Abigail

Head of Averno Online & Website

Abigail is an 18 year old college student that possesses 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 cooking and baking up a storm. In addition, Abigail manages Averno Online, so all things Averno that are self released, as well as running  the website. 

 

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!

Elodie Prigent

Social Media

Elodie is a 17 year old queer just trying their best. Since joining the Averno team in November 2019, they have headed many Averno social media accounts, helped develop and run multiple online events, and dabbled in various other secret projects. Their favorite experience so far was being a Project Manager for the Find Averno ARG, for which they also handled Kennedy's social media. They are so thankful to Morgan for welcoming them into Averno and to the team for being some of their best friends. They are grateful to be a part of a community that brings so much representation, especially to young queer people. You can find them on Instagram @ elodie.prigent.

Emi

Social Media

Emi is a Panamanian high school student and Averno fan account owner. Having joined the team in September of 2020, she's worked on social media, planning of events, and most notably the FindAverno ARG as both a mod and a social media plant. Being a part of Averno is a dream come true to her, and so is being able to keep growing what is considered to be a home for so many people. She is always willing to help out with miscellaneous tasks on the team as well as using her platform in the community to keep the Averno fandom as strong as it can be.

Leo Kate

Influencer

Leo Kate, otherwise known as L, is a 15 year old influencer, writer, and record breaker. If you ever saw Leo in public you’d think of how loud and outgoing they are, as they crack countless jokes and do their best to make the ones around them smile. You will also come to find Leo is a chaotic person with very bad luck. In August 2020, they broke their school record for "most messed up, inaccurate class schedule." How did they manage to sign up for three different 4th periods in both semesters you may ask? They have no clue. They also have a reoccurring trend of being second which eventually they’d love to break. In 2019, they got second best in the state for the technology and for the recycled arts portion of a nationwide competition. They were second in the state for their club soccer team, and they also became the second biological female to ever play high school football in North Carolina. While they aren’t conquering a second place title they love to write, perform, make videos, and play sports. In May 2020, they stumbled upon a TikToker named "Auggie Greenwood" who was advertising a class called FBC. Being the impulsive person they are, they immediately applied. They got in and started to bond with the other FBC members, where they were introduced to a universe called "Averno." They immediately clicked with everyone in Averno and showed off their talents and presence. They finally got lucky and was accepted into the concept team. To Leo, being on the concept team has made them feel like first place.
