Butler Peeves
#F3 in my Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
The eternally irritated last known McMorbidly family butler. There wasn’t a thing on this earth that didn’t irritate him. He was an absolute master of silent condescension and disdain. You’d never hear him utter a word of dissent in front of the family but you’d swear you heard muffled grumbling and raging from the servants quarters every night... something like “That bloody (muffled swear) Squire!! All he does is drink that (muffled swear) awful Squinty’s Bitter Black coffee. His breath smells of 10 year old dead Eels!!!”. What he didn’t yell about is the puffer fish poison he would slip in Squire Drummel’s coffee in tiny little increments unwittingly leading to said horrendous halitosis. The poison wasn’t strong enough to kill Squire Drummel.

The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
