Biographies and necrographies
Ah, there you are! We have been looking for you.
Here, you will be guided to pages detailing the former lives (some mortals call this “backstories”) of some of the most notable Happy Haunts of the Haunted Mansion.
Please, choose your character and leave this room without lagging behind. We'd hate to loose you… so soon.

Out of character presentation:
Every character page is divided in two parts.
Who is [character name]? provides a description of the ghoul
as he can currently be seen, and tells you of his place in the Haunted
Mansion as it is today. The informations in this part are generally reliable
Haunt's History is the backstory we have assigned the character.
In some cases, it might include information either completely canon or
based on canon/semi-canon materials, but it is not, as a rule,
official, and not canon to anything but the Ghost Library stories. It also
often includes bits of other fan fictions.
This section is a thematic cousin of the famous Ghost Gallery,
another, more famous attempt at backstorying the Mansion characters. We
decided to create this page because, although an interesting first step,
the Ghost Library is tonally very dissonant of the light-hearted,
humoristical ride. A little drama with the Brides is fine,
but they really overdo it! So all of the stories here
will include at least a little bit of comedy.
The names and backstories we have assigned the characters
can be from four distinct sources: a fair share is original, of
course. Some names and ideas come from the aforementioned
Ghost Gallery. Others are based on canon (the ride) or semi-canon
(the comics, the Ghost Post) material. And finally,
some details and names come from tumblr
blogs and/or DeviantArt fanfics.
The pictures can either be concept-art, photos,
or fan-art gleaned around the web. If you see a picture
here which you believe belongs to you, and would
like to see it removed (or you to be credited),
do contact us here.
