Time: the 1920’s
Place: Prague, Czechoslovakia
Stanford Hadley Merrick is a British professor of mythology who currently studying in Prague. Stanford is the fourth son of wealthy landowners in Lincolnshire. Due to his place as the youngest child, Merrick was able to avoid the tedious job of managing the family business and follow his interest in mythology, archeology, and the occult.
Stanford’s interest in the occult would be considered academic in nature, since he studies occult texts and interviews occult figures, but does not engage in occult practices him self. For years the professor has been looking for the origin of some “Universal Myths”; Myths that appear in many cultures all over the globe. This search has led him to Prague, with its medieval libraries and Bronze Age sights out side city itself. In recent months the professor has become fascinated with what he calls“a strange and ancient story which has no analog in the surrounding cultures”. This is the only information about his find that he has given to anyone.
Merrick has set up house in a large cottage in a wealthy suburb just outside the city itself. Being a proper upper class Englishman, he has brought along a small group of loyal servants with him. This group consists of his butler, cook, maid and another male servant. One or more of Merrick’s nieces and nephews often come to stay with there uncle “Stan” for weeks at a time. The professor also has many friends in the intellectual circles of Prague. These circles include academics and artists from all over Europe, the British Commonwealth and the Americas, as well as locals.
