A/N: This is just a bio kind of page. To give you guys bit of background and so you hopefully won't be lost. I would like to thank Harry Potter lexicon and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for giving me the information needed for the beasts. As you can see, I added some changes to some of the beasts.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and if I had come up with more that my measly characters I would not be writing this. Hey measly . . . that gives me an idea for a character name. How about Weasley? Oh wait. Never mind. I'm NOT JK Rowling!
