Welcome to Dragon Helix Academy
This is an alternate world. A world where magic has been prominent and accepted for century's, leading to new religious veiws, scientific studies, and an advanced civilization. Magic in this world is understood to come from within the Earth, running along special invisible lines that give off certain energies, known as Dragon Force Veins. Over time some people have become unwittingly exposed to the energies given off by the Dragon Force, and have since adapted to it's properties. These people have an entire third Helix, known commonly as the Dragon Helix. The third Helix in their DNA allows them to utelize the energies of the Dragon Force in several different ways, and because we haven't always known about these things, it was simply called Magic, and is still called that today.
Dragon Helix Academy is a special school for these people who come from around the world to study and develop the natural abilities they possess. With today's testing, the Dragon Helix can be seen even before birth, and often new borns are accepted into the academy, although people who develop a Dragon Helix later in life can come for up to 2 years of private courses. Dragon Helix bearers are often trained right into their feild, the Acedamy ranges from PreSchool to College and offers hands-on job training and involvement. Most students live at the Academy, as it has anything a city would provide, from shopping areas, to dorms, to some small work places, as well as redreational areas and activities.
And then there's what people don't know about Dragon Helix Academy. The fact that it's Headmaster is possesed by an ancient spirit, trying to form an army of mindless DF users to enslave the normal world and use their souls to bring it to life. At the same time, a group of religious brain-wasing zealots are infiltrating the school, trying to spark a war and invoke mass genocide. Even more than this will come to light as the students survive their years at the Dragon Helix Academy.
