Cygnets can influence the faculty during RPs which allows them to bring any pet they want to school no matter how extravagant.
Have double value on any votes regarding school trips/projects (e.g their vote counts more) crucially, this counts for winter balls and spring flings as well.
They are capable of bribing students.
Are unaffected by adult and officer interference.
The Cygnets are Pacific View's elite.
Most of them are very well-off and clever coming from a privileged upbringing. In the school's early days, all the students were model Cygnets, as the school was only open to the elite. But as Pacific View's standing gradually declined the school was forced to allow the less privileged in.
Because of this, they have a distinct distaste for the slovenly and less cultured students (including, of course, the other factions) and hope that they can turn Pacific View back into the school it once was. They are a tightly-knit and competent bunch with dangerously powerful parents. They think money can win it all but can it?

Vultures: Leader: ???Sub-Leader: ???Perks:
Can smuggle personal items into school such as beer or a vintage tomahawk.
Can have double the amount of blotches on their record and suffer detentions with less consequence.
They are capable of intimidating students.
They are unaffected by night conditions, and never in need flashlights.
The Vultures are the least student-like of the bunch; they dislike most things about the school system and instead opt for their own rules. They are seen as the school's rebels, and to the other factions, a blight on the school itself. They tend to be compromised of the most normal and low-class kids - most of them have struggled throughout their lives and make sure the world knows it. They put their hobbies and interests before studying and view most teachers as bothersome and poor at their jobs. They're the voice, they believe, of the people rather than the machine that is school. Their ideal hope for the school is equality across the board and no one to tell them what's best for them. They think we're better off without rules but are we?

Orcas have the faculty's general trust so in RPs they are allowed to use cellphones in class or campus with no consequences.
They get mission info before everyone else and sometimes special information the others won't.
They are capable of giving students cheat sheets.
They are capable of breaking into places, and hacking computers.
The Orcas are the academically superior and represent the generally smarter students in school. Orcas feel they have they stayed quiet too long and in the midst of the faction war have finally found their voice. The inadequate school supplies and poor learning conditions are top of their priorities. That's not even getting into the other big problem of students playing around and messing up the school average. They hope to put knowledge and learning front and center and make the school a well-read and respected academy with long-term prospects. Most of them are on the normal or poor side but that only inspires them to do more. They think they know it all but do they?
Their signature colour is blue
Can go anywhere on the map without repercussion.
Can fail to attend or score well in class up to 5 times with no penalty due to being on a sports team.
They are capable of beating up students. They are capable of beating bosses and accomplishing other unwinnable power related or strength tasks that no else can.
The Rexes are Pacific View's sports stars and athletes, the strongest and dimmest of the bunch. They've always put clubs, competitions and training above all else, much to the faculty's chagrin. Pacific View's sports equipment and stadiums are on the cheap side and while the athletes are strong they've never really gotten their chance to shine. Or so a Rex will tell you. Rexes are a friendly and loyal bunch who can even make friends of foes - if a Rex gets hurts you can expect the entire pack to come for vengeance. Even if it leads them straight into a trap. They think they can power through anything but can they?

Honour Students: Student Council President: ???Student Council Vice-President: ???Perks:
Honour Students have the power to open and disband clubs though they will always warn you of their actions prior.
Teachers never bother you. Period. you have the highest authority and supremacy in the school.... in theory.
Whatever faction you initially belonged to is still the power you own.
Pacific View's trusted student council is their last line of defence. They are the hardest workers in school and have the most trust by far. Instead of aligning with any faction they align with the school faculty and do their best to sort out the day to day quarrelling though it never truly ends. They respect their teachers and wear their uniform properly. There are rumours that the Honour Students seek out those who are good with the faculty. They think they can set the school straight but... let's face it, they can't.
