In Their Own Words - Tully
There are two sides to me. I'm a Traveler and a Head of House. Both of these roles are stressful but save lives. Watching lost souls, those in the in-between arriving at my house break my heart. It's all the same situation.
One bad thing happened for them to end up on my front porch. There is one reason they come to me, they have an opportunity, to catch the killer and prevent them from hurting anyone else. Some survive and are able to go back to the real world, but most stay in the Traveling world. Once their tasks are complete they are asked to say as a Traveler.
Some don't stay. Some decided to become roamers. That breaks my heart even more, roamers leave my house and are left to a life of loneliness, they are wiped clean of all their thoughts and that is the end of them.
My role as Head of House is to give each recruit or traveler tasks to help them catch their killer. My latest recruit, Lauren, is like nothing I've ever dealt with. Her story is heartbreaking and her courage reminds me a lot of myself. My second role is what I started out as, a Traveler, you could say I have two personalities.
Being a traveler is hard, catching a killer is even harder, but it's what I do, and I'm the best at it.
