|Moloch, the Deity of decay|
|Species||Unknown, presumably old ones|
|Alliance(s)||His own army of restless souls|
"Thy wish is done, my brother. The flesh of thy enemies shall be consumed and their homes shall be ravaged."
Moloch (מולך) is a powerful deity of violence and Decay. Once believed to be slain by a hero from the times of legend, his soul remained sealed in a mysterious world, unable to get the eternal rest.
Moloch appears as an ox-headed deity, its body covered in gold, being 15 meters tall, and has several magic runes written all over the torso.
Moloch is a charismatic entity that offers his power to people who are thirsty for revenge. Throughout history, several figures have offered their devotion to the deity, such as Oda Nobunaga, Napoleon Bonaparte and even Adolf Hitler. As the embodiment of revenge, Moloch delights in helping his followers in realizing onslaughts and vendettas.
Moloch was once slain by Napishtim, a sage who built a colossal ark to escape an event known as the "flood". Some time later, Napishtim became a Dragon God, while Moloch, corrupted by the ambitions of being a Dragon God himself, used black magic to become an embodiment of revenge. He developed a plan to turn Napishtim into a Dark Dragon, but the sage's power proved to be more of a match for him. Banned into the world of chaos, Moloch swore to kill the sage.
Napishtim created a land filled with sea life, and as time passed, the merfolk tribesmen appeared, as consequence of evolution. The tribesmen had a champion named Leviatan, the Azure.
Leviatan proved to be a powerful warrior, and he was baptized into the Dragonkin by the sage. Unbeknownst to him, Moloch had escaped from his prison. Leviatan was defeated by Moloch's unfair tactics in battle, and he proceeded to seal Napishtim into the world of chaos. On the other side, Leviatan was cursed into eternal youth for eons until coming to pass.
Moloch commited genocide against the merfolk, and turned their homeland into a desert which he proudly calls "the Sands of Decay".
Eons later, Moloch had taken over the world of chaos to himself, and helped several people in power to get their goals, as long as they were based in a desire to kill moved by revenge (Such as Oda Nobunaga's massacre of the Iga Ninja or the Holocaust).
