History

Paul Rawlings is the oldest active member of Jericho and is also the only member that originally began
his military career as a chaplain (Jericho squad is afterall a branch of the Army Chaplain Corps). He inlisted in 1970 and has 3 tours of Vietnam under his belt as a chaplain's aid. He spent the next 20 years searching for meaning and direction, a result of his experiences in the war which caused him to question his beliefs. He was greatly changed by the indigenous tribes he visted throughout his missionary and relief efforts, and found himself adopting various religions and beliefs, becoming something of a universal cleric. He's fond of saying, "There's no such thing as too many Gods when it comes to watching your ass". His request to resume active duty was declined by the Chaplain Corps, but the Department of Occult Warfare was eager to have him placed in the Jericho squad. The DOW sees his knowledge in dealing with the occult and the paranormal as an asset.

Personality

He has a quirky sense of humor, despite his grim appearance. In the heat of battle, and in the face of
danger, Rawlings acts like he's seen it all. He helped recruit Sgt. Church into Jericho and feels responsible for her. Whenever he is asked about his past, particularly when asked about his 20 year sabbatical, we get the impression he was somewhat of a rogue. Rawlings fears succumbing to his human nature again. His past continues to haunts him; he has fallen to many sins especially in his early years as a chaplain.

Combat Abilities

Regardless of being a man of many cloths, as he would say, Rawlings is an experienced veteran having
done tours in Vietnam and Iraq. His weapons of choice are a pair of customized automatic pistols, named Faith and Destiny, which are augmented by his own charms and talismans.

Special Abilities

Rawlings has an extensive knowledge in magic systems from around the world, but specializes in the
areas of concecration and exorcism. By using his own health, he has the ability to heal fallen teammates from long distances, which briefly leaves him vulnerable to attack. He possesses Vlad's Curse, which allows him to rob health from his enemies and distributes it to his teammates.
