It seems likely that no living man has ever known more about ghosts than

Inspector Jacob Slade of Wight Lane. Before Slade joined the force, it was common

practice to continue hunting for wizard criminals as long as they were alive. Slade

went further, hauling even the dead into court to face trial. It had long been believed

that it was impossible to bind or fetter a ghost, but enchanted handcuffs of his own

invention -- 'Slade's Bracelets' -- proved otherwise. Though the practice of trying

ghosts was abolished in 1930, Slade's tireless efforts impressed many in the Spectral

Realm, and Slade's bureau, known as Wight Lane, became the first

Ghost Division of the Wizard Police Department.
