Raised by his grandmother Irinushka Radomir, in Dermenino, an abandoned village in the Poshekhonye District of Yaroslavl Oblast, in northern Russia. Quinton and Virgilia were abandoned with their wizarding grandparents as toddlers, Irinushka, their Pure-blood paternal grandmother by this point was nearly a hag.
Masters of their preferred forms of magic, Irinushka and Grigory raised the twins as they did with Motya. They always wanted twins. Now, in their old age they had them. It was the best dream retirement that they were going to get. The twins were taught to brew, and cook out of cauldrons, and were trained in Martial Magic.
Quinton, and Virgilia at the age of 10 were transferred to the Academy before attending any other school like Aurora would do in the following ten years. They were each enrolled in a Russian Wizarding school, and promptly sent to the Academy. The Erchantrudis kids are all members of different houses Virgilia is in Aethelberg, Quin is in Gomes, and younger sister Aurora is in Charbonneau.
Grigory Denis, Quinton's grandfather, was 'ill' in one manner or another by his early teens, this left the girls, Quin, and their grandmother to care for themselves. They tended to his inexplicable cuts, bruises scrapes, and various other wounds he seemed to suffer from, whether or not he cared to be seen.
Quinton is the total package, he is unthinkably cruel, and he always has a veiled insult for even the sweetest, and quietest of individuals. He is a lover, and a fighter, and has been trained to fight. He wins very frequently because he refuses to lose. He will maim, wound, and incapacitate to the point of death for the self-described fun in torture before a kill. Unlike his sister Virgilia he disapproves of both the similarities or differences in Aurora, Virgilia or himself.
Quin has short blonde hair, and green eyes. He has the kind of eyes that look either brown, or, green, or hazel or, blue or grey, maybe violet? Color-changing. When he was born they were green, therefore they are green, that is what he says, that is what they are. He is a very realistic and down-to-earth kind of guy. He dressed for the job he wants not the job he has. Quin likes to be seen, and heard but not arrogantly.
