The spirits of the vengeful dead are coming to life, Hollow Face told him.
Kilmer had unintentionally awakened the dead. A feeling of anguish came with the souls entering him. He could feel their pain, the torments of thousands of priests who killed themselves in this castle. These were their spirits, those that found no peace in death. Their untimely and violent deaths turned them into the vengeful spirits of the dead. Now awake and materialized, they despised the living. They detested being disturbed and sought to extract their revenge upon the living. He found himself surrounded by scores of spiraling materialized faces that screamed in agony, floating through the room in blue spheres with streaming wispy tails.
