Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Everyone likes antiques. Get enough and your house can look like a museum. Just make sure they've all been tested for curses and evil and all the other stuff this guy sells.

History: This mysterious proprietor has a penchant for selling the oddest of ancient wares at his shop called "Temptations Limited". And all of them have a catch. The notable ones that get sold include an old mirror containing the spirit of a murderer, a Distinguished Service Order medal capable of instilling voodoo, a snuff box containing a possessive elemental, and an ornate door that leads to a dimensional prison for the soul lorded over by a sinister occultist named Sinclair. Of course, a recurring theme is that all the people who buy them exploit loopholes behind his back for reduced prices, so who's to blame here, really?

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: The murderer remains in the mirror convincing people to kill themselves, the voodoo claims the life of its buyer, the elemental possesses its buyer's wife to kill him, but the door is destroyed alongside the occultist. The last one concludes righteously due to its buyer paying honestly. Of course, in between these stories, a sleazy caser tries to kill the proprietor after failing to rob him, but he fails to even phase him with bullets, and is felled by an iron maiden. The proprietor continues to sell his wares and punish the greedy.

Powers/Abilities: Immortality.

Weakness: Unknown.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Fate is this guy's best friend, so if you're a greedy bastard trying to play him for a fool, you will pay dearly, as the cursed antiques you buy will test your fortitude and will to survive. Those who actually have a shed of dignity stand a greater chance of living.

Trivia: -This film is also known as "The Creatures", "Tales From Beyond the Grave", and "Tales From the Beyond".

-There are actually many accounts of antiques being haunted. Whether it's messing with dreams and/or emotions, some people tend to pin the blame on old constructs to explain strange phenomena.
