✦ ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO...
The dreadful Armageddon ravaged the population of both Heaven and Hell, leading to a vicious stalemate on both sides. The bloodshed became senseless – even by a demon's standards – and after years of a fruitless war, both sides came to an agreement: for the first time in eons, angels and demons agreed to enter a time of peace. Despite this treaty, the wounds of war were still fresh and prejudices were not easily forgotten. Small skirmishes would break out between individuals of different species, and tensions in joint public places were high and constant. Perhaps old rivalries would not heal as easily as hoped...and so, the Almighty Council turned their gaze to the next generation...
And thus, the formation of Middleground Academy was underway.
✦ WELCOME, STUDENTS!
You have been given the distinct pleasure of attending Middleground Academy, the first academic institution that welcomes both angels and demons. We are proud to have offered ninety-nine years of advanced education to our diverse student body, and look forward to celebrating our one-hundredth anniversary with you at the start of the school year! We understand the complex emotions that must come along with enrolling at such an unusual school, but please rest assured that our staff will do all that they can to contribute to a positive learning environment and cater to your individual needs. That being said, we do encourage friendly rivalries between student houses, and host several tournaments each year so that our student body may test their mettle and make their names known!
Students will be appointed their own dormitory that is theirs to decorate within reason. The location of said dorm will depend on which student house they select, which will be explained in further detail later. Middleground offers an exciting array of electives and clubs, which are yours to choose in addition to mandatory core classes. We encourage community and socialization, so that our future will know no enemies or segregation. Remember, you are our tomorrow: ensure that your decisions today count!
