OriginEdit

Charles Lyell was one of the foremost geologists who supported the idea of uniformitarianism – that the Earth’s features were slowly carved out by natural processes still at work today. He wrote his position in Principles of Geology to challenge the widely held views of a static landscape. His used scientific research into earthquakes, volcanoes and geologic layering to show parts of the earth were vastly different long ago. Through this evidence, he unintentionally concluded that the earth was more than several hundred million years than most had firmly believed. Lyell was also a close friend with Charles Darwin, who applied Lyell’s theory upon geological change to the evolution of life.

EffectsEdit

One of the brushes from his tool belt allows the user to clear large amounts of dust in a matter of seconds, while another will attract foreign detritus towards an area. A hammer and chisel will form microfissures that crystallize the host into solid mineral. Gloves will allow the user to shift and recombine separate layers of earthen material and the hand loupe causes specimens to greatly grow in size. However, every effect is slow acting and strenuous like the geological processes. The user’s intended effect may be completely fulfilled any time from hours to months after first usage.
