These TrueNeutral beings wield Concordant Greatswords that are simultaneously holy, unholy, axiomatic and anarchic, know powerful magic like ''blasphemy'', ''dictum'', ''holy word'' and ''word of chaos'', and can shift their magical defenses to protect them against foes of a certain alignment.

** A nonliving example would be the physical copies of the Pact Primeval, stored in Mount Celestia, Mechanus, and the lowest reaches of the Nine Hells of Baator.

Mortal characters who encounter this aura must make a saving throw or become ''confused'' at its oxymoronic nature, but outsiders suffer a more drastic reaction - devils may suffer a spontaneous demotion to a lower rank of baatezu and will eventually dissipate entirely. Thus, Asmodeus guards his copy of the Pact Primeval with exclusively mortal cultists.
