  • $\begingroup$ Based on 3), the current rot13(CERZVRE BS ABEGUJRFG GREEVGBEVRF) is rot13(OBO ZPYRBQ) who lives in rot13(LRYYBJXAVSR), but that doesn't fit 1) and 2). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Lypyrhythm, do the numbers in the rebus portion correspond with the numbers in the "answer these three questions" section? $\endgroup$ Jul 3, 2019 at 18:44

Partial answer

Hint 1

inverting the braille code not really like a mirror (dots will be blanks, blanks will be dots) gives us d e s (thx to M Oehm)

Hint 2

PA (Abbreviation of Pennsylvania) is in the tea

Hint 3

Phanerozoic, Proterozoic, Archean and Hadean are eons.

Hint 4

Canadian Maple Leaf -> Canada
Capitol City -> Ottawa, no, wait!


  1. Where does he/she live?

    Rebus 3:
    Pic 1: Maple leaf of Canada => Canada

    Pic 2: Hint 4 gives "Capitol City of Canada"

    Pic 3: Isaac Newton -> Newton

    Pic 4: Eons => Newton - eon = NWT (North-West-Territories)

    And the capitol city of the North-West-Territories of Canada is yellowknife

  2. What is his/her name?

    Rebus 1:
    Pic 1: maybe a "wheel hub" or "hub" or "nave", first thought was "mount" but as this is now the name...

    Pic 2: desert

    Pic 3: d e s (Hint 1)

    Pic 4: "wood" or "logs" or "pile"

    gives ... Ill Pick Hub + Desert - des + Wood = Hubert Wood

  3. What is his/her job?

    Rebus 2:
    PA in Tea => Paintee, a female painter

    $\begingroup$ Note how the first hint specifically says that the mirror "inverts" (not reflects) the code. Not that I know how a mirror could do that, but the set of letters you get will be useful for making a sensible name. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Do the numbers in the rebus correspond with the numbers of "Answer the following three questions"? If so, you're answers make sense but they're applied to the wrong questions. I asked OP above ^ $\endgroup$ Jul 3, 2019 at 18:40
  • $\begingroup$ Good job, I accepted your answer. Also, the solution to rebus 2) is supposed to be “painter“, not “paintee.” $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Where do you get the -er from, @Lypyrhythm? I can see the PA in TEA but not in TER.... $\endgroup$

Very partial answer:

1) bearing/wheel hub (Bering ?) + desert - braille? (meaningless) + firewood

2) Patty (Patricia, possibly Patrick) : PA (Abbr. of Pennsylvania) + tea

3) Canadian maple leaf
-> government?
-> Isaac Newton - Cambrian? (Newton taught at Cambridge?)
