Preston Hagen is the grandfather of Basil Hagen and the father of Cassius Hagen. Preston died when Basil was five and not long after The Preston Hagen Theater was built in his memory. People who work at the theatre believe that Preston's ghost wanders the theatre protecting people from stage accidents. People who claim to have seen his ghost say that he appears dressed as the Ghost of Hamlet's Father, both ironically and disturbingly the last role before his death.
