Chris was now heavily sedated and locked up for the night. Bishop decided that playtime was over and he wanted to end Chris and take his life and soul. Chris was a sinner but not a horrible man at all. Bishop wanted to ensure he killed Chris while he was full of all his sin and the main purpose of this slimy demon was that Mr. Uptown did not repent of his sins to the Lord God in Heaven through Jesus.
All Chris had to do was call on God and he would have been spared, as Bishop could not process the soul if forgiveness was asked for in earnest. Chris was not up to the task, however, and he told Bishop he wanted to be his sidekick and bring innocent humans to him and help take souls. "Come with me, Prince Chris", Bishop gently let out and Chris took his hand. The two men morphed together and Chris emerged looking bigger and he now had sharp teeth and long claws.
