Kellen Jacob Mormont is both tall and thin for his age. His gangly appearance earned him the nickname “Lurch” from the bullies at school. His pale skin and dark hair only served to amplify his unusual looks. He has his mother’s wide set grey-blue eyes and full lips. His strong, squared jaw, large ears and slightly bulbous nose are gifts from his father.

He doesn’t put much thought into his appearance. His hair is usually messy as its wavy texture often makes it tedious to tame. His wardrobe largely consists of hand me downs from one of the many thrift shops near his home. He prefers baggy jeans, hoodies and t-shirts that have pop culture references on them and a good pair on converse shoes.

Kellen is a shy, quiet boy who prefers the company of books to people. This isn’t to say that he is unfriendly; he has simply had his share of taunting and bullying and is slow to trust. He’s a bit of a worrier and has bouts of mild anxiety. When someone is patient enough with him though, Kellen can be very loyal and a good friend.

He’d discovered a while back that the library is a good place to hide from people who want to beat you up, and has found solace there ever since. Initially he’d enjoyed losing himself in stories of knights, super heroes, and adventures in far off places. The more he read, the more he realized that he loved learning. Kellen is bright for his age and prides himself on his ability to pick things up quickly.

Kellen Jacob Mormont was born on June 20th to his mother Mariella Mormont and Gregory Scott. His conception was the result of a one night stand, and while he didn’t meet his father until he was 5, he always knew his mother’s love. Mariella was a kind witch with a gift for potion making and healing. She struggled with the pregnancy at first, and though being a single mother presented many challenges, she always wanted her son.

Mariella and her son lived in a small apartment over their family’s apothecary in the Hawthorne district in Portland Oregon. The shop was relatively successful, and catered to the needs of wizards and muggles alike. The people of Portland have a reputation for loving all things natural and holistic, so it hasn’t been hard for the Mormonts to do business. Balancing motherhood and a business wasn’t easy, so Mariella often relied on her parents and neighbors to help care for her young son.

As soon as he could read, Kellen would often help his mother in the shop, sorting herbs and stocking shelves. He much preferred to spend time at the comic shop next door though or at the coffee shop on the corner where the owner, Mrs. Bailey, would give him hot chocolate and a cookie for free. Kellen grew up with a sense of belonging and acceptance—until he met his father.

Greg Scott worked as an optometrist in Salem and often visited Portland for work. A chance meeting brought Mariella into his life initially, and maybe it was fate that brought them back together nearly six years later. They ran into eachother at the city’s public market one Saturday, and it was clear that the young boy accompanying Mariella belonged to him as well. Kellen was wet from playing in a fountain, his pants were too short for him, and his t-shirt was stained and torn. Greg was polite to them, but was filled with a sense of dread and responsibility. How was he going to explain this to his wife? He couldn’t walk away from his own child after all.

Mariella had never asked Gregory for anything, and yet a few months later, she found herself in a custody battle for the son she’d raised alone. It was a long, ugly battle that ended with Gregory getting every other holiday and custody of Kellen over the summer. Mariella wasn’t pleased, and Kellen even less so. Kellen was plucked from his home over the summer and placed in a household with people he didn’t know, away from everything he ever knew.

Greg was married to a woman named Marcie, and together they had two other children. Adam was a year older than Kellen, and Olivia who was three. Marcie and her children were accepting at first, but they couldn’t help notice that something was a little off with Kellen. It wasn’t his fault. He was only 5 and had to keep half of his world a secret from them.

Things only got worse as Kellen got older and started school. His first few years were fine; he’d even made a friend or two. When 4th grade rolled around though, everything changed. Greg filed for even more custody, thinking a father’s influence would make his son more normal, and won. School in Salem was different, the people were different, and soon Kellen found himself the target of a group of bullies—including his step brother. He found solace in books, and a stray cat that liked to sit outside his bedroom window at night.

His visits to his mother’s never seemed to last very long, and Mariella noticed the changes in her son and the bruises. She tried to speak with Greg about the bullying, but he insisted it was only boys being boys, and that Kellen needed to toughen up. She appealed the custody ruling, the only thing she could legally do without using magic, and was denied. The only thing she could do was wait and hope that Kellen received his Sonora letter.

The boy had grown up knowing about the magic academy, and that when he was of age, he’d be enrolled. He never liked the idea of leaving his mother, but he was anxious for a reason to escape from his new family. On his 11th birthday, he got the letter. The only thing standing in his way was his father. Greg refused to send his son to private school, particularly when he felt like he needed his guidance. Kellen was forced to start the next year of muggle school, and was devastated. He understood how important his magical education was, but couldn’t very well talk about it with his family. He became more and more of an outcast.

Finally, one evening, when Kellen returned home with a black eye and Adam with a bloody lip, Greg decided he’d had enough. The story was flipped so that Adam appeared to be the victim. The only time Kellen stood up for himself and he’s the one who got punished. Greg decided it was time for this weird child to go somewhere where he wouldn’t be a threat to his family, and agreed to let him go to Ilvermorny-albeit a bit late.


Kellen doesn’t have a wide array of skills or hobbies. His mother used to sing him songs when he was little, so he has a decent voice, but is too shy to share it with people. He grew up next to a comic book store, and has loved the stories since he could read. His only real marketable skill is finding potion ingredients. Having grown up in an apothecary, his mother would often tell him about the various items, and sometimes they would go foraging together. He loved to watch his mother make her various potions and tinctures, so some of that must have rubbed off on him.

His first year at school was pretty uneventful, and full of makeup assignments having missed the first part of the year. He was diligent with his studies, however, and was able to catch up with the help of his new (and only) friend Farrah Welsh. Second year started off a little rough, with an incident with his half brother that resulted in a broken nose for the older boy, and a months worth of being grounded for Kellen. His anger issues encouraged Kellen to try Tai-chi and meditation to calm his "inner Hulk." However, and encounter early in the year made his emotions bubble over, and now, more than ever, he's determined to improve himself.
