Candace grew up with the ultimate privileged lifestyle, to one of the most powerful and influential witch families to exist. The daughter of the High Chancellor of the witch council, she had everything she could ever want.
In her early teenage years, she met and made friends with Jaz and her friend, Hilary, and the two joined her influential friend group, that also had Christi Pomace and Alyce Pendragon. In order to be friends with Candace, she expected all of them to follow her rules, which included no talking to losers, and no dating without her permission.
All five girls were heirs to prominent families. Jaz's family was mostly a secret, but Candace knew, and tried to get in with her just in case Jaz ever took her father's title.
Candace was insanely jealous of Jaz. Jaz grew up in a loving home, she was very talented as a witch, and people liked her kindness. People were only Candace's friends to be popular, and no one really liked her. When Jaz failed to specialize at 15, her magic died, and Candace seized the opportunity. She said horrible things to her, that Jaz was worthless now, and no one would ever want her. Jaz left Highborn, and Candace resumed being the queen bee of school.
A few years later, Alec Claus transferred to Highborn, and Candace instantly began a relationship with him, for the status, not because she liked him very much. Their relationship was open, and both had other romantic liaisons.
Alec eventually broke up with Candace because he was starting to want more than what they had. He wanted a real relationship and had ceased to care about dating for popularity. Candace was livid, and hexed him to jizz himself every time he saw her for a week.
