Pietr is the result of a Vampulan corporeal experiment in genetic engineering and grafting. One of the rare successes(he survived), he was born a mundane human - with a functioning prehensile tail and leathery wings. As he grew, further experiments were conducted, giving him retractable adamantite claws on each finger and toe, as well as each elbow and knee. Trained for combat - Pietr was the adolescent prototype for a new line of Soldiers for Baal - Pietr soon displayed unwanted traits: a vulnerability to cold wrought iron, and a fear of Celestials from either side. The fear was most likely due to being a victim of Vampulan experimentation, but the vulnerability rendered him effectively worthless for War.

After Vampula granted his 6th Force, Pietr learned the Ethereal Song of Shields - to keep Shedim and the like out of his head - and the Corporeal Song of Healing, to recover after training sessions and examinations by the Vampulan Servitors who ran the operation. When he thought he was slated for disposal, he broke free and fled the lab, "killing" his creators and destroying key records in the process.

Pietr knows nothing of the War - except that there ARE Celestials, and he’s a victim of their experimentations. He knows less about the world in general, having spent his entire early life as a guinea pig in a laboratory, and all he really knows how to do is fight and fly. Since escaping, he has discovered an entirely new world - and the freedom to enjoy it - as long as he avoids most other people. He has a tatoo inside his mouth - identifying him as a genetic construct of the lab where he was born - and an implanted tracking device and life-signs transmitter between his wings. If he thinks someone is a Celestial - demon or angel - Pietr will seek to avoid them. If he is confronted by any openly Celestial beings, he will flee if possible. Barring that, Pietr will fight in self-defense, until an opportunity to escape presents itself. If the Vampulans who made him can repair their tracking/monitoring equipment, they might be able to locate him - IF he is within the 10 mile range of their receivers.

Pietr is essentially a living Vampulan artifact, with a will - however weak - of his own. His creators tried to cover-up his escape, but the Servitors of Baal who helped combat-train Pietr reported his escape to their Superior. Now, all Hell is in an uproar, seeking to recapture Pietr before some Angel or Ethereal gets hold of him. Even though Baal might not think him useful, there are other, more imaginative Princes who might - Vampula among them, since the destruction of the lab also destroyed most of the records kept on Pietr’s creation. It is possible that some Archangels and Ethereals might think Pietr useful, as well - despite his origins and appearance.

Thus far, Pietr has done no evil, harmed no mortals. He dresses in whatever clothing he has snatched from clotheslines or unattended clothing donation boxes, and eats whatever he can scrounge up - everything from pigeons and rats to left-over gourmet food scraps. He keeps his leathery wings folded when not in use, hidden under the torn back of a ragged greatcoat; and his tail is usually tucked and looped around his middle so no one can grab or step on it. He is above average intelligence for a human, but uneducated beyond the needs of his creators. Exposure to the media through store-window displayed TVs has expanded his mental horizons, broadening his vocabulary and showing him new options for his life. Despite his origins, Pietr is essentially a teenage human - and longs to be accepted as such. He wants companionship. Pietr has no concept of fiction; to him, everything is taken at face value - even everything he sees on TV. Illiterate, he still enjoys looking at the pictures in magazines and comic books. He has received basic weapons training in most weapons available to humans, with emphasis on those he can use on the wing.

Pietr might well be encountered on the streets, in a back alley, homeless shelter, or soup kitchen. He tries to hide his deformities, fearing recapture and destruction. He makes his home among the carved architectural ornamentations atop some of the older, more ornate buildings - at night, he might perch among the gargoyles, feeling a sort of kinship with them. He loves to fly, and has discovered humanity’s "blind spot": few people stop to look UP. His two favorite cartoon series are "Gargoyles" and "X-Men" - for obvious reasons.

The retractable implanted adamantite fighting claws Pietr has are not large - those on his fingers and toes are only 3" long when fully extended, and those on his elbows and knees are only 6" long at full extension. Still, they can be deadly, shearing through most other materials with ease. He has mastered controlling them, using them as though they were natural parts of himself. Pietr is slim and wiry, weighing far less than a teenage human male his age ought to - an adaptation for flight. He is dirty and unkempt, his dark copper hair hanging in uneven locks about his face, obscuring his deep blue-green eyes from time to time. His skin and wing leather is a deep golden tan beneath the dirt, giving him a slightly exotic look. Pietr can hang by his tail, but most often he uses it as an extra hand - or a rudder in flight. He is somewhat feral in nature, lacking the social graces most people learn as children, and when he speaks, it is usually broken, halting, and blunt, interspersed with commercial jungles, catch phrases, and technical jargon from his life in the laboratory. Pietr is totally lacking in physical modesty, only wearing clothing to camouflage himself and keep warm. He avoids physical contact with anything made of cold-wrought iron, as he is vulnerable to it - taking painful burning welts from the mere touch of it to his flesh.

Eventually, Pietr might turn to stealing to survive - snatching food from people’s hands on the run, stealing from the corner carts of various street vendors. Alternately, he might abandon the city, and fly out into the countryside, hunting wild animals for food. This is unlikely, as he seeks human companionship - and going it alone in the countryside beyond the suburbs isn’t likely to provide that. Either way, he will avoid places where his limited understanding indicates Celestials might be - like churches, hospitals, laboratories,.....

Pietr is the result of an Omega Society experiment in genetic engineering and grafting. One of the rare successes(he survived), he was born a mundane human - with a functioning prehensile tail and leathery wings. As he grew, further experiments were conducted, giving him retractable adamantite claws on each finger and toe, as well as each elbow and knee. Trained for combat - Pietr was the adolescent prototype for a new line of soldiers - Pietr soon displayed unwanted traits: a vulnerability to cold wrought iron, and a grasp of the concept free will.

When he thought he was slated for disposal, he broke free and fled the lab, killing his creators and destroying key records in the process.

Pietr knows nothing of the Omega Society, except he's a victim of their experimentations. He knows less about the world in general, having spent his entire early life as a guinea pig in a laboratory, and all he really knows how to do is fight and fly. Since escaping, he has discovered an entirely new world - and the freedom to enjoy it - as long as he avoids most other people. He has a tatoo inside his mouth - identifying him as a genetic construct of the lab where he was born - and an implanted tracking device and life-signs transmitter between his wings. If he thinks someone is Omega Society, Pietr will seek to avoid them. If he is confronted by any openly Omega Society members, he will flee if possible. Barring that, Pietr will fight in self-defense, until an opportunity to escape presents itself. If the surviving scientists who made him can repair their tracking/monitoring equipment, they might be able to locate him - IF he is within the 10 mile range of their receivers.

Pietr is essentially a living artifact, with a will - however weak - of his own. His creators tried to cover-up his escape, but the branch who helped combat-train Pietr reported his escape to their superior. Now, all Hell is breaking loose, with various Omega Society branches seeking to recapture Pietr before some rebel gets hold of him.

Thus far, Pietr has done no evil, harmed no one other than his creators. He dresses in whatever clothing he has snatched from clotheslines or unattended clothing donation boxes, and eats whatever he can scrounge up - everything from pigeons and rats to left-over gourmet food scraps.
