"Be sober, be vigilant. Evil is among us, as a roaring lion, he walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
Vileblood Cradle, is a fortified society nestled beside the round lake. It’s leader, is a domineering but soft spoken man called Elder Emmerich. The Father is a spiritual fanatic and a hypocrite. He easily finds guilt where it doesn’t exist, while ignoring other atrocities taking place. His authority reaches well beyond the realm of the spiritual – people from the village do exactly what he says.
Elder Emmerich died during interigation, when his tongue ruptured through his throat at the utterance of the words “They’re building an army” ,following a violent altercation that left Cradle in ruin.
