Title: "Ego non baptizo te in nomine patris, sed in nomine diaboli!" deliriously howled Ahab, as the malignant iron scorchingly devoured the baptismal blood.

  1. Ahab's quote, in Latin, means " I baptize you not in the name of the Father, but in the name of the devil."

    Also, the omission of Ahab's scar was intentional and purely for aesthetic reasons. I just liked the way this one looked better without the scar. So that's what I did.
