Still in Development!

Long ago, when demons and ghouls roamed the earth, five powerful and ancient warriors known as Nephilims, stepped forth to vanquish all that stood for evil. They were, the Goliaths, led by their leader, Jericho, these monstrosities were a group of highly trained gunslingers sent from the Gates of Beyond to protect the land of Delgado and it's residents. There numbers were scarce, but their powers were infinite, no mere demon would have ever dreamed of crossing paths with these supernatural beasts.

But as time passed, the never-ending riches inside the land of Delgado had begun to corrupt the minds of the Goliaths, all except their leader, Jericho, who was determined to save Delgado from it's never-ending oppressors. It was by destiny that this struggle came to be, granting evil the chance it needed to invade Delgado one last time. So in one final effort to save their home, the five Nephilims faced off against the army of demons, and ultimately triumphed.

Their victory was short lived however, as the minds of Jericho's comrades had fully succumb to evil. Defying the inevitable, he alone challenged his brothers in one last attempt to save their humanity. He fought astoundingly well against his former allies, and although it seemed victory was at hand, Delgado's final hope for freedom was ultimately denied as Jericho alone was no match for the combined strength of all his brothers. Jericho was ultimately defeated, and the Goliaths were no more.

Following his defeat, Jericho was hurled into the Pit of Anguish, a trench where both time and reality cease to exist. In this trench, he found himself in terrible agony, as the void kept him chained against his own will. With this, he remained frozen in time for over a thousand years..

"...Now, here in New Metropolis, the seal is broken, and I rise again!"

Personality

Jericho is described to be a very dark and brooding individual with a stoic perspective. He was very protective over the land of Delgado, and was extremely merciless towards it's enemies. His bold and fierce nature was highly respected among his brothers, and his wrath would generally strike fear into the hearts of demons. He generally spoke in a gruff tone, and because of his affiliation with the Goliaths, he always remained calm in the face of danger.

Due to his moral ambiguity, however, Jericho usually shoots first, and asks questions later.
