OriginEdit

Diogo Cão was a Portuguese explorer and one of the most notable navigators of the Age of Discovery. He made two voyages sailing along the west coast of Africa in the 1480s, discovering and exploring the Congo River and the coasts of present-day Angola and Namibia. This padrão, or land marker, was placed during his second expedition and placed farther inland than his previous padrãos.

CollectionEdit

Portuguese colonialists discovered it intact in its original location four centuries later, during the imperialist period of the late 1880s. It was then taken to Britain and bought at an auction by a private collector. After its effects, although benign, were discovered, the Warehouse quickly made a deal with the individual and acquired it.

EffectsEdit

The padrão needs to have its base buried in the ground to activate. It can find the original source of anything a person thinks of, whether it is a person, idea or object. It implants the location’s image into the person’s mind and grants them any other relevant information.
