Winter 1851, in French Lozere county. As the French political system changed brutally after Napoleon III's coup d'etat, the countryside was in turmoil. At the same time an evil lurked over the people. Villages were reported empty of their inhabitants. While your fellow gendarme officers were ordered to defend the newly reborn empire, you were sent alone to investigate these mysterious disappearances. Through your power you can see a fraction of the past in footprints, you must solve the thick mystery surrounding the vanishing of the villagers, which some locals seem to attribute to the return of the Beast of Gevaudan.
