Bio:

Donny had me working extra shifts at the Underworld. Fine by me—more money, more souls to mark. There were a few odd ones in the club raising Hell (heh.) I was gonna take them out back to crack their skulls like usual but when we got there they overpowered me and fled. And what’s worse, they didn’t even have any souls to mark…

(There’s another regular who comes into the Underworld. Odile. Also Soulless. Strange. I don’t know if or how she’s related to these other guys or not. She’s some bookish type. Maybe she knows something about them.)

When Levi brought in some sort of broken demonic battery, I recognized the name of its creator written in the runes inside it immediately. That guy? You made a deal with him? Oof. Good luck, pal. Withe struck a deal, though; Levi will help me find these soulless beings through more conventional means and I’ll try to get more info about the device and that guy he’s dealing with.

(Jason, AKA The Physicker saw us fiddling with that battery and smashed it to pieces. Said we didn’t understand the powers we were dealing with. What’s his damage?)

Jimmy Rain Dance was at the bar again the other day and told me there were fake Satanists running an orphanage outside of town, selling little kids for virgin sacrifices and the like. Now I could give two squirts of piss about human slavery but damn, people using demon worship to mask their sociopathic rage? That just gets my goat. (Heh.) I followed him to the outskirts of town and smashed up a bunch of poser cultists. Bruised knuckles always make me feel better.
