Donatelli Family Diviner
The Donatelli family started out in California - Los Angeles to be specific. In the 19 aughts, Angelo and his wife Carina were focused on raising their perfect, magical little children. And, of course, on amassing great wealth. While they weren't supposed to interact with No-Majs, according to MACUSA laws, it's very possible that Angelo decided he didn't care when it came time for his eldest daughter to marry. It was certainly not a love match, but he was surprised when she made a risky suggestion: That they merge with the Los Angeles Crime Family, a mafia group that would go on to last even through the next millennium. But as the truth about the Donatellis got out, regarding the whole magic thing, they needed to distance themselves. Nico's eldest sister, Claudia (the one who'd married in), stayed and gave up magic apart from the rogue wandless magic she could do in dire situations. And the rest of them moved to New York on Nico's advice.
He had, after discovering himself at school, become rather good at making predictions. Divination was kind of his thing, and the numbers just spoke to him. So when he came to the conclusion that the New York Stock Market was the thing to invest in - particularly before the huge crash he felt certain was coming up - they decided that Manhattan was ideal. They could send people into MACUSA, Nico could keep an eye on the money, and they could find a few low-key side jobs for family members to get involved in.
But let's back track a bit, shall we? Nico isn't the youngest child, but he may as well be. There were five of them: Claudia, Anthony, Nico, and the twins, Maria and Juana. Claudia married herself off, so to speak, and the twins? They never really liked to do as they were told, and it wasn't all that surprising when they were spectacularly disowned. And that basically made Nico his parents' baby all over again. Anthony and Nico were all their parents really had left, and none of them were eager for the boys to get married. They needed to establish themselves instead. Nico had always been a very well-behaved child, if a little quiet. But he was only quiet because he was more interested in listening. And it's a good thing he was, because eavesdropping led him to all sorts of minor victories, and even a couple of major ones when it came to helping his family increase their wealth and find new avenues for business. That said, he's still confident and strong-willed, despite how he might seem. His family knows just how clever he can be when it comes to appearing non-intrusive while people give themselves away.
In New York, he feels relatively at home. It's a big city, like LA, but more business-oriented as opposed to Hollywood-y. Somehow, he finds that he prefers it that way. So he has settled in and now spends his days figuratively (and literally, sometimes) crunching numbers and keeping an eye on his family's money as an accountant might. Only difference, really, is that his conclusions about their value has a hell of a lot more to do with magic than with money.
