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]] [[Caster Link|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).
Isaac employed a magical power emanating from his eyes to examine the Pyramid [[Sizemore]] built in the [[Magic Kingdom]], suggesting that Isaac can perform some [[Lookamancy]] spells.
Should he ever link up with a [[Carnymancer]], they will create devices capable of automatically switching [[Thinkamancers]] between [[node]]s 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.  Some of his suspicions about the laws of Erfworld include that there is "A counter-force for every force, a reaction to every action. Opposite, and perhaps equal."  which is one way of specifying the real world (Isaac Newton's) First Law of Physics.
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.
Before he tells Parson his name, Parson calls him Mr.Rogers which he does kind of resemble, but he is younger looking.
