No one will be surprised to know that professor Langdon has an eidetic memory, with a brilliant problem-solving mind. He’s also a great swimmer, a brilliant artist, and the writer of six books.

Robert Langdon is written by Dan Brown “the man he wishes he could be,” but was also inspired by American writer Joseph Campbell. He is described as looking like “Harrison Ford in Harris tweed.” He is often wearing his Mickey Mouse watch, a gift from his parents on his tenth birthday.

Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol was adapted as a TV Show–on the streaming service Peacock–starring Ashley Zukerman as Robert Langdon.

The Giver is the alias of the Receiver of Memory, a man who has to bear the memories of the past the community turned away from. Described as an aging Elder, he is one of the most important figures in this society, due to his responsibilities, but holds almost no power.
