To think that he lives in the past would be a mistake. The Historian once consulted a psychic to know the future and she predicted that he would better understand the present once he knew the past. Wordplay was never his strong point and the Historian tried to forget the psychic’s mocking words, but she had the last turn of the card. History has caught up with him and is now an important part of who he is. He spends his time immersed in past events, surfacing only long enough to share his knowledge with anyone smart enough to listen. (source )
