During a previous, adventure, a demon's soul became lodged in Jason, unable to leave, forcibly take control, or be exorcised. Jason likes to call him Susie, as he refuses to reveal his true name. Plus, it pisses him off. Susie is a boon of information on the occult, but rarely volunteers any of it. He may help out if their lives depend on it (if Jason dies, they both go to Hell), but usually he'd rather see Jason suffer. Susie hates Jason and wants nothing more than to escape and kill him. But for now, the battles they get into are the only outlet for his demonic bloodlust.
Susie likes to manifest himself over Jason's shoulder as an amorphous black cloud, though no one can see or hear him but Jason.
WEAPONS AND FIGHTING STYLE
A Paladin's sword is bound to his soul and cannot be taken, used, or manipulated by anyone other than it's master. If separated, they will quickly return to him. They are holy weapons and a bane to all evil creatures. The sword Jason wields with his right hand is bound to his own soul while the one in his left is bound to Susie (long story).
Jason is a conservative fighter, believing in using only the exact amount of force necessary to subdue an opponent. He is as proficient at dual wielding as he is at fighting unarmed which he will do if an opponent is also unarmed, nice guy that he is.
As a Paladin, Jason learned how to impose his will upon himself and his environment. He can move at the speed of thought, allowing him to react instantly to almost anything he sees coming. He can also remove himself from the collective conscious, rendering him invisible and inaudible to the human mind. The signature attack of The Paladin is the Eye of Heaven, a brilliant flash of holy light that nullifies demonic auras, but is harmless to anything else. Jason sometimes likes to use it to temporarily blind non-demonic opponents.
When the situation is desperate and all else has failed, Jason may opt to let Susie take control of him, adding Susie's demonic power to his own. However he rarely does so as he's afraid of what Susie might do. Susie is vicious, merciless, and difficult to reign in once loose. When in control, he can project solid appendages of himself that can be shaped into anything from weapons to wings.
