Prof. Blackwood’s mind is the kind that sees patterns – it’s what makes him a gifted mathematician. It also gave him the first glimpses of the supernatural network that underlies the mundane world, and the ability to sift through pointless puffery in ancient books to winkle out the few bits of real magical information. It’s amazing no one had been able to out him as a necromancer – just look at him!
