Fiona O'Clery arrives at Reverend Griswold's little office for appointment, and finds the door open. On the far side of the room, a gentleman of about fifty, wearing a black shirt with a clerical collar and a pair of scuffed blue jeans is slipping a tactical rucksack off his back to lay it on the old wooden desk. The spine of a fat old leatherbound book can be seen protruding, its spine far too worn to read. He has a touch of gray hair at the temples, a bit of a bald spot, and a few wrinkles both at the corners of his eyes and the bridge of his nose, but aside from that he looks fit and vigorous. Even his hands look young.
He looks up and notices Fiona's approach. "Agent O'Clery?" He gestures to the chair next to his desk. "Come in, sit down. Sorry to keep you."
