Danielle grew up in Whiteash, her parents were both teachers in the high school and she had a very privileged upbringing. Her mother was a witch and although it was a secret from her father, Danielle always knew. When she was only an infant her mother would perform minor spells and Danielle would excitedly ask for her to do the magic again. She loved her mother’s magic and even as a child knew how to keep her mother’s secret. Every week her and her mother would go out and meet the rest of the coven. It was a huge part of Danielle’s social life and from a young age she was socialising with the witches and supernatural creatures of Whiteash. At thirteen she discovered the council and her mother’s place on the council. Her mother revealed that she intended for Danielle to take her place on the council one day. But there was one problem…she had yet to develop any powers.
She worried about it constantly, when she’d develop powers. How good she’d be with her powers. Whether people would respect her or not. She was an intelligent girl and sailed through school. But she her heart was in magic. When she was sixteen, she finally bloomed. Her powers took shape and although she wasn’t the strongest witch, she was the smartest and the most charismatic in Whiteash. She left town when she was eighteen with the blessing of her mother and she attended Stanford University of law. When she finally returned to town she was a successful lawyer and had perfected control in her magic. But when she reached Whiteash she found out the worst, her parents had split up. Her father had found out the truth, found out what her mother had been hiding from him for years. Danielle’s mother loved her father, she’d been protecting him and scared of what her husband would think. Danielle was terrified of what her father would think of her, but her father accepted his daughter. Explaining it wasn’t what she was he hated…it was the lies he hated. Danielle didn’t know how she felt about it. She loved her father and her mother, but all she had ever done was keep her mother’s secrets.
Danielle is still in contact with her mother and her father. A few years ago her mother made the decision to retire, meaning that Danielle took over her position on the council. She owns her own law firm in Whiteash and spends almost all her time at work, in the coven or on the council. She doesn’t have a chance for a family or a relationship even if she can be lonely at times. She see’s herself as a guide to the younger witches and is trying to help them to the best of her ability.
