To Fall and be Free" is a short film that follows the angel, Samael Morningstar, as he becomes increasingly frustrated with his desk job monitoring Eden. The website www.Pandeminc.com bridges the gap between the film and present day, and finds Samael Morningstar the CEO of his own "liberation bureau, Pan-Dem Inc. The webcomic, "Pandemonium", is a prophecy from Pan-Dem's prophecy department and details the events through which Jeff and Cthulhu (Pan-Dem employees) accidentally set the apocalypse in motion due to some misfiled paperwork.
