Jericho - Black n' Rawlings by Doomblade2712 Jericho - Black n' Rawlings by Doomblade2712
Screenshot from the game: Clive Barker's Jericho. Lt. Abigail Black (telekinetic lesbian sniper) to the left and Father Paul Rawlings (priest) on the right. Information below taken from extra unlockables in the game, both image and information is copyrighted to Codemasters.



Name: Paul Rawlings
Height: 195 cm / 6 foot 5
Weight: 88 kg / 194 lb
Age: 67 years
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Grey
Blood Group: O+
Team Position: Medic/Chaplain
Speciality: Exorcist
Background:
The oldest active member of the Jericho squad, Paul Rawlings is also the only member of the team that actually started his military career as a true chaplain. He enlisted in 1970 as a chaplain’s aid and served three tours of Vietnam before the end of the war. His experiences there caused him to question his religious and political beliefs, and after dropping out of the army he spent the next twenty years searching for meaning and direction. His travels brought him to the far corners of the Earth on missionary and relief efforts, but his experiences with indigenous tribes did more to transform him than his intended converts. He found himself adopting various belief systems into his own, because as he’s fond of saying: “There’s too many Gods when it comes to watching your ass”. As such, Rawlings became something of a universal cleric, the ultimate chaplain. Although his request to resume active duty was at first declined by the chaplain corps, the DOW was eager to have him in their ranks due to the practical knowledge he gained in dealing with occult forces and the paranormal.
Special Abilities:
Rawlings’ power comes from his intense academic study of magic systems from around the world (especially in the areas of consecration and exorcism) and just pure faith. He is a walking encyclopaedia when it comes to dealing with malevolent spirits and otherwise hostile paranormal entities. He has the ability to heal team members from a viewable distance with Ghost Heal and is also capable of summoning Vladimir’s Curse to drain the health of enemies and distribute it amongst the Jericho squad.
Combat Abilities:
Despite being a man of the cloth (or many cloths, as he would argue) Rawlings is still an experienced soldier with tours of Vietnam and Iraq under his belt. He prefers to use a pair of twin customized pistols, Faith & Destiny, augmented by his own personal luck charms and talismans.
Primary & Secondary Weapons: Two 0.357 Calibre 15-round auto pistols (FAITH & DESTINY) with modular ammo – piercing, concussive and explosive.
Personality:
Despite his grim appearance, he has a quirky sense of humour. Deadpan and unexcitable, even in the face of extreme evil – he acts like he’s seen it all. His twenty years of soul searching were filled with some unusual adventures – when he speaks of his experiences, we get the impression he was something of a rogue. Despite being a “man of the cloth”, he’s scrapped with the best of them and is handy in a fight. Afraid of succumbing to his human nature again. Father Rawlings has fallen to many sins, especially his early years as a chaplain, thus the past will haunt him forever. Feels particularly responsible for Sgt. Church, since he recruited her himself. Also feels terrible for the loss of Agent Muriel Green as he sent her here seeing as they needed space. He met Green in '96 and was her handler throughout Chechnya and Sudan and on the Christmas Eve of '99 in Prague at the Hotel Bohemia he and Green danced to Cole Porter tunes sung in Czech and drank themselves stupid on absinthe, according to Paul his memory gets a bit “fuzzy” after that.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

Rawlings is probably not the best character to play as in Jericho, because A) he is a ranged healer and can heal other characters by himself, B) his guns aren't always the best to use (they're just very pissy) and C) in my opinion; why, when you can heal others as any other character, would you waste time healing others at ranged distance? The healing spell DOES take more time than necessary...

I love the telekinetic lesbian sniper bit. Hilarious!

However, Lichthammer accused Rawlings of being Church(or Muriel's) pimp. I never understood why, because Church was raped by her father and Muriel was 'rescued' by Rawlings...
Never made sense.

Nice screenshot, though. :P

penso sia per il duplice motivo che: sia Rawlings pur essendo un prete cattolico non conserva il voto di castità, come dimostrato dal incontro con la donna al inizio del gioco, anche dal fatto che quella zombie nazista dominatrix lo ha accusato di essere pedofilo (comunque lo accusa anche di altre cose che non ci è dato sapere se sono vere.) e quindi nei due casi abbia delle "voglie" per billie(the ninja of the jericho).

comunque qui per me si nota la grande abilità di Baker come caratterista. tutti i personaggi di jericho sono molto più tridimensionali di molti personaggi di altri VG più famosi....

Ahh, sono capisco. Mi sente adesso poco intelligente :iconfacepalmplz:
Penso ho dimenticato il dialogo con Muriel per quanta riguarda Prague. Rawlings era ubriaco su assenzio forse con Muriel, devono avere ottenuto insieme quella notte e ... non ne ha parlato la mattina successiva. :iconawkwardplz:

Ma!! Rawlings ha parlato con Ross circa Prague, Ross ha chiesto "Pensavo che fosse un prete?", alle quale Rawlings ha detto "Sono un prete, ma io sono anche umano."

Anche la zombie e` un telepatico,noto per aver causato le madri a mangiare i loro bambini e uomini a sbudellare se stessi, forse inventato queste 'voglie'?

si che la nazi era una telepate di alto livello, però non e detto che effetivamente dica la realtà, probabilmente i jericho sono protetti in qualche modo da alcuni attachi "magici", infatti anche se la zombie era riuscita a leggere la mente di church non sapeva che billie odiava essere chiamata Wilhelmina ;nome con cui veniva chiamata dal padre...quindi non c'è veramente una certezza che Rawlings abbia "voglie" verso billie o almeno queste potrebbero essere normalisime dato che comunque il prete è comunque un uomo...comunque potrebbero essere semplici offese, infatti nè il prete che la "ninja" ne sono tanto colpiti (ecceto il nome di billie alla fine...)

Abbastanza giusto, fate un buon punto. Forse le magie diverse sono protetti le loro menti. Ma, forse la nazista non aveva conosciuto che Wilhelmina e` un male nome per Billie, dopo che ha mortato perche` di l'errore. Ma anche forse la nazista aveva conosciuto e era la pianificazione. :iconshrugplz:

Chi lo sa?

Clive Barker aveva conosciuto.
