Oskar von Borke was born to Gerhard von Borke, a descendant of the Pure-Blood Noble House of Borke, and Anastasia Zaklinaneva, daughter of the famous witch Zoya Zaklinaneva, former headmistress of the Koldovstoretz School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and wizard Viktor Virakov, former Russian Minister for Magic.

As Oskar is a member of a very ancient and respected pure-blood family, he had quite a lavish childhood; the family was reputed to be among the wealthiest in the wizarding world, having accumulated a fortune since the early Middle Ages.

Oskar's mother, though Russian, had attended Hogwarts when she was a child. Even though her mother was Koldovstoretz's Headmistress at the time, she thought it best that Ana should attend Hogwarts, as Zoya didn't want to favour her daughter over any other student at her school (Ana was later sorted into Ravenclaw house). Anastasia became a world-renowned Transfigurationist, featuring frequently in Transfiguration Today and other publications, and is conisdered to be the most knowledgable expert on human Transformations. She is also an Animagus and takes the form of an Eagle Owl when transformed.

Oskar's father, Gerhard, studied magic at the Durmstrang Institute, as did his father and grandfather before him. He had served as Deputy Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards before returning to his Arithmancy research. Today he teaches Arithmancy and Advanced Arithmancy at Durmstrang.

When Oskar came of age, his parents argued to which school he ought to be sent. Gerhard wanted him to attend Durmstrang, whereas Anantasia urged him to go to Hogwarts. In the end, they compromised and an application was sent to the British Ministry of Magic, requesting a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Owing to his family's innumerable connections and prestige, the application had been approved, and Oskar had indeed started attending Hogwarts. He was sorted into Ravenclaw house like his mother before him, and excelled in Transfiguration and Potions in particular.

Oskar's sister, Barbara, and brother, Dionysus, were also sorted into Ravenclaw; the former became top of the school in Arithmancy - authoring several papers on the subject with the help of her father before even finishing school - while the latter thrived as a Beater on the Ravenclaw Quidditch Team.

Oskar has written a book called International Magical Co-operation with the help of his parents, which became widely known and a bestseller in German-speaking countries, and was translated into multiple languages.
