The game is set in two parallel times. Throughout Season 1 we’ll play as Paul Becker during the Modern Day whereas in Episode 1 it seems we’ll be playing as Clara Rusznyák.
Confronting the violent chaos surrounding the bloodiest massacre in Louisiana state history, Detective Paul Becker is faced with a bizarre mystery that threatens far more than the peace of Pleasant Hill, and casts him headlong into the darkest abysses of his own psyche. The shadows emerging from the carnage only force more questions, particularly about himself and the loss of his wife.
Confused by the chaotic world suddenly surrounding him, this well-dressed man has no memory of the events that allowed him to survive the massacre at Pleasant View Hospital. Knowing nothing but a series of eclectic historical anecdotes with no apparent relevance, he is reluctant to divulge anything before the truth eventually surfaces.
In the aftermath of the gang massacre, this hardened biker finds his hands wrapped around the throat of a man in a suit, hell-bent on killing him. Questioned by the police, he discovers that his only memory is a fractured recollection of history, twisted into a macabre fantasy. With this being the only fragment of truth he knows, he believes that his best course of action is to not cooperate at all.
Clara Rusznyák is a young girl escaping a brutally transient life as a gypsy, torn between the enticing arms of her lover and mistress, Erzébet Bathory – and an executioner’s axe. Blackmailed by the authorities, Clara attempts to uncover the fate of a missing nobleman’s daughter within Čachtice Castle, and offer up the Countess’ secrets in order to end her nightmarish reign.
Driven by her obsession with everlasting youth and beauty, mass murderer and noblewoman Countess Erzébet Bathory has sacrificed over 400 young women to further her knowledge of the occult. But her despicable acts have been pushed aside for a new obsession – her growing love for the handmaiden Clara.
Nicknamed the Blood Countess, she is based of the historical Elizabeth Bathory.
As a courier, Theodoric’s mission takes him on a search for the Emperor of the New Holy Roman Empire, Charlemagne. His journey brings him to a chapel where pious thoughts are far from anyone’s minds.
