The Chymist

I found another drawing of my friend, Dr. P. L. Tarrec, dressed in the traditional garb of Moroccan alchemists.

Tarrec told me that you could always tell when the other alchemists he encountered while living in the city of Fez had assembled during the night to debate their processes by the smell of sulfur. It was there taught the members of the Brotherhood of Games to make black-powder explosives from fermented urine and there that he learned to calculate the dialectical movement of dark stars.
