Harry Howard

Ministry Investigator


Harry Howard is a man who hears the voices of the past – more specifically, the voices of his own past lives. They live through him now, these former existences, and through them he channels the powers of the arcane. He works now for the Library, a forgotten corner of the British government dedicated to uncovering the mysterious and the supernatural.


p. Spare room in Harry’s house full of all the trinkets that he’s collected that relate to his past lives.

p. Addiction (Nicotine.) One day Harry smokes Silk Cut the next Capstan Full Strength. A week later he’s puffing on a 17th Century clay pipe. A few days later it’s a fine Cuban half-Corunna.
His addiction is the ‘ghost’ of the last past life to have visited Harry. Life was a lot easier when smoking was acceptable!
