The Black Spiral
Father John Marrow is an unassuming white man who dresses almost exclusively in the black suit and white collar that characterizes his profession. Although Embraced in his thirties, Marrow’s deep-set eyes and receding hairline give the casual viewer the impression of slightly advanced age. The wily Daeva has learned to use this impression to his benefit over time, combining it with his priestly attire and sagacious manner to win the confidence of others, or at least to put them at ease around him.
A true fanatic, Marrow is a devout Priest in both the Kindred and kine senses of the word. A Priest whose influence covers Savoy’s territories and extends even to some portions of Vidal’s, Marrow ranks high in the local hierarchy of the Lancea Sanctum. He is also devoutly Catholic, and holds midnight masses for a congregation in a church in the Tremé District. Marrow’s loyalties are unmistakable and well-known. He holds allegiance to the Lancea Sanctum first, and Antoine Savoy second. So long as the two do not come into conflict, he is one of the fiercest supporters of the French Quarter lord, and he spends much of his time hunting down those who are enemies of both his liege and his covenant. Marrow is an Inquisitor in the true sense of the word, and many who violate the precepts of the Lancea Sanctum find themselves paid a visit by the grim, merciless Marrow.
