The Librarians make up and represent the Atheneum. There is one for each Tale ‘group’ – the European, the Arabic, the Fables, and for the first time, the Modern. The Librarians watch over the Tales in their respective groups – introduce the new incarnations to the community, make sure everyone is following the rules, mediate relations between Tales, offer a helping hand to those in need, collect dues, keep the Pentamerone running, etc. They’re in charge of the magic that might come with their group, whether it be in someone’s ability or in an object of power. It can be a demanding job at times.
