In the Shadow of Paracelsus: Exploring the Mind of James Lynwood Prescott is a non-fiction exploration of the events leading up to the death of Lauren Westryn at the hands of James Lynwood Prescott. It was written by Garisson Weyland and distributed by the Penemue Publishing Group.

Neither Weyland nor the book itself appear in the webseries, however both are mentioned several times and play a significant role in Chase Quinn's backstory.


  • Chase mentions that Weyland's book is a contributing factor to Colleen's distrust of her (SA: Pilot)
  • Robin is lecturing his class on the book, and it's revealed that the opening narration is, in part, taken from the book. (SA: Vade Retro)
