    Welcome to Madam Flamel's Reform Academy for Wayward Girls. The headmistress is a reputable English lady with real experience straightening young girls with behavioral deviations. There are 7 girls presently but we have two openings which will be filled today for a grand total of 9 girls. The girls are tutored in arithmetic, English, French, History, Geography. Also, each girl is screened for possible skills for marriage or a trade. At all times, the girls are held to a strict behavioral standard with real consequences. We do encourage corporal punishment and isolation. We aren't afraid to diagnose mental illness...

    The Academy is a three story brick building of lavish design. Each girl's room is well furnished and decorated, yet locked from the outside only.

    Headmistress Flamel: A tall thin woman. With pretty, yet sharp features, she can seem otherworldly and frightening. She wears the same style of black dress daily, and high bun. She is a woman of few words, high intensity, and short temper.
    Miss Margot: A resident nun in training, just starting her novitiate. She is meek, easily startled, and overwhelmingly kind.
    Lady Andrepont: A french teacher, speaks very little english. Eccentric and funny, she is lusciously large and pretty.

    Girls currently enrolled:
    Portia Wilde- orphan enrolled by distant aunt
    Moranda Bowle- daughter of mayor of New York
    Ada Franz- ? doesn't talk much, german decent?
