➲ the backstory

Place of Birth: Lovech, Bulgaria
Current Residence: Leeds, England
Blood Status: Halfblood
Heritage: Italian – Bulgarian – French
Language: English – Bulgarian

Mother: Carlita Gioia Romanos
Father: Asen Borislav Romanos
Brother: Grigor Lorenzo Romanos

Born in Lovech, Bulgaria in early November of 2044, Medea became the second child of Carlita and Asen Romanos and the younger sister of Grigor, whom she looks up to and respects how he is able to handle their parents. She grew up in the restaurant business, their family having owned a restaurant called "Romanos and Sons" for many years. Naturally, Medea didn't quite fit in well with the title, something in which made her suspicious was why her father favored Grigor more than her. Since she was six, she'd been lending a helping hand as often as she could; not like she had a choice anyhow. Her father especially leaned towards the idea of business of education and believed all the education they needed was either working with their customers or cooking the food in the back kitchen.

At the age of twelve, Carlita finally reasoned with her father and she was sent to a nearby and rather low in cost school, the Ukrainian Academy of Magic. It was a small school, and not one that would be most people's first choice. Her brother encouraged her to take more advanced classes during her final three years, not to mention making sure she continued to be motivated in her studies. Her love of art grew during her years of schooling, as well as her enthusiasm for yoga and charms work.

A month after graduating, Grigor enrolled her into the Ukrainian University of Magic and Magical Theory with the use of his own money, much to father's disapproval. The relationship between the family members became tense, yet between classes at school and studying for exams and personal interests, Medea continued working for the family business; if only to receive money to pay for her studies so her brother didn't have to. She finally quit the family business and moved away at the age of twenty-two, a year after leaving the University. Studying in a classroom environment just wasn't working for her either.

It seemed this was her open door to new opportunities since she ran into an ex-Professor. Ambrus Váradi was the Defensive Magic/Theory Professor at the Ukrainian Academy of Magic during Medea's first two years there, having retired after forty-four years of teaching to become a quiet tutor for the young ones that needed a little extra help. After catching up, it was agreed that Ambrus would help Medea with her independent studies, having realized that retirement was in fact boring after all. It was only a few years later did Medea start helping him with tutoring. She continued tutoring for a year or so after Ambrus was murdered in a particularly violent house burglary, and it was only after she had stepped down from the job was she contacted about a house that was left to her in the ex-Professor's will. A summer home in Leeds, England.

Not at all about to take it, she did happen to make a visit to place, if only to make sure that it would be well taken care of. However, the longer she stayed in Leeds, the harder it was to leave. Eventually, she took up the position as Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor at the ever famous school of Hogwarts. She doesn't much communicate with her family anymore, but she does send the occasional owl for the holidays and does keep in contact with her brother every now and then.
