On February 9, 1783, a funeral was held in the tunnels at the dead heart of London. It was the funeral of a warrior and a conjuror, a paladin and and oracle, the last of an ancient breed who'd once stood between the Earth and the bloodiest of nightmares.
Her name was Scarlette. Part courtesan, part sorceress, this is her history: the part she played in the Siege of Henrietta Street, and the sacrifice she made in the defence of her world.
In the year leading up to that funeral, something raw and primale ate its way thorugh human society, fromthe streets of pre-Revolutionary Paris to the slave-states of America. Something that only the eighteenth century could have summoned, and agianst which the only line of defence as a bordello in Covent Garden.
And then there was Scarlette's accomplice, the 'elemental champion' who stood alongside her int eh final battle. The one they called the Doctor.
