->Now you run a small private school of your own, where the teenage sons and daughters of the elite learn to become leaders. Graduates of your little academy all test in the 99th percentile; you also teach them how to lust without affection, analyze without compassion, and exploit others without remorse. Your charges become ambitious little sociopaths - and [[EducationMama their parents]] [[MisaimedFandom couldn't be happier]].

-> In truth, [[WizardingSchool St Gysrg's]] has an extensive extracurricular course of study in [[EvilSorcerer Nephandic]] approaches to magic and [[PowerOfTheVoid the Qlippothic Spheres]]. Most of this is reserved for the scholarship students - in reality, [[EnfantTerrible widderslainte]] who have been located and gathered in so that the process of [[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening Awakening]] can be expedited. Occasionally, one of the paying customers shows promise as well, but not often. Young widderslainte who are brought to the school are trained in the theory and practice of magic, as well as their unique theology and the details of [[SecretWar the Ascension War]]. They are also encouraged to make friends or otherwise get their hooks into their fellow students by whatever means necessary, as most of them have the potential to be useful down the road...

->But there was still the matter of what to do with a six-year-old orphan. The answer was the girl's school. In a manor house tucked away among Napa Valley vineyards, she found a [[OrphanageOfLove second home]]. They gave her clean white shirts and plaid skirts and a blue blazer bearing the crest of the [[SorcerousOverlord Northern California wizard-queen]]. At first, there were lessons in math and reading and lots of play and music. Mostly what she learned that year was to feel safe in the care of her teachers and to find comfort in the company of her classmates.
->In the second year, they started on foreign languages and the dialects of the Southern Kingdom.
->In the third year, physical training began in earnest.
->In the fourth year they added martial arts, drama and deportment.
->First aid and poisons came in the fifth year.
->In the sixth year, there were munitions and sabotage.
->Defense against magic began in the seventh year.
->Shooting and knife skills were added in the eighth.
->In the ninth year, driving lessons.
->In the tenth year, [[FantasticRecruitmentDrive the manticore came to visit.]]

->If you choose to do a degree (and some of the less gifted or less ambitious students don't, instead becoming our [[TheIgor laboratory assistants and gravediggers]]), you have a range of subjects to undertake, including: History of the Dead (fusty), History of Necromancy (almost as fusty), Toxicology (poisons), Theoretical Homicide (not ''strictly'' theoretical), Demonology (a farce), Mortuary Surgery, Reanimation, Experimental Necroscience, Vampiric Studies, the ever-popular [[{{Necromancer}} Necromancy and Necromonology]] (my chosen degree, which involves the study of and establishing control over the dead, the latter being in my opinion [[EvilIsNotAToy an ingredient missing from my peers' experiments]]).

->Hey, I know, we aren't supposed to talk about home. But we came from ''somewhere.'' The Battle School didn't create [[ChildProdigy us]], you know. The Battle School doesn't create ''anything''. [[TheCorruptor It just destroys]].
