"To know the weather is to know the Edge."

Archemax was an academic and philosopher in early Sanctaphrax, as well as a famous Most High Academe. He was the author of The Thousand Luminescent Aphorisms of Archemax. In his day, his views were extremely controversial, and his philosophical musings on the nature of light were considered to be heretical. However, history vindicated him as one of the greatest High Academes to ever preside over Sanctaphrax. During the Third Age of Flight, a descenders' phraxship was named the Archemax in his honor.
