Person A is a judge of sinners and their sins, their role in a pantheon of gods. Person B is the god/spirit/being in charge of forgiveness and repentance, and the two work closely together, but the two sometimes argue over what crimes are forgivable with different forms of redemption and which aren’t. But now there is a being going around claiming to be a god able to grant complete redemption for cheap and offering it to humans, and now Person A and Person B have to track down this lying fake-god and deal with the issue. But both Person A and Person B have different views on this person’s crimes against the pantheon.
Person A is holding an event for a group of different kinds of religious figures, throwing a large feast for them, asking all of them to bless an endeavor Person A was planning on trying/a new building or place/etc. But then Person B, a stranger claiming to be the representative of a pantheon of gods no one has heard of, shows up. When Person A thinks they’re trying to pull a prank and denies them entry, Person B gets angry and promises to curse them all with the powers of their gods to punish them for their insolence. Turns out Person B was in fact a messenger of some long forgotten and very powerful gods, and now Person A is struggling to deal with (and trying to lift) the curse placed on them and all the other religious figures who got invited to the lunch. So Person A seeks out Person B, trying to figure out a way to fix their own curse and the curse placed on their many guests who also attended the feast. Since no one will attend a feast held by Person A again and therefore Person A will be unable to collect blessings from different religious figures and groups to ensure prosperity for their many endeavors (or buildings or etc.).
“Why not? What’s stopping me? God? He has no power over me, I’m an atheist.”
Karamatsu has always been able to see spirits since he was young but he couldn’t touch them while they can touch him. It was only until he was possessed by a spirit that he could touch them. The spirit is stuck into Karamatsu’s soul so he can’t get rid of it, but the priest part of him surpresses it. When other spirits hover around him or his family, he gets rid of it. They don’t know of it until later on in the future.
The priest was crucified and burned alive and the cross necklace burned into his skin. The spirit has no recollection of his past but from the branches spreading around the circle his heart was possibly taken/stolen. When Karamatsu borrows their abilities, the markings appear on his skin. No one except those who can “see” will notice the markings
