See this? Looks just like a regular coin, doesn’t it? On one side you have the majestic profile of President Lucifer Morningstar, the man who will lead the free world till the end of time. On the other side you have the pentagram, the official seal of President Morningstar’s infernal administration. It’s just a coin, right? But what if I told you it’s the thing that’s going to decide the fate of the world?

But I’m getting ahead of myself. My name is Nathaniel Feisel and I’m a police detective. My partner Sam (short for Samyaza, a strange name in that most infernals prefer names starting with the letter ‘d’) and I were investigating the murder of a prominent industrialist, a high-level infernal that went by the name of Deimos.
