Prologue My name is Dainel Chuffleigh. A trainee Police officer, I've been assigned my first case. There's been two abductions recently- linked only by the last place they were seen. The (Quite appropriately named) Black Castle. Not showing my nerves, I step up to the door and, glancing at the wall torches, enter the building. The Seemingly popular Black theme continued, two floor-based torches cast a warm but weird glow over the strangely small room and its lone bookcase. Examining its dust-covered books, I reach out to investigate an interesting-looking tome... *Click*

The Story Herr Cule Poyroe at your service.
Ah, ja, ze castle case.
Ja, I am familiar wiz it.
Three People? Zis is vurth investgating.
Ja. I will start at vunce. (It's not as if I've got anything better to do...)
Zis case vill surely test my intuition and detectoring abilities. But no case is unachievable for Herr Cule Poyroe! (At least, I've solved the other case I've been given...) Herr Cule Poyroe is on ze case! Zis is most irregular. Firstly, it is noon, and secondly ze lightning is not starting in ze sky, it is starting only about fifty metres above ze castle. I detect some foul play afoot here. What is ziz? Ziz is... Standard issue for police officers (Even though it is useless - everyone knows that witches don't exist!)... Daniel Chuffliegh must have disappeared near ziz place! When he is found, I vill return ziz to him. Meanwhile, I shall inspect zis bookcase for clues for my trained eye. Hmm... I see. Zis book here is fascinating. It is not free to move but is instead attached to ze bookcase... a-HA! A secret entrance! A passageway, lit only by ze flames above me? This is intriguing... and slightly scary. But I shall persevere! Herr Cule Poyroe falters not in ze face of difficulty! "Ahaha..."

What? Zat voice... where is it coming from?
"I've been expecting you, Herr Cule Poyroe..."
"I shall have great use for you, but for now..."

What? What's happening to me? What is ziz? NOOOOooooo...
Some time later... Ughh... my head... huh? Vere am I? Vot is ziz place? Vy can't I move? "It is time for us to begin... ahahahaha!"
"But how shall we do it? We could try... the Obstacle course of impending Doom!" "Or perhaps the Electrololisis chamber of forgetfulness!" "But no... we shall try you with the brainwasheriser first. Come."

But I can't move!

"Oh, that won't be a problem... ahahah..."
"First, however... as befits an evil genius, I shall explain my plan in meticulous detail." "Two of my other victims, both brainwashed by my magical Helmets." "Another victim... and your helmet. Ahahaha!" "With you, my fourth victim brainwashed and captured, I will be able to rule the whole world as Ella Ville, The Wicked Witch of all of the compass directions!"

(Hang on, She's a Witch? What can I do about it? Can I do ANYTHING about it to stop her?)
"Aha, Ahahaha, AhahahahHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHhh..."


"What? No..."


Aha! Through my patient dectectorism I have uncovered ze culprit! It is... Lorraine Chuffleigh? But... vy did you capture your husband? And these other people for zat matter?
"They are my Family, and they insulted me most unhonourably! They laughed at my ambition to be the most powerful person in the world, and I would have been so if it wasn't for your meddling!"

But... Daniel was assigned zis case by chance!

"Hah, Do you really think so? Then you are dimmer than my first impressions told me."
Then vy did you attempt to capture me?

"Four is a more magically powerful number than three, you know."

But vy ME specifically?
"You misunderstand me. I didn't want you specifically. Anyone would have worked. They'd have probably have been better too."

"But that is besides the point! I shall rise up again and be more powerful than you can imagine! Ahahahah. AHAHAHAHA..."

"No. You Will Not."
"What?!? No..." "You haven't heard the last from meee..."

... Who are you?

"Lorraine's Mother. I Had An Inkling She Would Be Behind This, But I Had To Wait 'Til Somebody Else Entered So That I Could Sneak In."
Then vy did she not try to capture you?

"She Knew I Was Too Powerful For Her To Match Me, So She Left Me Alone."
"But Back To The Point. We Must Now Release The Other People She Captured."

"Oh, It's A Simple Spell..."
"Purgomagnus!" "Er... There May Be One Or Two Side Effects..."

But apart from zat, ze case is solved?

...Ja, having read your application, I'm pleased to say zat you, Daniel, are ze most qualified person for ze post of my assistant- ze post of Supernatural and Magic Assistant Police Officer. Although zis is a new post for me too, I have learned much already. You must always wear a suit with gloves when investigating ze supernatural...


Because I do it, and I am now your superior officer. Herr Cule Poyroe, Supernatural and Magic Police Officer.
The End!

Well, He isn't meant to be exactly the same, but I tried to get him fairly similar.
On a side note, sorry about the qualtiy of the pictures- I forgot to change the camera settings to the best Quality until I was halfway through making the story.
