Name: Damon Durande Gerrion
Race: Human (Mixed)
Weight: 255 Lbs
Eye color: Grey
Hair color: Black
Hair Style: Long, Messy, to middle of back. Full Thick Beard + Goatee Combination.
Appearance: Damon is a deeply tanned Man with a rough, scraggly mountain survivalist style beard with long unkempt hair. His face is a tapestry of scars of violent and ferocious battles past, the most notable being the three claw marks that drove up his throat on his right side, stopping at his right cheek, as well as a massive burn scar that covers a large part of the left side of his head.
Damon often wears the legendary armor of his order of Warriors and Paladins, but outside of battle he usually sticks to thick leathers including an old worn black leather long coat and steel-toed boots. He wears a single shoulder pad and gauntlet on his left sword arm even outside of battle, just to be prepared in case of a sudden attack.
He can also often be seen wearing a pirate style Captain's Hat that reveals a strangely eccentric side to the man that is juxtaposed strangely with his often serious demeanor. His hands are often gritty and dirty, his fingernails cracked and blacked from weary, withering work.
Personality: Damon comes off as a large intimidating beast of a man, his face gritty and often serious and aggressive. This first impression is a correct one, but he is a more complicated man than just that. He tolds firmly onto an air of invincibility and has done much to build up that reputation to his peers and even enemies. He shows no mercy or quarter to his enemies because he knows that his enemies would give him none, his brutal fighting style in combat striking fear into hearts. Of course, this veneer of being the most invincible, dangerous, and unstoppable man in the world, is only the first layer you see of him. Damon can show a surprisingly compassionate side to her personality and values loyalty most in his heart, the Men and Women that he calls his friends he would gladly and willing face down an army for, and he has on occasion. Still, you can tell he is a troubled man and that hints at some kind of past, a past that he refuses to speak of, even to his closest allies. Many speculate that Damon is merely a moniker that he took for himself as to stop people prying into his past, a speculation fueled by the fact that no records exist on the man, but he often laughs these rumors off as well. Whatever the case, Damon is a Man that you would love to have as a friend and would dread ever having as an enemy.
Backstory: Damon was born on the floating ruin of the horn of the once African Continent that was split and separated from the mainland, at least that's what he says, nothing and no one can corroborate that story. He mentions that he left home at a young age to become a soldier, but a terrible personal tragedy left him struggling to find a place in the military, no, he needed something more.
That was when he found out about the order of Holy Warriors and Vanguard against the monsters of the world, the fabled Emortuus Sacerdotium. Known to the modern vernacular as the Perished Priesthood.
He and many other recruits that attempted to join the legendary order of Monster Slayers take a solemn vow to give everything to God in defense of Mankind, their lives, their dreams, their ego, and their very fears. For only those who are the most truly faithful and righteous join the ranks of the Ancient Latin Order.
He and the other recruits went through grueling months and months of education and training, not only of the body and mind but also the spirit, the Battle Nuns of the Priesthood teaching him everything to know about the righteous path of God and the importance of sacrifice.
That final lesson would be tested most of all when it was revealed at the end of their training the secret of the power of the order, each person much swallow whole the heart of a demon, if your will and your faith were strong enough, and your convictions to yourself and to God were righteous enough, you could fend off the corruption that was forever festering inside of you and eating at your soul, allowing you to use the unique powers of the Demon you consumed for your own ends and for righteous justice. Many tried to leave then and there, but they were promptly killed to maintain the secret, but Damon stood firm, many who partook died instantly from the sheer immeasurable acid like pain of the process, others died mere moments after that as the Demon absorbed their soul, being reborn in their bodies before being instantly cut down. However, Damon continued, even offering to swallow an Oni Heart, for the more powerful the demon, the greater the potential power, but it also exponentially increased the risk.
As the Oni heart passed whole into his body, he stood strong from the pain, a fire in his eyes like no other. He never did as well on the religious aspects of the organization, but it was clear that whatever was fueling him wasn't religious zeal, but something more like the sheer refusal to die. After hours of seemingly endless pain the likes of which he had never known, he passed, the heart stabilizing and becoming dormant for now. After nearly 80 percent of the recruits lay dead in some form or another, they were told that they could still be consumed if their faith and strength were to falter too much and that your powers would find you with time. They then stated that each of them would be assigned a Seraphim Mentor, Angels that also underwent the same ritual and training, but that were also directly trained under the angel founders of the order.
His mentor was an experienced Female Angel named Ignja Biczowanie, over the next twenty-two years of fighting, the two formed an inseperable bond, always fighting together and side by side. Despite the fact that it was a Man and Woman, their vows both forbade any distractions in their mission to protect and destroy evil, much to the chagrin of many a bored, gossiping recruit.
In the current day, with desperation at recent events, the United Nations struck a deal with the Emortuus Sacerdotium, formerly declared a terrorist organization due to their… extreme measures… to allow an ambassador of the organization to join the discussions and aid the fight against the monsterous hordes. However, with trust between the two organizations still strained, it was decided that only two of their most experienced warriors would join in to help for now, the two selected for this important task, of course, being Damon and Ignja.
Now the two of them join the main cause against darkness, while being shunned by both Demonkin for their organization's infamous zeal and religious beliefs, as well as the Angelkin for they see their fellow brothers having chosen a path of corruption and evil, despite saying they serve the Divine.
