The Fire-Drinker

Concept: “I will grant you rebirth… in flame.” (Fear)

“And on to general warnings for this Elysium… It has been brought to my attention that Devin recently had her work to gather influence in the local churches stopped by a local pastor. His name is Benjamin Crow, and he preaches in a Pentecostal church up somewhere in Marietta. He apparently drinks fire as an alternative to snake handling; our research into his background reveals that he was in a carnival before getting religion in World War II, so it’s likely just a trick. More importantly, Basil’s investigation of the man turned up a strong feeling of True Faith, including possibly the ability to sense the presence of Kindred.

“Until we know what we’re dealing with, Kindred of the city are not, under any circumstances, to engage with Pastor Crow. It’s entirely likely that he’s just a clever old preacher who noticed some irregularities with his friends in the business, but the Faith would make it dangerous to risk a confrontation. He’s old and has so far only been a nuisance, so it’s best to just wait him out. If you do catch wind of his involvement in any other Kindred business, inform your primogen or me immediately.”
