Welcome to day five of the AtoZChallenge and my theme of Fictional Phantoms. I hope everyone is still raring to go. Today I have a ghost who looks horrifying, but whose nature is kindly.
Enola Sciotti (Crimson Peak)Tom Hiddleston) is the brilliant Crimson Peak (Guillermo del Toro).
Enola Sciotti was Italian by birth, from Milan, and fell for Sir Thomas when he visited there seeking funding for his red clay extracting machine.
She, like Thomas' previous two wives, was poisoned by Lucille, Thomas' sister, while he watched on. Unlike his other wives she realised what was going on an managed to prolong her life by saying she could keep Lucille and Thomas' incestuous child alive by nursing it.
She failed and then she also died. She haunts Allerdale Hall, still holding the baby she nursed, trying to show Edith, Thomas' fourth wife, the truth to help save her from the same fate she suffered.
She is a sad figure, her body red from the clays under the crumbling ruin of Allerdale Hall, known locally as Crimson Peak.
Could you overcome fear to listen to a ghost's warnings, or would you be too frightened to stay long enough to hear what they were?
