Synopsis for "Twisted"
In 16th Century, rural Japan, after a tornado destroyed a town, the Creeper bonded with the body of a boy named Jakku. Twenty years later, the Creeper accompanied Jakku, heading into a tornado, when a bearer of the Soultaker sword attacked the Creeper, trapping him inside the sword. Inside the Soultaker, the Creeper was trapped with Katana's husband Maseo and a girl named Mona Shard, until breaking out after centuries, vowing to get revenge on the swordswoman. By that time, Katana was using the sword in San Francisco and Creeper found his way to Jack Ryder and bonded threw him into a coffin. Next, the Creeper made his way to a house, where he saw a family, which disgusted him. The Creeper took control of a janitor named Gallagher and had him burn the family to death. The next day, Jack Ryder was alive and reporting on Gallagher, who was accused of burning the family to death. Later that night, the Creeper came to Jack and took over his body. Next, Jack and the Creeper went to a bar, where the latter flirted with another man's girlfriend and ran off with her. Then, he fought against a biker gang, before chasing and taking them down, attracting the attention of the police.
