I just cash in on the fact that I’m good looking, and I’ve got a nice figure and girls like me.

Bodhi Wildsmith was born in 2020, to Justice des Lauriers and Nym Wildsmith. He was brought up in a No-Maj neighborhood. His parents both had No-Maj jobs and rarely used magic inside or outside of the home. Regardless of the life they had chosen to live and the plans they made for the future they were unprepared for a child. An understatement considering the circumstances at the time of his birth. The coronavirus disease situation left Justice, and less so, Nym, paranoid about what went on outside of their home. Justice treated every sneeze, cough and sniffle as if it were deadly. Nym grew annoyed with her behavior over a short period of time. Their relationship was doomed from the moment she refused to continue social distancing.
He was a prisoner in his own home, held captive by his own loving mother. She'd been afraid of what the updates from the news stations and social media told her was right outside the door. The paranoid-schizoid issues and anxiety attacks that debilitated her in the past were triggered on a regular basis. Whenever Bodhi found his way out of the house with any opportunity that presented itself she always lost her mind. Without fail, she became a rage fueled, wide-eyed, crazed woman. Nothing mattered if she didn't have her son to protect. She always knew where to find him, Guardian of the Gulch.
As county wide restrictions were slowly lifted, and they were no longer forced to quarantine together Justice forced Nym out of the house. They were physically separated from one another although they were not a legally divorced couple. Apart Justice seemed to retreat even farther into her fears. Nym began dating and moving on with her life while Justice put even more of her focus onto keeping her son safe. She ended up being placed in an in home mental rehabilitation of sorts. Nym had her wife declared incompetent and paid for doctors, nurses and caregivers. She hired a live-in au pair for Bodhi while she filed for full custody. When the paperwork was completed Bodhi and his mother moved to the UK.
In 2030 having settled nicel into their version of the London-lifestyle Bodhi and his mother Nym were out at a fancy restaurant. In tow was Brandy, yet another woman Nym was dating. Sick and tired of these meetings and forced dinners Bodhi snapped. Everything seemed to go wrong at this one dinner. His menu caught on fire and burned the table cloths and his napkin. He'd managed to knock over his cup of water which caused his waitress to jump back, drop and break his plate of chicken and pasta. Luckily he ended up getting a mini dessert for dinner and a slice of tiramisu to go. He didn't understand how the fire jumped from the candles, to his menu, to the table, to his napkin whenever Brandy talked.
Before he started at Hogwarts Bodhi's mother gave him a pet snake. His named that snake Scout and he never went anywhere without him.
