Day of Impact
The so-called “Day of Impact” occurred four years ago at the AAT. On this infamous day, a group of former students who had graduated from the AAT – all powerful and talented individuals – attacked the school in pursuit of some mysterious agenda. There was significant damage to the campus and about two dozen casualties were reported – 10 of which were Rank 1 and 2 talents and 4 of which were faculty. According to reports, none of the attackers were seriously injured by the efforts of the students and faculty to protect the campus.
The group was being led by Edain Morthus and included some very promising and disturbingly strong Talents – Davan Caine (the estranged son of Dr. Caine), Salazar Mapes (a brilliant student who once held the record for the most successful duels at the school), and others.
Of the groups purpose in attacking the school, little is known. They seemed to be after something or perhaps seeking retribution for some perceived crime. Whatever the case, the day lives in infamy amongst the student body and security across the campus has been stepped up significantly since then. The current Student Council is made up of a strong core of individuals who were all present at the Day of Impact event – some of whom were rumored to have clashed with the aggressors on that day. Some say that it is the secret agenda of the Student Council President to one day avenge the deaths of comrades who died on that day and that many of the policies supported by the President and Council are aimed toward making the student body ready in the event of another attack.
