Matteo and Kendal go way back, as they were high school sweethearts. After graduation they weren't sure if they wanted to stay together, but no one ever took initiative to break up. On the contrary, they moved in together and the next step seemed normal: marriage. Not much later Kendal turned out to be pregnant.
Mara was born! A beautiful baby girl, calm and almost unnoted compared to her cousin Max, who's fathers are the talk of the town.
With loving parents Mara learned how to walk and talk by her mother Kendal, and she got potty trained by her father Matteo.
When turning into a child, Mara was immediately put on a private school. Kendel said that a good education is everything in life; without you wouldn't be able to get a good job. When Mara would ask if she went to private school Kendal would always get annoyed and said she shouldn't be so cheeky. So often Mara would just do whatever her mom told her to do; go to private school and she did it, go get straight A's and she did it. What else was she supposed to do?
Although Mara was close to her father, and just accepted her mother the way she is, she started to notice that here parents were a bit... boring! To not disappoint her parents she choose the fortune aspiration, but she was sure there had to be more in life than school and studying. Mara never had many friends and never really cared about them.
She met distant relative Riley Curious and Mara thought the girl with bright green skin and weird glasses was amazing! She knew her mom would be shocked by this friendship, and that was only a reason to like Riley even more. Riley also taught her a very important thing Kendal never did; boys! Riley introduces her to Amin Couderc, an old flame of her mother who stayed suspiciously young. Mara and Amin hit it really off, and Mara shares her first kiss with him.
