The sparks from the spilled black powder come alive, forming a tornado of fire that dances around on the ground, leaving in it's trail the form of a
pentagram burnt into the pavement, and then the flames subside.
The pentagram still aglow with small flames forms a dark, deep hole, like a portal into another dimension. Joe rises up from the portal, wearing a
purple cloak, and a gold pointed hat. His face covered in a putrid smelling black flungus, his hair and ears are missing, and he looks as if he is
twelve feet tall, as if standing on stilts. He floats towards the Mayor as if walking on air, and waves his arms towards the sun rising in the east
and mutters in deep dark voice, "Puzuzu, spirit of the abyss, here my call, cast your darkness upon this earth!!" The sun vanishes as a deafening
roar ensues the town.
"Jobrill, Lord of the Dead, it is you!!", Mayor Tarrow extols and falls to his knees while he holds his hand up to his eyes as if blinded by a
The fire that was raging over the apartment building and crumpled ambulance suddenly extinguishes itself as if someone blew out a huge candle.
Peter, looks up in disbelief while still laying upon the ground, "Joe...Joe Brill?", he asks the twelve foot tall figure.
The necromancer swings around to face Peter and says to him, "NO...that was my mortal name...I am now Jobrill...the Plaguebringer...the foulest of
Stephen's leg starts to kick and thrust outwards as if trying to ward off an invisible attacker, and then unexpectedly his body rises up from the
ground floating in mid-air, and then comes to rest standing on his feet. A streak of light shoots across the sky and lands in front of Stephen, and a
black horse now presents itself. The great creature shakes itself and snorts, eyes glossy black, it rears up on it's hind legs and lets out a
frightful, "Neigh!!", teeth bearing, and tougue hanging out.
"Pammus...Guardian of the Talisman...mount your steed from the Underworld", Jobrill commands Stephen.
Stephen, who's immortal name is Pammus, bolts into action and jumps upon the back of the horse.
Jobrill swings back around to accost Mayor Tarrow, "You have something that belongs to Pammus, and time is short, give the talisman back to
The Mayor holds the talisman out, still shading his eyes if blinded by a light, "You wish is my command, Jobrill,"as the talisman becomes a jumble
of sparks and flames within it's silver form, it leaps from the Mayor's hands and imbeds itself into the chest of Pammus.
"Ride, Pammus, into the night, with speed of the Lord of Darkness take flight ", the necromancer exclaims. Pammus raises his eyes, fire within
them, to the sky and lets out a battle cry and screams, "Bones of anger, bones to dust, full of fury, death to all mortals, scatter their bones,
revenge is just!!" The horse rears, a streak of light, and they are both gone into the night.
The sound of sirens coming in from the distance, two forms emerge from the remains of the mangled and charred remains of the ambulance. Jobrill
goes towards them, arms waving and says to them, "Knights of the Underworld, crush the bones of the mortals, bring me their souls, I command you."
The two forms, Todd and Rich, leap into action, swords of fire forming in their scorched hands, flesh hanging off of their bones. "With these swords,
we will seal the mortal's fates, O' foulest of the foul, as you wish" they both say in unison and dash off into the darkness.
"Come with me," Jobrill utters while ushering Mayor Tarrow and Peter into a portal which has opened in front of them, "I have more plans for you
two, Jezebel awaits."
