[[folder: Magog (aka "Magilla")]]

Big and brutal, Magog is the heavy hitter of Tessa's crew, resembling a monstrous gorilla. He's fast and tough and hits like a freight train, but is very unsubtle, and abuses his hosts viciously, to the point that they are just animals.

The Fallen within Nicodemus's coin.



* AttackAttackAttack: Magog does not win points for being clever or quick-witted. His response to most threats, whether they be a SquishyWizard or the most powerful assassin in Summer, is to charge straight at it and plow it under.
* TheBrute: To Tessa.
* LightningBruiser: Harry notes that he moves ''fast'', and his reaction time is "almost nothing."
* MuggingTheMonster: In ''Small Favor'''s climax, Magog picks a fight with the eldest Billy Goat Gruff - Champion of Summer, the Leanansidhe's opposite, and slayer of three Senior Council members. Despite the Gruff's repeated insistence he's got no quarrel with Magog. It goes... poorly.

* AttackAttackAttack: Magog does not win points for being clever or quick-witted. His response CastingAShadow: Rather than allowing his host to most threats, whether they be a SquishyWizard or shapeshift, he gives Nicodemus control over shadows, which allows him to cover and manipulate an area around him, to creating wings with which Nicodemus can fly.

The Order of the Blackened Denarius is an ancient order of humans who have taken up one of thirty silver coins, believed to be the ones paid to Judas, and each of which contains one of [[FallenAngel the Fallen]]. In exchange for unnaturally extended lives and superhuman power, the Denarians either work with or serve as vessels for each Fallen - and each Fallen invariably corrupts its bearer. The Denarians themselves are not a unified force; generally, one group works with Nicodemus, one works with Tessa, and the rest do their own thing, but they are all devoted to spreading misery, pain, and despair, thanks to the Fallen controlling or working with them.

* IronicName: Nicodemus is also the name of a character from Literature/TheBible; a Pharisee who became one of {{Jesus}}' followers. He helped prepare Jesus for burial after his death. Considering what ''this'' Nicodemus is like, and how in his first appearance he's after the [[PublicDomainArtifact Shroud of Turin]], it's a somewhat unusual name to choose. See MeaningfulName, below, for justification.
