Reverend John Anderson is a devote Christian who believes everything happens for a reason. He’s a long time gambler and drinker who says that God doesn’t want us to sweat the small stuff. He has started a one-man crusade against the demons that plague Rome, WV. Armed with his faith and a belief that he is doing God’s work, he has dedicated his life to expunging evil.
Anderson was there when Kyle’s mother was possessed. Now that Kyle has returned to Rome, the Reverend attempts to recruit him to his cause. The two butt heads about how to handle the situation and Anderson’s faith is questioned repeatedly, but they end up forming a partnership to try to stop the evil taking over the town.
