Quinlynn was raised by her single mother, Lavender. Lavender, was a fired botanist, who had hydrokinesis. She was fired from her work for doing harmful experiments on the plants. The two lived in an average, two-story, house. Quinlynn never knew her father, and she wasn't sure that her mother knew either. They lived together, but it was always unhappy, and disruptive. Her mother could barely afford Quinlynn, and even thought of sometimes putting her up for adoption, when she was little. Lavender would also throw random tantrums, which would sometimes result in injury.
Lavender started to pick up a new job, as a waitress. While working, Quinlynn would try to find something to do, but in the end, she would just fall to sleep. When Lavender had enough money, she bought a music player, to listen to music. Quinlynn finally had something to do. She would dance to the music constantly. Quinlynn started to enjoy being alone.
One day, her mother came home in tears. Apparently, she had been fired (again), but this time she had scratches, bruises, and breaks, to go with her note. Quinlynn asked what happened, and her mother didn't respond. So, Quinlynn left her mother, downstairs.
The next morning, Lavender didn't come upstairs to wake up Quinlynn, like she did on weekends. Wondering where she was, Quinlynn walked downstairs to find her mother dead. The police came, and dubbed it as suicide from a drug overdose. Quinlynn was traumatized, and was sent into foster care.
Most of the time, she would end up with nice, decent, SwiftWings who really wanted a child, and she appreciated them, but they would never be Lavender. One foster father, saw Quinlynn dancing, and he signed her up for dance lessons. Quinlynn was in love with dancing. Everywhere she went, she danced. This Swiftwing, whose name was Tempest, truly loved Quinlynn, and decided to adopt her. After many years of dancing, Quinlynn eventually was sent to a school solely for dance. Of course this school was far away, near the SeaWing Summer Palace, so she boards there. She has been featured in a few ballets at many theaters.
