How many times have you told me that the dark's getting stronger in this town? What terrible force makes good men inflict such atrocities or stand by and let them happen? ...Aye, the Bane is to blame, and the Bane must be stopped now.' The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, have travelled to Priestown to defeat 'the Bane', a powerful, evil creature that lurks in the catacombs of the cathedral and is corrupting the County. As Thomas and his master prepare to battle with the Bane, they soon realize it isn't their only enemy in Priestown. The Quisitor has arrived, searching the County for those who meddle with the dark - witches, warlocks and spooks! Can Thomas and his master survive the horror that follows ...?

His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church.
