Was curious as to the whole Ghosts all having chain details…

You know, where it came from.. as people aren’t usually buried wrapped in chains? Apparently it comes from Charles Dickens, with Scrooge…

Jacob Marley preys upon Scrooge’s mind in many different ways, notably his face manifesting on the knocker on Ebenezer Scrooge’s front door and causing the bells in his house to ring. The ghost maintains the same voice, hairstyle and sense of dress that he had in life, but is translucent. He wears a handkerchief tied about his jaws, and “captive, bound and double-ironed” with chains which are described as “long, and wound about him like a tail; it was made… of cash-boxes, keys, padlocks, ledgers, deeds, and heavy purses wrought in steel.” He often, in moments of great despair or impatience at Scrooge’s scepticism, flings these upon the ground before him and almost induces his former partner “into a swoon”. He explains that it is the chain he unknowingly forged himself in life, as a result of his greed and selfishness. As he spent his life on this earth obsessing over money and mistreating the poor and wretched to fill his pocket, Marley is condemned as part of his “penance" to walk the earth for eternity never to find rest or peace, experiencing an "incessant torture of remorse." (from wikipedia article- Jacob Marley)

Huh. Wonder what remorse Spectra is carrying around?
