Aurelius Daedalus Veiento Iohannes was born on 18 July 1990 at St. Joseph–Aarhusium National Hospital in Aarhusium, Latium to Aurelius Daedalus and Joanna Arianita.

His mother attended the University of Aarhusium and has been a primary school teacher for the Aarhusium School Board since 1986. His parents originate from rural county Anio in central Latium and are first cousins. Daedalus has two younger sisters: Maria and Honoria.

Daedalus attended Saint Nicolas Primary School, a state school in Aarhusium for his primary schooling. At the age of 12, he was enrolled at St. Faustus Academy, an independent–private school in nearby Ostia Aterni, which he attended until his commencement in 2007. After taking a gap year where he traveled to Fabria, Sydalon, and Yisrael, Daedaluls enrolled at the University of Aarhusium for university. He participated in the school's extended degree law program. Throughout his schooling, Daedalus worked at nearby law firms and interned for the Populares legal division just before his graduation in 2012.
