Alessandro Leone was born to a pure-blood wizard, Francesco Moretti, and a muggle, Alexia Leone. You could say that Alec, his preferred nickname, was a result of a one night stand between two fairly drunk individuals. Other wise, Alec's creation would have never even been an idea. You see, Francesco came from a family of pure-blood wizards and quite sadly, they were the type to look down upon half-blood and muggles. They deemed themselves better than anyone who had lesser magic in their blood and the idea of conceiving children with anything else besides another pure-blood wizard would be an abomination. In their eye’s and even his father’s, that’s what Alessandro was - an abomination. When Alexia found out about her pregnancy, she found a mean of contacting Francesco and he didn’t exactly react the way she wanted. While she didn’t expect a drunken one night stand to drop everything and raise a baby with her, she definitley didn’t expect him to pay her off and tell her to get an abortion. Alexia was disgusted at the idea and decided to take the money and disappear though, rather than get the abortion like Francesco wanted her to, she decided to carry the baby to term and raise it.
When Alek was born, he was raised lovingly by Alexia and they were pretty well off considering the amount of money the Moretti family had payed Alexia. It was their main source of income, in fact, Alexia still had her daily job but, the money was able to buy them a house and car and even a bit extra. Alek was happy with his mother and for the most part, had a pretty uneventful childhood. It was pretty basic. Learning to talk, walk, read, write, ride a bike. The life of a muggle family was like the most of the time. It wasn’t until Alek had turned 7 though that his world had turned dark and upside down.
It was actually the day of his birthday and the day had started off well. Alek’s mother brought him breakfast in bed, she let him cut school, and later on they’d head out and spend the day together. Alek never would have expect what was to come later on in the day though. As planned, the two got dress and made their way out into the city of new york. Before anything, the duo mad a stop at the post office so that Alexia could send something off and they’d be on there way. Alek was left sitting on one of the chairs as he waited for his mother when a strange looking man walked in. He didn't think much of the man until the stranger pulled out a guy and started yelling at the cashier. Everyone was terrified of course but, no one dared move. Everyone except for a scared little Alek who ran past the robber and to Alexia. Caught off guard and frantic, the man pointed his guy in the families direction and shot, thinking it might have been someone trying to be a hero. Alexia’s natural mother instincts kicked in and grabbed Alek and threw herself in front of the bullet, killing her.
Alek was splattered with the blood of his mother and left frozen as the man threatened to shoot anyone else who moved. Things were still for a moment and all Alek’s eye could focus on was the sense of his dead mother and her blood on his hands. After what seemed like forever, a hero in the room decided to raise up and catch the burglar off guard, wrestling with him and cause him to drop his gun. It dropped next to Alek’s feet and as a reflex, picked it up. Alek had no idea what was happening and before he knew it, he had shot the robber and killed him - dropping the gun just after and the police arriving.
From there, Alek was sent to live with his father - who had been forced to take him in by his own mother. Nothing would ever be the same again.
As the years went by, Alek slowly healed from the incident - acquiring a fear of blood and guns though. At the age of 9 he had his first magical experience, which made his father like him just a bit more. It wasn’t to special, al he did was stop a expensive object from shattering on the floor by making it levitate. At the age of 11 he was sent to hogwarts and sorted into hufflepuff where he went through all 7 years and graduated. After that he spent a lot of time bonding with his grandmother, who didn’t have the same views as the rest of the Moretti family, traveling. Now he’s back in england and plans to find a job so he doesn’t have to rely on his father forever.
