IAR -noun


Independent Anomalous Researcher(s), or IAR(s), is an individual who studies anomalies either on their own or in a small group. An IAR loses this title if they join any major Anomalous Organization, most IAR's end up taking this path. An individual than leaves a major Anomalous Organization, and researches anomalies on their own is also considered an IAR, however this is a very rare occurrence.

Because of their independent status IAR's do not follow conventions set up by any Anomalous Organizations in their documentation or research methods.

IAR's tend to have lower budgets than researchers in major Anomalous Organizations, however this doesn't limit their ability to research and learn about anomalies. Most IAR's that don't join any major Anomalous Organization tend to only research one anomaly.

The following is a list of IAR's and the documents that they made about the anomaly they were reasarching

IAR Example 2

Name: Cole Alden
Age: 42
Employment: farmer

Cole researched a saucer shaped entity that had the powers of teleportation, mindreading, and telekinesis. His research was focused on finding a way to help the anomaly recover from its injuries.
