Gloria Allen was a character that was only mentioned in Edward Carnby's storyline in Alone in the Dark (1992). She was an antique dealer who contacted Carnby to come to her shop. Carnby originally thought that something sordid was involved, like blackmail. He was wrong when the shop owner gave him a task of visiting a mansion known as Derceto and to find an old piano up in the loft that was believed to have secret drawers. Gloria then handed him $150 dollars upfront and a key to the mansion, as well as a large sum of money after the assignment was done, which Carnby accepted.
