Deadlands-A Fistful of Ghost Rock
Reverend Ezekiah Grimme
Head of the Church of Lost Angels
Reverend Ezekiah Grimme used to be a humble preacher living on a ranch in California. After the Great Quake of ‘68 tore the territory apart, Grimme gathered up as many people as he could and led them out of the Great Maze. The Reverend and his followers eventually found their way to a cliffside overlooking the Maze, where they built a huge cathedral for Grimme’s new church, and around it was built the City of Lost Angels.
Grimme is the de facto ruler of the City of Lost Angels, mainly because of his divine powers. While some claim that he has a host of angels protecting his City and that he once fought off demons trying to tear down his city. While food is extremely scarce in the Maze, the Good Reverend is able to provide a feast to his followers every Sunday after his fire and brimstone sermons. Among the people who Grimme considers instruments of the Devil include the Rail Barons. He refuses to allow the rails to come into his city, claiming it will bring sin and corruption amongst his flock.
