Gravedigger Cryptopher
#L2 in My Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
The grim specter of gravesite management was a common site on the family grounds,  showing up promptly to perform the task of interring various family members after they had passed (or sometimes nearly passed) into the great beyond. You’d seldom have encountered a more enigmatically foul figure around the family mansion, the servants cellar… oops I mean quarters, or the nearby town of Perilous Downs.  He was completely silent.  He could speak but was hiding something that he couldn’t let out of the body bag.  Only 2 people on the servant staff knew his secret.
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!
