Santa is not the jolly fat man we all know in love. In truth, Santa is actually the son of Satan. Born during the middle ages of a virgin birth, Santa is a cruel demon. On his birthday, he would commit various atrocities, when became known as the "Day of Slaying." The peasants would hold masses praying to the Lord for protection (Christ masses if you will). In 1005 AD, an archangel was sent by God to put an end to Santa's reign of terror. He challenged the demon to a curling match and after being victorious sentenced Santa to deliver presents to children and be kind for 1000 years. He hoped these acts of kindness was cause Santa to turn over a new leaf. 

They didn't...

If you're looking for my holiday cinematic unisystem goodness, Tim at The Other Side has a couple of good posts.

Krampus for Ghosts of Albion
Scaring the Dickens Out of Your Characters: Ghosts of Albion

Also don't forget about my Christmas Contest.


  1. Very cool. And thanks for the links back.
    For Ghosts of Albion I would also give him Innate Magic.

    1. No problem, I think I'll go ahead and add Innate Magic to his "sheet." Tonight I plan on finishing Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale and I believe I will stat up that version of Santa too (which is quite freaky).
