It’s a funny thing. Everyone seems to think that the conflict between Heaven and Hell is about winning the war – but it’s not. It’s about perpetuating it. So long as the war continues, the children of heaven will continue to have a role in shaping the will and fate of mankind; the very thing that Lucifer and Baal argued for at the outset of all this madness.
Bound by their own warped perceptions, many of the other Princes have pushed for a “conclusion” to the war. That is not the point. The point is to prolong Lucifer’s victory. That is why Parek serves.
That’s also why he has no problems grabbing a pint down at the pub with his opposite numbers. Sure, he’ll rip their wings off on the field of battle, but for the most part they’re old friend. Besides, if they were the type to hold grudges they’d probably be right at his side, fighting for down below.
And if he occasionally “lets slip” that Vapula has some new super weapon or that Nybbas is developing a whole new interactive type of media… well it’s not like Baal’s going to punish him. The War can only continue so long as neither side has a definitive advantage.
