Extended Biography

Lacklan was born in June 1973 to rich parents in Lafayette, Louisiana. His family owned the large plastics manufacturer, Lacklan Inc, and, as such, he grew up in the lap of luxury. As is typical of such a child, Lacklan was overly-sullen and was "never understood." However, this changed as he grew into his teen years and he latched onto a sport that he loved and respected: Professional Wrestling. Having graduated high school at 17, Lacklan left to study the sport in Japan in 1990, where his parent's fortune were able to give him the best teachers of the time: All Japan Pro Wrestling Dojo. Lacklan trained alongside some of today's best "King's Road" style wrestlers, under the guidance of wrestlers such as Misawa, Kawada, and Taue, with Misawa taking a particularly close view of him. It is during this time that he become friends and partners with Dennis Lancaster, who would later go on to participate in Pancraze and other "hybrid" wrestling companies.

Unfortunately for the budding wrestler, his parents perished when their plane crashed on the way to see him in a high-profile match in Japan. Lacklan was crushed; the only solace that he could find was in his friend, Dennis. Against the suggestions from his mentors, even against his very sensai in Misawa, Lacklan left Japan and went back to America. Once there, he took over the reigns of his father's company, though only in name, as he gave executive power to the board of directors. For himself, Lacklan, now 20, decided to go back to school and get degrees in philosophy and psychology, all within 4 years.

However, the fire to be a wrestler still burned within Lacklan. Throughout his years in college, Lacklan continued to train, sculpting his body, working on his moves. It is during this time, during one of his training sessions, that he apparently had a "vision" sent down from God: Lacklan, a unified (or Ultimate) world title in his hand. From this moment on, he believed that he was the "Savior" of professional wrestling, the next Christ and/or Messiah. He was the "Voice of God," as he believed that God had chosen him to destroy wrestling and rebuild it in his image.

Once he had his degrees in hand, Lacklan entered the world of professional wrestling at the age of 24, debuting in 1997 for Johnny Extreme Championship Wrestling.

Ring Attire In the ring he wears special made Dr. Martin boots with 13 holes. His tights are black, with a number of symbols on them, all in a brilliant white: on one leg, the image of a man with arms outstretched, like on the cross; on that same leg, the words "FINAL RITE"; on the other, on the front, Lacklan's official symbol of a cross within a sunburst; on the back, the word "INFINITY" written down the leg. He also wears black gloves and a purple elbow pad on his right arm, the arm for the Roaring Elbow.

On his back is a small list of names of those that have died in Lacklan's service. The current names are Danger, Alpha, Titus, Lancaster, and Jenna.

Outside the Ring Outside of the ring, Lacklan wears black silks, always nice clothes, with his long black coat and his crucifix. Lately, he has grown accustomed to wearing his cowl and hood as well, keeping his masked and scarred head hidden

Wrestling Style: Lacklan uses the Strong Style of Japan, utilizing stiff elbows/forearms for initial damage, and suplexes and throws for heavier damage.
