Xavier Jebediah was a wealthy playboy, bunking off his parents money so he could travel around the world in search for woman and culture. He got what he wanted for the first six months, going from hotel to hotel and spending the night in either clubs or bars before taking a woman home for a one night stand, he rarely saw the same woman again after that night, but he wasn't complaining. This was all good and well until he went to Greece, he had been there twice before and both times he loved it enough to go back for more but this time he was getting stressed as his parents decided to cut his budget enough that Xavier had to go home and start working to become the next CEO of the family's successful business. He didn't like it, in fact, he hated the prospect of becoming a businessman as his true love was in the arts, he was an artist. He once made his own small business as a teenager to paint people's portraits but he spent the money he gained on all the paint he needed so it quickly ran dry. In an effort to put his mind off his future he went to a bar as he usually does, but instead of hunting for a one night stand he just sits on the bar stool sipping a gin and tonic. He wasn't expecting it to be a social night but a woman slipped into the seat next to him, not bothering to even look at him she ordered a drink. After a few more glasses he got enough courage to speak to the woman, as everything about her slightly frightened him.
After a conversation with her, he found out her name was Lucy Alexandra and she had traveled from America to visit her family in Greece as her parents had immigrated to America about three years before she was born. Eventually, he asked if she wanted to go somewhere else as the bar was getting crowded, she agreed but reluctantly, and the night soon turned into weeks. He soon fell in love with Lucy despite not truly knowing her, just the bare facts. After three weeks Lucy disappeared without a word or a note. He was heartbroken and tried to get a hold of her but didn't even know where her family lived but after searching the internet he quickly found out that no Lucy Alexandra existed, at this he was mad, mad because he fell in love with a lie, he hated both 'Lucy' and himself for the whole situation. But after the incident, he accepted his future and went back to America to start preparing to take over the business.
Nine months later, a knock banged against the door and Isa's grandfather opened the door. After arguing, both Xavier and his parents decided to keep her, but all three were unaware of her abilities. Growing up, she loved to fly and constantly begged for being taken by helicopter to school or even the corner story much to her families chagrin. Raised spoilt and loved, she was adored by both her father and her grandparents.
For the first fourteen years, her powers were nearly missed if it wasn't for her realisation that whenever she was angry, the wind would start to pick up and windows would sometimes smash. Being scared of these abilities, she constantly tried to shield them from the others and so, she began to pull away from her friends and family. Basing it on hormones, no one bothered to intervene and left her to her own abilities.
When she was fifteen, she was arguing with her father over the new step mother he had recently married (this was nearly the fifth one) and in anger, she accidentally allowed a wind to blow over a shelf of candles and due to nearly all of the mansion being wood it quickly took into flames.
Realising what was happening, Xavier pushed her out of the window but was unable to save himself and her grandparents. Not having any living relatives, she was placed into foster care but became bratty and rebellious and was often moved house to house. She considered it safer that way.
When she turned seventeen, an elemental found her and realised who she was and told her the truth and enrolled her in the academy.
