Your soul, perhaps?
For the past 35 years Christian Chelman has been studying magic as practiced by the magicians of antiquity, by secret societies and by what are often referred to as 'primitive' peoples.
From his many travels, extensive encounters and wide-ranging research, he has amassed a unique collection of magical artifacts, providing irrefutable proof of the presence of the supernatural and fantastic in today's world.
His private museum houses a mother lode of treasures, including prestigious mythical relics, an ancient demon bottle, a bewitched Corona typewriter (circa 1914), a complete Vampire hunter's kit (1899), the cursed tobacco pouch of Captain Vanderdeken, a vase of dreams, the Fifth Seal of the Apocalypse, the pack of divination cards used by Cassandra Grosemans, a haunted Russian doll, an extraordinary time machine developed in 1910 by Nikola Tesla...and much, much more!
Every item is carefully studied and restored by a team of specialists.
Only then is it 'reactivated' with all due diligence and care.
