- n. Plural form of cacographer.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The protagonist, Nicodemus Weal, is an apprentice to Magister Agwu Shannon, who was once a politically savvy wizard but has since been exiled to the backwater of Starhaven academy where he continues his research and looks after the scorned group known as cacographers.
While cacographers are scorned by the rest of the wizard class, Magister Shannon looks after them and believes that one of them, Nicodemus, may be the wizard foretold by prophecy who will prevent a cataclysmic war that would destroy all human language.
Proving their innocence becomes harder when the murderer begins killing male cacographers one by one . . . and all evidence suggests that Nicodemus will be next.
And of course there are doctors who are notorious cacographers.
