The World of The Librarian franchise

In the fictional world of The Librarian there exists a secret society of Librarians who are the guardians of a wide range of magical and mythical relics.

About the Librarians

The Librarians are a fictional secret soiety that have existed as an order for centuries, and often undertake global-spanning adventures to recover items to keep them safe from people who would use them for evil purposes. The Librarians wish only to increase their knowledge, and use the relics for the betterment of mankind. They have been fighting a secret war with the Serpent Brotherhood since at least the fall of the library at Alexandria many centuries ago.

Librarians of note

There have been many librarians of note over the centuries, including;

* Eldred the Truly Wonderful, a historical Librarian who was considered great.
* Judson, he served as the Librarian and now is mentor to those who take up the mantle.
* Edward Wilde, the previous Librarian before Flynn, he faked his own death to steal the Spear of Destiny.
* Flynn Carsen, the current Librarian, a highly intelligent and resourceful adventurer.

Other Library Staff

* Charlene, she works in the Library and may have been a bodyguard to a previous Librarian.
* Nicole Noone, she works for the Library and serves as bodyguard to Librarians.

The Serpent Brotherhood

The Serpent Brotherhood were a splinter group of the Librarians, who separated off back when the Library was in Alexandria in ancient times. The Brotherhood wished to use the powers of the artifacts to rule the world, and this disagreement led to a secret war between the Librarians and the Brotherhood, who incited the riot that led to the destruction of the first Library (in Alexandria). The Brotherhood take their name from the serpent that brought knowledge to Adam and Eve.

About the Library

The 'Library' has existed at least since ancient times, and houses both magical and powerful relics. In ancient times the 'Library' was located in the Library of Alexandria, and is currently in the Metropolitan Public Library in New York Public Library.

The library at Alexandria was destroyed when the Serpent Brotherhood incited a riot that destroyed it (sometime before the 8th Century). It has yet to be revealed where the 'Library' was housed between the 8th century and the 1890s when the New York Metropolitan Public Library was built.

The current 'Library' is housed in the Metropolitan Public Library which has a secret annex that stores all of the magical and powerful relics. The entrance to the annex is behind a hidden door disguised as a book of shelves. When Judson was first showing Flynn the entrance, he gave Flynn a clue as to how to open the door by quoting the lines "If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended", to which Flynn replied "That you have but slumber'd here, while these visions did appear", and immediately realised that the way to open the secret door was to pull on a copy of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", the romantic comedy by William Shakespeare. Behind the secret door is an elevator shaft which can only be accessed by two marines opening two locks similtaneously. When Flynn remarked that the double lock was the same as is used on bases with nuclear weapons, Judson verified this and said they copied it from the library.
