This girl was pretty, but eccentric. He liked that a little, but part of it made him uncomfortable. He fayed a smile.
"I see...well not really..."
He didn't know much about himself. Brenen had always told him that he'd raised him from a child, but Brenen and Calvin looked nothing alike. He said it was his mother Winerva's look, but Calvin doubted it, as Brenen had always refused to let him see painting of her.

Lakota awoke at first light and made her way out to the practice field for her warm ups. Today was going to be a good day. The new recruits were coming in and would begin their training today. She had been at the school for over a year now and looked forward to the new faces and smells of all those eager to join the academy and test their mettle. This place had given her a family and a home. She may look serious and intimidating to all the new recruits but what they didn't know was their presence made her heart leap for joy. It just rarely made its way to her face.
After her morning workout she made her way to the mess hall for a quick breakfast. She was expected at the front gate for registration. Lakota was one of the few students selected to take the groups of new recruits on a tour of the facilities and then to their barracks.
She had a den mother approach to all those that arrived here and the masters of the academy appreciated her willingness to welcome the young ones without compromising the need to discipline when necessary. It did not bother her that many feared her, for that was a in its own way a sign of respect and in many cases developed into loyalty.
After wolfing down the few bites that her breakfast consisted of she trotted over to the front gate and greeted the registrar. "Beautiful day isn't? Looks like we have a bunch of lively ones today." Lakota said as she looked down the hill at the milling crowd. Many where already making their way up the hill. She could smell the sea of excitement and anticipation, laced with fear of the unknown future that sat before them atop the hill
