Special Sub-Topic: Secrets of "The Immortal Nicholas Flamel" Series
|What is another name for Old Spider?|
Areop-Enap. Areop-Enap formed an alliance with Perenelle Flamel when they were both captured by Dee and were imprisoned on Alcatraz during the entire series. There is a legend that he created the world from a worm and a huge clam shell.
|Who was a famous bard, and used to be an apprentice of Dr. John Dee?|
William Shakespeare. When Will worked with Nicholas, he was extremely unhappy because all he did was do errands. But when he met Dee, he was happy again because he could read, write, and do all worthy jobs. Nicholas hated Will because Will sent musketeers chasing Nicholas and Perenelle and nearly got Perenelle dead. After they meet again, Will explains to Nicholas that it was a mistake and he would like to forgive him so now Nicholas does not hate him anymore.
|Who is one of the greatest warriors of time and is travelling with the twins and Flamel?|
Scathach (The Shadow). Aoife is a mighty warrior too. Alexander the Great is not mentioned. Cu Chulainn was also a mighty warrior but he is already killed. Scathach comes with the twins and Nicholas everywhere they go. She is able to defeat 12 highly trained police officers, and is capable of defeating a whole inhuman army. She was only defeated once in single combat, by Niten.
|Which now unused prison was used to hold Perenelle Flamel captive?|
Alcatraz. Alcatraz is also called The Isle of the Pelicans. It was discovered by Juan Manuel de Ayala. It also has a Spanish name. It is unused because the salt air rotted away at the limestone, making it easier to escape. Of course, this was at Alcatraz. Robben Island and Devil's Island are other effective prisons, but they are not mentioned in the series. Azkaban is not in this series, though it is a prison.
|Which megalithic structure does Flamel take the twins to?|
Stonehenge. Stonehenge is probably the most famous megalithic structure. A megalithic structure is an array of tall stones (megaliths) set up into a design. Megaliths can also be tombs of ancient chieftains. Stonehenge is very mysterious because it would take a mighty effort, even by hundreds of strong men to put up even one stone, and back then, all they had was their own strength, no machines. Stonehenge is located in Salisbury, England. The other answers are megaliths, but they are not included in the series.
|What is the sword of Air?|
Durendal. Excalibur is the sword of Ice, Clarent is the sword of Fire, and Joyeuse is the sword of Earth. Joyeuse was also Charlemagne's personal sword. Dee is in possession of all except Clarent. Joyeuse can be used in summoning a fearsome Archon, Coatlicue from her dark prison and creating leygates. Joyeuse is described as "a thing of beauty." When put with the other swords, a gritty brown sand appears on the blade.
|Who is the husband of Joan of Arc in this series?|
The Comte de Saint Germain. He is a famous French figure in history and has composed many different pieces of music. His "talent" is that of annoying people and making everybody hate him, but of course they don't kill him, although they try. Through his own efforts, he made himself immortal by means of a secret recipe; although he says he "forgot" it, I don't believe him. Germain is now a rock star. He is also a Master of Fire. He lives in Paris, France. Nicholas Flamel is already married, I made up John of Arc, and Josh Newman is not married and 16 years old.
|Which Sumerian king taught Sophie and Josh Newman the Magic of Water?|
King Gilgamesh. There is a book about him called "The Epic of Gilgamesh." He has the knowledge of all of the Magics, but cannot use them as he does not have an aura. He is the oldest humani, even seeing Abraham work the magic to create the Codex. It is said that Abraham himself gave Gilgamesh the gift of immortality, although it was faulty and gives Gilgamesh a corrupted memory, nearly killing Nicholas because of that. Poseidon is never mentioned, and Nereus and Phobos are dreadful creatures. Right now, King Gilgamesh lives near Stonehenge.
|What is the Horned God's other name?|
Cernunnos. Cerberus is a guardian of the Underworld, and Archirty is a messed up name I made. Cernunnos has no magic, though he is an Archon. He is a fearsome sight, wielding a 6 foot long dinosaur jawbone. He turned ugly when he started experimenting on himself when experimenting on others was banned. Cernunnos attacks Palamedes, Will, Nicholas, Scathach, and the twins.
|Which sword does Josh use?|
Clarent. Clarent is an evil sword and was used by Mordred to kill his father/uncle, King Arthur, although Cernunnos claims he killed King Arthur and Mordred merely plotted. Either way, Clarent was used. Clarent can make you go crazy by merely touching it. When you use it, it gives you promises, of feeling Awakened, and makes a boy feel like a man. Clarent was first given to Josh in the Magician. And once again, Joyeuse is the sword of Air, Durendal is the sword of Earth, and Excalibur is the sword of Ice.
