Nicolas Flamel - He's real!! "The essence of his reputation are claims that he succeeded at the two magical goals of alchemy: that he made the Philosopher's Stone, which turns dung into gold and ordinary stones into precious gems, and that he and his wife Perenelle achieved immortality through the "Elixir of Life"."
