He was sent to catholic orphanage, where he discovered his power. He saw humans true faces, like that the head priest was a vampire and some of the nuns were succubi. He was tormented by other children there, and the workers encouraged them to continue. He committed his first murder at the age of seven. Morgan Gallows came into his life, and trained Shepherd to be a government assassin. He soon split from Gallows and the government, selling his skill to the highest bidder.
