The story:
A discussion about different Phantoms' heights brings the Walker family into the Chronicle Room, where the Phantom relates the fascinating tale of the 8th Phantom, whose wife gave him no less than four sons, of which three were twins.

The fourth son, Kit, was born a year later than his big brothers and was also much shorter than your average Phantom, but due to his brothers' absence and his own prowess, it was to him it fell to shoulder the burden of carrying on the Phantom tradition. His first task: avenging his father's murder...

Watch out for:
