The magical island of Graveholm, hidden from human eyes, is home to all sorts of creatures. Ghosts, vampires, dragons, werewolves, and many more creatures of myth live here to hide from humans, only leaving to scare humans or whatever else they do. Whatever the creature, they don't have a very good relationship with humans...
Until now. One of the monsters has decided to lead the monsters in integrating into human society. To do that, they need to learn human things, in a human way. Monster school is about to begin.
A strange creature roams around by herself. She's covered in shaggy dark gray fur, with no visible feet. For arms, she has four tentacles. She's slinking around the courtyard silently, wondering who she can talk to...
Just nearby this so called strange creature is a definite spider. Well. An anthropomorphic spider.
Well, a specific kind of anthropomorphic spider.
Well, point is, he's there but he doesn't seem to pay anybody attention. He sits there, one of his eight eyes cut to shit (you don't notice this stuff when you have seven spares) and in a pretty cheap looking suit and hat.
A small, purple winged demon in a top hat and bow tie is also flying around nearby.
(A short fish-like creature (cyan and with four limbs) climbs in through a hole in the fence and lands on the ground with a splat. He sits up on his back end and begins eating a trash can (contents and all) while observing the antics of the various monsters in the courtyard, not expecting to be spoken to.)
The shaggy creature notices the spider and the demon first. Taking a deep breath, she starts walking closer to them, trying to decide which one to greet first.
A seemingly normal(?) young woman with long white hair and a school uniform that conceals most of her body is standing by the fence where the fishlike creature plops in. She observes him curiously, not saying a word.
"... Oh no, they're coming this way." The spider mumbles, pulling out a cigarette and taking a long drag, seeming to be already lit.
Meanwhike in a nearby pond, something stirs. A stalked eye slowly emerges from the depths and watches the ceremony.
Looking for someone to talk to, the demon approaches the shaggy creature, flapping his wings.
"Uh, hey there!" he says with an awkward grin.
The creature smiles and breathes a sigh of relief. She's glad that the demon started the conversation for her.
"Ah... hello! Nice to meet you. I'm Alice."

(The fish-like creature notices the woman he ended up not far from after entering and shifts nervously, burying his face into the garbage can he's still eating.)
A small green slime slowly crawls along the ground, seemingly minding its own business.
(A purple creature with round ears, blue hair, even bluer eyes, and a golden dress with pants and shoes rushes in. She had accidentally slept in a bit longer.) "Hi, sorry I'm late..."
The woman blinks, before smiling brightly.
"...Hello! What's your name?"
....Uh...Diogenes.... (The fish creature slowly says to the woman.)

The spider looks to the purple lady, shrugging. "You're cool, nobody actually cares if you show up to these things or not."
(The creature smiles.) "Thanks... I'm Dwina, by the way."
"Mhm," the spider responds, taking another puff from the cigarette.
"Name's, uh... Ted... Teddy," the demon says to Alice. "Nice to meet ya. Uh, do you know what they called us here for? I think I wasn't paying attention when they explained it..."
"Nice to meet you! I'm..." It seems like she has to take a second to remember it. "... Lelia. Lelia, that was it.." She holds out her hand for him to shake.
Alice shrugs. "I'm not sure," she says to Teddy. "All I really know is that it's called 'school' and it's a thing humans do. Sounds fun, though. I think Count Cardalu is going to explain it better, whenever he shows up."
(Diogenes stares at Lelia's outstretched hand for a moment before hesitantly reaching out his nubby hand to return her handshake. He still doesn't say much.)
"So, what brings you to this school?" She continues, seemingly not noticing Diogenes' nervousness.
After trying to explain things to Teddy, Alice notices a blob next to her.
Alice slowly reaches over and gently boops it.
The instant that Alice comes into contact with the little blob, there should be a sudden, warm, fuzzy sensation in her head. … "Hello."
