At the very rear of the hall was a tall display case, positioned as the focal point of the collection. In it were two figures.

The woman wore a floor-length dress of dark velvet. She had thick auburn hair which fell in long curls almost to her waist, and smooth, cream-coloured skin.

The fingers of her right hand toyed with a pendant hanging around her neck, while her left hand was discreetly tucked behind her. She was breathtakingly beautiful.
