Father Sean O'Kelly is a Jesuit priest and former soldier now teaching at a Jesuit school.

Fr. O'Kelly sees Fr. Gaétan Signoret as a protégé for whom he hopes the best. Gaétan impressed O'Kelly with his devotion to the church (a Clergy career roll) and his orderly lifestyle. 

Although O'Kelly has put aside his former life as a soldier and has taken a vow never to kill again, he agreed to hone Gaétan's skill with the sword and eventually taught him the Final Secret of the Spanish sstyle – The Unmoving Wall of Steel
