Flynn Carsen

Flynn had been the sole Librarian since 2004. He's survived longer than any other Librarian by being adept at thinking on his feet and getting himself out of dangerous situations. Academically brilliant, but socially awkward, he doesn't work well with others, with the exception of Judson and Charlene.

  • Quotes
    • "You're not worth my time! None of you are worth my time. When I think of all the sacrifice, all the years, the magic I know, I could be a God!" - 1x05
    • "Unrestrained magic can be dangerous. I mean, all it really takes is one lunatic, one Pol Pot, one Nero, one apple-wielding, overworked, unappreciative, but genuinely kind of a nice guy who has access to that kind of power to make it all go away. And it can all go away, unless... and this is really the takeaway here... we have a library. And that is why we need a librarian, right? To protect us. To protect us all." - 1x05
