–Celia, The Iron Trial
Celia is a legacy mage, whose great-aunt died in the Cold Massacre when she was just a baby, so she was already aware of magic by the time she turned twelve, during which she was due for the Iron Trial for evaluation for admission to the Magisterium. After the Trials, Celia was picked by Master Milagros, and Celia became part of the same apprentice group as Jasper deWinter, Gwenda Mason, and Nigel.
Celia became good friends with her fellow Iron Years, and is even on good terms with the normally snippy Jasper, whom she helps train. While Celia seemed naturally nice to everyone, she quickly developed a very obvious crush on Callum Hunt. One of the first things she learned under the Masters' tutelage was how to summon animals from underground.
Celia ran to greet Call and Havoc on their first day back at the Magisterium for their Copper Year. One evening, she saw Call on his way to the school grounds to walk Havoc and volunteered to accompany him. Celia joined their walks most nights after that. On another separate night, their discussion went to family, about how Call's father, Alastair—whom Celia remembers freaked out and made a scene during their Iron Trial—reacted to Havoc, to Call's dagger, his mother, then to the death of her great-aunt in the Cold Massacre. Celia told him that if given the chance, she would avenge her death and kill the Enemy herself, not knowing that Call was, in a way, the Enemy.
When Call returned with the others and news spread that they killed Constantine, Celia was so happy that she kissed Call in the Refectory, in front of everybody. Embarrassed, Celia immediately ran off afterwards.
Celia attended the ceremony held shortly before the new school year in honor of Call and the others. Call was given a note with her name, implied to be forged by the Enemy's spy, Alex Strike. This lead to him almost being killed by a collapsing chandelier.
During the course of the year, Celia was suspected of being a spy by Aaron Stewart. In an attempt to find the truth, Call announced that he'll be in the Library alone that night. She met him there, thinking this was a romantic advance. While Call did like her back, he was too flustered to properly reply and Jasper, Tamara and Aaron, who had been watching the exchange secretly, intervened. Celia questioned why everyone was there and yelling and Jasper quickly claimed that he had interrupted to ask her on a date. She accepted, after looking to Call for one final chance.
She and Jasper then became a couple, with Jasper in particular being very enamoured with her and their relationship.
Celia was only mentioned by Jasper when he went to visit Call in the Panopticon. He said that she had broken up with him when he made the decision to come see Call. This was because she viewed Call as being the Enemy of Death, whom she hated for killing her aunt and countless others.
Celia's dislike of Call did not stop when he redeemed himself in the battle against Alex, although she made up with Jasper. She was repeatedly confrontational towards him and tried to make Jasper choose between her and Call.
Despite this, she did come to see Call while he was in the Infirmary, recovering Maugris' memories. Celia admits that she treated Call poorly, but that she now realizes that he is a better person than Constantine. Call, still delirious from the memories, stops recognizing her partway through, warns her that there are elementals under the waves, and falls unconscious again.
Throughout the year, Celia and Jasper continue to have relationship problems. This culminates with them breaking up for good and Jasper admitting that they're not going to make things work, as he had previously hoped.
Celia can be quite talkative, with a tendency to casually spread gossip among others.
She has thick and curly dirty blond hair, and is usually seen wearing a hair clip. She often wears brightly colored clothing from home when not in school uniform.
