The Origin of
The Autumn People
My grandmother mentioned only once about The Autumn People when I was just a teenager. She told us children that these people came from “nowhere”; that they would just show up in town one day walking around as if they’ve always been there – but maybe, they have.
Travels of Sadness
Autumn People are “lost souls” who dwell in sorrow & misery, and although they may seem completely harmless, you can be sure their intentions are quite sinister, for they will stop at nothing to gain your soul by tempting you with your greatest wish and pleasure.
Shadow People are known to work for The Autumn People by watching people with vulnerable souls, especially those with low self-esteem and weak character. They scout ahead (or stay behind) to keep a close eye on those they feel will soon falter and quite possibly join The Autumn People and their eternal travels of sadness.
It’s not really known where The Autumn People come from, although they are considered to be “unholy“, generates the thought that The Autumn People must have something to do with Hell.
The Autumn People are NOT demons, and are considered to be nothing more than “lost souls” that are trapped within their own soulless bodies for all eternity.
The Autumn People are very cunning & manipulative and it is believed that the last soul ever taken from the “Region” was from a former Hammond, Indiana resident named Gregory Edgar.
It is not known if The Autumn People are from Hell or are even able to enter Hell.

it just may come
