The Hand is a inherited item of the Allans Family from Doctor West. The Allans are quite possibly the spookiest family in all of Freehold, Massachusetts and the Hand fits right in. Ironically, being the reincarnated soul of a murderer and thief, the Hand has taken his oddball escape from hell as a chance to reform himself. The Hand really is the least threatening member of the creepy and kooky clan.
It was a scandal when one of the extremely wealthy West family married into German aristocracy, especially with the recent war. It was equally scandalous in Germany, especially when the family gave birth to the infamous Count Reich I and II. It should come as no surprise that the two inherited Doctor West's books.
He's also developed ways of extracting "evil" and injecting it in people he wants to corrupt. Really, he needn't bother, Stacy is almost a saint already.
Dracula, of course, would genuinely FLIP HIS LID if he found out she'd discovered a way to do that.

Good stuff Charles. I especially like the impication that there's an homage to the Addams Family alive and living (or unliving as the case may be) in Freehold. Tell me, does HED have a Collins Family as well.
For extra laughs, let us imagine that the Allan's families' nearest neighbours, the most salt-of-the-Earth, charming and generally blue-collar people they could ever hope to meet.
To be precise, this particular family consists of one of Professor Frankenstein's most disappointingly 'stupid' (read: moral) creations aka Frank, his charming wife Milla (who may or not be a vampire, since the verdict is still out on that one), her eccentric father Radu (who most certainly IS, but has 'taken the pledge' to use the Discworld term), as well as Frank and Milla's werewolf son (who is probably adopted, since I'm not sure even supernatural biology works that way), as well as their niece Norma Jean (a young lady so entirely normal as to be DEEPLY suspicious-looking).
Amusingly, despite the fact that the Allans family is mostly Human, the Mundane family are STILL far more normal than their distinctly upper-class 'neigbours' ever will be.
Walk On The Wild Side:[/b] This began as a reality-television series showcasing the adventures of Robert Jack and Hilda-Anne Sweet (formerly Hannah Black) as they investigated the very strange goings-on of the Quad City area and beyond (they travelled across the US in later episodes); long-time celebrity eye-candy Ginnifer McCauley was added early on, as producters felt the series needed more sex appeal. The blonde wise-cracker did juice the ratings, though only clever editing ever made her appear in danger on the show (Ginnifer is a smart cookie who kept her distance from meta-normal trouble). Eventually Hannah and Robert got tired of the short shrift given to Big Answer and the faux-flirting Ginnifer did with Rob Jack, so they split after three seasons. For the fourth season onward, a male co-host was added (Kane Provost, who once starred in a light romantic comedy re-imagining of Divinos' career) and a rotating cast of minor league metamen were used instead of Rob Jack and Big Answer, including Dark Jeste and Kid Kicks, ex-Elite cast-of)
