A Sense of Character

Greetings Ghost Fans,

In my recent trips to the Mansion, I have discussed some of the various aspects of the storyline with some Maids and Butlers, some of which train all of the new staff that come to the Mansion. They have told me some interesting stories regarding Constance's husbands, as per the official operating guide for the attraction. A few interesting aspects:

Ambrose is the son of successful farmers, and not being accustomed to formal wear, has an ill-fitting suit.

Frank is a Banker from the East Coast. His marriage ended when he broke her heart, literally. A heart shaped box is fractured on a shelf near his portrait.

The Marquis is a foreign diplomat (no real shocker here.)

Reginald is a Railroad tycoon. Using his earnings, he turned to gambling where he increased his fortune. Following the stereotype of wealthy Americans, he is also a fan of fine dining and eating in general. He was not one to hide his wealth as apparent by the amount of jewelry on his possession.

George was one of the final owners of the Mansion prior to it becoming Haunted. He is indeed the husband who is later featured on the tombstone in the Stretch Room. Much of the items around his portrait are imported from afar, possibly from trips to different countries during his lifetime.

Very nice. I love the imagineers. They get so detailed over stuff that may not be seen clearly, if at all.

On another note: How could Frank break CONSTANCE'S heart? She doesn't strike me as the sentimental type.

So Constance WAS Mistress of the Mansion at one point. Dun dun duuun...!

Does Frank literally breaking her heart mean he broke her possession (the box), and that upset her? Because that would make more sense.
