A prize, awarded annually by the Assassins' Guild School in memory of Wigblock Prior House old boy, Sir Bernard Selachii.

And of course all young Assassins know the story of Sir Bernard Selachii, who, upon meeting an assassin financed by a business rival, spent the entire evening with him, reminiscing about the great days they had shared in Wigblock Prior House, before suggesting that they drink a toast to the Old School, and then, while his would-be assassin held his glass aloft, beating him to death with the brandy bottle.

Subsequently, Sir Bernard endowed the Sir Bernard Selachii Award for Sheer Coolth, a much coveted prize to this day in a school where cool and style matter.
