CARDINAL NICCOLO ORSINI
OFFICE OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
FEBBRUARY 10, 1954
I write to you regarding a most urgent matter. Your service has been invaluable to the Brotherhood of Sleep for theses past years, and your valiant contributions in Turkey, Egypt, and South America have been shining examples to your fellow defenders. I must request your assistance again on what may be the most important mission of your years of service. The Brotherhood has discovered the location of a relic most dire which could spell Armageddon if allowed to fall into the hands of evil men. This triptych has eluded the Holy Inquisition and the Brotherhood of Sleep for centuries, but now it has surfaced in the small American town of DuBois, Pennsylvania.
You are to report immediately to the Vatican for a complete briefing. Cardinal Rudorff will provide you with the means to acquire the relic, as well as, providing a holy weapon that may be used to destroy the blasphemous thing. It is imperative that the relic be kept from those who would awaken that which sleeps within. That Evil which waits to prepare the Whore’s womb for the Star Seed that shall spawn the Beast. All my prayers go with you and I hope for the success of your mission.
– Cardinal Orsini
