Midori Forest

Residents

Midori Forest is the home to many faerie folk, particularly pixies. Although some faerie folk do live in homes on the ground, many choose to live in tree houses.

Greenery

It's no coincidence that the word "Midori" means green. The Midori Forest is full of beautiful and rare plant life, as well as a wealth of various types of trees. Natural caves and clearings are also scattered throughout the forest. The many pixies that live in the forest also have pale green skin.

Schools

Located in the Northern Midori Forest is the esteemed Yousei Academy and Yousei University complex, where many young faerie folk study academics, athletics, and magick.

Shopping

A number of stores, malls, and quaint shops are located within the Midori Forest. Bookstores, such as Kinzaki Books, are often popular, especially with students of the Yousei Academy and Yousei University.

Elven Championships

The Yousei Academy is also home to the ever-popular Elven Championships. It is mandatory that all students of the Yousei Academy and Yousei University participate. The championships feature a variety of areas in which to compete, segregated by levels determined by age. Competitors may also compete at levels higher than those determined by their age if they exhibit adequate skill.

Winners of each competition receive medals of gold, silver, or bronze for placing first, second, or third (respectively). When all competitions are completed, those who have accumulated the greatest number of gold medals are awarded the honorary titles of King and Queen. Other winners with the highest medal counts, of their studying year, are awarded the title of Prince or Princess.

The reigning Queen of the Elven Championships is Kasha, a year five student at the Academy, who competes at University level. Upon entering the competition, at the equivalent of year one, some time ago; she is since undefeated, excelling particularly in a variety of magick skills and spells.
