Title: n°17 Immorality's Mercy
Church of Saint-Laurent
Charles: O' Heavenly Father, please guide the life sent to you this day
safely to the kingdom of heaven.
Title: n°17 Immorality's Mercy
Charles: Today is the breaking wheel, is it...? This is my fifth time, but I'm still not used to it...
I'm always dizzy on the mornings of executions...
Charles: These legs...!!!
A beggar child is it...?
Guy: Do not pity us, Monsieur.
This father and son are not beggars.
We won't accept one *sol that isn't warranted.
Asterisk: *A currency used in France until the end of the 18th Century.
1 livre = 20 Sols, 1 sol is worth enough to purchase one loaf of bread.
Charles: ......Pardon me.
Guy: C'mon, wake up, Jack.
It's time for our morning prayer.
my legs hurt, it's hard to stand up...
Charles: ......I think your son most likely...
is suffering from a skeletal disorder from lack of nutrition...
Charles: My house not far from here is running a medical practice.
You're free to do as you choose, but I must insist your son come with me.
I don't ask you for any money...
Guy: Are you still makin' fun of us?!!
Jack: It really hurts, dad...
Guy: Just hold on. I'll give you some perfume to smell.
How long are you gonna stand over there?
I don't wanna look at you! Get the fuck outta here!!!
Somebody: The accused is the carpenter, René Chavannes. On November 17th, he forced his way into the François de Gouillons residence.
For the crime of stealing over 10 items including silverware, candlesticks, and ceramics, he will suffer the death penalty.
Narration: The Breaking Wheel-----
The criminal is tied to a wheel turned on its side and has both of their arms and legs crushed an iron cudgel, after which they are left alone until they die...
It is a cruel method of execution in which a large amount of time passes before death, accompanied with extreme pain.
Cha: I didn't do anything wrong!!!
They wouldn't pay me for my work no matter how long I waited, so I helped myself to some of their belongings!
Why isn't Gouillons the one accused of a crime for shirking his payment?!!!
Guy: That's damn unfair, ain't it? Somebody of the 2nd estate wouldn't get the death penalty cause 'a stealing from nobles,
but when onna us in the 3rd estate steals somethin', our lives are kaput.
I'll bet that guy was never plannin' on paying this guy in the first place. That's just that sorta thing a noble would do.
Guy: ......I came to Paris because I thought there'd be work here,
but it looks like it's pretty tough here, too.
Jack: Dad, look...
Jack: It's Paris's executioner,
the Monsieur de Paris......!!!
Guy: ...That guy!!!
Person: Is there room here, sir?
Jeanne: I'm so glad I made it in time! Now I can meet Charles-Henri Sanson again!!
Guy: Miss nun, is Paris's executioner
r... really that young?
Jeanne: Yes, Monsieur.
Lord Charles is the representative Monsieur de Paris. He's stepped onto the execution platform in place of the 3rd, whom collapsed.
All Parisians know that.
Guy: I touched a freakin' executioner...!!!
Jeanne: And hey, take a good look...
He's so kind, isn't he?
Guy: Stay away! Don't come near me!
You dirty angel of death!!!
Just try to touch me, even a little!
I'll bite that finger right off!!!
Charles: Ah... there's mud on my shoe...
[He acts like he's not even trying. He thinks he's SOOOO cool.]
What the hell!? I can't hear him screaming!
Is he already friggin' unconscious?!
What a cowardly bastard!
Jeanne: Did you understand how he just
used leather straps to kill him, Monsieur?
Jeanne: I realized it from watching the executions every time.
Jeanne: By giving the criminal only a moment of pain, he released him from the long, unbearable pain that would come afterwards.
That is Monsieur Sanson's merciful heart.
Ah, if I ever get executed
I'd want to die by Charles-Henri Sanson's hands...
