Introducing some the major characters for the first game:
Ellen is one of your roommates in Horse Hall. A sweet girl, slightly shy, and as new to magic as you are.
Virginia, your other roommate. Exuberant, athletic, and born into a magical family.
Donald, one of Virginia's two brothers (Donald is the middle child, Virginia is the youngest). He's a troublemaker in Wolf Hall.
... And this is Damien, a senior in Falcon Hall, and he's trouble of a different sort...
Plotwise, the election has finally been held in-text, moving on to the next week! Also, I'm starting to put together a Magical Diary webpage but it's pretty much placeholder at the moment.
