PostSubject: Anthony Diem   Sat Jun 01, 2013 2:04 am

Have you see the OVA or read the manga series of Hellsing? If so how far have you gotten? If not please direct your attention to YouTube, and watch OVA 1-4 at least. Warning: If you have watched the anime we require you watch the OVA, or read the manga. The anime is not canon. This is not our opinion. This is the law set down by the creator of Hellsing, Kouta Hirano. Yes I have, I have seen all of the episodes and read a little of the manga.

Name: Father Anthony Diem (This is not his real name it is only his chosen name in order to remain unknown now that he has joined the Iscariots.)

Name Meanings:

Anthony: Named after the exorcist in Egypt who lived around 350-450 A.D. He fought demons who took the form of beasts.

Diem: Latin for day.

Age: 33

Gender: Male

Appearance: Anthony Diem is tall at six foot three and very fit looking. He is not hugely muscular but very toned. His eyes and hair are both brown. His hair is spiky and not very neat as he doesn't do much , He has various scars along his body. One across the middle of his left cheek, another across his nose, one on his stomach that goes completely across it, and one more on his left shoulder that is round and covers the top of it, (this one is from a large bullet which grazed his shoulder.) His face is shaven and very plain with the exception of his scars.

Clothing of choice: Anthony wears a long trench coat like leather jacket with many pockets. These contain most of his things such as his wallet and little money, holy water, sunglasses, daggers on the inside of it for easy reach, two pairs of brass knuckles, two bars of food substitution enough to survive two days, a water can-tine, his many pages of blessed scripture, two small bibles, and his packs of gum. He likes to wear a black fedora hat with a longer brim than normal most of the time. He is also commonly in his priestly robes and wearing (blessed) silver toed boots. He has a silver cross which can be turned into a silver knife if he pulls on the bottom of it. He wears but not visibly a small bullet proof vest. It is not immune to all forms of bullets but it definitely helps. Also on the inside of the vest are a lot of pockets which he can place pages of blessed scripture to form a sort of anti vampire shield around himself.The only other thing that he would commonly wear are his sunglasses.



Weaponry of Choice: Anthony is very proficient with the uses of sacred pages for accomplishing various tasks. Such as teleportation, shielding, holding, blocking out filthy sorcery, and setting traps. He has a pouch of nails that he will use to fasten these pages to his desired area. Now while that is his most powerful equipment he also wields two silver daggers which are actually extremely long for daggers, they are made of silver blessed and are two feet in blade length. His knife is actually his cross which can be pulled into a silver and blessed blade it is very small and not very reliable but definitely well hidden. He also has two high powered semi automatic pistols which can hold one cartridge of twelve bullets each. He has on his person in many pockets holding cartridges of blessed silver bullets, around six clips can be found on his person at almost all times. They each contain twelve bullets of blessed silver giving him a total of eighty four shots if you include the bullets in the guns themselves. Other than that he has experience in karate an Akido. He can improve his blows by wearing a pair of blessed silver brass knuckles. He also carries but isn't proficient with (is anyone really?) two vials of holy water.

Personality: Anthony is normally a calm individual fond of God's children especially Catholics. While he takes Joy in his work and is very willing to sacrifice himself for their cause he also feels that the Iscariot may be a little harsh on the protestants as you never know when they might decide to convert. However he only feels very lightly about this. As regardless of what they might do they have still decided to split away from "The truth faith the actual church started by Jesus Christ! Not some man who thinks himself above our lord's wisdom and holy spirit!" But still if he saw someone he would go to help them regardless of their religion. Unless of course he was ordered not to. Or they were a satanist whom he truly would love to kill on site. Most of the time unless Anthony gets extremely into his current fight, he will be very calculating and observant. He has a great memory in general and especially when concerned with scripture and Latin which he is fluent in. Fluent enough to be able to read off the entire ritual Romanum in that language from memory. However the most shocking part of Anthony's personality is that he borders on normal. He might very well be considered the most normal of all the Iscariot's, he doesn't normally want to go around killing protestants and non believers in fact he wants to help them come to the true faith. But just like any Iscariot he is ruthless in battle and takes great joy in his work which he is completely dedicated to.

Race: Human

Abilities: Physical fitness in perfection. Anthony has achieved peak physical fitness thanks to the Iscariot's training. This puts him at the rank of a level f vampire without any regenerative abilities.

Exorcism/pages. Anthony's main strength lies in his ability to use his pages of blessed scripture very proficiently, diversely, and intelligently. This basically makes up for all of his non supernatural short comings, to a degree. Could he defeat a true nosferatu? No. Would he try to? Of course. Such things he can do with his pages.

Create armor/barriers, Teleport, block out black magics, hold his enemies, banish evil spirits, and use to send notes to his comrades.

Blades: Anthony is very well versed in the use of smaller blades such as daggers, and knives. He can fight with them in melee and missile combat extremely well. His skill with wielding these blades is nothing short of mastery.

Guns: Anthony ever since joining the Iscariot has become highly skilled in using simple one handed firearms like pistols. He is accurate and very quick with them.

Martial arts: Anthony has studied a large amount of Akido and Karate and is very skilled in both of these categories.

Intelligence: Anthony is very intelligent he can most of the time track down his prey and slay them with ease, although truth be told most of his prey consists of one or two level f vampires so let's hope that he can easily take them down. He is also not surprised easily often times he can sniff out an ambush. Not always but often. His intelligence also grants him amazing memory. He is able to memorize most what he sees and is fluent in Latin as well as the Rite of exorcism and prayers of deliverance that is used to free a possessed person and banish evil spirits.

Organization: Anthony is part of the Iscariot organization and is not in a position of command what so ever. He simply takes his orders and follows them. He is not very eager to rise through the ranks if truth be told as he is very content with his position in life.

History: Anthony was born in America, he was raised a catholic by his very religious parents. He had no problems accepting the teachings of his and his parents church so far. Although he only knew who's parents for a short while. When Anthony was eight they decided to take trip into European catholic lands and then finally the Vatican. Along their trip Anthony does not know where nor would he like to ask. His parents were murdered by no less than a vampire. Anthony did not know this at the time but he would later find out. The vampire slew his mother and father before they saw what was coming. Anthony watched as this sick creature took great pleasure in the deaths and blood of his parents. He laughed as he watched Anthony vomit on to the floor and said to him. "Don't worry you'll be joining them soon anyway." A rage awoke in Anthony, something he had never felt before perhaps something no child so young should ever have to feel. Anthony began to pray. "Lord, please oh savior grant me the blessing of life so that I may give death to whatever this is and all who are like it!" It only laughed at him and responded "Your God is nothing fool boy and so are his servants!" As he said the last word be ripped a chunk of skin off of his father and began to devour it. Then as the vampire was about to slay Anthony a bayonet flew forward and struck the monster in stomach. He heard a voice thick with accent say something like. "Oh so your a fan of torturing the weak servants of God are you!? Well let's just see how fun torture can be and how weak we are really are now! "

Anthony does not remember what happened next he thinks at his great relief he passed out. When he woke up he was being questioned by a very tall priest. He was told that he could no longer stay with his parents, but he could if he wished stay with him and many other children in the Vatican. Anthony readily agreed and was from then on raised in the orphanage of Father Alexander Anderson. He did not get along well with most of the children not that he didn't like them but they thought he was rather odd and dark. In time however he began to regard Father Anderson as a father to him. However no matter how much better life got he could not bring him self to forget that night and his prayer. He wanted to slay those things which had taken nearly everything from him. They deserved it and Anthony would not rest until Father Alexander Anderson finally told him about what had happened and told him how he could become like him and hunt those things. As soon as he was able he was trained and enlisted into the section thirteen Iscariot. (You have my apologies if I am not supposed to puppet Alexander Anderson.)

Samples: One and Two:

Sample one:

Hmmm, Interesting. Thought Anthony to himself as he read the news paper. He was in one of his favorite diners in Italy it was very close to the Vatican where he preferred to spend his time off duty. It appeared that there were some unusual deaths going on somewhere on the edge of Italy. Yes indeed unusual enough for some to tell him that he probably needed to go investigate it. Looking up from his paper he saw that he was correct. Another priest had entered the bar. "Father Anthony!" he called out. folding up his paper he raised his hand and responded "Here." The young priest come over to him and handed him a letter.

"Some one gave me this letter for you. I have never seen them before but they apparently new you." He looked at the letter and it was addressed to Father Anthony Diem from the Catholic church. He opened the letter and it was written in a familiar hand writing. He read it very quickly as it was quite a short one. "Mhm, Mhm. So it appears I must leave. Father peter would you please inform the Diocese that I shall have to take leave for a while? I am called away to perform some duties that we would rather not become public." "An...exorcism Father?" He asked him. "Uh yes, yes something like that." He responded. The other priest asked him. "How soon must you leave?" He responded. "It appears I have a good fifteen minutes before I am to be picked up by my colleagues." "Well then do you mind if I speak with you until then." "Not at all. Here grab a seat." Anthony responded. "Hungry?" He asked the other Priest. "No. But I am curious, have you ever been injured during an exorcism? I mean those scars on your face are they from..." Thinking back on all of the times he had been thrown into walls, chairs, tables, benches, and doors most of which shattered. He responded. "Just a little bit." Remembering one incident he said. "As to these scars. These demons can be quite tricky." His reason being during one of his 'exorcisms' he was in the middle of a fight with a vampire when it all of the sudden after forcing him to dodge out of it's way disappeared. He realized just in time where the vampire had went. Which was on the ceiling. He was lucky to have escaped that with only a scar on his cheek.

"Well, Father I must say that you are indeed a brave man. I thank God that there are people like you willing to fight for him. I don't know if I would be able to do so." Anthony responded. "Don't sell yourself short now Father. You are aiding in the fight against Satan just as much I am every day when you deliver such inspiring homilies." He looked out the window and saw a familiar black car pull up. "And that appears to be my ride. God bless Father."

Example two:

It was nighttime at the moment and he had finally tracked down the vampire he was supposed to be killing. Although unfortunately for him the vampire was on to him as well. So it was time to use his intelligence. He approached the front door calmly and obviously. He only stopped for a moment to inspect the door and prepare himself to enter by placing a page of paper just above the door. As soon as he opened the door a pair of black feet swung down from above the door and when they were only a centimeter away from Anthony's face they stopped hitting an electric wall which caused him to fall to the floor in pain.

"Oof, that's got to hurt. Hahaha. To bad for you thats only the beginning." Anthony said as he entered through the door. Anthony was informed that this vampire was of the lowest class something he could easily deal with. The vampire snarled at him and Anthony prepared himself for combat. The vampire lunged at him and he side stepped his attack and blocked his blow with his for arm. Once again the vampire felt the burn of his holy walls. Although it did not do that much damage it certainly infuriated him. The vampire tried to punch him and Anthony was forced to dive to his left in order to avoid the blow, something was not right this vampire was far faster and stronger than he had expected. When the vampire put both his hands together for a powerful strike downwards. Anthony was not left many other options than to prepare himself for the blow. He raised his arms and crossed them above his head to block the blow. The vampires strike crushed down upon Anthony and while he was in much pain from touching him he still felt the priest's body rock backwards for a moment. He used this to his advantage and kicked him in the chest. He was sent flying through a table and into a wall. The table shattered yet the wall held firm. The vampire knew he was smart to conceal his powers and act weaker than he really was. Useful for fooling people like these. The vampire was already recovering from his attacks on Anthony. The priest lay unmoving against the wall of this home. The remains of the table scattered about him. These priests were obviously a joke. He hadn't even landed a real blow on him.

He advanced on him slowly savoring the moment of victory when all of the sudden he noticed this battered and bloody priest smiling. He scowled fiercely. This priest would not mock him much longer. He grabbed a piece of the table and was about to use it to bludgeon this priest to death when all of the sudden he found himself unable to move his arms. He looked at them and they were both held by those cursed pages. That led back to the spot where he had kicked the priest. Curse him they must have fallen out then!

Anthony awaited patiently for the vampire to wonder into his trap that he had laid. He was very sore and must have broken at least two ribs, and he was cut up from the shattered table. But still at the thought of sending this abomination to hell he smiled. When the vampire raised his hands to strike he sprung his trap. His pages laid out behind him entangled him. Then a couple more grabbed his arms from where Anthony lay. He was so very glad he decided to utilize these as his main weapon of choice. Victory was short lived however as he was starting to black out. He pulled out a cell phone with one hand and speed dialed his friend. He pulled out a gun with the other. The vampire now struggling furiously against his bonds was managing to break free of them.

finally breaking free the vampire jumped into the air and was about to crush down on this priest when he saw that he had pulled out a gun. Just before he shot it off at him he smiled mockingly and mirthfully.

Anthony predicted the vampires next move, it was quite easy as he kept trying to break from his bonds by springing upwards. Before the vampire had even jumped Anthony positioned his gun were he thought he could do the most damage. He smiled and fired off his weapon. His bullet burnt through the vampires eyes socket blinding him and taking a trail of gore into the air. The vampire screamed in pain especially after that was followed up by eleven more shots all placed throughout it's body. The vampire was reduced to a very holed mess of burnt flesh and organs.

He picked up his cell phone and even as his vision faded he laughed. "I take it your finished right?" Said the voice emanating from the device. Anthony now coughing up some blood hacked out. "Yes, yes I am." Then fell unconscious.

He later fully recovered from his wounds and is currently back to doing what he loves best.

PostSubject: Re: Anthony Diem   Sat Jun 01, 2013 6:38 am

Welcome to the forum Anthony! We're always happy to see new faces around here and being the biased man of God I am, I'm especially happy to see another potential Iscariot. First off, you're absolutely welcome to just make an Iscariot off the bat. Second, in regards to those blessed pages, they're generally treated as generic purification/exorcism tools but they have a fair bit of versatility. Seal off a building to unholy presences, cleanse evil spirits, teleport in a flurry of Bible pages (if use of the pages is your specialty) and in certain cases using the pages to restrain your opponents (ala Anderson's subway fight in the anime (once again this is only available if you specialize in the pages which you do so woohoo!)). If you're interested in some inspiration, I'd suggest looking over Veronica Corvis' character sheet in the approved section. She also specializes almost entirely in the use of the pages so reading that might help give you some ideas. That being said, I really like some of the uses I'm seeing in your sheet already but more on that later. First, general critiques. Very Happy

1. You do give us all the information sections that we technically need but please copy/paste the character template (found here: http://nightshaderpg.darkbb.com/t1-character-template) so that it matches the rest of the sheets on the forum.

2. You'll need to seperate his physical appearance and the clothing that he wears. Along with that, I'd like some more detail. What does his face look like? What is his ethnicity? Is he buff? What does his face look like? Etc. (Though you do get bonus points for using Gutts as a character model. Nice choice.)

3. I give you mad props on the armor of Scripture idea. Very interesting take that I haven't really seen implemented in such a way and whatsmore you were very fair in describing its limitations. Rather than just sticking them in random pockets, I might suggest including a clerical vest (kind of like the one Enrico initially wore) and stuffing it with a layer of pages to form a kind of "holy vampire proof vest" (because who doesn't love vests? seriously.) I wouldn't reccomend wrapping the bullets in Scripture though. They're already blessed silver and the Scripture is still just thick paper at the end of the day. The force of the gunshot would probably tear them off and even if it didn't they really wouldn't add all that much.

4. You'll need an RP Sample to get approved. Basically a very very short fanfic, just type up a short post using your character in a social setting and then another post in a combat setting. Alternatively you can engage in a practice fight topic with another member of the forum and use that as your combat sample.

5. Most of what's contained in the "Possessions" sections will be placed into the "Weapon of choice" section in the character template eventually but when you do, make sure and add in a bit more detail on the weapons. What are your blades made of? Are they blessed? What kind of guns do you carry? How much ammo do you keep on you? Etc.

All in all there's a lot of potential here and I look forward to seeing the sheet in its final form. Good luck to ya and if you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to shoot me a Private Message or grab the attention of the entire Staff in the chatbox at the bottom of the forum or Help Desk near the top.

Thank you much good Father for your contribution. I am delighted to hear that I may create an Iscariot. I hope that I have successfully implemented your advice into my character and if not you have my apologies.

Couple little things to change but it's looking good so far. Clear these up and we should be set to start voting some time tomorrow.

1. You left the gender blank.

2. You covered it briefly in the weaponry section but you should elaborate on his combat abilities in the abilities section. The rule of thumb is that if it isn't explained in the abilities section your character can't pull it out of nowhere. Brief mention of his martial arts and swordsmanship should be added it along with a decent description of his exorcist/scripture abilities.

That is way too many weapons for hunting vampires effectively. You're going to sound like the Iron Man sneaking through an air vent every step you take with all those knives. Where does he even keep all of those at once?

Also, no one can be trained in every form of martial art. Not even Batman. Iscariot would probably have several kinds of training they put you through, but they would in no way have to proper instructors to teach you what you're talking about.



Biography is where this guy really starts to fall apart. It's so short that I barely have a look at his life. I want details. He's always just accepted teachings of the church, even as a rebellious teenager? There's nothing of interest that happened during a good 2/3 of his life? Why is this one American priest-in-training so important that Iscariot goes out of their way to get him to join up? It's rare enough that someone not raised in the orphanage or high ranking in the Vatican even knows of Iscariot, let alone gets to join them. I also hate whenever someone calls themselves a prodigy; it's so cliche, even Keanu Reeves starts to roll his eyes.

It is nice to see a non-obsessed Iscariot written right.

Thank you very much John for your input. I have edited this character and I hope that I have successfully understood and lived up to your wishes. I have changed and expanded his history and gotten rip of eight knives would you like me to get rid of more? If so I have no problem doing that, and if my Biography is lacking I do not mind changing that.

If Anderson is okay with you using him in your biography, then you're allowed to. Assuming he is, you seem to have taken care of everything that needed fixing.

I'm fine with the use of Anderson in your biography. It's certainly not the first character that was saved from death and raised by Father Anderson. Funny how that's kinda become a hobby of his now isn't it? Anywho, the sheet looks fine by me kiddo.
