Davastis Academy of Arcane Sciences
Typically just called “Davastis” or “the Academy.”
To establish a sensible chain-of-command, ancient law in Forcas once held that the most powerful house had the right to lead all wizards when the city-state went to war. Many years ago, this position was held by House Davastis, and after a time heads of the house saw fit to devote much of their resources to preparing mages for battle and the house became a private military academy of sorts. Eventually a long period of peace erupted, and House Davastis slowly lost its influence and faded away.
The last head of house was Fenro Davastis, who had spent most of his life as an instructor. It was found out upon his death that he had willed the remains of the house’s holdings to the city of Forcas, to be turned into a magic academy free of house influence. The Academy has lost its military focus and now teaches a variety of subjects, but they still offer a strong battle mage program which retains hints of its military academy heritage.
