Schola Praeditos



Boasting over one hundred years of existence, Schola Praeditos is Pandora's original school for the preternaturally gifted, located atop a floating island high above the Crystal Vales. Making use of an old castle-mansion which has been refurbished into a functional school, it houses gifted individuals of all sorts, from wizards to mutants to supernatural creatures who are interested in learning in a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment for all of their kinds. The island is protected by powerful wards, preventing entry via magical or physical means. The only point of public entry is through the gatehouse.


NOTE: If you would like your character to work there or attend the school, check out the job listings and the group linked above for more information. Sign up via the Cascade Bay sign ups!

Quick Facts
  • The school opened on September 5, Y5.
  • Enrollment is free. Funding is received from several parties in Pandora.
  • Powerful magic wards surround the island, leaving the only way on and off via The Gatehouse.
  • There is a poison dragon trapped beneath the school. Awkwardly, nobody knows. Not even Merlin.
  • The school has Wi-Fi thanks to the genius of Wanda Maximoff and Otherworld wormholes.

The Island



Schola Praeditos can be found on one of the larger floating islands over the Crystal Vales in The Severed Haven. The island itself is five miles long and four miles wide, rich with vegetation, and is split into two by a river that surrounds the castle itself on three of its four sides. Despite there being no source to be found, the river continues to flow, water endlessly cascading off of the island's cliffsides. Surrounding the eastern portion of the grounds are fields with plenty of room for all sorts of activities, lounging or sports-related, willow trees dotting the grass the closer you are to the water. Beyond that, are the lush forests of the island, which while deemed safe for the most part, are not the most recommended of travel destinations after sundown, the woods known to turn its brave occupants around and get them undoubtedly lost.

Cliffs line the entirety of the island save for a beach on the north edge which can be reached either by followed the natural-made cliff path along the island’s coast or traveling directly through the forest. These cliff paths have been come to be known as the Praeditos Cliff Walk in their short time of discovery and exploration. Along the Cliff Walk is a smaller separate building overlooking the Crystal Vales far below called The Gatehouse. With the combined efforts of both Merlin and Balthazar Blake, the entirety of the island has been warded to prevent any form of entry, teleportation included, for the safety of the school's students. This small castle is the only place on the island where teleportation is both allowed and closely monitored.

The Wards

The entirety of the island has been warded to prevent not only teleportation but the ability to simply walk onto it. The Gatehouse is the only place on the island any flying sailboat, dragon, or otherwise may land. Any attempt to break through the barrier will alert a member of faculty to an unauthorized presence.
