PANEL 1

A body bag is shown.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (not shown)

COME ON, PEOPLE, THE FASTER WE GET THESE THINGS BURNED INTO ASHES, THE FASTER WE CAN GET TO MORE IMPORTANT MATTERS.


PNEL 2

Workers of Department S.N. are putting the bodies of last night’s hunt into highly advanced furnaces. The workers are wearing protective gear to protect themselves from exposure of the vampire virus. Doctor Williams’ is also wearing the same outfit and has a clipboard that he’s writing on.


DOCTOR WILLIAMS (a little arrogant)

LIKE STUFF THAT SHOWS THAT I’M REALLY A SCIENTIST, INSTEAD OF AN MANUAL LABORER LIKE YOU PEOPLE.


PANEL 3

From inside on of the furnaces, two workers are shown putting a bagged body inside.


ONE OF THE WORKERS (annoyed)

MAN, WHAT A SELF-IMPORTANT @#$%HEAD!


THE OTHER WORKER (annoyed)

YOU’RE TELLING ME!


PAGE 2


PANEL 1

The main entrance of the Applimax building is shown.


PANEL 2

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick are like looking up in a position as if the Applimax sign is looking back down at them.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (chilling and in command)

DEEP BREATHS, KID, BECAUSE THE TRICK IS ON INTERROGATION IS TO NEVER LET THEM SMELL ANY FEAR FROM YOU.


OFFICER RICK (a little nervous)

YES, SIR.


PANEL 3

They’re now inside the grand room behind the entrance doors. Miss Carson has been waiting for them.


MISS CARSON (respectful and smiling)

DETECTIVE HARRISON? I’M MISS CARSON, MISTER ADAMS’ PERSONAL ASSISTANT, IF YOU’LL PLEASE FOLLOW ME.


PANEL 4

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick follow Miss Carson.


OFFICER RICK (a little nervous)

I HAVE TO SAY, MISS CARSON, JUST BY LOOKING AT THIS BUILDING; I WOULD HAVE TO THINK THAT SELLING APPLIANCES MUST BE A VERY PROFITABLE BUSINESS.


MISS CARSON (respectful and smiling)

YES, WELL, WE HAVE BEEN KEEPING THE STOCKHOLDERS HAPPY, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.


PANEL 5

Miss Carson opens the door to Mister Adams’ office. Mister Adams is shown behind the doorway sitting at his desk.


MISS CARSON (respectful and smiling)

MISTER ADAMS IS WAITING FOR YOU INSIDE.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and respectful)

AH, OFFICERS, PLEASE HAVE A SEAT AND BE COMFORTABLE, SO WE CAN BEGIN.


PAGE 3


PANEL 1

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick are sitting down next to each other and in Mister Adams’ “other” office that looks normal, but fancy, in comparison with his Department S.N. Officer Rick looks a little nervous.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (chilling and respectful)

BEFORE WE GET STARTED, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR GIVING UP SOME OF WHAT I’M SURE IS A VERY BUSY SCHEDULE TO SEE US, MISTER ADAMS. I’LL TRY TO MAKE THIS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND ASSURE YOU THAT THIS DOESN’T MAKE YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYEES OF THIS FINE COMPANY SUSPECTS. WE’RE JUST CHECKING OUT LEADS ON A CASE THAT I AND THE ROOKIE ARE WORKING ON AND TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE LEFT TO WORK ON AFTERWARDS.


PANEL 2

Mister Adams is show seated behind his desk.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and respectful)

YOU’RE QUITE WELCOME, DETECTIVE, AND I’M GUESSING THAT THIS IS ABOUT THE UNUSUAL KILLINGS THAT I’VE HEARD ABOUT HAPPENING IN THIS CITY AND THE GHOST STORIES THAT SEEMED LINKED TO THIS COMPANY WOULD SURELY BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD NEED TO BE CHECKED ON IN A INVESTIGATION LIKE THIS, CORRECT?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown)

THAT IT IS, SIR, AND AGAIN I APOLOGIZE FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE.


MISTER ADAMS (charming and respectful)

PLEASE, ONE SHOULDN’T APOLOGIZE FOR DOING IMPORTANT WORK.


PANEL 3

Back to Doctor Williams who is watching the workers put more bagged dead vampire bodies in the furnaces.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown and word box)

NOW, ACCORDING TO THE REPORTS, SOME BYSTANDERS HAVE BEEN HEARING STRANGE NOISES FROM WITHIN THIS BUILDING AND ONE, AN OLD LADY WALKING HER POODLE, COULD HAVE SWORN SHE SAW AN OFFICE CHAIR BEING THROWN THROUGH ONE OF THE WINDOWS OF THE UPPER FLOORS.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

YES, WELL WE HAPPEN TO HAVE A ROOM FULL OF MACHINES THAT HELP WITH THE ORDERS THAT WE HAVE TO FILL AND WE WERE HAVING TECHNICAL PROBLEMS WHERE ONE OF THEM WAS MAKING STRANGE NOISES, BUT WAS SOON REPAIRED.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

ALSO, WE HAPPEN TO HAVE A NIGHT SHIFT HERE WHO FOUND AN INTRUDER WHICH I BELIEVE A REPORT ON THAT INCIDENT WAS FILED TO THE POLICE.


PANEL 4

The right side of Mister Adams is shown with his hands in front of his mouth as he listens.


MISTER ADAMS (thought balloon)

ACTUALLY, IT WAS SAM OUT OF HER CAGE DURING A FULL MOON AND CAUSING MAYHEM IN THE UPPER FLOORS OF THIS BUILDING.


MISTER ADAMS (thought balloon)

WHAT A MESS THAT WAS.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown)

NOW ABOUT SOME VANS THAT ARE SAID TO BE EACH OF DIFFERENT COLOR AND MODEL, WHICH HAVE BEEN SEEN DRIVING BY HERE IN A ROW A LOT, YOU WOULDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT, WOULD YOU?


MISTER ADAMS (charming and respectful)

HM, I HAVE HEARD ABOUT THAT AND SEEN THEM ONCE WHEN I LEFT THE BUILDING, BUT I’M AFRAID I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE AND WHAT REASON THEY HAVE TO PASS BY HERE A LOT. I ASSUMED THAT THEY LIVED NEAR HERE AND WERE SOME KIND OF GROUP THAT GO TO PLACES TOGETHER OR SOMETHING. I’M REALLY NOT SURE.


PANEL 5

A row of the said vans are shown in the secret garage underneath.


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and thought box)

IT WOULD APPEAR THAT HAVING THEM SEEN IN A ROW IS NOT A VERY GOOD IDEA WHEN TRYING NOT TO DRAW ATTENTION. WE’LL HAVE TO CHANGE THAT.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown and word box)

I JUST HAVE A FEW MORE QUESTIONS AND I’LL LEAVE YOU SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO RUNNING YOUR BUSINESS.


PAGE 4


PANEL 1

The city sewer and Feather is walking.


FEATHER (chilling and a little annoyed by the stench)

RAT-GUY? ARE YOU HERE? COME ON, MAN, THE SOONER I CAN FIND YOU AND TALK, THE SOONER I CAN GET AWAY FROM THIS GOD AWFUL STENCH.


PANEL 2

Another view of Feather as she looks around.


RAT-GUY (not shown)

THAT’S MY HOME YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT, LADY, AND THE REASON I STAY HERE IS BECAUSE PEOPLE USUALLY DON’T COME DOWN HERE, THERE BY MAKING IT THE PERFECT SPOT FOR GUYS LIKE ME WHO LIKE THEIR PRIVACY AND HATE TO BE AROUND OTHERS.


PANEL 3

Feather’s eyes are up as she thinks Rat-guy is being ridicules.


FEATHER (slightly in disbelief)

YEAH, I BET GOING OUT AND HAVING SOMEWHAT OF A SOCIAL LIFE WOULD JUST GET IN THE WAY OF THE MORE IMPORTANT STUFF, HUH?


RAT-GUY (not shown)

DAMN RIGHT IT WOULD.


PANEL 4

The right side of Feather is shown as she continues to search.


FEATHER (a little annoyed)

COME ON, RAT-GUY, SOMETHING’S GOING ON “UPTOWN” AND YOU’RE LIKE THE ONLY ONE I KNOW WHO HAS A BRAIN WHICH I CAN HAVE A DECENT CONVERSATION WITH. RAT-GUY?


PANEL 5

Rat-guy from Hunter’s Moon Experience #1 is shown..


RAT-GUY (a little annoyed)

MAN, I REALLY HATE THAT NICKNAME THAT PEOPLE LABELED ME WITH.


FEATHER (not shown)

THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR LIVING UNDERGROUND FOR AS LONG AS PEOPLE HAVE KNOWN YOU.


RAT-GUY (a little annoyed)

YOU KNOW IT DANGEROUS FOR ME IF PEOPLE STARTED TO LEARN THAT I WAS WORKING FOR BOTH SIDES.


FEATHER (not shown)

YOU DON’T WORK FOR SIDES, RAT-GUY. YOU WORK FOR MONEY, AS WELL AS PEOPLE YOU OWE FOR SAVING YOUR LIFE.


PANEL 6

Rat-guy walks towards Feather and is dragging a seat.


RAT-GUY (a little curious and chilling)

SO HOW LONG WILL IT BE UNTIL I PAY THAT DEPT IN FULL?


FEATHER (chilling)

UNTIL YOU DIE.


PAGE 5


PANEL 1

Rat-guy takes a seat on his chair while Feather stands with her arms around her.


FEATHER (chilling)

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE BIG NEWS SPREADING ROUND THE VAMPIRE COMMUNITY ABOUT SOME GUY CALLING FOR A REVOLUTION OF SORTS?


RAT-GUY (chilling)

YEAH, BUT WHAT KIND OF REVOLUTION IS THIS GUY PLANNING? HE’S OBVIOUSLY KEEPING MOST OF THE DETAILS TO HIMSELF UNTIL THEN. PROBABLY HOPING THAT FANCY PROMISES THAT SAY THAT THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIVES AND THE CURIOSITY OF OTHERS WILL BRING IN A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT IT DOES HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH FIGHTING AND KILLING, YOU CAN BE SURE OF THAT.


FEATHER (chilling)

SO YOU THINK HE’S FOR REAL OR MAYBE THIS IS SOME KIND OF TRAP WHERE THE HUNTERS ARE WAITING FOR US?


PANEL 2

Another view of the two.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

I NEVER HEARD ABOUT A VAMPIRE TRAITOR LIKE THAT, BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS POSSIBLE. IT WOULD BE SOMETHING NEW TO A LOT OF US, BUT STILL POSSIBLE OF HAPPENING IF THE HUNTERS WERE EVER WILLING TO MAKE A KIND OF DEAL WITH ONE OF YOUR OWN SO TO TAKE A LOT OF YOU DOWN.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

AS FOR THIS NEW GUY…. NOS IS IT?.... WELL…. IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS IS ALL ABOUT HIM INSTEAD OF YOU. THAT HE’S GOING TO BE MAKING ANY KIND OF PROMISES TO GET THE SUCKERS IN TO FOLLOW HIM, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY’LL THINK THEY’LL GET SOMETHING BACK IN THE END, BUT WILL PROBABLY GET SACRIFICED FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GLORY AND PLACE IN HISTORY.


FEATHER (chilling)

YEAH, I HAD A FEELING IT WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO US IF THIS REVOLUTION REVEALS OUR EXISTENCE TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD? WHAT WILL BE OUR FUTURE IF THE HUMANS DECIDE TO EXCEPT THE TRUTH THAT WE EXIST AND TO END THAT EXISTENCE?


PANEL 3

Rat-guy is the main focus, while Feather is partly shown.


RAT-GUY (chilling and a little spooked)

YOU ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT, FEATHER, IT’S JUST THAT YOU NEED SOMEONE TO SAY IT SO TO PREVENT YOURSELF FROM BECOMING DELUSIONAL ABOUT IT, AND THE ANSWER IS THAT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU, OTHERS OF THE SUPERNATURAL, AND PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU GUYS, IS THAT WE WON’T HAVE A FUTURE OF ANY KIND AND HIDING WILL ONLY DELAY THE INEVITABLE FOR A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME BECAUSE “FEAR” WILL BE THE HUMANS’ SOURCE OF DETERMINATION WHEN IT COME TO HUNTING US DOWN.


RAT-GUY (chilling and a little spooked)

THE KIND OF FEAR THAT WILL MAKE THEM DO DRASTIC THINGS THAT COULD GET THEIR OWN KIND KILLED JUST TO GET TO US AND KEEP ON DOING IT.


PANEL 4

Feather is the main focus, while Rat-guy is partly shown.


FEATHER (a little depressed)

WELL, CRAP…. I WAS ACTUALLY KIND OF HOPING THAT YOU WOULD SAY SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD SOON BLOW OVER AND WE WOULD GO BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS, EVEN THOUGH IT SUCKS BIG TIME BEING THE WAYS IT IS NOW.


RAT-GUY (partly shown)

I’M DOING YOU A BIGGER FAVOR BY TELLING YOU THE WAY IT’S GOING TO BE, INSTEAD OF GIVING YOU THE CHERRY ON TOP #$%@.


RAT-GUY (partly shown)

I MEAN THAT’S WHY YOU CAME DOWN TO THIS SMELLY DUMP TO HAVE A TALK WITH ME, RIGHT?


PANEL 5

Another view of Feather and Rat-guy, but they’re quiet right now.

PANEL 1

Feather’s right side is shown, while the sitting Rat-guy is shown in the background.


FEATHER (chilling)

HE HAS FLUNKIES THAT ARE SPREADING THE WORD OF A MEETING FOR ALL VAMPIRES THAT’S TONIGHT.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

ARE YOU GOING? I MEAN ARE YOU INTERESTED ENOUGH TO BE PART OF SOMETHING LIKE THAT?


FEATHER (chilling)

INTERESTED, NO, BUT I DO NEED TO KNOW IF SOMETHING THIS BIG WILL GET IN THE WAY OF MY OWN PLANS. IF WHETHER OR NOT I NEED TO SPEED THINGS UP AND PERHAPS TAKE SOME RISKS TO GET WHAT I WANT.


PANEL 2

The sitting Rat-guy’s left side is shown, while Feather is shown in the background.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

YOU STILL THINK HE’S IN THERE; DO YOU, THE ONE WHO STARTED THIS INFECTION THAT YOU HAVE, IN THAT COMPANY BUILDING WITH THE GHOST STORIES ATTACHED TO IT, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE NOTHING TO GO ON BUT WILD RUMORS?


FEATHER (chilling)

I CAN’T BRING MYSELF TO SKIPPING THIS AND GOING ON TO THE NEXT POSSIBLE CLUE OF A LOCATION UNTIL I’M SURE HE’S NOT THERE. I DON’T WANT TO END UP FOOLISHLY SEARCHING FOR HIM SOMEWHERE ELSE WHEN HE MAY PERHAPS BE UNDER MY NOSE.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

BUT WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU DO FIND HIM THERE, KILL HIM?


FEATHER (chilling)

AS SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY AS I CAN POSSIBILITY MAKE IT AND THEN I GOING TO DESECRATE HIS GRAVE AFTER HE’S BURIED IN IT.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

DAMN, GIRL.


PANEL 3

Another view of Feather and Rat-guy.


FEATHER (chilling)

SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHILE ALL THIS IS HAPPENING?

SOMETHING THAT IS PERHAPS THE SMARTEST THING YOU COULD DO IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS.


PANEL 4

Same as panel 3.


RAT-GUY (chilling)

I’M GOING TO GO GET A PEN AND PIECE OF PAPER TO WRITE MY WILL AND LAST TESTAMENT ON.


FEATHER (chilling)

CUTE.


PAGE 7


PANEL 1

FEATHER (chilling)

I KNOW YOU BEEN DOING JOBS FOR A MISTER ADAMS AND I KNOW WHO HE WORKS FOR.


PANEL 2

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick are now leaving the Applimax building thru the main entrance.


FEATHER (not shown and word box)

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE PLACE?


PANEL 3

Miss Carson enters Mister Adams’ office; Mister Adams is still sitting at his desk and looks like he’s thinking.


MISS CARSON (serious)

FROM WHAT I COULD TELL, THIS DETECTIVE AND HIS COMPANION DON’T LOOK TOO THREATENING TO WHAT WE REALLY DO HERE.


MISTER ADAMS (serious)

ACTUALLY, MISS CARSON, THAT’S SOMETIMES A SIGN THAT THIS MAN SHOULD NOT BE UNDERESTIMATED. THAT HE’S MORE FOCUSED ON THE CASE THEN HIS OWN LOOKS AND WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF HIM.


PANEL 4

Miss Carson looks a little shocked.


MISS CARSON (a little shocked)

YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT HE KNOWS SOMETHING?


MISTER ADAMS (not shown)

MORE LIKE SUSPECTS SINCE I DON’T THINK I WAS CONVINCING ENOUGH TO BE AN INNOCENT BUSINESS MAN WITH NOTHING TO HIDE. IN FACT, I MAY HAVE UNINTENTIONALLY HELP HIM REALIZE THAT APPLIMAX IS LINKED TO HIS CASE AND NOW WE MUST BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN GOING OUT AT NIGHTS WHERE WE HUNT DOWN THE ENEMY WHICH THE PUBLIC THINKS IS A WORK OF FICTION.


PANEL 5

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick head towards their car.


MISS CARSON (not shown and word box)

THEN THE SITUATION WITH THE UNKNOWN VAMPIRE THAT CAUSING A COMMOTION IN THE UNDERWORLD HAS GOTTEN MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR US TO GO AGAINST, HASN’T IT, SIR?


MISTER ADAMS (not shown and word box)

I’M AFRAID SO, MISS CARSON, WHICH MAY GIVE THE NEW PLAYER MORE OF AN ADVANTAGE OF ACHIEVING HIS GOAL WHICH WE STILL HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THAT IS.


PAGE 8


PANEL 1

Detective Harrison and Officer Rick are now in the car. Rick is putting on his seatbelt.


OFFICER RICK (respectful)

I GUESS WE CAN WRITE THEM OFF THE LIST.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (thinking)

IT WENT TOO SMOOTHLY.


OFFICER RICK (a little confused)

EXCUSE ME, SIR?


PANEL 2

The left side of Officer Rick is shown as he looks at Detective Harrison who is next to him.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (thinking)

WHEN SOMEONE IS BEING QUESTIONED ABOUT A CRIME, WHEN THEY’RE A SUSPECT, THEY NATURALLY BECOME NERVOUS THAT THEY’LL BE ARRESTED AND JAILED NO MATTER HOW INNOCENT OR GUILTY THEY ARE AND THIS GUY DIDN’T EVEN SHOW A HINT OF WORRY.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (thinking)

IT’S LIKE HE’S HAS BEEN PRACTICING ON BEING FLUID WHEN IT COMES TO QUESTION LIKE THE ONES WE GAVE HIM WHICH TELLS YOU THAT HE MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE.


PANEL 3

Another view of Detective Harrison and Officer Rick. Officer Rick turns the key to start the car.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (grinning)

I’LL ADMIT THAT I AM IMPRESSED; IT SHOWS THAT HE HAS SKILL, BUT IT ALSO TELLS ME THAT RIGHT NOW HE’S MAKING PREPARATIONS ON HIDING HIS TRACKS ON WHATEVER HE’S INVOLVED WITH.


OFFICER RICK (a little confused)

SO THERE’S A POSSIBILITY THAT HE IS INVOLVED WITH THE WEIRDNESS THAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?


DETECTIVE HARRISON (grinning)

IF CRIME WAS A RARE THING, THEN I WOULD GIVE YOU A POSITIVE YES, AND OF COURSE MY CAREER AS A DETECTIVE WOULD BE NON-EXISTENT, BUT HE’S PERHAPS GUILTY OF SOMETHING, BUT WHAT I DON’T KNOW.


PANEL 4

The car they’re in drives away.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown)

FOR NOW, WE’LL FOCUS ON OUR OTHER LEADS, BUT WILL KEEP ONE EYE ON THE GUY JUST IN CASE.


PANEL 5

Mister Adams is shown looking out the window to see the police officers move away from here.


DETECTIVE HARRISON (not shown and word box)

I MEAN WE DON’T WANT TO ACCIDENTALLY LET THE BAD GUY GET AWAY, NOW DO WE?


PAGE 9

ALCHEMIST #3 (not shown and word box)

ACCORDING TO OUR SPIES, WHAT WE FEAR OF HAPPENING IS CLOSE TO BECOMING AN ACTUAL REALITY.


PANEL 2

The eight alchemists are shown sitting at the table.


ALCHEMIST #3 (arrogant and serious)

THEY SAY THAT VAMPIRES, TOO PATHETIC TO GAIN OUR NOTICE, ARE SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT A MEETING AMONG OTHER VAMPIRES.


ALCHEMIST #1 (arrogant and serious)

NO DOUBT THE UNKNOWN VAMPIRE IS BEHIND THIS. IT IS AN OBVIOUS WAY TO BEGIN GOALS AS GREAT AS THE ONE THIS DESPICABLE CREATURE SEEMS TO HAVE.


ALCHEMIST #4 (arrogant and serious)

ALREADY THE PATTERNS OF THE VAMPIRES, ON HOW THEY BEHAVE, TO WHERE THEY USUALLY HUNT, AND OTHER THINGS THAT MADE THEM PREDICTABLE HAS CHANGED LIKE ONE NEST JOINING ANOTHER NEST AND THAT NEST JOINING ANOTHER AND SO ON AS IF THEY’RE EXPECTING A GREAT CHANGE TO OCCUR.


ALCHEMIST #6 (angry, arrogant, and serious)

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!


PANEL 3

Alchemist #8 is looking at Alchemist #6.


ALCHEMIST #8 (humble and serious)

UNACCEPTABLE IT MAY BE, BUT IT WILL STILL HAPPEN IF SOMETHING ISN’T DONE.


ALCHEMIST #5 (not shown)

WHY HASN’T THAT MISTER ADAMS DONE ANYTHING TO PREVENT THIS FROM GETTING THIS FAR?


PANEL 4

Alchemist #8 is the main focus.


ALCHEMIST #8 (humble and serious)

HE HAS, BUT IT’S LIKE THIS VAMPIRE IS ALWAYS TWO STEPS AHEAD AS IF HE’S SOMEHOW GETTING INSIDE INFORMATION OF OUR ATTACK PLANS.


ALCHEMIST #3 (not shown)

IMPOSSIBLE! WHO WOULD BE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO BETRAY US? TO ACTUALLY RISK RECEIVING AN AWFUL DEATH FROM EITHER FROM US OR THEM?


ALCHEMIST #8 (humble and serious)

A DESPERATE PERSON PERHAPS, ONE WHO WANTS TO INCREASE HIS CHANCES OF SURVIVING THE UPCOMING MADNESS, OR IT COULD BE THE TEMPTATION OF IMMORTALITY WHICH CAN BE VERY APPEALING TO A LOT OF PEOPLE, EVEN ONE UNDER THE EMPLOYMENT OF THIS ESTABLISHMENT.


PANEL 5

As if looking above, the eight alchemists are sitting at the table.


ALCHEMIST #1 (arrogant and serious)

IF THERE REALLY IS A TRAITOR AMONG US THEN WE TOO MAY HAVE TO BE DESPERATE WHEN IT COMES TO OUR ACTIONS WHICH MAY END UP SACRIFICING MANY LIVES WHO ARE UNDER OUR COMMAND.


ALCHEMIST #4 (arrogant and serious)

BUT IT WILL BE A NOBLE SACRIFICE IF IT WILL BRING DOWN OUR ENEMY.


PANEL 6

Alchemist #8 is the main focus and looks displeased.


ALCHEMIST #5 (not shown)

YES, SOMETHING FITTING FOR OUR NOBLE CAUSE.

ALL I NEED NOW IS FIND SOME PLAYMATES TO PLAY WITH.
