Atlantis was once a beautiful and blossoming island which was home to many Witches and Wizards in Ancient Times. However, these Witches and Wizards were untrained in the Magic Arts and their spells proved disastrous to the natural environment around them. Eventually, the island was destroyed after an Amoraccio Charm backfired and caused the island to fall in love with the bottom of the sea. This caused Atlantis to sink and killed hundreds of Witches and Wizards. This catastrophe was what inspired St. Owland to create his school, St. Owland's School of Magic.
