The Haunted Mansion attractions in the United States currently feature Constance, but Emily’s heartbeat can still be heard in the attic space. The brides share this part of the mansion now, though Constance makes her presence far more known.
For further information on the Haunted Mansion in general, visit Constance.
As canon for the ride/stories isn’t very solid or consistent, a bit of headcanon is necessary. As I develop my own and mold it to Constance-mun’s, I’ll continue to add details here.
- Emily has manifested in several different forms; she was, after all, the only bride in the attic until a few years ago (in actuality, at least; as far as story chronology, Constance has been there for about a century) and her form shifted several times before Constance arrived. However, Nuptial Doom states that she may have been of mixed race. For that reason, I believe her appearance is that of someone with darker skin and brown hair. She was said to be quite beautiful as well.
- Emily died around the age of 20, in the year 1815.
- She is said to have a will of her own. I don’t paint her as rebellious, exactly, but she is willful in her own right. She’s taken to hiding out in the attic and giving Constance most of the space. However, her willfulness is displayed in the fact that she refuses to disappear completely; it was her space first, after all. So her heartbeat can still be heard there.
- Emily gets along with Constance better than anyone else manages to, which is another reason they are the only two staying in the attic.
- Her sea-faring fiance/husband also resides in the mansion. While certain things depend upon interpretation, said sea captain is Mr. Gracey (whether you call him William or Edward makes little difference; I’ve seen other names for him as well).
- Emily (along with Mr. Gracey) is one of the strongest ghosts in the mansion.
Please note that much of this is in accordance with Constance-mun’s headcanon. I’m willing to work around headcanons to an extent - so long as it doesn’t actually interfere with my characterization, of course.
