@Draven_Eldercraft, this one concerns you and your story. I would have put it in a Role Play, but I have not seen an opportunity. Alright,here it is.
There are three kinds of students at the Academy Automicus. The Purebreds are the children of autofficers and are left at the school to learn the cruel trade while their parents are on Imperial business. There are the Willing, the kind that choose Imperial service as a career, they usually come later in life. Lastly, there are the Recruits; children who are abducted from their homes and more or less brainwashed into obedience.
If you read my memoirs, you will know that I was one of the Purebreds, the daughter of autofficers. K's particular nemesis, Renia Sharpgaze, was one of the Willing. She came to the Academy after becoming disenchanted with a career in modeling. Draven's nemesis, I forget his name at the moment, was a Recruit. Draven himself was also a recruit.
Just wondering, @Siege_Throttlequill, you mentioned in your story that you were once an autofficer. Which one were you, Purebred, Willing, or Recruit?
There is one more kind of Academy student, the kind that nobody likes to talk about. These are the students who don't graduate for questioning what they have been taught. They are referred to as Clerical Errors. Draven and I fit into this category, him for his escape and I for my trip to the asylum.
