Student or teacher?
Teacher, teaches "Triple Science" Period 4. (Bio, Chem, Physics)

Backstory
Imdius is one of the few demons who had watched human development and modernisation over the back 3000 years. Playing a massive part in evil human actions in the past through either possession, contracts or simply manipulative words. After growing bored of inducing suffering to the human race, Imdius had noticed their fear in 'monsters' which exist within their cultures or hiding in remote areas. From that, he decided to teach monsters themselves the sciences, hoping to have them mess up some time in their life to cause an uproar in which he can take advantage of.

So begins...

As the headmaster, Monstrum, continued his pondering at his own desk, waiting for the aspiring student council members to make their not-so-calm appearance, his lonely presence was suddenly disturbed by the appearance of a new one. Imdius. Suddenly appearing in one of the chairs in front of Monstrum's desk, already chilled and comfortable as one leg rested across the other's knee. His body slouched back with one arm hanging over the chair, the other holding a flame, lit from the end of his finger, towards a cigarette which was held in his mouth. The bright red waistcoat, black and white striped open collared shirt and reddish trousers conflicted heavily with the colours of the chair.

With a couple puffs of the cigarette, smoke already gushing out of his mouth. His hand, shaped like a gun, was held up to his mouth, allowing him to blow the flame out with a smile as he looked towards Monstrum.
"So. What's got you so down?" Imdius questioned with all his swagger, taking a few more puffs before continuing, "You look like you shit yourself after eating too much Tacobell. Y'sure there weren't any razorblades in them?" He laughed, his own joke may not be amusing to others, but it was amusing to him, even his own laugh gave off the massive swag levels in his persona.

"You should be more happy, especially meeting your new student council!" Imdius stated, his arms raised in the air as he cheered a little before lowering them back to their original position.

Amelia StuartImage
Once the class had seemingly settled down and the tutor because talking, Amelia gave a heavy sigh, wondering just how many more years of dull education she'd have to repeat over and over again. Being around the age of 18 when she was bitten meant Amelia has already sat through countless repeat years of highschool, and Monstrum - though it had it's quirks - didn't seem to be quite different.

Amelia considered getting up and leaving the room, it seemed a good handful of students already had, possibly with the same motive as her; boredom. Sparring wasn't much use to Amelia anyway, she already knew how to attack and how to defend, fighting for a meal was all she ever really did, of course she did have a few hobbies such as reading, but 152 years had given her plenty of time to finish reading an entire library or two, so now most books seemed rather dull to her.

As the teacher lead the class through to a separate room, Amelia paused by her desk for a moment as she fought within her mind on whether she should use now as an excuse to leave or not, but she only had a brief moment to think as the classroom was emptying through the portrait rather quickly - "Bother.." she bit her lip and sighed, following the other through the painting and into the apparent 'physical activity' room.



ImageAiko Nozaki
Being one of the only secretaries at Monstrum, and also being the main Librarian, Aiko was forced to sit alongside the other teachers and facility staff as the headmaster gave his welcoming speech which Aiko had heard oh so many times before - infact she could even repeat it word for word if she wanted to, though luckily for the sake of anyone who didn't want a word-for-word repeat of the headmaster's speech, Aiko didn't talk much.

As soon as the assembly was over, Aiko darted her way back to the main office just outside of the Headmaster's, and sat at the desk she had proudly claimed hers after having proven to be a worthy secretary of the leading head Monstrum himself. Aiko sat and waited silently at her desk, her porcelain fingers making a dangerous sound as the tapped against the keyboard keys of the computer she'd been provided in order to sort all of the needed files so Mr.Monstrum knew where to find them. Mr.Monstrum was a very busy man, running a school was difficult, especially when the students were all non-human beings with special needs to be taken care of.

Aiko had just finished typing up the names of all the students who required 'fresh meat' for their meals when the arrival of the Headmaster made her jump. Aiko quickly scurried from her seat and stood by the office door to bow in greeting and see if the Headmaster required anything of her, though strangely he didn't say a word and simply strode through to his office, Aiko too returning to her post at the desk. She heard the Headmaster's phone buzz within his pocket, and from the corner of her eye she'd seen him jump visibly, clearly he was on-edge over something, Aiko assumed it was down to it being a new year with more and newer student joining, meaning lots of work to be doing. Aiko gave a soft sigh, slouching back in her seat slightly for a moment as she looked over her checklist of forms and other such things to complete before the first week of the year is over, lessons and accommodation had been sorted, but there were still various other necessities that had yet to be completed.

The familiar crackle of the intercom which sounded just before whatever the Headmaster was going to say told her that he'd already been thinking about the workload too, "Would anyone interested in taking part in the student council report to my office in half an hour?" the Headmaster said over the intercom, leaving it at that. The student council! Of course! How could Aiko have forgotten the Headmaster's plans for forming a student council? Quickly, Aiko jumped up from her seat and hurried to the Headmaster's door, giving it a quick tap of her knuckles before entering.

"M-Mr. Monstrum, I..!" the girl sputtered out, but was cut short when she noticed another presence in the room- Imdius, the science teacher, "M-my apologies.." she mumbled in embarrassment, giving a bow of respect before backing out of the room and closing the office door behind her, stopping outside the door for a moment to take a deep breath to calm herself, "Student council.." she mumbled to herself, heading back to her desk to frantically look for an empty register and a few other things she could set up for the student council members-to-be could sign.

He owns this school. Behave.

Image

The Headmaster leaned back and slid a cabinet open on his desk, taking out a large bottle of rich alcohol, ignoring Imdius for the time being. He poured four glasses. scooting one towards the demon and shotgunning... the entire bottle, tossing it back into the drawer and letting the shot glasses sit. "What do you need, Imdius? Any issues today? Something causing your skin to crawl?" As his trusted maintenance man, adorned in tools and weapons, entered the room, he rose and set a shot glass on the other side of the desk. "Is everything in order beneath us, Strelok? No leaks? No seals busted? The gate is stable? This year your job will be ever more important. My son is here, and you know what that means. Oh, Aiko, come back in here. I have need of you." As he called his secretary in, he set down yet another shot.
"A demon prince's spawn, my son, and a godling among other things this year. Remind me to retire after this, please." He took his own shot glass and held it up. "I don't remember who we're protecting anymore. Humanity from our kind, or our kind from humanity. Be that as it may... I toast, to another year of disappointment, stress, and saving the world.
Image

The tall immortal stood slowly and began to pace behind his desk. "There are many things that I require everyone here to do in the coming week. First things first, make sure that there is no fighting. Keep the vampires away from the werewolves and visa versa. On the subject of vampires, make sure that they are well fed before they get close to Sanguin. I don't want another incident. Strelok, I need you to run a few errands outside of just your usual work. If you can find the time, I need you to procure a displacer beast and three unicorns. Don't ask. He circled the desk and put his hands on Aiko's shoulders, smiling warmly at her "Aiko, my gorgeous, trusted secretary. I need you to pick up a few things. The necronomicon and the mask of nyarlethotep. Strelok can show you where the vault is. He knows his way around the sub basement. He kissed her on the cheek before turning and facing the demon. "Now... Imdius... can I trust you to look over the student council? The children will be arriving any minute, and as such I need you to help me choose the best candidates. We need three positions filled. Can you handle that?"
Image

Waylen turned and leaned against his desk, looking at the four assembled around him. "Now. You have your jobs. Go do them."

Image
Randal "Flags" Monstrum

Image

Flags stood from his chair in the auditorium and shrugged at the two dispondant girls, choosing to find a new stage instead of being ignored. He brought up his schedule on his tablet and read over it, noting that "Sparring" was first on the list. It didn't take him long to find the class, and enter the painting with the rest of them.
Image

He really didn't need this class. He knew how to fight. He knew the magic to get him out of situations if he couldn't fight. In the end, even if he couldn't fight, it's not like he couldn't die.

so, seeing as he had nothing really to risk, Flags decided that it was time to get this show on the road. "So, teach... What's this class for again? Seems pretty silly considering most races are naturally gifted at fighting" The boy stretched, popping his back and sighing as he turned and punched the student next to him in the face.

ImageAiko Nozaki
(void the part where Aiko returns to her desk)
To her surprise, the Headmaster called her back into the office just as she was halfway out the door. Aiko nodded sheepishly and re-entered the room, only then did she notice that the janitor, Strelok, was also in the room alongside Imdius. In all honesty, the two scared her quite a bit, Imdius' overall menacing looks and the fact that Aiko hadn't ever seen Strelok's face was enough to give her the chills each time she saw either of them. Regardless, she stood obediently by the desk and awaited her orders, shaking her head shortly to politely decline the drink poured out for her, unable to take in any form of substance due to her internal anatomy, or therefor lack of - Aiko's porcelain shell contained nothing but her soul, not even an exit point, so if she was to drink the liquid the only way out would be back through her mouth again.

Once the Headmaster had finished speaking with the janitor, it seemed to be Aiko's turn to receive instructions. The doll's porcelain frame couldn't help but flinch as her shoulders were touched, but the warm smile from the Headmaster that followed seemed to put her somewhat at ease, at least for the time it took for the Headmaster to explain what he wanted of her. Aiko gave a nod to show her understanding and once again jumped quite visibly as she felt a kiss land upon her cold, glossy cheek. In response Aiko mumbled something almost inaudible which sounded along the lines of "Yes Sir", her eyes flickering back and forth from the floor to the Headmaster, not wanting to seem rude but unable to hold eye-contact for long after what seemed like such an intimate act (to her). If she could blush, she would have, but her body movement quite obviously showed her embarrassment just as well as any discolouring of the cheeks could.

Aiko was released from her squirming as the Headmaster turned around to then address Imdius, her relief was obvious by the fact that she'd stopped shaking and could actually form proper sentences again. The doll turned on her heel to face Strelok, "Would you mind uhm.. taking me to the sub basement? W-when you have time, of course.." her voice still hadn't recovered from the stumbling and mumbling, but her tone was usually quiet anyway.

"What do you need, Imdius? Any issues today? Something causing your skin to crawl?" The words from the headmaster were slightly offensive to the egotistical demon, there's no way his skin would ever crawl.
"PAH!" Imdius replied, "Like fuck would my skin be crawling, I'm just bored and you look like you're shitting razorblades." He laughed once more as he caught the shot glass as it moved across the desk, nodding as a sign of thanks as he took another puff on his cigarette before holding the shot glass up with the headmaster.

"I don't remember who we're protecting anymore. Humanity from our kind, or our kind from humanity. Be that as it may... I toast, to another year of disappointment, stress, and saving the world." The headmaster stated before taking his shot, the rest of the people in the room quickly followed. Imdius gave off a large sigh of relief as he lowered the glass back to the desk. "Damn, this shit's good." He called out as he noticed he was the only one sitting down. This caused him to quickly stand, just to fit in, taking more puffs on his cigarette as he did so. One hand was pushed into his pocket as his whole body was leaning backwards and to the side slightly, redefining swag in the most natural way possible.
After basking in his whole glory, Imdius was pulled back to reality by the headmaster as he turned to give his order;
"Now... Imdius... can I trust you to look over the student council? The children will be arriving any minute, and as such I need you to help me choose the best candidates. We need three positions filled. Can you handle that?"
"Pfft. Of course I can do that. Gives me something to do after all, I need more little shits to insult." Again, he laughed at his own words...

Strelok didn't ask questions. He never did. It was because, frankly speaking, he didn't care about the whys and wherefores. Come hell or high water; a larger, uglier version of the bastard child Randy or the end of the world, he would do his job the same way he always did - the way that worked. So really, unicorns and a displacer beast didn't phase him in the slightest. He'd just take a helicopter to what remained of the Schwarzwald at some point and capture three of the most endangered and dangerous magical creatures so jealously guarded by the elves of the area. A shame they'd be hostile to him, too; they made the most fantastic bratwürst and beer. If only he could ignore that small detail where they ate humans which were killed upon going too deep into their woods.

His reply to his employer was short and curt as was the nature of discussions of the Business. It was written in the contract, after all, that only the Headmaster was permitted to divulge any details of the sub-basement complex. Strelok read that as 'don't speak to others of what you work on'. Which was a thing he'd do gladly. Trade Secrets and all that were to be kept.

"Nothing is amiss down there. I'll get on it." Six words and he turned before the man had finished drinking down his refined fermented potato juice of calmness.

His old friend and boss Waylan was tall, jaded as balls and drinking to drown his sorrows. Tuesday five-oclock as usual, it seemed. He had yet to teach the man - Or was he God? Beast King? Magician? Jewish mysticist? He never worried anymore - about the drinking ways of the hill-folk, and it seemed like he never had the time to. Too bad, so sad. Not his problem to deal with right now.

He gave a nod to the Headmaster, recognizing the pregnant nature of the minute and deigning to leave, as student-related things he loathed with a passion. He turned, the not so well known member - well, to him anyway - among the staff by name of Imdius falling into his field of view for a second. The redhead was rude and brash, as those of the hair color were wont to be. Not Strelok's business, so he didn't care.

Upon the completion of his turn, he turned his masked head to look at the other figure in the office who had asked him a question, the one much more known and affectionately remembered by him. Aiko the Doll, secretary and general paperwork warrior that he shunted off all of his reports to Waylan to.

When she finished her nervous question, though, Strelok got even leerier than he usually did. Gesturing her forward outside the headmaster's office with a tilt of his head, he walked out the doors, leaned to close them behind her and then fixed her with a worried stare. Not that she could tell, as his face was masked, but the gesture was there. For his peace of mind rather than her own, but still.

"Aiko, what's this? Why do you want to know of my workspace so readily?" he asked of her. Of course, he couldn't actually bring her down to the deep parts. But the man tried to keep the working friendliness up, for courtesy's sake if nothing else.

She mumbled something. Strelok had to strain to hear it over the sound of the school's bell alert system ringing. She started again, telling him about something along the lines of "want to know more about my colleagues". Strelok put a hand to his mask and behind it he discreetly rubbed his face against the edgy plastic interior.

Truth was, he wasn't going to show her to the sub-basement. Not the true depths of it where the lights often failed, water leaked, anomalies arose and mutants prowled...

Not for the first time, Strelok was thankful for this mask which concealed his face. It hid the dead-eyed stare that crept up onto his face at that moment in time, it might have unnerved even the porcelain secretary. It wasn't like the whole thing was unsanctioned, though; if Walyan had something to say against it, he probably would have said it. To call him a sharp operator would be a gross understatement - Strelok had never seen the man falter, in either battle or business. In fact, Strelok indeed personally believed that Waylan Monstrum was one of the last remaining pillars of the old world.

"Aiko." he began. "The underground complex is restricted to the majority of staff and students alike. Do you mean to tell me our boss-" he gave a jerk to the direction of the office, where something loud made a noise. "Hasn't told you of the things our workplace holds?"

Her shy shaking of the head answered in the negative. Strelok gave a sigh, before taking on a cheery attitude.

"Very well. I can't show you anything more than the first level where I sleep and keep my gear, but I'll take you down."

Strelok gave a nod, turning on his heel and walking out the office blocks, and to the tower's elevator before pressing the ground floor button and leaning against the wall. While the elevator went down - and Strelok had the nagging suspicion that Aiko was looking at him the entire time - he was gazing in the direction of the screws holding the roof mounting together, as if looking through them to see the elevator's mechanisms above to see whether or not they needed maintenance. To that, he sincerely hoped not. He replaced the damn things only two years ago - the certification on them was for four times that number, and the warranty guaranteed at least twelve years of operation. Then again, perhaps extra preventative maintenance on them was what he deserved for purchasing the things out of Helsinki & Son Smeltries instead of Ügenbörst-Halvella Foundryworks.

He had put his contacts he acquired over the years to good use. Granted, it might be a little petty to call in life debts for something as small as precision-machine fastenings or elevator cables or titanium powerline protective coverings, but Strelok maintained the notion that it was all worth it.

A short, silent walk out of the elevator of their boss's Tower and into the main building, then down through one of the hatch doors. Now, when you come up against these things, it's often good to recognize them on sight, and have the strength of an ox to lift the things. Six feet by two and a half, set into the ground, had to be lifted vertically. The two went down the hatch and the ladder with little fuss, Strelok closing it with a boom above them and re-locking the blood seal on it with a little of his own. These monsters weren't the piddly staircases leading to the underground storage rooms that the majority of the facility's basements were.

In truth, each tunnel that wasn't an emergency elevator to the places above would all converge to one walkway in an attempt to choke whatever might be coming up out of the underground complex. A side-room from this walkway led them through another, smaller, tunnel which lit up at Strelok's activation of a light switch and showed a few side-rooms.

"This is my equipment room. Stay out or some of it might activate on you." Strelok commented as he opened one of the smaller, lighter doors on the left and gave Aiko enough time to peer confusedly at shelves and shelves and shelves' worth of tools and equipment, as well as workbenches of the wooden, metal and welding variety, as well as a lathe, milling machine, bandsaw and table saw and guillotine before closing and stepping forward and along, forcing Aiko to step away from him and go down along the hallway. She looked confused.

"This is my weapons room. Same deal. And I know if some of it goes missing." Strelok said, giving much the same deal with the room - allowing a brief glimpse of it before shutting the door and moving forward. She appeared to be as confused by that as she was with the previous.

Next room was where he relaxed, lived and slept when not on duty. Before he could open the door, though, a very light pressure fell on his shoulder. In earlier years he would have reflexively flinched, drawn his knife and tried to cut off the fingers of whoever it was that tried. Nowadays he just glanced up in surprise.

Aiko was holding his shoulder. And she wasn't able to go tomato red, but she certainly went through the facial expressions for it.

"Strelok..." And after all these years, his name still sounded weird being spoken by her, "I do not believe you should keep me from our Headmaster's request any longer."

"What request would that be?" Strelok asked, suspicious of the Japanese doll.

"I was ordered to the vault. I am sure you know which one. I cannot tell you the reason behind my going there." she stated in a way that would have seemed emotionless and abrupt, but Strelok knew this was her equivalent of speaking a million words a minute and at a high-pitched tone of embarrassment.

It was then that Strelok knew he had misheard orders from his boss.

He shut his mouth with a near inaudible click of his teeth, closed the door and indicated for her to follow him. The door at the end of the hall had nine keypads on it. Strelok pressed out a combination across all of them with the fast pace of long practice. Eventually, the - wooden - door opened.

Directly behind the wooden door was a haphazard - if devastatingly effective - device consisting of an automated anti-tank cannon on a gimballed mount aiming directly at the door. It was because he entered the code correctly that he was not blown to pieces. Spelled in tape on the gunmetal grey shield of the cannon - the part that was curved, facing forwards, generally deflecting shrapnel and small arms fire - were the words "DON'T JUST STAND THERE, COME IN".

Strelok led Aiko through the doorway and around the cannon. Past it was yet another door, which led into yet another - if smaller - hallway. He led her to the third entryway on the left, keying in a code which opened the sturdy blast door, leading directly into the vault that Walyan ordered both of them to go to. Or rather, the "vault".

The maintenance technician nodded, closing the door behind the doll and heading back. An echoing snarl from around the corner told Strelok that the mutants were due another culling.

Some time later, the secretary emerged from the sub-basement tunnels, without Strelok. Nobody worried, though. He'd come up when he was done.

There was always one student who questioned the value of the sparring class. This year it just so happened to be the headmaster's boy, bringing an evil grin to Kaen's face. He gestured to the ring and watched as many of the students made a path for Randal to move through.

"Be the first to enter the ring and find out." The ring itself was enchanted by Karen to erase any and all fatal damage that is done inside the ring. If (and when) someone would die in the ring they are knocked out instead, but with the full appearance of harm. Pain was still present and minor wounds wouldn't be stopped, but that was all part of the fun.

As Randal entered the ring Kaen tossed him a school training sword then held one sword up for the class to see. Anyone want to challenge him to a friendly brawl? The winner of this match gets 1 Silver star and a free magica act from yours truely."

He made the same offer every year he has been a teacher, and helping the winner was always fun. Last year the student saved her act until hallows eve and asked Kaen to conjure up a party, which in the end shut out that nights dance. Monstrum wasn't happy with that but got over it shortly after.

Shame looked over from the boy to the warlock. She saw a student enter the ring and smiled. She rose her hand as markings appeared on her skin. "I will challenge Randel to a brawl..." She stood from her seat and walked over to the warlock and held out her hand as he set the sword in her hand.

She gripped it tightly, closing her red eye as she entered the ring. She could smell his aura, which only made her smile, her canines poking over her lips. She pulled her hair up in a high ponytail, leaving down her bangs and got into a stance, her feet promptly side by side, both hands on the sword and faced her opponent.

She hopes that the sand and flames don't go out of control...

Amelia StuartImage
The boredom she suffered within the class was proving to take it's toll on Amelia, she stood at the back of the crowd watching and listening silently as the teacher picked out the necromancer, and asked the class for an opponent. The shady-looking girl bravely stepped up to the challenge, and that's where Amelia lost interest. It clearly wasn't going to be a fair fight. In the cover of the hype from the other students, Amelia slipped into the shadows and made her exit, putting her parasol up once she was outside the class and roaming the halls to block the suns rays from her delicate skin.

The hallways were just as boring as the sparring classroom, lined with antiques and classic paintings - Amelia had seen such decor many, many times before coming to Monstrum. Regardless, she just kept walking and walking until she'd eventually come across the dormitory block, to which she entered in order to look around and find her assigned dorm room. Amelia took the key given to her at the front desk from her pocket and fitted it into the lock, turned the key and went inside, slamming the door behind her with a heavily sigh as she put down her parasol and grabbed the nearest sheet she could find, stringing it up over the windows to give her some shade before she sank back onto her chosen bed and closed her eyes, hoping to sleep until nightfall.





ImageAiko Nozaki
Once out of the basement, clutching the two requested items tightly to her chest though making very sure not to damage or even scuff them as she scurried down the hallways and back to the office area. As she made her way back, Aiko passed a considerable amount of students which all seemed to be heading to the office, the thought of so many students heading that way made her somewhat nervous - but then she remembered that the demon science teacher, Imdius was put in charge of the student council, and so her worries were eased a little.

Yet still, she wanted to help however she could, which meant putting the items down for a mere moment so she could set up a blank sign-in sheet labelled 'Student Council Members, Sign Here' and placed it down on the front desk, making sure it was visible to anyone entering before picking the items back up again and giving a small knock on the Headmaster's door before entering, "I found the items, Sir" she hurries over to the desk and carefully places each item down, stepping back and resting her arms behind her back with a polite posture as she waited for feedback.

Xue remained quiet as Gem explained another of the various sides to human ways; why did they always have to overcomplicate things for no apparent reason? "I was raised as a human, human culture is second nature to me, if ever you have questions feel free to talk to me about it, alright? I'd be happy to explain anything." He heard Gem offer, and gave a slight nod, a toy bit distracted by the constant scent fluxes of the Ghoul, before suddenly another wave of scent met his nose - alongside the other scents he recognized was the scent of death, but different from the Ghoul scent - it lacked any blood.

Even corpses had the scent of blood, though it turned heavy and bitter; this had no scent of blood at all, just the scent of death. Xue slowed and stopped, noticing the sign above the door; Headmaster's Office. And the scent of death was coming from this room. A faint growl rumbled in his throat. "Just how many of the student body are dead?! It's ridiculous." Xue huffed, and then felt the air directly around him drop in temperature, causing the air to shiver as cold met warm. He instantly withdrew into himself, expression going blank and cutting off his musings, deciding he must see what this scent was.

In one quick motion he opened the door, remaining standing still for a moment as he judged his surroundings, taking in the several people in the office including the man, Strelok Xue thought he had said, a red-headed man, a young girl who was the source of the scent of death, another boy with the scent of charcoal and poison, and who he supposed to be the Headmaster.

Xue narrowed his eyes as he took a glance around, and then sidled over to the side of the door a bit both to let Gem pass him and stay close to the wall, observing the strangers with sharp teal eyes.

Sen had to admit, the Harpy's little sneeze was quite, cute. Usually the Demon was one to be quite flirtatious with all species and genders. It was more of a game to him than actual attraction or love. If he wanted to sleep with someone he had to be attracted to them though, he himself being quite vain only allowed the best looking to lay a hand on him in that way. But at the moment, he was still trying to get over the fact he was at the school in the first place. Being a bit of a whiny baby would surely annoy someone eventually enough to kick his ass. "Brienne and Beau." Sen muttered to himself, making a mental note of the two females name.

He couldn't help but roll his eyes at what seemed to be the Botanist teacher's remark on how great her class would be. We'll see. He thought to himself. Well at least he now knew he was right about Beau being a teacher. Despite her quite laid back attitude he could sense that authority vibe she probably unintentionally gave off. Maybe that was just her height again? Nonetheless he continued down the hallway, looking at the signs and navigating his way around.

Until the Harpy could be heard calling out from behind him, followed by another gust of wind, messing up his hair once again. His face turned sour and it was clear he was annoyed. Letting out an irritated sigh, he fixed up his hair once more, and turned slightly to look at the Harpy. God she was so dopey he thought. The teacher had already left for her question to reach her and now he was stuck with her. "Alright alright, just enough with your flapping if possible. You keep messing up my hair." At this point, Sen was too bothered to be mean to the Harpy, exhausted perhaps? When they get to the office, his energy will be back up again.



He walked silently, slightly glancing down at the Harpy from time to time but that was about it. The Demon was concentrating on the signs and how to get to the Headmaster's office. He was growing more annoyed however as he noticed he had passed a certain classroom twice already. He could already imagine the Harpy suggesting they ask someone for directions which he'd reply with I'd rather claw my eyes out. However, surprisingly he was lucky enough to overhear a conversation between to male's; all he heard was something to do with the council or something relevant. And so his brilliant plan was to follow them, and so he did. "Ha ha! That wasn't so hard, if you stick with me you'll never get lost-" He cut himself short from bragging as he realised he pretty much told Brienne that she could hang around him? Or at least that's how he saw it. He just shut up completely, cocky smile fading, and kept looking forward.

The two stopped at a door, one of them quickly opened it and everyone was inside. "Damn, three people here before me." Sen cursed to himself. He wanted to be the first but he wouldn't have made it in the first place is it weren't for the two other students.

Sen felt a bit uneasy as he could already sense the mixed species and the vibes they gave off. Their aura's were all different and he had never been in an environment like this before. The other Demon in the room caught his attention first is it was something he was used to being around. Sen wondered if perhaps this Demon would remember him or know of his status. Hopefully he would, it would be nice to get some royal treatment after being without it for roughly twenty minutes. "I just wanted to start off by saying that I think I would be the best option to lead the student council." It was far too quiet for his liking, everyone was just staring at one another, being weird and stuff. Besides, he wanted everyone to know how confident he was. Sen was getting a bit excited now, he was pretty pumped about the student council idea and there were a lot of attractive faces in the room, even more fun.

Running a little behind after being distracted by a squirrel, Jodhal ran through the hallways. The two heads, Jodac and Dae, argued with each other about going in the wrong direction as they did so. Vhal, on the other hand, was too occupied with the dead squirrel held in his mouth.
Finally, they had made it, the doorway labelled 'headmaster' was in their sights. Hopefully they weren't too late. Believing they had no time, Jodhal ran straight through the door, bursting into the room, skidding to a stop perfectly in line with the other students. "We're here for the student council sign up thingy!" Dae stated, not realising that it hadn't even started yet. "Oh, cool we made it." he smiled with realization.




Finally, the aspiring council members has appeared, and what a variety there was. All of them ranged in morphologies from a harpy to a demon, this could lead on to an amazing student council. If they all had the ability to do it. The worst case scenario would include all of them being incompetent fools, which could be a high possibility when it came to Imdius' consideration. Sadly, there were more than three, which would make this even more annoying, Imdius happily agreed to this because he thought it would be a simple job to do, after all, who would want to be in the student council? Apparently these guys...

Wait. Imdius thought as his mind fell back to think about the narration some more. Demon? Looking straight over towards the source of the demonic energy, Imdius instantly recognised the familiar figure. Sen Jumin... A sudden smile spread across his mischievous face as the demon prince heir made his egotistical statement. Ahh! What an amazing time to be a teacher! I was gonna give up teaching and go start world war three by convincing Putin to press the big red button! But that can wait! This little shit is here! How amazing! As a teacher, I can order this little shit around, I can scold the bastard if he starts acting like a dick! As Imdius was thinking all of this, he was already moving quickly through the room, seemingly dancing as random objects came into appearance around him. A desk, computer, phone, it was as if he was making plans and working on some kind of administration in such speed, typing away faster than anyone could, talking on the phone in some sped up voice. I'll have to put Putin on hold. Oh, but I don't want to loose such a great customer, I want him to summon me again. I'll just tell him to collect the seven dragonballs and wish for immortality in case it takes too long. That'll do! Oh, but I wanted to go back to hell to see my wife and three kids, it's been such a while... Imdius continued thinking to himself as he played with the strange floating equipment.
Suddenly, he stopped. The equipment quickly disappeared into a puff of smoke which mixed in with the smoke from Imdius' cigarette as he continued smoking away. "Wait, I don't even have a wife and three kids... He spoke out loud, not realizing it as his mind came back to reality, his smile returning to his face, this act threw Imdius into some strange pose; Leaning back on nothing, fingers pressed against his forehead as his other hand cupped around his elbow. Everyone could even see the SFX 'COOL MODE ACTIVATE' appear over his head as a small giggle was emitted.

"Now now, little boy. That kind of attitude is not that attitude of a successful leader. After all, we need to take all participants into consideration; I am Imdius! PhD in whatever-the-fuck-I-want. I'll be in charge of the student council and your science teacher."

Brienne dropped to the floor, her talons clacking softly against the laminated tiles. She hadn't meant to irritate Sen with her flapping, but it was her fastest mode of movement. Her grounded gait looked strange, something between a lope and a hop, a bastardization of a human's walk and the tiny bouncing of songbirds. Her long, peppy strides kept up with the demon rather easily, but she still felt uncomfortable about it. Plus the cool tile against her feet sent an occasional chill up her slim legs.

Measuring the time by the quiet click of her claws, the harpy wondered why her request for directions went unanswered earlier. Sen seemed just as lost as she'd been earlier. Brienne heard the voices a split second before her companion started following them. Stalking behind two other people to find the headmaster's office seemed creepy, but whatever worked. Better to seem creepy and get going than wander the halls until they both died of old age. Wait... could he even die of old age? The harpy didn't know much about the internal biology of other magical beings. She decided to stop thinking about it too hard, nothing much she could do either way.

"...Stick with me and you'll never get lost..." Brienne internally raised an eyebrow at that statement. From the way he acted, she got the feeling he wasn't one to make or have friends. He simply gave off the air of someone who didn't have the empathy to care about anyone but himself. She didn't say anything about it to him, but it made her curious. Could her feeling be wrong? She'd wait and see.

Squeezing into the headmaster's office behind the young man who led her here, Brienne cast her sharp chocolate eyes over everyone assembled. A red-headed man with strange red eyes lounged in the room before they'd arrived. Something about him struck the harpy as... odd. She couldn't place it. Beyond that, he stank of cigarette smoke. Brienne scrunched up her nose to try and force the pervading scent away from her nostrils. The next person she noticed as one of the two they followed in. He looked human to her, only his lavender eyes standing out. Perhaps he was a mage? She made a note to ask him later. The other of the two gave her a sort of monochrome feeling. White hair and eyes that hovered between ice blue and a pale green, accompanied by white and black clothes made her wonder where he came from. Certainly not anywhere she'd been. He too appeared human. Strange.

The area felt suddenly... incredibly claustrophobic. Resisting the urge to throw out her wings and make space for herself, she settled with ruffling and fluffing out the feathers on her wings, rubbing them together in front of her for a moment. Enclosed spaces didn't usually bother her, but so many people in such a relatively small space bothered one of the older, more animal spots of her brain. If something went wrong, there wouldn't be much room to maneuver. Not that she expected anything to go wrong, but the feeling lingered with her still. Sen spoke first, claiming his intent to lead the council. Behind her, she noticed the Cerberid-creature shove its way into the room, making her even more uncomfortable with the squeeze.

Swifter than a falcon, she used his simple statement to springboard into her own pitch. "I don't care about being in charge of the council, but I feel I'd make a great addition. I'm Brienne Showalter." She turned towards the taller red-head, who she assumed was a staff member. "I don't have as much academic experience as some people, but I have other kinds of practical knowledge, including but not limited to: counting and assigning supplies, navigation, financial math, assigning tasks, checking inventories, teamwork, and foresting." She studiously avoided mentioning anything about physical or magical prowess, neither of which she'd ever been particularly good at. In fact, she'd only ever been in one fight in her life, and she still had the scars from the draw. "Anything else I can probably learn with some training." Her amicable smile faded on the walk to the headmaster's office, but it returned in all its brilliant glory as she finished her statements.

Despite her relative confidence in her statement, a twinge of nervousness thrummed through the harpy's body. Maybe she'd come on too strong? Her feathers fluffed up again and she nervously pushed her hair behind her left ear with her wing. Maybe they were supposed to wait for the red-head man to ask for their pitch. Too late to take it back now. Brienne's mountaineer spirit flared. So be it. Whatever happened, happened, and she wouldn't be sorry for it.

Image Gem slid into the office along with Xue and the rest of the students that arrived around the same time. He could feel his mind gradually seething in annoyance as arrogant characters such as Imidius and Sen Jumin, demons...of course, made themselves apparent. They Flaunted their demonic natures like a pair of sweaty jocks swinging their manhood around trying to see which had it bigger. Gem meanwhile had no trouble disappearing in the background arms clenching his satchel his vague harmless gaze frozen in place like some sort of badly made plastic mask. He relaxed after a moment of adjusting and his gaze took on a more cool and calculative nature. Making Student counsel with this lot was going to be a challenge. However there wasn't a single problem he couldn't study his way through. He spoke up clearly, addressing Imidius, offering a hand to shake his sudden movement contradictory to his previously invisible stature.

"Sir, I am Gem Kenji, I've completed up to 11 grades of education with A levels in all general education classes as well as completing several electives including musical education and the fine arts. I've participated in Student council at human schools since the start of Highschool and am very familiar with the processes involved in establishing school clubs, organizing class treasury, and have managed to sucessfully pull off a trip for 500 students to travel across state to Florida without a single hitch. I'm probably more familiar with humans and their culture than anyone in this school and though I don't know much about monsters of any kind I assure you I'm a quick learner on ALL subjects, supernatural or no. Leader or not I hope you find me a necessary addition to the student council here."

Gem spoke with a strange kind of passion, his delicate violet gaze sharp and laser-like with the determined passion only a true nerd like him could achieve. He pushed his glasses up with a slender finger, only increasing the image, waiting for Imidius to grasp his hand and complete the shake. In times like these it was necessary to be abnoxiously arrogant, if only just to be seen. Imidius was looking for a leader, he would be that leader at all costs.

If all else fails....I could eat them all. He thought. He smiled, the corners of his mouth curling into a grin giving him a creepy, knowing look. "Let's face it, demon. You don't care about who runs this mess, you just want it to be entertaining, don't you?"
He hissed the words under his breath, barely audible but his eyes said it all quite clearly. Demons where very simple creatures when you got down to it. They all just wanted a good time after all. Their idea of a good time wasn't all that unlike his own.

Rook smiled as more entered the Headmasters office and he comfortably sat back and seemingly invisible from the rest of the group. They were all very interesting and no one seemed to be related at all by species or other wise, they were all strangers. Really this seems like the beginning of a game or a action movie of some sort but of course to a human it would be the beginning of a fantasy. His gaze gravitated around to the louder men and then on to the rest as he soaked in the sight of them all, this is who he maybe meeting the most. The people he will know for the school year, maybe even more than that if he stays and if they do. But first they have to go through with figuring out who will do what on this council if they dont all kill or eat each other first. With a raise of his hand he spoke in a sturdy baritone "I will volunteer to be the Secretary."

As people entered the office, Xue only got more and more tense; the place was getting crowded, and Xue wasn't necessarily the most accepting of strangers. The boy who smelled strongly of lizard, the girl who smelled of death, and the two adults were only the beginning though, it seemed. The first arrivals entered as the black-haired girl left, catching the door before it swung shut.

The first to arrive after them was a boy and girl. The girl smelt of a summer day and, well, birds; which judging from the wings she had instead of arms, was probably normal. He vaguely wondered if the purple hair was natural for her kind. With the supernatural, you really never could tell if it was natural or if they had dyed it, either as some attempt to fit in or out of rebelliousness in an attempt to be more human. She looked uncomfortable in the tight quarters, even more than Xue was, her wings twitching every now and then as if she wanted to fly away from this place. To her, he realized, it must be like a cage with so many people. She probably preferred nature, just as he did.

The boy though, he raised Gem's hackles with the way he scanned the room, as if not seeing them, but not because he was unable; he was dismissing their presence as if they weren't worth consideration. "I just wanted to start off by saying that I think I would be the best option to lead the student council." He stated.

Xue couldn't help it. He almost... laughed. Just because one was a strong fighter, did not mean they were a great leader, as this boy seemed to assume, though it was obvious from such a statement that he fully expected to be such. To be an Alpha was far more than ordering others around; it was taking their lives onto your own shoulders, no matter their burdens. It was a dark and weighty thing; not something to flaunt. One who could be so outwardly sure of himself as being named leader could never be a good Alpha, most likely didn't even understand what it was to actually be a leader. And then this guy comes in here like they were beneath him and instantly declares himself Alpha, unaware of how ignorant that portrayed him as; it truly was laughable that such a person even thought he was Alpha material.

Nonetheless, Xue could tell he would be a strong opponent if they were to battle. Being strongest of the pack was certainly a large part of being leader, as the Alpha was the one the pack looked to for guidance, and to save them in times of trouble; but it was not everything. Even if they were to have a dominance battle, something he assumed the school wished to avoid, Xue would never accept this person as his Alpha. However, more to the present situation, the room was small and there were a lot of weaker people, whom Xue would rather avoid harming; it was not the time or place, should the other attempt to challenge his fellow Alpha. Thus, with narrowed eyes, he edged backwards even more, preferring to watch happenings from the outside and allowing the wall to protect his back, observing from the shadows, as was a normal preference for foxes.

The girl spoke up next. "I don't care about being in charge of the council, but I feel I'd make a great addition. I'm Brienne Showalter." She stated, and then paused as she looked around at the gathered students once more before turning back to the teachers before continuing. "I don't have as much academic experience as some people, but I have other kinds of practical knowledge, including but not limited to: counting and assigning supplies, navigation, financial math, assigning tasks, checking inventories, teamwork, and foresting. Anything else I can probably learn with some training."

The girl, now dubbed Brienne, once more glanced around the room, her feathers rising as she met each gaze, and shifted nervously, her head dipping a bit in a bird-like way. Then as if something occurred to her, she straightened, head held high. Xue let her presence slip to the back of his mind; she had identified herself as both not much of a threat, but also spirited, the kind of person he could get along with. There was no need to be wary of her presence, so he let her presence slip into the same place Gem's was, the stage right above background noise and focused on the thing that was more important right now; observing, critiquing the other strangers with those critical eyes. Deciding who was friend and foe. He noted with a glance that the was a careful look in Gem's eyes, despite the vagueness of his expression, revealing to those who knew how to look that despite seeming as if he was spacing out, the was very much paying attention. Gem was worried about he other presences himself; as if Xue would allow a fight to break out with ones such as he and the Brienne girl in the room. He turned his eyes back to the strangers again, this time with traces of malice for those who would cause subordinate types to worry; it was seen as low to not inform others of your status when one first meets in the ways of the Kitsune. Yet another reason to not like the human world.

The door burst open again, revealing... a three headed dog. Alright then. Xue tipped his head curiously at the creature, as it went over to the group of students and sat down. "We're here for the student council sign up thingy!... Oh, cool we made it." The creature informed happily. Xue blinked couple times, staring, before his eyes cut to a red-headed man as he stepped forward to address the crowd of students speaking first to the arrogant black-haired demon boy.

"Now now, little boy. That kind of attitude is not that attitude of a successful leader. After all, we need to take all participants into consideration; I am Imdius! PhD in whatever-the-fuck-I-want. I'll be in charge of the student council and your science teacher." He introduced, smirking at the overconfident demon boy. Xue decided that he and this man would most likely get along; he seemed to understand, at least to some extent, what it was to be an Alpha - and his attitude even seemed to be similar on some ways to Xue's own, thus they would probably be able to see eye-to-eye on many things.

And them Gem took a step forward out of the crowd, a determined light in his eyes, and began to speak. "Sir, I am Gem Kenji, I've completed up to 11 grades of education with A levels in all general education classes as well as completing several electives including musical education and the fine arts. I've participated in Student council at human schools since the start of Highschool and am very familiar with the processes involved in establishing school clubs, organizing class treasury, and have managed to sucessfully pull off a trip for 500 students to travel across state to Florida without a single hitch. I'm probably more familiar with humans and their culture than anyone in this school and though I don't know much about monsters of any kind I assure you I'm a quick learner on ALL subjects, supernatural or no. Leader or not I hope you find me a necessary addition to the student council here."He illustrated at length, in a clear tone, offering his hand to Idmus, which the teacher accepted. Gem smiled. "Let's face it, demon. You don't care about who runs this mess, you just want it to be entertaining, don't you?"

Xue allowed himself a tiny smile; he had judged Gem's strength of character correctly, despite the front he put up.

"I volunteer to be secretary." The white-haired boy whose scent was of lizard followed up, raising his hand and then putting it down again.

Xue took another glance around, and then reviewed what information he had in his head as the group waited for another to speak up, then reluctantly realized that it would have to be him that was next. "I suppose it's my turn then." He sighed, taking a step away from the wall to address the teachers, gaze steady. "I am Xue, the Alpha Pup of the Western Kitsune Tribe. I'm not applying for the leader's position, though. I was not sent to this school to learn of my abilities; I was sent here to learn the ways of humans, and how other kinds interact with them. As such, I think a position on the Student Council would best serve my education, as a way to see past the surface of things, a behind-the-scenes place if you will. That is why I'm not applying for the leader's position; however, I do have experience leading, much more than any other student in this room in would seem. I can offer the leader my support through advice and long experience, explain things about leadership the one elected probably wouldn't even realize about such things otherwise. As such, I volunteer for one of the other two positions, and I vote for Gem and the Harpy, Brienne to be elected leader and other member." He bid at length, and then stepped back to the wall, word quota of the day completely overtaxed, and looked to the students to see which one would be brave enough to step forward next.

ImageWaylen Monstrum
He owns this school. Behave.

Image

The Headmaster stood at his desk and gestured for Imdius to exit the room. Once he was sure the demon was out of his personal space, he advanced and locked it, letting the teacher handle what was now his responsiblity. He still had many things to plan. From his position in the center of the room, Waylen began to pace along the werewolf fur rug. As he circled, a sickly green rune began to appear, weaving its way around on the dark, matted fur, creating what could be described as a celtic knot. Words that changed too quickly to read began to scroll through the twisting lines inside of it.

Waylen "The Hunter" Monstrum clicked his lips together as a foul oder like that of rotten alcohol mixed with rotting eggs took to the air - no doubt smellable to the students outside - and clawed its way through the air. Waylen didn't mind, he had grown acustomed to the smell a while back.

The Slime that appeared seemed more like a ball of rot and rust than a war machine that could wipe out thousands of armored infantry in the span of an hour, but it quivered with the potential power within it, waiting for its masters orders. "Abberrant #151,000. I dub thee... Tim. Your job this year is to make quite certain that the town of Sanguine is protected from human and monster alike. I urge you to burn the Monstrum Family Crest into their village sign, so they know that the school year has started".

The Abberration jiggled excitedly, shifting between an amorphous blob of wrongness and poison and more recognisable forms - a diseased animal, a dying child, a beating heart - before bounding off towards the door. It slid itself beneath the hard yew, undulating at the sight of the gathered students and the teachers before rolling off down the hall, dissintigrating anything not stable enough to maintain connection to its body.

Over the intercom, the now calmed voice of the headmaster chimed out. "Students are urged to ignore any abberrations marked down in chapters one through nine in your textbooks 'Monsters for Dummies.' Thank you, and have a nice day."

The top-hatted figure then walked to the door of his office and opened it, yanking his gorgeous secretary into the foul smelling room.

Randal "Flags" Monstrum

"Do you think I'm afraid to hurt a girl, or something? Randal said, slamming his faux sword down on the ground, nearly snapping the tip as he took a combat stance. "She's just going to use magic, anyway. Demons always do." His foot slid forward as he spoke, and he switched the sword around in his hand, holding it with the "blade" pointed down. "Now, gorgeous, I don't want to hurt you. I seriously don't. Maybe after this we can grab a bite to eat?~"

The boy suddenly dashed forward slamming the handle of the sword into where her gut should be - if she didn't move, that is- and spun, slapping her just as hard with the faux blade. "Sword fighting is so 15th century anyway."

Imdius nodded profusely to the students words, each of them working hard to sell themselves in order to gain a place in the student council. His arms were crossed with one hand on the chin, he stood on one leg with the over crossed over, resting the toes on the floor as the rest of his body still leaned back on nothing, yet another extravagant pose. Of course, he was listening but his thoughts were still on the ignorant horned demon heir which stood in front of him, simply planning on how to mess with him even further...

What grabbed Imdius' attention was Gem's small remark, thinking that he wouldn't be heard as he smiled a little. What a cheeky little bastard. Imdius thought as his face suddenly appeared in front of Gem's, staring deeply into his purple eyes. Without a single word, he stared, the rest of his body was in the same pose, just bent over to reach Gem's height. After a few moments, Imdius smiled a smile of malice as he backed up, straightening his body to reach the some pose once again.

Looking over the group of students, Imdius lowered his hands to his waist, ready to call out his decision;
"Listening to all of your stupid remarks, I've made my decision. It seems Mister Gem and Miss Brienne have gained one vote more than the rest of you. And so, according to a democracy, they win!" He narrowed his eyes towards Sen once more, throwing a cocky smile over to him before returning to the group, "Mister Gem wins the position as Leader, Miss Brienne wins the position as Treasurer/secretary!" He paused once again, looking over the group with only one more student to grab. "The rest of you should have thought more about real world politics, think of this as a learning experience. Especially when it comes to getting a job, those who speak better, earn better... The position of Co-leader is to be Xue. We want this school is be a good school, so the council should also be good. Those with experience get more." Imdius explained, clapping a little as a small celebration of the new council before waving his arms to the side, shrugging, "I know the rest of you may have experience in other things. But without explaining, we won't know. It's nice to have a 'cool' personality -or at least attempt to- but the real world doesn't care for that crap."

"You're all little shits in the eyes of those higher. If you tell them your experience and skills, instead of ignorant claims, they will view you as 'useful little shits'." With a little pause as his arms are folded once more, Imdius gestured his head towards the door. "Those of you who won the council position stay to meet the headmaster. Everyone else... get lost."




"Wait, we didn't even have a chance to say anything!" All three heads of Jodhal called out in unison, causing them to each growl at each other with disapproval,
"I don't care, you're a dog." Imdius dismissed, not even glancing over.
The three heads directed their growling towards the red demon, crouching down as if to pounce. Suddenly, Vhal's head poked up, his growl turning back to a derpy face as Imdius held up a dead rat. Dae had lost control of the body as Vhal's mentality came around to be stronger, despite his personality. Imdius opened a nearby window with his powers, allowing him to toss the rat outside. This quickly caused Vhal to react, running as fast as the body could, shrinking a little in order to fit through the window before growing back to normal after jumping through, chasing the dead rat as it somehow flew off into the distance.

ImageAiko Nozaki
Waiting by the door of the Headmaster's office with the two items laid across her outstretched arms, one on top of another, Aiko stood patiently as she waited for her cue to enter. However, standing around with such a mass of people quickly entering the room made her nervous and thus she was a little less patient, giving the door another quick tap of her glass knuckles, just incase the Headmaster didn't hear her the first time. Whilst she stood, waiting, Aiko overheard the various introductions from the new student council members, and from what she gathered the group were..quite different to one another. A demon, a harpy, a kitsune, a three-headed dog, a human-looking boy and another, slightly less human-looking boy. She learned each of their names in turn and listened to their aspirations, the demon, Sen seemed like he wanted to take control which made Aiko wonder just how powerful the demon was. She'd shudder at the thought, if she could, though fortunately Imdius seemed perfectly capable, if not a bit too capable of handling the group.

The door of the Headmaster's opening caught Aiko's attention, and she was just about to open her mouth to speak when she found herself yanked inside by the collar of her uniform. Aiko gave a soft "Eep!" as she tried not to drop the items, and then gave herself a quick once-over to make sure nothing was broken, "S-Sir, please be careful." she reminded him, knowing he could be a bit rough at times when handling her.

When the lavender-eyed boy spoke up and listed off his accomplishments, a part of Brienne's heart dipped. Surely with a resume like that, a simple forester had no chance. Momentarily, she wondered if Sen would be chosen for a spot, but something about the openly hostile way the two men treated each other cast that idea in doubt. Perhaps he was a demon as well? Tucking her fluffy black wings close to her slim body, the harpy simply waited to hear the results of the polling. Gem seemed the most logical choice for an organizer like treasurer or event planner. Why would someone so clearly close to human - one who attended a human school no less - need to be here for? A soft hmm passed between her lips. He might have donned a human glamer, but that made no sense. Shoving that idea to the side, the harpy re-focused on the events in front of her.

The mono-boy who walked in with Gem spoke up next. Xue? Brienne rolled the name around in her head a bit, trying to figure out how to spell it. She'd never been very good at foreign languages. For a kitsune, he seemed rather... lacking in the fox department. It explained the strangeness of his dress and the pale tone of his hair. Again, she wondered why he would attend a school for monsters if he could easily pass for human. Wouldn't wandering among them be a better crash-course in human culture? Making a mental note to ask about that as well, the harpy waited for someone else to give their own pitch.

Something else caught her hawk-like eye moving through the room, and she followed it with her eyes. A perfectly-proportioned girl with unreasonably flat, smooth skin. She moved just a tad strangely. Not enough to easily notice, but Brienne watched with the eyes of a hunter. The lady walked to the headmaster's door and rapped on the door a few times before being dragged suddenly inside. Odd.

Brinne's name left Imdius' mouth and she snapped her attention back to the present. Blinking stupidly for a moment, the rest of the words filtered through her brain. Really? Out of everyone here, she'd actually made it? Xue as well, though she supposed that someone with actual real-life leadership experience seemed a fairly obvious choice. Having tuned out the demon's words to watch the doll-like lady move through the room, the harpy didn't catch the third councilman's name. Probably Gem. That's who she'd have picked, anyway.

When Imdius dismissed everyone in his signature rude way, it occurred to the harpy that Sen came with the specific intent to lead the council. Reaching up, she patted him on the shoulder with one of her plush, sable wings in a friendly manner. She toned back her smile to avoid seeming arrogant or rude, but didn't put on a pitying expression. "Maybe next time, Sen. If you want, I can keep you updated on what we're doing."

The huge Cerberid jolted right past her head a moment later, distracted by something Brienne hadn't seen. Ducking reflexively, she flared her wings out, accidentally smacking both Sen and the person directly to her left with her feathers. Blustery wind generated from more than just her extending wings fanned through the room, stirred up by her instinctual magic. Straightening up, she tried to neaten her hair. "Sorry about that. Someone that large whizzing by your head isn't something easy to take in stride." The harpy's deep brown eyes snapped to her right. Mentally, she prepared herself for another lecture on not messing up Sen's hair.

* Tornadoes form when cold air and warm air combine in a set pattern: the cold air drops as the warm air rises. The warm air eventually twists into a spiral and forms the funnel cloud that we all associate with a tornado
** Xue's abilities are not Godmodding. Yes, they're strong; they also have weakness, as listed on his character sheets. Just thought I'd put that out there before anyone says I am. :)




The black-haired girl tapped on the door to the Headmaster's office again. Xue discretely sniffed the air, again trying to identify what exactly her scent was of. The lack of blood in the scent was just plain strange, he could see her right in front of him after all. Her scent was of death and earth, with a bit of that dusty scent libraries had. Strange creature, whatever she was. He saw the door open, and the girl was yanked inside with a squeak, coming back out a few seconds later. Xue heard a key turn in the lock, and them the Headmaster started muttering to himself, the sound muffled by the door. The Kitsune couldn't help but wonder if the Headmaster was completely right in the head, before turning back to the small crowd.

Xue recognized the malicious intent on the red-haired teacher's face as he smirked at the arrogant dark-haired boy again, wondering just what the kid had done previous to this that had put him on Idmus' bad side. Whatever it was, the result was quite entertaining. And then Xue made the mistake of glancing out the window, towards the trees of his natural habitat, and consequentially, the lawn strip right in front of the window. His teal eyes flew wide, hearing Idmus begin speaking again in the background. "Listening to all of your stupid remarks, I've made my decision. It seems Mister Gem and Miss Brienne have gained one vote more than the rest... Mister Gem wins the position as Leader, Miss Brienne wins the position as Treasurer/secretary... The position of Co-leader is to be Xue... nice to have a 'cool' personality -or at least attempt to- but the real world doesn't care for that crap... Those of you who won the council position stay to meet the headmaster. Everyone else, get lost." The teacher rambled at length, the words fading in and out since most of Xue's mind was elsewhere - namely watching out the window, at some kind of... creature... slowly passed the window on the ground outside, leaving a trail of slime. Seriously, what the hell was that thing out there?! He caught the gist of what the teacher was saying, though. But damn that thing out there was creepy. He had a very fox-like urge to chase it out of curiosity.

He was brought out of the shocked trance by something smacking him in the face, and for just one detrimental moment, lost the strict control he always had some little piece of his concentration devoted to. His aura exploded outward, plunging the room down into single digit temperatures, the warmer air and wave of colder air colliding and basically making a layer of miniature tornado as the shockwave created spread outwards; meanwhile everything the shockwave touched immediately iced over and the glass pane beside him, unable to take the sudden freezing pressure, completely shattered, along with the lightbulb overhead.

Mentally berating himself for allowing his control to slip like that, Xue immediately pulled his Youkai aura back in, forcing it to stay under his skin. Less than a second had passed - he had net even fully finished the movement of balancing himself after whatever hit him had passed by. The technique was useful in more ways than one - not only did it prevent others with a sixth sense from being able to feel his presence, but it also prevented him from accidentally freezing anyone to death. Aura firmly under control again, the room began to warm back to the uncomfortable high temperature that most considered normal.

Xue looked up, stilling in place as he saw the expressions with varying levels of shock plastered on them, staring at him silently. For a good few moments, no one said anything, the hall deathly still but for the sound of dripping water as the ice began to melt in the returning normal temperature. The broken light fixture over his head fizzed a few sparks.

"Er... sorry. Lost my concentration." Xue attempted.

Image 'Heheheh I got it'. A victorious snarl curled from Gem's thoughts becoming a satisfied smile shown on his face. Of course he got it. He was bound to after all he carried more with him than fluff and a cocky attitude. Gem was a genius. His greatest achievement this round was playing nice with Xue. "He decided it this time around. If anyone else had met him first I'd have lost."

Gem turned towards Xue, finding it appropriate to show his appreciation towards his vote only to be hit with a blast of icy air. Glass exploded violently, followed quickly by the burst of the light bulb flinging glass into Gem's fragile all too human-like flesh. Gem flinched and staggered back feeling frost form on minute hairs along his arm as he covered his face. Blood trickled from points at which tiny shards buried themselves into his skin. "Fuck!" He cursed.

Veins popped out at his temples and around his eyes as his ghoulish nature switched to self defense at the drop of a hat. The color seemed to have been drained from his face and hair giving both a dull dead look while his eyes became black marbles painted with small maddened looking red pupils. He grimaced bearing a row of jagged shark-like teeth that seemed to fit together like a puzzle when he chomped down and became flesh tearing saw blades when ground together. Glass glittered in the air as it fell from his skin like sparkle dust powder, shoved out of his skin as it healed. He shook his head, the bones in his neck crackling like firewood as he glared sidelong at Xue a playful grin on his lips. He very clearly wasn't the same Gem that gave him friendly tips on greeting before.

"Oi oi oi, that's dangerous, Xue you could hurt somebody." He said in a quiet, taunting tone. "Such power, you might blow half the school away." He swayed on his feet before squeezing his eyes shut as if trying to remember something at the tip of his tongue. Gradually the color came back to his face and he shook his head. Gem took a breath still looking a bit pale and resigned to staring into space for the moment, not bothering to explain his sudden switch. "Such a pain." He muttered to no one, making no sense to anyone but himself. In his head replayed a moment that never occured, the moment when he'd leapt across the room to bury his teeth into Xue's throat, snarling threats and insults as he burrowed his fingers into the open wounds, clinging to him like a giant spider feeling his very fingers grow stiff as near instant frostbite crawled from their tips.

After a moment passed he spoke up. "Is everyone alright?" By then another teacher seemed to have made their appearance drawn in by burst that had come from Xue. He stared nonplussed by her appearance that the strange barbed tail she used to catch the falling light fixture that had previously blown glass into Gem's face.

#, as written by Ky-Lin
Rook was a bit sad that he didnt make it on the council, his impression had always been that it usually consisted of quite a few people and not just three. But never the less at least he could still use this as a reason on why he was late and not because he was true to his nature and looking at his nicely organized hoard in his dorm room. Honestly it was just now occurring to him that there had been another bed there and he probably had a roommate. He would need to go back soon to move his things or just leave them there and see how the other felt. He would fight for the wardrobe though, fight to the death over it really since it was a lot nicer looking than the closet. While some of the others displayed reactions to the very sudden decision about who made it and who didnt he had been lost in thought about maybe redecorating. So his reaction to the sudden glass of death attack was one more of annoyance than that of fear or surprise.

The cold he hadnt even noticed, he was a silver dragon, his kind relished in the cold and technically were more powerful in it. It was something that always felt nice, relaxing, and made his blood swim with call from his ancestors.It really had been a long time since he had been nice and cold since everywhere was just always warming up so easily. But the smell of fear from one of the others had the blood from his mothers side of the family race loudly in his ears. He couldnt help it, Rooks eyes started to look like his natural eyes as he started to transform back. He smelled delicious, he smelled so warm, and it smelled like prey ready for the taking with little fight. Rook stood and started to make his way to "Gem" or whatever when he was snapped back by the appearance of what seemed to be another teacher. It surprised him enough to calm himself enough to look more human again, the scales on the back of his neck and his eyes turning back to how he liked them. Looking around from a moment Rook shrugged before softly putting his hand on Gem's shoulder. With a smile he said "Congratulations on getting Leader, I hope you find it fun.

Academically, Sen wasn't really that strong. Physically though he was a quite powerful demon with much hidden talent waiting to be unlocked. Because of his I don't care unless it's fun attitude, he wasn't very smart or battle smart either. It was why he was sent to the school in the first place, his father was disappointed in how far Sen hadn't come. He was a spoiled brat really who could get what ever he wanted. Well, not anymore, his father had really just thrown him into the deep end, thrown him into an environment he had never experienced before.

Randomly, a three headed dog beast entered the room which caught him off guard. Compared to Cerberus these three seemed like pups to him. They were an interesting trio. And now it seemed the meeting on deciding the student council members, could start.

Sen stood there, letting all eyes fall on him from his statement which he found nothing wrong with. He stood up straight, arms crossed, it was obvious he was very confident, too confident. Very cocky and rude. Thinking leading the student council would be a quick way out of the school seeing as how he knew his dad would be checking on him from his home. If his dad saw how well he could lead, he thought he'd pull him out of this dump. The Demon watched the red haired Demon, waiting for his response. He seemed like a smart ass really, a wise guy, someone who loved to joke and tease others and Sen at the moment hated that. He raised a brow at the Demon, wondering when he was going to stop showing off. Until he finally spoke, to Sen. So his name was Imdius. "Little boy??" Sen muttered. That was quite belittling and annoying. He had been called something belittling twice now today and it was getting on his nerves. He simply glared at Imdius. He knew if he acted his usual self right now, his dad would send someone to privately kick his ass. However it wouldn't be hard for Sen to forget this and do something stupid.

The Harpy, Brienne then spoke up and attempted to impress the teacher. He was quite surprised by her courage to speak out in front of everyone, she didn't seem like the type. Then again she had no trouble speaking to himself earlier. A smile almost formed on his face with admiration, as if he was the cause of her selling herself like that. Or perhaps it was something else that made him want to smile? Wait no, Sen you are a broody brat. Yes, he furrowed his brow, a bit intimidated by how much Brienne had to offer. He was starting to re-think how he opened himself. He didn't think it would be that hard really, he certainly underestimated everyone. Sen noticed however, that the Harpy's feathers were now fluffed up; so she was nervous after all, but she certainly hid it well.

Another student spoke up, one he hadn't paid much attention to when he first entered the room. Well hadn't paid attention to really anyone really but anyway. He looked very human but Sen's senses said otherwise. There was more behind that composed mask he wore. And those purple eyes, how alluring they were. He watched him carefully as he stood up, shook Imdius's hand and that last part. That was what Sen was looking for. Of course he could hear what he said clearly. But it was true, he had to admit being a Demon himself, all he wanted to do was be entertained and have fun. Which is why his father threw him at the school. Yeah it would be a while before he got over that. Sen couldn't take his eyes off the male, Gem Kenji he introduced himself as. But he also hated how much he talked himself up. Even more than the Harpy. "Show off.." He muttered under his breath, looking at the guy now with a bit of a snarl. It was obvious that Sen was growing quite jealous of the students around him and he didn't know how to socialise really and win the love or interest of others. He really didn't know what to do with all these different kinds of people besides act like a dick to them unless they were kissing his ass. Anyway, Imdius didn't react aggressively like he had thought he would, he simply stared into the male's eyes with a bit of a creepy smile then sat back up without a word. He was probably used to it.

Another spoke up with a statement simple like his own. Volunteering to be secretary. He was an interesting looking guy, he was quiet and straight forward it seemed; he kept to himself but seemed quite happy. Sen didn't know what to think of him, he was quite mysterious really and he hadn't mentioned his name yet either. Come to think of it neither had Sen.

Just when he had thought everyone had spoken, another spoke up. He had kept himself hidden in the shadows until now; he had striking features that were quite attractive in his opinion. His snow white hair and crystal blue eyes, it was hard not to stare. Sen turned slightly where he stood to get a better look of him and watched him as he spoke. Xue the Alpha Pup of the Western Kitsune Tribe? He didn't know whether he should feel intimidated by the fact there was someone of similar social status to himself. Or if he should feel relieved that there was someone who would understand him and his situation. The more he spoke though the more Sen learned of how he felt about this guy. Why wouldn't someone of his status not want to be the leader? Was he being humble or did he think he was too good to be leader of something so little as the student council? Sen was confused a lot when it came to others intentions, he had to remember not everyone was as cold as himself.

He now found that Xue was an intimidating character in the sense he was a threat to Sen. And he had to admit it struck a nerve when he bluntly put out his opinion on who he thought should be the other members. Sen simply glared at him. How could he not think Sen would be the best option to be part of the student council?

Sen randomly could smell something quite foul, alcohol and eggs? That had been fossilised then brought back from the dead. A very distasteful smell. He wrinkled his nose, unaware of the strange thing that caused the smell and once it slipped away the smell was gone. How odd, he thought, too distracted by the situation at hand to pay it any more attention.

And then, finally, what Sen had been waiting for. Imdius started speaking and announced who would have what position and was part of the student council. "What?!" Sen exclaimed, surprised that someone of his class wouldn't be the leader of the council. "He's going to be the leader??" He simply looked from Imdius then to Gem, simply shocked and surprised. And very annoyed. Although he hadn't to admit them three were the better choice, he was still bummed about not getting what he wanted. It really punch a hole through his pride. Sen didn't really know what else to say, he still couldn't believe a fellow Demon would choose them over the soon to be Prince. All he could do was give everyone dirty looks.

Sen felt something pat him on the shoulder which pulled him out of his vicious thoughts for a moment. He looked to his side and noticed the Harpy was trying to comfort him. He didn't care about any other position of the council, he just wanted to be the leader, so he wasn't cross with Brienne, mainly Gem. And the teacher. He let a short, slight smile slip through before feeling a bit belittled by the fact he needed comforting from a Harpy. It was difficult for Sen not to look down on others. His smile faded, he didn't say anything in reply for a moment, he was just silent. Until Imdius caused the three headed dog to leap out the window. "I'm surrounded by idiots..." He said out loud to himself, feeling the need to face palm at the dogs well, dog like behaviour. He shouldn't have thought highly of the beast to begin with considering its appearance and obvious qualities, the way it spoke and acted, it really was like a big pup. In reaction to the beast however, he felt something suddenly smack him in the face. The Harpy's wing lowered and a quite frozen expression was revealed. He wasn't expecting that and it surprised him; wide eyed as his expression slowly changed to very annoyed. "God dammit Brienne!" It was a bit humorous he had to admit, although he didn't show he was amused. Sen once more fixed up his hair, removing strands that had gotten caught in his mouth and entangled around his set of horns. He calmed himself then grinned at the Harpy. "It's alright, guess I should get used to it." He didn't exactly want her to think he was a complete grump.

It was then that Sen felt a sudden change in temperature. The following events happened so quickly he honestly didn't know how to react to it. He wasn't afraid nor hurt, even if he had been struck by glass or zapped slightly with electricity, simple things like that didn't really hurt him as much as others. Perhaps all the action happening around him distracted him from any true pain, adrenalin kicking in. He was in a defensive mode as he looked around the room to see the cause. His eyes landed on Xue who managed to quickly get control of his abilities, is powerful outburst. Sen looked around at the others, curious of their reaction and condition; most were shocked while Gem was changing to something he hadn't expected of him. So that was what was hidden behind that delicate human-like face. Sen smirked at the male as he too held himself back, letting out words unnatural for what everyone thought of him. The other quiet male in the room suddenly approached Gem with quite hungry eyes. Sen watched, interested in what he was going to do, seeing how he was interested in the blood coming from Gem's face. However to Sen's surprised, he simply congratulated him, composing himself. The Demon raised a brow until he noticed the teacher he had spoken to earlier comforting Xue and also stopping quite the hazard with her long tail. He always saw her as quite the strong figure when he first met her and even more so now as she was not fazed by the hazard, keeping eye contact with Xue.

Everything died down and everyone seemed calm once more. Sen simply stood there with his arms crossed. "Wow. I thought I had problems. No wonder my dad sent me here." He said out loud to no one in particular. Letting out a sigh he followed Beau's words and left the room. "What ever. I'm going to my dorm." And with that he was gone. Uncertain if he really wanted to go to his dorm or to class, he didn't know where either were so, it depended on which he found first.

Smacking someone in the face, she'd prepared for. Enduring words, she'd also prepared for. After all, how much could relative strangers possibly know about her to make their words effective? What happened over the next few seconds threw any confidence about every person in the room out the same window that cerberid vanished through. She briefly heard part of Sen's words before a frigid chill swept up through the wing that collided with Xue's body. Like the birds they resembled, harpies had an average body temperature of degrees 40 Celsius, or 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Direct contact with a blast of air below freezing sent her entire wing numb. Also unlike humans, her thin legs lacked thick musculature to keep her body light and aerodynamic. All great for flying. Not so great when being bulldozed by a super-cooled aura. Veins and arteries wound around hollow bones and close to the thin, scaled skin of her legs and feet. Whether it was simply her proximity to the blast, or her more more fragile physiology, the harpy's legs also immediately went numb and stiff, right up to the part where her bird legs seamlessly melded into her human body at the upper thigh. Her right wing felt mostly fine, as did her torso. Glass from the shattered window barely missed her, but the light fixture's sharp shrapnel slammed into her numbed shoulder. Blood oozed from the cuts sluggishly.

When the aura retreated, her iced skin burned from the rapid temperature change. Clamping her jaws firmly shut and furrowing her brow to keep silent, Brienne did her best to make it as inconspicuous as possible that she still couldn't feel her legs. Unfortunately, life has a tendency to kick you in the (in this case metaphorical) nuts whenever it can. Moving her wing to try and brush away some of the glass embedded in her feathered skin proved enough to unbalance her, and she tumbled over backwards, falling onto her ass. At least she didn't land on more glass.

Again, the next things that happened passed by almost too fast for her to form an opinion on them. The lavender-eyed guy's countenance twisted into something absolutely inhuman. Gem metamorphized into something even more monochrome than Xue, his eyes shifting to a deep pitch with crimson pupils. They shined, almost glassy, with an emotion she didn't even want to place. When he opened his mouth to speak, visions of sharks and other deep-sea creatures came to mind. A valley of knives scraped against each other in his maw. That definitely explained why he attended a school for monsters. Brienne's dark eyes opened wide, and she scooted herself backwards with her working wing, dragging her legs and body along with it.

Like a phantom, Bellatroix appeared in the area. Bending from her huge height to look the kitsune in the eye, she gave off a vibe different from her appearance. Taking a moment to place it, the harpy realized it reminded her somewhat of a leech, though she couldn't tell why. Above them, the light fixture creaked again, then outright fell out of the ceiling. For fuck's sake. Snakelike, Bellatroix's tail snapped out from her back and grappled the thing before it even hit the ground... without looking at it. Brienne paled visibly, the strangeness of everything taking away from the pain in her shoulder.

Right. The harpy decided to leave everything after 'joining student council' out of her letter home. To her right, Sen said something that she missed most of, more preoccupied with everything falling apart around her. She waved a friendly goodbye to him, determined to not seem weak in front of people so much more powerful than herself. "Bye, Sen! I'll see you later."

With that taken care of, the harpy stared at her legs. The split second of frigid wind put her out of commissioned that easily? Rubbing at one with her non-frozen wing, Brienne took stock of her other wing. Not just cold, but pain radiated out of the spot where she'd contacted with Xue's face. Feeling slowly leeched back into that shoulder and further down the limb, and the harpy pulled it closer to her face. Pausing trying to warm her legs back up, she noticed that ever since she'd fallen down, she'd begun shivering slightly. Not for the first time, she wished harpies had an easier time regulating their body temperature. Temperate environs were the only ones that worked well for them. Poking around through her left-hand feathers with her right wing, she eventually put eyes on the aching part of her wing. The skin there turned an angry red shade that spread across a few inches at the least.

Tired of sitting on the ground, Brienne shook her left wing until the most of the feeling returned. With a few strong flaps (that pushed her a bit further from the group) she lifted off. Trying to keep the wind from her wingbeats contained proved mostly futile. Each flap sent a jolt of pain through her arm. Suddenly she remembered the glass shard poking out of her shoulder. With her wings busy keeping her from landing on the ground again, the harpy turned to the last tool she had. Turning her head at an awkward angle, she reached her tongue out to turn the shard a bit, then gripped it with her teeth. Yanking it out tore the cut a bit wider. Spitting the bloody glass shard out on the ground, Brienne awkwardly waited.
