Aaaaah! Ma’am, can you please turn
off the light?! I can’t see!!
Who the hell are you?
You don’t know us, but--
No, I don’t. I’m very busy.
What was that?! Wh-What just
happened? I still can’t see!
I don’t know. Put the Prophecy away
before something else happens.
You know, I’m starting to think you
might be right. This whole town is
Welp, can’t say we didn’t try.
Stop It. Come on. I mean, look at
that crest carved into the door.
This has to be the place!
So, now she’s all in. What happened
to “I don’t want to risk this poor

things, and now...I’m pissed.

belongs to you. From your family?
What about Godrick?
Well, I’m sorry to say this, but
ummm...we have a medallion that

What about that dogs?
What dogs? Oh, that was just my
bird. Come in! Hurry!
What was that? Did you hear that?
I wasn’t listening. I was
distracted...by all the...things.
Gary wasn’t lying about how much
stuff she has.
This is, uh...quite a place. You’ve
accumulated quite a collection of
interesting items over the years.
Watch where you’re going!
It’s worse than your staff.
I can barley see anything. Oh! May
I light this... Ugh... I think your

into things and grabbin’ what you
What do you want with me? As I
said, I’m very busy.
Was Godrick Gregg your nephew? You
see...Our families...his family and
mine...were close. And Godrick told
me to come see you, and that you
lived in Shadow Run.
...or “The Bog of Faces,” as I like
to call It.
Godrick...uhm...wanted you to have
No, he didn’t.
How did he die?
It... ummm... he was...
Vigile attack... How did you know
It’s the only way this would have
come back to me without him.
His mother met the same fate?
So you are his aunt?
His great aunt. On his mother’s
Did you know Godrick?
Never met him, but I knew who he
was. Our family had to...disperse
before he was born. Gathering
together now It... well It isn’t
something we’re able to do very
Well, at the time It was not...It
was not prudent to keep the family
together. And these days, traveling
is not the way It was. Things used
to be different. Before the
Guardians disappeared, we were
We were at peace with our
neighbors. We were safe.
My sisters and I would play
together without fear of anything.
We would dream up the most
imaginative things. You see this
ORA & KEVIN
My youngest sister drew It.
She loved to draw.
Where is she now?
Oh, she’s long dead. Died same way
as Godrick, sounds like.
Yes. She was 14. One day they
came...we’d never seen them before,
we couldn’t have known...and not a
Guardian in sight.
I knew It. The Guardians are real!
Well...they were, but they left
Then the Vigiles started running
everything and I haven’t seen any
of my family since.
But, what happened to your family?
They had thought my little sister
was magic... weather It was true or
not, once they took her It was only
a matter of time before they came
for us...My eldest sister,
Godrick’s grandmother, ran one way
and I ran the other. Our parents
stayed behind...thinking It might
throw the Vigiles off the scent.
Why were they after you?
Fear. At the heart of all evil
things...it’s always fear. Fear of
life, fear of death...fear of
difference. We were known to be
kind to the idea of Magic. Forced
me to give up everything and
I imagine that’s why I hold on to
so many things.
Why could you just go back?
Even to this day, decades later, we
are being watched. I still have the
odd young fighter who has heard
some story show up at my door. It
happens less then It used to, but
they never find anything and
usually regret It. That’s why we
never go back. To protect each
What’s the crest mean on the
Oh, nothing. My sister always
wanted our family to have this long
mysterious past, so we made one up.
And this was our “secret family
crest” we used to identify
ourselves, if needed.
If that’s true, then why did
Godrick think It was so important?
I don’t know. I mean its important
to me I suppose but no one else
would care. It is nice however, to
know that he cared enough to get It
back to me. It’s good to feel like
you still have family.
I wish I new that feeling.
So you hadn’t seen your family in
Oh, we would send letters
sometimes. Just notes now and then
letting one another know we were
still holding on. My sister had a
family and I would hear from her
every so often, but her last
message was blank, just a folded
scrap of paper with another, nearly
identical amulet - her’s. Well, I
knew what had happened.
Ummm... Look I got to ask. What is
that thing? That can’t be the bird
Oh, him? That’s Chauncy. He’s an
ethologus. They live for hundreds
He only behaves for...certain
Really? Hundreds of years?
So...this “bird” was the thing
barking at us?
He’s good at impressions...
He’s good at impressions...
Are we really supposed to believe
that that bird is...
Aaaa! AAAA!! Get him off!
Get him off! Get him off. Get him
off. Get him off now. Aaaa...
Ethologi can live hundreds of
years. Some even longer.
He must like you...uh...I’m sorry,
what was your name?
Really... Kevin?... Ha! Too Bad
Hey, listen, I’ve had a rough
couple days. And don’t need It from
you, too, BIRD!
Why did the Guardians leave?
Ehh...they didn’t just leave...not
exactly....or perhaps they did.
Nobody knows for sure what
happened, but there did come a
point where even the magic of a
guardian was so feared that they
them selves were attacked in one
way or another. There’s lots of
In the years leading up to the
Guardians’ disappearance, there
were those who grew suspicious as
to why they looked after us,
believing that the Guardians were
driven by some dark motive; some
say those doubts are what drove
them away. Others say they still
live among us, in hiding. Some
believe they’re all but extinct,
it’s even been whispered that
they’re all trapped and imprisoned
somewhere far away. It’s all just
rumor and hearsay at this point.
Do you know how we could get them
My dear, if I did, would I be
sitting here talking to you? Many
have spent years looking, many
others have died in the pursuit.
Well...I think I might have some
Yes, yes, yes. I'm sure you do. The

the Guardians disappeared. I tried
to believe It. I wanted to believe.

and searching, but that was many

the more tragic.

Is this the real one?
This the Prophecy from the pub?
Hey. How did you read It so fast?
My boy, I have been around far
longer then the fear of reading;
I’ve read many a tome in my time.
When the Vigiles in the pub saw us
looking at It, they just made fun
It’s for the best. This scroll has
been hanging in the pub for 50
years. The longer It sits there,
the more of a joke It becomes.
Precious few of them, know how to
read It, fewer still place any
stock in It.
Do you go to the pub a lot?
What? Ha, No! I wouldn’t waste my
time. Getting drunk and yelling at
my neighbors isn’t my idea of a
Something about that place brings
out the very worst in people. It’s
no way to act.
But I know what goes on in there. I
know what goes on almost
everywhere. As a matter of fact,
something happened in that pub just
last week that might be of interest
I did no such thing. Now give me
the Prophecy! I deserve It! It’s me
that It speaks of. It’s practically
my life’s story!
First we would truly have to
believe you can read, and second I
doubt It says the Chosen One’s a
Come now! We should be more
hospitable to our guest. You must
excuse us, Chosen One. We’ve been
waiting years for you to show your
face. After all this time, we can
certainly excuse a wee bit of

Take your hands off me!
Oooooo, I’m so sorry Chosen One.
I’m certain you pass all the tests!
This calls for a toast!

Oh Oh, I’ll get It, let me get It.
Let me, let me get It. Let me get

deaths toll, I alone shall draw
fire!!!! So sayeth the Prophecy! I
am Isten, the Chosen One. And...
Here, here, Drink this. Drink up
and...I don't need a toast!
You refuse us? You refuse our
hospitality? A prophet would never
insult us in such a way.
Yes... Yes... Of corse.
May the world be saved by the
To the Prophet!
TO ME!! THE PROPHET!!
Insults! FALSE. PROPHET.
You’re not welcome in Shadow Run!
On your way then! Back to Yarmouth
Fill It again!
Again, I say!
As you wish, but to insult us twice
is an offense we don't take
lightly, even if you are the Chosen
I show you no insults, and now the
Prophecy is m... (BLAH)
Well, I’d say he’s made the world a

worst in people.
But that man, he said he did
everything in that Prophecy. That

You can’t read?
Only a little, I don’t understand
most of It.
All Hail to you, hear me and say.

Find thy destiny within this rhyme.
I...can’t believe It. I was wrong.
It was all wrong.
It’s not your fault.
What are you talking about?! It’s
all my fault.
Ora, what is It? What’s going on?
Godrick...Godrick...he didn’t have
a dead brother. He did not choose
him self, or move nature. If this
is the real Prophecy, I led him
astray. I got him killed! And...
And for nothing!
No you didn’t! Stop saying that!
I was so stupid, everybody was
I thought the Vigiles...
They killed his parents, but Ora
And then I convinced him he was the
One. I convinced him to go on this
stupid quest and he died. He DIED!

Of course not! It was an

fate had a plan of her own. You
were so willing to believe in
destiny so long as It bent to your
desire, but destiny cares little
for the wants of man. You may not
like It, but that accident was
Godrick’s destiny. Just as It was
our destiny to meet here this
evening. All of our paths were set
in motion eons before any of us
drew breath. Shhhhh...
You’re no more to blame for
Godrick’s death than I am. Shhhh
I...yes? If Godrick wasn’t the
Chosen One, then... Then maybe...
I’m sorry. I...it’s just a lot.
Oh, don't be sorry. A good cry is
the sign of a strong heart. It’s
one of the two best healing things.
What’s the other one?
Stabbing those who deserve It.
Ideally in the eyes.
I’ll remember that.
Okay, now let me see the other
Prophecy you say you saw, the first
one. I assume you have It with you?
Where did you find this one?
My family has had It since I can
Hmmm, I see. I’d guess it’s just as
old as the other one, but I can’t
say I can put much faith in either.
So... You don’t believe It?
It doesn’t matter.
How can It not matter? Either we
can save guardians or we can’t. If
not, then I’ve been wasting my
Have you now? Believing a better
world is possible seems far from a
waste of time.
But does that mean Godrick wasn’t
the Chosen One?
Here I am: Isten! Your Chosen One!
Maybe this Isten fellow is the
Chosen One. Maybe he’s not. It’s up
to you whether you want to believe
in It or not.
But, you don’t. Why should I?
Oh, you’re too young not to believe
in things. Don’t you think the
world would be a better place if
the Prophecy came true?
Then make It come true. Find the
Chosen One and help them to fulfill
Oh! Can I take Chauncy?
Absolutely not. Although It is
interesting how much he seems to
Kevin, you don’t have to come if
you don’t want to. You only agreed
to come this far.
You don’t want me to come with you?
Well, obviously, I’d like you to.
But, you’ve still got so much
training left to do and we’ve
already cheated death on more than
one occasion. If you wanted out, I
But what if this is my destiny?
It’s not Chauncy, but hopefully
it’ll bring you some luck.
Oh, ha its a bird! Wow. Thank you.
A friend of the Greggs. That’s what
It says on there. I’m guessing you
Why do you guess that?
Kevin, we both know you can’t read.
Yeah, I know... but I like to think
that I look like I could...
Ora, you’ll want to keep an eye out
for Vigiles on the way to Yarmouth
We’d better get going then. We’ve
got a long walk ahead of us.
Nonsense. Sit. Stay here for the
night. I’ll make sure you are well
rested and well fed before you set
That’s probably a good idea.
I’ll put a kettle on. Make
yourselves as home.
Seriously, Kevin. You don’t have to

still gonna’ need you to teach me

out of you yet.
