Real Men Love Jesus

Hollister is an Evangelical Minister, so you can expect lots of Bible quotes and love for the Lord. If asked his religion, he will probably tell you he's Christian.

Interfaith Smoothie

Experience has taught Hollister that any one religion doesn't have all the answers. Just don't call him a Unitarian Universalist.

Sentient Cosmic Force

Call it God, call it Fate, call it the Big Man in the Sky if you want. Hollister believes in it, and that it is watching you. Like Santa Claus. Just don't call him a Gnostic. Or a Deist. He hates that.

Two Headed Coin Cruel Mercy Martial Pacifist

They say what goes around, comes around. That you can't escape Karma. For those who seek to avoid this rule, there is Hollister. Still, he's in the business of saving souls, not racking up body counts. If Fate says you live, who is he to judge?

World Traveler

He's from Texas. Joined the mission field. Saw the world. Awakened and now he wants to get off. What could be more harmless than an out-of-the-way tourist trap like Fallcoast? Right??


Acanthus and Silver Ladder. Faerie and Aether. Time and Fate. Hollister calls the whole thing the Divine Plan and gets on with it. Even when he doesn't understand it. Which is most of the time. Past life got you down? Family curse all up in your business? He can help.

Grad Student

What good are brains if you don't use them? Hollister is in grad school for a Master's of Divinity with concentrations in Anthropology, Mythology, Philosophy, Comparative Religion, History and the Occult. Fighting obscure gods and need to know what /really/ went down two thousand years ago? Ask the Humanities!


Hollister is a Thorpe, so that explains the obsessive need to be part of every service organization he can reasonably manage. In addition to his studies, Hollister is training to be a Chaplain with the ROTC, coaching an AYSO soccer team, leading the campus Young Republicans and is a founding member of the local Campus Crusade for Christ. He can also sing while playing the acoustic guitar.


Outwardly religious, well versed in ancient traditions and fiercely moralistic, Hollister moonlights as a slayer of all things dark and icky. The taxonomy of the strange is long and involved, but he finds it easier to call them all 'demons'. Afflicted by possession? Ghost in your attic? Cryptid bothering the neighbors? Acamoth got you down? Hollister will 'exorcise' it any way he knows how.
Then the Quiet Explosion by Hammock

The One Moment by OK Go
There is nothing more lovely. There's nothing more profound. Than the certainty. That all of this will end. So open your arms to me. And this will be. The one moment that matters.
Angels by The xx
Light reflects from your shadow. It is more than I thought could exist. You move through the room. Like breathing was easy. If someone believed me. They would be. As in love with you as I am.
Cinema by Samuel
I could watch you for a lifetime. You're my favorite movie. A thousand endings. You mean everything to me.
Karma Police by Radiohead
Karma police. I've given all I can. It's not enough. I've given all I can. But we're still on the payroll.
Civilization by Justice
Standing in line as we march to the drums of the east. Paralyzed and possessed by crusader's deceit. Lost to the sirens that call from the turbulent tide. Bound by the science that lives on the lips of the wise.
Youth by Matisyahu
Young man, control in your hand. Slam your fist on the table and make your demand. Take a stand. Fan a fire for the flame of the youth. Got the freedom to choose. Better make the right move.
Actin Like You Know by Mackenzie Nicole
I think you need to learn your place. Talkin' bout how I was raised. Can't taint the blood in my veins. You don't get the world I'm in. Don't know the extremes I've lived. Strange is all I have in me at the end.
Simple Song by The Shins
I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone. Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, to play like a stone. Could be there’s nothing else in our lives so critical. As this little home!

Chocolate by Snow Patrol
Goodness knows I saw it coming. Or at least I'll claim I did. But in truth I'm lost for words.

Counting Stars by One Republic
I see this life, like a swinging vine. Swing my heart across the line. And in my face is flashing signs. Seek it out and ye' shall find.
Crossfire by Stephen
So heaven, if you sent us down. So we can build a playground. For the sinners to play as saints. You'd be so proud of what we've made.
All We Do by Oh Wonder
All we do is hide away. All we do is chase the day. All we do is play it safe. All we do is live inside a cage. I've been upside down. I don't wanna be the right way round. Can't find paradise on the ground.
Here by Alessia Cara
Truly I ain't got no business here. But since my friends are here, I just came to kick it. But really I would rather be at home all by myself. Not in this room. With people who don't even care about my well-being.
We Are Young by Fun
The moon is on my side. I have no reason to run. So will someone come and carry me home tonight. The angels never arrived. But I can hear the choir.
