Alistair and Carmen Fitzgerald Lascano married not out of love but out of business benefits. It was arranged. Alistair was the CEO of Lumos Broadcasting Network whilst Carmen was the CEO of Nox Records. It made sense, didn't it? Of course, though it was arranged, it was successful to a degree. They did love each other and brought seven children into the world throughout the next decade. They were a heavily successful couple, especially in the wizarding world, and throughout the years, they worked to increase their pull, especially Alistair. However, as much Alistair loved his wife, he couldn't keep himself faithful. Throughout the years, he had affair after affair. Actresses, models, assistants, he wasn't picky. Naturally, this resulted in other children, all of whom Alistair kept silent.
Troy was one of the twins, the fourth pregnancy, the oldest by nearly a minute. His father named him and Troy was the only one who Alistair had a hand in naming. He was named after the mighty city of Troy. Which some people might find ironic considering the city's demise. Still, Troy supposed the meaning behind it was there. He was a quiet child, rarely making a fuss, barely even cried, and it was a trait that stuck as he grew into a toddler. Though, that isn't to say he wasn't a sweet child. He loved the people around them and constantly followed his mother and siblings around. His father? Barely saw him except as a figurehead or a presence at the dinner table. As he grew up, he was the type of child to be seen splitting his food into little bits and going around giving pieces of it to people. When it came to his siblings, he tried to get along with them. He was the type of brother to copy everything his older siblings do because he thought they were cool. It didn't take long for Troy to figure out to stay away from Tegen, though, which was something that he never really stopped doing.
Of course, he wasn't blind to the constant presence of lawyers. As a child, and still to the present day, he wasn't privilege to know what they were for. In reality, they were there when someone accused his father of sexual assault. Or a mistress was threatening to go public with Alistair's baby. He hated them though, found himself hiding in his room whenever they made an appearance. Of course, growing older, his father became more active in his life. As much as Alistair was willing. Troy does have memories of sitting on his father's lap during some event or another. When he was seven, his father told him he was going to be the athletic one of the family. When he was eight, he had been on a broom for a few hours each day, a couple of other hours watching or playing baseball. He hated it. He threw tantrum after tantrum, begging his mother to let him to quit. It was here that he had his first magical incident. He tried to break his broom. Eight year old Troy had broken into the gardener's shed and stole a hatchet. For three hours, or until he was found by a maid, he tried to saw the broom in half. Unfortunately, every time he did, his magic mended it back together. Suppose his subconscious knew how much trouble Troy would get into if his father found out.
Of course, there was one incident that truly got him into trouble with his father. Alistair found Troy painting his nails. Troy didn't think much of it, he was nine. He knew the practise was technically meant for girls but he was bored and he wanted to see how he looked. So he did them. Did a terrible job of it, of course, half the paint was on his skin, but that didn't matter to his father. He spent hours getting yelled at. Told that not one of Alistair's children will become a 'tranny', though Troy had no idea what that even meant. It was only until he went to Hogwarts did he understand what his father called him. Afterwards, he didn't really do anything on that line, except once or twice, but he made sure it was in secret and no one would find out. He did find himself liking video games and rathered playing them than playing sport, even though his father complained and complained about it. He collected both modern and olden day devices. He has playstations, X-box, Nintendo DS and 3DS, gamecubes, nintendo 64. Anything he could get his hands on.
When he was eleven, he finally was sent to Hogwarts. A miracle. His family had actually thought he was a squib considering his only magical incident was kept a secret by Troy. His father was very proud of him. Something Troy hated himself for being pleased about. It was a miracle event for both himself and his family. Sorted into Hufflepuff, he immersed himself into the school as best he could. Of course, his name brought attention to him, for being the offspring of both Alistair Fitzgerald and Carmen Lascano. He didn't really pay much mind to it. For the first year, he tried to get to know people, tried to become friends but he found himself preferring to play super Mario on one of his handheld devices. He hated flying and was glad he didn't have to do it in his upcoming year. Of course, that didn't stop his father from suggesting trying out for the Quidditch team.
