Ritual Inconvenience

Thanatos eyed his disciples with a disbelieving stare, “So, let me see if I understand. The ritual to transfer my consciousness was not entirely successful? The villagers destroyed my new host body before you were able to complete the process? And this…this is all you were able to salvage of it?”

He flicked his gaze downward to the partial human skull resting on the outstretched hands of a trembling servant.

He sighed. “Very well. In time, perhaps I will excuse your incompetence. Now, please explain this business of ‘having to make use of the only viable host in close proximity’?”
