Trapspringers are masters in the art of disarming traps.
They usually use somehow unusual ways to disarm them though, and most
of these ways are not the best around. Trapspingers are taught the art
of disarming traps by retired trapspringers at the Trapspringer Academy
of Hylo. These studies last for an undetermined time, mostly until the
student gets bored and decides to go test his skills on the field.
