Detention is the punishment at Foxfire. Keefe is a frequent visitor to detention, as is Sophie (who is sometimes there because of Keefe). It takes place during lunch, in a glass pyramid that is one floor below Dame Alina's office. The Detention Hall is very gloomy because it has a low ceiling and the windows block most of the light. Any mentor can assign a prodigy to detention. Prodigies can be given detention for just one day, or for several weeks or more. Every day, a different mentor leads detention, and give the prodigies a task. Essentially, it serves the same exact purpose it would serve in the human world: to punish misbehaving prodigies.

Some of the mentors and their detentions include:

  • Lady Belva - Ballroom dancing
  • Lady Galvin - Ironing her capes
  • Sir Conley - Listening to Siren Song (a terribly screechy music)
  • Lady Alexine - Allows last-minute studying before Midterms
  • Sir Donwell - Listening to Dwarven poetry
  • Lady Cadence - Peeling curdleroots to for her experiments, putting up effluxers to protect Foxfire from the Ogres
