What would you think each school would be in real life/rpg class? How would they fight
Fire- because of Dots and high damage, i think we talk about a passionate man. In rpg could be a barbarian Ice-patient and solid person. Tank Storm- chaotic person. Damage dealer/glass cannon, maybe some kind of archer
Balance-a person focused in equality. Dunno, some knight with debuffs, maybe
Death, probably a cunning person. Well thats necromancer in every game. Life- helping person. He is closer to paladin, than priest, but healer anyway Myth- well myth is the most normal class, he "summons" just animal fighters with big swords or something, or does direct hits. So warrior. He pretty much is the closest to normal person.
"Real Life." I'm gonna go with the sciences for this, just having some fun.
Fire - Thermochemist. The study of heat energy and phase change. Burning, melting and boiling are all ways to release energy and transform matter.
Storm - Nuclear Physicist. The science of releasing energy by fusing atoms together. Really dangerous, but the power is tremendous.
Ice - Hydrologist. The science of water, pressure and energy flow. Remove enough energy and everything freezes; add enough energy and everything boils over.
Balance - Archaeologist. The study and understanding of past cultures through the artifacts they leave behind. As a 'science,' archaeology employs chemistry, physics, geology, biology, botany, entomology, anthropology, etc in interpreting evidence from past societies. It is a fusion of all the sciences, all equally 'balanced' in what they offer to the archaeologist.
Life - Physiologist. In order to heal, you have to know exactly how everything in the body works together. (Of course, you can also use that knowledge to kill a living creature....)
Death - Forensic Taphonomist. The study of death and decay, applied to modern legal cases. They look at all that remains in a grave and can tell you why it ended up that way: what happened and when, was it human activity, an animal, or a natural process...
Myth - Paleontologist. They study fossils, the remains of creatures that lived eons ago, and use that knowledge to tell the story of life on earth.
I tried to avoid basic 'biology, chemistry, etc' in favor of delving deeper into what the schools are known to do and how they might apply to our modern world in terms of science.
