Virgil - Pestilence (or Conqueror)


Virgil from Amerikan Hell, which can be found on Kickstarter:


An avid photographer and camera connoisseur. One of the devil’s “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” – Pestilence, Virgil was a vagabond traveler with an unhealthy lifestyle and bad choices in his youth. He never did one majorly horrible thing, but many significant crimes that came with no consequences.

One day, he asked for a change in direction to a higher power and he soon discovers a rat had eaten his last food. The rat wouldn’t leave him alone and Virgil found himself deathly ill. Feeling he deserved what had been coming to him, he accepts his inevitable death as mercy, but other homeless come into contact with him and the disease kills them, while Virgil lives on to carry the disease immune to its fatal symptoms while vulnerable to every other symptom.

His suicide attempts are thwarted by some higher power, which he believes “The Boss” is the one keeping him breathing to spread his priceless disease. He is the production member of Amerikan Hell. He embodies the horseman of Pestilence and uses his invulnerability to his own disease. He wants his own death.
