Still a WIP, but this is something I have so far for Haagenti.
| "Great President" | "Beastmaster" |
Standing at 2 meters tall from head to feet, Haagenti's body is comprised of a mishmash of various bestial characteristics. He has the skeletal head of a wilderbeest, with glowing red eyes and sporting long hooked horns. He also has a strong humanoid physique, with hair and protruding spiny plates running down his upper body and thick leathery skin that coats his inner torso. Two crow-like wings jet from his broad shoulders, which unfortunately do not allow him the power of flight. He also sports clawed hands, bovine-like hooves, and has a long reptilian tail that ends in a club of fur.
Haagenti's seal can be found on his forehead, however it is only visible when it glows.
Bestial Corruption: Having the unofficial title as "Beastmaster", Haagenti has the ability to possess and/or control nearly any non-sentient, organism within his nearby vicinity. The beasts under his control turn into hideous monstrosities and are buffed significantly to become formidable units in his ever growing army of demonic monsters. He is also capable of manipulating non-hellish low-sentient beings - those more creature than man - albeit usually with the help of a ritual. He is unable to manipulate a pure-blooded human or anything with a higher sentience and sense of free-will by himself.
Gold Transmutation: With any metal he comes across, Haagenti can touch it and have it turn into pure gold. Many of his followers claim that he has the "Midas Touch" - with some claiming that he had direct influence the legendary Greek King Midas, who too was said to have utilized the same ability.
Alcoholic Transmutation: Haagenti can turn water into wine or other alcoholic beverages and turn them back into water.
Subject Mastery: Under request of the conjurer, Haagenti is able to provide instruction for the individual upon any subject who requests it under a given price. Of course, the more archaic or hazardous the subject is, the heavier the exchange is. He can teach the conjurer only one subject for free per session, which afterwards the conjurer must make the necessary sacrifices in order to learn a new spirit of its desired knowledge.
Being within the lower leadership ranks in Hell, Haagenti realizes that sheer brawn and mass alone won't be enough to survive the wrath of the upper demons. As a result, he has adapted to utilize himself as more of an asset to those willing to invest in his services for one's conquest of Hell. Despite his intimidating stature, he speaks in a deep yet calm voice of reason when speaking to his fellow demon clients or conjurers. Yet during his eons of serving under the heels of powerful demon kings, dukes, and princes, Haagenti has grown to be cautious in his dealings. He believes to be a necessary stance to survive in an ever shifting landscape; which is already heightened upon the disappearance of Lucifer himself.
Yet Haagenti's fondness of self-preservation doesn't halt him from engaging in high-risk, high-reward opportunities that can boost his acclaim, services, and/or resolve. Being the betting man, if he believes a certain cause to be extremely beneficial to him, he will allow anything just to reap the rewards. This track goes both ways, either as a means to enhance a mutual or symbiotic relationship, or as a means to cut the competition ever so slightly. However, if the demon believes that his services are being abused or perhaps heading in the direction of his own self-termination, he would not hesitate to pull out of the deal, either abandoning his clients or straight up killing them if he deems them to be too much of a threat.
Himself; Haagenti offers his services to the highest bidders. Once an ally of Lucifer, his disappearance had provided ample opportunity to make a profit amongst the chaos. While he'll ally to anyone who he deems worthy of reaching the throne, he's very cautious regarding his own safety and power. If his allies are honorable and keep to their word, Haagenti will prove to be a useful asset in one's conquest of Hell. But if Haagenti sense any signs of treachery or weakness within his parters, the demon won't hesitate to take matters into his own hands and eliminate any who he deems unfit to rule, or simply withdraw his services from them last minute, given the circumstances.
Haagenti has control of 33 legions of demons - almost all being comprised of animalistic and bestial figures of many different shapes and sizes.
Stalking the Molten Fields of Tartarus, the Abaddon Rex is a gargantuan alpha predator once thought to have been extinct since the end of the Mesotanic Age millions of years ago. Once a member of the surface-dwellers, its bones had since been extracted from the mantle of Earth and reforged within the Lazarus Pits as an attempt to reforge the beasts for war. However, they failed to control the beasts, in which they violently freed themselves and destroyed the research complex before making their way out into the Hellish realm.
Many demons have since tried to tame the Abaddons, whether it be by physical or psychic means, yet each attempt failed horribly. Their immaculate size and strength were far too great and their minds were fortified with a craving for raw, overwhelming violence. Yet the Beastmaster himself would find himself successful in claiming one for his own. Being the first individual to have found an Abaddon egg, he rose and took care of his ravenous pet for eons - eventually coming to utilize him as its personal steed and brutal enforcer.
An ancient race found deep in the hallowed grounds underneath Greece, the Minotaurs are a tribal and barbaric group of warriors who's culture is purely engrained in combat. More animalistic than man, they were an easy race for Haagenti to conquer and reforge them into even stronger warriors - making them a staple in his army. This, along with Haagenti being part bull himself made it even easier for him to instill his leadership amongst them as they looked to him as if he was their god.
Also in the addition of Astaroth, I might even pick PresidentHaagenti as a second demon to play. If so, I might make a demonic minotaur race that would serve him (perhaps alongside animal/creature-based demons too)...
And if he gains enough tech from the humans, he might create those cyberdemon tyrants too...
Edit: Hover over "Haagenti" and you will find that I added another pic of how he could look like - one probably more accurate to the real thing.
@Lmpkio I can actually supply art if needed, I have an illustrated copy of Ars Goetia that I consider to be on-point for this RP's aesthetics.
I'm not going to have specific demands for your demons, only understand that your characters were most likely originally Old Testament angels, and so your characters' appearances may be somewhat, abstract.
An Ars Goetia illustrated copy you say? Well, you certainly are prepared in that front!
Regardless, I think I found a suitable pic for Astaroth and will begin a profile as soon as the sheet is up. Although Im curious about the pictures in your possession - do the demons look like this or something else?
