Those people that exist within certain New York circles are well acquainted with the fact that the city has had a running undercurrent of the occult and the supernatural that doesn’t tend to pervade the lower class as much. Furthermore, the same people from said circles know that the only way to really contend with a given threat from either of the above elements is to hire an Exorcist, colloquially called Hunters or Catchers.
See, one of the most prominent and effective Catchers in the city’s history – Edgar Dumas – has just died under shrouded circumstances. He was always a little eccentric, but oddly enough, he left the majority of his resources, wealth, connections to a relative nobody. Some apartment-bound loser with no real experience in the business, heaven knows why.
And, further complicating matters, every good Catcher worth their salt has what is called a Ward. The effectual squire to the Catcher’s Knight. Typically, they’re a manservant or else a trusted (but reasonably expendable/ low-ranking) assistant.
The heir to Dumas’ career and wealth has neither of those things.
What they do have is a dog.
A dog that, in the night, was changed from animal to human.
And according to the butler-turned-executor of Dumas’ estate, the new duo has their work cut out for them. The demon element has been, in his words, “just rampant lately, you have appointments booked from weeks ago.”
It’s gonna get weird.
