A Recuerdo Compass is the only means by which a powerful memory extraction spell, made possible through the use of a Recuerdo Coil, can be removed.
The Recuerdo Compass was lost off the shore of Madagascar when the ship, the Esme Fierce, ran aground. It was salvaged by Engelram, a wealthy Fae known as "The Collector" who dealt in rare and priceless Fae memorabilia.
The compass must be shattered and its needle aligned to true North for the memory spell to be broken and memories restored to those who were hexed.
Recuerdo is Spanish language for the word "memory" (noun) or verbal expression "I remember".
