Monsignor Pulaski (Male, Distinguished, 50s) (Featured (May be in more than one episode)
Line 1: Oh, it’s hot, though not the way you imagine. The 1600s was the last time a..supernatural being was able to access the Akashic records. A poor family from Uxbridge, England made a deal a minor enchanted, Valitro, to answer a question using the records. In exchange, Valitro could have the first born female child from the next 15 generations. Valitro, a child rapist before he was stoned to death and joined the service of the Mornigstar, readily agreed. He astrally projected himself into the Library and was able to telepathically send the message to the patriarch of the family. Within minutes, Valitro began screaming. His eyes melted in his head and his flesh began to bubble and turn brown. On the other end, the patriarch’s head exploded in front of his surprised family. His death was instant. Valitro burned for centuries before Sheeva allowed him to go to the eternal, godless, death.

Kelsey (Female 18-20, Primary, one-episode)
Line #1: See, that’s what I am telling you. It’s this place–it’s making us all crazy. I didn’t do anything. Do I have any blood on me?
Line #2: I think this is a very sad place. People were abandoned here–often by their loved ones. What a horrible life of loneliness that must have been for the patients.
Jacob (Male 18-20 Primary, one-episode)
Line #1: …then, in 1917 the boilers blew. Because the road up the mountain was so icy all the fire department and folks from town could do is watch the flames against the dark sky and bright moon. Even with half of the Overbrook on fire, 57 patients still froze to death that night. Another four died in the fire along with two staff members. But the state rebuilt, upgraded the boilers and the place was here until they closed it for good in 1986.
Daniel (Male 18-20 Primary, one-episode)
Line #1: (MOCKING) ‘Why must you be such an ass, Danny?’ Why must you be such a soft touch, Kelsey. You’ve always tried to save the strays. Someone’s cat have a dozen kittens? Call Kelsey, she’ll take care of them. Who is the first one to volunteer to help out at the homeless shelter? Oh Kelsey will give up her weekend to help the bums. Little Jacob doesn’t have any friends, Kelsey will take care of him. What are you trying to prove Kelsey? Your dad left your mom because she was boffing the PE teacher. You’re not going to get him back by doing good deeds.
The Morningstar (Male, Sexy Deep Voice, Featured, Multiple Episodes)
Line #1: Poets and artists slice away their body parts to feel a fraction of the passion we share. But you’re flying solo on this ‘opportunity’.

Mother Superior (Female, 50s-60s, Featured)
