He allowed himself to be captured in the Library of Alexandria and turned into a Curator. He left a message which allowed his son Alcatraz Smedry to free him. Before he was freed, he gathered knowledge about the Incarna from the library. Upon returning to the Free Kingdoms, he announced his intention to develop a way to give everyone Talents using the knowledge he gained during his imprisonment.

After this, he went to the Highbrary to read its Forgotten Language books. He was eventually captured by Biblioden and sacrificed on the altar of outdated encyclopedias.

Attica has the ability to lose things. Though he is never seen using his Talent, his Talent can be used to hide things, as is seen by is wife, Shasta Smedry, who used the Talent to keep a book she stole from the Royal Archives (not a library) from being repossessed even after Alcatraz and his friends escape back to the Free Kingdoms. Attica is also an Oculator and has access to and can use the different Oculator's Lenses. Other than his magical abilities, Attica is a renowned scholar and researcher in the Free Kingdoms. His achievements include discovering how Transporter's Glass works and devising a method for collecting the Sands of Rashid. He can also be clever, as he found a loophole in the rules of the Library of Alexandria, which allowed Alcatraz to free him from the library.
