Lair Academy: School of Man and Beast

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Tenchi-Roku, Sep 3, 2012.

  1. Centuries ago, the world of magic and monsters came to light. Over the years, mankind had learned to adapt to living in the world with new threats. Basically jail, or war. In the 5th century, the legends of mythical creatures came to life; making their mark in the world. Man didn't know whether it was willed by God, or a curse from the Devil himself. Either way, mankind retaliated.

    First came Unicorns, blessed creatures of beautiful finesse. Then golems, phoenix, griffins, hydra, and chimera. Further down the years approached Minotaur, centaur, demons, and hundreds of other monsters, which man accused to be cursed beings. Early in the ages, Kingdoms found these to threats and initiated The Purging. Some of mankind found comfort by making a partnership called a Pact; a bond that binds two hearts into one, granting the human magic and hidden abilities between them and the beast. This lead to witch craft, necromancy, and evil intent. Influencing the creation of Templars. Kingdoms were destroyed, people were slaughtered.

    Those who were in league with the beasts were brought into slavery, as well as their beasts. One in particular was born into slavery, and was given a chance like no other.

    Elizabeth Hawke.

    Elizabeth was born a slave, raised a slave, but ignited as a Revolutionary. In her age as a young adult, she had been ordered to make a delivery into the Darklands; a part of the world plagued by death, fire, and emptiness. Exhausted and weak, she gave out at the rim of an erupting volcano, sure to pass away. As she faded into death's grip, she was rescued by a phoenix, the symbol of restoration. Grateful for her savior, she promised to stand stronger and be heard. But with what power? She was merely a human girl. The phoenix offered her a pact, giving her enough power to free slaves and rescue their beasts kin. In a month's time, she returned to the Kingdom and ignited the place a blaze in holy fire.

    Slaves were freed and so were thei beasts, but some still remained against these people. As centuries passed, Elizabeth mastered the abilities of her Phoenix, Angellus. While finding those among her people to match her teachings.

    These three all held significant ability that assisted into our beloved future of today. All were granted eternal youth, but had something special about them. All carried magic of a specific construction: Destruction, Restoration, and Illusion. With further practice and study, more magic came to light. With more magic, came more people tuned to use it. With her circle of friends and people, she constructed a school just for people like her. People with a pact beast. The School is now hidden in modern days, using a magical barrier only opened by the gate keeper. But be warned, no one knows what it looks like.

    It has been said Elizabeth and Angellus became Goddesses and ascended to the Heavens, while her three chosen stayed to lead the school. Professor Garret Carver in Restorative Magic and Alchemy, Ai Shugumii for weapons training and Illusion Magic, and Rhone with Destruction Magic and Beast Mount Training. They oversee the teachers of the school as instructors, pros who stay around to show you how it's done.

    So don't be afraid, come find us. If you can't, we'll find you.

    Welcome to Lair Academy.

    Quick Update: Yes, you may have a dragon.

    Fellowship Academy Changed?

    Do to some feedback, I've decided to change up a few parts of the setting. For one, there are no longer schools world-wide; just one. The school is hidden by a magical barrier put up by Elizabeth to guard it from those apposed to it. It's time has been set back to 2014, just a good idea.

    Name: Aroin (Aro - ee - n ) Belgruff

    Age: 17
    Gender: female
    Appearance:(You) anime_girl80[1].jpg

    Place of Birth:(Make it up, but use an actual place) Whidbey, Washington

    Grade: Junior (11th)

    Date of Birth: (You know the drill) October 18, 1997.

    Magic Type:(One for now, you'll be given more as the story progresses) Illusion

    Classes:(What will you be taking?) English 4, Alchemy, conjuration, Hallucination Experiments, P.E, and Enchanting Sword Mentorship.

    Year of enrollment:(When did you get here?) 2013

    Reason for enrolling:(What do you plan to receive from us?) Aroin enrolled to be around people who are like her, people who won't shun her or turn her away for what she can do. She wants a place where she can be accepted, and understood, a safe place for Zalix to be able to enter the open area, able to stretch his legs and his wings, without people seeing him and trying to shoot him out of the sky. But, she also hopes to better hone her skills, and talents, and become one with her beast so that when she is on her own, she will be able to handle herself.

    Bio: Aroin was born in a little town called Whidbey, which is actually one of the larger islands of the nine islands located just near Washington, and the area always seems to be a clash of lush, and dull colors. With constant rain, or fog, Whidbey comes across looking almost mythical, and when Aroin found herself glad to be in such a mystical place. At a young age Aroin would find herself venturing out into the dense forests around her little farmhouse, which was about two and a half miles from the actual town. Of course, such a distance made it difficult for Aroin to make friends and venture out of her way to connect with people, so instead she lost her head in the clouds, always stuck daydreaming, or imagining amazing new worlds and creatures. One fateful day when Aroin was out collecting damp sticks and branches to make a little fort, she stumbled across a magnificent creature that looked almost half horse and half eagle. The beast was aggressive, and Aroin had retained her distance, afraid of the powers of such an animal, until she notice the odd angle at which one of its wings was protruding. It took Aroin nearly three weeks to gain the creatures trust, and a week more to actually bandage the poor Hippogriff's wing up so it could heal. From that day the Hippogriff trusted Aroin with it's life, and she with hers, and when the time came that Zalix's wing was finally healed, he stayed, to watch over the young girl who had saved her. Aroin learned to ride Zalix, using an old worn, leather saddle she had found in the barn near her house, and soon she even told her mother. This news came as no surprise to the woman, who explained about the bonding process, and the tales of Elizabeth Hawke, and her companions. Aroin had heard the stories before, and was relieved that her mother believed her, but more so that her mother wasn't angry at her for making a pact with the Hippogriff. A few years later Aroin's mother fell ill, before she slowly passed away, leaving her only daughter an orphan, with no one in the world but Zalix. The young girl searched out a safe haven, and stumbled across Lair Academy, waisting no time to reply.

    (I can fix this too if I made any mistakes.... =P)

    Classes are assessed in the first post V.I.A. The plotting post!!!!!
  10. Interested. VERY interested.

    One question, can I make a creature that is a humanoid. Such as an exquisite creature, not like a neko or whatever. But a creature that has morphed skin and such. Completely capable of making a pact with a human.
  11. You mean something like Minotaur and such?
  12. I can have a Pegasus, yeah? They classify as beasts, right?
  13. Indeed they do.
  14. Name: Junko Touta
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Appearance: [​IMG]
    Pact Beast: Pegasus, named 'Hikaru'. (Pegasus with Black Coat)
    Place of Birth: Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.
    Grade: 11th
    Date of Birth: August 23rd 1997
    Magic Type: Destruction
    Classes: Alchemy, Destruction History (how many do we need?)
    Year of enrollment: 2012
    Reason for enrolling: Needed an accepting and educational environment. Also trying to come out of an anti-social shell and make friends like herself. Hoping for the same for Hikaru, who was usually hidden away and never allowed to come out until Junko enrolled at the school.
    Bio: Junko was born into the prestigious Touta family, a well respected family in nearly all of Japan. Her father was a well-known hero of the Japanese military and her mother a well-known politician. Unfortunately for them, their daughter fell short of their expectations, growing up to become an outcast in school who would rather spend her time in her room as opposed to socializing with kids in school. On vacation to a resort, she wandered off and found Hikaru, quickly forming a strong bond with the mythical creature.

    (Sorry for the short bio, I always find myself at a loss when it comes to writing about someone's past. I hope everything's alright.)
  15. ((Yeah what year does this take place, so I can fix some stuff))
  16. It's in the spoiler. XD
  17. No like. Not a creature that really has been seen before. Possibly I could come up with a mix of different species formed into a humanoid.
