In the grand scheme of things Violet was not supposed to existed. At least not according to laws. Violet is the daughter of a black mother and white father, a union that was illegal in their home. Her father was a native Australian from Melbourne who moved to South Africa for business, however while he was there he met a rather impressive woman who was ahead of the times in South Africa. It was when they realized they would never be a family who was able to walk down the street. They made the choice to move after Violet was born to move back to his hometown of Melbourne. It took some planning and a considerable amount of managing but before Violet was 2 they had settled into a suburb as a happy family.
In the managing of their ability to be a family her mother neglected to tell her father that she was a witch- so when it came to the conversation her father nearly bolted. They had plenty to work out but they were managing it. They were an interracial and intermagical couple and so by anyone’s account they should have failed. However, they managed to make it work. It was not always easy and the small family was often under a lot of stress most of the time. It took her father a while to adjust to the idea that he had married someone who was ‘magical’ after thinking that the only thing they had to get over was apartheid.
Violet was a rather active and rambunctious child, she spent a lot of her time exploring as a kid and she found that she enjoyed the time alone to explore. Violet was always a bit of a troublemaker, she was loud when she thought she had the audience or she knew she could get one. That was when she discovered how much she loved flying and quidditch. She was a a very successful beater. She later went to play Pro but found herself in the middle of a nasty injury. It ended her career after they were unable to set it all just right and to this day her wrist still clicks.
Violet then went through a fairly deep depression before she discovered that she was an excellent coach. She took a position coaching at Penrose, she found that she was much happier teaching young women how to kick ass and take names on the pitch than she was with any other position. Violet absolutely adores her job.
