PostSubject: Father Anthony Diem   Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:59 pm

This Is a work in progress, most likely a very long wait will occur before anymore is done with this update.

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. (the years are off a little cause he lived to be one hundred and seven.) 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 black cloak with many pockets. He used to worry about looking out of he ordinary but now he doesn't care so much. He thought the cloaked functioned better than his jacket so he switched it. 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 wrapped in scripture that he will use to fasten these pages to his desired area. Now while that is his most powerful equipment he also wields four 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 one 1911 pistol which was modified so that it can hold one cartridge of twelve bullets each. He has on his person in many pockets holding cartridges of blessed silver bullets, around three clips can be found on his person at almost all times. They each contain twelve bullets of blessed silver giving him a total of forty eight shots if you include the bullets in the gun itself. 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. He also has two very small throwing knives wrapped in scripture kept up his sleeves on his forearms. Tied there by his pages these blades can come alive when he wishes them to. 

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.

That was the old Anthony. The new Anthony is not so noticeably changed on the outside at first glance. He still appears peaceful and is still a little bit lenient on protestants and human heathens. But on his inside he is an emotional wreak. He feels extremely useless after watching the massacre of his brothers and sisters by the hand of Alucard which he was powerless to stop. Yet while he feels useless he is ironically eager to go into battle and fiercer than ever. In battle he will still be calculating and intelligent but on top of that he now has the added ability to become fierce and is much more willing to get in close and tear apart his enemies with his pages and blades. The other noticeable change is that he is no longer willing to sit back and let others do such things he once thought himself beyond doing. Such as receiving the regenerators serum. He would now very much like to become one so that he may increase his abilities even more. In battle instead of the slight smile of satisfaction Anthony normally wore.  His eyes are now wide, his concentration intense. He revels in the slaughter of enemies but is very reluctant to stop fighting as he never thinks its good enough. Since he feels almost totally useless most of the time he is extremely eager to go into battle and 'redeem' himself. He is now angry in battle and barely smiles after the fight is over. He still enjoys it but no longer the battle itself. Just the sight of the shredded corpse of his enemy. 

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.




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.

Later in his life when Anthony was thirty three. He had an encounter with the no life king himself. After watching the slaughter of his brothers and sisters by the hands of this beast and being nearly useless in combat against him. His old personality changed. Almost left him. His new personality that is described under his old on is the one that he currently lives with. 

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.

The only thing I have a problem with is you being able to control weapons with the pages, and the shadow boxing.  It's too much like Agent Paper in Read or Die.  Not even Anderson has this ability other than to teleport, and make barriers. 

The last thing is you knowing the Latin rites.  There's nothing special about you knowing them.  Any ordained priest can bless something, and I have seen it done at my church.

Ya just figured it was worth mentioning. But even though we didn't see anderson controlling pages he certainly controlled those bayonets eh? So I was thinking the way my character would control weapons through faith would be because of these pages. After all if you can move the page I dont see why that page can't move things? But as to the shadow boxing that sounds fine.  Anthoyn isn't even supposed to have much finese when controlling these things.

EDIT: Oh and I just remembered it appears that there are people who can also control crucifiction nails and the like without using pages just like how anderson could control his bayonets. I would also by willing to add that unlike other characters mine can't control weopons without pages if that helps you out at all.

I'm going to warn you right now.  If you continue to copy elements from other OC sheets there will be consequences.  Like I tried to tell you before.  Try to be unique.

Well I would like to point out that I have no intention of copying anyone. I only bring up other characters for the sole reason of pointing out that other Iscariots have been able to manipulate things they consider weapons such as Alexander Anderson and Veronica's cruciafiction spikes. But not Only do I not manipulate nails or bayonets I do not even trow them/ control them without wrapping them in pages which I have yet to see anyone else thikn of doing. Once again please understand I'm not trying to copy anyones abilities but merely state that similiar abilities have been approved before even if they are not achieved through my method.

Would you consider it a better idea for my character to control small objest like his v shaped blades without having to wrap them in paper? Please also note this is a legitimate question. I wonder if  you consider the fact that these pages that Anthony controls having the ability to move things is unrealistic and would prefer that he acomplish moving his brand of weapon which I also believe to be a little original through the means of other Iscariot?
 
Thank you once again fo your advice and contribution.

Someone brought it to my attention that you had copied some abilities from their oc.  They were bothered by the fact you did not ask them, but at the moment they are gracious enough to allow it.  Thus why I only gave you a warning.

Ah yes I have pinpointed the problem. My most extreme apologies to our good friend whom I have plagiarized. I had thought that by changing the ability slightly to only mimic to a degree the effect of another characters ability was ok to do without asking them. I now realize that I wasn't actually thinking. The effect of an ability is still the effect of an ability regardless of how it is performed. My deepest and most sincere thanks go towards our very generous and merciful member who has decided to over look this terrible blunder of mine.

First off, considering all the weaponry you were already carrying, I'm saying no on the added Bible and trunk load of Assassin's Creed symbol throwing knives.  I'll now discuss my take on some specific paper powers you mentioned but in general I'm sketchy about the change in general.  Before he was a swordsman/gunslinger with good knowledge of exorcist techniques to back up his other skill sets.  A solid all-rounder.  Now I read this and it's basically Veronica Corvis with knives instead of spikes.  Iscariots having certain abilities in common is one thing, but Tegs is right that we're supposed to be encouraging creativity and individualism.  

Entangling enemies:  The bit about it being harder for vampires to muscle their way out is worded in a misleading way. There's no evidence to show that the pages and barriers even made the vampires slower or weaker.  It just prevents from from using the more "mystical" powers in their arsenals like weather control and the like.  The burning makes sense so reword that one line and I'm fine with it.  

Controlling weapons:  I'm sketchy on the idea as a whole but if all you're capable of doing is firing them while keeping your hands free I'm ok with it but tone down the number of blades you can have going at once.  Three daggers floating at once would be the limit I'd say.  Keep in mind you need to be able to handle all this while fighting at the same time.  Imagine rubbing you head and stomach, jumping on one leg and making out with somebody at the same time.  The human mind can only handle so many tasks at once.  

Hurricane:  When I read this I see images of posts to the effect of "Tony's hurricane surrounds the vampire completely blinding him and making him unable to move without suffering third degree burns.  Tony then attacks simultaneously from every direction killing the vampire."  Obviously I'm exaggerating but I hope you get my point.  There are balancing issues here.

I see, Thank you very much Anderson. I hope and believe that I can incorporate your advice into this update.

As to the weapons are they really in assassin's creed? Cause Now I might want that game even more. Also I did drop half of my guns and ammo. If I were to drop A couple more clips do you think We could arrange something with the spikes? For the moment I'll take out the bible. As to to individuality I completely understand. I think I can find a way to work that in their to, having Anthony work through intelligence and manipulation with his pages rather than controlling many of them.

Thank you once again for your advice and contribution. It is very much appreciated.

So I clarified that Anthony can pretty much only shoot his blades out towards his enemies with slight modifications on the angles. and that the entanglement acts like rope binding as opposed to a complete cover up. Along with the binding I also clarified that it does not suppress the vampires strengths. 

I also lessened the ability of the hurricane. It is now simply a swirl of papers to distract and confuse the enemy while Anthony throws his weapons at his enemy from various angles. 

As to those spikes. Since I removed one gun and thirty six bullets, Do you think It would be possible I could put in the same place those four v shaped spikes, a dagger, and some nails? The nails dont even actually matter that much that can be completely denied without me caring but perhaps that dagger is to much. I would be willing to remove that dagger for those numerous spikes if you think that would work?

As to the individuality problem. I have tried to focus his powerful attacks and some of his other abilities on Illusion now more so than power. I hope that is sufficient but if not I can always try again.

With you adding something else in I'm a little concerned about you godmoding now.  How are you suppose to keep all this in check?  It is physically, and mentally impossible to maintain so many things going on at once with the pages.

So I should take away the Anthony Illusion? I added that in simply to go along the lines of individualism by replacing power with illusion, But now that I think about it thats impossible. At least if I wish to throw things at the enemy. Seeing as How I can only control around three things at time Im afraid your right it will have to go.

I Honestly don't seem much point to your V shaped knives the aerodynamics on those don't sound too good and they probably wouldn't fly straight. Things like that might work for Batman but...well He's batman. I'd suggest you rethink it all to make an identity for yourself completely. 

I slightly agree with Anderson in the fact that it seems more than loosely based on Veronica. There are so many angles you can choose to follow you just need to dig through your mind creatively to find and create your own individual.

Ok No problem. I suppose those v shaped blades were merely an attempt to gain a couple extra missile weapons that I could use more than once. Certainly they would be totally useless without page reinforcement.

Uh, Could I ask a day or two to think up some more original stuff then? Sorry to put things on hold but I think that might work out for the best.
