Elodie Prigent

Social Media

Elodie (she/her) is a 17 year old confused lesbian who's just trying her best. Since joining the Averno team in November 2019, she has managed many different social media accounts, as well as joining the press team, modding the street team, being a DCD teaching assistant, and helping out with various events and projects that are mostly classified. She feels so connected to Averno thanks to representation and the community that it brings, especially as it is a light to so many young queer people. Also she loves you. Muah.

Tessa Barcelo

Head of Professional Development

Jokingly called Mini-Morgan by the Averno team, Tessa is an award-winning composer, writer, singer, actress, and activist. She is thrilled to be working on Averno as Morgan’s extra brain and right hand witch. When she’s not helping manage the social media or running around trying to keep track of all the Averno projects, Tessa records songs out of her basement in northeastern Massachusetts, and her music can be found on most streaming platforms. She has previously worked with Morgan as a teaching assistant for Future Broadway Creators, a month-long class teaching young writers how to write musicals. A junior in high school, Tessa plans to go to college for songwriting and then move to New York to write musicals.

Ella Villani

Mod & Social Media

Ella is a 15 1/2 year old icon- well, not icon but for some reason the kids on the discord server worship her, probably because she’s a mod. Ella is from the US and does theater and makeup in her free time (ask me about the seven deadly sins I dare you). What she does on the team? Who knows. Social media? Sure! Modding? Yeah basically. Art? Goose! Her socials are @ellab1357 on Instagram and TikTok!


Mod, Social Media, & Worldbuilding

bee (lowercase intentional) is a struggling high school student with chronic fatigue syndrome and suspected ehlers-danlos syndrome. When not sleeping or lying on the couch with a massive ice pack, xey are scheming of new cryptids to create for Averno or added political intrigue for xyr own novel,always heavily influenced by xyr life as a chronically ill, autistic, nonbinary person. bee does mainly social media/marketing related work and dips their toes into worldbuilding also. Xyr job might be best described as misc. bee is so excited and honoured to be helping out with Averno and xey know xey will find lasting friendships with the other members of the concept team.



Mod & Social Media

Sam is 107 year old* high school student, best known as a mod on the Discord server. When she’s not yelling with/at the kids on the server, she’s punching the Wikia into submission, answering asks on Tumblr, posting on the Snapchat, event planning, world building, and stumbling her way through both the visual and performing arts.


Mod & Website

Abigail (the mod) is in fact not Greenwood and her musical talent only lies in appreciation. Instead she has abilities in the mysterious entity known as math. So much so that she is studying biomedical engineering to create medical devices, like prosthetics and hearing aids, for people with disabilities. When she isn't busy with school she can often be found hanging out in her dorm common room, reading, or online Modding the Discord server. In addition, Abigail works on the Averno website and press team to help promote and explain Averno.
