As the city’s most infamous serial killer, Seamus has something of a reputation to keep up in Third Edition. When the notorious Red Chapel Killer Seamus slips into the shadowy streets of Malifaux, he seeks to pick off his targets one at a time, boasting some of the highest damage potentials in the game. His prowess on the battlefield is only heightened when he is targeting those already enamored with the scarlet temptresses of the Redchapel Crew.
Malifaux is home to monsters of all shapes and sizes. Neverborn of ancient power, with alien minds and malevolent purpose. Arcanist terrorists who bend the rules of reality. Veteran soldiers leading armies of mercenary soldiers. But on the bounty boards and wanted posters of Malifaux City, one smiling face stands out.
His name is Seamus, but the papers have referenced him with a list of names ranging from the Red Chapel Killer to the Star Slasher. He’s the most notorious serial killer in human history. And Malifaux is his hunting ground.
No one knows how many people Seamus has killed over the years. This is, in part, due to Seamus raising his victims to become his “Belles,” but also due to the sheer number of people that he’s killed and in the many ways in which he kills. When people speak of Resurrectionism, Seamus is the man their mind’s eye conjures: a cackling lone psychopath murdering and reanimating victims in the night, with no true goal other than to spread death and misery in his wake.
Seamus’ crimes are many. No one is sure when his killing spree began, but he first came to the Guild’s attention when he single-handedly murdered every girl in Sybelle’s Saloon, taking every last one for his own entourage. Basking in the limelight, he happily claimed responsibility for the massacre, and soon his twisted smile was on the front page of every newspaper.
Never one to sit on his laurels, he became more brazen, murdering respected journalist Molly Squiddpidge and then crashing her funeral to steal her body, raising it as his favorite Belle. Hungering for death on a massive scale, he sought out the ruins of Kythera in the Bayou and almost succeeded in activating it, which would have unleashed the Grave Spirit on Malifaux and doomed all life, had it not been for Ramos and his Leviathan’s unceremonious interruption.
After unwinding with a murder-spree across the alleyways of the city, Seamus was finally brought down and left for dead. For her own reasons, Molly used the Gorgon’s Tear, a fist-sized green Soulstone with a unique energy, to resurrect the madman. Since his resurrection, Seamus’ powers have grown, and with it, his thirst for slaughter. Fittingly, he was one of the three Resurrectionists who attacked the Guild Enclave, disrupting the ritual of Bran’s Cauldron that would have expelled the last traces of the Grave Spirit from Malifaux.
These days, Seamus is back to being Malifaux’s most wanted man again, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
