Professor Kalif Styx

Patriarch of the Zhefarovich Family, Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor, Slytherin Head of House, Former Death Eater, Legilimens, Occlumens

Professor Styx entered the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom and he made sure that everything was dimmer than it should be. He preferred the rooms darker, because he was used to being outside all the time when he taught Herbology in the past. Once all the seventh years entered, they were seated and he leaned against the desk. He held his hand up for silence and they were quiet. Professor Styx was waiting for the doors to shut, and once they had, "You all will be learning about Lethifolds and Dementors. Get out your parchment, ink and quills so that you can all take notes on this lesson as it is a valuable lesson. This will be on your NEWTs." Professor Styx waited for the seventh years to do exactly that. They were older and smarter, so they should all know better than to miss out on this lesson.

Once they were all listening to the former Death Eater, Professor Styx continued with the lesson, "A Lethifold appears similar to a Dementor, and is repelled the same way, however it is a highly dangerous magical creature whom is also carnivorous. They are known as the 'living shroud'. The black cloak the lethifold gets thicker after digesting a human. Does anyone know how it would attack a human?" Hands went into the air and Professor Styx nodded at a student in the front row. They answered the question correctly. Smirking a little, he was going on about some of the most feared creatures ever to glide this earth. Now he had to go on to another creature that was extremely similar to the Lethifold, which was the Dementor.

"Now, we are going to go over the Dementors, and they do not feed on humans. Well, do not feed on their bodies, however they do feed happiness and they can consume souls. They do have another similarity is that they both are repelled by the Patronus Charm. You should be learning that charm soon in Charms with your Charms professor." Professor Styx would have said the professor's name but he did not stay in contact with the other professors as much seeing as he was not a social person at all. Professor Styx glanced at the clock and realized that it was almost time to leave. Professor Styx concluded, "So, times up, and for homework, I would like an essay on both the Lethifolds and the Dementors before the next class. You may leave."

Assignment: Roleplay the lesson and do the homework assigned.

struggling artiste | class of 2046, former head boy

[justify]With the second week upon them, Theo was busy with just about everything. There hadn’t been that steep a gradient of difficulty but he had a lot of things now on his plate, between the quidditch and being head boy, there was little time for anything else. The boy had enjoyed doing the quidditch try-outs and he couldn’t be more glad that his co-captain Isabelle was as good in that position as she was. Able to provide support and a second opinion because he knew his was likely to be wrong. He wanted to be sure he was right, he wanted to be sure that he got it. The boy had finalised the team with her, posted about it and was now just prepping by holding as many practices as they could. They needed to get good, they needed to jell well as a team, they needed to win more than they had ever before. However, on top of everything else, Tholomyes had classes and his NEWT classes were no walk in the park. He finished off the homework he’d been doing and made sure to place it along with everything else into his bag so that he could go to class.

Tholomyes walked into the defence against the dark classroom and looked towards the professor as he took his seat. The thought of what they would be covering in this lesson was fairly exciting to the head boy. That and the prospect of wandless magic was even more intriguing. As he glanced about, he noted that the room seemed dimmer than usual, or perhaps that was just his eyesight. He took out his notes and books when instructed and began to write down what the man was lecturing, first about the Lethifold, which seemed like really horrible things. He didn't raise his hand to answer the question but listened closely as someone else did. It was not a good thing, that was for sure, he hoped he would never run into any of those things ever. The professor moved on to the next creature which Theo didn't realise he would dislike more but he did. To have all the happiness out of him. he was glad he'd be learning the counter charm to it, that would be helpful. With that the lesson appeared to be over, and Theo packed up his things and left the class.

Compulsive liar | class of 2046 | professional rockstar

[justify]Rome was unhappy about having to still be at school, but as the term got underway, she did have to time to actually adjust to it. She was able to get herself into the mode of school for the second to last time she’d have to do it. At the very least she had a few fewer classes and those they were more difficult, she knew she would enjoy them more. Finally doing complicated and good magic like she wanted to. If she wanted to get good at duelling she needed to be learning the best and most difficult spells. The teen was getting herself ready for the day, she had taken to using the duelling area of the school to be able to practice spell casting, to practice doing magic and getting better and quicker with non-verbal magic. The teen however had noted that she would be late for class if she didn’t start preparing, and though Rome didn’t entirely mind being late she knew that she needed to try to be as close to on time as she could manage. The girl put what she needed into her school bag, grabbed her wand and lazily walked to class.

Rome arrived at the defence against the dark arts class, less than enthused about what they would end up learning during this class. She took out her notes and began getting herself ready to write down whatever this man was going to tell them, since if it was about to come up on the NEWT, she did want to know it. She didn't just want to not have it. The teen wrote down what the man was saying about the creature, feeling like maybe this man was a lethifold in disguse. However, it was just a particularly hungry creature, not that bad. The dementor which they then moved on to, that was what Professor Styx was. he sucked the life out of everyone around him. She was always surprised when Lanithro was somehow related to him and he was so different. She wrote down what the man told them about this creature, and was not all that hopeful of being able to do the patronus charm, she didn't think she would ever be able to manage such a spell. Happy memories were what it took, did she have any? The girl packed up her things, pleased she wouldn't have to think about dementors again until the end of the second semester. Rome left the room, hopefully this year would start picking up and be less awful soon.

former slytherin | class of 2046 | holyhead harpies chaser | dan ♡

Charlotte entered the Defence Against The Dark Arts classroom ready to learn. She wanted to do well in her NEWTs and so the first thing she had to do was work diligently. The girl had her quill at the ready and as the lesson started she began scribbling away, listening as the professor spoke to the class about Lethifolds. She didn't particularly like the idea of them as somehow they managed to seem much more scarier than a dementor. The girl hoped she would never have to come across one as she wrote notes. When a question was asked, Charlotte hand went straight in the air and smiled as she was acknowledged. "They would attack at night when the victim is sleeping and suffocate them before digesting them." she said confidently, having remembered what the textbook told her. She beamed as she managed to get it right and made a new section in her notes about the dementors. It was horrible that dementors fed on people's happiness and she hoped this would never happen to her or anyone she knew. When the lesson ended, Charlotte exited the classroom happy with the amount of notes that she took.

ravenclaw alumni • big brother

[justify]Ari enter the dungeon room, taking his usual seat. He was happy to have back somewhat control of his destiny, and knew if he wanted to continue these lessons were just as important as ever. Ari reached for his bag and pulled out his writing materials. So no wandless magic today, good. It gave more time to prepared himself a lot more. Professor Styx directed his lesson on Lethifold and Dementors. Both, he was sure to have or will have read up in CoMC. It was a matter of time. The lessons sometimes went hand in hand with other subjects. Ari penned notes, as much as he took in.

His attention broke away from his parchment as the mention of charm. So they would be learning to defend themselves of these creatures? It regrettably slipped his mind about his Patronus. With so much concentrating on getting through these lessons and all, he was tackling more than he could handle. So Patronus Charm would be the one to cast these creatures back to the depths in which they came from? Lovely, he thought. As he remembers talk of Patronus Charm in his previous school, he use to wonder what shape it will take once he had learn the spell? Ari penned more notes, making a list of possible animal form. A tiger. Ari could picture no other form but a tiger. It must be it. Ari finished up his notes and left once the lesson were concluded.

Defence against the dark arts was easily the most important lesson for James and even after hearing the news that his father had died he knew that he needed to keep his head down and focus in such an important class. Putting his father to the back of his mind James made his way into the classroom and took his seat. He was disappointed to learn they would not be performing wandless magic instead they would be learning about Dememtors and Lethifold. While James was sure it would still be interesting, he had been looking forward to taking his mind off things with a difficult task such as performing wandless magic.

James listened to Professor Styx as he lectured them on the two dark creatures and did his best to take detailed notes as he did. He suspected if they were taking time out of their wandless magic practice time then they were learning something that would appear on the exam. When the lesson was over James sat back in his chair while he folded up his role of parchment and slipped it into his bag. He waited for Professor Styx to dismiss them and when he did he quickly left the classroom.
