Contrary to popular belief, Bavian is a fantastic poet – so good that he almost managed to usurp the whole of Lord Koroidia‘s essence supply. Unfortunately for Bavian, he did not play the patronage game as well as the demon he hoped to unseat.

When it came time for investiture, Kobal requested that Lucifer give Bavian stewardship of Bad Poetry, a Word he has been saddled with until this day. Further, Bavian is now compelled to recite or transcribe bad poetry whenever he tries to speak, sing, or write meaningfully.
