Post On the streets of gothic earth, you might meet...
This thread is meant for us to post articles or biographies we might happen across about people who might have lived during the gothic period of history. For the living, It's best if we keep the time period confined to the period between 1850 and 1945. Any earlier and it's almost a sure bet that the person would have to have passed into the undead (which is fine, The poster just has to include how they got there) Any later than 1945 and we're into the atomic age and the cold war.-events that would surely force the Red Death to change its behavior in certain ways. Maybe even force it into dormancy. Anyway, let's try and keep this for more obscure people. Major players like Mark Twain and Queen Victoria probably deserve their own threads. Well, I'll give you an example.

As you may have noticed, Wikipedia is a great source for these characters. An inventive gamesmith can build an entire game around them or just use them for flavor. Even if some of these people didn't quite make it to the gothic era. They certainly would have affected it. :D
