FILE / The Doll of Emilia Grayson
ORIGINS / Oklahoma
A woman named Julia Grayson came to us recently and gave us this doll and the story behind it. She is a close relative of the spirit attached to this item and was very willing to answer our questions but it was clear during the interview that she was anxious. We asked her if she feared the spirit. She insisted that the spirit within the doll was not of a malevolent nature but that her anxiety was provoked by her concern for whether or not the spirit would be treated properly in the hands of someone that was not family. She was also especially adamant about the fact that she did not want the spirit to become aware of her past, the fact that she is no longer alive or that the vessel she is in is not her actual body. The spirit, as it stands, believes that the doll is her one and only original vessel.
Julia introduced the spirit to us as Emilia Grayson, who she called forth and allowed to meet us before anything else took place. The spirit was very calm, playful and energetic. She enjoys reading books, especially ones about different creatures, which she insists are real. She likes to point out all of the ones that she has seen and explain things that other people seem to not know about them. She likes to explore different parts of the house and has a tendency to find things that have otherwise gone missing - she makes a game out of this. She is curious, interactive and full of positive energy. She loves animals and colors. She will make herself know. She will crawl in bed with you and generally do anything and everything a child does. You can walk around a corner and see her on the floor playing. It would be a good idea to get her a doll of her own or even another haunted doll similar to herself. She'll interact with your pets if you have any - she loves animals. You need to be aware of this before you buy the item.
She is completely unaware that she is no longer among the living.
When Julia drew the spirit back into the doll, she told us the story that she had came to tell, during which she also explained exactly why she did not want Emilia to remember her death or the majority of her life while she had been alive.
Emilia Grayson was born on December 18, 1989 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and died on February 12, 1995 making her just five years old at the time of her death. She lived in a small home not too far away from a lake. She was the youngest of four children, all of which had different biological fathers. Emilia's father left shortly after she was born and she was left in the care of her mother who was mentally unstable and known for dabbling in the darker forms of witchcraft, most of which was not successful.
According to Julia, Emilia Grayson was never physically abused, she was just exposed to things that she shouldn't have been. Additionally, she was often the victim of negligent parenting, which eventually did lead to her death. As mentioned before, one of Emilia's most obvious qualities is her adventurous and curious nature. When she had been alive, she was never really one to stay still and often wondered around unsupervised. Due to the fact that her two brothers and one sister often hung around each other because they were older and interested in other things, Emilia tended to wonder off alone.
On the day of her death, it was on a rare day that the siblings had decided to give Emilia attention. They were all heading down to the dock, where Emilia had never really wondered before. Upon arriving at the dock, the two brothers teased Emilia for her fear of the darkness of the water and her claims of seeing monsters swimming under the surface. They ended up pushing her into the water to see how she would react to 'swimming among the monsters'. No one involved had been aware that Emilia was drowning, they thought that she was attempting to fool them. By the time everyone realized that Emilia was actually drowning, it was too late. It was at this point in the retelling of Emilia Grayson's story that we realized that the one that had come to us was actually her sister, which is how she knew the story and all of its details.
They brought Emilia's body to their mother in hopes that she could reverse what had happened. Emilia could not be resuscitated. Her mother, shortly after her death, enlisted the help of a witch, only doing so to avoid getting in trouble legally over the death of one of her children. She had the witch take Emilia's face and plant it on the doll to pull her soul from her body and instill it into the doll, thus binding Emilia to the doll.
This doll remains the vessel of this spirit, which you can call on. As stated before, Emilia is an extraordinarily friendly spirit that is easy and pleasant to interact with. She brings nothing but good auras and atmosphere to your home and general being. Despite the nature of her death and her previous life, there is nothing evil to be found here. We ask that you honor the request of Julia Grayson, as we have, and do not discuss the nature and or the specific details of the spirit's death with the spirit itself. We do not know how she would react and we cannot guarantee that it would preserve her positive nature.
She will make herself know. She will crawl in bed with you and generally do anything and everything a child does. You can walk around a corner and see her on the floor playing. It would be a good idea to get her a doll of her own or even another haunted doll similar to herself. She'll interact with your pets if you have any - she loves animals. You need to be aware of this before you buy the item. This is the most haunted doll with a good nature we have found as of late.
