The Van Helsing Paradox

Clara Grey’s parents once said that the world was a dark and dangerous place. How true their words had been, there were things to be feared that rivaled famine, pestilence, war, and even death. There were things that lurked in the shadows which defied the laws of nature and man, many of which had escaped the chill touch of the grave.

A girl has to look after herself after all

Clara is a member of the Tower, a religious order made up of hunters who work outside the bounds of of the Church. As keepers of the arcane, her order takes an active role to neutralise these threats, but the life of a hunter remains short. Hunter’s frequently fail to return from their missions and are never heard from again. So what does it take to succeed against all odds?

Explore Clara’s origin, as a child born before the dawn of the twentieth century. See how she blossomed into a full-fledged hunter; specifically how tragedy, the Great War and training helped her to become an empowered flapper wielding her trusty derringer.

Throughout her tale keep in mind that no matter the threat, a girl has to look out for herself after all.
