'Lockwood and Co' is set in a world where ghosts have become an epidemic. They are everywhere and their mere touch can kill a person.

Was Edmund Bickerstaff a Real Occultist?

Edmund Bickerstaff isn't a real occultist. He's an original character created by Jonathan Stroud for his fictional book series 'Lockwood and Co.,' which serves as the source material for the Netflix series. He was a doctor who became fascinated with the occult after death. He excavated graves from the cemetery and performed experiments on living people.

The author hasn't verified whether he based the character on a real occultist, but it's clear that he was inspired by occultist accounts. Crowley is known as the "worst man in the world."

Crowley was named after his father, Aleister, and was introduced to the occult through his studies. This is said to be the reason for his participation in the Golden Dawn's Hermetic Order, which includes members like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and W.B Yeats.

Crowley was a member of the Order of the Twelve Apostles, and he was a member of the Order of the Twelve Apostles. One of his followers died there, and his wife sued Crowley for allowing him, along with the others, to eat and drink unhealthy and deadly foods. In addition, seven people were killed in the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun, according to historian Mark Beynon.

Crowley is considered to be one of the most influential people in the world of the occult, which means that there is a possibility that Jonathan Stroud used certain aspects of his life and personality to create the character of Edmund Bickerstaff. So, even though Bickerstaff is fictional, it is clear that the author considered real occultists and integrated them into his fictional character.
