About that: According to legend, she was formerly a prostitute slain by a male lover in the 1930s, and she mostly hangs out in the stairwell between the sixth and seventh floors. But perhaps it is also she who is responsible for the Hunt Club's lightweight roster of paranormal events. (Some patrons have heard strange noises or witnessed glasses spontaneously sliding themselves. That's about it.)
