This is an entry I made a while ago that talks about very powerful fiend types in my religion's pantheon though its more like monsterpedia hope its interesting reading.
The Duvalliox (du-vall-i-ox) are an elite race of dark fiends created by the King of Darkness that serve and reside close to him uncompromisingly loyal to him and only him and those he allows to command them. It’s said that those that get corrupted or die by the emotions these vile creatures are birthed and are comprised from can return back to life as one of these dark fiends, an obedient slave to the ruler of evil. Those who were once human or anything else that now resides with him can never again be human or otherwise for they have been corrupted beyond recognition by the worst of the negative emotions, Despair, Hatred, Anger, Sorrow. There are a number of classes of dark fiend that are classified by their level of evil within them and are classified into two main categories all together as, Nightmare and Abyssmal.
Category I- Nightmare Fiends- Fiends are the first legion of the armies of the dark depths. They are the weakest of the two legions but are still not to be underestimated, like any dark fiend they are vicious and merciless and near mindless killing machines who embody the worst negative emotions.
The three classes of the Nightmares.
II. Lesser Bloods
III. Hell Casters
Scunners: As their name suggests are the vile and the weakest of the Nightmares. This category is further broken down as,
Scunner- Blade: Embodiments of Jealousy.
Scunner- Maggot: Embodiments of Repugnance.
Scunner- Lust: Embodiments of unexpressed Desires.
Scunner- Wrath: Embodiments of Bile.
Hell Casters: Are powerful elemental dark fiends that can bend nature’s elements to their will. Unlike the lesser fiends of the Duvalliox these are extremely intelligent and are often underestimated for their low position in the hierarchy but are indeed more dangerous than some members of the Abyssmal category.
Hell Caster- Hudor: Made from water animated by the rage of a drowned person’s soul.
Hell Caster- Glaciem: Made the same way as Hudor but stronger.
Hell Caster- Gaia: Created by the anger and utter fear of a person who was buried alive.
Hell Caster- Metallum: Made the same way as Gaia but the level of fear and anger was significantly greater even after being resurrected, their bodies became as dense and strong as steel.
Hell Caster- Pyro: Created by the vengeful souls of those burned alive be it by accident or intentional.
Hell Caster- Bronto: Made in the same way to the Pyro as well as those killed in life by lightning or via electrocution, their rage from their wrongful or untimely death has resurrected them into these monsters.
Hell Caster- Auro: It is unknown how exactly the Auro Hell caster comes to be.
Hell Caster- Energeia: The same with Auro its unclear how its created.
Lesser Bloods: Are dark fiends made of blood mostly from humans that were sacrificed their malice animated the vast puddles of blood made from these murders of innocents. There is only one member of the Lesser Bloods but the power of “one” being is another thing that is underestimated, for only one may be needed to bring down an army of a million.
Category II- Abyssmal Fiends- Are the second and final legion of the dark armies of the more frozen regions of the dark abyss. These are considered to be the strongest and vilest of all the dark slaves of evil, dark fiends of this classification are very strong and have the power to destroy entire lands and if they desire so even level mountains, it’s said that some of these Category II’s are so evil, their very presence causes water and liquids to boil, and some objects sometimes things that represent or symbolizes good and life to catch fire, plants and flowers have been known to wilt and burn near these fiend types till they’re black and charred.
The Three classes of the Abyssmals.
I. Greater Bloods
IV. Abyssmal Knights
Greater Bloods: More advanced blood based dark fiends made in the same fashion as their lesser forms, only the main component of these fiends is the blood spilled by sacrificed infants rather than adults, these are the rage of souls that never grew to experience the world and its wonders and as one should, forever cursing them to never recognize the light that makes a soul flourish.
Mal-Ice Blood: Is a terrifying blood based dark fiends made out of frozen blood, its theorized that this one is frozen because of the immensely cold depths of the abyss whether if this is true or not is anyone’s guess. A more likely reason is that they are so soulless and empty from not living and experiencing anything in life that they are cold and utter remnants of something never realized by anyone nor life itself.
Hemamancer: It is said that these bloodmancers were the ones that created the Lesser Bloods and the Mal-Ice Bloods through dark magic ritual sacrifices in which they murdered the innocent men, woman, and infants to make their monstrosities. They use dark blood magic to twist and corrupt the innocent blood creating the Lesser and Grater Bloods. Being basically hemakinetic they can control it at will in both the living and the dead, they can use it to torture people by making their own blood attack their own bodies from the inside. If these dark fiends like any of the ones of the Duvalliox were ever human, they are forever lost and cursed to be slaves of evil.
Vile Grim: These are the King of Darkness’s personal reapers they are often sent by him to reap and deliver the souls of both innocents and evil people alike for an unknown but likely horrible a purpose very few have fought and killed a Vile Grim and lived to tell the tale. These monsters have the power to reach into the body of a person and or living thing and rip its soul right out of its vessel, they are disgusting skeletal abyssmal jackals that hunt and feed for an unsuspecting soul, they have been seen using boned scythes stained with blood that they enjoy using to cut a body in half down the middle and snatch its soul.
“Odiumque Incarnatus” or Hatred Incarnate: Pure embodiments of hate that devour their prey with their large razor sharped toothed mouth and slash with their long talons. These dark fiends serve was the gate keepers of the arch-like doorways to the King’s palace, though they do get agitated by their duties standing around guarding the colossal stairwell they would not dare abandon them as they will feel their wrath of their master. Their seven eyes enable them to see in all conditions and gives them a very strong sense of their environment in other words, it’s almost impossible to sneak up on one.
Furious: The bodies of capital criminals from many civilizations were sentenced to be trapped in steel body cages and hang off cliff sides were ravens and crows would feast on them both dead and alive slowly peaking them to death until they were bones. Like many people who died or endured horrible things, these people returned as hulking muscular-like body caged skeletons that burn on fire with fury generated by their rage and malice for the pain they suffered during their last hours being fed on by hungry crows, these giants stood eight to twelve feet tall dragging large bladed and spiked flails to fight. The most notable Furious was named in life as General Xaxtus Mortzullus who would later earn the title of “Imprisoned the Furious”. He was the Bazartharv emperor’s most trusted and greatest general many years before Vardulus assumed power over the old Holy Bazartharv Empire. The old emperor sentenced him to the horrid fate after he personally discovered his best general was sexually involved with his thirteen-year-old daughter the princess, enraged by his violation in the trust he had in him he personally cut off his sexual organs and boiled him alive in black oil, oil that drips off his skeleton and body cage today leaving a black steaming sticky trail.
Angelos: Are immensely powerful and feared dark fiends that were once light elementals and or are artificially created embodiments of light. These include fallen and exiled Arcadians or is some beliefs called (angels) and dark fiends that possess both fiendish and angelic traits that classify them as hybrids that align with the darkness.
Faux Angelo: Dark fiends with angelic traits or sometimes created fiends that masquerade as beings of good and light that murder their prey after toying with them.
Lapso Angelo: In other religious terms a “fallen angel” or in truth an exiled or criminal Arcadian that has embraced darkness and evil corrupting them into dark light beings where the light from their glowing bodies shines dim and dark as if it where shining through a dusty and dirty window.
Abyssmal Knight: These are amongst the most powerful dark fiends there are next to the Angelos, in short they are the closest a dark fiend can get and evolve to being anything near the King of Darkness or any Dark God and or Deity. All dark fiend breeds fear and bow before these four royal knights of the abyss, little is known about them except their names and what they embody, these four have since their birth countless eons ago have served the King of Darkness loyally without question and if by some stroke of luck or chance they ever fail their master, he and only he can destroy them for no one not even their seemingly polar opposites that embody the capital virtues can’t even lay a hurting blow to them.
The names of the Knights:
Abyssmal Knight of Hopelessness: Vasasodd
Abyssmal Knight of Intemperance: Mazarra
Abyssmal Knight of Carelessness: Tizvall-lumin
