This plot is presented in chronological order.. During the American Revolution, a group of Rebels, hiding beneath the future Keyhouse, discover a portal to another dimension, the Plains of Leng filled with demons which can mesmerize and possess any who see or touch them. However, when the demons attempt to enter the real world, they collapse into lumps of "whispering iron", which young Benjamin Locke forges into a variety of magical keys, including the Omega Key, which seals the entrance to the dimension...A key is a device that is used to operate a lock.. A typical key is a small piece of metal consisting of 2 parts: the blade, which slides into the keyway of the lock and distinguishes between different keys, and the bow, which is left protruding so that torque can be applied by the user. A key is usually intended to operate one specific lock or a small number of locks that are keyed alike, so each lock requires a unique key. The key serves as a security token for access to the locked area; only persons having the correct key can open the lock and gain access...

Enzymes are large biological molecules responsible for the thousands of metabolic processes that sustain life.. They are highly selective catalysts, greatly accelerating both the rate and specificity of metabolic reactions, from the digestion of food to the synthesis of DNA..In 1958, Daniel Koshland suggested a modification to the lock and key model: since enzymes are rather flexible structures, the active site is continuously reshaped by interactions with the substrate as the substrate interacts with the enzyme..Koshland is 1 of 3 children born to a Jewish family, the son of Daniel E. Koshland, Sr. and Eleanor Haas, daughter of the Haas family patriarch Abraham Haas..Koshland's private fortune, derived from Levi Strauss, put him on lists of America's wealthiest men. However, he choose not to tap in to the fortune and instead went to school to learn a different trade...

A lock is a mechanical or electronic fastening device that is released by a physical object (such as a key, keycard, fingerprint, RFID card, security token Etc..), by supplying secret information (such as a keycode or password), or by a combination thereof..The earliest known lock and key device was discovered in the ruins of Nineveh, the capital of ancient Assyria.. Locks such as this were later developed into the Egyptian wooden pin lock, which consisted of a bolt, door fixture, and key.. When the key was inserted, pins within the fixture were lifted out of drilled holes within the bolt, allowing it to move. When the key was removed, the pins fell part-way into the bolt, preventing movement..The lever tumbler lock was greatly improved by Jeremiah Chubb in 1818.. A burglary in Portsmouth Dockyard prompted the British Government to announce a competition to produce a lock that could be opened only with its own key.. Chubb developed the Chubb detector lock, which incorporated an integral security feature that could frustrate unauthorised access attempts and would indicate to the lock's owner if it had been interfered with.. Chubb was awarded £100 after a trained lock-picker failed to break the lock after 3 months..In 1820, Jeremiah joined his brother Charles in starting their own lock company, Chubb..The modern Yale lock is essentially a more developed version of the Egyptian lock...
