Wang Chunyu and his wife Huang Mingxia were both very powerful wizards from long lines of pure-blood wizards. Chunyu hailed from Changsha, China while Mingxia hailed from Beijing, China. At first the two wizards didn't get along, and some could even say they never did even after they got married. It was early 2002 when the couple had first met, and they had got married later that year. At first everything seemed alright with the couples marriage, but after Mingxia had gotten pregnant with twins in 2004, tension arouse between the two and their parents.
Truth be told Mingxia's parents never liked Chunyu, and the fact that he had gotten their daughter pregnant made things worse than they already were. After Mingxia told her parents the news that she was pregnant with twins, they immediately began pushing her to get a divorce from Chunyu. With things between the two already not going well, Mingxia promised her parents she would get a divorce from Chunyu after the twins were born.
In February of 2005, Mingxia gave birth to two baby boys whom they named Chen and Zitao. And in keeping her promise to her parents, got a divorce from Chunyu after four months of raising the twins together. However things didn't go according to her plan when Chunyu wanted custody over at least one of the twins. In an attempt to avoid going to court with her now ex-husband, Mingxia snuck out at night intending to get both twins and leave the country with them, but she only managed to carry off one twin, which turned out to be Zitao, meaning Chen had been left behind to be taken care of by Chunyu.
When Chunyu woke up to only one child, he was honestly relieved. Chunyu had never wanted two kids, and now that Mingxia was out of the picture he could finally do whatever he wanted when he wanted to do it. And that included how he raised Chen. Needless to say Chen wasn't in good hands with Chunyu. He was always drunk and could hardly look after himself, let alone look after a baby who wasn't even a year old yet. Ever since Mingxia had left, Chen was always malnourished and he was almost always sick because of it.
From the young age of five, Chen was heavily abused by Chunyu, both mentally and physically. Which adding on to him constantly being sick, was a deadly pairing which could have resulted to his death if Chunyu didn't marry another pure-blood wizard named Hui. When Hui came along, Chunyu decided it was about time to take better care of Chen, which he did to an extent. With Hui's help, Chen managed to come back from being sick every day to only getting the odd flu here and there. But as healthy as Hui had gotten Chen, it didn't stop Chunyu from abusing him when Hui wasn't home.
After four years of marriage, Hui was still blind to the fact that Chen had been getting abused by Chunyu since before the marriage. It was hard for Chunyu to cover up his tracks at first, having to put makeup on Chen to cover bruises and other injuries so nobody would find out after all. But after four years of abuse he had gotten used to it and because it became second nature to Chen, he learned how to apply it by himself.
It wasn't until Chen turned ten that Hui found out about when Chunyu was doing to Chen, and when she found out she immediately got him put in jail for the crimes he committed. Chen was relieved to have finally gotten free from his abusive father, and with the help of Hui he managed to get over his fear of talking to people. Only a year after Chen was saved by Hui, he got a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hui sent him off and promised him that she'd always be there if he ever needed somewhere to stay.
It was at Hogwarts where Chen was reconnected with his brother Zitao. Although at first they didn't remember each other, due to the last time they saw each other they were only five months old, the two instantly became close like brothers should be. After going through all seven years of schooling at Hogwarts, Chen graduated from Hogwarts alongside Zitao. The two now life in a flat together.
