When the planeswalker Dack Fayden arrived on Innistrad, his first act was to save Ingrid and some peasants from Baron Eckhart Von Falkenrath and his group of vampires. Ingrid quickly returned the favor by saving Dack from the Baron. She took Dack home to meet her father Hermann, who disapproved of her actions. Both her father and Dack forbade her to follow Dack on his quest to find the Baron and Sifa Grent, but she disobeyed them both.
When she found Dack, he was tracking the Baron by use of his magic. Ingrid was impressed and led him to the Baron's castle. There the two fought a group of vampires and Dack used his magic to capture the Baron. Dack was about to kill Baron, when he had to ride off to save the townsfolk from Sifa Grent. He left the Baron's fate in Ingrid's hands.
It is unclear what Ingrid did to the Baron, but she later got a bunch of cathars together to save Dack and the town from Sifa Grent. When Sifa escaped, Ingrid demanded to go with Dack but but he planeswalked and this time she was unable to follow him.
