Vito Vox Engels

Basic Info:

Player: Five`Four

Position: Priest

Demeanor: Vito carries himself in a generally pleasant way, smiling and saying hello to any who pass by. He is a good listener, and tends to offer advice whenever the opportunity arises.

Nature: Inside, he is deeply concerned, his experiences leaving him somewhat jaded to the normal problems people face. Reconciling what he has seen as the acts of demons and other such evil spirits has only deepened his faith.

Description: Standing at five foot eight inches, Vito is fairly average height. His rough cut white hair just long enough to cover his forehead and ears. Icy blue eyes that can hold a thousand yard stare just as easily as a reassuring smile. He wears a black long coat over a simple black vest with a white shirt, tucked into black slacks and black army boots. He appears to be in his mid twenties and is usually clean shaven.

Born shortly after WW1 in a refugee town, his father having died in the war. His mother passing during chid birth. His older brother and himself are adopted by the church. His brother, only a few minutes older, begins showing strange behavior at the age of 6. It takes nearly a year for the church to officially declare it a case of possession and take appropriate action. During the exorcism, the entity causes the child to [DATA REDACTED]. The abbey held a closed casket funeral the next day. In 1937 he assisted in an exorcism for the first time. The nearly eight hour ordeal resulting in an elderly woman in tears of joy to be free of the spirit. The next year, at the age of twenty, Vito became ordained in the clergy as a priest. Nearly a year later to the day, just weeks before the outbreak of the second world war, Vito once again assisted in an exorcism, this time the subject a woman not much younger than himself. Before finally leaving the spirit lamented not being able to see what was to come.

When war arrives in Italy, Vito feels compelled to protect his homeland, but refuses to serve in the infantry. Instead serving as a triage aide near the front for much of the war. In late 1944, after an axis air assault on an advancing allied platoon. Vito found himself in hell on earth for two and a half days.

Some of the ordinance used on the allied platoon included delivery agents of SCP-008. The resulting infection rapidly took over the platoon, which continued on it's advance undaunted towards the nearby base, the nearest source of life.

The initial combat began with confusion, followed by panic. Vito and two dozen other german soldiers sealing themselves inside a storage bunker. Drawing upon the stores of ammunition, the men held their position for 63 hours until the last of the undead had been destroyed.

Over the next week, secondary infections claimed all but three of the other survivors. The remainder surrendering to allied forces after torching the base.

Following the war, Vito was released, spending three years operating his own church, now with the title Deacon. It was in 1948 that the Foundation acquired Vito. The next few years he spent In containment, first under Euclid, then Safe once it was established that he truly held no ill will for humanity and was willing to comply with all Foundation testing requests, even offering to help during them.

Miscellaneous:

The lord is quite clear on the subject of murder and killing. He's somewhat fuzzy on the subject of kneecaps.
