There was a woman standing by the other side of the doors to the lavishly furnished mansion. She was clad in filthy robes and her long black hair obscured nearly all of her pale face. She reeked of death.
And she was making the strange sobbing sounds, although her arms hung low by her sides. And that's when Kai noticed that her hands terminated in long dagger-like claws. Then he noticed her tongue hanging down, and why her sobbing sounded so strange.
She had no lower jaw.
