The original inhabitants of the area around Mount Greylock were the Mohican people, an Algonquin-speaking tribe active in parts of New York, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Members of the Mohican tribe fought in the Stockbridge Militia, the first group of Native Americans to align with American revolutionary forces, and they defended the nearby town of Stockbridge from insurgents during Shays’ Rebellion on August 29, 1786. After the war, however, the Mohicans were pushed off their land in Massachusetts and eventually forced to resettle in Wisconsin with members of Lenape tribes.

Claires Divine Secrets is the business that Claire Swanson Rodgers opened before she was married. Where her kids went as babies until they started school. The store is the magical version of VS. So have fun shopping!
Ancestors The Rodgers/Swanson union joined the Native American ancestry of the area along with the founders of Ilvermorny school. Facts that their children and grandchildren are proud of carrying on the traditions of their ancestors.
Warriors of The Mountain are what some of the Swanson Descendants are. Not all of them though. A few have struck out on their own never to return. The newest generation of Rodger's family are still mainly attending Ilvermorny school except for the two eldest of Carrie Beth's and Derrick's oldest daughter Reina who is managing Clair's store in Agawam.
Rodger's Estate is the home of the Rodger's family. It was built by the Rodger's family a couple of hundred years ago. Both of the Rodger boys live there with their families. During the summer Carrie Beth's family and Grady's family join them.
The Gathering Place is a central location where families of Agawam gather as their ancestors did for town celebrations, to birthdays to anything and everything. Kids gather there to play and are protected by the magical barriers from the Outside world.
Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is where the families attended school from the time they were 11 till they graduated their 7th Year at the age of 17.
Agawam, Massachusetts was settled by Native Americans. Primarily the Mohicans which migrated here when their territories were taken over. Hidden by Magic, and nestled way back in the Valley, between the mountains were magical Native Americans that built the beautiful town of Agawam.
Mount Greylock is home to Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Down below the Mountain you will find Agawam and Greylock Grove.
The nearest somewhat large town, Greylock Grove, is but a few miles from Agawam, and where you can find Crescent Alley and Full Moon Alley. There is also a Magical College called Aupaumet and Pucakan Heath Center for the Magical community.
Some of the Rodgerss have been taken and some haven't.

She is a really nice person, or so she thinks she is. She may come across as acting as if she's better than others, but she's not and she knows she's not. She just thinks everyone deserves the best in their lives. She strives to have the best things in her life, but she's not afraid to work for it. She loves her family and she knows if she needs anything, she can always just ask her parents, but she tries to do her own thing at the same time. She spends her days working at Claire's Divine Secrets and she absolutely loves it because she knows at the end of the day, she helps others feel beautiful and more confident about themselves.

My name is Robin Linn Rodgers I love to write as well as read. I've written a few stories, but I've never shown them to anyone. Too embarrassed to. I'd probably just get laughed at. I did join the Dueling Team and enjoy it. I'm actually pretty good to my surprise. I've won quite a few duels already. Course though when I tried telling my parents they just ignored me as usual. If it were Reina or Roux they'd be hanging on every word they said. It's just not fair!

Isaac Rodgers is a stubborn man and maybe a bit strong-willed, but no one ever said he had a bad bone in his body. He can be described a bit like a bull. The animal gets angry and takes a while to calm down when this does happen. Isaac is kind, behind all that deep skin, and can be a bit insecure as he is always striving to be the best. He is sometimes in competition with his brother, as it is fun, and to try to improve themselves. Sometimes Isaac forgets to eat and has to be reminded. This was bad when he was studying for his classes, as he can’t wait to graduate.

Ian Richard Rodgers is my name. I have two older brothers that are twins and sometimes they scare me. I just try to stay hidden from them. Thank god they are graduating this year. I'm not a shy person. I'm pretty outgoing, laid back and like to have fun. I'm always watching over my shoulder for my brothers though. You never know when they will pop up. Oh and I descend from the founders of Ilvermorny through my dad.

I was born in Agawam, Massachusetts's. I'm descended on my mothers side from the Mohican Indians that were the original inhabitants of this land. To this day more than one family here in Agawam is descended from them. On my father's side I descend from the founders of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Today I am the mother of four wonderful children Emerson, Travis, Jasmine and Chad. They are my life and I don't know what I would do without them. I am one of the co-headmistresses here at Ilvermorny, and I love my job. Well except for dealing with unruly student's parents. I am also a Manitou which is a folklore of the Native American's or is it? That's a secret no one will ever know the truth to.

She says, "I'm fun. I'm pretty. I'm me!" Seriously, she's a people person. She loves people! She thinks she's pretty cool to be around because she tries to stay AWAY from any drama. She's only 16 but she thinks she's already too old for any of that. Even though her mom's one of the headmistresses, she's not afraid to do what she wants and when she wants. That little fact sure doesn't stop her from being pretty damn cool, in her opinion! She may sound conceited or self-centered, but she's really not. She loves to have fun and she can play a joke like the best of them!

Well I'm Chad Michael Linn. My mom is one of the headmistresses and we descend through her from the founders of the school. Which is kinda cool when you think about it. I'm the youngest of four. I have two older brothers that are twins and are eleven years older than me, and my sister is just a year older than me. I know the twins have a different father and mom was a seventh year when she had them, but I have no clue who their dad is.

I was that oops baby, my name is Astoria Linn Summers. My parents had tried for years after my brother Blake who was 27 when they had me. They were forty-five when they had me and in the process of getting divorced. My father remarried and had more kids with his wife who wanted nothing to do with me. Mom is off jet setting the world. So Blake and Grady got custody of me when I was two and happily raised me. I never knew this till I was already attending Ilvermorny so I had worried for nothing about one of my parents trying to take me from Blake and Grady.
