Your everyday Highschool Teacher, ignored by the nerds who know everything he says, ignored by the ones who need to learn but don't give a damn about what he says. Gerard Thompson is a teacher with little love for his students, an alcoholic, and a Star Trek fan, although he doesn't mind dabbling in the Dark Arts every once in a while, get himself a little revenge on the world. He stills lives in his parents' house, has a crappy job and hasn't had a girlfriend since the age of 7, so what can he lose? Anyway, it's not like he doesn't have help-He confiscated one of that idiotic Saryna Cade's books from her locker, and it looked cool. So who can blame him for getting tempted...?
