"My City is sick! The plague spreads like wildfire through these corrupt streets. As a man of medicine. I have taken it upon myself to find an antidote. But for all my efforts I have only made things worse. I have turned mankind into a monstrosity and now my own metamorphosis is eminent. I have unleashed the monster, the monster that will live within you."
