Jethro had a pretty ordinary childhood and had a close bond with both his siblings, being rather proud to be the big brother to them. He grew up in a loving family, one that was close and had no secrets between any of them. His father was a little more strict than his mother and would be the one to push his children to do their best in whatever they wished to do. Despite this he was a loving man and was proud of all three of the siblings, hoping that they would all grow up to do something amazing.
When he turned 11, Jethro took up fencing and found that he had a natural talent for it. It became the way he got rid of his anger and stress, an escape where he could let it all go and just be himself. He was soon top of the class and was often seen teaching the other students and correcting their stances when needed. Both his parents were proud and was happy to keep his fencing lessons active.
His Hogwarts years weren't that exciting, his favourite subject definitely being Astronomy and the effects the moon has on their magic. He worked his way through school and got pretty good grades in all his subjects, impressing his parents and becoming the favourite child of the family. This started off the rivalry between the siblings, each wanting to be the top child. When he looked back on the situation now he wished he could change what happened and keep their sibling bond tight.
Leaving Hogwarts was bittersweet and he often missed the school as he traveled the world for a year before going to the university of Beauxbatons to study Astronomy. He met a lot of great people in France and longed to stay there but had heard of a job being offered in Scotland to become an astronomer. Not being able to pass up the opportunity he finished up his education and moved to Scotland.
Finally settling in Scotland he took the job and became an astronomer. Studying the stars was something he always enjoyed doing and this wasn't anything different. While his parents had wanted him to go into a more 'traditional' job in the ministry he stuck with the astronomy path and helped advance the astrological knowledge within the wizarding world.
His love for the school and for Astronomy made his decision to apply for the astronomy teaching job much easier when it became available. Being able to do what he loved and passing on the knowledge to the next generation was something he would always be proud of, whether it was just interesting to one or two students.
During his second year teaching he recieved the unfortunate news that his brother and his brothers wife had been killed, leaving behind their young daughter Anna. As godfather to this child Jethro was the next person to take over as caregiver, which meant leaving his job to care for the three year old. The lost hit Jethro hard but having to look after Anna grounded him, keeping him sane, and even brought him and his sister closer together. Finally being able to juggle looking after the child he has now returned to Hogwarts to teach Astronomy, his sister looking after Anna during the time he is teaching. He now sees Anna on weekends and during holidays.
