Seven Champions: Relic

By day, Andrew Fisher is a well-known writer of horror fiction. By night (or when the need arises) he is Relic, superhero necromancer! He gained his powers from discovering The Forbidden Reliquary, an ancient library hidden under a remote Scottish shrine. He turned the tiny ruined church into a home, and the Reliquary became his secret hide-out while he studied the magical tomes within. He wondered why the books were buried rather than destroyed until he found letters from an unnamed monk who believed that even though the books contained great evil, they could still be turned to become a force for good. Andrew hides his secrets carefully, though some of his newer novels reveal a much darker, fractured side to his personality. Unsurprisingly, the books are selling extremely well.

Dirty little secret: Seriously – this guy is reading Evil Demonic Tomes That Will Tear At Your Soul and thinks it’s going to turn out allright in the end. I ask you.

Notes: Repeat after me: Superhero Necromancer. Any questions?

  1. @benpop I picture him more of a Dean Koontz myself :D

    @Jay Thanks! He’s one of the Seven Champions inspired by the Seven Champions of Christendom – in this case, St Andrew. His relics (a finger bone, part of his skull and fragment of his cross) moved around an awful lot, including spending a while in a Scottish Shrine. That gave me the name, the link to old bones and a shrine. He also wrote the apocryphal Acts of Andrew too – so there’s the writer link. I don’t think he wrote horror stories in his spare time though. But he could have.

    The rest was just an excuse to use the phrase “Superhero Necromancer” and get away with it :D
