Bon Winfield CassidyRace/Lineage:
Demon Possessed HumanConcealment:
Avoids churches, religious/holy artifacts or jewelry, prayer, showing off at the gym, and people who make him angry. Sex:
Bon dresses like any human with a pretty casual fashion sense: jeans, tanks, button-ups, compress T-shirts, long sleeves, etc. Whatever he’s in the mood for, he tends to just throw something on. His hair is black, short and layered and eyes snow-grey. His skin is tan and physique athletic like he spends a few hours at the gym on regular occasion. Upon first inspection, he looks to be a man that can hold his own. There is rarely a wrinkle of fear on his face even when in the most dire of situations. He is seasoned like the hair he at times neglects to shave from his face and the numerous scars that cover his body from stabs, gunshots, burns, etc. When utilizing the powers brought by his possession, odd runes appear on his body in black, depicting an ancient, inhuman language. His eyes can shift from grey to yellow, red or black and his features can take on mild, horrific transformations. Small cone-like horns tend to appear about his hairline and his teeth tend to sharpen. When the Demon of Wrath, Agmadin Selika, settles into his body, Bon’s body often expands to accommodate it, going from 6’3” to nearly 9’, depending on the level of rage. Overall, he’s a good-looking guy. It’s just a shame he’s such a dick.Age:

You can refer to my O/Os in my signature.
Character Ons: Bon likes a woman who is just as much of a smart-ass as him. One who is strong (doesn’t have to be physically), beautiful, and has a good head on her shoulders. Flirty, clever, out-going, and who has a sense of humor. He is also a sucker for the good girls. The sweet and innocent girls who are his complete opposite.
Character Offs: An overly-sensitive woman, whiner, and attention-whore. Religious people, weaklings, and holy objects.Place of Birth:
The Bronx, NY Personality:
Bon is a lone wolf by nurture. He’s used to being unable to rely on others to get shit done and so has taken it upon himself to always solve problems whether his own or apart of his job. He is reckless when it comes to teamwork. If a decision isn’t made quick enough, then he’ll go and handle it, and he’s pretty damn good at improvising. The man is known to be fearless, and you would be too if you were possessed by demons. This makes him pretty handy when it comes to taking on dirty jobs or delivering unsavory news. He’s cocky, can be a smart-ass, and believes that there isn’t a chump out there whose face he can’t punch in. On the other hand, Bon is a somewhat good listener, it just depends if: a) he likes you, b) you’re hot, and c) you got something important to say. One can always expect an honest critique or opinion from him—honesty is one of his best assets. He’s stubborn, and he’s never wrong. Don’t argue, it’s a waste of time.
Now, what you’ve been waiting for. The man has anger issues
. Being a harbinger of wrath isn’t easy for the demon feeds off of his anger and has made him quite the tripwire. Bon when pushed the wrong way will attack. He is that guy who when in a bar chooses to punch the face of the largest and scariest guy there. If there’s a bar fight, there’s a high chance Bon is involved. To help him with his problems, he goes to therapy and learns “calming mechanisms” to lower his anger level before it gets too high. He also goes to Anger Management for shits and giggles (eh, it’s mandatory). Over the years, he has learned to control his temper and has learned to recognize when he’s getting irritable and will make an effort to take a step back.
Alone is what he has been for quite some time. It wasn’t until he joined The Sentinels that he found beings that he could somewhat call friends. He was never good with relationships. Women can’t stand his temper for it scares them and makes him quite the liability at times when in situations of provocation. Bon, no matter how angry he gets, will never lay a hand on a woman. That ethic is stronger than even the demon that controls him. He keeps women at a distance so that they don’t have to suffer such a sensitive relationship. He’ll fuck you, but refuse to be your boyfriend. Bon’s hypothetical summary of a relationship is: “If I wasta’ go wit’ you, I would love ye’ with all of my heart, and den if I see anoter man lookin’ at ye, I’d kill’im, and den you’d be mad, and I’d be mad at ye; and we’d fight, ‘an argue, and then I’d wind up cursin’, and your feelins’ would get hurt, and I’ll say things I didn’t mean, and ye’ll break up wit’ me.” Almost sounds like it’s happened before. Oh, and did I mention he’s Irish? Quirks:
Right eye tends to twitch when he’s secretly angry, but doesn’t want to make it known. At that point, he’s using the mechanisms he learned from his psychiatrist to calm down. He has many of them, and sometimes people think he’s crazy when he’s reciting them. Hey, it’s for your benefit! When asleep after a night of drinking, he tends to snore louder than a subway—not exactly a good cuddle partner. Alcohol tends to be a problem, often times making his temper worse, which is why he never drinks before a mission if he can help it. Eh...
maybe one quick shot depending on the difficulty and if there’s a high chance that he’s not going to like it. Besides booze, he’ll smoke cigarettes to calm his nerves, and unfortunately, there aren’t enough cigarettes in the world to stop him from rippin’ some guy a new one.History:
Bon grew up in a dysfunctional family. His father left his mother long ago when he was an infant, and as he grew, his mother raised him along with her many boyfriends down the line. The one she wound up marrying was Steve Thomas, a so-far successful drug dealer and mechanic. He, however, never told his mother about his drug dealer occupation and as long as he brought home money from his supposed mechanic job, then nobody asked questions. One day, a failed deal attracted some ugly attention from the gang he was working for. The gang came to Bon’s house hoping to find the man who hadn’t showed up to work that day. They found only a boy and his babysitter watching toons on the TV and took them hostage. His mother’s and stepfather’s failure to answer their phones cost the two their lives. They put a bullet in them both. The babysitter died instantly, but Bon wasn’t so lucky. Scared and growing cold, he was left to bleed out, and as he died, something came to him and spoke to him: Boy, how badly do you want to live?
It was a question he would never forget.
Bon’s mother and stepfather both went missing after that night. Police had him placed under foster care. He moved to live with his grandparents in Wicklow, Ireland and they took custody over him unaware of the menace they had let in. As Bon grew up, he got into fights at school, and even went as far as to kill a kid on accident. He was sentenced to a Catholic Children Detention Center, and it was there he faced much torture. The priests were quick to notice the evil that had made nest in his body and were determined to get it out of him. It hurt. It hurt, it hurt, to be there, to pray. He was forced to do so, and as a boy, he was gullible enough to believe that the priest’s actually could free him. They made promises to him that if he cooperated with them, then they would let him go outside and play with the other boys and girls. It had taken years for the priests to fulfill their promise for he had spent many as their guinea pig. When Bon was 13, as a birthday gift, the priests allowed him to finally go outside. He joined a group in a game of rugby and had a blast. He was an excellent player and his team fell in love with his enthusiasm. Jealousy, however, is an ugly beast. One of the boy’s had grown envious and didn’t like the fact that his team was losing. They had to take out the star player, and in one play, the entire enemy team sacked Bon. It was supposed to be a harmless display of aggression, but they had broken the boy’s wrist. The accident triggered his rage, and the wrath Bon unleashed on the boy was so strong that no one could stop him from pummeling his face into a bloody pile of brain matter. His strength was extraordinary. He had resisted priests and law enforcement. It didn’t help that he was angry at himself and everyone for believing that he could be saved. He fled the detention center, his grandparents, and Ireland all together, and for many years, the Catholics lost track of him.
Bon had returned to New York and over the years, he worked at restaurants, getting paid under the table, and even worked at a tattoo shop. When he grew older, he became a bouncer at a strip club until one fight led him to kill a man. He was sentenced to prison, and while in prison there were many thugs who fed his demon. His behavior got him placed in solitary confinement, and it was there he stayed for many years. During those years, Bon had lost a piece of himself, which turned him into the cold asshole he is known as to this day. A secret group of sentinels visited him one day and with their strange gifts broke him out of prison. His record and existence were erased from the minds and books of the law. Bon moved from New York to Highland City where he was able to start over. He works for The Sentinels on their task force, and as a civilian makes a living owning a tattoo parlor called Pirate Bay
Actual Father: Arthur Cassidy (Alive) – Elderly
Mother: Julia Warrener (Alive) – Elderly
Step Father: Steve Thomas (Alive-maybe) – if alive Elderly
Grandparents: Ethan and Olivia Warrener (Now deceased)Special Abilities:
(In summary) Bon’s possession grants him enhanced physical and mental abilities. He has inhuman strength, can leap great heights, and run up to recorded speeds of 45mph, and faster depending on his level of rage. He knows when someone’s around without needing to see, smell, or hear them, a trick mostly due to his ability to detect souls. Mentally, he isn’t easy to control by those with psychic abilities due to the fact that other entities inhabit his body, and incapacitating Bon makes him unable to control it. He can detect beings both celestial and demonic as well as sacred objects. His demons allow him to communicate with other demons, devils, and angels.Demon Count:
It is the evil presence that naturally envelopes him. Animals, spiritual creatures, the arcane, and beings of holy affinity can sense it and usually find it suffocating. Priests and nuns fear and avoid him, and most tend to steer clear of him—well, until they get to know him. Sometimes his frank personality is enough alone to keep someone at bay. Telekinesis:
Levitating objects, rearranging of furniture, walking on walls, and body contortion; on a good day, he can do all of that crazy shit. Exorcism:
Bon can use his demons to force other demons to leave the bodies of others. His demons are violence and fear and their aggression can be used in The Sentinel’s favor to force other demons to flee. Immortality:
As far as Bon’s age is concerned, his demons have slowed, if not stopped his aging process so that their host can remain young and in peak shape. Bon is unable to die by natural means or by normal methods. The bond his demons have with his spirit is so strong that exorcising them would kill him, and not exactly put his soul to proper rest. As long as the demons have his soul, he’ll never know peace in the afterlife only torment.Multiple Possession
: Recently, Bon has shown the ability to be possessed by more than one demon. This has made the mystics of The Order curious, and they wonder if there is a limit to how many demons he can possess before they drive him to madness.
The Sentinel’s have classified Bon’s anger into levels after countless observations. Below are the levels in detail along with percentages of Bon’s susceptibility to holy magic as decided by the GM: Agmadin SelikaIrritation – Level 1
: The most harmless of levels, but enough to get his heart vigorously pumping. By that point, Bon is trying to use a mechanism to calm himself down or escape the source that is making him feel such a way. Loose objects tend to vibrate in his presence as though a small earthquake was near, and it’s mostly a reaction to when Bon is trying to fight the demon that is pumping anger into his system. The longer it takes him to calm down, the more vigorous the tremors become. [20%] Anger – Level 2
: In this state, Bon is physically in a brawl or cursing someone out. He is seconds from getting violent if not already. His face is flushed red, and if he’s still resisting the urge to ascend onto the next level, objects are flying everywhere. In this state, he is still capable of being calmed, whether with soothing magic or words. It takes a lot for him to come down once he’s started to climb, which is why he can’t do it alone. Level 2; he’s a threat and level 2 usually doesn’t even exist for if left to his own devices, he’ll instantly scale to level 3. [35%] Rage – Level 3
: At this point, Bon’s eyes have changed and the demonic language has wrapped his body. His muscles have increased in size and lo’ the one in his line of sight. Lo’ the one who has pushed him to this point for he won’t stop until the afflicter is dead. Like a wild animal, Bon lunges into combat and his strikes are swift and wild. He’ll claw, he’ll use his teeth, he’ll deal dirty shots to the groin. He’ll spit, kick dirt, whatever leads to him inevitably taking down his opponent. If he manages to get his hands on you, you’re done. His strength allows him to rip a man to bloody pieces and his demon pulls his every string. He will have Bon ruthlessly attack no matter how many bullets are fired, stabs are delivered, and magic thrown. Whatever damage is done to Bon is not happening to the demon, so it could care less. In this state, it’s difficult to restrain him, but it can be done. Restraining him is encouraged and sleeping magic, soothing magic, exceptionally strong tranquilizers, holy magic or a psychic breach of his conscience to find Bon’s consciousness are the best methods to draw him back to the front and regain control. [50%] Wrath – Level 4
: After the ritual that turned the tables on wrath demon Agmadin Selika, the bond between demon and host were reversed. No longer having control of his host, the demon could no longer harm or threaten him as it saw fit. With the removal of the phoenix amulet, Bon can willingly allow his demon to become one with him and both demon and host become a threat. No longer human in this state, Bon is transformed into the demon Agmadin Selika, a nine-foot horned giant of fiery destruction. Level 4 is achieved through life-threatening, traumatic situations. [100%]Agmidio SimunTerror
: With the Agmidio Simun in his possession, Bon can send the demon to torment his enemies. The demon will latch onto its victim like a parasite and force emotions of fear to overwhelm the victim’s body. The demon feeds best on mentally disturbed and unstable victims. Only one with mental fortitude and self-discipline will be able to shake off the demon’s assault. If the victim doesn’t shake the demon soon enough, then the victim will become either paralyzed with dread or hysterical with terror. The end result will then be Agmidio Simun devouring the victim.Special artifact/item:
Handcuffs – there’s nothing literally special about them. He wears his broken cuffs as a reminder of the life he left behind. He doesn’t intend to ever go back to it if he can help it.Martial Skills:
Bon is a ruthless fighter as well as killer. His every strike seeks to fatally incapacitate a person, which is why when he trains or spars, he doesn’t do so seriously, and shouldn’t be provoked. Agmadin will gladly force him to render harm to friends or foes alike. It bears no discrimination. His favorite weapons are guns and knives, whatever weapon that can allow him to kill swiftly and demon-preferred MASCAL. However, Bon doesn’t need a conventional weapon to kill someone. He’s been doing it for a long time and can be quite creative when unarmed. The Task Force has taught him to better control his violent fighting style in the form of various techniques taught to all members of the Task Force. Weaknesses:
Bon never goes to church, avoids them, and often avoids clergy for their presence annoys his demon. He cannot handle holy objects; holy water burns like acid; and he can’t stand the muttering of prayer. You want to see him mad? Just do those things. An exorcism will kill him, and when Agmadin relinquishes its control over him, Bon will have to deal with the consequences. Even though he is human, Bon is susceptible to holy magic. Instead of affecting him, it assaults his demon, which can aid in pulling him out of a fit. Invoking the name of his demons can be used to banish them and inevitably end Bon’s life. Only Bon knows the names of his demons, and he tells them to no one
