Lysander Stratford was born on January 13, 1971 in Canterbury, England and attended Hogwarts from 1982-1989, where he was a member of Slytherin House. He married the love of his life, Chyler Thomason on July 24, 1991. They moved to Hogsmeade in November 1995 and opened Twice Told Tales, a used bookstore, with their best friend Julian Valentine.
Lysander and Julian helped deliver Harry Potter to Lord Voldemort, after his kidnapping by a possessed Jet Obsidian in 1996.
Chyler died unexpected on New Year's Eve 1996, while giving premature birth to Lysander's baby. Unable to cope with the loss of both wife and child, Lysander left Hogsmeade in February 1997 and moved to a Caribbean island, where he spent his days alone and in mourning.
In May 1998, Lysander returned to Hogsmeade. Later that year, he learned about the Human Trade, the black market sale of human body parts. Intrigued by a book on the subject, Lysander kidnapped a Muggle man and subjected him to torture until he died. Lysander eventually killed four other individuals, this time wizards.
Lysander fathered a child out of wedlock named Charlotte and gained full custody of her after the disappearance of her mother Aralyn Fox. Charlotte was born December 31, 1999 on the third annivesary of Chyler's death. Three years later, Aralyn took a renewed interest in her daughter. When Lysander discovered a plot against him, he obliviated everyone on Aralyn's side of the family so that they no longer remembered Charlotte.
In June 2003, Lysander met Chyler's second cousin, Astrid Thomason. Astrid shared a remarkable resemblance with Chyler. Lysander, who never thought he could love again, was instantly smitten. They began dating in November and moved in together the following year.
Lysander had two run-ins with master criminal Khalid Adallah. The first was in 2001, when Hermione Granger hired Lysander to find a book. Lysander was nearly killed in a warehouse that went up in flames in West Irian Jaya, where he'd gone to find the book. The second meeting happened in 2004, when Khalid sought his revenge on Lysander for thwarting his plans for three years earlier. Khalid accidentally killed himself with Lysander's wand, which had gotten damaged during the kidnapping.
It was during Lysander's second absence that Astrid traveled to Argentina to confront Aralyn about his disappearance. Her interference, which was done out of the good of her heart, inevitably reintroduced the Fox family into Lysander's life. Faced with desperation to keep Aralyn from learning the truth about Charlotte, Lysander juggled the lies that Chyler was still alive, that she was the mother of Charlotte, and that he and Astrid were just friends.
Eventually, it all fell apart. Astrid gave herself away, causing Lysander to break up with her. Aralyn discovered Chyler's tombstone in the cemetery in Hogsmeade and privately sought out the identity of Charlotte's mother, knowing that it could not have been Chyler. After learning the shocking truth that she was Charlotte's mother, she confided in Kristos, who confronted Lysander and insisted he allow Charlotte to live with Aralyn or face the consequences. Lysander lived in agony, knowing that his daughter was with Aralyn and Kristos and that any plan to get her back would no doubt put him in Azkaban.
Luckily, Adriana Fairchild stepped in while in search of the Sword of Slytherin, which was in the possession of Aralyn and Kristos. The Death Eaters raided their home, killed Kristos, and modified Aralyn's memories so that she believed she'd killed her brother. Aralyn went to Azkaban, and Charlotte was returned to Lysander. Shortly thereafter, Lysander and Adriana conceived a child. Their son's name is Dylan.
Lysander wanted to conceal the fact that Dylan's mother was the wizarding world's most wanted criminal and convinced Astrid, who had returned to Hogsmeade with a husband named Axel Ek, to pretend to be Dylan's mother. Astrid's marriage ended after it was revealed that Lysander is actually the biological father of Astrid's son August. Astrid and August currently live with Lysander and Dylan in Hogsmeade.
