The Salem witch trials were a series of court trials and executions in colonial Massachusetts, in and around the town of Salem, in the late 17th century. The trials began as the result of mass hysteria regarding the presence of witches in the area, leading to over two hundred accusations and twenty executions.
The Lucian branch of the Cahill family, led by Massachusetts lieutenant governor William Stoughton, capitalized on the hysteria of the witch hunt to eliminate several members of rival branches in colonial America and steal their Clues. The Lucians were able to successfully steal at least one Clue, Honey, from the Janus branch.
