Description

Cocytus - The River of Wailing


"People believe that the pits of Hell are of brimstone, fire and sweltering heat to burn away the flesh of the Sinful.
They are wrong.
There is the illusion of heat, a cold so severe it burns more than any Holy Fire, leaving no trace of the treacherous ones - Oath breakers, kin slayers, betrayers of the Lord.
The Three Maws of Satan ripping flesh from bone, ever gluttonous and eternally hungry for more as He waits for meat to be delivered.

Ninth of the Nine Circles.

Cocytus."


Image


For the Maws to be fed those bound to Him had to find a way to create a link between the icy waters and the world so far above. It would not do for the Master to turn upon the servants...
After many centuries plotting, planning, the minions of Satan formed the plan to create one who could freely shift between the Lake and the world above, to create an abomination the likes of which the Earth had ever seen.
The fruit, stolen many eons ago from the Tree of Live was gifted to Lilith, Adam's first wife and she was directed to go to the deepest depths of the Lake of Wailing, and bed the one who resided there.
And so the physical manifestation of Cocytus was conceived.

Image


"Frozen is the blood that courses through his veins.
Frozen is the heat that thumps life into the Circle.
Thankful are we, the unworthy who are spared.
Thankful are not, those who are devoured.
From the depths of Sin he was crafted.
From the Lake of Wailing he stirs and hunts.
To The Maws, he returns, with Hell's precious bounty."
- The Chant of Unholy Sacrifice, sung by the demons that fester in the Lake.

So begins...

 An intense cold would seep slowly but surely into the bar, every person inside doubtlessly feeling the chill as it removed all warmth from the inside of the bar. Occasionally the temperature would drop to a burning degree, searing pain flashing across any unfortunate enough to feel these dips.

Nothing else would occur for several moments, the numbing cold weighing down all those it touched until a stirring began in a corner of the room; from between the floorboars small flies would crawl, flying around the corner with a high-pitched whining sound before a hand, tainted a pitch black color reached up through the ground, it pulling up a being with a vague human shape which then stood still, flies continuing to buzz loudly. -c-

 The air close to this creature would all but freeze, a constant mist surrounding him as a result, and the area his feet touched wee as ice. He cast a long ominous shadow along the floor, one of a large bestial creatures with three gaping jaws, all of which snapped up at those it could not reach but longed to devour. "I hear you... I hear you..." A quiet, broken voice came from the man, it echoing slightly in the crowded room. He, for it was male, then let out a long rattling breath, the temperature dropping yet further as more of his essence tainted the bar.

Cocytus 's head seemed to jerk, though as the form was obscured by a combination of mist, flies and the general blackness that came with him, it was difficult to tell. He said nothing for several moments, though the shadow he cast seemed to grow larger, thee jaws snapping urgently. Eventually a second rasping sigh echoed forth, followed by the same twisted tones. "Do not anger my Maker. Leave it be. None who will not see it need fear." The flies seemed to also grow irritated, buzzing faster about his body. He disliked to be spoke to, preferring to watch.

Cocytus felt the stirrings of the Second Circle briefly flicker in the room, however it did nothing to disrupt the icy air, the oppressive, heavy atmosphere Cocytus held within and about him. Slowly, very slowly he turned to face the two upon the sofa, the mass of flies bursting in their direction, buzzing and zooming about their bodies as he spoke. "Little imps... From the Second." A chuckle, horse and rattling echoed from him as he opened his eyes, a red flash briefly coming from them.

"How... Unfortunate that you meet the Ninth." His shadow also surged forward, always hungry for more flesh, it tasting less good when already corrupted, but still; Meant was meat. No doubt the twin would feel the Satanic power coming from it, as Cocytus spoke again. "Imps... Will you feed the Maws?" He lifted a hand slowly, outstretched to point at the pair, flies still buzzing about them.

Cocytus simply watched the pair struggle with their human facade, chuckling once again, though louder, the cold air seeming to pulse with the sound. He then jerked his head back, the bitter air retreating back to its Master, most of the room now being close to normal temperature, however the ares around Cocytus would likely freeze anything that came near. "Poor, poor little imps..." He mused, appearing beside them in a flash of movement.

He stared down between them for several moments, upper lip curling in disgust. "So weak... Already corrupted and Sinful..." He shook his head, the shadow on the ground snarling. "Not appropriate for feeding the Maws... They desire... Better meats." He then waved a hand in a large arch, the flies instantly dying, raining down on the twins as he lapsed into silence again, looking down at them with his wide red eyes.

Cocytus 's lips curled into a wide smirk, blackened teeth eerily reflecting the dim light of the bar. "It was you who came here... You little imps who were so curious as to my presence..." He stared for a long moment then at Pandora, speaking in a lower tone, voice sharp and cold, much like the shards of ice that gradually began to form along his body.

"Do not glare, imp. You may not be delicious... But your flesh would be welcomed." He then snapped his jaws which, in that instant seemed to lengthen, teeth growing into large needles, however they were back to normal in so quick a time, perhaps it was a trick of the light...?

He then looked down at his shadow, shaking his head. "And... You do not command my Make where He may or may not tread. The Ninth is deeper than your Second." A thinly veiled threat, however he felt no reason to be more subtle... he rarely did.

Cocytus [color=black]simply continued to watch the display, a look of barely-there curiosity on his features, where as others would look disgusted, perhaps even frightened. "An uncontrolled beast, that imp." He spoke to Eli, clearly speaking of his sister, a small smirk tugging onto his tainted lips. "A pity that your kind is so dependent on such... Human things as intimacy." He then jerked his head upward, the shadow raging briefly from the ground, pure blackness tearing up, aiming to ensnare the female and, if successful, fling her unmercifully against the opposite wall.

"How low other Circles have sunk... Pitiful." he shook his head. "The Five Archangels must truly be glorifying their victory." He hissed quietly, an icy wave flaring outward, shards of black ice appearing at random points in the air to flutter down like razor-sharp snow.

The shadow, meanwhile continued to snap at Eli now, teeth dripping and hungry for flesh it could not yet consume. "I hear you... I hear you, my Maker... Food will come to you." Cocytus spok

Cocytus A harsh breeze would drift over the rather barren landscape left by whatever destructive force had destroyed the bar that once stood; the wind's bite cold and painful, nipping at any exposed skin to create an unearthly chill that tinted flesh blue. A murmuring would soon follow, quiet pleadings of long-doomed souls for release, crying out to the living to head their desperate words.

It was then that a shadow of some brick and stone stirred, morphing to the image of a great and terrible beast, its hulking form blackening a large portion of the ground where the bar once stood, three gaping jaws snapping and snarling, trying to devour those who walked above it. Suddenly the maws would still for a moment before they began to make hideous chocking sounds, their head jerking as they gagged on some as yet unseen thing. -c-

Cocytus
The spluttering would continue until, with a loud choking growl, something physical was thrown from the three sets of teeth, being spat out of the ground, landing with three sickening wet slaps. The objects (for none who witnessed this would imagine they were portions of a being) were unmoving for several long moments until they slithered towards one another, rippling together to form something more solid, more human shaped and it was then it lurched to its feet in a bizarrely robotic fashion. There is simply stood, head hung limply to gaze at the shadow of the thee headed beast below him, and he spoke in a low, rattling tone; "I hear... I will feed you..."
