Celesta is described as having an athletic build, standing at 5'8". She always wears jeans and T-shirts, generally having a tomboy sense of style throughout most of the series. She has nearly waist length dark brown hair, that is wavy. Her eyes are described as being shockingly blue, almost like two sapphires. Sheldon described her as being one of the most beautiful girls he had ever seen.


Celesta is said to be fun, outgoing, and never afraid to speak her mind. She also has a sarcastic sense of humor, something she has in common with most of her friends. She showed no fear in saving her friends when their lives were in danger, and she is a natural leader at heart, and headstrong and brave. She was at once a hopeless romantic, falling for Zachary when they met in 2012. However, she is shown to carry deep resentment towards anyone who harmed those she cares about, almost instantly, and isn't afraid to speak her mind, even when in deadly situations.


Celesta has all the powers of a witch and some of a hunter, which she is a quarter of. As a Hathaway, and reincarnation of Claire, she is a very powerful witch. Growing up under the tutelage of her father, she was very proficient in using magic, even before she tapped into her power, she held vast knowledge of spells. Also, from her maternal grandfather's side, she is a quarter hunter, though those abilities are very dormant. Despite that, she is a quick learner when it comes to weapons, and knows self defense.
