The Academy is a neutral Tarot Academy where adults between eighteen and twenty-six years old can follow an educational program for three to five years. Despite, or perhaps because, its insistence to stay politically neutral, it remains extremely popular to nobility. This is helped by its quality level being far above all competition. Many of its students are nobility or royalty, selected by their countries to be sent to the Academy. Asides from slots offered to various countries, the Academy also has exams that can be taken to qualify as student. This mostly attracts the middle class. Finally, the Academy sends out Recruiters to find talented individuals. Some of those are Tarot Criminals that have been Marked for their crimes, others are simply skilled individuals that nobility hasn't managed to snatch up.
