Alone in the Dark 2

The Role of Shorty Leg

This is the text of a book that is found on the ground in the garden maze in Alone in the Dark II. This is a indication that Carnby would meet Shorty Leg as the first boss.



None may know the name Jeremiah Johnson Tecker, but all fear Shorty Leg, born at Cork. He was 14 years old when he freed himself from the Shark's manacles, turned two cannons loaded with grapeshot at the
captain's cabin and fired. The recoil whipped off one of his legs.

In 1717, he was found and brought aboard the Jolly Roger by One Eyed Jack, after drifting for two weeks on a makeshift raft.

Using a steel cooking pot and the sun's rays, he had taken the salt from the sea water, thus having water to drink. He knocked the fish on the head with his peg-leg. Thereafter, it became his weapon of choice.

Taken on as ship's surgeon.

Alone in the Dark 2

It is Christmas of 1924, three months after Alone in the Dark. "Supernatural Private Eye" Edward Carnby and his partner Ted Stryker are investigating the kidnapping of young Grace Saunders. The trail of clues leads to an old mansion named "Hell's Kitchen" - the home of an infamous gangster boss and his gang. Edward decides to pick up the trail when he learns of Ted's disappearance in the mansion. Unfortunately, Edward soon finds out that Ted has been murdered.

Carnby eventually finds out that the mobsters are the corporeal forms of the spirits of pirates that plundered the sea hundreds of years ago, the lot having sold their souls in exchange for eternal life through voodoo magic. Fighting his way into the house and ultimately onto a pirate ship hidden in the cliff on which Jack's house is built, Edward must survive, discover the secret of the pirates' apparent immortality, rescue little Grace, and find out why the pirates are so interested in her.
