The Great Cape Destruction, as dubbed by Keefe, was the incident in which Sophie had burned a hole in Lady Galvin's cape. It became highly embellished, and it became a turning point in Sophie's social life, causing her to become popular in school. Both prodigies and Mentors heard of this event, with various reactions.
- Sir Conley: Sir Conley joked that they'd have to work up to bottling fire in elementalism, so she wouldn't burn down the school.
- Lady Anwen: Lady Anwen told her in multispeciesial studies that she hadn't laughed so hard in 324 years.
- Sir Faxon: Sir Faxon had to cancel his metaphysics lecture, because he snorted lushberry juice all over his clothes.
- Elwin: Elwin laughed when Keefe told him what had happened.
