Desperation set in as the demons descended. Without hesitation, Rupert muttered something in Latin, falling back on the pavement as a shockwave tore the beasts apart.

A figure emerged from the shadows. “Quite a talent you’ve got, mate. Name’s Ethan.”

“Rupert,” he gasped, feeling lightheaded.

“Oh, I think Ripper’s better.”
