A man inherits his distant uncles' expansive property in the remote countryside and discovers a host of ancient grimoires in the study and slaughtered livestock in the basement, indicating that he was practicing some kind of black magic. After perusal of some of the books, the man unwittingly utters a phrase from one, condemning his uncle's soul to the monsters from which he had thought himself protected.
- William, a young man who has recently come into possession of his eccentric uncles estate.
- Absalom Mueller, William's deceased uncle.
- Amongst the tomes included in Absalom Mueller's library were the Book of Iod and the R'lyeh Text.
