John Dee was the great spy-magician of the Elizabethan era. He was a master of espionage, and he founded the British secret service. He used the bizarre cryptographic Enochian language in experiments to brainwash agents through communication with angels and demons, and he developed an occult scrying ritual. His personal code number was 007. He entrusted the five secret names of the Points of the Star to the Service. At the time of founding the Service, he wrote of a mythical arch-nemesis known as "Chroronzon", a demon depicted in occult lore as a gigantic eye. (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street)

He brokered the first contract between man and Fay, and he popularised the scrying-stone. Among his descendants was Sherlock Holmes. (PROSE: A Broodmare for Gloriana)
