Backstory:
Before being ushered off to the academy, Sol Arc lived a mundane life, eating food and sleeping during the hours in which the sun was down. Occasionally hanging out with friends. He enjoyed hobbies such as taking short walks, occasionally eating at restaurants and breathing in the fresh country air.

Life was never really tough nor easy for Sol, he still had both parents, though they seemed to be eager to send him off to a boarding school. He traveled a fair bit to visit relatives in his years, but no where really special or memorable, just familiar and comforting. He had always wished there were more to the world, something magical or extraordinary, but alas so far the world seemed to be as straightforwards and plain as himself. The idea of the academy intrigued him, perhaps he would meet some interesting people, or learn some interesting facts, in the end it didn't really matter, the world would take him where it willed and Sol seems perfectly okay with that.

So begins...

~Earlier that day~
6AM

Sol meandered in through the lingering chill winds, though the grand front gates, to his surprise there was not an entire cohort of students ready to start their first day as he was. His Uniform was freshly ironed and he had his writing utensils in his pocket. On his back was his woefully under packed bag that due to lack of weight would shift a wide margin with every step. "Perhaps classes do not run on the first day.." Sol looked down at his feet, he felt as if he had not started as perfectly as he could have. "Oh well, I suppose there-"

Sol looked up as a person carrying a stack of things in one hand and what looked like two flat pack tables in the nook under his other arm had approached. The person placed the tables on the ground and used his now free arm to hand Sol one of the books and a pamphlet. "You're a little early, Day class dorms are that way-" The man pointed to a path to the side with clear signage directing students towards dormitories. "-and that there is your day planner as well as a pamphlet on school proceedings, events and extra curricular activities should you be interested."

"Cool, thanks." Sol looked down at the small book and the paper, maybe he would join a club or something. He began walking towards where his dorm was supposedly.

~Earlier that day, but not quite as early as last time~
7am

"This is very difficult to read..."
Sol threw the pamphlet on the bedside table, he had settled into his dorm room pretty quickly, it was the normalest looking room he could find, he wasn't exactly sure if he was supposed to be assigned a room, but this one was quite average, if a little far from the entrance. "Well, it looks like I was right, classes don't seem to run today, just welcome events."

Sol turned to look out the window, a few more students were present, from up here he could even see some weird looking ones hiding in bushes, watching new students filter by. He hoped there weren't any there watching him as he entered. "That's a little bit creepy." The school seemed nice though, the trees were in a state of colour that the current season was indeterminable, Sol had lost all sense of what day of the week it was, and he could only barely feel a sense of time. "I was expecting this to all be rather exciting, but I think this school thing is going to be awfully underwhelming, with nothing interesting or unusual happening, oh well, that's life I suppose."

~Still not the present~
7:11:58am

Sol's things had been placed on his bedside table and he had left the Sol Dorms out one of the fire exits which led him to the side. Continuing onward he was led into a nice gardened area, a couple of students were making out on a bench but Sol ignored that and continued on his walk. The plants were well tended, perhaps too well tended, perhaps tended by some abnormal means which meant that the constant passage of students through these areas, young and destructive teenagers that they would be, left no discernible damage to the plants, perhaps the school just payed a gardener on weekends and this area was less frequently traveled, that seemed more likely.

The decision made in his mind was to wander for a bit, find something 'interesting' or 'unusual' or anything really, the school scene would be something he would obviously become familiar with over time, seeing it every day. While locating classrooms for future reference would be helpful, that could instead come with time, he didn't know how often he would be allowed to just explore freely, to push the unwritten boundaries that make this circle.

"Bad? This is irreparable, no, you've done the inconceivable." Desargon Leadloch lifted the scrawny man he faced by shirt collar to the point of dangling shoes. "Do you not have any idea what you have done, If I had half a sense I would end your bloodline here once and for all." Leadloch threw the individual to the ground and began stroking his chin as he looked at the damage that had been caused. "You're a lucky man Arky. First because I need your particular set of skills, secondly because tearing the wrong pages from this book could have killed you... or worse." Leadloch retrieved a silk square from his blazer pocket before carefully closing and lifting the worn book from the floor of his office, avoiding the two torn pages that had slipped free.

"wo-worse?" "Indeed, magic is not something you can let oneself be so care free around, I once knew a guy who ceased existing after damaging a spell book. Well, at least I think I did, that's the thing you know, or rather you don't know, you never know who you knew." Amidst his tangent Leadloch placed the book back onto his desk, moving some lesser papers out of the way to make space. "Those pages look to be unfilled, so I will forgive you this time, the clients will be unlikely of concern if two blank pages happen to be omitted." The man let out a sigh, taking a look at the shaking, scrawny Arc still on the floor. "Pick yourself up, we have more business to attend to, the day has barely begun."

-present day-
7:13am

Sol was knelt down peering into a small bush, he had seen a white rabbit disappear among the foliage but could no longer find any trace. "I wonder if this school has animals."
