Pascal is a well-known scholar at Dunwyn University who is more of a glorified assistant to many of the professors. That job doesn't pay the bills so he's also works part time at a small independent book store. One day at work he finds an old book with a mysterious note about Dunwyn's hidden past.
A baker by trade, Paul is one of Pascal's close friends. He does his best to keep Pascal out of trouble and tries to knock some common sense into him when he needs it the most.
