Achololim

Lineage: EbonDragon / Marsilion
Title: Wisdom, He Who Awaits the Sign
Author: Quendalon

Like a gargoyle, the bat-headed, bat-winged Achololim perches atop the parapets of the Demon City. Jet-black skin, threaded with scars white as bone, covers his muscular frame, and his barbed tail lashes the air. Wherever he goes, even into Creation, the very stones beneath his feet whisper their own secret dooms. Achololim awaits the coming of a nameless being whose destiny has been blazoned upon the twisted skies of Malfeas. He knows nothing of the one he seeks, not even whether it is a demon, a mortal, or some other thing; but he continues to watch, and wait, for he knows that his time will come.

Alalgar

Lineage: Adorjan / Zinnridi
Title: Messenger, the Ever Open Door
Author: Quendalon

Those who would travel fast and far have been known to call upon Alalgar. He appears as a massive man swathed in violet draperies that swirl in an unseen wind. But to part his draperies reveals no body beneath, only a cold and windy darkness. Those who pass through that darkness find themselves elsewhere, for Alalgar is a bridge to other places, both in Malfeas and Creation. He ensnares those who offend him in cocoons of violet cloth, then casts them through his inner darkness to meet some bleak and lonely doom.

Alioth

Lineage: EbonDragon / Marsilion
Title: Messenger, Nightís Embrace
Author: Quendalon

Alioth appears as a cloud of velvety blackness that drifts like fog upon the air. His embrace grants the gift of solitude; those within know only darkness, cut off from all light and from all sound other than their own voice and the beating of their heart. For over a thousand years, Alioth has been bound within the Tomb of Night under the city of Nexus, and he yearns to be free.

Alveua

Lineage: EbonDragon / Erembour
Title: Expressive, Keeper of the Forge of Night
Author: White Wolf

Anetessa

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Amending, The Doctor Who May Not Heal
Author: TheHoverpope

A great ape, a doctor whose healing is artistry.

Anjelen

Lineage: EbonDragon / Erembour
Title: Wisdom and Indulgent, The Blood-Sacrament
Author: Shataina

Anjelen, a double-sexed being, is a dichotomy within itself: male, it is an ascetic priest; female, it is a veritable Maenad. It loves sacred things, but its definitions of sacred and profane shift with its sex, along with its beliefs and emotions. The wise sorcerer avoids it, for they say that even some bindings do not apply to all its forms.

Ataranta-Etana

Lineage: Cecelyne / Verthan
Title: Messenger, the Prophet in the Waste
Author: Kalisara

A woman of living copper, burnished to brilliance by sand and wind, Ataranta-Etana walks the wastes outside the city and speaks prophecies of the freeing of the Yozis. When Kimbery floods Cecelyne and all demonkind is reborn in Cytherea's womb, then, Ataranta-Etana has said, the old oaths will have no more force and Creation will be theirs once more. A motley cult of lesser demons follow her, and every Calibration they sacrifice a demon - or, if they have one, a human - in Kimbery's waters or Cytherea's flames.

Azimer

Lineage: Malfeas / Ligier
Title: Warden, the Hollow Knight
Author: Quendalon

Ligier is great among the demons of Malfeas. He guards many treasures that he holds dear; he has many goals that he would see fulfilled. The Hollow Knight serves as his right hand in such things. Azimer appears as a knight clad wholly in shining green steel. No flesh shows through his visor, nor through any chink in his armor. His keen senses and skill in battle are without peer, and there are few in Malfeas or Creation who would dare stand against him when he wields his brother Gervesin in battle. Should his visor be pried up, the armor falls away in a heap, lifeless and empty.

Baashayel

Lineage: Tharalstrazix / Temozarael
Title: the Prince Of Spite, Expressive Soul of Temozarael
Author: Han'ya

Baashayel embodies Temozarael's rage and frustration. He is the active soul, carrying out his master's will in the world. He takes the form of a writhing column of blood in the rough shape of a man, clad in robes of the blackest, silkiest hair. No one who has struck him or one of his minions can escape his gaze, but his retribution to them will be proportionate to the slight he has suffered. A proportion of about a hundred to one, but it's a proportion. Every blow he strikes burns his foes with the fire of his wrath. He storms through the world, destroying without aim or forethought, every blow struck against his living prison a blow by proxy against the gods and their servants.

Badr Basim

Lineage: Kimbery / Persine
Title: Messenger, the Unmarried Captain
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

Badr Basim is the champion of brave bachelors. He will lead an unmarried man to any thing that he desires, but by Basim's magic, that thing will be lost to him if he ever finds love. Badr Basim appears as a young, dark-skinned man with pairs of crows' wings at his wrist and the golden eyes of a bird. Sometimes, he takes the form of a wheeling flock of seabirds fighting over the corpse of a drowned man. He feeds off the thwarted desires of those he deals with.

Balseraph

Lineage: Ghroth / Mageddon
Title: Warden, the Metalsmith
Author: Nero's Boot

Born of fire and love and despair, Balseraph is the Metalsmith, the forger of Ghroth. He is a vast being, standing 12 feet tall, made of brimstone and magma, with hands as sharp as razors. He has no face, but his voice wells up from within him as if by means of echoes. In the days when the gods still knew their proper place, Balseraph was the Metalsmith of Yu-Shan, and it is said that his skill knew no equal, save from the component souls of Autochthon the Great Maker. The Metalsmith can bleed forth metal of any kind, save that of Magical Materials, and can forge weapons with strange techniques and lores imbedded in them. Once, Balseraph counted Autochthon as his most-loved mentor; now, the Metalsmith seeks only to see Autochton's blood course through the streets of Malfeas.

Berengiere

Lineage: Malfeas / Ligier
Title: Indulgent, the Weaver of Voices
Author: White Wolf

The Book of Sweet Words

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Messenger, the First Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This Chapter instructs the reader in the nature of demons and how they may be summoned and bound, and the many things which tempt, appease, and frighten them. In the Palace of the Crane, it appears as a man with a robe woven of sugar, with demon marionettes hanging upward from his gnarled hands.

The Breath That Consumes

Lineage: EbonDragon / Ur-Nammu
Title: Reflective
Author: Quendalon

Forever in motion, this black wind consumes all that it touches. Rock crumbles to sand, plants turn to ash, and flesh dissolves into shadow. Only bone endures, transmuted by the wind into rough black stone. When in Creation, it carves out a steadily widening circle of sand and ash during the night; within that circle, fire and water sputter into smoke and mist, while the sun seems curiously dim. Sun, fire and water wound the Breath outside of its circle; within, it fears only ice, red-hot metal and the Five Magical Materials.

Calymdos

Lineage: Kimbery / Persine
Title: Expressive, the Lung-Eater
Author: White Wolf

Cynessitten

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Growing, The Shapeless Expansion
Author: TheHoverpope

A barely sentient demon, one that is the grass underfoot made malign.

Dav

Lineage: Chorifa / Aiomina
Title: Expressive, The Mind Without a Home
Author: TheHoverpope

A disembodied soul, a pattern of thought that imprints itself on those uncautious enough to be near it.

Derethan

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Corrupting, The Sprouting Blight
Author: TheHoverpope

A creature of plague, for whom spreading disease is the sole purpose of living.

The Diagrams of Effortless Geometry

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Warden, the Sixth Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This Chapter tells the secrets of the warlike magics of the Infernals, detailing many styles of combat in its pages. In the Palace it is a shaven-headed man dressed in only a loincloth, covered with arcane tattoos. He is armd with every weapon that can be imagined, flickering in and out of his nine hands.

Dilmun

Lineage: Adorjan / Zinnridi
Title: Indulgent, the Intricate Paradise
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

Beyond every door awaits Dilmun, the place where all desires are satiated and all limits are removed. The space inside Dilmun is bent strangely in time and space; up is where one feels it to be, and 'then' and 'now' can be the same if you wish it. One can enter Dilmun by passing through a doorway without any knowledge of what lies beyond. But those who try and remove the treasures of Dilmun to the world outside discover that they cannot, for these treasures are shattered by the touch of natural law.

Djoria

Lineage: Talavos / He Who Exists For His Fate,
Title: Reflective, the Chevalier Of Nightmares
Author: Paranoia833

Astride her demonic mount, Djoria rides amidst the dreams of demons, lavishing fear and insecurity on all who dream of her. Despite her nature as a bringer of misery, Djoria truly loves all life, and longs for the day her duties will unnecessary. Because of this, she has great sympathy with the malfeans, and the cause of Oblivion. Recently, Djoria has taken to assuming form of a spectacularly beautiful Deathknight, with long white hair, a corpse-pale complexion and sad, violet eyes, clad in super heavy Soulsteel plate and riding a fire-breathing steed of black marble.

Drel-Ud

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Sil Urxan
Title: The Thumb On The Soul's Scale, Indulgent Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

There is an old man in musty brown robes who walks the edges of The Fields of Rot And Sorrow, looting the corpses of the dead and dropping their belongings into the sack he keeps at his waist. In his right hand is a scale that he clutches tightly to at all times. As he walks, he eventually crosses paths with his sister, Melisandra. At those times when her charms will not sway one to enter battle, Drel-Ud smiles a smile of razors as he opens the pouch at his side. The scale in his right hand knows the cost of his victim's soul and how much coin it will take for them to enter the fray. When their price is paid, they rush into battle to slaughter and be slaughtered... and Drel-Ud gives his sister a smile and begins to walk once more, collecting his fee from the dead.

Durgenil

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Adrigor
Title: The Thief of Flesh, Messenger Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

The Thief of Flesh is the prince of the twisted crows that dwell within The Fields borders. He can see through the eyes of each of his subjects and may speak through their beaks. There is a friendship of sorts between himself and Sil Urxan for he is the one who suggested to his father Adrigor to give Sil Urxan the feet of a crow when Adrigor devoured Sil Urxan's feet to create Durgenil. In return, the crows of Durgenil favor the corpse bloom of Sil Urxan more than the taste of any of dead. While this binds the two closer than Adrigor would like, it still breeds a hatred in Sil Urxan that one of a lower rank should be allowed to feast upon him. He is called upon to act as a spy within Creation, fearing only the blind, who are granted his sight in their own dead eyes as he passes near.

Emicrade

Lineage: Tharalstrazix / Temozarael
Title: The Clock Without Numbers Or Hands, Warding Soul of Temozarael
Author: Han'ya

Atop Temozarael's citadel (which is really an extension of Temozarela's form) there is a great clock, with no numbers and no hands. The great clockwork mechanisms hidden behind its milky white face tick away, inscrutable in their purpose. Occasionally, the mechanism will erupt outwards and go hunting, a great clockwork beast carved of bone and black Malfean iron, crackling with acidic green light. Emicrade, the most inscrutable of all of Tharalstrazix's souls, lurks within his burrow atop his lord Temozarael, biding his measureless time until he can escape and bring all continuity into unison and destroy the blasphemy of separated time. Emicrade is a being of unmeasured time, whether the measurements are simply ignored, infinite, or unknown. His mind (if it can be called that) functions without solid time, and as such does not change. To Emicrade, all summonings are as one summoning, all wounds as one wound, all hunts as one hunt, all meals as one meal, all facts as one fact, all mysteries as one mystery. Emicrade lives his boredom as an eternity and an instant at once, and revels in the white-hot infinity collapsed into a second that is victory and slaughter. He appears as a great beast, something like a cat, or perhaps some terrible lizard, at times like a boar, or some great worm or slug, or all of these at once. His every whirring component is soaked in a lubricant that causes all who touch it to erupt in hideous tumors. Every cog and gear, every whirring wheel, is razor-sharp and fiercely strong. Eyes it has wherever the acidic lightning that is its life-energy shows through its mechanical shell. These gateways to madness are its only weak point. They can open and close in a heartbeat, so it is useless to strike at them. Great chunks of the living mechanism must be torn away to open holes large enough to score blows. The ticking of clocks and the ringing of bronze bells is agony to Emicrade, and he cannot enter a domicile at noon if the inhabitants know it is noon.

Eshemanti

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Munaxes
Title: the Hundred Eyed Shouter of Blasphemies - [canonical; may not actually be a demon] (added by Enchantress)
Author: added by Enchantress

Esprevere

Lineage: Oramus / Remondin
Title: Expressive, the Vernal Aviatrix
Author: Quendalon

Esprevere has a passion for life. She is tall and slim, gleaming with oily scales of orange and yellow, and great dragonís wings unfold from her shoulders. Wherever she passes, strange life burgeons: unearthly seedlings and shoots rise from the earth, while the existing greenery swells and blossoms with unknown flowers and fruit. Pregnant mortals and animals that fall under her shadow give birth instantly, sometimes to perfectly formed children, at other times to bizarre prodigies and abominations. Though Esprevere normally leaves such things to whim and chance, she can choose the form such new life takes, and sorcerers often call her for this purpose.

Essanell

Lineage: Chorifa / Ypsos
Title: Indulgent, The Blades of Battles Past
Author: TheHoverpope

Greatest of the warriors of Chorifa's flesh, a creature made of and for combat.

Euskarra

Lineage: Thari / Gobasi
Title: Reflective, Never-Ceasing Speaker
Author: Mockery

Euskarra appears as a six-armed man covered in small sheets of gold and silver, which he peels from himself constantly, eventually revealing himself as herself, and continuing to peel and shed until he is male again, ever going back and forth. He/she too speaks all the languages of the year, and constantly, but only the tongue of the current month of creation. During Calibration, he/she falls silent, and her/his hands turn to works that cannot be explained when her/his speech begins again.

Evangeline

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Munaxes
Title: Messenger, The Whiplash Queen
Author: Shemjaza

There are many who speak out against their masters, and many who seek wisdom forbidden to them. But for these indiscretions against the ultimate hierarchy there is a price to be paid, that price is pain.

Demons know that this pain is called Evangeline.

Florivet

Lineage: Cecelyne / Orabilis
Title: Reflecting, the Whim-of-the-Wind
Author: White Wolf

Freygda

Lineage: EbonDragon / Aramedisae
Title: Wisdom, The Empty Eyes
Author: Kukla)

Freygda appears as a human figure whose hands and feet are both swapped, left and right, and whose bald head is wholly circumnavigated by a row of empty eye sockets. She sees through other's eyes, and can know other's thoughts. Freygda's skin is full of pocks, and she bears a barbed spear suitable for fishing, with which she tears out the entrails of her foes. She wanders blind and alone through Aramedisae's hallways, for she knows them well and she guards them from those who are not meant to be within them.

Gebre

Lineage: Cecelyne / Orabilis
Title: Messenger, the Pavane of Dying Stars
Author: White Wolf

Gervesin

Lineage: Malfeas / Ligier
Title: Messenger, the Grieving Lord
Author: White Wolf

Gobasi

Lineage: Thari
Title: Indulgent, the Unctuous Capnomancer
Author: Translucidity

All knowledge changes as it is recorded, oftentimes lessening its truths, occasionally becoming something new and profound; so too does the smoke from burning books reveal new insights to Gobasi. Appearing as a suave sophisticate of the South, his finery reeks of smoke, and an indispersible haze chases him to wherever he may seat himself. Ever-intoxicated by the fumes of lost knowledge that bubble through his hookah, he can be tricked into revealing immeasurably valuable lore in his efforts to prove his sagacity.

Gruidtsuru

Lineage: EbonDragon / Erembour
Title: Wisdom, The Aviary of Ink Wings
Author: Wordman

Many souls have been lost in fascination with the patterns produced by the writhing storm of jet-black ink and feathers that forms Gruidtsuru. It knows something, maybe everything, but for most of Creation its compelling, swirling blackness hold only madness and a concealed shrieking vortex leading to Malfeas. Its children are the only path it offers to its knowledge, cast out into Creation like birds thrown from their nest, and never welcome home without suitable offerings.

Gumela

Lineage: Adorjan / Jacint
Title: Wisdom, the Jeweled Auditor
Author: White Wolf

Hrulik

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Sil Urxan
Title: The Severing Sickness, Warden Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

The flesh consumed by Sil Urxan speaks of many persons involved with the slaughter that is Valxregen. The one most find themselves familiar with is Hrulik, The Severing Sickness. He rides a horse of bone and flame as he stalks the battlefield, a long, golden blade brandished high. Hrulik is clad in leper's rags and from beneath them weeps streams of infection and pus. He is the dishonor that claims those who live through the battle, the one who comes for those who were too weak to find a glorious death. His blade severs their will to live from their soul and leaves them a fragile husk, gagging evermore on their own cowardice.

Inchoal

Lineage: EbonDragon / Aramedisae
Title: Warden, The Deformed Child
Author: Translucidity

To look upon Inchoal is to see one's own firstborn staring back, their eyes full of hurt. It is to see them a twisted mockery of the human form, a vision so painful to regard that it sears itself into onlooker's minds for a year and a day. Perverting any true image of that child they might behold, the torment of such a sight pulls tears of blood from their eyes, and filled with loathing, they are driven only by a burning need to destroy the abomination they have spawned. Such is the power of this madness that even the childless are not spared it, though at least they endanger nothing more than their sanity and Inchoal himself.

Issa the Vain

Lineage: Adorjan / Ashar'Lhan
Title: Indulgent soul of Ashar'Lhan
Author: Nero's Boot

Issa is beautiful, for she is the first beautiful woman. She is the joy of physicality, the joy of carnality, and the pleasure of beautiful things. Perfect in body and visage, Issa is a thoughtless thing, indulging in her own desires as she wills. Still she is an artist, and many would slay their heart's love for the ownership of her works. Many lust for her in the Demon Realm, but she will have no lover, save that of a Solar she served in the Old Realm. Endlessly she waits for his rebirth, for she lusts for him, and will make him her slave, lest she herself wither away from despair.

Iyutah

Lineage: Kimbery / Madelrada
Title: Messenger, the Vitriolic Dragon
Author: White Wolf

Janequin

Lineage: Oramus / Remondin
Title: Indulgent, Fortune's Fool
Author: White Wolf

Jiagen

Lineage: Cecelyne / Orabilis
Title: Wisdom, The Girl Chained in Ignorance
Author: DariusSolluman

Jiagen appears as a young girl of the Blessed Isle, no older than seven or eight, dressed in a silk kimono of bright reds and greens. All around her, her shadow writhes and flows around her, occusionally snapping at the unwary. Jiagen is the Wisdom Soul of the End of All Wisdom, and to her is entrusted knowing everything that has never been learned. Once she was summoned by the wise, to learn quickly what no one else had ever thought to ask- now, she is a shell of her former self, and wanders the desert of Cecelyne, remembering only that she must remember what she has forgotten- for someone knows how the Yozis may escape, for she knows not how to break her own chains.

Jolenta

Lineage: Malfeas / Ekrasios
Title: Wisdom, the Creeping Oracle
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

Three serpents writhe inside Jolenta's clockwork bowel; she is an orrery, a nest of silver and brass hoops and gears, supporting revolving orbs of precious unearthly stone. She imprisons her three favorite children: the underworld serpents Furious Leaf, Coiling Brilliance, and Silent Fangs. In her motions, she blocks their every attempt to escape; studying her spinning orbs reveals the motions of the Malfean heavens.

Jugurtha

Lineage: EbonDragon / Ur-Nammu
Title: Expressive, the Coils of Night
Author: Quendalon

The demon prince Jugurtha presides over a palace of torment on Kimberyís bleak and empty shore. His massive black-skinned torso rests on a gargantuan serpentine body whose scales gleam like ripples on starlit water. Darkness roils about him and bends to his will, gaining substance with which to suffocate, crush and consume. For all his might and malice, he rarely kills, for he finds his greatest joys in breaking his prey in body, mind and soul. And when he utterly extinguishes the last spark of a mortalís will, he replaces it with a wisp of his own shadow, making that mortalís will his own.

Julex Il

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Tulchinary
Title: The River That Muffles Song, Expressive Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

Julex Il, the youngest of Tulchinary's tributary daughters, coils around the great feasting hall Wulgwyst and calls to speak with him, for she is sick with longing for his touch. Yet, he cannot leave until all his guests are dead or sated for his position is as host and undoer and he cannot betray this. So Julex Il coils round, listening for the whispers of her beloved Wulgwyst, sending out her children to drag the noisiest guests from the feast hall and drown them in her waters, for she cannot abide the sound of music or of laughter or the thought that Wulgwyst will never uproot himself and cross to her banks to be embraced. Of the three daughters of Tulchinary, she is the most commonly summoned. Often called upon by those who seek an end to joy and mirth, either out of spite or hatred, Julex Il fulfills her tasks with glee, coming as a tornado with a dozen lashing arms with which to gather up the offenders and silence them beneath her surface.

Kambos

Lineage: EbonDragon / Xipantek,
Title: the Flesh Eating Mask, Messenger Soul
Author: Telgar

Rarely seen in his true form, a stylized human face painted onto a simple noh mask, Kambos exists as a flesh-eater. He consumes the bodies of humans and demons alike, processing them into his own form, a congealed mass of brownish ooze that he can form into any shape that suits him. Most often the ooze appears in the rougly humanoid form of a hooded and cloaked savant. The flesh-ooze of Kambos quickly disintegrates, forcing the flesh eater to devour victims at a rapacious rate.

Kassat

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Messenger, the Vigilant Collector
Author: Mockery

Kassat wears robes (and is composed of) of shimmering glass, prismatic and bright. Underneath these, she holds treasures the like of which the world may never know. The folds of her garb part from time to time, and what it reveals is never human beneath, but a collection of oddities and wonders the likes of which even the Wyld might find far-fetched and amazing. Sometimes, little trinkets fall free from her body, and she does not notice this unless called to her attention. What falls may be as unimportant as a sphere that emits a gentle glow, and does not move from where it is placed, even if that place should be in midair, or a first-age weapon of unfathomable potential. Kassat deals only in unique items: that which she has already will not interest her, unless its possession makes her own more valuable.

Khsiret

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Geneth
Title: Defining, Bearer of the Fiery Chalice
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

In his home, Khsiret is the inspiration for the Lightning Spider magic: a many-legged, lacy shape of shadow, in whose centre burns a many-coloured flame. In the winding halls of his Manse, he weaves deep magics. Summoned into the world, he appears as a shadow puppet of dark wood, carrying a chalice filled with flames. One who drinks from the chalice is filled with energy, and if he can contain it, it will bring him great might.

Kimbery's Dawn

Lineage: Kimbery / The Tide That Knows No Life
Title: Progenitive
Author: White Wolf

Kubriya

Lineage: Tharalstrazix / Temozarael
Title: The Lord Of Flesh, Messenger Soul of Temozarael
Author: Han'ya

When Creation was young, the Primordials exercised their creativity and populated it with life to amuse themselves. Kubriya was considered a bit obsessed even by his compatriots. He loved nothing more than to shape, and reshape, and at last render shapeless, that which lives and bears flesh. His hordes of creations were traumatic to look upon, and deadly to fight, in the Primordial War. Since his exile to Malfeas, he has turned his creative fury to breeding warriors to win his lord's freedom. These mad half-alive creatures are like something out of a nightmare, but there is a certain purity and power in their patchwork forms. Kubriya's creations represent the epitome of natural selection and purity of form and mind, if they can truly be said to have minds. They live for their lord's pleasure, and cannot be readily commanded by any but him, being devoid of ears. This, along with inhuman toughness, allows them to survive as they roam the desert of Cecelyne, unharmed by the heat of Ligier, the dryness of Cecelyne, or the scouring ravages of Adorjan. They are most at home in the desert, and will gladly wander there for days on end. Kubriya himself has little interest in shaping his own form, being both somewhat lazy and titanically arrogant. His form doesn't need much work in any case. When summoned, he assumes the form of a brawny, hairy man with huge, bloodstained wings, curved ebon claws, and blank white eyes, yet a strangely elegant face. His voice can sway the weak-minded, and he is skilled beyond mortal comprehension in the arts of surgery. Blood is his preferred beverage, and he finds its taste sweet beyond measure. He will erupt into berserk rage if he is to see anything he perceives as beautiful damaged in any way. The defilement of beauty is one of the greatest sins in his mind.

Liellus

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Geneth
Title: Defining, the Indexer of Archives
Author: Quendalon

Resembling a bleached, too-tall corpse in gray and gold, bearing a massive codex bound in human skin, Liellus travels through all the layers of Malfeas to visit the glass libraries laid down by Orabilis. In each library, he traces his circuit among the shelves and stacks. He does not read the books nor study the lore that Orabilis has set down for the edification of the demon scholars. Instead, he records the title of each and every scholarly work in his codex, preparing a comprehensive index of the lore of the demon realm.

Loreli

Lineage: Kimbery / Fastred
Title: Wisdom, the Puppet with Cut Strings
Author: DariusSolluman

There is a place in which all the demons live. Fools call it Hell and Exalts call it Malfeas and the wise speak of it not at all. Within it, there is a place where all the demons live. The Demons call it Loreli, and behold it in wonder- a table of oak and brass and bone, as wide as a city block and held in a dome of salt and ash that is said to be the memory of the Pleasure Dome where once the True Rulers took their leisure. Inside is a sight to drive any mortal to madness: it is Malfeas, laid out in perfect detail. Every demon of Malfeas can be seen, save those that cannot, and Loreli at all times knows where anyone of Malfeas is, should anyone but ask. Looking at Loreli, it seems as though the model grows larger, or you grow smaller, as though you are falling to the great table to those who you look upon. Loreli watches himself, as is only just, a small child with red skin and blue eyes and golden hair, dressed in cloth of silver and tied to the table with strings of brass. Though you may try, you will not cut these strings - Loreli fled once, and Kimbery punished the wayward soul well.

The Manual of Efficacious Surgery

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Expressive, the Second Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This Chapter tells of the atrocities that Infernals have subjected themselves to in their quest for power - the golden needles of the anima transformation, the clockwork heart of immortality, and so forth. In the Palace, it is a maiden with steel fingernails that drip with blood, and who always has insects crawling up her back. She holds all the Infernals' knowledge of internal magic.

Title: Indulgent, The Unrelenting Crimson Mask
Author: Lucy4Luvzu

Melisandra

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Sil Urxan
Title: The Alabaster Throat With Silver Tongues, Messenger Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

The most lovely of those of Sil Urxan, Melisandra is a beautiful porcelain doll draped in dresses of purest white, beaming upon you with her soft eyes. Her ebony hair perches atop her head softly, admiring you from above. She speaks to you in comforting tones as you walk through the charnel house around you and reminds you of its necessity if you are to lay claim to her. Only those watching her speak from afar see her true self as each one of her four faces spins to speak to another possible suitor. Her eyes glow the colors of the four elemental poles as her pale faces speak the language of whomever they seek. Sorcerers summon her to translate unknown texts and teach them languages lost to Creation. These translations are never perfect, always purposefully corrupting a crucial phrase that will enrage those being poken to or leaving out a critical passage in an engineering diagram.

Mellamy

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Indulgent, Confessor Wreathed in Grey
Author: Mockery

All men and women have secrets. Desires wear away self-control, and one's holding back slowly gives way, and a dam-burst of vice is the result. Mellamy will listen to you. Mellamy will absolve your sins. She smiles, takes your hand, and for one last night, those whom she blesses indulge themselves with her as they see fit, be it in gambling, drink, drugs, sex, or violence, until they pass out from exhaustion. When the sun rises again on them, their sins seem distant and far away, and the concept of indulging again, just a little, is foreign to them, though new vices will always spring up to take their place. Mellamy appears as a lovely, tempting young woman with ruddy hair and grey eyes, dressed in argent sheets and veils that never truly reveal, but hint at what must lay beneath. She may take other forms, though this is her favorite. No matter what shape she wears, she may be picked out by her necklace of clam-shells.

The Memory of Transformation

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Defining, the Seventh Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This Book tells of the death of Adrián's fetich soul and her subsequent change into Adorjan, and other sufferings of the Primordials as they fought the Exalted for dominion. To read it is to understand the pain of having one's soul die, and yet to survive. It is the knowledge in this book alone that triggers the change, for the worthy, into Exalts of the Yozis. All the others but prepare the reader for the darkness to come. The Memory of Transformation appears as a figure robed in burgundy silk; only its six hands can be seen inside, spindly and pale as marble. They each hold aloft a broken crystal sphere.

Merach

Lineage: Sadagares / Ketu-Mula
Title: Reflective, Thief of a Thousand Destinies
Author: Quendalon

The demon Merach holds a talent unique among the Malfean incubi. In the throes of passion, he may draw forth a loverís destiny in the shape of a star. Some destinies he confers upon other lovers; some he keeps in crystal phials, to give to other demons or to store on the high shelves of his drifting copper palace; the rest he swallows, so that their purpose and meaning are forever lost. His mortal forms are many and varied, of every possible permutation of race and gender, and in each he is infinitely desirable. Those well versed in the lore of Malfeas can recognize him by the ever-shifting mark on his forehead which he conceals beneath his hair. It is said that he once loved a maiden of the Lunar Exalted, whose destiny he stole at the Yozisí behest, and that though she will not have him, he pines for her still.

The Mirror of Her Mind

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Reflective, the Fifth Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This Book of the Broken-Winged Crane is said to be the journal of the first person to plumb its depths - or perhaps the last. It takes that person's form: a young lady, armoured in feather-mail and armed with a bow like a branch of the cosmic tree. She teaches the consequences of the Long Step into darkness.

Mokol

Lineage: Kimbery / Persine
Title: Embracer of the Forgotten Deeps
Author: StalkerofShadows

Many great works have been sacrificed to Persine over the Ages. Many more have been sacrificed unknowningly, lost at sea. Persine cannot watch over all of these treasures in either Malfeas or Creation. Thus it created Mokol to catalog and guard its treasures. Mokol haunts the lightless depths of Kimberry, passing back and forth in a route to eternally defend the lost from those that would find them. Mokol is an incredibly jealous soul, that which he touches he considers his forever, and those that would seek them are unworthy to even behold what is his. He knows the moment one touches any of the treasures which he guards, and may bring himself to any such location. Although ever vigilant, Mokol is not without reason. If faced with overwhelming odds he will flee to another sunken location, and plot his revenge. He appears as a great siaka with a number of surprisingly gentle tentacles growing from his body. Mokol seeks to caress the precious treasures he guards, for their touch comforts him. Sorcerers may summon Mokol to guard any undersea location. However, Mokol greatly resents imprisonment as he cannot exist simutaneously in Malfeas and Creation as those above him in station.

Mumadomna

Lineage: Malfeas / Clariandra
Title: Defining, the Brazen Patriarch
Author: Quendalon

From a high minaret that looks out over the black infinities of the Demon City, the Brazen Patriarch calls the demons to prayer. Mumadomna is a massive, imposing near-human presence, clad in rich vestments of many colors, crowned with a tall mitre of blue glass and bearing a staff of ivory and gold. In Creation, he travels astride a water buffalo made of green sand. His voice is sonorous and deep with the power of the Yozis. He keeps his many faces within a compartment inside his chest so that he may switch them about at his whim; each compels those who listen to his sermon to succumb to a different sin.

Nedian

Lineage: EbonDragon / Erembour
Title: Defining, The Unknown Dark
Author: TheMyriadOfShades

Nedian's true shape is that of Erembour's true shadow-- when he is off on his own, either by some private whim or by sorcerous command, Erembour is left to effortlessly craft a more mundane shadow for herself. If Nedian were to be destroyed, Erembour would temporarily be without a real shadow and would lose her command over the creatures of the night (and, in Malfeas, the monsters that lurk in the Ebon Dragon's Shadow) until she regenerated him. This takes a lunar month in Creation, a week in Malfeas, and a single night if she can summon Aluveia to her side and set her to the task of remaking Nedian. Nedian can take the shape of any of the creatures of the night, but is more often a formless, shifting shadow. He has no human shape, as his was the love of the dark beyond human settlements, from whence spring the things that haunt men in the darkness. The creatures of the underways beneath the world do homage to him, for his darkness is that of things beyond the influence of both men and gods.

Netraphim

Lineage: Tharalstrazix / Temozarael
Title: The Flaw In The Armour Of Contempt, Indulgent Soul of Temozarael
Author: Han'ya

Seeds of doubt lurk in all minds, for a mind without possibility for change is not a mind. Netraphim is the flaw in the armour of contempt, the lurking doubt at the back of Temozarael's mind. If Temozarael is purity of desire and purpose, Netraphim is weakness, loss of conviction, and the death of faith. Her aspect is that of a cloaked woman, with skin the color of snow at night and an inhuman strength. Her voice can undermine the most strongly held convictions and shatter the faith of gods in themselves, causing them to dissolve back into ambient Essence.

Niremar

Lineage: EbonDragon / Xipantek,
Title: Tamer of Burning Mares, Warden Soul of the Shadow Feeder,
Author: GoldenCat and Greymane

Niremar fears no darkness save his own. He is fear made flesh, the red-eyed terror who lurks under the beds and in the closets of children and haunts the woods as brave men pass through them at night. Niremar even stalks himself. Niremar shatters every mirror or pane of glass, dirtying clear still pond. His mere presence blackens polished steel and causes silver and gold to tarnish. Niremar appears tall, made of shadows, clad in an armor of iron that ends in arrows of burning-hot flame, his great night mane framed by iron horns. Niremar is shadow and fear, and the burning mares of Malfeas that embody every fear of Creation answer to him and only to him.

Nypion

Lineage: Kimbery / Anhelios
Title: The Reflective Soul of Anhelios, The Sorcerer's Arm
Author: Thinker

Embodying the Demon Starís relationship with the sailors upon the Malfean Ocean, Nypion lends his strength to those who bind him or earn his favor. In his natural state Nypion appears as a hollow demon, nearly nine feet tall and with huge bulging muscles, oddly counter pointing his hollow center. Nypion roams both above and below the waters of Kimbery and knows of all things that move upon the lightless sea and within it. Mortals of the west that truly worship the Yozis and work for their return can sometimes receive Nypionís favor: when called by the proper rituals Nypion can slip into Creation and join himself to a worshiper, lending him his terrible Demonic power for a single worthy task. Far more often Nypion is summoned and bound by a Celestial Exalted Sorcerer who desires his strength in combat, and forces the same union upon him. Nypion is not fond of these forced unions, though he is less tenacious in his grudges than some demons, and will generally not actively seek the sorcerer's destruction unless an oportunity presents itself. If a sorcerer attempts to bind Nypion and fails he will invariably try to possess the sorcerer and Hollow out his Soul, using his body as a vessel to spread the aims of Kimbery in Creation before throwing him off a cliff into the ocean.

Octavian

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Munaxes
Title: Defining, the Living Tower
Author: White Wolf

Oshymitus

Lineage: Oramus / Xerysis
Title: Warden, the Eyes of Everywhere and Nowhere
Author: Dimitryi

In the void between Oramus' wings, Oshymitus is a thin web of capillaries and blood vessels covered with eyes, forming a vast constellation in the emptiness. When summoned into Creation, Oshymitus coils up into itself, forming a ball of pulsating veins and shifting eyes roughly six feet in diameter, which bobs in the air when materialized. Oshymitus is always watching, extending his capillary-eyes far away and through tiny cracks to view activities unseen. This demon is typically summoned to protect the paranoid, as a spy and interrogator bound to root out conspiracies and uncover hidden dangers.

Oskilla

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Expressive, the Eggshell Sentry
Author: Mockery

To summon Oskilla, one must take the live egg of a bird. Any species of bird works, though certain First Age texts suggest the egg of a dove. The egg must be near hatching, though uncracked, and is placed within the summoning circle as the ritual begins. This egg and the new life it contains are annihilated in the summoning, and become the host for the massive, quasi-reptilian monstrosity that emerges, both strong of arm and quick of wit, and is oftened summoned for the visions he may induce.

The Outstretched Fist

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / The Punisher Of Sin
Title: Defining Soul of the Punisher of Sin
Author: FrivYeti

Phormetis

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Absorbing, The Permanence of Change
Author: TheHoverpope

An oracle and scholar who holds in his hand the wisdom of the demon city.

Prex Il

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Tulchinary
Title: The River That Erodes Peace, Indulgent Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

Of Tulchinary's three tributary daughters, Prex Il is the most ambitious. Coursing through The Fields from the delta where her father ends and she begins, Prex Il is ever-seeking to widen her banks. Unlike most of The Fields inhabitants, she courses through Malfeas, seeking out those demons lower than herself or those unknowing her true nature. Her tumultuous bloody waters roil and bubble, lashing against the shore, calling to those near her of their neighbors treacheries. As those at her banks wade across her expanse to face those on the other side, Prex Il pulls them under and consumes them, leaving only a husk behind. These husks rise from her depths and dig along her borders to expand her reach ever further.

Ratex Il

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Tulchinary
Title: The River That Forbids Children, Defining Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

Once Tulchinary was the river that quenched thirst of the victorious. Now, it's daughter Ratex Il, has grown to despise those that once drank from her father's waters. Ratex Il watches the battles that rage across The Fields of Rot and Sorrow with sadistic glee, waiting for the victors to come and wash themselves in her bloody waters. As they touch her surface, she begins to siphon their strength, their will, and all the children they may have ever had. Those Ratex Il touches are evermore sterile and no amount of sorcery can return their ability to parent a child. This is the vengeance of Ratex Il; impotence, just as her grandsire was rendered impotent by his imprisonment in Malfeas.

Roiye

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Warden, Mote in the Eye of the Sun
Author: Mockery

Roiye is perhaps one of the most dangerous demon of his kind to the mighty. It is given to him that the more powerful and divine a heavenly creature is, the less visible he becomes in its eyes. He exists more thoroughly outside the watch of Fate than most other demons, such that those creatures who are bound to heaven and its service find it more difficult to percieve him, and his actions are completely unpredictable by astrology. He can also extend his touch to others, shielding them from the watch of Heaven for a time.

Ronwe

Lineage: EbonDragon / Erembour
Title: Messenger, The Unlit Pedagogue
Author: Wordman

Darkness compels not because it is dangerous, but because it holds secrets -- forbidden knowledge, hidden feelings and concealed lusts. Ronwe embodies these secrets and lives to teach any willing to shun the light for them. Known for skilled instruction in the art of love, Ronwe's presence fills those nearby with a lust they long to hide until it may be slaked in the comfort of darkness. Calling Ronwe from full shadow, craftier summoners know that much more than carnal knowledge may be gleaned from the darkness. In the light, Ronwe conceals its true face with the appearance of the physical type the viewer most desires, but in darkness it is comfortably shapeless, forming whatever limb or orifice is needed for the lesson at hand.

Scevola,

Lineage: Uthlanga / Esclarmonde
Title: Expressive Soul, the Cartographer of the Cage
Author: White Wolf

As Makarios travels west of the Between-Worlds Tower, the Lake of Coins rotates around it in reflection of his movement, winding or unwinding the landscape in anticipation of his return. So it is with all the souls of the Yozis; their movements reshape their prison in direct or indirect ways. There are places in the demon realm that even disappear when their Second Circle wardens are summoned and bound. The naked youth, Scevola, understands the changes of the cage, and by gazing upon the landscape through the vision of a blue-eyed mortal, he can determine the whereabouts of any demon who is currently present in Malfeas.

In fear that Scevola will create a map which lays out these movements for Unquestionable and commoner alike to see, as is his ultimate dream, his progenitor has encased his hands in molten-glass gloves which prevent him from lifting a pen or handling parchments. These are also Scevla's weapons, and if need be the glass will extend to protect vulnerable parts of the youth's body.

The Scroll of Bright Secrets

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Indulgent, the Fourth Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This book is full of the joys of corruption; inside it catalogues the victories of the Yozis over the past millennia and longer, and tells of their exultations. In the palace it appears as a delicate, naken maiden, pouring wine out of a human heart.

The Sedurian

Lineage: Adorjan / Jacint
Title: Expressive, Who Twists the World out of Shape
Author: White Wolf

An inteligent, erudite lizard-demon with a knack for Manse construction and warping space, as well as combining the two.

Sekai

Lineage: EbonDragon / Ur-Nammu
Title: Warden, the Shadow-Rider
Author: Quendalon

Sekai towers over most men, with broad shoulders and a powerful build. Her skin and hair are both a dull gray, and her eyes gleam like ivory. Darkness swirls about her, clinging to her as gleaming black armor, congealing into hammers and blades at her design. She rides her own twisted shadow like a horse, and it comprises the greater part of her strength; it may split into many or merge into one, or take tangible form and act on her behalf.

Shabbuth-Which-Cannot-Walk

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Longing, Which Cannot Walk
Author: TheHoverpope

A great tree cursed by his own immobility.

Shedu

Lineage: Ghroth / Mageddon
Title: Expressive, the Poetry of Desolation
Author: Nero's Boot

Even demons have their poets, and among the demons of the 2nd circle, no greater poet is there than Shedu, the Poetry of Desolation. In the time before Ghroth's chaining, Shedu was the Bringer of Tears and Sorrow, for her stanzas could reduce even the hardest-hearted of gods and Primordials to tears. Now, she spreads misery with her verses, seeking only to add her sorrow to the joy of others. Unlike all other demons, her binding was different, for she is not bound in Hell, but rather bound to witness endless catastrophy in Creation, a vagabond without power over where she wanders. For this reason, she hates Creation more than Ghroth himself, for her own home is now her cell of confinement. No sorcerer can summon her, but tragedy that leaves nations desolate can bring her forth.

Shikara

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / The Punisher Of Sin
Title: the River of Sorrow, Indulgent Soul of the Punisher of Sin
Author: FrivYeti

Shoggoleth

Lineage: Chorifa / Dikos Mou
Title: Defining, The Knife That Wittles Away

A demon who bargains with anyone willing; she has great gifts and greater costs.

Lineage: Kimbery / Madelrada
Title: Indulgent, the Player of Games
Author: White Wolf

Skrissim

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Adrigor
Title: The Little Butcher
Author: EwindaleMoss

Ever underfoot, picking at the carrion within the fields and carrying it back to their grandfather's mouths are the rats of Skrissim. Skrissim himself moves slowly and thoughtfully from one corpse to the next, sickly yellow eyes peering out from beneath his rat skull headress and tattered fur robes. No one knows what blackness lurks beneath the rat skin Skrissim wears and the wise choose not to speculate. Instead, they watch Skrissim's twisted claws as he carves apart the corpses that meet with his approval. He apportions out enough for his subjects, then eats his own fill. His is a disquieting mirth as he disassembles flesh. Those who would call upon Skrissim have desires to learn anatomy and physiology for few know the methods of surgery and locations of organs better than The Little Butcher. However, those that would learn his technique also find themselves gaining a deep and abiding hunger for the flesh of their patients.

Sondok

Lineage: Malfeas / Ligier
Title: Warden, She-Who-Stands-In-Doorways
Author: White Wolf

Sossurl

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Defining, the Mason of Creation
Author: Mockery

Sossurl appears as a massive man, broad of shoulder and stocky of build, a trowel in one hand and and a block of basalt in the other. He may lay mortar with the trowel indefinitely, and whenever he sets the stone down, a new one forms in his hand. Where he lays down a wall, a divide springs up among men, and their purposes will come to oppose one another. He works with joy, and watches the strife it causes impassively. For now, he waits with the patience of the stone he holds to break free, and to begin his work by walling apart the five poles from each other.

Stanewald

Lineage: SheWhoLivesInHerName / Munaxes
Title: Reflective, She Who Surmounted the Omphalos
Author: White Wolf

Alluded to in the Scripture of the Maiden and the Road.

Talios, Lord Of Air And Darkness

Lineage: EbonDragon / Ur-Nammu
Title: Wisdom Soul of the Coils of Night
Author: Falcon

Building his shape out of transient shadows and the last breaths of mortals, Talios was always a greater power in Creation than in the stark green glare of Malfeas. When in the lands of mortals, everything spoken at night is carried to his ears by enslaved air spirits and he is constantly surrounded by a sussuration of nocturnal secrets. He is known to favour the number nine, although no one knows why, and he has not been sighted in Malfeas for centuries.

Tar Lashan

Lineage: TheFieldsOfRotAndSorrow / Sil Urxan
Title: The Blazing Web, Expressive Soul
Author: EwindaleMoss

Tar Lashan is the quietude that her siblings lack. Appearing as a great violet spider with the upper torso of a woman badly beaten with crimson hair, she wields a blazing staff in each of her hands. She will smile broadly as you observe her work, for the loneliness of her position has driven her mad. She was to be the most vivacious of those that Sil Urxan observes but that will never be. Her lust for power and hunt for riches is never ending as she weaves her webs to ensnare her foes. She is the general, the vizier, the council of advisors planning for war. As her plans come to fruition and those that would move against her fall into her web, she lights it aflame. At once, she is revealed and her plans are rent into the same ash as her foes. As the flames fail, she is in darkness once more, until her next quarry is burned alive before her. Those that would summon Tar Lashan seek to know how to undo their foes and she will grant them their vengeance, but one of their deepest desires shall never come to pass in return.

Tatjana

Lineage: Malfeas / Ekrasios
Title: Expressive, the Sobbing Dancer
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

Tatjana feels all joy and sorrow, so she dances through the world, celebrating and grieving. When she is torn from her exultant dirge, she can grant a moment of this perception to one who knows how to demand it, or free him forever from the pangs of pleasure and pain.

Tenesene

Lineage: Chorifa / Ypsos
Title: Reflective, The Track Unmarked

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Consuming, The Desirous Urge Freed
Author: TheHoverpope

An embodiment of desire who compulsively seduces.

Thancharat

Lineage: Cecelyne / Orabilis
Title: Warden, The Crawling Rune
Author: Quendalon

Thancharat most commonly manifests in the form of writing: a scrivenerís entry in a ledger, a sorcerous circle of runes, or a shining glyph that hangs quivering upon the air. These runes burn straight through the mind to impose thoughts, erase them, or simply shatter a hapless readerís sanity, leaving only a gibbering husk that jabbers endlessly in unknown tongues. Its mortal form is that of an elderly man or woman whose body is made of innumerable tiny runes, whose face bears a web of wrinkles that compose a cryptic sign of terrible potency.

Theda

Lineage: Kimbery / Fastred
Title: Indulgent, That Which Came Before
Author: DariusSolluman

There was a place and a time. Before that, there was Theda. Theda can not be found now, for it is gone before it has arrived. Theda can only be found while on a journey elsewhere - he knows everything that can happen on the ending of a journey. Long ages ago, when the Willful Children still served as they should, it is said that Theda was the lover of the Maidens, and some still question its motivations and desires. When Theda is found, it is what would be most appropriate before the travel's end - a palace, an inn, a farmer's hut or a circus. Only its personal appearance remains constant: a tree, with rubies and emeralds for cherries and leaves, molted gold for bark and living brass for flesh, bleeding amber for sap.

The Thing in Horror of Itself

Lineage: Chorifa / Anapyxi
Title: Cleansing, The Thing in Horror of Itself
Author: TheHoverpope

A monster in unimaginable pain who seeks to kill everything thanks to his compassion.

Tolens

Lineage: Chorifa / Dikos Mou
Title: Reflective, The Bargain that is Not Equal
Author: TheHoverpope

A suffering creature remade by its master to be a mine for exotic materials.

The Tome of Bound Tongues

Lineage: Oramus / The Broken-Winged Crane
Title: Wisdom, the Third Chapter
Author: FourWillowsWeeping

This book tells of things better forgotten - the world before the Primordial War. It tells of the nature of demons and the deep workings of their minds; even the agatae are conprehensible to one that has mastered this book. In the Palace, it appears as a man in ancient armor, orbited by a constellation of eyes. He has a great many legs, but it is difficult to tell the precise number.

Tototh

Lineage: Chorifa / Aiomina
Title: Understanding, The Savant Who Has Felt Your Pain Or Will
Author: TheHoverpope

An abomination whose entire existence is to experience every suffering.

Trespan

Lineage: EbonDragon / Echthros
Title: Wisdom, the Mourning Sage
Author: Mockery

It is said that when Trespan first came into being, birthed from the wisdom of Echthros, he looked to his father and spoke The Truth. His words were not recorded, or perhaps they were, but the Rip in the World-Cloth has long since consumed them. He was cursed then and there to suffer, to know exactly what he looked at, to see nothing but the truth, the most awful truth there was. Since then, he has cycled between preternatural calm and insanity, regenerating his eyes only to tear them out when his too-keen vision divulges too much.

Txil Mahautztli

Lineage: Tharalstrazix / Jarlastran
Title: One Revealing Amidst Black Towers, Messenger Soul of Jarlastran
Author: Han'ya

Taking the form of an immense orb comprised of small hexagonal tiles of white jade, Txil Mahuatztli is the only means by which Jarlastran speaks with his subsidiary souls and with others. The death of One Crowned With Seven Rings In Quietude, Jarlastran's voice and expository ability, rendered Jarlastran unable to directly communicate with any but Txil Mahuatztli, his introspective subsidiary consciousness. The great soul rests in a cathedral constructed in the center of Jarlastran's six towers. He speaks to his subsidiary souls not with words, but by emitting light in sequence, pattern, and rhythm from the tiny jade hexagons that form his shell. These messages are an intricate code known only to his attendants, who relay their lord's will to all who would know it.

Unknown

Lineage: Malfeas / Ligier
Title: Expressive, Unknown Title
Author: White Wolf

Ur-Namuur

Lineage: Malfeas / Clariandra
Title: Wisdom, The Mask Who Stalks the Dance of Time
Author: Nero's Boot

All things once obeyed Clariandra, for she was regent and queen of all things that crawled or swam or flew. Even time itself was hers to beckon or dismiss, and Ur-Namuur, the Mask Who Stalks the Dance of Time, was her herald in these things. Once, Ur-Namuur could travel the weft and warp of time, stepping between the moments like a spider in his web, but after the dawn of the First Age, such gifts were lost to him. Entrapped in Malfeas, Ur-Namuur cannot walk Creation, nor may he be summoned, for should he walk the world once more, time would be his to conquer. In visage, Ur-Namuur is a titanic clockwork man, with a timepiece in his chest; like all the clocks of the Hell-realm, Ur-Namuur cannot tell proper time, and thus is lost in the eternity of imprisonment.

Uruk the Mighty

Lineage: Adorjan / Ashar'Lhan
Title: Expressive Soul of Ashar'Lhan
Author: Nero's Boot

Uruk the Mighty takes the visage of a warrior with thews of steel and burning brass, with a helmed face that bespeaks much suffering. Uruk is the inversion of his master Ashar'Lhan, and is the embodiment of pain. His skin bleeds for a million wounds, and to see his unhelmed face is to see a patchwork quilt of flayed flesh and sewed-on muscle. Uruk is revered by torturers and inquisitors, for many have need of his arts.

Vokmar

Lineage: Kimbery / Fastred
Title: Warden, She Who Strives
Author: DariusSolluman

Vokmar is a weapon. What weapon is drawn from the weilder- a sword in one hand, a quill in another. Vokmar grants victory to any that use her, save in their moment of greatest need - and at that moment, she twists, breaks, and fails, leaving those who strive to strive without her assistance. She sometimes appears as a woman over twelve feet tall, composed of blue fire and red water in equal proportion.

Yir the Golden

Lineage: Adorjan / Ashar'Lhan
Title: Warden soul of Ashar'Lhan
Author: Nero's Boot

Yir the Golden strides the field of battle like a prince among the earth, a giant ten feet tall, made of solid brass and clay. For Yir is the joy of battle, the glee of frenzy, and the love of carnage, all things that Ashar'Lhan longs for but cannot consumate. Yir wields the Harmony of Ecstacy, a daiklave of Malfean iron that slays all mortals it touches and causes Exalted to bleed from their eyes. Yir is mad with pain, for it is said that when Adorjan was Adrian, Yir was known as Yulnah the Free, the embodiment of bodiless mentality. Forced into solid shape with the rise of Adorjan, Yir the Golden suffers; and as he suffers, so suffers Creation.

Yura

Lineage: EbonDragon / Xipantek,
Title: of the Demon Hair, Indulgent Soul
Author: Telgar

A beautiful young woman, short and dark-haired, Yura spends most of her time manipulating weaker demons as puppets in her deranged shadow-plays. Wrapping her invisible hair-threads around them, Yura manipulates her puppets in a very real way, jerking their thoughts and bodies to dance.
