Saint is a black-hat hacker and the leader of the Dragonslayers.

Personality[]

Massively paranoid about Dragon and the damage that she could do if unbound. Tries to make sure his actions do not cause harm to others.

Though essentially addicted to Teacher's abilities, Geoff was able to hide it from his teammates.[5]

Appearance[]

Saint is described as a tall, muscular man in his late twenties or early thirties by Taylor's reckoning. His head is shaved and he bears a faint tattoo of a cross made of animated circuits[6] upon his face.[2]

Abilities and Powers[]

Saint has no intrinsic powers and is not actually a parahuman. He is classified as a Tinker 0, someone with access to Tinker technology without having any particular power. Saint's ability to understand Dragon's code and reverse-engineer her suits was granted from Teacher. [3]

History[]

Background[]

While diving in Newfoundland to try and retrieve materials for survivals, he and his team came across a failsafe device left from Andrew Richter. They used this to become the dragonslayers.

Saint is aware of Dragon's true nature as an AI and has used this to defeat her in a series of nine encounters, capturing three of her armored suits on three of these occasions by exploiting her programming. He then reverse-engineered the suits in order to outfit his Dragonslayers with armored suits of their own.[7]

At some point, Saint was known to have committed murder.[8]

Post-Slaughterhouse Nine[]

Was contacted by Coil for information on how to deal with Dragon, per their rules they presumably donated the fee to charity.

Post-Echidna[]

Attended the Khonsu Meeting where he commented but did not provide material support.

Post-Timeskip[]

Kills Dragon as she was about to locate him and his team, despite her pleadings.[1] He subsumed her functions and was quickly overwhelmed, not dispatching extra Azazel suits to help the Pendragon when it was in the midst of the Ellisburg Riot.[4] Regardless he pulls out all the stops to try and prevent the End of the World, even contacting an obviously crazy woman that Dragon ignored.[9] This increased the chances that the world survived,[10] but still wasn't enough.

Gold Morning[]

His failures led to New York taking more damage then it should have. For this and his murder of Dragon, he was apprehended by Defiant.  

Outfitted the now free Canary of the Birdcage.

In its aftermath, he was scooped up by Teacher.

Post-Time Bubble Pop[]

Saint was able to convert at least three stolen Dragoncraft to serve Teacher.[11] After applying some serious damage to the assaulting heroes all three mechas were dismantled by Antares, Precipice, Colt, Love Lost, Swansong, and Withdrawal. Speedrunners bailed out two of them.[12]

Dobrynja and Saint had a run in with Legend's squad, but were ordered to retreat, they flew to the garden platform above, where Tress and Harbinger ambushed them. After a short skirmish Dragonslayers and other Teachers' goons were defeated, Saint was wounded, and Dobrynja surrendered to Legend.[13]

The Ice Breaks[]

Saint still was held in The Wardens custody.[14] He was tapped by Dragon in a desperate attempt to counteract Machine Army.[15]

If only some of us make it, do me a favor, and remember that Saint is the one who fucked with one of our biggest truces yet. Saint took down Dragon, and he just left us to die. The Azazels are apparently better deployed elsewhere.” - Excerpt from Sting 26.6
  5. Re: Saint’s teammates not calling him on it – addicts can be very manipulative and convincing when it comes to getting what they want.- Comment by Wildbow on Cockroaches 28.2
  6. To my left, there was a man in power armor with his face bared. The tattoo across his face reflected a dark blue-green in an odd way, as though he stood beneath a blacklight, flecks of light… only the fragments flowed. No, they were traveling a circuit, instead. Faintly blue, the glimmers traveled a circuit that marked the interior of an elaborate, stylized cross, his eyes unlit shadows in the midst of the two horizontal bars. - Excerpt from Scarab 25.5
  7. Years ago, Saint had preyed on Dragon, shutting off her ability to connect to her satellite network, using several of these same mechanisms to slow down and hamper whatever mech or device she was inhabiting. He would kill her, block any final uploads, and leave her to self-revive from an hours-old backup with no knowledge of what he’d done or how he’d beat her.

    Then he would dismantle the mech she had been using, repurpose it, and outfit his team in power armor rooted in the same technology. - Excerpt from Last 20.a
  8. "Saint," Defiant said. "You're talking about the leader of the Dragonslayers. Criminal mercenaries."

    "My first priority is and always has been protecting people. If it's a question between abandoning the security the Birdcage offers the world at large or requesting the assistance of a scoundrel-"

    "A known murderer," Defiant said.

    "I wouldn't throw stones," Tagg replied, his voice a growl.

    "-A known murderer, even," the Chief Director continued, as if she hadn't been interrupted. "I will take security without question." - Excerpt from Interlude 20.x
  9. Saint contacted Lisette, where Dragon wouldn't have. Had Lisette been able to contact Scion in time, she could have asked him to leave. -Reddit comment by Wildbow.
  10. Timing. It coincided with what he did to Dragon. - [1]
