Other Characters: Carrie Stokes 1840, Hallie Stokes 1841 Parallel Time (pictured)

A shy and somewhat introverted orphan, the pretty Hallie Stokes is the adolescent niece of Professor Stokes and arrives as a guest at Collinwood. She quickly develops a strong friendship with David Collins, since both have a similar interest in the many supernatural occurences within the mansion walls. However, Hallie's curiosity soon leads her down the corridor of the vacant East wing and into a mysterious playroom, where the music of an early 19th century toy carousel plays a theme of ghostly possession...
