Overview

Out in a lonely cabin, a man is going slowly mad, as imagined demons toy with him. During the day when the madness lessens, he summons up the courage to end his terror, but each day he comes back empty handed. As the days pass, he grows more frightened and insane, until one night he ends his life(under review) to spare himself from the horrors. Each day he hunts for the lair. Each night they hunt for him.

He is searching for a vitally important piece of equipment/wild plant and cannot return without it.

During the war, his child was killed by a falling gargoyle. James (euthanised/left?) them, and holds himself responsible, though the memory is repressed. One night, James encounters a gargoyle and he is overcome with terror, though he knows not why.
