Parents were White Council wizards; gave her some basic “tenets” by which to live, such as “never take a life” and “never transform another.” She went into medicine because both her parents were in the medical field and it just….felt right to her. She married young, at 22, to a young man who knew she had some magical abilities and loved her anyway. Five years of marriage, and talks of starting a family, ended abruptly when Calliope came home to find her husband torn to pieces. The cops believed she didn’t do it, but they couldn’t (or wouldn’t) investigate her husband’s murder. She turned to….outside influences to help her investigate. That’s how she met Kristoff and found her way into this ragtag group.
