A Scion is Born
In 1937, a bizarre ritual is carried out by Himmler’s Knights of the Black Order as the bones of
Heinrich I are disinterred. At midnight on the anniversary of Heinrich’s death, Himmler worships the king in the crypt of St Servatius. Six years later Himmler carries out human sacrifice in his final desecration of Quedlinburg Cathedral.
René de Bar is picked up by the Gestapo on the streets of Paris and taken to Himmler’s castle at Wewelsburg. What transpires is probably one of the strangest interactions in history as Himmler uses the epic poem of the Parzival to draw his prisoner into an unholy alliance.
The real Templar treasure is discovered under the foundations of the Temple Mount at the time of the Crusades but final control over the Holy Land can only be achieved when all the relics are brought together. The Knights Templar find an extension of their brotherhood in an unexpected place and a covenant formed in hell is formed, under the headship of Baphomet, the Father of Wisdom.
The pieces come together; there is cross and double-cross as Himmler seeks to fortify his position as the war ends. For all involved, the Templar treasure is the coveted prize, but there is a condition attached to its seizure.
