Alejandra came from an influential witch family, and married into the Calderon line when she fell in love with Duke Mateo Calderon. Also from a royal family, she carried herself with dignity and grace, pushing herself into her social life since she and her husband lacked the power level to be a truly powerful witch. The Calderon seat on the high council remained empty because of this.
Alejandra had two children to continue their legacy, Diego, and Leticia.
When Diego discovered his magical soulmate was a witch of no standing, and no fortune, Alejandra and Mateo unsuccessfully tried to persuade their son to produce official heirs with a woman worthy of his title, while keeping his soulmate on the side. Both knew the choice was the wrong one to make, but they were afraid Diego would abandon them, leaving their Council seat perpetually empty. They knew Diego planned to hand their estate over to Beatrix, which would bring their legacy to an end.
Diego rejected their proposal, and in a fit of rage, Mateo disinherited his son and turned him out of the house. Diego later had a daughter, Jasmine, with his soulmate. When Jasmine was 8 years old, Diego was killed by an unknown assailant.
Leticia had a daughter named Violet, and Alejandra believed their problems were over, but Leticia had no interest in being their heir after what they did to Diego. She left them behind. Alejandra held hope she could convince Leticia to at least give their legacy to her daughter, but at age 13, Violet disappeared and was presumed dead.
In an empty castle with their Council seat untaken, Mateo and Alejandra regretted every choice they'd made that costed them their children. They made a choice to offer their inheritance to Jasmine when she came of age, but when they heard she'd lost her magic at 15, they didn't want to cause her further pain by reminding her of the life she couldn't have anymore.
