Bishop Vick: They call me Bishop Vick, Shepherd of the Damned, your midnight guide through our last days here on earth. Do you feel it, brother? The curtain being drawn back at last, drawn back by my hand, by the Brotherhood of the Ninth Circle!
The Fledgling: Last days here on Earth... are you talking about Gehenna?
Bishop Vick: Gehenna? Judgment Day? The Apocalypse? Oh again, brother, you are too indoctrinated into the antiquated beliefs of this material world. There is no rhyme or reason, no all-powerful and terrible gods who watch over their children. You talk of disease... what about the disease that you and both carry, our flesh remade into nothing more than an abomination, feeding on our brothers and sisters like so many cattle? What god watched over me when that demon tore into my neck and made me into this monster you see before you?! No, brother. There is no god who would tolerate such a thing. And so I have become God, and the diseases I carry to the masses will bring about an end of my own making, until we have all journeyed below into the Ninth Circle.
We see their little shadows painting the floor. FEAR NOTHING. FEAR NOTHING.
We read the little one's smartphone exit statement:
"Mom and Dad, don't be sad :) We are not our bodies. We are made of stars. We can be more than stars. We can eat light. Going on a journey, now. Don't cry. THE GREAT MESSAGE is coming. I love you!!!"
—The Buzzing, The Secret World
Those who venerate Ba'al-called-the-Destroyer seek an end to all things, so that their masters might enter into this world and begin again. Such was their goal in the palace of Knossos; such continues to be their goal in the lightless labyrinths and catacombs where they still scuttle in darkness. They do not seek the wanton slaughter of innocents, but rather to inherit the legacy of incessant chaos, and to grant a birthright to the next turning of the cycle of oblivion.
Many among the Baali bloodline who deserve the "bloodthirsty cultist" stereotype with which they are so frequently identified are these "Servitors of the Void," as many are want to call themselves. Militant disciples of ultimate destruction, they have been behind assorted fabrications and folktales about depraved infernalists and demon-worshipers. Indeed, to welcome the coming of their venerated Masters, they engage in blatantly obscene rites and rituals, and even muster great armies - mortal, monstrous or otherwise - in misguided attempts to slaughter entire cities as sacrifice.
