|Ambrose was a screw-up, wandering from job to job with no real plan. Then he literally fell into grave robbing.
One night, he was drunk and passing through a graveyard when he fell into an open grave.
The two guys digging up the grave were taking a smoke break. They rushed over and were going to bury him in the dead body’s place when he convinced them that he’ll be a better grave robber to them than a dead man.
They took him back to their boss and he got another shock, his new boss was a demon, the demon Zeter’ech.
He worked for the demon for nearly 5 years, realizing quite early that the end result would be his death. He avoided the various purges that the demon used to cull his followers, while making his plans to escape by killing that evil thing and studying everything he could on demons.
Along the way, he realized that the souls, as well as the bodies, of the newly dead he was robbing were feeding the demon and that he was partially responsible for it.
The standard solution was simply banishing the demon. Not ideal, since Zeter’ech had plenty of followers who’d just wait the requisite time then summon him again and then Ambrose would be hunted down and killed.
So he delved deeply into his demonology study to find a better option. And he found one — binding the demon into an object.
Unfortunately, his act, coupled with Treefrog Neck Felix’s banishing ritual, had an effect no one, least of all the demon, expected: Zeter’ech was turned into a demon-ghost, trapped on Earth, but trapped without his full demon powers.
Ambrose escaped with Treefrog Neck Felix and became his apprentice. Now he wanders the U.S. trying to make amends for his past demonic association while trying to avoid that demon.
