Allura Valentina Mendoza was born in Alicante, Spain on July 15 to Rosa Mendoza and Roberto Valdez. Roberto had left Allura's birth mother as soon as he found out she was pregnant, and Rosa didn't stick around for too long either. You see, the couple had not wanted kids, but then they slipped up. That slip up was Allura. They had no money, no room, and no desire for the little baby so it was no surprise that Roberto took off as fast as he could. Rosa had tried to do the whole mother thing after he left, but with no funds and no place to go, she couldn't support herself (let alone her baby girl).
Rosa took Allura to England in hope for better opportunities, but to no avail. Allura was three when her mother gave up. Rosa left her daughter on a doorstep and fled. The owners of the home that Allura had been left at found the young girl and decided to find her a home. Unfortunately, the home they found had no parents - no, they took her to the nearest orphanage where she would never find a family. At age 7, she was still living in the orphanage and it seemed like there was no hope for her. The other kids would tease her for being weird or odd - she couldn't help that she was different. She couldn't help that she was a witch.
One day when one of the other kids at the orphanage had stolen Allura's doll, she had retaliated by sending a book flying right at his face. The crazy thing was - she never touched the book. She didn't know what she was, but she knew it made her even more of an outcast. After a couple more incidences like those, the care-givers sent her to a different orphanage. From that point on, she hopped from one home for abandoned kids to another. She hated it. And so at age nine, she ran away for the first time. No matter how many times she ran away, they always seemed to find her and throw her back in that hell hole. Life was miserable for her. That was until she stumbled upon a seemingly abandoned treehouse.
There, she found an odd guy named Newt Pendery. She wanted to run again (like she always does), but he made her stay until she had told him who she was and her life story. It was there, she found a lot of things. She found a friend, she found out who she was, and she found a home. Allura ended up staying in the tree house with Newt where he taught her all about the wizarding world and took care of her until she turned eleven. He made her go to wizarding school at that point, where he assured her that she'd find happiness. Allura didn't want to leave her Peter Pan, but it was time to grow up.
At Hogwarts, Allura is about to enter into her fifth year. She's still looking for that happiness Newt promised her, but maybe this is the year she finds it. When she wasn't in school, she spent all her time with Newt who taught her all about Disney stories and tales and also how to play quidditch. She enjoys being a part of Neverland and she hopes never to leave it. Let's just hope her fairy tale doesn't come crashing down the same way it did for her predecessors.
