Strixhaven is a school of magic on the plane of Arcavios.[1][2][3]

Description[edit | edit source]

The school is the most elite university in the Multiverse. It features five Colleges, which battle it out with their own takes on magic.[4] Each college is named after an elder dragon who founded it. The Five Colleges are:

  • Lorehold ({R}{W}) - Passionate scholars and explorers who dedicate their studies to adventure and discovery. Their motto is "Leave no stone unturned."
  • Prismari ({U}{R}) - Mages who focus on the artistic side, using the elements to express themselves and their emotions. Their motto is "Express yourself with the elements."
  • Quandrix ({G}{U}) - They are mathematician wizards, seeing math and magic as one and the same. Their motto is "Math is magic."
  • Silverquill ({W}{B}) - They specialize in verbal magic, ranging from empowering poetry to biting arcane insults. Their motto is "Sharp style. Sharper wit."
  • Witherbloom ({B}{G}) - They are nature mages, on both sides of the spectrum, either empowering nature or exploiting it. Their motto is "Get your hands dirty."
