John was born in a very wealthy family located west of Tandora. His father Marcus was a famous merchant and politician and was known to have influenced almost every incident or event that had happened in Tandora. Johns mother died sadly when giving birth to him. John was raised by the servants of the house, mainly the maids as they thought him very cute. As John grew up, he became very intelligent and interested in learning. Thus his father hired tutors from all the corners of the world to teach his son, all he wanted to know.
When reaching the age of 15, John became very interested in women. His father at first saw past this, as he knew the lad needed to learn the ways of woman, but after an rather awkward incident, where John had gotten his cousin pregnant was the last drop. This was very shameful and to protect the Smith family name, John was reluctantly sent to the school of the Clergy, Here he learned everything about faith and religion but also many a things about the occult and became somewhat of an expert in exorcism. Though this special trait led John to the road of drinking and feasting, which was not very popular in the religious sector, thus he became somewhat of an outcast, though remember the word somewhat. Some of the priests and clerics thought John was a good person to be around with and even though his traits were not so holy, they didnt mind.
