The following compiles many of the diabolical tyrants known to rule in Hell. Gods Asmodeus Asmodeus reigns as the unquestioned lord of Hell, the emperor and god of the damned. He is the most powerful entity to reside within the infernal realm, and even the other deities who make their home within the Pit do so at the Prince of Darkness’s allowance. Archdevils Barbatos Few dare speak Barbatos’s name, as legend says he is the most likely of Hell’s archfiends to hear. Of Asmodeus’s lieutenants, the mysterious lord of Avernus's true nature remains one of Hell’s greatest mysteries, a secret supposedly known by Asmodeus alone, and some say not even by him. Barbatos appears as an ancient humanoid man wrapped in filthy robes made from wrinkled skins flensed from the souls of long-dead travelers. From the sleeves of his leathery rags stretch withered, seven-fingered hands, each digit bearing an extra joint and gnarled claw. Infernal Dukes Furcas Furcas is an infernal duke in the service of the archdevil Barbatos who makes his home in a fortress called the Forked Pyre, which straddles a cataract of lava on Hell's first layer, Avernus. He appears in the form of a cruel old man with a long beard and a hoary head, riding upon a pale-coloured horse, with a scythe in his hand. His office is to teach the Arts of Philosophy, Astrology, Rhetoric, Logic, Chiromancy , and Pyromancy, in all their parts. He sometimes favors mortals with a Boon, that increases their power so long as they are loyal to him.
