Veritas Dagger ·
Named with the latin word meaning, truth. A dagger forged with a blade made magical by cheap sorcery, with a 4½ long of grip, the width of the blade is 1½ inches wide and 8 inches in height. On the surface of the blade, engraved, are unknown symbols, possibly encantation instructions. The blade glows a faint blue light always and when in the presence of high evil intentions, dark powers or creatures, the light on the blade transfers into a bright hot red, enabling the knife engage in magical combat. A weapon lent to Hunt from a comrade, by the name Nox. Veritas can be useless and weak against most enemies great in magic. For example any demon strong in their magic could cloak their power from the dagger, leaving it in its "blue" state and unable to be used as a counter against spells and the blade could be shattered, broken, or become dull like any other ordinary sword or knives in that form. Because of it's possible fragility, Hunt uses the knife with caution and uses it only to detect the presence of stronger magical enemies, the knife is only used during combat with normal enemies. There is more background and power to the Veritas, which even the current wielder, Hunt doesn't not know of. (see side infos)
Leviticus Pistol ·
A legendary silver and black pistol created by and a gift from Father Diogenes. The pistol consists of three long silver, narrow barrels constructed and merged with a bullet holding capsule specially hidden in the inside of the barrels. The capsule can hold up to 10 bullets, and inside the capsule is embedded a magical pentagram. The same pentagram is seen etched on both sides of the handle of the gun and smaller versions of them on the three connected barrels. This weapon is sanctified and unable to be influenced or "impurified" by dark powers. The pistol is magical and allows the bullets to penetrate dark magic. Even though the Leviticus converts normal bullets into magical bullets, there are special bullets designed for the Leviticus which also consists of some powers which makes the gun's shots more powerful, however, the Leviticus also has to "rest" a few minutes every three shots with the special bullets. Another downside to the pistol is that it only fires when faced against one wielding dark powers, the pistol never fires against ordinary people, good or bad. The Leviticus is Hunt's pride and most favored weapon of his stock. Though it's true name is Leviticus (a book from the bible), which was named by Diogenes, Hunt repeatingly calls the feared weapon "The Bad Ass".
Flux Canon a.k.a "T-Storm Launcher" ·
The self-made rocket launcher, somewhat crude, but effective weapon that is used to obliterate, usually held in a large black case. Because of its flash at launch, and loud explosions, Hunt gave the canon the pet name T-Storm (thunderstorm) Launcher. It's true name being flux canon, the canon can hold five small explosive projectiles and fire three times without pause hence it's name flux. It is rarely used by Hunt because of it's forceful recoil the weapon gives out and the irritation of having to reload after only three launches. The blast of the projectiles fired by the t-storm have a very short radius of about 60 feet and the maximum range of the t-storm is 1,000 ft. It is one of the "last resort" weapons that Hunt uses in difficult situations.
Ordem Rod · Ordem a portuguese word meaning, Order. An ordinary black staff which stands 8 ft. tall and used for ordinary combat against numerous enemies, usually carried at his back. Hunt was schooled in the martial arts distinctly known as "The Way of the Rod" at the age of 10 and grew with the fighting style becoming graceful in the style. Hunt has not yet defeated his mentor in the excercise.
Lupe & The Luck (2 x Revolvers) ·
The most used and favored weapons by Hunt aside from the powerful Leviticus. Lupe is short from the spanish name "Guadalupe". *Named after the mexican saint, El Virgen Santa Guadalupe (The Virgin Saint Guadalupe; if I'm correct)* but mainly for it's beauty. The Lupe is a silver revolver, with a black decorated handle of a rose molded with silver, and holds 8 bullets. The Luck is not named after any living or dead icons, a black revolver all over, which cost a whole lot of money because of it's caliber, high accuracy and mostly because of it's capacity for bullets, which is 12 bullets. It was named "The Luck" because Hunt claims that he feels lucky when using it.

Physical Appearance: Hunt's stature is 6'0 ft. tall and weighs 198 lbs. Hunt is athelitcally built and has the posture or body shape of a swimmer, has a sinewy strength about him. His hair is dark brown and usually held back in a very short ponytail, and the ends of his ponytail is dye black. His eyes are a navy blue color. On his upper left arm, lateral to his bicep muscle, a black tattoo of claws of a raven could be seen.
Attire: Hunt usually wears dark colored clothing, prefferably black, navy, brown, and gray. The Saints encourage uniform for the slayers and the uniform consists of only black and gray colors.

Personality: Hunt was raised through several traumatic periods in his life and witnesses more shocking parts of life being brought into the slayer life but most impressively he has fought to keep his sanity and beat the fear of the immense dark side of his career. Hunt's detectable personality trait is his pragmatism, inside and outside his work. He uses and shows his shrewdness, and ferocity against his enemies, and always the "respect-your-enemy" type. He could be overly crude and arrogant at times because of his profession, is usually devious to his superiors and likes to think he could take matters much better in his hands. To his close friends Hunt is known to be an outgoing and loyal person but he could be too headstrong in his opinions and tactics. Diogenes is one of the few people who call Hunt by his true name, Julius.
((history may be editted and changed anytime soon))
Julius Risech was born and raised in a small but wealthy and busy region known as Hephaestus City. Hunt's father, Foxten Risech, owned one of the few mansions and large properties that were in Hephaestus. The Risech were to a small degree, a large family. Hunt had two elder brothers by eight years whom were twins, Theo and Geo. A younger sister by one year, Julia, and two female cousins Justine and Paritza Raes. The family were a happy family until the manifestation of dark creatures and demons near Hephaestus City.
Foxten Risech, a rich man had the Saints Organization to protect his home and had state-of-the-arts magical protection to seal his home and protect his family. Despite all the protection provided for the Risech residence, a powerful demon and henchmen broke through the holds of protective magic of the mansion and passed the active Saints guards. The leader demon was known as the Advocatus Diaboli, a demon with no known motive attacked the Risech residence and made a battle field out of the mansion. Most unfortunately everyone of the family except Foxten were in the house at the time. Many Saints slayers tried to fight against the Advocatus, but died gruesomely.
At the time of the invasion, Julius was only ten years old and had witnessed the extreme grisly massacre of his family. Diogenes Hunt and another Saints slayer at the seen were subdued by the demon and had to watch the slayings of the Risech members. Julius was specifically left alive to remember the experience and his younger sister Julia was abducted by the demon never to be seen again. A few days after the incident, Foxten mysteriously never returned to his home or contacted the Saints. Diogenes had no choice but to take Julius into his custody and a few months later still having no clues to Foxten Risech's whereabouts burnt down the Risech mansion.
Julius was depressed and remained silent for months, and was forced to eat regularly after the incident. Once he got over his grieving he started to open to Diogenes when he once he understood that the man hunted demons. This became a light to Julius, he harnessed and reserved a special hate towards demons. He requested training from Diogenes, and reluctantly the man did. Taught him all he knew about demons, about the magic used against the and even hired mentors to train Julius in combat. Once Julius became fifteen and Diogenes announced his retirement to become a priest, Julius enrolled in the youth/orphan program provided by the Saints where he met his friend Nox, who gave him the name Garner. Julius continued his schooling and training from there. With exceptional skills for his age, he recruited at the age 17 to hunt demons. On official Saints paper he was known as Garner Hunt, the son Diogenes Hunt, no longer a Risech.
A year after his recruiting, Hunt encountered his sister from his past after a demon raid on a small city, she was accompanied by the notorious Advocatus who was supposed to be dead the second time Diogenes slayed him. He only recognized his sister, Julia after seeing the tattoo of the family crest on her arm. Before he could confirm this, the Advocatus caused a quake the devasted the city and vanished along with Julia. After the event, Hunt fled the city with his remaining Saints partners to go see Diogenes who had supposedly slayed the Advocatus years before.
Hunt accompanied by Nox visited Diogenes to tell him of the return of the Advocatus and the presence of his sister. Diogenes strucked by the news from Hunt, tells him that he should pursue the Advocatus and uncover the truth behind his sister's abduction. At the moment Diogenes hands Hunt the Leviticus pistol. Diogenes claimed that he was too old and tired to be chasing the Advocatus again and that it is now Hunt's business to catch him and erase him from the world forever.
After the meeting with Diogenes, Hunt decided to go absent without leave from the Saints. Nox sensing that he would not see his comrade for a long time, handed his Veritas dagger to him and promised that it would help him with the truth, Hunt does not understand what he means. Ever since that moment, Hunt has been on a hunting quest after his ultimate enemy the Advocatus, and the mystery behind his sister's fate. In this quest, Hunt is plunged deeper into the dark realms of slaying as he goes on with his personal mission. He finds out that things are not what they seem and that greater evils command the hated demons even the death defying Advocatus.
Side Info Nox is a very good friend of Garner Hunt who is negatively eccentric and a usually cold person. He is also a partner to him in some works but truly he is a vampire slayer, unlike Hunt who prefers to work in demon slaying. They mostly meet each other at headquarters where they come to when not slaying. In the slayers world Nox believes that true names do not exist and that all slayers should go under aliases hence why his surname and true name are never revealed. His Saints name 'Nox' came from himself and symbolizes his line work of work, which is hunting vampires, they who prowl the night. Him being 'night' signify that he knows they are there. Nox does not reveal his background and history of his life to no one (not even Hunt) and is one of the most formidable vampire hunter and demon hunter of the Saints organization. Later he is promotted to MAZE Faction of slayers, he also does not reveal this to Hunt.
The Veritas dagger belongs to Nox which was past down his family, a long line of demon and vampire slayers. Nox lent the Veritas blade to Hunt on their last meeting, assuring Hunt that it will prove helpful in his quest. Nox had to stay behind at headquarters for an important assignment. Nox has more knowledge of the veritas, knowing the symboled encantations on the knife to shield, and counter against magic attacks. Nox wields the veritas more efficiently than Hunt, who does not know any of the various spells engraved on the blade.
Father Diogenes was once a well known gunsmith and former demon slayer. A man who partially raised Hunt from when he became orphan for five years on until he retired to become a priest with the reason that his goals in the career of slaying were over. The only demon slayer ever to face the advocatus diaboli twice, and come out victorious, but deeply emotionally scathed. Prior to his sudden retirement, He gave the custody of Hunt to the "Saints Organization". Three years later, once Hunt became 18, he gave the Leviticus pistol to Hunt. Hunt visits Diogenes whenever he is discouraged and in need of advice, and sees the priest as a close uncle. Diogenes is one of the few people who call, Garner by his true name "Julius".
The Advocatus Diaboli a demon who is said to be able to communicate and consult with Devil, his name is translated "Devil's Advocate" from latin. Diogenes claims he destroyed the powerful demon twice, and he believed the reason the demon kept resurrecting himself was that he wasn't meant to kill him but Hunt was, which is the true reason why he gave Hunt the Leviticus pistol. The Advocatus Diaboli is also responsible for the deaths of Diogenes' family. *'Devil' is not the actual biblical devil, but the 'lord of darkness' in my fictional use of the name since I haven't figured a good demon name for him yet*
The Saints, are an organized army of slayers to rid the world of vampires and demons with some help from witchcraft and sorcerors who constructs magical weapons for the Saints to fight demons and vampires. Hunt was taken in custody by the Saints Organization at the age of fifteen. It is also where he continued his slayer training, and began hunting demons at the age of seventeen.
The name 'Garner' came from Julius' friend Nox. Nox observing Julius' attitude in wanting to catch all demons, gave him the nickname Garner, which also means; to amass, to gather, or collect.
MAZE Faction are another group similar to the Saints Organization but with higher, more and stronger weapons to use in slaying. They are part of a larger group which have not revealed themselves yet and both groups are secret. The MAZE are rumored to have 'good' demons and vampires in their ranks. Later the Saints Organization cuts their allegiance with MAZE.
Wow. This is really detailed and thought-out. He doesn't appear to be too strong, either. Even though you didn't exactly follow the way we like to see character profiles formatted, you still covered everything that needed to be covered. And, so, I'll be approving this character. *stamps with approval*
I look forward to seeing you around the BA. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. ^_^
