Current status
Olivia is a "new" arrival to New Zealand as she has not visited in the past fifteen years. Her mother, Estrella Drage, recently passed away from a terminal illness and left the family's property in Obsidian Harbor to her children. Olivia decided to move to New Zealand for a fresh start and opportunity to start a herbology business. She is slightly annoyed that her siblings have decided to tag along. Despite this, she is going forward with her professional ventures. This means the house they are sharing is covered from floor-to-ceiling in magical plants.

Olivia is usually at odds with her younger sister, Lydia, due to their conflicting personalities and strengths. Olivia is closest to her younger brother, Seth, and on good terms with Slade, his twin. She has a limited friend circle, as she would honestly spend more time outside with plants and magical creatures than other wizards and witches.


Biography
Olivia had a turbulent early childhood, with the disappearance and later death of her father, Jaken Styx, at the age of two. Estrella changed the last name of her four children to Drage (her maiden name) to simplify their lives and avoid future conflict with Jaken's family. Olivia and her siblings were moved back and forth between the United States, Norway, and New Zealand. Olivia started her education at Hogwarts New Zealand and was sorted into Gryffindor House. During Olivia's second year, Estrella decided to provide a stable home for her family once and for all.

The Drages moved back to the United States and Olivia was enrolled at Ilvermorny. Olivia was sorted into Pukwudgie. She was an abysmal student and barely met the requirements to graduate, which was a point of contention between Olivia and her mother. However, she did have a special fondness for herbology and magical creatures courses. Olivia was rambunctious and playful when she was younger; she has grown to become more mellow and introverted. However, she still has a temper, which shows up quickly when other people try to control her or push her around.

2051 to 2052
Olivia moves to Obsidian Harbour after Estrella's death. She is slightly annoyed when her siblings follow her, since she wants a fresh start. Olivia starts to build her new pop-up business. She fills up her house and yard with magical plants and frustrates her siblings, especially Lydia. Eventually, Olivia acquires an enchanted greenhouse, which collapses into a hand case. Olivia names her business "Olivia's Greenhouse"- her main base is Obsidian Harbour, but she is happy that the greenhouse is mobile so she can set up shop anywhere. She meets Chalcedony Michaels, an expert gardener; after he helps tend to her sick asphodel and chat, they become friends.
Julie, Olivia's stepmother, passes away in Canada. Olivia and her siblings attend the funeral. Slade invites along an unexpected attendee: Kalif Styx, their supposedly adoptive grandfather who is none too pleased to be invited to a Muggle funeral. Olivia finds out for the first time about the notebook her mother gave to Lydia, which is enchanted to share a different message and secret with each of them. Olivia finds out later that she, as the eldest child, was supposed to receive the notebook first. However, this is learned all too late at a tense meeting with Kalif Styx. The four Drage siblings, now into their late 20s, learn that Kalif Styx and Nicolette Hensel are their biological grandparents, their father Jaken was tortured and maimed for being an Auror, and that Kalif, Tristan, and their great-grandfather Valcan all have unsavory pasts as Dark Arts practitioners. Angry and hurt, Olivia insists that she does not want anything to do with the Styx family- she promises to be a thorn in Kalif's side.
