Biography Edit

Jeremiah Winslow Sullivan was born on Grayson in the middle of the 19th Century PD. He became a priest and had risen to Second Elder of the Sacristy in the early 1900s PD. After Reverend Julius Hanks was killed in a terrorist attack in 1907 PD, Sullivan became the new First Elder.[1] In this position, he automatically held a seat in the Conclave of Steadholders. (HH7)

Althought Sullivan was distressed that he was unable to forgive Edward Martin for the murder of Reverend Hanks, he was able to assist in persuading Martin to voluntarily make a full confession of his sins, thus revealing William Fitzclarence, Steadholder Burdette's involvement in the sabotage of the Winston Mueller Middle School's crystoplast dome during construction as well as his responsibility for the attempted assassination of Honor Harrington. (HH5)

Deacon Sanderson served as his personal assistant. (HH7)

Dr. Allison Chou Harrington first shared her discovery about the early genetic engineering of Graysons settlers, and the consequent high stillbirth rate of male children, with him before informing anyone else. (HH8)

In 1920 PD, he supervised the state funeral of Howard Clinkscales; he was also instrumental in the maneuvering which resulted in the marriage of Earl White Haven and Admiral Harrington. (HH11)

He was also the first Elder of the Church of Humanity Unchained to travel off Grayson[2] when he went on a state visit to the Star Kingdom of Manticore in 1921 PD. (HH11)
