Isaac is a [[Headmaster]] among the [[Thinkamancer]]s. {{ref| [[LIAB Text 40]]}}
First seen when Parson entered the Magic Kingdom after the Battle for Gobwin Knob, he summoned the Thinkamancers to unravel the [[Croakamancer]]-[[Dirtamancer]] [[link up]], saying they'd do it for no charge.
Isaac is a rarity among the casters of the [[Magic Kingdom]], not content with debating and arguing over theories and hypotheses on the nature of [[magic]] and [[Erf]], but actively working to discern reliable and consistent facts. So far, this has led to the creation of a number of devices to aid [[thinkamancer]]s in better accessing nodes of amplification or attuning to the frequencies of certain [[G-String]] vibrations (all of which resemble children's playground equipment from our world).
Should he ever link up with a Carnymancer, they will create devices capable of automatically switching Thinkamancers between nodes at precisely calibrated frequencies to achieve Thinkamancy that, while not as versatile, will actually rival the Arkendish in power (like a Ferris Wheel or a Roller Coaster).
Isaac may hope that he or one of the other [[Great Minds that Think Alike]] can replace [[Charlie]] as the attuned holder of the [[Arkendish]], if [[Parson]] succeeds in defeating [[Charlie]].
=Real World References=
His name coupled with his tendencies as a natural philosopher are a reference to Isaac Newton.
His appearance is a reference to Carl Sagan.
His desire for the Arkendish as a tool of observation may also be a reference the use of radio telescopes in astronomy.
Both Carl Sagan and Isaac Newton were teachers, and one of the titles for the person in charge of a school is Headmaster.
