Emily Greenstreet is a former student at Brakebills. She was a friend of Charlie Quinn, before he became a Niffin, and was the lover of Professor Mayakovsky.


Emily was once a promising student at Brakebills University. While attending, she fell in love with one of the staff, Professor Mayakovsky. They had an ongoing student-teacher affair until Mayakovsky abruptly ended it. Devastated, Emily believed that if she made herself more beautiful she could win back Mayakovsky's affection. Her attempt at such a complex and dangerous spell resulted in her disfigurement. Emily's friend and admirer, Charlie Quinn, attempted to reverse the damage she inflicted but could not handle the magic and was ultimately consumed by it, becoming a Niffin. After this tragic event Professor Mayakovski repaired Emily's face and she left Brakebills and the world of magic behind her, attempting to move on and salvage a normal life for herself, carrying a lot of guilt for what happened to Charlie.

Magic and AbilitiesEdit


Emily attended Brakebills university and learned the fundamentals of magic allowing her to perform several basic spells. However, due to her leaving before graduation and her inability to perform more advanced spell casting, like physical alteration, it is unlikely she will ever reach her full potential or gain the status of a master magician.


  • Gifted Intellect: Emily is able to grasp the full comprehension of magical theory as taught at Brakebills. As is the standard for all Magicians, Emily possesses at least an Above Average level of intelligence that enables her to utilize the concept of magic and apply it in the physical world.
  • Multilingual: Emily, as well as every other Magician, is able to speak and read in a multitude of languages, as it is a basic requirement for spell casting.
