Name Anachron
Type (normal or magic) Normal
Introduced In "Insert Teleporting Annoyance Here"

The Anachron is a gadget used by Society Agents.

Description[edit | edit source]

The "Anachron" Device, as it is affectionately called by Charis (and later Douglas), derives its name from the literary device "anachronism".

According to an anachronism is

  1. Something located at a time when it could not have existed or occurred
  2. An artifact that belongs to another time
  3. A person who seems to be displaced in time; who belongs to another age

The Anachron began life as an ordinary Society Plothole Generator. However, after much customization, it no longer closely resembles a ray gun. It now takes the shape of a wristwatch with retractable metal pieces along its sides. These pieces are each Bookmarks on a miniature spring-loaded hinge.

The Anachron device utilizes Bookmarks attached to a target to estimate a probable spawn point for teleporting - alternatively, faster-than-human - Stues and Sues, such as those that were found in the Jumper fandom during the device's beta testing. The device has proved successful at its function; however, a current side effect shrinks any Agent that uses it.

It is a part of a much bigger gadget - the Plot Armour.
