The Minister's Black Veil
Reverend Hooper was always a simple parson. He lived his life to the best of his abilities and always tried to live a Good life. However, Hooper soon becomes fixated upon the idea of "Secret Sin". Upon his initial fixation, he dons a black veil to represent the "Secret Sin" we all hide within ourselves. This idea consumes his very being and he soon begins to impose his beliefs on everybody else. As his mad obsession grows, a deep, rooted evil manages to attach itself to Hooper... It eats away at his mind, body, and soul... This "Infection" wades, and normalcy begins to creep back into Hooper's already damaged and distorted life.
