(Letter sent to Cardinal Nobile)
When I arrived at the PI5 office, I was placed in a waiting room. No one else was present, and I must have been there for a couple of hours before two men, named Clifton Jacobs and Ingram Locke, rushed through the room and into an office owned by Mr. Ropes. I was soon asked to enter. 3 men were present; Mr. Ropes (my boss and has some sort of disorder), Mr. Jacobs (nervous gentleman) and Mr. Locke (old man, untrained, resourceful); the latter one a quite interesting person with knowledge within theology and occult beyond anyone I’ve ever met. I will try to discuss matters important to me with this professor.
We were quickly informed about a cemetery where strange things happened; zombies, ghouls, wights … a missing agent now found and with some sort of devil inside her, tunnels below the cemetery, connection to the sewer, and a live specimen of the ghoul… Mr. Ropes gave me a couple of reports from a Mr. Karl von Dexler, now assumingly mad and taken care of by professionals. The reports were interesting reading, quite military in its form; short and to the bone. It looks like this Nathaniel Bishop has made a pact with the devil, or a demon of some sort. Interesting…First we picked up agent St. Martin at some sort of whore house. I wonder who Mr. Jacobs regularly meet. Afterwards we studied the captured ghoul. Unfamiliar to me, this creature, named Fred, could actually speak. Ingram Locke had a theory that Fred once had been a human, but was transformed to this form by eating human flesh. Interesting… It also seemed to be a fact that Fred was an alcoholic with a taste for whisky, and we used this liquid to get some information from him. It turns out that Nathaniel Bishop’s ancestor (mother?), Agatha Bishop, was still alive somehow, and now named The Queen of Sculls. Everyone “knows” her, and she is some sort of dark bishop. Fred has met Nathaniel, who bring them “food” in a sarcophagus found in the Greenberg crypt (ref. Dexler’s reports, and is actually bodies). They apparently got reprimands when they tried to capture food themselves (they were spotted attacking civilians, and it ended up in the news).
A book written in Latin, found at Mr. Lockhart’s desk, contained information about a demon named Njgotha, brother of Khan the Elder, and places him in some sort of cave named Thang in Tartar. A map from 1705 by Nicola Witzen, Amsterdam, describes where Tartar is. Unfortunately, Tartar is a huge area stretches between the Ural, the Caspian Sea all the way to the Pacific. Njgotha, the thing that should not be, dwells in a cave deep beneath the earth.
I was informed that Agatha Bishop lived in the 17th and 18th century, was known to voodoo after staying a period in Haiti, but was also in Egypt for a while and came back with a lot of artifacts. My idea is to capture this which “alive”, and I might need some information how to perform and tools to do so.
After visiting Fred and reading Mr. Lockhart’s book, a huge specimen of homo sapiens, Mr. Darren Cripps, drove us to the vicinity of Bishop’s cemetery. We met detective Carlton and entered the sewer, passing some entrances to the tunnel system underneath the cemetery. We managed to spot a hidden entrance into an area the other described as cemetery area. One entrance led to some zombies, I was told. Due to detective Carlton’s presence, we took a different path and found a human skeleton, wearing a jacket, a 45 revolver, and a book named “Field manual of the Theon Mark Society”; “A detective’s instructions to deal with the paranormal”. Dead years ago. I blessed his poor soul. We also found 5 newly killed people, all killed in the same fashion; a sliced throat and their bellies cut open. Detective Carlton immediately went for backup. We continued into the sewer, and after a while we found a dead black room. Completely black! But someone played the flute inside it. I feared the most and prayed for our Lord’s strength before entering. After some searching I found the creature playing the flute; a dead zombie! I promptly removed his flute, and the darkness disappeared. Truly some devilish tune! The zombie still played without the flute, so we decided to bring it back to HQ. After some logistic challenges we managed.
Father, I fear there are more demon spawns in this sewer system, and I believe our opponents are strong. I believe Nathaniel Bishop has made a pact with the devil, since his skin cannot be penetrated by mortal weapons. I will continue to work with these people, as ordered by you and the Vatican.
