Lucas Valor | Rugaru | 16 | Sophomore | FC: Harry Styles | OPEN

Like all Rugaru’s, Lucas has a craving for human flesh. It’s his second year at the academy and he has been learning to control his urges more and more. He’s a carefree guy and befriends people quickly. He likes a good party and enjoys making people laugh. You would never guess that  under all that charm is a carnivorous flesh-eater. 

Lucas’s parents divorced when he was young, leaving him to take care of his sickly mother and younger sisters. He didn’t think that going to the academy would help anyone and he insisted on staying at home. However, his mother pleaded with him and he finally gave in.     He wasn’t used to the strict rules, but he found the classes interesting. It turned out that he didn’t know basically anything when it came to his kind.

He doesn’t like that the humans won’t accept him as their equal, but he doesn’t hate them either. He understands the fear that they have because they’re different. All he wants is peace.

Demetri Castor | Vampire | 17 | Junior | FC: Hunter Parrish | OPEN

Demetri is utterly confused. Even with his heightened senses as a vampire, he never knows what’s going on around him. It’s not that he’s unintelligent, because he can be very smart in certain topics, he’s just unaware. He spaces out a lot; in class, during meals, occasionally even during conversations. It irritates most of the other students, but his close friends shrug his odd behavior off. Nobody is really sure of where it originated. There weren’t any tragic events in his home while growing up. It’s just the way he is. 

Demetri was bitten by a vampire when he was only ten years old. Never having to deal with this sort of thing before,—being as they were both mortals—his parents couldn’t quite understand what they were supposed to do, but they tried their best to make sure he was never treated any differently. When he was fourteen, he left to find the academy. He didn’t want to be a burden for his parents any longer. They begged for him to stay, saying things like, “We’ll work it out,” “We’ll get through this,” and “We won’t let this define us.” As if it was about them! Despite being frustrated and wishing to drop all contact, he still keeps in touch with them. He writes them letters and updates them on his life, mostly leaving out events that could provoke questioning, or telling white lies to keep from seeming suspiciously boring. Overall, he loves being at the academy and wishes to call no other place home—As if he could.

Zeke Christopher | Wendigo | 15 | Sophomore | FC: Zayn Malik |OPEN

Zeke hardly remembers being human, considering that it was so long ago. Hell, if it weren’t for what he was, he wouldn’t even think he had been human in the first place. But how could he forget the first time he consumed another human? His own brother? It’s not like he really had a choice, they were lost and starving. His brother was just so small, so weak. He wasn’t able to stop after that though. Once he regained his strength, human meat was all that would satisfy his hunger. Nobody knows; No one would understand. He disappeared from his home for weeks at a time, unable to face the reality of what his life had become. His parents wouldn’t stop the questioning. He just wanted out. He needed out. 

The change affected Zeke greatly, as it should. He’s detached from the world. He simply doesn’t care about anything, not even himself. It wouldn’t matter if he was told that his life was to end tomorrow. He would count the hours; the minutes; the seconds. He was forced into the academy for his own protection, but he didn’t want it. He thought himself an abomination. He would take his own life without hesitation if provided the opportunity. He treats the other students with such neutrality that no one really knows if he even has emotions. He speaks with a soft voice, but only when he has something important to say. Most have never even heard him speak.

Parmenia Sprout | Ghost | 14 | Freshman | FC: Amandla Stenberg |OPEN 

The name Parmenia means “intelligent”, and that’s exactly what she is. When she was alive, she was tutored by the most learned philosophers in her kingdom. Yes, kingdom. She was the daughter of a Duke and, therefore, very valuable. Value was her downfall, in the end. A group of men who despised her father captured Parmenia and killed her in an act of spite and jealousy. Wanting to make a statement, they took her in the night, and carried her to the woods just outside the walls of what she had always called home. Her body was found by her father on one of his early morning walks, and no expense was spared for her funeral. The kingdom mourned for weeks, unable to deal with the loss of such a young life. 

Parmenia wandered endlessly for days before stumbling upon Pupille de la Mort. The Headmistress welcomed her with open arms, and was glad to receive such a prestigious individual. At the academy, she helps the professors. History teachers come to her for validation of certain facts that were recently discovered. She’s adored by everyone on campus, as they find her intriguing and kind—the true daughter of the Duke. Though, there are a few people who hate her; they are jealous of the amount of love and attention she receives from the student body. This doesn’t affect her. She believes all are equal and intelligent with their own privilege to earn respect. Parmenia is kind, considerate, and acts responsibly; It’s simply in her nature to be courteous and polite—giving everyone a chance, ignoring whether or not they truly deserve it.

Iris Lowe | Fairy | 16 | Junior | FC: Michelle Trachtenburg | OPEN

Iris is the most spiteful girl at the academy. If she doesn’t like you, she will make your life a living hell. She’s fake and feels superior to everyone. The only “friends” she has are people just like her. Revenge is right up her alley; she’ll help you get it for the right price. She doesn’t tolerate stupidity and she’ll do anything to get what she wants.

Iris was “Daddy’s little girl” when she was still living with her parents. She fought with her mom constantly and lied her way into her father’s heart. To him she was innocent and naive, but as soon as she was out of his sight, she returned to being Satan’s Prodigy. She feels like she deserves the universe and becomes frustrated when she doesn’t receive it. Some students go out of their way to avoid her, but others aren’t afraid to break her face. They’re simply waiting for her to pick a fight with them.

Simon Blake | Human | 18 | Senior | FC: Jay McGuiness | OPEN

Simon is an amazing actor. How else do you think it was so easy for him to sneak into such a high-security school? All he had to do was tell the administrators that he was a Wendigo. He had heard stories from his father before, so he had a basic understanding of the behavior and mannerisms, but up until now they were all just folk tales. It’s not like the administrators were going to make him prove it, anyway. He is extremely talented and deceptive; Making anyone believe anything is the simplest task. It’s not an issue, but it is definitely a habit—a skill, if you would. He has loads of friends who think they’re the only ones that Simon can’t trick, but they’re very wrong. None of them have any idea what he truly is. However, like everything, it will all come out in the end. 

Simon suffers from chronic depression, also known as Dysthymia. It eats away at his mind and it is rare that he ever feels good about himself.  Of course, since he is such a great actor, he is able to hide this from everyone else. The only time he lets his distress show through is when he’s alone. He cannot have the others notice his weakness, his pain—at least, not if he wanted to continue to claim to be a Wendigo. Although, sometimes he wishes that someone, anyone would notice the pain that he’s in. It’s a natural ache, or that’s what he tells himself, but he truly feels like it would be his downfall. Every time he fakes a smile or a laugh, he’s silently pleading for help, but no one notices—as they shouldn’t—and he’s left alone.
