Growing up on the road, Texas has taken after her parents in her love for adventuring. She enjoys wandering and getting lost in places, discovering new areas. Texas is one of those girls who refuses to see that she's a girly-girl. She's a tomboy at heart, and even if her mother still tries to get her to dress up, she'll always make sure she can still do the things she enjoys. Texas may be in the middle of her family, but when she needs to, she can easily get involved. She's a bit headstrong and stubborn at times, but most of the time, she's one of those girls who loves to explore and go adventuring... That may explain why she was placed in Thunderbird, the house of the adventurers in Ilvermorny.
Texas doesn't always understand why magicals say that their way is better, when the no-magicals have obiviously perfected the way exploring and adventuring should be done. She refuses to see the fun in having large tents that are basically houses. For her, it's when the wind is in her hair and she's running and leaping about. That's the fun in adventuring for her. She's kind and gentle and hardworking to the extreme sometimes, but usually, she is a person around who always seems to have a smile present and a few reassuring words for anyone who needs it.
Born right in the middle of the five Lantana children to adventurers William and Sicily, Texas Cassandra has grown up on the road. It was rare to see the Lantana family in town, much preferring to explore and hike in their spare time. It's not a surprise that she fell in love with adventuring at a young age. Texas was very much a tomboy from the moment she learned to walk. She could always be found nearby her elder brother, Diego, playing in the water or learning one thing or another from him. She sees him as a role model, and it's been that way since she was one.
As the Lantana children grew, the family begun to split up. William would take whoever wanted to go out exploring while Sicily stayed home with Austin and Berlin, the two youngest members. When she was seven, her magic manifested. Texas was free-climbing when her foot slipped, and before anyone knew it, she was falling. Somehow, and not one member in her family still understood why this happened, she suddenly slowed enough and safely landed on her feet at the bottom of the rocky slope. Four years later, when they were hiking the Grand Canyon, her Ilvermorny letter showed up.
When she entered Ilvermorny, Texas was immediately chosen by Thunderbird. She finished her first two years of schooling, before her father surprised news on her when she returned for summer. They were planning on doing a backpacking trip across Europe, but in order to do so, they needed to move to England. The Lantana family moved to Wales, with Texas transferring to Hogwarts to start her third year.
