1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.

In Croatian and Slovenian lore, a person born with a caul (piece of placenta covering their face) was destined to become either a Kudlak or a Kresnik. A person so destined to become a Kudlak would already begin a career of evil while still alive - his soul would leave his body at night in animal form and fly through the air to attack people or to magically do other harm to the community he lived in. Some stories say that they would become vampires or vampire-like beings. But if a person born with a caul became a Kresnik, he became a champion of the community. While he lived, his soul left his body in animal form at night to fight against both living and undead Kudlaks.

Where the Kresnik was the representative of goodness and light, the Kudlak symbolized evil and darkness.
Sounds like an offer he can't refuse
I originally had Jacques using harsher language for this comic, but Rebecca suggested I tone it down a bit.

Speaking of rewriting, I posted a script for a comic I had written years ago. Check it out, I hope you enjoy it:

I don't think he understands what suicide means
Jacques was nailed to a cross. He found it mildly inconvenient.
well, compared to certain people (leaders of many totalitarian states) he's relatively limited in what he does
Jacques admits he is a monster and then adds that he is a monster because he is human. And on the first page of the month too.
Yeah he has a great big smile on his face
That's not Elena, but Jacques doesn't seem to mind.
Still quite disturbing
Jacques isn't the kind of guy to send a finger in the mail. He'll go the whole way and send you the head. Kind of like The Godfather, except with humans instead of horses.
Your welcome. Can't fight if you are scared to death
Jacques calls 'em like he sees 'em.
Thanks to all patrons for your donations!

Because it will drive a wedge between father and daughter
Why lie when the truth is so much more fun?
Them's fighting words
Jacques knows how to strut his stuff.
@Guest: I understand why the Horde would use child soldiers. They have a lot of territory, lack resources and need bodies in uniform. Plus they're the bad guys, they do bad things. The Alliance (or whatever they're called), from what little I've seen do not appear to lack for resources or man power, so why would they put their children on the front lines? I feel they might be making a game of war. I'm reserving my final judgments for when I've actually seen the show.
Are you kidding?! I'd love to see what they're saying in another language! Save the English translations for the annotation tab.
Oh no, her suitor is a pompous curry kitchen chef...er, customer service representative...I mean, Kwik-E-Mart clerk!
