The Story So Far
Most people think Mark Harrigan is crazy. They can't blame him if he is—he's back from the war, he's seen things no man should see, and there's plenty who came back broken in body or spirit. But Harrigan came back in one piece, all right. He had Sophie.
Sophie believed him, she believed when he wrote her about the things he saw—not the men killing other men, but the other things, the monsters. She believed, and that was enough to keep him sane in the trenches, enough to keep him alive.
Then he came home and went to visit Sophie, and he found out that the reason she believed him was that she had one of the creatures inside her, eating her from the inside out. As he watched in helpless horror, she faded away into the air, screaming as the thing finished its meal.
Now everyone thinks Mark Harrigan is crazy. Maybe he is. Maybe he's finally lost it. But he knows the monsters are real and they're here, and he's got to stop them. As he crouches down in front of the altar in South Church, he prays for Sophie's soul, and he prays for forgiveness for the many, many sins he's about to commit all over this godforsaken town.
There were plenty who returned from the war broken in body or spirit. But Mark Harrigan had witnessed horrors he could not explain. His beloved Sophie believed him when he wrote her about the things he saw - not the men killing other men, but the other things. The creatures. When he came home and went to visit her, he found the reasons she believed him: she had one of the creatures inside her, eating her from the inside out. As he watched in helpless horror, she faded away into the air, screaming as the thing finished its meal. Now everyone thinks Mark Harrigan is crazy. Maybe he's finally lost it, after all. But he knows the monsters are real, and he will not rest until every last one is dead.
