1199: Lena was born in a small town to the east of Zurich.
1207: She was found as an apprentice in the Alpine Tribunal, by a member of House Bonisagus who was associated with the Lyceum.
1210: After receiving a period of education into Latin and Greek by the covenfolk of his mentor, Lena had her arts opened and became an apprentice.
1216: Lena had her gift badly damaged during the backlash of a perdo vim experiment she was assisting her mentor with - enough to lose her ability to learn and manifest the arts. Her innate supernatural skills into alchemy survived the backlash. Suffice it to say, the relationship suffered, and Lena wasn't too willing to serve as his lab assistant anymore.
1217: Her mentor lost interest in her since she refused to work with him in the lab. A fellow member of House Bonisagus, of Trianoma lineage, possibly slightly guilt-driven to see a member of her House leave her to fend for herself after accidentally destroying her gift helped her get in contact with the redcaps to see who in the order who find her skills valuable. This is how Lena came into contact with Anastasia and Guida.
1218: Lena entered the university of Bologna on referral from Guida. Anastasia's covenant provided her with some funds during her scholarship studies, on the notion that an educated lab assistant would prove useful.
1226: Lena completed the eight years of university and mandatory teaching period, earning her rights as a Magister in Artibus.
1224-1228: During the two years of her mandatory regency, Lena spent her free time receiving private tuition into the secrets of Mythic Alchemy by the reknowned alchemist previously met by Anastasia on her journey to Italy. Anastasia's covenant wouldn't pay the excessive fees charged by the alchemist for the privilege of private tuition - and Lena still owes Favors for the teaching.
