She's as close to royalty as we peculiars have. They tried for fifty years to elect her leader of the Council of Ymbrynes, but she would never give up teaching at the academy she and Miss Bunting founded. Today there's not an ymbryne worth her wings who didn't pass under Miss Avocet's tutelage at one time, myself included!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Avocet is a female peculiar with the peculiarity of being an ymbryne. She and Miss Bunting had a loop together in Derbyshire on Saint Swithin's Day of 1867. Her loop was not just a typical haven for peculiars, but an academy for ymbrynes the youngest student she ever took on was Alma LeFay Peregrine .

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenEdit

When wights and hollowgasts raided her loop, she fled to Miss Peregrine's loop in an agitated state. Her colleague was said to have been abducted by the hollows and wights. She survives in the book.

Physical and mental descriptionEdit

She is described to be elderly,frail and serious in the film she is portrayed by Dame Judi Dench

Peculiarity Edit

She is an ymbryne, which gives her the power to manipulate time and turn into a bird, specifically an avocet.


Miss PeregrineEdit

Miss Peregrine was one of Miss Avocet's students. Their relationship is said to be very close as all Ymbrynes are overly protective and maternal and will do anything at all costs to protect those in their care. Miss Avocet traveled to Miss Peregrine's loop to warn her about the wights and hollowgasts when loops was raided after her wards were killed.
