Bigby is a former professor that taught a course centered around Battle Magic at Brakebills from the 60s to the 90s, during which time she was in a relationship with Henry Fogg.


Due to the high mortality rate that occurred in the Battle Magic course, Bigby was asked to stop teaching it by the Brakebills High Council. Her knowledge turned out to be very useful in defeating The Beast.


"Professor Bigby was brilliant, impatient, stubborn, and mercurial. And a 500-year-old Pixie who more or less saw humans as children to be toyed with."
Henry Fogg[src]
