The Companions haunt history even as they are haunted by it. Learn of the eternal couple's conspiracy to see the whole world join them in sweet death. More
"They haunt humanity with two sets of unchanging eyes, confident that one day there will be no more left with the courage to stand up to them, no more left without the fear of sounding mad. One day, no one will say that the majority is a lie or dare call their culture’s progress an illusion. No one will suspect that the ensuing holy war is the work of a two-pronged insanity bent on total destruction.
When that day comes, it will be the beginning of the end. Until then, they work and wait with the patience of undying things: a family, a movement, a cult of two."
