OriginsEdit

Pied PiperEdit

The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a legend concerning the departure or death of a great number of children from the town of Hamelin, describing a piper leading the children away from the town never to return.

The story may reflect a historical event in which Hamelin lost its children. Theories have been proposed suggesting that the Pied Piper is a symbol of the children's death by plague or catastrophe. Other theories liken him to figures like Nicholas of Cologne, who is said to have lured away a great number of children on a disastrous Children's Crusade.

Somehow, the pipe travelled from Germany (Nicholas' Crusade) to France (Stephan's Crusade) in the same year. It is speculated by Warehouse Agents that this pipe was used by both boys during the Crusades.

Children's CrusadesEdit

The Children's Crusade was a Crusade  to expel Muslims from the Holy Land reportedly led and consisting mainly of children. It is said their intention was to peacefully convert Muslims  to Christianity, with bands of children marching to Italy who were unwittingly sold into slavery.
