Carolyn Fern dwells in the minds of others. Using a complex form of hypnosis, she studies the psychology of her patients through their dreams. Through this practice, she has seen and heard many disturbing things, but nothing prepared her for her most recent patient, Malachi. Following one of their more vivid and troublesome discussions of his dreams, Malachi was brutally murdered. As if that weren't terrible enough, he was murdered with an ornate knife that he had described in one of his dreams. After hearing this news, Carolyn began reviewing her old notes concerning Malachi, anxious to find some kind of clue as to who he really was. Her research has finally led her to Arkham Asylum, where Malachi was once an inmate. Surely she will be able to find some answers here.
