Dr. Derwood Isaiah Ghinton (aka Jessie Creselious)
Founder and Owner of The Steampunk Consortium as well as The Muncie Indiana Steampunk Society. Chief Magistrate of the Steampunk Consortium. Doctor of Metaphysical Sciences, Spiritualism Enthusiast, Steampunk Ambassador. Dr. Ghinton has a lifetime of fascination with all things which "go bump in the night", of the ghostly kind, not the other. His fascination has led him into many dark corners, and given him more questions than answers to the source of those unscrupulous creaks and shrieks often associated with the seance or the haunting of one's abode or business. His scientific pursuits have opened his mind to entertain and speculate upon the stories of others. He is ever seeking to learn more of the adventures and experiences of his fellow man, and to seek out and investigate those odd occurrences to discover whatever may exist behind the curtain. He is able and willing (with, or often without prompting) to graciously share his opinions and observations on the subjects of “Life Beyond The Flesh”, “The Transition”, “Energy— Origin & Destination”, “What is Spirit?” and many others in a variety of venues and circumstances.

Miss Alana Binx
Miss Alana Binx (aka Lissa Grantham) (but everyone just calls me Binx).
I’m a adventurer and world explorer. I have used all forms of transportation for my travels including aviation, train, ship, and of course time. I love to find new places to explore like far away castle ruins, old abandoned buildings, and all forms of the wild ( I especially love the deep dark forests) I like to explore the landscape as they are currently, then use my Time Compass to go back and see the places I find in all there former glory.
I am always up for a new adventure.
Mr. Hugo Hyde
Mr Hugo Hyde (aka Dave Lenz)
A gentle caretake of the Ebony Mansion, his home and place of employ. Directed by Bishop Twilight, who is a mysterious and aloof dispenser of instruction into Mr. Hydes world. Mr. Hyde is a third generation employee of the Bishop. Paying off a long standing debt which is not discussed in the public eye. Ebony Manor is a spectral location found between realms. Not in the land of the physical and yet not in the aspect of the metaphysical. It is designed to house, and contain those beings and creatures which do not belong in the world of the Mundane. It is not a prison, but a refuge from those who would cause harm to the mysterious beings often brought to the manor for safe keeping. Mr Hyde is the caretaker of these entities. Gentle by nature and understanding. His tasks often involve lengthy travel outside of the manor in search of new “residents” and his commission is to return those he comes into contact with back to the manor. Never underestimate Mr Hydes point of observation, he may seem like a simple being, but his insight and strengths are many. He keeps with him 3 keys. Each on for a different task. One will open a dimensional vortex leading back to the Manor. One will open a vortex to safely carry whom ever passes through back to the last place of safety. And the final key is unknown and comes with the warning to never use, unless told explicitly to do so. Mr Hyde also is a collector of unique equipment. He often carries a small vial of what appears to be sand, and yet upon agitation of the vial, it glows brightly. He has come by this artifact by collection what he refers to as “fairy dust” from key members of the Manor Residents.
Ms Abigail Watson
Ms Abigail Grace Watson (aka Wanda Delaney) My name is Abigail Grace Watson. I was born with a curious and questioning mind...what some might refer to as nosy...but to each his own. I am often found off to myself, studying the minute details of a scene. I am deadly with a pistol and mine is never far from my side (my left side, to be exact - which often throws off the villains that would accost me - much to my infinite amusement). Always being fond of science, I keep at ready an arsenal of elixirs, herbs, tinctures and poultices that are helpful in most situations. My journal is my constant companion and I keep a thorough record of everything that I encounter. I am currently a detective/adventurer who joined S.T.E.A.M. (the Society of Time Travelers, Explorers, Adventurers and Mystics) in their quest to rid the world of those beasties that some dare not even whisper about.
