[Synopsis]

Infamous serial tube station murders are cruelly happening in London. The murders are abnormal and unrelated but they all appear to have a similar clue connecting them – a pebble with the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc symbol.

  • The cocooned nymph murder using the ᛗ symbol at Mile End station

  • The burning death murder using the ᚹ symbol at Notting Hill Gate station

  • The eye piercing murder using the ᛏ symbol at Canary Warf station

  • The death by silicone murder using the ᚢ symbol at Oxford Circus station

  • The railway corpse murder using the ᛋ symbol at Bow Road station

  • The dangling remains on the spider web murder using the ᚾ symbol at Tower Hill station

The Tube Map of London

The group U.N.D.E.R. has been recruited by the mysterious 'Rose & Griffins' and organized by the intentioned unknown sponsor, D. L. L. (Daddy-Long-Legs). Princess Gabrielle of Worcester, the maverick of the Windsor family and a big fan of detective mysteries, is the youngest daughter of Prince Howard, The Duke of Worcester. She and her like minded online pals stumble into their detective missions through serendipity. They have abbreviated the group's name to U. N. D. E. R.


They are: Ghostie, the No. 3 ranked hacker and the world's most famous Asian-British hacker; Leslie Moore, a former captain of the Queen's Guard; Natasha Augé, a blind French lady proficient in vocal impersonations, oral language analysis and mind reading; Debbie Oz, an undercover operative working as a royal maid in Kensington Palace, a professional makeover artist and special effects makeup specialist; Elle Doyle, a female detective and the leader of U. N.D. E. R., a character disguised to conceal the true identity of Princess Gabrielle.


While investigating the deadly kidnapping of a high school girl the members of U. N. D. E. R. become coincidentally involved in the New Scotland Yard’s unsolved serial murder cases occurring at multiple tube stations in London.

Six suspects with seven personalities, who is the real tube station serial killer? While U. N. D. E. R. is investigating the murders they find a walking-witch figure hidden in the tube map of London! It seems to be related to a legendary Welsh prose collection, The Mabinogion, from the middle Ages and two child-eating red and white dragons released by the 7-year-old wizard, Merlin……
