We all thought the world was but simple place, or rather, much simpler than what we've come to know it as. But we couldn't have been more wrong.


One year ago today, in San Francisco California, an epidemic broke out and plagued a handful of it's occupants. It was a dark day that people till this day cringe as it is brought up in conversation, though most will avoid it entirely. For half of the city's population was brutally murdered or nearly mutilated, by creatures of we thought were only in movies and fairy tales. People haunted of the images they believed to be werewolves, vampires, demons. Standing over bodies and tearing through their flesh, or drinking their blood. These creatures went on their murderous rampage throughout the city, then left it littered with bodies and disappeared into the night.

That was when it all started, people started to live in fear from that day on, others in so much disbelief they believed them all mental, half of them being sent to mental institutions believing they were traumatized from the murders. But we would soon come to learn that those things were true, and yet we also had it all wrong.

There had never been an outbreak, instead, a carefully staged plan carried out by the supernatural. The supernatural have wandered this earth and others, for many years, many hiding in plain sight, while others hid underground or off the grid in fears of being discovered. But then, there were those that operated and practiced behind closed doors, doing things we didn't think we needed to worry about.

But the world would never have been ready, till now we don't know the reason they decided to show themselves, to now make themselves known. They say no one is really ready for anything, the world needs to be shown, taught in order to adapt accordingly. But the world was not adapting, instead, the world was fighting back. Organizations of supernatural hunters were formulating around the globe, while others simply operated in small groups on their own, but they existed, and they were just as much of a threat in their own right. Some operated simply for bountys, killing a supernatural or bringing them to the highest bidder, resulted in high rewards. Others capturing them, and using their bodies for their own agenda. Some simply killed for sport, or to rid them from the planet.

When humans started showing up with what could only be called magical powers, however, it created a dilemma of morality among society, the hunters, and the supernatural. It is completely unknown how this happened, no one supernatural nor human seems to have an answer. But humans were so fearful, that hunters began to hunt the average human which happened to possess magic as well. And this is how we were born, Ethereal Academy. But to the public, we simply go by Kosworth Academy.

Supernatural:

All types of supernatural exist, and therfor you can be anything within this roleplay. The only things I will not allow or supernatural with the ability to transform into some other form which is obnoxiously large and unrealistic to be in this city. You must explain the traits of your supernatural and what they can do, or link to a place that does. You will need to take up the generic traits of these supernatural, no sparkling vampires and anime related supernatural. Note that, supernatural are like normal people when it comes to the kind of people they are, some good, some evil.

Magic:

Both supernatural creatures and humans can possess magic. The humans that possess magic however will have just discovered it and will be either weaker or lack any kind of control at all.

Vessels:

Vessels are humans that have a very large capacity for magic and magical energy, without any actual magical abilities. In the Academy, they are sometimes used in teams (though its uncommon) to gather and hold the magic of their teammates, and give bursts of magic and energy as needed. This has several purposes ranging from teams that are extremely strong their power is nearly uncontainable and destructive, or overwhelms the body when used repetitively, teams that have people that are temperamental and cannot restrain their emotions, therefor causing their magic to run rampant, or strategic teams that share their magic with each other to both last longer and have equally strong members. Vessels are taught to absorb magic and link their bodies with the others, consequently having to absorb any damage they take, and sense their emotions. Humans that are vessels are extremely rare, supernatural cannot be vessels, it is as new of a phenomenon as humans with magic and not completely understood. Without proper gear and their team, vessels are simply normal humans and powerless.

Rankings:

X. Top ranked magical user or supernatural, so much so that this rank is also called the rankless; differently from unranked. These people have mastered their abilities to the fullest extent possible and are very knowledgeable. They are also extremely powerful, and considered dangerous. Most people will never reach this rank no matter how strong they are. It's extremely rare.
1. What is considered the normal top rank magic or supernatural, they have a great understanding of their abilities and are quite knowledgeable, they are considered to be strong-very strong. This rank is uncommon.
2. Magic users or supernatural that have a good grip of their abilities, but lack in experience and knowledge and have a lot of room to grow. Decent in strength.
3. The average magical user or supernatural, still learning their abilities, but seem to understand them somewhat. Not very strong but not weak either.
4. What is considered a weak supernatural or magical user, lacking in many areas.
5. What is considered someone with no control over their abilities in any way, with no knowledge how to use them.
Unranked: Someone that has not been given a rank and/or has not been discovered.

Hunters:

There are all kinds of hunters, but most hunters are normal people, that have chosen to take action for various reasons. There are however, some supernatural or magical hunters, but this is extremely rare (until now supernatural unhunters was unheard of.) They use all kinds of weapons from guns with silver bullets, bows with silver arrows, or other olden time fairy tale weapons towards the supernatural. Others use scientifically created weapons, deadly to both humans and supernatural. Hunters are considered to be above the law, when it comes to the supernatural and magical wielding humans. However, they are treated like everyone else when it comes to committing crimes on "innocent people" (regular humans, or regular crimes).

The Academy:

Ethereal Academy was created by Joe Kosworth, in honor of his daughter that was the first human magical user, killed by the hunters. Believing that everything wasn't simply black or white, he wanted to create a place where people like his daughter would not only be safe, but would learn about their abilities and potential, and train to protect not only themselves but others both supernatural and human. The academy has a rigorous program to create nothing short of soldiers, but with the heart and soul of a place of something much different. It is a place that is very warm and inviting, where people aren't looked at as monsters and some are even taught about humanity and morality.

Students are given a ranking upon joining the academy, this is determined by a test they're forced to take. This was created for the teachers and staff to know what they are dealing with and how to teach each person, but also for those with lower rankings to strive to be better. Until they are given the test at enrollment, students are considered unranked. Though the school mainly focuses on physical and magical training, students are given a rigorous home study academic program that they must do at their own pace, but with deadlines.


Teams:

In their first year, students are placed in teams with other students, to participate in simulations, training, group projects, and field work together. They are completely randomized with some regard to rankings, in order to force students to get along with one another and learn team work.

Dorms:

Every student is given a dorm room or an apartment in san francisco or surrounding areas. Dorms may house as much as many as three people, some are coed and some are not. Dorms are comfortable, tidy, and attractive but not overly lavish as to spoil the students. Students that want upgraded luxury rooms are required to work for them either with academics or training (or winning competitions.)
