Clara Grey’s parents once told her that the world was a dark and dangerous place. There was more truth than fiction to those words, because there were things that lurked in the shadows which defied the laws of nature. Perversions which fed on the dead or had themselves 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 of hunters who work outside the confines of the Church. As keepers of the arcane, her order takes an active role to counter these threats. The life of a hunter can be short, many vanish before completing their training. So what does it take to succeed against all odds?

Explore Clara’s origin, a child born before the dawn of the twentieth century. See her undergo rigorous training, face tragedy, and fight in the Great War to become the derringer wielding flapper she is.

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