History: In the late 1800's a boy was born in Greece to a family with many unique children. They were all raised in the beliefs of Wiccanism. In these times in Greece would not have many religions out side of Orthodox. The difference was quite uncanny and the Greek people wouldn't deal with this. The study of Wicca is different because they believe that there gods and goddess are not of the same life. Wicca was not accepted in Greece so the Colandris family left for Salem Massachusetts. In Salem, people were very weary of religion, though it was a freedom, people didn't like the practices. It was unsafe and most people had racism to wards this.
Alexander growing up in Salem got to know the community at bad times. Though it was years from the over all witch trial, people were still afraid of the practice and the differences in religion. Many Wiccans believe in magic, a force they see as being capable of manipulation through the practice of witchcraft or sorcery. This was the case and people would naturally have fear. Alex was a friendly boy when he would practice his believes he would leave the rest of the world out of it. It made him unconvertible waring his cloak and caring his Wiccon scrolls in Salem. When times got rough the small community blamed it on the religious acts being practiced. Though it had nothing to do with the veggie famine, or the hardships in life the only way the small town could take the idea of lost was blaming the religions.
Many people wanted to stop this from happening but people were being torched for not believing in the normalities of religion and any unique ones would be criticized. With in a year, both Alexander's parents were arrested and incarcerated. The boy didn't know what do do, being raised by his sister's wasn't easy, he was quite the independent one and when he ran away he ended up in New York. Staten Island was where he first met the distribution center. With no job and bairly surviving off of what he left with the boy had to find a job. When he started to observe the Newsie of Staten Island he became curious to why they were all about pride, when he finally realized that there was many different boroughs fighting for the title to be the best Newsies he wanted to be part of it.
Though he would never leave his religion and still wear his cloak and carry his scrolls tucked safely in his waist he asked the leader to sell for him. Alexander would practice spells on his own time when he was given the Alias Hocus Pocus. This was a term used in many magic acts, yet people often didn't understand this. He sells papers all over New York, no one territory is marked as his but he knows that Staten is home, no matter what he had home there, with out many friend, he always can start a conversation, and ever since he arrive in Staten he was accepted...for the most part.
