The Shadow Wiki

Quote1.png I've been thinking over what you told me, It's given me a new definition of sport, though I always did argue that it wasn't the kill that counted. Hunting big game seems small compared to tracking down criminals. I seem to have moved in on this hunt, so I feel entitled to see it through. Whenever you sight the other Hydra Heads, give me a tallyho. Quote2.png
