The Promethean scholars are a group, consisting of Rowan's strongest and most talented mystics. Before the Second Siege, the Chair of the Promethean Scholars was an Indian woman called Amulya Jain. However, during the Siege, the Scholars were struck by lightning, and a new group of Promethean Scholars had to be formed. To include a faculty member of the school, Annika Kraken was asked to join the Promethean Scholars. However, she declined, making Hazel Boon the next, logical option.
