The Supernal Sisters: A Paranormal Mystery in Victorian Edinburgh

The Scotsman has published the seventh chapter of its new serial, The Supernal Sisters, a historical mystery with a paranormal twist. The serial follows the adventures of Edward Kane, a young advocate who gets involved in a series of mysterious and supernatural events in Edinburgh in the late 19th century. The serial is written by Ian Rankin, the bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus novels.

Chapter 7: ‘Almost Like a Real Gentleman’

The seventh chapter of the serial, titled ‘Almost Like a Real Gentleman’, continues the story of Edward Kane and his friend and colleague, Collins, as they investigate the mysterious death of a young woman named Mary Ann, who was found with a strange mark on her neck. The chapter also introduces a new character, Dr. Jekyll, a renowned scientist and philanthropist who offers to help Kane and Collins with their inquiry.

The chapter begins with Kane and Collins visiting Dr. Jekyll’s laboratory, where they are shown some of his experiments and inventions. Dr. Jekyll explains that he is interested in the duality of human nature, and that he has been working on a formula that can separate the good and evil aspects of a person. He also reveals that he has a connection to Mary Ann, as she was one of his patients at his charitable clinic. He says that he treated her for a blood disorder, and that he suspects that she was killed by a vampire.

Kane and Collins are skeptical of Dr. Jekyll’s theory, but they agree to work with him to find out more about Mary Ann’s life and death. They decide to visit her lodgings, where they find some clues that suggest that she was involved in a secret society called the Supernal Sisters, a group of women who claim to have supernatural powers and abilities. They also find a letter from a mysterious man named Mr. Hyde, who invites Mary Ann to meet him at a certain address.

Kane and Collins decide to follow the lead and go to the address, where they find a rundown building that seems to be a den of vice and crime. They are attacked by some thugs, but they manage to fight them off and enter the building. There, they find a room where Mr. Hyde is waiting for them. He is a hideous and deformed man, who claims to be Dr. Jekyll’s alter ego. He says that he is the one who killed Mary Ann, and that he plans to kill Kane and Collins as well. He also says that he is not a vampire, but something worse: a product of Dr. Jekyll’s formula, which unleashes the evil side of a person.

Kane and Collins are shocked and horrified by Mr. Hyde’s revelation, and they try to escape from him. However, Mr. Hyde is stronger and faster than them, and he catches up with them. He is about to kill them, when Dr. Jekyll arrives and intervenes. He says that he has been tracking Mr. Hyde, and that he has come to stop him. He says that he regrets creating Mr. Hyde, and that he wants to end his existence. He also says that he has a way to reverse the formula, and that he needs to inject Mr. Hyde with it.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde engage in a fierce struggle, while Kane and Collins watch in awe. Dr. Jekyll manages to inject Mr. Hyde with the antidote, but not before Mr. Hyde stabs him with a knife. Mr. Hyde then collapses and transforms back into Dr. Jekyll, who is mortally wounded. Dr. Jekyll asks Kane and Collins to forgive him for his sins, and to destroy his formula and his notes. He also asks them to keep his secret, and to protect the Supernal Sisters, who he says are in danger from a greater evil. He then dies in their arms.

The chapter ends with Kane and Collins leaving the building, carrying Dr. Jekyll’s body and his papers. They are shocked and saddened by what they have witnessed, and they wonder what to do next. They also wonder what the greater evil is, and who the Supernal Sisters are.
