"I was partially bored. I guess that my unusual routine around here got me used to being more... Active. But it was a good summer, I had the opportunity of enjoying some time with my uncle, travel a little bit with him. But I can't say it was anything near the routine here."

"M-mate...?" Sophia somehow paled and blushed at the same time "A-as in...y-you're kidding, right? Right?!"


Henry noticed her nervousness. He needed to calm her down, he didn't want to frighten her in her first day.

"I'm afraid I'm not. But look on the good side, you might end up making up a friend. It is the majority of the cases actually. I won't lie to you: In the first days it's a strange sensation, but you get used to it."

She was blushing heavily at this point. "I-I think I need to find the restroom..."

It wasn't often that she encountered a student so nervous as this, leading her to observe her surroundings for any odd goings-on. Finding none, she turned back to Shaun, an emerald glow in her eyes. "Sorry for any awkwardness here, bud. Welcome to the Mana Academy." she stated, putting on an inviting smile for the newcomer. Nero climbed down the side of Aria's cloak and reached the ground, landing soundlessly on the stone road.

Shaun looked at Nero as the young dragon landed on the ground. He then gazed his attention back at the young woman. Even though he had social anxiety and was very introverted, he could look a person dead in their eyes and not feel nervous or worried about them. But when spoken to and forced to have a conversation, that's where all hell breaks loose. "Thank you." Shaun said quietly, but just enough for her to hear him.

Letting out a small sigh, Aria picked up her pet again, as it had started to growl at Leon. Petting the drakeling on the head, Aria asked in a soft voice, "You're not very talkative, are ya, bud?" She had hoped to get a decent reaction out of Shaun. She didn't want to make him nervous at all, quite the opposite. Aria liked to make students feel at home in their surroundings, away from their families. However, to her, this one simply seemed shy, but she was hopeful that she could get Shaun out of his shell.

Henry's tone of voice changed to a calmer one, trying to pass his calm to the girl.

"Miss, do you need any help with anything? Listen, I know that the first says here maybe very... Different. I've been here for only one year, but I think I can tell you that. I know, maybe you're afraid of being paired with someone strange, or someone that might not like you. But it'll work out by itself,you'll see."

He hoped that his improvised speech might work out with Sophia.

"Y-yeah...It's just a little sudden..." She chuckled nervously "That's all."

Leon looked at Nero with an uninterested nor scared of it's growling; Shaun looked down as Leon slowly and quietly walked up to his leg and laid down and relaxed. Shaun sighed as he did this before talking to Aria. "Yeah, I'm not the sociable kind of guy. I'm pretty awful at small talk and just talking to strangers in general." He said rubbing the back of his head with his left arm while slightly turning pink in embarrassment. "Yeah, I'm sorry." He said turning away from her while awkwardly chuckling.

"Guess I don't need this disguise then." He slowly morphed back into his original self "You're a smart one, da?" He gave Jace a few pats on the head before asking him another question "Do you feel that? A sense of... danger? Fear? Destruction?"
Jace glared at the teacher. Teacher or not, he had made Jace annoyed with both his fake Russain-is and the pats.

"Sounds good," she replied. "Actually I have one last question! How good are you at combative magics?"
"Combat magic, I do not know what you mean by... combat magic. I can do some offenzive and defenzive stuff, but I have not been trained offecially."

He sighed "I am Russian you know. I still am technically a citizen of Russia. I never applied for another one."

Victor walked as fast as he could, but fast enough to keep the furry creature in his arms. He knew where Matthew was, and wanted him to be the first to know of the creatures he obtained, and walked toward him. " Matthew, we need to talk about.... this." He showed Matthew the small creature.

The old smile reappeared on Aria's pale face again. "See? That wasn't so hard." she said, nuzzling the small, scaly Nero to calm him down. Slowly, the growling ceased as her gentle touch halted the beast's hostility, even sounding a slight purr like one might hear from a cat. "Sorry about that, bud. I seem to have lost my manners. I am Aria."

"Undoubtedly, it is. I hope that you feel comfortable while here, Sophia."

He wasn't lying: He tried his best to make the newcomers comfortable while they were at the Academy. He wished the same for Sophia, who seemed to be a good person after all.

He smiled at her, looking sort of inviting, though he was still nervous and anxious; he regained his composure before speaking to Aria. "Hi Aria; I'm Shaun." This time, he said it with more loudness and confidence in his voice; but just enough for Aria to actually hear him. Leon's lion head was fast asleep while his goat head and his snake tail relaxed and watched the two. Shaun carefully picked up Leon and cradled him in his arms while the lion still slept and the goat and snake just enjoyed it.

Aria calmly held little Nero in her arms, whispering a few words under her breath and putting him into a light sleep. The drakeling had been trained well, and if the correct commands were given to it, one could effectively control it's very mind, a fact that Aria herself had discovered throughout having Nero as a pet and companion. "Well then, Shaun, did you need a tour of the place? I'd be more than happy to provide." Aria smiled warmly at Shaun, glad that she finally was able to get through to him, and even more hopeful that she could find a friend in him.

Catherine de Sanguine Vivere

Catherine had come far since her first year at Mana. Her mastery of her own body was unrivaled at the school. She had been flying above the new arrivals on raven wings of her own blood. Seemed that the school had quite the eclectic crop of 1st years. Catherine her self had never actually experienced what the first day at Mana was like. She had arrived in October last year. Some times she looks back on that as a blessing, since she had avoided the affair with Jack just weeks prior.
Catherine caught sight of Aria talking with a group of people. She hadn't seen Aria since school ended, Catherine had bought a Condo in Chicago to stay in over the summer, while she assumed Aria had gone back to be with her family. There was no doubt that Aria would recognize her, Catherine had a very distinct appearance. She was just over 6' tall, with deep black hair and eyes as red as her blood. What she was showing of her pale, porcelain skin was covered in Arcane runes. They varied in color from the black of a clear night sky, to the bright red of fresh cuts. She gently came to ground and the new student with Aria.
"Aria good to see you here."
She turned to the new student.
"Hello, I am Catherine de Sanguine Vivere. Mana Academy's finest, if only blood mage."

He looked up from stroking Leon and gave a wane smile at Aria. He was slowly but surely starting to warm up to Aria. "Yeah. I'm new here, so a visual layout of the place will be helpful." He chuckled. He looked at his luggage and then back at Leon. He looked at the goat and smiled. The kid bleated and soon the lion cup woke up. He looked around before yawning and stretching, digging his nails into Shaun's arm. Shaun placed Leon on the grown so that he can walk and get his nails out of him, and grabbed his backpack, suitcase, and duffle bag. He waited for Aria to move, still a little afraid to go himself.

"Hello, I am Catherine de Sanguine Vivere. Mana Academy's finest, if only blood mage."

Marvelling a little at the sight of Catherine's arrival, Aria waved up at Catherine as she began her descent onto the cobblestone roads and the final landing. "It's nice to see you back, Cathy." she said, trying to sound casual in the wake of an impressive feat of blood magic. "I gotta say, you are damn good at making an entrance these days." Aria laughed to herself, even happier to see another familiar face before her. She had forged something of a bond between the two of them, with Aria once having dabbled in dark magic, and Catherine shunned for her use of her own body as a weapon, the two had been able to find a common ground through all the time that they spent in the Academy last year.

I only hope that we don't have an infestation of their.... adult selves." Victor said as he remembered what these cute creatures became when they matured.

"Well then, let's start at the beginning. Not like there's really any other place to start." Aria said jokingly. "Where we stand now is the courtyard, where some of the students go to spend their free time in the outdoors. Though by now, I assume you've picked up on that. This island also has the four dormitories, one for each House, along with the Library, where you can find pretty much anything you'd need for Casting." she explained, turning her back on Shaun and exposing the symbol on the back of her scarlet cape as she walked him through the grassy courtyard, not far from the Gates.

"I know, I know, but after the students care for them that night, I will be giving them their dues by exposing them to sunlight. Then this will all be behind us. Besides, these kids are smart. I doubt that feed them after midnight." Victor explained. He was still unsure if he should give them, as he had seen their power, but still decided that they were smart enough to care for a mogwai.

Leon lead the way for Shaun following Aria and playfully trotted behind her. Shaun looked at the symbol on her cape for a moment before he grabbed the rest of his things and followed the three. He sighed quietly to himself, still feeling uneasy.
