Biography Edit

Mister Jarret was the manager of a funeral home in Collinsport, Maine. In 1968 he received notification from an unknown individual at Collinwood, stating that the family matriarch, Elizabeth Collins Stoddard had died and that the family would like to make arrangements.

Mister Jarret came to the great house at Collinwood and spoke with the family's maid, Mrs. Johnson. She brought him into the drawing room where he also spoke with Barnabas Collins. Both Barnabas and Mrs. Johnson were surprised by his arrival and assured him that nobody from the family proper called to make specific arrangements.

What Mister Jarret never learned was that the call had been placed by young David Collins, who was being manipulated by the ghost of his own ancestor, Quentin Collins. [1]

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Though Mister Jarret had no way of knowing this, Elizabeth Collins Stoddard was not actually dead, but had been placed in a supernaturally-induced sleep-like state that resembled death. The perpetrator of this act was the witch, Angélique, who had been a perpetual thorn in the collective side of the Collins family for several generations.
