Ingrid Beauchamp is charming, prim and shy librarian. She's Freya's older sister. Ingrid knows she is smart, but she is unaware she is beautiful as well. Despite being a cautious over-thinker, Ingrid is always willing to go out of her way to assist her family and friends. She fears that her sister is rushing into marriage without thinking it through, while Freya believes Ingrid spends too much time analyzing everything, leaving no time to cultivate a romance of her own.
Ingrid did a dissertation on witchcraft and historical occult practices in post-colonial New York towns, but she never believed in magic before finding out she was a witch. Ingrid has lived many past lives, and in each one she dies young, only to be reborn again. She has the powers of healing, telekinesis and limited weather control, and has the ability to write new spells.
At the beginning of season one, when Joanna gets arrested for murder she tells Ingrid that she and her sister are witches. Ingrid finds the family's grimoire to look for a spell to save Freya who is trapped inside a painting, and a resurrection spell to revive Wendy who was killed by the evil shape shifter Penelope Gardiner. However, when she comes back to life, Wendy tells Ingrid that the spell comes with a price — "If you resurrect someone you love, someone you love has to die". She dates detective Adam Noble but their relationship ends when Adam dies as a result of Ingrid's resurrection spell. Ingrid later meets a novel writer named Mike, who believes that witches exist in East End and that they came from the magical world of Asgard. In the season one finale, Mike holds Ingrid at gunpoint to make her open the portal to Asgard, but the light within kills him instantly.
In season two, Ingrid starts working as a curator for documentary preservation of witchcraft. She finds herself blacking out repeatedly and unable to remember that she has been visiting a creature known as the Mandragora. Meanwhile, Ingrid confesses to Dash that she is a witch and he is a warlock after witnessing him kill a man and chooses to assist him hide the secret.
In an interview with TV Wise, Rachel Boston revealed that before filming the pilot episode, she read many books on witchcraft to prepare for the role of Ingrid. Boston described Ingrid as smart and sensitive, and said that she "is ruled by her mind, intellect, and invention". When Boston was asked if there were any similarities between her and Ingrid, she said that there was because she relate to being out of her "comfort zone and in an unfamiliar land figuring it out step by step".
