The Ravenwood School of Magical Arts is the Spiral's most prestigious magical academy. The professors of Ravenwood are legendary wizards that can turn even the most unlikely student into a powerful wizard. Supported by Headmaster Merle Ambrose and a team of support staff, the Ravenwood professors are central to the player's story, especially the professor for your chosen school.
Headmaster Merle AmbroseSee Wizard101MainCharacters.
Professor Dalia Falmea
Professor of Fire Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- Didn't Think This Through: In a flashback dungeon, we see her as a newly-accepted Ravenwood student of the Ice school. She's a Fire Elf. It's later revealed that she was manipulated by the Maestro into choosing the Ice school, and the Wizard convinces her to switch to the Fire school.
- Ms. Fanservice: Female Fire Elves seem to have this in common. Her voice helps, too.
- Stern Teacher: Though much friendlier than Cyrus, her training quests reveal that she holds her students to a very high standard.
Professor Lydia Greyrose
Professor of Ice Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- All-Loving Hero: Makes cookies and knits robes for her students, and even sympathizes with the Gobblers trying to consume Colossus Boulevard.
- Cool Old Lady: Professor at the Spiral's greatest school of magic and a member of the Council of Light, along with Merle Ambrose. She also casually mentions hailing from a world full of candy.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Appears as a tiny, winged elderly woman. It's currently unknown if she's from the same race of fairies as the others present in the game.
Professor Halston Balestrom
Professor of Storm Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- Gadgeteer Genius: His defining characteristic. Several of the Storm school's training quests involve him sending you to collect parts for one of his new magical contraptions.
- Nice Hat: Always seen wearing his trademark purple top hat. The player can obtain the hat as a rare item drop from the Professor's Hoard pack.
- The Pollyanna: Halston was born into poverty as a member of Marleybone's working-class Frog race. In a flashback dungeon, he's shown to have been kidnapped and nearly killed by the crimelord Meowiarty's thugs as part of the Maestro's plan to alter the timeline. Throughout the entire Celestia storyline, his best friend Thurston Plunkett is missing and presumed dead. Despite all this, he's by far the most positive and energetic of the Ravenwood professors.
Professor Cyrus Drake
Professor of Myth Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- Bald of Awesome: After Ambrose, Morganthe and Malistaire, he's the most powerful wizard alive. He's completely bald. In one of the flashback dungeons, he's revealed to have once had a large "afro" hairstyle.
- Beef Gate: The player must duel Cyrus to prove their readiness to face his brother Malistaire in the fortress world of Dragonspyre. If the player doesn't know what they're doing or is severely underleveled, it can take a few tries.
- Big Good: Of the world of Dragonspyre— he assists the Wizard from the Basilica in their efforts to bypass the ruined city's defenses and apprehend Malistaire.
- Cynical Mentor: Extremely so. The first Myth training quest is literally impossible to initially complete. Even non-Myth students are still treated with disdain at best.
- Establishing Character Moment: During the Cyclops Lane questline, where he would rather have you do his laundry run and turn in an expulsion letter to Ambrose than show any concern about the students General Akilles holds prisoner.
- Expy: Especially in the early quest lines, his personality is very clearly based on that of Severus Snape.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although he's definitely a colossal Jerkass, he does care for his brother Malistaire. He also develops a reluctant bond with a Myth-aligned player (albeit very slowly.)
Professor Moolinda Wu
Professor of Life Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- Hippie Teacher: Prefers to share her knowledge of Life magic with her students through meditation and contemplation, in accordance with the traditions of her home world of Mooshu.
- Magical Asian: Although not truly Asian (or human at all), her Asian voice actress, tendency to assign students to meditation/tests of focus, and homeworld of Feudal Japan-inspired Mooshu qualify her for this trope.
- Unexpected Successor: Hired as the Life professor after her predecessor, Sylvia Drake, unexpectedly passes away from disease. She does a good job, though.
Assistant Professor Dworgyn
Interim Professor of Death Magic at the Ravenwood School.
- Beleaguered Assistant: Spent his early life as a domestic slave to his "aunts" in Darkmoor, then began his teaching career as an assistant to the notoriously overbearing Malistaire Drake. It's no wonder he's uneasy as an independent instructor.
- The Igor: Formerly to Malistaire, and as revealed to Necromancers, even earlier to Dr. Von Katzenstein. As the interim Death Professor, he begins to grow out of this role over the course of the Death training quests, eventually becoming a powerful Necromancer in his own right.
- Noob: He was originally Malistaire Drake's teaching assistant, and is still adjusting to his role as his interim replacement. During Death Wizards' graduation quest, he mentions that they've taught him as much, if not more as they have learned from him.
Professor of Balance Magic at the Ravenwood School's Krokotopia location.
- Badass Grandpa: His full name is Ravak al Hazred, Grandmaster of the Order of the Fang, a group of Krok sages that predates the Council of Light.
- Eccentric Mentor: The vast majority of his lessons don't make any sense until after they've been completed, if at all.
- Expy: In Name Only, literally. He shares his name with Abdul Alhazred, the Mad Oracle responsible for writing the Necronomicon in H. P. Lovecraft's legendarium.
- Grumpy Old Man: Starts out this way, though he quickly warms to a Balance-aligned player.
Duelmaster Diego Santiago Quariquez Ramirez III
Duelmaster of the Ravenwood School.
- The Announcer: His primary responsibility is to teach students to use their magic in a combat environment, but he also enjoys emceeing PvP battles and tournaments. Passionately.
- Badass in Charge: As well as being a renowned magical duelist, he's also the leader of the Wizard City Guard. It's later revealed that he's a member of the Council of Light.
- Flynning: In the Dueling Diego minigame, the player controls Diego as he flashily sword-fights several pirate-themed enemies.
- Large Ham: Inigo Montoya in unicorn form. He's grandstanding, charismatic and loves to offer elaborate "advice" to practicing students.
- Overly Long Name: Lampshaded in the Abracadoodle comic on the website.
School Librarian Harold Argleston
Librarian of the Ravenwood School.
- Gentleman and a Scholar: A proper Marleybonian through and through, his favorite things in life include crossword puzzles, rare antiquities and tea with biscuits. He also wrote his own favorite book.
- Muggles Do It Better: He's not a wizard himself, but he's efficiently categorized the enormous selection of books in the Wizard City Library, and has a team of student interns to handle the magical part of the job.
- The Stoic: Rarely displays much emotion, even when possessed Ravenwood students steal the Book of Lost Pages from his Library and proceed to wreak havoc on Wizard City.
Registrar of the Ravenwood School.
- Face of a Thug: Looks perpetually irritated, but is in reality extremely helpful and dedicated to the students under his care.
- Mr. Exposition: Even though he isn't a wizard himself, he'll frequently give the player tips about how to use their magic (as well as general gameplay advice.)
- Skill Point Reset: For a significant fee, Mr. Lincoln can reset a wizard's training points, allowing them to completely respec all their off-school spells.
