John Hex

John is a fair-haired occult meddler.  He is a manipulator, an off-white knight, a rogue, a wise-ass, a seeker, a wise fool, a bastard,
a world-saver, a cosmic kibitzer, and a doomed and tragic hero.  He is a restless wanderer, a nexus for weirdness, and a court
jester to the Eternal and the Infernal hosts.
In the year 1425 he was born to one of the richest family in the land in a difficult delivery that killed his mother.  His father never
quite forgave the boy for being born, and they had a stormy relationship.  During his childhood, John was inexorably attracted to
magic and he became involved with the occult at a very early age.  At first he was a mere dabbler, interested in magic more for
kicks and chicks than because of any appreciation for the art.  He soon discovered that he had a genuine aptitude for magic.  In
time, he found out why.
His great-grandfather had made a deal with a demon for power, for wealth, for himself and all of his descendants.  All it cost was
their souls.  When it came time for John to renew the contract, he told the demon, {Go to Hell} his great grandfather and the
demon were not happy, not at all.  
John started to study the enemy, so he began to traveling the world as it was; he was seeking old texts and artifacts that may work
on stopping evil.  Some are in Churches, so he simply keeps tabs on those.  As the world grew, so did his travels.  Over the years,
he built up a large collection of occult books.  His travels were interrupted from time to time by wars, and he would always return
to fight for England.  
At the end of World War I, John returned to the family Castle to heal.   He took a bullet to the leg, and was force to stay in an old
church that was made into a hospital.  He found that the damage to his lag was permanent, due too being on Holy ground.  His
father started to work on him, and the fights started after the first day back home.  One day, as a result of one of their fights, his
father burned John’s occult books.  In retaliation, John cast a spell of revenge that caused his father to waste away.  Frightened
his father might die, and it might cost him his soul.  He preserved the cat he used in his ritual by putting it in formaldehyde.  This
kept his father from deteriorating further, saving his lift and John’s soul.  “The cat was not too happy about it, though.”  He cast a
forget spell on himself, so he would not be tempted to use magic agent.
The path Hex has chosen through the invisible maze has led him to betray all those he loves.  It is as if he is doomed to succeed at
the price of those dearest to him.  His father, his teammates, and his lovers have all suffered some sad fate as a result of contact
with him.  It is clear that everyone who gets close to him is doomed.  What's unclear is whether he seeks out people who are
doomed for failure or whether it is his company that dooms them.
Some say the betrayal that enfolds him like a shroud is some sort of repayment for a karmic debt incurred by his ancestor, Kon-
Sten-Tyn, a great pagan king who betrayed his people and was responsible for scourging magic from England.
The ghosts of the people who have died because of their contact with him often haunt John.  It’s not clear whether these are real
ghosts or figments of his imagination.  Some times the ghosts mock him, and sometimes they give him insight.  They usually show
up when Hex has a quiet moment, over a bottle or three.
He faces tremendous threats armed only with his wits, his charm, and a few tricks.  He knows a little hypnosis, a little lock-picking
and simple divining.  He is not a precognitive, but he can sympathetic magic to locate things.  
Sometimes his knowledge and abilities frighten him, and he feels the burdens of unwanted power.  Deep down inside, hidden by a
mask of bastard and bravado, he a decent, compassionate man who cares deeply about upholding the good.

                                                                             The lead into the game:

John it has been a long year for you, Escott put Delaney and Cathy off limit.  You thought its best to stay off the Hexcorp’s radar,
after your little fire.  You have been locked away at Escott’s, and it’s time to go and play.
