TJ and Adelaide were Australian wizards that found each other through work. TJ played seeker for the Wollongong Warriors while Adelaide was the manger for the Thundelarra Thunderers. They met in a bar one night after a game and instantly hit it off. They started to date after that and nine months after their second date their first child was born, Daku.
A few years later, and a couple of kids after Daku, Matilda Lich was brought into the world. She was a curious child, known for wondering into places she shouldn't, and for her constant energy. Her first signs of magic happened during a particularly horrible storm the younger children were crying and were being comforted by their parents which left Matilda by herself. She'd been fine with the storm to begin with. That was. Until the powercut happened sending the entire house into darkness. Matilda, in her room alone had panicked and in her panic caused the lights in her room to turn on for only a moment. Her mother, who had been coming to check on her arrived in time to see the display of magic, and congratulated her. The moment power returned to the house they had a celebration.
Matilda led a happy life, she made friends. She could constantly be found surfing or rock climbing or anything else along those lines. She began attending the nearby wizarding school after her 11th birthday and hated every minute of it. She hated having to sit around all day, she resented the yelling she got because, after all, it wasn't really her fault she'd rather be outside doing activities like surfing than sitting in a dusty old classroom learning about the founders of the school and such things. Her only savour during her time at the Australian school was quidditch. She loved it, and spent every spare minute, especially those she should have spent revising, playing.
Shortly before her 4th year, TJ was offered the position of seeker for the Falmouth Falcons. So without a word in consultation to their children, they packed up and left Australia for England. Matilda resented her parents for not consulting them, and tearing them from the life they knew. But she slowly began to find her way around England, settling in better than she expected. However, the happiness that came from the new setting was not meant to last.
During a particularly cold winter holiday, Blake and Lillian were out playing. It wasn't until hours later when Daku and Matilda were sent to look for them for dinner did they know anything was wrong. They found the twins down by the river on their property, where it appeared Lillian had fallen in. Daku had ran to the house with her body whilst Matilda kept Blake warm. It wasn't until the pair returned to the house that they were told the devastating news that Lillian had died. Matilda was distraught at the loss of her sister, but she'd kept it together long enough to comfort Blake.
Matilda graduated from Hogwarts and was instantly picked up by the Ballycastle Bats as their beater who she played for for 2 years before she was offered a place in the scottish international team, obviously she leaped at the chance. And for the next 2 years she travelled the world with her team. It was during her travels that she met Alexander Kazakov. A few drinks too many and a one night stand resulted in something Matilda had never even thought about. A baby.
When she approached Kazakov about it he made it perfectly clear he didn't want anything to do with the child. Matty didn't know the first thing about kids, she never wanted to be a mother but she couldn't get rid of her baby. She took a break from quidditch shortly after she realised she was pregnant, it just wasn't safe for the baby. She settled down in Germany of all places where, 8 months later, on the 13th of June 2039 she gave birth to a baby girl.
Motherhood was a struggle for Matty, she hadn't even told anyone she was pregnant after all. She had no support and was too stubborn to ask for it. She'd probably have stayed on in Germany, raising her daughter alone if she hadn't received a job offer from the Montrose Magpies to play as their beater. Now, three months after the birth of her daughter she's returning to Britain for the first time in nearly 3 years.
