||Tasha's Poltergeist: The Legacy Page.
Greetings! This page is designed to be a brief introduction to
Poltergeist: The Legacy. If you are looking for detailed information I suggest you skip to
the links and go the the Unofficial Legacy home page. There will soon
be an Adult fiction page associated with this site, so if you're interested, check back in
a few weeks.
Thanks for visiting.
For those who are not quite sure what Poltergeist: The Legacy is all
about, let me enlighten you:
The Legacy is an organisation which has been around a good few millenia. It exists to
fight the creatures which inhabit the darkness and the night, be they vampires, demons,
ghosts or witches. The Legacy help the Light, and continually battle against the dark
side. (If anyone is thinking Starwars here, you're not the first :-)). The
organisation is broken down into houses, each with a Precept and it's individual members.
These houses take on cases which involve their area, or require the expertese of
particular operatives. The series revolves round the San Francisco Legacy house, which
runs under the guidance of Dr Derek Rayne.
Their work is both exciting and dangerous, if you haven't watched the show I scincerely
suggest that you do.

|Derek Rayne : Precept
of the San Francisco Legacy House
||Derek is the head of the Legacy house in
San Francisco. The Legacy has been his life since the day his father was killed whilst on
a mission . He is an anthropologist and posses the gift of
the Sight: he is psychic. The members of his house are his family, and he cares for them
deeply. His position and his childhood, however, taught him to keep his emotions in check
and he is not always very good at expressing what he feels. Derek keeps secrets, and this
does not always engratiate him to his friends, yet each member of his team would follow
him to hell and back.
||Nick is an ex-SEAL. Abused by his father
as a child he carries many, sometimes very obvious, emotional scars. His loyalty to the
Legacy is unquestionable, but his methods are sometimes a little too dirrect. He often
does his thinking with his heart rather than his head, and it has landed him in trouble
more than once. He seems to have been very good friends with Philip at one time, but when
Philip left the Legacy he felt betrayed. Now that Philip is back the relationship is
reaffirming itself, but it is sometimes awkward. The only people to whom Nick will really
open up, are Derek and Rachel. He hides his deep emotions from everyone else, although
most imeadiate reactions show on his face.
||Alex is the team's other psychic. She has
a gentle nature, but when pushed is a formidable opponent. She likes to help people, and
her role as social activist gives her every oppertunity. Her closest friends are the other
members of the Legacy, and she has proven her worth on many occasions. Alex was an
Anthropology student of Derek's and her Sight drew her to the Legacy. Her gifts were
nurtured by her Creol Grandmother, and she uses them as well as her sharp mind. She is
also know to be a calming factor when certain of her friends become a little too involved.
||Philip is a Roman Catholic priest and his
loyalties are divided. He broke his vows once, and he does not seem able to trust himself
again. He left the Legacy after the woman he loved killed herself, when he chose the
church over her. Derek asked him to return when he needed his expertise on the Sepulchers.
He doubted his worth to the house until he played a major part in defeating a demon and
saving many lives. He now knows that he can be useful to his friends, but he splits his
time between his parish and the Legacy.
Patrick Fitzgerald as a rather different character in the Caffreys' ad
||Rachel is an MD, a psychiatrist. Her
husband, Patrick and son, Connor were killed in a car accident, and she first came across
the Legacy when visiting their graves. She joined the team after a demon took the form of
her dead husband and she bore it a child in the shape of her son. She had the strength to
reject it, and Derek recognised her worth to the House. Her daughter Kat is the one
remaining member of her family and she would do anything for her. She is a sceptic which
is sometimes useful among people who have been fighting evil longer, and occasionally
forget that there may be simple explainations.
Katherine Corregan (Kat)
||Kat has the Sight. She sees things that
other people do not, and yet she can accept them as normal because she is so young. Her
innocence protected her from the evil which took the shape of her brother, and it played
it's part many times after that as well. Derek feels very protective towards Kat because
he sees so much about her that used to be him. She is so carefree and he does not want her
to loose her chilhood the way he did. Yet he can also see that she may have as little
choice about the matter.
