A brilliant researcher and anthropologist, Blair Sandburg is convinced
that Sentinels, people with hyperactive
senses still exist in the modern world. Determined to find and document a living sentinel for his disertation, he
has an extensive collection of material regarding the trials, tribulations and triumphs of sentinels. This research
becomes invaluable when he meets Jim Ellison, one of the few sentinels existing in modern society. His knowledge
and his innovative mind allow him to become Ellison's Guide, the person most necessary to a sentinel. A guide is the
person who keeps the sentinel from becoming lost in his/her senses, giving a focal point or baseline for the use of the
senses. In exchange for being able to gather information on Jim's senses for his diseration, Blair helps the detective
gain control over them. Or at least, that is how it starts.
