History

General History:
Though they were poor, Tiana’s parents Eudora and James loved her very much. James was a cook, who taught Tiana the importance of a good meal, while her mother Eudora was a nanny for the LeBouffe family, who brought Tiana along. Tiana and Charolette LaBouffe became best friends, though they shared a huge difference. While Charolette believed that a wish on a star would take care of everything, Tiana knew hard work was key. Tiana’s hard work began when she and Eudora lost James in World War I. Tiana knew she had to open the restaurant she and her father dreamed of. She picked up a job as a waitress, picking up another when she turned 18. The jobs put her at odds with being a normal girl her age. When Charolette LaBouffe hosted a Mardi Gras/engagement party for her and the visiting Prince Naveen of Maldonia, Tiana served her famous beignets. The men who owned the property she was so close to buying were at the party and told her no they would not sell it to her after all. In a moment of desperation, Tiana wished on a star. Prince Naveen, who had been turned into a frog by Dr. Facilier who was also known was The Shadow Man, showed up and convinced Tiana to kiss him. The kiss didn’t turn Naveen human but turned Tiana into a frog and the two escaped Charolette’s dog Stella by running into the swamp. The two, Tiana and Naveen, hated each other but soon found that they needed each other to escape from the dangers of the swamp such as gators, not including their new friend Louis, and frog hunters. Louis and their new firefly friend Ray led them to Mama Odie, the good voodoo queen. Tiana and Naveen had slowly started to fall in love but Mama Odie revealed that if they wanted to be human again, Naveen needed to kiss Charolette LeBouff. Mama Odie, however, also told them to look deep within themselves to make sure that this was what they really wanted. Tiana and Naveen shared a dinner prepared by the once spoiled Naveen, who planned to propose to Tiana. After dinner on the boat back to New Orleans, Tiana pointed out the place where she planned on opening her restaurant. Naveen decided against proposing in favor of helping Tiana achieve her dream. Once back in New Orleans, Dr. Facilier had his shadows kidnap frog Naveen. Tiana saw the man Facilier had turned into Naveen on a float marrying Charolette and believed Naveen had turned on her, which broke her heart. Ray told her the truth and Tiana ran off to find Facilier, who offered Tiana her dream restaurant if she just let it all go.
As she was debating the choice, Chernabog’s curse hit and turned Tiana into Dia Macedonia.
Edith and James Macedonia raised Dia in New Orleans before deciding to move their daughter to Yensidia. James was a soldier who went to war in Iraq and was killed in action. Dia started working at a restaurant in town as a waitress to pay for her mother to live comfortably. After high school graduation, Dia went to college on the savings her father left her to get a degree in culinary arts with a minor in business. She opened a jazz bar/restaurant called Tiana’s Palace. While looking for cookbooks in Belle’s, she crossed paths with her object: a Cajun cookbook. Her memories are restored but she keeps it hidden.
