A Wishgiver is a type of demon that lures victims in with their heart's desire and drains them of their life force. One such entity existed at the bottom of an old man made well, based on the collection of coins in it, in New York. The land that the well exists on appears to have passed through various owners, all likely victims of the Wishgiver. Eventually, the well was covered up and a tool shed was built over it. In 1997, the property was purchased by a Long Island tax accountant named Leonard Bates. Bates searched the shed and found the well. He tossed in a coin and wished for a wife. The Wishgiver awoke and created a Ghost Bride.
