The Story So FarEdit

Charlie Kane promised the people of Arkham a safer future. He made a lot of promises-- lower taxes, better schools, less crime. It was part of the job, after all. He said what he had to say to get elected, and then he set about doing what he could to help people. Although he had to do things he wasn't proud of, Charlie always worked for the greater good. The people came first.

So when Charlie Kane started hearing the reports, he put the people first. Of course, he couldn't tell anyone-- couldn't reveal what he had pieced together, reports from various parts of the city government that painted a macabre portrait of Arkham's future. For one, who'd believe him? For another, how would widespread panic serve the public good?

Still, Charlie has always had connections in town. So he gathered up his reports and paid a visit to Professor Grant at Miskatonic University.

The fact that he now stands before Professor Grant's mutilated corpse in Professor Grant's blood-stained office, does not fill Chalie Kane with confidence.[1]

Charlie Kane's campaign was founded by casting him as a man who took on the most important issues facing Arkham. Between his legion of political allies and his healthy amount of personal funds, he felt uniquely qualified to handle anything being an elected official brought his way. Monsters, cults, and strange rituals were the farthest thing from his mind, but in order to keep Arkham safe–and his constituents alive and voting–he knows the most important issue is defeating the supernatural forces at work in his city.[2]
