Bio:

WIP
Teaser: [soon to become TL;DR summary as this will eventually be of novelette length as a pet project]

[Edit – wow the TL;DR turns out to take time to read =/ Here’s a TL TL;DR – good, religious parents that got killed by traitorous cleric; saved by Moritat cell Master; mentally imbalanced and messed up on a mission; told to find and join Inquisition as a personal test of faith and to work on own weaknesses; accidentally KS’ed an Acolyte cell of Rhogan’s; ???; Profit! [employment]

- good, decent parents who were part of an Imperial creed outreach group that acted as vigilantes against even minor transgressions of the Imperial Faith
- parents betrayed by a cleric in the group and lost what little status and stability they had
- family slaughtered before his eyes as the traitorous cleric sought to absolutely ruin de Villefort Sr and unleashed the Creatures of the Volg Depths on them by distracting the guards
- Gérard saved by a Moritat cell Master who came to dispose of the unholy creatures
- Instructed in the Way of the Bloody Edge
- Despite having retained the religious background of his parents, having seen what little help faith was to good people, his indoctrination became warped into a belief in a personal, vengeful God-Emperor
- Subconsciously developed inferiority complex that compelled him to overzealousness and berzerk tendencies; often admonished by Master for this lack of discretion in his kills **Subject to change
- @#$%ed up royally in his test right before being sent on the Travail, resulting in death of entire cell save Master, who was mortally wounded
- Master orders him on pain of death by asphyxiation [with a pillow! Not even cuts!] to find and serve as part of an Inquisitorial cell to temper his personal flaws and truly understand what it means to follow the Way of the Bloody Edge
- Took oath of poverty and vengeance on all heretics until the day he could become a servant of the Inquisition
- For a time, hunted scum and heretical bounties in the Volg underhive
- Moved on to bigger and better; travelled around and targets became higher and higher profile
- Killed a businessman peddling unregistered weapons to small-time cults and feudal world rebellions
- le gasp! Turns out businessman was also targeted by one of Rhogan’s cells, who had watched him in the act and deemed his actions worthy
- Contacted by cell leader who began to use him as a hired grunt without revealing Inquisitorial ties
- Drama ensues! [Seriously… WIP…]
- Character development!
- Plot development!
- Caught Rhogan’s attention during one of his rare personal visits to this largely independent cell
- More drama!
- More character development!
- Moar plot!
- Jumped through some Rhoganian hoops to become full-fledged Acolyte
