a character in “Broken Fairytale”, as played by Cypher


Username: Cypher.
Name: Alistair Finnigan O'Flaherty
Age: Mid/late 30s.
What are you: Human Witch-Hunter.
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 198 lbs.
Usual attire: See Picture.

At first glance, Alistair wouldn't strike you as a member of the cloth. With his almost entirely dark garb, lack of a cross embossed on his person anywhere, grizzled face, omnipresent beard growth and generally beaten appearance, his first impression is almost always a man of the road. He has shoulder-length black hair, which is rarely combed and as such hangs down in ragged, knotted strands around his head. His face is heavily lined from years of travel, but his brown eyes peer sharply from deep within his skull. He stands at 6'5", an intimidating figure if ever there was one. He appears to be in his mid- to late thirties.


Alistair is a devout Christian, believing that every decision he makes has some effect on his far-off destiny. His priestliness, however, lays only in his devoutness - Alistair is a heavy drinker, smokes a tobacco pipe almost eternally, cusses up a storm and isn't afraid to pick a fight where-ever he goes. He views all supernatural beings - vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, et cetera - as an affront to God, and actively seeks to destroy them at every opportunity. Likewise, he views false exorcists (such as Scarlett and Paine Berwick, for example) as blasphemous sinners consigned eternally to the pits of Hell. He's very much a loner; cold and unfriendly to those he doesn't know and only slightly warmer to people he does.

Gifts: None (He is perfectly human in every respect. His staff has mild magical capabilities.)
Likes: God, killing "abominations"
Dislikes: Everything else.
Sexual preference: Asexual (Celibate)


Aside from his clothing, Alistair carries a silver cross around his neck at all times, and has a box of vampire-slaying equipment in his backpack, containing powdered garlic, several vials of holy water and stakes of various shapes and sizes. In terms of armaments, he carries a rapier (for quick, light strikes), a cutlass (for heavier, more brutal combat), a brace of flintlock pistols and a heavy, gnarled walking stick. The end of the stick has been sharpened down to a razor point that, for some reason, never seems to dull. Surprisingly, out of all of his weapons, the big stick seems to be the most powerful, seemingly in posession of magical powers that Alistair refuses to discuss.


Alistair refuses to discuss most of his past. It is known that he was born in the Irish countryside, but there were no people born "Alistair Finnigan O'Flaherty" in the supposed year of Alistair's birth. It is known that he studied to become a priest at Oxford, but it is unknown how long he attended university or if he ever delivered a sermon in England even once.

What is known about Alistair is his pedigree as a witch-hunter: he is one of Europe's most infamous exorcists and paranormal investigators, having travelled all the way from Saint Petersburg in the far east to Toledo in the west and several major cities inbetween. His reputation, spread by word of mouth, sends chills down the spines of everyone; human and supernatural beast alike - to hear that Alistair O'Flaherty is coming to town is usually a sign of paranormal activity, and always a sign of death.

So begins...
