Saint Evilasius (died 311) was an executioner who tortured and executed a helpless 13-year-old girl who would later become Saint Fausta. Realizing her courage, he himself was converted to Christianity, an act punishable by death since the people of Cyzicus did not want even one of their people to convert to any religion other than their own.[1]
