As the students arrived at the door to Professor Firelight's cottage, a small sign pointed them around back. When they reached there, Professor Firelight was in the middle of a small obstacle course, which used all the elements as obstacles. She was riding Moonwind, who, upon seeing the students, stopped and took her over to them. As the teacher slid off the back of the horse, her dragon familiar, Florian, alighted on her shoulder and looked out at the students, an inquisitive expression on his snout.
"Welcome to Fellowship with Magical Creatures," said Professor Firelight. "You already know me, I am your teacher, Professor Firelight. This is my familiar, Florian, and my friend and companion, Moonwind." She gestured to the dragon and horse, the latter nodding his head in greeting.
"Today we shall have an introduction of sorts. Throughout history, Muggles and Magic-folk alike have known of the existance of creatures that are magical in nature. Modern muggles seem to have decided that there are few or no magical animals in existance. They don't believe in the dragon, the unicorn, or any number of others.
Now, as you know there are four basic elements, earth, air, fire, and water. Magical creatures tend to dwell in one of these particular elements. For example, the phoenix deals in fire, the hippocampus in water. The unicorn is generally a beast of the earth, but sometimes of the water as well, for with its horn, it can purify the element. The air belongs to flying beasts, so sometimes animals belong to other elements as well. The dragon, for example, is of the air as well as the fire.
We shall cover the elements and one of the more powerful animals that belongs to each. If you ever have anything to add to questions to ask, feel free to do so."
It was at this point that Moonwind chose to speak, in a voice that echoed in the minds of all present. I am Moonwind, as you know. At times, I shall be assisting your teacher, for I have picked up strange things in my wanderings. I am a horse, but also am also able to do some small magics. I too shall be available for questions, and can usually be found in the small "stable" beside the cottage.
"Now, any questions, comments, etc?" asked Professor Firelight.
