Type: Haunting Manifestation

He was killed after it was discovered that he and the Lady of the Manor were engaged in a questionable relationship, and it is reported that she took her own life after discovering the preacher's death. She now takes the form of a grey lady seen in the hotel. More recently (?), plainchant has been reported from the former abbey.
