The Demon Lord of amphibians, demands his servants protect frogs, toads, and salamanders; spread chaos; and revere the dark swamplands. To form a bond, a week long putrid ceremony must be completed in a slimy lair of the Toadfiend. After any assistance, Bobugbubilz demands minor acts of fealty, usually related to slaying snakes and other creatures that eat his amphibious thralls.
The Demon Prince of storms and wastelands, Azi Dahaka is anything but subtle. He is the blasting sandstorm, the deadly asp, and the desiccated corpse in the scorching sun. He expects his followers to bring ruin wherever they go. His ceremony must be conducted in a desert at high noon where the caster has imbibed no liquid for one day and one night before. He demands much of those who seek his patronage.
The wickedest of wizards to ever plague the Wilderlands, Sezrekan the Elder was born a peasant and cursed with knowledge of higher worlds.

The Old Master has little regard for those that cannot help themselves, offering aid only to those of proven dedication and talent.

Their anathemas are fell magics and the chaos-born corruption these magics unleash; supplicants of the Fates must exercise great discipline lest they become the monsters they seek to vanquish.
