Brother Inquisitor Kristopher Weishaupt

Background/History: Brother Kristopher has lived his whole life around Avestites. Born on Pyre, 35 years ago, his parents were Avestites, and from an early age, he was trained in the doctrine of the Avestite sect. He heard various stories about the wickedness of the Second Republic, and of the terrible ways in which humanity tried to play at being the Pancreator. For young Kristopher, the fall of the Second Republic was completely understandable, and to him, only the egotism of humanity kept them from foreseeing it.

Kristopher took up robes at a very early age, and was one of the youngest people to ever be inducted into the Inquisition. He relished this role, and he views himself as an ever-vigilant guardian against another fall of civilization. Over the years, Brother Kristopher has risen in the ranks of the Avestites. He is now a Deacon in the sect, and an extremely experienced Inquisitor. And at no time has he ever doubted his calling.

One exploit that continues to be a problem for Brother Kristopher is a mission a few years ago that lead to the discovery of a cell of Ukari BAVA terrorists: they had been stockpiling high-tech weapons in a warehouse on Sutek. Brother Kristopher lead a small team of Inquisitors who broke up the cell, and destroyed the weapons. Unfortunately, the Ukari have had long memories, and he has twice been targeted for assassination by BAVA.

Personality/Motivation: Brother Kristopher is very much the classic Avestite fanatic. He believes, passionately, in the dangers of technology, and will not hesitate to punish those he feels have trespassed against the laws of the Omega Gospels.


Identifying Quote: "Do you want another fall? Now, when civilization is trying to climb out of the hole we dug for ourselves? Have we learned nothing about hubris, and the laws of nature? Nothing?"

Appearance: Brother Kristopher is a handsome, fit man in his mid-thirties. However, he usually covers himself from head-to-toe in Avestite robes, so few people really know what he looks like.
