Up until November 1887 Father Philip Green worked as a vicar in the village of Artington, Surrey. He had lived in the village with his wife for more than 10 years, a peaceful life in a peaceful village. 

All of that changed in November 1887, when Father Green woke up one night finding a creature hovering over his wife. He immediately rose from his bed, but was slammed out of the window by the creature. When he recovered he found himself in the attendance of the local doctor. He had a broken leg and a several deep cuts from the broken glass of the window that he was thrown out of. His wife had died of unknown causes the doctor told him and just why Green was found outside was inexplainable. 

Green however knew what he had seen, so when he was able to walk again he left Artington and set about finding out who had killed his wife. The vicarage was closed down.

Strong in his belief Father Green believed that God would help in his quest. He searched for years without being able to find his wife's killer. 

Then one day while in deep prayer in St. Mary's church in Whitechapel, London, Father Green became aware that someone was standing behind him listening. That person was Father Thomas Eustace the vicar of the church. Himself and old member of the Order of St. George he told Green about the order. Father Eustace recruited Green and told him to continue his hunting for the church and the order. Father Green was only to happy to join.
