The event known as the Magenta Incident, as dubbed such by the administration of the Margate Social Learning Center, is shrouded in mystery for now. Supposedly it was a particularily destructive prank. Though not considered criminal in nature, it happened the school year before the start of Volume 1 . This led to the instillation of "safety weapons" in order to better contain the whims of Mace and his partner Whip. The details of the incident will likely be revealed in a later prelude arc as it progresses to catch up with the events of the first volume Awakenings.
