"Three days. And now the principal is fifteen percent higher. And I would very much like to spend some time with your new wife."

The Whitwells

Melissa Whitwell was the wife of an associate of the Templar Thaddeus Gift, active in London during the early 20th century.

In 1927, Melissa's husband met with Gift in the Café de Paris, a nightclub, to discuss about the heavy debts that the man owned to the Templar. Gift threatened Whitwell, using the reputation of his Order, but eventually gave him a delay in exchange for some "quality time" with Melissa. However, as Whitwell was introducing his young wife to Gift, the Grand Master fled, chased and later killed by the Black Cross for tarnishing the good name of the Templar Order.
