In the sixteenth century town of Dole, a proclamation was
publicly read in the town square. It's contents gave permission
for the people to track down and kill the werewolf, that had
been terrorizing the village.
While walking through the forest, a group of peasants heard
the screams of a small child accompanied by the howling of
a wolf. When they arrived they saw a wounded child fighting
off a monstrous creature whom they later identified as Gilles
Garner. When a ten year old boy disappeared in the vicinity
of Garrier's home, he was arrested and confessed to being a
werewolf. He was then burned at the stake.
