The Atmosphere of the Polar Academy

How would you describe the atmosphere in the Telos Polar Academy in TSL?

The music is very nice, probably the most interesting aside from the academy itself. To me I get the feeling of mystery and a twinge of sadness especially from the opening cue of the song.

Shouldn't this be in the K2 forum?

As to the question, I also perceive the mystery and sadness. I also get a sense of isolation, and also melancholy. The isolation may be a result of playing K2 where the Telos Academy is on one of the planets poles, in the middle an ice wasteland. The melancholy, however, I think is an intentional objective on the composer's part, specifically to reflect the state of the Academy at the time - empty, skeletal, and having something very, very wrong about it.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

Yes, most definitely THAT! XD. But in all seriousness (if it is a serious topic IDK) I think the atmosphere would probably be strict because of Atris, unfriendly and hostile due to the handmaidens' attitudes towards outsiders, intimidating because they are willing to steal things if needed (also because they can beat almost anyone in hand to hand combat) and "cold" because they live in the polar regions.
