Over a game of chess the immortal Saint Germaine tells the tale of Quasimodo and the tragic events surrounding the cathedral of Notre Dame to his opponent and author Victor Hugo. Saint Germaine is a being who claims immortality yet has died a thousand deaths. He has traversed the paths of mankind for untold years. He is the purveyor of light in a world slowly being consumed by shadows. He is Saint Germaine and death to him is nothing more than a state of consciousness.
