Origin

Ramon Reyes was seven when his father was murdered in front of him, by a local power broker. Growing up an orphan in Chihuahua, he learned wrestling and, donning the leopard mask, earned the nickname "beast priest." Eventually, he had his revenge, murdering his father's killer. But Ramon did not escape reprisal, and like a family curse, his son Juan also was orphaned while young, and also grew up on the streets of Chihuahua. Juan took up wrestling wearing his father's mask and name. But learning what his father had done, he broke the cycle, rejecting vengeance and investing his earnings in running an orphanage. When the Talons of Vengeance became aware of him, they tried to warp him, but he refused the call, fled into the mountains, and fell into a cave, where he made a pact with an old Aztec God.

Personality

An uncanny balance of aggressive warrior, gentle compassion, and flatfooted pragmatism.

Abilities

Luchador

Learning from his father before him and many masters of various arts abroad, Juan's knowledge of powerhouse wrestling and boxing techniques is encyclopedic.

Athlete

Juan learned many secrets of physical training and nutrition from his father and aunts.

Jaguar Man

Juan's natural abilities have been magnified manifold by the partial transformation the Talons of Vengeance wrought on his body, and his alliance with the Jaguar god Tepeyollotl, who aided in subverting that transformation.

Armor

Inobtanium alloys and expert craftsmanship make the spikey greaves, gauntlets, cuirass and pauldrons Beast Priest wears in the most serious battles incredibly tough.

The Door that Should Not Be Opened

"Oh no... What now? Man, what is an Eternal Prison and why do you want me to take you there?"

"Katie, we need your help."

"Yeah? What about me? What about what I need? I just want to belong, Beast Priest. Ok? And every time I...."

"Look, I understand wanting to belong."

"What do you even know about it? HOW CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE?! S'matter! Cat got your TONGUE?!"

"Well Cabra, you usually just take what you want in people's heads, but you want talk? I'll tell you a story nobody's heard. And you'll know it's true. I come from a line of orphans. My father Ramon was five when he watched the Juarez Cartel kill my grandfather. He grew up and took revenge on the panderillo who did it, so they killed him in front of me when I was seven. That's how I remember him, and I think my mother left me with him, I don't remember her.

"There was a woman who hugged me once a day, like clockwork, in the orphanage. So when I made a name and the Juarez figured I might come for revenge, they came for her first. Went to her family's home. She'd died two years earlier, and I didn't even know."

"I realized I had nobody. Know what I did about it?"

"Start saving the world, I know."

"No. This... this is all a big accident. I opened an orphanage. If you want to belong, do something about it. I could use the help at the orphanage. Or help me save the world.

"But!"

"What I'm saying, there are a lot of options besides standing here in a ruined parking garage in a ruined city in a ruined world for the rest of your life Katie. Try some of them out."

"... but meanwhile, you want me to teleport you to that stupid prison that's hovering in your mind's eye like a storm cloud. Why the hell do you want to go there anyway?" Katie's brows furrowed slightly in concentration and then a concerned look grew across her face. "Holy crap, you aren't kidding! I don't know what a Lamashtu is, but... Oh. My. God. Beast Priest? Is that... ?"

"Madre Mia."
