Tobin's Spirit Guide was a book owned by Rupert Giles and used for researches on the supernatural.[1][2]


The book included a wood engraving of the Glove of Myhnegon by Father Theodore of Wolsham. Giles used the illustration to identify the weapon in 1998, reading the book in his apartment with Gwendolyn Post.[1]

In 2001, Alexander Harris read the book in the Magic Box during his research on what could have frozen a security guard and robed the Illuminata diamond. He pointed pages of the book when describing that demons were starting to look alike: "Reptiles. Reptiles with horns. Reptiles with gills." His research was unsuccessful,[2] as the crime had been committed by humans.[3]
