Born in Los Angeles, California to middle class parents, Anastasia Maverick had a pretty normal childhood. Other than the magical factor of course. She, like the rest of her family, was magically inclined. She had her first magical experience at the age of six when a girl at school pissed her off and got sprayed down by the "broken" water fountain. Needless to say, Anastasia never lost that spunk.
Unlike her business-driven brother Arlon, Anastasia was more concerned with having fun. That included partying, hooking up, and doing less than legal things with her friends. Whatever Anastasia did, she did it to enjoy herself. Including moving to South Korea where her parents were from.
The Kang Clan is a family of very wealthy South Koreans that acquired their money though questionable means. No one knows how they came to their wealth, but no one bothers to question the powerful tycoons. It's still a mystery, but most believe the family makes up its own mob. Kang Taejong, one of the younger Kangs, took a different route with his money and set up a successful clubbing chain, Seesaw Clubs. It was at one of these clubs that he met Anastasia. She was not wealthy like her brother, but her personality more than made up for it. The spunky girl from America stole his heart and soon became part of the Kang Clan herself.
A few years down the road, Anastasia became pregnant with triplet boys. Wanting to commemorate all the cities where she and Taejong had their first milestones (first date, first kiss, and engagement), she named the three boys Daegu, Seoul, and Daejeon. After the triplets, she had a baby girl Heeyeon. Suddenly having fun wasn't as important as those four crazy kids.
She fulfilled the role of Eomma with everything she had. She loved and cared for those kids more than any other mother could. And it was a good thing too because all except Daejeon got her back for those rebellious years in high school. Anastasia needed all the patience she could get. Right before the boys were to start attending a school of magic, Anastasia and the family moved to Italy where they currently live and enjoy life to this day.
