The strange case of father Angelo Fantoni and Incident #27

Ok, what the heck, I'll submit something. I just had to think how to incorporate an Italian figure for the Halloween bash. First a bit of backstory:

Details of ‘incident #27' are murky due to Vatican secrecy, but what is known is as follows:

In 1941, after the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia, the Italian army occupied large portions of the country, including Slovenia. Partisan attacks were common and large numbers of Italian soldiers were garrisoned in the country.

In September 1943, a string of attacks against a local Italian garrison in a hamlet located in a heavily wooded area in southern Slovenia were particularly brutal. The attacks were always at night and the soldiers were always alone when killed. The bodies were desecrated and partially eaten.

At first, partisans were suspected but standard anti-partisan tactics failed and the killings continued. Details are cloudy but a supernatural connection was quickly established by a local catholic priest.

Through a circuitous route, the Vatican was contacted and they agreed to send Father Angelo Fantoni to investigate. Father Fantoni was a senior exorcist of Vatican City.

Father Fantoni was accompanied by a small number of elite ‘Nembo’ paratroops and they journeyed to the secluded hamlet. Fantoni was geared in a modified Nembo uniform and was rumored to carry the femur of a saint, among other holy trinkets. Father Fantoni immediately evacuated all the remaining residents of the town, including the original Italian garrison, which was sent to a neighboring village

The events that transpired in the town are not clear, but nine days later Father Fantoni walked out of the town and appeared at the neighboring village. His appearance shocked the commander of the Italian garrison. His jet black hair was now snow white, his face gaunt and he had deep cuts and bite marks over his body.

When asked about his ‘Nembo’ companions, he told the commander they were all dead. He ordered the commander to return to the village and burn it to the ground and to sow the fields with salt.

The village’s name was subsequently stricken from any maps and the occurrence is now only known as Incident #27 in the Vatican archives.

Father Fantoni never publicly spoke about the events that transpired in the Slovenian village. He died in 1992.















Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween!

Christopher Lee as an Italian paratrooper exorcist! Just when you think you've seen everything in 1/6th, someone comes up with another imaginative figure.

Great job, and great story.
