Rachel Jennings was raised a wealthy orphan and grew up to become the first wife of werewolf, Chris Jennings. One evening, Chris transformed into his wolf state and savagely murdered her, tearing her throat out.
A few years later in 1910, Rachel’s godfather, Joseph Sharon, arrived at the Jennings home at Cranshaw House. He discovered that Chris had taken a new bride named Paula and warned her about her husband’s violent tendencies. Although there was no evidence linking Chris to Rachel’s death, Sharon was convinced that he had murdered her.
