Daniel Manley did not experience a single moment of human kindness when
cast out as a child onto the merciless cobblestone streets of 19th century
One unsympathetic evening, while he lay cold and alone in a dark alley, he
pleaded for death over living his abhorrent life a single moment longer.
Upon taking his last gasp of frigid air, a mysterious voice emanates from
the alley’s darkest corner, stopping his despair. Daniel scans the darkness
for the voices’ origination.
His fear turned to optimism as he takes solace in the words spoken by his
newfound savior, ‘Father.’ Guided by Fathers, ‘sound advice,’ Daniel does
his bidding, reigning terror on all who cause society’s ruination.
Is Father a figment of his imagination, or is he possessed by a dark beast
that feeds on his unanswered prayers?
