Lysandra was the 8th, and youngest child of Isrian Yaxley, the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement in 1887. Lysandra mentioned that growing up in a 10 person family of all succesful wizards made her grow up in a house full of pressure and jealousy.

During this time she grew extremely close to her sister Calandrina, who was closest to her in age, being three years apart. Lysandra's sister Zenobia was Prefect and Head Girl during her time at Hogwarts.
Her sister Calandrina introduced her to her later husband and Calandrina's classmate Arcturus Black.
Lysandra had light eyes, dark hair and was considered very beautiful.
Lysandra was a caring and loveable woman who gave a great deal about appearence and could be arrogant at times.
- After being disowned by the family, Cedrella Black was still seen and loved by her parents and sisters. Something very unusual in the Black Family.
