Dubbed RIP, I’m a ruthless killer.
To the upright, I’m nothing more than a sinner.
Although I yearn to protect her, I’m not a decent person.
She has sparked something inside me, one that would make me kill for her sake.
But I’m not her hero. I’m her retribution.
I’ve observed him for months now, envisioning him as my hero.
Never did I ever imagine that he would be my nightmare.
Had I known, I would never have done what I did that night.
Life is rife with cause and effect.
And sometimes, we have to endure the ripple effect.
As per the canon law, a clergyman should never turn against the penitent, not even for murder.

I’m not devout or compassionate, regardless of what you see. I’m a disgrace—a silent killer.

He was never searching for me.

Most stories start years ago, following the devastation of the second bomb.
It not only unleashed a lethal contagion but also separated everyone into the pure, the infected, and the Ragers.
Most remember the time we re-emerged and made a fresh start, while others recollect the day we constructed a wall to protect ourselves from them.
For some, they are nothing other than the remnants left behind.
My tale however starts with a boy, Six, who’s from the opposite side of the wall.
He touched me in a special way and helped me to confront my deepest truth.

But in order to find it, we will have to go to a place where the most disturbing mutations lie, waiting to be unleashed.
The Kings of carrion are our only hope. We gave them love and they offered us protection.
Getting the cure may however require a sacrifice that may be too great to bear.
Tales about the Alphas are nothing new. Built to destroy humans and mutations, they were designed to ensure protection against the infected.
Everything however changed when they disobeyed their masters.
Made Calico experiments, they went through terrible tests that turned them into brutal beasts.
But after the end of the end of Calico, many of them escaped, only to be chased after by our Legion army.
I never knew they existed anymore, until I encountered the god of monsters.
I no longer believe the tales.
Giving your heart to an Alpha is said to be impossible. Giving it to a god would however be a disaster.
