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.

Mercurian of Fire
Zachariel is a master of ceremonies who specializes in wakes, memorials, and vigils. The Mercurian angel’s duty is twofold:
- Preserve the memory of the dead and fallen
- Help those who grieve to process their anger and sorrow in ways that are not self-destructive.
Mercurian Wordbound of a Missing Word
Bitigedilu is the Angel of …. Just one problem, he doesn’t know what … means – and neither does anyone else. Bitigedilu received confirmation from both Jean and Yves that he is indeed Wordbound, but neither of them is sure what his Word is or what it means either.
Turns out it’s really hard to find demons that are associated with the canonical hours. It’s almost like there are centuries of lore built up that presuppose that demons dislike periods of intense prayer (who would have guessed). Conversely, there are lots of demons associated with the “Italian” hours. Continue reading
Today’s post comes from a conversation I was having with one of my old roommates. We were discussing In Nomine and gods and heavy metal, and they were joking that heavy metal might actually be hell’s music – and that all the mythological themes that show up in it were really an attempt to strip the corresponding associations away from the Ethereals who held them previously.
So naturally, I brought up Furfur: how he’s the Prince of Hardcore; how he’s given to excess; how I imagined his court being a fusion of metal and fanaticism; how I disliked the purely Islamic overtones of fanaticism that showed up in the Dark Khalid writeup.
So my friend asks: “Is there a Demon of Straightedge and a Demon of Veganism under him?”
There wasn’t before. There is now. I hope you enjoy them. Continue reading

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.
Hasmed has always preferred a simple life. One angel, one gun, one round. If that is not enough to solve the problem, it was never Hasmed’s to solve. They try to take a similar approach towards helping humans.
As a spirit of dueling, Hasmed will not discourage a wronged party from seeking satisfaction. However, the angel will encourage them to find a place of focus. High emotions can lead to sloppy or misplaced violence. Hasmed respects neither.
Once, not terribly long ago Hachamel was a minor Servitor of Stone.
As an angel he spent decades of his immortal existence growing up and growing old so that he could be truly embedded within a mortal community. However, when his orders finally came down, Hachamel was not commissioned to take on the forces of hell. His job was to join local letter writing campaigns. Lots of local letter writing campaigns.
Before Saminga realized how closely medicine was related to his own Word, Kobal slipped in with one of his longer lasting jokes: the Four Humors.
Though they are much diminished (with the exception of Rubido, Demon of Blood), Kobal has continued to use these demons as liaisons with other superiors. They are not Kobal’s only Marquis, but they are some of the better known ones.
