Welcome to the world of Penny Dreadful. You begin in London (where else?) on September 22, 1891. Shortly, an esteemed and wealthy explorer by the name of Malcolm Murray and a lady named Vanessa Ives will enlist the help of an American marksman named Chandler and a young doctor named Frankenstein to aid in the rescue of Malcolm s daughter Mina. If you can t work out who or what kidnapped Mina at this point you re really not trying. When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone. Two brothers fell together and they do not get along. One fell to Hell to feed upon the souls of the dead and one to Earth to feed upon the blood of the living. Both of them have pieces on the board and are considering their next move. The prize? Destruction, mastery and a certain Miss Ives. Portents, religion, hell and blood coincide with a new force for the first time - science. Estranged friends Drs Frankenstein and Jekyll work in separate labs in hopes to improve or transcend the human condition but each are on a course to create monsters of their own. The shadows grow deeper in the back alleys, mutilated corpses are not quite as rare a thing as they were and you would do well not to travel at night. You have 1000 CP

Your history, memories and place in the world. As a child you had a strange fascination with dead things and the occult and would hear the occasional whisper suggesting you do things that got you into trouble. You grew up wealthy but circumstances and your character were such that you ended up leaving home with little more than a deck of tarot cards in your possession and ended up living with a wise woman to learn her trade. There is darkness in you still to contend with and that interest has led you to London where you currently live quite comfortably off the inheritance you received following your parents passing. The cards have shown you that whatever is about to happen is going to happen here and it s going to be big. Whether you re a native Brit, from the United States or from the colonies your life so far has been difficult and violent. You have seen far more than your fair share of death and likely doled out much of what you ve seen. Whether as a former soldier, scout, criminal, or bodyguard you have learned how to shoot to earn your place in the world and have had to do it well to survive for as long as you have. Now you find yourself in London with a room above a pub paid up for the month. You have a little spending money but will need to look for work soon or risk going hungry, it is fortunate then that there is always work going for a person of your talents. You were a brilliant young junior surgeon, with good prospects and single - minded in your efforts to perfect your skills in the field. As time passed, your peers and teachers began to seem slightly disturbed by the extent of your ambition when it came to the prolonging of life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
