“An Ymbryne’s main skill is the manipulation of time. We choose a safe place, a safe day and create a loop.
A loop is the last twenty-four hours, rest the loop and the day is yours
to live in again. Reset it daily, and you can stay there forever,
entirely safe from the outside world. And that’s why we Ymbrynes are charged with the care of the young.
Each Ymbryne commits herself to the creation and upkeep of a place like this. A Home for Peculiar Children.”
