Dr. Oracle, the vaudevillian purveyor of thoughts and showmanship.
After being struck off for 'miss-use of amputation methods' the good Doctor re-marketed himself as the top billed act in a travelling oddity show. The crowds gathered en masse to watch his spectacular show thwart with colours, danger and a healthy dose of optimism.
But it was not the daring caped swashbucklers, nor the Skeletal Dance Troop that the crowds were excited about, it was the great man himself.
The grand finale of trance like predictions, anecdotes and half-priced prescriptions for his handmade "Life Elixir" where enough to regularly start stampedes and one or two top hats have been lost amidst the ruckus.
