This page is part of our first introduction to the lead character, Brian Wegman. Brian is an anthropologist who gets called in from the university to come back to his hometown and consult on a strange homicide with some unsettling evidence.
Brian gets paired up with Winifred Roth, a childhood friend who is now a folklorist and teaching at the local college. Brian has to find a balance between his skeptical, science-driven nature and Winifred’s energetic, speculative geekiness.
Our characters conclude that they are not looking for a killer, but rather, a sasquatch. Once they’re all on the same page, it moves their investigation along. But nothing is as it seems, especially when you’re legend-tripping.
