Ruby's father died before she was born. She was raised by a single mother who always said Ruby was "special" and never hid anything from her daughter. When Ruby was 16, her mother brought a man into their lives who turned out to be a demon and tried to kill them both. It shook Ruby's mother to her core, so she wanted out. At the age of 18, Ruby received permission from her mother to choose her own life path, but Ruby also chose a normal life without magic and ended up in Witchness Protection.
