A strange yet intriguing circus has come to town, displaying all sorts of oddities both mysterious and disturbing.
Many people gather to behold the spectacles they have to offer, a variety of shows, exotic beings & fabulous freaks...and a surprising number of monkeys that scurry about, performing cheap tricks for the change in your pocket.
A smiling man in a long red coat beckons all to come closer and behold the wonders that await inside the tent. Once inside the crowd stares in disbelief as faces seemingly appear inside the smoke of a bonfire lit in the centre of the stage. A bald man in dark robes chants and dances around the flames as he summons spirits from beyond.
Hovering masks fly about as bats and suddenly the spotlight surrounds the "volunteer" chosen for the next show. The town local sheriff is called to the stage by the man in the red coat, and cannot resist his enthralling invitation.
The people watch in horror as a hooded old man transforms the sheriff into a chimp in front of their eyes. He shrinks him in size untill his clothes hang loosely from his body, The man in the red coat grins as he offers up a small music box as a welcoming gift. Everyone flees the scene as the carnival comes to an end. The new recruit is brought to a cage to join all the others who have undergone a similar fate. One person for each village the circus passes trough, now monkeys who in the end became the sideshow they wanted to see in the first place.
The man in the red Coat: Seemingly the youngest of the three brothers, always seems to be smiling. His magical abilities are the least obvious of the three, being that noone can refuse his invitation. He also has the power to control flying masks...this has no function and is only used for theatrical purposed
The Bald man: A middleaged man with no facial hair what so ever, always carries a grim expresion on his face and rarely ever speaks...to the living etleast.
He has the ability to summon the spirits of the dead or communicate with them, make deals etcetra. Some believe that the ability's the three have were originaly bargained for trough this man's ability, and that he was the only one born with his gift
The Hooded Man: The oldest brother, and possibly the most powerfull, he has the ability to transform others and permenantly reshape their bodies. It is said that his true power is to envoke different stages of evolution in a chosen subject. Attempting to shape himself into a higher state of being have so far been unsuccesfull.
The sherrif: A middle aged man who used to bully the other kids in highschool and later on became sherrif so he could keep pushing everyone around for the rest of his life, why he was chosen for the transformation is not clear.
It could have been some sort of punishment for his way of life, perhaps the 3 wanted to invoke more fear into the villagers by choosing their "protector" as a victim.
Or maibe as an authority figure he formed the greatest treath to the operation the 3 brothers have going, or maibe it was just random chance...we will never know.
