The Destiny Military Academy is one of the seven prestigious magic schools in Destiny City and the school where most Imoutoverse characters attends. It has a student population that numbers in the thousands, with approximately 90% of its population related directly to the school. High ranking students are usually from important or rich families like the Dairenjis, Togamis and, Amicus, and some are recruited via special recommendations, and rarely on occasion, some are scouted for being talented. Entrance exams entail rigorous tests on physical, mental and, magical prowess, as well as Magic aptitude. Students who are accepted either leave home and live in the academy's dormitories or rent a room at local apartments. Destiny Military Academy, while a military organization, it also functions as its own separate school, with unique curricula and structure. Part of the Academy's purpose is to teach and supervise young Jewels and Witches to prevent the uprising of another Witch War.
Destiny Military Academy was founded in Destiny City following the end of the Second Witch War. Along with the other five prestigious academies in the Imoutoverse, Destiny Military Academy was founded in order to train Jewels and talented humans alike to slay mystical beasts and various other careers.
In addition to its role of training future warriors, the Academy also plays an important role in Destiny City's security. The current headmistress, Lady Mallory, along with various members of the Grand Magic Council, Wizard Saints Organization, and staff members of other schools, are part of a secretive group which actively works to protect the Destiny City from threats.
Destiny Military Academy is also the leading expert in "unconventional" Jewel theories, as one of the teachers wrote a thesis about animals being able to develop Jewel abilities since it requires a level of intelligence equal to that of a two-year-old human child and most animals have a level equal to that of a two-year-old, as well as queer research, such as the research facility created for the investigation of the Random Imaginary Numbers set, which is connected with the mysterious Jewel named Vyrde by the students.
Despite being a notable school, it also has a few connections to the dark side of Destiny City, with a branch located within or close to the school that conducts dubious research on reserve course students and criminally insane students. They have apparently researched the S-Rank Jewel only known as "Black Thorn" before, though, they too deemed her too much to handle.
Destiny Military Academy is a residential/boarding-type school, with its students residing in dormitories on the campus (first year students are required to stay in dormitories as part of their joining the school), but in some cases students can live in an apartment complex or at home if they are within a 3 mile walking distance of the academy. Each student receives a "monthly allowance" of 2,000 Destin, however, this does not include the weekly 3,500 Destiny from being apart of the International Jewel Registry. If for some reason, they spend all of it, they will not be able to get any more money until the next month. Because of the large amount of students that end up penniless, many shops in Destiny City cater for students wanting to work part-time to earn money. The school also provides almost all living facilities, including hygiene, food, and laundry. However, students are not restricted to the campus outside lessons, and frequently spend their weekends in other mini-cities that make up Destiny City.
Destiny City has various part-time job shifts available for students, especially those who have spent all their monthly allowances from the DMA. Jobs offered to the DMA students are paid by the day due to the high job demand of penniless students seeking employment. Students seeking part-time work must submit an employment form to the DMA.
Jobs include: Waitress at Golden Phoenix Café, delivery at Destiny Shipping, cleaning the city's community pool and bath, and working at other positions at various sports arenas, various restaurants, and drugstores. Students can also take up various missions posted on either the school bulletin board or the digital bulletin board.
In order to be accepted into Destiny Military Academy, students typically have to take the Jewel Classing Exam, in order to prepare for the Academy's own rigorous entrance/placement exam. Some candidates, like Bianca Argento and Nayuta Mitsuari, may be invited to the school after showing exceptional skill out side of Missions and organizations such as: CIMO and Public Morals and Security Enforcement Committee. However, having to pass the Jewel Classing Exam does not seem to be a prerequisite, as some entrants are talented enough to pass the Academy's exam without transcripts or actual training (such as Ritsu Dairenji). Students are generally admitted at around age 14, although Miria Honda was one exception, being admitted at age 11. However, it seems that the those even in middle school in grade are eligible to join the DMA. Prior to joining the academy, however, students must sign an Academy agreement that specifies that students must follow it's rules.
Upon joining the DMA, the student starts in the standard student curriculum seemingly goes to a class in which they go and pick a roommate, though it's noted that the student isn't rushed. In addition, the student, if they have difficulty picking a roommate, they can visit various social events that are held such as a "Feeling Partner" game to further assist them in finding a partner.
In the lead-up to the Grand Destiny Star Games, DMA also participates in an exchange program with the academies of the world such as Royal Magic Academy (United Kingdom), Trinity Academy (United States of America), and Kizuna Girls’ Academy (Japan). Exchange students may participate in some activities, such as sparring matches, and attend events such as the Destiny Bikini Battle Royal.
The school biannually holds a Uta-garuta tournament and winner gets a Modified Magi-Com Device and a 300,000 Destin Scholarship.
Per being a school, there's various rules to the school:
- If two students are dueling on school grounds, at least one of the faculty members must be present to witness.
- Forcing another student to give you their Milk is forbidden.
- Killing other students is forbidden.
- Bullying other students is forbidden.
NOTE: DMA also has rules on par with regular non-magical school rules.
According to Lady Mallory, the DMA's Headmistress, those who join the DMA sign an academy agreement and if violated, they're expelled. Exceptions aren't made, as she also expresses that doing so with one individual would undermine the entire stability of the school. There's several ways to result of expulsion in the Academy:
- Breaking any of the rules expressed in the Academy agreement.
- Failure of all class subjects.
Both the Headmistress of the DMA and experienced teachers of the Academy are also capable of expelling students either on certain criteria on a special assignment such as a remedial lesson or even on the spot by automatically failing them in all classes.
The DMA is a academy in which has no set uniform. However, there are a variety of preset uniforms one can choose from, and one can match any top with any bottom. While a student within the academy can select the uniforms and switch around match to their liking, they're also allowed to wear their own clothes.
Students have additional uniforms specific to certain tasks, whether related to schooling, such as for physical education classes, dojo training, and extracurricular work at the Reception, or related to military missions, such as the Hunter uniforms.
The female students are measured for weight, height and other measurements by the school’s nurse. The female students may then be upset about the lack of “development” in certain areas, or shocked about a perceived weight gain.
Part of the Physical Exam is the Magical Ability Test is a regular city-wide testing event in Destiny City to determine the power levels of the Jewels with it, which is apparently supposed to be done at least once a school year. Although, the test can be done as well during special occasions.
Each test is different depending on the Jewel's powers, such as teleporters trying to teleport large gold weight multiple times in a row.
Managed by Lynn Amicus, this expansive room, at least four floors tall, has escalators connecting the opposite sides of each floor to store numerous shelves housing numerous books. The Library includes desks for study, with white mana crystal lamps to read by light.
The Library follows a rule which restricts some students to only be able to look at a limited number of books in the Library. The books are divided into four categories: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4.
Although focusing on books related to studies of magic, courses lessons for Jewels and Witches, and the history of dangerous magic and technology, the library is like almost any other one with its inclusion of a broad range of readings. Items at the library include comic books, manga, audio-books and books on music.
Lynn Amicus works from behind a central desk, with additional books held in shelves below the desk.
The area where sick or injured students are treated. While physicians such as Meade Goldberg work here, Reiko Liladan is known to assist as well, especially with operations such as responding to Nayuta Mitsuari's crushed heart and fatal injuries at the hands of the mind controlled duo of, Ryūichi Tegami and Chisa Dairenji.
The dispensary is a typical hospital room with several beds, an examining room, and a doctor's office. The dispensary includes a medicine storage room, although its messiness outrages Death the Kid, who has at least once struggled to organize the room.The hospital ward is decorated with health posters.
The Academy have wide balconies for students to access.
The grounds in front of the entrance are used as a makeshift battleground for training fights between students. During these battles, a member of staff must be present to view the fight. The area near the DMA also seems to be a lake area, where some students like Bianca and her team use it as a training ground.
The Illusive Hanging Gardens of Destiny City
The Illusive Hanging Gardens of Destiny City includes lush green gardens with many trees to surround the Academy, making this location a perfect place for various students to train individually or in teams.
DMA has various types of classes ranging from general academic classes to the study magic, but there is the curriculum for both non-combatants and combatants; ninety percent of the students in the DMA make up and follow the combatant curriculum, whilst, the last 10% of the student body make up and follow the non-combatant curriculum.
Outside of School
In addition, the DMA is a rather special school in that students may actually give themselves code names whenever they take missions. Once a student has given themselves a code name, they are stuck with the same name for a minimum of two years.
Information Management Room
A confidential room only allowed to staff, members of the Wizard Saints, and members of the Grand Magic Council, this is where all the highly confidential information is stored, such as files on past incidents regarding beings such as Witches and Celestial Beasts.
Hidden under the Academy, this locked room is headquarters for Kyosuke Togami and other members of the Intelligence Agency to research all topics pertaining to Witches, Celestial beings, and their history. This room contains numerous pieces of information about witches and celestial beings, including cases suspected or confirmed to have witches or celestial beings involved. As this room is a secret not known to many students at the Academy, it is also known to outside parties as only the Research Room.
