Character Bio

Cotton Mather photo
Cotton Mather is driven by secret obsessions and desire. He is the well-educated local aristocrat who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt. The foremost expert on witches and malice, Cotton is responsible for the first bestseller published in America about the subject: Glimpses of the Invisible World. But even as he is hunting witches, he lives under the shadow of his very famous father and agonizes about living up to him. Cotton is a man of contradiction. He is a God-fearing Believer that strives to uphold the law, and yet he has demons inside himself that he is too afraid to exorcise.
