What you don’t find out though until you die, is that those same sigils keep your spirit trapped in your body until enough of your skin rots off to destroy the symbols.
This was to be the fate of William, a young exorcist who had been in the business for only a few years. He had been successful in most of his cases, and had become quite renowned in his field. But one fateful night, he encountered an evil spirit he couldn’t defeat. The spirit was too powerful, and it killed him.
But William’s spirit was unable to leave his body, thanks to the sigils tattooed on his skin. He was trapped in his decaying corpse, unable to move or communicate with the living. He was forced to watch as his body slowly rotted away, until eventually the sigils were destroyed and his spirit was finally able to move on.
William’s story has become a cautionary tale among exorcists. They are warned to take extra precautions when dealing with powerful spirits, and to be aware of the consequences of their tattoos. For William, it was too late. But maybe his story can help others avoid his fate.
