History @King.Gabe • Nov 8
Nicholas Malfoy had always fit the Malfoy family image perfectly, believing to outshine the members who did not. A cunning and ambitious man who - of course - was apart of the Slytherin house. He was not one to be ashamed of his magical ability, and was actually quite proud of his skill. Though, his intelligence shouldn't be forgotten. Overall, Nicholas stood well to his family's name, and planned to stay that way when he began to date the wealthy pure-blood witch, Ophelia MacMillan.
The two had a decently healthy relationship and overtime, Nicholas even set a date on when he would propose. Though, a problem would arise when Ophelia revealed she was pregnant - with his baby, of course - a month before Nicholas planned to propose. So, to avoid any family scandals, they didn't get engaged a month later. They got married. They did love each other, so a quick marriage didn't affect the relationship in a bad way. Though, the birth of Sebastian some months later was not when they imagined they would have kids. So, there was a decent age gap before the next one was born.
Out of all his children, it was clear that Nicholas favored Sebastian. The oldest son that was practically a spitting image of his father, inside and out. So, it always seemed that the eldest' achievements were celebrated much more than some of the kid's. (Even when Nicholas's daughter, Theodora, married into the royal family... Although, after that, the two didn't keep much ties with each other.) Though, even with favoritism, Nicholas and Ophelia made it their duty to try and teach their children one thing. The belief in blood supremacy and to never marry below a half-blood. Whether or not they would like to be an embarrassment to family name, that was up to them.
With being put in the spotlight all the time, Sebastian made sure to make his family look just as good as when Nicholas had done it. He did well in school, his father's magical skill and intelligence being passed down. And, of course he was a Slytherin. Some may even say Sebastian made a bigger impact on Hogwarts than Nicholas, being that he was a prefect for his sixth year. (Ha, beat that dad.)
Also like Nicholas, Sebastian would marry a wealthy pure-blood witch, Elizabeth Yaxley. The relationship had moved more slow and steady than his parents, the two beginning to date in seventh year but marrying at twenty-five. It wasn't long after that that more that before children were born, leaving for them to help keep the Malfoy legacy the way it is. If not? They would be as much of an embarrassment as any aunt or uncle who had done the same.They then started having children and soon came the twins. Gabriel and Alexandria.
Gabriel was not originally Gabriel.
He was born an Adelaide.
He had his identical sister, Alexandria, were both named after cities, those hers was a greater city than his. Not that he ever cared. He hated the name Adelaide though it took him a while to realise why. Sebastian, from the moment they were born, had organised their future, having them be engaged to other pure-bloods. Adelaide's marriage was broken, though, when she was thirteen as the family didn't want anything to do with Adelaide due to...well, reasons.
Growing up, like one would expect from twins, Adelaide and Alexandria were close, inseparable, even. You couldn't see one without the other and, without a doubt, they always gave off twins from 'The Shining' vibes with their identical fashion. Though the two would eventually become the middle children, there was always some sort of bias that their parents took with them. Perhaps it was the promising marriages they were set up for or, more unlikely than not, Sebastian and Elizabeth took a liking to them.
Really, their childhood can best be characterised just like one would expect of a leading Malfoy child. Home taught education rooted deep in blood supremacist values, near enough anything they wanted being given to them on a silver platter and, most notably, the stuck up attitude being taught to them consistently. Alexandria and Adelaide were always a little different though, subtly enough not to be initially detected, but enough to feel detached from what they were learning. When Adelaide was seven, though, she confided to Alexandria that she felt more like a 'he'. Eventually, the two worked together to figure out what exactly was Adelaide feeling.
Adelaide's first magical incident occurred when she was eight. It was a happy incident and had made a scatter of flowers grow prematurely in the family garden. Nothing as dramatic as her twins, though. For Adelaide, though, Alexandria began as a blessing. It was Alexandria who probed for their reactions, gauging them out. Adelaide was never a good liar and would be spied out in a moment. Their reaction always...saddened him. Even now. However, when Adelaide was nine, she was caught. Her mother had overheard the twins' talking with Alexandria calling Adelaide a him. Calling him Gabriel.
Things changed then. Gabriel suddenly...felt isolated. Alexandria, a blessing at first, had turned to give him snide remarks in the public sphere, constantly sucking up to their parents. Even though she constantly told him otherwise when they weren't around, Gabriel was never sure. Nor did it ever ease the hurt that he did feel whenever his twin sister, his partner in crime, put him down to the very people stopping him from being happy. But he copped it. Shut his mouth, said it was fine. And it was. At least he still had his Alexandria in private.
At eleven, she was sent to Hogwarts, promising her parents she'll keep her mouth shut about her 'condition'. This worked for the first two years. Then Gabriel became a stubborn and petty teenager. The parents refused to let Adelaide transition, refused the medicine. So thus, Gabriel took it into his own hands. There was nothing that he could do but both his parents were influenced by public perception. So he used it to his advantage. He began telling everyone. Left, right and centre, he was coming out to people. Just to pressure his parents. And it worked.
Sebastian did, admittedly, benefit from it. It made him and his family seem progressive, accepting. By the age of thirteen, Adelaide was now officially Gabriel Waldo Malfoy. He started medically transitioning and by the age of sixteen, the present day, he was able to pass off as a cis male. Not that he was able to go stealth, everyone knew for obvious reasons. No turning back when you scream it from the rooftop.
