Part of the APKALLU Mythos: Year THREE, in events which are subsequentially refered to as Rapture, dating to MMXI.
The world is mobilized as Europe's (so-called) Democratic Unions cede the pressure to controversial policies (ranging from Malthusian economic devices to monopolizing the violence towards ethnic, racial or religious minorities as process of a jingoism) makes it into the government under collaboration with authorities of religious and military natures. The justification is biased through a mass media campaign against a referred "secret movement", of "terrorist nature". If such disputed faction does exist or not, it is obvious the blur serves as a facade for the ongoing spontaneous movements to either take it or leave it, so this "fictional faction" often works as a smokescreen scenario and the individuals which once gathered in an event or riot of such quality will more than likely pursue the overarching end of such plot - bringing State down with it.

Two "factions" protagonize the ongoing conflict:


  • The formal "Holy Roman Empire", which itself counts with support from independent nucleii inside important countries' official military, such as the special unit of the Teutonic Knights (at time, highly armored soldiers which are a part of German army but will also respond to a newly christened Austrian sovereign - despite his preposterous claim be ongoing debate), as well as sideline militias ellusively supported through finances of think-tanks of either neo-con nature or those promoting liberal economy. Those investors are kept in adamant secrecy but it's deeds are kind of obvious - favoring a secret round table of warmongering figures within European nations, the same which in the 90s were on Eastern Europe and the last decade, on Middle East. The Empire is more or less an enterprise, and is highly supported by a central church, The Western Roman Catholic, although it have other churches at "gun-point" due the vastness of its network. Ecumenical roles ties in to the moment of political unstability, so either unrecognized, albeit publicly supported, or even recognized, albeit strictly regluarized in national frontiers, the Inquisitionary Offices are the crude reality which make the Empire less a initiative and more a suppressive system. An increase in military ranks with higher support of volunteers, it's role is suppression of insubordinate elements which fit one or more of all it's incredible roster of absurd narratives. To turn it in categorical acceptance, many power-plays and publicity investors will defend a part or two of such conscripted plot to the acceptance of the newest Vicar, Leo XIV - in his revenge-seeking plot against the murder of the last helding it's title. It also stems from an eugenic plot conscripted as a "demon hunting" sequence. Whilst programs such as AXIS were secret and turned obsolete, by the rates that not only "demons" were known, they were freed, the fact that their range acted around so-called "Third World" in key positions machinated by facades of church charities, was apparent. The proof, however, was gone - the slave pits have been replaced by another kind of netwrok across the globe. By the year of MMXI, the church under Leo had a new visage - bring Heaven upon the Hell that earth has become. That suited most people's fears - they were all tirelessly afraid of Triton or Paynal for example, and competent authorities have failed to capture them for over two years, letting them even organize with humans. Ironically, such effort of the Church counted with help of Dragons, Vampires, Angels (Djinni) and mostly trans-humanist science.
     
  • The informal "Necoc Yaotl", which literally means "Enemy of both Sides", sides which in a transliteration could refer both to "Left and Right" ghosts of political spectre or else false dicotomies and the tendency of "Public or Private" management. It stands against the status quo and supposes search of self-sufficiency, but rather as the epitome or the climax of a revolutionary chapter - the unlocking of the current strains, which are more apparent than ever. No real "movement" exist, but media works like this. The name was borrowed from a strictly planned action by an affinity group a year before the current events. Anarchist movements and organizations already existed, but a militarized (through theft and appropriation) one, organized right about from a subsequent release of kidnapped communities through a traffic event planned by corporations and governments in a move unknown to the public, took this guise whilst on a retaliation attack in urban centres of the West (more specifically, a highly tourism-oriented economy city in USA's favorite satellite state in South America). When the "gang war" or "terrorist" narrative doesn't fit, neither it belongs to ethnical, racial or other kind of dispute, when they employ high technological suits with powers and even giant machines of heavy artillery and tactical features, the overall public retaliation went by the easy way. Such "phenomena" wasn't exactly understood by either MI-6 or CIA, but key figures were drawn here and there. After the Southern American incident, the third way or middle policies were requited to radicalize, to either face the times they were into - accepting the crisis affected other countries, displaced homes, families, destroyed ecosystems, or they'd die to protect foolish lifestyles and the maintenance of an overarching conscripted system where rich gets richer and the poor, poorer. Hard as reality, the multiple Necoc Yaotl are non-official, who will either form or disband it's "cells" to adress both local matters or to "lash out" (assassination of key figures, to luddism, property damage, sabotage, theft, as long as the cells planed and agreed to - leaving it's only hierarchy being the warning of the situation) at the globalized capitalism. Those involved in the riots and attacks will more than often disband it in order to pursue cooperation with a certain community which was "benefitted" from it (likely those who had no rights, or nothing but rights - on paper). But if he or she participated on that with a member of yet another of these "cells", a network of intelligence may come to be. Hackers, spies, and such do exist, but if they're unreachable, they pursue as well means to jam official security, as well as eliminate certain tendencies which pend to traditional crime lords - dependant on the system. That highly un-popular motives shadowed other forms of organization, but as well as served as inspiration to the unheard. Some would argue it was bringing back what the potentials thrusted at its "outskirts". Made the powerful remember that "people used to live there", where they saw only resources.
“You now have the option to repent of your sins and be electrocuted on the premises.”

CHARACTER
:                      
    Leo XIV (originally a Polish bishop named Wieceslaw Jozef Dziedzic), installed Inquisitorial Offices across several countries inside and outside Europe. His lifespan has involved him in many events. A character which was born around the end of the WWII, he's surprisingly living as active and outspoken against Soviet or Communist 'measures' (he has some kind of "trigger" to identify any act which pends for the slightly improvement of some social strata or relevant part of society through identitary units <hierarchy excluded minorities> into participating even in the most "theatrical" of democracies as so, don't even evaluating degrees on aspects as so-called authoritatian or liberal qualities between it, as if those policies are recurring part of a conspiracy led by secret forces he himself won't tell, acting with prophecy insight on pessimistic turn over inclusive policies, often masquerading economical concern over his bigotry), albeit changing in tone opportunnistically and adressing different qualities for a complex narrative concerning a "conscript enemy". His most repeated concern is a lifestory, either a fabrication or dishonest assumption, in which he was assaulted and lost his sight in an attack of his abbey when it changed from multiple hands (read it as he collaborated with the old regimen and then, was stripped off of powers from the soviets), he tried to paint with greater terror the soviet capability of disengaging the churches left behind by the old regimen in satellite states in Dalmacia, Polavia and Austria. Grown weary to the country of Czechoslovakia, he made use of it's declared independence to struggle on it's scenario of fifty percent Eastern and Western Church believers to make the majority rather oppose predominantly minorities and engage dissent to Belarusian government. It had, however, managed to stabilize such plot with it's own secret police, bribing of influent parties and buying elections favoring the current governors. The sects from the "resistance" parties of catholic majority are insignificant, and this led all the matter to rely on national level, leaving the priest alienated to it.
    Whilst his measures didn't resound of any importance outside the church other than para-military groups until some time, the success in public relations of the last two popes before him has led a mixture of opportunistical enlargement of his connections through distant rural abbeys, and a paranoid conscript fear among the directories of certain orders within the church ("Liberation Theology"). Needless to say, he is a supporter and co-conspirator within Opus Dei, and benefitted the Aragonese Ultras, spreading his influence from the Eastern Euopean scenario towards Western parts, with help of important allies such as Lacian Priest Giovanni Ferreti diPaola, about his age, he says, which introduced him farther to the increasingly important Argentinian priesthood, from where Operations concerning the Socialist State of Tahuantinsuyu were sketched, and from where he required assistance from bounty hunters such as Wagner Kantz, not yet the General he'd be, pivotal in masquerading a "transition" from the Brazilian dictatorship in a "democratic country". Mediating remnants of the old regimen, allies such as Ülhaden Corp, to those which managed the efforts out of it's supposed fall, such as Dominati Fabrica and a highly polluted joints of mafia from the historical Papal States, he has breached historical spots and maintained a series of pivotal militias in service of their agendas as parallel powers to support a centralized unit - the formal government. In a gang relation, these militias concerned only control of the public sentiment and it's formality, targeting but only the weakest links of society in an "higienization" process which didn't sound far from a legalized, regulated, and open-field witch hunt of political dissenters to "corruptive elements" as he'd declare. In effect, a less effective, yet still an holocaust, of certainly loose discrimination. It made some really conscient victims, nonetheless. Dalmacian and Sicilian mafias operated to cut costs, heading but their henchmen to cover for the priest's corruption and keeping his actions in shadows. His role was mediated as well by historical scenarios included in Ustashe and Chetnik phenomena, to which he, Giovanni and a series of Eastern Church bishops conveniently maintained to build up a black market which favored among other things, "liberalizing economy" (read that as keeping private properties to employ high security in repressive policies to start war [such as Yugoslavia's] in order to weaken separatist or unionist policies regarding the fabrication of satellite nations) in the Eastern block. That required a big deal of eccumenical effort in bridging the churches, opportunnity which he saw to act further from Poland and straying into the Baltic State and representing Catholic community in Russia.
    As if the "last bastion" between a cohesive Catholic State and a series of warring states in the east (Belarus, to Czechoslovakia and the Baltic Lithuania which among those, shared a "Commonwealth" Policy which favored his intrusion in political matters), he saw himself in disputing positions over becoming the vicar as a direct follower of John Paul, however, the cardinals proposed another exit for deals of representativity were as well regarded in the milennia old institution, at time following an increasingly inclusive plot which tied once again the interests of an European Community to the preservation of an important economy in the historical industrialized state of Teutonia. Between all this time, he's been capable of acting in distant missions, albeit recruiting demons as bounty hunters to keep properties claimed in African continent, such as human contingent on "orphans of war" context to which were raised for slave-labor in fields belonging to the different misionaries, in fields open to religious communnities. Known to the demon's parole in mafia joints, he and Giovanni worked to the scheme doesn't go out of control - Giovanni had his own group to contour the laws and fit it in the slightiest of civil society, while Wieceslaw not unusually would turn a demon against other in a bribing system. By the end, he kept further control of this economical initiative through the foundation of AXIS, whose principal was a vampire in life-debt to him and acting covertly in a place whose church was his jurisdiction. Captured by a bounty hunter the old vampire had no choice but to cope with the "principal role", putting into use his accumulated treasure in service of the church, mediated by a spot in Avignon which concerned a tactical spot for investors - Wieceslaw had ties in legal and illegal means, the legal ones were often results of the latter, and tightly protected by not-so-independent journalists, writers and think-tanks from Austria, which potentialized his vocal adress against state-control when it concerned Soviet-related governments or dictatorships such as Belarus, but was soft on it whilst operating austerity measures in recently turned independent countries, such as Kosovia. He's not easy to read, and has many dark implications on his account. Not surprisingly, he was made the vicar of Christ in the year MMXI, when his predecessor was killed by Paynal, figure which aggregated major political connotation, and he use to explore such concerns, turning in an easy game to joint him with more "organized groups", making the public see Paynal and others like him as disruptors of order, blaming the tense state of affairs on them rather than in the capability of the priest in mounting an army and making governments accept his agendas, pitting lesser countries at gun-point. 

          WIECESLAW
  • aliases: Pope Leo XIV
  • Powers: Other than profitting from child slave-labor, charities, and media on legal terms; as well as political immunity and power over mafias, militias, and playing a larger role in planified relations between the weapons industry (through economical advisors), he has possession of secret facilities and the technology imbued within it. His visor eyes expells deadly photon beams in the ways of a laser. It's actually a transmitter and has sensibility to the Djinni spectrum, identifying Djinn presence. Djinns are light elemental beings, which controls light, and manipulate elements related to fire, plasma and electricity, but have been developing photographic devices of mind-inhibiting usage, rendering people in illusory perceptions and devoid of proper sense of location - sometimes used to the enhacement of perceptions, though - none actually even the slightiest warned before applied in the subject. Cooperation with the Djinn has been sought as they've performed guardian roles in the slave-pits of Inferno and Jahannam, which by itself possibilitated most investments of a conscript world economy. As the slave-pits faded to more dynamic management, and the original plans of the Djinn grew autoctonous, isolated and self-indulgent, Wieceslaw's role was pivotal in implementing Angelic aid on his crusade.
  • Tools: His visor is an eye of God, devices which are connected remotely to the conscience (as if ports of a larger database) of an entity called Deus, a third of the original Djinn Elohim, which was split by the Sephirot Prism, in a destroyed planet dubbed "Eden" during the distant Topakhon Wars. The history was ongoing and the trio had pretentious and ambitious nature of governing other beings, trying to become like their creator. As their efforts for management were often disrupted by conflicts among one another, they ended up participating in on-going efforts of managing slavers and caravans around the Sinai and Arab Peninsula, coming as far as to Anatolia, but directly kept at bay, if not by the rulers of Kemet (civilization to which one of them, YHWH, was jealous of by it's architectonical greatness - devoid of the capability to read the slightiest of it's culture, despite his power of telepathy), by other Djinni like him which settled in Persia, enacting an academy which saw no use for their ways. Other Djinni, the former Triglav being which was also split by the prism, now as Svarog, Perun and Dazbog, managed some population with relative sheperd capabilities but relying mostly on living with and like wolves. While their population contigency didn't appeal to the Elohim, they were equally jealous of the Djinn and pursued fightings, being repelled constantly. As the Huns hit with migratory tendencies, the tribes united with the Scythian and the Triglav departed, whilst the Elohim were forced to retreat to the deserts. Deus, however, played a majoritarial role under a plan in the Roman Empire (itself a colony by the eyes of a galactic confederacy the Chronpuchian Empire, Empire which as of now rest in smaller domains and serves likely as a court and source for designers, researchers and architects of others intents) to severe connection with the larger empire, having controlled necessary land for it's own regulamentation. The plan used a decoy based in loose traditions of the tribes the elohim YHWH used to guide through tribal chiefs so far. From that, Deus was symbiotically fused to the Chronpuchian Sanctus, who dealt with tax-collector Matthew to promote pre-meditated insurrections. Their scapegoat was a dubious figure Yeshua Emmanuel, which came to personify a character named Iesu. You know the rest... The "eyes of god" can see either the now decaying body of Sanctus (some two millennia old) or the Holy Ghost of Deus in it. He spreaded his eyes by the rate aforementioned slave pits went after larger domains (through Iberian slave trade). The sole intent of slave pit Inferno, which mediated the domains of his and his 'brother' Allah, who was conversely more relevant to the slave pit Jahannam in Black sea, was to gather resources to fund intents related to the heirs of the powers torn apart in the Roman and Persian Empires, which were regarded as distinct competitiors for the favor of the Djinni's creator, which resided in the satellite of Ohrmuz, which had sporadic visits mediated by sheikhs which controlled the domains where once stood the Academy. Deus began investing on the crafting of Paradiso, architected by the same who made Inferno both impenetrable and incapable of being escaped from, unless it self-destructed. It housed his followers, whilst Allah's ones moreover served as enforcers in Jahannam and YHWH's powered up artificial bodies golems across Europe, such as the armor they clad to engage one another in the Armageddonn.
    Wieceslaw, knowing this plan, is just one of those which accounts for the timely expiation of all natural resources and world finance, being more a corrupt figure seeking final and ultimate piety, as if playing a role he was intended to, indiscriminately purging populaces into a oblivion he finds it unescapable - that has strong economical connotations of Malthusian nature, neglecting the role of finance and capital in empoverishment by painting an idyllic nature on enterpreneurship, accounted by mistifying key-individuals in roles no independent from historic strains. 


    THE YEAR MMXI
    The European Union, each of its members, as well other governments acknowledged by the UN as its members, have received Leo XIV's measures with mixed reaction, but part of the population and even some official institutions have collaborated to allow, and even promote the installment of Inquisitorial Offices, counting with the church's representatives, armed militias (some that act in collaboration with national security and army forces in diverse countries), as a measure to counter terrorism - since "the world witnessed, since July 2010, increasing action of terrorists across the globe, motivated by anarchy and destruction". Namely, Pope Leo XIV referred to distinct, informal groups of militant anarchist individuals recently armed by the theft and redistribution of military equipment realized by, among others, the infamous super-fast inhuman lizard-man Cuetzpalin Paynal, who claims to be a defender of the autonomy of the indigenous communities across the world, of animal liberation and the defense of the rights of the sentient beings. Distinct groups and individuals usually act locally, however through Paynal (who considers himself a messenger, rather than a strategic leader or manager like the always manipulative mass media like to portray) the "contact" between an independent cell and another has been more prolific. The only occasions he takes a leading instance are during armed conflicts, in which they're necessary for survival, as he's more protected than his human comrades, either physically or regarding the State's ability to identify him or use surveillance - any activist could be easily identified and persecuted by the State(s), but Paynal has no home or identity where the State(s) can look after.
Despite that complex background, Leo XIV, following the common misinformation spread by a mass media only less responsible for its role in keeping the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer than it's responsible for instigating childish fears and prejudice among population, believes that there's a global terrorist organization which he and others call the Necoc Yaotl (from the nahuatl "Enemy of both sides", one of the many names used to refer to the pre-hispanic Mexican deity Tezcatlipoca, a name Paynal adopted for a cell of rebels which participated in July 2010's attack on Rio de Janeiro, destroying much of its government's physical institutions, besides churches, banks, monuments and a wide array of private businesses, mostly foreigner establishments or local ones created for tourists. This is by no means the name of an entire international movement, however the mass media transformed it in public ideary, or a not so collective unconsciousness.
    Despite unjustifiable and unreasonable approach (does private profit accounts for reason? If it does, then it's ok), an array of organizations (from self-proclaimed right-wing to left-wing, conservatives to progressists, liberals, democrats to nationalists, and so on) across the globe acted in accordance with the church's outspoken necessities of creating an international campaign of Inquisition to end terror (even if it did temporarily restrict some individual liberties, arguably allowing persecution of dissidents, either political, religious or even sexual, by official authorities), in several cases, under official national security, what has enhanced the church's influence over the government's authority, claiming in each case a nationalist defense of tradition, even though the inquisition is international, which means the church is an international organ of surveillance, with private profit. Some sectors of the society equally opposed to the supposed international terror (a fraudulent hype fed by the same level of misinformation which privileges the State of Israel and vilifies any muslim individual, and which supposedly backs the profitable war on terror or make it any more socially acceptable) have still criticized the rise of Inquisitorial offices and its Inquisitors (some officially annointed by the Pope, others self-proclaimed, counting with their own paramilitary supporters). It's allegiance to other christian churches was also disputed, and depended on each case, but the vast majority of Orthodox communities from Europe supported the Catholic initiative in a direct level, as many of their enemies were already known by Orthodox communities - some neopagan villages across Teutonia (northern Germany), in regions of Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Dalmacia (which covers part of Bosnia and Hezergovina, Croatia, Slovenia and Albania), Czechkoslovakia (which covers the Czech Republic, part of Hungary and Slovakia) and Yugoslavia (covers part of Hungary, Serbia and Romania) were closely related to the distribution of military equipment from one of Paynal's long-time allies, the entity known as The Triton (who is known by Paynal's human counterpart or rather his original self William as the inhuman identity taken by the 16 years old human Gustavos Mauros, from Piraeus, Minoica [Greece]), and its ally the pyromancer who claims to be Dazbog (named after the Slavic God). Dazbog and several of his allies are Rodnovers, whose religion is the reconstruction of pre-christian traditions, and he sees it that the very autonomy of the Slavic peoples are threatened if they follow an alien religion, an alien god - a view not shared by all of his allies, even among the pan-slavic or "revival" militias, but what first got the Triton to meet him in person - at least two years back, the Triton, like Paynal, has casually destroyed a diversity of christian churches with bombs and other apparel in urban centers and in the suburbs. Some argue this anti-christian sentiment may prevent the organization of a working class revolution as the majority of the population is still christian, however despite anti-capitalists, both Triton and Paynal doesn't believe in or struggle towards a working class revolution, instead their common motivations are basically defined freedom for all sentient beings that should be only possible beginning with the destruction of all governments, the economical system, mass society and the sedentary model adopted by industrial civilization. This stigma among formal left-wing, communist, socialist, social-democrat and "progressive" organizations with the illegal actions perpetrated by the "Necoc Yaotl" has led several of them to join liberals in campaigns and propaganda against anarchists, with the intention to "dissociate the working class struggle or the general progressive struggle for rights from the terrorist militias", something that didn't surprise them at all, but only showed him how small and how corruptible the defenders of mass society can become.

    CREATING THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE
    Amidst the sectors which support the Holy Offices of the Inquisition of Pope Leo XIV's own project of restoring the Holy Roman Empire (his general distaste for the European Union, as well as his hatred for anything even sparsely related or compared to communism are some of his motivations for this bold and opportunistic military campaign), there's the Aragonese King, Carlos, the sucessor of the previous king Enrique slain by Cuauhtemoc, one of Paynal's allies, reportedly allied to the communist party within a larger Basque separatist movement, in the last month. Carlos claims to descend from several lineages of Holy Roman Emperors, and his increasing popularity is the first facade by which Leo XIV's plan of uniting Europe -and then the world- under a christian monarchy begins to be exposed. Eventually, Carlos acquires command over the semi-official Teutonic Knights, that despite semi-official, have among them several militants in high ranking positions within Aragon (in the APKALLU-IN LAK'ECH Mythos, Aragon isn't just the name of a state within Spain but all of the nation following the downfall of Francoist regime in the seventies. The Aragonese royalty, under King Enrique, has acquired a privileged status in the following constitutional monarchy), Teutonia, Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia. Because of historical conflicts and divergences, it proves a little hard for the Teutonic Knights to gain favor from Dutch, Lithuanian and Polish governments and population, however the Pope's influence grants them some autonomy to act internationally. The Teutonic Knights are often portrayed by the mass media as an official guard of Teutonia, as well as a military order of the Catholic Church which displays mutual interests with other christian communities - even though they are just a part of the germanic military, and one whose authority is still disputed by certain sectors of the parliament.
    Once aware of this delicate situation, Leo XIV himself visits Teutonia, visiting the official Inquisitor, Heinrich, and making sure the opposition will either formally hand the teutonic military to or fuse it with the Teutonic Order, or die in sorry accidents to be replaced with other politicians aligned with the (christian catholic) religious public's needs. It was during this meeting of teutonic authorities with the church that Carlos decided to accompany Leo XIV - Carlos has several strategies of self-promotion, including financing "cultural events" and also the claim that he survived a direct attempt at his life from Paynal, what he actually did, in the same occasion his predecessor Enrique died. Carlos' public acceptance in Aragon was initially more divided, as was it in the political sphere - he's got little political experience due to his age - however Leo XIV's influence made it easier for his ascension to power, as did the military intervention (which some claim a coup) to put him in charge, even though he's not Enrique's son, but a nephew. Carlos claims to descend from the royal family of the Bourbons, that have been deposed in the third decade of the previous century, when Spain witnessed it's second Republic. This fact has been met with animosity by conservative, far-right traditionalists who believed Carlos would turn Aragon (which name derives from Enrique's lineage) "back into Spain" - something that besides changing the capital from Madrid to Toledo, shouldn't make that much of a difference, as Aragon retained spanish as it's official language - meaning, from a constitutional monarchy accounting with an elected parliament and membership within the EU, barely granting the autonomy to the Basque, Catalan and Gallician communities, into a supposedly autocratic, but actually theocratic, unitary and imperialist kingdom with no regard for "other spanish nationalities" (the Basque, the Catalan, the Gallician and even the Aragonese). Carlos' plan, in collaboration with Leo XIV's own, however, was even more ambitious, and if achieved could surely disappoint some of his current spanish and aragonese supporters for its pan-European objectives: he claimed to be a heir from the Habsburgs, a lineage of Roman Emperors from Austria that has lost its direct political authority since the return of Otto Habsburg to Austria after the WWII Teutonic occupation. That claim is disputed, however, as despite he may descends from one of Otto's children, Otto's heir, Karl, became an influent politician that for his own security didn't make any claim to the throne. Carlos, on the other hand, doesn't make it formally, instead, he start to promote an international european christian democracy, which is practically the same Leo XIV is already arranging - through the Inquisition (how much an Inquisition-backed kingdom can be a liberal democracy? Both are compatible and very similar if you ask me, surveillance and control, the elites, all elements are still there, but as some of the wealthier people just can't live another life, they start to use whatever excuse to further exploit the most they can, not because they have something personal against "the poor" [not necessarily workers, poor also means unemployed, individuals and communities existing at the margins of a vertically built institution], but because their lives and lifestyles automatically depend on it. It isn't even a matter of a personal choice, but a part of a system in which individuals have no control over their own fate and decisions, all are set by those that gather and produce more "money" - through the efforts of many others that depend on them for their most basic needs).
    One of Carlos' original critics, the neo-conservative Vitorio Manfredi (previous member of the AXIS Institute as the secret Agent Sigma, he was the son of a deceased Italian futurist, industrialist and nationalist Sergio Manfredi, who was later adopted by Jorgen, CEO of the Ulhaden Corporation, a Teutonic weapons & military equipment development enterprise, associated to the AXIS and itself developer of part of the Alpha-Omega armor series which the Sigma is part of), has become his ally since Carlos' popularity among conservatives grew, and his relation to the Inquisition seemingly posed an actual threat to the current conversion of the European Union into a 'chamber of degenerates', for the Inquisition and Carlos' proximity to Leo XIV, a staunch defender of a restoration of a Holy Roman Empire (while keeping a limited autonomy to its nation members, as long as they enforce christian religion and identity) sounded like, to the political illiterates, like a more conservative version of an European Union. Carlos, however, promoted such transition smoothly with his propaganda of a christian democracy, something which first led Vitorio to criticize him, both personally and through Vitorio's own puppet neo-conservative, economically liberal think-tanks. Either way, because of the military support the Kingdom of Aragon (which conservative sectors hoped to convert into a Kingdom of Spain once more, no matter the difference would only be felt, of course negatively, to the populations that speak other languages other than spanish) supplied the Teutonic Knights, Vitorio was instructed by his current mentor, Marco Friedenreich, that their interests were shared by Carlos and Leo XIV, it's just that Carlos would lead the transition, while Leo XVI would be the spiritual leader. Marco also assured Vito that Teutonia, Lacia (Italy) and Austria would still be sovereign states within the Holy Roman Empire, as it was more likely a way to rid those nations' societies from the 'socially liberal degeneration' brought by years of internationalization. Marco is also an ex-AXIS officer, as Agent Pi, and like Vitorio keeps the legal ownership of his armor (albeit in dispute concerning usage outside of European Continent). Showing their support for the development of the Holy Roman Empire, Pope Leo XIV has granted them knighthood and as part of the Teutonic Knights they have been crucial on its campaigns in the East (despite the Orthodox Church of Russia's original animosity towards the war on terror and restoration of order in the west, its government declared to stand against obscurantist displays of power, and calling the attention for possible campaigns of this self-proclaimed Holy Roman Empire in Russian territories, it reported to strike back).
    Leo XIV sent spies to Czechoslovakia, Belarus, Lithuania, Ukraine and Russia, that would stage armed conflicts among paramilitary groups linked to diverse fronts. Eventually, the Belarusian KGB would guard its borders and violently retaliate any advancements - which, in one occasion, had Marco and Vitorio detained by Belarusian authorities, what earned Carlos and Leo XIV a hard time trying to set them free with the armors intact. Only once this advancement has been launched, right-wing sectors within Belarus claiming for a restoration of its christian identity started to take a more vocal support for the Holy Roman Empire campaigns and the Teutonic Knights. Belarus has been ruled since 1994 by the same supposedly democratically elected, but actually forged leader, who according to some of his oppositors in the first years of rule has adopted a Soviet nostalgic leadership. This doesn't mean much as while both official patriotic and communist parties of Belarus support him, there's opposition from both sides, too. After years of political persecution, obscurantism and surveillance, though, it's becoming harder for any opposition to stand a material chance, what had part of it - especially the defenders of a christian democracy - willingly vouching for an exchange of an imperial dictator for another.

    ECCUMENISM
   
His long-lasting predicaments, employing his agendas for over six decades, has led him to some dangerous exposure, but Wieceslaw has managed to mend it by constant use of the public commotions concerning priesthood. "Severe", "traditional" values often put him in equal post to the Eastern Church. As the Eastern Church considers itself autocephalous, having as many as there are countries, it leaves open to define new abbeys and administrative central powers when separatism manages to be effective, or to further limiting it when it's unsuccessful. Growing alienated and alienating communities, such church finds a conscripted collaboration with relative independence to each and every other "autocephalous" domain. This brings most virtually to join with the archbishop which is situated in a most powerful country of all with significative percentage of Eastern Church Abbeys, from which investment reaches it.
    Archbishop Kiril of Moscow has ties to traffic in many regards, concerning drugs and other thievery. All of this keep the relations with the fourfold frontier of Dalmacia (West), Czechoslovakia (North), Yugoslavia (South) and Dacia (East), a "special zone" occupied and pacified by United Nations, hanging by a thread to which he recurs to other religious elements, more than often recurring "missions" to secure the borders and enter in agreement with investors of his "cartels". Ends up these missions serves more as recuiting militias of orphans of war. That bring him in a level of cooperation with the Lacian Priest Giovanni Ferreti diPaola, publicly known to "having resisted corruption from Sicilian Mafia", but in fact, just replaced a famiglia with other, plunging it more covertly after each transition, making his role perennial. These priests of distinct faiths managed to be of exclusive importance in the bribing system which became crucial in managing slavery transactions ever after the chechen revolts brought special administrative zones in the Caucasus, severing spots of transition in weapon-traffic. Taking advantage of the scenario, both of them either direct a side of a radicalized group (Ustashe or Obraz) and pinch it with nationalistic or ethnic bias, to target them in futile fights against immigration polices on an ignorant "war on terror" program. This greatly affects the rise of autonomous notions in political management of Eastern countries, lending to them but as "drones" of the Eastern Church which contend for "tribal matters". This scenario was challenged greatly by the crescent so-called "autonomous" communities under the so-called Pagan (sometimes reconstructionist) scenario, which was originated from autonomous, spontaneous groups, declared to be ever-existing, and used more or less as national stratagems against loyalists or nostalgic personnel to the Soviet Union. While they were just cultural fads easy to capitalize, the church showed mild regard, but by the rate the same nationalistic and tribal nature affliged their sense of territory, ownership and property of rural lands to urban centres, they've entered in the political arena with the militias the both churches supported, needing to introduce formal authorities, one of which was the indistinguishably criminal Dazbog.
    His campaigns against churches brought massive hate, but secretly gathered supporters from every corner, albeit lacking in stance of materiality and longevity - for his independence wasn't previewed by investors of such para-military groups. By late 2009, the communities abandoned the national factor of their narratives and favored commonwealth between them, having claimed enough armament, ranks, investment and reliable sources of supplies. That only summed with autonomous anarchist groups, predominantly from Minoica, after severe times of conceding properties from one another, turning the movement in a blur between left and right, to which costed autonomy of some communities, and restarted riots elsewhere.
    The joints were left severed by black-markets such as the priests', plus the uprising in the East breached in previously thought to be "pacified" fronts. Riots and demonstrations erupted in the United Kingdom, Aragon, Austria and Teutonia, for example, taking a greater international notion with environmental and grassroots matters brought in Scandian Norrland, where church-burnings resumed in underground scenes, and were properly appropriated in Baltic states and followed as far as Russia. Dazbog became deeply hated but controversially increasingly popular. The effects of Paganism rendered a distinct informal religion to compete with the staunch ones and sought to reveal the scandals in such "traditional role". Secular countries such as Burgundy and Norrland started pressuring those that albeit declared as so, conceded privileges to religious authorities - numbering Teutonia and French Gallia, for example.
    On that, as the church burning resounded as far as in Latin America, it became quite clear the intent of the churches and public securities (enforcement) across the world to sketch out narratives and characters for such deeds, depriving such acts from precise engagement against the monolithic church. Satellite states to the US government were running in such scenario, which was introduced to Wieceslaw and Giovanni sometime around the 70s, when they supported imperialistic tendencies by implementing relations between the archdioceses and earning trusts in missionary efforts, which often put them in contact to the so called reformed church and a direct management with the Inferno underground facility. Surrounded by plots of social unrest, the Sahel desert and tyrants in constant disaccordance ever since breaches of unity leading from the conclusion of the Gulf War, the Inferno facility was greatly helped by the reformed church on the guise of both private investment and neo-colonial management of the African West Coast. Wieceslaw owned some property around, where he managed to gather Djinni presence (and some would say, more "eyes of god" to be spreaded) and himself got to execute religious leaders in the vicinity to plunge in even more so unredeemable state the cover of Inferno's functioning. With every church on connivance to the on-going slavery, charity served a purpose - painting good public relations and earning investment. Among that, Wieceslaw required allies with greater capability of international cover to operate even further in building up a scenario to contour the on-going unrest in Europe and make something of it (making Inquisition sounds acceptable).

    LE ROIS MAUDITS
   
Wieceslaw has had some repute which had prominence in the media coverage by the more or less it resounded sidelines of the highest vicar's "national unities policy", or by the rate it dissented governments which were unnefectively introduced to the veil of relations between organizations such as the European Union and UN. It was a conscripted place and role, and he was, despite staunch, aware that concessions should be done for the evaluation and implementations of his agendas. In order to secure the relevance of the church in more than ceremonial roles, he sought to maintain a series of investors for the plans which previewd a possible radicalization in the European scenario, recurring to people who had royal nobility backgrounds, and ease to aggregate both financial funds, and political stability. By time the church followed the concepts of national unities, in international cooperation. Plot which was easily to be dismantled once the effects of global capitalism weren't the slightiest hidden in recessions across mediternaean countries.
    People of which supported or were either directed by opportunistic plots or blackmailing which fit such roles were Gallian Adrien Louis Henri of Bourbon, a public figure, politician and enterpreneur with domains overseas, and his son, Philip Leonard Henri of Bourbon, which followed the basic military career and resigned after the service, and strayed from politics role in order to better engage think tanks as a more promising future in raising funds and exercising management of historical domains he's had, managing to evade 'neo-colonial' accusations, as he driven by some simplistic dishonest roles: employing local people, despite the obvious strategic gentrification and alienation of natives from their original cultures (a plot helped by the church in century-long lasting plans, in their 'white men factories').     Traits those which weren't at all followed by proeminent figure John Edward Gerald of York, a British man with remarkable military sevice in different fronts, which was far away in lines of sucession, but came clearer by last year under the political unrest killing or keeping away heirs to the throne. A reliable figure, he directly opposed the Triton in initiatives across the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Wieceslaw mediated the claims of one and otherdebating king  figures, one more clearly liberal in economical policies, highly adapting to a vast, dynamic network, whilst the other secured mostly a timely facade of service which requested time and expensive treatment in the making. All the while, in the administrative districts of Burgundy, other clamors from another branch of the Bourbon hit the scope of the old vicar.
    Aragonese Carl Habsburg played a major role in the intrusion of Teutonic military capacity into his schemes, mediated by a joint common to all: economic schools in Austria. Those directly affected the managers of the Union, and a spot was requested for the re-entrance of weapons master and economical manager Marco Friedenreich, and of political figure in mild exposition Vitorio Manfredi. They were more or less used to one another and settled the stage for a plot which was previewed by a former co-conspirator, Jorgen Zimm. Both him and Adrien distinctively collaborated and disputed many things from claiming resources, colonies, to lawsuits and policies in the Union regarding the management of debts, strictly opposing French Gallia and Teutonia, favoring national units in a so-called cohesive commonwealth. As both were out of board, Wieceslaw preemptively put their heirs to play their acquaintances, both gathering investments to an apocalyptic plan the old vicar devised. - Leo XIV's plan was so ambitious he aimed to reclaim Jerusalem, that despite being virtually in hands of Zionists, who could possible allies for his causes of world domination, they still didn't regard Jesus as the son of God, or their personal savior. For that, he counted with an extraterrestrial help, from the "Paradise" a foreigner land inhabited by "angels" and currently flying in space, that according to plan will be teleported into earth straight above Jerusalem, to install "a new Jerusalem". Leo XIV's actual plan was to rush world into Armageddon and forge occasions to simulate the biblical prophecies, not before making New Jerusalem and Paradise the haven for his closest allies, while all else of earth was devastated by nuclear weapons. He knew there wouldn't be enough resources in heaven to keep a large population - but he knew he was old enough and wouldn't last much longer (at least not as human. Who said he would remain as human, who said there isn't the possibility he'll become a holy ghost or even an angel?), so he just chose to destroy the unfaithful before God claimed his life. A true christian's devotion.
   

ENEMY

    Anything he may put into the old stories - degenerates, witchcraft practitcioners, non-believers, immigrants, - given time and location. A sly figure, recurs to populist talks and ideas on many differently often disassocited biases, but with many rhetorical devices to craft his own stories. The problem concerns less the public figure - involved in both legal and illegal, his corruption spans many different roles of human activity. Known to promote persecutions and do it publicly, the major threat are issues and lynch which happen outside the sight of any lens. Employing demon, angels, humans and anything in the between, he's a pivotal figure in making the use of a deadly conspirer - Deus, often put as a dusty relic in the tombs of Rome, or as a ceremonial presence so far, but has a mind of it's own - a mind in thirst of the carnage the Pope promises him.
    Individual enemies includes Dazbog, albeit he was symetrically just one among a million of children brought to fight for life in Yugoslavia, in events which couldn't be traced directed to Wieceslaw other than "supporting" the events which led him to that. Such background story is of no consequence to develop any sense of guilt or fate between the parties. Wieceslaw sees Dazbog more likely a demonic creature, but then again, it makes no difference.
    Paynal is a figure to which he not only put proudly in the church's Encyclopedia Daemonica, but as well as what he start to be a prime example of the return of church-burning teenage delinquence. That because he was in no sporadic movement - attacking a national patron sanctuary in Mexico, he was an enemy which the church didn't preview. His attacks in Europe costed the life of royal figures (even though he's acounted for two, he didn't kill Adrien, and Cuahtemoc was actually responsible for the death of Enrique), as well becoming a target for the restart of the regicide tendency. His last and most powerful personal crime would be killing his predecessor, Benedict, which had dark demonic powers as himself. Actually, contrariously thankful to his action, he sees that such a demon makes him only more fit to fill the role of the Church's main vicar. Demons such as the Triton are as well publically adressed, but he lacks information about it, leaving the opposition be played between Philip and John, which account a rivalry to the marine beast and also owes him symetrical media exposure: Philip protected the seas of Marseille in a blockade once, albeit stagnating the economy for a while and managed to landlock him in Australasian waters, rendering a highlight in his ventures in specific cities. John, on the other hand, was outlooked merely as a militar which served both UK and Australia, under the head of the Commonwealth. The Triton has been reportedly captured in Madagascar, in a party parallel to John's, just before he headed the Commonwealth. The current updates however, had literally reported the unit to having been massacred. As a sole survivor, he is of crucial role of the knowledge concerning the sea daemon and it's reputed human identity. Knowledge which the vicar often request, but that John proudly guards, to whose only acceptable bribe would be giving an upper hand in Anglican and Reformed churches on the Inquisitionary offices, on a move of strictly national force, deeply offending the Pope. He eventualy discovers Paynal's human identity, fact which puts him and John on par, but just securing both secrets to one another, till they either die with it - or their enemies before them.
