Faust, Father. Father Faust was created by the Polish author Tadeusz Micinski (Ariaman) and appeared in Xiadz Faust (1913).

Father Faust is a parish priest in a small town in the Polesie region of southeast Poland. He sees that war between Germany and Poland and Russia is imminent, and believes that there is an essential brotherhood between Poland and Russia which should draw them together in the fight against the wicked Germans. So when a likely young political prisoner is escorted into Faust’s town on Christmas Eve, Faust teaches the man everything that Faust knows about magic (which is considerable), making the man Faust’s equal and freeing him from the soldiers guarding him. The soldiers kill Faust, but he dies knowing that his new student will use his magic powers to fight against Germany.
