James Castiel's ancestry came from a long line of Dark wizards. It was presumed that his ancestors were among the wizards who fought at the First Wizarding War. Slowly, generations by generations their fame as a dark wizard family crumbles. But after his father died from a false crime he didn't do, his family grew darker and darker again. So when Castiel was still a baby, her mother flees from United Kingdom and they both live in a small country not very known. They even changed their family name into Cho. Despite the dilemma, he was raised lovingly under the care of her mom. He grew up at a humble apartment that he and her mom is renting in Manila, Philippines.

Like any other kid, James has very normal life. He goes to school, plays soccer and mingle with his friends. Until one day, his magical abilities starts to manifest. James was eight when he started moving objects accidentally. He was nine when he could tell his dog to take a dump on the toilet bowl and many more.

Each day her mother would convince him that it was only in his imagination. This continues until he reaches the age of 11 when her mother couldn't cover up the truth anymore. One night, he receives a letter from Hogwarts inviting him to a school for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her mother then confessed that he is a wizard. She confessed that his mother didn't died from a car accident but from a false crime. She revealed everything to Castiel, except his father's name which Castiel definitively knew suspicious. James Castiel accepted the invitation, hoping to seek more truth about his identity.

He was a competent duelist of Gryffindor. He was able to apply his magical intellect for Dark Arts in duelling, however with great carefulness. Most of the time, he uses hexes. He rarely use curses. And being a skilled wizard in non-verbal and wandless magic, he utilize this skill taught by her mother every summer to his advantage during duels. He never enters a Wizards Duelling Competition, mainly because of lack of confidence.

This is a skill he inherited from her mother's line. Every summer, her mother would train him as she is very protective and wanted his son to be ready everytime, wandless or not. Up to now, Castiel is still training to master this kind of skill.

That is why he receives a Rowan wood, a wand wood that has not been in the hands of a Dark Wizard, for it's user has the purest hearts. It was cored with Phoenix feather, as it has chosen Castiel as well.
