Bio:

His the distant cousin to Duke Banner. His family hold little more material wealth than their good Noble name in these times, but that has not stopped John from finding a good woman to marry. He is a bit of a hothead, but he is honorable none the less.

Duke Gregory Banner the Duke of Devonshire always lusted for John’s wife, Mary. The Duke was so drunk with power, he stole his bride away from him by force. When Hollins accused Banner of this in public, Banner challenged the man to a duel to reclaim his ‘honor.’ Unfortunately for Duke Banner, Hollins drew the first blood calling the duel though each man wished to continue until one was dead. John Hollins, the better swordsman, managed to scratch Duke Banner’s arm where his hidden chainmail armor did not protect. With this armor, it was unlikely that Hollins would be able to strike a lethal blow allowing Duke Banner to claim Mary Hollins legitimately.

After the duel, John Hollins sought out Solomon Kane to aid him in rescuing his beloved wife, Mary. He discovered that Solomon Kane had died that very day. However, fortune did smile upon his as a band of Wanderers offer their help.

During the Rescue of Mary, Hollins had an opportunity to rematch Duke Banner. While clearly the better swordsman, Hollins rapier eventually broke upon Banner’s mail. Before Banner could land the killing blow, the giant Russian, Lyubov Kolasy cleft the Duke’s skull with his mighty great axe.

Afterward, Hollins attempted to free one of the Wanderers who had slain a Dunwich constable, but failed as Kreiger VonBrawn was assassinated his dungeon cell by a corrupt guard. John Hollins has stepped up to take the place as Duke of Devonshire and seeks to aid the Wanderers while in this land. He currenly employes spies and scouts to keep tabs on Captain MacBloode’s operations and hopes to repay the debt to the Wanderers by capturing or killing the dread pirate.
