History: While never as centralized as Catholic efforts, the Orthodox Christians maintained their own traditions in dealing with the demonic and the dead. Among those that were a group that organized themselves with the names of the deck of playing cards called the Tarot, the Tarot Men. (The Tarot Men of generally of the opinion that later association of the Tarot with the occult is a symptom of the stupidity of the English speaking world.)

Philip has helped out the current Trinity Red with information and the occasional safe haven. He has also helped Trinity Red deal with the Sinner on a couple of occasions. Despite this, the men are at best only acquaintances.

Philip does not realize it, but he knew Googly Eyes Jones before that man got superpowers.

Philip purchased the Book of Unpleasant Truths and Useful Lies from Maggie Ravenlock. After reading its contents, he reluctantly passed it on to Queen Icarus along with some instructions.

Limitations: Seven is primarily a priest, not a fighter. While he could handle a single undead with preparation, dealing with a group or a surprise attack would probably get him killed.

About the Author ()

My name is Patrick Rennie. I am 36, have a day job that has nothing to do with comics, and live in Erie after growing up elsewhere. I can be found online at www.patrickrennie.com and on twitter as @patrennie. I am primarily a writer of fantasy, superheroes, and science fiction. I enjoy both short form and long form comics and have done work with both. For example, the daily strip Phantast Staffing Services that I used to do can be found here while this link leads to a more recent script for a superhero comic called Epiphany. I also prefer reading the genres I write in, although I supplement them with comedies, autobiographies, and dramas. I mostly read comics on the web, in trade paperbacks, on my iPad, and in the newspaper. I usually skip monthly comic books, magazines, manga, editorial cartoons, and children’s books.
