Lady Gisela's Archetype is a black book wrapped in bands of gold and silver, first mentioned in Book 6: Nightfall. The book contains research and studies on humans. The archetype is secured by a special lock, and can only be opened by a special key. While Sophie and her friends were trying to find Sophie's Human Family, Lady Gisela told them that Fintan had stolen The Archetype and requested it back in exchange for information.
The Key[edit | edit source]
The key for the book is an Imparter-sized metal square that can be divided into four separate parts. The parts are four separate pieces of metal: two silver and two gold; the parts make clinking noises, each with variations in their curved edges. The four pieces can be fitted together in three known different combinations, but only one of the combinations will unlock The Archetype. When assembled together correctly, with all the gold bits connected, the key spells out the word 'Vespera' in Elvin Runes. The key was found in Candleshade.
