At the time of Malphas‘ fall, Shapinah was his senior Elohim. Rather than follow her boss into hell, the well endowed angel fought him, and what remained of her afterwords took the Malakim vows. Much like Malphas, Shapinah’s skill has always had a knack for shaping how things break (stone in particular, but steel, bone, and hearts work just as well). However, unlike her former boss, she has always favored clean breaks. Continue reading
Ha Urim has walked the world of man for roughly 2200 years when a song from heaven was called down in the wake of battle to light and bless a temple while the men who worshiped there went about the business of re-dedicating the site and replenishing their holy oil in the wake of a willful desecration.
While Ha Urim is, by nature, a miracle – she is also pragmatic and prone to rationing, reclaiming, and reusing what is already at hand rather than calling upon her power from heaven or creating something from scratch. Continue reading
Nefelibata tends to develop a reputation for distracted eccentricity wherever me goes: fighting dragons in the middle of downtown and reading books that no one else can see. As a result of an injury suffered during the first war, mer Corporeal and Ethereal forms are linked.
This has the advantage of allowing Nefelibata to remain awake in the corporeal realm while traveling through dreamscapes and the ethereal realm, but the disadvantage of requiring mim to perform the same action in each location (with sometimes disastrous results) Continue reading
“Beauty is only skin deep, that’s what makes it beautiful.”
Druxy is a spook and a fixer. Although she has her fingers on the pulse of whatever city she’s in, she is rarely seen dirtying her own hands. Continue reading
Emanuel Boodelay is likely to show up as a well-heeled background character, though he does not see himself that way. Unlike most Lilim, Boodler prefers to present as male, he finds the additional privilege fits his outlook and lifestyle well. Art patron, philanthropist, business owner, man about town, Boodler likes to be involved with the life of his city; especially when there’s and advantage to be had.
Today’s post was originally going to be about the Demon Sphallolalia – a word which means playful flirtation that goes nowhere and which comes from the words for stumbling speech. When I was all but done the computer crashed and the backup was corrupted. I considered writing the post again, but I couldn’t really remember my original motivation.
Carinthia belongs to one of Yves cleaning crews. She is pleasant and professional, genuinely likes the party (if they are angelic), but gets a little exasperated at how little effort they put into damage control. While acting in this official capacity, her job is to excise those memories which might compromise free will (in other words, anything that definitively proves the existence of heaven, hell, or their celestial denizens). Continue reading
Abu Al’Murtad has a remarkably even temperament for one of the Habbalah. Slurs run right off his back, especially ones likening him to either an angel or a devil. After all, he is both, and he sees little reason to be upset by the truth.
No, Abu Al’Murtad reserves his punishments for the Almighty itself. It is for this reason that he names himself Apostate, though he makes it a point to follow all the tenants of Islam save for the love of god. Abu Al’Murtad believes that it was God’s will that the demon punish mankind, and this is precisely why he chooses not to. Instead the fallen angel heals them, restoring hunger where it had been lost to illness or abuse. Continue reading
Neither Angel nor Demon knows quite what to make of Nyarlathotep. The malicious trickster god claims to be the agent of a pantheon of unfathomable deities that could rival the might of heaven and hell combined – and yet, as far as the agents of heaven can tell, it is the very actions of Nyarlathotep that create the gods and monsters it claims to serve.
Regardless of the being’s origin and allies, it’s power is clearly equal to that of any Superior. At the same time, it tends to prefer working through one of its thousands of avatars. Should you wish to set up Nyarlathotep as an antagonist, I would suggest starting with a fairly “mundane” aspect to begin with. Of course, each time Nyarlathotep is “killed” a new, more horrible form will emerge from its corpse until it is forced to reveal itself as a Superior. Continue reading
Juno is a both a cat and an otaku. Whenever she’s not leading her band of “Magical Soldiers” into battle against the “evil forces that threaten to invade Earth,” she can be found lounging around on one of their sofas watching anime re-runs.
Contrary to popular opinion, Juno really is fond of her Servants – she’s just more fond of the destruction they wreak while “saving the Earth.”
Her infernal form also has the form of a cat, albeit one with spiky pitch black fur, three crimson LED eyes, matching ebony horns, a trio of snake-headed tails, and a palpable cloak of entropy. Continue reading
Some years back, an audacious sorcerer attempted to commune with Bonoham, the Duchess of Phosphor. Intrigued by someone with the power and temerity to reach out to her, she opened a hellmouth and extended a portion of her undying felfire into the mortal realms. However, his rituals and her attunement interacted in an unexpected way causing the portal to snap shut and severing a portion of her forces from her.
Rather than dissipating, the forces took on a life of their own, immolating the sorcerer on the spot and possessing what remained of his ruined flesh. When the Duchess re-established the hellmouth, her forces had already fled – no longer wishing to be reunited with their infernal whole. Continue reading
