Wei somehow slips in unnoticed, has a private tête-à-tête with the powers that be, and abracadabra, deal done.

The first entry is “abracadabra,” which at one time was an ancient code used by Egyptian priests, and ends with “Zoroastrianism.”
magical formula, 1690s, from Latin (Q. Severus Sammonicus, 2c.), from Late Greek Abraxas, cabalistic or gnostic name for the supreme god, and thus a word of power. It was written out in a triangle shape and worn around the neck to ward off sickness, etc. Another magical word, from a mid-15c. writing, was ananizapta.
