Violette grew up in Sydney, Australia. She grew up with her adoptive parents, Ian and Victoria Wilson, as her real one died in a car crash. She thought they were her real parents, and hated them, and her younger adoptive siblings, Lily and Ethan.
She started at a primary school, and soon was diagnosed with ADHD. This put her down. Even though she was only seven, she just stopped. Her parents made her do all the house-work, chores, everything. She tried to fight back, but they locked her in the cupboard under the stairs. If she didn't fight back she was still sent and locked into her room. At fifteen, she just lost it. She ran away.
She spent five days on the streets of Sydney, selling off her possessions to buy food. On her sixth day, she wandered into a forest. She set up a camp there. During the night, one of Lupa's wolves found her, and woke her up. Vi was terrfied, and tried to fight. But the wolf didn't fight ack. it led her to the Wolf House. Violette trained at the Wolf House for two years, and then was sent to Camp Jupiter, where she was claimed as a child of Nox.
