Locke & Key Universe Rules Explained by Cast and Creators

Locke & Key Universe Rules Explained by Cast and Creators

The world operates under certain rules and regulations, there are certain things that are inert; call it whatever you want. We may have a hard time understanding the rules of our universe; since we do not have someone to explain stuff to us. But we do have people who will get the universe of Locke & Key explained.

The cast and creators of this Netflix show came together to tell us about the rules that govern the world of Locke & Key; they are pretty simple, to be honest, but a lot depends on them. Darby Stanchfield, Griffin Gluck, Hallea Jones, and Connor Jessup, along with them co-creators Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez await you with a rule book to understand the show.

The keys of Locke & Key explained

The magical keys whisper when they want to be found, so no matter how hard you are looking for them you will never find a key unless they desire it. When you hear an eerie whisper out of nowhere, chances are that you have found a magical key.

The chances are also very little, mainly because the keys choose the person who will find them. So you have to be twice as lucky to land on a magical key from the Locke & Key universe.

The keys want to be used as weapons, it is as simple as that, but the user of the key decides its intention. As long as you are not turning into a psychotic evil villain; everything is cool.

The Lockes are blessed with keys, or maybe cursed

Fortunately (or misfortunately) the Key House is founded on top of a gateway between two different dimensions; which are the world of humans and the world of demons. This is probably the reason why only the Lockes can hear or use the keys.

The Lockes also have the responsibility to protect the dimensions gateway which is situated inside the sea caves under Key House; and as long as they are protecting the gateway, they have the final power over the keys.

Adults and their inability to remember the magic

For some reason, the adults in the Locke & Key universe can not remember the magic. They might see it right in front of their eyes, they may even be a part of it for some time, but the second they move away from it; poof.

The demons of Locke & Key explained

While these creatures from the other dimension have the ability to spot our world, they can not just get in freely; the demons need to possess a human body in order to survive in our world. They need a host to stay alive.

But what if they do not find a host? The demons die and turn into this piece of metal called ‘whispering iron’. All the magical keys are made of this ‘whispering iron’.

Demons are of course powerful creatures, but they just can not take away the keys from the Lockes. A Locke must give away the key willingly; then and only then a demon can have it.

So these were some rules of the universe of Locke & Key explained; you can now go take a stroll in Matheson.

Locke and Key is currently streaming on Netflix; watch it before they are here with the third season.
