Background: Jonathan “Tea” Grey, born to Kaiser and Hera Grey, grew up as a traveller, moving all across England in a caravan with his father’s clan. When Jonathan was thirteen years old, his clan were attacked by a gang of demons, though he did not know what they were at the time. Hera saved Jonathan, sacrificing herself, though Kaiser was nowhere to be seen. Jonathan fled and wandered for days, until he was eventually found by what he thought were kind strangers. The kindness was short lived once they had arrived at their destination - a laboratory, where experiments for new drugs - among other unethical things - were conducted. He was subjected to a series of terrible experiments on his mind and body. His wings were cut from his back and mechanical umbrella wings were attached to his nerves to see if his brain could control them. Due to the stress and the PTSD of what happened to his mother at the camp, he suffered many awful visions of demons - ones that no one else could see. When the lab psychologist Cillian was around, he was able to see the powerful demon Carreau - Cillian’s inner demon. Cillian denied Jonathan’s accusations and Jonathan was placed in a straitjacket and put into solitary confinement. He was kept at the lab for years, and though he tried to escape many times, the security was too tight. He tried to commit suicide, and as he was dying, he saw a vision of his mother who told him to keep fighting because something terrible was going to happen to the world, and he needed to be alive to save it.
After 5 years, at the age of 18, he grew past his usefulness at the lab and was to be killed, but with the help of some other lab patients they all finally managed to escape. Jonathan headed for London and gave himself a new name - Tea - a nod to a pleasant memory of his mother, Hera, but he was still plagued by visions and voices of demons in his head. After an encounter with a demon that no one else could see but him, he knew the laboratory had triggered something deep inside of him. He trained to become an exorcist using his curse, deciding to take revenge on the demons.
Tea now lives in London, in a flat above an old church, the only place where he can gain respite from day-to-day life, though he still suffers with terrible nightmares despite the holy artifacts and spells that surround his flat. His 20-a-day nicotine addiction does nothing to curb the side effects from the laboratory, and he has violent, almost dangerous coughing fits.
