CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: Barl Shumpeter

Dressing up as a ghoul to keep a local legend alive is all well and good.

At least, until it attracts the attention of the world’s most deadly and successful monster hunter. When Barl Shumpeter arrives in Windydown Vale and proclaims that the Ghoul is his next bounty, Copper Inskeep will have to worry about protecting more than just his little town’s secret…

Barl Shumpeter, and all this week’s character art reveals, would not be possible without the talents of Larissa Brown Marantz (https://larissamarantz.com/).

CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: The Mayors


Among the more peculiar quirks of Windydown Vale is its mayor. Or, rather, its mayors…there are three of them, you see, each one stranger than the last. Of course, they do share a trait or two: They’re old. They like their wine and their tea and their gossip. They adore Copper Inskeep.

And they know he’s the Ghoul of Windydown Vale.

CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: Annabelle

Unconscious, bleeding, and carried by a terrified horse, Annabelle arrives in Windydown Vale as more than just a mystery. She’s a threat to everything Copper Inskeep has tried so hard to hide. She claims she and her father were attacked by the Ghoul, you see. She barely escaped, hurtling through the swamps and briars. Her father? Not so lucky. It’s a tragic story for certain, and one that sits all kinds of wrong with Copper. After all, he IS the Ghoul, and he’s never seen this girl before…

Meet Liza Smith. If you’re going to hide Windydown Vale’s biggest and darkest secret, you’re going to want her on your side.
