"Your grandfather," Asmoday says, standing, "required a sacrifice. A virgin's maiden blood, freely given. Thankfully, young Alicia Morgan was in love with one of the initiates of his secret Hermetic Order, Maximilian DeVries. Maximilian was given an order. He carried it out, not knowing what he did."
Lady Asmoday grins, broadly and deeply, a sinister, serpentine grin. "As the young couple made love on their lover's bed, your grandfather was one floor below, carrying out his rituals, drawing his mystic circles. I often wonder what thoughts Maximilian had when my newly born form tore him to shreds. . . or what that little slut thought when she saw her hands do the same." Lady Asmoday shrugs. "It doesn't matter, really. In the end. . . it's all just names."
