Professor Oliver Finnagin

Controversial Historian and Author


Finnagin is a history professor of the Dark Age and Literalist schools, specializing in the Old Ones.


Professor Finnagin is particularly widely traveled, but has attracted criticism over his bestselling textbook, Empire’s Echo: A History of the World.

Several notable academics, while perhaps agreeing with some of his arguments, dislike his style of writing and methods of forming theories, which they believe are based too much on opinion and supposition. Adherents to the Age of Light school (a group of academics who claim that the Old Ones were primitive and barbaric in spite of their access to rare elements) have often rebuked Professor Finnagin’s views on the relative levels of technology of the two civilizations. Professor Dukan Thor is a particular opponent.
