Tayla's parents met in England outside The Leaky Cauldron when Nicole was on her way to Diagon Alley. (Of course, Matthew couldn't see The Leaky Cauldron.) Matthew, a foreigner to the country, asked Nicole for directions. They liked each other and soon started dating. Nicole confessed about being a witch after they were engaged but before they got married. Although Matthew freaked out for a while, he mostly found it fascinating, but they both agreed to raise the children in the Muggle world, back in Canada where Matthew grew up.'
Tayla and April knew about the wizarding world and that their mother was a witch because Nicole would read them stories from 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard'. And when they visited their mother's parents, Grandpa Alaric (a.k.a. Ric) would talk about Quidditch. He taught Tayla how to fly before he passed away.'
The locket made of white gold that Tayla wears on her neck was given to her by Granda Margherita (a.k.a. Guita). She still does not know what's in it, but hopes to find out soon. The locket is definitely magical and Tayla never removes it from her neck.'
