Saint is a black-hat hacker and the leader of the Dragonslayers.


Massively paranoid about Dragon and the damage that it could do if unbound. Tries to make sure his actions do not cause harm to others.

Though essentially addicted to Teacher's abilities Geoff was able to hide it from his teammates.[4]


Saint is described as tall, muscular man in his late twenties or early thirties by Taylor's reckoning. His head is shaved and he bears a faint tattoo of a cross made of animated circuits[5] upon his face.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Saint has no intrinsic powers and is therefore, technically, not a parahuman. Saint is a Tinker 0 - that is, he is someone with access to Tinker technology without having any particular power. Saint's powers - his ability to understand Dragon's code and reverse-engineer her suits - was granted purely from Teacher. [3]



While diving in Newfoundland to try and retrieve materials for survivals.

He and his team came across a failsafe device left from Andrew Richter. They used this to become the dragonslayers.

Story StartEdit

Saint is aware of Dragon's true nature as an AI and has used this to defeat her in a series of nine encounters, capturing three of her armored suits on three of these occasions by exploiting her programming. He then reverse engineers the suits in order to outfit his Dragonslayers with armored suits of their own.

At some point Saint was known to have committed murder.[6]


Post-Slaughterhouse NineEdit


Was contacted by Coil for information on how to deal with Dragon.


Kills Dragon[1]

Gold MorningEdit

Outfitted the now free Canary of the Birdcage.

In it's aftermath he was subsumed by Teacher.

Trivia Edit

  • According to Narwhal, Saint is the only Tinker-zero on record - that is, someone with no actual powers but with access to Tinker technology.[2]

  5. To my left, there was a man in power armor with his face bared. The tattoo across his face reflected a dark blue-green in an odd way, as though he stood beneath a blacklight, flecks of light… only the fragments flowed. No, they were traveling a circuit, instead. Faintly blue, the glimmers traveled a circuit that marked the interior of an elaborate, stylized cross, his eyes unlit shadows in the midst of the two horizontal bars. - Excerpt from Scarab 25.5
  6. "Saint," Defiant said. "You're talking about the leader of the Dragonslayers. Criminal mercenaries."

    "My first priority is and always has been protecting people. If it's a question between abandoning the security the Birdcage offers the world at large or requesting the assistance of a scoundrel-"

    "A known murderer," Defiant said.

    "I wouldn't throw stones," Tagg replied, his voice a growl.

    "-A known murderer, even," the Chief Director continued, as if she hadn't been interrupted. "I will take security without question." - Excerpt from Interlude 20 (Donation Bonus 1)
