Hive short for HIgher Institute of villianous education is the school, founded by Dr Maxamillian Nero, to train children for six years. It is based on a volcanic island in a secret location which only a select number of people know. It is run by an artificial intelligence known as Hivemind. The school students are split into four streams in accordance to what they will learn and what they are likely to become in the future. The school used to be on mainland europe but it was moved to the island for greater security. Because there is a volcano in the island, it is completely powered by geothermal energy.
