Padre Rodriguez, more commonly referred to as simply the Deacon is the Philadelphia head of Malleus Maleficarum and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. A very devout and pious Catholic the Deacon and his cell protected by their faith meet each Sunday after mass at the Holy Name of Mary Cathedral in Bella Vista, where the Deacon preaches, before setting out to hunt until sundown.
The Deacon had just come out of seminary when he discovered that his brother had been murdered by something not wholly human. He investigated further, only to find that someone else within the church was investigating the death as well. After asking 1 to many questions, and receiving 1 too many answers Rodriguez was given a choice, either join the Maleficarum or excommunication. It was not a difficult decision.
The Deacon wields a blessed censer against the forces of Satan, one which he personally filled with blood from the Bleeding statue of Mary in Chile. The ritual appeared to steal years of the young padre’s life, but it has served him well, banishing uncounted minions of the Devil from this world.
