Brother Matthias grew up in a Catholic orphanage in Germany. An unusually bright young man, he was monitored by those who had an interest in such things, and his studies were directed toward not just theology, but also history, heresies, and other esoteric issues. By the time he was 18, he was inducted formally into the Inquisition. Amongst his fellows, learning that what he always suspected was true, Matthias quickly awakened. He is now one of the Inquisitions foremost scholars – he speaks dozens of languages, knows countless forbidden texts back to front, and has developed a specialized test for determining whether an individual is possessed. Brother Matthias is an expert exorcist, and also specializes in countering the fell workings of infernalists, demons, and other fell spirits.

Brother Matthias has begun working with Brother George, pairing his knowledge with the Englishman’s hammer. Nephandi and infernalists across the globe have come to fear the pair.

Brother Matthias and his ally George joined Father Parker Rose in the search for a demon in Birmingham that was trading in souls. The Inquisitors did not get the best of the encounter…
