Ronnie "Reverend" Jenkins
55 year old prior soldier southern baptist reverend crusader
Ronald Jenkins was born in South Carolina shortly after Emancipation Proclamation came into law in his parents county. One of the first born-in-America free men of their bloodline, he has always held great pride in his family and the obstacles they overcame. He met a beautiful woman shortly after moving to Arkham. He wifed her and put a baby in her. Ronnie left for the Spanish-American war shortly after Tyrone was born, knowing his duty to protect the American way of life. Private Jenkins knew he would come back to his family.
He was wrong. It wasn’t the enemy that prevented him from coming home. It was his deeds as he rode alongside Theodore Roosevelt as the Rough Riders. It was the actions he felt necessary at the Battle of El Caney and Battle of San Juan Hill. Shortly after the bloodshed the war ended. Ronnie left with a pretty penny in his pocked and the flashing, kicking Gatling gun still in his hands mowing down hundreds of Spaniards each time he closed his eyes.
Some say Private Jenkins died in that war. He was one of few who knew the truth. He was the only one who knew HIS truth. The Lord needed him for another battle. The greatest battle, the last battle, the apocalypse.
Ronnie returned to his late-parents county and fell into solitude, studying the Holy Bible and honing his skills for the holy war. He hunted evil men and beast alike in the surrounding swamps and woods. The waiting drove him mad. He began to live two very different lives, bagging groceries and singing in his church to pass the time til The Day. The church did the man good, showing him how he can do God’s work without his rifle. He stayed with them for two whole decades, becoming their religious leader and earning him the nickname “Reverend”.
Ronnie searched the papers and recent censuses of the Arkham area looking for his beloved and his boy. After years of searching, he found Tyrone Biggins’s name in the Arkham paper. His boy took his mother’s name, initially upsetting Ronnie. Being a man of God, Ronnie knew the best thing to do for himself and his son is to reunite, show Tyrone the Lord’s promise, and prepare his son for the fateful day he will fight creatures from hell alongside his father and Jesus.
