: Justice, Faith. Jason is a man who believes
. He is tireless in his efforts to stamp out what he sees as evil, and while he has precious little faith in himself, he still believes in his Lord's plan for him.
: Pride, Wrath. Self-rightousness and occasional outbursts of uncontrolled anger are Jason's largest failings.
: Penitent. In many ways, Jason feels responsible for the Bloodfangs and the Youngbloods, and for his own current condition.
: The sins of the father are visited on the son, they say. This is not always the case. Sometimes, the sins of the son are visited on the father.
Father Jason Kaje is a man of faith. He is a tireless worker for the cause of The Lord, and a member of the Ministry, a group of like-minded individuals who work to rid the world of demonic forces, particularly Abnormals who were created through blasphemous science or demonic pacts. There's just one problem. Jason is dead.
Jason is the father of Vincent and Deacon Kaje. He lived by the credo of "Spare the rod, spoil the child," so his sons tended to live in quiet fear of him. Deacon did, at any rate. Vincent was Jason's problem child. He was rebellious from a young age, and Jason was at a loss for how to deal with his son's vices, especially his growing facination with The Adversary's tools. Jason's punishments stopped short of abusive, but sometimes only just. But it didn't seem to stop Vincent's slide into Satanism, and finally Jason washed his hands of Vincent, disowning him and tossing him out on the streets. Such was his arrogance that he thought his son, after seeing what homelessness was like, would see the light and give up his wickedness.
When Jason next saw his son, however, it was at the head of a gang of vampires, who broke into his house. It was immediately obvious to the minister that his son had sold his soul to the Devil, and he tried to fight back. He was no match for his son, however. His wife, bless her soul, died that night. But The Vampire Prince was not willing to let his father have the luxury of a quick death. Instead, he was fed the vampire's blood, and then left for the dawn.
Jason was ready to accept his fate and let the sun take him, but whatever curse had been laid on him was not so kind. The police had been called, and he found himself rushed to Mercy General Hospital. When the sun came, it burned, but it was a slow torture, not the fast explosion he'd been half-hoping for. When the sun set and he was still alive, he knew that he had been truely damned. He was moved to a darker ward, and his body recovered. He was eventually released from the hospital, but he had no idea what to do now.
Thoughts of staking himself were tempting, but he knew that was not a way out. God abhorred suicides. He felt trapped in his half-dead state, and returned to his job, only to find the very symbols of his faith hurt to touch. But this was his punishment, he decided, for allowing his son to fall to evil. He vowed to make amends.
He joined with the Ministry, not revealing his own powers, and now lives two secret lives. One is devoted to tracking down abnormals who break God's plan by making pacts with either demons or science to gain powers. The other is his own private torment of living with the Hunger and keeping his vampiric abilities concealed from his fellows, who might not understand his predicament. He works to bring down the Bloodfangs in any way he can, but he cannot move directly against his son, as much as he'd like to...his blood bond with his creator renders him powerless to harm Vincent directly. And so he waits, and plans, and looks for those who could offer him a chance for salvation.
