The not-so-illustrious administration: established in 1905, the Atheneum is rather young as institutions go, but that’s only in the United States of America. It is descended from similar institutions around the world that have been around – loosely or otherwise – for centuries, or at least as long as stories have been told. Headed by four Librarians, this is the institution that makes all the rules, regulates the magic, and keeps track of the magical objects. Tales are required to check in with the Atheneum at least twice a year. In addition, each Tale is required to pay dues four times a year, according to their income.
