Come no closer, stranger.

Are you the woman called Thorne?

What is your business if I am?

I've heard you are a witch.

I am no witch, I am a healer.

I deal in natural remedies, not mystical.


I was told a witch named Thorne

travels the countryside,

seeking out young women

for their magical abilities,

selling their whereabouts

to the coven of the crescent moon.

Now, if this were to be true,

I might know where to find

a young woman with such a gift.

You seem to know much about me,

yet I know nothing about you.

Forgive me.

You are the witchslayer.

I've heard things about you as well.

And I assure you, all of them true.

I told you she was a witch.

Somebody has been sharing our secret.

-What do you want from me?

-The coven.

The queen will kill me if I betray her.

I will kill you if you don't.

I am many things, patient is not among them.

I don't know where the coven is, it finds me.

Not the answer I was looking for.

Wait, wait, wait!

I know where its Warlock will be tonight.

He intends to bind a girl into their order.

It's the village to the south,

the blacksmith's daughter.

She's unaware of her gift.

For this information, I will let you live, witch.

However, I cannot speak for Lara.

She mentioned a Warlock.

Warlocks are a rare breed.

As many witches as I have slain,

I've yet to hear of a queen ruling a coven.

This witch's coven must be powerful.

-Let's find out.


Your skill rivals my own.

You're a good teacher.

You're my favorite student.

I'm your only student.

That's why you'll always be my favorite.

-Let's eat.


Soon you'll be able to take over,




Where is that boy you like?

Haven't seen him lately.

-What is it?

-Someone's out there.

- Don't.

- Who's there?

Who are you? What do you want?



No! No!


Hello, my dear.

My name is Abyss.

I know you are frightened, but don't worry.

We'll become very well acquainted,

as you learn to serve my queen.

She's powerful.

No! No!



-We are going to bind you.

-What do you mean, bind me?

What is this? Let me go. Let me go!

Please, let me go!

What is this?

Let me go!

No! Let me go!

What is this? Let me go!

What do you want? What do...



Let me go!

Let me go!

Is everything prepared?

Let me go! No, don't! Please, don't!

Please, don't. Please.

This will all be over shortly, my dear.

Let me go.

Let me go. Let me go!

You have no idea the trouble you are in.

Where are you?

No, don't. Please.


- I won't hurt you.

- What are you?

A witchslayer.

Father! Father!

I rescued the girl.

Really? Well done.

She's on her way back to the village.

Her father is dead.

But it doesn't look like the work of a witch.

What, then?

I'm not sure yet.

I managed to kill two of the coven.

- And the Warlock?

- Still out there.



Stay away!

I didn't mean to frighten you.

I'm not your enemy.

My name is Lara.

I just want to help you. Try to.

- Go away.

- I'm so sorry.

I just want to help you make sense.

May I help you bury him?

I don't want your help!



Let him go!


The girl's sleeping.

And I found this.

- What is it?

- It's a scale from a gargoyle.

The witch's familiar.

And only a powerful witch

could conjure a familiar.

We need to move.

What do we do about her?

Her magic is strong. I can sense it.

- We should kill her.

- She's an innocent.

Not if she has magic.

You spared her from the binding.

Her magic is still pure.

If I could train her to use it properly...

-No, Lara.

-It takes magic to fight magic.

If I convince her to travel with us,
