Felicity entered the classroom, her black pumps clicking along the stone floor as she headed up to the front of the room where her desk resided. She dropped the heavy books she had been carrying right down and pulled her wand from the inside pocket of her bright green blazer. With a quick swish, words began to form on the board in the corner of the classroom.

Welcome to Basic Arithmancy.

Professor Felicity Quinn

Today's Objectives:

-Introductions
-Arithmancy 101
-Syllabus


Once the board was filled out Felicity flipped back around and frowned at the arrangement of the desks. "Well this just won't do." With a grin, she raised her wand once more and the desks rearranged themselves in a large circle. The perfect way to have a class discussion. Felicity taught older student's and she found in her class at least they were able to sit as such and be able to handle the laid back temptation.

Along the side walls, under the sills of the windows stood half bookcases filled with Arithmancy, Ancient Runes, and Divination textbooks. She never knew when a student would need an extra reference. Along the top of the cases, sat tools for class.

Along the stone walls, now painted white to brighten the room, hung charts similar to Periodic Tables. The charts show letters and numbers in many different languages.

Now satisfied with her room, Felicity sat leaned against the front of her desk, one leg crossed in front of the other and her causing tension on the black pencil skirt she wore, her wand hanging over her arm. Her blonde hair was pulled back into a tight bun and she always decided to wear her thick black glasses on the first day of class. Most of her student's expected her to be a nerd teaching a scientific Divination class and she liked to burst their bubbles.

She looked up at the clock, her student's would be arriving soon. As the thought her it, the door opened and a student walked in.

"Come in, take a seat anywhere you like. We'll begin momentarily."

Sara walked in with her purple hair tied back in a ponytail and took a seat in the back of the classroom. She saw the plan that the professor wrote on the board and at least she would know what the lesson was going to be about and how the lesson was going to proceed. She felt awkward being the only student in the classroom so far and she secretly hoped that more students would show up so that she wouldn't be the only one. She did see the upside to being the first person to arrive to class which was she got to choose which seat she wanted.

Chancelor walked in with the swagger of one who knew how to throw his weight around and the smirk that belied an intelligence he only let those close to him see. His manner quickly changed seeing only one other student in the room. He always had more fun when there was someone to intimidate. He looked casually at the board and then at the circle of desks. Apparently she thinks we're all equals.

The teen shrugged and sat a seat away from the girl that was already there. He had been assigned this class and hadn't gotten the books he had ordered yet so he simply twirled his wand between his fingers of one hand as he tied his long hair up with a leather thong with bits of stone and bone woven into it.

((OOC: CLASS HAS BEGUN. IF YOU ENTER AFTER THIS POST PRETEND YOU HAVE BEEN HERE THE WHOLE TIME. IF YOU ROLEPLAY YOUR CHARACTER ENTERING AFTER THE FACT YOU WILL LOOSE POINTS. Remember there is no Tagging in class!))

It had been about five minutes and it was now time to start class. With a quick flick of her wand, the red from the wood gleaming under the light, the large white double doors shut closed. With the doors closed, she would know if a student tried to enter after class had already begun. An easy way to deduct points.

She uncrossed her legs and gently put her wand down on her desk. "What is Arithmancy?" She began slowly and she circled the student's her heels clicking against the black stone floor. "Arithmancy is a method of Divination using numbers. Some would argue that it isn't magic at all. Who can tell me what we use Arithmancy for? If you don't know take a guess." Felicity stopped and looked at the students over her black rimmed glasses.

Well, the Ancient Mayans used what could be a form of Arithmancy to predict celestial occurrences. It wasn't magic, more just very precise calculation. Chancelor looked up shocked. He had just voluntarily answered a question. It wasn't what the professor had asked, as he had no idea what branch of magic this really was. His elders said he would need to be able to see. So he was placed in classes that would assist him in doing so. The part that shocked him was that he was more known to be a slacker. People weren't supposed to know he had intellect behind his brute savagery. It made people underestimate him.

Felicity turned around when she heard the Wampus that had entered almost late, comment. Her green eyes widened and she smiled.

"Mr. Ailil, whereas that wasn't exactly the answer I was looking for, I am impressed. 5 points for Wampus." Felicity couldn't help it, she had been in Wampus when she was at Ilvermorny. "And you are correct Arithmancy is a very precise and more scientific form of Divination." She paused to make sure the student's were taking notes. She shouldn't have to tell them, they were old enough now where the should no better.

"Everyone should be writing this down, and my 5th years, you most importantly. This will be on your O.W.L.S at the end of the year." Once she knew they were writing she continued.

"Arithmancy is used to predict trends in the future. Whereas this isn't all that we use it for this is just a basic definition. To piggy back on Mr. Anili's comment, the Ancient Greeks were also known to use Arithmancy to predict the outcomes of their battles. You may ask how? They would give values to letters in the names of their opponents. Similar to our value chart that we use today." Professor Quinn motioned to the chart in the front of the room.

"This will be our biggest tool this year. By the end of the year you should have it memorized. Now, our most Basic form of Arithmancy is used with the names of people we want to know more about. So go ahead and quickly pair up into groups of 2."
