Indexer Notes

Mr. "E" appealed for guidance and assistance to a statue of a ancient tribal god named King Kolah which he found in the ruins of a prehistoric city. Housed in a hidden subterranean temple beneath his home, Kolah presented Mr. E with visions that led him to criminals. The idol also gave Mr. E the assistance of his eleven messengers, the Messengers of Justice. The messengers were small gnome-like creatures who could shape-shift into blackbirds and wreaked mischief against Mr. E's enemies. The names of some of the creatures were Butch, Zipper, Tim and Spike. Mr. E used his visions and assistant gnomes to fight crime in Washington DC.
