Andre’s parents were the definition of American college sweethearts. Bianca was a normal muggle girl who was studying modern art in a college near Alejandro Torres' hometown. He was a party boy in the fraternity that Bianca hung out with. The two clicked, and before they knew it, their four years in college were over - and Alejandro proposed to Bianca, knowing he didn't want her out of his life.
The two got married, and had their first two children, twins Alfonso and Andre. Not their last. They had four more, two daughters, and two sons. With the arrival of more and more new siblings, Andre thought that it was getting too loud at their home, and he didn’t like that. But he learned to deal with it, and he also learned to love them. They’re his family, after all.
Growing up, Andre mostly kept to himself. He let his siblings be the fun and cheerful ones, while he mostly kept to himself in the family library, reading books. He was always fascinated with the magical creatures he’d read about, and at a young age, he already knew that he wanted to work with them when he grew up; he wanted to become a magizoologist.
At age nine, Andre started exhibiting his magical abilities. He made a few books and scrolls float in the air after he got too frustrated with his younger siblings playing and screaming around him. He just couldn’t take the noise. Later on, he learned that his twin, Alfonso, had a magical moment as well. He tried not to show it, but Andre got really excited. He couldn’t wait for all the learning he’s going to experience, and while he really loves his family, he also yearned for a change of scenery.
And so, when it was time for hm and his twin to go to a magical school, he opted to go to Hogwarts, instead of the obvious choice in Castelobruxo. Andre had always been an independent child, and their parents acknowledged that, which is why they allowed him to go the United Kingdom. He got sorted into Hufflepuff shortly after his arrival, and things went smoothly. He got high grades, had a quiet group of friends, even developed new hobbies other than reading, like playing with gobstones; everything was pretty much perfect. Until it wasn’t.
On his fourth year, he and his friends got dragged into the dark forest by a bunch of rambunctious upperclassmen. They wanted to do some exploring, and Andre and his friends didn’t want to be called cowards, so when they were invited (see: coerced), they went with it. When they got to the deep part of the forest, they encountered a pack of rogue werewolves, and some of them got bit, including Andre. None of them were seriously harmed, and they were able to escape, but they knew that after that night, things were going to change.
Andre immediately told his family about the incident, and they helped him through with his transition. He did have some relatives who were also werewolves, so that also helped. At least he had a support group with people like him. He was grateful that his family accepted him for what he is, and he’s glad that they have no problems with him being a creature of the night.
Andre didn’t mind being a werewolf and although it was hard to accept at first, he grew up and was able to accept himself and what the future now holds for him. He continued at Hogwarts, graduated and lived his life. He was able to pursue further studies and actually became a magizoologist, interning for some people and travelling the world for a short while, collecting data on various beasts. He also did some excellent quality research and by the age 21, he’s already established himself as one of the best in the industry. By 23, he hears that there is an opening in the British Ministry of Magic that suits his skills, and decided to apply for it, and see how things would turn out.
