12 (who?)
Mistress of darkness with bright marble eye
Forty-one souls you called here to die
Hearts full of greed, desperation, and fear
Soon to sacrifice all they held dear

The cephalopod who's flesh can change shade
The panther-hawk who's blood stained the glade
The psychic and spiked one fell side by side
What price for the might magic can provide

Amphibious frog man slain by mistake
Snow leopard child who's heart was to break
Mighty dragon born to guard ancient tombs
All were united to face certain doom

Water child, by his people cast out
Polecat and spirit, their minds filled with doubt
Rabbit woman, pursued by hell's forces
They sought powers and cared not the sources

Shape-shifting demon who longed for affection
Red one trapped by a demon infection
Innocent children divided by fate
From violence there rose a current of hate

One set free by medallion of black
One fled to the light but was dragged right back
One crippled on false accusations
Their despair grew with each confrontation

Machine of war driven mad by disease
Weasel so evil he made the air freeze
Woman transformed by powerful spells
Forced to suffer the darkest of hells

Noble demon who raged like a storm
Nightmare spirit given mortal form
Massive dog that devours all in sight
Yet more souls claimed by the circus of fright

Undead wielder of marionettes
Cyborg who failed to realize the threats
Raptor that summons the might of thunder
Were yet to see the weight of their blunder

Angel who fell far from heaven's grace
Kitten who's talons belied her cute face
Wolf of the wind was in his youth was cursed
Into the darkness were their souls immersed

Machine driven mad by voices inside
Creature of ink slain by a mighty tide
Blind tiger with a skull for a head
Sign the red ticket and you're good as dead

Motherly dinosaur not to be spared
Yet given a soul her killer grew scared
Shadow dog fell to the pirate's attack
Once they left home, they could never go back

Many would come, much to their regret
Bound forever in the ringmaster's debt
When the dust settled, two would remain
Both bearing guilt for innocents slain

Rainbow ninja and wraith wielding maid
To the dark one's tune they grudgingly played
One blinded with greed and ambition
One with the hope to bring abolition

Finalists clash and fate is decided
Along which path will we be guided?
Who will win, master or restorer?
What end awaits the Tapestry of Horror?
