<b>INDIVIDUAL:</b> The <b>Heavenly Lord of Order</b>, <b>Sharshimo</b> is in all likelihood the most powerful of all Divine beings, barring God the Father, of course. He is the master of universal order and divine benevolence.
An absolutely massive being of living inorganic construct, Sharshimo is perched at the center of the Great Chamber of the Cosmos, the expansive uppermost realm of the Heavens from which he keeps watch over the entire Nava–Verse and is responsible for making calls on divine intervention and alerting the rest of the Heavens of great disturbances in the mortal realm.
The physical body of Sharshimo is more than seven miles tall and is entirely extra–extra–corporeal. His overall area of "presence" is even larger. His durability value is immeasurable, and a punch from Sharshimo could literally shatter a planet. He is surrounded by Iofeldas that populate his chamber, whom he lends his energies to, and also is responsible for creating the GaulGaom and Traalstalks, among other high–level angels.
Sharshimo's counterpart among the Four Dark Lords and particular eternal enemy is Genome, the Dark Lord of Corruption and the ultimate evil in the Nava–Verse overall.
<i>The conclusion to the series of entries on Deadly Sin demons.</i>
• <b>Ferekkus (Archfiend of Lust):</b> Alternatively referred to as an “Incubus”, the Archfiend of Lust is unrivaled as the master of his “domain”. The Ferekkus is the only being to which an Amelchya is obedient, and that is capable of engaging in intercourse with one without being reduced to hormonal slime. The Ferekkus are in fact masters over the Amelchya race, with each one having dominion over at least several of the Succubi. Their “Harems” may also include Iltazi. A portion of the life energy absorbed by all Amelchya is transferred to their Ferekkus masters, so that the Archfiends become more powerful as the demons in their harems claim more victims. Amelchya physically require Ferekkus to properly function: engaging in their usual activities without being linked to one causes their own life energy to be drained, and will eventually make them melt in the same fashion as their mortal victims.
The Ferekkus themselves bear the appearance of very large humanoids, averaging three meters, with an organ of unknown purpose superficially resembling a large hat attached to the head and neck, as well as a massive forked double–penis rooted in and hanging from the groin. They have an infinite sex drive and will never orgasm, meaning they can sustain sexual activity indefinitely. This attribute allows them to dispatch an Amelchya, as punishment for insufficient “performance” or for other reasons, by continuously raping her until her body melts after an overwhelming number of orgasms. Technically, it is possible for a mortal to destroy an Amelchya in such a way as well, however there are no verified cases of anyone accomplishing such a feat.
In keeping with his role as an Incubus, the Ferekkus is also known to periodically prey on mortal females similarly to how the Amelchya seduces males, melting them upon orgasm and absorbing their life energy in a nearly identical manner. The amount of power the demon gains from such an act is geometrically greater than the amount derived from each victim of his Amelchya clients, though it is not known what becomes of the female victims’ souls, whereas males are made into spiritual sex slaves of their assailants. Surviving an attack by a sex demon is substantially more difficult for females than for males, as the Ferekkus, unlike the Amelchya, is actually competent in a physical fight and can in fact be quite sadistic in a combat situation, and has a durability value of 2,500. In 99% of documented cases where girls have successfully fended one off, high–caliber weaponry and/or explosives of some sort were utilized.
• <b>Avolfho (Lesser Beast of Pride):</b> A small but ferocious guardian beast that is the pet race to the Shindoke and Hoilidants. It is made entirely of various supernatural metals, is quadrupedal when moving and can retract itself into its spherical torso both for protection and to move around faster by rolling. If they were bigger in size, Avolfhoes would be absolutely terrifying to lay eyes upon, and more than able to hold their own against a Sworkat in a one–on–one battle, but for better or worse, they are no more than two feet in diameter while in sphere–form. Despite its small size, an Avolfho’s metallic body brings the creature’s overall durability value to 750–900.
• <b>Ixcrode (Archfiend of Gluttony):</b> By far the most massive of the seven Archfiends and remotely contested for the title of the most grotesque only by the Zarasadan, Ixcrodes are more than fifty feet tall and twenty–five feet wide, having a durability value of 7,000, and weigh more than ten tons. And that is only taking into account the demons’ actual, visible bodies. The Ixcrode is a sessile beast, being rooted in the ground on the spot where it is born, with the roots, being the creature’s lower extremities, extending for hundreds of feet beneath the surface. Bear in mind that even if it was not rooted into the ground, this disgusting fiend could never hope to move its enormous girth even if it had the strongest legs in the Underworld, and it has none whatsoever. The fact that it cannot move is a good thing for all, including other demons, because from the location of each Ixcrode scattered throughout the vast expanses of the Cycian Deadlands and the Gomorran Desert is a putrid, rotten patch of slimy, squirming half–formed flesh secreting a mixture of rubbery excess fat, feces and bloodstream abscess, that extends in all directions from it for more than a mile, forming a circle of disgustingness with a diameter of double that length. At the center of which, the Ixcrode consumes, digests, secretes, excretes and regurgitates and then consumes again masses of its own demonic bodily juices in a perpetual, stagnating cycle. From the holed tips of the monster’s two enormous drooping appendages, the Ixcrode shoots concentrated jet–sprays of the various aforementioned substances, at a velocity which, combined with the materials’ highly acidic composition, can burn clean, gaping holes through the flesh of most creatures. The pollution caused by all this is, in perspective, comparable to that given off by a concrete pool of the same diameter, six feet deep with a flat bottom, completely filled with concentrated, pure nuclear waste. Only the death of an Ixcrode will bring about the (slow and gradual) evaporation of the foul pit of toxic horror surrounding it, but killing one is no easy task, one major difficulty being the fact that most mortal organisms would die of suffocation and poisoning before the monster even came within view if they attempted to approach it on foot.
• <b>Whebbate (Greater Being of Sloth):</b> One of the only distinctly female demons and a unit with a highly specialized, relatively useful role. Grasping a twin pair of magical staves in the talons of her two tentacle–like arms, each socketed with two huge deep–red rubies by which Primal Energies are channeled to supply the power source for the Whebbate’s unique signature spell, which almost instantaneously sends a single target into REM Sleep, their body going limp and collapsing to the ground, where they will remain incapacitated for at least several hours if not days. If the Whebbate does decide to murder the tranquilized victim, she will usually do so by gouging their face apart with the rough claws on one or more of her four feet. Because the spell takes several seconds to cast and can be rather easily interrupted, most Whebbates rely on stealth while approaching targets, opting not to be detected. Because of this weakness, they are not nor ever should be put on the front lines of large–scale battles, and are always stationed behind cover shields from which they must carefully focus and aim shots of their knockout spell at far–away targets. Whebbates are the size of the average humanoid, have durability values ranging from 600–800, and are fully intelligent and verbally intelligible.
<b>UPPER:</b> <i>Part 1-of-2 of set 5-of-5 of the coverage of Deadly Sin–related demon creatures.</i>
• <b>Netojax (Archfiend of Envy):</b> A sentinel of darkness forged from a collection of some of the strongest compounds in existence, corporeal and otherwise, compacted together around a single bio–mechanical demonic being. The Netojax is truly a force to be reckoned with, a demon of astonishing strength, skill, endurance and intelligence, being much more powerful than it looks. As the Entrorth is to Wrath demons, it is the unquestioned and unmatched being of authority and leadership over all lesser Envy demons, and a fearsome commander in battle. This Archfiend stands out for being the only Envy demon with a corporeal, organic body component, with the extra–corporeal gem–like matter that makes up the entire bodies of the other creatures in the family comprising the Netojax’s exoskeleton, resulting in the demon resembling a cyborg. The organic and inorganic components weave in and out of each other throughout the length of the body.
As can be expected, Netojaxes are the most potent users of Dark Magic. Their bodies are intricately designed to store and attract the most immense quantities of energy possible, and they are constantly glowing and flashing, almost electrically, with power. They are self–trained to perform countless spells, many of which no other known being is capable of casting, and have the unique ability to physically clutch their own energy spheres in their hands. From the hand of a Netojax also protrudes a freely retractable short energy blade, which when fully charged with Dark Magic releases more than one terajoule of heated Infernal Energy into an entity upon physical contact, which would instantly, completely vaporize anything below at least 1,000 durability value. However, channelling this amount of energy into one attack requires intense focus by the user and consumes huge amounts of power from a Netojax’s body, so usually the blade is much less powerful, though still deadly. Netojaxes are highly intelligent and fully sapient, and can telepathically speak to any being in direct contact with it, the meaning of the signals automatically translated into whatever form the particular being best understands.
The Archfiend of Envy’s body ranges from 2–3 meters in height, weighing an average of two tons, though the creature’s self–levitating powers ignore weight. The durability value is above 4,000 if not 5,000. The total population of Netojaxes existing in the Underworld does not reach a level beyond the triple digits.
• <b>Uhrlath (Lesser Beast of Wrath):</b> A tiny yet nonetheless brutal and grotesque creature, the Uhrlath shares many traits with its fellow Wrath demons but is unique in several notable aspects. Uhrlaths appear to function as a sort of leech, latching onto the face or another body part of their victims and sucking out their life fluids with penetrative mouth organs. To achieve this and other tasks, these creatures are endowed with amazing agility and lower body strength which allow them to leap great bounds at extra–mortal velocities towards targets with impeccable precision. Its other means of attack are the double–pairs of pincers that serve as the extremities of all four of its limbs. Another major feature of the Uhrlath’s physiology is its optical anatomy, which consists of two tiny pupils floating in place inside a cavity of strange yellow liquid, somewhat similar to the Errvwarp's brain cavity. Uhrlaths are never larger than the equivalent of one meter, and are usually much smaller, and have a durability value of about 450.
• <b>Torrigark (Greater Beast of Greed):</b> Some say that whenever units of worldly value are lost to oblivion, their fate is to be claimed by one of these beasts. The Torrigark is a massive, hideous and hideously massive creature whose existence is devoted to hoarding treasure, not to be spent for other things of value, but to be kept forever and kept away from everyone and everything else. This monster’s agenda is quite similar to that of the related Penchrett, and in fact the two creatures largely dwell within the same underground expanse of caverns, with the Torrigarks occupying the largest empties of space to accommodate for their size, however the Greater Beast of Greed is many, many times more sinister and, well... greedy. In the Torrigark’s particular case, the primary motivation for collecting treasure is not merely so they can have it, which is the Penchrett’s modus operandi, but actually for the sake of taking from others, so that everyone else has less. Penchrett derive simple pleasure from the possession of treasure. Torrigarks in reality could not care any less about treasure itself; they are actively malicious and sadistic monsters who derive pleasure from making others have less. Any valuable item that is touched by the solid–red hand of a Torrigark is instantaneously corrupted, its value destroyed. Any other being is painfully and brutally burned upon touching it, a burning so severe as to reduce one’s hand to molten nothingness within a few seconds. When one dies, all the treasure it has claimed by touching turns to dust along with the demon’s body.
Extended fully upright, they measure up to ten meters, and their durability values reach upward of 3,500 at maturity.
<b>LOWER:</b> <i>Four random, lesser demon varieties.</i>
• <b>Mumblabong:</b> An animalistic demon that can be found in both the Gomorran Desert and the Cycian Deadlands. It is often incorrectly thought to be a Wrath demon, or even mistaken for an Uhrlath. While sharing a similar overall body structure and shape, the Mumblabong is considerably larger in size and furthermore can easily be distinguished from said creature of Wrath by its three individual eyes, whereas the Uhrlath is basically cyclopic. Its torso is broad and wide, and it has a smooth face but rough and spiky limbs, as well as boney plates near the origin points of those limbs and a single tiny red horn atop its head. Severed, this horn is sometimes kept as a charm of sorts by the intelligent demons of the City of Drenn, and is considered to be of moderate value in their twisted society. Mumblabongs are hostile towards most beings, including each other, by nature, and attack out of an openly sadistic desire to consume the flesh of their victims, rather than traditional, natural hunger. To this end, they have several methods of attack, including biting, slashing, tearing, and most uniquely, throwing their own feces, which can be made to come out of their bodies at will in amounts larger than what they have ingested, and is burningly acidic to the touch, to the point that when left on the ground, it burns a hole through the soil. The Mumblabong's weakest points are its round, bright pink ears; an obscene amount of blood vessels are connected to them, and as a result they will cause the demon to bleed profusely, often to death, if severed.
Mumblabongs possess a durability value of 500.
• <b>Thresprik:</b> A deformed humanoid demon that stands over three meters tall and resides exclusively in the Gomorran Desert Plane. Threspriks have transparent chests revealing the shapes of their skeletons, empty eye sockets which nevertheless still possess sight, bright green rotten teeth, and thin layers of green mold growing on certain parts of their bodies, including the faces. This mold is extremely toxic to mortals, and the mere scent of it can potentially be deadly. One particularly large and thick patch of mold grows on the Thresprik's upper face, including the forehead and space between the eyes. Their arms grow from their backs rather than their sides, while where the arms should be located are instead half–circles of thick, blackened bone that protrude back into the monsters' midsections. Despite originating from a highly inconvenient place on the body, the arms themselves are very long, articulate and useful, and actually reach further down on the body than the arms of most humanoid creatures. The Thresprik's nauseating and distorted humanoid form is reminiscent of that of most Gluttony demons, and its behavior is similar to that of the Chontulon, though not as mindless. They will eat almost anything, and drink the slime found in the Sea of Sludge to sustain themselves. Thus, they are most commonly found near the shores border the Gomorran Desert. Physical contact with pure water actually burns their flesh; with this in mind, it is thus logical that their main drinking fluid is basically the exact opposite of pure water.
The Thresprik's durability value is exactly 1,000.
• <b>Inzincator:</b> This thing isn't actually a demon at all. Rather, it is the only "species" in existence that is known to have been created by a Primal Deity. The Ggellod of Ergnoplis, however, was probably Primal in origin. Not long after the Great Kindling (the creation of the Nava–Verse), while the first humanoids were still in the process of being created, these mysterious creatures were found inhabiting several otherwise completely barren planets that had yet to be terraformed. It was discovered that they were created by the first Primal Deity to ever exist in the Nava–Verse, who was able to create life so easily due to the fact that the Nava–Verse had just been created, and the laws of its reality had not yet fully taken hold; thus, reality was easier to alter. The name of this deity is now lost, for it was swiftly not only dealt with by angels, but destroyed under such ceremonies that it was wiped from existence completely; the deity's very soul ceased to exist. However, their creator's utter destruction did not get rid of the Inzincators, and as wiping them all out manually would be too tedious, the angels went to God the Father and urged Him to perform a miracle doing away with all of the strange creatures, which He did; God transported every Inzincator to the Underworld, where they became honorary demons and remain to this day.
Physically, the Inzincators are short, square creatures with a distinctive "Primal" appearance; they have short legs with decent feet, pairs of horns, and long, wacky, waving, flailing purple arms. They are sentient but not sapient, and are moderately aggressive and hostile omnivores that tend to stick together in small groups. Whenever Inzincators attack, they "announce" their doing so with a loud, throaty howl. Their durability value range is 600–800.
• <b>Ethmacrodon:</b> Elusive, docile demons that exist only within the Catacombs of Greed, and are rare even there. They are more often than not found in the particularly deep parts of the catacombs, where the temperatures are so high that the heat even starts getting to the Greed demons. But the Ethmacrodons do not mind the heat at all; in fact, they have no sense of temperature whatsoever. One was once captured alive, and when immersed in lava during an experiment, the creature was completely unharmed and didn't even seem to notice the immense heat it was surrounded by. Ethmacrodons are small quadruped hellhounds with three dimly glowing blue tentacle–like tails, third eyes on the tips of their tongues, and blue crystalline structures growing upon their backs. Unlike practically all other demon types, they are totally harmless in and of themselves and aren't even carnivorous, for their diet consists of rocks and jewels. Their mouths are toothless but their gums are very acidic, enough to dissolve solid stones like sugary candies, but the contents of the mouths themselves (including the eyes on the tongues) are immune to this acidity. It is unknown how Ethmacrodons come into being, for the "birth" of one has never been witnessed. They have no sexual organs or other indicators of gender, so it is almost certain that they don't reproduce in the same way that normal creatures do, and they probably "appear" from nothingness or out of inanimate entities like many other demons do.
The crystal structures on the backs of Ethmacrodons contain large chunks of pure and genuine gold, which is appropriate considering the demons' location in the Catacombs of Greed. However, the blue crystals themselves in which these golden nuggets are embedded are actually of more value (to demons, at least), for when ground into powder, said crystals become a potent methamphetamine that, when ingested, heightens senses to euphoric levels and also triggers vivid hallucinations based on the user's deepest, usually sexual, desires of what they most want to see. And this is where the sinister element of the seemingly harmless Ethmacrodon comes into play (you didn't think that there would exist a demon with nothing evil about it, did you?). This crystal drug has no negative effect on demons, but is highly addictive, dangerous and potentially deadly to mortals. Demons crave it and hold it in high value, while in the mortal realm it is even higher in value, despite its harmfulness and illegality on most planets with organized systems of law and due to its extreme rarity and difficulty in acquiring.
The durability value of the Ethmacrodon is 350.
