"I'm Professor Ochoa and I will be teaching Mythology this year. While much of the material we cover may not hold any truth or religious value to you, it may to others and I ask that you all remain respectful of that fact."

"Mythology's the study of those stories. -Ology means the study of. Myths are tales of what might have happened, usually involving religion or creation stories,"

Maisie seemed more invested in trying to remember some of the Greek and Roman myths she knew. They taught those in the Muggle world, so she was gratified that this was a class she might actually understand.

Xavier was trying to an open mind. He didn't hate myths - he enjoyed reading them in fact. But he'd rather read the stories on his own than spend a class discussing with the others. Yet, all myths and rumours're based on some facts - often those that're important to certain discoveries yet hidden. Maybe it'd be useful, who knows? He supplemented, 'Greek myths, for instance, are tales centering the Greek gods, the Olympians.'

Nina sat in the back of the classroom with her textbook opened to a random, miscellaneous page. Her attention, much like her book was askew and somewhere far away from the lesson. The little werewolf was busy watching a bird just outside the window, her curious olive eyes following the flutter of wings.

"Right, for the most part. Mythology refers to both the sudy of myths and the collective myths belonging to a certain group." She ducks under her desk and comes back up with a map which she clips to the board. "Greece. Rome," she points to each country. "Their respective mythologies are extremely similar--does anyone know why?"
"I...looked over the book this summer. A lot of them seem to have to do with magical creatures."

"Decent start." She flicks her wand and a map of china affizes itself to the board. "If anyone didn't know, this is modern China. Now if you'll find in your books the list of gods and immortals, we'll start there. Who wants to tell us about Tian?"

He raises his hand. "Indiginious people," he says excitedly. Mythology will always be his favorite class, and the fact that now they're talking about something close to home, it makes him even happier.

"They used to be called 'Eskimos', but I think they prefer 'Inuit'," she hummed, "it refers to indigenous people who live in the Canadian arctic, Greenland, and other such regions,"

"Clever, Ariana. Five to Gryffindor. The Inuit live up here," she motions on her map to the places Brielle listed, "like Brielle said. Can anyone who's looked at the book tell me what separates Inuit religion from a lot of others?"

Ruiko raises a bucket of seal jerky (that she's been hiding under her desk) instead of her hand. "Their spirits can take a joke," she says, before getting a handful of the contents and throwing it at someone on the other side of the room.
He was just being a good student as always, listening itently and making himself as little a presence as possible, leaving all his classmates to answer while he takes down notes more diligently than a fansite owner for their ultimate bias. What Blake doesn't expect, however, is the sudden cold feeling of... meat(?) on his face. Is this normal here?
What is this? Interesting class thus far, he appreciates the cultural aspect and learning. It even saddens him that he never got to visit Greenland. But...jerky? What was this throwing thing? In most games that involve throwing, there also happens to be a throw back. So it is only logical to assume, the person is expecting a throw back as well. He's lucky to sit by Blake, who doesn't seem to get the rule of the game. What a fun class the proffesor has planned. Paul grabs some of the jerky on the floor. "Here you go!" He throws it back to the pitcher.

It's a fookin mess. It is also his cue to do some things he never expected himself to do, but he is no chicken, and he needs money. I'm sorry mythology. He shakily pulls out what he's been hiding- a super soaker. He hates Ruiko for this. "You know, with all that ice, maybe their religion talked about climate change and the importance of water?" Not as smooth as Ruiko, but it would have to do. "And maybe with cooling off." F-cc my life. He starts shooting out water from his super soaker all around him.
First jerky, now super soakers? The Western world is a strange, strange place and he'd like a ticket back to China please. Blake waved his wand, uttering an incantation to make the stray water heading towards him stop and gather into a small sphere. He held the spell, sighing in relief as he didn't get soaked.

With a sigh, she touches her wand to her neck to amplify her voice. "Cut it out!" She waits a moment for everyone to stop. "Ruiko, Paul, Mateo--see me after class for detention. Also, ten points from Ravenclaw and Slytherin and that supersoaker stay with me until I feel like you've earned it back. Blake, fifteen points for you for not being an idiot, and if you want to send the water back to Mateo I'll pretend you didn't. Would anyone else like to start shit or are we good?"
Blake hummed, taking out a water bottle from his robes and depositing the collected water in it. "At least they didn't do something like summon a live walrus or something." Remembering that he was slapped in the face by raw seal jerky, Blake took out a handkerchief and proceeded to clean his face.

"We won't be going into any particular mythology in depth in class this year. At the end of the year, I expect an essay by each of you on a particular mythology or religion. I will outline the expectations another day. By now you should know that most myths come about to explain how or why things are the way they are, but can anyone guess why people created myths? Why did they need to explain things or represent things or create an afterlife or whatever else they did it for?"
