    Miss Alchemy readied herself quietly, using the Alchemy Wand to get EXTRA clean. She prepares to be a "good" student, getting everything ready before classes start. She will be the BEST student.

    Legion stumbled back into consciousness, blinking groggily at the alarm slowly pinging away from his phone. He fumbled it off with a few muttered grunts, and crawled his way out of bed. First order of business; shower and a shave.

    Legion's a fast showerer; he's back in his room and sitting in his chair inside of ten minutes. Once there, one of them goes to work shaving the other; sharpening sideburns and neatening up the neckline with clippers before swapping the clippers and repeating the whole process. They did take a moment to muse on the new addition to the room - interesting, definitely, and full of potential. Nationalistic supers were useful, if misguided. What did nation states mean any more, after all, except allegiance to whichever bankers were currently yanking on the purse strings.

    Finally, he grabbed some jeans and his body armor. No point not wearing the stuff - you could barely see it under a t-shirt anyhow.

    Trickster

    You could swear you see Kireena grit her teeth as she moves through her technique like some terribly beautiful dance. "I was not gifted with great power," she nearly whispers, though still audible over the hum of her sword cutting through the air, "When my father chose me as the heir to his Imperium, it was because I had prepared for it since birth. Because I took it for myself." She spins around, Karen feeling the rush of air as the sword moved past her. Kireena hardly seems to blink.

    Freeweight

    "I'm not your dad," a thin reedy voice says on the other end, "The hell are yo-.....Oh! Right!" He clears his throat, "Yeah, this is Pa-eurrrr.....Bernard! This is Bernard! Simian told me to contact you about picking up "school supplies"." Freeweight can practically hear the air quotes around 'school supplies'. "I got a brief window today. I need you at the pick-up location exactly at 1:15. At 1:20, I'll be gone. Ya got it?"

    Freeweight nods, and tries to place the voice, wondering if it was familiar. "Sure thing dad, just text me the location or whatever. I'll be there."

    Freeweight

    Once you hang up with your "Dad", you notice Emmet has sat up. There is a split second where you think the golem has figured you out, but that changes when he waves at you, turning around the slate on his neck to reveal the words Good Morning!

    Trickster

    Kireena stops her practicing, sheathing her sword expertly before turning to face Trickster, "I won't break your spine, you have my word." She offers a hand to help Trickster up to help her properly stretch.


    All of You, A little later

    It is now 8:00, and you all find yourselves in the floor's common room. Your roommates have either already left for class or were in the bathrooms getting ready for the day. The only exception is Miss Alchemy's roommate: Jonni is still sound asleep. Nevertheless, the room appears to be safe for discussing 'private matters.'

    "Oh, I have something interesting." Legion says, while another him flips idly through a textbook. "We have ourselves a mind-controller here; and he's an arrogant bastard if I've ever met one. He'll get himself into trouble, just you wait. And when he does, we can extend a helping hand and make him ours. Even better if we can nudge him into trouble along the way."

    "But a life without risk is boring!" Karen jumps to her feet, "I say we try to use him - and at the same time, keep some blackmail on him... shouldn't be too hard!" She turns to the Legion, "Who's our dude? I could check him out, at least?"

    Freeweight lounges in one of the chairs, his leg draped over the overstuffed arm.

    "Mind control? That's a no go for me. I like my head to stay just the way it is. I vote we are him." he says. "I got a call from Bernard. I need to make a pickup today at 1:15. Can you all cover for me?"

    Atomic thinks for a second. "Maybe the best option is to hold off on doing either until we get a better feel for how this mind controller thinks and operates. If it seems like we can use him, we'll go from there. But getting him expelled isn't something we can undo."

    The Legion waves their hands dismissively, the one still not looking up from his textbook. "Blah blah risk, blah blah expulsion. This whole ordeal is a risk; if anything this makes the rest of our lives safer: he's a convenient scapegoat if we're caught. And, yeah, Karen, he goes by 'Cass' - short for 'Casanova' -" and here Legion can't help but roll his eyes, "but no. They're right to be freaked, you all have actual powers - he already has one heavy hitter under his thumb, he doesn't need another. It's probably safest if you all limit contact. Cass tries messing with one of me, all he gets is one of me - alone, we're only human."

    "Well, unless you're feeling lucky. Actually, Speedy Gonzalez in there - her name's Jonnie - seems to be at least copacetic with him. You could try talking to her. And, hey, maybe talk me up a little? She's kinda cute."

    "Oh, no worries Freeweight, what's your schedule look like? I can spare a fork to take notes."

    "I've got algebra then, which is gonna suck. I need a decent out though." Freeweight looks at Miss Alchemy. "Say Chemistry Queen, how'd you like to make me throw up so I can get out of class?"

    "There is another issue," Kireena speaks up, looking over at Freeweight, "You know how to get out of class, but what about getting aroud security?" She points out the window where even now the grounds are flooded with kids walking, running, flying and skating on ice bridges to their first classes. "I didn't spot too many, but the faculty is still watching the grounds with cameras. If we don't avoid them, it might draw unnecessary attention to us."


    Suddenly, there is a PING sound as Leapfrog suddenly appears in the lounge, wearing a pair of shorts and a purple tshirt. "Crap, I forgot my textbook," He says as he starts heading to his room, but stops to look at everyone gathered, "You guys....are going to class, right?"

    "It's the first day of class, dude," He says, PINGing into his room and pinging back with a textbook, "And I can't be in two places at once. And I don't wanna get in trouble in case Old Man Summers is watching. He's picking new members of Next-Gen this semester, you know!" And with that, Leapfrog vanishes again.

    You arrive at the main building of Claremont Academy with time to spare. From the inside, Claremont Academy looks more like a mansion than it does a school. The walls are partially paneled with cherrywood and the floors are maple panels. Needless to say, it was pretty fancy.

    Upon arriving, you all realized that by some twist of fate (or the machinations of your sponsors) that you all have the same schedule. The class is listed with the teacher next to it:

    Spoiler: Class Schedule
    Show
    Calculus- Darien Skyler
    English- Jesse Perry
    History- Lemar Phillips
    Superhero History and Ethics- Leroy Hawke
    Lunch
    Gym- Alan Archer
    Art- Alexis Milo
    Physics- Clarence Macleod


    You arrive in a simple classroom, a series of desks facing a large white board. It was surprisingly sparse in terms of decoration, no educational posters or motivational messages. You don't see your Calculus teacher, but you recognize a few of the students.

    - Charlene was sitting at her desk, wearing a zip-up hoodie over her strange hazmat suit and burying her face in a book. It looked like she was deliberately trying to avoid eye contact, and her desk seemed like an island among the ocean of other seats.

    - Jonni (Miss Alchemy's roommate) had a desk in a back corner, fully dressed and lounging back in her chair. Her black boots kicked up on the desk, she smirked and nodded at Miss Alchemy as she walked in, blowing a bubble with her pink gum. Jonni had been asleep in her bed when you left.

    -Near the front was Sebastien Shields (Cassanova), laughing with Eddie Fell (Chump) and a third student none of you had seen before: A black haired Japanese girl dressed in black and purple. You can't tell what they are talking about.

    You have about two minutes before the Start Bell goes off.

    John takes a seat in the front row. Being a model student seemed like a good opener, and easy to stop if it turned out to be pointless.

    Two of the Legion walk into the room, shoulder to shoulder. One sits in the front row, notebook open and pen at the ready, the other wanders into the back row and collapses into the desk next to Jonni. "Howdy." he drawls in what no-one in their right mind would confuse for a real Texas accent. It's clear that this one could not care less about class.

    As for where the third one is, well - that's always the question, isn't it?

    Trickster enters the class and heads to... last seat by the window, why not? Not like she expects to do particularly good in calculus, so what's the point in trying? Multiple choice questions in the test she can usually lucky guess, as for the rest... eh, it'll work out one way or another.

    Looking at her, one could thing Karen had changed for PE already, but shorts and a short top were pretty much her everyday choice of outfit (when out of costume, anyway) - Karen knew years of gymnastics gave her a body worth gazing at, at didn't really mind... if anything, that made it easier to get her way.

    Jake waltzed into class just before the bell rang and grabbed whatever seat was left open. He had an image to maintain (or so he thought) after his stunt on the first day. It wouldn't do to look like he actually cared about school. He looked around the room for potential victims, someone smart looking and unassuming that he could rely on to "help" with his homework. It was always better to make friends than enemies, at least until the time came to betray them.
