Fravia is a teacher of many things obscure: reverse engineering, searching, data mining, anonymity, stalking (the opposite of anonymity), klebing, advertisement reversing and ad-busting (i.e. getting rid of advertisements).

Fravia, speaks five languages and graduated as historian of the early middle ages. He works -since 20 years- as an expert in linguistic-related informatic matters. Active on the web since 1995 in the reverse engineering field, he later shifted his interests towards advanced web searching techniques and search engines' algorithms reversing. His sites (www.fravia.com, www.searchlores.org & www.searchlore.org) offer an in-depth approach to the many lore related to internet data mining.
