It all started in the year 2003 when she was born. Savannah, formerly known as Ava, was born by her mom. It had been a result of a one night stand despite the fact that protection had been used. Ava's mom believes that Ava is a special gift to her and had treated her with much respect and smothered her to death.
Now moving onto the year 2005 -- Ava's mom was seeing another fellow man. Ava doesn't really have anything against the man, but she hadn't been fond of him either. The two seem to have gotten on just to make Ava's mom happy. The man has stated that he'd rather not have Savannah in the picture, but her mom was oblivious to this.
As far as 2008-2012 went -- There had been a break-up, described as being a nasty one that ended Ava's mom relationship with this man. The gist of the break had seemed to be about sending Savannah away to boarding school, getting married, and having more children. After that, Savannah and her mom moved away to Flinder's Island in January where her mom works as a farmhand during the days that Ava had attended school. Both her and mom live in a small house in Whitemark, and Savannah has friends over for play dates most days. She does enjoy visitng other farms in the area her mom works at, or even where her friends live at. She's often seen around farm animals and sometimes even gets to ride the horses and ponies. When it's summer time they go to the beach and this was when Savannah had a terrible experience in almost drowning. As a result of that, she has a very real (and a deep secret) fear of water and swam a lot less. She still enjoyed playing in the shallow water and on the beach though.
2014 was a decent year! She got her acceptance letter which had been a shock, but does explain a lot about the odd things she has been known to be doing. Accidental magic was around sometimes, and it wasn't really like her mom had money for a more..prestigious school that is private. Ava accepted the invite to Tallygarunga. Both her and mom fly up to the mainland to buy school things she needed, and her mom comtemplates moving closer near the school.
2015 -- Ava had a shocked look on her face seeing mom pick her up from the school gates, and takes her to their brand new home located in Narragyambie. It's just a small enough house to hold the two of them, but Savannah is happy because she gets to spend much more time with mom as she considers her her best friend. They get even closer throughout the year.
