When Jake was three, his younger sister decapitated his stuffed toy, Aix, a goat.
Type of Childhood
Jacob was born on January 10th to a pure-blood family. His father, Martin, was a professor of astronomy, so he made a big deal about Jacob, and Jacob's siblings' star signs. Martin, as a Cancer, valued his family, and wished all the best for his son, but Jacob despised his father's superstitious astronomical beliefs. Jake was a Capricorn, so his thoughts were all very logical, so the fact that the placement of the stars affected his life didn't compute. His first sign of magic was when he immediately healed his sister's broken kneecap after she fell out of a tree. This pleased his father, as knees were usually associated with Capricorns.
