:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Ethan "Son" Carter, a boy from a family Jones knew, was of a curious red color and had a strange meat-like odor. His family warned him to stay clear of traveling carnivals, but he didn't and was attacked by a hungry lion who escaped from a carnival and chased him home. Jones talks about what makes a Creole, and the ability to see in the dark.
