Well, everyone else is doing this, so I don’t see why I shouldn’t.
Maybe Rosalinda should try to get adopted by the family.
This is close enough to family for Oliver. The Metal Heads When Oliver first arrived at Earth, he landed in the backyard of a small house in a rural area outside of San Diego. One of the residents of the house, Gregory Parsons, lost the nose-goes to check it out, and upon discovering the small crater was caused by a teenage boy, he remarked that "it was metal as fuck." He got the other two people there to take Oliver in and put him on the couch. Oliver lived with these men for a couple years, until a run-in with some aliens put him on Saint Academy's radar.

The Freisch Family
Josef Mikael's grandfather. An older man, who immigrated from Germany around the 1930s for fairly obvious reasons. Met and married a fellow immigrant, and took up residence in a small town. Had one child, Amadea. After his wife's passing, Josef became more closed off and bitter, and grew increasingly distrusting of outsiders. When his daughter died as well, Josef was utterly broken. A shell of a man, he raised Mikael alone, and many of his neuroses passed on to the boy, though Mikael is aware of this and tries to be a better man than Josef is. Josef overheard Amadea calling her lover his true name, Zamiel, so even though she never told him that Mikael's father was a demon, he knew of the boy's heritage all along.
Claudia Mikael's late grandmother. By all accounts a kindly woman who liked quiet and solitude.
Amadea Mikael's mother, who passed away when he was three from some unknown disease. She was always warm and loving, and after her mother's death she acted as a calming influence on her father. With her passing Josef became Mikael's guardian. The circumstances surrounding her death are odd - the doctors couldn't identify what was actually afflicting her, and due to the supposedly rapid necrosis of her flesh, her body was cremated rather than buried with her mother's. Josef suspects that she was whisked away to Hell by her lover. Amadea intended to tell Mikael of his heritage when he was older (though she'd never say it, she was almost hoping Josef would pass on before she revealed it, as she knew he wouldn't approve of Mikael's half-demon nature).
Zamiel The Black Huntsman. A demon spoken of in Germanic folklore (he may also be the same demon who tempted Faust, acting under the pseudonym Mephistopheles). Mikael's true father, who approached Amadea in human guise under the name 'Zack'. Why he fathered Mikael is unknown, but he mentioned wanting children (note the plural) - and there's a decent chance Amadea knew his specific reasons. Amadea was certainly aware of Zamiel's true identity, even though he'd left her before Mikael was born.
Morgoth Mikael's half sister, daughter of Zamiel. Part of the Lethal Legion. Revealed Mikael's demonic heritage to him.
DEMON SUPPORT GROUP
Killgore the Defiler: Killgore may look and sound imposing, but he's really a big softy. While he looks like your layman's idea of the Devil — large, burly, horns, hairy legs, cloven hoofs, the works — and may talk the talk, he's really the sweetest guy you could find. When he isn't out having adventures in the multiverse anyway. But if you piss him off or threaten one of his charges, he'll become every bit the Devil he appears to be. Speaking of charges, he also heads the Demon Support Group at Saint Academy, helping its members comes to terms with their demonic urges and the new eternal life that awaits them. Also makes some mean brownies.
Ellie: Ellie, like most demons, was born and raised in the Abyss. For a while, she was content to just do what most Abyssal Demons did for a living; slaughter people for fun, backstab as many people as possible for power and control, and when they were really in a good mood, have sex. However, there were some demons who wanted to break free of the ways of the past. Who didn't want to be seen as just shameless hedonists and amoral monsters. Of course, being of the Abyss meant that even the best demon still wasn't exactly a shining bastion of morality, but they still tried. And upon getting wind of this, Ellie thought that perhaps it wasn't such a bad idea. She only did what she did because that's how things were done. But what if there was another way? What if the way she did things was wrong? What if there was a way to live that didn't involve stepping on as many puppies as possible? And she decided that she wanted that life. When she did, she moved to our world, intent on becoming a hero and showing everyone that not all demons were monsters. And SA was the best place for her to learn how to do just that. Not long after, she met Mikael. And the rest was history.
Jezebel: Jezebel is a punk, plain and simple. She's rude, crude, and doesn't take any shit. Bozo and the others only managed to get her out of the Abyss at the last second, so among all the demons at SA, she had by far the biggest personality adjustment. And she knows it. And hates it. She knows she used to be the sweetest thing imaginable and part of her still wants to be that. But she can't be. Not anymore. Because of this, she has an intense sense of self-loathing, hating herself for not just for what she is but rather who she is and what she's become. She's trapped in a spire of misery, and the only way out of it is to accept the person she's become and move on. Which is harder than it looks. Sometimes she thinks of entering the Abyss again and losing what little humanity she has left, just so she'd start loving herself instead of hating what she is. But she can't bring herself to. Aside from the usual, Jezebel can also generate explosions with her fists and hooves on contact. These explosions don't hurt her in the least, but they're deadly against her enemies.

Sam's Family and a friend (WIP).
One of the most intriguing aspects of Lucy's family is their abnormally potent willpower, which seems to be the source of their powers.
Manifestation of powers depend on their abnormal willpower reaching a peak, to which it seems that whatever their strongest obsession or interest is will be the basis of the new supernatural ability. For example, Lucy's obsession with artistry, painting, and drawing was brought to the surface during the bully incident once her willpower reached a peak under her intense instinct to protect her brother, awakening her ink powers. David too had an obsession, that of theoretical physics, quantum mechanics and obscure matter and energies discovered across the scientific field, which manifested into zero-point energy manipulation after the bully incident as well.
The extent of the abilities seem to depend on the initial awakening, although they may grow stronger over time. Due to Lucy focusing all her willpower on protecting her brother, her powers manifested in an incredibly developed state, while David's shock and stress manifested a power on a much lesser level to his sister's, in fact one so young in development that he hasn't even noticed its existence yet.
It is unknown where this ability to manifest powers based purely on willpower comes from, but the most likely source is Lucy's family on her father's side. Due to Jane's refusal to discuss her late husband, let alone any history of his family, this has yet to be confirmed.

MSA's world isn't exactly the same as the one we know. Thanks to a combination of refugees from other dimensions, visitors from other planets, and once seemingly mythical races becoming very distinct realities, non-humans have gradually become commonplace. At first, such races were subject to mass discrimination and dehumanization, but over the years, there's been a lot of progress. Largely thanks to Superheroes of all different sorts popularising freaks and weirdos over a grand total of 80 years. (And counting.)
Today, what was once the Supernatural is now simply natural, and the very term itself is seen as an offensive slur. It's not too uncommon to see an alien working at a supermarket or a demon flying overhead in the suburbs, or for a werewolf to be acting as a nature guide. There have even been whole new laws enacted to support and protect non-humans, chief among them being that non-humans are able to run around starkers as long as they aren't showing anything deemed inappropriate. Of course, this has raised concerns of a double-standard in some circles, but progress isn't made overnight. Maybe in another 80 years or so...
Of course, not everyone feels the same way about non-humans. There are still those who see such beings as unnatural. As unholy abominations that go against their very way of life. Others still live in isolated communities, largely being kept away from the more fantastical parts of their world and being less receptive to anything that isn't 'normal'. Sapient non-humans are very hard for them to get used to if they can at all. In any case, there are enough of them that every so often, some group of radicals or another pops up, intent on returning things to the way they were before Saint popped up on the scene and ushered in a new age. But try as they might, it's not so easy to turn back the clock. Non-humans are here to stay, for better or worse. (Though probably for the better.)
Additionally, many non-humans see going nude not just as being comfortable or natural, but as making a statement. That they aren't afraid to be what they are. Additionally, putting on clothes is fine for non-humans with visible genetalia, but for those without, it's looking down on as conforming to the human's standards. The ideal goal for most non-humans is to integrate themselves into human society while still keeping their culture and individuality, and it's that side of things that tends to get the most attention.
Speaking of culture, non-humans have affected it dramatically. Sci-fi and fantasy have largely been absorbed into just general fiction, and shows like Star Trek or Supernatural either don't exist or have been altered dramatically. Non-humans have also created shows and works of their own, some of which have started to break into the mainstream.

Aka Ace Atwood, superhero, model and movie star. Born into a wealthy family and blessed with profitably good looks, Ace had a pretty blessed life but wanted more. He used his money to commission a suit of power armour and became a superhero. However, on numerous occasions he's proved himself to hardly be a bastion of justice, regularly using his heroics to improve his own reputation or even his finances. Because of this he's got a pretty bad reputation among other supers, though he's been active as a hero for about five years. If you ask him, he turned down an invitation to join the Protectors but some people might say otherwise.
When Caleb and Harmony crashed to Earth, he was among the first to respond by sheer coincidence. He managed to stick around and, seeing an opportunity to improve his reputation, offered to mentor the pair. However, he isn't exactly a good example so this mostly manifests as money and an occasional phone call.
Wards on the Dormitory Well, our daeva noted that the students fight rather less well when asleep, and with that in mind, she spent a good part of the first week digging a ditch around the place and pasting parchment to the walls for a reason.
