Then there are the rumors of black magic. According to legend, the Darby family who owned the castle summoned up an evil spirit known only as “It,” which still appears from time to time, accompanied by a disgusting animal smell. There isn't really any clear description of It except that It's face always seems to be melting. “It” is only one of the the spirits that haunt Leap Castle, which is not surprising considering all of the people who suffered and died there. One of the theories about “It” is that the spirit is not the result of a black magic ritual, but a manifestation of all of the bad things that have happened at Leap Castle over the centuries.
