Father O'Leary unlocks a door that's been locked for eight centuries.
Father O’Leary bent over the vicar’s body and removed a sacred key from his victim’s vestment. Gone mad and possessed, the Devil’s disciple dropped a bloody dagger and hurried to the labyrinth below St. Alban’s Cathedral.

O’Leary stood before the locked door that had been sealed with Crusaders’ blood in the 13th century; the only barrier between a horde of Satan’s minions and freedom. Sensing emancipation, the captured minions rose up and began howling unholy obscenities.

The Devil’s disciple turned the key in the lock. The seal broke and Satan’s minions swept down upon mankind and creation, destroying eternal inheritance.
