Backstory:

Bianca was born on a fairly wealthy family in the city of Chicago. Ever since she was small, she was very sensitive to the supernatural, although she never understood it very well. More often than not, she would tell her parents and friends about signs and omens she had but no one would take her seriously, no matter how many times they proved to be true, it was just a coincidence as far as everyone knew. Her father worked as a hitman for the mob, though she never learned about this until she was 13yo. One day, when she was 9, she had a very lively nightmare  and woke up sure that something really bad would happen that day, and indeed it did. Her father was shot dead by a rival family. About an year later, her mother married a man who abused her for many years. At age of 14, she fled her home and started living on the streets. She became a prostitute, drug dealer, pickpocket and whatever else she had to do to stay alive shortly after, having no other options to survive. What little free time she decided to dedicate herself to understanding her special ability and quickly found herself fascinated by the subject.

During one night, she ended up saving one of her clients’ life thanks to her supernatural gift. Unlike everyone else, the man believed her the first time she told him to be very careful about crossing the streets because she had seen a sign. Her prediction proved to be correct and the man was clearly impressed, offering her a small ring and leaving. Some years later, when she was 16, she was able to see another sign, but misinterpreted it, leading her to be an eye witness of a murder committed by a very important political figure in her city. Not by coincidence, she started to see omens a lot more frequent than before, and she quickly figured out she had been made a target. She ran away in fear and eventually stumbled on the same ‘client’ she had saved his life when she was 14. Somehow, he already knew about all of her troubles and had an offer she couldn’t refuse: A way out of the city, to a place nobody would ever find her.

Tired of living in constant paranoia and fear, she promptly accepted his proposal and moved to his place for proper training, an abandoned house far from the city. At the same time he was kind and caring, he also forced her through brutal and often bizarre tasks. It took a long time for her to adapt, but when she did, she fully embraced his ways, completely abandoning her old ways and becoming almost fanatically devoted to the goddess Earth, whom she was taught was a living and conscious entity, and was no longer afraid like she used to be.. After 3 years under his tutelage, she could not awake her avatar, instead becoming a hedge wizard, specialized in cultivating and taking care of plants and making powerful concoctions with them, as well as perceiving the mystic energies of the world, unseeable by the common people. Feeling there was little more she could learn by living with him, she decided to move on. Her mentor, knowing about this, arranged for her to move to the chantry Steelhaven in Boston, where she would be safe from any past troubles,welcome by friendly and familiar faces and walk with her own legs.

She is pretty good you get 3 freebie points for her background.

I would just prefer a few small changes if we are going to go with the idea that she was the apprentice of the same man that taught Beatrice until he decided he could not Awaken her and gave her to a Verbena Hedge Wizard to train. Now this teacher, Amadeus might hire a prostitute, though it would not be a common occurance, however he would have taken her to his Chantry to train her and not an abandoned Cabin, and she would have needed training from a Hedge Wizard mentor as well, but other than these small details she is good to go, welcome to the game, you get three extra freebie points for the background.

The name of her first mentor would then be Amadeus Nazza, so if we say he trained her for one and a half year and then gave her to a Verbena Hedge Wizard at the same Chantry then everything would fit together.

You can decide if you want me to make the Hedge Wizard mentor as a character or if you want to flash her out. Now we do not need to go with her having a connection to Beatrice, she could have been trained by another Verbena and your background would work just also if you prefer that, but since we discussed that I am just mentioning it.
