Keya was a complete and utter accident, although no one quite has the heart to say it to her face she's perfectly aware of the fact. Keya was born to Jayesh and Anika Shafiq of the original pureblood family on the 18th of march 2022, the youngest of four with an older sister three years above her. Keya was never planned, a surprise baby that would forever be the last resort to inherit the kingdom.
Keya was a spoilt child, but being the baby of the family she could do no wrong. With three older siblings even despite her parents best efforts she was always last and she always would be. The truth was, her parents just didn't quite know how to raise yet another child. They were sure they were passed that stage after Saanvi's birth.
Keya could never say she wasn't loved, it wasn't her parents way. They always went out of their way to make her feel safe and loved, allowing her to blossom in a safe environment. The problem was, Keya didn't care for the safe environment. She found the whole thing of being a part of the Shafiq family to be a bore. She never even attempted to live up to the expectations of her parents, she had no interest in it. As far as she was concerned, what was the point? She wasn't the heir.
As a child it was little things. Refusing to play with the other kids of respectable people, when she was forced to the other kids would usually end up crying to their parents because she'd done something horrid like cutting off the pony tail of the ambassador's daughter, or causing a snake to appear in the play room (quite a feat for a eight year old) almost biting the poor boy that had been sent in to play whilst her father negotiated a deal (Her first sign of magic, a fact that did end up resulting in a congratulations after a stern talking to)
So by the time her acceptance to mahoutokoro came, her parents were almost relieved. They figured that by sending her to school she'd learn to interact better with others. It was a naive hope really. In fact, it really just made her worse.
Trouble seemed to follow her everywhere, or at least that's what her parents thought. They still couldn't believe that their daughter went out of her way to look for trouble. Which was what was really happening, bored of the silver spoon lifestyle she went out of her way to find something, anything that resembled excitement. She would hang around with less than stellar characters, date people that her parents would never dream of letting her near. She would break the rules to such an extent it was only the Shafiq name that kept her in the school.
But not even the Shafiq name could protect her after what she did in her fourth year. No, nothing can protect you at mahoutokoro once your robes turn white. All the money in the world couldn't have saved her from her expulsion from mahoutokoro. And nothing in the world could ever remove to looks of disgust that were forever ingrained in her mind. Even to this day, she still hasn't quite told anyone the truth about what she did that was so bad she broke the japanese wizards code.
Her expulsion from Mahoutokoro was just one of the reasons that resulted in the Shafiq's migration to England. The main one being due to the family business, but even the move didn't quieten her down. Even when Hogwarts accepted her (much to her families relief and surprise) She didn't even attempt to pretend to be a polite member of society. Honestly, her family are mainly just surprised she might make it to graduation at Hogwart.
