“In chapter 2 [Drag] of The Diary of Tomahawk, we begin to see the storyline unfold a lot more. Key characters are revealed and the nature of who they are begins to be seen,” states Black Lodge founder and lead guitarist Johnny Royal.  “Tomahawk stumbles into a ritual being conducted by a coven of witches who are a part of The Great Lamia. During the ceremony, the Grand Master of The Great Lamia, Breviculum, is seen invoking the spirit-birth of the demi-god, The Raven.  Tomahawk is given an ancient Akkadian-Sumerian celestial map and is offered the choice of finding out who she really is and where she is descended from.”
