Father Gerard Henri's Home for Wayward Youth
Father Gerard Henri’s Home for Wayward Youth is a role playing villain group in City of Heroes on the Virtue server. We are a roleplay-heavy group, focusing on a group of orphaned or abandoned children in the Rogue Isles who are learning how to use their metahuman powers to improve life in the lawless Isles.
In character, Father Gerard Henri’s Home for Wayward Youth was founded in the 1960s, in memory of the 18th century Jesuit priest. The Home’s mission, as far as public records are concerned, is to serve as a vocational school for orphaned and abandoned children. These children, who have no resources or family to call their own, are taken in by the Home and taught basic life skills as well as a vocational skill to give them a chance at making decent lives for themselves once they turn 18 and age out of the system.
In reality, the headmaster of the home is former soldier Father Michael O’Connely. O’Connely came to the Rogue Isles in the name of cleaning up the rampant villainy, but found that to be an insurmountable task. Instead he has set his eye on the next generation, carefully guiding the children into becoming productive adults and not just another gang statistic. As for the metahuman children that come into his care, he’s begun teaching them how to control and use their powers to improve the lives of citizens in the Rogue Isles.
Due to the lawless nature of the Isles, these children rarely become heroes in the traditional sense. Instead they grow up to become a motley crew of rogues and vigilantes, always trying to do what is right, but bending – or breaking – any rules that may get in their way.
