The Russian Academy of Magic is a colossal onion-domed structure drifting aimlessly across the surface of Lake Baikal brought to existence using centuries of levitation charms perfected by a group of Russian witches experimenting with portable floating ice rinks. Self-heating fur scarves are all the rage amongst students and professors alike, although they have been known to overheat from time to time, leading to mild cases of heat stroke.

"I wasn’t very proud of who I was. Not that I was a bad person—I just didn’t wake up with a sense of purpose and being useful, and I didn’t know what I was fighting for and believing. Certainly when I discovered these things about the world, I found that I really deeply connected to these issues [about refugees], and sure that I would be focusing on these issues forever, until the day I die. I dream about seeing things change for the better—now. I used to dream things more for myself, and now I dream for others. And it’s a better way to dream." [x]
