Abraxus (pronounced a-BRAHK-zuhs) is called "The Master of the Forbidden Lore", Demon Lord of Forbidden Lore and Magic. He is said to know countless magical formulae, spells and secrets. He specializes in magic and lore associated with pain and devastation. He dwells in Diovengia, capital city of his Abyssal Realm of Pleroma.

HistoryEdit

Abraxus is one of the oldest demons of the Abyss, though he was never a Qlippoth (the creatures that existed within the Abyss before demons). Abraxus has watched throughout history and gathered dark arcane secrets from countless ages, including many magics best left forgotten.

RelationshipsEdit

Serpentfolk traditionally worship their own god, Ydersius, but, especially since the latter god's fall, enmity exists between the god and the demon lord over whom serpentfolk should worship.

Appearance and ManifestationEdit

Abraxus is an utterly demonic in appearance; he possesses the head of a fanged, deformed bird with a tooth-filled mouth and lizard-like crest behind his head. In place of his legs Abraxus has a pair writhing vipers each with its own head and poisonous fangs.

Abraxus' torso is humanoid and with the exception of his viperous legs and demented head so is the rest of his form. His two arms end in large claws that wield a flail (Abraxus' favored weapon), and a shield. Some sources replace the flail with a whip that is forked like a serpent's tongue.

Worshippers and FollowersEdit

As a Demon Lord, Abraxus has all the power of a minor godling. However, he has no organized church. Rather, he is worshipped by separate and varied cults filled with morals who seek to know that which should not be known by anyone.

Abraxus is also worshiped in The Lands Below among the Drow, especially those who have access to darkened vaults filled with forgotten secrets. Abraxus is also venerated by evil spell-casters and scholars seeking forbidden knowledge at any price. Abraxus' following is particularly strong in the city of Danicor in the Broken Kingdom, where his worshipers control a hidden library called Scrivenbough filled with rare books and scrolls.
