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.

Quiberon, France A quaint seaside resort, Quiberon is well-known for its production of tinned sardines. It is also famous for being the site of the Battle of Quiberon Bay during World War II and the pillar at the Cross of Lorraine commemorates the lives of the French Resistance fighters who died there. It's also the home of the Quiberon Quafflepunchers, a Quidditch team. Frequent winners of the French league, they are famous for their flamboyant playing style and their shocking pink robes.
Deveraux Castle is the home of the Swanson family in France. The castle is actually quite large and roomy and you'll find magic in every room you enter. The Deveraux family has lived there for generations. It speaks of riches and treasures handed down through the generations from Charlemagne.
Beauxbatons Academy of Magic Thought to be situated somewhere in the Pyrenees, visitors speak of the breath-taking beauty of a chateau surrounded by formal gardens and lawns created out of the mountainous landscape by magic. Beauxbatons Academy has a preponderance of French students, though Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Luxembourgians and Belgians also attend in large numbers (both Beauxbatons and Durmstrang have a larger studentship than Hogwarts). It is said that the stunning castle and grounds of this prestigious school were part-funded by alchemist gold, for Nicolas and Perenelle Flamel met at Beauxbatons in their youth, and a magnificent fountain in the middle of the school’s park, believed to have healing and beautifying properties, is named for 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.

I was born in France. My name is Rebel Lee Swanson. I'm the oldest of ten children. I descend from the original inhabitants of Agawam and Charlemagne. Both of them remarkable to me and mean a whole lot. I have arrived in Agawam and met my soulmate. More than I was expecting! I'm never leaving here, and I am transferring to MACUSA where I can still be a curse-breaker if needed with my expertise. Otherwise my heart is telling me to follow in my father's family's footsteps and become a Warrior of the Mountain to work alongside my soulmate!

I am loyal, reliable, and honest. Because of this, I can be a good friend. I am also easygoing and very outgoing toward others. I like to be protective of my younger siblings. I have found hobbies in photography and nature hikes. I found it hard to lie in front of others. This is a weakness, as I always tell the truth no matter what it is. I suppose that can be a good thing. I also enjoy a challenge. I suppose that comes with the territory of being an auror. As we are always thinking two steps ahead of the enemy. I also enjoy solving puzzles. The more complicated, the better. I try to think quickly on my feet and have been deemed clever because of that. I am stubborn and also a bit self-critical. I’m always my worst critic and try to be a perfectionist. Sometimes this is an area that drives my friends and family crazy. I want to make sure that I get things right the first time. I am also a bit stubborn, maybe a little too much. I am trying to go one path. I can’t be easily swayed, to change my mind. Some call me vindictive. If you double-cross me or my siblings, I will not forgive you. It’s usually one and done. Because of this, I can be seen as a little self-centered and tend to think of myself. I am working on getting better at this.

He is really a simple guy. He loves Quidditch. He loves to play Quidditch. He wants to find his dream girl. He wants to spend the rest of his life with his dream girl. Anything else doesn't matter as much to him. He's generally fun to be around as he enjoys a good time just like pretty much anyone else. He also has noticed that he gets distracted a bit easier nowadays than he has in the past. He loves music and knows how to play a few instruments. The violin is his favorite just because it takes a certain skill and finesse to play it beautifully. It doesn't take much to get him angry if you know how to push his buttons. However if you're clearly just trying to get a rise out of him, good luck. He tends to let it just roll off his back and walk away.

I am a loyal, reliable, and independent girl. I love to write music and play on instruments like the guitar, piano, and clarinet. They are my favorite musical instruments. While music is more of a hobby, I knew I had to find a better way to use my talents, and became a healer. I work at one of the hospitals in France in my time. I am honest and also love nature, I love animals as well. My favorite creatures came from the Care for Magical Creatures class. Which was taught at my school. Some days I would love a good book to read in wintertime and curl up by the fire, with my cat and a cup of tea. I am also a bit stubborn, and a perfectionist towards anything. I can do or work on it. My music has to be just right when I work on it. And my classes, I had to redo my homework a couple of times, when I was in school. This personality trait probably drove my friends crazy, but I believe it ran in the family. When I’m not busy with music or reading, I love to go outside and play with my friends and family. I love to go on nature hikes along the trails. While I am stubborn, I stick to a plan and do not say no or change my mind that easily. It will take awhile for me to change my plan or move to something else.
