Awesome / Johannes Cabal the Necromancer

  • The final chapter sees Cabal get several moments of awesome in his second trip to Hell-he tosses Trubshaw (who had finally come up with a form he had to fill out, being alive) out onto the plains of Limbo to be beaten by the pre-damned; he puts up notices of Slabuth's former name along three circles of hell so he'll be mocked; stomps on the imp who half-possessed him and then finally is able to trick Satan himself, burning up the Whinshaw and Barrow contracts. Its not a flawless victory for Cabal, but its a very happy ending for a man who isn't very happy.
