Cog - with the help of a young woman - gathers ancient religious artifacts which played a major role in human history 2000 years ago. The action shifts from the Far East to Paris, where the French government's security service is also looking for one of the artifacts to breed its own super-soldier and eventually sell the technology. That secret project is located in the Paris catacombs and combines science and sorcery. Some religious orders seek to destroy this project, because it could cast a new light on the true identity of one of Christianity's most sacred icons. Cog must have the artifact to obtain redemption and Spawn wants to stop the madness of it all. These characters and their conflicting agendas eventually collide in Paris under the eye of Mammon, the man-in-white in charge of Hell.
