"The most famous hero of the story of the New York City underworld is Edward Delaney, alias William Delaney, alias Joseph Marvin, alias Joseph Morris—alias Monk Eastman, the leader of a gang of twelve hundred men.
Those shifting "dodges" (as tedious as a game of masks in which one can never be certain who is who) fail to include the man's true name—if we allow ourselves to believe that there is such a thing as "a man's true name." The fact is, the name given in the Records Division of the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn is Edward Ostermann, later Americanized to Eastman."

We call this bizarre deity Tzeentch, but in fact of all the gods of men and daemons, He has more names and guises than any other. Tzeentch is change, said to personify every mortal's recognition of, and desire and for, change. His face and form shifts and warps from eternity unto eternity. To the hairy savages north of our great Empire, Tzeentch is most commonly known and worshiped as Tchar: the Great Eagle. In the east, the dread horsemen of the Man-Chu, Kuj and Khazags know Tzeentch as Chen Chi-En: Lord of the Shifting Breeze. And it is said that in the hellish jungles south of the Old World, the Changer of ways is known simply as Shunch. Yet whatever the real and whomever the people, Tzeentch is known always as the Great Schemer; a manipulative and politicking god who should be feared as much as He should not be trusted.
