Gesu was the leading Tzimisce in Constantinople between 888 and 1204. He was the Holy Ghost in the Trinity and the spiritual leader of the Divinity Within. He met Final Death when his haven (the St. John Studius Monastery), was burned during the Fourth Crusade by Gauthier deDampiere - along with many tomes of the Library of the Forgotten.

In 689, in order to make peace between Antonius and the Dracon, Mi-ka-il (Michael the Patriarch) present them with two twin brothers, Gesu and Symeon, as students and future Progeny. They boys were only 7 years old.
Twelve years later, the Dracon receives envoy from [Tzimisce], advising him to never embrace Gesu. Dracon refuses to listen and embraces Gesu, who falls into a deep torpor. His brother waits on his side for his revival.
After two years of torpor Gesu finally wakes up. He embraces his brother Symeon. Filling Antonius with rage.
In 890, the Fifth Council takes place and Gesu and Symeon are declared leaders of the Tzimisce.
A century passes by, and Symeon takes a mortal lover, a woman named Lilian. Against the wishes of his brother, Gesu embraced her in 1196, melting her into his own chest. He has reunited the holy whole body of what he believes is a pure human.
Finally, in 1204, Gesu is destroyed through the flames of his monastery.
