Personality

To those of the Assassin's guild, and thieve's guild, he is resentful. He despises the Assassin community and would love to eradicate them all, however, he knows that not all people are bad... Therefore he gives some of them the benefit of the doubt, but not most. He will usually confront them if he sees them out in the open and try to provoke a fight. He believes that the Assassin's guild is an agent of Satan and aims to bring them down and show them the light of God Almighty.

To those not of the Assassin's guild, and thieve's guild, he is respectful and kind. He will do anything he can to help those in need and absolve those of sin who wish to have it.

He is a very devout Christian, very Religious and Spiritual, however he does not judge others before he knows them (unless they belong to the Assassin's guild).

History

[This is the record of his speaking to a woman in the bar about his life story]

He sighed as he began to remember it all as if it were yesterday. "Back in my time, when I was a boy of seventeen I had decided to join the Crusades, the attempt to retrieve the Holy Land from the non-believers. The Bishop of my city had promised us that we would be absolved of any future sin that we were to commit. He said that we will be rewarded in heaven once the task is completed." He began. "It took months to get from Beloved Italia, to the Holy Cities. The Catholic occupation in the holy land did not sit well with the local residents. We tried making peace with them, appeasing them, and converting them. All of that eventually erupted into bloodshed. And I, a boy of seventeen had seen my very first corpse. It was either them, or me. After all, I was absolved of any future sin that I might commit, right? So I killed, slaughtered, raped, tortured, starved all those that weren't of The Faith. I killed indescriminantly. Women, children, men, animals, Imams, poor, sick and dying, Anyone!" he said with a heavy sigh... It was starting to get to him a little bit.

"I had recieved order from the the His Holiness the Pope himself to investigate the fortress hiding the infamous Assassin's clan in Masyaf. It was enourmous. Truly a thing to behold. If I were a painter I would have painted it. However I digress... I was sent to Masyaf, alone, to gather information on this so called Guild. I had learned that they had been around for a very long time... Much longer than the Templar Order." He sighed once more. "They suprisingly allowed me to explore and watch them as they trained. What they did to their children. It angered me. It angered me for I had done worse. When I reported back I was to follow King Richard's men in an assault on the Fort. They sent children to kill us... Young boys who were not yet old enough to even have a beard on their chin. I killed every Assassin that came within distance of my blade. However, we did not win that battle. We were forced to retreat. I was sickened with myself. I couldn't even look myself in a mirror without shattering it into pieces. WHo would do such an awful thing to Children?" he asked her with concern in his face, glancing over at the Assassin's for a couple of seconds then returning to her.

"Once my time was done, I had decided to return home to beloved Italia. The ride home was not quick enough. When I had returned to my house, what I saw... It served me right, but it infuriated me so. My wife was murdered and My son, my only son, was nailed to the wall as if he were being nailed to a crucifix. They carved the symbol of their order into his flesh... It was as if they were mocking me. That's when it happened... I felt a sharp pain in my back and my neck." He said lowering his voice.

"I fell to the ground... Precious life blood leaving my body. That's when I saw him. I saw the face of my Lord Jesus Christ. 'Go, Templar. Go to the crypt of your father behind your house. Open his resting place, get in, and go to sleep. For I have a much larger plan for you, my son.' He said unto me. I mustered the remainder of my strength and made my way to my father's resting place. I opened it... got in... shut the lid.... and slept." He said finishing up the story with a sniffle and a wipe of his eyes.

"Now all that I wish to do is to rebuild the Templars... The True Templars... Not those power hungry, greed stricken, fiends that call themselves templars." he said with a tinge of anger in his voice as he spoke of the false Templars.

So begins...

A six foot tall man adorning full Templar gear strided into the bar, a bible under his left arm. He looked around the bar, a tranquil look upon his face and a calculating look in his eyes. He noted two... no... three Assassins in the bar? He simply raised his brow and let out a small sigh. "Is this some sort of meeting ground for the Assassin's guild?" he mumbled, thinking out loud. Why would they meet in such a public place? Weren't they just a bit more discreet than that? Wow... they must be losing their touch. Well... he wouldn't bother them if they didn't bother him. He was just here to have a nice mug of ale and perhaps a bite to eat.

The Crusader made his way over to an empty booth, his armor and varous accessories clattering and causing some slight noise as he walked, though not loud enough to where it would be distracting. He sat down and placed his bible onto the opening it for when he wished to read it. In the mean time he looked over the Holomenu, completely fascinated by the contraption having never seen one before. "How does one go about working this confounded thing?!" he said aloud as he just kept pressing all the wrong buttons, tabs and such. "This is absolutely maddening!"

Comandante Isaac Giovanni The Templar just gave up on trying to work the holomenu and decided to just get up and approach the mechanical bartender at the bar and order it the old fashioned way. "You there! I would like a pint of Ale and a slab of meat and potatoes please!" he said rather heartily, pointing at the robotic bartender and placed his order. As soon as he was done speaking the 'tender went off to retrieve the things that the Holy Warrior had ordered. In the mean time, Comandante Giovanni felt something... Something sinister, demonic even. He was just about ready to draw his blade when he found the source of the disturbance. A woman? How is that possible? She looked to be no more harmful that a flower. "Impossible..." he said under his breath as he stared at the woman. He had to have been imagining things.

Comandante Giovanni simply did the sign of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit then made his way back to his booth. "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I shall fear no evil." He said sitting down at the booth. Not moments after the one of the server bots rolled out carrying his food and ale. "Thank you." he said to it and placed a few pieces of gold and silver into it's hand. He looked at his food, then at the woman with the demonic influence, back to his food once more then he bowed his head and began to pray. Once he was done he did the sign of the Holy Trinity once more. He removed his steel crown and pulled back his chainmail cowl and began to chow down.

Right when he was about to scoop some food into his mouth he heard a voice ring out in his direction. He simply sat up and looked to the source. It was the woman with the demonic aura! "I was told it is forbidden for Demons to recite verses from the bible." He said calmly, a hand steadily reaching to the golden cross at his side, just incase. "No matter... That is of the Book of Revalations." He had a mixed look of fear, and curiosity upon his face as he looked upon this demon woman. He looked her over and took notice of the rosary around her wrist. "How is it that you are able to touch a holy relic?" he inquired gesturing to the rosary.

Giovanni nodded and released his grip on his cross and put the hand back onto the table in sight. "I see. Forgive my caution. I know what it means to sacrifice for the one's you love." he said with a nod and placed a hand upon the red cross sewn onto his tunic. "Please, sit." he said moving a hand out as a gesture to offer her a seat. "Would you like something to eat?" he asked her politely. Chivalry wasn't completely dead... atleast not where Giovanni came from.

He would then glance over at one of the Assassins, noticing the one that was looking at him earlier... Scorpion was what his acquaintances called him. He would simply give the Assassin a passive look then look back over to the reaper woman. "I am Isaac Giovanni..." he said with a courteous nod.

Comandante Isaac Giovanni raised a brow at her when she said that she had 'lost her rights to a name'. "Impossible. You always have a name. For no one but The Almighty himself can take it from you. A name is much like a soul. You cannot give a soul for it is not yours to give. All souls belong to God." he said with a nod and folded his arms. He would wait until Agatha left to start eating once more, it would be rather rude of him to start eating infront of some one.

"How does one go about freeing one such as you from damnation? Do not say that there is no way because I do not believe it. I have absolved the souls of the Eternally damned before. I will go to the ends of the earth and back for those that need salvation." he said with a confident smile. "If there truly is no way, I shall spend the rest of my days searching for some sort of gap or glimpse of hope because that is what He has commanded me to do and I do not intend on disappointing the Almighty."

Comandante Isaac Giovanni looked to who it was that called him and looked in the direction. He saw that it was one of the Assassin's. He slid out of the booth, picking up his crown, placing it onto his head, and bible as he did so and proceeded over to the boy. "What is the problem, Assassin?" he asked with a sort of aggressive tinge in his voice. He looked to the boy who seemed to be having a sort of demon posession. "Never mind... Allow me miss." he said looking to Bumble, who was chanting some sort of prayer.

The Templar removed the golden cross at his side and bent down to place the bible onto the boy's chest, then the cross ontop of the Holy Book. "Let us join hands, and pray." he said glancing around holding his hands out waiting for others to join in. He looked at the boy on the ground with worry in his eyes. Oh how he hated it when children were the victims of Demons. He made a vow right then to absolve this boy of any sin that he had ever done in his past once the demon was purged from his body.

"No Demon cares for a child as much as you. You can." he simply said to Bumble as he held out his hand. He then heard what the Assassin said. It enraged him... "Do you wish to see this boy die Assassin?! Do you want to sit here and watch a child die?" he asked raising his voice. "Put aside your petty selfishness and hate for five minutes to save some ones life you wretch! or are you too much of a Coward?" He said glaring at him. In his rant he went over to take Ernest's hand and thank him with a nod. "Pathetic..." he said to the Assassin then looked back to the 'mother' of the boy.

Giovanni bowed his head and took a deep breath. "Lord God Almighty, we come before you this day to ask for your assistance. There is a boy here who needs salvation from one of the Eternally Damned. We beg you to absolve him of any sin that he has commited in his past and purge his body and soul of all evil. We pray that you will be merciful, and benevolent on this day. I Isaac Giovanni, ask that you also bless this boy and his mother in hopes that it will bring them closer to you so that they might attain the gift of eternal paradise. In your name we pray. Amen." he said and lifted his head. Granted that it wasn't done 'by the book' as it were, Giovanni learned that a prayer has to come from the heart, not some silly piece of paper that's been repeated for hundreds of years.

Comandante Isaac Giovanni let go of the hands and knelt down by the boy. He picked up his golden cross and bible and ran a hand over the boy's body in the shape of a cross. "In the Name of th Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." He looked to the assassin and shook his head. "It shouldn't. No demon should be able to touch him or his mother anymore." He said and stood up, placing his golden cross into the loop around his belt and his bible into a leather satchel on the other side. "He should be safe from all evil, and malevolent demons and spirits." he nodded and cracked his neck.

"Are you okay?" he asked Timothy with a kind tone in his voice. He looked to the assassin. "Count your blessings Assassin, pray that we do not ever meet again." he said with a respectful nod. As he heard Ernest say something about demon posession where he comes from. "You must avoid killing at all costs... only use that as a last resort. As long as you feel guilt for killing in your heart, He will forgive you." he said with a smile.

Comandante Isaac Giovanni reached a hand out to the boy. "You are a very special boy. I can see it in your eyes. A strong, kind soul." he said with a smile, glancing over to his mother then back to him. "You have a great power within you... I can feel it, even now. Have you ever wished that you could do something... wonderful? Something worthy to be remembered until the end of the earth?" he asked him tilting his head slightly at the boy.

Giovanni sighed and shook his head at what Scorpion said. So young... so much to learn, he thought. He would only smile at the boy and bow his head. "Well if you ever want to talk, You can find me here, or at the old Monestary." He said to the boy and went back over to the booth were he was seated earlier, across from Agatha. "Please forgive the interruption, Madame." he said with a smile as he removed his Crown once more and placed it onto the tabble. "Now... about the 'deal' that you made."

Giovanni nodded in understanding. "I see... I too lost some one to the Unholy grip of Satan. However, my story is not as romantic as yours. Mine is only filled with pain and murder." He said putting a hand to his head trying not to remember. "How can one go about freeing both you, and your son simultaneously? Once again.... I shall not take Impossible as an answer." He said rather confidently.

Comandante Isaac Giovanni sighed glancing over to the Assassin that just got attacked by... well another Assassin? Figures. "Those Assassins guilds are always so full of infighting..." he said to himself with a weary sigh. He stood from his booth, pulled his chain mail cowl over his head, then placed his crown over it. He was getting out of there before he got involved in something that he couldn't get himself out of.

Giovanni had been sitting in a stone chair, infront of a stone round table, with skeletons sitting in the other chairs, each one with a Templar symbol on their chest. The Last Templar was sitting in the chair, wearing only his red cross tunic, some under clothes, and his crown. He had hung his armor up onto one of the armor stands along with his sword. He was completely vulnerable so it seemed. On the table infront of him was a single lit candle that looked as though it had been burning all night, his bible which was open, and his golden cross next to the bible. The Templar had his face in one of his hands as though he had finally realized how long he had been 'asleep'. "All of them.... Dead." he whispered to himself. "Am I truly the Last?" he asked himself looking up from his hand back to the Templar skeletons.

Giovanni looked to where the small voice came from, his vibrant green eyes seemed to glow in the dim light of the candle. "Hello... You're the mother of that boy, aren't you?" He said removing his hand from his face and sitting up. "Please, come, sit. Though you might want to push one of my deceased brothers out first." He said with a slight chuckle trying to lighten the mood. He looked at her from across the table then looked to the other 'templars' in the room. "What brings you here, madame?" He inquired with a slight smile.
