Famous ballerina Susan Bannion (Suzy to her friends) comes from a long line of successful dancers. Her philanthropical aunt was remembered as a "benefactor to artists everywhere." Suzy herself had a colorful and fascinating career. An incident early in her life, however, has attracted interest in certain circles at least as intense as her dance notices. She was among the last class to attend the famed Tanz Akademie in Freiburg im Breisgau, having enrolled there only months before the tragic fire that claimed the lives of several students and most of the faculty. This academy, founded by the notorious Black Queen Helena Marcos, had long been seen as significant to students of the occult, and rumors connecting the senior staff to an allegedly satanic witch cult had sprung up at various times over the years. In the final semester of the school alone, no less than three deaths of people connected with the school (two students and the piano player) under highly peculiar circumstances had once again started up local gossip.

Ms. Bannion herself refused to discuss the details in public, although Freiburg police commented that it remained a mystery how she managed to escape the blaze when no one else was able to get out of the building alive (fortunately most of the students that evening were attending the opening of the Bolshoi Ballet at the Stadttheater). When asked her opinion of the rumors placing a coven at the school, Suzy commented, "It is certainly true that Helena Marcos practiced the Black Arts. But there is now absolutely no doubt that she is dead."
