The Archangel’s 1st Proctor [The Holy Treasure] tells the story of a noble Varangian merchant, who, after having been asked by Emperor Flavius Heraclius to join him at the Battle of Nineveh, is subsequently chosen by the Archangel Rufael, to bear the many souls of Holy Angels, who, on the conclusion of a battle between themselves and the Fallen Angels, as a result of their unmitigated slaughter of their Fallen brethren, feeling too unworthy to return to Heaven, confused, were in the process of Falling to Hell themselves. Duke Bolli Vekel Rendar, 1St Proctor of the Archangel Rufael; as Pluto de la Suryan, founded, in the eighth century, with St. Augustine de Hippo, the secretive Vekel Augustine Council. Pluto has to acquire souls (in the thousands) in order to buy back 26 Angelic, personal guards, who were kidnapped by the Fallen Archangel Lucifer, in an attempt to induce the Duke to barter for the release of his family, also held by Lucifer. The Devil, in agreement with the Vekel Augustine Council, assigns a Simser, a consumer of bodies, to assist with acquiring the ransom, souls. One of the many interests of the Vekel Augustine Council is the Holy Treasure, a mass of religious and magic artefacts, codices, scrolls, sceptres, et cetera. The Holy Treasure was divided into Troves nearly two thousand years ago. One particular Trove, the Bonaventure Trove, was entrusted to the Friar, Father Bonaventure, in Italy, in 1646. The Trove was taken to America in the 1600’s by Father Bonaventure’s Brotherhood; the St. Ignatius Brotherhood. The Present day St. Ignatius Brotherhood is based in Los Lobos, California. The Bonaventure Trove is housed in the Friary’s underground passageways and tunnels. Over the years some of the Brothers have fallen victim to the seduction of the Holy Treasure, wherein madness has been experienced, and an exorcism has been performed. In addition to a number of Holy Treasure items being stolen, and ending up being sold on e-bay, and the outright horror the ensues due to this theft, the Brotherhood discovered that Portus L’Fane, Tiberius Cardinal Alti’s senior aide, is searching for their Trove of Holy Treasure, to acquire it for his own, insidious, ends. Father Aloysius, the head of the St. Ignatius Friary, sends word to the Vekel Augustine Council. Pluto returns to the Friary with some of his people. They fend off Portus L’Fane’s attacks. Pluto deals with the possibility of a betrayer in the Council. He safely relocates the Holy Treasure and recovers the stolen items, amassing a few ‘ransom’ souls on the way. Unfortunately though, a small amount of Holy Treasure finds its way into the possession of one of Lucifer’s Fallen.
