Hey everybody! As promised, I sort of changed my story to make much more sense. This is the information that people would want to know, because i will make references to this alot! So read it before you move on. So, the chapters will be under construction, but don't be surprised that alot of the original stuff stays in the story.
Thanks to everyone who have been very patient with this.

History: Merlin himself was born and raised in England, hundreds of years before the founding of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Merlin never had children of his own, but had an apprentice by the name of Rune, who was a complete master over ancient writings; but will later be known as Ancient Runes. Merlin trusted his apprentice with his very life, and in turn, gave him all his magic, all his knowledge, and his very being to him. At the time, Rune didn't understand what was happening, but when he went home that day, he had found out that his wife was pregnant.
Ecstatic by this fantastic news, he had ran to his master to find him dead and gone. Saddened by this, he had dug a grave far away so no one would disturb him, and gave his loving master a proper farewell. When he had returned to his wife, she was able to perform magic, and Rune had understood what his master gave him. To make sure that his family was well protected, they traveled around Europe for quite some time. Finally, after some months, his beautiful baby girl was born, in the Country of Spain, the very place where they have decided to stay.
After many centuries, the master's apprentice's family still stayed in Spain. However, for every generation that was born, only one child was able to be born, either being a girl or boy, in that order. It was never a girl or boy twice. After quite some time, the last child of the line was Alejandro Matthews, who was married to pureblood witch , Alba Garcia. Alejandro was tried for treason and murder the very day that his daughter was born, Elizabeth Artemis Matthews. Alejandro was killed on the eve of his daughter's first birthday, and Alba was distraught. After sixteen years of heavy drinking, Alba Garcia Matthews had died and left her daughter in the hands of the Spanish Ministry of Magic. The beautiful teen had been put into an orphanage, where she was abused and raped many times by other orphaned pureblood wizards.
After having enough it all, Elizabeth had used her knowledge of magic that she read over the years and escaped to England. There, she had encountered Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts, and was accepted as a seventh year Gryffindore. Elizabeth had befriended Myra and Remus Lupin (twins), Sirius Black, Lily Evans, and James Potter, and had found out that she was pregnant two months after she escaped. Not bothered by this information, her friends where very supportive, and was there for her. Elizabeth and Sirius begun to date at the end of their seventh year, and Lily and James had just discovered that she was also two months pregnant, however, a few weeks behind Elizabeth.
After both babies were born, Elizabeth having a girl, to her utter shock, name Nicolai, and Lily having a baby boy, whose name is Harry, the six friends became inseparable. However, tragedy struck on the babies first Halloween when the Dark Lord had paid them a visit. James and Lily Potter had died in the tragic accident, with Harry surviving the killing curse. Nicolai had fused her magic with Harry's to stop Voldemort, and he fled. Elizabeth and Myra had taken Nicolai and fled, after they had checked to see if Harry was fine. After that, they escaped to America where they spent 15 years in hiding.
Upbringing: Nicolai was treated like a child until the age of 5, that's when Eli and Myra decided to tell her everything. After that, Nicolai was taught magic, defensive and offensive spells, and her mom taught her wandless magic. Even though Elizabeth lived in England for two years and in America for a few years, she still speaks fluent Spanish and refuses to abandon her heritage. Aside from teaching her daughter magic, Elizabeth taught Nicolai how to read, write, and speak Spanish, and at times taught Myra as well. At the age of 8, Nicolai had lost her mom, and she feels guilty about it to this very day, because she thinks it was her fault.
Infancy: The year until Nicolai turned one, it was all fun and games, but after that, it all turned down hill.
Childhood: 5-8, Nicolai never felt like a kid, only at times when Myra bought her a toy for her birthday and her mom baked a cake. Other than that, they were always traveling to a new place every other day so as not to get caught.
Adolescence: 8-15, Nicolai had decided that she couldn't be a kid anymore, not after she lost her mum. So she decided to read every magic book she can get her hands on, and tries to master her uncontrollable magic. And to still remember what her mom taught her, she at times would buy a few books in Spanish so as not to lose the only connection she still had to her mom. Although things become much more complicated after she starts dating Harry Potter.
