From an early age, too much was expected of the young witch. She was forced into training for the position of Guardian of Time from the moment she could sit up straight, let alone walk. As such, the young girl never knew the luxury of a true childhood.
When she finally reached the age of five, she was then enlisted to become a guardian in training. For the next ten years she under went strict history and spell lessons with her fellow trainees. All of them very much aware that only one could be chosen.
The Guardian of Time was a person who would oversee all of fate and history, but could never interfere. It is also important to note that the position is only held by one person for ten years, before it is passed on to the next candidate.
Candidates can be selected from anyone who had finished their training between the ages of fifteen to twenty. Thus those whom one would compete against one another, could never be chosen after their new guardian had been selected.
