Now I'm not sure if Infernal Gods fell through, but I know it's already been agreed upon that their is a God of Evil and a Goddess of Good so I decided I would espouse further upon them both.
The Abominable The God of Evil
The Mirror That Reflects The Sin, The Mirror That Reflects The Folly, The Mirror That Reflect The Darkness, The Dark Mirror, Lord Of The Guilty, Lord Of Guilt, Guilt
The cynic says "Good cannot exist without Evil." But this is not true. The concept of Evil exists because of the concept of Good, because mortals bother to tell the difference between right and wrong and feel guilty
whenever they choose wrong.
There, right there, is the gist of it. The Abominable is not truly the God of Evil, he is the God of Guilt. He is the internal recriminations of every good man. He is the Celestial Cauldron of Self-Loathing and it comes as no surprise then that he went mad eons ago.
The Gods of Temptations, of Lust and Greed, of Wrath and Pride, indeed exist but none thinks of themselves as evil. They are the Id and the Ego, the desire and the justification man makes to do bad things. Proceeding them almost always is the Superego, the Guilt. In this way, the Abominable is mightier then the God of Temptation which is important.
Through force of his might, he gathered the Gods of Temptations to himself, the sources of who he was, of all that he loathed and he bound them to his hate. He created his own Hell in the Aether to which he gathered souls like-minded to his his prisoners and like the gods he captured he worked out his self-loathing upon them with torment.
He is responsible for the birth of many Fae Demons, born from his recriminations they manifest into the Material to torment mortals, to torment all of this guilty world. Some seek religion and philosophy, ironically enough, to help them define what is evil and guilty, attaching and establishing themselves as boogeyman to profane and defile.
When the Abominable chooses to manifest, it will be in many shapes. Often though, he is seen with a beast on a chain leash, known to be a manifestation itself of the Hunter of the Damned, Watchdog of Thoughts.
The Amenity Goddess of Good
The Lighthouse That Guides To Perfection, The Lighthouse That Guides To Virtue, The Lighthouse That Guides, The Lighthouse, The Lady of Angels, The Lord of the Angelic Host, Virtue
Their is a reason none know her name, for has yet anyone truly been able to define 'Goodness'? Their are many religions and philosophies that believe they have but if any have truly found it, The Amenity has kept silent about it. Nearly all worship worship her though, a variable ideal to each of them of perfect virtue, free of the pains of sin. In place of her, many gods set themselves up as intermediaries, that their way is the true way to The Amenity.
Fae Angels are born of her and those not many seek to join her. Even to her children though, she is distant and they must seek out philosophies and religions to attach themselves in an attempt to grow closer to her.
The Devils Viceroys
Fae born or followers of the Gods of Temptations, carrying upon them the curse of the Abominable. Demons and Devils hate each other but are often lumped together because the Abominable torments both equally. Demons exult in their nature, the curse of the Abominable, Devils try to hide it. Their are means though to make the Abominable's curse shine through and reveal a Devil for what it truly is.
They are, of course, are Tempters, that's what they do. They are Shoulder Devils although any mortal they particularly attach themselves too will attract the attention of a Shoulder Angel to oppose their advice. And soon enough, a Neck Demon, to breath down the mortal's neck with promises of suffering.
Their Material existence is outlawed in many places. A notable exception is the Black Empire, where they are called 'Viceroys' and are more heavily taxed and monitored.
