Ok guys. Enoughs Enough about the dress. I’ve solved this.

Not sure if this headcanon has been touched upon before, but it kinda piggybacks on the whole “Lewis being afraid of Arthur for a while” thing.

I imagine that Arthur was afraid of Mystery for quite a while after the cave incident (he got his ARM ripped off by what he thought was a harmless little dog, after all).  And if we’re going with the ideas that only Arthur is aware of Mystery’s true form and that Mystery himself cannot speak, just imagine…

Vivi visiting Arthur in the hospital as soon as she hears the news that he’s awake.  She decides to bring Mystery along to help provide comfort.

Arthur having a massive panic attack, because now all he sees in Mystery is glowing red eyes and a snarling maw stained in his blood.

Vivi being escorted out of the room while the nurses deal with Arthur.  She’s standing in shock and confusion to his reaction.  As far as she knew, Mystery was one of the few things that could calm Arthur.

When Arthur finally returns home, he spends the following months utterly terrified of Mystery.  He’s unable to even be in the same room as the dog without breaking down.

The whole time, Vivi has no idea how to help, because Mystery was always what helped.

Eventually it gets to a point where Arthur realizes Mystery is no longer an immediate threat, but he’s still overly cautious when interacting with the dog (whenever he gathers the courage to do so).

When Arthur gets his prosthetic arm working properly, it’s the only one he’ll use to pet and play with Mystery.

By the events of “Ghost”, Arthur has mostly overcome his fear, but I imagine he still gets really jumpy if Mystery moves towards him unexpectedly or his muzzle gets a little too close for Arthur’s liking.

When Lewis rejoins the group, and he notices the ghost’s eerily similar behavior around him, Arthur starts to feel guilty for still fearing Mystery.  At least Mystery didn’t kill him…


A few days prior to the crime, farmer Andreas Gruber told neighbours about discovering footprints in the snow leading from the edge of the forest to the farm, but none leading back. He also spoke about hearing footsteps in the attic and finding an unfamiliar newspaper on the farm. Furthermore, the house keys went missing several days before the murders, but none of this was reported to the police.

Six months earlier, the previous maid had left the farm, claiming that it was haunted; the new maid, Maria Baumgartner, arrived on the farm on 31 March, only a few hours before her death.

Exactly what happened on that Friday evening cannot be said for certain. It is believed that the older couple, as well as their daughter Viktoria and her daughter Cäzilia, were somehow all lured into the barn one by one, where they were killed. The perpetrator(s) then went into the house where they killed two-year-old Josef, who was sleeping in his cot in his mother’s bedroom, as well as the maid, Maria Baumgartner, in her bedchamber.

The police first suspected the motive to be robbery, and interrogated several inhabitants from the surrounding villages, as well as travelling craftsmen and vagrants. The robbery theory was, however, abandoned when a large amount of money was found in the house. It is believed that the perpetrator(s) remained at the farm for several days – someone had fed the cattle, and eaten food in the kitchen: the neighbours had also seen smoke from the chimney during the weekend – and anyone looking for money would have found it.

“You are not special. You’re not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We’re all part of the same compost heap. We’re all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”

Diane Augat was last seen leaving her Florida home in April of 1998. Three days after her disappearance, Diane’s mother came home to find an eerie message left on her answering machine. When she listened, it was a frantic Diane yelling into the phone, ”Help! Help! Let me out!” Sounds could be heard consistent with someone grabbing the phone from her. She was last heard saying, ”Hey—gimme that!” before the call was terminated. The caller I.D. read one word: Starlight. But when Diane’s mother promptly called back, no one picked up. Two days after the phone call, the severed tip of Diane’s right middle finger was found on the side of the road only twenty miles from her home. After two weeks, Diane was still missing. A customer approached an outdoor freezer at a convenience store and inside he discovered a bag of clothes. The clothes belonged to Diane. Two years later and there was still not a single piece of evidence that could lead police to Diane, or what was left of her. Diane’s sister-in-law was browsing a convenience store when she stumbled upon a bag that had the name ”Diane” written on it in black marker. Inside were items consistent with what Diane would have owned. To this day, Diane’s disappearance remains unsolved and for obvious reasons, is presumed dead.
