Morgan Katie Evans was born in Coles Bay, Tasmania to Janet and Rowan Evans. She comes from a relatively large family (six kids in total). So she has never really known what it’s like to be alone, especially since she’s a twin. Mika’s home is never quiet and she can’t say that she wouldn’t miss it, but she really likes her own space. The family is pureblood and originally from Wales. Despite their blood status, the family have no problems interacting with muggle-borns and Muggles alike, in fact, she’s probably more comfortable with them than anyone.
Mika’s family runs a farm and boat tour business which the older children help with, which she loves because she loves being outdoors, especially in the spring and early summer when everything is growing again. All in all a pretty normal childhood. Mika was homeschooled until she was old enough to start secondary school. During this time she discovered a love for learning and her parents encouraged it because they didn’t see it as a bad thing or harmful in any way. Although sometimes they regretted that because of the amount of trouble that Mika, Parker (twin brother), and Mason (older brother) and how they encourage their younger siblings. But nothing ever got too out of hand, and they learnt not to mix weird potions ingredients that could turn you a nice shade of violet.
It wasn’t a complete surprise when Mika received her letter inviting her to attend Tallygarunga. She has been there ever since and has been enjoying every minute of it. Though she feels homesick sometimes, that’s why she started carrying a video camera and started making videos because it gives her something to do and is a comfort to her.
