Tony grew up as the son of a third generation Auror. Life was pretty average for the Wolfe family; they were the standard family with 2.5 kids. Cameron was the standard auror father, he was never home, he was tough and he had little patience for weakness. Cassie and Tony spent their childhood competing with one another. Anything one could do the other could do better. Tony and Cassie were close though in spite of the fact they always wanted to be better than the other. They lived in a little house just outside of the city of Sacramento California where his mother did her best to make sure the house was clean and that he kids and husband had dinner. This lasted for a while, this painful normalcy; it wasn’t the sort of family you saw in the Saturday Evening Post but they were just normal they squabbled and insulted each other and they loved each other. However Cameron and Katharine had their fair share of issues. They fought constantly about how he was never home about how she was single mother although they were married.
This painful normalcy continued until Tony was eleven. It was then that not only did he get his letter to Western but his father was killed in a raid. Everyone told Tony his father was a hero, his mother would tell him that Cameron was an idiot. Not a whole lot changed, they were used to not having the father figure around the only thing that was really noticed was the change in mood that effected Katharine. She worked a series of odd jobs, they never really last very long Katharine was a bit of a battle axe and she often pissed people off and was asked to leave rather than fired, no one liked firing a hero’s widow. By the time he was ready to leave for school his mother was ready to get rid of him.
While at school he did very well in herbology, charms and defense against the dark arts. He managed to play quidditch rather well up until he fell and tore his ACL, due to the inexperience of the school healer he was left with a large scar on his knee. In the following years Tony managed to pick fights with almost everyone. He never got in trouble, once he mentioned that his father was a dead Auror they often released him and told him to watch his nose. Once he graduated he moved back to Sacremento and decided that he would follow the family tradition and join Ministry. It seemed like the only natural thing to do the Wolfe men had always been Auror and so he kept the tradition.
Just a few years after he went to school he met and fell in love with Lexi Forest. Lexi was working in a restaurant having gotten fed up with her life in California she moved to a city she thought no one would ever think to look for her. It was one late night that Tony entered the twenty four hour diner. It was not quite love at first sight but it was close. Tony fell in love with her dark hair her tan skin and her Latin charm. It took a few weeks before they were head over heels in love and crazy about each other. Once he graduated from Western they were married, she was a muggle but Tony didn’t care, he thought there was no one better in the entire magical world.
They had a life of blissful normalcy, he told her about magic after they got married, and she was shocked. It was hard for her to deal with the idea that her husband was not only magical but putting his life on the line to fight for a world she had not known existed. The normalcy was disrupted when he asked her to pick up the dry cleaning he had forgotten. They never really gave him a full explanation but a horrible accident cost Lexi her life. Tony was devastated and threw himself into his work, it was then he caught wind of a cult. They hadn’t been a major force in the US, but he consulted with England and now he is headed to Australia to consult with them. He was rather good tracking and dealing with cults.
It was during this that he was injured almost fatally and he felt like it was time for a change. Tony wished to be stable and not have to worry about who would take care of his Bella if something happened to him. His wide knowledge of various Magical Law systems and his experience had made him an excellent candidate. It also made him feel better knowing he would be in the same school his daughter was attending.
