Mikaeus, Lunarch of the Church


Mikaeus is in his fifties. His eyes are alternately filled with the weight of his office and the fanatical fire of worship and zealMikaeus.jpg


Mikaeus Cecani was the highest ranking member of the Church of Avacyn, under Avacyn herself. He held the title of Lunarch, the highest rank within the church of Avacyn a human can attain. Mikaeus and his entourage of bishops lead the people of Thraben as well as preserving the faith of Avacyn in the townsfolk all across the plane of Innistrad, using it to empower the Inquisitors and Cathars who fight against the darkness and monsters.

As a member of Avacyn’s inner circle, he was there to witness the fateful day where the demon Griselbrand and Avacyn dueled, and their eventual imprisonment. Seeing the object of their faith and power sealed away, those present (including the Lunarch himself) chose to swear themselves to secrecy, lest they cause mass panic and lose what little powers brought on by the lingering faith they had.

Mikaeus would spend his days reassuring the populace that all is well and that the archangel was still among them, if not physically. This of course was a lie, for mass panic is the least of their worries. Faith still provided power, and Mikaeus believed that so long as people had faith, their weapons and powers would not falter. Whenever anyone would question the absence of Avacyn, he would issue a calming, but dodgy decree.
