Hatbox Ghost is the evil spirit that trapped Leotta in the magic ball. Hatbox Ghost is revealed to be a rich heir named Alistair Crump, who was abused and banished by his  father.

He in revenge killed a few socialites and ultimately got killed by servants. He needs the 1000th soul in the house by sacrificing or killing someone in order to escape the mansion.
