The Study is a set of private worlds that Arrell has been putting people into; both as a means of prolonging their lives and giving them additional time to think of a solution to the Heat and the Dark and as a way of getting rid of people who he feels are endangering the world or hindering his goals.
Described alternatively as a "solipsist heaven" or an "eternity prison", a person who is in the Study is in an alternate version of the world as created by themselves; whether identical to the world which they have left, or one which they can remake based upon their own desires.
Arrell's list of people to put into the Study Edit
- Chancellor Lutz
- Isaac Adelton
- Elgash Or
- Obelday Adelbury

- ↑ After Elgash used pattern magic to counteract Arrell's spell, he instead killed Elgash.
- ↑ Obelday was killed by Ephrim and Hadrian before Arrell could put him away.
- ↑ Either due to his broken staff or a general lack of concern for Sol, Arrell never showed and Sol was executed.
- ↑ Victoria, Fero and Throndir fought Arrell off, breaking his staff and forcing him to retreat without whisking her away.
