Václav Havel, codenamed Know Faith, is a male Terran priest and AX agent who possesses the power of camouflage—an ability to blend in with the surrounding environment himself, rendering him invisible. He also has the ability to take flight, albeit briefly. A Brno-born native of the Duchy of Bohemia, Havel has been one of Cardinal Caterina Sforza's most trusted friends since at least the early 3050s AD. Though he usually remains at Sforza's side in Rome, he occasionally undertakes missions for the Ministry of Holy Affairs like the other AX agents.

His arcana in Thores' tarot cards is The Hermit.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Novels[edit | edit source]

In the novels, during the Bohemia War, he calls himself the "Unbeliever". Although he was often considered to be one of the most religious men in the AX unit, Father Havel began to doubt his faith after seeing so much suffering in the world. Some time after losing his belief in God, Father Havel joined the Vatican Neue Vatican, and became one of Alphonso d'Este's followers. He kidnaps the Pope, resulting in a conflict with his former comrades. Although Abel tries to convince him to return to the AX, he turns him down. Hearing that the Inquisition forces plan on killing all within the city, an injured Havel attempts to stop them, but is subsequently killed by Sister Paula. Before he dies, the priest admits that he had found his faith once again.
