In the cold dead of winter, a trucker crossing from the Yukon Territory into Alaskan Territory is mauled and killed by an unknown creature. A native american tracker named Johnny Graywolf is brought in, to track down the creature. A pencil pusher named Michael Dean is assigned to join him on the assignment, which causes the two to be at odds with one another. The two enter a supposed Wildlife Preserve where the creature had fled, to discover a government facility. Where other creatures where being held against their will by the same corporation that hired Johnny. Pandora Detention Facility, a prison that doesn't exist.
A Nikola Tesla/Dr. Moreau/Dr. Frankenstein-esque scientist named Dr. working in a secret lab in Alaska near the "top of the world" is revealed to be the creator of all of the mythological/folkloric creatures. In the end, he tells Johnny that the creatures regard him as a God and that he will destroy his lab and all of his notes to avoid others from finding it, as well as kill himself. Even though, the scientist does die, he leaves Johnny an encyclopedia of all the creatures he'd ever created. Dr. does not have a god complex, instead he is a neglectful creator. He even thinks humanity is more powerful than god. He's kinda like Tesla's especially with his inventions. Archimedes Heat Ray. H.P. Lovecraft/H.G. Wells/Nikola Tesla
