Gods of Good

Colloquially known as "The Light" they are the divine good of Algoron, working to protect the people and see they live happy, full lives.

  • Big Good: The biggest in DSL. Lampshaded by the kender’s name for him, “Big A”
  • Cain and Abel: Some version of the story seem to suggest Necrucifer and Austinian are this. Obviously, Austinian is the Abel. That may make him the Eldest deity short of the High God himself.
  • Dragons Are Divine: Has occasionally been referred to as the Platinum Dragon, and envisioned as such as one of his Avatars.
  • Foil: To Necrucifer. The Light to his Darkness. Later becomes this for Drakkara, the new ruler of the Dark Pantheon.
  • God of Good: THE definitive example in DSL.
  • Good Shepherd: Arguably the definitive example in Dark and Shattered Lands, Austinian leads by example, protects his people, nurtures them, provides his wisdom, and helps them achieve their potential. Fittingly, he's commonly depicted as being closest to farmers and people of the land every bit as much as he is with the bravest of Paladins and most noble of Metallic Dragons.
  • Happily Married: With Taliena. Doesn’t hurt she’s the actual Goddess of Love.
  • I Have Many Names: The kender call him Big A, on Shokono he’s known as the Heavenly Emperor, and then his faithful sometimes call him the Platinum Dragon.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Patron deity of the Knighthood, particularly the Crown Knights.
  • Light Is Good.
  • Light 'em Up: His primary means of fighting, the raw, untamed power of the sun in the palm of his hand.
  • Right Makes Might: Firmly believes and practices this, and rewards and praises based on morals and good character as much as actual accomplishments.
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Humility. By rights, one of the three most powerful deities in existence. In practice, one of the most down to Earth deities there is.
  • The Older Immortal: With Necrucifer and Kwainin. The original Trio.
  • The Paladin.
  • Warrior Poet: Sometimes depicted as this, seeking peace over war yet being willing to fight.
  • What You Are in the Dark: What Austinian preaches above all, that people must be Good because they know it is right, not because others are watching or there is pressure to be good. Also follows it himself, when faced with the decision to kill Malachive as an infant deity, he chose to spare him instead. History will tell whether or not this was the correct choice, but most seem to agree it was.

  • Depending on the Artist: Sometimes appears fiery red of hair, sometimes appears platinum blonde. Most artists, however, agree she’s more of a strawberry blonde, a mix of red and gold. Not that such generally applies to divine beings in any case.
  • Foil: Drakkara, primarily. To a lesser extent was this to Mencius, the love to his hate.
  • Fiery Redhead: Sometimes depicted as red haired and passionate, but more tempered than most examples.
  • God Couple: With Austinian.
  • Goodness Equals Beauty: Part of her preaching.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Often depicted as hair of platinum blonde, and definitely one of the most kindest and compassionate of any god you’re likely to meet.
  • Happily Married: Again, to Austinian.
  • Healing Hands: Works to heal the injured. Moreso now that her eldest daughter Siccara has perished and Tailena has graciously taken on her portfolio of Healing.
  • Hot Goddess: Arguably the most beautiful of all of them, tempered by a motherly, mature aura.
  • Light Is Good.
  • Love Goddess: Love and Beauty are her domains, and she takes both very seriously.
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Chastity. Despite being a loving wife and the mother of two sons and two daughters, Taliena embraces a wholesome, pure sort of love for her family and the faithful.
  • Woman in White.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Devion, who took his sister. Nadrik got her back, then took his hand for good measure. Few Gods actively hate one another the way these two do.
  • Foil: To many of the Dark Gods, most of his virtues oppose theirs, but prominently Fatale. Like him, he is the eldest son of his divine pantheon, but Nadrik is an honorable, dutiful paladin compared to Fatale's more ruthless, murderous nature.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Can sometimes be seen as rather brutal in his crusade against evil, and it is arguable that most of the darkness fear him even more than his father.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: One of the Knighthood’s patron deities (Lance, specifically), and frequently appears to take this sort of Avatar as well.
  • Light Is Good.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: He (and his followers) can be rather judgmental and zealous when it comes to wiping out evil doers.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Previously was trapped on the black moon by the Dark Pantheon. His mortal followers were working to free him, and eventually succeeded, though at a terrible cost.
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Diligence. Upholds his duty and sees his tasks through to his completion.
  • The Lancer: To Austinian, serving as his number two. Appropriately, the mortal Knighthood order named in his honor are the Lance Knights.
  • The Paladin: Arguably moreso than his father, Nadrik is the God of Paladins, embodying their courage, strength, and honor.
  • The Strategist: A military man, he knows how to organize for warfare.

    Siccara (Deceased
  • Foil: To Fatale, the healing to his harm. As well as to Dragoth, the cure to his disease.
  • Healing Hands: All Gods can grant healing powers to their faithful, but Siccara taught and preached to know other ways to heal and mend than just simple spellcasting. Including the mind and soul.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Saved her brother Nadrik’s life at the cost of her own, and perhaps even more than that, since her final act was to take Mencius (intentionally) and Necrucifer (unintentionally) with her, seriously crippling her families enemies.
  • Killed Off for Real: Murdered by Mencius, though she used her final act to take him (and Necrucifer) with her. Her portfolio was subsequently absorbed by her mother Taliena.
  • Lady of War: While not the most combative of Goddesses she did serve as a patron deity for the Knighthood (specifically for the Shield Order) and could throw down if push came to shove. Being a healing goddess meant she knew exactly where to hit to inflict the most damage, if she had to.
  • Light Is Good.
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Charity. A very generous deity, she gave everything she had for the good of others. Including, eventually, her own life.
  • The Medic: Patron saint of them, and her role amongst the other Gods of Light before her demise.
  • There Are No Physcologists: Averted, her faithful often worked to heal the thoughts and feelings of others as well as their physical wounds.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to her little sister Kadiya’s Girl Girl.


    Kadiya (Deceased
  • Actual Pacifist: She's the Goddess of Peace, so naturally she was one, and encouraged her followers to be the same way. Not to say she was naive or foolish. She knew what kind of Dark and Shattered Lands the world was.
  • Animal Motifs: The Dove, for obvious reasons.
  • Foil: Originally to Raije, the Peace to his War. Arguably to Fatale as well, she favored peaceful, quiet, dignified deaths to his bloody, violent murders.
  • Killed Off for Real: Betrayed and murdered by Devion the Trickster. Her portfolio of peace was subsequently absorbed by her mother Taliena.
  • Light Is Good.
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Mercy. Always wanted to spare her enemies whenever fighting happened, and if possible, to avoid even that.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Was the Girly Girl to big sister Siccara’s Tomboy.

Gods of Neutrality

  • Animal Motifs: Owls. For wisdom and knowledge, obviously.
  • Badass Beard: Often appears this way, with a long, white, sorcerer-esque beard.
  • Badass Bookworm: How badass varies, but few can deny he is easily one of the book smart and knowledgeable of all the Gods.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: As is the way with all of the Neutral Gods, but Kwainin in particular feels it is his duty to uphold this above all else.
  • God Couple: With Zandreya.
  • Happily Married: Again, with Zandreya.
  • True Neutral: His Alignment, and one he takes very seriously.
  • The Chessmaster: Plays the long game, and plays it well.
  • The Smart Guy: When other Gods want raw, simple facts, they come to him. His extensive knowledge is said to rival any mortal library. And that’s all in his head.
  • The Watcher: Records all that goes on, supposedly. The Balanx are his creation to help with this endeavor, constantly updating the history of the world.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Ugly might be a stretch, but Kwainin is frequently described as rather on the plain side of things, while Zandreya is arguably one of the more beautiful of Goddesses.

  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: Has taken to doing this more often since inheriting her daughters command of storms. When she doesn't like you, you'll know it.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Favors staffs as her weapons, as well as for her most faithful the druids and rangers of Algoron.
  • Deity of Human Origin: According to myth, Kwainin found her one day on Algoron, fell in love with her beauty, and elevated her to Goddess-hood upon marrying her. It must have been very early in the creation of existence, but it is possible.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Loves all living creatures, from the beautiful to the hideous, the magnificent to the freakish. So long as they’re natural creations. She feels considerably less friendly towards abominations of magic and science.
  • Gaia's Vengeance: Can be about this when she feels nature is threatened, and does not hesitate to hold back her fury if she feels it warranted.
  • God Couple: With Kwainin.
  • Green Thumb: Or rather, foot. Said to leave flowers behind wherever she physically walks on Algoron.
  • Happily Married: Again, with Kwainin.5916
  • Hot Goddess: The nymph race were created in her image, so naturally she's this.
  • In Harmony with Nature: She IS nature, it’s hard not to be.
  • Nature Spirit: Is one, and was the creator of the nymphs, who were made in her image.
  • Our Elves Are Better: Divine matron of Shalonesti and elven society as a whole. They're her favorites out of all the mortal races, despite being originally the creations of the Good Gods.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Ugly might be a stretch, but Kwainin is frequently described as plain, while Zandreya is arguably one of the more beautiful of Goddesses.

  • Drop the Hammer: Naturally, he’s normally depicted wielding a smith’s hammer as his weapon of choice. Not that he does much fighting to begin with, however.
  • Foil: Possibly to Dragoth, who would see all things decay, rot and ruin, compared to Cliath's building and creating. They rarely give each other much thought, however.
  • For Science!!: Loves to create simply for the sake of creating, and the tinker gnomes and their inventions are arguably a result of his benevolent guidance.
  • Gadgeteer Genius.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: They venerate him for his smithing guidance.
  • Our Gnomes Are Weirder: They venerate him for his inventing inspirations.
  • The Maker: Supposedly helped in forging the world, at least all the physical aspects of it. The spiritual aspects may have been more the influence of the other Gods, but it doesn't diminish his accomplishment in the slightest.
  • The Ultimate Blacksmith: Forged the entire world. Top that.

  • Foil: To Kantilles and Drakkara, regarding the use of magic.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: The youngest of the Neutral Gods (if not one of the very youngest Gods of them all), and frequently appears (by choice) as a child-like Avatar. Yet his raw magical power and creativity is not to be under-estimated.
  • Pure Energy: Said to be able to tap into the raw force of magical power greater than any other deity, even his fellow Gods of Magic Kantilles and Drakkara.

    Turpa (Deceased
  • Bolt Of Divine Retribution: Loved these, fitting for a storm Goddess.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Storms were her favorite, being a Weather Goddess, but she was never truly malicious about using them.
  • Killed Off for Real: Murdered by Malachive. Her portfolio was subsequently absorbed by her mother Zandreya.

  • Blood Knight: VERY enthusiastic about battle.
  • Dual Wielding: Described as going into battle sans shield and wielding two enormous weapons, one in each hand. Which weapons varies, though swords and axes tend to be the most popular.
  • Foil: Originally to Kadiya, the War to her Peace. Now, he has virtually no opposition. And given the current status of the world, it shows.
  • Spirited Competitor: Beyond war, he loves fighting or competing of any sort, and his followers are those who’ve organized many events in DSL, including the Clans War, the ACFL, and the AGL.
  • War God: THE War God. All are involved in the "Gods War", and their Clans and followers in the Tournaments Raije organizes, but HE is the penultimate deity of conflict and battle.
  • War Is Glorious: Definitely believes this, as do his followers. None of them know how to back down from a good fight.

Gods of Evil

    Necrucifer (Deceased
  • Bad Boss: Not the nicest of guys, and treated even his own family as servants and lackeys. It didn’t do him any favors.
  • Big Bad: The biggest of all the bads of DSL. Or rather, he was...
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Had Nadrik imprisoned on the Black Moon where Gods can perish, and yet rather than end him immediately, kept him prisoner for years in the hopes Good would lead an assault on the moon and lose more of their Gods. Eventually, it did... and to be fair, it did lead to more Gods deaths, alright... unfortunately, it including his own.
  • Cain and Abel: Some versions of the story seem to suggest Necrucifer and Austinian were this. Obviously, Necrucifer would be the Cain.
  • Control Freak: Wanted to impose his order on the entire world and beyond, and would accept nothing less than total dominion over all things living or dead.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: The utter rule of the world is what he wanted, by any means necessary.
  • Foil: To Austinian, the dark to his light.
  • God Couple: With Drakkara.
  • It's All About Me: Can sometimes be depicted this way, seeing anything part of the Dark Pantheon as his to do with as he pleases, including the faithful of other Dark Gods.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Necrucifer. Literally, one who brings death.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Of all the Evil Gods, was most keen to see victory at any cost, and thus could curb his own or other evil impulses in order to accomplish greater goals, even working alongside the pantheons of Light and Twilight on occasion against threats like Malachive or the Abhorrants. That said, he’d always be looking for a way to exploit the situation for his own benefit.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Pride. In spades. And as they say: "'Pride Cometh Before the Fall'."
  • The Evils of Free Will: Strongly believed freedom is an abomination, and that order (specifically, [[Evil Overlord HIS order]]) must be imposed for the good of existence.
  • The Older Immortal: With Austinian and Kwainin. The original Trio.
  • The Strategist.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Arguably moreso than any other Dark God, his organized Shadow Knights and relatively stable Verminasia portrayed his desire for Dark Order over the world as a good thing. It somewhat backfired, because it made some of his other followers believe he was weak.

  • Beauty Is Bad: Often described as gorgeous, as only a Goddess can be, but is very dangerous. She frequently lure males of all races in close simply to destroy them for her own amusement, and of course killed her own husband in a grab for power.
  • Big Bad: Once she took over from Necrucifer.
  • Black Magic: Her moon is even black, and invisible to non-evil people.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Evil Genius: As "Mistress of Dark Magic", this is highly implied, though she allowed Necrucifer to spearhead most of their joint schemes.
  • Evil Matriarch: Bar Necrucifer, ruler of the Dark Pantheon, mother of all the Dark Gods (plus Malachive), and some argue she even had her husband wrapped around her little finger. And then she goes and takes him out of the picture herself...
  • Foil: Has quite a few. For Kantilles and Sebatis, with regards to magic (the three complete the triad of magical influences on Algoron). Also to Taliena and Zandreya for being the principle deities wife (at first). And more recently, Austinian and Kwainin, as the ruler of her given side of the Pantheon.
  • God Couple: With Necrucifer.
  • Happily Married: Averted strongly.
  • Hot Goddess.
  • Offing the Offspring: Attempts to do this with Malachive.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Lust. Not so much guilty of it herself, but uses it frequently to her advantage, and takes a perverse pleasure in manipulating them to her whim.
  • Smug Snake: Can be rather arrogant and full of herself, particularly when she think she’s winning.
  • The Dark Chick: The only evil Goddess.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Arguably, her biggest reason for killing Necrucifer may have stemmed from his ignoring or belittling her ideas during the Raid on the Black Moon.

  • Affably Evil: Described as quite charming, right up until the moment his knife enters your heart.
  • Ambition Is Evil: One of his Tenets, and an encouragement amongst his followers to climb the ranks. By eliminating the competition, if necessary. Rumor has it Fatale also has high ambitions, an interest in the Throne of Darkness, but if so, he's yet to make a direct move for it.
  • Animate Dead: While all evil Gods can do this, Fatale in particular favors it, seeing mindless undead as tools and weapons.
  • Ax-Crazy: Easily one of the most bloodthirsty of the evil Gods, who considers a day without someone dying (specifically, to someone else) a waste.
  • Chess with Death: According to some stories, enjoys the game and playing it with mortals. However, he does not often lose, and even when he does, the additional rules in his games can sometimes make even the mortal who bested him feel like a loser.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Deal with the Devil: How some view his attempts to convert people into ‘Gifted’ vampires.
  • Exact Words: Often adheres to this in favor of outright lies, to play with his victims expectations.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Frequently used to punish those whom do not properly respect dying.
  • Foil: Generally, to Nadrik, who shows mercy and honor, killing only when he must, whereas Fatale would happily kill you for a klondike bar.
  • Hot God: Frequently appears to mortals as a very handsome male, unlike his maimed and scarred brothers.
  • Human Sacrifice: To kill is to sanctify in Fatale's dogma.
  • I Have Many Names: Befitting a many of many faces and masks, Fatale has also been called the Dark Shinobi, the Grim Reaper, the Deathscythe, and the Ender in various parts of the world in addition to his regular title as the God of Murder.
  • Knife Nut: Favors knives as his weapon of choice. Up close and personal tends to be the best way to kill someone, to his mind. Plus they’re easiest to conceal.
  • Mad Artist: Fatale commands his followers to not just kill to strengthen him (and themselves), but to kill in particularly gruesome, public and inventive ways.
  • Manipulative Bastard.
  • Meaningful Name: Dealing with him tends to be fatal. May also explain his occasional interest in female avatars, as a femme fatale.
  • Names Tto Run Away From Really Fast: As in 'fatal' yeah, he’s not someone you want to share tea with. Plus he’s the God of Murder. Not death. MURDER.
  • Professional Killer: Patron Saint of these.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Greed.
  • Sinister Scythe: A favored weapon of his followers, though rarely Fatale himself (too obvious). He tends to be more of a Knife Nut.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Described as this as one of his more popular Avatars.
  • The Corrupter: Always keen to remind others they are killers in their own right, and shake them free of their delusions and hypocrisy. If it brings them into the fold as his new faithful, so much the better.
  • The Dragon: To Necrucifer and later Drakkara, as their eldest and most capable son.
  • The Grim Reaper: One of his many avatars.
  • The Starscream: According to the Heretical Prophecy, will one day commit the "Ultimate Murder" and remove his father from power, then assume his position and portfolio. The prophecy was condemned by Fatale himself, and later proven false when Drakkara killed Necrucifer, but one does have to wonder... if she’s next.
  • The Social Darwinist: The strong live, the weak die.
  • Undeath Always Ends: Why Fatale has no problem with loyal undead and often gifts mortal shells his vampiric demons to extend their lives. He knows even they will someday end, and as far as he’s concerned, as long as they make good use of the extended time in the mortal realm (usually by killing plenty of others), it’s fine by him. Rogue undead, however, he does not tolerate.
  • Villains Never Lie: Rarely feels a need to. He’s all but proud of his work, and a master at using Exact Words to manipulate others.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: The Godly equivalent. Sometimes uses female Avatars and guises, seemingly equally as much as he takes on the appearance of handsome males or hideous monsters.

    Mencius (Deceased
  • An Axe to Grind: Frequently depicted with this as his weapon of choice, for up close and bloody executions.
  • Animal Motifs: Bulls, by virtue of being violent and thick-headed. Minotaurs once being prominent followers of Mencius tended to reinforce this image.
  • Color Motifs: Red, like blood.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Killed Off for Real: Destroyed by Siccara, who took him with her when he attempted to end her brother's life. His portfolio was subsequently absorbed by ???.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Identified strongly with the Minotaurs, and could well be the source of (or influence of) their having this mentality themselves.
  • Rape, Pillage, and Burn: The usual Mencian strategy in any given situation.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath.
  • Revenge: One of his domains before ??? took it up. He was the God of Retribution and Vengeance.
  • The Brute: Not commonly depicted as very clever, but a suitable strong arm his family could exploit.
  • The Power of Hate: He's was the God of it, and his followers remain profoundly pissed off to this day (those that are left, that is).
  • Unstoppable Rage: Once he really got worked up, it was best to just get out of his way.

  • Animal Motifs: Maggots. It does nothing to improve his popularity.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Foil: To Cliath, the destruction and decay to his creation. Also to Zandreya, the rot to her growth. They don't generally make it personal but their priesthoods can come into conflict over the matters.
  • In Da Hood: Sometimes depicted wearing a hood with nothing but shadows and glowing eyes beneath. This is said to be because his own disease has affected his face, rendering him too hideous to look upon by mere mortals.
  • Master Poisoner: A true master. One of his favorites is one that, once contact is made, stays dormant for weeks before beginning to show symptoms, taking victims by surprise. Even his brothers Fatale and Devion turn to him whenever they need a particularly nasty sort of poison to make use of in their schemes.
  • Our Goblins Are Different: Patron saint of the goblinoid people, who are reputedly his favorites. Explains why they’re such filthy little buggers, as well as either immune to or bolstered by most regular poisons.
  • Plaguemaster: God of Diseases and Plagues.
  • Poisonous Person: God of Poisons and Toxins.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Sloth. Arguably one of the laziest of the Dark Gods, both he and his church rarely involve themselves in the affairs of the world in a meaningful way, content to simply let what is become what was.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Lusted after the pretty Light Goddesses, Siccara and Kadiya. The former cost him an arm and a leg (and possibly an eye), the latter he led to her death.
  • Arch-Enemy: Nadrik, who took his hand. Few gods loathe each other more than these two do. He even specifically orders his priesthood to target Nadrik’s faithful either for pranks or killing first and foremost.
  • Dark Is Evil.
  • Dirty Coward: Easily one of the most craven of the Gods, prefers very much to stab you in the back, finding it the safest place for him to be in a given fight.
  • Disabled Deity: He's missing a hand. Sometimes he's been known to have an eyepatch as well, but this may be another example of his trickery and not a genuine wound, divine or otherwise.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Arguably both the victim and perpetuator of such. He tried to take Nadrik's sister. Nadrik took his hand. Devion kill his other sister. I'm sure they're even steven now.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: Few appreciate his jokes, even amongst his own pantheon.
  • Foil: To Nadrik, an honest God compared to one whom (almost) always lies, and an honorable duelist against a backstabbing coward.
  • For the Evulz: Pretty much everything he does.
  • Religion of Evil: The Dark Pantheon.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Arguably Envy, Devion is often seen as a joke by just about every other deity, when he wants to be seen as an equal with the majority of them.
  • The Prankster: Likes playing cruel jokes on just about everyone. Hasn't made him very popular.
  • The Trickster: Sneaky, snarky, underestimate him at your peril. Just ask poor Kadiya...

God of Chaos

    Malachive (Deceased??
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He was raised as the son of a carpentry family, never knowing of his divine heritage until he was much older. Now, he leads an organization on par with most of the original three groups.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Until he became involved, the "Gods War" had largely settled into a cold front with all three sides more or less in perfect equilibrium. Thanks to his wild card actions, five Gods have died, another had been imprisoned, and Algoron has been thrown into absolute turmoil.
  • Illegal Religion: Most kingdoms and clans outlaw any worship of Malachive as a deity. They’ll happily accept faiths of dark overlords, murderers, witches or tricksters, but anyone preaching of Anarchy and Chaos is quite unwelcome.
  • Mad God: Quite crazed.
  • Order vs. Chaos: You can guess which side he’s on. Go on, guess.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: And Hells. Has it in for all the Gods and their followers.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Fights against any divine mandate anywhere, considering both sides of the "Gods War" his enemies.
  • Religion of Evil: Well, Chaos, but most people consider it the same thing.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Malachive rounds out the other Dark Gods with Gluttony. Not in the traditional sense (there's been no depiction of him as particularly fat or ravenously hungry), but with a desire for excess, he more than fits the bill, wanting far more than any other deity that has come before him, and then some.
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: Or bloodless. Malachive and his Chaos followers are very much "with us or against us."
  • The Sixth Ranger: Starts out as this for Team Evil, but goes on to form his own team. With blackjack. And hookers.
  • The Unfettered: Nothing holds him back from his goal. No line will not be crossed.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: At least, his followers would like to think he is, but most agree he’s simply mad, underhanded, and power hungry.

Example of:
