What happens when the three daughters of a prominent wizard who moved halfway across the world in the late 1800s suddenly vanish with the mother while the family is on a picnic near strange ancient rock formations that he is studying? Well, the man ends up accused of murdering them all and hung, case closed and only a few people who ever think any further about the strange happening. Witnesses who say they saw the women wandering, others who don't believe for a moment that he could have done something so horrendous. And then the reports of strange eerie noises in the area should someone wander the scrub alone.
The youngest of three daughters, Amaleia was doted on from the time she was born, by not only her parents but also her older sisters. Her father an educated man who had wanted to explore Australia and it's wonders, and her mother a mysterious woman who he had met not long after having moved, though there was nothing seemingly suspicious or worrisome about her. She claimed to have come from Britain as well, and was kind and gentle, adoring the outdoors, which made their union work wonderfully since she was always happy to explore new areas.
The daughters were raised quite similarly, travelling, spending a great deal of time outdoors, and with an affinity for nature, the elements, and animals. They were almost preternaturally beautiful like their mother as well, and Amaleia also seemed to share her mother's 'strangeness' which drew others to them. She was always 'off with the fairies' as her father would say, and it wasn't uncommon to catch the girl daydreaming about something as she stared off into the distance. The only things that she seemed to be able to maintain some focus on was painting and playing the piano, and her parents were more than happy to indulge those talents. Though, like her mother and sisters, she also enjoyed the outdoors, and could be even more of a wanderer than Keira. There had been a few times where Amaleia had simply gone wandering, and vanished, causing a panic and search until she was found napping under a tree or on a rock or something. It was as though she was protected by nature itself.
However, her flighty nature meant that her family were all the more protective of her, especially when it came to dealing with others. The girl was bullied a little through school for her habit of spacing out, but she didn't seem to let it phase her. If anything, she appeared to feel bad for those who felt they had to lash out at someone for being different. She also spoke about hearing voices talking to her when she wandered, though this came up less as a topic as she got older, and realised that it troubled her family to hear her talk about such things. At least aside from their mother, who never judged her strange daughter.
The day of the disappearance would forever remain a mystery though, it seemed. As even with the sudden appearance of the three out-of-place young women, they don't seem to be able to explain what happened, where they were, or whether their mother is still alive. But images from history match up to the faces, and the names, and their recollection of their lives to the point that their father's best friend from back then is doubtless in his belief that they are who they claim. He has taken them in and helped them to try and settle into life, while they try to catch up with the present as well as whatever it was that they aren't telling anyone.
