✯ [ PAST ] ✯

Little is known about Celestia's childhood, due to her constantly lying, making it hard to perceive what is and is not real about her own family. She described her father as being of French nobility and her mother being a member of a German family of musicians, however, Makoto Naegi presumed this to be false. She stated that she was given the name 'Celestia Ludenberg' by her parents however this is later discovered to be a lie, so it is likely that her parents' heritage is also a falsehood. However, Makoto does believe that she came from the capital of Tochigi Prefecture, Utsunomiya where she came to love it's famous food, gyoza, despite stating it to be 'vulgar' and 'malodorous', which could possibly insinuate her hatred of the unsophisticated lifestyle she was born into in Japan.
While growing up, Celestia had a cat named Grand Bois Chéri Ludenberg who she loved dearly and made sure to spoil and pamper. She was eventually able to get him to enjoy her favorite food, gyoza, and this then became his own favorite, showing the close bond between the two.

Sometime during her childhood, she began aspiring to be like European royalty, such as wearing Lolita clothing, using an old English accent - and changing her name to a fake one that had connotations of European royalty. Her other mannerisms and strict, spoiled nature emphasize this. She seems to have lived a life of fake stories surrounding her past due to the nature of her profession as a gambler, making her known to lie and conceal her past, which is likely why she is dubbed Queen of Lies. Her goal in life throughout her childhood was to live in a big fancy European castle with handsome male servants dressed as vampires to become her own personal secret service. She wanted to live in an idealistic world based off of aesthetic decadence, which is an unusual aspiration given the contemporary society in which she was born into. It is unknown why she yearns to follow traditional Victorian morality, but she appears to hate her real self, as she dislikes ordinary and common things, and changing her real name, which was most likely given to her by her parents, is a testament to her dislike of her true identity.
With her dream to acquire a European Castle, she felt it was only made possible to achieve it through winning large sums of money via gambling. Notable occasions where Celestia put her life on the line for large sums of money in order to acquire her dream was when playing Russian roulette mahjong in the basement of a large mansion, her opponents being an old man who was a billionaire and a silver-haired boy who possessed a considerable amount of luck himself. She defeated them both at once and the crowd that had been invited to watch were in shock. She stated this to be one of her "fonder memories". Celestia's desire to gamble was one of the many enjoyments during her early life due to the risks of success for claiming her dream. She was renowned for managing to rob any who challenged her of all their money. Due to her given nature and deception, she was given the title “Queen of Liars”.

Celestia's previous high school is unknown before she was scouted by Hope's Peak Academy as part of the Class 78th, under the title the Ultimate Gambler by Koichi Kizakura after she made a name for herself in the underground gambling circuit. The reason for her accepting the offer of being educated at Hope's Peak Academy was due to being able to have unlimited success for the rest of her life, which would have sped up the process of achieving her dream, which had always been her life goal.

In photos found by Makoto, Celestia was shown playfully attacking Hifumi Yamada, while seemingly quite aggravated. This was just one of her many moments during High School at Hope's Peak Academy.
