- "Stay away! I'm only a mere man drowning in debt! I need to do this!"
- ―Kevin to his attackers, 1790
|Kevin Pascal de Kilmister|
27 November 1790
Early life Edit
Kevin was born as the younger brother of Louis. He was raised to become a man in wealth, and set his life-standard after this. However, he wanted the money – but in that case, his brother needed to die. So, Kevin spent much of his childhood in fighting and shooting – while his brother spent his time on hunting. He wanted to obtain his money before his brother, and over the years he had an idea of what he wanted to use them on: the citizens of France. When their father died, Kevin mourned while his brother became the next marquis of Kilmister.
Both parents of the Kilmisters were Templars, and therefore was the brothers taught in the ways of the Order. This was a conservative point of view, however, something Kevin did not supported. Kevin was inducted to the Order at the age of 26.
French Revolution Edit
At the outbreak of the French Revolution, Kevin's brother traveled to Paris to pledge his allegiance to the former Grand Master's daughter. The younger brother also came along to Paris, but for other reasons. He pledged his allegiance to a more radical faction of the Templar Order. He offered his skills to the Order, or more precisely: radical Grand Master Germain. Germain envisioned a capitalist society in which the nobility was stripped of its power, and the rising middle class would gain power. This way, the Templars would be able to exert control over the populace more subtly. Kevin insisted that he wanted to join the radical Order – much due to revenge for his arrogant family. However, this had a retrospective force on him.
When Kevin's brother was slaughtered by Templar ally Jacques Roux and his lieutenant, Kevin became the new marquis of Kilmister. As the new marquis, he spent his money on the people – as he had promised himself and Germain. However, this lead to his own downfall. In June 1790, Kevin had spilled the money his family had – everything had been spent on aiding the Order. Kevin asked Germain for help, but he turned him down. As a further lesson the naïve aristocrat, Germain stationed Kevin at the Arsenal, along with an agent of Master Templar Bourienne. Here, Kevin spent his time on bookkeeping for Bourienne and for the radical Templars.
Meanwhile, rioters had destroyed Kevin's estate. The palace was heavily mortgaged, and Kevin knew bad times awaited him. The banks got to him and began to ask for money. Kevin left the Arsenal quickly for living in the slum of Paris. The people form the banks would refuse to enter the slums, scared for their lives. However, Kevin could not escape the clutches of the Templars. After living in fear for a long time – aided by, and sometimes helping the LF – Germain traced him up and set him to rob a house in Le Marais. Kevin gladly accept, since this meant he would get the chance to get himself some money – and in this way pay back his creditors. His main task: find monsieur Bourienne's notebook. This was the only information Kevin was given by Germain.
During his hunt for this notebook, Kevin and the extremists was one day attacked by Assassins – two males and one female. Kevin, skilled with the sword and a pistol, put up a great fight. However, he was a coward. He put up a fight, but took the stairs higher and higher upwards the house. At the end, he was on the roof of the four-floor high building. The Assassins threatened Kevin to reveal his employers. Kevin refused however, and took his pistol to his head and shot himself. His body fell down the house, crushing his skull to the pavement.
