Our heroes arrive at Clovis and meet Theresa, the Mayor’s secretary. She seems ok, if not rather alarmed when she tells the shiny new Regulators that a fiend has escaped from Clovis’ prison. A girl named Pura. At least, she was a girl when they threw her in there. This Pura has a mind full of iron and poison, as has proven that she has the desire and ability to hurt people with it. A LOT of people.
The Regulators are tasked with returning Pura to prison, or neutralizing the threat. The latter is preferable to Theresa, as Pura killed Theresa’s husband in her escape.
The party is also joined by two deputies, Murphy and Ballmer. Murphy expresses a certain… terror at the prospect of actually meeting their quarry.
