Brother James Brown
DOB - unknown!
Origin – unknown!
I claim and appear to be a Franciscan Friar although I stole my habit from a monk in a drunken brawl whilst on the run from the Sheriff of “somewhere” for committing unmentionable sins! I now make my living selling highly (un)authentic relics and pardons to folk gullible enough to part with their hard-earned cash. If you want to become the owner of the last breath of Christ, a tear of the Virgin Mary, or just a day off from your duty of prayer, then I am your man!
I really landed on my feet when I was engaged by the Venetian spice merchant Francisco di Spicer to protect his Wife's spiritual needs whilst he was away on his travels – him being a good Christian, he trusted the familiar habit, and fortunately (for me) didn’t think to look any further into my background! Now my old friend the Spicer is gone and his widow is remarried, I have to be a bit more careful of the new Husband, Sir Hugo, but fortunately for me, he is often away playing at war or fawning over Sir John Cornwall. If he gets wind of my escapades, my head may be in danger!
