Do you know the rat-catcher?

Do you know the rat-catcher?

Barely! He’s guided a search squad under my command through the sewers once, but we didn’t get to talking. I guess he knew the whole enterprise was a complete waste of time as well as we did, so neither of us was in a talkative mood.

Have you heard anything about him, since he disappeared?

The usual nonsense… about him showing up once in while as a werewolf, biting off street cats’ heads…

Don’t you believe them?

The man looks at you with an expression of sarcastic tiredness.
