Heinrich soon meets the resurrected Gretchen, and she is determined to stop the vengeful witches from wreaking havoc on the world. The pair soon form a contract: If Heinrich can safely escort her to a certain magical location, she will remove the curse of immortality from him. But standing in their way are several foes that are packing a grudge against Heinrich for executing them years early, and waiting in the wings is the mastermind behind everything, Dr. Faust.

Another, a man named Heinrich, was once an executioner, performing his grim task in the darkest days of the witch hunts. As such, he wound up cursed with immortality. To atone for his deeds, he enters into a blood contract, the Knight's Contract, with Gretchen, sworn to protect her. In return, he will be released from his suffering once their task is complete.
It is the Dark Ages, and the plague has devastated Europe. The witches, women who are blessed with supernatural powers and long lives, have been blamed for the plague although they've constantly helped people. During an execution of one witch, a curse is let loose on the executioner via a witch's spilled blood. A hundred years later, we meet Heinrich, the same executioner who is now blessed and cursed with the inability to die. On his travels, he meets the same witch who had cursed him, and the duo enters into a contract. If Heinrich can help Gretchen stop the other resurrected witches from wreaking havoc on the world, he can have his mortality back.
A century later, the task of completing the Homonculus was done so by Paracelsus's own apprentice who was Minukelsis. This allowed Gretchen to be restored as a young woman whereupon she intended to kill her fellow witches who had become evil and filled with raqe over how mankind had treated them. At this time, Straeggle and her sisters had allied with Faust where they spread the Black Plague around settlements as well as animated the bodies of the dead to serve them in spreading terror. Gretchen sent Minukelsis to find her a champion whilst she battled Straeggle which led to Hofmann to arrive on their battlefield. Recognising the executioner despite his age and scars, she quickly enlisted his aid in slaying Straeggle and putting her soul at peace. Afterwards, she revealed to Hofmann that Straeggle and herself were the witches he had executed a century ago. However, she intended to kill her evil comrades and wanted his aid; in exchange, she would remove the curse on his soul thus allowing him to become mortal again. To bind their agreement, she formed a contract created by blood which placed Hofmann as Gretchen's knight, companion and protector with them sharing their enemies. They later travelled to the Witch's mountain at Brocken as part of their quest where Gretchen revealed how she had been resurrected as well as her mission to her champion. In the snow covered tops, she were confronted by Trude who was another of Gretchen's sisters that attempted to entice the witch into joining them but Gretchen refused leading to a battle with her forces. During this time, she revealed to Heinrich that her sisters were once peaceful being who did not deserve execution but were now the very monsters the mortal world feared from them. Minukelsis arrived during their quest which forced Gretchen and Hofmann to save him from Trude's tree monsters whereupon he gave her a bracelet containing the might of Enoch's Hammer.
She followed the Witch's Code and fought for peace as well as harmony which meant she fell into battle against her former comrades after they turned evil. The Code itself simply stated "As it harms none, do as thou will" which meant that Gretchen could not stand idly by and allow other witches to seek their revenge thus it led to her allying with her own executioner as well as aiding the inhabitants of a town that had her killed. In addition, she honored the contract between herself and her knight which meant his enemies became her own. Furthermore, she always sought to protect her disciples such as Minukelsis who referred to her as the Grandmaster.
20 - The flying monster lady swoops around the screen spouting nonsense about hating humans and the plague is what they deserve. Gretchen argues and you get the impression they know each other. Gretchen eventually refers to her as Stragelle (pronounced stRAYgle). This name seems to have meaning but I don't know what it is. Stragelle says that the warrior will not kill her "again" and that she will get rid of him now, and Gretchen while she's at it. She flies into the air and casts a spell. Giant black armored knights appear around the area and move in to attack.
56 - It takes me about 8 tries and 10 minutes to finally get the QTE sequence right. I kept screwing up at the same point where I thought I was supposed to push the left stick up, but it wanted me to push it up repeatedly. Stupid. The sad part is that the final killing sequence is really cool. You jump on the beasts back. Then Gretchen unleashes a spell that creates an ethereal guillotine. You then grapple the beasts head inside the guillotine and Gretchen releases it chopping its head off. It ruins it when you have to see the same spell cast 8 times before you finish the sequence. Uggg, why do developers do this? At the end of the level, Gretchen asks Heinrich to kneel before her and she recites a ritual that bonds him to her. He is now her Knight Protector in a contract that links their vitality and power. Thus the name of the game.
On or about December 10 or 12, 1936, the Colorado Motor Sales Company was engaged in the business of selling Graham automobiles at the city of Pasadena, California. The sales force was in charge of one H. A. Merrill, as sales manager. On the floor for exhibition and sale was a Graham coupe, serial number 120014, engine number 115182, which is the hapless corpus of the devious adventures hereinafter noted. On or about the date indicated, one Kenneth H. Knights went to the sales room of the Colorado Motor Sales Company with the view of purchasing a car. He examined and was pleased with the described coupe. Mr. Knights being in need of financial aid in consummating his purchase, went to the Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association and arranged for a loan of $754.21. The bank approved his application and advanced the money in the following manner: A conditional sales contract was drawn and executed wherein Knights was [45 Cal. App. 2d 323] named as purchaser, and Colorado Motor Sales Company as seller, describing the coupe and reciting the usual provision of reservation of title in the seller until payment made. The Colorado Motor Sales Company then executed an assignment of the contract to the bank, coupled with a warranty of title. The warranty recites that the Colorado Motor Sales Company has the right to make the assignment and that the coupe is free from liens and/or incumbrances. The contract, assignment and warranty, having been duly executed, were delivered to the bank which thereupon issued its sight draft for $754.21 and on December 23, 1936, the money was paid to the Colorado Motor Sales Company. The coupe was delivered to Knights who was advised by the Colorado Motor Sales Company that his license and registration slip would come through the mail.
At the trial it was stipulated by the attorneys of record that in this transaction Knights and the bank acted in the best of good faith and had no actual knowledge of any prior liens or incumbrances on the coupe or any claims adverse to the title then transferred. So far, we have a simple transaction of a contract of purchase and sale, financed by a banking institution acting within the proper scope of its legitimate business. At this point simplicity departs.
It further appears that on November 28, 1936, Fairbanks-Fee, Inc., entered into a financing agreement whereby Seaboard Finance Company would finance and floor automobiles for it under a trust receipt, and on that date a statement of trust receipt financing was executed by these last two named companies which was immediately forwarded to the Secretary of State of California. This statement makes no mention of Colorado Motor Sales Company, the fictitious name under which Fairbanks-Fee, Inc., was operating at that time, and whose contract with the buyer (Knights) the Colorado Motor Sales Company assigned to the bank. At about the same time that the trust receipt was executed the Commercial Discount Company endorsed and delivered to the Seaboard Finance Company the ownership certificate of the coupe. The Seaboard Finance Company thereafter held such certificate which was at no time transferred into its name in the office of the Motor Vehicle Department. The Seaboard Finance Company was the fictitious name and style under which National Seaboard Corporation, a corporation, was doing a financing business. Throughout these various transactions the coupe stood innocently on the sales floor of Colorado Motor Sales Company until it was delivered to Knights under his executory contract as aforesaid. 041b061a72
