You are Nicholas Farepoynt, Haresh al-Dorem, he who speaks with the dead. You are one of the Beast Hunters, a free association of those who, with the help of knowledge of the ancient language of Daemonica, pursue mass murderers and take the law into their own hands where necessary. With historical motivations in their blood and with abilities of which ordinary people do not have the slightest inkling, you are setting out to resolve your next case. It does not seem to be complicated, but appearances can sometimes be deceiving...

Good luck in your investigation!
