Prologue: Introducing A Subject

Before writing this, I would like to state quite clearly that this is not a biography, by any stretch of the imagination.

Indeed, if anything this is a compilation of speculations; theories and insights that attempt to dive into the psych of one of the most brilliant criminals the world has ever known. Piece by piece, it forms a possible history behind a inconceivable mind, based only upon small hints and very few facts given by the few who knew the individual on any level, or by innocuous comments made by the person himself.

As a whole, nothing in this report should be taken as undeniable truth at first glance, but rather the musings and imagination of a writer intrigued… inspired, some might say, by an existence so far from what any may regard as ‘human.’

Understanding this, I can only hope that the following words do justice to the character of and behind the subject, giving him a depth and identity not immediately perceived.

With that out of the way, I present to you the story of one Beyond Birthday.

A/N: Short, I know, but that's why I'm posting it with the first chapter. Hope it's interesting!

Reviews are wonderful.
