I travel across realms. Realms of storytelling. This place right here is one of them. It exists out of time.

1920s England is based on England in the novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians.


Before First Curse

Not much is known about 1920s England, except that it is one of the realms the Author, Isaac Heller, has traveled to during his search for a good story. A famed dog trainer, Madeline, strives to keep her disturbed daughter, Cruella, locked in the attic after she not only poisons her own father, but also her two consecutive stepfathers. Hearing of Madeline's talent with dogs, Isaac interviews her, believing her ability comes from magic, but she insists it is only from hard work. Deeming this too boring of a story, he inquiries after the three male portraits in her home, suspecting she is thrice divorced or widowed, causing an angry Madeline to throw him out. From her bedroom window, Cruella convinces Isaac to help her escape and she will give him a proper story. They go to a nightclub together, where she leads him to believe her mother killed her three husbands. Smitten with Cruella, Isaac reveals the magic he possesses in his quill and ink that allow him to write stories into reality. Asking her to run away with him, he gifts her the power to manipulate animals, as she returns home one last time to confront her mother. Madeline warns Issac about her daughter's true nature, and he doesn't believe her at first, until he realizes Cruella took his quill. After Cruella murders Madeline, Isaac steals back the quill, using it to remove her ability to ever kill anyone again. ("Sympathy for the De Vil")

  • Murray's Club was a real night club on Beak Street, London, which opened in 1913 and closed in 1975.[2]
    • Fittingly enough, the in-universe name of the melody that Cruella hears on the radio is "The Toast of Beak Street".
