Tingles was a gift to Madame Oracula from her grandson Hoodoo. He found Tingles tap dancing at a back alley vaudeville theater in New Orleans. The marquee read “See Mr. Tingles - The Terrifically Terrifying Tap Dancing Tarantula!”  Not one for outright murder, Tingles took malicious joy in terrorizing unsuspecting victims in Perilous Downs by sneaking into their homes and tap dancing up and down the wall behind them. This gave their nerves a harsh plucking and sent them screaming into the endlessly foggy night. The only evidence he left behind was tiny little shoe prints on the wallpaper. Madame Oracula dropped the “Mr.” from his name as it clearly wasn’t frightening enough.
