Plot synopsis

The story revolves around a cursed man named Eddie and his demonic curse-to return from the dead over and over again. The curse is always at the expense of whomever happens to Eddie while he’s dead. The injuries that killed Eddie are transferred, and Eddie is resurrected while the person touched him dies. The Damned is set in a prohibition era and involves demonic gang bosses and their families / gangs of demons. While there is a supernatural element to their crimes (such as trafficking in souls), they are most commonly shown committing the usual crimes of prohibition-era gangsters.

Three Days Dead 

The Aligheri and Roarke crime families are coming to a “mutually beneficial” agreement, but when a moderating demon is called to make arrangements for the truce, someone kidnaps him. Eddie is hired by gang boss Alphonse Aligheri to find out what happened to the missing arbiter .
