Originally, as I stated, Hetia was merely a place for clans to send the evolved of the clans to in hopes of hiding them. However, this isn't the case today. Now Hetia is a world renowned school that teaches prowess of all kinds. Over the years, may different types of abilities have surfaced and been recorded. It is said that the first psychic wasn't Hetia, in fact but a Gypsy from the 1500s. Others rumour that was just the first recorded case, which is more likely. Nonetheless, we here at Hetia welcome people with all different powers into the ranks amongst us. However, we have found that they normally fall into categories and are similar to others. I'll list them for you.
Magic users: These are people that range from creating objects from thin air to people who can use elements. Many people have variations of this skill and often have fallen into this class. However, it can be mistaken that as Psychic is amongst these users. This isn't true. People who are psychic often try to come to this class and are immediately distraught that they can't do the same as the other students, simple spells. There are basic things that all magic users can do: levitate, conjure small objects like pens and paper, even to an extent do parlor tricks. Psychics can rarely do this and those that can normally have duel specialties. We'll get more indepth shortly on this.
Science: These are where the Psychics, Alchemist, Rune Users, and many more like them reside. People whose minds are farther evolved than those of their clan, using the brain rather than people connected to the spirit world that can do magic or shape-shift. These people can also be good at identifying poisons, seeing traps, and even figuring out invention. They often are mistaken for gadget experts, cooks, or magic-users but lacking the basic skills of these classes. Basic Skills: Formulations of Equations.
Cooks: People who just naturally know what to put in a recipe to make something. They also have a knack for one specific trait, though it isn't impossible to have many. Meaning, if they are a poison cook they are best as poisons. Rarely can they cook good spells, potions, and healthy things. This also is where a witch would fall. Due to the fact that witches normally rely on cooking to do a spell, words just are a finishing touches. Though normally a person only specializes in one skill - many have been known to find two or three specialties and go off to be famous chefs.
Math: These people are the ones who are engineers and often the scientists. You'd think that in science, that's where they fall but no. Science in Hetia is for the farther evolved brain while Math tend to focus on the accounting and financials. Often these students turn into CEOs and Business Gurus. Their basic skill most obviously is fast manipulation of numbers.
Gadgets: These are the students who around 3 weeks are already tinkering, taking apart, and repairing things for the better. Naturally good with their hands, they tend not to need instruction on how to create. They merely do so. They branch out in the logistics of matters yet miss the basic need for numbers and exact figures in their formulations of invention.
Racing: Naturally needing to be chaotic, to be on the go, and find adventure. They often are the students who are delinquents, who've found their home in a chaotic world. From an early age these students can be identified via bullying, lack of any other obvious traits, and apparent lack of intelligence. However, once they are within range of any vehicle. They become masters of their craft. It is REQUIRED that they are outside most of the day and are routey as they need to be risky in driving and testing the latest moves on their bikes, cars, and even jets. These are normally the military recruits later on in life.
Music: With soft voices that tend to swirl around and fill you, these students are often easily spotted. They tend to spend most of their time silent due to wanting to preserve their voice and often thought to be mute when young. These are musicians who are just naturally good at what they do. They control the sound waves and naturally know the chords to hit on their instrument to use as a weapon as well as to entertain.
Shape Shifting: The name explains itself. I don't think I need to give much data on this. Unlike the Science or Magic Users, this has more to do with the direct connection with nature. Users of this skill can talk to animals as well as change into them. Often as well, they'll be put in the magic class and asked to summon and object and from long periods of thinking hard on it they turn into the inanimate object - this is often how they are spotted.
Art/Theatre: These are the clowns and drama queens. From the person who becomes someone else on stage to the person who's art comes to life and fights for them in a battle field - these are the people who often become celebrities. Many times they are the people who are said to never age due to their masterfully drawn clones of themselves to live on forever.
Languages: These are normally people who by the age of 5 speak 20 different languages fluently. They also are very versatile in cultures, determined to travel. This is a special trait due to the fact that no one has ever taught them, they can naturally read ancient runes and texts, and the have a deep connection to latin and other nearly forgotten tongues.
Melee: If they don't fit in racing, they have to go somewhere. Melee. Children who instantly known how to take down an enemy end up here. These children are often thrown into racing and until a signature move erupts from them, this is where they stay. Normally, unlike racers, these signature moves don't rely on a bike but rather their physical hands or feet - normally endangering to others within a vehicles or themselves. They are then removed from Racing and Taken to the Melee Fighters Sector.
Racing Class Being Taught
With all these different classes and power types come the different teacher. Many of the teachers are students that were the best in their class and became renowned before returning to the school. It is a privilege and a honour to work with Hetia staff after you graduate due to the fact that many who aren't skilled enough after they graduate or are kicked out at 19, have their memories drained from them so that they can't cause any problems for students as they come into the gates. It is a defense mechanism that was placed on the school after an incident with a delinquent that refused to learn, set fire to the old gym of the school.
Music and Magic Student.
Put Your Game Face On!
Often melee, magic, art, and magic students are instructed how to do a craft and expected to show it off in combat instantly. Naturally, it is done better by some than others. It is a natural thing that if you have more refined skills you will be better but in the picture below, this is a 1st year student out preforming a 8th year. It can happen that you just have natural abilities regardless or year and nobility, therefore it isn't shocking if you out preform. Don't be afraid to give it your all no matter what, you may surprise yourself and land among the Highest Ranking if you do.
Racing and ShaPe-Shifting Teachers Together
Many of the teachers are also licensed to kill. It is a well known fact that the Racing teacher is still in the army on active duty, as well as her shape-shifting husband (as Photographed below) and both will be called away for long periods at a time leaving the students with substitutes just as qualified.
Not only do we accept all races into our world but Hetia accepts children from an early age. My younger sister is only 3 and she is already enrolled, taken into the young preschool and being taught combat as we speak.
