OriginEdit

Charles Fort (1874-1932) was an American writer and researcher, and is one of the figureheads in the early study of anomalous phenomenon, such as extraterrestrial life, spontaneous fires, levitation, unexplained disappearances, poltergeists, and cryptids.

Initially a reporter, Fort's first major published success was The Book of the Damned, a nonfiction exploration of scientific phenomena that was "damned," or excluded in discussion by mainstream scientists. One of his major theories, first proposed in this book, was the idea of the Super-Sargasso Sea, a dimension where all things lost go to, and eventually will rain down onto the earth from. Fort didn't believe this theory, but proposed it so as to make the greater point that the more accepted scientific theories should not be treated as undeniable truths, as the same evidence can be interpreted in many equally valid ways.

EffectsEdit

Imbued with Fort's life-long love of the paranormal, his umbrella now causes rainstorms whenever it is opened. However, the things that fall will never be rain. Previous precipitation has included books, cotton candy, spare keys, cranberry juice, and actual cats and dogs.
