It begins on a mysterious black train speeding its way to an undisclosed destination in Japan. The train was being used by the Judas Corporation for transportation of its most deadly chemical and biological weapons. One, a nine–year–old girl, possessed paranormal mental abilities which the Judas Corporation hoped to exploit. When she engineered her own escape and ran toward the front of the train, she encountered the second, far more deadly weapon.In a sealed stasis container was Judas’ crowning achievement: a boy whose body contained a monster named Baoh. His slightest touch could disintegrate flesh, and his strength was almost beyond imagining. The little girl sabotaged his holding container to aid her own escape, but she could not have guessed the true nature of what she had set free on the world.
