Background: Ernest Wagner was always a curious child, seeking to understand the world and uncover the vestiges of our past. He became an archeologist, thrilled to travel the world, cataloging, digging, and writing papers. However, one particular site changed him for ever. Ernest Wagner stumbled upon an ancient tome, bound in a leather that looked frighteningly similar to skin, written in an ominous and undecipherable script. The book itself felt as if it was sentient, peering into Ernest's soul, amused at the confusion it witnessed.

Ever since then, Ernest has made it his sole pursuit in life to make sense of the tome. The archaeologist has begun travelling the world on any trace of something similar to the script he found. The obsession has become draining on his marriage - resulting in divorce. At times when all is quite, and he is alone with the artifact, Ernest swears he hears it whispering.

He has become increasingly less interested in the academic, and orderly aspects of his profession - and more open to notions of the arcane, and pseudo-scientific.
