Deadlands Reloaded: The Weird West
Reverend Ezekiah Grimme
Leader of the Church of Lost Angels
The earliest records of Ezekiah Grimme are of his life as a preacher who lived in the town of Los Angeles before the Great Quake. In the wake of that terrible disaster Grimme and some of his congregation survived. Grimme lead his flock to the mainland. Caring for them in the aftermath of such destruction proved more difficult then surviving the quake itself. Supplies of fresh water and food were scarce and there was little to shelter the impoverished refugees from the harshness of the elements.
Since that time, Grimme lead his band of followers to what is the current the location of the City of Lost Angels, a place he chose based on dreams he claims were sent to him none other that an Angel of God. Grimme quickly organized his followers into the Church of Lost Angels with the good Reverend becoming the most influential figure in the City of Lost Angels and defacto ruler of the city in all but name.
