Boopsy had been born at Hogwarts, to two house elves rather close to the end of their days. On orders to revitalize the House elf stock a bit—it was getting rather low as more elves got up in age—by the Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. Boopsy spent years following both of her parents around, learning all their house elf tricks that did not already come naturally to her.
When she was just eighteen summers Boopsy had the unfortunate chance to meet one Ms. Hermione Granger. With her mother deceased only a few months, the young house elf had no clue what to make of the small clothes that kept littering the Gryffindor common room, regardless of how many days had passed, but she knew that she would definitely not pick any of them up! So Boopsy went to one of the older house elves to seek guidance and it was ultimately decided that the Gryffindor Common Room would just not be cleaned by anyone except Dobby.
Hermione Granger had finally given up on her awful attempt at trying to free the House elves, and the years passed slowly by. Boopsy continued to serve at Hogwarts and even participated in the battle of Hogwarts with other elves. When asked why she had helped by the newly dubbed Headmistress McGonagall, Boopsy replied, “Boopsy serves the castle and the castle attacked. That command enough”. With that said before she ushered McGonagall out of the kitchen so that she could get to cleaning up the rubble with the other House elves.
Due to all the damage done to the castle there were many house elves which either died from collapsed walls or even from a few curses, Hogwarts was once again in need of more elves. There were some that were relocated from now dead families like the Lestrange, who had no heirs, to keep the elves from going insane. However there was still not that many, so McGonagall had allowed the remaining house elves to breed. Boopsy, wanting to do the best for the Castle, had found Lox—once an elf for the Lestrange Family— and the two quickly grew comfortable with each other and ended up having their daughter, Mipsy who serves the castle just like her parents do.
As the years dragged on, Boopsy continues to serve as a loyal house elf to the castle, talking to the various children who ‘snuck’ into the kitchens at night and doing all of her usual chores.
