On a night that must be forgotten, Father Bernardo did the unthinkable, using the Napoleonic invasion of Portugal to fulfill a terrible mission for his Queen. But, upon arriving in Rio de Janeiro in 1810, he discovers the mad queen, the kingdom in the hands of a careless prince and a court on the brink of war. Forced to adapt to life in the new colony and capital of the Kingdom of Portugal, Bernardo stumbles upon the supernatural secrets of indigenous, African and European cultures living in the shadows of Brazil.

Laicus brings a reinterpretation of Brazilian myths in a horror guise with inspirations from HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu Myths, brought to an important moment in the country's history: the arrival of the Portuguese Royal Family.
