Asenath Waite came to Miskatonic after finishing her term at Kingsport’s Hall School, and is currently a bright star in Professor Shalad’s medieval metaphysics course. Asenath also quickly took center place in Arkham’s decadent Bohemian set, and a cloud of rumors and infamy follows her wherever she goes. Whispered hints of dark sabbats by moonlight, explorations of the occult and black magic, and scandalous tales of her sexual exploits flutter through the Miskatonic student body. Other rumors (some of which followed Asenath to Arkham from Kingsport) center on her hypnotic personality. Asenath’s odd manner (her bearing and demeanor imply a worldly, aged cynicism far from anything acceptable in a young lady) has been commented on by some of her professors, but so far the hauntingly beautiful young woman has earned consistently high grades in her studies. There is no reason to criticize her intellect. She shows a particular aptitude for history and philosophy.

In October 1928 she married one Edward Pickman Derby, and now resides with him at Crownshield Manor in North Arkham.
