FictionEdit

The Story So FarEdit

As a young girl, Gloria was haunted by terrible visions. After years of visiting doctors and some therapy, she learned to control her visions somewhat by writing stories. Her weird and disturbing fiction somehow spoke to the public in these troubled times, and has made her a bestselling writer.

This evening, while leaving a book signing she's attending in Arkham, she was knocked to the ground by the most powerful vision she's ever experienced. Gloria saw the sky tear open, and a huge and monstrous form pour out of the very air itself, wreaking untold havoc and killing thousands. As she sat on the ground with her arms wrapped around herself, Gloria knew, somehow, that this vision was real, and that it would come to pass unless she did something about it.

Now, she finds herself in a run-down diner, sipping coffee and trying to decide what to do.[1]

THE TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTIONEdit

Ever since she was a young girl, Gloria has been plagued by visions of monsters dwelling in strange, nightmarish places. She eventually learned to overcome the terror that accompanied these visions by writing them into stories. As the years went by, her stories launched her into a successful career as an author, but the more she wrote, the more extreme the visions became. She has come to believe that the images she sees are not her imagination, but rather clairvoyant insight into the world of the supernatural. She has resolved to use this insight to investigate the realm of the supernatural and exorcise these nightmares from the world as well as her subconscious.[2][3]

The Investigators of Arkham HorrorEdit

Gloria is a widowed mother to two children, one living in Boston and one in Philadelphia. Her late husband's name was Benjamin. She often seeks solace for her troubles at Velma's Restaurant.[4]
