Granny Whitlock was an elderly woman that lived in the hollows of Collinsport during the early 1990s. She was the widow of Bert Whitlock, a man who came to Collinsport to work the shipyards over fifty years ago. Bert had taught his wife the skill of woodworking and she used this knowledge to whittle custom made, hand crafted dolls. Bert and Granny had a child named Clovis, but Granny has not seen her son in over ten years.
In 1991, Maggie Evans came to Granny's cottage to perform a tarot card reading. Granny had little interest in the affair, but allowed Maggie to perform the reading just the same. Soon after, the ghost of a young girl named Robin took possession of one of Granny's dolls, Cassie.
