This history does not nearly incorporate all the dealings of this angel, but provides a timeline to the MAJOR events of his existence.
Belial has come to possess many mortals over the millenia that he has been operating in the mid-realms, but his most recent and favored shell is that of Anthoni Vertacci. Vertacci is a behemoth of a man who appears to be in perfect vigor, and who's presence would be intimidating without the presence of a Fallen Angel.
The Second Age
It may be well believed that mankind was heavens only children, this is not so. The Celestials(Angels), were the First race, blessed with immortality and connected directly to the Creator. The Angels were seperated into seven houses to carry out the wonderous work and serve the will of the Light, their creator. Unified, these angels helped form the fabric of all that may be called reality, helping to shape a world of wonders and seperate what "was" from that which "was not".
The Second race were the beasts, and Beastmen. Granted benign intelligence, and mastery over their domains of the wild, they too enjoyed immortality, and Became Aspected to what their guardianships pertained to within the worlds of the Mid realms. They were ruled by the First race for eons, but grew tired of servitude, and rebelled against their mistreatment. This lead to a long war against the Celestials. The Second race put up a valiant effort, but ultimately were no match for the First.
The Third Age
During the dawn of the Third Age (Mankind) many decisions began to split Heaven. Beginning with what was to be done with the Second race. After the war that ended the Second Age, most of the creatures were exiled from the Mid-realms. A select few, who contributed to the preservation of The Light were granted guardianships over the Mid-realms. Thus the origins of the Lycan's and many other beastmen. Those that were unredeemable were banished to the Outer realms where there is no light.
Darenzel was an Angel of the First house, and herald of heaven, they were the voices of the Light, and the Hope of Heaven. He had fought valiantly alongside his brothers Azazel and Belial, for the preservation of The Light. After the banishment of the second race, Watchers were needed to make certain the Second race never returned. He volunteered immediatly, the first to take up the honor of safekeeping the sanctity of The Light, and set up his vigilance with a fortification at the borders to the Outer realms. Many battles continued, as the vexed Second race harbored vengeance, and desired above all else to return to the lands of light.
Heaven put into motion the rituals to create the Third race, the race of Man. The Celestials had learned a great deal from the rule of the Second race, and agreed to create a more timid and reasonable race. The Light, the creator made these creatures in his image, (not two hands, two legs, etc, but with a miniscule spark of the power that was the creator, infusing them with a power the angels did not have) When the decision was made that Heaven would play no part in the rule of "Mankind", that he would be free to create his own destiny and that heaven would have "No Interferance", Heaven was split. Many of the Angels had fought and died restoring and saving Heaven's strength (Immortals of the First race are eternal, death is a millenia of reforming in the sacred tombs of Carceri, where all Celestials are reborn). Many had sacrificed or lost all their wealth and power to the war, they had been promised to have it all restored once peace was restored. A new Heaven was in order, and their sacrifices were seen as ultimate faith in the Creator, and that such devotion and service to the Light granted no greater reward.
Those in Heaven were rattled but not past understanding, they knew that the creator loved them and understood things they never could. It was after Ahrimal, an Angel of the fates, discovered that mankind, was doomed to destroy himself, that he would be consumed by darkness and lost forever, his future was entwined with that of heaven and thus, the Light would Perish! It was upon this discovery that the accumulating agenda's grew to much for heaven to ignore.
Ahrimal took his discoveries to the masters of his house of fates, yet they dismissed the dire tidings as "nothing to fear".
Aghast, Ahrimal turned to his trusted friends, Belial, Usiel and Lailah, were they met in secret and discussed possible solutions to what the future promised. It was not untill Lucifer, the Morningstar, first among angels, and the voice of god, told them that something indeed must be done to preserve the integrity and peace of mankind, for their first command from the creator was to love mankind as much as they loved him, yet the commandment to never interfere conflicted with the first.
Lucifer convinced his fellow angels to approach mankind and offer him the insight, and knowledge of Heaven, to elevate him, so that he could escape the dark destiny. Enraged at their Interferance, The creator ordered they return and face annihilation for defying the Light's will, and that mankind forgoe the teaching of the rebel angels, and a return to what was before.
This lead to the First race's revolt.
The Time of Troubles
Hundreds of Angels rebelled against these decisions, feeling betrayed by The Light. After the proceeding protests and debates the hundreds of agitated Angels were reduced to dozens. The Revolts became more aggressive, and extreme, nearly warlike. Finally blood was shed and the very first Angel was slain by his own.
The revolters found themselves outcaste, and enemies of The Light. The Archangels were formed to Protect Mankind from the Fleeing Succeeders, and they stood resolute watch over the lesser race. The Arch's soon realized they underestimated just how quickly and how far there cousins had strayed from The Light, when more Angels found their death's. The Creator cast them from grace, marring their beauty, their flesh changed to match their hearts, and they no longer were part of The Light.
The War had begun, and it had come to the Mid-realms.
Hunts were organized to remove the Fallen from the Mid-realms and banish them to the Outer realms, The Creator built a barrier on the borders to the Outer realms, to inprison the Fallen banished beyond it.
The war to remove the Fallen from the Mid-realms took a very long time, estimated over 25,000 years. The celestials helped raise empires and crushed others during this time, and mankind found himself reduced to the stone age more than once. The Unity of Heaven gave them the strength to overcome the divided Fallen, who were too selfish to stand together against Heaven's warrior's.
Man for the most part was left to his own devices, Heaven was far too preoccupied with their cousins. The Fallen however, had set the stone in motion, they had whispered secrets of the Arcane (a source of power besides that of The Light, that the Fallen created) and taught mankind to find faith elsewhere.
Once the Fallen began to populate the Outer realms, the Second race had leadership, they had unity, but most importantly they had renewed purpose to fight the Angels. The Outer realms banishment was cruel to them. The seperation from the light corrupted them, and degenerated them. They cross breeded, they in-breeded, and they multiplied. They developed hundreds of sub realms out of the darkness, each kingdoms and domains to themselves, and they had warred endlessly. They were now evil and filled with hatred. The Fallen gave them a new target to direct their visciousness. They granted them boons and promises of immortality, and power, for their servitude. The Idea of wrecking the realms of light is all they needed to spur them into a frenzy.
The Fallen could no longer cross the void, to return to the Mid-realms, but they discovered ways for the Daemons to do so. With the help of Mankind's understanding of the Arcane power, they now had the ability to summon the Daemons, and commune with the Outer realms, and the Fallen. From their eternal prison the Fallen orchestrated mankind's downfall, and the destruction of Heaven.
Millenia passed during the Third age's Stryfe, all the while Mankind was slipping further and further into Sin and darkness. Heaven recognized that the Fallen were winning the ultimate struggle, for the souls of Men. The Light called for a taskforce to brave the Outer realms and destroy the leadership of the Daemons, or forever lose the Third race. The Fallen are cunning, wickedly black hearted and malicious. No one understands the Outer realms better then the Daemons and together they crushed the Celestials spirit and numbers. The Angels discovered a poisonous and vicious collection of realms, a foe who had mastered the Arcane power, and a relentless assault on their minds and bodies. Through one tormenting ordeal after another, after heavy losses, and attacks on their hearts, they were given a choice to surrender, and save their brethren, or die in the wastes. The Angels chose salvation. The Fallen were true to their twisted word, and set them free, only to be hunted down mercilessly by ravening Daemons, killing them off one by one, untill a lone survivor was allowed to escape.
NOTE: I thought it very important to inform the reader that Carceri (the tomb of the immortals) fell to the Outer realms during further conflicts after the Angels Task force. Carceri was rebuilt as Valara (also known as Valhalla to other religions) much closer to the source of The Light, and all the Celestial's were re-attuned to its magic. Unfortunately for a handful of Angels who were currently reforming at Carceri, they would awaken in enemy territory.
Belial is a monster in every definition of the word. Spreading Fear and destruction in a terrible wake of Shadowy Wrath! he uses people and other immortals as tools to complete his diabolical schemes to annihilate the race of man, and bring Heaven and the Light to its knees.
Belial is very demonstrative with his power, allowing those to know full well what they are up against, and using that realization as a tool to promote fear, and command respect. Belial can be very formal, and is very respectful to those with great power, often treating other Fallen as equals in conversation, and giving them proper courtesy even if they do not command the eighty legions of Hell's finest Daemons...
Belial despises the race of man, never getting past the fact that they were treated with more respect, granted more priveledges, and loved more then the First race, who had served, and bled for the Light.
Belial is one of the greatest enemies to the Light, forever regarding it, and its servants with the utmost contempt, and hatred. He views the Light and all those associated with it as the TRUE traitors, since it was the Light which broke its promises first, and that he is a true veteran and comrade to the cause, since he stood up for his brothers and his fellow angels who were used and scoffed by the Light.
Belial is highly volatile, is a boiling font of rage, and true power. He is elemental, and seems to be the epitome of Fear. He is viewed by millions of Hell's Finest as a symbol and is a figurehead in Hell's Leadership, and its movements. His word is viewed as law, and his power is respected as absolute. He believes very much in the corruption of mankind, because it destroys the spirit of heaven to see their creation, their children turn to sin and wickedness, and thusly promotes the ultimate corruption of mankind in all his dealings. convincing men to commit the greatest of atrocities, to indulge in the blackest of sins and the Flesh.
As the Lord over the Northern Reaches of Hell, and the Domain of Earth, Belial commands all aspects of the Earth, and its Daemons. His domain is underground, and shaped of great marvels of craftmanship, and dark Beauty.
RP Notes( Mystics, Mindreaders,etc)
Attempts to read his mind will always fail, recieving a blank reading (Keeper of Secrets)*Natural Demon Defense. However, he can can be spurned to "reveal" the truth through powerful ritual spells, which require sacrifice.
He has countless schemes in operation to threaten the Light, and bring the mid-realms to its knees. He has NO value of other lives. He does however retain a portion of his subterfuge, and can be very silver tongued and even romantic when it suits him to bother.
His Origins are ancient, if a scryer is an Immortal of Divine Origin, they "may "know all that is present at this page about Belial through "Legend Lore/Past Reading", or through a extended Research attempt, that requires 15+ successes.
His aura radiate's Corruption, Wrath and Torment. The system of this is strong enough to cow nearly all attacks against him, resolving most conflicts, from the sheer molevolence of his will.
Other Divine Origins may sense the lingering power of the Light, labeling him an outsider. This sensation is unmistakably of wrongness, uncomforting and often damaging, all those around him. They may also discover if particularly talented (level 45+) that is he Brethren to Darenzel, Azazel
