Demon Raol has been known by many other names in the past, mostly people
have associated him with being the head demonic type figure of popular
religious lore. Raol is in fact a very diabolic entity from another
plane he likes to call "Inferus" which is a dimension which
could be an accurate description of the underworld. However in this
realm Raol is all powerful, he has agents everywhere, minions to do
his bidding, and powerful slaves tethered to his will. It is unknown
how old Raol is, but the "Demon" aspect of his name suggest
he is actually a "DimEnsional MONstrosity" in a humanoid form.
Raol has enslaved hundreds of beings over the course of his reign and
he has only been ever thwarted thrice. He never sleeps, never eats,
and only drinks if it suits his mood. His fearsome power holds sway
over his minions who will do anything to avoid his direct wrath after
all Raol does not kill, he tortures till near death only to let his
victim recover and start over again and at that he has become masterful.
Raol has a very unique power, he has the power to manipulate the immediate
reality around him (with a limited spectrum) to his whim. For instance
he can form barriers of force around him, cause the ground to erupt,
and even turn lesser beings into stone if he so desires. Yet Raol gets
bored with cliché methods, and tries to come up with new and
innovative ways of manipulating his "area of power". For instance
he might turn the grass under his victim into a mass of writhing acid
worms, or make a warriors armor start to shrink so that it crushes them.
This leads Raol to believe that he should use only the minimum of his
powers to achieve his goals. Raol is also a creature of near indestructibility,
his body has taken hits from chain gun, missile launchers, grenades,
even rail guns with no ill effect, on top of that Raol seems to regenerate
any damage done to his humanoid form. Raol has a limited scope of immortality
in that he doesn't age, and if he is damaged enough to a point where
he is nearly destroyed his form will reincarnate leaving him in suspended
animation for three months. It is believed that this is actually one
of his many "terms" he has set for his body using his reality
altering energy. Raol also favors what he calls "the slaying touch"
when he uses this power he can pierce almost any object with his hand
with one single thrust. His hand glows a bright red when he uses this
power and swirls of shadow matter orbit around his arm, to be struck
is instant death for any normal mortal, super human beings might take
more than one strike to kill but Raol finds it amusing to wound his
target and then monologue as they writhe in pain. The actual touch itself
is like a blazing fire and a sub-zero ice dagger rolled into one, the
victim will feel cold yet the afflicted area will feel like it burns.
Raol also favors absorbing energy from things around him, when he can
and has been known to leave a trail of dead things in his wake, their
lives sucked from their bodies. Lastly Raol has the ability of omni-travel,
this grants him the ability to fly (sometimes at hyper-luminescent speeds),
teleport, shift dimensions, leap very high over obstacles, and dash
on foot at nearly unbelievable velocities.
Raol sometimes, but not always, carries around the "Soul Staff
of Darkness" this item can call forth to Raol the souls of defeated
warriors in the form of lumbering zombie like creatures, or monstrous
beasts. The most minions he has ever summoned with this staff at once
is twenty and even then each minion is much more tougher, stronger,
and faster than any normal humans or beasts. This staff is also neigh
indestructible known to have taken repeated strikes from other weapons,
and in Raol's hands he wields it with unearthly grace and deadliness.
