Les 7 personnages

  • The Creature

    It is hard to believe, but his giant creature was once a man. Feared since the dawn of time, he is said to be a bloodthirsty monster with a heart of ice and an insatiable appetite.

  • The Devil

    He’s been seen many times in the forest of the gorge. Appearing as a distinguished gentleman, he seduces his victims with tempting proposals that always end in the fiery pits of hell.

  • The Gate

    This Portal separates the everyday world from the realm of the imagination. Only those bold enough to venture through will discover the mysteries of the legendary Coaticook gorge.

  • Thunder

    Through flood and fire, the storm’s power has shaped the fate of Coaticook’s peoples across the ages. The ancients feared what might happen if ever it fell under the control of dark forces.

  • The Fairies

    Playful and mischievous, the fairies of the forest can make your wishes come true. But be warned! Don’t cross these little balls of light, or they will whirl you into a fiery nightmare.

  • The Tree

    This benevolent force keeps watch over the gorge. Legends say that it comes to life at night, playing tricks on unwary humans.

  • The Spirit of the Forest

    The ancient peoples called on this mysterious being to protect them. Rarely seen by humans, it maintains harmony between the creatures and elements of the gorge.

Phrase conclusion
