Osiris

Osiris was tall perhaps five feet eight, with broad shoulders, a thin waist, muscular biceps and triceps, strong legs all perfectly proportional. He had a golden tan which glowed with health and his head had his hair of gold cropped short.

A magnificent athlete, scholar and military man he had never been bettered in any endeavour. Many people believed him a God for his perfection.

Osiris inherited Ta-Mehu, the Lower Region in tWay from his father Geb and married his sister Isis as was the custom in the royal household, but the marriage was barren.

Against the wishes of his wife and advisers he travels to El-Kab in Ta-Shemau to compete for the “Coffin of Destiny”.

Her shape with rock hard flat stomach and slender biceps gave her an athletic but definitely woman’s physic. She was amazingly strong but her greatest asset as a fighter was her mind. Bluma had one characteristic of all great hand to hand fighters, she spotted instinctively her opponent’s weakness and the exploited it in an instant. She was also very adaptable if one tactic failed she could quickly introduce another tactic.

Very inventive, she often made up moves on the spur of the moment, without even thinking. Her weapon of choice was the sword with a light round shield used in the attack formation the Scythian employed, but she was equally gifted with the spear or bow. Bluma had for many years been worried about tWay and the rise of Set in Ta-Shemau and was now concerned at the army being built by Ta-Mehu.

A difference that immediately brands the wearer as rich.

Independently wealthy from investments in the stock market the former Special Air Services Officer, spent his time completing charitable projects and bedding pretty women.

Like many heroes, York was very reserved and people found him slightly aloof and cold emotionally. His childhood in English boarding school system had little emotional love and his parents were distant figures in his life. University and Army life were conducted much in the same manner. Always the leader in all endeavours, he had few friends and his female companions were really incidental in his life, until he met Veronica Goldsmith who was now very much his partner.

David inherits from his father John McCallister, the role of leader of the Sect, an organization sworn to guard the Jesus Blood line and Holy Grail.

   
b) Veronica Goldsmith

A brilliant girl intellectually, she was any man’s equal in intelligence and well read she could discuss literature and poetry in great depth and with passion. Her taste in music was also extensive and she enjoyed classical music and the opera, as well as pop, jazz and rhythm and blues. She also had a great grasp of business and when her father discussed any financial issues was extremely perceptive and intuitively knew the correct decision to take.

   
c) Roland Goldsmith

He was always dressed in black pin stripe suits, with a waistcoat and a gold chain, with a pocket watch stretching across his expansive waist. He had no dress sense and always wore bright striped shirts and colourful bow ties, none of which ever matched his suit. When he first married, his wife Vivian tried to colour coordinate him, but eventually gave up, not only on his dress sense, but on everything else about him and the marriage.  Roland (Rolly) to his close friends may be ugly and fat, but he was very rich and used his riches to gain power and control people. Rolly a member of the Sect reluctantly accepts David York and reconciles with his wife and daughter.

h) Ignacio Rossi
 

Ignacio Rossi was the South America’s Sect leader and was forty three years old and a close friend of Bill Travers. He was of Italian origin whose family had settled in Argentina nearly one hundred years earlier. Ignacio suited his name which meant ‘fiery’ and Rossi the surname which was derived from the Italian Russo for a red- headed person. Ignacio was of medium build on the stocky side but not fat, standing five feet ten inches tall who always wore smart casual clothes rarely wearing a suit. His fiery temper often landed him in trouble and the scars on his swarthy face told the story of his many fights. A successful businessman and generous philanthropist he had been a Sect member from being a teenager and was highly effective. His outbursts hid a thoughtful and meticulous planner who had deep feelings for his fellow man.

   
i) Yuri Cheramisin
 

Yuri Cheramisin was the current head of Russia could not have been more different.  Schooled under the Soviet regime as a child he was evasive and mild in manner.  Small in stature modest in his dress, with very little spent on his casual wear and suits from a department store.  He looked and acted like a minor official from a government department, which he had once been.  Yuri Cheramisin his family originally being a member of the Mordivan people of Russia was a self made billionaire of the Russian elite.  His fortune had come like many of his generation, from taking advantage of his knowledge of government and spotting a commercial opportunity.  His had been in telecommunications and the liberalisation of the airwaves for cell phones.  Quickly buying licences for very little and creating paper companies he sold on to other people or the public for a fortune. In fact Yuri never became involved operationally never had offices and only had very few staff.

k) Shreya Patel
 

Shreya Patel was very beautiful and the Sect leader of India at twenty nine with classic features and a slim curvy figure. The most devastating part of her appearance was her dazzling smile of perfect white teeth, which melted all hearts male and female.  Her wealth was all inherited from her family’s interest in steel, coal and manufacturing.  Shreya however was very astute at business and continued to grow the family’s wealth, following her heritance on the death of her parents when she was only nineteen.  Her father Vijay and mother were killed by an agent of the Cult and ever since then Sherya had been hunting and killing the Cult in India.  Her beauty and charm bellied her deep seated hatred and ruthless streak, which made her the perfect head of the Sect in India.

   
l) Jin Tseng
 

Jin Tseng was very small as so often the Chinese women are, perhaps only four feet nine inches tall, very slim with a perfect figure maintained by vigorous daily exercise and a careful diet.  She looked perhaps in her early thirties and even younger from a distance, but was in her late fifties.  She was reserved and very polite no matter what the circumstances.  She was the daughter of a Chinese government official who was still alive and in the inner circle of the ruling body of the country and communist party.  Jin (meaning gold or money) had become the capitalist in the family and closely followed her father’s advice, as he always had inside information from his position, close to all decision making in the country.  Jin had been the leader of the Sect for over ten years in China, having joined from university when she was only eighteen, nearly forty years earlier.

   
m) Liam Brown
 

Liam Brown the Australasia Sect leader was a typical Australian character or how you expected an Aussie to be, blond, bronzed, over weight with a beer belly, badly dressed in ill fitting clothes with a loud mouth and bad attitude.  Liam had carefully developed this persona to hide a perceptive mind with an iron will to succeed in business and within the Sect.  At only thirty three he was the second youngest regional Sect leader and one of the most outrageous and visible.  All his money had come from pornographic web sites and financial scams which bordered on being illegal.

   
n) Takuya Kato
 

Takuya Kato was tall for a Japanese man at six foot three inches and had played basketball in the USA at UCLA, punching well above his weight with his height being short for the sport.  Takuya was built very athletically and still exercised daily and played basketball with his grown up children and grand children even though he was now in his early sixties.  A banker, he owned one of the largest and most influential, having worked in banking all his life, since university.  He got control of the bank through artful and astute investments.  His tactics and long term, slow end game planning, were legendary.  He had only been recently appointed to the Sect leadership in Japan, but had been a member for over forty years.

   
o) Laurette van Berkel
 

Laurette van Berkel was from a strong Afrikaans family who had been wealthy for nearly a hundred years.  A very attractive woman with jet black hair and striking features with a dazzling smile, she had now started to gain weight in her late thirties and to lose that beauty that youth had in full bloom. She was the Sect leader for Africa inheriting the position upon the death of her grandfather.

q) Benjamin Nester
 

Benjamin Nester had been one of the world’s greatest theologians most of his life and worked from his beloved desk from his home in Jerusalem. He knew both his wife of thirty years Susan and his daughter Susan were Sect members and he was not surprised when David York contacted him, to help with the search for the ‘Coffin of Destiny’.

Small for a man at five foot seven inches and wiry but fit for a man of sixty he was dressed always in black. He had a kippah the slightly rounded skull cap, long beard and had straggly wispy white and black hair. He looked like what he was, a religious scholar.

   
r) Crusader
 

Crusader was a mysterious person who served the Sect as an assassin and enforcer working for the Sect leader.

   

CULT MEMBERS

a) Giovanni Bellini
 

Giovanni Bellini was exactly how you expected him to look.  He was tall at six feet, three inches, broad shouldered and muscular build which was extenuated by his tight fitting clothes.  He always wore Italian made silk suits and shirts fashioned on the latest designer.  He liked the designer Jane Barnes an American from Maryland because she obsessed over the detail; buttons, cuffs, pockets, collars, the thread used for sewing were all important to Jane.  But Gino in spite of his wealth would not pay designer prices and bought from a small tailor in Rome who copied her designs exactly for Gino to wear.  His shoes were less fashionable and although expensive were built more for combat rather than fashion having steel heel and tips to hurt an opponent in a fight rather than impress them with their design.

Gino did wear casual clothes occasionally but usually wore a suit to everywhere he went.    His golden sun tan and stylish short jet black hair was more suited to a man in his twenties but Gino could carry it off because his aggressive and assured posture.

At thirty three, Gino was the Head of the Cult and the head of the Castellano family business a position he inherits secretly from his gangster father, Tony Castellano.

A bachelor Gino had never married and liked sex with both men and women but preferred not to have long terms relationships.

Aggressive and cunning in all his dealing he pits his wits against David York for the ‘Coffin of Destiny’.
   
b) Cardinal Castellano
 

Cardinal Castellano was one of the Pope’s most trusted aids, being a member of the Pontifical Commission for the Vatican City State, who draft the legislation for the Pontiff and have executive powers. Now in his late sixties he was slow to move his heavy frame, but this belied a quick brain greedy for position and power.

One of the Cardinals key roles was to select the Cult leader and he persuades the Pope to appoint his nephew Giovanni Bellini.

   
c) Arnold Worth
 

Arnold worth was small in stature at five foot six and fat and overweight with a large paunch and chubby face and hands. His body was stuffed into an ill fitting suit bought from a retail chain, probably on discount which accounted for its lack of any remediable feature. Bad cut, bad colour, bad cloth, bad manufacture. Arnold Worth, Arnie to his friends and ‘fat boy’ to people who did not like him, had no attractive physical features, stuttered, often smelled as he sweated nervously in the presence of everybody, but did have one talent. He was a financial genius. He could make billions appear and disappear, in any set of books and deceive even the sharpest of financial auditors. Arnie was to perpetuate massive financial fraud of behalf of the Castellano family using the Vatican funds as seed capital.

   
d) Pope John
 

Tall and slim with pale skin and a pious appearance, which makes all people he speaks to feel humble. Softly spoken and always gentle he hides a razor sharp mind and cutting wit behind his courtesy and humility.

   
e) Raymond Mason
 

Raymond was an assassin for MI6 (Military Intelligence 6), he had spent a period seconded to the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) for two years and was based in New York. Tall and muscular he was very capable of killing a man with his bare hands being seventh dan karate champion and a crack shot, having represented Great Britain at the  Olympic Games in the pistol shooting. Highly decorated and admired he was on the fast track one day to lead MI6 when his operative days were over.
Raymond Mason had prepared all his life for the calling from the Catholic Church to be its protector. Unmarried he was celibate and had been so for over sixteen years. He found any human contact contaminated his mind and at the age of twenty stopped all human sexual activity. As well as being martial arts expert, he studied yoga and meditation extensively to train his mind in abstinence and he no longer had sexual desires for any sex.

Raymond was a Cult member and rival to Gino Bellini for its leadership.
