1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.
Hmm... I get that the other maids think Bernadette incompetent for her clumsiness, but they're not just treating her like she's incompetent; they're treating her like she's actually FILTHY. I wonder what the deal is there.
Also, love the art. Very professional.
@Ryth: It's very simple; Bernadette is the outsider, she's not part of whatever little group or clique those two are part of. She's also meak and weak, which makes her a prime target. They do it to feel superior to someone.
