He is a smoker, and habitually bites his fingernails when he is not able to have a cigarette – leaving them torn and misshappen. His coat covers the holster of his side-arm, and is used to try and conceal Seamus’ load-out weapon. As he is a smoker he carries a small brass tobacco tin that he acquired post-humorously from his father. His back is covered in scars from lashings. A once-religious man, he carries a rosary and wears a wooden cross around his neck.

What was the character’s family?
Seamus never knew his father. His mother was supposedly widowed after a vampire attacked Seamus’ parents in what would have been Cashell, Co. Tipperary. Mother escaped to Tír Tainrgire, but gave birth on the border of the UCAS after a bio-hazard occurred at the planned hospital. En-route to the back-up hospital, a vampire driver hit his mothers car, resulting in him being unable to have his birth registered. His Mother was later attacked by a third vampire, and this time she turned to a Banshee.
