Ok! So here we Go!
Hansel and Gretel had once been normal children. Enjoying their simple life. When father remarried and evil selfish woman. Their new step mother had thought she came up with the most devious plot to rid herself finally of the children.
One day after being berated by the step mother, father took Hansel and Gretel out to the woods for a walk. Gretel had overheard her evil stepmother the previous day. She had planned a little surprise for her Father and Step Mother.
Gretel had taken Hansel to the woods and met with the old Witch who lived in the candy cottage. She made a bargain with her. A plump juicy step mother and a tired old man if she would change them to vampires. The old witch loved a good evil plan. She took them up on the offer.
The children were quiet and most well behaved. They knew they had nothing to fear for Father had a surprise coming when he tried to leave them behind in the forest. Stepmothers surprise was coming later when Hansel and Gretel returned home that evening not with father but with the old Witch instead....

Daphne Skeleton masked Masquerade Doll
Daphne felt something amiss. Her senses were tingling as she walked out the door. Down the hall she could hear her neighbors fighting and the old cat screeched as it ran across her path. Something compelled her to leave. She walked to the end of the street and saw a man selling masks. She quickly picked a beaded skull and put it on, it felt right; how she could not tell. Her troubles and cares appeared to vanish the moment its cold surface touched her skin.
As she rounded the corner a powerful blast was heard and screams from the distance....She did not look back and did not remove the mask...She mused to herself that possibly the gas was left on and maybe the old cat had knocked over her oil lamp. Those neighbors were really getting on her nerves ;)

Rachel Skeleton masked doll
Rachel was thought to be a wonderful person. She was known to help her neighbors and volunteered at the Hospital.
She was well loved by all.
Rachel had an unknown motive for volunteering and helping out neighbors, she was intrigued by death. Rachel would make her way to help anyone in the hospital that was thought to be short on time. She befriended her neighbors and suddenly they became ill and needed her help even more. Death was a comfort to Rachel a friendly helping hand she would extend to many over the course of her existence.

The Twins Mab and Marisol
The Twins were so shy and could not bear to leave their home. Marisol did all the talking and Mab had not spoke a word in years. Some wondered if she spoke at all. Marisol was the more dominant twin. She lead and decided what activities they would enjoy for the day. But what people didn't know was that Mab was actually leading Marisol. She whispered in her ear every step she should take. She did this without speaking a word. Marisol thought she may be going mad. But Mab was secretly amused.
