Personal History

Penelope grew up as the oldest child of a small country town’s sexton, only daughter to a family of undertakers and mediums.

The house she called home stood in the back corner of an old cemetery; said cemetery was older than the rest of the town around it, and huge. Her family had been the watchers and keepers of the yard since the town was founded, and always paid respect to those buried in the far corners of the grounds.

While hunting down a particularly troublesome ghoul who stole the head of a new arrival, Penelope was led down through a hole in the ground that opened to a hidden, once-sealed crypt. The ghoul had escaped, but her curiosity drew her to explore further.

She came across a strange, bronze sarcophagus in the depths of the crypt. Prying it open with her shovel, she looked inside, and was awed by the strange new world behind the casket. The world of the Library.
