Peripheral People Countdown – Ylendrian A-Z – P

P is for…

PsyAc – A common shorthand for the Imperial Psionics Academy, the training ground for imperial citizens with any form of psychic Talent. Since most Actives are triggered by the onset of puberty, the largest portion of the training facility is a boarding school for Active teenagers.  PsyAc has come under fire in recent years for separating children from their families, leading to the establishment of several smaller campuses in systems outside the imperial core.  PsyAc also educates older students who’ve chosen a career- usually in the medical or law-enforcement fields.  Students working towards Field Agent status with the IEC are assigned a partner, known as a Ground, who is usually a psychic null.  P
