Teaser: Leonard Warren-Hopkins, upon introducing himself to a stranger, scarcely cares about their name and circumstantial compliments. But when he shakes hand with those who stand before him, first he notices their eyes, then their skin. He inspects them just like the ancient soothsayers searched the stars. What Leonard senses are the fibrous muscles underneath the epidermis, stretching and relaxing at the hand's grip. He feels the pulse and envisages how blood vessels pump life into that hand. In his mind he weaves the tangle of nerves connecting the fingers to the palm. Like an architect, Leonard traces the scaffolding of bones with his eyes. Only then does his attention rest on the person's name. He has a scientific passion out of the ordinary, as well as an innate and brilliant intelligence, and that rare gift that is the pernicious habit of never taking anything for granted nor leaving anything untried. An enthusiastic pioneer of new techniques, for him medical art ought to have no boundaries that morality or even God are used to impose. Where does the soul hide? Where does the principle of pain lie? These, and many other questions, crowd together like clouds around the sun of his intellect, while he puts on his white coat - that others take pains making pristine again, after his experiments - absorbed in sectioning bodies with the same care he devotes to leafing through ancient books. Yet the answer he dredges up is always the same: every discovery is never innocent.

Relations: He often and animatedly argues with Miss Margaret Alice Murray. Miriam Alexandrine de Rothschild surprised him amiably chatting with him about modern medicine, odd knowledge for a woman. He visited William Monck and is very interested in the ailments he suffers from. He despises Arthur Conan Doyle's literary ambitions. He has often asked for Fanny Andrews' services for his own experiments.
Leonard met Katharine Douglas Scott while examining her father, who is seriously ill: he remembers her as a rich and refined noblewoman.
