Should a party ever go searching for the apostles or should a grail quest make a turn for the infernal, the players will likely be directed towards Sandakel. He claims to have been Yves defender assigned to Jesus of Nazareth. His fellow prisoners below have taken to calling the Djinn “Iscariot,” and while he does not deny it, never once has he called himself by that name. Continue reading
The world is a punishment: beautiful to those without and terrible to those within.
Camael was one of the mightiest Elohim, and the first to fall during the war in heaven. His word was never Lucifer’s but rather a gift direct from the divine that he refused to relinquish. As such, Camael does not consider himself a demon prince, but instead sees himself as a patron of angels in exile. Outcasts are as welcome in his ranks as the fallen.
In the beginning, Camael served heaven directly – correcting those who erred through the application of pain and penance. He was assisted in this task by both Dominic and Asmodeus. When Adam and Eve failed in Eden, Camael was among those who believed they should be punished. Continue reading
A handful of Lilim have dropped their disguises and are walking openly through the world. As usual in such cases of open defiance, Asmodeus and Dominic have teamed up to keep to preserve the mystery of heaven and hell. Unfortunately, their agents were a little obvious and the Lilim are now up at arms and looking for someone who will believe that Judgement and The Game collude while also banding together to defend each other.
Countex of Final Judgement, Demon of Pardons
A couple months back I shared a link to the Lesser Bot on the Liber Neglecta Facebook page. Some of the demons it churns out are quite fun, and with a bit of work could make for some fantastic NPCs.
Take Abersumi, the Demon of Pardons. Pardons is such an interesting Word. It implies both guilt and release, an end to formal punishment, a second chance, and a certain degree of favoritism. In many ways it is a perfect for The Game. Continue reading
Most Shedim try to cultivate their hosts over time, stretching out the human’s moral degradation over weeks or months if possible. That’s not Michael’s style (at least, not when he can be seen).
“Crazy 8s” Demas prefers to come in hard, ruin someone’s life, and move on before anyone has even realized that the demon’s host is behaving differently. It’s a kind of performance art, something to make other demons chuckle at the frailty and malleability of the humans that god would have put over them. 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
The first Demon of Adulteration was a Shedite of Beelzebub who had thought to join with Kobal after it’s first Superior died. Baal had other ideas, and conscripted the Demon of Adulteration to assist in The War effort. Few demons had as much direct experience with Purity’s mindset as one of Corruption’s wordbound servitors. Continue reading
There is a strange story that circulates among those who have seen either the Book of Names or the Book of Death. They claim that Lucifer never survived the War in Heaven; instead he was struck down by Metatron who was so stricken with grief that he perjured himself before all creation to claim that it was he who died. Unfortunately, his saying it “made it so” and “made it good,” and from that point forward Metatron “became” Lucifer, Prince of Lies. Continue reading
Labrys was once one of Michael’s favorite servitors. At the close of the War in Heaven, she was one of the warriors responsible for ensuring that none of the fallen could escape their new home before it could be sealed. Asmodeans in particular loathe her and her signature double-axe. Unfortunately, Labrys herself came close to falling in the late 1930’s, and has been working to rehabilitate herself since. Continue reading
“Kind people find that they are cruel, brave men discover that they are really cowards. Confronted with their true selves most men run away screaming!” – The Neverending Story
Bifrons was a Roman god of duality said to have had power over both portals and beginnings and endings. The god is most commonly depicted as having two heads facing in opposite directions.
The Bifrons Mirror appears to hold something of his magic. Continue reading
