Secondary Canon History
Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime
The Parkview Psychiatric Hospital was built in 1954, sponsored by the New York City government. It was built over the ancient burial tomb of Dumazu and a shard of the Relic of Nilhe was discovered by two construction workers. The shard was turned over to the American Museum of Natural History. During the 1989 New Year's holiday, Janosz Poha was committed and assigned to share a room with a current resident named Ismael McEnthol.
Years later, Janosz was released. He soon returned to Parkview and gave a stolen shard to Ismael. Ismael used its power to take over Parkview and its occupants. Ismael then turned over the shard to the junior team of the Ghostbusters when they arrived at Parkview, from following strong ectoplasmic readings from the Sedgewick Hotel. They later returned to Parkview with the reassembled Relic and fought a paranormal army, Ismael, and Dumazu.
