As the bones of legendary demon wolf Black Shuck were uncovered by archaelogists this week, how will the shadowy Werewolves of Bungay protest this desecration of his holy bones?
Archaeologists uncovered massive 7 foot long wolf bones that had been ceremonially buried at a church in Suffolk, England this week, and confirmed they had found the secret grave of legendary demon wolf, Black Shuck, who terrorized church goers in the middle ages.
Famous for his flaming claws that burned scorch marks into church doors, Black Shuck terrorized church goers in the middle ages, attacking them when they knelt to pray. A survivor account by Reverend Abraham Fleming in 1577 describes a typical Black Shuck attack like this:
‘This black dog, or the divel in such a linenesse (God hee knoweth al who worketh all,) running all along down the body of the church with great swiftnesse, and incredible haste, among the people, in a visible fourm and shape, passed between two persons, as they were kneeling uppon their knees, and occupied in prayer as it seemed, wrung the necks of them bothe at one instant clene backward, in somuch that even at a moment where they kneeled, they strangely dyed…”
Strangely dyed indeed….
The very strangeness of these deaths soon became apparent as Black Shuck went from reviled divel to the object of veneration by his survivors – or should I say strange dyers. Soon after a brutal Sunday attack in the middle of a lightning storm, survivors in the town of Bungay began inexplicably to hoist the image of Black Shuck everywhere, even putting him on their coat of arms to declare their allegiance.
And Bungay remains the flaming heart of Black Shuck’s demon wolf legacy. Even today it is said to be the seat of power for at least two different clans. Both Lightning and Shadow Werewolves may be found there at locations bearing signs that look like this —>>>
Just how will the werewolves of Bungay react to the news that Black Shuck’s secret grave has been discovered and his bones exposed to the world? Without a proper re-burial, will there be a full moon resurrection of the demon wolf?
I have contacted several villagers via Skype and Facebook with these questions and more but so far none will comment, clear evidence to me they are living in fear. Or else they are all in on the plan…
We’ll be looking into this one and more all week here at SOS. If you live in Bungay or happen to know somebody who lives there, I hope you will report.
Thanks for keeping on,
