Teo and his sister Carmen were born on a large farm in Spain. Their parents went out of their way to ensure their lives would be nothing but perfect. Both he and his sister were born with enchanting purple eyes, and their parents took this as a good omen. Four years together, Teo and Carmen were incredibly close and did everything together. However, one day their parents left and never came home. With nothing else they could do, Teo and Carmen wandered into town and were taken in by the Orphanage. After two weeks passed, the Orphanage had no choice but to put the siblings up for adoption. This angered Carmen, something Teo hadn't seen before, as she felt that their parents had abandonded them.
He didn't want to believe it was true, but soon his tears turned to bitterness of heart as day after day passed, and no other answer seemed plausible. On top of this pain, Teo was soon left all alone, when invaders snuck in during the night and took his sister. For years, Teo sat alone in the orphanage. No one would hang out with him, or talk to him, as his eyes scared them off. Not only did his eyes recieve caution, but his behavior as well. Teo was different from the rest of the children in the orphanage, and he was painfully aware of it. He would often cry in frustration, alone and distraught. He would later find out what exactly his frustration would lead him to do. Only five years later, Teo witnessed death. A thief had been chased down and killed in the streets while he was out collecting for the Orphanage. He was fascinated by the swirl of red the thief's blood caused. Teo stared, wide-eyed and enamored at the site of the man's lifeless gaze and body. The fascination was just the beginning.
It would be stuffed deep down inside, however, as a year later... Teo's parents returned for him. The shock everyone felt when Teo's parents walked into the orphanage was felt across town. The Saint family had been thought dead, and Teo was more than happy to go with them. At home again, however, he remembered Carmen. His parents claimed they had been stuck in another country under siege for years. Teo didn't believe them, and he was growing frustrated by the day at their refusal to look for Carmen. They argued that there'd be no way to track whoever took her. Teo stopped asking after two years... but he didn't forget.
At 12 years old, Teo despised and loved his parents. He had missed them, but he couldn't get over that they had abondoned him and Carmen. Teo vented his frustrations through simple matters until finally he cracked. The first person he killed was someone from town. They'd been in the forest. It was late, but not quite dark. Teo knew those woods, but the other boy did not, and Teo couldn't resist; how could he resist? Teo slammed his own head into a tree, catching the attention of the boy. The temptation didn't leave his head, and instead, Teo grabbed the boy and repeatedly slammed their head into tree.
When Teo woke up the next morning, he felt lighter, happier. This continued for three years, until Teo convinced himself to calm down. He needed to stop. He knew it wasn't right, he knew it was what made him different. People in town were perplexed by the murders, and disappearances but no one had ever suspected him, no. Why would anyone suspect Teo with his baby-face and adorable smile. However, Teo... wanted a normal life. He did. He wanted a normal life. Until he found Carmen again. Tira, her name was now. They knew each other immediately, and Teo's head ached but he was happy. He was all too happy to take up the blade and put an end to their pathetic parents who abandonded them and abondonded her. She soon also introduced him to someone she also called brother. His name was Dalton. He was curious, but if Tira called him brother, than Teo accepted him easily. At the idea of burning the farm down and then heading into town, they set to work.
That night, Teo, Tira and Dalton all watched the farm burn with grins on their faces. Teo was happy again! And he was free like a bird. The three of them began their reign of terror and murder across the town and country, making a name for themselves. Because they were always seemingly accompanied by ravens and crows, the three were known as Avis Mortem across the land; Bird of Death.
