You may make assessments and declarations concerning things that you cannot observe directly, either looking back through your memories to examine the thing again or perceiving that thing in mysterious and incomprehensible ways. Players should work together with the GM to work out the exact limits of this power.

Adrian grew up in a small Alaskan town (Palmer) with his potato farmer parents.
A shy, nerdish child, he has no idea that he is a direct descendant of Hugin,
one of Odin’s Ravens.
His heritage as a child of Thought and Memory gives him an insatiable curiosity
for knowledge and a near-eidetic memory. He is constantly reading books, editing
Wikipedia, addicted to TV-Tropes and an avid fan of all other sorts of
After High School, he received a scholarship to attend the University of
Washington. He graduated with a degree in Library Sciences and currently works
in the Archives of the University Libraries.
Ever since he discovered his shifter nature as a teen, he has done his best to
suppress that part of his personality. Early on, this would lead to sessions of
“sleep-shifting” where he would wake, naked, out in the Alaskan woods. Now an
adult, he has learned to better control this problem, but he still wishes he
didn’t have to deal with it at all.
In pursuit of this he has begun secretly researching the paranormal and
supernatural, attempting to find a cure for himself or a technique that will
grant him better control.
