Blackburn for the Win!!
Cadence Lenore Blackburn is a mesmerist and a member of Unit 919 who ended up finishing the Show Trial in second or third place. Cadence and Morrigan Crow met at least once during each of the entrance trials. While they initially dislike each other, they became best friends by the end of their first year at the Wundrous Society. She uses her mesmerist abilities to an extent; only slightly bending her mesmerism when needed or when Morrigan needs to get away with something in a crafty way; this of which being used in good or bads ways and most likely ends in a horrible predicament.
In my opinion, she's quite posh on the facial complexions with the tanish-brown skin, occasional smirk and witty comebacks; along with these,…

- hit oneself
- jump off a building
The Art has not been mentioned by anyone in Sub-Nine Academic Group, nor seen in any of the Ghostly Hours
Some of the scenes might have been manufactured by Mathilde Lachance using Puppeteering. It hasn't been explained how she came across all these scenes, maybe she used a fortune teller or a Fortune Telling Wunderous Art.
