Adam Lucius Evans was born with a severe case of Hurler’s Syndrome, also known as gargoylism. It was the result of a scientist performing illegal experiments on his father. The genetic deformity was severe. Luke appeared to have been born half human, half something else. He was raised in a loft room of an old historical church by Father Frederic Harris. Sister Elizabeth was his caretaker and teacher. Over the years Luke grew to become highly intelligent, physically strong, and determined to make a difference in his community, the river district of Chicago. He has the singing voice of an angel yet he must hide his face daily, you would not like what you’d see. Make no mistake; there is a deadly darkness within his countenance. Some will say he is a demon, others will declare him to be an angel. They will all come to know him as the gargoyle. Deep within the inner shadows of Friar Luke’s mind a vicious beast has evolved. It is mysterious, blood thirsty, and a very cunning creature. If Luke is to survive the dark streets of the river district then he must somehow embrace the beast within. Its enormous strength and blinding speed may be all that can keep Luke alive, or it could be his eternal damnation!
