Holy Fire

Sometimes cities burn down, some more often than others, Neuss at the Rhine river is one of those that burn down alot.
Since its prestigious cathedral was first erected, roughly once every hundred years, Neuss falls victim to fire. Sometimes started by Burgundian looters, sometimes by French cannons, sometimes, appearantly, by god’s sheer will.

The guardian and name father of that cathedral, Saint Quirin, was a jailor and torturer for the roman empire until he betrayed everyone and supported the christian terrorists, even dragging his baby daughter into the revolt.
Some belief that his body was burned after decapitation by the glorious Hadrian and the cennial fires are the revenge of his savage soul that wants to free his mortal bones, which are still being kept and on show in this very cathedral.
