The Academy has a class for every skill. Well...almost any skill. There are some things that you just can't learn in school. Our trainers can only get a Minion through the necessary basics required to enter the job market. After that only jobs posted by Villains can further a Minion's Evil ambition.
A basic understanding of magic will be an asset to even the most mundane Villain. As they bumble into a nest of fairies it will be YOU, mighty Minion who will save the day with a quick word of arcane...might!?!
Gremlin or goblin? Demon or devil. Baby dragon or horse dressed up for a kid's party? With some basic knowledge of the "other world" any Villain might give a side ways almost interested glance in your general direction.
Science Fiction Stuff
Is that a ray gun or a battery? I don't know! But you will...after you take this mechanics class in all things Flash Gordon. Fix anything...for a price.
Zombies. What are they and can they sweep a floor? Do vampires really count everything and other important skills related to eating the living...and resurrecting grandma.
By the time you finish this class you'll think you were a feral Minion raised by wolves in the unforgiving prairie. You'll call Kevin Costner a personal friend. Your connection to animals might rival Tarzan. Seriously, even the Crocodiles might think twice before eating you.
It takes hard work and perseverance to please a demanding master. And the key to pleasing is competence. Skills define a Minion by determining which jobs are within their short little grasp. New skills open up new opportunities. By taking advantage of our (almost) free classes even a lowly worm like you may one day become the power behind the throne.
What are you waiting for? Time to get VERBOTENOUS.
