History[edit | edit source]
Antonio was born sometimes in the 1850s, to the seventh Lord of the Italian Zamperini Clan of Magicians and an unnamed Japanese courtesan.
Following his birth, as a means to hide the scandal that their Head had spawned a bastard while his wife was still pregnant, their Clan decided to take him in as one of their own, trading him from his mother for over 1,000,000 yen.
Growing up, Antonio was treated like a servant by the Zamperini Clan, with only a handful of servants that truly cared about him. Due to him being the first child of the Clan, their magic automatically recognized him as the heir to the Clan until his half-brother could defeat him in combat, something that angered both his father and step-mother, as well as the Clan Elders, as they didn't deem a bastard child fitting for the position.
When he was around 12 years old, he and his younger half-brother for the first time. Despite their status and position, they quickly became close friends, much to their father and current Lady Zamperini's displeasure.
