I apologize for any misunderstandings that may have occurred. To clarify I am searching for an elusive and ancient formula called the Aetherkytherum. It is essentially the algorithm for all equations when it comes to the study of Aetherkythera which is the Science of Aether or "Aether Theory."
My condition which I expound upon here
can only be remedied by a process that requires the application of the Aetherkytherum.
The only history both documented or otherwise is Knock's journal which implies that the Great Engineer revealed the algorithm to Knock himself shortly before he disappeared.
The greatest minds in Aethasia have tried and failed to uncover the algorithm which is very unfortunate for me. Due to a series of circumstances, including the fragment of the stone embedded in my forehead, I have devoted my life to Aetherkythera and the uncovering of the Aetherkytherum. I have traveled all over Aethasia collecting every scrap of information concerning Aetherkythera which is all currently kept secure inside Knowhere. In all of my travels and studies, I have yet to uncover any substantial clues concerning the algorithm.
Thanks to Miss Coppernight I have managed to secure Knocks's diary and have locked myself away in my workshop with merely hours left. I am writing a rather long piece now.
