– For a price!
Brilliana Stetham is a delicious charlatan. She dresses the part of the elegant mystic, and woman of dark, dire learning: black dresses and bustles, top hat with funeral crépe, glasses, and some impressively scholastic reference books and tools. Brilliana works as a mystic. She accepts commissions to ‘sense presences’ in houses of the wealthy, whereupon she researches, presents her findings about the local ghosts, and performs appropriate ceremonies to placate the ghosts and ensure the safety of the residents of the house. It is all done with great thoroughness, in deadly seriousness…
… and it is all a magnificent scam.
She is managing it all perfectly well – until one day, a haunting she is investigating turns out to be real…
For Brill, it is the start of a radical new life: As a real solver of things supernatural. As a battler of monsters and remover of curses. She becomes a “Paranormal Effectuator”.
