Backstory & Cameos
An old dollmaker was once a father to a striking young lady. She was fair of skin and presented a face full of delicate features. Her father was proud of her looks, but unfortunately, the small pox didn’t seem to care much for that. What was once beautiful pale skin, was now riddled with disgusting pox, bleeding and infected from her dirty nails. The daughter soon succumb to the infection, but not before ripping out her own hair in crazed fits of pain that shattered her fragile, egg-shell mind.
Grief stricken, her father took the body into his workshop to replace every imperfection the sickness had caused. He turned his daughter into the doll of a girl she once was. However, one thing was missing – life itself. He prayed, and prayed, and prayed, and a man in black who smelled of sulfur answered his desperate calls. The man leaned down and spoke life back into the porcelain surface. The dollmaker was elated, but unknown to him, t’was not his daughter that took that shell. What gave it away was the single phrase it giggled. “I’m a real girl now.”
The dollmaker was never seen whole again.
