The School of the Fox is a Witcher school founded by several members of the School of the Wolf and the School of the Cat in the year 1010.

Contents

Origins 

The School of the Fox, arose after a determined group of Witchers of the School of the Wolf led by Velcal, who refused to accept the expulsion of several 'failed' Witchers, considering that they should give them a second opportunity.

A similar situation happened at the Cat School. Which, by coincidence of fate, led them to meet this particular group of Witchers from the other school and found a new school, based on those ideals of "second chances".

History

Founding of the School (1010)

So, because of that vision that was opposed to the ideals of the Witchers of the time, their founders had to depart far, far south.

Until they arrived in Vicovaro, where they were needed, due to a series of plagues of monsters, which came from the east. Specifically, ten.

With which, their founders and the failed Witchers, they were able to end up, thus demonstrating that their ideals were not entirely wrong, and so it was, after that act of help, that the government of Vicovaro, granted them the ancient elf fortress of Burov Mylne, which was restored and in that place, they founded a new school, the School of the Fox.

Witcher Tournament

In spite of everything that happened and the discrimination that they suffered by the rest of the schools. Including the cat, the foxes were invited to the tournament and attended. Surviving when the event became violent, but also, staying in a very good position, with the third-place only behind the Wolves and the Griffins.

Conflict with the Usurper (1250s)

By the 1250s, just like vipers. The Usurper bid the Fox School to join his army, but they refused. But in return for denying his offer, they offered to The Usurper that they serve as spies or assassins for a possible eastward expansion which The Usurper accepted.

The Witchers of the School of the Fox kept their word and thus managed to keep their school, even in times of Emhyr Var Emreis.

Current situation

Actually, some Witchers from this school, continue to do spy and assassin work for the empire, but most have returned to their previous status, although with the ban that all the Witchers in Nilfgaard suffered in some places, long ago.

Second Witcher Tournament (1290)

Grandmaster Lambert of the School of the Lynx organized a second Witchers' tournament to show the other schools that the infamous Cats no longer existed and that a new era had begun for them. A new era, in which they weren't the psychopaths of yesteryear. The School of the Fox received an invitation and being one of the surviving schools broken off from the Cat sought to prove their improvement as well. The tournament was held in the ruins of Kaer Morhen, where members of all the then extant schools attended, with the exception of the Witchers of the School of the Rat.  

The tournament was won by the remaining School of the Owl Witchers.

14th Century [Adalwulf's leadership]

In the 14th century the former wolf Witcher Adalwulf of Aedirn was appointed as the Grandmaster of the School, after he brought new resources such as three new mages and their research to the school, as well as gathered research from other schools.

Adalwulf proposes a training initiative with the other Witcher schools (1301)

Wanting to strengthen the bond between the Schools, Adalwulf started the Witcher Training Initiative sends Witchers to the School of the Bear and Griffin respectively asking for the exchange of mentors to strengthen the Schools' curriculum and produce stronger Witchers for the future. The messenger was received fairly well at the Eagle School of Kaer Seren, the Witcheress Birrexi of Poviss, as well as the Witchers Kemro of Cintra and Zivor of Redania were sent in positive response to the training initiative. However the messenger that went to the Bear School of Haern Caduch was not as warmly received, only through the backing of the Bear Witchers Razan of Cintra, and his subordinates Sustor of Redania and Jag Laittatrson did the message receive backing by the school who only sent the Master Witcher Cormac for the training initiative, though Razan, Sustor and Jag would make the trip to Burov Mylne at times to help as well. Cormac would decide to integrate officially into the school later that year.

Adalwulf sends a research team to Kaer Nytk (1302)

Hearing of an abandoned Witcher keep in Gemmera, Grandmaster Adalwulf and a few other Foxes, made their way to the abandoned Kaer Nytk. Not expecting to find much, they were surprised to find that the library for the School had been sealed, they broke the seal and took the surviving documents back down to Vicovaro and the safety of Burov Mylne, where Jalast saw to there restoration and preservation for future generations. One of the documents listed the mutagenic formula for the School's Trial of the Grasses and their unique mutagen that produced Witchers that were faster than others. Adalwulf did his best to locate any survivors of the school, whether he found any is unknown at this time.

Adalwulf creates the Witcher Reformation Act at Burov Mylne (1305)

After thinking over the different school that had become basically extinct and the Witchers left without home or companions, in honor of the School's founder Velcal's original goal, Fox School Grandmaster Adalwulf of Aedirn created and enacted the Witcher Reformation Act. He sent Witchers out into the far lands beyond Vicovaro, Nilfgaard even the Continent to bring their foreign brothers into solidarity. He also bartered with the Nilfgaardian Empire to have them collect any Witcher 'criminals' and give them the option of willing reformation into the school. This led to Witchers from many different schools which had failed in the past being integrated into the School of the Fox.

  • School of the Panther: With help from the Witchers of the School of the Lion, surviving Witchers from the extinct School of the Panther were offered a second chance through the reformation process offered by the School of the Fox, some integrated into the School of the Fox and some were allowed to rejoin the School of the Lion.
  • Two Witchers from the School of the Rhino: Berhanu and Zanock responded to the missive leaving behind the lands of the Far South for the Continent proper to mentor and train under Elite rank Elven Witcher Neicrubriel, who would refine their Witcherly arts and help them learn how to speak Common and Elder Speech.
  • Two Witchers from the School of the Crales: Ancall and Biastra responded to the missive leaving behind the lands of the Maecht to mentor and train under Elite rank Witcher Uarkan, who would refine their Witcherly arts and teach them the comradery of the School of the Fox.

Eishe of Vicovaro bartered to get the school a budget from the Vicovaro Ducal Court as well as getting them awarded commissions from them based off their work in the area and the entirety of the Nilfgaardian Empire. Adalwulf and his school found it quite profitable to break criminal hanses and sell their belongings to the Armorer's Guild. Adalwulf would store up this money for a year before making his next move.

Adalwulf along with Master Witchers Cormac and Kemro of Cintra travelled to the Bear School keep of Caern Haduch in the Amell Mountains and the Griffin School keep of Kaer Seren in the lands of Kovir and Poviss to have the respective Grandmasters of the School of the Bear and the Griffin to sign the document themselves as well as to help the schools barter with their affiliated lands for the same deal of amnesty for Witcher crimes in return for reformation. Due to the nomadic nature of the School of the Lynx it would take two years beyond the creation of the document to track down Grandmaster Lambert of the School of the Lynx to gain his support and signature.

Razan of Cintra visits Burov Mylne (1305)

The Bear School Witcher, Razan of Cintra along with his adepts Sustor and Jag make the journey south to visit the home of the School of the Fox, the fortress of Burov Mylne at the behest of his best friend Adalwulf of Aedirn as a guest instructor, teaching the trainers and trainees in some of the Bear School techniques and equipment as part of an inter-school exchange program. He swaps stories with his old friend and regales the youngsters and other Witchers with tales of his time down the Path.

Adalwulf of Aedirn makes moves to financially and legally secure Witchers' rights in the future. (1306)

Grandmaster Adalwulf of Aedirn invests a great deal of coin earned the following year through their budget and commissions in the dwarven banks of Giancardi, Cianfanelli, and Vivaldi creating special protected accounts for Witchers of all schools as soon as a Witcher graduated (That were subject to the Witcher Reformation Act) that cannot be confiscated by officials for any reason, (Adalwulf heard of Geralt of Rivia's trouble in Kerack and did not want the same thing to happen ever again to a Witcher.) as well as putting law firms on retainer for Witchers of all schools across the Continent (and later on the other landmasses) in the event of legal troubles. Money was also invested in other profitable pursuits, through a business man in Novigrad (who turned out to be a friend of Adalwulf's younger foster brother Geralt of Rivia) who after a bit of time getting to know the Witcher gave his true name as Tellico Lunngrevink Letorte, these businesses wielded good profits both local and across the sea, Adalwulf arranged for a small portion of dividends to be paid to the School of the Fox, while the rest of the profit was given to the businessman to improve and maintain the businesses, Adalwulf would regularly send witchers and sometimes himself to check on the businessman to make sure he was thriving and not being harassed.

Contact with the School of the Lion (1307)

In 1307, Fox School Grandmaster Adalwulf of Aedirn received word from one of his travelling Witchers who had boarded a ship bound for the southern continent where Ofir could be found, his attempt at finding accepting schools in Ofir was an failure as a previous Malliq named Nibras had come to hate Witchers for the accidental slaughtering of his son, the crown prince Sirvat. Later the Witcher made his way to the neighboring land of Zangvebar and found a Witcher school located in the keep of Iyasu Facil who called themselves the School of the Lion the Witchers there warmly received their travelling Witcher brother. After receiving the Witcher's report Adalwulf arranged for a magical communication network between the two schools, Adalwulf and his council entered into talks with the School's Grandmaster about their school and lands of the Far South, furthering the knowledge and comradery of both Schools.

Haak Invasion of the Northern Kingdoms (1350)

A few Witchers from this school (included Adalwulf of Aedirn) who had been knighted in various lands in the Northern Realms joined the Northern Front against the invasion. Adalwulf of Aedirn made it clear to the military commanders that a knighted Witcher's knightly duty ended with the individual, and let his knighted Witchers participate only under the condition that the rest of the school be given the choice to join in matters of war or defense against invasion. After fighting off the invasion, Adalwulf and the knighted Witchers journeyed back to Burov Mylne in Vicovaro where their brothers and sisters celebrated with them their victories and as is Witcher custom swapped drink and stories.

Eishe has a vision of the future (1353)

School Resident Mage and Head Researcher Eishe of Vicovaro through a vision conveyed through symbols and metaphors foresees the Second Conjunction of the Spheres will happen in five years. Adalwulf of Aedirn shares this news with the other Witcher Schools as well as trying to tell the rulers of men, some take the vision seriously, others laugh him off.

Signs

The Foxes use all the signs known to the rest of the witchers, but they also brought about a resurgence of the Aagni sign, a rarely used combination of the Aard and Igni signs into one sign. When witcher notes were brought down in the 14th century the school started incorporating the new signs created by the Griffin School into their curriculum.

Bombs

Like all witchers, they use bombs to kill certain monsters, further developments in bomb technology were brought to them from Zerrikainian alchemists, so they got ahold of bombs never used by witchers before, improving their monster hunting capabilities.

Potions

Import of knowledge from the alchemist of Zerrikania as well as recipes from Kovir and Povis, afforded the witchers of the school of the Fox, the ability to go to areas not travel-able by their predecessors allowing them to handle new climates and conditions with potions such as Arlliwiau, Derw, and Twymder.

Crossbow

Taking the Feline witchers crossbow design and combining it with research and diagrams found in the School of the Hawks' abandoned keep of Kaer Nytk, the Foxs' developed the Foxs' Sniping Crossbow which combined projectile weaponry with sign usage to maximize its distance and power by channeling an Aard, Igni or Aagni blast through the crossbow along with the bolt to control the distance and slinging it further than before.

Armor

Combining elements of both predecessor schools' gear, a new medium weight armor was created; it featured splinted metal on the gauntlets and greaves to give Witchers the ability to parry blades with their shins and forearms, and the knuckles of the gauntlet were lined with padding and had a spiked metal plate over the knuckles allowing for stronger punches. The armor kept the spaulders and gorget of the wolf armor, with the cuirass part from the Cat armor worn under the jacket from the Wolf's segmented jacket. While wearing Vulpine gear was not required many Fox Witchers chose to get their rank's gear commissioned by the school's smiths as they were better than most armor and clothing of a non-magical nature they'd encounter while wandering the world.

Combat Style

Combining the strong strikes of the Wolves' Temerian Devil with the light cuts of the Cats' Addan Aenye. A reactive, situational sword style called the Foxes' Crevan A'baeth Glaeddyv was created. Later when Witchers from other, extinct school were added to the ranks of the Foxes their techniques and knowledge were added to the School's own, leading to some exotic specialized techniques being included in the Foxes' swordplay repertoire.

Unique Mutations

Initially Witchers of the School of the Fox were treated by a mutagen that worked as a midway point between the Wolf and Cat mutagens allowing for a emotional range as well as resistance to magical charms while also giving the Witchers an all-around ability boost. While reform subjects were treated to a voluntary genetic treatment intended for Witchers to even out any 'failings' found in their treatment, such as emotional range and disposition.

Eventually following the programs introduced by Adalwulf of Aedirn, new Witchers of the School of the Fox were treated to a special mutagenic mix which was the result of adding mutagens from other schools such as the School of the Hawk, School of the Rhino, etc, Monster Mutagens as well as Adalwulf's own Witcherized Source blood. This mutagen had the capability of bringing out a singular unique ability in a Witcher treated by it which differed based on the Witcher because each Witcher trainee was personally handled on an individual basis. Few Witchers created this way became Sources or more magically-inclined but it had the effect of stabilizing the additional mutagens into a stable complimenting mixture. Older Witchers also had the option of being retreated using the Moreau Method, a Witcher improvement method originally discovered by Tomas Moreau as a byproduct of his research to cure his Witcher son, the Griffin School Witcher Jerome Moreau. The method failed as a cure only strengthening the mutations of the Witcher in Jerome and was abandoned by Tomas, and later was rediscovered and used by Geralt of Rivia in 1275. The process and research made its way into the hands of the School of the Fox who shared the data with the School of the Griffin for the sake of fostering and protecting the knowledge for the sake of the future of the Witchers.

School's Witcher Process

Because the Success rate at the School of the Fox was higher than other Schools, their apprentice numbers were lower, allowing for more hands on teaching with the Apprentices.

Apprentices were given a schedule to keep so their trainers and instructors could manage their time better.

Year One

In their first year, before the completion of the Choice and the Trial of the Grasses an Apprentice's day would be comprised of their meals and two training periods:

Apprentice Year One Schedule
Breakfast- 7:30 to 8am Apprentices would gather in the Dining Area and be fed their morning meal then go with their trainers for their first period.
First Period- 8am to 12:15 pm Physical training with Master Witcher Caldigi, Master Witcher Kemro of Cintra, Master Witcher Cormac, as well as their aides the human former mercenary and bounty hunters Cozlim, and Farna. Apprentices would mostly run the Fox's Trail building up their stamina and learning proper breathing techniques.

The Choice

About six months into their training the Apprentices would be subjected to The Choice, this trial which consisted of the voluntary decision to follow a special diet consisting of mushrooms, mosses and herbs and more grueling physical training. In the past many did not survive this step, ending up succumbing to liver or heart failure and sometimes madness, while many were left with excessively aggressive tendencies. However following the implementation of the methods brought about by research done by School mages Eishe of Vicovaro, Arrah of Verden and Marvos of Verden, this trial is much more stable than it was in the past, with far fewer negative side-effects. If a Apprentice for any reason denied the Choice their memories were erased and they would join the Servant Staff, a boring but much more safe path.

The Trial of the Grasses & The Trial of the Dreams

At the end of their first year, the Trial of the Grasses as well as the Trial of the Dreams are performed to determine who passes into Year Two. The Apprentices would be served specially made herbal teas and then they were required to intravenously absorb special virus cultures. mutagenic elixirs plus the alchemical ingredients known as "the Grasses" to modify the physiology of the subject. This trial took about a week to complete thus it required a dedicated staff who took shifts stabilizing and monitoring the affect Apprentice. In the past most given the Trial would die by the third day. But the survivors, would be agitated by strikes of sudden madness, before falling into a deep stupor, the latter became the norm as the chances of survival raised dramatically due to continued research on Alchemy and magic. The symptoms of a successful conversion process would be an Apprentice's eyes would turn glassy, their hands reaching for any nearby clothing, and their breathing would get loud and hoarse. They would then be administered the elixirs again, which would turn the Apprentice's cough into vomiting. It was normal for the Apprentice to suffer from seizures, with cold sweat running down their skin. This was necessary to weakened the Apprentice's body so their immune system did not fight off with the mutagens, herbs, and viruses penetrating their bodies. About at the sixth day mark, the Trial of the Dreams would be implemented under the care of mages and druids who monitored the meanings of psychedelic visions induced into the Apprentice. By time the Apprentice would wake by the seventh day, the Trial of the Dreams was over and their eyes would have already turned cat-like.

The Trial of the Medallion (WIP)

Apprentices would be given the Trial of the Medallion in groups of three, they would be brought to the edge of a special training area outside of Burov Mylne, specifically to a Leyline Convergence Point to charge their medallions with its special properties. The Apprentices were told where the Point was and were charged with performing the ritual and making it back safely from the monster infested lands. Upon their arrival back at the Keep they would be officially counted among the ranks of the School.

School Ranking System

Grandmaster Witcher: The School Grandmaster, was the leading member of the individual Witcher schools, as they emerged from the chivalric tradition of the early Order of Witchers. The School Grandmaster oversaw the life in the keep, but didn't flinch from the duty of slaying monsters on the Path either. It was Grandmaster who decided what objective the guild would follow, apart from killing monsters.

Master Witchers: The second highest position within a Witcher School, during times of great import to the school they would gather up as a council with the Grandmaster to plan the School's future. To be considered a true Master Witcher, long tenure in the trade or hunts of powerful monsters (Higher Vampires, True Dragons, etc) were necessary, in other words reliability and experience. In the event of an attack on their keep Masters would serve as overall commanders giving orders and leading their fellow Witchers.

Elite Witchers: If Master's served as Commanders then the Elites served as their captains, Elites and above would handle the education of the next generation of Witchers in one way or another, The School of the Fox usually would assign two Adepts or lower ranks to an Elite Witcher to mentor them and to form defense squads in the event of an attack on the castle. See Master Witcher entry for promotion requirements.

Adept Witchers: During the winter months and combat situations would serve as Lieutenants, they would follow the orders of their assigned Elite and protect non-witcher staff from harm in the event of an attack. Adept Witcher gain promotion to Elite status when their Elite mentors believes they are ready and issues a promotion request to the School Council.

Witchers: A fully graduated Witcher usually lasts at this rank ten to twenty years before they are considered for a promotion to an Adept. This rank use to have the highest death rate as it is before experience is acquired leading to deaths from ill preparation, over-confidence and lack of information during investigations. With the implementation of the Mentor program, at the School of the Fox, graduate death numbers lowered by 85%. In the event of an emergency such as an attack, Adepts or above would issue orders to base level Witchers.

Apprentices: Not fully realized Witchers either in their first (Training) through fifth stage (Final ceremony) of their development. Upon completing their school's final ceremony, experiment or test they would be considered actual Witchers. Apprentices received the most hands on care. An Apprenticeship would consist of ten years of training and molding. Starting off with physical training, whose oversight was spread between: Master Witcher Caldigi, Master Witcher Kemro of Cintra, Master Witcher Cormac, as well as the human former mercenary and bounty hunters Cozlim, and Farna. Apprentices would be taught Witcher sword-fighting styles by Alexandre Nengenval [Temerian Devil.], Drarkesior Aep Llwuch [Addan Aenye.], and Griffin School Master Witcher Birrexi of Poviss [Viroledan Naev'de Feaine Glaeddyv], before being taught the Fox's own Crevan A'baeth Glaeddyv to round out their sword-fighting repertoire.

Apprentices were taught the art of using a bow and a crossbow by Phernirr, Didwa, and Draifa.

Lessons in Monster Lore were taught by Master Witcher Jalast while the Gnomish Alchemist twins Parrilt Neuwald, and Koild Neuwald taught the apprentices the various alchemical procedures that would come with being a Witcher.

Ginger, shoulder-length hair awkwardly hangs over a frowning face. Bright amber eyes, set elegantly within their sockets, watch gratefully over their brother and sister Witchers they've rarely felt at home at for so long.

There's something curious about him, perhaps it's his sense of comradery or perhaps it's simply his sense of humor. But nonetheless, people tend to take pride in knowing him as a friend, while treating him to a good meal when he's around.
