** ''Curse of the Crimson Throne'': The followers of Zon-Kuthon, God of {{Envy}}, [[TortureTechnician Pain]], [[CastingAShadow Darkness]], and [[DespairEventHorizon Loss]] tend to be a nasty bunch, with a penchant for torture and self-mutilation. Yet not a one of them, including quite possibly Zon-Kuthon himself, has ever come close to the level of atrocity perpetrated by [[DarkMessiah Kazavon]], Zon-Kuthon's one-time [[TheChampion Champion]]. Essentially [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Vlad the Impaler]] in the form of a sixty foot Blue Dragon, Kazavon disguised himself as a [[PsychoForHire human mercenary]] and offered to help the nation of Ustalav drive out the invading Orc hordes. Upon his victory, Kazavon set himself up as the dictator of the borderlands area, where he ruled with an iron fist, torturing to death all those who disagreed with him, including many of the soldiers who had served him faithfully up to that point. When his employer tried to rein him in, Kazavon flayed the man alive. He would go on to achieve truly special heights of depravity, holding torture parties, and orgies involving the undead, spreading his influence throughout the entire area, and having entire villages [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled for his entertainment]]. Kazavon was eventually killed by a party of heroes, but the madness didn't stop there. The pure evil of his soul contaminated his skeleton and threatened to resurrect him. The bones were crafted into seven [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts Of Doom]] and hidden throughout the country; contact with even one of them is enough to drive the wearer down a path of madness, murder, and ultimate self-destruction. When [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Ileosa]], BigBad of the Adventure Path dons the crown, Kazavon influences her to murder her husband, turn Korvosa into a PoliceState, unleash a plague against the [[KillThePoor city's poorest citizens]], and drain the lives of thousands in an effort to [[ImmortalityImmorality gain eternal youth]] (in reality, the spell will just [[BackFromTheDead resurrect Kazavon]]).

She seduces her husband's deformed stepbrother in order to assassinate her husband, then has him killed to tie up loose ends. She then proceeds to frame an innocent girl for the murder out of petty jealousy. After the scapegoat escapes, she unleashes a plague on her own city with the express purpose of killing off the minority populations in Korvosa (specifically Varisians and Shoanti), along with anyone she deems not to be important, quarantines an entire section of the city, leaving it in the hands of madmen and criminals, and begins to institute a PoliceState in Korvosa by kidnapping, torturing, and brainwashing women from the Korvosan military to create her own personal army. The Commandant of the Sable Company tries to kill her when she replaces his forces with her own, but his crossbow hitting her square in the head doesn't even phase her as she publicly murders him. Finally, she attempts to use a Thassalonian artifact to make herself immortal by killing thousands of random Korvosans, along with all of her own followers. In the end these actions weren't Kazavon's but hers, he simply gave her the courage and power to carry them out.

** Pathfinder's evil deities can be a bad lot, but none are quite as horrible as archdaemon and Horsewoman of War Szuriel. A former paladin, Szuriel became a conquering empress who had every member of her former faith crucified in revenge for her excommunication. Following her death, she became a daemon, and murdered her way to the top of Abaddon's hierarchy, eventually slaying the previous Horseman of War and taking his title. In her new rank, Szuriel represents war at its most terrible, celebrating societal breakdowns, scorched earth campaigns, and ethnic cleansing, and counting Insane Admirals, General Rippers, and Sociopathic Soldiers galore among her most devoted followers. Hiring out her daemons to those who pay the most, Szuriel inevitably turns on her employers, after forcing the campaign to degenerate to the point where mutual genocide is the only way it can end. Forging weapons in the heat of burning human souls, and revelling in violent excess, Szuriel demonstrates what happens when a PhysicalGod adopts the mentality of the most sadistic PsychoforHire.

* LGBTFanbase: The developers have stated their intent to appeal to a wide variety of players, regardless of race, gender or sexual preference, and have designed several characters to represent that variety.
** Since the RuleThirtyFour, there's been a surprising degree of internet support for the Valeros/Imrijka pairing.

* FridgeBrilliance: Why does Pathfinder invoke LovecraftLite despite being the DarkerAndEdgier counterpart to TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons? Because it's only logical to do so! Most of the horror for Lovecraft's characters comes from the sheer shock in seeing such alien creatures and experiences, which so drastically contrast their understanding of reality[[note]]arguably, ValuesDissonance plays a big part in the horror, too[[/note]]. However, the inhabitants of Golarion -- or, really, ''any'' [=D&D=]-ish setting -- have a far, far broader view of reality than 1920s-ish humans do. When your neighbor is a youthful girl who has outlived two generations of your family, your other neighbor is able to twist reality to his whims with some mumbo-jumbo and funny gestures, and your king could well be massive, nigh-immortal, immensely powerful dragon, something like a Mi-go doesn't stand out that much. The world is so full of strange and twisted lifeforms that creatures of the Mythos simply aren't any stranger than anything anyone's already seen. Add to that the fact that killing such creatures is bog-standard, and Mythosian monsters lose yet more of their power to scare the denizens of Golarian. By the standards of a basic Lovecraft hero, a Golarion adventure engages in DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu every time he cuts down a raging orc warrior or a drow or, heck, even a goblin.
