Saint of Killers
The Saint of Killers is the Patron Saint of Murderers and Assassination. He was originally a soldier serving in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War; both respected and feared for being absolutely merciless on the battlefield, his bloodlust verging on that of aberserker frenzy.
After the war, he makes his living in the American West by collecting Native scalps and bounty hunting, until rescuing a young woman. She manages to break through to his gentler side, and the two fall in love and have a daughter.
When his wife and child fall ill, he attempts to fetchmedicine for them, but is delayed by a gang of outlaws, which results in his family's death. He subsequentlyslaughters much of the gang, kills an innocent hostage, but runs out of bullets before killing the leader, which leads to his death after being impaled in the chest with a shovel.
Death takes him, and, because of the innocent life he took, he is consigned to perdition. His own hatred causes Hell to literally freeze over (much to the Devil's wrath), which causes the Angel of Death to offer him to return to Earth under the condition that he takes up his role of collecting the souls of those who die by violence.
Melting the Angel of Death's sword in Hell's last burning fire, the Devil forges two Walker Colt revolvers that willkill anything, never miss their target, never leave his possession, and never run out of bullets.
The now resigned Angel of Death dubs the man "The Saint of Killers". The Saint returns to Earth after killing the Devil for insulting him, leaving the fate of Hell unknown.
He kills the rest of the bandits and purges the town ofRatwater simply because of his nature, and rests at a tomb on Boot Hill while his spirit gathers souls that die by violence.
He is awakened once Genesis merges with Custer, and begins to pursue him. He eventually learns that he has no one commanding him, God having left Heaven, though he continues to hunt Custer because he was scorned.
He spares Custer after he learns that God arranged for his family to die in order to set him on the path towards becoming the Saint, and now seeks to kill God.
The two finally join forces, and after Custer lets himself be killed to release Genesis, God returns to Heaven, where the Saint has slaughtered all of the angels. DespiteGod's attempts to intimidate the Saint with His wrath and then offering to restore his family to life, the Saint guns Him down, ending His tyranny.
With no one left to kill anymore, the Saint sits upon God's Throne and returns to sleep as the world is bathed in peace.
The Saint of Killers is impervious to harm - being hit with a nuclear missile caused no damage to him or his clothes, apart from the comment "Not enough gun". He can easily knock away tanks with a simple kick and he can be hit by a speeding truck without flinching.
His can draw his guns supernaturally quickly, and always hits his mark, even piercing tank armor to reach the intended target. The weapons always inflict fatal injuries regardless of the circumstance or nature of the victim (including angels and demons) - even God and the Devilare not immune to the bullets, as the Saint has killed them both (the only being ever to have survived being shot by the Saint was Cassidy, but Garth Ennis later admitted that he was still working out the character of the Saint at that point and was a technical mistake).
Anyone holding one of the guns can see the spirits of the many people that the Saint has personally killed.
