It became instilled in their memories as the first time they saw the man in black...
Intone with his black coat, black mud stained boots, black pants; was his mask which had holes for sight.
The watchman they called him; for he watched over the night.. He protected the town from evil that lurked in the shadows. He is good that stepped into the shadows to end those evil within it
But the evil grew so strong.. That the night that was his crumbled off
Chord; made it his business as the leader of losk bandits to rip the mask off the local hero
He had a plan.. One that will reveal the watchman's identity. A plan that involved an innocent life
His plans succeeded; the watchman unable to watch a life die for his identity removed his mask for everyone to see
It wasn't a man.
