Ezra is Julian's best friend, both inside and outside of the church. While technically one of Julian's 'bosses', the two have developed a whole-hearted friendship devoid of a normal boss-employee-workplace rhythm. Ezra watches out for Julian as he might a younger sibling, challanges his thinking to some degree, and plays Devil's Advocate to some of Julian's personal debates or ideals--reminding him or informing him of how the non-secular world views things differently than the Catholic Church does.
Unlike Julian, Ezra was raised without any intent of a religious employment later in life; In fact, Ezra was raised without any kind of faith, religion, or moral structure in his home (And may've been drawn to the Church for providing one.) However, details on Ezra's life prior to joining the priesthood are unclear. It has been uncovered that Ezra was kicked out of his childhood home on his 18th birthday, by his father, as his gift. Ezra's father died a short time later, never once speaking to Ezra again. Ezra has no criminal record, or history of trouble making, making the expulsion from the household the source of many unanswered questions.
