The three became inseparable at Hogwarts and would later go on to dominate the castle, changing rules and century old traditions.

During the sorting ceremony, Ashlyn was sorted into Slytherin like the rest of her family, but still maintained her relationship and friendship with James and Phoebe after they had been sorted into Gryffindor. Their friendship was tested many times during their school years, but the three remained true to each other, and their two other friends, Amelia Winchester and Sarah-May Prentiss.

For many years, Ashlyn had a long-time relationship with Adrian Pucey, who she had been raised alongside as brother and sister. Their sibling relationship lasted until Ashlyn's fourth year at Hogwarts when the two realised that their feelings for one another and shifted from platonic to relationship to a more romantic one.

Once Voldemort had been confirmed as returned, Ashlyn run to Adrian for help against him. Adrian immediately protected Ashlyn by packing away a few of her belongings and sending her to his best friend, Terence Higgs, knowing that Terence would get Ashlyn to Phoebe Blackheart where she would be safe.

Despite her own safety being handled, Ashlyn realised her feelings for Adrian when he remained behind and endured endless torture on her behalf.
