From out of a nearby window, shattering shards fly into the street as a Daemon leaps down. The crowd screams, panics and flees in all directions.[Mike: “What the good fuck!?”] More daemons appear from alleys and other windows as the chanting of foul words fills the air.

[Brian: “The fleshy thing?]
[Angus: “yeah. What do we know about it. Its some assassin thing of the Sophanos. I don’t know why it would want blood of Sophano though.”]
