Background

The school bus came to a halt near the city of Zaragoza, Spain. Dust blew over the bus as the engine idled. Once the dust had cleared the driver opened the door. Abbess Jean-Marie gingerly stepped out onto the parched sunbaked earth and took a look around. She nodded her head in approval. It had been a long drive from the north of France to Spain. Not far from the bus was the Aljaferia Palace, which was once a palace that was built by the Moors and later taken over by the Christians. She took a step away from the bus walking towards the palace. Quickly about a half a dozen nuns the wind ruffling their wimples as they came off of the bus. The sisters were taking their holiday in Spain.

Abbess Jean-Marie turned to look at her charges. She smiled at them; her ancient faced creasing with the effort.

“Sisters, it has been a long drive, but I think a little exercise will do us all a little good. Sister Francis, don’t go too far.”

Sister Francis who had just taken her vows a few years previously was the youngest of the sisters, nodded her head in obedience to the abbess. She wandered around the grounds of the Aljeferia Palace looking at this and that. She soon lost track of time and where she was. Sister Francis chastised herself for not listening closer to what the abbess had said. She eventually found herself in a large limestone cavern underneath the palace when she tumbled over something that shouldn’t be there. It was the size of a coffin but made of some strange black material that kind of looked like plastic to Sister Francis. Curiosity overcame the sister and she crept closer.

In the top of the box was a window covered with dust. Hesitantly Sister Francis brushed her hand across the window before peering inside. The strangest looking face lay under the glass. It was a girl inside the box, her skin was of the reddest hue, and at first Sister Francis thought she might be a statue or heaven forbid dead. Then, God be praised, she saw the girls’ chest raise. What to do however was the question. Sister Francis searched all over the box but couldn’t find any lock. In fact the only thing she could find on the box except for the widow was a small logo that read ‘DIY’ over what she thought must be a bar code. She spent the next several hours trying to find something to open the box with no luck. Eventually Abbess Jean-Marie found her. The abbess was quite upset with her, but after seeing what was in the box calmed down.

Gathering the other sisters they transported the box back to the school bus. There was quite the debate about what to do about it, but eventually it was decided to take the box with them back to Igney Abbey. It was loaded in the back of the school bus. Sister Francis kept close to the box keep a vigil over the girl until they reached Igney Abbey. The abbess didn’t know what to do about the box and had it place in the rectory.

That night Sister Francis came in after Compline to say a prayer for the strange girl in the box before retiring for the night. As she knelt down she felt heaviness in her limbs and a wave of dizziness overcame her and she fell down over the box. When next she woke she felt strange. The world around her looked so different and she felt differently as well. Sister Francis had to let out a scream when she looked down at her arms and saw the red skin and the claws on her fingers. She was standing over the box and there was a young nun lying across it. Realization came quickly. She was inside the girl that had until recently been inside the box.

The abbess and the other nuns came running. No one could explain what had happened, but the effects were obvious. Sister Francis’s mind now inhabited the demon girls’ body. At first the nuns dealt with it by placing Sister Francis’s body into the box and having Sister Francis, whom the nuns were to eventually call Pénitence locked up in the abbey. However, on one dark night Pénitence couldn’t stand it any longer, she left the abbey and travelled south to Paris where she fell into a worse crowd, Les Enfants Terribles.

Personality

Pénitence is a devout catholic and believes her to be the strong arm of the church. While she doesn’t follow the directions of the Pope, or Cardinal Syn for that matter, she sees her actions as furthering the interests of the Catholic Church. For the most of her life she has been living with the sisters of Abbaye Notre-Dame d'Igny going so far as taking becoming a novice, before leaving to join Les Enfants Terribles.

Sister Francis is very confused about what has happened to her. She has started to believe that she maybe is a demon or at least a half a demon. This is one of the main reasons she left the abbey.

Quote
