OK. Who's the least popular adult student you have?
That would be Gary.
It's usually a Gary. OK, to buy a little more time, you're going to tell the others to attack him.
Why would they do that?
We're just going to cast a basic treachery hex here. Everyone will have noticed how awful and stinky Gary is, so when you reveal to them that he's actually the Night Lord Malaktor, they'll instantly believe it, because we all desperately want our gut-judgments to be true.
Who's the Night Lord Malaktor?
He's the ultimate evil, your long lost son or brother or dog, he murdered your sensei, he lives in a flaming tower in the distant East, and he stole the Amulet of the Pendant.
Oh, that guy.
He is the worst. Anyway, he's now conveniently taken the form of the saddest, least popular adult in your school, so you're going to teach the students a new spell to subdue him.
How does that work?
You basically hit a guy in the head until he forgets things.
Let's do it, then. OK guys. Uh. There's a new ... thing. GARY DID IT! He's the Dread Night Mukkkalak and he stole all your money and wants to eat your hair!
-sound of much childish shrieking-
How's it working?
It's good. All the sadults are wailing on Gary.

Malaktor can be detected by the evil blue energy that constantly floats around him, as well as
the tiny hint of a food blister he proudly displays.
