On the planet Earth, the human race goes on about their business, working day and night for a family and to live a normal life. It seems all good but the mortals are blind and oblivious to an entire different world on the same planet. A world where witches, wizards and people with powers exists. Where vampires, werewolves, goblins and everything that mortals believe is a fairytale, is more then real lurking in the darkness. And they are oblivious to an Academy, suited in the heart of America hidden deep in a rainforest, a place with only a few towns around the rainforest. The Academy of Magic and Abilities, known as Witchborne Academy, despite it's name it's only home to young witches but to people with many races and powers, to wizards and witches to people who have powers on their own, and don't need to chant anything to make something happened.
Students around the age of 13-18 are trained in the Magic Arts and all things related to the magical worlds, some are born right into it while others only just found out about their supernatural powers. They are trained to become stronger and to fight against the darkness, because they are what stands between an oblivious race and total annihilation of all things mortal.
Witchborne Academy isn't the only academy like it, there are a few smaller ones across Americas, and main Academies across the globe suited in Australia, Japan, China, Russia, England and other places, hidden away from the mortal eye. However Witchborne is known for creating it's most powerful heroes and legends, and hiring the best of the best staff.
Elves and Humans are the most commonly found at the Academies, due to the nature of Elves they are hidden well away from mortals, and their only choice of schooling are the ones such as Witchborne. Both Humans and Elves can be a witch, wizard, Mage or any magic user but most Elves are mostly Mages, while Humans dabble in the other areas of the Supernatural.
But not everything is good and pure. Outside of the Academies are dark beings, that would love to corrupt the students. Creatures such as demons and vampires, werewolves all wanting to destroy the force of Good and take over the mortal realm. Although the Academy can be safe, there is an Dark Overlord who lunges attacks against Witchborne Academy, and hundreds miles away is an Academy for the Dark Arts and evil.
OOC: You are all arriving to the school via train. Since it's loosely based with Harry Potter in mind, picture the Academy being similar to Hogwarts but with some changes.
It was the first day of Winter, and it meant for Witchborne Academy that it was starting up again, old and new students would be coming to the academy any minute via train, the first snowflake started falling on the ancient looking school, that was ruled for over two centuries. It's walls were a dull brick grey, pointy roofs pointed to the sky, one large part of the building held the dorms for everyone. Outside was a train station that would led the students straight to the doors of the Academy when it stopped.
The school grounds was large, the size of three football fields with tree covering most of it, to hide the Academy more from unwanted eyes, from the sky it looked like a patch of grass due to an illusion placed up by a powerful witch eons ago. An lake sat close to the trees as well, and among all of this had creatures that the mortal world never imagined to be real, pixies or Germits, little insects that were harmless but loved the feel of magic around them.
Kathany Moonscape stared out of a large window, from her office that overlooked the front part of the school, the inside of the school was magnificent, marble walls and marble floors with candles hanging up in every corner, the fire lit by magic and going strong. It was truly home to Kathany, the headmistress and known as the "Elven Goddess" despite not liking being called that. She could see the train coming from a few miles down and hear the horn blaring. It was a magic train that only came every few months to bring or take students and staff members.
"So.. the first day begins" Kathany whispered watching the train drawn closer before she headed out of her office and towards the first floor to see these students.
