“Let’s get this revolution business over with soon, so I can get back to my work – bones don’t talk to just anybody, ya know?”
Paleomancy is the study of ancient bones, and the ability to invoke powerful magic derived from those bones. Tak Trooblood is perhaps the most famous and successful practitioner of this type of magic today. Using his vast knowledge of extinct animals, and drawing from his own very impressive collection of ancient bones, Tak can call forth the power of little-known magical creatures that once roamed the landscape of the Known World. The authorities of Gateway have declared him a heretic and forced him to close the doors of his beloved Museum of Magical Beasts. Shortly thereafter Tak went underground and joined forces with the resistance.
