History

  • Basilio was born eleven minutes after his fraternal twin, Aurelio. His parents were Emilio Sandoval and Cassandra Young, both Fennec fox shifters (bitten and born respectively). The witch his mother was a familiar to was present at his birth and his middle name, Vincent, was after him.
  • Emilio looked after the family business, a software company he founded in the eighties and began grooming his eldest, Aurelio to one day take over.
  • Bas childhood was a happier time. His parents were wealthy, they lived in one of the more quieter and well-groomed neighborhoods, Beaumont-Wilshire and they often got what they wanted, except for their parents to be home with them, unfortunately.
  • The boys grew up with a nanny and attended after school lessons for piano and ballroom dancing. They went on to attend a private school in Northeast Portland.
  • Aurelio become increasingly disinterested in the family business and instead was more enthralled by art. Bas helped him with his homework to help him keep up so their father didn't get on his case about it since he knew it was important to him. Aurelio went through a blue period in his art starting in the third grade and lasting until high school because neither of their parents were around. Their father was busy due to work and their mother, being a socialite, was either at a party or serving her witch, Vincent.
  • The boys become best friends with the live-in maid's daughter and often played and studied with her after school. Bas eventually developed a crush on her and was always very eager to help her and be there for her while his brother often teased her and often made her cry.
  • After the boys graduated from high school, Aurelio and Emilio have an argument over his future. Aurelio makes a case about going to art school and Emilio insists that his place is at the company. Basilio encourages his father to let Aurelio go and offers to take over for him instead. Though Bas wasn't certain if the family business was the right fit for him either, he wanted to help form a compromise.
  • As Aurelio settled into art school, Basilio attended the University of Portland as a computer engineering major with a minor in business. The classes weren't exactly what he would call fun but he did well and often earned his father's praise. Bas honestly looked forward to his free time more than he did his career.
  • Aurelio begins dating their childhood friend, much to Bas' discomfort as he still has feelings for her. Again, he pushes his own feelings aside for the sake of his brother. This puts a visible strain between the two brothers.
  • With only one year left at the university, Bas realizes he has cold feet about joining his father at the company. Instead, he dreams of one day becoming a detective but there was no way he could tell his father that, not when everyone's depending on him. He's supposed to be the dependable one after all but his armor is beginning to crack. With the walls of his apartment covered in red string due to his investigation into the university's mysteries though, it's only a matter of time until he reaches his full breaking point.
