The premise was simple. Catherine Chandler (Linda Hamilton), a lawyer, is abducted, beaten, slashed and left to die in Central Park. She is then rescued by Vincent (Creator/RonPerlman), a leonine member of [[WainscotSociety a secret community of outcasts living in tunnels under the city]] ("The World Below").
