I was cast into

being in the winter of 1795.

A living corpse without a soul,

- stitched, jolted...


bludgeoned back to

life by a madman.

Horrified by his creation,

he tried to destroy me.

But I survived and found

my way back to him.



A life for a life,

that's what I wanted.

I took that of his

beloved new bride.


He pursued me to the far north.


I was immune to the cold.

He was not.



I buried him in his

family cemetery.

It was more than he deserved.

I thought it was the end,

but it was actually

just the beginning.





We have been waiting for you.

You will come with us.








Stop! Naberius wanted

it brought back alive!

That was the last of them.

What do you suppose it was?

I don't know.

Never seen a human

kill a demon before,

and with such strength.

It's been a long time

since I've seen demons

this far north.

There must have been

something special about it,

something Naberius wanted.

"Victor Frankenstein."

The rumors are true.



H's alive.

- It's alive!




Your Majesty!

No more than a wild

beast, Your Majesty.

Destroy it and be done with this.

So, you understand reason.

Where am I? How did I get here?

The creatures that attacked

you, what did they want?

- I don't know!

- We heard them speak of Naberius.

Seems he wants this thing alive.

If Naberius wants it alive,

all the more reason to destroy it.




"Him," not "it."

My name is Leonore, High

Queen of the Gargoyle Order.

This is Gideon,

my most trusted warrior.

You were attacked by four demons

under the command of a dark

prince called Naberius.

Fortunately, Ophir and

Keziah were on watch nearby.

They realized who you were

and brought you here,

to our home.

The Gargoyle Order was

commanded into being

by the great Archangel Michael.

It is our sacred duty to wage

war against the demon horde.

666 legions of

hell-spawned creatures

unleashed by Satan after

his fall from heaven.

Humans think of us

as mere decoration.

They do not know, nor could they

conceive of the brutal, unseen war

being fought around them every day.

A war that may one day

determine the very fate

of all mankind.

You have now been

drawn into this war.


I care not for the world of man.

Yes, we've heard the

stories of you.

Shunned by your human

creator, lost and alone.

You would be welcome here.

Until we learn why

Naberius wants you,

I ask that you stay with us,

safe within these hallowed walls.

I go my own way.

Your Majesty, this thing murdered

Victor Frankenstein's wife.

All in the heat of passion,

driven by emotions he was

never taught to control.

He may be more human

than he realizes.

I understand Frankenstein

never offered you a name.

I should like to call you


I promise you this, Adam.

Each of us has a higher purpose.

Yours has simply yet

to reveal itself.

These are but some of the scapulars

of our fallen brothers and sisters.

We have always been

outnumbered in battle.

Now, after many

hard-fought victories,

our ranks have thinned.


Demons, however, remain strong.

To help you survive against them,

the Queen has asked us to

provide you with weapons.

Demons can only be

descended by sacramentals,

blessed objects such as the

crucifix or holy water.
