Time for a quick history lesson, as you need to understand the origins of this story before we dive into it; The year is sometime in the late 14th century, place: Korea. Or, as it's known at the time, Goryeo. Korea's been under the occupation of the disintegrating Mongol Empire for some years, and at war for much longer. The ruling dynasty of Goryeo is losing its credibility - the royal family keep intermarrying with the Mongol Yuan dynasty imperial family, and are genuinely poor rulers. If you were a citizen of Goryeo at this time wouldn't you agree it's time for a change?
Well, that's exactly what happened. General Yi Seong-Gye had gained power and respect during the late 1370s and early 1380s by generally just being a great military mind, and in the wake of the rise of the Ming Dynasty in what is now China the court of Goryeo splits into two factions, one of which was led by General Yi and one led by a rival general. To put things simply, General Yi supported the Ming Dynasty but was chosen to lead an attack against them - he said no thanks and turned on his King, carrying out a coup d'etat that ended in the deaths of the king and his son and with Yi in control of the throne, at first through a puppet king and then with his own coronation. And that, in 1392, marked the end of Goryeo and the rise of Joseon, ruled by the newly-christened Taejo. Highest ancestor.
Now fast forward a few centuries, to the late 1800s, when Emperor Gojong of Korea rules. Yi Deok-Mi is born, a daughter of Gojong and princess of Korea. With controversy surrounding her birth (rumours that she was born to a Japanese woman seemed a popular theory), Deok-Mi was hidden away from all eyes; muggle and magic alike. Although she was still styled as Princess Deok-Mi for a large portion of her childhood, as soon as she reached the age to attend Mahoutokoro, her name was promptly changed to Taejo Deok-Mi after her distant ancestor in order to avoid all connections between her and the imperial family. After choosing to live in seclusion in Seoul, Deok-Mi now serves as the link between the current Taejo Family and the royal house of Yi - enabling her descendants to have claims to royal titles.
Fast forward again to Deok-Mi's six-times great granddaughter, Taejo Ha-Neul. One of the main pretenders to the magical Korean throne, Ha-Neul grew up in Seoul in the same palace that her six-times great grandmother had lived in in seclusion, and eventually attended Mahoutokoro. It is here that she met the muggle-born wizard Hwang Yoon-Chul, who wooed her. Though against Ha-Neul's wishes, he was more than happy to take on the surname of Taejo - the two reached a compromise with having their children take on her surname instead of his, rather than he himself. Ha-Neul is too fond of tradition.
The first child born was a little girl they called Mi-Kyung and one year after that, they bore a second child who they called Hae-Won. Now set with two children of each gender, you'd think Ha-Neul would slow down and take time to be a mother. Instead, she joined the Korean Ministry for Magic with the endgoal hopefully being her seated on the metaphorical throne. Nearly two years after Hae-Won's birth, their mother discovered she was pregnant once again and proceeding nine months of pregnant torture led to the arrival of Ara Taejo.
Ara had a relatively normal upbringing in the country and her family home was luxurious due to her parents income. She was always a well mannered child and never really fought with her other siblings. Four years later and her last and final sibling was born and Ara welcomed her baby sister, Mi-Yeon into the world. As a young child, Ara seemed to be very transfixed on her younger sister and would even sing her soft lullubies to help her sleep. It was around the age of six that Ara discovered her passion for music and dance, her parents even going as far as to enroll her into singing lessons. Ara's talents as a singer flourished from a young age and those moments really brought the girl out of her shell.
By the age of eight, Ara finally showed her first signs of magic in a surprisingly powerful surge that split an old tree in two and revealed an unmarked grave. Her parents often feared at her profinity for magic but never hindered her from her early studies, choosing to nurture her strength in magic and music. During this time, her parents chose to enlist her in Kwikspell lessons alongside her sister Cordelia in hopes to tame some of her more impulsive nature. By age ten however, Ara was greedily seeking out new information and different types of magic. That was when she finally discovered a morbid interest in necromancy when visiting a wizarding bookstore. Beneath her family's nose, Ara begun to experiment and was nearly successful until her family chose to move to Great Britain. Forced to leave her attempt to reanimate the grave she had found, Ara figured she could pick back up once they settled into their new home and give it another try. For the sake of easy pronounciation, Ara changed her name to Aurora.
The first four years at Hogwarts were relatively uneventful for her but her interest in the darker arts led her to the forbidden section in the library. After swaying a professor into giving her permission, Aurora had free reign on countless textbooks on the history of necromancy. She specifically zoned in on inferi and how Voldemort had used them to guard one of the pieces of his soul. She has yet to sucessfully perform the magic required but that hasn't swayed her from her ultimate goal of making her own inferi.
