Appearance[edit | edit source]

Nergal has a golden glow around him which shows that he is a god.. He's a bearded fellow with a nasty scar on top of his left eye and likes to wear the dark colours of his friend Mardük.

Personality and Traits[edit | edit source]

Ambitious and cruel. Sometimes displays senility but it might only be a ruse to make his enemies relax before he strikes them down. However, he isn't fool-hardy as he prefers using hosts to fight in the Land of the Living instead of manifesting in his own godflesh.

Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]

Nergal is an elder warrior god and is thus the most powerful living god of the existing Pantheon. His strength is so immense that even when he's merely possessing a mortal it takes two god-possessed mortals to take him down. He has forged a fiery sword named Apocalypse which he lends to his most bloodthirsty clerics or manifests it himself if he possesses any of his followers in combat.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Artemicia[edit | edit source]

She's Nergal's daughter and just as bitchy as he is.

Fasthold f'Armagnac[edit | edit source]

Nergal's former high cleric who got his ass beaten by Yoshimuriko.

Hephaestus[edit | edit source]

Nergal and Hephaestus cannot stand one another, and they often disrupt each others' plans. Hephaestus is more playful of the two, though, but Nergal's seeming senility might only be a ruse to wait for a moment when Hephaestus is off guard.

Mardük[edit | edit source]

One of the few gods to match Mardük's cruelty, Nergal was the ideal ally as War breeds Chaos and vice versa. Nergal was willing to follow Mardük for the sake of battle, and Mardük appreciated the armies that Nergal commanded. The two were a truly horrific duo whom few dared to challenge directly. Nergal is so devoted to the idea of Chaos that he continues Mardük's plans to this day.

Shakkan[edit | edit source]

Nergal's brother. The two really don't get along and are eager to beat the crap out of each other whenever they can. It stems from an old rivalry when Nergal wanted to wipe out Shakkan's children, the Sirithai, after the War of the Andain.

Tcha Khan[edit | edit source]

A high-ranking cleric who helped spread Nergal's religion in Aison. He was the mastermind behind the Magestar insurrection and later helped Yamato invade Aison before he was reportedly eaten by a dragon.

Varalia Earthhaven[edit | edit source]

Once a clerics of Nergal, she has begun working for the Grey Cult after the Cataclysm. However, Nergal hasn't forgotten her, and she hasn't forgotten his teachings.

Yoshimuriko[edit | edit source]

Nergal's current high cleric who is one of the most powerful people to serve Nergal ever despite his age.
