Sekai Hero Academy, one of the first hero academies to emerge out of Japan once quirks became a natural phenomenon. Since the entrance of U.A's golden age of popularity after producing top notch heroes such as All Might and Endeavor, Sekai Hero Academy has slowly dropped in the ranks to the #7 spot. Despite not being as popular as a school such as U.A, Sekai still stays relevent in the topic of best hero schools with its production of heroes instilled with traditional values of what it truly means to be a hero at its deepest roots.
RIIING!!! RIIING!!! RIING!!!, BAM!!!!
A hand came slamming down visciously silencing the electrical time keeping device, with the amount of time he has done that throughout the year you would think his alarm clock would have broken by now. The boy rose from his bed, eyes still closed as he looked forward at what was his dresser before letting out an lenghty yawn. One after another he opened his eyes, starting with the left before rising out of bed reaching into his red Pajama shirt and scratching the back of his shoulders.
Today was the day, the entrance exam for Sekai academy in which he had been anticipating for many years to come. Oddly enough the blonde was not nervous at all for this day as he had been preparing for the past 3 years. I guess that is what happens when you approach a task with a chip on your shoulder.
Damian made his way towards his dresser and picked up a frame picture of him and his older brother that was sitting on top of the piece of furniture. At first his face was a little distressed as he stared at the photo but it soon turned into a bright and wide grin. The boy had already packed for the exam the previous night before, snacks, water, exam papers, as well as a change of clothes. He wanted to be well prepared for this exam, when it comes to Sekai Academy the exam is never the same everytime, from year to year it changes signficantly in criteria as well as location. This year it would be taking place in Shinto Village on the country side.
Shortly after falling into deep thought, Damian washed up in the bathroom as well as ate breakfast before grabbing his bag and keychain before heading out the front door. The time was about 6:45, he had about 20 minutes to kill so why not pay him a visit? It was still a bit dark outside as he walked through the dimmly lit streets though it didn't bother him much, he has made this trek so countless times in the past 3 years at all hours of the day. As he walked he came across an iron fence with a small section of it cut open, big enough for the boy to fit inside. Damian slipped right through without hitch, a smile slowly becoming plastered across his face, for once he was in a good mood for his visit and at last he arrived at his destination.
A favored hero forever in our hearts, Tyson Miyamoto, 'Pharoah'

Damian took a seat infront of the gravestone with his legs curled up, "Today is the day that I take over where you left off, I think its funny because most of the people I went to intermediate school with asked me why attend Sekai? Why not go to somwhere like U.A or even Komei Academy but it was much deeper than that. The teachings that you instilled in me, the way you you were apart of this community, was something like a role model...an inspiration to us all...
The boy grew quiet as he sat in front of the grave, it felt as though he was in his own bubble as the early morning mist created a shrowd around him making everything but the grave clouded.
”I want to learn from the same school that you attended and walk in your footsteps.”
Damian got back up onto his feet as he prepares to say his goodbyes but was soon interupted by a familiar voice.
”Damian? Are you around here?” a bright phone flashlight could be seen dancing around in the fog, as the voice came closer , the flash got brighter.
”Yeah I am right here Biron”
Soon enough the flash became unbearably bright as it was shone right in Damian’s face before it was turned off.
”I figured you’d be here, we should start heading to the train station. The earlier we get to Shinto the better.”
Damian let out smile in agreement, it was time to go accomplish his goals. He was thankful to have Biron by his side while doing so, at first it was unsure whether or not Biron would even attend a hero academy. As dependable as he is, his major lack of confidence holds himself back from his true potential.
The train station looked like something out of a movie, the dim lighting mixed in with the morning fog gave place such a mysterious vibe. It seemed as though Biron wasn’t having it just by the look on his face.
Soon enough the train to Shinto village had pulled. The two boys boarded the train taking a seat near one of the exits.
”I’m going to take a short nap, wake me up when we reach our stop.” and just like that Damian was off to sleep.
The boy could feel a slight nudge, ”Damian wake up, we’re here.” Damian woke up, a bit discombobulated, as he looked outside the window of the train all he could see were lush green hills. A smile soon appeared on his face as he took in the change in environment.
After disembarking from the train, a dirt trail played the role of their guide as they made their way to their destination. Damian had decided to check his phone for time, it was about 7:38, as he looked up in the top left corner of his phone he could see he only had one bar of cellular connection.
”Stick close by Biron, the reception here isn’t too good. It’s best we don’t get lost.” Once the two made it into the village it was easy to tell apart the examinees from the village inhabitants. The examinees all were young with fresh clothes while the villagers were equipped with worn clothes.
”Lets ask for directions Damian, I don’t want to get lost”
Damian looked at Biron and shook his head,”Nonsense! All we have to do is follow the other students, we’ll be fine!”
Damian began to scout around for someone who seemed as though they knew exactly what they were doing. Soon enough his eyes lit up and Damian took off in a fast speed walk right behind them with Biron following anxiously.
What could possibly go wrong?
