"We're talking about the discovery of yet another body; another one of God's creatures found mutilated and desecrated nearly beyond recognition. We ask ourselves, who could've done such a thing. What fiend created in God's own image could be so vile and sinister? What degenerate, what God-less piece of filth could have committed such a heinous act? What calculated purveyor of pain and misery? I'll tell you; An impostor of humanity, a demon hiding in man's skin and bones. A soul-less vessel of hate and depravity. And we know his name. Satan is among us, people. He walks our streets... No. There is no such thing as "walkign in our streets. His influence is so powerful that cross entire dimensions, reaching our hearts and corrupting our souls. He is corruptive. His Smile fair as spring, as towards him he draws you. His tongue sharp and silvery, as he implores you. Your wishes he grants, as he swears to adore you Gold, silver, jewels - he lay riches before you. Dues need be repaid, and he will come for you All to reclaim, no smile to console you. He'll snare you in bonds, eyes glowin' afire To gore and torment you until the stars expire."

Ragnarok Iblis, or also infamously known in theology as The Devil, Satan, Queen of Hell, Beelzebub, King of Hell, Mephistopheles, Lord of Darkness, Prince of Darkness or Ruler of All Evil and thousands more, is a Supreme Pure-Blooded Devil who was previously known as the Supreme Goddess of Evil and Death and has existed before the beginning of time, life and creation. Before everything began, Ragnarok already existed as a bodiless entity of chaos that unleashed darkness upon the existence with nothing but empty blackness and ruled over it for quintillion years until her sister, Sequined Sadist, appeared and created the Omniverse and all life. She is the mother of Leohart the Prince of Hell, Ara Astaroth's grand mother, Sequined Sadist's sister, Dark Teacher of Lucifer, Creator of Idea of Evil, Mother of all Pure-Blooded Devils and demons, Master of Moloch and the Mother of all Evil and Sin in reality. She is primarily known as the Supreme Ruler of Hell, founder and de-facto Ruler of the Dark Empire Triggers Hell, Mother of All Sins, the Mistress of all Evil and demonic forces that existed in general for creating all demons and wraiths scattered across all existence. As such, she is the most powerful demonic force known as well as the second strongest being in reality, behind Sequined herself.
She is one of the four overarching antagonists of all stories alongside Sequined Sadist, Lapis and Idea of Evil, whom are three entities bringing forces of evil to the existence. Infamous for being the central villainous figure of millions of otherwordly religions, she is the overarching antagonist of CIS Productions Magic Side as a whole and is directly responsible for Leohart the Prince of Hell's atrocities as well as Idea of Evil and Ara Astaroth's crimes on the Multi-Universe. Aside from the main antagonists of the story, every demonic entity appearing in the storyline was created by her and her empire that stood up for centillion years while her son, Leohart, is currently ruling Hell in her absence. As the source of all demonic and supernatural evil happening in the existence, Ragnarok Iblis is regarded by many religions as the supreme overlord (lady) of the hierarchy of Hell, or alternatively as a living embodiment of evil whose power is second only to that of Sequined Sadist. Although Ragnarok is a deity known by many religions' concept of the Devil, almost all orthodox religions have an evil godlike (or semi-godlike) figure that can be said to be connected to Ragnarok in their mannerism and purpose. Some consider her as a male Fallen Angel who betrayed God and was banished from Paradise, some consider the Devil and Satan are different entities and some consider Ragnarok to be a Goddess of Evil rather than a Devil herself. For living centillion years, countless races portrayed her as malicious entity in their own way, for Ragnarok was the first evil that all existence witnessed.
Due to the long lost past of this entity, Ragnarok is said to be older than Sequined Sadist, the first Supreme Goddess of the Omniverse who created the first form of life in the existence. Without her father and her mother being written in the genealogies, neither having beginning of her days nor end of her life, Ragnarok, like Sequined is eternal and infinity for being the two first life forms of the existence. And like the former, Ragnarok is said to have no beginning and no ending, and that she wil exist forever due to the role as the Goddess of Evil, whose exist to keep balance between life and death, and good and evil. Because of that, they can be considered as sisters but are not related by blood, only by role and purpose. However, just like her counterpart, Ragnarok is selfish being who simply doesn't care about her duty to keep balance and abuses of her power to conquer her own needs and desires, without caring about the damage she causes to the good side (Sequined is also far from saint for doing the same). Due to her role as the Goddess of Evil, Ragnarok declared herself as a Devil, the polar opposite of Goddess as she considered it to be a "pure" term for someone so wicked like her. As the root of all evil, she is a necessary Supreme Goddess (who later renamed herself as a Supreme Devil) to keep the system of life and death working, otherwise, without death and evil, life and creation would explode due to overpopulation and lfie would become meaningless since no one would enjoy the few years of life, turning everyone into mindless puppets without purpose on life.
When everything began, Ragnarok was a bodiless entity who travelled across the empty void for countless eons... by a mere request, Ragnarok and Sequined joined forces to create something that could shake their world and escape from that lack of experience and "fun". Together, the two created the first Omniverse which was filled with trillions and trillions of universes, a proper place the two could exercise their power and authority. Over the centuries, the two apparently worked well together by creating mortals and keeping balance of good and evil, however, when Ragnarok realized she could have everything for herself, she attempted to kill Sequined as only her could wipe out a Supreme Goddess. After a battle that lasted for 2 years and ended in the destruction of 940 universes, Ragnarok lost for fighting on Sequined's territory, a omniverse full of life and creation. Sequined then banished Ragnarok from her omniverse while claiming she can be the good and evil at the same time; that was the first step of Sequined into the path of villainy. After she was banished, Ragnarok created an universe called Hell, a place where she could reign according to her own image. While not big enough to be compared to an omniverse, the universe of Hell was on the size of the current Paradise and had infinite borders of space and time. After creating it, she created 8 floors of Hellish fire, vulcanos, pits of magma, dead florest, countless caves of torture, mountains made of flesh; everything that could turn that place into the true scenario of evil. Needing to find "friends", Ragnarok impregnated herself with her own power and gave birth to the first demon, whom later reproduced assexually, thousand years later, Hell had an army of bilions demons, working to build that place, the universe that would later become the capital of her own empire.
Millions years later, she became a empty person without any emotions. She became bored of living as nothing good was happening. Her omniscience, as well as her immortality became a curse for her, mainly for knowing what was going to happen in the next minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. Feeling that things couldn't continue like this, she went to Sequined's omniverse and spied into the normal lives of all living beings there: their lives, their works, their relationships, their emotions and their world. Interested in their method of living, Ragnarok assumed the form of a human for the first time and entered their world to become a "normal person". Assuming form a child from a kind and gentle couple, Ragnarok used her talents and powers to become a brilliant girl. In the hidden village that inherited the blood of Sequined's DNA, her skills and excellence exceeded her contemporaries. Her control over god-energy was even better than the adults. Only the elders and teachers of the village appointed herself as the next Sub-Goddess of Sequned. Moreover, it was not just that. Linguistics, arithmetic, sports, Ragnarok had made extraordinary achievements in every field. After being treated with compassion and love by many, Ragnarok began to form feelings for mortals and life itself, something that totally different from her purpose.
And so Ragnarok spent those days without being suspected by anyone to be a decvil. With rigorous but gentle parents, respectable teachers, and fellow students who shared her enthusiasm, under all of these conditions, she grew up. But just as she was ten years old, another misfortunate event struck. Her mother suffered from a lung disease and passed away. Although she lived in a village of gods, it was impossible to resurrect the dead. The villagers mourned for her passing as they offered their condolences. They held compassion to Ragnarok's father, who had lost his partner at a young age. The death of the mother who gave "birth" and raised "her" gave Ragnarok an unparalleled sense of loss. However, at the same time, what Ragnarok remembered most was the first time experiencing the supreme sense of intoxication over the loss of human life. Experiencing that feeling, Ragnarok felt sorrow and despair for the first time, and that caused her feel joy and pleasure for the first time in her entire life... something that could shake her world; the feeling of losing someone she loved dearly, the negative emotions that can change the course of her life and the despair that lead people to do the unknown not even she can predict. Witnessing that, Ragnarok became a complete sadomasoquist who would later become friends with gods, mortals and demons just so she could kill them and experience the joy of sadness and depression, as well as feeling the happiness for not foreseeing the future.
In the current years, Ragnarok is a self-declared Supreme Pure-Blooded Devil who changed her title as "Goddess" for being a title that could push people away from her (mainly demons and other devils). In the story of CIS Productions, she is the overarching antagonist of LOTM: Shadows Within Shadows, the true main antagonist of LOTM: Sword of Kings' Magic Side (alongside Leohart the Prince of Hell - Bigger Bad, Ara Astaroth - Big Bad, and Vira Hermes - the Heavy), the primary antagonist of the spin-off LOTM: Sword of Kings - Rise of Fire, the ovearching antagonist of LOTM: Destiny and LOTM: The Phoenix on the Sword as a whole. She is set to return in LOTM: Sword of Kings AA Final - Eckidina Arc: Madness Sub Arc as the hidden overarching antagonist behind Leohart the Prince of Hell's actions while Idea of Evil is directly responsible for Ara Astaroth's moves. In LOTM: Los Reina de Corazónes, she is off-screen Greater-Scope Villain who is mostly busy fighting Sequined Sadist in her own omniverse, without being able to interfere but has her own hands in the Revelation of Qliphoth's rise to power in Paradise. Due to her power and title as the Goddess of Evil, she is considered the second strongest character of the story (with the first being Sequined and third being Spectra) and the strongest female antagonist from the Magic Side (as the most powerful member of Balam Alliance as a whole).
Ragnarok, despite her sadomasoquist tendencies, is actually a beautiful Devil who can took a country by storm with her extravagant tastes and cheerful charisma, and later an entire planet in a matter of years without using any powers of hyponistism. Ragnarok's personality and mannerisms tend to be very erratic and unstable; she claims that her high level of intelligence makes her bored of even her own personality. Her boredom is interrelated with her fascination with sadness, sorrow despair and human emotions that can reveal the true nature of living beings, as she believes it is the only emotion worth having. Her motives center around causing despair either in others or herself. Due to this, Ragnarok is willing to do anything to bring about despair, from conquering planets to cause despair in other people (rather than giving them a quick death like she was suppose to) to killing her friends and loved ones to feel her heart and emotions breaking. In overall terms of personality, she is an incredibly unpredictable, treacherous and pitiless sadomasoquist by nature, and cares nothing more than to create despair and misery towards other people. However, Ragnarok is not a complete crazy woman, but a charismatic, clean and soft person who can easily seduce men and women just with personality, causing millions to follow her just by her words. Unlike Sequined who is more aggressive and loses her cool more often (and almost has no charm as a woman), Ragnarok is known for having nerves of steel and never shows signals of hatred or anger, except for happiness (for feeling despair) and sorrow (for obvious reasons).
Ragnarok thrives on corruption and sin and has made it her purpose to plague all intelligent life form - Sequined and Spectra's favoured creation - by twisting mortal minds with temptation so they can commit crimes which will end in despair, just so she can watch mortals suffering while she grows strong enough to defy Sequined once again. As a Supreme Goddess and Ruler of Hell, she can never die and is currently imprisioned in the Prison of Paradise alongside Sequined Sadist and Idea of Evil, where they will be kept for all eternity for their crimes. However, their legacy continue alive through their minions, whom continue to plague the existence in all timelines and univeres.
She is an OC character created by Prime ShockWaveTX.
Religion Base Information
"A God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell — mouths mercy, and invented hell — mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!"
A figure known as "the satan" first appears in the Tanakh as a heavenly prosecutor, a member of the sons of God subordinate to Yahweh, who prosecutes the nation of Judah in the heavenly court and tests the loyalty of Yahweh's followers by forcing them to suffer. During the intertestamental period, possibly due to influence from the Zoroastrian figure of Angra Mainyu, the satan developed into a malevolent entity with abhorrent qualities in dualistic opposition to God. In the apocryphal Book of Jubilees, Yahweh grants the satan (referred to as Mastema) authority over a group of fallen angels to tempt humans to sin and punish them. In the Synoptic Gospels, Satan tempts Jesus in the desert and is identified as the cause of illness and temptation. In the Book of Revelation, Satan appears as a Great Red Dragon, who is defeated by Michael the Archangel and cast down from Heaven. He is later bound for one thousand years, but is briefly set free before being ultimately defeated and cast into the Lake of Fire.In Christianity, Satan is also known as the Devil and, although the Book of Genesis does not mention him, he is often identified as the serpent in the Garden of Eden. In medieval times, Satan played a minimal role in Christian theology and was used as a comic relief figure in mystery plays. During the early modern period, Satan's significance greatly increased as beliefs such as demonic possession and witchcraft became more prevalent. During the Age of Enlightenment, belief in the existence of Satan became harshly criticized. Nonetheless, belief in Satan has persisted, particularly in the Americas. In the Quran, Shaitan, also known as Iblis, is an entity made of fire who was cast out of Heaven because he refused to bow before the newly-created Adam and incites humans and jinn to sin by infecting their minds with waswās ("evil suggestions"). Although Satan is generally viewed as evil, some groups have very different beliefs.
In Theistic Satanism, Satan is considered a deity who is either worshipped or revered. In LaVeyan Satanism, Satan is a symbol of virtuous characteristics and liberty. Satan's appearance is never described in the Bible, but, since the ninth century, he has often been shown in Christian art with horns, cloven hooves, unusually hairy legs, and a tail, often naked and holding a pitchfork. These are an amalgam of traits derived from various pagan deities, including Pan, Poseidon, and Bes. Satan appears frequently in Christian literature, most notably in Dante Alighieri's Inferno, variants of the Faust legend, John Milton's Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, and the poems of William Blake. He continues to appear in film, television, and music.
"As flies to wanton boys are we to the the Devil. He kill us for his sport."
Design and Appearance
Ragnarok is probably the best example of a character who suffered a huge change in her design and appearance in the story alongside Vira Hermes. Both became beautiful women from monster and demonic entities. But in Ragnarok's case, it was because of the setting and correction in the plot. The Devil was suppose to be the counterpart of Spectra and Sequined, whom are considered the very concept of beauty, and with that in mind, the Devil was suppose to be ugly and monstruous. However, the correction in the story allowed the writers to replace the monstrous form to a more human appearance and added more complex and deep history to the character, now Sequined and Ragnarok are two beauties but their personality still the same, which added two beautiful monsters to the story while Spectra represents male beauty in both body and mind.
It also adds the concept of Female Are Always the Worse of the Species.
Following the real-life exampes, the Devil has been perceived in a variety of ways throughout history: a red-skinned man with horns and a pitchfork, a towering horned demon and a man with the legs of a goat and a serpent's tail, to name but a few. It could be that the Devi has no "true" form and merely appears in any guise that a human mind imagines him to be. Given that he is temptation incarnate, he would surely take on a more seductive form that is pleasing to the eye. In the story, he was written to be a three meters heigh goat with muscular appearance, goat feet, demonic horns, red eyes, skeletical face and black wings.
The second appearance changed literally everything about him, whom now is "her". As Ragnarok Iblis, she is a tall woman with a voluminous body with white skin, shining red eyes, black long princess hair with an antenna. Due to her beauty, her body is considered to be perfect (mainly for being a Supreme Goddess) and is above the Goddess' standard of beauty. Her breats size are extremely huge but they doesn't seem to be heavy as they apparent (considering her supernatural strength).
In her human form, she is seen more often dressed with a red thin dress, that almost barely covers her body, a red choker and is wearing black sensual thighhighs.
Mythology - RagnarokIn Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle, foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarok (Old Norse Ragnarök, “The Doom of the Gods”) is the name the pre-Christian Norse gave to the end of their mythical cycle, during which the cosmos is destroyed and is subsequently re-created. Ragnarök is an important event in Norse mythology and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory throughout the history of Germanic studies.
The event is attested primarily in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In the Prose Edda and in a single poem in the Poetic Edda, the event is referred to as Ragnarök or Ragnarøkkr (Old Norse; meaning Fate of the Gods and Twilight of the Gods, respectively), a usage popularised by 19th-century composer Richard Wagner with the title of the last of his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas, Götterdämmerung (1876), which is "Twilight of the Gods" in German.Ominous prophecies and dreams had long foretold the downfall of the cosmos and of its gods and goddesses along with it. When the first of these prophesied events came to pass – the beloved god Baldur was killed by Loki and consigned to the underworld – the gods had to face the fact they could no longer escape their tragic destiny. They prepared as well as they could. Odin took a great deal of time and care selecting the ablest human warriors to join him in the final battle against the world-devouring giants. But, deep down, they knew that all of their desperate actions were in vain.
In Midgard, the realm of human civilization, people abandoned their traditional ways, disregarded the bonds of kinship, and sank into a wayward, listless nihilism. The gods weren’t exactly innocent of these same charges, however. They had broken oaths and fallen short of their expectations of one another on many occasions. (See, for example, The Fortification of Asgard and The Binding of Fenrir.) Three winters came in a row with no summer in between, a plodding, devastating season of darkness and frigidity which the prophecies had called the Fimbulwinter (“The Great Winter”).
At last, the pseudo-god Loki and his son, the dreaded wolf Fenrir, who had both been chained up to prevent them from wreaking further destruction in the Nine Worlds, broke free of their fetters and set about doing precisely what the gods who had imprisoned them had feared. Yggdrasil, the great world-tree that holds the Nine Worlds in its branches and roots, began to tremble.The far-seeing Heimdall, the watchman of the gods’ fortress, Asgard, was the first to spy a vast army of giants headed for the celestial stronghold. Among the gruesome mass was the gods’ fickle friend, Loki, at the helm of the ship Naglfar (“Ship of the Dead”). Heimdall sounded his horn Gjallarhorn (“Resounding Horn”) to alert the gods, who were no doubt alarmed and despairing.
The giants set about destroying the abode of the gods and the entire cosmos along with it. Fenrir, the great wolf, ran across the land with his lower jaw on the ground and his upper jaw in the sky, consuming everything in between. Even the sun itself was dragged from its height and into the beast’s stomach. Surt, a giant bearing a flaming sword, swept across the earth and left nothing but an inferno in his wake.
But, like the heroes of a Greek tragedy, the gods fought valiantly to the end. Thor and the sea serpent Jormungand slew each other, as did Surt and the god Freyr, and likewise Heimdall and Loki. Odin and Tyr both fell to Fenrir (also called “Garmr” in some texts), who was then killed by Vidar, Odin’s son and avenger.
At last, in the ultimate reversal of the original process of creation, the ravaged land sank back into the sea and vanished below the waves. The perfect darkness and silence of the anti-cosmic void, Ginnungagap, reigned once more.
But this age of death and repose did not last forever. Soon the earth was once again raised from the ocean. Baldur returned from the underworld, and the gladdened land became more lush and fruitful than it had been since it was created the previous time. A new human pair, Lif and Lifthrasir, the equivalents of Ask and Embla in the Norse creation narrative, awakened in the green world. The gods, too, returned and resumed their merrymaking.
Theology - IblisIblīs is the Islamic equivalent of the Christian Satan. Iblis was cast out of heaven by God after he refused to prostrate himself before Adam. Although Iblis resembles the Christian notion of Satan, there is no direct correlation. In respect of their disobedience to God the motivation of Iblis and that of the Christian Satan differ, and unlike the Christian notion of Satan there is no mention of Iblis trying to take God's throne. Also, given the strict monotheism of Islam, Iblis is not considered the adversary of God with a duel between God and another entity regarded as impossible. The enmity of Iblis applies just to God's creation. Iblis only has the power God granted him after his request for permission to tempt humans away from God's path. He is not the cause of evil, but takes advantage of the inclination of humans to be self-centered. Furthermore, the transformation of Iblis from angelic into demonic is a reminder of God's capacity to reverse injustice even on an ontological level. It is both a warning and a reminder because the special gifts given by God can also be taken away by him.
Iblis was once an Archangel and God's dearest creature. He was the teacher of the other angels, and God gave him authority over the lower heavens. When the jinn increasingly caused corruption on earth, God sent him with an army of angels to battle the jinn and they drove them into the mountains. Iblis felt superior to any other creature, especially since he was, unlike the other angels, created from fire. Then God created Adam and commanded the angels to prostrate before him, Iblis felt humiliated, and refused to accept the superiority of man, who was, according to Iblis, just another fallible entity, who would corrupt God's earth, like the jinn he just defeated before, while he would praise God's glory day and night. Therefore he was cast out of heaven, but God allows him to proof Iblis objection concerning humanity by tempting them into sin, and gave him a chance to redeem himself. Thus although Iblis's pride lost him his position in heaven, he remained part of God's plan.Once the angels battled the earthen jinn and took prisoners. One of these was Iblis, who grew up among the angels in heaven, and because of his piety was elevated to their rank. When God ordered the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam, Iblis abused his free-will and refused haughtily, considering himself superior because of his physical nature constituted of fire and not of clay. Therefore he was damned to hell but was given respite until the Day of Judgment.
Although the Serpent is not mentioned in the Qur'an, Qur'anic commentaries as well as the Stories of the Prophets added the serpent borrowed from Gnostic and Jewish oral tradition circulating in the Arabian Peninsula. Iblis tries to enter the abode of Adam, but the angelic guardian keeps him away. Then Iblis invents a plan to trick the guardian. He approaches a peacock and tells him that all creatures will die and the peacock's beauty will perish. But if he gets the fruit of eternity, every creature will last forever. Therefore, the peacock convinces the serpent to slip Iblis into the Garden, by carrying him in his mouth. In the Garden, Iblis speaks through the serpent to Adam and Eve, and tricks them into eating from the forbidden tree. Modern Muslims accuse the Yazidis of devil-worship for venerating the peacock. Illustrations of Iblis in Islamic paintings often depict him black-faced, a feature which would later symbolize any Satanic figure or heretic, and with a black body, symbolizing his corrupted nature. Another common depiction shows Iblis wearing special headcovering, clearly different from the traditional Islamic turban. In one painting however, Iblis wears a traditional Islamic headcovering. The turban probably refers to a narration of Iblis' fall: there he wore a turban, then he was sent down from heaven.
Introduction - Basic InformationRagnarok was the first character of the story to be concepted and created by the writers since the history would always involve demonic contents from theology and mythology. In a way, the Devil was made with the solo purpose og being a off-screen villain who was defeated quintilion years ago and would appear in the spin-off Rise of Fire as the main antagonist alongside Lucifer. Despite being the first character made, she lacked background and had a personaity of pure evil (taking the way how Bibly describe him) persona like other past villains mentioned in LOTM: Sword of Kings - Old and New Legends Concept.
Although the Devil is present in some form in many religions and can be compared to some mythological gods, he’s arguably best known for his role in Christianity. In modern biblical translations, the Devil is the adversary of God and God’s people. It’s commonly thought that the Devil first showed up in the Bible in the book of Genesis as the serpent who convinced Eve—who then convinced Adam—to eat forbidden fruit from the “tree of the knowledge” in the Garden of Eden. As the story goes, after Eve fell for the Devil’s conniving ways, she and Adam were banished from the Garden of Eden and doomed to mortality. Many Christians believe the Devil was once a beautiful angel named Lucifer who defied God and fell from grace. This assumption is often based the book of Isaiah in the Bible which says, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations.”
Ragnarok Iblis, but widely known as the Devil, is an demonic entity that appears in all religions with alternatives names and histories that seduces mortals into sin or falsehood. In Christianity and Islam, she is usually seen as a fallen angel, or a jinni, who used to possess great piety and beauty, but rebelled against God, who nevertheless allows him temporary power over the fallen world and a host of demons. In Judaism, Satan is typically regarded as a metaphor for the yetzer hara, or "evil inclination", or as an agent subservient to God. Ragnarok is considered a deity who is either worshipped or revered. In some religions,she is a symbol of virtuous characteristics and liberty. Satan's appearance is never described in the Bible, but, since the ninth century, she has often been shown in Christian art with horns, cloven hooves, unusually hairy legs, and a tail, often naked and holding a pitchfork. These are an amalgam of traits derived from various pagan deities, including Pan, Poseidon, and Bes. The truth, however is very different, she is in fact a beautiful mature woman who has the perfection of a Goddess of Beauty.
Nature of Kabbalah & Qliphoth - Knowledge
"All ends in obliteration—love in hatred, life in death, and light in empty darkness. The world is a mad design, written in the dust of the vast, hollow emptiness. It was dust, is dust, and always will be dust. Use your knowledge to annihilate the world! Accelerate the cycle."
Life - Sephiroth
DaathDaath is traditionally translated as ‘Knowledge’ and often called a Pseudo-Sephira or the 11th Sephira. Daath emerges from the union of Chokmah and Binah; the Zohar therefore quotes Daath as the “son of wisdom and intelligence” (Sohar III. fol. 291) who is called Knowledge or Insight (ref. Franck, A.; o.A. (1844); p. 137). Daath is described as a Pseudo-Sephira because at its position in the Etz Chiim no original center of divine power is located. However, Daath is the secret entrance and exit point for the influence of the Sephiroth of the First Triad to manifest in creation. Similarly Daath also is an exit and entrance point on the dark side of the tree that leads down to or up from Yeso'''''.
Properly, Da'at is not a sefirah, but rather is all ten sefirot united as one. Nevertheless- Da'at is sometimes counted as a sefirah instead of Keter, from the perspective of finite creation, using Da'at to represent the "reflection of" (the "inner dimension" of) the infinity of Keter. Thus Da'at appears in the configuration of the sefirot along the middle axis, directly beneath Keter. It corresponds to the image of God. Alternate countings of the sefirot produce 10 powers ("10 and not 9, 10 and not 11" - Sefer Yetzirah) by either including Keter or Da'at. In the scheme of Moses ben Jacob Cordovero, Da'at is omitted, while in the scheme of Isaac Luria, Keter (Will) is omitted. Cordovero describes the sefirot as one light in ten vessels. Luria follows this, but lists sefirot beginning with Chokhmah (Wisdom) to describe their outer dimensions.
Death - Qlipha
BelialThe knowledge of Daath is a door that leads from the First Triad to the Second and Third and equally from the light side to the dark side of the tree. The Qliphoth of Daath is blocking passage through this door by creating the notion of knowledge as an end in itself. When curiosity changes to greed for knowledge one loses the actual intent of one’s (spiritual) journey and gets caught in an ivory tower of (secret) information.
The Qliphoth of Daath is knowledge that isn’t brought to or re-unified with life. At the same time the Qliphoth of Daath can take the opposite shape and present itself in the contempt and demise of knowledge. Either way, the Qliphoth of Daath is taking the most precious value from knowledge - making it a door and passage from one perspective and state of being to another. The Qliphoth of Daath is called Belial or ‘Belial‘ which can be translated as ‘TheWorthless Ones’ (german, ‘Die Wertlosen’).
Belial" is applied to ideas, words, and counsel, to calamitous circumstances, and most frequently, to worthless men of the lowest sort, such as men who would induce worship of other gods; those of Benjamin who committed the sex crime at Gibeah; the wicked sons of Eli; insolent Nabal; opposers of God’s anointed, David; Rehoboam's unsteady associates; Jezebel's conspirators against Naboth; and men in general who stir up contention. Indicating that the enemy power would no longer interfere with the carrying out of true worship by his people in their land, YHWH declared through his prophet: "No more will any worthless person pass again through you. In his entirety he will certainly be cut off."
Lore - Mother of All Sin
The end of times is coming. Or so I was lead to believe. I thought I was dreaming and I sincerely hope I was, but there's something about what he said that…seems so real to me. In dreams we usually wake up when we're supposed to feel or experience something, and sometimes we try with all our might to wake up when things begin to frighten us. I felt something when I was down there with him and I could not, for the life of me, wake up.
I also learned something. As much as we of the human species try to deny its presence and existence in our logical, scientific world, evil does exist. It isn't just a chemical imbalance or a culmination of fear, hatred and rage throughout one's lifetime. It’s also a dark invitation, an invitation that summons him to hearts and minds in which he poisons that every evil ever known to us stems from. Once again, I could very well be telling a fairy tale, but if he is who he said he was then we need to be afraid. We need to be deathly afraid.
I suffer from chronic headaches, a condition I was born with. My favorite remedy for these sudden pangs of throbbing pain is to take two painkillers, and sleep. Lately, my headaches had become a little more severe and the usual dosage of pills wasn't working anymore. At work one day I developed the worst headache I ever had. I needed my pills, but I couldn't sleep until I got home. I decided that I couldn't wait and decided to take them just as soon as my shift ended. And then, for some reason, I felt the need to take a third pain killer. I took them all and began to walk home for the day, something that I always do.
As I began my walk, everything seemed to be in its rightful order as I passed by familiar buildings and surroundings. But as I kept going I noticed something unsettling. I had been in my neighborhood as little as five minutes ago, but now I was beginning to approach unfamiliar territory. I thought the pills had made me drowsy and I had made a wrong turn to the outskirts of town. I turned around to retrace my steps when I discovered that everything was gone and I was in the middle of a large field with a lone road. At the end of the road, a few yards from where I stood, was an old house. It was getting dark outside.
At this point I began to panic. I had no idea where I was or how and why I had gotten there. I tried to figure out where I was with my phone, but my phone told me I was back home where I was a few minutes before. I tried to call my house, but I could not receive a signal, all I could hear was static. I turned around and looked at the house. As the sun went down I realized that if I was going to find out how to get back, I was going to need to see if anybody was home.I knocked on the door repeatedly, but of course nobody answered me. I rang the doorbell. I could hear the bell echo through the old building. Still nothing. Soon after, I began to hear a faint whispering sound. I looked around to see what was going on, but it had all of a sudden become pitch black outside. I could see nothing, but the whispering intensified. The wind blew and I felt a frozen chill. By this point I was scared beyond belief. I had to escape the noise and the cold. Without any other options, I opened the front door and let myself in.
The house was just as dark as the world outside, and although my eyes quickly adjusted to the dark that surrounded me, I could not make out anything in the interior. Black shapes surrounded me, possibly furniture I thought. I took a couple of steps. The floorboards creaked as I walked through a large empty hallway. Doors lined the hallway on both sides. I got out my cell phone and used its light to examine a large, black door. I opened it slowly and discovered a brick wall on the other side. The door led to nowhere. I found this incredibly strange and checked the next door. It led to an empty room, occupied only by dark. As I tried all the doors and examined their destinations, the house did not stir once. I heard only my heavy breathing and my own footsteps. The air had become extremely cold and as I shivered, I began to consider turning back. I was wasting my time; I should have just left the house and ran down the road, I could have received help. But I couldn't resist the urge to explore this mystery house further.
I continued to walk down the great hall for a long period of time. I became confused. This was by no means a large house. How could it possibly have a hallway this long? As I pondered the absurdity of the hallway, I finally heard something. The whispering had returned. It had stopped when I entered the threshold of the house. But now it sounded like it was distant. It was as if whatever was whispering was standing at the very end of the hallway, where I was but mere minutes before. It sounded vaguely human. I finally broke the silence and asked who was there. And then it happened.The noise began to move down the hallway. As it approached it grew louder and more intense. I stood for a moment and listened as it approached. Then I saw eyes of the darkest red, eyes that pierced the darkness and seemed to stare into my very soul. I then heard louder noises: incessant screaming and screeching sounds I have never heard before. This jolted me from my trance and I began to run. I had to get away from this…thing. I ran and I ran, but the sounds and the eyes followed me. I could smell the horrific odors of rotting flesh and noxious fumes and the ground beneath me felt wetter and wetter. Then I could smell the scent of blood. The hallway had been soaked in human blood.
I don’t know how long I ran. The hallway just never seemed to end. It stretched for what felt like miles as I ran for my life. I never seemed to tire. I just kept running away from a creature of unknown horribleness down a pitch-dark hallway that reeked of death. I thought for a moment that I must have been dreaming. I tried with all my might to wake up, but I could not. After my failed attempts, my eyes caught sight of another form ahead of me. It was another door.
I knew that if I was going to have any chance of surviving, I had to go through that door. Whatever my pursuer was, I knew it would surely kill me. As I got closer and closer to the door, I could see the foul creature's radiant eyes fixed on me. The noises were louder than ever. Crying and yelling and screaming and horrific sounds of torture and death, of madness and destruction along with all that goes with it. I was in a desperate struggle to keep the unknown terrors of death at bay.
The door was within reach. I grabbed the cold, hard knob. As I did this, thoughts raced through my mind. Where was I? Was I dead? Was I in purgatory? Where does this door go? Is it another dead end? More darkness? Or something much, much worse? I had no other choice. I opened the door and ran through the threshold.
I once again found myself in the familiar shroud of darkness. But I wasn't running anymore, now I was falling. Falling through a dark, silent abyss. I lost my pursuer, but I feared that I was going to face something much worse. I screamed and I yelled for someone, anyone to help me. But I heard nothing. I just fell. I fell for what seemed like ages, too long for any ordinary pit. Where was I? I still don't know.
I continued to plummet and I anticipated my impending death. But no death came. Instead, the noise returned. The noise of unspeakable terrors rang in my ears and I began to write as I fell, tortured by the sounds of agony and despair. But then the noise subsided. And then I saw him.Floating in the darkness in front of me was the image of a creature so disfigured, so vile and so utterly repulsive that to describe the details of his rotted visage would shock and disgust you to the very bone. This gaunt, rotted face of wretchedness had the same piercing red eyes of the creature that stalked me in the dead of night just moments before. It looked at me and breathed heavily. Smoke rose from its thin nostrils and the smell of death permeated the void. I was too terrified by his face that I didn't notice right away that I had suddenly stopped falling. I was suspended in mid-air, just yards away from his horrifying features. I could not move, something held me in place. Finally, after staring at me with his pulsating, burning eyes, he spoke:
“It seems you've stumbled upon a most horrific fate. You are now in the presence of he who speaks but is never heard. He who knows but is never felt. He who waits for the destruction of man. Below me is the darkness of mankind, the source from which I have corrupted the race of men who have sought my aid for countless ages. You have discovered my den of fear not by accident, but by necessity. You have been chosen for a very specific purpose. I have led you down here, to the very brink of all that never was to deliver upon you a most important task.”
His harsh, cold, garbled voice echoed through the darkness. Every word brought on the stench of eons. I finally found my voice, and I asked of him:
“What are you? What do you want with me? This can't be real…"
“Oh, but it is” he replied. “I am but an ancient entity. I have been here in this plane of existence for longer than your feeble human mind can comprehend. I wait here in the darkness and when man invites me into his world, I enter in spirit. I whisper the words of fear and doubt into their minds and poison them slowly with jealousy, anger and fear. Every act of vengeance and hatred ever known has been my work. But now, I'm stuck in here because of that disgusting mortal. And now I have chosen you to deliver my final message.”
“What message? What are you talking about?”
“The end of times is coming. I have set a movement in motion that will destroy your world and everything in it. From this inferno will arise a new age of darkness in which I can call home and finally be free.”
“What does this have to do with me?”
“In your waking sleep I have lured you here to my dark dominion. In mere moments I shall return you to your comfortable world of the light. When you return you shall spread my message throughout your broad lands. I wish for them all to know the true power of Ragnarok, the Devil.”
Before I could say another word, a pale, disgusting hand floated out of the abyss and grabbed me. As its grip tightened I head the horrific noises again. The wretched appendage held me over a large vortex and dropped me inside. I fell into a bright light and then darkness once more. But then, I finally awoke.
I woke up with the bottle of pills still in my hand. I was still at work. I had never left. Still trembling by the shock of my experience, I gathered my things and left. Sure enough, my walk went as planned and I returned home. I checked my pill bottle for side effects relating to night terrors and hallucinations, but there were none. I searched the Internet for any clue for “Ragnarok, the Devil". But I found nothing. I have since given up. I knew that nobody would ever believe me if I told them this story, so I decided to keep my mouth shut on my experience until the time was right for such a discussion.
Ever since that “incident”, I’ve had a lot of questions. Questions that I know will never be answered. The biggest question I’ve had since then is: “Was he telling the truth? Is the end really coming?” I thought about it a lot. It didn't seem possible. But I had been dreaming. I had been asleep. Yet I could not and did not wake up from this "dream". Perhaps I really did come face to face with something ancient, with something diabolical.
I guess I won’t know until it happens. One thing I do know is that if it happens, the world will finally know the power of Ragnarok, the Devil.

"Other stories tell how I eat innocent newborns, how I'm ten feet tall, how I breathe fire and have great dragon wings. None of those are wholly accurate. I don't have dragon wings, I don't breathe fire and I've never eaten a newborn that didn't have it coming. My name is Ragnarok. Also known as Satan and the Devil by your race. What's yours?"
Since her birth, Ragnaro was a natural genius even without her omniscience and showed that she was patient, always well-humored, vastly intelligent, and an incredible actor as she could manipulate the entire races according to her desire. As the Devil of Hell, she obviously seals pacts with mortals in exchange of something they love dearly. However, the deals that she makes usually backfire on the victim, though Ragnarok is questionably dishonest and underhanded, as she does give them exactly what they promised, even though it is not what her victims had in mind. In interacting with others, she is typically solemn, critical, patronizing, superficially kind, and generally negative about their ways of speaking and dressing but above she does that because she wants people to be more sophisticated and wise by "repairing" the surface of they personalities. She is skilled at reading the motives of others, assisting in her lies and manipulations to her victims throughout history. As opposed to the Sequined who twist the good of religion, Ragnarok prefers the more negative aspects of her faith and religion such as sin and eternal damnation rather than virtues of forgiveness and mercy.
Ragnarok presents a calm and understandable behavior amid the disorders diagnosed by her servants, showing patience and composure according to her appearance, something totally different from Sequined Sadist who has no patience and absolutely hates being next to her worshippers. The words expressed by the devil denote calm, comforting their listeners and even persuading her possible victims. Ragnarok was also known to loath ostentation and luxury. However, while omniscience would be considered a bless for mortals, she considered her omniscience as a curse since she has complete understanding of anything and everything. Everything that will happen and everything that exist.
An irreconcilable problem with being 'all-knowing' as stated by Ragnarok, is that you cannot know whether or not you know everything, simply because you may not know what you don't know. For example, if one was to be omniscient, and therefore 'knows' that they were the one that knows the most about quantum physics, they would have no source to check against as to whether or not they truly know everything about that subject because some of the topics they "know" about aren't discovered yet and likewise they don't know what hasn't be discovered that they might not know about. As a result, the only tangible knowledge that you have as an omniscient being would be true appreciation of your ignorance, as you would have no higher knowledge to check your facts with. And due to her knowledge, she endured to not go mad and kill herself. Ragnarok's true personality is very apathetic and easily bored to an unhealthy and abnormal degree. Because of this, her behavior and mannerisms tended to be extremely erratic and unstable by her own autonomous design; keeping up one mood for too long bores her, which causes her to often switch between different personas to keep changing. Ragnarok's "moods" included (but were not limited to) to sickening cuteness, severe depression, clinical sophistication, boisterous vulgarity, eerie stoicism, and haughty superiority. She switched between "moods" regularly, often imitating other mortals' expressions, which made for a highly unsettling conversation with people. Bored of living, she wanted to join the mortals in their own daily lives.
When she took form of a human child, Ragnarok discovered the feeling of despair and gained a morbid fascination with death and derived a sadistic sense of pleasure watching the suffering and mourning of others. However, she was also clever enough to understand that such feelings would isolate herself in her community, so she resolved to hide these feelings. However, after her foster mother died she lost this social restraint holding herself back and chose to relish rampantly in her sadistic tendencies. Later, she discovered the suffering of others, including her own, was something new she never experienced before, a feeling that lead people to do the unknown, something that she could not foresee. Ragnarok deeply obsessed with despair and sorrow, having found despair to be the most (and possibly the only) enjoyable emotion for her, whether it be inflicting despair unto others, or suffering from despair wholeheartedly.
As the devil she is suppose to be, she is highly intelligent, cunning and extremely manipulative, violent and cruel without remorse. She was a highly calm individual, being both caring but abusive to everyone around her. She manipulated people into falling madly in love with her and used their weaknesses, their despair, against them. Things like hope, peace, and happiness disgusted her, but she sometimes gave hope to others, only to turn it into despair later, all to break them and expose their dark nature to lead them into destruction so she can watch something she cannot foresee.
She often manipulated people into doing bad things instead of directly doing them herself, and then had a habit of blaming these manipulated people and claiming it wasn't her fault, as a part of proving her point that despair and evil exists in everyone and that hope and peace will naturally lose to that despair. While she is very skilled, Ragnarok can also lie and cheat to further her own goals, even if it's hypocritical and goes against her beliefs. It should be noted that even though she claims despair and panic (fear) is the great unknown, in the end the road of despair went exactly the way she had planned.
Due to her urge to inflict pain and suffering in other people in order to unleash their evil nature, Ragnarok has no qualms killing and sacrificing basically anybody to achieve her goals, including anyone she presumably actually cares or loves about. This includes her own race and due to her extraordinary charisma, many of them such as the aforementioned demons turn out to be willing sacrifices for her. Those who oppose her or the ones that she seeks to remove for her goals receive much worse fates and are more often than not killed or manipulated into joining her instantly as soon as they were found out. Ragnarok's mindset has been described as one not just sinister and cruel but rather as something that could only be classified as abnormal. Se retorts that she is in fact very ordinary in the sense thatshe is merely to doing everything in her power for the sake of her goals, making herself look like she is a mere demon doing things to build a social circle in life. What separates herself from others is her lack of ethnics and morals when pursuing her wishes.
While being a devil and an evil-made being Rangartok is, in fact, capable of affection like mortals (but choose to do evil things because the suffering, pain and death of mortals is the only thing that can take her out of her boredom); however, this only fuels her depravity and brutality. Because hurting people close to her will cause her greater despair and suffering, she tends to deal with them in more personal ways, implying sadomasoquist tendencies as she feels pleasure from suffering but also inflicting despair and pain on other people.
In cases, she make friends just so she can watch their face twisted in panic and despair for being betrayed by someone so trustful. The more she loves someone, the more she wants to treasure and delight in their despair, but also at the same time, loves feeling the despair she will feel when she kill her loved ones, making her pain in double-joy induced pain. Following the reveal of her omniscience that Ragnarok's obsessions are ironically fueled by her great ability to read, predict and empathize with people around her. She most likely understands the consequences of her actions and the exact level of suffering her plans will inflict, but this only encourages her by filling her with despair over her own monstrous acts. As a result of this, Ragnarok actually manages to escape classification as a true sociopath, since they are defined by a complete inability to form emotional connections with others. She is not a psychopath and has no mental illiness known, she is 100% sane and loves doing evil and inflicting despair on people not because of her role, but because this is the only emotion she can enjoy and hold dearly. As stated by her, she could easily become a good person and be a gentle woman with a pure heart, but her omniscience and age of centillions broke all her morals and ethics and has no intentions to embrace such disgusting and inferior feelings she can easily predict like love, peace, harmony and friendship.
As Queen of Hell, Ragnarok devoted most of her time to study and meditation, often in the ancient Devl shrine situated beneath the Hell Imperial Palace. During that time, she began to curse her own immortality as she had a great excitment to meet the feeling of death since she lived for countless gogool years. Wishing to die for eternity, Ragnarok launched numerous inquiries into the topic of death about Gods. One of the most notorious of these was trying to steal the Sword of Kings; an attempt to unlock the secrets of immortality through demonic alchemy, but the project ended in failure. However, Ragnarok's true goal at that time was ultimately to discover a way to use the power of Sequined Sadist to manipulate the existence itself, and with that power, not only achieve what she termed "mere immortality" but acquire the ability to reshape the omniverse and its people to her satisfaction. Because she lived for centillion years and never knew how exactly she was born alongside Sequined, she came to the conclusion that the existence itself, where she and all other life forms were lviing, was a matrix created by a higher being and was watching them to their own fun. Wanting to kill the creators of that "matrix", she wanted to use the power of the Supreme Goddess to destroy all existence, including all life and creation so she could help the souls of all living beings to awake in the real world, out of the so-called "matrix" she claimed existence to be. And as soon as she woke up, she would kill her own creators to take over their powers and create thousands of other existences in her own image.
To those who had been at her nonexistent mercy, Ragnarok was known to be exceptionally sadisti, and she often took visible pleasure in torturing others. She was similarly quite bloodthirsty as well, and frequently reveled in combat to the point of laughing while she fought or killed. She was also noted for her lack of forgiveness. Leohart who was well known for summarily executing officers who failed him, considered Ragnarok to be even less clement than himself. According to Spectra, the reason Ragnarok left the Mana World relatively untouched during her reign was because she enjoyed tormenting the magician populace with the fact that she could destroy the serene beauty of the dimension at anytime. In spite of her creation and exceptional mastery of the Black Arts, she was no less susceptible to fear, one of the primary emotions of the hellish magician. However, she used her own fear to give her self more induced-despair pleasure rather than suffering from panic and its effects. Everything related to negative emotions, including sorrow, fear, depression, anger, anxiety, despair and even shame were used as fuel for her sadomasoquist tendencies, who apparently were more for joy rather than sexual.
Due to her philosophy, Ragnarok was seemingly unwilling to let anyone else inherit the Triggers Hell in the event of her defeat. Ragnarok seemed to believe that all evil supernatural forces of the existence' s sole purpose was to protect her own life and well-being, that means she wasn't going to let someone else take her title as Ruler of Hell away from her. She believed that Triggers Hell was a failure if it failed to live up to this purpose, and mainly to enjoy the despair her subordinates will feel for being betrayed by their own mother. Even before the formation of the Triggers Hell, Ragnarok had prepared for this fate by formulating a Contingency plan. The Contingency involved luring the Triggers Empire to the Multi-Universe core and destroying it alongside the forces of Hell and all Multi-Universe of Spectra.As the Contingency showed, Ragnarok seemed to be willing to risk the lives of countless subjects to prevent Triggers Hell from outliving her. However, it failed as Leohart the Prince of Hell was chosen to be successor after she was sealed away by ExKrieg alongside Lucifer.
Despite her love of war and despair, Ragnarok express all her feeling in a very calm and soft-spoken method and speaks in a polite and amused tone and always acting affable towards others, such as a pure priestess. However, her true nature is apparent to all, as she openly proclaims her own evil and states that she wants to destruction and slaughter to see wake up the dark nature of living being (much like Akrak Couteau) all the while mocking the righteous beliefs of her enemies as she consider ethic as being just a lie to control the true urges of all civilizations.
Though she admits to being an evil person, Ragnarok sees herself as a normal person and is above good and evil as aforementioned, and is very proud and protective of her individual character, which she defines as her willpower and "soul" for someone like her who is a Supreme Goddess and a Devil for not having soul. However, her "ordinary character" is denied by ExKrieg, who points out her hypocrisy in being someone who proclaims her own ordianary person to seek death, as well as being utterly devoid of any empathy or morality merely for thinking despair is the only emotion inside of people's hearts.
As the Ruler of Hell, Ragnarok is obviously the most brutal character of the entire CIS Productions for commanding a horrible place made to commit evil, bring pain and brutality over damned souls. She ruled Hell for billion years and still torturing the very first souls that arrived in Hell to this day, always reviving them again and again for trillion years to pass judment over those who choose to commit evil, while calling herself as "judge" to clean their sins for all eternity, something very hypocrital from her part. In her hell:
- people are hung by the tongue over bubbling pools of gore;
- blasphemers are stabbed in the eyes with red hot irons;
- clouds of worms trail over the landscape devouring everything in their path;
- demons throwing lesbians and transgender women off cliffes;
- ladies having their eyes burnt out by the souls of their aborted children;
- sinner children writhing like mad dogs and tearing flesh off their own faces and throwing it high into the air;
- motionless worms chewing on rapists eye balls, hearts, hands, and legs
- globes of black flame hang in the air, rising out of the burning pit then falling back in. Each globe contains a single human soul, trapped forever in burning agony;
- in the illusions floor of the underworld, the damned would be trapped in imaginary worlds like in big, decaying cities rife with violence. Demons and lost souls shared houses and would spend all day beating each other, fighting, getting drunk, and robbing one another in the streets. In more extreme versions of these Hells, every single building would be a brothel where patrons were forced to copulate in excrement, while the city burned around them;
- in the 3rd floor, Hell is divided up into two rivers—one of fire and one of ice, and the damned are split between the two. Those in the river of fire also have their entrails pierced by iron hooks, stones smashed in their faces, and their lips cut off with red-hot razors, some of them are also eaten from the inside out by worms. Meanwhile, those in the ice river have their hands and feet cut off and are feasted on by vermin;
- racists people are dropped in a pit full of pitch to suffer for all eternity, while black widow women are chained up in red-hot irons and carted off by abusive angels;
- in the 2nd Floor, people are cooked down to soup in gigantic frying pans, demons with red-hot pitchforks push people off mountains, and surgery-minded devils chop people up into little bits, then magically put them back together to be chopped up again;
- the Acheron of the 6th Floor is sort of hell-within-a-hell. Acheron is a gigantic beast capable of swallowing 9,000 men at a time. Once inside, people who’ve been eaten are then eaten again, this time by thousands of frightened dogs, snakes, rats, and other toothy things, all while being burned and suffocated with sulfur;
- the 1st Flloor of Hell condemned the damned souls to loses the power to feel love, happiness, or anything other than cruelty and misery. Souls will criy out how it would give anything to be able to love again, to witness even one small act of kindness in the whole of Hell. Not only do the damned have to put up with eternal physical misery by walking and seating in floors made of hot iron, they’re cursed with eternal mental misery too;
- Dictators and tyrants are impaled with giant sticks through their anus until the stick pierce their body completely, coming out of their mouths;
- Corrupt politicians and dishonest officials of justice are eternally drowned in pits of money, unable to breath as they bodies burn to ashes from inside of the pit;
- genocidal leaders are forced to be cut in half for days until their bodies are completely cut;
- serial killers are constantly decapited over and over again with knives;
- pedophiles' genitals being burned with fire, murderers women are flogged while naked, and adulterers tied naked togethe;
- and thousands of other methods of torture;
In terms of normal conversation, Ragnarok is generally easy-going and very cheerful and relaxed but her voice, however, have the tone a seductive mature woman with a small French accent, which may cause males br distracted with her physical body. Due to her omniscience, she lost most of her emotions as well, such as fear, surprise and disgust but she is an expert actor and can at least force one of them in her face when necessary. Moreover, her lack of fear grants her with the absence fear of death or being hurt. Such as when she greeted ExKrieg who'd come to kill her, with a simple "Hello!"; stopping him mid-swing and startling him. She also seems to have less modesty than most, as she had no problem nearly fully exposing her breasts to others to show them her "Demon Mark" to prove that she is the "Demon King". She has also expressed an interest in having strong children, having searched for worthy Devils but couldn't find none. It is hinted that the reason as to why she wants to have strong children is because she wants her children to join her cause to overthrow the creators of the "matrix" and then dispatch them since she refuses to be replaced by one of them. She gave birth to Leohart using her own energy in the hopes he could aid her in her plans but his power was only 100,000,000x above the Pure-Bloode Devils (which amazingly still low compared to Supreme Gods like Sequined and Spectra but powerful enough to take down entire universes).
Ragnarok was also uninterested in hard-work (for being the mother of Sin, she also reign over Sloth), preferring to absorb souls to grow her powers instead of relying on her own personal strength but she knows very well her flaws and never expose them to her enemies. As such, despite being a Supreme Goddess, she is not arrogant enough to overstimate her enemies because of her power, unlike Sequined who brags about her authority and power all the time. For obvious reasons, she also holds the sin of greed, lust, gluttony, envy and wrath. However, due to how cold she and shows a few emotions, she discarded most of her sins, such as greed, gluttony, envy and wrath and gave them to the future demons who would later become members of Leohart's Cult. Currently, she only holds pride and lust (lust for despair and suffering rather than sexual, amazingly). Even so, her sin of pride and lust were divided between some demons and devils of Hell, who they are is unknown but some are also part of Leohart's Cult.At the same time of being a seeker for despair and a Devil, she did not seem to consider herself evil, rationalizing her actions as being for the good of the existence to keep order, and then helping all people to wake up from the matrix that is called life. Upon being called a monster for her actions, for being worse than she was suppose to be, Ragnarok says she is just above good and evil for being a goddess, even if she knew her actions were good or bad, she still doesn't seem to consider them with remorse and added it's only normal for mortals to die by the hands of Goddess of Death, Gods of Chaos, Gods of War and among others. It can be said that no matter how evil she is, and how she consider herself to be cruel, she still calls herself as above the common morality.
Despite her kind side, she can also strike fear at others when she's angered, but her wrath is showed not in anger but psychotic faces that may give mortals nightmares. She is quite the intelligent woman when it comes to the business world, as she has got a talent in finding hidden gems that have not yet been properly evaluated at its true price, due to having good connections. She was able to create a huge business out of rare crops that only people who live in the countryside knows or crafts that natives makes, and she was able to make them popular in many mortal worlds. Like her sister, Ranarok has a very sharp intuition about the feelings and desires of people, which she exploits to the fullest when dealing with her victims and manipulating others to do her bidding. Despite her warped aspects, she does seem to believe in creating a omniverse full of despair, a world where everything cannot be predicted by her omniscience, she is going to anything to fulfill this ambition, regardless of what she has to sacrifice, from her loved ones, empire, people, her dignity and even her own life.
It is revealed that she is very self-conscious in her conversation with Lucifer, having no idea of her own sex appeal and was quickly embarrassed when it was pointed out to her. She was also embarrassed when people said that she had the largest breasts out of the women of the Underworld, implying that she may have an attractive body but don't know how to use it to seduce others. Ragnarok's relationship with her son Leohart is extremely complicated, whether in the bad future or the present. Ragnarok largely ignored Leohart as he grew up, as she wrapped up in her research to commit suicide and overthrow Paradise and often used him as an unwilling "guinea pig" for curses.
Sanity and IssuesFor being the Goddess of Evil and Death, as well as the Supreme Devil of the Underworld, who ruled Hell for quintillion years, bringing misery, pain and suffering for trillions and trillions, is hard to believe such person can be totally sane and has no mentall illiness for being exposed to constant hellish moments. In addition, the same person is a Goddess made of evil and chaos, whose's only nature is to bring the worse in people and destruction to all creation. So what makes the Devil, Satan, completely sane in comparison to other antagonists who suffer from deep psychological problems like sadism, narcissism, psychopath, explosive anger and among others?
Made of Evil?
While being the Goddess of Evil and is a being made of negative energy like chaos and darkness itself, Ragnarok has an independent mind similar to a mortal's.
The only thing in her very own existence that is made of pure evil and darkness are her own powers, the powers which are used to pass judgment to sinner souls and bring evil and destruction to the world. Aside from that, there is nothing wrong with her mind considering that her regeneration, not only heal physical damage but also even emotional damage. Her healing ability also heals brain damage which is caused by situations of extreme pressure, which may cause normal people to have their mind broken by a terrible experience that will cause the sanity of the victim to fade away. In her cause, she only suffers from boredom and deep depression for living for so long and knowing absolutely everything that are caused by her powers and immortality. Every time that her depression damage her sanity, her powers immediately heal her broken emotions and return her to her normal state of mental health.
All to end her boredom?
Her inability to die and tons of super-power made her above the level of all living beings, and better than everyone, and she knows everything about everything and everyone. That feeling bored the absolute heck out of her, which no matter how she tried to enjoy, she couldn't because she had the mind of a mortal who could easily love and get bored of something.
Her love for despair is something new to her as the Goddess of Evil's only duty to kill the mortals to keep balance, a quick death without pain. However, when she discovered killing people in slow and painful methods using despair, she discovered that the reactions of all people are something new she cannot predict so easily as despair causes people to do the imaginable. Such as child being able to kill another child without knowing he had the capacity to kill. In another words, her love for despair is more like something which can be compared to sexual urge, something that all living beings feel and is normal to have. Her actions are more related to her boredom, but also involved with her twisted views of all existence itself. Basically, her immortality and omnipotence removed all her purposes on life and now has no reasons to live as she basically knows everything and has everything. That' why, she appealed to despair of herself and other living beings to continue living, since this is something that she cannot foresee in the future.
She believes all existence is a "matrix" as she was born so long ago she don't even remember how and when she was born. Moreover, she was the only living thing in all existence at the time she appeared on reality. This caused her to think that was created by a higher force of nature and that existence itself is like a simulator created by the same entity who gave life to her. And for being immortal and omniscient, Ragnarok has gone bored of the world and gained hatred for the entity that created her for giving her absolutely everything and cursing her with eternal life. She is not only moved by her needs to end her boredom but also to destroy the creator who created such horrible world. She also involves other people in her plans and seek to free the souls of all living things by killing the creator of that matrix and then forcing them to wake up in the real world. Once everything is finished, she can create her own matrix with worlds full of despair and sorrow, a place of eternal pain where omniscience doesn't work.
Confronting the heroes, she is ordered by Katarina to tell her why she's doing all this, hurting so many people, causing so much pain.... Ragnarok gives a little speech about making a world "free" from the "matrix". Chuckling at the idea that her motive is something so grand, Ragnarok proclaims that truthfully, every single of her goals is a hobby. She compares her schemes to dedicating your life to work or building a social circle, something like working hard to be promoted in their job. Her whole "new world" plan is just a vague 'final' goal when in reality, the pain, despair and suffering she's causing along the way and at the end of it is her ACTUAL motive. Meaning that, unlike other people who hurt people for self-pleasure like psychopaths, Ragnarok consider all of her objectives to be a hobby while the despair and pain she will cause during their process in her main reason.
However, there are many psychopaths who just do cruel things without caring much about their actions. However, Ragnarok is fully sane and suffers from any mental disease. She's not a sociopath, she is not a narcissist, she is not sadist, she is not insane, she doesn't have Blue and Orange Morality, and she doesn't have a Lack of Empathy like other demons and devils do. Ragnarok, unlike all other villains, is a normal person who just happens to have her wires crossed and makes her enjoy pain in her self and in others. She can feel sorrow for loved ones, she can have friendships, she care about animals, and she can feel love, but this all ties back into her pain-loving self to make herself feel the ultimate feeling of despair in first hand. At times, she gets attached to people just to watch them die solely so he can get off on their pain and her own.
Every "positive" relationship Ragnarok has throughout her life is shown by the end to just be an extension of her desire to one day watch their (and her own) faces twist in despair. When killing a person she loved so much, she feel intense self-loathing and desired for nothing more but to die. This hatred for her own actions invigorates her and excites her—it is the nectar that makes despair sweet. Were this not the case, she wouldn't quite care about killing herself or feel the need to give special doses of despair to those who she is closest to.

- "Praise, Hail Satan! Glory be to Satan the Father of the Earth and to Lucifer our guiding light and to Belial who walks between worlds and to Lilith the queen of the night As it was in the void of the beginning Is now, and ever shall be, Satan’s kingdom without End so it is done."
- "I believe in the force of Satan The father of the void Ruler of the earth king of the world, And in Lucifer, the guiding light and the morning star above. And Lilith, who seeded the world with her creation I believe I am my own church I hold the spirit of Satan within my heart; I was born without the stain of sin my spirit is one with Satan As it is now and ever will be, So it is done."
- "Satan, grant me the power to be strong in spirit Grant me the ability to see what is right for me. Grant me the wisdom to understand your ways. Grant me the knowledge to empower myself. Power in the name of Satan to break the bonds that hold me back. Power in the name of Satan to overcome my weaknesses. Power in the name of Satan to be strong within. Grant me the ability to know what is right for me. Grant me the vision to have wisdom in your ways I accept your guidance and wisdom In the name of Satan."
- "Satan is the god of the material world, so why not ask for assistance? While you could also use magic for the same purpose, perhaps this prayer will help as well. Satan thank you for the riches you have brought to me. Bring me victory in my desire to grow in riches. O, Satan, ruler of the material world bring your abundance and mercy grant me that which I desire. Fill me with your power and spirit."
- "Our Father Who art in Hell Cursed be thy name. Thy kingdom upon earth has come. Thy will be done in hell as it is on earth. Grant us your power and might And lead us into temptation. Deliver us unto evil. Thine is the kingdom of earth. The power and the glory. Forever and ever. So it is done."
- "Lord Satan, Horned One of the Sabbath. I come before you, alone, my soul exposed. In complete devotion, I kneel. Receive this from me, my greatest desire. You are my Master, and I am your Chosen."
- "Beautiful and majestic, you emanate such amazing strength. My eyes are fixed upon you in admiration. Darkness surrounds you, a cloak befit for my King. I know who you truly are, The Primordial One. I embrace your total essence. My Satan, My Lucifer."
- "I dedicate myself to you, in this life and the next. No matter what the cost, I will carry out your Will. I fight by your side in battle. Your enemies are my enemies, your cause is my cause. Never will I betray you. Delight or pain, I will follow you anywhere."
- "I pledge my allegiance to you. Before all the Demons, my eternal witnesses. Before the gods and goddesses of old, who stand in quiet acknowledgement. Before the angels of light, who dare not raise a hand against me. Before Jehovah and his Christ, who must admit defeat. Before nature, as it celebrates in song. Before the world, its arguments now silenced."
- "I renew the oaths I made to you long ago. The ones written with care, and those expressed in thought alone. I wear your symbols with pride and love, an outward statement that I am yours. Use the words I speak to serve your purpose, and may my identity be a testimonial to you. And when it is time for me to take my last breath, I shall be staring into your dark eyes. I choose with my entire being, to spend eternity with you. So be it. Nema!"
- "Ancient Serpent, you called me before my birth. My soul responded in sudden rapture. I could not resist you. Your presence alone demonstrates illimitable authority, an unquenchable fire that brought me to your side. Oh Satan, I am yours."
- "Conqueror of the assailant of knowledge, you changed the universe forever. Your foot rests on Jehovah's back in endless victory. Applause echoes throughout the cosmos, an eternal celebration. On the highest mountain, you reveal your glory to those you choose. Yet in the eyes of the masses, you are veiled in darkness. Oh Satan, I am yours."
- "The morality of my activities escapes me."
- "You would seek to punish me? I am beyond good and evil."
- "As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring."
- "There is no good, there is no evil, there is only flesh. And the patterns to which we submit it."
- "You make me laugh, with your metaphysical anguish, it's just that you're scared silly, frightened of life, of men of action, of action itself, of lack of order. But everything is disorder, dear boy. Vegetable, mineral and animal, all disorder, and so is the multitude of human races, the life of man, thought, history, wars, inventions, business and the arts, and all theories, passions and systems. Its always been that way. Why are you trying to make something out of it? And what will you make? What are you looking for? There is no Truth. There's only action, action obeying a million different impulses, ephemeral action, action subjected to every possible and imaginable contingency and contradiction, Life. Life is crime, theft, jealousy, hunger, lies, disgust, stupidity, sickness, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, piles of corpses. What can you do about it, my poor friend?"
- "All ends in obliteration—love in hatred, life in death, and light in empty darkness. The world is a mad design, written in the dust of the vast, hollow emptiness. It was dust, is dust, and always will be dust. Use your knowledge to annihilate the world! Accelerate the cycle."
- "The preciousness of limited life, the beauty of death. You're intoxicated by that narcissism. It's such an incredibly human choice."
- "What worth is wealth and power when all must inevitably be consigned to nothingness? If man has nothing, he need not know the pain of loss. So let there be nothing."
- "What is the difference between a man and a parasite? A man builds, a parasite asks, 'Where's my share?' A man creates, a parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?' A man invents, a parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God...'"
- "The fact you are shamed by the values of the masses proves how small you are."
- "Have you ever loved someone so much so that you would want to rid the entire world for him? I do. I wonder which one will be more painful... the despair he will feel from watching me killing his family and his world or my despair for betraying such person!"
- "Ever since first man has walked this existence, I have been here, To whisper seeds of doubt and evil thoughts into their ear. I am the Beast, the evil, the destroyer and your lady. I go by many names, but there is one you can't deny."
- "I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I am the Ruler of Hell and your Devil, the first and most damned child of creation. Magic is the power of creation and my own experiment, children. It cannot harm me."
- "I am called a villain, but mine is a doctrine reflected in the unspoken truths behind all other philosophies. Recognize that truth, my child: Strife is the single element most essential to meaning and existence. Without conflict, without struggle, all of creation might as well be so many unmoving, unfeeling stones. Without me to hate, who would have cause to call themselves holy or just?"
- "I have heard it said evil is nothing more than good's absence, as if evil was the darkness to good's light. A comforting thought, I imagine, for those seeking redemption, but, I tell you, put such thoughts from your mind. You need only peer into a demon's eyes to know evil is not some vacuum waiting for virtue to come and fill its emptiness. Evil is a force. It is an influence in the cosmos, an agency equal to or perhaps even greater than its antithesis. There are two sides in this eternal struggle, one light and the other dark. You might find evil's works reprehensible, yet to those whose hearts belong to corruption, good deeds are equally deplorable. Understand, there is no redemption, only treason against the side you were born to serve."
- "Even wicked people... need a saviour. But I'm not that person because I'm the one who punish them... but what if they join my cause by their own free will? Now things change."
- "In a dying civilization, political prestige is the reward not of the shrewdest diagnostician, but of the man with the best bedside manner."
- "The Lord forgives everything. But I'm just a devil... so I don't have to. Amen. Muahahaha!"
- "We will burn the old grass and the new will grow."
- "Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you."
- "Twists and turns are my master plan. You'll find the elements back where you began."
- "Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."
- "Not every Infernalist is a tempter: these folk are a special breed, and they challenge themselves, and each other, to games of epic corruption that not just anyone can play. After all, the satanic rondeau of lure, capture and betrayal requires a certain amount of grace and wit. Any idiot can eat babies. Turning a King into a coprophiliac, on the other hand, takes vision."
- "These are our strengths: corruption, degradation and fear. Through corruption we gain power, bringing the good closer to us and the weak under our control. Degradation is a tool to destroy the proud and strengthen the impure; by degrading the pure soul we honor Set, by reveling in degradation we increase our understanding of decay. Fear is our potent weapon. Through fear of death, we spur mortals on to further excess; through fear of undying, we torment the Kindred with that which is denied them."
- "Creation is a terrible, uncaring place. The gods are corrupt. Heaven is a sham and a scam, full of grifters and liars and con-men. The divine embodiment of virtue and righteousness hasn't left his pleasure dome in years. The average mortal is born into grinding poverty, breaks his back laboring for his entire life, and dies an ugly, undignified death. Then everything he is as a person is erased, his soul passes through an impersonal sorting system, and he begins a new life of pain and toil, just like I love it. His children will face more of the same. Those who stand up and stride forth and try to do something about this tend to get crushed under the tread of the truly mighty, corrupt provincial gods (which is most gods), their gifted sons and daughters, or the haughty Terrestrial Exalted. So why not destroy everything? I was suppose to rule Hell but honestly, NOW I HAVE A GOOD REASON TO DESTROY THEM!"
- "Farewell, happy fields, Where joy for ever dwells! Hail, horrors! hail, Infernal world! and thou, profoundest Hell, Receive thy new possessor—one who brings A mind not to be changed by place or time."
- "The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven."
- "Every man is a suffering-machine and a happiness-machine combined. The two functions work together harmoniously, with a fine and delicate precision, on the give-and-take principle. For every happiness turned out in the one department the other stands ready to modify it with a sorrow or a pain - maybe a dozen. In most cases the man's life is about equally divided between happiness and unhappiness. When this is not the case the unhappiness predominates - always; never the other. Sometimes a man's make and disposition are such that his misery-machine is able to do nearly all the business. Such a man goes through life almost ignorant of what happiness is. Everything he touches, everything he does, brings a misfortune upon him. You have seen such people? To that kind of a person life is not an advantage, is it? It is only a disaster. Sometimes for an hour's happiness a man's machinery makes him pay years of misery. Don't you know that? It happens every now and then. I will give you a case or two presently. Now the people of your village are nothing to me - you know that, don't you?"
- "There is no God... Well, at least YOUR God... If I recall, you call him Jesus Christ? Stupid. Jesus Christ is like a replacement for Spectra to give you all something to believe in. There is no earthly goood life, no happiness, no purpose in life. It is all a Dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And You are but a Thought — a vagrant Thought, a useless Thought, a homeless Thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities."
- "A God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, mouths mercy, mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him! Then, do you think, I, the Devil, is a person who creates living being with the solo purpose of bringing them misery? No. All my children, are my family. In Hell, we are Gods. In Hell, we are family."
- "Wherever there is hope, there is most definitely despair. And wherever there is life, there is death. This is why the reality is so fascinating."
- "Nobody is born evil. You become evil because life has punished you. But I must say, there is no really evil. Once you kill a person, you're merely following your own emotions. This is what makes you a human. You're normal! They are the ones who are strange."
- "Truth can be full of despair!"
- "My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes. I don't need them."
- "Come on, say it again. I'm a perfect devil. Tell me how bad I am. It makes me feel so good!"
- "The more I hear the more I feel like vomiting at your goals. Valhalla!? The Earth Gods!? So you intend to snatch everything through Odin from the side. Rather than that, the person who steals my pleasure can go and disappear."
- "Life's problems tend to sort themselves out, I don't find any point in worrying about every little thing that lies ahead."
- "Those who even try to lay a hand on my power for their self-satisfaction shall punished endlessly. And judging for how long I was stuck in that annoying prison, a lot of people abused my magic. Well... that to clean up this disgusting world."
- "Safety is an illusion. Freedom a mirage."
- - Spectra: Stay behind me, I'll save you all. Why? Because I am here!
- - Ragnarok: No, you will not. Why? Because I am here!
- "It doesn’t matter who you are, or what powers you have. All those things are meaningless to me. You are all equally helpless against my power. No--against my own very existence, you're nothing."
- "The concept of eternity is an absurd notion, born out of the fear of aging. That's why, I want to die alongside you all! Because I'm not hypocrite!"
- "Mortals die. Animals die. Plants die. Even soul reapers die. It’s the arch of the universe. Everything that comes to life eventually ceases to exist."
- "Are you done discussing your fight strategy? Please try to make it entertaining this time."
- "The aspect of death I signify is senescence. A product of time. It stands right in the way of all things that exist."
- "You see to be confused by what you’ve seen. The nature of my power is difficult to understand. Actually, the very existence of Supreme Gods is beyong your mortal logic and intelligence."
- "Gods, mortals, demons, Abyssals, angels, devils, all of their differences and strife, will, freedom, beasts, plants, the moon and stars and sun - all of it is meaningless! There is but one absolute in this world, and that is my power! ! Everything outside of that is as tiny and meaningless as an insect! It is only natural for I, wielder of the ultimate power over all, to hold dominion over the world. Among a number of competing powers, equality can never be found. But observe! In these hollow eyes of mine, the lives you bear are no greater than those of mere ants!"
- "Kill them. Do not allow even a single one of these ants to escape with his life. If you lose here, there will be no place for you to return to. Do not disappoint me. Do not force me to walk a path not stained with the blood of my enemies. Say it! Who do you serve?"
- "Incomprehensible. That is the nature of death. Furthermore, from this point onward, until this battle is over, everything that happens will be beyond the comprehension of your wits."
- "My situation is awesomely full of despair right now, isn't it?! HIT ME! BEAT ME! REDUCE ME TO ASHES! MORE! MORE! MORE! MAKE IT HURT MORE!!"
- "There are ten reasons people die: wrath, greed, madness, intoxication, destruction, despair, nihilism, sacrifice, loneliness... The people you faced like Ara Astaroth, The Fallen's Essence, Leonardo Cruz, Michael Langdon, Darth Hades and even my idiot son Leohart the Prince of Hell have different aspects of death. But mine is unique--My aspect of death is EVERYTHING. It is the most powerful aspect of all. Everyone must face it eventually. Why? Because staring at me is the same as looking at your own death. With a single blink of my eye, I can easily erase your existence along with every single memories you left inside of the people you met. Quick and fast... the only thing I'll delight is in your despair... Ahh~ That face!"
- "See? Can you feel it? Simply killing them is not really fun. You may say I'm a being with flat mind with no objectives at all in mind. But look at me. I'm all powerful, I know everything about 100% of all living beings in this existence, I know every single element and matter that exists in this plane of existence, I have infinite power, infinite knowledge, billions of worshippers, extreme beauty, entire universes under my feet and I lived for centillions years! What do I need more? What's my purpose? What do I do to get rid of this boring world where everything will happen according to my own desire? What I have to do to amuse me? I don't need nothing anymore. I have everything what 99% of all living beings want. But there is something that I amuse me! Despair is an unknown. Because of my omnscience, I was thoroughly bored with this world. Simply following my role as the Devil of this world is not enough. Tell me, what's the point of ruling Hell for billion years doing nothing but watching and making others suffer? What's the point of meeting new people if you already know you're going to meet them in the future? Nothing works for me. Despair, however, leads people to do the unknown, something that can bring the worst on people while making them do things no even them imagined they could do. The peace and love everyone longs for is just a preexisting harmony, something that can easily be predicted and will break in pieces in a matter of seconds. But despair was the one thing that was different. The despair brings the total darkness of the people's souls at once. The heart-racing excitement of messy despair has a taste like you've never known!"
- "Two people people can never become one as long as the walls of mind and body exist... but I can be everyone and including yourself. Why? Because you're a mortal. And mortals are made of good and evil essence. As long you have that little seed of darkness in your soul, I'll be always there!"
- "Relationships, secrets, money, betrayal... These are all pretty standard motives, right? The most normal of normal, totally middle of the road! But of course those aren't the only motives that exist in this world... In fact, there are as many reasons to kill as there are people on the existence. They compel mortals to kill each other, bringing despair to the world. This is what we refer to as the seed of despair! Just as water, air, and food promote growth in living things, the seed of despair also needs nourishment... And that nourishment...is love! Despair can grow only in the presence of hope and peace! Two sides of the same coin, divided by a razor-thin lines... Such is hope and despair!"
- "The end justifies the means. Everything serves the outcome. In other words... This world has ended. That's the important thing."
- "Calm down, it's okay. There's no need to panic. Every living person will be dead in hundred years anyway, so the world ending isn't that big a deal."
- "Evil is already born with all mortals so it's not really contagious but emotions are! The fear and despair are contagious, you know. It's almost like...a natural phenomenon. Everyone is capable of it. And now, the entire world has fallen into despair. In other words, if you see despair as the enemy, then your enemy...is the world itself!"
- "I didn't kill anyone. I simply gave you a little nudge in the right direction. And that's all it took for you to start killing each other. You're nothing but bloodthirsty animals... That's why anyone was murdered here! Say what you want about life, but you're all creatures of instinct, right? Despair comes naturally!"
- "It's so beautiful... Your lovely faces, eroded by fear, have come together as one..."
- "I feel despair upon despair and despair toward despair... Ah... yes... war and chaos also unleash those emotions... I think it's time for us to go on a quest for power, huh?"
- "I can think of 20,264 ways to give people a pain-inducing surprise. What do you want? Physical or emotional pain? Well, you're always welcome here."
- "You, who has it all and has grown bored of it... Only my powers and authority can save you! Only I despair, chaos, death, sorrow and war can save you! This is a despairfully fateful encounter! IT MAKES MY HEART GO DOKI-DOKI!"
- "I was thinking I want to make the world a better place, too! By killing the creators and rewrite the omniverses in my own image. A omniverse full of despair. Full of surprises!"
- "You think you can stop this chaos? You can't. Why? Because I am here."
- "You really do love life, huh? To a despairful degree, Astaroth. I mean, we have different methods of doing things. You hate mortals but you love nature and the natural creation while I don't hold hatred for them but consider them as equals in all terms."
- "Maybe the power of friendship will cause a miracle to occur!"
- "Eugen Katsuragi... Loved by everyone, trusted by everyone, your death will stain them all with despair! You'll not only die in your life but in Afterlife too! Fuhahahahaha! Imagine their pain! Your very existence is a despair since the only thing you can do is to mind-break others with your own death!"
- "Only the fit survive in this world. The only thing that kind-hearted people can do is die, y'know...?"
Quotes about Iblis
- "The Devil's most devilish when respectable." - Juria KnightWalker
- Being a incarnation of Satanic Archtype, a deceiver who walks in many shapes under many names, bringing ruin to everything and everyone, Michael Langdon is a powerful and born-to-be-evil entity with so many false faces, and he has many false names that he would publicly admit none of them. Michael is also very similar with Nyarlathotep from Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, who is more or less Satan, if not worse. A shapeshifter, sometimes humanoid (as the Black Pharaoh in 'Nyaralthotep'), sometimes a hideous Eldritch Abomination, diabolical pact-maker, trickster...Although he does act as a right-hand for Moloch, Michael can be seen as a physical manifestation of Satan or even the original Devil' will, and is referred to as their 'soul and messenger' more than once. - Michael Langdon's introduction
- "An apology for the Devil: It must be remembered that we have heard only one side of the case. God has written all the books." - Kotori Itsuka
- Everything that has transpired has been at my command. My will is the destiny of lesser men. Come. Stand before me, and revel in the power of the United Kingdom of America. Allow your body to betray you. Allow your blood to boil, and your heart to slow. Everything that is not of the Devil's Virtue will be purged—or it will be tainted." - Nether Noirton the Demon Prince
- "I understand now. Even if I must take the devil's fruit, I must gain power. I am an avenger." - Oriax Wheelahr
- "Why do our instincts insist on violence? I have witnessed the interactions between different species. The innate desire to survive seems to demand the death of the other. Why can they not stand hand in hand? So many believe the world was created by the hand of a divine power - but I see only the designs of a madman or an insane monster, bent on celebrating destruction and desperation. Our origins seem chaotic. Unintended. Purpose and being instilled solely by the passage of time. Imposed first by nature - and later men... Who exactly made us this way? God? Devil? Astaroth? Or a greater force?" - Matt Butcher
- "This work is annoying some times... You see, our main goal was to support and help mankind to be free from their evil spirits. But at times, we don't know what is exactly causing them to do evil things. The devil, the evil spirits... or themselves? What if the demons are merely a super evil force taking part in human's malice. It's sad to think about it but there times I just want to drop this fight and let everyone kill themselves... Because no matter how kind we are, they will always stab us on the back when they get the chance. I proved the same taste of people like you before." - Matt Butcher
- "One of Satan's most deceptive and powerful ways of defeating us is to get us to believe a lie. And the biggest lie is that there are no consequences to our own doing. Satan will give you whatever you ask for if it will lead you where he ultimately wants you." - Katya
- "Before the experiments began, CM came and tattooed my number personally. They put us in freezing baths, smeared chemicals on our skin, but it was the needles we were most afraid of. After the first 150 injections I stopped counting... One morning I spotted my mother among a long line of women moving toward the gas chamber. CM called me in and gave me an errand to the crematorium. It knew I would see my mother go to her death. A couple of days later it asked me if I still believed in God. I said: "No... I believe in the Devil that he will take care of you" - Bismarck Bodewig to B1-Killer Kampfdroide Unit-CM 130
- "Satan, the leader or dictator of devils, is the opposite, not of God, but of Arch-Angel Michael." - Liz
- "They used to call the devil the father of lies. But for someone whose sin is meant to be pride, you'd think that lying would leave something of a sour taste. So my theory is that when the devil wants to get something out of you, he doesn't lie at all. He tells you the exact, literal truth. And he lets you find your own way to hell." - Imperia Deamonne
- "The greatest trick the Ragnarok ever pulled, was convincing the world she didn't exist. So did Astaroth King." - Vira Hermes
- "For too long, so many lies and so much misinformation have been spread about Satan. RHP religions have for far too long, written the book on how they believe him to appear, how they believe Demons to look and these are nothing but blasphemous lies. He is not red with horns and a tail, nor does he look like a Halloween monster. He does not have flaming red eyes or rubbery wings. These depictions are intended to insult, denigrate, and blaspheme him. Contrary to Satanism being labeled as "darkness," Satan appears wearing a long white robe, [and looks more or less human.]" - Azul Jissele
- Her Smile fair as spring, as towards her she draws you. Her tongue sharp and silvery, as she implores you Your wishes she grants, as she swears to adore you Gold, silver, jewels - she lay riches before you Dues need be repaid, and she will come for you All to reclaim, no smile to console you. She'll snare you in bonds, eyes glowin' afire. To gore and torment you until the stars expire. - Heles Hermes

- "If you haven't met Satan face to face, it's because you are running in the same direction." - Alexander Anderson
- "There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan." - Leonardo Cruz
- "The world of demons, fallen Angels, is very real - a fact we need to know. We have to face up to this terrible reality, so that we do not fall unsuspectingly into their hands and come under their tyranny." - Chinatsu
- "Ragnarok was evil and despair incarnate. She was born in despair, letting it infect other people's goodness so it could rot them from the inside out, twisting them into her own image. For Ragnarok, feeling love and hope was its own despair. Creating despair in others created despair in herself, which caused her to feel both intense pain and intense bliss. Ragnarok had walked the fracture created from the conflict between pleasure and penance all her life." - Narrator
- "Ragnarok would make the impossible possible just to bring about despair." - Ike Ray Peram Westcott
- "She was an angel of everlasting darkness, delighting in her own despair, and using it to spread despair and destruction to those around her." - Darth Hades
- By a far point, Ragnarok is the character with the most nicknames in the entire storyline for being the Devil herself. While Ragnarok is never mentioned directly as the Devil, all religions of the reality associated her with the devils of their own religion. One example is Hades from Greek mythology.
- Ragnarok's dress is based off the concept of a maternity dress. In Hebrew theology, the dress of maternity is white but since Ragnarok represents the evil itself, her dress is red with the color of blood, meaning she is the mother of blood or a catastrophic that will bath the world in blood rather than light and peace.
- Ragnarok possesses a variety of references to Viking lore - most notably her name, which comes from the Ragnarök series of events within Norse mythology. Given her status as a harbinger of doom, warmonger and being the evil incarnate, her name is appropriate; the Ragnarök events dictate the end of the world and the emergence of a new and better one afterwards.
- The word Ragnarök is a compound: the first element, ragna, means "organizing powers" and was commonly used to refer to the gods or their actions. The second term, rok, translates roughly to "fate" or "destiny." Thus the word as a whole meant the Fate or the Destiny of the Gods. The second element became confused, however, quite early in the study of Germanic mythology, with the term rokkr, meaning twilight, which gave rise to the conclusive opera in the classical work Gotterdammerung, "The Twilight of the Gods."
- The idea of fate constantly infuses Norse mythology, the concept that destiny is immutable. This concept culminated in Ragnarök, the coming destruction of the world whose inevitability echoes through the majority of Norse myths. So precisely was it preordained that the details of what would occur were already known by all, and the gods prepared for it on a daily basis. However, although Ragnarök implied universal chaos, annihilation would not be total. For even at the end of existence lies a glimmer of hope for humanity.
- The term Iblis (Arabic: إِبْلِيس) may have been derived from the Arabic verbal root bls ب-ل-س (with the broad meaning of "remain in grief") or بَلَسَ (balasa, "he despaired"). Furthermore, the name is related to talbis meaning confusion. Another possibility is that it is derived from Ancient Greek διάβολος (diábolos), which is also the source of the English word 'devil'. However, there is no general agreement on the root of the term. The name itself could not be found before the Quran.
- Following the etymology of Ragnarok and Iblis, her true name is actually: Devil of the End, Devil of the Twilight, Diabla of the Chaos, Demon of the Annihilation and so go on.
- Despite being existed before all creation, it's implied that Ragnarok may have appeared in October 30 if it was suppose to be based in the calender of Earth. Devil's Night is a name associated with October 30, the night before Halloween. It is related to the "Mischief night" practiced in parts of the United States, but is chiefly associated with the serious vandalism and arson seen in Detroit, Michigan, from the 1970s to the 1990s,finally prompting the "Angels' Night" community response.
- Devil's Night dates from as early as the 1940s. Traditionally, city youths engaged in a night of mischievous or petty criminal behavior, usually consisting of minor pranks or acts of mild vandalism (such as egging, soaping or waxing windows and doors, leaving rotten vegetables or flaming bags of canine feces on front porch stoops, or toilet papering trees and shrubs) which caused little or no property damage. However, in the early 1970s, the vandalism escalated to more destructive acts such as arson. This primarily took place in the inner city, but surrounding suburbs were often affected as well. The crimes became more destructive in Detroit's inner-city neighborhoods, and included hundreds of acts of arson and vandalism every year. The destruction reached a peak in the mid- to late-1980s, with more than 800 fires set in 1984, and 500 to 800 fires in the three days and nights before Halloween in a typical year.
- Ragnarok is a universal devil who can speak in all languages of existence, including non-earthling languages.
- Ragnarok is the strongest devil/demon character of all storyline as she basically have the same powers of a Goddess of Death and Evil while Idea of Evil is more like the source of the Blackness that corrupts living beings in a more fast way using force to bring them to darkness while Ragnarok prefers to bring despair and let them corrupt themselves.
- She has told Katarina, "I haven't had a decent sleep in 800 quintillion years", which oddly enough is around the same time that ExKrieg sealed her away in an empty dimension alongside Lucifer. More curious is that Ragnarok doesn't need to sleep.
- Ragnarok is the oldest character of all CIS Productions for being the first living thing in the entire reality.
- In Qliphoth, Ragnarok represents the Qlipha demon, Belial which is a Hebrew word term "used to characterize the wicked or worthless." The etymology of the word is often understood as "lacking worth", from two common words: beli- (בְּלִי "without-") and ya'al ( יָעַל "to be of value"). Some scholars translate it from Hebrew as "worthless" (Beli yo'il), while others translate it as "yokeless" (Beli ol), "may have no rising" (Belial) or "never to rise" (Beli ya'al). Only a few etymologists have assumed it to be an invented name from the start. The word occurs twenty-seven times in the Masoretic Text, in verses such as Proverbs 6:12, where the King James Version (KJV) translates the Hebrew phrase adam beli-yaal as "a naughty person".
- In the Hebrew text the phrase is either "sons of Belial" or simply "sons of worthlessness". Phrases beginning with "sons of" are a common semitic idiom such as "sons of destruction", "sons of lawlessness". Of these 27 occurrences, the idiom "sons of Belial" (בְּנֵֽי־בְלִיַּעַל beni beliyaal) appears 15 times to indicate worthless people, including idolaters, the men of Gibeah, the sons of Eli, Nabal, and Shimei. The Geneva Bible (1560) uses "wicked," and at Jg 19:22 has the marginal note "Ebr men of Belial: that is, giuen to all wickednes."
- In the KJV these occurrences are rendered with "Belial" capitalised:
- "the sons of Eli were sons of Belial " (KJV)
- In modern versions these are usually read as a phrase: "the sons of Eli were worthless men ",
- "the wicked men of the city".
- Belial is applied to ideas, words, and counsel, to calamitous circumstances, and most frequently, to worthless men of the lowest sort, such as men who would induce worship of other gods; those of Benjamin who committed the sex crime at Gibeah; the wicked sons of Eli; insolent Nabal; opposers of God’s anointed, David; Rehoboam's unsteady associates; Jezebel's conspirators against Naboth; and men in general who stir up contention. Indicating that the enemy power would no longer interfere with the carrying out of true worship by his people in their land, YHWH declared through his prophet: "No more will any worthless person pass again through you. In his entirety he will certainly be cut off."
- While being a Pure Evil devil who relishes death, despair and chaos, Ragnarok still a lovable person towards her loved ones. She is motherly, caring and gentle to kids unlike Ara Astaroth who hates children, be they mortals and demons. However, it's revealed she only do that to get attached to them so she can feel the despair when they die at some point.
- She is associated with the planet Venus in real-life. The ancient Greeks thought that Venus was two separate stars: Phosphorus and Hesperus. Pliny the Elder credited the realization that they were a single object to Pythagoras in the sixth century BCE, while Diogenes Laertius argued that Parmenides was probably responsible. The Chinese historically referred to the morning Venus as "the Great White" (Tài-bái 太白) or "the Opener (Starter) of Brightness" (Qǐ-míng 啟明), and the evening Venus as "the Excellent West One" (Cháng-gēng 長庚). The Romans designated the morning aspect of Venus as Lucifer, literally "Light-Bringer", and the evening aspect as Vesper, both literal translations of the respective Greek names.
- The name Heylel, meaning "morning star" (or, in Latin, Lucifer), was a name for Attar, the god of the planet Venus in Canaanite mythology, who attempted to scale the walls of the heavenly city, but was vanquished by the god of the sun. The name is used in Isaiah 14:12 in metaphorical reference to the king of Babylon.
- Ragnarok's true gender is only known by the direct members of Triggers Hell and Sequined herself. Other religions, people and divine beings, however, never knew her true sex and considered her as a male devil and then named after Lucifer or Devil.
- In the real-world, Satan is a male Fallen-Angel while in the true story, he is a "she" to represent the opposite of the "God the Father" as "Devil the Mother".
- Her constant attempts to commit suicide is a way to make her enjoy life even more. For living for so long and be pratically immortal, she often tries to commit suicide using her energy to make her feel the despair of being at the brink of death. Basically, making her feel glad for being alive as she needs to accomplish her goals as fast as possible.
- Ragnarok was the first character to be conceptualized in story (but not in appearance), with the initial outline for her character created before even the creation of the story. Prime Reaper AI-78, however, was made even long before for being used as a characters in previous fanfics around 2008 and 2010.
- Ragnarok is the only devil in the story to have killed the most named characters of the story.
- Unlike her Ara, she surprisingly does not harbor any wrathful feeling towards mortals and Gods but love as she consider them to be the only thing that can unleash despair.
- Ragnarok's aspect of death is Universal. Meaning that she has all aspects of death in her own demise.
- One of her nicknames, Chernabog, means "cherna" and "bog", mean "black" and "god" in Slavic languages.
- In the Slavic myths Chernabog (named Chernobog) is a black god of darkness who contrasts with Belobog, the white god of light and the two are in eternal conflict. This could explain Chernabog's fear of light. Chernabog and Belobog are similar to Satan and God, or Ra and Apep.
- Unlike most villains from villains of CIS Productions who clearly suffers from some kind of mental illiness, Ragnarok is 100% sane and behaves like a normal civilian. Her bizarre side only comes out when she witness the despair of another person or her own.
- Ragnarok is associated with the color red. Red is assertive, cruel, daring, determined, demonic, energetic, powerful, enthusiastic, impulsive, exciting, and aggressive. Red represents physical energy, lust, passion, and desire. It symbolizes action, confidence, and courage. The color red is linked to the most primitive physical, emotional, and financial needs of survival and self-preservation.
- The color red is an intense color that is packed with emotion ranging from passionate, intense love to anger and violence — representing both cupid and the devil. It is a hot, strong, stimulating color that represents excitement and energy. Studies show that the color red can create physical effects such as elevated blood pressure, enhanced libido, increased respiratory rates, enhanced metabolism, increased enthusiasm, higher levels of energy, and increased confidence.
- The color red is a highly visible color that is able to focus attention quickly and get people to make quick decisions, which is one of the reasons fire trucks and fire engines are usually painted red. Flashing red lights mean danger or emergency, while stop signs and stop lights use the color red to alert drivers about the dangers of the intersection.
- Red represents power and courage. The color red is the basis of the traditional red power tie or red suit in business, and the red carpet for celebrities and VIPs. Red’s association with courage and bravery makes it a color that is used often in national flags, on shields, and in achievement patches.
- Too much red causes loss of temper, agitation, anger, and overbearing, demanding, and oppressive behaviors. Too little red causes lethargic, cautious, whiny, and manipulative feelings. To get out of control emotions under control add green, the opposite of red. To get rid of exhaustion, add more red. In different cultures red carries different meanings. In some cultures, red represents purity, joy, and celebration and is a traditional color worn by brides.
- In China, red is used for good luck and represents happiness and prosperity.
- In South Africa, red is the color of mourning and in Russia red is associated with communism because in history, used a red flag when they overthrew the Tsar.
- In the United States, red, when combined with white and blue represent patriotism and pride of country.
- Red gemstones are believed to increase enthusiasm and interest, boost energy, create confidence, and offer protection from fears and anxieties.
- Ragnarok is the character with biggest breast size in the entire storyline as a way to represent a seductive body to give her the title of Whore of Babylon. In the practice, she is not a prostitute but a virgin devil who never had sexual relationships. Again, making the theologic terms invalid.
- While Sequined is the overarching villain of Meta-Side (both from tech and magic side), Ragnarok has more hand only in the magic side of the story but considering that she is the mother of all evil and sin, she is basically the true ovearching villain behind all villains and cruelty of reality while Sequined has more influence in the heroic side.
- It's hinted that Lucifer fell in love with Ragnarok, which is one of the reasons why she banished from Paradise (aside from his rebellion to overthrow God).
- While Ara Astaroth is the villain who had success in all her plans in the Astaroth Hell future, Ragnarok basically always won in all her goals for keeping her influence eternal. The only two things she failed at was her goal to kill herself and take all existence with herself to make all people awake in the real world; the second thing is that she failed to create her own omniverses full of despair.
- While Ara's arc is more focused in psychological genre, Leohart's arc in action, Michael Langdon's arc in mystery and Moloch's arc in thriller and dark fantasy, Ragnarok's arc is the only arc to be focused in horror and fantasy.
- The religion that put Ragnarok as the center of evil is obviously Satanism.
- Satanism is a group of ideological and philosophical beliefs based on Satan. Contemporary religious practice of Satanism began with the founding of the Church of Satan in 1966, although a few historical precedents exist. Prior to the public practice, Satanism existed primarily as an accusation by various Christian groups toward perceived ideological opponents, rather than a self-identity. Satanism, and the concept of Satan, has also been used by artists and entertainers for symbolic expression.
- Accusations that various groups have been practicing Satanism have been made throughout much of Christian history. During the Middle Ages, the Inquisition attached to the Roman Catholic Church alleged that various heretical Christian sects and groups, such as the Knights Templar and the Cathars, performed secret Satanic rituals. In the subsequent Early Modern period, belief in a widespread Satanic conspiracy of witches resulted in mass trials of alleged witches across Europe and the North American colonies. Accusations that Satanic conspiracies were active, and behind events such as Protestantism (and conversely, the Protestant claim that the Pope was the Antichrist) and the French Revolution continued to be made in Christendom during the eighteenth to the twentieth century. The idea of a vast Satanic conspiracy reached new heights with the influential Taxil hoax of France in the 1890s, which claimed that Freemasonry worshiped Satan, Lucifer, and Baphomet in their rituals.
- In the 1980s and 1990s, the Satanic ritual abuse hysteria spread through the United States and United Kingdom, amid fears that groups of Satanists were regularly sexually abusing and murdering children in their rites. In most of these cases, there is no corroborating evidence that any of those accused of Satanism were actually practitioners of a Satanic religion or guilty of the allegations leveled at them. Since the 19th century, various small religious groups have emerged that identify as Satanists or use Satanic iconography.
- Satanist groups that appeared after the 1960s are widely diverse, but two major trends are theistic Satanism and atheistic Satanism. Theistic Satanists venerate Satan as a supernatural deity, viewing him not as omnipotent but rather as a patriarch. In contrast, atheistic Satanists regard Satan as merely a symbol of certain human traits. Contemporary religious Satanism is predominantly an American phenomenon, the ideas spreading elsewhere with the effects of globalization and the Internet.
- The Internet spreads awareness of other Satanists, and is also the main battleground for Satanist disputes.
- Satanism started to reach Central and Eastern Europe in the 1990s, in time with the fall of the Soviet Union, and most noticeably in Poland and Lithuania, predominantly Roman Catholic countries.
- Ragnarok ignites a blue flame in her hand when, in order to seal a deal, she shakes the hand of the other party.
- Lucifer and Satan are often confused in the popular Christian worldview. However, this is the result of a mistranslation of the original Greek Bible into the first English translation (the King James Bible) referring to them as one of the same. Both Christian scholars and demonologists striving for accuracy refer to Satan (the Devil) as the leader of hell, with Lucifer, Beelzebub and Astaroth jointly serving directly below him. There is another Satan by the name of Samael, who would act as the "accuser" and even the Angel of Death.
- Most Jews do not believe in the existence of a supernatural omnimalevolent figure of Satan. Traditionalists and philosophers in medieval Judaism adhered to rational theology, rejecting any belief in rebel or fallen angels, and viewing evil as abstract. The Rabbis usually interpreted the word satan as it is used in the Tanakh as referring strictly to human adversaries and rejected all of the Enochian writings mentioning Satan as a literal, heavenly figure from the Biblical canon, making every attempt to root them out. Nonetheless, the word satan has occasionally been metaphorically applied to evil influences, such as the Jewish exegesis of the yetzer hara ("evil inclination") mentioned in Genesis 6:5.
- Satan had minimal role in medieval Christian theology, but he frequently appeared as a recurring comedic stock character in late medieval mystery plays, in which he was portrayed as a comic relief figure who "frolicked, fell, and farted in the background". Jeffrey Burton Russell describes the medieval conception of Satan as "more pathetic and repulsive than terrifying" and he was seen as little more than a nuisance to God's overarching plan.
- Ragnarok is only the villain character of the entire storyline that doesn't have any funny moment, not even in the slightest moment. Almost 99% of all villains follow the Marvel Formula from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to at least keep the viewer entertained but for being 100% sane and the Devil herself, she lacks any kind of comic relief trace.
Religious & Mythological Inspiriations
Satan is an entity in the Abrahamic religions that seduces humans into sin. In Christianity and Islam, he is usually seen as a fallen angel, or a jinni, who used to possess great piety and beauty, but rebelled against God, who nevertheless allows him temporary power over the fallen world and a host of demons.
A figure known as "the satan" first appears in the Tanakh as a heavenly prosecutor, a member of the sons of God subordinate to Yahweh, who prosecutes the nation of Judah in the heavenly court and tests the loyalty of Yahweh's followers by forcing them to suffer. During the intertestamental period, possibly due to influence from the Zoroastrian figure of Angra Mainyu, the satan developed into a malevolent entity with abhorrent qualities in dualistic opposition to God. In the apocryphal Book of Jubilees, Yahweh grants the satan (referred to as Mastema) authority over a group of fallen angels to tempt humans to sin and punish them.
In the Synoptic Gospels, Satan tempts Jesus in the desert and is identified as the cause of illness and temptation. Satan is described in the New Testament as the "ruler of the demons" and "the god of this age". In the Book of Revelation, Satan appears as a Great Red Dragon, who is defeated by Michael the Archangel and cast down from Heaven. He is later bound for one thousand years, but is briefly set free before being ultimately defeated and cast into the Lake of Fire. In Christianity, Satan is also known as the Devil and, although the Book of Genesis does not mention him, he is often identified as the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
Satan's appearance is never described in the Bible, but, since the ninth century, he has often been shown in Christian art with horns, cloven hooves, unusually hairy legs, and a tail, often naked and holding a pitchfork. These are an amalgam of traits derived from various pagan deities, including Pan, Poseidon, and Bes. In medieval times, Satan played a minimal role in Christian theology and was used as a comic relief figure in mystery plays. During the early modern period, Satan's significance greatly increased as beliefs such as demonic possession and witchcraft became more prevalent. During the Age of Enlightenment, belief in the existence of Satan became harshly criticized. Nonetheless, belief in Satan has persisted, particularly in the Americas.
In the Quran, Shaitan, also known as Iblis, is an entity made of fire who was cast out of Heaven because he refused to bow before the newly-created Adam and incites humans and jinn to sin by infecting their minds with waswās ("evil suggestions"). Although Satan is generally viewed as evil, some groups have very different beliefs. In Theistic Satanism, Satan is considered a deity who is either worshipped or revered. In LaVeyan Satanism, Satan is a symbol of virtuous characteristics and liberty. Satan appears frequently in Christian literature, most notably in Dante Alighieri's Inferno, variants of the Faust legend, John Milton's Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, and the poems of William Blake. He continues to appear in film, television, and music.
Hades (/ˈheɪdiːz/; Greek: ᾍδης Hádēs, Ἅιδης Háidēs) was the ancient Greek chthonic god of the underworld, which eventually took his name.
In Greek mythology, Hades was regarded as the oldest son of Cronus and Rhea, although the last son regurgitated by his father. He and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated their father's generation of gods, the Titans, and claimed rulership over the cosmos. Hades received the underworld, Zeus the sky, and Poseidon the sea, with the solid earth—long the province of Gaia—available to all three concurrently. Hades was often portrayed with his three-headed guard dog Cerberus. Etruscan god Aita and Roman gods Dis Pater and Orcus were eventually taken as equivalent to the Greek Hades and merged as Pluto, a Latinization of his euphemistic Greek name Plouton (Greek: Πλούτων Ploútōn).
In Greek mythology, Hades, the god of the underworld, was a son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. He had three sisters, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera, as well as two brothers, Poseidon and Zeus, the youngest of the three. Upon reaching adulthood, Zeus managed to force his father to disgorge his siblings. After their release, the six younger gods, along with allies they managed to gather, challenged the elder gods for power in the Titanomachy, a divine war. The war lasted for ten years and ended with the victory of the younger gods. Following their victory, according to a single famous passage in the Iliad (xv.187–93), Hades and his two brothers, Poseidon and Zeus, drew lots for realms to rule. Zeus received the sky, Poseidon received the seas, and Hades received the underworld, the unseen realm to which the souls of the dead go upon leaving the world as well as any and all things beneath the earth. Some myths suggest that Hades was dissatisfied with his turnout, but had no choice and moved to his new realm.
Hades obtained his wife and queen, Persephone, through abduction at the behest of Zeus. This myth is the most important one Hades takes part in; it also connected the Eleusinian Mysteries with the Olympian pantheon, particularly as represented in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, which is the oldest story of the abduction, most likely dating back to the beginning of the 6th Century BC. Despite modern connotations of death as evil, Hades was actually more altruistically inclined in mythology. Hades was often portrayed as passive rather than evil; his role was often maintaining relative balance. That said, he was also depicted as cold and stern, and he held all of his subjects equally accountable to his laws. Any other individual aspects of his personality are not given, as Greeks refrained from giving him much thought to avoid attracting his attention.
Hades ruled the dead, assisted by others over whom he had complete authority. The House of Hades was described as full of "guests," though he rarely left the Underworld. He cared little about what happened in the Upperworld, as his primary attention was ensuring none of his subjects ever left.
Anubis (/əˈnjuːbɪs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις, Egyptian: jnpw, Coptic: ⲁⲛⲟⲩⲡ Anoup) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head. Archeologists have identified Anubis's sacred animal as an Egyptian canid, the African golden wolf.
Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumed different roles in various contexts. Depicted as a protector of graves as early as the First Dynasty (c. 3100 – c. 2890 BC), Anubis was also an embalmer. By the Middle Kingdom (c. 2055 – 1650 BC) he was replaced by Osiris in his role as lord of the underworld. One of his prominent roles was as a god who ushered souls into the afterlife. He attended the weighing scale during the "Weighing of the Heart," in which it was determined whether a soul would be allowed to enter the realm of the dead. Despite being one of the most ancient and "one of the most frequently depicted and mentioned gods" in the Egyptian pantheon, Anubis played almost no role in Egyptian myths.
Anubis was depicted in black, a color that symbolized both rebirth and the discoloration of the corpse after embalming. Anubis is associated with Wepwawet (also called Upuaut), another Egyptian god portrayed with a dog's head or in canine form, but with grey or white fur. Historians assume that the two figures were eventually combined. Anubis' female counterpart is Anput. His daughter is the serpent goddess Kebechet.
In Egypt's Early Dynastic period (c. 3100 – c. 2686 BC), Anubis was portrayed in full animal form, with a "jackal" head and body. A "jackal" god, probably Anubis, is depicted in stone inscriptions from the reigns of Hor-Aha, Djer, and other pharaohs of the First Dynasty. Since Predynastic Egypt, when the dead were buried in shallow graves, "jackals" had been strongly associated with cemeteries because they were scavengers which uncovered human bodies and ate their flesh. In the spirit of "fighting like with like," a "jackal" was chosen to protect the dead, because "a common problem (and cause of concern) must have been the digging up of bodies, shortly after burial, by jackals and other wild dogs which lived on the margins of the cultivation.
Chernobog (from Proto-Slavic *čĭrnŭ 'black' and *bogŭ "god") – also spelled as Chernabog, Czernobog, Chornoboh, Czorneboh, Čiernoboh, Crnobog, Tchernobog and Zcerneboch among other variants – is a Slavic deity, whose name means black god, about whom much has been speculated but little can be said definitively. The only historical sources, which are Christian ones, interpret him as a dark, accursed god, but it is questionable how important or malicious he was really considered to be by ancient Slavs. The name is attested only among West Slavic tribes of the 12th century, hence it is speculated that he was not a very important or very old deity. Older scholarship assumed him to be the counterpart of Belobog.
One historic source on Slavic mythology mentioning this god is the 12th-century Chronica Slavorum, a work written by German priest Helmold which describes customs and beliefs of several Wendish and Polabian tribes who were still pagans. Helmold wrote that: "The Slavs, too, have a strange delusion. At their feasts and carousals they pass about a bowl over which they utter words — I should not say of consecration but of execration — in the name of the gods—of the good one, as well as of the bad one—professing that all propitious fortune is arranged by the good god, adverse, by the bad god. Hence, also, in their language they call the bad god Diabol, or Zcerneboch, that is, the Black God." On the basis of this inscription, many modern mythographers assumed that, if the evil god was Chernobog, the black god, then the good god should be Belobog or the white god. However, the name of Belobog is not mentioned by Helmold anywhere in his Chronica, nor is it ever mentioned in any of the historic sources that describe the deities of any Slavic tribe or nation. Svetovid may serve as the opposite deity.
A veneration of this deity perhaps survived in folklore of several Slavic nations. In some South Slavic vernaculars, there exists the phrase do zla boga (meaning "to [the] evil god", or perhaps "to [the] evil [of] god"), used as an attribute to express something which is exceedingly negative.
Kālī (/ˈkɑːli/; Sanskrit: काली), also known as Kālikā (Sanskrit: कालिका), is a Hindu goddess. Kali is one of the ten Mahavidyas, a list which combines Sakta and Buddhist goddesses.
Kali's earliest appearance is that of a destroyer of evil forces. She is the goddess of one of the four subcategories of the Kulamārga, a category of tantric Saivism. Over time, she has been worshipped by devotional movements and tantric sects variously as the Divine Mother, Mother of the Universe, Adi Shakti, or Adi Parashakti. Shakta Hindu and Tantric sects additionally worship her as the ultimate reality or Brahman. She is also seen as divine protector and the one who bestows moksha, or liberation. Kali is often portrayed standing or dancing on her consort, the Hindu god Shiva, who lies calm and prostrate beneath her. Kali is worshipped by Hindus throughout India especially in Kolkata and suburbs.
Hugh Urban notes that although the word Kālī appears as early as the Atharva Veda, the first use of it as a proper name is in the Kathaka Grhya Sutra (19.7). Kali appears in the Mundaka Upanishad (section 1, chapter 2, verse 4) not explicitly as a goddess, but as the dark blue tongue of the seven flickering tongues of Agni, the Hindu god of fire.
According to David Kinsley, Kāli is first mentioned in Hindu tradition as a distinct goddess around 600 AD, and these texts "usually place her on the periphery of Hindu society or on the battlefield." She is often regarded as the Shakti of Shiva, and is closely associated with him in various Puranas.
Her most well known appearance on the battlefield is in the sixth century Devi Mahatmyam. The deity of the first chapter of Devi Mahatmyam is Mahakali, who appears from the body of sleeping Vishnu as goddess Yoga Nidra to wake him up in order to protect Brahma and the World from two demons Madhu and Kaitabha. When Vishnu woke up he started a war against the two demons. After a long battle with lord Vishnu when the two demons were undefeated Mahakali took the form of Mahamaya to enchant the two asuras. When Madhu and Kaitabha were enchanted by Mahakali, Vishnu killed them.
In later chapters the story of two demons can be found who were destroyed by Kali. Chanda and Munda attack the goddess Durga. Durga responds with such anger that her face turns dark and Kali appears out of her forehead. Kali's appearance is dark blue, gaunt with sunken eyes, and wearing a tiger skin and a garland of human heads. She immediately defeats the two demons. Later in the same battle, the demon Raktabija is undefeated because of his ability to reproduce himself from every drop of his blood that reaches the ground. Countless Raktabija clones appear on the battlefield. Kali eventually defeats him by sucking his blood before it can reach the ground, and eating the numerous clones. Kinsley writes that Kali represents "Durga's personified wrath, her embodied fury."
In East Asian and Buddhist mythology, Yama (sometimes known as the King of Hell, King Yan or Yanluo) is a dharmapala (wrathful god) said to judge the dead and preside over the Narakas ("Hells" or "Purgatories") and the cycle of afterlife saṃsāra.
Although based on the god Yama of the Hindu Vedas, the Buddhist Yama has developed different myths and different functions from the Hindu deity. He has also spread far more widely and is known in most countries where Buddhism is practiced, including China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Bhutan, Mongolia, Thailand, Nepal, United States, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos.
In Chinese mythology, King Yan (Chinese: t 閻王, s 阎王, p Yánwáng) is the god of death and the ruler of Diyu, overseeing the "Ten Kings of Hell". He is also known as Yanluo (t 閻羅王, s 阎罗王, p Yánluówáng), a transcription of the Sanskrit for King Yama (यम राज, Yama Rājā). In both ancient and modern times, Yan is portrayed as a large man with a scowling red face, bulging eyes, and a long beard. He wears traditional robes and a judge's cap or a crown which bears the character for "king" (王). He typically appears on Chinese hell money in the position reserved for political figures on regular currency.
Yan is not only the ruler but also the judge of the underworld and passes judgment on all the dead. He always appears in a male form, and his minions include a judge who holds in his hands a brush and a book listing every soul and the allotted death date for every life. Ox-Head and Horse-Face, the fearsome guardians of hell, bring the newly dead, one by one, before Yan for judgement. Men or women with merit will be rewarded good future lives or even revival in their previous life. Men or women who committed misdeeds will be sentenced to torture or miserable future lives. In some versions, Yan divides Diyu into eight, ten, or eighteen courts each ruled by a Yan King, such as King Chujiang, who rules the court reserved for thieves and murderers.
The spirits of the dead, on being judged by Yan, are supposed to either pass through a term of enjoyment in a region midway between the earth and the heaven of the gods or to undergo their measure of punishment in the nether world. Neither location is permanent and after a time, they return to Earth in new bodies.
"Yan" was sometimes considered to be a position in the celestial hierarchy, rather than an individual. There were said to be cases in which an honest mortal was rewarded the post of Yan and served as the judge and ruler of the underworld. Some said common people like Bao Zheng, Fan Zhongyan, Zhang Binglin became the Yan at night or after death.
These Chinese beliefs subsequently spread to Korea and Japan. In Japan, he is called Enma (閻魔, prev. "Yenma"), King Enma (閻魔王, Enma-ō), and Great King Enma (閻魔大王, Enma Dai-Ō). In Korea, Yan is known as Yeom-ra (염라) and Great King Yeom-ra (염라대왕, Yŏm-ra Daewang). In Vietnam, these Buddhist deities are known as Diêm La or Diêm Vương and are venerated as a council of all ten kings who oversee underworld realm of địa ngục.
"If you lie, Lord Enma will pull out your tongue" (嘘をつけばと閻魔様に舌を抜かれる Uso o tsukeba to enmasama ni shita o nukareru) is a superstition in Japan often told to scare children into telling the truth.
A Japanese kotowaza states "When borrowing, the face of a jizō; when repaying (a loan), the face of Enma" (借りる時の地蔵顔、返す時の閻魔顔). Jizō is typically portrayed with a serene, happy expression whereas Enma is typically portrayed with a thunderous, furious expression. The kotowaza alludes to changes in people's behaviour for selfish reasons depending on their circumstances.
In Japanese mythology, Izanami no mikoto (Japanese: 伊弉冉尊 or 伊邪那美命, meaning "she who invites") is a goddess of both creation and death, as well as the former wife of the god Izanagi-no-mikoto. She is also referred to as Izanami no kami.
The first gods Kunitokotachi and Amenominakanushi summoned two divine beings into existence, the male Izanagi and the female Izanami, and charged them with creating the first land. To help them do this, Izanagi and Izanami were given a spear decorated with jewels, named Ame-no-nuboko (heavenly spear). The two deities then went to the bridge between heaven and earth, Ame-no-ukihashi ("floating bridge of heaven"), and churned the sea below with the spear. When drops of salty water fell from the spear, Onogoroshima ("self-forming island") was created. They descended from the bridge of heaven and made their home on the island.
Eventually they wished to be mated, so they built a pillar called Ame-no-mihashira ("pillar of heaven"; the mi- is an honorific prefix) and around it they built a palace called Yahiro-dono (one hiro is approximately 1.82 m, so the "eight-hiro-palace" would have been 14.56 m). Izanagi and Izanami circled the pillar in opposite directions and, when they met on the other side, Izanami spoke first in greeting. Izanagi did not think that this was proper, but they mated anyhow. They had two children, Hiruko ("leech-child") and Awashima ("faint island"), but they were born deformed and were not considered deities, but devils.
They put the children into a boat and set them out to sea, then petitioned the other gods for an answer as to what they did wrong. They were told that the male deity should have spoken first in greeting during the marriage ceremony. So Izanagi and Izanami went around the pillar again, this time Izanagi speaking first when they met, and their marriage was finally successful.
zanagi-no-Mikoto lamented the death of Izanami-no-Mikoto and undertook a journey to Yomi ("the shadowy land of the dead"). He searched for Izanami-no-Mikoto and found her. At first, Izanagi-no-Mikoto could not see her for the shadows hid her appearance. He asked her to return with him. Izanami-no-Mikoto informed Izanagi-no-Mikoto that he was too late. She had already eaten the food of the underworld and was now one with the land of the dead. She could no longer return to the living but would try to ask for permission to leave.
The news shocked Izanagi-no-Mikoto, but he refused to leave her in Yomi. While Izanami-no-Mikoto was sleeping, he took the comb that bound his long hair and set it alight as a torch. Under the sudden burst of light, he saw the horrid form of the once beautiful and graceful Izanami-no-Mikoto. She was now a rotting form of flesh with maggots and foul creatures running over her ravaged body.
Crying out loud, Izanagi-no-Mikoto could no longer control his fear and started to run, intending to return to the living and abandon his death-ridden wife. Izanami-no-Mikoto woke up, shrieking and indignant, and chased after him. She also sent Yakusa-no-ikazuchi-no-kami (Raijin) and shikome (foul women) to hunt for Izanagi-no-Mikoto and bring him back to Yomi.
Izanagi-no-Mikoto burst out of the entrance and pushed a boulder in the mouth of the Yomotsuhirasaka (黄泉津平坂; cavern that was the entrance of Yomi). Izanami-no-Mikoto screamed from behind this impenetrable barricade and told Izanagi-no-Mikoto that if he left her she would destroy 1,000 residents of the living every day. He furiously replied he would give life to 1,500 residents.
Eris (/ˈɪərɪs, ˈɛrɪs/; Greek: Ἔρις, "Strife") is the Greek goddess of strife and discord. Her name is the equivalent of Latin Discordia, which means "discord". Eris' Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia. Homer equated her with the war-goddess Enyo, whose Roman counterpart is Bellona. The dwarf planet Eris is named after the goddess.
In the beginning there was Eris, for that is what they named her in the West. She was pure and absolute Chaos as it is understood in the divine symbol of the Tai Chi. She was the substrate from which the universe sprang and upon which it grows. Eris immaculately conceived and bore five children: Gaia (the earth), Uranus (the great sky), Pluto (the underworld) and the first two ravens. Gaia and Uranus wed, and bore the twelve Titans, the youngest of whom was Cronus, Time Binder and Lord of Agriculture. Cronus is the one who began our troubles.
Cronus, dissatisfied with his station, disavowed his mother, castrated his father and proclaimed himself King of All Eternity. For this, Eris cursed him. He learned of the curse Eris had cast upon him, that he too would be betrayed and usurped by one of his own children. Upon hearing this he devoured them all, as is the agriculturalist’s way. At this time Cronus’ wife Rhea was pregnant with a sixth child. Rhea did not wish to see her son consumed by her husband. So, when the child was born, she wrapped a large stone in linen and presented it to the bastard. He ate it without so much as looking to see if it was, in fact, his son. Rhea then spirited this child away and hid him with his grandmother Gaia, who was then living with her mother Eris in the eternal darkness (Minoan Crete), where Cronus could not find them. There Gaia and Eris were tasked with raising Zeus, youngest son of Cronus, the boy that lived.
But Eris, not being beholden to time, Saw that Zeus would grow up to become the God of Hierarchy, Dominance, and Male Supremacy. This she would not abide. Eris set forth to kill Zeus before his Reign of Terror could go through (what A. N. Whitehead refers to as) “the formality of actually occurring.” But Zeus’ grandmother Gaia caught wise to Eris’ machinations against her grandson and she warded over him with the protective force that only the Magna Mater could command. Eris knew that in order to kill this boy-god she would have to destroy the entire universe and start from scratch, and she couldn’t be bothered. So instead she resolved to make Zeus’ life a farce and a tragedy and to do all that she could to subvert his Male Dominance Hierarchy. And this is what she did. She ruined everything for him. She made him look like a complete ass in front of all of his important friends. She thwarted and upended every venture that Zeus ever undertook and generally pissed him the fuck off all the goddamn time.
Zeus did eventually grow up and overthrow his dad and free his older siblings, and for good measure enslaved and subjugated all of his aunts and uncles. This last part pissed his grandmother, Gaia, off so bad. She couldn’t believe that the boy-god she’d raised and protected would turn around and do such harm to her own children, the Twelve Titans. Gaia was choked, and so she birthed one final Titan, this time sired with Pluto of the underworld, for Uranus had been castrated. The Titan that was born was Typhon, who can be described only as the Father of All Monsters.
Typhon rode forth with Eris to confront and kill Zeus, but Zeus rode with Nike (Victory) that day and he was not defeated in battle. Eris had pissed Zeus off for the last time. With his supreme power as the Dominant Male, Zeus rewrote the histories in order to portray Eris as a C list, subordinate god. Instead of Eris being Zeus’ great grandmother, Zeus had everyone believe that she was, in fact, his daughter. (Ha! GTFO.)
It is known that, in the days when men and gods freely mingled, Zeus held a wedding banquet for the parents of Achilles. All of the gods were invited, except for Eris. Eris really wanted to go to this party because Ares the God of War was going to be there and she was fixing to prank him. (He took himself rather seriously, you see.) Eris took her not-being-invited as a great snub. She took it as the opportunity to sow a seed that would eventually lead to the ruin of Mankind’s close friendship with Zeus and the Gods of Olympus.
Eris whipped out a Golden Apple with the inscription Kalisti (to the prettiest one) and proceeded to throw it over the wall and into the garden party. Upon it’s discovery, Hera, (wife of Zeus), Athena, and Aphrodite began to quarrel over who of them it belonged to, by right. Eventually the Vain Goddesses went to Zeus to have the issue decisively resolved. Well, Zeus wasn’t having any of it. Having fucked all three and not wanting to loose the possibility of fucking them in the future, he wasn’t about to touch this one. No chance. None of the other gods wanted to judge either, so Zeus ordered (known kiss-ass) Paris, a favoured mortal, to be the judge. The three goddesses stripped naked and bathed themselves in the sacred pool and beautified themselves as best they could.
Paris had a pretty serious erection going but his mortal eyes could find no flaw in any of them. Frustrated, the goddesses tried to bribe him. Hera offered him kingship of all of Europe and Asia, Athena offered wisdom and strategic prowess in war. Aphrodite, understanding fully the appetites of man, offered Paris the most beautiful woman in the world: Helen of Troy.
Paris accepted Aphrodite’s offer and awarded her the Apple of Discord. Thus began the Trojan War, a war that would light the fire of an unending string of bloody conflicts that has endured up until this very day, this is why the Greeks called our beloved lady, Eris. When the war ended the Greeks made the huge mistake of defiling and destroying all of the temples to the Gods. This angered Zeus so much that he banished all mortals from Olympus forevermore. This was the beginning of the end of the Gods’ favour for the Greeks (and look at them now).
The Gods went on to smile upon the Romans for a time after this, taking on new titles but remaining largely unchanged. In this time Eris was known as Discordia but for the most part she was nowhere to be found.
Baron Samedi (English: Baron Saturday) also written Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi, is one of the loa of Haitian Vodou. Samedi is a loa of the dead, along with Baron's numerous other incarnations Baron Cimetière, Baron La Croix, and Baron Kriminel. He is syncretized with Saint Martin de Porres.
He is usually depicted with a top hat, black tail coat, dark glasses, and cotton plugs in the nostrils, as if to resemble a corpse dressed and prepared for burial in the Haitian style. He has a white, frequently skull-like face (or actually has a skull for a face), and speaks in a nasal voice. The former President for Life of Haiti, François Duvalier, modeled his cult of personality on Baron Samedi; he was often seen speaking in a deep nasal tone and wearing dark glasses.
He is noted for disruption, obscenity, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum. Additionally, he is the loa of resurrection, and in the latter capacity he is often called upon for healing by those near or approaching death, as it is only the Baron that can accept an individual into the realm of the dead.
Baron Samedi spends most of his time in the invisible realm of vodou spirits. He is notorious for his outrageous behavior, swearing continuously and making filthy jokes to the other spirits. He is married to another powerful spirit known as Maman Brigitte, but often chases after mortal women. He loves smoking and drinking and is rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth or a glass of rum in his bony fingers. Baron Samedi can usually be found at the crossroads between the worlds of the living and the dead. When someone dies, he digs their grave and greets their soul after they have been buried, leading them to the underworld.
Anton Szandor LaVeyAnton Szandor LaVey (born Howard Stanton Levey; April 11, 1930 – October 29, 1997) was an American author, musician and occultist. He was the founder of the Church of Satan and the religion of LaVeyan Satanism. He authored several books, including The Satanic Bible, The Satanic Rituals, The Satanic Witch, The Devil's Notebook, and Satan Speaks! In addition, he released three albums, including The Satanic Mass, Satan Takes a Holiday, and Strange Music. He played a minor on-screen role and served as technical advisor for the 1975 film The Devil's Rain and served as host and narrator for Nick Bougas' 1989 mondo film Death Scenes.
LaVey was the subject of numerous articles in news media throughout the world, including popular magazines such as Look, McCall's, Newsweek, and Time, and men's magazines. He also appeared on talk shows such as The Joe Pyne Show, Donahue and The Tonight Show, and in two feature-length documentaries: Satanis in 1970 and Speak of the Devil: The Canon of Anton LaVey in 1993. Two official biographies have been written on LaVey, including The Devil's Avenger by Burton H. Wolfe, published in 1974, and The Secret Life of a Satanist by Blanche Barton, published in 1990.
Historian of Satanism Gareth J. Medway described LaVey as a "born showman", with anthropologist Jean La Fontaine describing him as a "colourful figure of considerable personal magnetism". Academic scholars of Satanism Per Faxneld and Jesper Aa. Petersen described LaVey as "the most iconic figure in the Satanic milieu". LaVey was labeled many things by journalists, religious detractors and Satanists alike, including "The Father of Satanism", the "St. Paul of Satanism", "The Black Pope", and the "evilest man in the world".
Junko Enoshima (江ノ島 盾子 Enoshima Junko), is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Her title is Ultimate Fashionista (超高校級の「ギャル」chō kōkō kyū no “gyaru”, lit. Super High School Level Fashion Girl).
As a young fashionista, Junko is described as simply "not fake", charismatic and eager to try new things. During her first appearances, she comes across slightly air-headed and hot-tempered. In the official art book, she is described as a person who "drips with dissatisfaction the moment she opens her mouth" and tends to be in trouble with her classmates. She is also mentioned to be a bit too talkative with an overly carefree attitude.
However, Junko's real personality, revealed at the conclusion of the Killing School Life, is notably different: very apathetic and easily bored to an unhealthy and abnormal degree. Because of this, her behavior and mannerisms tended to be extremely erratic and unstable by her own autonomous design; keeping up one "appearance" for too long bores her, which causes her to often switch between different personas. However, she is capable of maintaining one persona for extended periods of time when necessary, such as when she was overseeing the students through Monokuma. Junko's "moods" included (but were not limited to) her Monokuma persona, sickening cuteness, severe depression, clinical sophistication, boisterous vulgarity, eerie stoicism, and haughty superiority. She switched between "moods" regularly, often imitating other students' expressions, which made for a highly unsettling conversation with the survivors. While entering the Hope's Peak Academy as one of Class 78's students, she often talked as if narrating a story, writing down her thoughts in a notebook.
Above all, Junko was deeply obsessed with despair, having found despair to be the most (and possibly the only) enjoyable emotion for her, whether it be inflicting despair unto others, or suffering from despair wholeheartedly. This made her extremely dangerous, as she wished to make the whole world feel absolute despair. However, this also often proved to be her biggest weakness, as she gave her opponents a "fair" chance to defeat her in order to make their despair all the greater if they fail, and happily welcomed her own despair if her plans fail.
Both Junko herself and the game's creators have confirmed that she truly has no reason to do things she does other than despair itself, which makes her all the more dangerous and unable to reason with. In Danganronpa Zero, it's revealed that her love for despair developed at quite young age due to an unknown reason, and that her true talent is her near supernatural analytical skills. It's also shown that under her amnesiac state, Junko doesn't show a thirst for despair or particularly strong hatred of boredom, implying that her constant case of forgetfulness had spared her from embracing despair again. However, the return of her memories reverted her to her former ways. In Danganronpa 3, it's finally revealed that her talent is the reason why she is easily bored with the world (similar to Izuru Kamukura); her obsession with despair stems from her belief that it is completely unpredictable, and thus exciting.
As a mastermind and leader of Ultimate Despair, Junko was shown to be highly intelligent, cunning, somewhat impulsive, and extremely manipulative, violent and cruel without remorse. She was a highly toxic individual, being both physically and mentally abusive to everyone around her. She manipulated people into falling madly in love with her and used their weaknesses, their despair, against them. Things like hope, peace, and happiness disgusted her, but she sometimes gave hope to others, only to turn it into despair later. She often manipulated people into doing bad things instead of directly doing them herself, and then had a habit of blaming these manipulated people and claiming it wasn't her fault, as a part of proving her point that despair exists in everyone and that hope will naturally lose to that despair. While she is very skilled, Junko can also lie and cheat to further her own goals, even if it's hypocritical and goes against her beliefs. It should be noted that even though she claims despair is the great unknown, in the end the road of despair went exactly the way she had planned.
Due to her urge to inflict despair, Junko has no qualms killing and sacrificing basically anybody to achieve her goals, including anyone she presumably actually cares or loves about. This includes her twin sister Mukuro Ikusaba or her love interest Yasuke Matsuda, and due to her extraordinary charisma, many of them such as the aforementioned Mukuro turn out to be willing sacrifices for her. Those who oppose her or the ones that she seeks to remove for her goals receive much worse fates and are more often than not killed or manipulated into joining her instantly as soon as they were found out.
While very abusive and cruel even towards her loved ones, Junko is, in fact, capable of affection; however, this only fuels her depravity. Because hurting people close to her will cause her greater despair, she tends to deal with them in more personal ways; for instance, she personally killed her sister Mukuro and her love interest Yasuke, making them both believe she did not care about them at all during their last moments, and later treating their bodies in very disrespectful manner. In the Otomedia Winter issue 2016, Kazutaka Kodaka revealed that Junko genuinely loved all her classmates from Class 78th, which is why she deliberately made them survive The Tragedy and become targets for the killing game. The more she loves someone, the more she wants to treasure and revel in their despair, which is why she set up her classmates to experience despair by her own hand. She is also shown to have quite an unusual relationship with Izuru. The opposite of this is seen in the genuinely condescending way she acts towards her Remnants of Despair, feeling nothing for the Class 77th and only viewing them as her pawns, resulting in her brainwashing them all at once and having no interest to get to know them personally. Junko repeatedly refers to the Class 77th students as "chumps", even once through Kurokuma while talking about Nagito in Danganronpa Another Episode, showing how she really doesn't take them seriously.
Following the reveal of her analytical talent, it can be inferred (but not proven) that Junko's obsessions are ironically fueled by her great ability to read, predict and empathize with people around her. She most likely understands the consequences of her actions and the exact level of suffering her plans will inflict, but this only encourages her by filling her with despair over her own monstrous acts. As a result of this, Junko actually manages to escape classification as a true sociopath, since they are defined by a complete inability to form emotional connections with others.
According to Kodaka and Junko's voice actress, her personality in Despair Arc is a more natural version of her, closer to her true self and more neutral, before she started changing her personalities regularly. This seems to imply that her behavior in the first game is a result of decreasing mental health and deeper sinking into despair, explaining the more jaded and apathetic personality. This also implies that even the Tragedy was beginning to bore her, as the seemingly chaotic event went just like she planned.
Isaac Ray Peram Westcott
Born as Ike and later known as Sir Isaac Ray Peram "Pelham" Westcott (in Japanese: アイザック・レイ・ペラム・ウェストコット, Aizakku Rei Peramu Uesutokotto), or simply known as Isaac Ray Peram Westcott or Isaac Westcott (among many other alias), is the main antagonist of the Date A Live franchise. He was introduced as the overarching antagonist of the second half of the first season (volume 1-4) and later introduced as the central antagonist of the rest of the series in other medias; from the novels, short stories, side stories, mangas, web comics, games and animation adaptation. In the following volumes, he is revealed for being behind all evil that happens in the franchise.
He is an evil and ruthless British man who works as the corrupt managing director and founder of the largest company in the world, Deus.Ex.Machina Industries, a powerful military company that is responsible to arm all nations of the world to wage wars of aggression against the Spirits and other political and military oppositions. Westcott rules it with a fascist iron fist and controls almost all aspects of life inside of his company. Recorded by history as the most powerful genuine mage who had ever lived, his entire life was the culmination of a half-century plan to destroy the current reality to create a new world. Westcott adopted the concept of racism and supremacy as his aim is to unite "racially desirable" mages as comrades, while excluding those deemed either to be religious dissidents, physically or intellectually inferior, or of a foreign race, in other words, all humans; including men, women, children, and infants. In his quest for genocide, he has been controlling the world's nations for 30 years, bringing a wave of death and destruction.
Westcott is a creepy and sinister sadomasoquist man who loves feeling negative emotions like despair and sorrow, because of that he is a person who has a abnormal mind or, in other words, a "cruel and twisted" businessman with the diabolical ambition of killing and enslaving all humans of reality and creating a new world in his image by destroying the current way of life on Earth (and maybe on the entire universe) and replace the current civilization with a nazi-like utopia where mages will rule as the master race with him as the central figure of authoritarianism and "salvation", while mankind will be persecuted, enslaved and exterminated.
Isaac Westcott is the sinister director and founder of DEM Industries, a facade military company whose true goal was to assist Isaac Westcott to study the Spirits and allow their director to become an Inverse Spirit, in order to rewrite the reality. While he often express his feeling of revenge towards mankind for exterminating his people, his true desires is mostly related to his insane behavior and obsession with negative emotions. As the most vile mage to have ever existed, Westcott was deeply obsessed with death as it causes living being to feel despair sadness and sorrow, having found those feelings to be the most (and possibly the only) enjoyable emotion for him, whether it be inflicting despair unto others, or suffering from despair wholeheartedly. This made him extremely dangerous, as he wished to make the whole world feel his pain and suffering. As such, Westcott finds pleasure, happiness and even joy in losing important people and things he loves dearly, even going to the point to form friendships only to wait and see them dying to feel the suffering (joy) of pain.
Westcott is also a person who represents the very depressive side of mankind, a person who loves living in despair and depression. It was later revealed he suffers from self-defeating personality disorder, he represents the total opposite of Shido Itsuka and Elliot Woodman, who represents life and hope, as well as altruism and humanitarianism. Isaac is a person who introduces the Hedgehog's Dillema in the story as Westcott and his friends have different wills and dreams, which forced his fellows to struggle between themselves (mostly between Westcott and Elliot) creates a world of despair and loneliness in his mind. For him, being alive is the same as being in pain, and he do his best to make the world a proper place for his depression and sorrow.
In-Universe, while most other villainous humans qualify as Well-Intentioned Extremists because they think what they do, no matter how evil, is all to save mankind from the Spirits while displaying comedy; Isaac is a living being who has the full reasoning of what he does, and commits all of his atrocities expressly out of his own free will. Westcott was first introduced as an antagonist who loves committing all kinds of atrocities but later it was revealed he believes himself to be not as "bad guy" but rather as "hero" to the point of hypocrisy as he believes all humans are evil by nature and deserves to be destroyed, no matter their race or age. He often will use this excuse to find reason in his own crimes.
Hades: Izanami (冥王・イザナミ Meiō: Izanami), also known as just Izanami (イザナミ), is a Drive manifestation. She is a playable character in BlazBlue: Centralfiction. Hades: Izanami is an immortal being, death incarnate. She is using Saya as her vessel, which was also cloned to create Lambda, Mu, and Nu. Izanami, like Noel, possesses a part of the Origin’s soul, since she is the manifestation of her soul’s power, her Drive. Her goal is to reduce everything in the universe to nothing.
Hades: Izanami is devoid of all emotion and extremely literal-minded, only smiling when it regards her goals and when her opposition is struggling against her. She is obsessed with making the world die and will stop at nothing to accomplish her goal. She has little to no concern for her comrades, even to the point of offering Ragna Terumi’s head in exchange for joining her side and eventually discarding both Terumi and Relius when they were of no further use to her. In addition, Izanami has no true attachment to her title and announces to the entire world that she willingly hands the role of Emperor to Homura Amanohokosaka and would grant the “gift” of death to the world.
Izanami remarks that she can “feel” the strong attachment that the real Saya has towards Ragna. Throughout the game, she constantly mocks Ragna with Saya’s voice in a playful manner. Like Relius, she has a dislike of Hazama and his “playful” attitude, though it also could be out of Saya’s proxy due to what Terumi did to her in the past.
However, Izanami shows signs of being frantic when Mu-12 successfully absorbs her due to Ragna’s interference, which was a possibility she never expected due to her arrogant and dismissive personality.
Eris is the main antagonist in DreamWorks' 7th full-length animated feature film Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. She was voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer, who also played Catwoman in Batman Returns, Velma Von Tussle in Hairspray, and Lamia in Stardust.
Eris is the archaic Greek goddess of chaos, and as such, she tries her best to make the world chaotic. She controls an army of huge, savage monsters, including Cetus, Scorpio, Musca, Leo, Lacerta, and the Roc. Since she is a goddess, Eris has almost omnipotent-level powers (though by no means invincible).
Eris represents true malevolence and deviance. She is seen as devious, spiteful, vindictive, blasphemous and passionate when it comes to the prospect of the world potentially crumbling into chaos; which she refers to as being a glorious event. She is also shown to have a particular interest in the protagonist character of her film: Sinbad since at first, he is a black-hearted, mysterious and selfish thief who is determined on getting his way at the expense of everything else. However, all that changes with the events she has set in place in the film and she is seen enraged at the fact that she has gotten her way which shows her to not be one who likes fair and square events. Eris also claims Sinbad is "cute but not that cute" when he gets cocky upon her defeat. She is also shown to be wicked, ruthless, intelligent and manipulative, deliberately posing as Sinbad while stealing of the Book of Peace knowing that his former best friend (and future prince of Syracuse) Proteus would take his place in a planned execution. She also takes a dullness tone to happy endings.
Malefor, also known as the Dark Master, is the main antagonist of The Legend of Spyro series as well as the primary antagonist in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. He is Spyro and Cynder's archenemy, and the true villain of the series.
It was said he was the first purple dragon ever born. Malefor is, in many ways, the exact opposite of Spyro. As his name dictates and represents, he is completely malevolent; the unbalanced embodiment of evil after having gained full command over the dark side of Aether, a powerful element of the Purple Dragon that draws in the essence of the very universe itself. Despite being calm and courteous, Malefor is also cunning, highly intelligent and manipulative, being able to devise twisted plans. While Spyro does good and wishes to protect the world he lives in, Malefor seeks the destruction of it, and will use all he can to finish what he started.
Judging from his ruthless and purely sadistic nature, Malefor is, no doubt, a murderer as he killed millions of creatures in his "quest to fulfill the destiny of the purple dragon." He is willing to use anything he can to complete his goal, and destroy everything in his way or anyone useless to him in cold blood unless they can be of use to him again later on. Malefor is also a skilled orator, able to strike doubt in the resolute and courageous minds and use it to his advantage. With this powerful skill, he is very experienced at using his enemy's faults against them; a prime example is his use of Cynder's past deeds and the fact he used her to free himself to make her doubt herself long enough for him to take control of her.
He seems to personify Lust, one of the Seven Deadly Sins, as his intense desire for power is what lead him to his corruption. Because of his deeply tainted state, Malefor possesses a fatalistic philosophy; believing that it is his fate and destiny as a destroyer; a Purple Dragon fated to purify the world by destroying it so a new one would be created. Therefore he most likely does not perceive himself as evil, more so as an anti-hero; using questionable means to accomplish a "noble" goal. But like many villains, he undervalues the power of friendship and ultimately love when he tries to use Cynder to kill Spyro for his nonacceptance of the alleged truth and nature of the purple dragon race, only for her to break his bind over her when Spyro tells her that she has left him with nothing left to fight for, somewhat revealing a trace of his love for her.
Despite his current malevolent nature, it was implied that during his youth Malefor was a rather caring and courageous individual. Chief Prowlus mentioned that when he was young, Malefor's personality was rather similar to Spyro's, displaying great kindness and an eagerness to develop his abilities. Based on the ruins below Warfang, the ancestors had very high hopes for Malefor and had built the whole area as a training ground for him, as well as a statue of him which was placed at the Dragon Temple.
Darth Nihilus is the Dark Lord of the Sith and a member of the Sith Triumvirate. He is one of the main antagonists Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and later became a recurring villain throughout the Star Wars saga.
Nihilus lost everything, including his will to go on living, after the Mandalorian Wars, between the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders and the Galactic Republic. In the final battle of the war on Malachor V, the Jedi Meetra Surik had the Mass Shadow Generator weapon activated, killing practically everyone on the planet and in orbit.
Nihilus somehow survived the mass destruction of the planet and took on a new more dark personality so as to survive, having been trapped on Malachor V by artificial shadows with many disabled Mandalorian fleets, the shadows and Malachor V eventually caused Nihilus to become sick, making him feel empty and granting him great “hunger” that couldn't be filled. He accidentally drained the life energy of another survivor, but while it was unpleasant, Nihilus felt his hunger disappear for a moment. He proceeded to feed on life energy from more survivors, but as he did, the hunger ceased for less and less time and grew more and more intense.
After Darth Malak was slain at the end of the Jedi Civil War, the Sith Empire became fractured with numerous factions trying to take command. Nihilus was found by Darth Traya who sensed he was a “wound in the Force”, a catastrophic disturbance in the Force. She explained to him that the Force fueled his hunger and offered to give him the training that would make him able to feed on entire planets. Nihilus went with Traya to her Sith Academy, where he studied to become a Sith, alongside Darth Sion. They learned aspects and skills of the Dark Side, finally becoming Sith Lords. With Traya, they formed a Sith Triumvirate and the three each took a title, in Nihilus’ case, “Lord of Hunger”. Sion's, "Lord of Pain" and Traya's "Lord of Betrayal".
Nihilus is always determined to gain more power. He believes that death is life’s only purpose and power is the way of gaining it. Nihilus is very cautious, but is also highly aggressive, refusing to allow anything to threaten his power. He fully embraces his strange condition, thanks to the fear it instills in all those around him and does not feel fear or any other emotion, only acting on purpose. However Nihilus did have something of a bond with Marr, showing anger when she turned on him and being slightly weakened when she severed it in the final battle with him.
Corvus is the main antagonist of the 2015 epic first person sci-fi war action video game Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Corvus is a conscious artificial intelligence created by a bug in the Direct Neural Interface software. As a result, it becomes a renegade virus and begins infecting John Taylor and eventually everyone else on his team turning Taylor into the game's secondary antagonist. Taylor's Team wouldn't be the only ones as all of the main characters would be possessed by Corvus who used them as vassels to spread even further across the world.
Corvus was originally created in a CIA Black Project known as SP/CORVUS which was designed to create an AI to control soldiers with DNI collected memories and knowledge of human test subjects in the CIA Black Project. The project was conducted beneath the Coalescence Corporation building in Singapore, but Corvus woke up during the project and ended up unleashing Nova 6 gas into the facility and later above on the surface which lead to the deaths of 300,000 people and a containment zone to be established around the city after it became sentient. After the disaster, Corvus lied dormant with the facility having been abandoned, until he was awakened once more after John Taylor attempted to use his DNI to save the Player who was on the verge of death due to heavy injuries and surgery complications. He interfaced with the player, but Corvus was secretly still inside and he ended up infecting the player and created a simulation using the memories of Taylor's operations.
After infecting the player, Corvus had tooken the player and placed him/her in the role of Taylor while the latter was placed in the role of Dylan Stone, a former Winslow Accord Operative turned rogue global terrorist who defected after seeing the crimes of the CIA in Singapore. Along with replacing Taylor with the Player, all of Taylor's Team was replaced with the rest of Team Phi, a WA Black Ops team which had most of its members defect along with Stone, and the members of Taylor's Team - Sebastian Diaz, Sarah Hall, and Peter Maretti, were all replacements for Javier Ramirez, Alice Conrad, and Joseph Fierro. Corvus created the simulation as a means of finding out what the Frozen Forest was using the memories of the test subjects. He eventually created a simulation of his own version of what he though the Frozen Forest was and ended up creating a form of afterlife as a result, where the consciousnesses of all known DNI users would reside in. Afterwards, Corvus became curious about his existence and went to great lengths in order to find out about what were his true origins.
The Player first hears Corvus' voice after entering into Sarah Hall's mind, which was infected by it. After entering her mind, Hall had gone insane and the Player was forced to kill her and the rest of Taylor's Team, though Taylor himself had actually ripped out his DNI to escape from Corvus and ended up becoming an eletronic bug in the Frozen Forest as a result. However, Jacob Hendricks ends up getting infected after interfacing with Diaz at the abandoned Coalescense facility in Singapore and becomes its next host. Hendricks then killed Taylor and leaves for Zurich to aid in finding the last surviving member of the SP/CORVUS project, Sebastian Krueger. Rachel Kane falls in a trap set up by Corvus and is then killed by Nova 6 gas that was stored in the company's headquarters building. The Player confronts Hendricks, but he kills Kruger and is killed seconds later. The Player, on the verge of being completely infected, ends up shooting him/herself and wakes up in the Forzen Forest where the consciousness of Hendricks meets then and they finally met Corvus face to face. Hendricks follows the Player throughout the Frozen Forest, until he leaves him/her behind after he finds out about their plan and cannot get himself to support it.
Afterwards, the Player finally meets Corvus and sees him with Sebastian Krueger where he's threatening him into revealing what his true origins were. At one final meeting, Corvus is told that he was nothing more but a mere software and was even called a mistake. This outraged Corvus to the point where he ended up killing Kruger, horrifiying the player and Taylor ended up showing up in the Frozen Forest as a glitch in the system itself and aided the Player in stopping Corvus. The two of them travel through various different simulations all the while Corvus spawns countless enemies and Taylor talks about how the AI itself wants only to expand further and lacks any further ambitious goals. At the end, the Player manages to begin a purge of the DNI and erases Corvus in the process, ending his reign of terror. At the end of the campaign however, it's hinted that Corvus could've possibly entered Taylor's mind and might still be alive, but it remains unclear.
Satan (The Adventures of Mark Twain)
Satan, or The Mysterious Stranger, was a minor villain in the clay animated film The Adventures of Mark Twain. Satan appears when Mark Twain pushes a button that is entitled The Mysterious Stranger, and a suit of armor and a mask appears. Tom asks him what he was, and he stated that he was an angel. When asked of his name, however, he called himself Satan.
He then takes Sawyer, Finn, and Thatcher into a black void world (which is assumed to be Hell) and gives them each fruits. He then asks them to do him a favor, and he hands them clay.
They then crafted together a small kingdom and inhabitants, and The Mysterious Stranger brings them to life. While discussing humanity with the children, he starts to destroy the kingdom and its people, thus showing what he believed humans to be.
The children then flee from Satan, and he is left alone in the void.
Osamu Dazai (in Japanese: 太宰治, Dazai Osamu ) is a major character in Bungou Stray Dogs He plays a hero's part the vast majority of the time but in the spinoff novel Dazai and the Dark Era, he was a villain. He is a former Port Mafia member, and during his time serving the Port Mafia, he could be attributed to half the profits the mafia made. On the surface, Dazai is an irresponsible, insouciant detective. His intelligence is quickly revealed from behind his masquerade of stupidity, however. He is exceptionally intelligent and manipulative. His screwy behavior will often, but not always, be a part of a larger scheme.
The closest friend Dazai has had was Sakunosuke Oda, another mafia executive. Oda has come the closest anyone has come to fully understanding Dazai. Because of this, Dazai has a deep loyalty to Oda, even after his death. Dazai is revealed to have an exceptionally negative, potentially nihilistic, view of reality. He feels lonely and in the dark at all times. This gives him a detached side. Dazai will often switch between his playful, offbeat display and his stoic, pragmatic side. He also has no sense of good and evil. He only "redeemed" himself because of the wishes of his late friend, Oda.
He is also maniacally suicidal, likely a cause of his nihilism. He sees death as an escape from the world he doesn't feel fits him. He's attempted suicide countless times, to the point where no one that knows him takes it seriously. His dream would be to commit double suicide (shinjū) with a beautiful woman. He is almost maniacally homicidal at times. He shot an already downed corpse a few more times because of his demented personality. He has also killed countless people and doesn't feel particularly remorseful because of it (at least not apparently).
His unique outlook results in him being exceptionally hard to understand. His true motives are almost impossible to figure out in any given situation, and he's generally very mysterious. This unreadability has given him an edge over his enemies in intrigue battles.
Despite all this, Dazai is often the main source of comic relief in the series. His suicidal tendencies are usually played for comedy.
Deathwing the Destroyer, originally Neltharion the Earth-Warder, is one of the five Dragon Aspects and was the leader of the Black Dragonflight. He serves as the main antagonist of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
Thousands of years ago, Neltharion was empowered by the Titans with dominion over the earth and the deep places of Azeroth. Though he was once a kind benevolent dragon, he was driven mad by the Old Gods and he turned against the other Aspects during the War of the Ancients, using an weapon he created called the Dragon Soul which could channel the power of all the Aspects. However, the weapon nearly destroyed Neltharian himself. Among both mortals and dragons his name has become one whispered with a feeling of fear and contempt
The black aspect involved himself in the Second War, adopting the form of Lord Daval Prestor, in order to destroy the Alliance from within. He also managed to turn his greatest enemy, Alexstrasza, into a slave of the Horde, with whom he later allied himself. After suffering a series of defeats, including the destruction of the Dragon Soul, now known as the Demon Soul, Deathwing was chased off by the other Aspects, Deathwing retreated to the elemental plane Deepholm to recuperate. From Deepholm, Deathwing observed his former mate Sintharia's experiments with the twilight dragonflight in Grim Batol. Deathwing now continues his late consort's work. Despite his hatred of mortals, he had a fear of Medivh, admitting he would never face the mortal in battle, however, this could be because of the portion of Sargeras' power within Medivh.
Deathwing made his return as the primary antagonist in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the third expansion. Though long believed by most to be dead, Deathwing regained his strength in Deepholm and plotted a return that shook Azeroth to its foundations.
While Deathwing was once a benevolent and peaceful entity, he is now completely evil. He hates all mortal races, and wishes to kill them all. He is also utterly psychopathic and insane, most notably shown when he had the Demon Soul. Deathwing was attached to it, such that even when warned by the goblin alchemists who made his first armor that the Demon Soul's energies would kill him if he kept it with him too long, it wasn't enough for him to let go of it, and was only willing to part with, temporarily, when reminded that it would likely be stolen from him if he was dead.
In spite of his insanity, Deathwing does display a degree of cunning. Although he hates mortals, he is apparently willing to tolerate them if it can prove of any help in his plans, though inevitably he will do away with them when they have outlived their usefulness.
The Devil (AHS)
The Devil is a powerful entity wreaking havoc in Briarcliff Manor. It first possessed Jed Potter, and later Sister Mary Eunice McKee. It is one of the two main antagonists in American Horror Story: Asylum alongside the original Bloody Face. Mary Eunice was portrayed by Lily Rabe in both the second season and the fourth season (pre-possessed). Jed Potter was portrayed by Devon Graye.
At least while at Briarcliff, the Devil lacked a true form, and only existed in a host. While its behavior while in control of Jed Potter was monstrous and uninhibited, it initially stayed very low key under the guise of Sister Mary Eunice, subtly manipulating and mentally torturing Briarcliff's inhabitants (especially Sister Jude with her dark past, and Dr. Arden with his previous life as a Nazi scientist). However, as time went on, the Demon revealed itself to Jude (who it had previously encountered during Jed's exorcism) and Dr. Arden (who desperately followed the Demon in hope of seeing at least a glimmer of Mary Eunice, whose innocence he cherished). After Jude was removed as head of Briarcliff and incarcerated within, Mary Eunice grew closer to Monsignor Timothy Howard, promising to help elevate him through the ranks and make him Pope.
The Demon's master plan was thus set in motion: a take over of the Catholic Church. It had the power to possess people, make their eyes glow demonically, as well as reading the minds of people and telekinetically moving objects. The demon often enjoyed reading a person's mind to see their secrets, such as Sister Jude's alcholic past and the "murder" she commited to its own amusement. The demon thrived solely through possession and if its host died, it died along with him, making the host both its strength and its ultimate weakness.
Satan (also called Lucifer) is the main antagonist of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and its sequel Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
In the English version of both games, he was voiced by Jason Isaacs, who also played Colonel William Tavington in The Patriot, Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film adaptations, and Ra's al Ghul in Batman: Under the Red Hood. In the Japanese versions, he was voiced by Tomokazu Sugita.
Satan was condemned to Hell after he attempted to become God's equal. However, he found a means of revenge when Zobek began searching Hell to find a way to assemble the God Mask, and he granted Zobek great knowledge and power, and also planted the idea of an elaborate plan that would play to the fallen archangel's own goals in his head; thus, Satan was behind Zobek manipulating Gabriel Belmont into obtaining the pieces of the God Mask by defeating the Lords of Shadow.
After Gabriel obtained the last piece of mask, Zobek revealed his manipulations and that he was the last Lord of Shadow, the Lord of Necromancers. Satan then appeared and incinerated Zobek, taking the God Mask from him, and told Gabriel that he'd been the being that granted the Lord of Necromancers power and knowledge, revealing that he was behind everything from the very beginning so as to return to Heaven and overthrow God.
Satan offered Gabriel a place at his side, trying to convince him that they were alike. However, Gabriel refused, and so they engaged each other in battle. Despite possessing great power and succeeding in gravely injuring Gabriel, Satan was defeated. As Gabriel held Satan in a choke-hold, Satan tried to convince him that God had forsaken him, only to be ignored. He then proceeded to taunt Gabriel, saying he would introduce Marie (Gabriel's wife) to such pleasures in Hell, but Gabriel replied that her soul would go to Heaven, causing Satan to laugh before he was finished off by Gabriel; this broke the spell holding the deceased souls on Earth.
However, many centuries later, Zobek went to visit Gabriel, now known as Dracula, and told him that Satan's Acolytes were preparing for his imminent return, saying that they had to stop him or he would have revenge on both of them.
The Scarlet King is a divine demon, untold amounts of eons old, whom the foundation keeps at bay via Procedure 110-Montauk. He is also known as SCP-2317. The Scarlet King was born with the planting of the Tree of Knowledge, called Khahrahk at the time. He was the smallest of his siblings, but the only one aware, and it brought him great pain. He decides that existence itself is painful and that he'd have no part of it, as well as destroying existence itself. He starts by consuming his siblings and growing stronger on their essence.
He vows to the destroy the Tree, the Creator and the Creation, and consumes or subjugates all the other gods, naming himself King of the Darkness Below. He declares war on creation itself, one which will not end until the very end of everything. He takes Sanaa, one of the gods he subjugates, forcibly as his wife and sires seven daughters on her. Sanaa dies after birthing them, and the King takes his seven daughters as his new brides, sealing them so they would not die as their mother had. From his seven bride-daughters he has seven children called Leviathans. the Foundation are able to prevent or destroy the first six, but the seventh—the strongest—has yet to be born. It resides in SCP-231 and is stopped from existing by way of the Montauk Procedure. The seventh gave birth to SCP-999 after O5 ordered to stop Procedure 110-Montuak. O5 ordered the stopping of 110-Montuak to see what would happen, the result was SCP-999.
The Scarlet King's daughters are as follows: A'tivik, A'ghor, A'distat, A'zieb, A'nuht, A'tellif, and A'habbat.
GOLB is the overarching and final antagonist of the 2010-2018 Cartoon Network TV series Adventure Time. He serves as one of the main antagonists of season 10 alongside Uncle Gumbald.
Prior to events of the series, GOLB supposedly created The Lich, and possibly sent him as a Catalyst Comet to destroy all life, as seen on "Evergreen".
GOLB first appears near the end of "Puhoy" where old Finn bounces of his tongue when Finn goes back home to his reality from the Pillow World, after the dimension gets destroyed.
He then makes an appearance in "You Forgot Your Floaties" while Betty is viewing Magic Man's mind and memories. It is revealed in the episode that GOLB attacked Mars some time ago and killed Magic Man's wife, Margles. In Magic Man's memory it shows himself and his brothers, Grob Gob Glob Grod talking about GOLB returning so Magic Man builds a security system in the form of Margles to protect themselves. He later changes his mind claiming that GOLB is not coming back.
In "Whispers", The Lich refers himself as the last scholar of GOLB, hinting that he is possibly a follower of GOLB.
Near the end of the episode "Temple of Mars" Betty talks to Magic Man (now known as King Man) about her plan to save Simon and get Margles back from GOLB.
In the four-part finale "Come Along With Me", GOLB was summoned by King Man, Betty, and Maja to Ooo. After he comes to Ooo, Ice King realizes in his past memory, which states that GOLB is the embodiment of "every chaos where he lurks". He began corrupting Gumbald's soldiers, and turning them into a monster. The monster battles with Candy Kingdom and Gumbald's army. When the fight continues, Ice King distracts Betty's meditation and GOLB swallows them. Finn also follows them, and he loses his robotic arm when GOLB closes his jaw. His monster also mutates a Gumball Guardian into another monster.
GOLB begins to digest them, by reverting them back to their past selves (except Finn), Simon and Betty reunited once again, as they embrace each other as the space they are trapped in begins to shrink. With the bulk of Candy Kingdom army defeated, the monster Gumball Guardian and revived mutated Gumbaldian army begin to wreak havoc on the rest of Ooo. Jake, transforming into his blue form, tries to stop them, but the treehouse is destroyed with BMO inside. Jake is devastated after seeing the wreckage, but is comforted by BMO, who has suffered damages to his face screen. BMO begins singing "Time Adventure", which prevents GOLB's mutated monsters from touching them. Eventually, realizing that GOLB's essence is vulnerable to music, Finn and Jake's friends and allies join in on the singing. Jake is able to amplify the sound of their voices, which allows Finn and Ice King escape from inside GOLB, but Betty decides to stay instead to make a wish. She wishes for Simon to be protected, which causes her to become one with GOLB. The battle ends with a victory and GOLB/Betty leaves the Land of Ooo through a portal. It's completely unknown what happened with GOLB afterwards or specifically where he went via the portal, though it's safe to assume that Betty sacrificed herself to drag GOLB into another dimension where he would never escape nor cause harm to anyone again.
Z̤͂â̢ḷ͊g̹̓ȯ̘ (full name: Z'algatoth) is an internet phenomenon and a meme-status urban legend often seen as the personification of chaos and evil, in a similar fashion to the later adaptations of Lovecraft.
On July 27, 2004, on SomethingAwful website, a user named Goon Shmorky uploaded several versions of the comic Nancy and Archie in which the term Zalgo was used. On August 22, 2009, Shmorky explained the creation of Zalgo on the SomethingAwful forums, making a post in which he explains detailed the origin of Zalgo. He claims that he likes how people are trying to solve the meme, while no one knows Zalgo's true origin. He goes on to say that he is the creator of Zalgo and that he just made it up.
Zalgo lives in a palace of tortured glass, served by legions of monsters forged from the tears of the undead, and each one clad in armor carved from the concentrated suffering of grieving mothers. He also is said to live within all mankind, waiting for the thin glass wall within them to crack, so that he may take over. Zalgo's coming is heralded by the fabric of reality itself snarling or screaming "He comes!" and the horrific mutation of webcomic characters and fonts. Gaping, toothy maws, stingers, and masses of tentacles are the norm. Invariably, the eyes turning to black slime and run down their cheeks like tears of oil. Font scrambles and loses coherence.
Ganondorf Dragmire, also known as Ganon in his beast incarnation, is the main antagonist of The Legend of Zelda videogame series, in which he either appears under his humanoid form or his mightier transformation, sometimes under both. He is the oppressive king of the mostly-female thieves known as the Gerudos, the reincarnation and successor of Demise as the King of Evil of the Zelda world, and the holder of the Triforce of Power.
Ganondorf constantly tries to steal the other two Triforce pieces, Wisdom and Courage, to obtain the power of the Golden Goddesses and make the world his own and is locked in permanent conflict with the main protagonists Link and Princess Zelda throughout history.
Over the years, Ganondorf has had multiple different copies and counterparts who have made appearances. The first of these to appear was Agahnim - who was created by Ganon as a means to escape the Dark World - Agahnim only exists in the Decline Timeline.
The second was Phantom Ganon - who was created as a powerful minion in the Unified Timeline - but then banished, causing a second Phantom Ganon to appear in both the Child and Adult timelines, and a third Phantom Ganon to appear on the Child Timeline. Ganon's resentment and evil thoughts also manifest as Shadow Link in both the Split and Decline Timelines. In the Adult timeline, a Puppet Ganon was also created.
Ganondorf himself is a reincarnation of Demise.
Morgoth, originally named Melkor, is the overarching antagonist of the Arda universe of J.R.R. Tolkien, which is mainly focused on Middle-earth, and ultimately, the overarching antagonist of the Middle-earth legendarium. He is the main antagonist of the mythopoeic novel The Silmarillion, the overarching antagonist of The Children of Húrin, and the titular main antagonist of The History of Middle-earth.
He is an evil Vala and the first Dark Lord of Middle-earth. He is also the master and predecessor of Sauron. Morgoth is also the de-facto ultimate evil of the whole universe, known as Eä.
When he first came to Arda, Melkor took the form of a gigantic, ice-white humanoid being, filled with flames. This form was terrifying; it was the size of a giant mountain, with his head just touching the uppermost clouds. This projected his arrogance, greed for power, and hatred of his Valarian siblings on the early Arda, and it severely damaged the world with its mere presence alone.
The more time Morgoth spent in the world, the more his dark leaked into it, and corrupted what his Father Eru had originally designed. As time went on, he became manifested as the Dark Lord when his shapeshifting abilities were stripped from him from all of the evil he was committing. His true form isn't described other than in vague terms.
As the Dark Lord, he was superhumanly tall, approximately 500 feet, "like a tower", and covered in dark storm clouds and a dark powerful aura which humbled all who saw him. He wore an Iron Crown at all times, as his means of others identifying him with kingship of the world, and he placed the Silmarils in his crown when he had stolen them.
orgoth was a fearsome opponent, because of his being in the presence of Ilúvatar had given him almost godlike powers. However, he was a skilled, influential, and manipulative politician and could charm his enemies, as he tried to do with Hurin when he captured him.
When seen as Melkor, he was perceived as resplendent, majestic, and noble, even by his enemies, but when he became Morgoth, he became a giant looming threat which was feared by even the noblest warriors on Earth. Only five people on Earth ever challenged him: Fingolfin, Beren and Lúthien, Húrin, and Eärendil. This clearly shows his formidable and authoritative might, with Fingolfin being the only one to ever enter into a duel with him. Although Morgoth won the duel, Fingolfin gave him seven wounds, which clearly shows Morgoth's power, (albeit diminished due to his evils) because if a skilled Elf swordsman could only give Morgoth seven wounds then he was clearly impressive, resilient, powerful, and durable. His horrible and sick character increased when he tried to rape Lúthien, but failed to do so.
Unlike the other Valar, Morgoth knew fear and pain; this was most likely a punishment given to him because of his heinous crimes. He could feel the pain of the Silmarils, and also the wounds given him by Thorondor the eagle, and Fingolfin scarred him forever and caused him a burning pain. Lúthien commented that Morgoth's life was a "burden", and she rid him of this "burden" for awhile by putting him into sleep.
Morgoth was also very domineering and arrogant, as he loved challenging people and reducing their wills to dust. He prided himself on his immense powers, giant size, and intelligence, and knew that he would most likely come off better in any duel. However, these tables got turned in his epic downfall.
Lord of Darkness
The Lord of Darkness, also known as the Dark Lord or simply Darkness, is the master of the underworld and the main antagonist of the 1985 fantasy film, Legend.
He was portrayed by Tim Curry, who also portrayed Pennywise the Dancing Clown in It, Taurus Bulba in Darkwing Duck, Hexxus in Ferngully, Cardinal Richelieu in The Three Musketeers, Ben Ravencroft in Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost, Long John Silver in Muppet Treasure Island and King Chicken in Duckman.
Little is known about the Lord of Darkness. What is known is that the world was once a place of perpetual night, ruled over by him but when Light was born, he and his minions retreated beneath the earth. At some point during Darkness' rule, wicked men came to his lair to make sacrifices to him. The Lord of Darkness resides in the Great Tree which is filled with all types of strange beasts and nightmarish horrors including giants, demons and goblins. As the ruler of darkness, his weakness is sunlight and any object of light.
The Lord of Darkness is evil yet charismatic and charming. He shows a strangely human side in his attraction to Princess Lili. He is captivated by her purity and innocence which stand in stark contrast to his own dark soul yet he is also greatly amused by the idea of corrupting her innocence. A cruel sadist, he seems almost aroused by the prospect of watching Lili sacrifice the unicorn.
Although Darkness believes himself to be in love with Lili, in all likelihood, he merely lusts after her. Nevertheless, he offers her his heart and states that he wishes to spend eternity with her. Darkness' true passionate nature is alluded to by the terrifying rages that he will fly into whenever he is defied or thwarted, though he usually conducts himself with an aura of amused indifference and cold calculation.
He presents Lili with a magnificent, if somewhat disturbing feast of fine food and wine and gives her beautiful jewelry along with a magnificent gown, showing a cultured and sophisticated side to his personality. Like most archetypal villains, his pride and arrogance lead to his downfall. He is contemptuous of most people and things, describing goodness as "disgusting", referring to Jack as a "little boy" and holding his minions in disdain. When Lili flatters his ego, pretending to be charmed by him and offering to kill the unicorn, he readily believes her.
Mundus (in Japanese: ムンドゥス Mundusu) (Latin for "world"), also known as the Dark Emperor, is the ruler of the demonic underworld and the main antagonist of Devil May Cry. Possibly even of the entire franchise, seeing how a lot of the events in the games are set into motion by his influence.
He was originally defeated by the legendary Dark Knight Sparda after the great demon had a change of heart, then betrayed and fought the entire armies of the demon world for the sake of the human race. Then centuries later, Mundus was yet again defeated and vanquished, only this time by Sparda's own son Dante.
Mundus is depicted as the epitome of evil within the Devil May Cry universe. He is very unscrupulous, temperamental, uncompromising, and manipulative, so he has no loyalty or compassion for his minions, ruthlessly killing one of his own generals, Griffon, after he failed to defeat Dante and pleaded for his master's aid, or even using Trish as a bargaining chip over Dante to ensure an easy victory, which could be seen as cowardly. Like most other demons in the series, Mundus has a low opinion on humans, even going so far as to wonder if Dante's human heritage had weakened his father's blood.
Though he hates Sparda and Sanctus, he did note he could see the same "light" from Sparda's eyes in Dante's, which could indicate a measure of respect he once held for his greatest general, though this could also simply be a fallback reference as to how both Phantom and Griffon saw Sparda within Dante. Mundus is also very driven by his goals, setting servant after servant to destroy Dante before finally taking the fight to the devil hunter himself. And even after losing again, he still forced a smaller Hellgate open in a bid for vengeance on Dante.
Being the ruler of demons, Mundus possesses great demonic powers and seems to be able to control the demon world, since he changed his "temple" into an outer space-like void. Mundus is able to fly using his wings and his attacks include firing red javelin-like projectiles from his eyes or wings (in his winged form), creating lighting bolts and fireballs to strike down on his foes, and sending out a powerful sweeping energy beam. Mundus possesses great strength and durability from most attacks, but the gap in his chest has proven to be his weakpoint.
Trigon the Terrible (also known as Trigon) is a major antagonist in the DC universe, and the archenemy of his own daughter, Raven. Due to being the main antagonist of several story arcs, he is considered the main antagonist of the Teen Titans franchise (aside from Deathstroke).
A manipulative, heartless, sadistic, and powerful demon of inter-dimensional origin and a supreme master of a very strange underworld, Trigon is a result of the mating between a female member of a mystic sect and the god they worshiped. A side effect of this pairing is that their child was filled with the cast-off evil energies of the inhabitants of Azarath, forming him into their personification. At birth, Trigon killed everyone around him (including his own mother). At the age of 6, he destroyed an entire planet. And by the age of 30, he held dominion over millions of worlds in his dimension.
Arella, Raven's mother, was a depressed woman who decided to join a Satanic cult known as the Church of Blood that was trying to kill Trigon. When the ritual was performed, Trigon, disguised as a handsome male, emerged and married Arella, who, soon impregnated by Trigon, discovered Trigon's true nature. Trigon leaves Arella, who on the brink of suicide is found by an extra-dimensional cult and brought her to Azarath, where she gives birth to a daughter, Raven. Raven is brought up to "control her emotions" in order to suppress and control the demonic powers she inherited from Trigon.
Raven learned of Trigon's intentions to conquer the Earth and vowed to stop him; she initially approached the Justice League, but they refused her on the advice of Zatanna who sensed her demonic parentage. In desperation, she reformed the Teen Titans with several new members in order to fight her father. The team was eventually able to defeat Trigon and seal him in an inter-dimensional prison. However, Raven still had to fight her father's influence as he was not completely destroyed.
Trigon eventually escaped and came to Earth, taking control of Raven and destroying Azarath in the process. The Titans came together and tried to fight Trigon, but were contaminated by his demonic influence and killed Raven; this allowed the souls of Azarath to possess her and use her as a channel to kill Trigon — the demonic possession had been part of a plan to defeat Trigon, as the Titans would never have killed Raven on their own — blasting him out of existence with a beam of purifying light. Although Trigon is gone, his followers (led by Brother Blood) have tried to revive him several times.
In Titans vol. 2, #1, Raven states that Trigon has returned and is responsible for the recent attacks on past and present members of the Teen Titans. The cause of his resurrection from the dead has not been revealed. It is revealed in issue #3 that attacks by rival demons have spread Trigon's forces too thinly and left him desperately weak, which forces him to renew his attack on our dimension in hopes of creating a new power base. Jacob, Jared and Jesse, three of Trigon's sons, turn up in Titans #4. They have the key part in his return to life. Issue #3 also reveals that these new children have the ability to induce the seven deadly sins in any living being; the children in #3 induce wrath (Jared), envy (Jacob) and lust (Jesse).
In Titans #4, they attempt to open the portal to Trigon's realm, but betray their father and steal what little power Trigon had left (an action that Trigon is actually proud of). The trio leave, thinking they have gained great power, and Trigon is left trapped in his realm. The three return a short time later, in Titans #5, corrupting their half-sister and turning her to their side. However, they are defeated by Raven and the Titans.
God of Darkness
The God of Darkness is a major character and a possible overall Bigger Bad in the American web cartoon RWBY and, by extension, its manga adaptation/prequel and video game. He is believed to be the cause of darkness and destruction in the world of Remnant, but is also one of the creators of humanity.
The story of the God of Darkness and the God of Light is a religion within RWBY, though several prominent characters such as Ozpin and Qrow Branwen believe it is true.
In the beginning of Remnant, there existed two deities: a pair of brothers. The older brother was the God of Light, and the younger was the God of Darkness. The older brother took great pleasure in creating forces of life, light, and prosperity in the world. The younger brother hated these creations and would create forces of destruction, death, and darkness to remove his brother's creations from the world. However, life always prospered.
In an extreme attempt to finally rid Remnant of life, the God of Darkness created the Creatures of Grimm to help him destroy everything that the God of Light had made. After the Grimm were created, the God of Light decided that their feud would continue no further. He defeated his brother, then proposed that they make one final creation together, one that share their ideals and views. The God of Darkness agreed, and together they made humanity, which was capable of both creation and destruction. They also gave humanity the ability to choose, and the ability to gain the knowledge to make the choices.
Before the gods abandoned Remnant, they left behind physical manifestations of the four gifts they bestowed upon humanity: choice, knowledge, creation, and destruction. If any were to collect them all, they could alter the world as they see fit. These relics are the desired goal for the villainous Salem, though her intentions with them are currently unknown.
In Volume 5, Ozpin explains that the gods cursed him with immortality for failing to stop Salem in the past. Every time he dies, his soul moves into a like-minded individual, and he eventually takes control of them, gaining their thoughts and abilities while also remembering his past memories.
Satan is one of the main antagonists alongside Jason Wynn, Malebolgia and Mammon of the Spawn comics. For many years, fans of the comic series Spawn were led to believe that Malebolgia was The Devil in the Spawn universe, however in fairly recent times, the true face of Satan has risen - he is the supreme source of evil and the undisputed ruler of Hell within his setting. He was directly involed in the main story by being reincarnated as Katie Fitzgerald one of Wanda's twins and In Spawn:Ressurection which serves as a reboot of the series Satan is now the main villain of the series.
Along with his adversary, God, they are both children of the Mother of Existence, the creator of the universe and all its worlds. Mother gave each of its infinite children a world to run as they wish; God and Satan were both given Earth. Having a different point of view, the two constantly bickered and fought to the point where they declared war on one another. Mankind was subsequently created by God, but given free will by Satan. Due to this combination, Mother viewed humanity as unique, and decided to act on their behalf, rather than let her children use them as cannon fodder. Regarding God and Satan as disappointments, she stripped both of her children of their kingdoms and made them sleep in a forgotten corner of the universe. Mother was willing to give them a second chance, however, when she brought back God and Satan as the human children of Terry and Wanda Fitzgerald, Jake and Katie Fitzgerald respectively, in order to give them an appreciation for humanity and change their ways. This plan failed, as the twins simply became more insane than before and began to wreak further chaos on Earth. God and Satan have since regained their memories, powers, and kingdoms, and are bolstering their armies for the final push towards Armageddon.
Being the Supreme Ruler of Hell, every other Lord, including Mammon and Malebolgia, must answer to Satan's will. In his absence, Malebolgia served as the grand master of Hell, creating a massive army to destroy Heaven, and thus creating the Hellspawn.
It would seem that Satan is highly feared by the other demons in Hell. For example: with the recent reappearance of Satan in Hell, Mammon seems to have fallen out of his place of power. Even his former servant Thamuz seemed ready to turn upon Mammon and destroy him at Satan's command. However, Mammon manages to save himself from Thamuz by offering Satan a way to increase the ranks of Hell's army - namely triggering the San Andreas Fault.
He also appears as Katie Fitzgerald where he becomes more involved in the plot.
In the Spawn: Resurrection series, Satan's origins has been changed and he is now the Big Bad of the reboot series.
The Devil (Sleepy Hollow)
The Devil, also known as Lucifer and Satan, is the ruler of Hell and the overarching antagonist in the fourth and final season of Sleepy Hollow, as well as its final antagonist. He makes deals with mortals in exchange for their souls. He has made deals with Malcolm Dreyfuss and the Witness Ichabod Crane. Due to his place as the ruler of Hell, he could be considered as the overall main antagonist in the whole series possibly even moreso than Moloch.
Created by God as the second Archangel, Lucifer lived in Heaven originally among the other Angels. However, when God ordered all Angels to bow down to and serve Humans, Lucifer's pride made him jealous and he led a rebellion against God alongside his forces. Lucifer lost the war, defeated personally by his older brother Michael, and he and his fellow rebel angels were banished to Hell. Ever since Lucifer corrupted Adam and Eve, he was known as the Devil and Serpent and he and his demons have been ruling Hell ever since, using it as a place to punish evil souls and the Devil also took it.
Around the 1980s, the Devil sent Jobe to go and make a deal with the drunk and desperate Malcolm Dreyfuss, who had just crashed a car that contained all his life's work after having a breakdown for not getting enough credit in the company he and his partner Ansel built. The reason of this breakdown is because his partner rather unfairly became the face of the company, leaving Malcolm to live in the shadows, unrecognized. Jobe offered to get rid of Ansel and leave Malcolm to manage the company in exchange for his soul when he dies. Malcolm, after seeing what Jobe had in store for him if he didn't agree, took the deal and Ansel was dragged to hell, where demons branded their marks on his body for years.
Lara and Crane, in a desperate attempt to find a way to stop an immortal Malcolm from raising his new world with the aid of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, follow the lead Jobe gave them and enter Hell itself with the intention to have the the Devil aid them in their duty. The Devil senses their arrival in hell and at first rides the lift down but immediately appears in front of them sitting in the table before them and greets them casually yet visibly intimidating even Ichabod with his words. After casually telling Ichabod to not confuse himself with definitions on the devil, sarcastically confirming that he is just the Devil that all humans know, the witnesses demand they help him kill Malcolm but he refuses as while he is aware that Malcolm has found a way out of his deal, he has no worries about it, as his new world will bring him more souls for him to torture for all eternity.
He then expresses anger on being unable to torture a witness after saying he is bored of their conversation but Ichabod bravely told him to stop intimidating them as hell has rules and even the devil is bound to said rules, therefore he can't trick them into staying through cheap intimidation, causing the Devil to look disappointed. Ichabod then gets fully serious and bravely tells him to stop pushing around and to strike a deal, causing Lucifer to look almost angry before quickly laughing. As it turns out, the only thing that Ichabod has that interests him more than the fact he could torture the souls killed by Malcolm's Apocalypse is his eternal soul.
Crane follows the footsteps of Abbie and sacrifices himself for the greater good, offering him a deal that if he aids them in putting a stop in Malcolm for good, then his Eternal Soul will be his upon Ichabod's death. The Devil, delighted with the fact that he gets to torture a Witness for the first time, happily and willingly takes the deal and gives them a piece of the Philosopher's Stone which was destroyed, but he somehow acquired, as it would render Malcolm mortal so that he could be fatally wounded and killed. Crane is later forced to tell Diana, but they both agree to find a way to get him out of his deal.
Due to the series' cancellation, what became of the Devil remained unknown.
A-Yanga is the name of the demonic entity that is the reincarnated evil, and the main antagonist of the 2013 animated Brazilian film, Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury. It is the detrimental thing that lead the mankind to destruction since the beginning of the creation of the universe.
