Few people have ever heard the name John Bishop, except for financiers, bankers, and others connected to large money assets. Bishop is a financial counselor to megachurches, guiding them and their money through a complicated network of investments and foundations to better achieve their mission in the world.

In reality he's a former old-time Pentecostal minister from Appalachia. As a kid he never had enough to eat or even indoor plumbing, but he saw the tentpole revival ministers always got to drive cars and have nice homes and countless mistresses. He got in on some of that action, becoming one of the first radio televangelists in the Great Depression. The Daeva Embraced him at the height of his fame — some say to gain his skills for themselves, some say to rid themselves of a competitor.

He runs megachurches. The fresh-faced pastors who stand up in front of tens of thousands of people, promising them that God wants them to be wealthy and is waiting to rain riches down on them if they'll just prove their faith at the collection plate?

Yeah. The Prosperity Gospel is his invention. You're welcome.

Sure, God needs the money. And He can have it as soon as John Bishop is finished with it.




That Movie


In the mid-1980s, a Hollywood producer fell under the sway of one of John Bishop's cults and actually met the mysterious financier. Bishop made a big enough impression that he was used without attribution as the visual model for the bad guy in an action movie.

Don't mention the movie to John Bishop. He gets ... unamused.




The Daeva are all about lust. John Bishop is a Daeva in full, completely committed to his lusts: not a lust for flesh, but a lust for more.

More what?

Well, whaddya got?




Although his star has fallen slightly since the recent unpleasantness, John was able to stab exactly the right people in the back to emerge unscathed and with his reputation intact.

A bloodthirsty and ruthless individual who understands power almost as well as I do. We are either reliable enemies or unreliable allies, I know not which.
