Dr. Isabel “Izzy” Soto caught the history bug as a little girl. Every night, her grandfather told her about his adventures exploring ancient ruins in South America. He believed lost cultures teach us a great deal about history.
Izzy’s love of cultures followed her to college. She studied history and anthropology. On a research trip to Thailand, she discovered an ancient stone with mysterious energy. Izzy took the stone to Super Scientist Max Axiom who determined that the stone’s energy cuts across space and time.
Harnessing the power of the stone, he built a device called the WISP. It opens windows to any place and any time. Izzy now travels through time to see history unfold before her eyes.

Super Scientist Max Axiom created the W.I.S.P. at Axiom Laboratories in Seattle, Washington. He learned that its energy opens holes in space and time. Max invented the W.I.S.P. to hold the stone and focus its energy into portals Isabel could travel through.
- The stone’s energy inside the W.I.S.P. can be unstable, so the portal sometimes appears in unexpected places. Izzy needs to be ready for whatever she finds on the other side of the portal.
- Izzy needs to be very careful when she goes back in time. She can’t change events in history because it could have damaging effects on the present.
