Following my last post (Found here) about my vision of the pig-man in room 1302 in the Manor House at the Stanley Hotel, which immediately skyrocketed to my most popular, being shared and discussed across social networks (my eternal thanks for your interest), new details have come to light.
Callea got into contact with Madame Vera, asking about the pig-man that she saw a year earlier in the same room. Vera described the entity as an Elemental left from the days of the Native Americans and older than the hotel itself.
Pigs, she went on to describe, are also for luck in the new year. Considering the new year I’ve had so far, there could be something to that.
But upon doing a bit of preliminary research on Leap Castle for a project, I came across descriptions of the infamous elemental that haunts the Irish castle. Mildred Darby, married the property owner in 1889, was a rumored occultist who is said to have discovered the entity, and describes it in an article. “It’s face was human, or to be more accurate, inhuman, in it’s vileness, with large holes of blackness for eyes, loose slobbery lips, and a thick saliva-dripping jaw, sloping back suddenly into its neck! Nose it had none, only spreading, cancerous cavities, the whole face being a uniform tint of grey.”
I was struck by this description. Though no comparison was drawn between the Irish Elemental and a pig, I was interested by the description of the hollowed eye sockets and suggestion of a missing nose, in the same way as I described.

Edit to Add: Nic, who runs the Leap Castle website, just added an interesting update in the comments section down below that also seems to fit nicely. “In many cultures, elementals and lower astral entities take on a hybrid form of both human and animal…it is quite fascinating.”
