Chester was late to his mission. Only by a few minutes, but because of him, seven other angels fell that night, in the House of Coates tavern.
The tavern exploded under the massive reality-shifting pressures, left was right, up was down, water turned to gas, air to fire. Chaos broke out and in the remains of the tavern, three fallen angels, now Unchained demons, found each other and fled. The three of them still thought of themselves as their Cover identities.
Chester, the spark that lit the fuse, was a long-range food trucker, delivering breadstuffs via his semi. But due to being late, he didn’t arrive in time to play his part in the death of Ethan Booths.
Hector was a member of a blues duo with his partner Tony. They were Shields, sent to protect a few individuals from the shooting that was about to happen. The lack of any danger caused Tony to Fall first and Hector, loyal friend that he is, followed Tony. In the madness caused by the eight-fold Fall, Tony vanished and Hector found himself alone.
Tanner, the punk kid and burglar was supposed to stick the joint up, but when the moment came for him to be stopped….he quite simply wasn’t. Of the three Demons, Tanner is the one most alarmed by their current situation, and most eager to return to the Machine.
The three demons managed to avoid the investigating mortal and immortal law enforcement. Though they were pulled over by a suspicious highway patrolman who didn’t seem to be human, they bluffed their way past him and broke into an Amish furniture warehouse where they rested and regrouped.
