Lecherous, Self mutilationAppearance: Personality: Father Lucas
Father Lucas is extremely pious, albeit his beliefs call for the torture and eventual murder of all that oppose his translation of his biblical studies. He is plagued by hedonistic desires that lead to his hatred (and secret love) of lewd or overtly attractive women. He is prone to distraction in the presence of women, and as such yearns to control his obsession as well as it's cause. He aims to purge the world of its sins and evils, supernatural and otherwise, he also sees himself as a martyr. He pessimistically believes that the dark elements of his lusts are incurable and he will have no place in the perfect world his actions will eventually create."Father Lux"
-"The Dark Priest"
Father Lux is shadow that seeps through into consciousness of Father Lucas. He is a creature of base desires, one that lusts for flesh and the corruption of the soul. He is hedonistic and sadistic, feeding on the self loathing and lusts of his other half. While in control of the body Father Lux does all he can to pervert and torment everyone that he can reach, preferring rape to consent, and torture to questioning. While dormant he can do little but force his stronger desires upon the mind of his other half, always waiting for a moment of weakness to exploit. Background:
Lucas Usher Xavier was born in 1535 to a whore and her pimp in a nameless back alley during a mid-winter night. Before his eyes even opened he was placed at the altar of a local church with no note and not so much as any swaddling. He was baptized as a child of god and raised to do gods work, the father in charge of him placed him in the choir and taught him scripture constantly. He was dedicated to his studies at a young age, seeing it as his only way to make up for his "freeloading".
At age 12 Lucas was sent to the Vatican by way of a traveling inquisition in route to Rome, and that is when his interest for the righteous cause was seeded. The inquisitor he was sent with took him as an apprentice of sorts, teaching him the ways to detect and reveal heretics, blasphemers, the possessed and the practitioners of the craft. His experiences were greatly valued by the young Lucas, but sadly he was also an adolescent boy in the midst of puberty. As such, he felt his first experience of lust during the prosecution of a village harlot accused of heresy, and was severely punished.
At 17, Lucas commonly wore a cilice, even beyond the normal periods of reflection required during prayer. This was his teacher's way to aid his spiritual purity. He learned to hide his lusts better, but was still unable to purge his mind of impure thoughts. He was given the title of inquisitor due to his conviction and the strict measures he put himself under in order to make up for his desires. The church saw his self hating actions as some kind of "proof faith", and awarded him the title even at his young age.
As Lucas began to go out on his own missions to purify the Irish countrysides he brought up charges against mainly women. His methods of wringing truth from the condemned included all manners of torture including mental and spiritual torment. He often attended to the physical abuse and binding of these women personally, a method he claimed ensured it's validity. He began feeling pleasure as he acted against these women, which he convinced himself was an effect of his virtuous actions. Soon, Lucas was chasing the passionate feeling of "purifying" the women guilty of the most heinous crimes.
At age 20 Lucas was ordained by the church in the midst of the dark reign of Queen Mary I, a gift for his blows against the enemies of god. In other words, the hundreds of women he'd beaten tortured and raped(never personally) into admitting to crimes. Though, his priesthood was short lived as some others discovered his drive to correcting the world was basely hedonistic. He strove only to satisfy his sadistic desires, and not for the will of god. Though, at that point his delusional faith in his own virtue brought him to a mental break, and he lashed out against those that accused him. Though, he never remembered this outbreak of violence and slanderous accusations.
After finding himself to be surrounded by those that believed him lost, he strove to find solace in the only thing that pleased him. He ventured out to find the darkest places and cleanse them of evils, which eventually brought him to Blackgate Castle.-A side note-
The darker side of the priest developed in his youth, even before leaving with the inquisitor. While living in the church that accepted him as an infant, Lux decided to show himself. Lux popped into existence when the boy reached 10, at the beginning of his pubescent period. The first action the darker half took was to sneak into the local brothel and find his mother. Lux spent months trying to discover which whore he commonly heard the nuns speak of, the one that peeked in every so often after he was found at the altar. Lux was quick to put two and two together.
When Lux found his mother, she was unconscious in an opium den, and so he slit her throat as she slept. the boy sat there playing with himself as her body cooled, then left and went to the church. It didn't take long for his bloody clothes to be discovered and the caning began. Luckily for Lux, his other half was so taken aback by the accusations he faced that he was easily pushed aside. Thus, Lux took the punishments and spat ludicrous accusations and lewd comments in return.
The wide shift in his personalities lead to him being sent to Rome, though with an added conviction and the watchful eye of his new tutor, Lux found himself unable to control the body. Though, he slowly found the ability to impress certain impurities in his snobby alter-ego. Lux found that the new tutor had effective methods to cause his other self to be punished, without weakening his resolved, which kept his fun short. Though, eventually Lux found that his body was walking around in charge of itself, "cleansing the world".
Lux was able to push himself into the mind of his other half, causing the increased savagery of his actions. This pressure every once and a while allowed Lux to take charge of his own inquisitions, sweetening his life all the more. Sadly there where members of the church that started rallying for his excommunication. Lux decided that this was unsavory, and in the state of shock, and bruised faith he found his weak half in, Lux took over. Lux slashed the good name of all his opposing priests, shaming them and destroying them as ruthlessly as he did any witch or whore. When they were safely removed from the church, he would hunt them down, and break them... mind body and soul.
For a while now however, Lux has been held down by the renewed conviction of the saintly Lucas. Perversion you'd like to try out:

Two conflicted personalities get separate bodies and kill each other, during sex, in the middle of a session of tormenting someone. Any of the many ways he has condemned his victims. Ons & Offs:
Likes innocence, meek women, those that are easily impressionable. Dislikes lewd behavior, poop and the idea of being controlled.
