Tale of my life ain't for the faint.  It ain't no love story or whimsical bemusing.  I's never good at all that.  Mine's of a different sort, of a town starved and hungering for death, of betrayal and deceit of the worst kind-- goes down yar throat like glass but refuses the taking of ya.  A place where blood is paid with blood and trust comes by the tip of a blade.  Mojo's full up of people like me, that's the life of a Scratcher.
