In the 13th century, Europe suffered through war, famine, and the evils of the pogrom–acts of hatred that massacred tens of thousands of Jews. In 1346, at the height of corruption, the Black Plague struck the Eurasian continent, wiping out half the world's population while spawning a new legend: The Grim Reaper. Now coming full circle, the Reaper returns in 2012… 666 years later.
