Real World information


Tom Judge is a fallen priest and the host of the Rapture. After discovering the Rapture, he met Tilly Grimes, the great-granddaughter of Horace Grimes, blessed with the same quasi-supernatural math abilities. The Rapture transported Tom to hell, where he came into contact with the doomed Jackie Estacado, host of the Darkness. The Rapture brought hope to Estacado, freeing him and returning him to the earthly plane.

Biography Edit

Early Life Edit

Tom was once a well revered and faithful Catholic priest. However, one day a man came to Tom and asked him what he should do if someone offends him. Tom answered for the man to simply 'look into your heart and know what to do'. The man went home and killed his wife, stabbing her 97 times and then he fried himself and his two children in a bath tub. Tom blamed himself for the man's actions and turned to liquor and women in an attempt to drown his guilt.

Universe Edit

On the night of his birthday, Tom is relaxing with some booze and two prostitutes. Having trouble getting any sleep, Tom accidentally finds the Rapture hidden behind a loose brick. He takes it and begins to hear it whisper within him. Suddenly a woman bursts through the door and shoots one of the prostitutes, who turns out to be a demon. The woman, named Tilly Grimes, instructs Tom to wear the artifact around his neck. He does so and transforms into a brimstone form and slaughters the demons. He loses consciousness soon afterwards.

Artifacts Edit

After the destruction of the previous universe and the creation of another, Tom was reborn. Like his previous self, he was once a priest who had since lost his faith. However, he never discovered the Rapture and instead became an investigator for the FBI. At some point in his life, a woman carved a Rapture-shaped scar on his whole torso.

Personality Edit

Tom is described as the "rock-bottom" archetype; unshaven, alcoholic, and having lost his faith in God.

Tom in his Rapture form

Powers Edit

  • Rapture-Empowered Physiology: The Rapture bestows upon Tom vast power, including the ability to transform himself into a brutish brimstone warrior.
    • Rapture Form: Tom can transform into a powerful brimstone warrior.
      • Super Strength: Tom can summon supernatural physical strength to overpower and kill lower-level demons with ease by stabbing a hole through their bodies with his hand. Tom, while in his Rapture form, is able to challenge mid-level and possibly higher-level demons. Humans are no threat to him in terms of bodily power while he is empowered by the Rapture.
      • Pyre Manifestation: Tom is radiant with craters of fire while in his brimstone form.
      • Limited Invulnerability: Tom's Rapture form makes his bodily tissue as strong as brimstone. This makes him invulnerable to conventional injury from things such as gunfire, blades, and intense physical trauma. He uses this ability to survive the demon-infested and hazardous environment of Hell. He is unaffected by extreme heat, even while in human form.
  • Rapture-Empowered Metaphysiology: The Rapture empowers Tom's soul with power and authority thought once to be possessed only by God.
    • Absolution Granting: Tom can purify condemned souls of their sins and free them.
    • Demon Summoning: Tom can summon demons.
    • Clairvoyance: By looking through the Rapture Tom can see things that are imperceptible to humans. He can see demons in their true forms and the gates of Hell.

Abilities Edit

  • Sensory Synchronization: By getting close to a corpse, Tom can see and hear glimpses of what said corpse saw and heard before death. He then is seen touching The Rapture and seeing the previous universe and learning all about it as well as the rest of the Thirteen Artifacts. This ability is his alone and seems to be independent of the Rapture.
  • Exorcism: As a former priest Tom has the knowledge to perform an exorcism on a demonically possessed person.
