OriginEdit

Anton Chekov was a Russian writer known for his command over the short story. He was once a playwright but left the theater when one of his plays met sour review. However, his most famous work is a literary term called Chekov’s Gun. It is where a background object, person or statement is mentioned in the beginning of the story with little further continuation. Around the end of the story, the element is reintroduced as vital to the story.

EffectsEdit

Wearing the first pince-nez heightens observational skills to the point of super-human levels. The wearer will eventually be able to identify potential threats at every turn, causing immense paranoia. Being near the artifact causes suspicion in it and nearby people and objects. Staring into the lens will show an nearby object or a re-enactment of an earlier statement that will cause the veiwer to become extremely suspicious of that thing to the point of obsession.

The second pince-nez allows the wearer to experience clairvoyance via sight. This can be immediately controlled to zone in on a specific object or search for one person out of a large crowd. The downside is the user tends to ask more questions instead of answering them, rendering it unhelpful for field work involving more than one person.
