Which is a murder mystery with features magical transforming creatures. It begins when the chief detective on the case is almost murdered by someone just was magical as the detective.
Then when 2 police officers are killed and a false target named Marian is almost killed the detective helps her with their fighting skill.
Later an assembly of these magical creatures called “The Gifted” they talk about events of the previous night, which brings the total of killed up to 38.
After using spear guns provided by The Gifted, they think they have finally killed the murderer. But it turns out they were wrong and the true murderer turns out to be a Vampire.
