Since childhood, you were hounded by all manner of dangerous entities, harming the people you love – watching you from the edge of the bed at night. 
Now a practicing priest under the protections of the church, you have returned to your birthplace near Callowhill to rid it of its demons and to save your family from these dark forces once and for all.
You stole away in secret to perform this task, warned by those far wiser than yourself: ‘This evil will take you.’
