From: Arthur Devlin

To: Current Resident/s

Are you unique?

In my youth the mutant and meta-human population was miniscule to say the least, even more so as the bulk of us hid from view; Those of us who had the luxury to in any case. In this new era however, our number have soared, yet our unity is almost non-existent. We see every other week it seems, the rise of a new super power with the mission of absolute power; The building of new conglomerations on the foundations of vanity and posturing; with no forward thinking goals other than their own, no preservation of the world encompassing. Our once blustering number of heroes, scattered and dissolved.

This will surely be the whimpering end of our world if left unchecked

Some forty years ago, my father told me something that changed my view of the world forever and it was this- "I believe that history might be, and ought to be, taught in a new fashion so as to make the meaning of it as a process of evolution intelligible to the young." Those words set me on my course to become the greatest teacher the world can offer. The man who said them, the reason why I open the doors to my own home to all who wish to enter with the intent pursuing of knowledge and equality... By any means necessary.

Please understand this is not merely a place for children to congregate, but all people from all walks of life, do not be shy, here you are unjudged and equally accepted. To our possible adult candidates, we would appreciate possible staff members but there is no requirement or mandate for you to do so.

Now then, if you'll pull out the enclosed pamphlet you will see our grounds laid out in every aspect to show your parents or significant other

. Should you accept, I would humbly welcome you as a new member in the growing family here, at The Devlin Academy

Your's Truly,

Professor Arthur Devlin

SUB-LEVEL

Built with refined and purified steel this underground base is nearly impenetrable. It is fitted with various Telepathic dissuasion units to evade mental intrusion as well as a top flight security system that would be near impossible to penetrate, let alone escape.

Rules:

You can NOT have a battle without consent; open areas like the garden, hedge maze, and the forest surrounding the area are an exception

Good looks everybody

Rolling his chair down the main driveway Arthur felt the minds of many traversing the roads ahead to visit his school, each with thoughts of fear, hope, and intrigue. The professor had a welcoming demeanor and a warm smile as he waited, though the veteran professor was nervous as well as anxious to see what the future graduates of the new Academy were like. He reaches down to the cente of his wheel to pull of a hot thermus, sipping the afternoon Earle Grey while waiting with a calm smile

A silver Aston Martin swept up the drive, a white-haired man in the driver's seat, a seemingly older man in the passenger side, is mouth agawk at the large mansion before them. The car stopped outside the large doors and the two men stepped out of the car. "What did I say Stanford. Is this place nice or what?" The white-haired man chuckled, making sure his coat would not get caught in the door as he shut it. Stanford nodded in quiet approval. "Now," Archeron said. "Let's find this headmaster, shall we?" The two men strode towards the front door, Archeron having to walk all the way around the car, but still reached the door first, and tapped it politely with his knuckles.

"Sir, are you well?" Stanford grinned. "A week ago you would have torn the door down hinges and all."

#43 Posted by Head_Master (6 posts) - - Show Bio

@Sideslash: A young man with blonde hair and an above average build answers the door, looking at the two confusedly before realizing the invite had been sent, "Ah right. How are you? welcome to the Academy I'm James, everybody calls me Jimmy. Come on in. " As he shuts the door the sound reverbates for moments after, "Folllow me please, Prof's upstairs; Don't ask me how he gets up there" He says with a chortle before jogging up the spiraling stairs and navigating the extended corridors to reach a large wooden oak door, "Professor, company."

The Head Master nearly spills his drink as the excited anticipation arises. "Please please come in come in! How may i help you mister...?"

F'serious? Daig.

@Head_Master: Archeron smirked. "Zarek. Archeron Zarek. And it's doctor." He extended a hand towards the man. "And this is my long time friend Stanford Rigby the Third." Stanford bowed his head. "We were in the neighbourhood, and we were wondering if there were any vacant positions in your faculty. Myself, I am a bit of a science whiz, but my main area of expertise is physics. Stanford here used to be a lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing at Oxford University." Stanford smiled.

"Seven years of moulding minds under my belt, sir." He announced with a certain degree of pride.

(Flood protection)

@Sideslash: "Ah, Pardon me Doctor Zarek. As a matter of a fact there is. We've only just began taking applications." He nods to the servant respectfully, "I must say, I'm impressed sir.You both seem almost over qualified. May I ask what drew you to this particular school?"

@Clara Mass: BULL xD make a student alt, we need some

@Tellumo: Course

#50 Posted by Sideslash (5907 posts) - - Show Bio

@Devlin_Academy: Archeron shared a glimpse with Stanford. "Well, more than anything, it's really the nature of students here." Archeron smiled as warmly as he could manage. "You see, I am myself what has been termed a meta-human." Stanford was shocked that Archeron was revealing himself so openly. "In addition, if our application for teaching posts were to be accepted, I would like to offer an optional workshop to the children. It involves a matter close to my heart."
