Emotion Expansion:
Etelka has the magical power to make an entity experience a feeling in greater amounts. If a target is in pain or sad, she can make that pain crippling or them depressed. In order to make the person feel the change Etelka must be able to look into their eyes, and once she can she their eyes she must draw her own blood, which she usually does by chomping down on her lip. By drawing more and more of her blood she makes the emotion amplify more.
Black Wand:
Etelka carries around a metal rod, if she draws an immense amount of blood using the tool, her own or otherwise, it will become a suit of armor and a spear. Her Black Armor gives her physical strength and speed vastly beyond that achievable through any human means, and it heightens her reaction time and durability as well. The Black Armor will revert to its original form after around twenty minutes.

"I attend a school for misbehaving demons, yet I've only killed pathetic mages who don't deserve a demon."





Romantic Interest
Everyone, currently on one in particular.

Character Opinions
Hanako Minami: Given the title of the Lady or the Mistress. While only not killing Hanako due to respect of the Headmaster and teachers, Etelka does serve the Lady with unwavering loyalty. Minami's insistence that Etelka is not a slave is tedious to her, she doesn't see any roles for herself other then servant or one to cull the weak. The only orders that Lady Minami issues that Etelka will not follow are ones that directly contradict the rules of Ervin.
Kou Usagi: The first demon Etelka has every had a positive relation with. She cares for the rabbit girl and respects Kou's wishes to protect her, but is terrified that one person she likes in this academy will be tortured like her. Her protective personality brings up clouded hard to decipher and painful memories. Kou's wondrous body is painful reminder that Etelka can barely contain her urges at this point.
Hive: Intense dislike, the rebellious trickster that worked under Ervin with her. She blames Hive for making her ever put distrust in Ervin, and therefore make the punishments she was given worse. He is blamed for a number of scars on her body, this rebellious pet of Ervin's is simply not fit to serve demons or live in Etelka's mind. Most importantly Hive is a direct reminder of Ervin, and thinking of Ervin too much or too intently threatens the delicate balance of her psyche, making Hives presence beyond terrible for her mentally.

History
Etelka was born to the service of a mage in Hungary, from the beginning of her life that see remembers she served under Ervin Lantos, who named her in his liking. Ervin was a powerful mage who had absolute dominion over his five demon subjects, while he used the other four for various tasks Etelka knew little of, she herself was left in the castle Ervin owned. She has throughout her life assumed Ervin was an otherwise good man who used his great magic powers to defend from the fowl forces that threatened the region, however from him she only experienced physical and sexual abuse. Despite being a demon she acted as little more then a maid, she matured must faster then human and by age five she was in the same form as she is in today.
She served Ervin tirelessly and constantly, if he was pleased with what she had done during the day he would leave her be at night, if not then he would directly control her and force Etelka to lash her own back for an hour. When home Ervin was nothing less then a man full of sick twisted fetishes, he clearly had no interests in teaching Etelka to harness her magical skills or using her in the field, he had plenty of others for that. The other demons that served under Ervin also treated Etelka rather poorly, as a weak runt of the litter, telling her she was useless as a weakling, destined to serve a pathetic life of pain for being so powerless. Etelka took this all to heart, giving her the view that strength is what defines a person, and anyone she could defeat is hardly worthy of living.
Four months after Etelka had reached the age of twenty-two her lord Ervin passed due to illness of the heart, leaving her with little place to be. She had left the castle almost none during her service, the sunlight went as far as to irritate her skin and she could barely see in it. Etelka spent another month in the castle after the other demons had already departed, she continued to go about her daily routine as if she didn't she would once again be punished, she was in fact afraid to stop. One day a mage who had come to study under Ervin arrived in the castle, her master had apparently died silently not notifying other powerful mages. The student saw Etelka and began to decide to dominate her, she felt an overwhelming disdain for this mage. She had grown used to the power Ervin controlled, this student couldn't even hold her back, she jabbed him in the gut with her Black Wand, and then using what she knew of her powers, began to increase the pain. She slit her wrist and watched the student roll on the ground in pain from the jab he had received, eventually his weak body died of shock just as Etelka became light headed from blood loss.
Feeling brave after dealing with a mage she adventured out, mages tried to tame her but they failed to earn her respect. She would give them a simple injury then bleed herself. Eventually the stronger mages caught wind of this misbehaving demon and went to bring it to the academy, and to their surprise she put up not fight to them. Anyone clearly stronger then Etelka she respected, anyone she felt weaker she wanted to teach as Ervin taught her, painfully. Unfortunately the is hardly the attitude the academy wants their demons to have.

Other
Etelka cannot see well in full sunlight, she also has a very high pain tolerance despite her petite appearance. Despite hating those weaker then her she just in general has an insatiable lust for sex.

So begins...

It is almost twilight now, when the horizon is covered with a deep orange color. Yet, a long day for everyone has almost passed and to Midora, the end of today marks the beginning of a new challenge tomorrow, not only for him, but for all the new transfer students and the new teachers that had been assigned to work here in the Academy. Being a Headmaster was something that he'd never thought that he'd do in his life, but asides from him, no one is willing to take the responsibility now, which is why he has to stepped up for the role.

Slowly made his way to the main classroom, where all the new transfer students were requested to gather and wait until the Headmaster arrived to induce them about their time at the Academy. They should have began the first day of training since yesterday, yet because of that incident, it has to be delayed, but now it can be started and actually Midora felt quite good about it, though he didn't admit. Standing before the closed door, Midora took a deep breath. He has never thought that he'd stepped into this position and what's more, he hasn't prepared properly for all of this just yet, but Midora knew that he has to do this.

I've overcomed a lot of hardship in my life, so this time, I definitely have to, for everyone's sakes. With that thought, he opened the door and stepped in, gaining everyone's attention. Midora then walked towards the teacher's desk at the front. First, he looked around to see if everyone is already there or not. It seems that two students are missing. He cleared his throat and then began to speak loudly. His facial expression is still calm, cold and stoic like usual.

"Greetings, students. My name is Midora Kurayami, the newly appointed Headmaster of this Academy. Because of the incident that has happened a few days ago, we have to transfered away most of the new batch of students along with their appointed teachers. At the same time, we also received new transfer students, which are 10 individuals sitting in front of me right now. As you all have known from the introduction papers that we've given you when you arrived, you'll be divided into 4 groups and each group will consist of 1 mage and 2 demons. The group that each of you'll be in has also included in the papers."

He paused a bit to let his word sink in, and then continue, "From tomorrow, the days of training at the Academy will begin. I hope that you all will try your best and achieve good results." Midora then looked at the clock on the wall, "For now, please make your way to your dorms, where you'll rest for the day. The supervising teachers for each group shall be introduced by the first lesson tomorrow. I suggest you all try to get acquaintance with each other and don't cause any troubles. Class dismisses. Have a nice evening, everyone."

With that said, Midora moved away from the desk to the door. "Oh, and one more thing," as Midora remembered something, he turned back to the students, "all of your belongings had been sent to your rooms. You've been informed which room you'll be staying at."

After saying that, Midora turned his back and closed the door behind his back then made his way to the teachers' room, where all the newly appointed teachers are waiting for him.

Sitting at the round table in the teachers' room along with his two new collegues, Mikari tapped his finger on the table as he waited his best buddy comeback after the induction with the students. He lazily gazed outside the windows and then looked up at the clock. It almost dark by now, hope that we can get this over with so I can get some rest before tomorrow.

Staring at the scenery outside, Mikari silently let out a sigh. Though at first he was quite optimistic about this whole teacher thingy, but he has never been a teacher before. So he is somewhat nervous about this, but not much. Midora has stated that he has what it takes, but can he managed to do it well? Mikari knows that he only needed to try his best.

He then turned to his fellow demon teachers, "Dora-chin will be here any moments after his greetings with the transfer students. Are you ladies ready to find out which groups we'll be taking care of?" He asked with a smile.




A short while later, Midora arrived at the teachers' room. He gently slided the door opened and greeted his fellow teachers, who are seemingly waiting for him. He walks in and then sat in the middle of them.

"Alright then," He spoke up to the two female demons, "Asides from Mikari here, I guess that you two don't really know me just yet. Let me introduce myself again. My name is Midora Kurayami and I'm a Dark Mage. I've just got appointed to be the new Headmaster of this Academy. Hope that we'll work well together."

"Hehe, there's nothing that my little Dora-chin can't do, eh?" Mikari said jokingly.

"Anyway, I've decided which groups that each of you will be handle," Midora said as he reached out for a drawer and took out the detailed profiles of the students and handed them to his collegues, "Mikari, you'll be taking charge of group 4, Ms. Embla will be taking charge of group 1, Ms. Sarah will be group 2 and I will take group 3. Please take a look at their profiles first and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. And it seems that there was one student that went missing in Ms. Embla's group and my group also missing one but we can keep carry on without them. Hopefully there'll be some new replacements soon." But just as Mikari was about to raised his arm and ask, Midora bluntly cut in, "Not you, Mikari."

"Aw, not fair. Always so meanie." Mikari pouted then glance at the profiles of his group.

#, as written by Jedly


The boy leaned back in the crudely furnished seat of the cab, tipping the rim of a cup to usher a beverage down his throat. He savored every bitter drop of the drink, as if it was ambrosia, issued to him by the holy deities. Though his capabilities in the art of brewing may be on par with gods, it was only a mere cup of espresso. But it helped Shio get through the day, a minute source of energy which spurred his jovial persona. A caffeinated Shiore was a happy Shiore. But angered emotions have never taken form within his heart, as he always walks- or, more so, leaps and skips through life with a happy attitude. He was barely unable to bottle his own excitement, as one could only burst with exhilaration on the first day of school. The only rain on his parade of joy was the lack of caution governing the taxi’s driver. Somehow, the man behind the wheel had not ran over any innocent pedestrians, but the same could not be said for a few rodents making a break for the other side of the road. "What happens when the chicken tries to cross the road? This man happens!” He thought to himself as the cabin of the automobile shook again.

To pass the time and shut out this man’s massacre on animals, Shiore slipped on his pair of comfy headphones, bushy with foam. He cuffed his hand around a cellular device burrowed in his pocket, and brought it into eyesight. With a few flicks of a finger, the boy skimmed through the diverse amount of choices, finally settling on a number from an OST of a series he recently watched. A perfect piece to soothe his cheerful charisma, whilst keeping an upbeat tune. A sigh of relief escaped his lips as he loosened his shoulders, finding refuge in the song. As the cab passed roadside views, which changed within the blink of an eye, Furawa began a practice he was very accustomed to at this point. Within an quick movement of his wrist, an enigma was created in the palm of his hand. His eyes gravitated towards the projection as it took form, flawlessly molding a ball of light into existence. Within a few moments, a downscaled model of a sun floated elegantly before him. It was a mimic of the father star of the very solar system he inhabited. But by no means did it emit the same amount of heat that the burning ball of gas. It wasn’t even made of hydrogen, just a simple projection he mentally presented, to himself, and if wished, to those around him. But he didn’t want to distract his driver from his murder spree, so he was left to solely bask in his creation’s glory.

A few deceased rodents later

Shio breathed out of respite when the cab finally pulled up to the academy. Still somewhat traumatized by the amount of bodies the cab driver had piled up on the way to their destination. To say the least, the man did not receive as gracious of a tip. ”All of those poor little guys… They never saw what hit them.” He wallowed with remorse for a moment, before he was able to regain his composure, a group of bellhops instantly assessed the cab and popped the car’s trunk. Working as a monotonous cohort, they perfectly packed his belongings. They must be quite the adversaries in jenga. As they made their departure, most likely for his dorm, he decided to follow suit and proceed to the predestined meeting area. Which, not surprisingly, was their main classroom. Before he embarked on his great journey, he quickly sent a message to a friend of his. ”Oi, Yume-kun! Are you almost here? Better not be sleeping in the taxi!” And with that, he finally began his trek.

With a brochure holding his hand, like a parent guiding an innocent toddler, the student stumbled at every turn, and nearly fell into a trance with every gust of wind. The campus, in essence, was utterly captivating and beautiful, something cut out of a fantasy. It had been maintained with arduous precision, grime and dust had been relentlessly cleansed from every nook and cranny. His eyes darted vigorously from angle to angle, as his brain tried to intake every aspect the institution had to offer. His ebullience was flowing to the brim, almost bringing him to tip into a turmoil of uncontrollable joy. Shiore lead himself to the classroom, navigating through the halls of the seemingly complex academy. Though he isn’t a miracle worker, he managed to ascertain some luck and arrived at what he presumed was the correct room.

When he eased the door open, all which was presented to him was a scene void of life. But the lights were already illuminating the room, which meant that somebody had made their way through this area. He ran a hand through his cerulean hair, contemplating his next action. He ended up finding resolve with pulling out a seat, then fastened himself in it. Shiore leaned forward over the table, resting on his elbows as he hummed to the song blasting in his headphones. To pass the time, he chose to create something a little more extravagant than the basic projection from earlier. With a similar arm motion, he created the vast galaxy which was the Milky Way. Based around the aforementioned knowledge he gained from the endless amount of books he has read front to back, he was able to zoom into certain solar systems, and observe their contents. But the only completely detailed portions of the dioramas were the suns. The planets were just mere little dots of rock, as nothing about them except the amount of them per sun were known. The clicking of the door knob notified Shiore that more students had finally arrived. With a swift balling of his fist, the minescule projection imploded on itself, dissipating into nothing.

The boy perked up as his classmates began to file into the classroom. Though no words were exchanged, his eyes shined exuberantly, with brightness which would shroud any star. ”Which of them are my group mates? I hope they like coffee, or are relatively nice! Wonder if they are ok with hugs~?” A flood of queries flowed through his mind, but would have to be left unanswered until after their greeter’s speech. And who else was to give them the rundown but the headmaster himself? The man looked pretty young, uncommon in those who operate scholastic institutions. His words were succinct and brief, but were also somewhat vague at the same time. Shiore was left to imagine what pertained to his training, or what kind of exercises he would be put through. He loathed anything overly extraneous. And knowing his luck, there would be a good amount of such an activity. Upon his departure, he notified the students that they were left to their own devices. Though he wanted to catch up with Akumu, sorting through his belongings took priority. Besides, the demon would probably make a beeline for his room and crash in his bed instantly. With a single motion, he pushed himself away from the table and proceeded to his dorm room. Perhaps his assigned dormmates would strike up a conversation with the twig-like boy on the way there? He tightened the scarf around his neck, finding refuge in its comfortableness.

Akumu sat in the taxi cab. as he was waiting for the taxi to get to his new school, he put on some music and started to sleep. after a while in the taxi Akumu woke up to the sound of his phone it was from his friend Shio he wasn't surprised that it was from him because he gets massages from him most of the time, it didn't really bother him and he was ok with it , Akumu texted back on his phone "I'm nearly there don't worry." Akumu tried to go back to sleep but it wasn't a great success because the taxi driver was listening to loud rock music. after a while he finally succeeded in sleeping with a smile on his face.


Akumu yawned loudly. as he started to wake up, he could hear voices in the room he was in"Where am I."Akumu was still have asleep so he didn't know what was going. he started going to sleep again till he hit the desk with his head "never mind I want to go back to sleep." Akumu tried to go back to sleep but the voices where to loud so he couldn't get back to sleep. so he decided to stay awake. he stared at people and sighed"Well I hope I can sleep here."he noticed Shio but the rest where complete strangers to him. after a while of the students talking, the headmaster walked in and started talking about some school stuff that Akumu never really listens too but this time he did. after the headmaster had finished his speech. Akumu decided to walk to the dorms to put his stuff there "I wonder who will be my dormmate." speaking to himself as he walked to the dorm

(Edit: Sorry I didn't have a very good original post. I was rushed and wanted to get something in.)

Kasumi stepped out of the black car and pulled three bags out with her. The black car pulled away as K examined the front gates. She was awed briefly, but soon the felling passed and she entered the Academy.

She handed the bags to a waiting man at the front door and padded down the hall. Pulling out a crisp white note, she looked at the neat black writing. Akumu Yume and Hive were the two demons she was paired with, apparently. Hmm, Akumu. She'd heard the name before... Ah yes. The demon who trapped people in dreams. She remembered from her lessons via scrying.

Finally arriving in a classroom, she entered. Upon seeing other students sitting around, she assumed that this was the right rom and took a seat as far as she could get. No use in socializing quite yet.

"Greetings, students. My name is Midora Kurayami, the newly appointed Headmaster of this Academy."

The Headmaster's speech was short and to the point. Thankfully. K had no interest in idle chatter. She walked out with the rest of the students, not engaging in conversation or even eye contact. Sure, she'd been invited, but this school probably couldn't teach her much more. She'd learned a lot from the scryed school.

"Oh, and one more thing. All of your belongings have been sent to your rooms. You've been informed which room you'll be staying at."

She glanced at the small paper again and nodded. She hoped she wouldn't get lost. Wouldn't that be embarrassing...

She wondered briefly who her dorm-mates were, but pushed aside the thought as she entered a large dorm room. From the emptiness she assumed she was first to arrive. She took the center bunk and noticed her bags neatly near the door. She retrieved them and laid them on the soft, plain sheets.

Nothing to do but to wait, I assume... She said in her mind as she surveyed the room. Basic room, just a door off to the side that she assumed was a bathroom. She wondered when her dorm-mates would arrive. The Nightmare King and the Hive... Wouldn't this be exciting.

Who'd be taming who, she wasn't sure.

Etelka Lantos

She scanned her eyes across the classroom while waiting, most of the demons seemed oddly optimistic about this whole thing. It hadn't been a thing she had even considered until she was taken to the academy, demons who had never had a mage. The history of everyone was hardly any of her concern, she would wait for a teacher to assign a group to her and she would serve them, even if she did not respect them. Etelka wholeheartedly believed whatever mage was her knew master would be some sort of twig she would normally toy with before killing, but with the stronger mages around it was hardly a good idea to murder these students.

When the teacher came into the room she felt conflicted, the man of course commanded her absolute respect due to the sheer power he could feel from him, but that power was to the source of her confliction. The black haired headmaster gave her the same feeling of impending doom and soul crushing power her had felt from Ervin, yet it felt held back by, he felt stronger then and weaker then Ervin at the same time, this man interested her intensely. Etelka concluded to herself that would pursue her keen interest in the man as long as acceptable, but for now she had his orders to follow, go to her dorm.

Deciding now not being the time to mingle with random students Etelka made a straight course to her dorm, clearly arriving faster then her new companions. She made sure all of 'her' belongings had been taken to her new quarters, most hadn't unfortunately as many of them were trinkets that belonged to mages past their living days. Her two spare dresses and the pack of juice she had on her at the time wear neatly placed on the desk. Etelka slid out her desk chair and grabbed herself a drink, which she sat drinking in silence while staring at the door with her legs crossed and face straight.

Etelka stared at the little mage girl who rolled into her dorm, the girl was entirely unassuming and dull. She made a bland introduction before wheeling herself over to asses the imported belongings. After a short delay her next message came through, her name and more exchanged pleasantries. Hanako Minami, everything about her being the one Etelka was to serve under bothered her. This mage was of course of novice, she was told to expect no less, but it must have been some sort of brave gesture from the teachers to pair this girl who couldn't even walk with a demon who had a history of murdering weaklings. She would not kill the mage, luckily enough for her, even if she had no sort of respect for Hanako, it is an order from one of higher power to serve this mage and she would follow.

Standing from her seat Etelka strode across the dorm and stood beside Hanako, she glossed over the girls belongings, then around the room. Letting out a small sigh Etelka reach past Hanako and began to grab up clothes, then walking over to the closest and hanging them neatly. "Lady Minami, that is what I shall call you," it came out casually as she worked, but was followed up before letting wheelchair girl get a word in.

"The way you said 'work together' I fear you don't understand our relationship, I am your servant, I do as you tell me to do, we are not friends." The last words came out cold and stern, Etelka stopped what she was doing and to offset her tone she turned and smiled at Hanako. Then, slowing walking towards the seated girl and leaning in close to her ear, "But that doesn't mean we can't have fun." Lowering her hand gently onto the thigh of the mage, she began to slowly raise it up along her leg, calmly sending her hand on a path up the skirt of her mistress.

Bugby was calmly progressing towards the designated classroom as he solely strode through the hallways that all lead up to it eventually. With halfhearted eyes beamed forward and lazy steps dragged behind, the green-haired demon soon found himself stood in front of the door that offered access to the area he required. Opening it somewhat cautiously he stuck his head in first to case over the room, before sticking a boot forward and making his way further into the wide space of desks and idle students.

Quickly concluding that there was only a handful of students at best, and paying little attention to any of them at that, the demon kept to himself and walked further down the room towards a seat that was far distanced from any of the other students, or at least as far as he could manage without seeming entirely unsociable. Having settled somewhere Bugby didn’t really take the time to notice who exactly was in the room with him, preferring to stay somewhat anonymous for now until greetings were needed. However it did not take long before their headmaster soon made an appearance, of which Bugby was not so pleased about. So to say.

“Greetings, students. My name is Midora Kurayami, the newly appointed Headmaster of this Academy…” Bugby merely raised a brow in acknowledgement as the headmaster greeted the bundle of students that sat before him. His expression was bored at most as his eyes retained their ever-knowing dispirited look. Even as the teacher spoke the demon did not seem enlightened, but rather more begrudging at the mentioning of mages. As the dark-haired headmaster continued on, Bugby couldn’t help but feel an odd sense niggling away at him, something irking him ever so slightly, of which he could not set his finger on. Perhaps it was due to being stuck in a room with pesky mages and even more un-worthy demons that was getting to him just a tad, perhaps.

”For now, please make your way to your dorms, where you'll rest for the day. The supervising teachers for each group shall be introduced by the first lesson tomorrow. I suggest you all try to get acquaintance with each other and don't cause any troubles. Class dismisses. Have a nice evening, everyone.”

Bugby let out a despaired sigh as he got onto his feet shortly after. He considered much of the headmasters talk to be mere malarkey and not something he’d take overly seriously. However, the demon did accept that venturing to his dorm made some sense, and that was what exactly he would do. Turning on his heel Bugby made little effort to acquaint himself with any of his fellow peers as he side-stepped in and out of the few who got in his way. Clearly personal space was not a priority for some! Just as he was about to storm out the room the headmaster spoke yet again, catching the demons begrudged attention once more.

”Oh, and one more thing,” Bugby narrowed his stare slightly as he waited for the piece of information. ”…all of your belongings had been sent to your rooms. You've been informed which room you'll be staying at.”

With that he left the room, finally.

The demon knew soon enough he would cross paths with his fellow teammates, regardless of how much effort he’d put into not meeting them, it was inevitable all the same. Little time had seemed to pass as Bugby made his way to his dorm room, arriving soon after leaving the classroom, and immediately looking over what little belongings he had that were safely delivered to his room. As he stood beside the beds the demon could hardly care which he claimed as his own, though the top bunk was especially tempting, and with that the bored-seeming demon launched himself upwards onto the highest bed and lay against it with a heavy sigh.

All he had to do now was wait. To wait and see who would form the latter of his team. Oh joy.

Hanako blinked as she watched the girl rise up silently from where she sat and stride across the room towards her. Without saying a word she began to look through her belongings, Hana was about to ask what she was doing before she began to take the items over to a closet and hang them up. A small smile graced her lips as she watched the woman hang things up before finally speaking.

"Lady Minami, that is what I shall call you,"

Her head inclined slightly to the side at the odd manner in which she was addressed but before she could speak up to question or challenge this the demon continued.

"The way you said 'work together' I fear you don't understand our relationship, I am your servant, I do as you tell me to do, we are not friends."

The cold words came as a bit of shock to the young woman, her eyes betraying her obvious feelings of confusion at at the demon's actions and words. Her smile had faded by now as she simply sat and silently continued to watch the demon as she approached her and leaned in close.

"But that doesn't mean we can't have fun."

And with that, she felt the sensation of the demon's hand upon her thigh. She was of course shocked but she wasn't about to let herself be overwhelmed by this girl. She knew she looked weak and so she also knew she would have to prove the false, right here and right now. Tapping into her magic she quickly summoned a small wall of force around the demon's wrist to render her hand immobile before using her own hands to scoot herself a bit farther away from the woman before clearing her throat and looking her in the eye.

"I'm not sure who you think I am but I'm no 'Lady', nor your master. As I'm sure you're aware my ability to control demons is rather underdeveloped at this point in time, that's why I'm here. I couldn't control you even I wanted to, which I don't. So, with that all in mind I do believe I do understand our relationship, we're going to have to work together while we're here. If you don't wish to be friends then that is regrettable but understandable."

The girl heaved a deep breath after her little tirade of words but spoke up once more with one final piece to say. "As for this 'fun'... You could at least take me on a few dates first." With that the opaque wall of force would disappear and free the demon's hand. "Oh, and I don't believe I caught your name?" A pleasant looking smile once more formed upon Hana's lips as she looked to the demon once more.

The advance of her hand was halted by some sort of wall forming around it, then the young Lady pushed herself away and began to go on a tangent. Her first point was null and void, her Lady was new to demons and didn't understand her role in all this yet, Etelka had grown with this, this was her life up until a couple years ago. As Minami then pointed out she was a novice, Etelka scoffed to herself but keep a straight smile at the girl, the wording of the next sentence bothered her deeply. Why would she come to an academy for controlling demons if she didn't want to control them, what an odd girl. Every other mage she had ever met was immediately enthralled by the prospect of controlling Etelka, which gave her many opportunities to have sex with them, injure them, then use her power to cripple them, leading to their death.

Next on little miss tangents parade of words was saying she understood they were to work together, this directly contradicted the information Etelka had provided the Mistress by it wasn't her place to question it. Finally her tirade ended with regrettably accepting that Etelka had not wish for friendship, which was dramatically cut off Minami trying to catch her breath. Her lady mentioned going on a date before releasing Etelka from the wall, the way the word was used completely confused her, what did she mean by date in that sentence? Did she mean take her to a certain date like Tuesday? Take her to have some dates, not a food Etelka would generally love to eat. Before being able to voice any concern her name was asked for, and with complete disregard for the tangent Etelka stood up straight and answered "My apologies M'Lady, my name is Etelka Lantos, twenty-six years of age."

Cordially returning to the task of organizing her Ladies belongings she prepared to ask a question, she sputtered out noises that resembled words before raising her own hand to her mouth. Even if her new master insisted she was not her master, she was, and one never questions their master, so the confusion of whatever she meant by 'date' would have to be left alone. While not speaking for a few seconds Etelka decided it best to inform Lady Minami of where she stood on friendship, "Lady Minami, you seemed to find it regrettable that we could not be friends, I don't wish to cause you any discord of the heart so let me alleviate that feeling. Most humans tend to be turned off by the fact that I have killed many of them, around ten to be exact, I watched the life drip from their eyes as they screamed out in pain in front of me."

Etelka now stopped her task, she turned to face Hanako and smiled one of the most genuine smiles she could provide, "You are weaker then many I have killed, the only reason you are alive is because I respect the headmaster. So please Second Master, do not throw away a great mans grace, I know now to serve, not how to be friendly."

She was late; this is not how Kou had wanted to make her school debut although it was entirely her fault. Kou had spent the morning rushing to pack, excited to finally be leaving the Shrine even if it was to another place that would confine her and try to quell her abilities. Anything was better then sweeping the grounds and organizing fortune slips and so Kou made sure that everything her final duties had been performed last night before waking up only to realize she hadn't packed a single thing.

Now the Usagi stood at the gate, awfully late with her bag slung over her shoulder. Tsukuyomi had ordered her to come here to learn how to love humans, if she didn't she was going to be turned back into a rabbit and trapped on the moon once more. It was not something Kou wanted and she had promised herself that she would do her best to make peace with the kind that had eaten her family. Or at least attempt to. The demon was going to be on her best behavior and not destroy anything or go berserk without reason.

Her ears twitched, the sound of laughter flitting through the air reached her and she turned to see humans and demons walking out of a large building towards a slightly larger one. She riffled through her pockets to find a piece of paper with a few numbers scribbled on it. Fortunately the rabbit had learned to read and write a few human dialects during her time at the shrine, otherwise she would not be able to decipher the dorm number and names of her teammates.

Should she check in with the Headmaster first? No, Kou decided. Her bag was heavy and she was tired, teleporting from Miyagi Prefecture had taken a lot out of her and she could do with a snack or something before having to deal with the Head Mage. So Kou headed across the paved walkway towards what she assumed was the dorm building, using the scribbles on paper to navigate the way to her living space. She knocked on the door twice before entering, finding a demon girl with gems on her forehead and aqua colored hair as well as a human in a wheelchair. It took everything Kou had not to turn in disdain at the hideous smell that offended her nostrils. Mages always reeked, she wasn't sure why though.

"Good evening," Kou bowed, an ear flopping into her face. The demon rabbit righted herself and placed her small bag of belongings on the unclaimed bed. She had only brought about three changes of clothes, which is really all Kou owned. The rest of her things had been Shrine Maiden outfits which she would not need at the school or ever again. Hopefully. "I'm Usagi Kou, pleasure to make your acquaintance."

The sidewalk was fairly busy, but he was close enough to the Academy that it would be too easy to take a cab. With one hand he held onto the strap of his satchel slung over his shoulder while letting his other arm dangle lousily at his side. It was a fantastic day out and Ichiro was ready for the Academy. Being stuck at home for so long caused him to have an excessive amount of energy bottled up that he got out on his way here. Though he left a fair share of damages in the wake of his trail, raising his free hand he snapped and small bit's of golden particles quickly formed together to produce a small red gem. With a swift pinch it dissolved and another snap produced a golden coin.Only if their eyes were quick enough to notice my particles they wouldn't have been cheated. Thinking while he flipped the coin the air.

Finally he had arrived at the school. After a little searching he had found the classroom that he was suppose to be in. Normally he would stroll in the room fully plated out in his golden armor so that everyone would remember him, but he decided not to intimidate anyone away at first sight. It seemed as if everyone was already here, making Ichiro either the last or one of the last to arrive. After looking around the room a grin crept across his face as it seemed a lot of the other students were the reserved or laid back type. You could assume by looking at peoples body language, it's not full proof, but when someone sits keeping to them self and nervous like or head down asleep on the desk, the clues are there. Almost instantly as he sat down the headmaster came in and right away Ichiro could feel the power emanating from the man. Midora Kurayami. What a fantastic challenge you would pose in a fight, though as of now death would be assured for myself. The thought though of such a challenge is revitalizing, school may just be fun after all. With a slow grin growing on his face. Just as quickly as the headmaster came he left.

It seemed everyone was going to head to their rooms. The satchel was the only thing he had brought with him so unpacking would be simple meaning he was in no rush to get to the room. After making a few stops to check out bits of the school he had finally arrived at his groups dorm in no rush. What kind of people could be in my group I wonder, maybe if I'm lucky I will get two book smart people who I could transform into party loving brawlers. Or maybe two intense thug style characters, oh the entertainment that would provide could be endless.

After entering the room he looked left....than right.....than left again. It seemed that both his demons were already here before him. One lay on the top bunk though Ichiro couldn't get a good look at whoever it was. The other was a girl and she seemed to be talking with the person on the top bunk. "You two having fun up there. I don't know the bedding situation, but I'm taking the bottom bunk." He said without giving them a second look, throwing his satchel on the lowest bed he felt as if he was forgetting something. He took a step back and looked up again an noticed something that had slipped his mind. "Oh she has cat ears...... wait CAT EARS!" Saying the first part to himself the second half slipped out without him realizing. He stood stunned for a moment, he expected demons to come in all different looks, but it slipped his mind they could look as simple as a cat though she seemed to only have the ears from his angle. Normally he wouldn't have cared an inch how they looked, but since he was a kid Ichiro had loved Lions above all else, the golden mane, power, and title of King all made Lions the greatest creatures in his eyes and it turned into an infatuation with lions that has only gotten worse with age. Though Ichiro won't claim to be the brightest and in his eyes cat's are just mini lions so hes always had a thing for cats just on a smaller scale. His eyes were glued to her ears. Please be a lion, I would forever be in your favor oh master of the fate. He couldn't think of anything else while crossing his fingers. Ichiro had to know if she was a lion and in his mind she had to be why wouldn't you be a lion and have cat ears, that's how his mind was working, and if she was he was dead set on having her be his.

As Etelka delivered her rather grim message Hanako could only let out a small sigh as her gaze turned away from the demon woman and towards the door, this whole thing was starting to seem like it might be a bit more difficult than she had imagined. As if right on cue to interrupt the slightly awkward silence that had fallen over the room, the door opened. Who came through though could... Most accurately described as a "bunny girl".

She blinked in surprise at the sight as she watched the girl flop forward in a bow that was undeniably cute. Hanako simply watched with curiosity as she wandered over to the final bed and set her sparse belongings. It seemed neither of the demons had brought much at all with them. After setting her things down the bunny demon introduced herself in a much more friendly manner than Etelkos had. Hanako in turn smiled pleasantly at the girl and introduced herself in turn, "Nice to meet you too Kou, I'm Hanako Minami." She gestured her hand over towards the strange-haired woman nearby, "This is Etelka Lantos."

"I hope we can work together and get along in our time here Kou." With a small bit of effort she scooted herself over to the edge of the bed before transferring herself onto her wheelchair. She reached over to her luggage and quickly took out what looked to be a pair of pajamas. As she placed to clothing on her lap she spoke up as she wheeled herself over towards the bathroom. "I'll be taking a bath first, it's getting late." And with that, she disappeared beyond the bathroom door.

"Nice to meet you too Kou, I'm Hanako Minami." Her voice was quiet, like a whisper of wind that tickled her ears. If it weren't for her enhanced rabbit senses, Kou was sure she would have never heard the human speak at all. "This is Etelka Lantos." She thought it rather rude that the Mage did not allow the other Demon to introduce herself, but perhaps the other being was shy? Not that Kou cared. She sat down on the bed, surprised at how plush it was despite the fact that the mattress was so thin. It was much better then the futon Kou slept on in the shrine.

"I hope we can work together and get along in our time here Kou." Her attention turned back to the Mage who was scooting herself off of her bed and into a wheelchair. Remember what Tsu said, Kou thought and smiled, her ears standing up in mock attention as she replied with, "Me too." The only thing Kou truly wished for was a hot meal and a bath, but those things would come later seeing as how Hanako was going to be the first one to use the bathroom. Kou watched as the Mage wheeled behind the bathroom door and shut it behind her before turning to Etelka, the demon with the aqua colored hair.

"Looks like we're going to be working together for the next few months." Or however long this thing took. They might as well get any awkwardness or petty arguments out of the way as they would be partners under the command of the little Mage in the chair. Kou had nothing against people in wheelchairs, she did, however, have something against people who tried to harness her power and use it for themselves. Of course that wasn't the goal here, it was to learn to interact better with humans.

Etelka Lantos

Her grim message seemed to perturb Lady Minami only slightly, the only response Etelka had received was an exhale of breath, maybe the tiny lady wasn't as pathetic as anticipated. If the two had anymore words to exchange they were forgotten at the introduction of a third, this girl was the second demon to serve the Lady it seemed. Kou Usagi, Etelka had not met many other demons in her life but none had been more captivating then herself until now, she had initial resentment as she had never met another demon she liked, but who could resent a girl so well endowed in her physical features. Etelka had only truly began to enjoy sex after the death of Ervin, but since then it was something she could never get off her mind, and it seemed be unlikely Kou would be quickly off the mind.

Her Lady had introduced Etelka for her, which while unnecessary was kind. More nonsense about working together was spouted before the Lady dismissed herself to bathe before nightfall, leaving the two demons alone with one another. The voluptuous rabbit girl spoke, "Looks like we're going to be working together for the next few months." Etelka was beginning to think Ervin was the odd one out, everyone spoke of cooperation, but perhaps that was just the words of the weak and misinformed. Even after his death Etelka would not forget his directive for her was to serve, and she would do so or she would be punished.

She finally decided to converse with the rabbit girl, although she had to restrain herself from going after those large breasts, Etelka returned to her seat. Picking up her juice pack once more, she grasped at another and tossed it to Kou, "Greetings Ms. Usagi, if we are to serve m'Lady I do hope to get along, and..." This was probably getting awkward for Kou at this point, Etelka's gaze had obviously drifted to the girls breast, and her smile had become more lustful as she licked her lips. She desperately wanted to embrace Kou, so she cleared her throat but didn't avert her gaze, "May I partake in your body, it is simply scrumptious." While not the most graceful and dignified sentence Etelka was close to the point of performing an illicit deed upon herself with lust.

Kou had begun to unpack, she had put in her two cents and had felt that, that was all she needed to say until the room got suddenly very quiet and Etelka began to speak. "Greetings Ms. Usagi, if we are to serve m'Lady I do hope to get along, and..." she didn't like being called Usagi, it was actually a bit derogatory considering it was simply her species name. It was as if she went up to a beast and began to call them Demon.

"Please just call me Kou." She said as Etelka opened her mouth once more.

"May I partake in your body? It is simply scrumptious." This was something unexpected and quite frankly Kou wasn't sure how to respond. Her cheeks turned red and her blue hair and ears turned pink. Kou followed Etelka's gaze down to her chest and instinctively crossed her arms. She took a deep breath and put on her best, most patient smile, trying not to come across as rude. "Thank you and I'm sorry, but I just met you. Unless what you're looking for is a hug then I don't think I can help you. At least, not until we get to know each other better." There, she didn't completely shoot her down or burn any bridge that might have somehow built between them in the few minutes that they have known each other.

Kou pulled out the meager belongings she had and began to put them away in the drawers beside her bed. It was about five pairs of underwear, three changes of clothes, a pair of pajamas, and some bras. Once that was done she sat back on the bed and thought for a second before asking. "Do you know where we can get food?" As a rabbit food was almost always on her mind, nearly every thought was followed by can I eat that? It was quite annoying and the human side of her often grew tired of having to answer that question.

Midora still sleeping peacefully with his arm rested on his forehead and his breaths are quite monotonous. Nothing seems to had troubled him as he slept. As the first lights of dawn rises along with the sun, they peeked through the frames of the windows and brighten up the whole room. The rays then shone of the bed, dancing on Midora's face as they woke him up.

Midora then sat up on his bed and stretched his arms. He scratches his slightly messed hair a bit and then looked at the clock on the wall. It's already 6:00 AM, still early, but he has to get prepare because he knows which day today is, and he also well-awared that it's going to be a long day for him, his collegues and the new transfer students. "I should get prepare." Midora said to himself as he pulled the blanket away from his lap downward then stood up and folded it nicely on the bottom of his bed.

After that, he made his way to his bathroom. He turned on the faucet and adjusted it to the right temperature and strips off his pants before immerse himself under the water streams (Well yeah, he slept half-naked, mind you). Midora closed his eyes as he felt his muscles relaxed under the heat of the bathroom before grabbed the shampoo lotion nearby and washes his hair with a small amount of the liquid.

Meanwhile, in the room next to Midora's, Mikari has just also woke up from his slumber and now he's changing into a more suitable clothes. After finished changing, he went into his bathroom while humming a melody. Somehow, he felt optimistic about all of this and was kinda excited. He then brushed his teeth then fixed his hair a bit. Great, I'm ready. Everyone better aware, cause it's time for Mikari to shine. He smirked to himself in front of the mirror and went out of his room.

With just a few steps, Mikari stood in front of his best friend's room and knocked the door. "Hey Dora-chin, rise and shine. Have you woke up yet? Can I come in?" He asked. "The door wasn't locked." Midora replied from the inside. Mikari then opened the door and stepped in. But just as he stepped in...

Mikari wouldn't have thought that he'd got an eyeful early in the morning like this. He was pretty surprised when he saw that Midora has just got out from the bathroom without wearing anything to cover his torso. Midora's hair is still wet as some drops of water streamed down on his naked skin. And another thing is that the Mage in front of Mikari right now only covered the part from his waist down by a towel hanging around his waists.

Mikari blushed as his face got a bit reddened. This wasn't the first time he saw his best friend half-naked and they're both guys so it wasn't such a big deal. It's not that he has any kinds of feeling towards Midora, but he couldn't figure out why anytime he caught this scene from any of his male friends, which included Midora, he felt quite awkward as his heartbeats got quicken.

"Hey, you're okay over there?" Midora called and pulled Mikari back to reality. "Y-Yeah, I'm good..." He bit his lips and gave a smile. Midora just leaned his head, wondering what was his friend was thinking. After putting his usual Dark Mage's uniform on, he walks towards Mikari. "Want to go and breathe some fresh air first?" Midora asked, feeling quite comfortable, but he still keeps his usual calm posture like everyday.

"Yeah, that'd be great." Mikari grinned like a child. Midora just silently shook his head as he puts on his boots and both of them made their ways towards the garden. Stepped out into the open air, Mikari sniffs and took a deep breath. The air was fresh with the atmosphere still a bit cool. The morning sunshine is still quite gentle. Today's gonna be a perfect day.

"Ah... feels good. Usually I would go jogging around town by now." Mikari said with his smile, "Hey, we can go and have some exercises when there are free times. I missed working out with you."

Midora nodded, "Sure, that's a good idea." Mikari giggled. After that, Midora walked to the rock and sat down in meditation form and Mikari also sat down on the grass. Both of them meditated for about 15 minutes and gather their thoughts. When they're done, they decided to go and have breakfast.

"Say," Mikari spoke up as they walked, "could the students wake up by themselves or there are some sort of... well, alarm clocks to wake them up?"

"Yeah, to avoid class tardiness, I've placed an alarming spell around the walls of the students' room. At the exact time, the spell will "goes off" and sent supersonic waves straight to the brains of the ones staying in those students' rooms. Because it only in their heads, it didn't make any noise to the outsiders of the room, but to them, it's going to be REAL loud."

"So, I guess that the sounds will only disappeared once they have woke up, correct?"

"Yes. Most of the newbies complained about this at first, but they'll got used to it." Midora coldly assured.

"Hehe, you're such an little wicked wizard, you know?" Mikari grinned mischiviously.

When they went through the students' quarters, Midora then abruptly stopped then looked at the time on his phone, it was 6:59 AM. "Wait for it..." he said as the clock ticked 7:00 AM. Right after that, Mikari could hear the sounds of students falling off their beds and even some yelling came out from the rooms. It was kinda hilarious to hear those sounds and he has to resist the urge of laughing out loud. "This Academy sure is fun, I don't know what else is waiting for me but I can't wait."

"Just wait and see." Midora said as put his phone back to his robe and both of them continued to walk.




After having their breakfast, Midora and Mikari went to the teachers' office and took the other two demon teachers with them. Together, four of them went to direction the classroom. Standing in front of the door, Midora turned his head and spoke to his collegues, "Remember, teach them with all of your dedication, but if they make mistake, never go easy on them and help them fix it." Then he turned back and opened the door.

With that, the four of them walked in, interrupting all the talking between the students as the room filled with complete silent. Midora stood in front of the desk and began to talked loudly.

"Good morning, all students. I believe that all of us have rested and ready for this morning. And now, I officially announce that the days of training of this year in Survival Kit Academy begin. As you all have known, within your course, you'll learn how to make yourselves better individuals. I believe that, 12 persons sitting in front of us right now will try their very best, passing your own limits and learn from your mistakes."

Midora paused then turned his head to the teachers who are standing in a horizon line, "Allow me to introduce your supervising teachers, who will be the ones to oversee and advise you. I, Midora Kurayami, Headmaster and also a Mage Teacher, will look after group 3. Standing next to me is Mikari Akigawa, a Mage Teacher and the supervising teacher of group 4. The shorter lady here is Embla Brodersson, a Demon Teacher and supervisor of group 1. And last but not least, Sarah Rayne, the Demon Teacher in charge of group 2. I hope that during your time at the Academy, you will listen and follow every advices we give, strictly follow our instructions so that you can better yourself."

After introduction, Midora paused a bit before going on with the first lesson, "As for the first day, we will have different sessions for both Mages and Demons. Four Mages of four group, please follow me and Mikari-sensei to the training room. The rest of the Demon students will learn their introduction lecture with two ladies here. Let our first day begin."

With that said, both Midora and Mikari made their ways out of the classroom. When they're outside, they waited at the other exit for the Mage Students before they head for the training room.

Kou had risen with the sun, the warm rays alerting her to presence of morning. She turned over in bed slowly and stretched, her fuzzy rabbit ears picking up the sounds the still snoozing Etelka and Hanako. The rabbit demon slid out from underneath the covers, going over to the closet and pulling out an outfit she deemed good for the first day. Kou then made her way over to the bathroom and turned on the shower, discovering that her hair was still pink from last night's encounter with Etelka. It was weird to think that someone could possibly like her, especially since Kou had never found herself especially attractive.

The rabbit shook her head to get the thought out. Today was about focusing on becoming better! She pumped her first in the air in order to psych herself and stepped under the steady stream of hot water, scrubbing until her hair turned blue once more and her fingertips were a bit wrinkled. "It feels so nice to be clean," Kou purred as she dried herself off and pulled on her clothing. When she finally went back into the room the sound of screaming and people falling echoed through the walls, surprising Kou and causing her to jump a few feet in the air. "What the-!" Kou cursed and flung open the door to their room in order to see what could possibly be causing so much excitement, but her ears weren't picking up any sound aside from the pained cries of students.





It was only about an hour later and with a full stomach that Kou sat at one of the desks in the back of the classroom. She noticed she was not the only animal demon in attendance and was actually a bit relieved although Kou couldn't tell if the demon was a kitsune or a nekomura, but figured that she would discover which soon enough. It was then that the Head Master began to speak, a man with dark hair and eyes that matched who carried himself with confidence; Kou instantly hated him.

"Good morning all students. I believe that we are all rested and ready for this morning. And now I officially announce that our training days here at the Survival Kit Academy have begun. As you all know, within your course you'll learn how to make yourselves better individuals; I believe that, the 12 persons sitting in front of us right now will each try their very best, surpassing their own limits and learning from their mistakes."

Kou listened with an expression of determination; yes the rabbit was attending the academy by force just like many other demons but that didn't mean she wasn't prepared to learn how to better herself and properly use her abilities. Kou was attempting to keep a positive attitude about it all, but it was hard when you were working with the species that devoured your family. Her attention was drawn back to Midora once more as he began to announce who would be teaching them all. Their group, Group 1, was assigned to a short but pretty instructor named Embla Brodersson. The woman was clearly a demon herself and Kou wondered how she could have possibly ended up in this position.

"As far as how the first day will work; we will have different training sessions for both Mages and Demons. The four Mages of the four groups, please follow me and Mikari-Sensei to the training room. The rest of the Demon students will receive their introductory lecture with the two ladies here. Let our first day begin!"

Kou watched as Hanako left along with the other three Mages. Her heart rate picked up a beat in excitement as she turned to face the two demon instructors, the real fun was finally about to begin!

Refraining:

Shiore sat upright in the hospital bed, humming to a playful tune he had heard a few days prior. He glanced beneath the cut out of cloth covering him, there were a few straps of gauze wrapped around his frail chest. ”Owwwww, why was that cat so high up in that tree?” Yes, out of an act of valor and bravery, the boy had attempted to become the hero in a generic scenario, where a cat was stuck in the tree. It happened when he and a few of his classmates were on their way home from school. They were in the middle of chatting about which idol was their favorite, until they waltzed into the scene. Nobody in the general vicinity was tall enough to reach the lowest branch, nor were they versed in climbing up tree trunks. Shiore, being the opportunist, seized the chance to shine. Although his friends were fully aware of his demonic origins, the boy was able to play the role of a human very well. To the extent where he was always perceived as a human of pure bloodline.

He attempted to propel himself up to the first branch, then continue to ascend the tree, save the feline damsel, and save the day. It was foolproof, well, in his mind at least. When he surged towards his target, he accidentally overshot and flew a few meters higher, where there was nothing to grab onto. His descent wasn’t too pleasant. When he awoke, belly-up, he noticed a puff of fur resting on his chest. From what his friends said, he shook the tree so much that the cat lost its balance. But, since cats always land on their feet, it managed to find a soft cushion to break its fall. Sure, he may have received a few fractured ribs, but at least he saved the cat, and had a good laugh with his schoolmates. And that was how he wound up here, examining his own wounds. When Shiore glanced up from the collar of his gown, a middle-aged woman in a nun’s attire was standing before him. Who knew death was so stealthy? ”Idiot boy!” The woman shrieked, tugging tightly on his cheek.

”I’m sorry Aunt Reeeeeeeen. But it was a kitty~” Ren exhaled and shook her head, then squeezed him closer, ”I don’t care if it was a cat, a dog, even the prime minister! You still might be partially human, and even though you are mostly a demon, you are by no means invincible! Who do you think is paying for the bill? You’re lucky you do a lot of good deeds around the town, otherwise you wouldn’t have any donors!” The woman was speaking at a frantic pace, though she couldn’t find a point to truly prove the boy wrong. He wasn’t harmed too much, and the bills were completely covered. The only downside was the amount of school days he was bound to miss. Which, at the most, was roughly two or three. ”Is this how you’ll live your last year of highschool? You know you’re going to that institution next term, right?” What’s it called…” The woman stared at the ceiling fan, tapping her chin as he tried to scrounge around for the name. It was obvious where Shiore had gotten the habit from. Survival Kit Academy. That’s it. Your enrollment has been fully covered, but are you sure you’re ready for dorming? This will be the first time you’re away from the orphanage.” The nun looked at Shiore with a worried expression, dubious thoughts floated in her eyes as they focused on the boy. Furawa was staring blankly out the window, his whitened grin wasn’t present on his face. ”We’ll see, Aunt Ren.”





Back to Reality:

Shiore woke up with a start, the book which had been resting on his chest flew onto his mattress. Yet another glimpse of his past, something here rarely referenced. He had always been a futurist, a person who moved forward and lived for tomorrow. The complete opposite of the stars he was allured by. Ren wasn’t really his aunt, just a nun who ran the orphanage. Though Shiore rarely partook in her sermons, it was nice to pop into them from time to time. The boy had lived a pretty normal life. He had his share of highschool interactions. Friendships made, bonds formed, late night and eleventh hour assignments, he was even confessed to a few times. His playful persona was desirable by some, it seemed. But of course, he had to turn people down, even though it was very uncharacteristic of him. His mind slowly departed from his dream state.

The frequency of his sharp breaths began to slow down, as air began to circulate through his lungs. The room was still dark, and the morning light hadn’t pierced the panes of glass as of yet. Rather than climbing down the bed and potentially waking up his groupmates, who were still fast asleep, he slowly eased him over the edge. With feet first and the weight of a feather, he landed without a sound or a thump. Shiore glanced back at the two, who were still immersed in their dreams. He tiptoed over to his desk and picked up his phone. His blurred vision finally focused on the screen, and he acknowledged the time in his internal clock, ”6:15 AM? Maybe the cafeteria is open?” The rummaged through his bags and produced another set of his attire, the usual black uniform which buttoned across. After a quick wash, change of apparel and the tightening of a tie and scarf, the boy was ready for class. Before he left at thirty ‘til, he stealthily made a cup of espresso, slipped a pair of magnifying glasses onto the nape of his uniform and pocketed his cellphone.

”Rise and shine should be at seven, I think? Might as well go for a walk, then treat myself to something at the cafeteria.” It was a quick trek to the cafeteria, he had some time before it was seven. And when that time finally came around, Shiore could hear screaming from the dormitory, even though he was a ways’ away. ”Wonder what’s happening? I hope Cia-Cia and Liliane aren’t having a celebratory party without me!” He pouted for a few moments, though such an occasion would seem unlikely. If anything, he would be the one to hold such an event. Instead, here he was, sipping from a travel cup and nibbling on a grilled cheese sandwich by his lonesome self. ”Never had one of these. Doesn’t seem very… Japanese.” He recalled the academy being an international school, so cultures were mixed in all cases. Shiore was listening to an electronic song, a number by an English producer. ”Anyways, I should go to class soon. This song is pretty catchy~ Cia-Cia’s homeland has some nice music.” He rose from his seat, discarded his plate and proceeded to the same classroom. Shiore could see the lights of the dorm rooms in the distance, and a few silhouettes moving frenetically. ”Jeeze, did the whole dorm throw a party? Maybe they’re happy about their new comrades?” Little did he know, that they were all in the midst of suffering and despair.

As his classmates strolled into the classroom, some appeared exhausted and shocked. The boy was sitting forward, his mouth buried into the black scarf. ”Woah. Seriously, what happened?” He sat forward in his seat when he saw Akumu finally walk in, ”Sup A-ku-mu-kun~! How’s it going, old man?” The demon sulked with what Shiore presumed were his groupmates. One was a petite young girl, with blood red retinas and a displeased expression. The other looked like he could kill a person with a lock of hair, he seemed more feral than human in complexion. Soon enough, his own teammates entered the room and took their seats. The headmaster began with his speech, which Shiore listened intently to. Still with a covered mouth, he leaned back in his seat and lowered his headphones to his neck. The man was sporting the same dignified expression from yesterday, a man of boldness and pride. When he referenced group two to their teacher, Shiore recalled the description he was given by Liliane yesterday. ”Definitely looks angelic. That’s interesting. Must be pretty fluffy~. And they don’t look fake either. Can’t think of a person who would go to such lengths to craft such genuine extensions.” After the headmaster beckoned for all of the mages and made his departure with Mikari. Shiore glanced over to Acacia, then back to their teachers. Not a lectuuuuuuuuuure.” He thought to himself in denial. The boy wasn’t too fond of lectures or prolonged speeches.

”And, class is in session. Shiore nodded, with a determined look of cheerfulness on his face.

The sound of the nearby shower spraying to life woke Haruka from her rather light sleep. It felt like she had only slept for a couple hours at most being an unfamiliar place and with the beginning of actual classes on the horizon. Fighting off her desire to just lay back down she sat up with a yawn and stretched her arms into the air. It had been some time since she ate and her stomach was not quiet in its protest of its emptiness. Her desire for a cup of hot tea was also intense, a morning ritual she had grown quite accustomed to back home, she simply hoped the cafeteria here would have some available. After Kou had left the bathroom Hanako took her turn to head in, wash her face, and get dressed.

This rather mundane task however was made quite exciting by the sudden erupting of a most disturbing sound into her mind. And it seemed she wasn't alone in experiencing it as thumps and shouts came from all the rooms around her as well. The assault was thankfully short lived leaving Hanako to simply sigh at the unpleasant experience, such things were to be expected in a magical academy. It was a relatively short trip to the cafeteria where Hanako had a light breakfast and a rather mediocre cup of tea, but it was better than nothing at least.

After rolling into their classroom Hanako took the opportunity to once again scan over the other students and demons assembled here, the diversity was quite impressive. The headmaster stepped in not long after and informed the class of their objectives for the day. Apparently she was going to be going off with the other mages and the mage instructors for some sort of training. Looking over her fellow mages Hanako couldn't help but sigh. None of them looked particularly friendly or approachable. With a shake of her head she strengthened her resolve, she had to give it a shot, and who knows? Maybe they were actually be nice under their rougher exteriors.

And so, putting on her best smile she rolled herself behind the teachers and the other mages curious as to what their first exercise would involve. Whatever it was, Hanako was confident she could handle it after the rigorous schooling she went through daily back at home.

Cleo Gardenia

”Oh my freakin’head!” Cleo cried out of the blue suddenly, hands tugging wildly onto her furry ears as she desperately wished for the noise to stop. It came out of nowhere, and never seemed to end as the feline hissed angrily at no one. ”I will be good I promise, oh dear lords above!” Falling out of bed without her usual grace the girl hit the ground with a thud, thankfully landing on her backside as appose to her dainty face, though her hands were still gripped to the ends of her ears as the ruckus continued for a short while after.

Scrambling to her feet Cleo quickly released her ears, feeling a slight twinge after doing so due to her tight grip, and proceeded to run her fingers through her hair in a bid to make it look more presentable. Brushing down her clothes the girl could hardly do much else, believing she was running late or something along those lines at least, given her very, very rude awakening. Surely her teammates could hear it? They would soon enough, she amusingly thought. ”Guys, we don’t want to be late! I’ll catch you at class!” She called as she hurried out through the door, whether the boys heard would surely be proven later, when she’d next meet them.

That was if she too wasn’t late.

Some time later Cleo eventually arrived at the classroom, panting as she did so before opening the door and sliding into the classroom. So far there were only a few students, though more were quickly pouring in – thankfully. The feline joined the students and quickly headed into the room and took a seat towards the front surprisingly, not really a preference, but she did all the same for whatever reason. It wans’t long after settling into her new seat that the Headmaster arrived with a group of teachers.

“Good morning, all students. I believe that all of us have rested and ready for this morning...” As the man began to speak Cleo could already feel her sleepiness sinking in as his words went on, and on, and on. It wasn’t like she disliked him – she didn’t know him. However, that sharp awakening was not easily forgotten, and the feline just knew he was behind it. However, instantly a pair of fluffy white ears perked upright at the mentioning a particular sentence.

"I, Midora Kurayami, Headmaster and also a Mage Teacher, will look after group 3..."

Raising her head with a daunting look the feline could not believe what she was hearing. ”Oh crap he’s in charge of our group,” She whispered to herself, whining ever so quietly as her ears lowered just a little. ”…Am I being punished already? Pfft.”

”As for the first day, we will have different sessions for both Mages and Demons. Four Mages of four group, please follow me and Mikari-sensei to the training room. The rest of the Demon students will learn their introduction lecture with two ladies here. Let our first day begin.” Cleo watched as the mages began to leave with the two teachers, keeping an eye out for Ichiro before her attention shifed to the two demon teachers in charge of the rest of them. A slight smirk edged it’s way onto her lips as she began to wonder what their first class could be. Just then, she redirected her eyes and quickly scanned the room and got a better look at the other demons in her class – a few slightly intimidating whereas others were perhaps a bit too cute – and there was even a rabbit demon to her surprise, and a familiar face too but she’d leave it for later. Quickly though, she turned and looked to Bugby.

”Psst... These losers ain't got nothin' on us. We’re gonna have real fun, huh?” She could only hope no one misinterpreted that as a challenge. Not that she'd mind. That hellish wake-up call had already set her mood in motion. To pass the time the girl opted to lick the side of her hand and brush it softly against one of her ears, letting out a playful purr as she did so.

Etelka Lantos

Bad habits eventually have bad outcomes, and with a curfew set in place Etelka did not get a lot of sleep. When she had finally decided to venture out of the castle for the first time the sun did not agree with her eyes, and has never since, twenty plus years of darkness does that. As such she made a habit of traveling during night and hiding and sleeping during the day. This is why now at 7:00 am Etelka was rudely awoken by a terrible screech in her ears after only an hour or two of sleep. The sound caused an ache in her head that quickly went away, and from her perch looking over the side of the bed she saw Ms. Kou scouting the hallways for the sounds source.

No matter how rested she felt, which was negative amounts, Etelka had precious little time to prepare for class. It seemed her Mistress had already departed from the room so she had little to worry about in terms of tending to her whims, and that also meant the bathroom was most certainly available. She cleaned herself, dried herself, and then put on her dress in time to make it to class on time, although on an empty stomach. Etelka payed little mind on the position of her seat other then to avoid the side of the room near windows, she was exhausted and mostly just wanted to rest her eyes until it was time to 'learn'.

Of course she didn't get to rest long before the Headmaster arrived and addressed the students. It was mostly endless rabble Etelka barely cared to acknowledge, but eventually the demons were segregated from the mages and the two demon teachers were left to stare at their class. Etelka was not excited about this current classroom, she didn't even care to acknowledge her classmates existence, other demons would just either turn her on or annoy her. Adjusting herself to have good posture she kept her gaze on the teachers out front, hers was apparently the one with the creepy furred appendages, not that she liked the 'angel' wings any better.

Both of them bored her immensely, the one called Embla was down right unattractive to her and gave off no aura of particular power, and Ms. 'Angel' was also unexciting to look at and plain. Neither of them looked particularly strong and she was tempted to stare at their eyes and chomp on lip just to she what emotion would expand, but no that wasn't how to treat ones 'superiors', so she decided to simply wait for the lesson to start.

Despite having what could have been described as a peaceful sleep, it was a-shame that his awakening could not have been just as nice. Bugby woke up with a banging headache of some sort, or at least he first believed this to be the case, until he realized the difference. With both hands placed on either side of his head the demon grumbled a few choice words on the matter before opening his eyes, realizing that Cleo was the first to awake out of the three, surprisingly, in his opinion.

”Guys, we don’t want to be late! I’ll catch you guys at class!”

Taking a moment to acknowledge her words, the green-haired boy merely watched as the feline demon rushed out the door as quickly as she did. ”…Goodbye then.” He said with a blink, still vaguely hearing the ringing from his early wake-up call. Swinging his legs over the demon hopped down to the ground, running a hand lazily through his hair as he shifted himself into the bathroom. Bugby simply splashed some water onto his face, rubbing his eyes and finally snapping into reality.

”I suppose we best get this thing over with,” He sighed half-heartedly, somewhat un-enthusiastically, before returning to the bedroom area and looking to the blonde-haired mage. ”Best not be late to our first class – lets go.” He waited a few minutes, ensuring he had everything he needed, before leaving the room altogether and letting Ichiro catch up in his own time.

Eventually Bugby reached the classroom and made his way inside, soon spotting Cleo towards the front, and taking the seat next to her as they waited for their mage to join them soon after. Not long later, the Headmaster entered the room and began to address the students.

"Allow me to introduce your supervising teachers, who will be the ones to oversee and advise you. I, Midora Kurayami, Headmaster and also a Mage Teacher, will look after group 3. Standing next to me is Mikari Akigawa, a Mage Teacher and the supervising teacher of group 4. The shorter lady here is Embla Brodersson, a Demon Teacher and supervisor of group 1. And last but not least, Sarah Rayne, the Demon Teacher in charge of group 2. I hope that during your time at the Academy, you will listen and follow every advices we give, strictly follow our instructions so that you can better yourself."

Bugby merely shrugged at the news. He was neither overly pleased nor excited about what was to come for the students, though he did have some interested, it wasn’t much. The remainder of the mans words dind’t reach Bugby much, and yet, similar to his teammate, he also could not believe their luck of having the Headmaster as their group advisor. Were they that unlucky?

”Oh crap he’s in charge of our group,”

The demon sighed with a nod, clearly sharing the same disbelief as the girl. ”Looks like it. Better get use to the idea.”

"As for the first day, we will have different sessions for both Mages and Demons. Four Mages of four group, please follow me and Mikari-sensei to the training room. The rest of the Demon students will learn their introduction lecture with two ladies here. Let our first day begin."

”Oh good-y.” He sulked, biting his lower lip in slight boredom. As the Headmaster took his leave with another teacher, Bugby watched as the few mages of the class left also, leaving the rest of the demons to sit. Along with Cleo, he too grasped a moment to eye up his class and see the individuals who would be his peers. His attention was broken though, when Cleo beckoned him.

"Psst... These losers ain't got nothin' on us. We’re gonna have real fun, huh?"

He offered a nod of agreement, along with a slight grin towards the girl. ”Oh, of course. Just do not do anything too crazy, it is only our first day.” Sitting back in his chair the green-haired demon paid little attention to the other students, only shifting his stare between Cleo and the two demon teachers.

Acacia Lance

Dreams were not something Acacia was accustomed to. They'd float around in her mind a few seconds after she awoke, but they'd also disappear just as quickly. She probably woke up around the same time as Shiore, but she had stayed in her bed, staring at the bunk above her. She wanted to dream. Well, that wasn't entirely accurate. She did dream, but she never remembered those dreams. Sometimes, she wondered what she dreamed about. Her biological parents maybe? She shook her head and sat up, deducing that several minutes had already passed. Shiore had left and she could barely make out Liliane's soft breathing. Whether or not the mage was actually awake, she wasn't sure. Even so, she didn't want to bother her.

She quietly got out of her bed and straightened out the skirt of her nightgown. Comfortable as they were, they almost always ended up crooked. The smell of Shiore's coffee still lingered in the air as she rummaged through one of her two suitcases and withdrew a simple dress. She changed in the bathroom, checking her phone every few minutes. Honestly, she had no idea what the time difference between England and Japan were. As she brushed her hair, she hummed a lullaby under her breath. It was a song she'd known her entire life, but one she did not know the orgin was, as strange as it seemed.

A quick stop at the cafeteria led to Acacia enjoying a scone and then she was in the classroom, seconds before class actually started. She sat down a little bit of distance from Shiore, already feeling out of place among the other students. When she mages and Liliane left, she felt even more alone. She glanced at her blue-haired companion for some comfort. She was someone who needed comfort.

(This post takes place in the middle of the teachers’ lecture. I’m just throwing this up here to keep steady pace. This post shouldn’t be interpreted until Vincent and Lyysa begin and proceed with the lecture.)



While the boy painfully endured the lecture, as if screws inscribed with teachings were being drilled into his cranium. Regardless of his internal mayhem, Shiore was keeping a controlled and moderated composure. A calm complexion with the sliver of an innocent smile, the face of a morally good student. It was an expression he had gotten used to wearing throughout his years of school. Throughout his scholastic career, he has always been that one student who was a goody-two-shoes, but still remained on the good side of his classmates. His overall record was clean and spotless. There were times when he had to disappoint a few male students at the peak of their boyhood, and wanted him to force some gusts of winds towards some girls’ ways. But, remaining morally pure, he managed to evade such indecent intent. And now, here he was. Finished with highschool, moving into the dwindling remainder of his academic days. The boy felt his eyelids beginning to droop, he instinctively raised his travel cup to his pursed lips and tipped it. He relished the undiluted bitter flavor, taking a complete gulp before lowering the container. After treating himself to the refreshing beverage, his eyes began to wonder amongst the heads of his classmates.

He had already gotten a good look at the members of Akumu’s group, but the remaining two groups were most definitely interesting. Shiore couldn’t decide which was more alluring to pet; cat ears or rabbit ears? The boy would leave such a mental debate for later. There was also a colleague of viridescent hues, topped off with a pointed pinnacle in the middle of the guy’s scalp. Lastly was a woman with cyanic tinted hair, brushed out into large spun stands which rested around every angle of her body. In a completely captivated state, a lone five-pointed star popped up above his head. It glowed vibrantly as his eyes slowly trailed back to his teachers. Shiore was surprised when he noticed the sets of piercing gazes, focused on him by the teaching duo. The boy raised an eyebrow, then he finally noticed the cartoon styled creation floating over him, rotating as it made little jabs of motion. He frantically waved the star out of existence, trying to avert the attention from him. Shiore lightly blushed out of embarrassment, then let out a sigh of denial. Once the teachers proceeded with their lecture, he noticed his fellow groupmate’s line of sight, fixated on him. With a quick glance, he realized that all of the other students were sitting with their accompanying demon. Yet, there was a few meters of space between Shiore and Acacia. The boy was quick to correct this, by swiftly propelling himself and his bag across the bleachers without making a sound.

Shiore stopped himself, with a foot of space between himself and his friend. Although he kept his eyes completely glued to his teachers, a minute greeting smile took form out of the corner of his mouth. The boy also made a wave beneath the back of the row to his front, then finally decided to take notes on the lesson. He dug into his bag and placed a notebook onto the desk before him, then pressed a pair of magnifying glasses against his nose. Work mode: activated!” Even though he was mostly focused on the lecture, there was still something lingering near the back of his mind. Despite their distinguishing characteristics, all of the students shared something in common; they were all here for a reason. There might have been those like Shiore, who were here to hone their abilities and learn to excel under the guidance of their respective captains. But, there were also those who were forced to enroll in this institution. They were deemed unfit to serve mages, were a danger to human society and were sent here to be reformed into applicable and reliable demons.

He was unsure which column to throw Acacia into. Shiore remembered that she had only learned of her demonic origins as of recently. But why was she here? For the first reason, or the second? The boy would have to leave pondering for later, as the lesson continued to be drawn out.

His ears picked up the recognizable sound of chalk on a board, Shiore raised his eyes and trailed the winged teacher’s hand. Once she had finished grazing the board with the whitened utensil, the boy read her last name in his head. Given his young age, he was already used to the school setting. But perhaps some of the students here never partook in human activities, such as going to school. Even though they may have been alive for centuries, maybe even milleniums, the idea of being taught by an individual who is higher up in social ranking never crossed their minds. The boy knew Akumu never attended a human school, since the man had far too many tasks and obligations to even fathom wasting time with humans. On top of appearing as a kind and generous, but reserved teacher, Ms. Rayne was also his group’s advisor. At her command, Shiore was quick to rise from his seat, and hop down the aisle towards the stage. He put on a smile, made a quick bow with his head, then received the packets with an ecstatic thanks. The student swiftly returned to his seat, handed his fellow groupmate a copy, then began to pry into the contents of the packet. He was in for quite the rude awakening, a grave reminder of what academic procedures were like. ”Well. This marks the end of break. Back to school, Shio.” He furrowed his brows as his eyes skimmed the first page, letting a sigh of despair as he did so. The pencil now wrapped between his fingers was about to be put to some good use.
