1. Touch the DarkEdit

She gave Cassie an enchanted Tarot deck and had a charm put on it by a witch.[18] Eugenie taught Cassie how to create shields in order to protect herself from the distraction of the numerous ghost trails.[19] She was strict about Cassie not being exposed to the tortures and horrors of Tony's Court.[20] Cassie had bought a locket necklace for Eugenie—turned out to contain a spirit—Billy Joe—She kept the locket an gave her a handkerchief instead. She didn't know anything about Cassie's parents since she arrived after their death—neither did she know anything about Tony's operation.[21] Tony had Jimmy the Rat torture Eugenie to find out what Cassie was doing. It took a long time to get any info from her because she loved Cassie. Tony had left her the body. [22]

She made Cassie wear her hair long and wear long skirts with high-necked blouses—what she considered to be appropriate attire for young ladies.[23] She taught Cassie the myths of the Greeks and the Romans as part of her schooling.[24] Part of the reason that Cassie was still a virgin was that Eugenie watched her like a hawk.[25] She told Cassie not to let Tony know that she could see ghosts—she only understood why later that Tony would have used her for that ability as well.[26] Myra was wearing the same high-necked gown that Eugenie would have approved of.[27]
