The mean teacher

I actually find Cyrus Drake pretty interesting. He's actually one of the main reasons why I like the myth class so much. And I think it's pretty cool that he becomes nicer later, but for now, his meaness is quite a good motivating factor, because it actually makes me want to progress further in the game just to prove him wrong.

Not really. You'll notice that when you start training his spells, he will be mean to you, but then as you level up and gain better spells, he will slowlyyyyy be nice to you. When you train his spells, he will at first say stuff like: "Go away ... Go and play in the streets or something ..."
But after you train stuff like Minotaur and Earthquake, he will just say "Don't forget to add this spell in you deck!" just like the other professors. And after you restore Malistaire to peace, the myth teacher, at the headmaster's office, will finally admit that you are a truly remarkable student, and that "things are rough at the start". He will be nice to you eventually, believe me.

Cyrus is mean at first. But like people were saying, as you get higher in level and stronger in spells he will be nice to you. But I hate him because when the children are in trouble (cyclops Lane), you take the note to Ambrose and he reads it and says "I will NOT expel you from Ravenwood" so pretty much he wanted us wizards expelled <- dont know if thats spelled right

He's not that mean. Just a little strict, I mean you gotta have a few strict teachers! Where would the spiral be without them, Cyrus drake isn't mean, just strict, if your a myth person, your lucky!

I can understand why some may feel he is mean, but for some reason he never really bothered me. I just ignored his delivery and just did the quests. LOL. I have a level 70 Myth wizard. He does acknowledge your progress as you grow in the spiral. He's tough, but I feel fair.

He will get nicer as the game goes on. You have to improve and he has to get to know you.

I lol'd so hard.

But seriously, Cyrus is like that because you were chosen to battle malistare, and when he first notices you, he thinks you aren't capable of doing it.
You notice that after you defeat Malistare, he shows his personallity.

I for one love Cyrus he's my teacher and though people see him as mean I think he's just skeptical and strict which is good for a teacher. He doesn't waste time making a joke and goes ahead with the class. And he does get less strict around dragonspyre

My wizard, Emily Legendheart, is a ice wizard. I think he only warms up to Myth students. When I first meet him, I thought that he was a complete jerk. But now, I feel sorry for him. He gets nicer as you level up.

All the professors of the Spiral have their own personalities.
Some are more 'nurturing' than others, while others need you to earn their respect first. Cyrus isn't particularly fond of the 'up & coming wanna-be wizard', he wants you to demonstrate to him first that you are worthy of his respect. He has that abrasive personality for a reason - he is tainted after the fact that his brother turned evil, and his favorite sister-in-law was killed (as a result of Malistaire's craving for evil power than love for his family). It all fits into the storyline; as you level up and complete certain quests to demonstrate your skill, Cyrus does warm up to you and starts to become more encouraging. His lack of tact and interest in you at the start however, is somewhat motivating; you want to do as he asks because it earns you that respect. Its part of the reward. If you don't like Cyrus now, you will as you level up and build your skills.
