Arriving in the city, they soon learn of cruel murders that keep the population in suspense and meet Mary Jane Kelly, who is also looking for the murderer.
Personalities known from legends and history
The three protagonists are made up of mythical figures and historical personalities. Du Lac was once an honorable knight who defended the kingdom and its king with all his might. Meanwhile he travels with Fey through the country and kills demons and monsters. He keeps his knightly virtues, so he always appears polite and is always ready to help someone in need. Fey is the king’s sister and was once a powerful sorceress until a curse forced her to take the form of a dog. At Du Lac’s side, she fights monsters that threaten the innocent and searches for the person responsible for the curse.
Mary Jane Kelly, a young woman with a special gift, works as a day labourer and prostitute in London. She is horrified by the terrible murders and determined to stop the perpetrator before more suffering happens.
