Selena Wynn (b. 7 May, 1960.), also known as Winnie, was a pure-blood witch,
“Oh, come on, she’s like
the female version of Sirius Black.”
- - Lily Evans to Alice Morgan about Selena
Born to Ellen and Arthur Corwin, Selena showed extraordinary talent in Transfiguration and healing from early years of her life. Unlike rest of her friends, Selena met Annabelle during their joint visit to druids in Blackwood forest where two of them were learning early potions, creature recognition and care and healing. Just like Alane’s, Selena’s Boggart is a serket. She and Annabelle had an unfortunate encounter with it in Blackwood forest and whilst Annabelle save her life, creating a strong bond of trust and friendship in return, serket remains to be Selena’s primary fear.
On the Hogwarts Express in first year, she met Ava Wescot t, Alice Morgan and Lily Evans and since she shared a dormitory with them and Annabelle, they quickly formed a small group. She also met Sirius Black, James Potter, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew with the latter becoming a source of deepest hatred when James and Lily were killed, as she was among rare few that believed Annabelle’s claim that it was Pettigrew who was the secret keeper and not Sirius. She did not meet her future husband in person until the fifth year at Hogwarts, even though Anthony was also a Gryffindor. Selena was equally talented in Charms and Transfiguration and the only subject that did not sit with her at all was History of Magic but then again, most students complained about it. Due the fact that Annabelle was known to maraud around the school with the Marauders, Selena often found herself helping them with the latest prank, something Lily never really approved of but did nothing to stop them either. As far as her character is concerned, Selena was known to be flirtatious and changed her boyfriends like socks, earning herself a title of being female version of Sirius Black. That changed with her meeting Anthony Corwin, fellow Gryffindor of almost equal reputation as far as dating habits were concerned. Shortly after graduation, she moved with Anthony to Nebraska in North America to work as Transfiguration teacher at Salem Institute of Magic although she was active member of the Order of the Phoenix and remained loyal to it even after Lily and James were killed.
