OriginEdit

Mezzofanti was an Italian cardinal famed for knowing and understanding a wide variety of languages. He worked at the University of Bologna, until he went to Rome to work for the Vatican library. Some of the languages and dialects he knew included French, Chinese, Coptic, Polish, Arabic and Algonquin.

EffectsEdit

His zucchetto needs to be placed on the person’s head to be activated. The user is able to understand, speak, respond, interpret, and retain information in many languages. Although, the effect only lasts when it is worn, so any understanding is gone when it is taken off.
