  • Madge, after the remorseless entropy curse is redirected at her.

    • Considering what that demonic killer was... well, see the Ghost Story section below.

The sheep jerks in a sharp twitch of surprise, while the shephard holds it gently down. It smells blood and stirs more. Then the animal quiets again under the shepherd's hand. It bleeds. ...
  • In the first battle with the Black Court vampires, two of them start feeding off Lara by chewing holes in her breasts. Nausea Fuel and terrifying.
