He's Malistaire's brother, he's not supposed to come across as a nice guy. But he's very much like Snape in the Potter stories. You don't like him, but he really is one of the good guys.

WHAT Cyrus is not a bad professor!!! He is in fact my favorite . His rude remarks make me laugh . He's awesome! Why would some people want to change a professor? His annoyed behavior is not bad or "bad treatment" then Kingsisle would not have put it in the game . Is awesome and so is professor drake!

If professor drake was truly mean he wouldn't help you stop malistaire and guide you through dragonsypre.

Cyrus Drake is awesome! Once you get past level 40+ he starts treating you better. He's great and reminds me of Snape from the HP Series. Seriously he's pretty sweet. My favorite professor after Greyrose who is always proud of your accomplishments and seems like the person who would give out cookies to everyone.

He isn't that bad of a teacher.

True he tries to get every student expelled for a certain lame reason and doesn't give the warmest of welcomes to newer students

But the reason he is so tough on students is because your the spiral's hope and he wants you to realize your potential.

Besides his brother went mad wanting to save his wife so he deeply wants you to help his brother Malistaire find peace.

Personally my wizard (who is a bit lazy :P ) doesn't like him that much but she loves the spell quests he gives her.

Professor Cyrus Drake isn't the most popular of teachers but it isn't the only reason people hate him.
He and his brother look quite a like and thus many students just assume he is malistaire (Sorry Cyrus but you need some fire shields because those Flamezilla pets might be mad at you :P )

He is possibly the reason why my storm wizard made this joke in her free time
"Myth wizards are a myth because Cyrus is Malistaire's clone brother"
Since myth wizards are kinda rare

He is mean but his brother Mallistare is um,EVIL!!! If your brother was trying to kill you and your family and friends what would you do? Also in dragonspyre,he helps you. He is supposed to be like that.

I do not think Cyrus is a bad professor. I have a balance wizard (level 49) and a myth wizard (level 12), and even though Cyrus is mean at first, he gains respect for you after Dragonspyre. Am I correct in assuming you haven't been to Dragonspyre yet?

No way, I think it's kinda funny, plus KI would have to do a lot of redesigning.

When you start the game he tries to expel you from ravenwood for no reson. However get to dragonspire and he would warm up to you. But mostly bad. I think he is like thatbecause his brother malistre is evil.

No... I think bad might be a strong word. Cyrus has problems with anger and is often frustrated, but he gets the job done. It's supposed to be his personality.

Absolutely not!
In fact, he's one of my favorites. He is a bit stern at first, but once you earn his respect, he softens up quite a bit. Respect is earned, young wizard. In real life with Cyrus.

And I hate to tell you but even 1000 wizards won't make a difference in a game that hosts over 30 millions users.

Well I like him and I think he's a good professor. It's true he's rather crabby and irritable but he is Malistaire's brother and he's the key to Dragonspyre and defeating Malistaire. He warms up to you eventually, too. (Kinda) Anyways his remarks are what really makes him a good character and professor. Plus he's the one who sends us to Aquila.

Well, he does make the game more interesting, seeing as how all the professors don't have the same personality. And anyways, if you could find a school where all the professors were nicew, by all means, sign me up.

Each teacher is different.

Our fire teacher- she's the one who is supposed to be nice, and to be a great teacher. She is my 2nd favorite.
Our ice teacher- the main person on the message boards. Knows the hawsers to most. Wise. Uh, elder.
Our storm teacher- the small put powerful one. Supposed to be funny, but nice also.
Our life teacher- the nice one. She reminds me of Yoda, calm and nice, but not 900 years old.
Our death teacher- mostly for jokes. He ties for my favorite teacher, because he is lazy and funny.
Our balance teacher- old. Wise. Awesome. Favorite teacher of mine.

What is the trait not used yet? Mean. I admit, he is a little harsh, but later on he is the only teacher to volunteer to help us in DS. Would you be a little no edge if your brother went mad and then died?

Hey! Cyrus Drake is amazing! He is strict to shove you to your best content, and to defend the spiral. Quit it!

Nope, he has probably the most un-enviable job in all of Ravenwood. He has to prepare ALL young wizards to corner and defeat his own brother and colleague. I think he handles it in a most professional and stoic manner, acidic personality notwithstanding.

Could you picture any other professor willing and able to betray and defeat their own family in that way?

Maybe Lydia Greyrose, she has the professional integrity to openly admit and apologize for a mistake that caused chaos on Colossus Blvd.

I don't think even Merle Ambrose would have the ethical and moral fibre to do what Cyrus was burdened with. He had ample warning of Morganthe being a menace to society, but could not bring himself to destroy her.

You want to change Professer Drake's personality?!?!? He's not really a bad teacher, in fact he gets nicer later on in the game, but just having issues with people because some people accuse him of helping his brother (Mailistaire in case you didn't know) cause turmoil in the Spiral. He may be snobby at some times but he does give the game a few laughs with his irony. I wouldn't have it any other way for the most part.

At first he made me feel a bit Snaped, but since he is a Snape, he generally warms up to my adventures in Dragonspyre. We're pretty close friends now.

Cyrus Drake is still rude, to his brother! Maybe we could have a quest saying that something was wrong with him, like Morganthe struck him with a dark spore, which will grow and make him turn evil, when you complete it he will be really HAPPY! It could be a level 10+ quest. Make it anyway you want, Kingsisle, I just totally regret choosing Myth, and can you make Ivan talk faster, I get REALLY bored listening to him going so slow. He's like this: You.... must..... get...... some...... troll...... esscence. He's nice, but slow!
