The Archdevils are the nine major devils who rule Hell. Although they all posses powers akin to godhood, only Asmodeus can be considered a a true deity. The others pay strict obeisance to him, even while they tirelessly scheme against him and each other. Though they are each worshiped individually or as a group on Taranche, organized cults are rare, and cults that operate in the open as accepted churches are even more rare. Those who do venerate an individual archdevil are generally lone cultists who on the surface are normal members of society, while also maintaining small, hidden shrines.
