Characters of the Guilds
Craftsmen of the Underworld
The Hierarchy would like you to believe, that the guilds are weak, and fading away. But that is far from the truth. Since their declared banning by Charon, the guilds have been growing, gaining power, and Hamilton is no exception.
Father Piotyr Ivanov (Pardoner Chapter Head)
Rank: Grand Master
Father Piotyr usually goes by the name of Peter, to make the lives of his friends easier, but he much prefers Piotyr. He died in a church renovation, what he considered to be divine retribution for hoarding church funds. That was back in 1704, and he has wandered for a long time since. He eventually settled in Hamilton, learning how to control the Devil in all Wraiths, so that the Wraiths do not fall to Temptation and be forever destroyed. He believes this to be the reason he is still here instead of passing on to God; to help those others whose Devil is keeping them from moving on themselves... Piotyr is a large man, with a thick Russian accent and a ruddy complexion. He has a squared-off beard as he did in life, but he wears the garments of modern clergy. His fingers carry the inky black stains of all Pardoners.
In life Phillips Stanson was a physics teacher at Westmount High School. He was married to his work and had little time for the opposite sex. His love for physics and exploring the unknown lead him to an obsession with experiments and trying new theories. At school, his excitement for the sciences and teaching made the even lowest jock interested in physics. Even though Mr. Stanson always followed safety to the utmost, his more
dangerous experiments soon caught up with him. His last attempt at chemistry included bromine. Unfortunately the vial was dropped, and poor Mr. Stanson was not able to reach a phone for help fast enough. He was Reaped by the Pardoner Guild's reaper and put into training right away. He was given the name Brother Repentance due to his inability to give up his work in the Skinlands. He continues today to help out all physics students in need, and continues his experiments through the more promising enthusiasts. After training, the Guild quickly put this ability of teaching into use. He shows nearly as much excitement for Castigation as he did for his former works, and has taught many of the Guild's up-and-coming Pardoners. But at Westmount's science department, Mr.Stanson is still on the teachers list.
Michael Hoth (Brother Greed)
Michael is Pardoner at the rank of Journeyman, and soon to become a Master. He met with death in a drunk driving accident
when driving a military 2 1/2 ton truck. In the process, he killed three members of a family (part of the Mafia, no less). This has gave him much grief, and much enjoyment to his Shadow. His shadow feasted on his inability to forget embarrassing or damaging memories. This, combined with his twisted memories, drove him to become a Pardoner. Now with his Shadow under control, his sights are set on gaining power and success, an outstanding regret of his. Resonantly, an Akashic mage was able to bring Michael back to life for a short time. Mike was able to resist the temptations of becoming addicted to this "high", but has gain a new passion. He plans to resurrect himself, permanently! With the help of a few mages of course. When Mike died, he was left with a powerful relic, his rifle. Later, through luck, he gained the same truck that he died in, which was destroyed in the accident. His most powerful Arcanos is Castigate, but also has abilities in Puppetry, an Argos.
Bruce Springer (Brother Reverence)
Pampered and spoiled, Bruce lived his life with little care. As a child he was protected, and was taught proper etiquette at a young age. As he aged, he grew increasingly discontent with his protected life, and much more rebellious. He quickly took up driving and was instantly addicted to the thrill of racing red lights and going at high speeds around sharp turns. Most are surprised that he lived as long as he did. Once he had finished high school, he took up racing, against his parents suggestions. He won many races due to his no-fear actions on the track. His attitude towards others was of a pompous air. "Death will never claim me" pronounced Bruce to a sports interviewer. The next race, he met death. Now brought under the Guild, his daring and wits for survival put him as a candidate for Darksider. Now he gets his thrills from the spectral beasts that can be found in
Hamilton Harbour. Bruce still has his pompous attitude, and believes his death was for him to move on to greater challenges. Just recently, he and two other Doomslayers engaged a giant spectral hound. Reports were coming in about the beast was randomly slaughtering innocent wraiths in the downtown of Hamilton. Bruce and his associates went to challenge the creature, but were no match for it. Only Bruce escaped with no permanent wounds. One of the Doomslayers had to be smelted down because his Shadow had taken over, and the other lost a chunk of Corpus. Bruce is now upset about not being the victor over the monster, and now has a dislike for Michael, one of the people involved in its death.
Adlous, when Reaped, didn't remember much of life. Not even his name or his death. Every once in a while, he'll have flashbacks: a woman, a child, several bright lights and his misshapen body hints at what he was. When reaped, he was found on the side of a hill below the High Level Bridge. He was then given over to the Beggar Lord and his Legion of Paupers. After becoming a Legionnaire, he noticed he had a natural affinity for the art of Argos. Adlous also had some knowledge of trains. Like all members of the Pauper Legion, Adlous investigated his mysterious background. He discovered that he had once been a train engineer. One day, his wife and daughter had visited. While walking across tracks, his child's foot became stuck. Without prevail, Adlous tried to free her foot. As if fated, a large iron black demon came roaring down the tracks. Adlous did not leave his daughter's side, and fought till the end. Quickly Adlous went into a depression. It might have been best to have never learned his true fate. Several years later, a man dressed in a robe, claiming to be of a group of Harbingers, said he was interested in Adlous' skill and knowledge of steam engines. Adlous refused, and would have no part of anything the Harbingers had in store for him. It wouldn't be until later that he decided there might be a chance that his daughter came to the shadowlands. So now Adlous conducts the trains that run through Hamilton, watching every Midnight Express hoping to see his daughter. And still he waits.
