A model of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

A loop is an occurrence which only a ymbryne (female) can conduct, where a past date exists and repeats over and over, though syndrigasts experience it differently. Only Peculiars can pass through it except in Hollow City where a hollowgast was in a loop.

Loops suspends the aging of their occupants, although they do not prevent it. Should a peculiar exit their loop into the present and remain there for two to three days, they will age forward however many years they have spent inside the loop, which, depending on how long that is, usually results in death. If the ymbryne, who created the loop is not there to reset it, the loop closes.

Some loops don't allow outsiders and have one type of peculiar living together. 


There are four types of loops: workable loops, closed loops, punishment loops, and pocket loops.

Partitionment of ability is discouraged under the ymbyrnic codes, because it can promote clannish thinking and unnecessary conflict. It is expressly forbidden to have closed loops, in which one type of peculiar is allowed to live and all others are banned.
