Pontius Pilate was Prefect of the Roman province of Judea and judge at the trial of Jesus. Having been plagued by visions of the death of an innocent man and recognizing that man as Jesus when he was brought before to trial the Sanhedrin, Pilate tried all he could to keep Christ from being crucified. His will was constantly overruled by the will of the multitude that wanted Jesus dead; Pilate eventually gave in, but he made sure to wash his hands of Christ's blood before the execution. He was denied entrance into Hell for his piety. Heaven turned him away as well, as it did all who were deemed enemies of Christ during his capture, trial, and crucifixion. Stranded, Pilate has gone almost entirely mad and lives as a minor ghoul lord in a quiet corner of the world.
