A battle-hardened war hero embarks on a perilous quest to cleanse the streets of Paris of a sinister threat. *** Captain Phoebus de Chateaupers returns home after years of war to find Paris in a state of fear and the girl he was supposed to marry horribly slain. By order of the highest official and driven by a vow of vengeance, he sets out to dispose of the demon prowling the city at night and its masters. But as the decorated Captain and his loyal cyborg-squire venture into the ever-growing mystery surrounding the fiendish killer, the creatures known only from legend and the very facade of Notre-Dame awaken. The line between monster and man blurs as there is more to this demon than Phoebus was led to believe, and the question arises - what is the true terror haunting Paris? *** [[This story is complete; total word count - 5016]] IMPORTANT; this story holds drama, violence, gore, death.
