Padre by DennisDarmody Padre by DennisDarmody
"Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none." (Ezekiel 7:25)

"There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked." (Isaiah 48:22)

"Oo-rah!"

----------
Former United States Marine, now detached military Chaplain, taking his training, hardening, and general bad-assness to the fight against the hidden and supernatural evils of the world.

No garlic or wooden stakes for this Padre, just a good old fashioned Marine ass kicking, and a cigar, to get the job done.

----------
(Going for common era, maybe a decade or two back, at most.)

Padre would be a great third party character in the Hellsing Series since he isn't actually Catholic but at the same time isn't an ally of Hellsing.

I can see it.

A friend of mine started writing some brief fiction with Padre and it is one of the best things I have read in some time.

Also, Padre was a NPC for a Werewolf game my friends and I were playing.

Just a character with so much to explore story-wise.

nice! Marines don't have chaplains though. should give him some MARPAT cammie pants, and a big damn scar on his cheek from shrapnel, instead of a shirt give him some IBA (body armor), and a big as belt of machine gun ammo. also put an M16A4 on his back. I really want to see if you can do this. it will kick ass, as if its not already lol. Im loving this work.

Yeah, I know USMC doesn't have chaplains. His story was that he used to be USMC, and then at some point after being in the Marines, or maybe even whilst still in the Marines, decide to take up the Holy charge, and so jumped whatever hoops to get himself to be a chaplain. Now he is operating with a detachment as a monster hunter.

I'm glad you like it. I have been thinking about doing another piece of this character... a revised edition, if you will.

Well, this image wasn't really created for anything specific except to put an idea I had to paper, so to speak. The idea of this character was later used by some friends and I for some Werewolf role-playing sessions and then again in a friend's short story.

I appreciate your praise.

Thanks! I really appreciate it! Even though it is a relatively recent piece, I have already given thought to redoing it or maybe continuing with a series.

I love this picture! Now that's the kind of priest I need ^_~ But no, this is just just all around awesome. I really enjoy his cross and dogtags, they caught my eyes after my first chuckling reaction. (I am so amused by this!) Great work!
