her article notes in Ancient Runes.Quirks:

Lucretia Greengrass (nee Noor)Background:
Isla grew up in a rich pureblood family. Her family managed to maintain their wealth due to her great-great grandfather’s careful budgeting and the fact that the Greengrass family remained neutral during the war. Growing up Isla believed that neutrality to be a flaw of her family, since it obviously did not help their social standing very much and resulted in the filthy mudbloods running their precious society.
She had been practicing magic since her first case of accidental magic, mostly because her parents did not trust the curriculum at Hogwarts and they wanted their daughter to be able to control herself enough not to break priceless family artifacts; which she has been known to do in fits of anger. Her parents were rarely ever home, but when they were Isla had to undergo strict lessons to conceal her emotions. These lessons resulted in her current view of showing emotions in public; they also lent to her ability to mimic an emotion at will, which she found incredibly useful during her Hogwarts years.
At age eleven, Isla got her Hogwarts letter and was sorted into Slytherin which allowed her to further cultivate her acting abilities, particularly being able to cry at will. She found herself very good at potions and later Ancient runes and Arithmacy. However she struggled with classes like Defense against the Dark Arts (mostly because she did not see why they had to be defended against such useful magic), Care of Magical Creatures (which she dropped after the first year of taking it), and Divination. However she spent a vast amount of her time studying on the classes she struggled with, ensuring that she got nothing less than an O as her overall grade in the class.
Once she graduated Hogwarts Isla attended Hogwarts University where she majored in Journalism. She spent all four years taking various classes and interning under a copious amount of ‘family friends’, which ultimately allowed her to get a job as a reporter for the Daily Prophet. As a reporter, she tries to show the 'truth' of their society and the corruption that is in it; particularly the corruption related to the mudbloods and blood-traitors that govern the society. Isla has some current issues at work with the current Editor, Beline, a mudblood loving witch that Isla believes should not be in charge of the news. This causes some tension at work, though Isla is trying her best to see the witch fired.
