Character Spotlight : Father Kevin Goss

Father Kevin Goss, born and raised on Long Island joined the seminary at the age of 17 and was ordained into the Catholic Church at age 24. Transferred from his parish in queens to the federal hill parish in Arkham. Became aware of the mythos when he discovered that his church was once used as a meeting hall for the church of starry wisdom. Father Kevin Goss then reached out to professor Armitage in miskatonic to see if they had any information on the cult, what he found out surprised him, a journalist named Robert Blake once did a story on the church of starry wisdom but died before his story was published. Before his death he was able to send the professor a copy of his story with photos. Armed with new knowledge Father Kevin contacted the Roman Catholic diocese and asked if he can perform a cleansing ritual of the old church. Focusing on his faith, Father Kevin surrounded by his congregation walked into the old church and started the ritual. Many witnesses from that event said the very foundation of the church shook and an unearthly sound can be heard coming from the steeple of the church as a massive shadow leapt from the steeple and flew off in the evening sky dancing over the cobblestone roofs of Arkham. Inside the church, they found Father Kevin Goss – his hair now white as the fresh fallen snow of his old hometown Bethpage New York. He turned to the congregation and smiled weakly and said “My father’s home is now clean” then passed out. When he awoke days later, he resumed his duties at the church on Federal Street.  He is known to go out of his way to help anyone in or out of his flock and he is good friends with Prof.Armitage at Miskatonic University.

Character Spotlight : Leroy “Tatters” Brown

Born in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, the son of East Prussian immigrants Johann “John” and Matilda Brown, Leroy was raised on his family’s farm with five siblings. Leroy Brown felt odd from a young age as he claimed to hear a strange voice beckoning him to commit acts of violence He called this voice “Captain Howdy”: by the age of five or six he fully embraced the darkness that has latched onto him and he would go missing for hours at a time – during this time he would claim to have been in the presence of another world. He became distant from his family and he was considered a liar and thief and was sent to live with his Uncle Pastor Jeremiah Brown in Arkham, ma. In 1899 Brown was in Juvenile Court on a charge of assaulting his elderly uncle during a prayer session and was sentenced to 6 months in a juvenile center; in 1903 Brown returned to Minnesota and within months was in County Jail for killing a neighbors prized hog in a manner which the sheriff described as sacrificial; in 1903, at the age of 11, he  broke into a neighbor’s home and set fire to the home – the resulting fire claimed the life of his neighbor and her children – scared he planted evidence pointing the blame to his younger brother to take the fall for the crime. His brother was arrested and charged with multiple counts of arson and murder for which he was found guilty and sentenced to death. Soon after the execution of his brother, at the urging of “Captain Howdy” he murdered his parents and siblings leaving them arranged in a pattern naked. Fearing capture, he ran away and took to riding the rails following the whispered voice of “Captain Howdy”.
