Mary Henry

Name: Mary Henry
Category: Living Dead, Ghost, Victim
Age: Early 20s at the time of death
Origin: Lawrence, Kansas
Habitat: Salt Lake City, Utah
General Description: A strong-willed individual and a talented organist, Mary Henry died in a car racing accident, but continued on living in a mysterious manner, without even initially realizing that she was in fact dead. Being little more than a soulless reflection of a human being, Mary drifted in and out of objective reality for awhile, until the undead from the abandoned Saltair pavilion, led by the notorious The Man, caught up with her and relocated her to the world of the dead.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: None really. Occasionally - John Linden, the annoying neighbor
Sworn Enemies: The Man
Special Powers: Not being affected by caffeine
Weapons of Choice: None
Weaknesses: Being occasionally invisible to the living and at the same time not being able to detect sound waves often leaves her completely helpless.
Hobbies: Shopping... or at least attempting to shop. It’s hard to shop when sales associates don’t see you.
Pet Peeves: Seeing The Man's face everywhere
Best Lines:
1) I don't belong in the world.
2) Funny, the world is so different in the daylight, but in the dark, your fantasies get so far out of hand. But in the daylight everything falls back into place again. Let’s have no more nights.
3) Thank you for the coffee. It was unsanitary, but delicious.
Total Estimated Power Rating: 5
4 Intellect Points + 1 Base Physical Strength Points
Power Level: Low. Mary Henry is not dangerous to anyone.
Identification: When Mary Henry exists in the three-dimensional world she looks just like everyone else. However when she drifts into the realm of the dead she is rather easy to identify - if you see a woman franticly running around trying to talk to people that completely ignore her – it’s probably Mary Henry. The real question, in this case, is why are you able to see her when no other living being can...
How to Avoid: Mary Henry is a very private individual and usually keeps to herself, so avoiding her is usually not a problem.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: It doesn’t really matter what you do. You can’t help her. She belongs to the dead.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Mary Henry is already dead, so technically she cannot be killed. Her existence in the objective reality, however, can be stopped by forcing her to visit the abandoned Saltair pavilion and letting its ghoulish inhabitants claim her soulless shell of a human being. Considering the fact that she is inexplicably drawn to this place, this feat shouldn’t be hard to accomplish.

Meanwhile, laid back in Donaldo's Hideaway, I was thinking about Mary Henry all moist and muddy - and next with Sidney aka John Linden at her bedroom door, where suddenly she changes his mood real quick with a spooky shriek -- it made me laugh out loud. ("Just what I need! Get mixed up with a girl who is off her rocker!")
I love that Carnival of Souls, one of my favorite flicks of all time. Two thumbs up!!
