Serpino shrugged off his traveling cloak and handed it to one of his ghoulish assistants, his amber eyes twinkled with a devilish delight as he crossed the floor of his lab to the pair of medical tables centered at the far end of the room. This place was one of his many hidden labs he had scattered over the Empire. This one was in the Merchant section of Nuln, he had come here since this is the closest place he ordered his fell bats to take the corpses.

They where both present on the medical tables, the local staff he had infiltrated into the city sewers having prepared it for him. Serpino grinned with delight as he accepted a pair of clean surgical gloves and a surgical smock. Large test tubes, enough to contain a full grown man, where present in the corners of the lab. They glowed with red liquids and shadowy, inhuman shapes writhed in them. He swept his gaze over them

In a connecting room a warp-energy generator was housed that could power the lab’s devices with ease. In another nearby room held the quarters for his servants, in another, larger room, held his sleeping quarters. He walked over to a surgical table and made a great show of selecting the proper tools, glow-orbs of magic where suspended from the ceiling, casting a harsh glare over the bodies.

Sighing with pleasure he picked up his chosen tools, a pair of nasty looking scalpels. He turned to his ghoul men prepared the bodies for surgery.

‘’Master Serpino,’’ one of his ghoul men squeaked. ‘’Where is Ulrona and Calverni?’’ it asked.

‘’Oh, dead I suppose,’’ Serpino asked offhandedly. ‘’Don’t worry, I’ll make a new pair.’’ he assured the ghoul man as it scampered away.

He walked over to the sterile metal tables and looked down at his test subjects. They where the naked headless corpse of a woman and that of a mutilated young boy.

Both had died to head injuries, the boy’s skull being cloven in half. However, aside form some ,filth, they where both quite intact, clearly rotting had not sent in yet, however rigor mortis had.

Serpino smiled with delight. ‘’And now, I learn your secrets’’ he purred, putting on his surgical gloves with a flourish and running his hands over the naked carcass of the young boy, sending is hand over the stretched ribs and waxen skin then down to his genitals.

Serpino shivered in pleasure as he did the same to the dead she-wolf. His finger caressed every inch of her corpse. From her sagging breasts to her thatch of pubic hair, down to her dirty toes to her severed neck.

‘’And now, we begin’’ Serpino said as he made an incision in her stomach.

Serpino glanced in delight as he watched the werewolf tissue sample being dropped carefully in a vat of water. This water had shavings of silver within it. He simply had to test this allergy. The flesh started to smoke as it hit the shallow vat, steam soon came form the thing as Serpino eagerly extracted it and brought it over to his observation microscope. His own scope was specially crafted and enchanted by himself.

He glanced in wonder at the changes to the werewolf flesh, noting the chemical and magical reactions to it. Grinning he went also to nine tubes on the end of the room. Each tube was colored for the winds of magic, each one was a specially made device that channeled the winds of magical artificially. Seprino had built them from a skaven design.

Serpino glanced at each magical eager and sensor, built in a haphazard and somewhat confusing matter. His brilliant mind absorbed the information like a sponge. Serpino was already imagining the possibilities. It had only been about ten hours so far and he already understood the basics of the werewolf physiology, indeed these bodies where a treasure trove of secrets, however he was barely even getting started yet.

But he knew that only dead bodies could reveal so much, he could only preserve corpses for so long. Eventually the bodies would rot away and he would lose his specimens. He had already taken blood and tissue samples, but they would eventually degrade too, but at a slower pace. He stripped off his bloodied surgical gloves and replaced them with a fresh pair long ago. He sighed and toughed his circlet, pushing it back into it’s proper position. ‘’Oh what to do’’ he glace up.

The bodies of the werewolves where butchered, taken apart, the woman’s body was open and the flaps of her skin pulled back to reveal the empty void where he had already extracted her internal organs.

Ghoul mean rank back and forth, carrying organs in sealed containers, along with other tools. They chattered and scampered out of his way as Seprino slowly walked to the bodies. He glanced up, the young boy was missing all of his limbs and suspended on a meathook. He had already removed his eyes and genitals, trying to find if the werewolves reproduced in the conventional way, and how their eyes worked.

‘’Oh you to, you guys are such teases’’ he chuckled in a friendly tone. ‘’You’ve got secrets, but I know you eventually with have no more secrets to give.’’ He signed, walking around the room, pacing.

His ghoul men hurried out of his way as he paced. Then he stopped, as if a light bulb had been lit above his head.

‘’Oh I know’’ he said eagerly, walking over to the corpses. He began tapping his finger on the female corpse. ‘’You know, your living counterparts might hold more information for me’’ he addressed them jovially.

‘’Yes, that’s it, I need a living specimen, only then can perfection be achieved.’’
