You are someone whose soul cannot rest.

You wake up on a bench, shivering with fear. Facing the road, you  then turn left and start walking. 

In front of the St. Mary Magdalene and Lazarus chapel you feel startled and faint.

During the episode, your whole body is being consumed by fire. When you come around, you realise that you're burning. You're in such pain but you don't remember who you are anymore. 

You turn around and see 24 women, who are also burning. One whispers, "Find him and free us!"
