This tale goes toward a certain untold part of the Black Plague that swept through Europe and took a third of its populace in the grisliest of fashions.
See, a certain caravan looked to treat 'special' victims of the plague, those that had not fully lost minds or families to the disease. At first, it was considered a service-it extended the lives of those treated under its watch, and seemed to literally travel through towns at breakneck speeds. In fact, crowds joined the subscription service behind it - known as Grimm's Home for Unsung Legions, as the vaccines used in this caravan were top secret and given only to those who would not reveal its secrets.
However, the truth of this caravan's apparently selfless mission came to light when those members of the service re-contracted the plague, in a virulent new form that literally turned their skin bubbling pitch-black. Worse yet they either ended up taking out entire cities in when they self-destructed, or directing hordes of Black-Plague afflicted compatriots into the homes of royals to take countless vauluable treasures and children, never to be seen again.
Turns out, GHOUL was made to produce its namesake-it turned its partakers, after their administration of the vaccine and a short reprieve period to regain their minds, into single-minded ghasts. Instead of shutting up inside homes, these monsters were created to spread the plague in places of their greatest regrets and revenge upon the society in their final moments.
GHOUL had turned into a destructive cult, and it took several thousand warriors-as well as an alleged foray into mystical arts not revealed, even today-to drive the GHOULS into extinction.
Dr. Grimm, the creator of the super-plague, was never found. And with the notes of the incident suppressed as to prevent a panic at the thought of so evil an entity coming so close to destroying an entire continent and possibly still alive today, the only proof of the macabre industry is in this Trap Card. This is the third card of the 10 Nights of Fright, and now its story is told in full.
