A mother is on the floor with her arms around her 10 year old daughter! They both look very frighten! The shadows of the source of their fears are shown on them!

 

HOODED ALCHEMIST (not shown, arrogant, serious, and in charge)

È STATA MORSAc. CURSEDc. QUINDI AVANTI APPARTIENE NEGLI STATI UNITI FINO A CHE NON POSSA NON SERVIRE AGLI STATI UNITI NIENT'ALTRO!

 

(translation: SHE HAS BEEN BITTENc. SHE HAS BEEN CURSEDc. HENCE FORTH SHE BELONGS TO US UNTIL SHE CAN SERVE US NO MORE!)

 

THE MOTHER (scared)

MA LA ERGOT DEL DOTTORE SAID IT IL WAS DAL GRANO CHE STA CAUSANDO QUESTA FOLLIA!

 

(translation: BUT THE DOCTOR SAID IT WAS ERGOT FROM THE GRAIN THAT IS CAUSING THIS MADNESS!)

 

PANEL 2

A hooded robed alchemist, whofs shaped like Alchemist #8, but could be someone else, points at the direction where the mother and daughter are. Next to him are two silver armored men who have their hands up that says that theyfre about to grab someone.

 

HOODED ALCHEMIST (arrogant, serious, and in charge)

MI PREOCCUPO POCHISSIMO FOOLISHNESS DI S DI QUESTO MEDICO' E LA VOSTRA SMENTITA DELLA VERITÀ, DONNA! PRENDERE IL BAMBINO, ORA!

 

(translation: I CARE VERY LITTLE OF THIS DOCTORfS FOOLISHNESS AND YOUR DENIAL OF THE TRUTH, WOMAN! TAKE THE CHILD, NOW!)

 

PANEL 3

One of the silver armor men forcefully takes the girl from the mother, while the other violently pushes the mother away!

 

DAUGHTER (scared and loud)

MADRE!!!

 

(translation: MOTHER!!!)

 

MOTHER (scared and loud)

NO!!!

 

(translation: NO!!!)

 

PANEL 4

The scared mother is still on the floor, while the hooded alchemist is about to walk away! The daughter is still calling for her mother!

 

HOODED ALCHEMIST (arrogant, serious, in charge, and threatening)

MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

EDWARD?

 

PANEL 6

The present. Edward reacts as if his daydreaming was interrupted.

 

EDWARD (interrupted from daydreaming and low tone)

WHAc.?!

 

PAGE 3

 

PANEL 1

Edward is behind his tour guide, Miss Carson, and in front of them is a hallway where employees are walking by them.

 

EDWARD (apologizing)

OH, SORRY ABOUT THAT.

 

MISS CARSON (polite)

THATfS ALRIGHT; I GUESS YOU WOULD STILL BE WOOZY AFTER YOUR gRESURRECTIONh, BECAUSE COMING BACK FROM THE DEAD WOULD HAVE TO BE A VERY EXTREME EXPERIENCE THAT WOULD TAKE TIME TO RECOVER FROM.

 

PANEL 2

A lady, a walking employee, is looking at Edwardfs direction with a suspicious look.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

HERE AT DEPARTMENT S.N. WE TRACK DOWN AND STOP SUPERNATURAL THREATS OF ALMOST ANY KIND, WHILE CONCEALING OURSELVES AS A HOME APPLIANCE COMPANY CALLED APPLIMAX, SINCE A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL THINK WEREWOLVES AND OTHER THINGS THAT BUMP IN THE NIGHT ONLY EXIST WITHIN BOOKS AND MOVIES.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

BY THE WAY, THE PEOPLE IN THE OTHER SECTIONS OF THE BUILDING THINK WE ONLY DEAL WITH KITCHENWARE AND WE WOULD LIKE TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

 

EDWARD (not shown and a little confused)

UM, OK.

 

PANEL 3

Another employee, a man, is doing the same.

 

EDWARD (not shown)

SO YOUfRE SOME UNDERCOVER ORGANIZATION FOR THE GOVERNMENT?

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

THE GOVERNMENT? OHf NO, THOSE PEOPLE WOULD JUST SLOW US DOWN AND ARE ALSO UNAWARE OF OUR EXISTENCE, WELL MOSTLY, SINCE THEY DO HAVE SOME SUSPICIONS THAT WE EXIST, WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN GOING OUT ON A MISSION, BECAUSE MISTER ADAMS BELIEVES THAT THERE ARE ONLY TWO CHOICES WHEN FACING AN ENEMY OR OPPONENT, WHICH IS RESPECT OR UNDERESTIMATE.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

HEfS SOMEONE YOUfLL SOON MEET, BY THE WAY.

 

PANEL 4

Another employee doing the same thing.

 

EDWARD (not shown)

BUT HOW DO YOU GET THE FUNDING TO MAINTAIN A PLACE LIKE THIS?

 

EDWARD (not shown)

IfM NO EXPERT, BUT IT SEEMS THAT THE KIND OF EQUIPMENT YOU HAVE HERE COST MORE THEN WHAT YOU WOULD PROFIT FROM SELLING APPLIANCES.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

ACTUALLY, WE ONLY USE THE PROFITS FROM THOSE SALES TO MAINTAIN APPLIMAXfS CONTINUAL OF BUSINESS, WHILE AN ANCIENT AND SECRET ALCHEMICAL FORMULA IS WHAT GIVES US THE CURRENCY NEEDED TO MAINTAIN DEPARTMENT S.N.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE CONCEPT gTURNING LEAD INTO GOLDh? WELL, THATfS WHATfS PAYING THE BILLS HERE, BUT SADLY WE HAVE TO MOSTLY RELY ON THE BLACK MARKET WHEN IT COMES TO CONVERTING THE GOLD INTO PAPER OR ELECTRONIC MONEY, AS WELL AS PURCHASING THE MORE SERIOUS EQUIPMENT AND MATERIAL.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown)

YOU COULD SAY THAT WEfRE BENDING THE LAW CLOSE TO A BREAKING POINT, BUT MAKING SURE WE DONfT GO ANY FURTHER THEN THAT.c EXCUSE ME.

 

PANEL 5

Miss Carson turns around and looks at the employees that were staring! She looks angry and Edward and the employees are surprised by her dramatic expression!

 

MISS CARSON (angry and loud)

YES!!! HEfS A WEREWOLF!!! AND YOU PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE WEREWOLVES DONfT CHANGE EARLY IN THE MORNING!!!

 

PANEL 6

Miss Carson is now calm and smiling. She uses her left hand to straighten her hair as she and the spooked Edward walks away. The spooked employees she yelled at are shown in the background. One of them dropped their papers.

 

MISS CARSON (calm and cheery)

WELL THEN, SHALL WE CONTINUE?

 

EDWARD (a little nervous)

UM, YEAH, SURE.

 

PAGE 4

 

PANEL 1

Miss Carson and Edward are in another hallway that has framed pictures on the wall.

 

MISS CARSON (polite)

I FEEL AS THOUGH THAT I NEED TO TELL YOU THAT THE PEOPLE UPSTAIRS DONfT KNOW ABOUT THIS PART OF THE BUSINESS AND IT MIGHT BE BEST TO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF IN CASE YOU BUMP INTO THEM.

 

MISS CARSON (polite)

MISTER ADAMS WILL WANT TO TELL YOU THINGS ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF YOUR INFECTION, SINCE HEfS THE KIND OF MAN WHO BELIEVES YOU SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT YOUfRE GETTING INTO, AS WELLc.

 

FATHER JOHNSON (not shown)

WHAT ARE YOUR SINS, BOY?

 

PANEL 2

A priest named Father Johnson is shown and hefs carrying a bible. His poser says that he believes that hefs doing godfs work and that the lord protects him from harm.

 

EDWARD (not shown)

EXCUSE ME?

 

FATHER JOHNSON (strict, fanatical, and annoyed)

WHAT DESPICABLE THING HAVE YOU DONE TO BE TAINTED BY THE BEAST WHERE YOU HAD TO BE JUDGED AND PUNISHED BY GOD HIMSELF?

 

PANEL 3

Miss Carson, whofs pretending to smile, looks at Edward as she walks towards the priest.

 

MISS CARSON (pretending to be cheerful, but is angry)

THIS HERE IS FATHER JOHNSON WHOfS SERVICES THE ALCHEMISTS HAD PROCURE FOR MORAL SUPPORT PURPOSES FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHEN YOUfRE FEELING HOPELESSNESS, (low tome) AND WEfRE STILL WAITING FOR HIM TO GET STARTED WITH IT.

 

MISS CARSON (pretending to be cheerful, but is angry) 

IF YOUfLL EXCUSE ME, EDWARD, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A WORD WITH THE GOOD FATHER ABOUT SOMETHING AND IT WILL ONLY TAKE A FEW MINUTES, OK?

 

EDWARD (polite and a little confused)

OK.

 

PANEL 4

Edward notices the framed pictures on the wall and takes a good look at them, while pushing his glasses back to his head with his middle finger like a nerd.

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

FATHER JOHNSON, I DO BELIEVE MISTER ADAMS HAS TOLD YOU COUNTLESS TIMES TO KEEP YOUR FANATICISM TO YOURSELF AND FOCUS ON THE JOB THAT THE ALCHEMISTS HAD ATTENDED FOR YOU TO DO!

 

FATHER JOHNSON (not shown, annoyed, and fanatical)

MY JOB, MISS CARSON, IS THAT WHAT THE LORD HAS ATTENDED FOR ME TO DO WHICH IS TO REMIND THESE gSINNERSh THAT THEY ARE GOING TO HELL AND ARE NO LONGER LOVED BY HIM!

 

PAGE 5

 

PANEL 1

The first picture is the gGerman Werewolf Woodcut, 1722h.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:GermanWoodcut1722.jpg

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

YOU POMPOUS FANATIC! I DONfT CARE IF YOUfRE A MAN OF THE CLOTH! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY WHO GOD FAVORS AND WHO HE DOESNfT!

 

PANEL 2

The second picture is gThe Alchemical Laboratoryh from The Story of Alchemy and The Beginnings of Chemistry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Alchemical_Laboratory_-_Project_Gutenberg_eText_14218.jpg

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

AND ANOTHER THING, STOP MESSING WITH SANDYfS BELIEFS! THE LAST THING SHE NEEDS IS TO BE TOLD THAT ITfS HER FAULT THAT SHE GOT INFECTED AND SHEfS ALREADY DEPRESSED ENOUGH!

 

FATHER JOHNSON (not shown, low tone and fanatical)

THE CHILD ACKNOWLEGDES THAT SHE HAS SINNED AND IS MAKING AN ATTEMPT TO REDEEM HERSELF IN FRONT OF THE EYES OF GOD!

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

ONLY BECAUSE YOU, A PRIEST, REPEATEDLY TOLD HER THAT SHEfS TO BLAME FOR THE SLAUGHTERING OF HER FAMILY WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE SINCE THAT WAS ALSO WHEN SHE GOT BITTEN BY THE SAME WEREWOLF THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR HER PARENTSf DEATHS!

 

PANEL 3

The third picture is gWerewolfh by Lucas Cranach.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Werwolf.png

 

FATHER JOHNSON (not shown and annoyed)

gAnd then shall that Wicked be revealed...whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.h

 

father johnson (not shown and annoyed)

I SUGGEST YOU SAVE YOUR OWN SOUL BY NOT BEING SO gMOTHERLYh TO THE SATAN SPAWN!

 

PANEL 4

The forth picture is Nicholas Flamelfs mysterious alchemical symbols that was on his tomb.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Flamel-figures.png

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

SHEfS A CHILD, FATHER, AN INNOCENT CHILD, OR A PUP UNDER THE FULL MOON, BUT SHE HASNfT DONE ANYTHING THAT GOD CANfT FORGIVE HER FOR!

 

MISS CARSON (not shown and angry)

I HAVE STUDIED THE BIBLE WHEN I WAS A CHILD MYSELF, SO DONfT BOTHER TRYING TO MANIPULATE ME AS WELL BY EDITING THE MEANINGS OF THE Revelations!

 

PAGE 6

 

PANEL 1

The angry Miss Carson is shown walking away from Father Johnson who is in the background. The father still stands firm as he believes he is still the righteous here.

 

MISS CARSON (angry and in charge)

REMEMBER, FATHER JOHNSON, YOU CAN BE REPLACED IF THE ALCHEMISTS DECIDE THAT YOUfRE BEING TOO MUCH OF A BURDEN TO KEEP AROUND, AND I DOUBT GOD WOULD WASTE A MIRACLE ON YOU TO SIMPLY SAVE YOUR MISERABLE PRIDE.

 

PANEL 2

Miss Carson has removed her angry look for Edward who was focused on the pictures and is looking at his tour guide.

 

MISS CARSON (polite)

MISTER ADAMS SHOULD BE READY TO SEE YOU NOW. SHALL WE GO?

 

EDWARD (a little nervous and willing to follow)

UM, SURE.

 

PANEL 3

Miss Carson and Edward are on an elevator.

 

MISS CARSON (serious and a little embarrassed)

EDWARD? I WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT FATHER JOHNSON SAID TO YOU.

 

MISS CARSON (serious and a little embarrassed)

NOT EVERYONE, EXCEPT THE FATHER AND THOSE PEOPLE YOU SAW GIVING YOU THE STARE, SEE YOU AS A DEMON FROM THE DEEP PITS OF HELL, BUT THEY ARE SCARED OF YOU BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU UNDER A FULL MOON, WHICH IS WHY MISTER ADAMS TRIES TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN STILL GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE WITHOUT ENDANGERING ANYONE AND ONLY ASK IN RETURN IS SERVICES IN HANDLING PROBLEMS THAT GO BEYOND NATURAL SOLUTIONS.

 

EDWARD (trying to be polite)

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU MEAN BY SERVICES AND PROBLEMS?

 

PANEL 4

Miss Carson is shown behind an open doors of the elevator, while looking at Edwardfs direction.

 

MISS CARSON (smiling and polite)

I BELIEVE MISTER ADAMS IS BETTER QUALIFIED TO ANSWER THAT THEN ANYONE HERE.

 

PANEL 5

An enormous and lighted by sunlight office room is shown. On the right side are Miss Carson and the shocked Edward. Mister Adams, whofs behind a desk, is on the left side. In the middle is a silver spear with spikes that looks like a work of art.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming and polite)

WELL, HELLO, ITfS EDWARD RIGHT? SORRY, IfM AFRAID IfM TERRIBLE WITH NAMES WHICH WHY I FEEL BLESSED THAT MISS CARSON IS ALWAYS BY MY SIDE ON THESE THINGS, BUT IT NICE TO FINALLY MEET YOU AS A HUMAN.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming and polite)

WEfVE ACTUALLY MET BEFORE, BUT IT WAS WHEN YOU WERE THE WOLF DURING YOUR RESURRECTION.

 

PAGE 7

 

PANEL 1

Edward is looking up and notices the grand skylight windows above.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

PLEASE, COME OVER HERE AND WE CAN GET WHATEVER UNDERSTANDABLE QUESTIONS YOU MUST HAVE ANSWERED.

 

PANEL 2

The nervous Edward starts to walk towards Mister Adams and is about to pass the silver spiked ball.

 

PANEL 3

As if by instinct, and perhaps fear, Edward quickly moves away from the spiked silver sphere as he continues to head towards Mister Adams.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

YOUfRE SPOOKED BY THAT SPIKED BALL, ARENfT YOU? AND IT ISNfT JUST BECAUSE OF THE SPIKES.

 

PANEL 4

Edward is now near Mister Adamsf desk, but is looking at the direction where the spike ball is and looks nervous because of it.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

ITfS MADE OUT OF SILVER, ALSO KNOWN AS ARGENTUM, JUST LIKE THE BULLET THAT KILLED YOU, BUT THE ALCHEMISTS, WHICH I BELIEVE MISS CARSON ALREADY TOLD YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THEM, CALL IT BY ANOTHER NAME WHICH IS gTHE BAD INGREDIENTh BECAUSE IT INTERFERES WITH THE TRANSMUTATION PROCESS OF ALL ALCHEMICAL FORMULAS WHICH IS WHY YOUfRE VULNERABLE TO IT.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

THE ALCHEMISTS WANTED IT HERE TO SHOW THE DEPARTMENTfS AUTHORITY TO ALL NEW WEREWOLVES, TO SCARE THEM TO BE LOYAL, BUT ALL IT DOES IS SHOW HOW OUT OF DATE THEY ARE SINCE IT ARROGATES THE NEW MEMBERS INTO TELLING US WHERE TO PUT THAT SPIKED BALL.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

SAM, ANOTHER LIKE YOU HERE THAT YOUfLL SOON MEET, WAS VERY CREATIVE IN SAYING IT WHEN SHE WAS WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW. A VERY CHARMING YOUNG WOMANc. WELL, NOT REALLY, SINCE SHE CURSED MORE THEN A DRUNKEN SAILOR.

 

PANEL 5

A close view of Mister Adamsf eyes.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

NOW, BEFORE WE GO INTO ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS THAT WE PROMISED, WHY DONfT YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY LEARNED FROM YOUR TOUR?

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

AND PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BE HONEST.

 

PAGE 8

 

PANEL 1

Edward is the main focus.

 

EDWARD (serious and a little upset)

WELL, IT SEEMS TO BE GETTING PRETTY OBVIOUS THAT THESE ALCHEMISTS ARE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING THE CONDITION THAT I HAVE, WHICH MAKES ME WONDER IF IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A CRIME OR NOT, YOUR DEPARTMENT S.N. SEEMS TO EITHER BE OLD OR IS FOLLOWING AN ANCIENT TRADITION BASED ON ALCHEMIC ARTS AND OTHER THINGS THAT ARE CONSIDERED NOTHING MORE THEN FOLKLORE BY THE MAJORITY OF THE OUTSIDE POPULATION, ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU DONfT OFFICIALLY EXIST, AND YOUfRE ASKING ME TO BE PART OF IT, WHILE I REALLY DONfT HAVE A CHOICE IN THE MATTER.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and impressed)

VERY GOOD, EDWARD, YOU HAVE ALREADY ANSWERED SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT ONE WOULD HAVE IN THIS KIND OF PREDICAMENT, AND NOW FOR THE ONES THAT ARE STILL UNANSWERED.

 

PANEL 2

Mister Adams is the main focus and has his hands underneath his nose for support that tells someone that hefs thinking.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT DEPARTMENT S.N. BEING AN OLD ESTABLISHMENT, THOUGH IT ORIGINALLY WENT UNDER ANOTHER NAME WHICH I WONfT BOTHER YOU WITH, AND THE ANCESTORS OF THE ALCHEMISTS OF TODAY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CREATION OF THE VIRUS THAT PROMOTES LYCANTHROPY AND LOST CONTROL OVER IT WHEN ONE OF THE INFECTED ESCAPED THEIR GRASPS WHICH SPREAD THE INFECTION TO OTHER WHO WERE UNFORTUNATE ENOUGH TO SURVIVE THE ATTACKS WHICH INCLUDED BEING BITTEN, ALSO, YOUR RIGHT ABOUT NOT HAVING A CHOICE IN THE MATTER.

 

PANEL 3

The Sitting Mister Adams is looking up to the standing Edward.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming and serious)

EDWARD, YOUfRE OBVIOUSLY A BRIGHT BOY, AND YOU ARE AWARE ON HOW DANGEROUS YOU ARE BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU HAVE AND WHAT YOU BECOME DURING A CERTAIN NIGHT WHICH MUST DEMAND THAT SOME SACRIFICES TO BE MADE LIKE CERTAIN FREEDOMS SO TO PROTECT THE IGNORANT PUBLIC.

 

PANEL 4

Mister Adams is about to get up. Edward is still in the same position, while Miss Carson is near by, but making sure she stays out of the way.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

AS FOR HOW AND WHY THIS ALL STARTED, WELL I GUESS YOU COULD SAY THAT THE ALCHEMISTS WERE WAY AHEAD OF EVERYONE WHEN IT CAME TO GENETIC ENGINEERING WHERE THEY ADDED INGREDIENTS IN THE ALCHEMICAL FORMULA RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CREATION OF THE VIRUS WHICH I DO KNOW THE MAIN INGREDIENT WAS WOLFfS BLOOD WHICH IS ACTIVATED BY A PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER WHICH IS THE FULL MOON ITSELF THAT gSOMEHOWh YOU PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO SENSE EVEN WHEN YOUR FIVE SENSES ARE BLOCK, THERE BY INDICATING A MYSTERIOUS 6TH SENSE THAT MAKES YOUR WOLF HALF WANT TO COME OUT.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

I MYSELF FIND THE PROCESS CONFUSING AND THE ALCHEMISTS ARE LIKE MAGICIANS WHO GUARD THEIR SECRETS WHEN YOU ASK THEM HOW ITfS DONE, BUT I HEAR IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH A WOLF FEELING DRIVEN BY THE THRILL OF THE HUNT DURING A NIGHT OF THE FULL MOON BECAUSE OF FREQUENCY AND SPECTRUM EVEN THOUGH THEREfS HARDLY ANY EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS EXCEPT THAT YOU GAIN WOLF-LIKE QUALITIES, AS WELL AS RAPID HEALING ABILITY WHICH IS A BYPRODUCT OF A ACCELERATED METABOLISM THATfS NEEDED TO MAINTAIN THE TRANSFORMATION.

 

EDWARD (serious)

WILL I GET A CHANCE TO DO THAT, TO ASK THEM?

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

NO, THEYfRE AFRAID THAT YOU MAY END UP TRYING TO KILL THEM IF YOU WERE PUT IN THE SAME ROOM THAT THEYfRE IN, SO THE CLOSEST YOUfLL GET IS THROUGH ME, THEIR OVER GLORIFYING MESSENGER BOY.

 

PANEL 5

Mister Adams is now standing next to Edward.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

AS FOR THE gWHYh, WELL THAT HAPPENED IN 1591 NEAR the countryside of German town Colongne and Bedburg WHEN ALCHEMY WAS STILL THOUGHT TO BE MAGIC BY THE SUPERSTITIOUSc.

 

PAGE 9

 

PANEL 1

A past scene, the hands of a robed man is shown pouring a chemical into another veil that has a chemical in it thatfs getting mixed.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

THE ALCHEMISTS BACK THEN, SOME OF THE TODAYfS ALCHEMISTSf ANCESTORS, WERE MAKING AMAZING BREAKTHROUGHS IN THE SCIENCE AND FELT THAT THEY COULD FINALLY CREATE THE MEANS TO TAKE DOWN A CERTAIN PROBLEM ONCE AND FOR ALL.

 

PANEL 2

Another past scene, five men who look like soldiers are shown drinking something. A hooded alchemist is next to them.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

BUT NOT THE NORMAL KIND OF MEANS WHERE YOU HAVE MEN IN ARMOR AND CARRYING SWORDS, NO, THEY WANTED ONES THAT WERE STRONG, WERE FAST, AND WITHOUT REMORSE LIKE AN ANIMAL, BUT ONLY WHEN THE FULL MOON WAS OUT BECAUSE OF HOW DANGEROUS THESE CREATURES WERE WITHOUT ANY MEANS OF CONTROL.

 

PANEL 3

Parts of three full werewolves are shown acting savage-like.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

AND DANGEROUS THEY WERE.

 

PANEL 4

Another past scene, a man is shown running away.

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

AS WELL AS BEING SO TERRIFYING BEYOND COMPREHENSION THAT ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS DECIDED TO RUN AWAY AS IF IT WOULD REVERSE WHAT WAS ALREADY DONE TO HIM. 

 

PANEL 5

A full werewolf is shown attacking a peasant with a bite!

 

MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

THIS OF COURSE MADE THE SOLUTION INTO ANOTHER PROBLEM THAT LED TO INFECTING OTHERS WITH THE LYCANTHROPY VIRUS, BUT LUCKILY, IN A WAY, WEREWOLVES ARE USUALLY TALENTED WHEN IT COMES TO A KILL, THERE BY CREATING A SOMEWHAT DREADFUL CONTROLLING FACTOR IN THEIR POPULATION.

 

PANEL 6

Mister Adams is once again shown next to Edward.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

WE DO TRY TO TRACK DOWN ANY POOR SOULS INFECTED AND GIVE THEM A PURPOSE TO MOVE ON, BUT SADLY IT ISNfT AS EASY IN REALITY AS IT IS IN THE MOVIES, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE SOME OF THEM DOWN PERMANENTLY.

 

PAGE 10

 

PANEL 1

Mister Adams puts his hand on Edwardfs back as he leads him to Miss Carson.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

ALL THE ARRANGEMENTS FOR LIVING QUARTERS HAVE BEEN MADE FOR YOU HERE, AS WELL AS A HOLDING CELL DURING THOSE NIGHTS WHEN YOUfRE NOT BEING USED, AND TOMORROW YOUfLL BE MEETING YOUR TRAINER.

 

EDWARD (a little confused)

TRAINER?

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

A YOUNG MAN NAMED MARK WHO HAS BEEN EAGERLY WAITING FOR A WEREWOLF TO TRAIN AND WAS BEGINNING TO LOSE HOPE UNTIL YOU CAME INTO THE PICTURE.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

IfM SURE YOU TWO WILL GET ALONG JUST FINE.

 

PANEL 2

Mister Adams hands Edward to Miss Carson.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

NOW, IfLL GIVE YOU BACK TO MISS CARSON SO YOU CAN MEET SOME gKINDRED SPIRITSh AND SHE CAN EXPLAIN TO YOU ABOUT OTHER THINGS LIKE WHAT WE CALL gFREE NIGHTSh, ONES WITHOUT FULL MOON, AND WE ASK YOU STAY WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CITY, AS WELL AS STAY IN THE BUILDING WHEN A FULL MOON NIGHT IS EXPECTED.

 

PANEL 3

Mister Adams is shown in the background waving.

 

MISTER ADAMS (charming)

OH, AND EDWARD, WELCOME TO DEPARTMENT S.H.

ANOTHER MYTH THAT BECAME A REALITY.

 

PANEL 5

Mister Adams is now once again and still looks depressed as he rubs his eyes with one hand.

 

MISTER ADAMS (depressed)

AND WHEN A FULL MOON IS EXPECTEDc.

 

PANEL 6

A close look at Mister Adamsf eyes and nose. He removes the hand.

 

MISTER ADAMS (depressed)

YOU KNOW ITfS GOING TO BE TIME FOR THE LOSS OF ANOTHER POOR SOULfS LIFE.

MISS CARSON (not shown)

THIS YOUNG LADY IS SAM, SHORT FOR SAMANTHA, WHO HAPPENS TO BE A HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUT WHO JAMES WAS KIND ENOUGH TO TUTOR SO SHE CAN MAKE SOMETHING OF HERSELF.

Sc. SANDY.

Miss Carson is upset, but tries to hide it while she walks away.

 

MISS CARSON (upset, but trying to hide it)

EDWARD (a little confused)

UH, SURE, IfLL JUST HANG OUT HERE AND CHILL OR SOMETHING.

 

PANEL 3

Same goes back to playing pool, while Edward watches her.

 

SAM (chilling and focused on pool)

SO LET ME GUESS, THEY GAVE YOU THE TOUR, GAVE YOU THE FANCY BROCHURE, YOU GOT TO SEE THE OH SO gCHARMINGh MISTER ADAMS WHOfS FIRST NAME NEITHER OF US HERE KNOW OF, TOLD YOU HOW THIS MESS WEfRE IN GOT STARTED SO LONG AGO, AND SAID THINGS THAT WOULD MAKE YOU THINK THEY WERE YOUR FRIENDS AS IF YOU WERE THAT MUCH OF A SUCKER TO ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT, RIGHT?

 

PANEL 4

Edward is in the background, while a part of Sam is shown still playing pool.

 

EDWARD (calm)

SO ITfS LIKE STANDARD PROCEDURE WHEN SOMEONE NEW COMES HERE?

 

SAM (chilling and focused on pool)

THAT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOUfRE LIKE DURING CERTAIN NIGHTS, WHILE THE MAJORITY HERE IS JUST EXPECTED TO DO THEIR JOBS AND RECEIVE THEIR WEEKLY PAYCHECKS, WHILE EXPECTED TO KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT ON WHERE THEY WORK.

 

EDWARD (calm)

ALTHOUGH I CANfT SAY THAT I TRUST THEM, THEY DO SEEM CONSIDERATE ENOUGH TO LOOK AFTER MY WELL-BEING.

 

PANEL 5

Sam is the main focus and although she has her stick down on the pool table to hit the ball, she takes a moment to turn her head to Edwardfs direction and grins.

 

SAM (grinning and chilling)

PANEL 6

UHf HUH, THEY DID.

 

PAGE 13

 

PANEL 1

The angry Miss Carson is walking in the hallway of gwalkingh employees with files and stuff.

 

SAM (not shown and word box)

THEY MAY LOOK LIKE THEY CARE, BUT THE SAD TRUTH IS THAT THEY DO IT SO WE WOULD BE EASIER TO CONTROL.

 

PANEL 2

A closer look at Miss Carsonfs angry eyes.

 

SAM (not shown and word box)

THEY LIKE TRY TO FOOL US INTO THINKING THAT DEPARTMENT S.N. IS DIFFERENT THEN THE REST OF THE WORLD, MAKE US THINK THAT THEY SEE US AS POOR HUMAN BEINGS.

 

PANEL 3

Father Johnson is standing in the grand hallway and looks like hefs watching the walk by employees for any indication of sin. The facial expressions of the walk by employees show that the father is making them nervous as hell, but they try to hide it.

 

SAM (not shown and word box)

BUT THEY ACTUALLY SEE US AS SOULLESS MONSTERS WHO ARE LUCKY ENOUGH THAT THEY FOUND A USE FOR OR THEY WOULD HAVE JUST ALREADY PUT A SILVER BULLET THRU OUR HEADS WHICH TO THEM WOULD BE LIKE REMOVING AN UNWANTED STAIN ON THEIR CLEAN WHITE SHIRT.

 

PANEL 4

The angry Miss Carson is getting close to Father Johnson who just noticed her, but is clueless on what shefs going to do next.

 

SAM (not shown and word box)

HERE WEfRE JUST THINGS, EQUIPMENT TO PUT AWAY AFTER USE OR REPLACE IF WEfRE TOO DAMAGED TO EVER BE USED AGAIN, WHICH WILL SOMETIMES MAKE YOU WONDER IF YOUfRE BETTER OFF OUT THERE THEN IN HERE.

 

SAM (not shown and word box)

AND DONfT LET THIS GAME ROOM FOOL YA, ITfS JUST PART OF THE FAKE SCENERY OF THEIR SO CALLED THRUST IN US, A MEANS TO MAKE US FEEL THAT WE NEED TO RISK OUR LIVES TO CLEAN UP THEIR MESSES AS IF WEfRE ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY, BUT ITfS A FAMILY WHICH GOES ONE WAY WHERE WEfRE EXPECTED TO HELP THEM WHEN THEYfRE IN NEED, BUT WHEN ITfS US WHO NEED HELPc.

 

PANEL 5

The angry Miss Carson gives out an awesome punch in the cheek to Father Johnson who is shocked and dazed from it, because of how powerful the punch is!
