Hospitals, by their very nature, are places where tragic things sometimes happen. But, in a mystery the circle unraveled, OHSU had a particularly dark spot that it had gone to great lengths to hide. As it turns out, a particularly crazed doctor in the mid 30’s resorted to all sorts of torture in the name of science, and by the time his work was ended, he had laid the painful groundwork for two tortured souls. When a young academic, Caleb Hornfellow , was tasked with sweeping it under the rug, the fate of those souls was cemented in time.
And for decades, they slumbered, hidden away in the basement of a seldom used building.
But when construction, and the failings of a young intern stirred the cauldron of pain, the two ghosts rose from their slumber and sought justice once again.
Fortunately, one of the first things they stumbled across was the circle of mages. Driven by curiosity, and later by concern, the group unraveled the mystery behind these two specters. Armed with information, they found a way to free both ghosts from their worldly anchors and minimize the danger to a campus and staff that actively denied their existence. In the process, they gained a better understanding of what they could do, as a circle, and what it meant to be mages.
