Nora and Mary Louise are lovers who have kept their relationship a secret from all but those closest to them for more than a century. That is a long time for a couple to be together, so it is not surprising that the two hit the occasional bump now and then. Mary Louise can be a bit over-protective sometimes, but anyone who goes after one of these dangerous ladies will have to deal with both of them, and they don't mess around when it comes to keeping each other safe.

An undead girlfriend may be just what the doctor ordered given how much trouble he's had in the lady department.
