Bishop Laud’s crusade is to "prosecute to death" those he considers traitors to England. He hires Drew to act as his minion in this. Drew meets untold people in his "profession,"many of whom befriend him and many of whom he betrays. He is shaken by this since he's really come to like some of them. They feed him, and trust him, and love him and he in turn, turns them in. They then become branded - physically - on the face - both cheeks.

Betrayal. Heroism. Trust. Sick Entertainment. Persecution. Prosecution. Murder. Control. Execution. Done in the name of religion.
