Refusing to give up on finding his ward, Anthony continues to search the sewers. A strange shadow is seen. And a man, paler than porcelian, emerges from the shadows, babbling oddities about the missing Viscountess cradling a small child. Eventually, Anthony learns that this person, Kendel, knows of the Viscountess’ and Philip’s location, but refuses to show him without proper care. He asks specifically for the Miss Ghostbane, upon the Viscountess’ urgent request. Anthony agrees to find the others and return after seeing the Doctor, which Kendel sternly denies seeing.
