The Academy is where you grew up, trained, and prepared. It has been your home and school. It is run by Asht Devon, who has been your leader and trainer since your early childhood. The Academy is completely isolated from the general population; the majority of people of Brightvale know almost nothing of what goes on there.
Unfortunately, because of the sensitive nature of your mission, the Academy has also, in some ways, served as your prison; you were rarely permitted outside, and even then, never without supervision. Several potent alarm systems ensured that any time anyone attempted to sneak out, they were caught within moments; sneaking out was never punished severely, but it was obvious that it was strongly discouraged.
