While slaughtering down a CIA facility,

Cordell discovered Herbert West's existence and experiments.

Cordell wanted to meet the guy, he started the search for him.

And finding people was his job.


After Cordell found West,

he needed to persuade him to give him what he always dreamed of.

Cordell wanted a new healthy body, a perfect one.

Surprisingly, West appeared to be rather enthusiastic.

The fact is Cordell was very efficient at finding... material.

And such assistant was so valuable to West!

The best part: he has an undead and immortal guinea pig!

So great to experiment nanoplasma transfer.

Such a strange alliance, but how long could that last?

Cordell began to wonder if the scientist wasn't using him.
