overview rules cast list updates 1 The Beginning (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The Beginning (open) The Beginning (close) Before this school was created there was a mage, or as the humans say a witch. Well, not just one but two. Sisters with the fate to lead their people to a brighter world after being basked in darkness and death. A prophet had spoken of it their entire lives... what she forgot to mention that only one sister would save their people... the other would be the reason why Sahep was drowned. Sahep was in a good point in life, bright with promise of new life... when war broke out with the neighboring ogres that had bid their time within the dark and dangerous forests that lay at the edge of Sahep. Always watching, waiting until the moment they were able to overthrow everyone. Not that ogres were smart enough to over throw a high standing realm such at Sahep. No... someone had betrayed Sahep and their goddess, Sealiah. Gathered all the dark entities to his kingdom. Monsters and beasts that parents used to scare their kids straight when they were acting up. The sisters had a life full of work and love but when war came to the lands of Sahep for the first time in hundreds of years, they were forced to watch as their mother was slaughtered along with their entire village. They were the only survivors and while one of them promised to get stronger in order to protect those she cared for... the other resorted to other measures. Years later when the eldest sister, Anise, was 23 and the youngest, Gwenyth, was 20... things suddenly stopped. They realized that they both wanted two different things. Anise wan't to protect the remaining number of her people while Gwenyth wished for vengeance. The sisters split from there and went their own way. Anise learned both light, neutral and dark spells; training herself until she collapsed. Gwenyth learned everything she could about dark magic while hunting down the one who had done the damage to her life as a 13 year old girl. It took about 10 years before Gwenyth had gotten revenge and beheaded the warrior who had done wrong by her... after Anise got word of what her sister had done, Gwenyth had already disappeared. Hidden from all magic, eyes and ears. The people of Sahep believed that Gwenyth was the sister meant to protect them but Anise knew better. Something was wrong with her sister. 50 years later, those within Sahep believed things were going to get brighter and that their goddess Sealiah could protect them. Sadly enough gods weren't allowed to interfere with the lives of the mortals. No one had been able to foresee the future when Gwenyth slammed a heavy fist of death and darkness upon Sahep. Her revenge wasn't over. Sahep would be destroyed and Anise couldn't do a damn thing about it. Not when the only option was to kill the one woman that had her back since day one. Gwenyth the dark caster, so they called her, only needed 3 months before she ran everyone out of Sahep. Destroying everything on the lands and letting beasts from hell roam the place that had previously been her home. Only one instruction lay within their minds... slaughter anyone who's breathing. Anise managed to save hundreds of their people, forcing them to adapt to the world called earth. Where there were more mortals... the difference was that they are blind to what's truly going on. Gwenyth is trying to find out how Anise had managed to open a portal to their neighboring realm. 100 years on earth and Anise had already began to prepare the future generation. Built a school to help house, train and discipline the younger generation on the history of Sahep. Now 256 years after the beginning of Sahep's fall, Gwen has managed to find little holes in a rip of time that led to earth. Fortunately its only big enough to fit small groups of creatures of the night. Professionally trained monsters in the art of assassination. Gwen knows Anise is the one who had helped everyone so as some sort of punishment, she wants to destroy Earth. Just like she had done within Sahep. Welcome to Academy of the Gifted, a home that has been around for over 256 years ago. My name is Essylt Anise Saith, headmistress of this enchanting place. Now... you may be wondering why you're receiving this letter. I'm sure you know what you're capable of, a very special student found you and believes you can be a very great asset to this world. Earth... its a mighty place. Filled with all sorts of creatures; either mortal or immortal. Some in plain sight and others hiding within the shadows.

Not any normal training but harshly tested to your breaking point both physically, emotionally and mentally. It is my job to shape you into the fighter that Sahep is looking for.

Meaning they have control over 2 elements instead. They are naturally fast but aren't physically strong. Naturally heightened senses (especially to other magic, i.e energy) Available elements: fire, earth, air, water and lightning/electricity. Warriors- 3 (at least 2 males) An extremely physical class. Though they may not have magic, warriors are physically strong. Perfect senses that can sense an enemy, dark energy or the smell of danger. Are trained in strategy and extremely harsh training. Rogue- 3 (now its: 2) There are different groups for rogue: Thief, scout (spy) and assassin They sometimes have a psychic ability, not all do though. Other then that, no magic for them. Extremely fast, flexible, agile. Assassins are trained so hard, its practically physical abuse. Which is why children are only allowed when they are at the age of 6, with parent permission. Clerics- 3 (now its: 3) There are different groups for clerics: healers, charmers (priest/ess), witch doctor and high priest(ess). Healers have a very strong bond to life which gives them the ability to heal, some better then others. Charmers use runes that they draw on their own skin, then holding onto their target in order to help boost a certain area for them. i.e. strength, speed, durability etc. Charmers are said to have been fed a star as a baby. Witch Doctors are healers as well but they're more spiritual and pray to Kraem for strong healing powers. Doing this will taint a witch doctor's spirit each time they use it, which is why they must take 2 purity baths a week. Water blessed by Kraem himself. High priest(ess) are extremely rare and only one has been around, each replaced by a new high priest(ess) if they die. Only witch doctors can turn into a high priest(ess). Oracle is taken!! Rangers- 3 (now its: 1) Naturally agile, fast, sneaky and known for their accuracy. Each Ranger in training will be taught how to make an arrow that fit them best. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Each of you is tested before you are given a class. The first test is magic. A mage will come in, check to see if your energy carries any sort of natural energy. Second is testing you physically then on your skills as a marksman. The last test is checking to see how deep your connection with the Goddess Sealiah. After being put in the class that fits you there will be three separate teams, each given their own assignments. These assignments are missions to go take out a group of monsters that the academy's watchmen have tracked down. Each time a group goes out, there must be at least one mentor going with them. If things go bad the teacher is there to prevent it as well as grade them on how they deal with certain situations.

Does what she's supposed to silently and if spoken to, she'll respond solemnly. Val is always calm and rarely gets scared but there are moments when Valeda feels vulnerable and that's when she's alone and there's nothing but silence. When that happens she's usually found in the training room trying to get her thoughts back on a normal track. One that wouldn't effect her day. Background- Valeda was born in a family that was surrounded with killers. Each of them had been born and raised as assassins. With the knowledge that her name, Valeda, means brave she strives to be just that. An intelligent, quick witted, resourceful and dangerous young lady who sees the world in black and gray. Like many other assassins, she follows the Goddess Scery instead of M'rror. As the eldest of the Nunez family, she was taught how to handle a knife when she could hold a spoon properly, a short sword when she could stand and a long sword at the age of 5 years old. Then Val was sent to Academy of the Gifted to train as a full fledged assassin. They pushed to her limits, Valeda is a cold blooded killer, just like her parents. People willing to do the dirty work for the people of Sahep. Only the strong last. As an assassin, Valeda had her first assignment when she was 12 years old. She's to graduate when she turns 18 years old.

Luckily for her all she needs is her photographic memory. Ancient spells are dangerous and she teaches each mage in the school only one spell each. For emergencies only. Scrying- Essylt is extremely gifted in finding people on a map as long as she has something that belongs or belonged to them. Anti-magic- Over the past hundred years of her life, Essylt had one of her men steal a spell from Gwenyth's book. One that caused magic to unharm Essylt. This doesn't count for physical damage though. Drinking her blood will give temporary resistance to magic.

Name- Bozidar Daivik Closer to death, I say! Age- 348 Gender- Male Come child, let us call upon the gods.

He's the only one that knows about Headmistress's secret, Bozi is truly a loyal servant to Essylt. Bozidar is a very wise person that might seem childish and a bit of a prankster, he truly cares for the outcome of the students. He makes sure to bond with each of the students and helps Essylt in guiding the many students. Though he might not be there, somehow Bozidar finds a way to be somewhere at the right place and time. Abilities: Healing- Bozidar is old and now has amazing healing abilities, he is said to have been blessed greatly by Kraem.
