There have always been nightmares on our streets. Dreams, illusions, superstitions and fantasies have always plagued our kind. They are in our bedtime stories, they are in the corner of our visions. They are depicted in tales of old as mythical creatures, some of which good, and some bad.
But, are they truly fantasy? Can the things that have haunted us since our very beginning really just be cut down and cleared up to mere superstition? Why have they been so prevalent in our cultures then? Why are the Great Pyramids of Egypt carved with sphinxes and spirits; why do our old wives tales speak of goblins that devour children in their sleep; why did people once hang garlic and crosses around their doors to ward off evil?
The answer is simple: Because the nightmares of our bedtime stories are not as make-believe as we'd like them to be. There are things out there that are not us; and, as much as they'd like to eat you up or crush you underfoot, they have to receive a proper education on it first.
Here, at Chimera Academy, we educate the future generations. All of them, scaled, furry or clawed. We are the reason there have always been nightmares to haunt the darkness, and we are the reason most of you think you're alone in the world. Because, every wolf needs a little sheep's clothing. We can't just let our phoenix students burn buildings down because they feel like it. We can't just let our dragon students eat whoever they like. They need training, in the ways of their race, and in the ways of conformity.
That way, nightmares stay nightmares, and not the top story on channel ten.
