“You have all come here to become Huntsman and Huntresses, however most of you will likely die out there so that is why you must learn to fight monsters.”
- Nichole Geiger, Headmistress of Beacon Academy
Beacon Academy is the best training school for Hunters in the eastern end of Vale, Here Cadet Huntsmen and Huntresses come to learn how to fight monsters called Grimm. Students attend the training with the knowledge that death is a possible outcome but take the risk to become peace keepers of this world.
Dust: This is the magical element of the world, it is used for a wide variety of things and is mined from the ground. It can come in two forms, crystalline and in a powder, the crystals however are not as powerful as the powder but are less volatile and safer to handle. There are four elements of dust; Fire (Red), Water/Ice (Cyan), Lightning (Yellow), and Kinetic energy (White). It is the energy for everything from magic to bullets and machines.
Auras: The life force of the soul, everything with a soul has an Aura and through training it can be unlocked for to be used for a multitude of purposes, some use their Aura for healing, allowing them to recover from wounds. Other enhance their strength and agility or use it combined with dust for magical attacks. However a persons Aura is limited by the strength of their soul and can only use it to as far as their soul will allow.
Grimm: The monsters that plague Vytal. They have preyed upon humanity since the beginning of time and almost wiped out humans before the discovery of Dust. Grimm have no souls and it is believed that this is why they prey upon humans.
Vale: One of the four kingdoms of Vytal it is where Beacon academy is located, a large majority of the strongest hunters come from this kingdom, making it one of the safest havens from Grimm.
Hunters: The Peacekeepers and warriors against the monsters of Vytal, unlike the regular police force who handle civil unrest and mundane situations hunters are the ones who handle attacks by Grimm and at times act as special forces for the police in situations that are difficult for them to handle on their own.
Lien: The currency, for our purposes we will treat it as 1 lien = 1 euro.
Faunas: People with minor animal like traits, they are treated like second class citizens and are generally shunned.
All students are required to wear a uniform. The males wear black colored suits with a blue vest and white shirt and red tie. The females wear long stockings, which are an optional component, a red plaid skirt, and a brown jacket with a tan vest and white shirt. Students are given the freedom to customize their attire, scarves, cloaks, etc.
Regular attire is worn during combat exercises and training.
After arrival, new Cadet*Huntsmen and Huntresses*are deposited on a long, wide avenue leading up to what appears to be the main academy buildings and their large, impressive main doorway. The avenue is marked with trees and flag-draped light-poles. Beyond the doorway is a large, open-air amphitheatre. Within this is a raised platform upon which a speaker can address those standing below. This amphitheatre can also serve as a fighting arena, where the audience would stay on stands at the sides.
The most prominent part of the academy buildings is a large tower. This is surmounted by a signal light, the beacon which the institution is named after.
The academy also has large gardens, at the rear of the buildings, including a large pond surrounded by a path, where students are free to wander as they please.
Beacon Academy Statue:
The campus for Beacon Academy also includes a large statue featuring two figures, one a male and the other a younger female, standing on a rock outcropping. They are both dressed in a kind of robe with hoods over their heads. The male has a sword in his right hand and he is raising it up in a seemingly triumphant gesture. The younger female has a double-edged battle axe in her left hand. She is looking off to the side at something on the horizon. Below the two figures is a*Beowolf*looking in the same direction as the male with an arm in the air.*
Inside the Academy:
There is a grand assembly area where headmaster or headmistress addresses all the new students and a ballroom that doubles as a*living area that new students may sleep in until they are assigned proper quarters. A uni-sex locker room is also present, as well as a dining hall and washroom facilities.
The Beacon Academy has a lecture hall not unlike those found in universities.* In*Badge and Burden, we see a lecture hall with (apparently) antique drawings of the various known species of*Grimm.* This hall has sufficient space for practical demonstrations in front of the students' desks.
All the dorms at Beacon are co-ed dorms, with males and females sleeping in the same room. This is done to let all members of a team share the same living area. However they are cramped.
Beacon Academy uses the Emerald Forest as the location for its*Initiation*and some of the lesson. It is filled with dangerous wildlife.
You should know them, I know them so we are agreed on that much. Just don't don't anything to make everyone angry please.
