Character Bio

John Alden photo
John Alden is a handsome, pragmatic and hardened war veteran. He is Mary’s onetime love interest who returns to his native Salem to find it consumed in a witch hunt frenzy. Salem itself seems to have gone mad – civil liberties have been suspended, torture implemented – gripped by the fear and paranoia of recent witch hunts. Alden doesn’t believe a bit of it. He realizes that he must save Salem because Salem is the fate of the New World – and if he can, then Mary, too, will be saved.
