Sometime ago, in a rural town, 5 murdered boys were found disembowled and laid out in a field. For some unknown reason, four of the five boy's eyes were torn out with dead sunflowers placed in their place. A note was found in the victim's hand who had retained his eyes saying "These murders represent the true evil you all refuse to see".
When word of the murders got out, the press dubbed these five children "The Sunflower Dead". No assailant was ever brought to justice in this case. After some time, strange occurances began happening where people would find members of their community horrifically murdered with freshly cut sunflowers placed over their eyes.
The lore began that these 5 boys, due to the swelling energy leftover from their own brutal death, came back to avenge all those who are purveyors are true evil.
These five undead vigilantes are on a mission to destroy evil with evil. They are summoned by the energy of those whose innocence is in jeopardy due to the acts of the depraved. The end game of these undead souls, through their own horrific acts, is finding their peace that was thrown into a tailspin at the moment of their own untimley murders.
Unknowingly, these undead vigalantes are a piece of an ongoing Universal Rapture to cleanse the world of its original sin. Their reward for what seems like an unending sentence of walking the earth in limbo, ridding the world of evil doers, leads them to a confrontation with not only who committed their murders but why.
It is at this moment that these five are finally given a chance at the true peace that was stolen from them so long ago...
