Victor Nelson: Gentleman occult detective, working for the British War Office to investigate claims of the paranormal during WW2.
“‘You should know a few things about me,’ I said evenly. ‘I’m afraid I don’t scare very easily. I have seen things that would make your flesh crawl. I have stood up and fought against monsters and beasts that would you make you cry like a baby, and furthermore,’ I added, completely unnecessarily, ‘I’m English. Do you really think I would be scared by a backwards little despot like you?’”
“You and I both know that the dark realms, only occasionally half glimpsed, but almost never accepted as true, are a dangerously real and ever-present threat. I have fought warlocks, vampires, werewolves, and all manner of sprites and goblins. I am no disbeliever in the otherworldly and the occult. But this doesn’t mean that one must accept every mad tale as true. For all the unfathomable and powerful wonders in the universe, none of these is as great as the human imagination. It is without limit, and a damaged or confused mind can believe anything it chooses to. Before you accept anything, you must first see it with your own eyes. That has always been my maxim.”
“Something snapped and I stood up and towered over her. ‘For goodness sake woman, don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you?’ I shouted. Then I covered my mouth in embarrassment. But there was no going back now. ‘He’s a bloody werewolf!’ I erupted, ‘do you know what that means?’She was looking at the floor and shaking her head.‘Beatrice, look at me,’ she wouldn’t oblige, so I grabbed her by the chin. I felt a guilty thrill to see the fear in her eyes at my rough handling. ‘When the moon is at it’s fullest it is not safe to be around him. That’s tonight Beatrice; so you have to leave the chateau before then. In the hours before he changes he’ll become aggressive, reckless, dangerous... You’re in the most deadly peril Madame! Are you listening?’”
