The Erl-King: The Hunt tells the tale of how Alric Koenig acquired his most faithful servant, Jordan Frasier. The manga begins with Alric spinning a familiar story to his son Ethan of how he saved Jordan from a violent animal attack, but the sanitized and edited tale that Ethan receives is far from the truth. The story takes the reader back in time to the 1920s and Germany's Black Forest. It shows how Alric is not the rich businessman he appears to be in the current age, but is instead the dread Erl-King.  Alric's desire to adapt to the modern world ensnares Jordan in a terrible curse and ensures that the only family his servant will ever have will be the Erl-King's own.

This novella goes hand-in-hand with the manga being created by Mathia Arkoniel.

Ethan Koenig

Ethan is Alric's naive, devoted son.  Since he was a child, he knew that he loved his father too much and in the wrong way. Alric was the ultimate male in his eyes and none could reach him in intelligence nor power nor beauty.  Though he knows his incestuous feelings are wrong, he cannot rid himself of them. As a dread genetic illness closes his world down to his father, his wild-child best friend, Scott Westmore, and the Koenig family's devoted servants, Ethan's obsession for his father only grows even as he begins to suspect that Alric Koenig is far more than what he claims to be.

Alric Koenig

Alric is the seductive, wealthy and powerful owner of E-Core Pharmaceuticals. His son, Ethan, has been stricken with a terrible genetic illness and he is determined to find cure.  Ethan is his greatest treasure and he will do anything to protect and to keep the boy as his own.  Some think he would go so far as to test drugs on Winter Haven's unsuspecting populace. Others think he would take Ethan to bed to make sure no other can gain a place in his son's heart.  But none truly know Alric Koenig, because the face he presents to the modern world is merely a facade.

Jordan Frasier

Jordan is Alric's devoted servant, but he once had a family: a wife and son.  Why he left them, the scars on his cheek, and why came into Alric's service is a tale in itself, whivh is told in The Hunt. He has often been at odds with Scott Westmore, finding the boy's cheeky behavior infuriating yet alluring all the same. He hides a highly sensual nature.  He must use his considerable willpower to suppress his true desires. Scott, however, is a persistent presence and Jordan's control is not eternal.  But would a loss of control lead to greater freedom or yet more fresh hell?
