The Magnus Institute, London, is an academic institution dedicated to researching the esoteric and paranormal. They are not - and they would like to make this clear - paranormal investigators; they are researchers dedicated to revealing knowledge of the unknown. Nevertheless, there are many mysteries about the Institute itself. It was established by Jonah Magnus in 1818 and is currently run by Elias Bouchard.

The Institute is associated with the Entity known as The Eye. It is also patronized by other groups such as the Lukas Family (MAG 33).

Building Edit

The Institute building is located in Chelsea (MAG 26) near the Thames Embankment. It is a small building, old, and pillared (MAG 11), with at least three floors (MAG 123). The Institute is connected to the tunnels that were formerly below Millbank Prison, though they extend beyond it.

The Institute possesses a library of books on the supernatural, which is well organised.

The Archives is a collection of statements on the supernatural taken (and researched when possible) at the Institute. It is, at present, horrendously disorganised due to the (in)action of Gertrude Robinson, the previous Head Archivist. At present, Jonathan Sims is the Head Archivist of the Magnus Institute.

Motto Edit

Audio. Vigilo. Opperior." is the motto on the crest of the Magnus Institute, which roughly translates to "I listen. I watch. I wait."
