Mankind is a war-zone. Billions of souls stumble through their lives unaware of the true nature of existence. The typical human has a very limited view of reality, which doesn't venture much further than their five senses, their stinted emotions, limited intelligence and the petty trivia of their day to day lives. A few, less fortunate, individuals catch glimpses of the truth around them and it drives them into madness.
For the human reality is only one of many, and the human soul has become quite the commodity. Daemons and beasts thrive amongst the inhabitants of earth. They corrupt the souls of those around them in order to feed their own hunger, out of pure greed and power lust. Every soul is vitally important in tipping the balance in the battle between the Heavens and the Hells.
Since the birth of the first man the earth has become another battleground in the eternal war. Countless realities have been ravaged and succumbed to the furies of the war. Mankind's souls have proven to be especially powerful, one of Creation's finest achievements. The forces of the Heavens know that the loss of humanity will cost them everything, and so they protect mankind with everything they can.
Mr Murder is a Daemon, whom fights for the Heavens. He is quite a dirty little secret, as he is just as dangerous as any other hell-spawn. His true name is Gibreel, although he is only ever referred to as Mr Murder on account of his tactics. Mr Murder hunts and destroys other Daemons, and relishes his job with gusto. He devours the souls of the Daemons he destroys, and those of the evil, corrupt people he kills. He is not allowed to devour the souls of the innocent, and instead sends them to the Heavens.
Millennia of wandering every plane of existence has driven Gibreel quite mad, and his twisted sense of humour mirrors that of his deranged soul. Not many Daemons wish acceptance in the Heavens.
Mr Murder can slip in and out of any reality, or time period, he wishes whenever he wants to, which allows him to track Devils to anywhere. His reality is very different than that of humanity. He can make his presence known to humans, or disappear completely from their view at will. However, like the other Daemons and Angels, he cannot hide from other sacred beings.
The abilities he can utilize in his fighting are limited by the technology of the time he is in. He must remain subtle when surrounded by recording equipment for example, as whilst he can wipe his presence from the minds of those around him, removing himself from cctv is another matter entirely.
Gibreel can control the minds of weaker beings, such as humans. He uses them to do his bidding, however he will only use evil people to commit evil deeds unless there is no other option. Having an evil man murder another is an easy way for him to get his job done without revealing himself. However, when it comes to fighting Daemons, Mr Murder must get down and dirty himself.
He is an extremely powerful fighter, and can regenerate from almost complete destruction over time, however even he could be killed if in a truly weakened state. In order to fuel his regeneration, he burns through the souls he has consumed from other Daemons and evil men. He can also utilize the souls he has consumed to wreak fire and brimstone style carnage on his foes if it is absolutely necessary, however this also can leave him greatly weakened if he uses it too much.
He may be a hero, but he does not suffer fools gladly. The little old lady waiting for her cat to be returned safely from a tree may well find herself hanging from it, if she catches Gibreel on a bad day. To try and counter his madness, a small Angelic guide was sent to help him, however the pair get on like a house on fire... with the occupants locked inside.
