• Background: Bambi's parents met at a pub in London on a rainy day. Her mother Alvina Ackerly, a 20 year old pureblood witch who was spending some time outside the wizarding world out of her interest for muggles, had taken shelter there from the rain. Bars were definitely not her type; Alvina was a more withdrawn sort of person and wasn't one to socialize with people she didn't know. However, her eye was caught by a woman at the bar; a tall Italian woman with tons of black curls, who was laughing loudly with a group of men and chugging beer. Again, definitely not her type, but for some reason Alvina was drawn to her and the way she completely lit up the room. After the woman (Teodora Pignatelli) caught the pale English-woman staring, she was immediately taken Alvina and left her group to go talk to her. And that was how their relationship began, which turned into two years of Teo courting Alvina and three months of dating before deciding to get married., and then settling down in London.
However Alvina didn't tell Teo about her background as a witch for a long time, fearing it would scare Teo off. After a year of being married though she couldn't hide it anymore, and broke down in tears confessing everything to Teo. Who then also began crying, because she thought it was the coolest thing ever and couldn't believe she was actually lucky enough to be married to this amazing woman.
After a few more years, the couple decided they wanted a child, and through a sperm donor (a friend of Alvina's who was also a pureblood wizard), Teodora became pregnant. It was difficult for Alvina to get her wife to take it easy (in retrospect they realized it probably would've been calmed if Alvina was the one to carry their child), but regardless after nine months they had a healthy baby girl. They were originally going to name her Rosetta, but the sudden death of Teo's mother prompted them to name their child after her. Though her name was Antonia, everyone called her Bambi, so that's what they named their daughter.
Bambi was a bit of an odd child right off the bat. She loved playing with the other kids, but she had a habit of forgetting what she was doing while it was happening, or getting distracted by insects or animals at the park. This worried Alvina a bit, so Teo got her a kitten to keep as a companion, one that wouldn't mind if Bambi wasn't the best at tag or hide-and-go seek. Bambi was very pleased with her cat friend (who she named Marzia), and attempted to bring her into her preschool every time they had show and tell.
It was the start of grade school when her parents' influences starting become apparent in the girl. Teo had been a football player for an female Italian team (she left that job after marrying Alvina to coach football at a highschool in London), and while Bambi did have trouble focusing at most things, football just clicked with her. However she had also gained her mother's patient nature, and her interest for new things (though Bambi took a very long time studying new things before moving on). Both mothers were hopeful that their daughter would develop magical abilities, which is partially why they asked their wizard friend to be the sperm donor. And lo and behold, their hopes were resolved after they got news that Bambi's first grade classroom got finger paint everywhere after "the paints seemed to just throw themselves around". However the little girl felt incredibly guilty about, not realizing what was happening. Once her parents explained about her mommy being a witch and how she would get to be a witch, Bambi was extremely interested and also extremely nervous. Alvina did her best to quell her daughter's fears, and for the next few years taught Bambi about the wizarding world and her own power. Bambi also made friends with the other girls on her football team, and though she was bullied a bit for her spaciness and slowness, her teammates always stood up for her.
Teo cried when Bambi got her Hogwarts letter, thrilled but also saddened that her little football player was going to be gone often for the years to come. Alvina also had a mix of emotions, but was excited that her daughter would be following in her footsteps as a witch. They helped prepare her for her journey and experience at Hogwarts, trying to make sure she'd be comfortable with the transition, but was mostly disappointed that she wouldn't get to play football with her team anymore. After a goodbye party with her parents and teammates (who thought she was just going away to boarding school), Bambi left for Hogwarts, her cat Marzia accompanying her.
The curly haired girl enjoyed her first few years at Hogwarts quite a bit. Being the spacey girl she was, many of the more sinister events occurring at school went over her head. She had fun learning more about magic and making new friends. Even bullies couldn't get her down...mostly because she never realized she was being bullied. Bambi also took quite an interest in Quidditch, and went to every game at Hogwarts, and also made her mothers take her to any pro-Quidditch game they could see. (Bambi cried out of excitement when she got to go to the Quidditch World Cup) She's adamant about making the Hufflepuff team, however she has never tried out, since her flying abilities were..lacing. Bambi's worked very hard to improve and hopefully make the team this year! She has a feeling her fourth year of Hogwarts will be special.
