Likes: (3 minimum)
 -  Bagels; specifically New York bagels. New York bagels have a certain something to them that he hasn’t been able to find in other places. One of the hardest things about the move from New York to the UK was having to say goodbye to freshly made bagels.
 - Old black and white movies; He likes the classic vibe that comes from movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s. He also enjoys thinking about what colours are actually present in the film, since there is no real way to tell.
 - Helping people; As someone who spent a large part of his childhood in a state of helplessness, Avalon finds joy in making sure that no-one he knows will ever have to feel so alone. He likes letting people know that they always have a friend.
- Morning runs with Burnie
- Music; Avalon's music taste ranges from bluegrass to electronic dance music. He appreciates the way that music can take over both the musician and the listener at the same time.
- Video Games; He. Is. A. Teenage. Boy. (Though he would like me to add that he does not condone real life violence, but he has come to terms with the fact that digital characters are not alive to begin with so in a way he is not actually killing someone because you cannot kill someone who is not alive)
- Superheroes; He has no preference as to what franchise the hero is from. He just enjoys the idea of superheroes as a whole.
- Sports; After spending the better half of his life feeling too weak to even leave his home, Avalon took the first chance he was given to run outside and play in the sun. In the U.S, he and his fathers would play soccer in the park every Sunday afternoon. In the U.K, it became football.
- Honey; He likes how honey adds a tiny bit of sweetness into his tea without making him sick to his stomach.
- Dinosaurs; He finds it fascinating how an entire species could exist and die off all at once, and yet every being afterward could still have a similar genetic makeup.
- Reading; Mostly biographies, memoirs, and science reports.
- Soduku; It's an easy and entertaining time-killer.
- Quidditch; Once he began school at Ilvermorny, Avalon realised a great passion, and a great talent, for the game of Quidditch. At Ilvermorny, he played as a Keeper, but he is not against testing out other positions.
- “Vintage” phones; Avalon knows how to use an iphone, but he simply chooses not to. He likes the sound that his Motorola Razr makes when he flips it open to make a call. He enjoys the feeling of pressing his fingers against buttons to send a message instead of tapping them against glass.
- The colour blue; When he’d go to the hospital to see Gwen the last few times, there was this one nurse who would always look at the young boy with a smile and tell him that this would be the lowest point of his life. This sounded harsh, but it was not meant that way. When Avalon’s mother was finally discovered to be ill, it had been this nurse who’d reported her to the authorities. His eyes were blue.



Dislikes: (3 minimum)
 - Pizza bagels; Why would someone corrupt a bagel like that?
 - Bullies; he does not understand why someone would want to hurt someone else in order to inflate their own ego. He hates to see people fall down just to raise someone else up.
 - Dr.Who; He doesn't really know why. His friend, Louise showed it to him, but he couldn't get into it.
- Dishonesty; Avalon likes to be able to trust people and it really hurts him when people stab him in the back. "I can't help you if you won't tell you why you're hurting"
- Alpacas; It was a trip to a farm gone bad. He doesn't like to talk about it.
- May 23rd; Gwen's birthday
- Halloween; Avalon has never celebrated Halloween. He doesn't like how Halloween romanticises terrifying and hurting people for entertainment.
- Sweets; After not being allowed sugar for 8 years, even eating just a chocolate frog makes Avalon sick to his stomach.
- Space; He is terrified by the uncertainty of something so vast.
- Zoos, aquariums, etc; Animals don't deserve to be kept as spectacle.
- Getting sick; Be it even just the common cold, being sick brings back memories of a really dark period in time. It makes him feel small and helpless and it reminds him of everything that he wants to forget.
- Change; Avalon hates change. He finds it hard to say goodbye to everything he knows just to start the process of knowing things all over again somewhere else. Vacations are the worst in this regards. He does not want to visit somewhere. He wants to put down roots.
- Being underwater; Even though he knows that he is safe, Avalon can never shake off the feeling of drowning whilst underwater.
- Writing; He finds it hard to get his feelings out on paper. It's easier just to have a conversation.
- Meat; Avalon is vegetarian, which means that he does not eat meat. He hates the idea of killing animals just to eat them. Eat kiwis, not kiwis.
- The internet; Avalon craves human interraction. He does not understand why someone would want to watch videos of kittens without actually feeling the cat's fur or hear a person's story without seeing the movement of their lips. It seems ingenuine.

Strengths: (3 minimum)
 - Making friends; Avalon knows how to create a connection with a person from the first hello. He knows how to gain and keep someone's trust and he is the best friend that anyone could ask for.
 - Potions; He's good at knowing exactly how much of what ingredient to use in order to make a potion work.
 - Arithmancy
- Quidditch
- Making people smile; Avalon's energy is infectious. He's skilled in the art of knowing how to make someone's day brighter.
- Crossword puzzles
- Problem solving

Weaknesses: (3 minimum)
 - DADA; It's really hard for Avalon to put others in danger, even if knows that there is no way he could actually hurt them.
 - Get's too invested in people; Avalon gives himself the sole job of making sure that everyone around him is always okay. He reads too much into things when someone seems upset or hurt, even if they tell them that they're fine.
 - Gamestop; He. Is. A. Teenage. Boy.
- Riddles; He will waste entire days trying to solve a riddle and he will not give up unless he gets it right. It's problematic, to say the least.
- Forest trails; Avalon could spend eons wandering through the woods.
- Ringtones; He wastes way too much money on having a different tone for every contact.
- Dancing; Two words. Chicken dance.
- Has a hard time defending himself; He finds it difficult to go against other people in order to save himself. It seems unfair.

- Expressive
- Reliable
- Good at keeping secrets

Negative traits: (3 minimum)
 -  Idealistic

Avalon was born into the care of Lucia Anne Levithan. He and his older sister were homeschooled, making it so that Avalon only really interracted with two people consistently. The occasional relative would pop in to say hello and send a Christmas card but for the majourity of his younger years, the boy knew very little of the world outside of his home. This was okay because he didn't know enough to be aware of the fact that it wasn't okay.

Avalon worshiped his older sister, Gwen. From birth almost, she'd been diagnosed with what appeared to be a cancer of the lungs. She often had a hard time walking down the hallway without passing out. But she was still always up for an adventure. On a good day, she'd paint stars on the ceiling and tell Avalon about every constellation. She'd tell him that she wanted to be rebirthed as a star. Little Avalon would smile, not completely comprehending what she was saying.

When Avalon was 6, Gwen and their mother went on one of their weekly trips to the doctor's office. This week, Gwen did not come home. According to their mother, she lived at the hospital now. They'd be able to take better care of her there. He could visit her whenever he wanted to.

She didn't live there long. He visited twice. Their better care was not better enough.

As a way to comfort her son after the loss of his sister, his mother would hold tea parties for the two of them and all of his stuffed animals. The tea tasted off, but then again he did not really know what tea was supposed to taste like. A few months after Gwen passed, Avalon fainted on a trip up the stairs. The doctors tried to figure out what was wrong with him. How was it that two children from the same family could be so ill when there was no prior record of illness? It didn't make sense.

When Avalon was 8, the nice men in suits came to his house to bring him on a trip. He'd be introduced to a nice young couple a few states away who seemed warmer than his mother had. They told him that nothing would ever hurt him again. A few months later, Avalon's tests showed that he was in perfect health. His mother was locked away.

Avalon enrolled in Ilvermorny when he was 11, much to the amazement of his parents. He loved everything about the learning environment and about school as a whole. The young boy joined the Quidditch team in his second year, finding that he had a real talent for sports. In his 5th year, one of his fathers explained that he'd been offered a job in Scottland and Avalon would begin school at Hogwarts.

Lucia and Elijah met at a grocery store. For Lucia, it was love and first sight and for Elijah, it was something that he would never speak of for as long as he lived. Elijah wanted to believe that Lucia was normal, that there was nothing wrong with her. But there was and he could not handle that fact. He stayed with her for Guineviere and he did not leave her until four years later, when she bore a son named Avalon. Elijah knew that Gwen wasn't sick. He knew that he'd helped create a healthy and beautiful young girl. And he knew that Lucia had been the reason for her demise. He did not want to hear coughing in the night and know that it did not belong to one of his children, but to two. So he left.

Once he'd heard about Gwen's passing, Elijah was livid. He kept close tabs on Avalon through a member of the hospital staff in order to make sure that he was alright. When Lucia began bringing her son into the E.R presenting similar symptoms to Gwen's, Elijah made his move. His law firm pounced on the case and they sent Lucia away.

But Elijah no longer had custody of his son and he had to live with that. As far as Avalon was to know, his birth father never existed.

(Lucia has Munchausen by proxy.
