As far back as he could remember, James Sharp was a cannibal. Forced to suppress his cravings, Sharp became a simple country preacher like his father before him. Despite preaching about the Christian God, Styge secretly worshiped a darker god that allowed him to feed his cannibalistic nature. After becoming a somewhat crazed evangelist, Sharp met Centurious, whom Sharp believed was an emissary from his dark god. Serving Centurious, Sharp was given superhuman powers and remade into the sin-absorbing Reverend Styge by Centurious.
