Father Pascal Talon was a Catholic priest in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec, Canada during the Great War. An opportunist and a nationalist as well as a man of the cloth, Talon began supporting the Americans as soon as they overran his town, assisting U.S. Army Major Jedediah Quigley with the pacification of Rivière-du-Loup and its surrounding farmland by delivering pro-American sermons to his congregation. He was made Bishop in 1916 when his church in Riviere-du-Loup became the seat of a new diocese created by the Church. This coincided with the establishment of the Republic of Quebec.
In 1924, Bishop Pascal found himself at the center of a scandal when it was revealed that he had taken a mistress and had fathered twins on her. He was very abruptly defrocked and soon replaced by Father Guillaume. As a layman, he married the mother of his twins and moved his family to Quebec City to begin a new life.
