Agundio Atti-Morales is the son of two immigrants. On the one side of his family, he has his mother Raquél, who was born in Havana before her family escaped from Cuba. On the other side, there is his father Gianluca, who is an Italian who came from Italy to be with Raquél; they met while Raquél was studying abroad in Rome as an art historian. His father was a mechanical engineer, and was picked up in the medical engineering business Raquél’s father owned. He thus was able to provide quite well for the family, and Agundio lived a rather comfortable life with his older sister Maria Georgina and his adopted brother Pietro.
At the CCD outlet he was sent to, he became the victim of species-based bullying due to his nature as a hybrid. It got to the point that he tried to confess for being filthy as a person for being born as a hybrid during the mandatory confession. Father Lutz, the priest at that church, offered words of comfort to Agundio. It was thus that Father Lutz began a paternal relationship with Agundio. This improved Agundio's self-esteem immensely as a young boy, not to mention that it began to stir a strong sense of faith within Agundio.
Because of this, Agundio became a profoundly devout Catholic, with the belief that his God was all-loving of every person on Earth. As his self-esteem improved and his faith became apparent, his parents began to turn around. Eventually, they allowed him to enroll at a program at a JCC despite reservations from Gianluca, and it was there that the avian began to develop his game.
It was a game that would be developed throughout his younger years. He quickly became a well-known player, known both for a very kind disposition, and for a playstyle that was deceptively offensive. He showed a natural talent for the sport. He showed great dedication to the sport, and was team captain of his high school team in his senior year, when he carried his high school's team to the state championship. Many foresaw a future in the FBA for him.
Thus, it surprised all but his immediate family when he made his intentions known that he wished to be a priest. He had become a devout Roman Catholic by the time he entered his last year of high school, thanks to the nurturing hand of Father Lutz. His faith had only grown, which differentiated him from his siblings; this fact made his father proud, though others wondered if Agundio was not cheating himself.
Of course, Agundio never let go of the sport he loved: he was able to go to Boston International University thanks to a basketball scholarship, and it was through the sport he loved so much that he was accepted to Boston Interspecies University's Theology program. While there, he made a splash on the BIU team, eventually rising to the starting line and bringing his team to contention in the 2015 FCAA tournament. Because of this, some scouts recommended that Agundio submit his name for the 2015 draft.
As a Theology student, Agundio came to realize that American spirituality was not in a great place. As the year went on, he began to wonder if his faith would not be better channeled elsewhere, these doubts assailing him as he played. Father Lutz encouraged Agundio to go to the FBA. Thus, Agundio surprised many of his old teammates and his family when he announced his plans to submit his name into the 2015 Draft. He hoped that his presence as a devout Roman Catholic could help prove to others in doubt that faith could still play an important part in a more secular world, and he further hoped to set an example for the devoutly religious on how to behave in the modern world.
