Hair Reddish Brown
Tall, Thin and somewhat lanky, Bennit has a youthful quality and appearance. It wouldn't take much of an investigation to realize he hasn't been part of the secret world for long.
He generally can be found wearing casual skater clothing and club wear unless the occasion is formal or tactical. Most wouldn't suspect him of being a Templar Agent simply from his age and lack of formal attire.
Although his primary weapon is a sword, Bennit is never seen carrying one with him. The only weapons he carries are military sidearms.
His early life was spent in a suburb of Chicago. He was the only child of a single mother and his father was unknown. Surprisingly, Bennit has acquired an impressive amount of knowledge about the Occult. Left-hand path followers were common in his hometown being as it held the largest Theosophical library in the world. Bennit usually came across them working at his part-time barista job at a cafe.
He also is well versed in Catholicism having regularly attended events and services at a specific local parish although he never had any roles during masses. It was also a place he stayed while his mother worked, spending time with staff and the parish priest.
Him and his mother's move to New Hampshire was organized very quickly and without much notice. Catholic Diosconal records show a priest from Bennit's church transferring to a parish in that area several months earlier. A parish Bennit eventually attended. The priest's name was Ben Chauntilles.
Everyone knows someone. What groups, people, friends, and relatives does your character have ties to? Would other characters know them from a favorite hangout or a particular organization?
- Bennit's sword is forged with metallic shards of an unknown origin. The metals were discovered in a mesopotamian archaeological dig in the 19th century by a group from an Augustinian university in Austria and was kept in Rome. It was recently smelted with modern elements into a sword and then blessed by a Benedictine priest and mystic. Since then it has gained extra-dimensional properties and is shared by both Bennit and what the Church presumes is a cherubim angel. When Bennit needs it for combat, it's in his possession. When he doesn't need it, or lacks agency to wield it, it returns to it's owner. It would take someone high up to pull strings to get it into the hands of a rookie templar.
- Since his childhood Bennit has been consistently visited by an entity named "Zack". Thought just an imaginary friend, Zack gave Bennit attention during his childhood and kept him company at times. At the age of 7 Bennit witnessed a house fire on his block. None of the residents were home and Bennit was able to hear several dogs barking that were locked inside. Firefighters later found the dogs safe and leashed to the rear side of the house's garage. When asked how they escaped Bennit insisted that he had asked his friend Zack to help them and gave him all the credit.
Council of Venice case #T-59 - "Received transmissions in our etheric broadcast equipment. Some type of signal although it's properties aren't common even for our field of study. It's constant but can only be heard once. Not in a loop. I tell you, Sergio, If you fix your equipment to the right frequency you'll hear it too. It will always play. It's backwards. Going back in time to another age... Or maybe coming from it to now, i don't know. Time is different there. It took us a while to figure it out but it's in Ancient Hebrew. Our translation is sketchy but we think we're close.
'Not all of the brothers sought Enoch's intersession. One was wise enough to carry the burden of his sin. Azazel and his company demanded redemption and received punishment for themselves and their children. Zachariel alone bore the burden of judgement of his own will. Zachariel will be given charge of fashioning his own return from amongst his own descendants and from that multitude, when all that is divine within them is most faint, I saw a redeemer.'
'Brothers' is off in the translation. Closest we could get. It's in reference to sons. Bene ha Elohim. Sons of Heaven. The Angels. We'd be wise to not keep this on the shelf too long."
