History

Background: Jackal was born and raised in a very average household, father a salary-man, mother a house-mom. He got average grades in school, was never really bullied, had lot's of friends. That is what propelled him into his current profession; finding and recording the abnormal. He was one of us who spent their high-school years fantasizing of what could be, bored with the way things were, but he actually had the courage to follow through with those dreams.
He has reported on everything from urban terrorists to the future of space travel, falling upon juicy stories like a hungry jackle. Recently he had been delving into a sacrificial cult in New England when he began noticing strange things. Creepy things. Things that shouldn't be there. This particular case ended with Jackal walking in on a house of cultist corpses that looked like they had been ripped apart by a wild beast. Apparently the investigation unit thought the marks on the victims looked an awful lot like a human had made them, and very nearly pinned the murders on Jackal. He slipped through the noose by cashing in a couple favors with people in high places, and a dash of luck.
He happened to be visiting a friend in Kusuke city when the first of the strange occurrences happened, and couldn't help but look into it.

So begins...
