Regarding comments on this page and the previous one (and many others), I'm so thankful for you guys always making theories and judgements about the characters, it helps me a TON to know, "Oh good I AM being clear enough with what I'm trying to convey!"

That's not to say you guys are always right, but if even one of you is close to the truth, that means I'm making stuff not too subtle and yet not too obvious. Thanks guys.

Spectacle is giving us some very interesting information. We now know that Amical started teaching at the same time he bought the mansion, and that he keeps strong ties to former students. I speculate that the 'school' has the support of the mage orders as it adds to all of them, and Amical does it because it gains him a network of contacts. With students going all over the place, and all of the former students we have seen having a positive opinion of him, Amical has allies absolutely everywhere a mage can go.

I'm starting to wonder whether there is a reason why Amical shot the people that did not awaken as mages at that tournament. If he's such a nice guy he wouldn't have done so without one. That, or Spectacle is just not telling us the whole truth (like everyone else in this mansion).

@Ethrenal Actually, he could have been teaching longer than he's had this place. Or not as long. Spectacle simply said that he's met other seedlings here, and that he's been with Amical at least as long as Amical has owned this place.

@shylarah: That is a good point, I was reading a bit too much into Spectacle's words. If we suppose that the mansion is a demense as I theorized, then it seems likely that it was built to teach in. I would guess that no more than one or two classes of seedlings went by before the mansion.

There's definitely something wrong here. Not only does his description of Amical not fit what we've seen, he acts like he owns the place— OR the owner. That arrogant smirk, that calm, knowing demeanor, that three-piece suit . . . . all call to mind Old Scratch. Just what devil's bargain did Amical take to "help you out," MISTUH Spectacle?

@sythiar: I'm pretty sure Amical shoots those who didn't awaken because they were still normal humans and weren't allowed to know about magic. Plus, he couldn't just let them go, or they could have found a way to sue him. At least, that's what I think.

I know everyone has all this insightful commentary, but I'd just like to point out Tyler says he thinks Spectacle has 'meet other Seedlings'. May want to fix that...
