Shortly after the end of the Second Wizarding War, a Malaysian witch named Zarina Megat took a vacation to Europe, leaving her daughter Lyssa in the care of a family friend. She went sightseeing and eventually ended up in France for the tourist attractions. During her stay, she had a fling with a French Ministry worker named Avery Chrysanthe. The two parted ways when Zarina's vacation ended. However, this wouldn't be the last time they saw each other.
Hardly a month after her little trip, Zarina discovered she was pregnant. The revelation forced her to take a break from managing her family's Apothecary and to temporarily hand down the responsibility to her younger brother.
Several months later, her second daughter and Lyssa's half-sister was born. Despite the fact that the child was born out of wedlock, Zarina could not help but love her daughter like any other mother. She named her after her favorite flower, the forget-me-not, and due to her father being French, gave her the second name of Pyrenee.
Myosotis led a happy childhood till the age of 9. Her bubbly, outgoing and straightforward personality often clashed with half-sister Lyssa's own secretive behavior, and many a time did their mother have to break up fights. Zarina had been married to Lyssa's father briefly, but he had died in a brewing accident when Zarina had only been three months pregnant with Lyssa. In fear that Myosotis would start asking questions, Zarina lied and told her daughter that her father was also dead. And so Myo didn't question.
Though Myo desperately wanted to be close to her half-sister, Lyssa obviously wanted little to do with her. Myo would always try to impress her older sibling with her bursts of magic, but this seemed to shunt Lyssa, who was thought to be a Squib, further away. Lyssa eventually had had enough, and during a small venture to a nearby forest with Myo painstakingly following her, her delayed magic burst from within, emitting a heat wave that touched everything within a ten-feet radius. Myo was knocked out, more from the repercussion of slamming into a tree trunk than the heat, and when Zarina found them, she was furious and blamed the elder. She punished Lyssa rather unfairly, and the latter finally began to plan to run far, far away from this horrible, biased home. She disappeared on the eve of her eleventh birthday, and Zarina didn't care enough to inform the authorities.
Ascent to Adulthood
Myo blamed herself from her sister's disappearance despite her mother's futile attempts at dissuading her. She grew less social, but not for long, for an eternally bright soul like Myo's simply could not be dampened. Shortly after her eleventh birthday, Myosotis Chrysanthe received her invitation to the Malaysian Institute for Advanced Magical Education.
The sudden change in her life distracted her from Lyssa's disappearance, and every school year, Myo would shed her gloominess and bask in the wonders of both magic and her friends' companionship. She held a distinct aptitude for Charms, Potions, and Care of Magical Creatures that she explored to the fullest degree. Her OWLs and NEWTs were passed with flying colors, scoring Os and Es, and just a few As in some subjects that she didn't particularly like...*cough*History of Magic*cough*.
Upon graduation, Zarina expected her to take over the Apothecary, but to her surprise, Myo refused. She had her heart set on finding her sister, even after so many years. Grudgingly giving her blessing, Zarina allowed her favorite daughter to do so. Their Apothecary had extended in chains all over the country, which meant that Myo could do as she pleased for some time. Unfortunately, news of Lyssa reached her first while she ventured through France.
Somehow Lyssa had become part of the Department of International Magical Cooperation in Malaysia without their knowing (to this day, Myosotis is unable to figure out HOW she evaded her, as naturally, she had searched there first). Her credentials, shockingly, came from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which was all the way from freaking England. The authorities had somehow (no doubt magically) tracked down Lyssa's closest friends and relatives, and informed them. More to Myo's shock than anyone, she had gained ownership of a medium sized house just by the outskirts of London. Though she loved her sister dearly, she never thought Lyssa would remember after so long. Zarina was forced to submit to her daughter's wishes to manage their Apothecary chain from the said house as she investigated her sister's death from the beginning.
Myo Apparated to Britain as soon as she got her papers in order in 2025, almost a whole year after Lyssa's death. Lyssa's house contained trinkets and souvenirs from all over the world that filled her with homesickness and an overpowering wish to have grown up with Lyssa.
Searching high and low in the house, Myo found nothing during the first two weeks. Disheartened, she went out for a bite to eat in Jamie's Bar and Grille and met the vegetarian vampire Scathach Morgenstern. After a quick conversation, Myo decided to be reckless and offered to babysit for the vampire's adopted twins. Scatty readily agreed, and they headed for her house of residence on foot. Soon afterwards, Myo met the twins, whom she found quite adorable and sweet. Informed that the two were starting Hogwarts in the upcoming term, the Malaysian simply couldn't help but smile and tell them that even though she had not attended the school herself, she had heard wonderful things about it.
Babysitting was added to her list of duties, but it worked with her potioneer career. After an inquiry with the Aurors regarding her sister, Myo met Sarah Grey but ultimately refused the somewhat-under-the-table help offered. At some point, she became acquainted with a Muggle-born orphan, Rosa Hamilton. Growing fond of the young girl, she adopted Rosa, though their relationship leaned more to a sisterly bond rather than a mother-daughter one. They had a good share of fun times together, and Myo never regretted a single moment.
However, the laughter was short-lived. Myo gained a new lead on her sister's case nearing the start of Rosa's second term, and pursued it without a second thought. The killer seemed to have finally caught on to her when a shopping trip went awry. The last thing that her thoughts produced was how sorry she was for not having done better, for Rosa and Lyssa.
