Questions & Answers

Why did the Spook always keep Tom at an arms length? Is it possibly because he's lost so many apprentices that he no longer wants to be close to them?

Answer:

He has seen over one third of his apprentices die fighting the dark so that may partially be true. Additionally it helps maintain discipline by keeping his distance. That is why Tom finds it so hard to teach Jenny; they are too close to each other..
