The Bennet Institute for Psychic Research and Development, more commonly known by the locals as simply 'The Institute', was established in the year 1948 by Joffrey Bennet, a well known and respected university professor in the field of psychology. Joffrey had always been fascinated by psychics, and the abilities they had. After writing several papers on the subject, including in depth interviews with 'famous' psychics he had met by combing the local news archives, he decided that there ought to be a place for people to come if they had no idea what they were doing with their abilities. While he originally went in with just a house and good intentions, he eventually became extremely adapt at working with pyschics, and taught his son Alexander to follow in his footsteps.

The Institute, as you might expect, specializes in the study and research of psychic abilities. The staff there, headed by Alexander, work with individuals (mostly young adults) who possess psychic talents, but do not yet know how to control them. These people are, essentially, students, and will live at the Institute for a period of time, undergoing testing and studies until the staff feel they have sufficient control over their abilities, and are ready to 'graduate'. After leaving, the students are expected to return for periodic testing and to prove they've maintained that level of control. Please see the housing & testing section for more information.
