Le Chevalier d'Eon (OT 16+)

Le Chevalier d'Eon is very graphic, and rated OT 16+ for a reason. The pages are covered in gore, and it delves into some very touchy subjects-such as religion and crime. For this reason, this post will remain imageless, and while I thoroughly recommend it,  I also advise caution. If you know you have problems with graphic images, this IS NOT for you.
Paris is terrorized by night, young women, virgins specifically, are disappearing. Every now and then, the police catch up-almost. When they arrive,  they find mutilated bodies, decapitated heads, and other gruesome images. Blood and instruments of torture lie everywhere. And into their hands have been carved the words psalms and palms. Who is behind these bizarre and twisted murders? A string of mad disciples of Christ who call themselves the "poet". As one is caught, another appears. The only person in Paris who can fight these creatures- for as they become more and more possessed, they turn into monsters worthy of Anne Rice, or H.P Lovecraft- is Le Chevalier d'Eon, the Sphinx, or Lia de Beaumont,  a spirit killed by the Poet, who when the time to fight comes, inhabits the body of her brother, d'Eon de Beaumont.  d'Eon works for his Majesty, the King of France. Whenever a new Poet appears, the Poems of the revolution appear in a  mirror image on the body of Princess Sophie, by far the most charming and innocent character in the series, Princess Sophie has lost her ability to speak except for the word "Palm". She communicates through word games.  d'Eon is assisted in his endeavors by a cat, Nell,  and a young man, named Robin.
