Phantacea Publications is pleased to announce "Goddess Gambit", the third and final book in 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy, is available for ordering both online and directly from the publisher

"Goddess Gambit"

In addition to concluding the Glories trilogy, Gambit picks up from where "Janna Fangfingers" left off. As such, it eventually carries on the Launch 1980 story cycle that began in 2009 with "The War of the Apocalyptics".

At 376 pages, including a brief Auctorial Prefatory, the book is considerably longer than any of the other mosaic novels or mini-novels featuring Jim McPherson's phantacea Mythos thus far released.

Suggested list price: $25.00 CAD or USD.

- 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' - Book Three

Starting at the end of November 1980 (Maruta 5980 Year of the Dome), its ensemble cast includes many characters new to Phantacea Publications, though not to the phantacea Mythos.

pdf with 2012 pricelist, prepared by Jim McPhersonAmong them are the fabulous, if fearsome, ever-fishifying Fisherwoman (Scylla Nereid, now over 60 but as formidable as ever), the Hellions' late 60th Century Morrigan (Superior Sarpedon), her husband and fellow Summoning Child Demios (once code-named the Ace of Spades) and her year-older brother, the Master of Weir since 5950 (Saladin Devason).

Colour and b/w ads prepared by Jim McPherson for the release of Goddess Gambit, 2012; artwork by Verne Andru, 2012Welcome back the Legendarian (Jordan 'Q for Quill' Tethys), Bodiless Byron's Firstborn Silverclouds (Savage Storm and Lunar Uma), the Thanatoid Death Gods of Lathakra (King Cold and the Scarlet Empress) and a certain next-to-never-remembered Smiling Fiend (who may or may not yet prove to be the Moloch Sedon slumming).

Why are earthborn demons fighting against the Living and why are Hellion Witches fighting against demons? Aren't they supposed to be allies? They were in Feel Theo, which took place on Mithramas Day 4376, and still were throughout the seven hundred or so years (4824-5495 YD) covered during 1000-Daze — what's changed?

Who is Freespirit Nihila? To her exceedingly short-lived regret, didn't Herta Heartthrob encounter someone very similar, perhaps even identical, to her in Contagion, circa 5476?

Did any members of the Damnation Brigade survive the War of the Apocalyptics? For that matter, did any of the Apocalyptics?

No matter ...

If they're alive and dare trifle with them, Nergal Vetala, the Blood Queen of Hadd, and her soldier, her champion, the Trigregos Titan, whoever he is, will happily kill them.

They'll kill anyone who seeks to play let alone win a Trigregos Gambit at their expense.

Kill them then command their corpses to rise up and kill the more!

Covers for 1000 Daze mini-novels prepared by Jim McPherson, 2919/11Covers for 1000 Daze prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010/11The three mini-novels comprising "The 1000 Days of Disbelief", Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' are available for ordering online.

Just as happily, you can purchase "The Death's Head

Hellion","Contagion Collectors" and "Janna Fangfingers" by credit card at their original, website prices of $10.00 each.

Of course, both can also be ordered direct from the publisher (that's me) for the same price, albeit not by credit card. (Cheques and money orders only, please.)

For the time being, if you order from me (and just because I may be temporarily out of my mind with excitement) I will absorb shipping costs and government taxes on the two, aforementioned mini-novels extracted from "The 1000 Days of Disbelief".

The same as the two thus-far-published, full-length mosaic novels featuring Jim McPherson's Phantacea Mythos, "Feeling Theocidal" and "The War of the Apocalyptics", both mini-novels are set in large measure on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

Their ensemble casts include, at the top of the food chain, Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities (the incomparable Harmony, Lightning Lord Order and Uncle Abe Chaos) in their freewheeling prime.

Both mini-novels also contain book-specific character companions. In the 'Anheroic Fantasy Illustrated' tradition of the decades-gone phantacea comic books, augmented versions of both companions are now online.

In its entirety 1000-Daze constitutes Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories'. A growing selection of lynx to out-takes from all three parts of the overall novel can be found here.

Variations of Cover for Feel Theo, artwork by Verne AndruCover for War Pox, art by Ian Bateson, 2008

"Feeling Theocidal -- Thrygragon, Year of the Dome 4376" (Book One of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy), "The War of the Apocalyptics" (the first full-length entry in the Launch 1980 story cycle), the three mini-novels making up "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" (Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories'), "Goddess Gambit" (Book Three of the trilogy and in some respects the second – unless it's the third – entry in the Launch 1980 story sequence) and "Nuclear Dragons" (the second, full-length entry in the Launch 1980 story sequence) should be available at neighbourhood bookstores and public libraries all over the world.

"Janna Fangfingers", the third and final mini-novel comprising 1000-Daze, rather cleverly doubles as a prequel to both Gambit and the Launch 1980 story cycle. In its turn, Endgame-Gambit picks up from where War-Pox leaves off. Part Three of "Nuclear Dragons" connects to both War-Pox and Gambit. Parts One, Two and Four of Nuke also nicely sets up "Helios on the Moon", the last scheduled sequence in the Launch 1980 story cycle.

E-versions of Feel Theo, Hellion, Contagion,Fangers, War-Pox and Gambit are available on the Kindle format exclusively from amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and some of amazon's other European and Asian affiliates.

Kindle e-books can be downloaded for I-Pads and I-Phones as well as a number of other devices. Many have text-to-voice capacity for the visually challenged.

Phantacea Publications e-books are also available in a variety of other formats. Please check your favourite online bookstore to download Phantacea Publications e-books to the device of your choice.

If you don't see the novels or mini-novels displayed at your local book stops, kindly direct purchasing agents and/or booksellers to www.phantacea.com in order to help them rectify such a sad situation.

| "The Death's Head Hellion" | "Contagion Collectors" | "Janna Fangfingers" |

Auctorial Preamble

The 1000 Days of Disbelief, Book Two of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy, consists of three distinct mini-novels: “The Death’s Head Hellion”, “Contagion Collectors” and “Janna Fangfingers”. Although comprising a whole, each segment is complete unto itself. At some point in time they may come out in one volume, possibly as an e-book. That point is, for now, in the future.

As one might expect from print publications featuring Jim McPherson’s phantacea Mythos, many of the characters in the mini-novels are immortal or seemingly immortal. Their influence is thus felt throughout the ages covered by the overall trilogy. Indeed, some of those listed below are only mentioned in 1000-Daze whereas as few others, as noted,  only appear in one or two of the mini-novels.

The extracts that follow are specific to the already-published mini-novels that make up 1000-Daze. I have also edited them such that I don’t give away too much of the storyline. The complete book-specific extracts can be found at the beginning of each mini-novel. In other words …

As always, good reading!

Sedonplay 4824/25 – “The Death’s Head Hellion”

Cover for The Death's Head Hellion, art prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010Tura's Allegory of Spring reminds me of Morgan Abyss, the Master of Weir circa 4825 YD(Extracted from a capsulated character companion for ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ Trilogy)

In 4825 Year of the Dome, forces loyal to the Death Gods of Frozen Lathakra threaten to overwhelm the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon. Its demonically-empowered Master counterattacks mercilessly.

In the nearly 5,000 years since the Moloch Sedon preserved it from the Great Flood of Genesis, the Hidden Continent has never experienced such approaching apocalyptic devastation.

Set in the Year of the Dome 4824/5, Hellion presents a terrifying dilemma that Thrygragos Everyman and his Unities, freewheeling anarchists the loathsome load of them, must resolve lest the post-Thrygragon Era of Empires results in a second Genesea.

As for Master Morgan Abyss, it isn't a matter of better the Devil you know. It's a matter of, when dealing with the Devil above, singular and capitalized, never forget the devils below, small case and plural.

It's a lesson she learns all too rapidly. Ah, but is it a lesson she also learns all too fatally?

1. Shining Ones: First, Second and Third Generation Devils

  • The Moloch Sedon

- the All-Father of Devazurkind; the Mighty Eye-Mouth in the Sky; the Devil Himself, capitalized;
- also known as Dark Sedon on account of his star shining darkly (i.e., as invisibly as most stars do) during the day; at night it, his mighty eye-mouth, is by far the brightest star in the heavens above the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head;inverted map of Sedon's Head, prepared by Jim McPherson and Tim Hammell in 1978
- solitary member of the first generation of devazurkind; acknowledged king of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons since Ragnarok, circa 234 PD (Pre-Dome);Collage  referring to the fact that only the Moloch Sedon ever wins a Sedonplay, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008
- grown or developed, more so than engendered let alone created, by the Male and Female Entities on the Trigon Asteroid, part of the First Weir System, in the dim recesses of the time-space continuum; somewhat later on in terms of the linear passage of time, the same time-tumbling Dual Entities nuked Weir Star;
- the appearance of Supernova 1987A provided photographic testimony to their success at obliterating its solar system, which included the first Weirworld, if not everyone then alive within it;
- the Entities started the process that resulted in the seemingly immortal, but nowhere-near-almighty, Moloch by using the right eye of Cabalarkon, a then wholly alive Utopian biogeneticist, for raw material; consequently Sedon still regards the now undying Utopian as his father, hence Cabby the Daddy;
-  Sedon’s essence made up the Sedonshem, which transported surviving devils throughout the cosmos until reaching the then Whole Earth in 669 PD;
- Sedon later used his essence to form the Cathonic Zone or Dome (consequently also the Sedon Sphere) in order to separate the consequential Outer Earth from the thereafter Inner Earth of Sedon’s Head;
- that occurred in the Year of the Dome (YD) Zero (4000 BCE); the Hellion mini-novel takes place in YD 4824/5 (A.D. 824-825).

  • The Six Great Gods and Goddesses

The Thrygragos Brothers and Trigregos Sisters comprise the entirety of the second generation of devakind:
- 3 Images suggestive of Thrygragos Lazareme, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008the Three Great Gods are Thrygragos Lazareme (aka sometimes the Lackland Libertine, but most commonly Thrygragos Everyman), Thrygragos Byron (aka both Bodiless Byron and the Unmoving One due to that fact that he’s all head, with his facial features frozen in the same expression, not because he can’t transport himself wherever he wants on the Inner Earth), and Thrygragos Varuna Mithras (who does not appear in “The Death’s Head Hellion” mini-novel for reasons noted in passing therein);
- the Great Gods are obliged to share the worship they receive from their devotional adherents, including their azuras and devic children, plus the adherents of their offspring, with the Moloch Sedon; similarly, they can no more disobey him than their offspring can disobey them;
- because they must have worshippers in order to flourish, Great Gods, like their offspring, are not allowed to kill lesser beings;
- if they do, Sedon will cathonitize, catasterize, or ill-star them (i.e., fuse their spirit selves or essences, often along with their power foci, though not their debrained daemonic bodies, with his such that they thereafter shine out of the night’s sky above the Hidden Headworld);
- the Three Great Goddesses are Trigregos Devaura (the Spirit or Soul), Trigregos Demeter (the Body), and Trigregos Sapiendev (the Mind); they do not appear in “The Death’s Head Hellion” mini-novel due to the fact that the Moloch Sedon abandoned them on the Second Weirworld comparatively shortly after the ignition of the First Weir Star;
- their terrible talismans do, however; hence why “The Death’s Head Hellion” mini-novel is an integral part of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ Trilogy;
- the Six Great Gods and Goddesses, possibly with spermatic contributions from the Moloch Sedon, are the lone parents of the third generation of devazurkind;
- like their solitary father Sedon, and the majority of their third generational offspring (the so-called Master Devas), they generally sport three visible eyes;
- the Trigregos Sisters are sometimes referred to as the three-in-one goddesses because, except to give birth to Master Devas, they rarely separate; hence why the third generation are always triplets.

[Online Note: the main pH-Webworld entry re the six Great Gods and Goddesses is here. A detailed list of their Master Deva offspring is here.]

  • Master Devas

- dictionaries often define ‘devas’ or ‘daevas’ as ‘the shining ones’; hence also the English word ‘devils’, meaning ‘little gods’;
- Hell to Earth artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s; colour and script by Jim McPherson, 2007collectively occasionally called Sedonites or Sedonists, the Outer Earth Bible’s Sheddim (meaning ‘demons’ in Hebrew, always plural, and sometimes spelled ‘shedim’) may refer to Master Devas;
- so might the Assyrian ‘Shedu’, defined as a protective or beneficent deity, since it too looks and sounds a little like Sedon; (museums such as the Louvre and the British Museum preserve effigies or simulacra of the Shedu as such, under that name);
- although some, notably the eventual Pauper Priestess and the Great God's firstborn Unities, came down from the moon to join Thrygragos Lazareme's expeditionary party circa 725 PD, most arrived on the then Whole Earth in 669 PD;
- Master Devas compose the third generation of devazurkind; the Trigregos Sisters always bore them simultaneously, in threesomes;
- they believe their fathers are one or another of the Thrygragos Brothers; hence why it’s accepted that there are only three devic tribes: the Lazaremists, the Byronics and the Mithradites;
- Mithradites, however, originally were much more abundant, by a factor of two to one, than either Lazaremists or Byronics;
- some point to this as proof the Moloch Sedon couldn’t resist making spermatic contributions of his own to their totality; Artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s, colour and text by Jim McPherson, 2007
- suchlike wise guys, and gals, therefore suspect there’s a fourth tribe of Master Devas, namely the Sedon Spawn; in Feel Theo, however, a certain eminently forgettable, ever-smiling fiend states to Mithras that they are proof that there are indeed only three devic tribes and that the third and by far the most populous of them is not Mithradic;
- like their fathers, if not their solitary grandfather, Master Devas are incapable of telling lies or violating their sworn oaths; they also generally sport three visible eyes and cannot disobey their fathers;
- in addition to wiping out thousands, if not millions, of Master Devas when they nuked the first Weir Star, the Dual Entities rendered surviving members of all three generations of devakind infertile;
- it was not until Master Devas gained daemonic bodies, starting a number of  decades prior to 2000 YD, that they were able to have children of their own; these were the equally immortal or near-immortal azura spirit beings, hence devazurkind;
- when Sedon himself, Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and, once in a while, unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants; the titular Death’s Head Hellion, for example, is believed to be a deviant.

[Online Note: as you may have already noticed, a detailed list of Master Devas broken down by tribe is here.]

  • The Firstborn Unities of Lazareme

Harmony, called Datong Harmonia by bygone Illuminaries of Weir on Earth; the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium (her pet project, a planetary panacea for beneficial devils and their worshipful multitudes alike);
Part of a mural by David Alfaro Siqueiros, woman struggling against chains reminiscent of Datong Harmonia, the Unity of Panharmonium, photo taken in 2005 by Jim McPherson, graphic prepared on PHOTOSHOP, 2007- reputedly, by a matter of a few seconds, the first Master Deva ever born; beauty incarnate as well as loveliness personified, conceivably the most popular devil on the entire Inner Earth in 4824/5;
- sphere of influence less so than devic protectorate: Sedon's Hairband (as opposed to his crown or headband), between the Hidden Headworld's occipital region and the Cattail Peninsula;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a golden torc, the so-called Necklace of, as you might expect, Harmony; from it she conjures her golden, chainmail gowns and the broken chains often seen manacled to her wrists; from them she sometimes shoots, what else?, chain lightning;
- her fortunately rarely manifested alter ego is the nihilistic Nemesis, a relentless avenger along the lines of the Classical Furies.

[Online Note: many more lynx re Harmony can be found from here, here and even here.]

========

Chaos, called Unholy Abaddon by bygone Illuminaries of Weir (after the Biblical Angel of Apollyon, the Bottomless Pit); the Unity of just that, Chaos; hence also Uncle Abe or Uncle Abe Chaos;
- sphere of influence less so than devic protectorate: the Hidden Headworld's Cattail Peninsula;
- his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Chaos Blade, which he keeps forever-sheathed out of fear of causing a chain reaction that would bring irreversible carnage to the world, if not the cosmos;
- its sheathe is the shaft or ‘danda’ of a trident or ‘trishula’; the trident’s prongs are the black blade’s hilt and side-guards; from it he shoots black bolts of lightning;
- boasts that he never possesses anyone;
A jumble of shots, most of which were found on the Web, indicative of Thrygragos Lazarene and his 3 Unities circa 4376 YD, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008- considered something of a scatterbrain in that he changes his outward appearance frequently, sometimes without even realizing he’s done so.

[Online Note: additional lynx re Abe Chaos can be found here.]

========

Order, called Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; the Unity of just that, Order; his brood brother sometimes refers to him as Odour or Ordure;
- from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman he shoots vajra bolts – white lightning of the non-alcoholic variety;
- sphere of influence less so than devic protectorate: the Hidden Headworld's occipital region;
- goes by Sparky when he’s in altogether human form;
- some consider him the inventor of the caste system, whereby devotees don’t have to be told what to do because they are born into their occupations;
- like virtually all Lazaremists, including their Great God of a father, Thrygragos Everyman, the Unities are at heart anarchists in that they consider rulers, and those who either make or enforce unnecessary rules, demonstrably wrong-headed and hence worthy only of scorn;
- although Lazaremists must obey their father, they really have only have the one rule, the golden rule (and not the one that says that those who have the gold make the rules): namely, ‘do unto others as you would others do unto you’
- Chaos and Order hate each other passionately; they’d seek to annihilate each other, and all that stands between them, if Harmony didn’t always do just that, stand – and sometimes not just stand – between them mollifyingly.

[Online Note: additional lynx re Lord Order can be found here. He appeared on the front cover of pH-3. There's more on the three firstborn Unities here.]

- a firstborn Mithradite known variously as Mithras’s Virgin, the Scarlet Empress, Seeress or Sorceress, the Crimson Queen to Tantal’s King Cold, and Miss Myth, after Mythland (the Jewel in Sedon’s Crown, on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head), her official, but evidently not-so-inviolable protectorate (in the western third of the Mystic Mountain range), beginning as a result of Thrygragon in 4376 YD;
- also known, accurately, if perhaps somewhat disrespectfully, as Hot Stuff; the red-skinned, almost always masked and thoroughly covered (in fabrics invariably coloured different shades of red) giantess whose power focus is a firebrand or matchstick (cane);
- a self-proclaimed death goddess, that of heat and fire, forever-lusted-after by the Moloch Sedon and her brood brother Tantal (King Cold); consequential other major mover behind the expansion of the Empire of Lathakra, which began circa 4730 YD;
- mother, while being subsumed by a be-brained daemon or demon pre-Genesea (the Great Flood of Genesis) of Klannit, the world’s first azura.

Tantal Thanatos
- firstborn Mithradite most commonly known as King Cold;
Collage suggestive of King Cold, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011- the Frozen Isle of Lathakra (off the Cattail Peninsula, on a map of the Hidden Headworld), once Sedon’s Horn then Sedon’s Lens, Monocle or Cataract (off Sedon’s Human Eye, the Gulf of Corona), is his devic protectorate;
- completely covered in ice and snow, with very much still active volcanoes, it's roughly the size and shape of Aegean Crete; Cold banned summer there when it was still Sedon's Horn;
- a gigantic, blue-skinned, icicle-bearded, archetypal-Viking whose power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a labrys (a double-headed war axe);
- self-proclaimed death god, that of cold and ice, he’s the major mover behind the expansion of the Empire of Lathakra, which began circa 4730 YD;
- pre-Dome father, while being subsumed by a be-brained daemon or demon pre-Genesea (the Great Flood of Genesis) of Klannit, the world’s first azura;
- besides his thought-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, probably the most prolific male Master Deva in terms of having azura offspring.

========

Klannit Thanatos, something of an anomaly in that she isn’t a Master Deva but is, instead, the world’s first known azura;
- as a possessive azura she is a spirit being incapable of gaining solidity by possessing debrained demons;
- conceived and given birth while be-brained daemons or demons subsumed her devic parents, Tantal and Methandra Thanatos, also otherwise just spirit beings at the time, prior to Xuthros Hor, the 10th patriarch of Golden Age Humankind, causing the Genesea or Great Flood of Genesis in Year Zero of the Dome;
- has no power focus or Tvasitar talisman as such, though she does have a very non-azura-like affinity for mirrors, which she can use for remote viewing and travelling between-space (the same as in-the-know witches use ensorcelled stones);
- unbeknownst to just about everyone, perhaps even including her parents, she and a highborn Lazaremist known as Tvasitar Smithmonger have been lovers – her via a succession of willing host-shells – seemingly forever.

Tvasitar Smithmonger, a third-born called Vulcanian, Anvil or Anvil the Artificer by his fellow devils;
- artisan considered a sort of devic demiurge or, slightly more accurately, Prometheus because his talismans couple with debrained daemonic bodies enabled Master Devas become individually solid beings;
- resides on Sedon’s Peak, in the centre of the Cattail Peninsula (Sedon’s Ponytail on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- since sometime a few decades before 2000 YD, he has been using molten Brainrock or Gypsium, the miraculous Godstuff bubbling out of the Peak’s lava lake, to forge devils their power foci or talismans, hence Tvasitar talismans and why he’s often thought of as the devic Prometheus;
- the cliffheads or cliff-faces overlooking the Peak’s lava lake, filled as it is with molten Brainrock or Gypsium, are said to resemble the Trigregos Sisters;
- his magnificent megalithic domicile, which he constructed atop the middle cliffhead, is known as the Prometheum;
- along with demons debrained by exposure to Brainrock, power foci or Tvasitar talismans allow Master Devas to become solid entities, which they never were until he discovered how to make them;
- his talisman is an anvil, hence Anvil the Artificer.

[Online Note: additional lynx re the devic smithy can be found here.]

========

Chance, called Wintry Moira by bygone Illuminaries of Weir;
- a fifth-born also known variously as Lazareme’s Luck, Fata Fortuna and, most commonly among devils, Dame Chance;
- because of her dangerously unpredictable attribute, coupled with her nevertheless undeniable attractiveness, some refer to her as the luscious Lady Luck;
- the devic half-mother of many eventual Legendarians (Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, a recurring deviant sometimes recalled as the legendary 30-Year Man or Woman, as well as 30-Beers);
- she’s the half-mother of the various members of Q-Troupe excluding, just perhaps, Squirrelly (Tomcat Tattletail);
- the half-mother of Master Morgan Abyss, aka the Death’s Head Hellion;
- her azuras are called Fatazurs;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the 3-spoke wheel of fortune traditionally known as the Triskelion.

Belialma, Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck (Hell on Earth, Pandemonium, Sedon’s Temple on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
Apple Goddess Collage most specific to Bouncing Belle, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008- Hell’s Belle, also sometimes called the luscious or lascivious Lady Lust as well as Bouncing, Beguiling or Bedazzling Belialma and variations thereof;
- a presumed second-born Mithradite (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born);
- power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Ruby Red Apple of Concupiscence; like her fellow Apple Goddesses, Concord and Discord, she carries it as the pupil of her third eye;
- always an object of desire, her reciprocal interests cross tribal boundaries to include not just Unholy Abaddon, the Unity of Chaos, and his brood brother, Lord Order, but their father, Thrygragos Lazareme;
- Bouncing Belle resides in her bastion of bliss overlooking Pandemonium, the capital of Satanwyck, where she entertains her paramours, who also include Zuvem Gravedigger Nergalis;
- as well as throughout 1000-Daze, plays a semi-significant role in Feel Theo.

- sometimes called Providence, as in the all-seeing eye thereof, among many another name or title;Pyrame as the Cretan Snake Goddess, Queen Tanith, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2004
- possibly the most important female Master Deva around in 4824/5 YD;
- a presumed ninth-born (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born);Collage reminiscent of Pyrame Silverstar, prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2008
- devic half-mother of all the Sed-sons (or sedons, small case); for mystical reasons, two or three of the mortal boys have to be born, on both sides of the Dome, every generation in order to maintain it;
- with neither a protectorate to call her home or a power focus to call her own, the secret to her success is generally thought to be the demon (presumably Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night) she occupies;
- unless programmed otherwise, All of Incain obeys her; hence why she can often be found occupying the She-Sphinx on the Prison Beach of Incain, at the bottom of the Cattail Peninsula (Sedon’s Ponytail on a map of the Hidden Headworld), about as far south as one can go on the Head without having to swim or ride in a boat;
- because of her complicated and never fully explained connection to the Female Entity, All of Incain and its inspiration if not probable creatrix, First Weir’s Mother Machine, as well as, arguably, the demon she generally controls, Pyrame’s the only Master Deva immune to Trinondev eyeorbs or prison pods;
- consequently, at least in terms of devils, though not azuras, only her and her seemingly forever-mate, the Moloch Sedon, can operate in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld) with impunity.

- called his Green Man due to his proclivity for assuming the form of a 3-eyed, vegetative human somewhat reminiscent of the work of the famous Milanese painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593 — slightly too late to have been a character in Contagion);

- despises Thrygragos Lazareme and his Unities because they did nothing to stop the expansion of the Empire of Lathakra, which cost her her traditional territory in and around Lake Sedona (named after her), in the midst of Iraxas (the Penile Peninsula, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld);

The Three Nergalids, Mithradite fertility gods individually thought of as the Planter (Zuvem Nergalis, better known to devils as Gravedigger), the Grower (Nergal Vetala), and the Reaper (Underlord Yama Nergal, King Harvest):

Gravedigger, a presumed fourth-born (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born);
- called Zuvem Nergalis by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; generally manifests himself black-skinned;
- nickname in part derives from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, which is a Brainrock spade with a razor edge, and in part because he’s sometimes called the Nergalids’ Planter even though he alternates planting duties (of Vetala-Fecundity) with King Harvest;
- among his other love interests include bedazzling Belialma (Hell’s Belle, once again Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck in 4824/5);
- an early-on-ally of the Thanatoids of Lathakra; more lynx here
========An ancient goddess with a moon-sickle, photographed in a one-time Roman bathouse, circa Nero's time, in  2008

King Harvest, Underlord Yama Nergal;
- a presumed fifth-born (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born);
- started to manifest himself as a skeletal Death God, complete with dark robe and hood, only a few decades prior to 4824/5 YD;
- also one of the three so-called Earthlings (his brood sister, Shal Ereshkigal, and his brood brother, Gibran Nimiki, being the other two); as such he often appeared robust and muscular as befits a God of Miners;
- along with his triplet-siblings and the two other Nergalids (Zuvem-Gravedigger and Vetala-Fecundity), another early-on-ally of the Thanatoids of Lathakra;
- originally, as befitting an Underlord, his power focus or Tvasitar talisman was a miner’s pickaxe;
- when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (formerly Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), he helped cathonitize Vanthysces, the Byronics’ Grim Reaper;
- he thereafter fused the latter’s power focus, a scythe, with his own, thereby cementing his position as the Nergalids’ Reaper even though he shares fecundating duties of Vetala with Gravedigger;
- more so than the Thanatoids of Lathakra, he’s considered the devils’ primary Death God; more lynx here
========

Vetala, Nergal Vetala, (up until shortly before the ‘Days of Disbelief', more commonly addressed as Fecundity by her fellow Master Devas;
Vetala as Moon Goddess Fecundity, image of a Judith figure shot in Florence, Italy, by Jim McPherson 2008- a presumed twelfth-born (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born);
- a Moon Goddess like Lunar Uma, a Byronic firstborn, in that she waxes and wanes with the moon on a monthly basis;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is considered a moon-sickle in that its blade is shaped like a crescent moon;
- Vetala-Fecundity becomes pregnant by one or the other male Nergalid come the New Moon and gives birth every Full Moon;
- her azuras, who number in the thousands – more like tens of thousands – by 4824/5, are called Vetalazurs or Nergalazurs, albeit only if their fathers were either Zuvem or Yama;
- Vetalazurs seem to be only good for animating Dead Things, thus in effect rendering them zombies;
- an early-on-ally of the Thanatoids of Lathakra; when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (formerly Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), thus displacing the Byronics who’d ruled it for millennia previously, she stayed behind to oversee its affairs on their behalf;
- Vetala resides in the former Weirdom of Manoa, called the Gleaming City due to its golden walls, at the time of “The Death’s Head Hellion” mini-novel;
- most of the husks animated by her azuras cannot function in pouring rain; that said, husks that were amphibious when alive can still swim now that they’re dead;
- despite this unusual drawback, the native Iraches worship her much more fervidly than they ever did her Byronic predecessors;
- this is because her azuras animate Irache Dead Things and the Iraches, who resemble North American aboriginals in almost every respect, always practised ancestor-worship; thanks to her they can now invite their deceased relatives over for tea and buttered scones;
- first appeared in pH-2; also made a memorable appearance in Feel Theo;

Geld Neargon, often called Toad (sometimes to his face), due to the fact he commonly appears as a hermaphroditic batrachian (toad), albeit one wearing a crown;
- said crown, his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, is properly known of the alchemical or elemental mitre (after his father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras); it consists of four layers: one rectangular, one triangular, one circular, and one conical; he sometimes calls it his noggin neutralizer; disrespectful devils often disparage it as his dunce cap;
- the Deva Dand or Lady-Lord of Androgynia, the Land of Neutrality, below Sedon’s Temple (Satanwyck) and cheek-side of Sedon’s Ear (the Aural Sea) on maps of the Hidden Headworld;
- dislikes being called the Neuter because both sets of reproductive organs are fully functional; he thus bears his own azuras;
- faithful to his beliefs, he refused to take sides during the Era of Empires, which was why the Thanatoids of Lathakra and their devic allies had to dispose of him prior to conquering (instead of just absorbing) Androgynia, his nominal protectorate;
 - Harmony, the Unity of Balance, admired Neargon’s unflagging support for her dream of the planetary panacea she referred to as Panharmonium so much so that concern over his disappearance, amongst many other Master Devas, during Lathakra’s expansion finally led her to a key discovery – the existence of ringots;
- also appeared (briefly) in Feel Theo;
- a presumed sixth-born (presumed because even Mithras was never certain what order his devic offspring were born), his main link is here
========

Djinn Domitian, Mithras’s lion-headed (leontocephalic) herald and primary Heliodromus or sun-runner until Thrygragon in 4376 YD;
- power focus or Tvasitar talisman was a fanfare trumpet, hence Mithras’s trumpeter;
- devils often referred to him as the Masochist since he enjoyed being dominated;
- sometimes depicted in Mithraea on the Outer Earth, where he’s generally known as Zurvan;
- featured most notably in Feel Theo, though does have a cameo, as an inanimate statue, in Hellion;
- more notes and lynx are here and here
========

Tammuz and Osiraq, Mithras’s eleventh-born torchbearers; sometimes depicted in Mithraea on the Outer Earth, where they’re commonly referred to as Cautes and Cautopates; devils think of them as Mid or Equinoctial Spring and Mid or Equinoctial Autumn;
- feature most notably in Feel Theo, though both have cameo appearances, as an inanimate statues, in Hellion, which is also where they their most significant, um, impacts (albeit mostly off-camera, as it were);
- devils addressed their triplet-brother as Midsummer;
- called Novadev by latter day Illuminaries;
- as detailed in both Feel Theo and Hellion, he was responsible for drunkenly destroying Strongyne (modern day Santorini), the Island of Strong Women, circa 2500 YD on the Outer Earth (1500 BCE), thus abruptly ending the so-called Mad Goddesses’ Mediterranean Matriarchate;
- for his troubles Sedon cathonitized him instantly — but the term ‘going Novadev-nuclear’ terrifies devils and Illuminaries of Weir alike in 4824/5;
- prior to Thrygragon, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras celebrated his feast day on Mithramas, Midwinter or the Winter Solstice; the day that marked the rebirth of the sun (in Imperial Rome, Sol Invictus was another name for Mithras); he left the other solstice and the two equinoxes to his three male favourites of his heyday (circa 2000 to 2500 YD, though his Age officially lasted until nearly 4400): Novadev, Tammuz and Osiraq (none of whom were named thus – by Illuminaries and/or Sarpedons returning to the Inner Earth in order to help revitalize the Utopian race trapped on the planet – until the Dome's 4th Millennium);

2. Deviants, Demons, Faeries and Mandroid Monstrosities

  • Deviants

When Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and occasionally unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants

the Legendarian, aka always Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, the legendary 30-Year Man or Woman, as well as 30-Beers; Collage suggestive of deviants appearing in 1000-Daze, Jim McPherson, 2011
- somewhat controversially, although he can come back as either a man or a woman, he generally considers himself a ‘he’; this, he claims (when attempting to appear modern no matter whose age it is), is due to the fact that he first came into being as a man and nothing can change that;
- a multitalented musician, painter and recurring tail- as well as taleteller who, whenever he returns to life (after dancing the legless limbo, as he puts it), does so in his son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, albeit not until they’re irrecoverably dying –  whereupon he or she recovers, though now as him, not him or her, despite looking nearly identical;
- evidently has never committed suicide out of fear that that’d be the end of his recurrences;
- all Legendarians develop a telltale scar in the middle of their forehead, about where a devil would have his or her third eye; it’s about the only physical difference between what they looked like before he took them over;
- when he comes back he keeps the memories of whomever he was previously but additionally brings with him his own memories, which date back to his first incarnation circa 4000 YD;
- can read tee-tee tails, which only Illuminaries of Weir, some witches and very few other non-devils can;
- even as a woman, he suffers from a procreative imperative (the compulsive need to reproduce such that he can succeed himself or herself, quite literally, lifetime after lifetime); as such, he may be the natural father of Morgan Abyss, the Death’s Head Hellion, as well as many a member of Q-Troupe;
- most crucially, Rumour’s quill, what Tethys sometimes calls his power pen as opposed to power focus, follows him from lifetime to lifetime;
- among many other purposes he uses it to draw himself and others between-space (the Weird, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), provided they’ve previously given him permission to do so;
- he can draw on anything, even the air itself, but generally draws on a pad of paper or parchment that he splotches out of the nib of his quill; he naturally calls it his splotch pad;
- Rumour’s quill being Brainrock, its ink is too; as such it never runs out;Tura's Allegory of Spring reminds me of Morgan Abyss, the Master of Weir circa 4825 YD
- anyone can use his quill while he’s dancing the legless limbo between lives but it always comes back to him whenever and wherever he reincarnates;
- it can, however, be stolen; if held or taken far enough away from him, he can’t will it back to himself either;
- more notes and lynx re the Legendarian are here and here, amongst probably many other places, including this one
========

Morgan Abyss, Melusine Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon in 4824/5, called the Death’s Head Hellion due to the fact that she manifests a death’s head atop her Master’s Mace as if it’s her personal gargoyle;
- the fact that she’s not a pureblood Utopian allowed Pyrame Silverstar and her demon (presumably Primeval Lilith) to take her over some years previously, whereupon they manoeuvred her into the Mastery of Weir
========

Pusan Wanderlust, a self-psychopomp or Wayfarer in the Wild Weird (between-space, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality);
Collage of fauns frolicking, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011- in this respect she’s like garudas, mutated ravendeer, the psycho-swans ridden by Valkyrie, pterippi flying horses such as Attis’s Pegasus, Kore’s hellhounds, All of Incain and virtually any devil who has a power focus, which is why Pyrame, who (in Feel Theo) had to give up all the Tvasitar talismans she’d acquired over the centuries on Thrygragon (Mithramas Day 4376 YD), began to rely on All in order to get around;
- also known as Trailblazer because she can supposedly track anyone between-space (aka the Weird or the Grey); most often called Goat, which she considers complimentary;
- a resolutely female faun or fauna (a female satyr) who’s been around perhaps 1,500 to 2,000 years longer than Quill Tethys (the Legendarian); fauns famously have a voracious appetite for sex;
- unlike Quill (the Legendarian), Pusan can only recur in her daughters or granddaughters (when they’re on the verge of dying);
- deviant father was Taurus Chrysaor Attis whereas her devic half-mother was most likely Amal-Althea, Lazareme’s female healer (who was seen occupying Pusan in Feel Theo);
- a pedum or shepherd's crook that once belonged to Goatfish, one of Byron’s female Zodiacals (Capricorn), who vanished during the heyday of the Outer Earth’s Goddess Culture circa 2000 to 2500 YD, automatically returns to her whenever she comes back to life;

Faun spotted and shot in NYC by Jim McPherson, 2009
Q-Troupe, presumed sons, daughters, grandsons and/or granddaughters of Quill Tethys (the Legendarian); 
- all claim Dame Chance (the Master Deva bygone Illuminaries named Wintry Moira) as their devic half-mother;
- all are over 20 in 4825 YD; 20 is the minimum age Legendarians can come back in their descendants (an age that, perhaps curiously, applies to incarnations of Pusan Wanderlust as well);
- a few have Jordan for a first name, some have Tethys for a last name, but all go by their Q-names: Quick, Quiff and Quit-It are triplets; Quail and Quack are twins; three others answer to Quaff whereas one accepts either Quiddity or ‘Quid’; the last of them, ‘Squirrelly’, eventually admits that his full name’s Tomcat Tattletail;
- all make their living as entertainers travelling in the same group, which is fronted by Dame Chance
========

Tomcat ‘Squirrelly’ Tattletail, possibly a deviant, a faerie trickster, a be-brained demon, the latest Daemonicus or, just maybe, an ever-smiling devil in disguise;
- a metamorph or shape-shifter; when on the Inner Earth, often affects the guise of Thrygragos Lazareme as Harmony most commonly sees him – as a blue-skinned, golden-haired pretty boy, albeit with only two sea-green eyes, which suggests he’s a faerie trickster more so than anything else;
- one theory is he’s what became of Rumour of Lazareme after faeries ate him circa 4000 YD; Harmony calls him trillion-timing Tommy, on account of he’s loved her and left her many times over the centuries;
- a master musician whose favourite instrument is (suggestively) a syrinx or panpipe;
- plenty of other lynx stem from here and there

  • Definite Demons

Lilith and Daemonicus, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010Primeval Lilith, Demon Queen of the Night; the thought-immortal queen of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons;
- imprisoned by the Dual Entities within All of Incain (then better known as Ginny the Gynosphinx) on the then Whole Earth sometime much earlier than 669 PD (pre-Dome), which is when the Sedonshem landed atop Kanin City, or even 725 PD, which is when the Sedonshem arrived on the Moon;
- fused with Pyrame Silverstar, then unnamed, sometime after All of Incain (at the time known as Ginny the Gynosphinx) ate the latter circa 725 PD (the year Thrygragos Lazareme led the devic expeditionary team down from the Moon, where the Sedonshem was hiding from the dozens of Utopian millennial or generational ships that had been pursuing devakind since time almost immemorial);
- a good place to start trolling for more on the lovely, if nowhere near lovable (except to other demons) Lily is here or here; there's a mite more in Pyrame's link here
========

Daemonicus, Dusted Daemonicus, possibly aka Smiler or the Smiling Fiend (the ‘A’ in the VAM Entity); possibly also Tomcat ‘Squirrelly’ Tattletail; reputedly indestructible, pre-Sedon king of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons;
- one probably incorrect theory is that he’s born, and reborn, of Mother Nature, as a counterbalance to the Moloch Sedon;
- there’s an, um, extract (excrement?) from Feel Theo re Daemonicus here; as per here, a nominal Daemonicus appeared in the phantacea comic books.

  • Mandroids

All the (self-proclaimed) Invincible She-Sphinx of Incain; once Ginny the Gynosphinx; Mandroid Mother Machine as well as occasional monster maker;
- ages-old construct of the Dual Entities, likely from their 61st lifetimes (as Alorus Ptah and Trishtar Thrae, the second version of the Biblical Adam and Eve);2sphinxes
- in all probability based on First or Second Weirworld’s technology; responsive to Pyrame Silverstar due to the Pauper Priestess’s purported duplication of the Female Entity’s brain patterns in the distant recesses of linear time (possibly during the Male Entity’s 3rd lifetime, which in part took place on the first Weirworld);
- All’s head resembles that of the Female Entity whereas the head of the Egyptian Sphinx (aka Andy the Androsphinx, her long dormant male counterpart) originally resembled that of the Male Entity;Shot of a demon, behind glass, taken by Jim McPherson in Lima, Peru, in 1998 and modified on PHOTOSHOP in 2007
- more often than not huge and winged; a therefore perhaps surprisingly mobile psychopomp – meaning she can travel at will through the Weird (between-space, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), though always leaves a root of herself behind on the Prison Beach of Incain;
- used by devils, especially Unmoving Byron and Varuna Mithras (prior to Thrygragon), as both a temporary holding cell or as a long-term prison for their transgressing fellows;
- rather, Mithras’s firstborn deviant son, Chrysaor Attis, who ceased recurring as of Thrygragon, stuck devils in All on his father’s behalf;
- in addition to their fathers, though not the Moloch Sedon, whom she’s designed to eat, All tends to be responsive to highborn devils;
- although possessed of a modicum of sentience, if not much in the way of actual intelligence, still a machine; can be turned off and on as well as reprogrammed;
- there’s all sorts more on the She-Sphinx here
========

Magnus Minus, origin unspecified, might be a demon but, just as likely, might be a mandroid; may have been a monster made by All of Incain, the Dual Entities or even Pyrame, through All, since she seems to know a lot about him – including how to revive him after howsoever many centuries of moribundity;An unidentified painting spotted in the Met Museum in NYC done in the style of Hieronymous Bosch, photo by Jim McPherson, 2009
- self-proclaimed as well as self-named mighty Minotaurus of Minius (Absudyl, the Subterranean Realm of the Mandroids);
- regardless of whether he’s more mandroid than demon, he’s a daemonic demiurge, one who fancies himself a latter day Daemonicus in that he’s a demon king lacking subjects but completely capable of fashioning them;
- Minius, which Magnus Minus also named, after himself, is the western terminus of the Upper Head’s Hell-Well (which begins in Satanwyck, Sedon’s Temple on a map of the Hidden Headworld); as such, it lies directly beneath the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land);
- the double-click to the right reveals Pyrame as the Perpetual Presence (which should give you an idea of how I'm leaning with respect to who created Magnus Minus, albeit with this additional hint);
- more on the more often mightily minute Minotaurus links from here

3. Mortal Descendants of Original Extraterrestrials

  • Utopians of Weir on Earth

- Utopians living in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon at the time of the Death’s Head Hellion are brought up to hate the Moloch Sedon and his devic progeny;
- oddly, as if to prove their non-Earth heritage, pureblood Utopian men are always black whereas Utopian women are invariably white;The caption reads: Mythos Utopian Eyeorbs Manifesting Gargoyle; images of Cacuceus and Gargoyles were taken from the Internet and  put together by Jim McPherson, using PHOTOSHOP, in 2004
- hybrid or mixed-blood Utopians of either sex living in or around former Weirdoms on the Inner Earth tend to be indistinguishable by skin colour;
- the few pureblood Utopians (U-bloods) who yet live beyond the Dome on the Outer Earth avoid having children by purebloods of the opposite sex because their offspring still look to be of a different race than one or the other of their parents;
- mortal, if usually long-lived by human standards, their equally atheistic ancestors pursued the Sedonshem throughout the cosmos from their bases on the first then second Weirworlds;
- with never-demoralizing, yet only rare successes, their forefathers desired nothing less than to eradicate devakind before they could spread even more of their corruptive immorality;
- the be-all and end-all of Utopians stuck on the Whole Earth (either beneath the Cathonic Dome or due only in part to an absence of functional spacecraft beyond it) remains the destruction of their ancient enemies;
- stacks of quotes taken from various phantacea Mythos publications link from here.
========

- Illuminaries of Weir, Utopian polymaths, supposedly learned in a wide variety of not-necessarily-related matters; the highest educated class in Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- often act as advisors to the reigning Master, who’s usually elevated from their rank; very seldom are they not pure U-bloods;
- Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of Weir in 4824/5, is not a fully trained Illuminary, just well-studied;
- an outsider born in the subcontinent of Aka Godbad (Sedon’s mouth, lower lip, lower jaw and goatee on maps of the Hidden Headworld), she attained her Mastery mostly because she was secretly possessed of Pyrame Silverstar, a ninth-born Mithradite and Sedon’s favourite since long before devils arrived on the Whole Earth en masse in 669 PD
========

- Scientocrats of Weir, still nominally scientists but, by the time period of “The Death’s Head Hellion”, long more like functionaries charged with keeping Weir’s archaic, First and Second Weirworld machinery operating as well as it can;
- even though they’re highly educated, most scientocrats are specialists in their chosen fields; they can’t match Illuminaries when it comes to sheer breadth of knowledge
========

- Imbeciles of Weir, also the idiots of Weir; inbred and therefore very much low functioning Utopians; almost always purebloods, hence the inbreeding;
- they nevertheless live much longer than most non-Utopians, sometimes into their 2nd or 3rd Century, longer in very rare cases; their longevity is due in large measure to the “food” churned out by the Weirdom’s replication units, all of which were salvaged from their grounded and thence buried millennial or generational vessels;
- they leach off the Sarpedon underclass’s mental emanations; it is the imbeciles of Weir whose own mental emanations empower the Master of Weir and thereby keep everything extraterrestrial that still works still working
========

- Trinondevs of Weir, Weir’s Warrior Elite, almost always purebloods who manage to overcome their inbreeding in order to function as soldiers;
- their main weapons are ever-so-useful eye-staves, the eyeorbs atop of which double as prison pods in that they can suck devic and azura spirit being out of the shells they’re occupying and into them, thus incarcerating them;
- once an eyeorb is full it ceases to function as anything except a prison pod; if it’s not replaced, the eye-stave becomes useless; Trinondevs, who can be male or female in 4824 YD, tend to wear robes or gowns, hoods and veils, when going into action;
- their eyeorbs operate by willpower; among many another thing, they can manufacture near-impenetrable house- or personal-gargoyles about their wielders and project solid bursts or rays via psycho- or telekinesis
========

- the Sarpedon Underclass; named after the Sarpedon dynasty of Ancient Crete from the time of the Mediterranean Goddess Culture out there (roughly 2000-1500 BCE, 2000-2500 YD);
- Sarpedons were Utopians trapped beyond the Dome thousands of years earlier, Minoans (also called Etocretans) were human whereas the followers of Europa’s mythological third son Rhadamanthys were devils;
- Pyrame Silverstar was Queen Tanith throughout that time but there remains considerable debate as to whether the Moloch Sedon was Rhadamanthys;
- Pyrame believes that to be the case but readers of “Feeling Theocidal” know the real identity of this Rhadamanthys;
- NOTE 1: suitably twigged, the myth of Europa, sister of eventual King Cadmus of Thebes, and her abduction from Asia Minor by Zeus, while in the form of a pristine-perfect, White Bull, is one of the foundational building blocks of the PHANTACEA Mythos;
- NOTE 2: the phantacea version of Europa and Cadmus has them living at the end of the mad goddesses’ Middle Sea matriarchate rather than at the beginning; in other words, circa 1500 BCE (2500 YD) rather than 2000 BCE (2000 YD);
- Sarpedons did not begin returning to the Inner Earth until circa 1000 BCE (3000 YD); their return allowed Utopians throughout the Inner Earth to revitalize their degenerating species;
- by the time of “The Death’s Head Hellion”, however, their descendants, while still largely pureblood, are treated much like slaves or Hindu Untouchables by the imbeciles of Weir, who leach off their potent mental emanations like psychic vampires
========


Cabalarkon, Cabby the Daddy, the Undying Utopian; a biogeneticist when he lived and worked on, or travelled off of, the First Weirworld;
- when he was a wholly alive Utopian Scientocrat the Dual Entities used his right eye to jumpstart the process that resulted in the Moloch Sedon, hence Cabby the Daddy;
- currently subsists in a tub of life-preserving but animation-suspending Cathonic Fluid beneath the Citadel of the Thinkers in Cabalarkon City;
- it, like the rest of the territory composing the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head), is named after him.

Sedon Plague 5456 to 5476 – “Contagion Collectors”

(Extracted from a capsulated character companion for ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ Trilogy)

Datong Harmonia, collage by Jim McPherson ,2009Cover for Contagion Collectors, artwork prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010Despite often violent suppression by forces blinkered by monotheistic absolutism, at the height of the Renaissance seekers after secrets are determined to discover all there is to know about the universe.

Yet, right here on the earth beneath their feet, there is no bigger secret than that there is a Cathonic Dome. The second biggest secret beyond the Cathonic Dome is that a continent the size of Africa lies underneath it.

Two hundred years earlier, someone who knew all there was to know about the Hidden Headworld was none other than the infamous, panpipe-playing Rat Catcher of Hamelin.

Three Outer Earthlings you may have heard of play howsoever insignificant roles in Contagion. They are Twisted Tommy (Tomas de Torquemada, age 56), Bosco (Hieronymous Bosch, age 26), and Dire (Albrecht Durer, age 4).

Dire and Drang (a hound, not yet a dachshund) are having a wonderful boy/dog adventure until four already much feared riders on psychopomp-steeds burst into their hence no longer exclusive paradise, the Garden of Earthy Delights.

As for the god by then sitting high above them all, in a Brainrock throne on a mushroom cloud, he's the deviant half-son of two of the terrifying riders, the one with the buzzsaw scales and the one with the bow and already notched arrow.

1. Shining Ones: First, Second and Third Generation Devils

  • The Moloch Sedon

- the seemingly immortal, but nowhere-near-almighty, All-Father of Devazurkind; the Devil Himself, capitalized;
- solitary member of the first generation of devazurkind; acknowledged king of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons since Ragnarok, circa 234 PD (Pre-Dome);
- grown or developed, more so than engendered let alone created, by the Male and Female Entities on the Trigon Asteroid, part of the First Weir System, in the dim recesses of the time-space continuum;
- the Entities started the process that resulted in the Moloch by using the right eye of Cabalarkon, a then wholly alive Utopian biogeneticist, for raw material; consequently Sedon still regards the now undying Utopian as his father, hence Cabby the Daddy;
- in the Year of the Dome (YD) Zero (4000 BCE), Sedon used his essence to form the Cathonic Zone or Dome (consequently also the Sedon Sphere) in order to separate the consequential Outer Earth from the thereafter Inner Earth of Sedon’s Head;
- the mighty Eye-Mouth in the Sky, as depicted on the back cover of “The War of the Apocalyptics” (the predecessor in terms of phantacea print publications to 1000-Daze), is Star Sedon; details of his origin appeared in “Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea”, a graphic novel published in 1990; somewhat atypically in term of the phantacea Mythos, Sedon deigns to make a personal appearance in “The Death’s Head Hellion”;
- the bulk of the “Contagion Collector” mini-novel takes place between YD 5456 and YD 5476 (A.D. 1456-1476), by which time Sedon has been using an additional part of his essence to protect the Weirdom of Cabalarkon from the Ghostlands’ still rampant radioactivity for in excess of 600 years;
- see also here.

========

  • The Six Great Gods and Goddesses

The Thrygragos Brothers and Trigregos Sisters comprise the entirety of the second generation of devakind:
- the Three Great Gods are Thrygragos Lazareme (aka sometimes the Lackland Libertine, but most commonly Thrygragos Everyman), Thrygragos Byron (aka both Bodiless Byron and the Unmoving One due to that fact that he’s all head, with his facial features frozen in the same expression, not because he can’t transport himself wherever he wants on the Inner Earth), and Thrygragos Varuna Mithras;
- neither Byron nor Mithras appear in the mini-novel; however, there is more than mere mention of a eminently forgettable, but possibly not apocryphal, individual known as the VAM Entity – Thrygragos Varuna Ahriman Mithras (the reference harkens back to passages of “Feeling Theocidal”, Book One of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’);
- the ostensible ‘A’ in the VAM Entity has too many fingers on his hands and they in turn have too many joints or knuckles per digit;
- he also plays a mean panpipe and goes by any number of names; they include Smiler, the Smiling Fiend, the Judge, Judge Druj (meaning ‘the Lie’), Bad Rhad and Rhadamanthys;
- Pyrame (Providence) is among those who believe this Rhadamanthys was actually the Moloch Sedon during the 500-year-long, so-called man-hating, mad goddesses’ Middle Sea matriarchate that lasted from roughly 2000 to 1500 BCE on the Outer Earth (YD 2000-2500);
- Smiler considers himself the rightful Demon King; apparently Sinistral Envy concurs, which strongly suggests the panpipe-playing fiend might actually be the Moloch Sedon slumming, something the then Legendarian suspected when he came close to encountering one or the other (unless they really are the same) in Feel Theo;
- because they must have worshippers in order to flourish, Great Gods, like their offspring, are not allowed to kill lesser beings;
- if they do, Sedon will cathonitize, catasterize, or ill-star them (i.e., fuse their spirit selves or essences, often along with their power foci, with his such that they thereafter shine out of the night’s sky above the Hidden Headworld);
- the Three Great Goddesses are Trigregos Devaura (the Spirit or Soul), Trigregos Demeter (the Body), and Trigregos Sapiendev (the Mind); they do not appear in the mini-novel;
- their terrible talismans do, however; hence why "Contagion Collectors" is an integral part of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ Trilogy;
- see also here.

========

  • Master Devas

- dictionaries often define ‘devas’ or ‘daevas’ as ‘the shining ones’; hence also the English word ‘devils’, meaning ‘little gods’;
- Master Devas compose the third generation of devazurkind; the Trigregos Sisters always bore them simultaneously, in threesomes;
- they believe their fathers are one or another of the Thrygragos Brothers; hence why it’s accepted that there are only three devic tribes: the Lazaremists, the Byronics and the Mithradites;
- when Sedon, Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and, once in a while, unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants;
- see also here.

========

  • The Firstborn Unities of Lazareme

Harmony, called Datong Harmonia by bygone Illuminaries of Weir on Earth; the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium (her pet project, a planetary panacea for beneficial devils and their worshipful multitudes alike);
- reputedly, by a matter of a few seconds, the first Master Deva ever born; beauty incarnate as well as loveliness personified;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a golden torc, the so-called Necklace of, as you might expect, Harmony; from it she conjures her golden, chainmail gowns and the broken chains often manifested manacled to her wrists; from them she sometimes shoots, what else?, chain lightning;
- her fortunately rarely manifested alter ego is the nihilistic Nemesis, a relentless avenger along the lines of the Classical Furies;
- see also here.
========

Chaos, called Unholy Abaddon by bygone Illuminaries of Weir (after the Biblical Angel of Apollyon, the Bottomless Pit); the Unity of just that, Chaos;
- his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Chaos Blade, which he keeps forever-sheathed out of fear of causing a chain reaction that would bring irreversible carnage to the world, if not the cosmos;
- see also here;
========

Order, called Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur, or variations thereof, by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; the Unity of just that, Order;
- from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman he shoots vajra bolts – white lightning of the non-alcoholic variety;
- goes by Sparky when he’s in altogether human form;
- Chaos and Order hate each other passionately; they’d seek to annihilate each other, and all that stands between them, if Harmony didn’t always do just that, stand between them mollifyingly;
- see also here.

========

  • Significant Additional Lazaremists

Chance, called Wintry Moira by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; a fifth-born also known variously as Lazareme’s Luck, Fata Fortuna and, most commonly among devils, Dame Chance;
- because of her dangerously unpredictable attribute, coupled with her nevertheless undeniable attractiveness, some refer to her as the luscious Lady Luck;
- sometimes regarded as the Legendarian’s charming devic stalker since she seems to seek him out for purposes procreative wherever he recurs;
- as such, the devic half-mother of many eventual Legendarians (Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, a recurring deviant sometimes recalled as the legendary 30-Year Man or Woman, as well as 30-Beers);
- the half-mother, for example, of Master Morgan Abyss, aka the Death’s Head Hellion, who is often mentioned in the mini-novel;
-  her azuras are called Fatazurs;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the 3-spoke wheel of fortune traditionally known as the Triskelion;
- see also here.
========

Skinless, the Skinless Rasp, or variations thereof; a comparatively lowborn Lazaremist called by bygone Illuminaries Rastha Aragon;
- a White Godling flagellant with a flail for a power focus;
- seems to have a strangely loving relationship with Fangfingers (Faustus Vladuca);
- chosen (in 5474) by the Unities and the Terrible Twins’ parents, Zalman and Melina, to ‘occupy’ Janna Somata when she gets married and whenever she conceives and bears children;
- since her deviant offspring would be as unimpressive as her, the choice is a deliberate slap in the face to the Mithradites, who are scheduled to resume governorship of the Weirdom of Kanin City come 5500 YD (AD 1500);
- see also here.
========

Fangfingers, a comparatively lowborn Lazaremist called by bygone Illuminaries Faustus Vladuca after a combination of Dacian, Carpathian, Gothic and/or Slavonic deities, folk legends or heroes;
- devils tend to refer to him as the Fop because he fancies himself something of a fashion plate, one with a penchant for wearing a black opera cape with red lining;
- has, for a power focus, a Brainrock glove with fangs rather than claws on its fingertips;
- a Black Godling with an unsavoury reputation for sadism in that he welcomes animal sacrifice;
- seems to have a strangely loving relationship with the Skinless Rasp (Rastha Aragon);
- chosen (in 5474) by the Unities and the Terrible Twins’ parents, Zalman and Melina, to ‘occupy’ Sraddha Somata when he gets married and whenever he fathers children;
- since his deviant offspring would be as unimpressive as him, the choice is a deliberate slap in the face to the Mithradites, who are scheduled to resume governorship of the Weirdom of Kanin City come 5500 YD (AD 1500);
- see also here.
========

  • Significant Mithradites

Belialma, Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck (Hell on Earth, Pandemonium, Sedon’s Temple on a map of the Hidden Headworld); Hell’s Belle, also sometimes called the luscious or lascivious Lady Lust as well as Bouncing, Beguiling or Bedazzling Belialma and variations thereof;
- a second-born Mithradite whose power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Ruby Red Apple of Concupiscence; like her fellow Apple Goddesses, Concord and Discord, she carries it as the pupil of her third eye;
- always an object of desire, her reciprocal interests cross tribal boundaries to include not just Unholy Abaddon, the Unity of Chaos, and his brood brother, Lord Order, but their father, Thrygragos Lazareme;
- Bouncing Belle resides in her bastion of bliss overlooking Pandemonium, the capital of Satanwyck (Hell on Earth), where she entertains her paramours, who also number Zuvem ‘Gravedigger’ Nergalis and, centuries earlier, King Cold (Tantal Thanatos) and Cruel Plathon, the Bull of Mithras, neither of whom appear in the mini-novel;
- wants to ‘occupy’ Janna Somata when the latter gets married and whenever she conceives and bears children; that way her deviant offspring would be as impressive as Hell’s Belle is and always has been;
- Mithradites are scheduled to resume governorship of the Weirdom of Kanin City come 5500 YD (AD 1500); Belle, who’s bored of being the vice-regent or surrogate ruler of Hell on Earth, reckons she’d rather run the Mastery of Marutia through Janna when that day arrives;
- see also here.
========

Gravedigger, a fourth-born called Zuvem Nergalis by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; generally manifests himself black-skinned, like a male Utopian of Weir;
- name in part derives from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, which is a Brainrock spade with a razor-sharp edge, and in part because he’s sometimes called the Nergalids’ Planter even though he actually alternates planting duties (of Vetala-Fecundity) with King Harvest;
- among his other love interests include bedazzling Belialma (Hell’s Belle, still Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck in 5476);
- figures he should ‘occupy’ Sraddha Somata when the latter gets married and whenever he fathers children; that way his deviant offspring would be as impressive as Zuvem is and always has been, at least in his mind;
- Mithradites are scheduled to resume governorship of the Weirdom of Kanin City come 5500 YD (AD 1500); Gravedigger reckons he deserves to rule the Mastery of Marutia through Sraddha when that day arrives;
- see also here.
========

Sinistral Envy, a lower-born called Bobby Badboy or, less frequently, Robin Goodfellow by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; generally manifests himself as a cupid or putto, which is why devils, somewhat incorrectly, tend to refer to him as Cupidity;
- realizes his much higher born sister, Bouncing Belle, is bored of acting as Sedon’s viceroy, the surrogate ruler of Satanwyck (Sedon’s Temple, Hell on Earth), and figures he’s in line to succeed her when she moves to take over the Mastery of Marutia;
- like virtually everyone else, possibly including Sedon himself, he has no recollection that someone else has a greater claim to the throne of Hell until he manifests himself visually in front of him; that someone else is a certain myrionymous, always smiling fiend with too many fingers on his hands and they with too many knuckles;
- see also here.
========  

  • Moderately Significant Byronics

APM All-Eyes, lone daughter born in Bodiless Byron’s third brood; as such a member of his secondary Nucleus (along with her triplet brothers, Damon Goldenrod and Nevair Neverknight, who don’t appear in the mini-novel);
- a love goddess, Byron’s Venus, bygone Illuminaries of Weir named her Aphropsyche Morningstar, hence APM;
- likes to appear as if composed entirely of eyes, hence All-Eyes;
-  her flutter-eyes (winged eyeballs, which she can externalize and sometimes uses as spies) are also called ‘little angels’; it seems they have the capacity to retain what they see as well as just long-distance-transmit what they’re seeing or have seen to APM;
-  her witch-followers, who aren't just confined to the Byronics’ territory of Aka Godbad at the time of the mini-novel, are known as love-loving Afrites;
- see also here.
========

Djerrid Ruin, Byron’s Bowman, one of Byron’s autumnal Zodiacals, as such associated with Sagittarius the Archer;
- called his Green Man due to his proclivity for assuming the form of a 3-eyed, vegetative human somewhat reminiscent of the work of the famous Milanese painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593);
- his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a bow and quiver full of arrows;
- see also here.
========

  • More Lazaremists

Rumour of Lazareme: devic half-father of the first Legendarian;
- probably does not appear in “Contagion Collectors”, but is mentioned in it fairly frequently because his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, a multipurpose Brainrock quill, transfers to the Legendarian, a recurring deviant who, whenever he returns to life, does so in his dying son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter;
- Rumour was supposedly eaten by faeries circa 4000 YD in the Land of Daybreak (nowadays Crepuscule, the Land of Twilight);
- his putative son, the recurring Legendarian, seems to think (possibly wrongly) that he became Tomcat Tattletail sometime after they ate him;
- the Legendarian also thinks that Tomcat was the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin; in this he is probably correct; (Tomcat is the panpipe-playing faerie trickster who often takes on the guise of Thrygragos Lazareme and thereby both seduces and bedevils Harmony; evidently he’s done this frequently over the centuries leading up to “Contagion Collectors”);
- many devils, however, suspect that the Legendarian is what became of Rumour of Lazareme after he committed devic suicide by cutting out his third eye after the collapse of Phantast and Strife’s Crimson Conspiracy on the Outer Earth circa 4000 YD (Year Zero A.D.); in other words, they don’t believe the Legendarian is a deviant;
- see also here.
========

Librarian, Biblio Drek, sometimes called Specks due to the fact that his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a pair of three-lens eyeglasses (as depicted in “Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea”, a graphic novel published in 1990 that he in part narrates);
- Lazaremist ambassador to the rededicated Weirdom of Kanin City since roughly 4825 YD;
- see also here.
========

Krepusyl Evenstar, second-born sometimes called Miss Mist or the Grey Lady; reputedly Harmony’s closest and perhaps only female friend;
- primary devic over-ruler of faeries-friendly Crepuscule, the Land of Twilight (Sedon’s Outer Nose on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- conceivably Lazareme’s Venus since her power focus or Tvasitar talisman, a Holy Water Sprinkler, is also called a Morgenstern (morning star, a barbed ball on a short, chain-link cable or cord);
- formerly Mariamne Dawnstar, she once of the Land of Daybreak on the other side of the Hidden Headworld;
- see also here.
========

Tvasitar Smithmonger, a third-born called Vulcanian, Anvil or Anvil the Artificer by his fellow devils; resides in the Prometheum atop Sedon’s Peak, in the centre of the Cattail Peninsula (Sedon’s Ponytail on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- since sometime a few decades before 2000 YD, he has been using molten Brainrock or Gypsium, the miraculous Godstuff bubbling out of the Peak’s lava lake, to forge devils their power foci or talismans, hence Tvasitar talismans and why he’s often thought of as the devic Prometheus;
-  his talisman is an anvil, hence Anvil the Artificer;
-  mentioned but does not appear in the mini-novel;
- see also here.
========

Irisiel Mercherm, Lazareme’s preferred Heliodromus or sun-runner; called Speedy by devils for reasons obvious;
- see also here.

========

  • More Byronics

Chimaera Glimmenmare, ever-changing second-born Nucleoid often thought of as Byron’s stallion even though he changes sex almost as often as he shifts shape;
- like his fellow Primary Nucleoids, he once frequented Iraxas (the Penile Peninsula, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), where Nergal Vetala has been ruling since the expanding empire of Lathakra drove Byronics back to the Godbadian subcontinent in the 48th Century of the Dome;
- centaurs worship him; evidently he can also control pterippi psychopomps (winged horses such as Attis’s Pegasus in “Feeling Theocidal”, Book One of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy; ones with the ability to travel between-space);
- along with triplet siblings, Sedona Spellbinder and Devil Wind (the Whirling Deva, aka Vayu Maelstrom), featured in “The War of the Apocalyptics”; only appears briefly near the end of “Contagion Collectors”;
- see also here and here.
========

Pyçonja Volant, called Fish Face by many devils on account of she sometimes looks like an anthropomorphic shark, albeit one with legs, arms and wings (hence her surname) rather than fins;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a fisherman or fisherwoman’s barbed gaffing hook;
- worshipped by humanoid amphibians in the Gulf of Aka, which suggests the Death’s Head Hellion (Morgan Abyss) may have been brought up praying to her;
- devic half-mother of Fisherwoman (aka Scylla Nereid, a major character in “The Trigregos Gambit”, Book Three of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy);
- see also here.
========

Camorva Freeflight, lepidopterous or moth-like Byronic whose elongated body is also somewhat dachshund-like; perhaps best envisioned as a hollow, vermicular tube with moth-like wings;;
- see also here.
========

— Yati, Byron’s Dragon (beware his burps);
- a highborn Byronic first depicted in “Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea, a graphic novel published in 1990, but only appears a couple of times in “Contagion Collectors” and then only briefly;
- in his human form goes by Hiyati Samarand, after his unofficial protectorate (Samarand, once Sedon’s Tongue, now lies on the occipital side of Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head);
- as such appeared during the phantacea comic book series;
- see also here.
========

Vanthysces, called Scarecrow by devils, once the Byronic Grim Reaper as well as the main devic overseer of Iraxas (Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- King Harvest (Yama Nergal) fused his scythe with his own pickaxe just before he (Vanthysces) was cathonitized in the Dome’s 48th Century;
- other than as a fairly bright star in the night’s sky (the Sedon Sphere) above Iraxas, Scarecrow (Vanthysces) hasn't been seen since;
- see also here, here and here.

========

  • More Mithradites

Methandra Thanatos, a firstborn Mithradite known variously as Mithras’s Virgin, the Scarlet Empress, Seeress or Sorceress, the Crimson Queen to Tantal’s King Cold, and Miss Myth, after Mythland (the Jewel in Sedon’s Crown on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head;
- does not appear in “Contagion Collectors” but is mentioned occasionally;
- see also here.
========

Tantal Thanatos, a firstborn Mithradite most commonly known as King Cold;
- the Frozen Isle of Lathakra (off the Cattail Peninsula on a map of the Hidden Headworld), once Sedon’s Horn then Sedon’s Lens, Monocle or Cataract (off Sedon’s Human Eye, the Gulf of Corona), is his devic protectorate;
- does not appear in “Contagion Collectors” but is mentioned occasionally;
- see also here.
========

Phantast Thanatos, the third of the firstborn Thanatoid Death Gods; called Dream or Dreamweaver by devils;
- cathonitized circa 4000 YD for masterminding the Crimson Conspiracy on the Outer Earth along with Strife (Mithras’s Ewe for Aries, aka Kore-Eris, Discord, Kanin Marut, Fitna Marutia, among many other names);
- does not appear in “Contagion Collectors” but is mentioned occasionally;
- see also here.
========

Pyrame Silverstar, the Pauper Priestess, the fabulously female (adult) Perpetual Presence; sometimes called Providence, among many another name or title;
- unless programmed otherwise, All of Incain obeys her; hence why she can often be found occupying the She-Sphinx on the Prison Beach of Incain, at the bottom of the Cattail Peninsula (Sedon’s Ponytail on a map of the Hidden Headworld), about as far south as one can go on the Head without having to swim or ride in a boat;
- does not appear very often in “Contagion Collectors”;
- see also here.
========

King Harvest, Underlord Yama Nergal, a fifth-born, so-called Earthling (his brood sister, Shal Ereshkigal, and his brood brother, Gibran Nimiki, being the other two);
- when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (better known as Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), he helped cathonitize Vanthysces, the Byronics’ Grim Reaper;
- he thereafter fused the latter’s power focus, a scythe, with his own, a miner’s pickaxe; thereby cemented his position as the Nergalids’ Reaper even though he shares fecundating duties of Vetala with Gravedigger;
- unchallenged devic ruler of the radioactive Ghostlands since circa 4825 YD;
- more so than the Thanatoids of Lathakra, he’s considered the devils’ primary Death God;
- see also here.
========

Vetala, Nergal Vetala, more commonly addressed as Fecundity by her fellow Master Devas; also called the Nergalids’ Grower;
- though only a twelfth-born Mithradite, she’s a Moon Goddess like Lunar Uma, a Byronic firstborn; her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is considered a moon-sickle in that its blade is shaped like a crescent moon;
- Vetala becomes pregnant by one or the other male Nergalid come the New Moon and gives birth every Full Moon;
- her azuras, who number in the thousands – more like tens of thousands – are called Vetalazurs or Nergalazurs, albeit only if their fathers were either Zuvem or Yama;
- Vetalazurs seem to be only good for animating Dead Things, thus in effect rendering them zombies;
- when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (better known, once again, as Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), thus displacing the Byronics who’d ruled it for millennia previously, she stayed behind to oversee its affairs on their behalf;
- despite commonly having vaguely greenish skin, blood-red lips and too-sharp teeth, when not pregnant, considered something of a mouth-wateringly beautiful temptress;
- by tradition vetalas (lower case) manifest themselves with their hands on the wrong wrists; Vetala, though, seldom remembers to appear this way;
- Vetala resides in the former Weirdom of Manoa, called the Gleaming City due to its golden walls, at the start of “Contagion Collectors”;
- only appears briefly in the mini-novel;
- see also here.
========

Tammuz and Osiraq, Mithras’s onetime torchbearers; sometimes depicted in Mithraea on the Outer Earth, where they’re commonly referred to as Cautes and Cautopates;
- not just devils nowadays think of them as either the Idiot or Atomic Twins after their part in rendering the Ghostlands radioactive in 4825 YD;
- only mentioned in the mini-novel;
- see also here.
— various Apocalyptics are mentioned but only the Primary Four (War, Death, Plague and Catastrophe – the ones featured in The War of the Apocalyptics) show up, albeit off-camera;
- see also here.
— the same is true of the two surviving Reptilians from Mithras’s Eighth: Klizarod Rex and the Emperor Chameleon;
- see also here.

2. Deviants, Demons, Faeries and Mandroid Monstrosities

  • Deviants

    When Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and occasionally unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants:
    - in many respects, the action in “Contagion Collectors” is deviant-driven.

    ========

    the Legendarian, aka always Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, the legendary 30-Year Man or Woman, as well as 30-Beers;
    - a multitalented musician, painter and recurring tail- as well as taleteller who, whenever he returns to life, does so in his son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, albeit not until they’re irrecoverably dying, whereupon they recover, though now as him, not them despite looking nearly identical;
    - depicted in "Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea", which he in part narrates);
    - all Legendarians develop a telltale scar in the middle of their forehead, about where a devil would have his or her third eye; it’s about the only physical difference between what they looked like before he took them over;
    - when he comes back he keeps the memories of whomever he was previously but additionally brings with him his own memories, which date back to his first incarnation circa 4000 YD;
    - can read tee-tee tails, which only Illuminaries of Weir, some witches and very few other non-devils can;
    - even as a woman, he suffers from a procreative imperative (the compulsive need to reproduce such that he can succeed himself or herself, quite literally, lifetime after lifetime); as such, he may be the natural father of Morgan Abyss, the Death’s Head Hellion;
    - most crucially, Rumour’s quill, what Tethys sometimes calls his power pen as opposed to power focus, follows him from lifetime to lifetime;
    - among many other purposes he uses it to draw himself and others between-space (the Weird, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), provided they’ve previously given him permission to do so;
    - he can draw on anything, even the air itself, but generally draws on a pad of paper or parchment that he splotches out of the nib of his quill; he naturally calls it his splotch pad;
    - Rumour’s quill being Brainrock, its ink is too; as such it never runs out;
    - anyone can use his quill while he’s dancing the legless limbo between lives but it always comes back to him whenever and wherever he reincarnates; as described in both Feel Theo and "The Death’s Head Hellion", this can cause whoever is using it when he recurs considerable inconvenience, to put it mildly;
    - see also here.
    ========

    Morgan Abyss, Melusine Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon in 4824/5, called the Death’s Head Hellion;
    - except in flashbacks, (probably) does not appear in the mini-novel but is often mentioned due not just to what became of the Upper Head in 4825 YD
    - fuller entry, with picture, here
    ========

    Pusan Wanderlust, a self-psychopomp or Wayfarer in the Wild Weird (between-space, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality);
    - in this respect she’s like garudas, mutated ravendeer, pterippi flying horses such as Attis’s Pegasus, Kore’s hellhounds, All of Incain and virtually any devil who has a power focus;
    - also known as Trailblazer because she can supposedly track anyone between-space (aka the Weird or the Grey); most often called Goat, which she considers complimentary;
    - a resolutely female faun or fauna (a female satyr) who’s been around perhaps 1,500 to 2,000 years longer than Quill Tethys (the Legendarian); fauns famously have a voracious appetite for sex;
    - unlike Quill, Pusan can only recur in her daughters or granddaughters (when they’re on the verge of dying);
    - deviant father was Taurus Chrysaor Attis whereas her devic half-mother was most likely Amal-Althea, Lazareme’s female healer;
    - a pedum or shepherd's crook that once belonged to Goatfish, one of Byron’s female Zodiacals (Capricorn), who vanished during the heyday of the Outer Earth’s Goddess Culture circa 2000 to 2500 YD, automatically returns to her whenever she comes back to life;
    - non-devic acquaintance, friend or occasional companion of both Harmony and the Grey Lady (Krepusyl Evenstar);
    - can often be found working at the Dinq, Doinq, Danq Cavern Tavern in the foothills at the far, north-western corner of the Diluvia Mountain Range, where it hasn't stopped raining since the Genesea or Great Flood of Genesis;
    - see also here
    =========

    Quidnunc Tethys, black-skinned son of Quill Tethys (the Legendarian), who wasn’t black-skinned;
    -  devic half-mother, Dame Chance, often visited while he was growing up;
    - at the insistence of his mother, who was black-skinned, grew up as an abstemious teetotaller;
    - also at her insistence, he became a cadet then a member of the Marutian military;
    - such a fabulous swordsman many believed either the Unity of Order or the Unity of Chaos possessed him when he won innumerable fencing contests during his late teens and early twenties.
    ========

    Jordan ‘Squiggly’ Tethys, son of Quidnunc; as such had black skin;
    - a fine artist and trained cartographer brought up alongside the Terrible Twins, Sraddha and Janna Somata, both of whom love him;
    - Zalman and Melina, the twins’ parents, agreed that Janna could marry Squiggly when she came of age.
    ========


    Quibble Tethys, originally a white-skinned grandson of Quill Tethys (the Legendarian)
    ========

    Quoits Tethys, originally a (very white-skinned) hybrid-Utopian daughter or granddaughter of Quill Tethys (the Legendarian);
    - a millennial child, meaning she was born in the Year of the Dome 5000;
    - chances are Dame Chance (the Master Deva bygone Illuminaries named Wintry Moira) is her devic half-mother, which at least partially accounts for her extremely long life even for a Utopian;
    - has faithfully served an unspecified number of Masters of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon over the centuries;
    -  given Jordan for a first name, her initial Q-name was Queer; gave herself the Q-name of Quoits when she rediscovered ringots in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon;
    - for remarkably many centuries acted as the High Illuminary of Weir; as such supervised the Weirdom's techno and biomages; for a brief period became the so-called Millennial Master of Weir; on the 4th of Kamor (July) 4492 YD, not long after assuming the Throne of Weir, resigned in favour of Zalman Somata, recently arrived from the Weirdom of Kanin City;
    - Melina nee Tethys Somata, the High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City throughout most of “Contagion Collectors”, calls her Granny Jordy even though many generations separate them
    ========

    Zalman Somata, black-skinned, very popular Master of the Weirdom of Kanin City throughout most of “Contagion Collectors”;
    - an acknowledged deviant whose devic half-father was Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur, the Unity of Order;
    - (possibly) possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme when he impregnated wife Melina (possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium) with result being the Terrible Twins, Sraddha and Janna Somata
    ========

    Vienna Vetala, shot by Jim McPherson, 2010; probably by SchieleSraddha Somata, deviant son of Zalman (possibly possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme) and Melina nee Tethys Somata (possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium), respectively the Master and High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City, when conceived;
    - half of the Terrible Twins, on their 18th birthdays their parents and the Unities of Lazareme agreed that he would be occupied by Fangfingers (Faustus Vladuca) when he married and conceived children;
    - had black skin like his father; best friend of Squiggly Tethys, son of Quidnunc, who also had black skin
    ========

    Janna Somata, deviant daughter of Zalman (possibly possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme) and Melina nee Tethys Somata (possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium), respectively the Master and High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City, when conceived;
    - half of the Terrible Twins, on their 18th birthdays their parents and the Unities of Lazareme agreed that she would be occupied by the Skinless Rasp (Rastha Aragon) when she married and conceived children;
    - had white skin like her mother and silver hair like her ancestor, the Valkyrie Ute Tethys (who featured in Feel Theo); beloved of Squiggly Tethys, son of Quidnunc.
    ========

  • Either deviants, demons, faeries or, more likely, a mixture of all three

    Herta Heartthrob, constructed by Magnus Minus (q.v.) during the latter days of Morgan Abyss’s mass-murderous reign as Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon;
    - first name a jumble of letters making up the word ‘earth’, indicating she’s earthborn; antique goddesses Hera and Rhea have same letters, albeit minus a ‘t’, and the Norse, Teutonic or Germanic Erda isn’t faraway;
    - initially based on Harmony, the ever-exquisite Unity of Balance; the self-proclaimed mighty Minotaurus of Minius (after himself) made Herta as a drunken favour for Unholy Abaddon (the Unity of Chaos);
    - remains rediscovered and reactivated by Tomcat Tattletail and Quoits Tethys at an unspecified date during the Dome’s 13th or 14th Centuries;
    - no longer just based on Harmony, Herta is ameliorated by residue Harmony leaves behind when she steps on Brainrock hearthstones as she goes through the Cathonic Zone from Tholos to Tholos in pursuit of trillion-timing Tommy (see Tattletail);
    - seems to be slowly acquiring snippets of Harmony’s memories as a result;
    - reputedly, along with Tomcat Tattletail (q.v.), has given birth to a number of putto-type cupids, apparently a form of daemon, or demon, who seem able to detect highly communicable disease in Outer Earthlings;
    - as such, a major contagion collector working for Quoits Tethys;
    - see also here.
    ========

    Tomcat Tattletail, a faerie trickster evidently reconstructed by Utopian Biomages on the instructions of Quoits Tethys and an unnamed Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon at an unspecified time presumably circa the mid 13th Century of the Dome;
    - a metamorph or shape-shifter; when on the Inner Earth, often affects the guise of Thrygragos Lazareme as Harmony most commonly sees him – as a blue-skinned, golden-haired pretty boy, albeit with only two sea-green eyes;
    - one theory is his first incarnation was what had become of Rumour of Lazareme after faeries ate him circa 4000 YD;
    - another theory is that, after his reconstruction, Quoits reanimated him with the spirit of an unnamed and probably eminently forgettable devil she found trapped in a ringot left over from the days of the Death’s Head Hellion (Master Morgan Abyss) who loved an earlier version of Tomcat, one with a Q-Name;
    - Harmony calls him trillion-timing Tommy, on account of he’s loved her and left her many times over the centuries; Lazareme calls him cat-crap;
    - a master musician whose favourite instrument is, highly suggestively, a syrinx or panpipe;
    - see also here.
    ========

  • Definite Demons

— Primeval Lilith, Demon Queen of the Night; the thought-immortal queen of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons;
- fused with Pyrame Silverstar, then unnamed, sometime after All of Incain ate the latter circa 725 PD;
- see also here.
========

Daemonicus, Dusted Daemonicus; reputedly indestructible, pre-Sedon king of chthonic or earthborn daemons or demons;
- see also here.
========

  • Mandroids

All the (self-proclaimed) Invincible She-Sphinx of Incain; once Ginny the Gynosphinx; Mandroid Mother Machine as well as occasional monster maker;
- more often than not huge and winged; a therefore perhaps surprisingly mobile psychopomp – meaning she can travel at will through the Weird (between-space, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), though always leaves a root of herself behind on the Prison Beach of Incain;
- used by devils, especially Unmoving Byron and the Unities of Lazareme, as both a temporary holding cell or as a long-term prison for their transgressing fellows;
- in addition to highborn devils, though not to the Moloch Sedon, whom she’s designed to eat, All tends to be responsive to Pyrame Silverstar;
- although possessed of a modicum of sentience, if not much in the way of actual intelligence, still a machine; can be turned off and on as well as reprogrammed;
- see also here.
========

Magnus Minus, origin unspecified, might be a demon but, just as likely, might be a mandroid; may have been a monster made by All of Incain, the Dual Entities or even Pyrame, through All, since she seems to know a lot about him – including how to revive him after howsoever many centuries of moribundity;
- self-proclaimed as well as self-named mighty Minotaurus of Minius (Absudyl, the Subterranean Realm of the Mandroids);
- regardless of whether he’s more mandroid than demon, he’s a daemonic demiurge, one who fancies himself a latter day Daemonicus in that he’s a demon king lacking subjects but completely capable of fashioning them;
- as such, he fashioned the future Herta Heartthrob during the reign of the Death’s Head Hellion upstairs in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head);
- see also here.

========

3. Mortal Descendants of Original Extraterrestrials

  • Utopians of Weir on Earth

    - Utopians living in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon at the time of the Death’s Head Hellion are brought up to hate the Moloch Sedon and his devic progeny;
    - oddly, as if to prove their non-Earth heritage, pureblood Utopian men are always black whereas Utopian women are invariably white;
    - the be-all and end-all of Utopians stuck on the Whole Earth (either beneath the Cathonic Dome or due only in part to an absence of functional spacecraft beyond it) remains the destruction of their ancient enemies;
    - see also here.
    =========

    - Illuminaries of Weir, Utopian polymaths, supposedly learned in a wide variety of not-necessarily-related matters; the highest educated class in Cabalarkon;
    - often act as advisors to the reigning Master, who’s usually elevated from their rank; very seldom are they not pure U-bloods;
    - see also here.
    ========

    - Scientocrats of Weir, still nominally scientists but, by the time period of “The Death’s Head Hellion”, long more like functionaries charged with keeping Weir’s archaic, First and Second Weirworld machinery operating as well as it can;
    - even though they’re highly educated, most scientocrats are specialists in their chosen fields; they can’t match Illuminaries when it comes to sheer breadth of knowledge;
    - see also here.
    ========

    - Biomages of Weir, scientocrats specializing in the design and manufacture of life forms;
    - as such, they might be considered biogeneticists, the same as Cabalarkon, the Undying Utopian (Sedon’s Daddy Cabby), was when he was altogether alive and living on, or travelling off of, the first Weirworld;
    - considered mages, which implies facility with magic, because they concentrate on making life forms out of subtle matter Solidium or Stopstone, the stuff of Mandroids and suchlike earthborn or chthonic creatures as demons and faeries;
    - indeed, it’s said of them that they make demons and faeries to order;
    - at the time of “Contagion Collectors”, they work or have worked for the Master of Cabalarkon’s Weirdom under the supervision of Quoits Tethys, a very long-lived millennial child;
    - much of what they do suggests they have access to the discredited, as well as nowadays generally despised, science of Old Eden, the Ice Age civilization that preceded the so-called Golden Age of Humankind.
    - Imbeciles of Weir, also the idiots of Weir; inbred and therefore very much low functioning Utopians; almost always purebloods, hence the inbreeding;
    - see also here.
    ========


    - Trinondevs of Weir, Weir’s Warrior Elite, almost always purebloods who manage to overcome their inbreeding in order to function as soldiers;
    - their main weapons operate by willpower;
    - eyeorbs placed atop eye-staves double as prison pods in that they can suck devic and azura spirit being out of the shells they’re occupying and into them, thus incarcerating them;
    - once an eyeorb is full it ceases to function as anything except a prison pod; if it’s not replaced, the eye-stave becomes useless;
    - eye-staves, like all their other anti-devil weaponry, haven’t functioned in the Weirdom of Kanin City for over a thousand years by the time of “Contagion Collectors”;
    - see also here.
    ========

    Cabalarkon, Cabby the Daddy, the Undying Utopian; a biogeneticist when he lived and worked on, or travelled off of, the First Weirworld;
    - when he was a wholly alive Utopian Scientocrat the Dual Entities used his right eye to jumpstart the process that resulted in the Moloch Sedon, hence Cabby the Daddy;
    - currently subsists in a tub of life-preserving but animation-suspending Cathonic Fluid beneath the Citadel of the Thinkers in Cabalarkon City;
    - it, like the rest of the territory composing the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head), is named after him;
    - see also here.
    ========

    Melina nee Tethys Somata, the High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City throughout most of “Contagion Collectors”;
    - her parents were distantly related to the same Jordan Q Tethys who fathered or mothered the eventual Quoits Tethys (or one of Quoits’ parents); both claimed they could trace their ancestry back to George Masterson and Ute Tethys, both of whom featured in Feel Theo;
    - at least one of their parents or grandparents was the Tethys who fled the Weirdom of Cabalarkon some centuries earlier and eventually settled in the rededicated Weirdom of Kanin City;
    - probably not a deviant, Melina’s skin is so white that many consider her a throwback to pure U-bloods such as the Sarpedon underclass and the Imbeciles of Weir;
    - be that as it may, she’s still a hybrid Utopian, one possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium, when she and Zalman conceived the Terrible Twins, Janna and Sraddha Somata.

========

4. Norman & Norma Notables

  • Inner Earthlings

— John Barleycorn, a bartender at the DDD (the Dinq, Doinq, Danq Cavern Tavern) in the foothills at the far, north-western corner of the Diluvia Mountain Range, where it hasn't stopped raining since the Genesea or Great Flood of Genesis;
- there's lynx aplenty re the inspiration for this character here.

  • Outer Earthlings

Dire, a self-named, sickly, hence valuable, child brought through the Dome by Herta Heartthrob and her latest putto (the cherubic demon that swallowed a devil, thus rendering him, as the putto puts it, an ‘internal infernal’);
- see also here.
Drang the Dog, Dire’s dog, a hound that Herta and her putto brings beneath the Dome to keep the child company;
- see also here.
Twisted Tommy, a Black Friar Dominican (sometimes thought of as ‘Domini canes’ or ‘Hound of the Lord’, albeit in Latin, for the order’s lead role in spearheading the terrifying Spanish Inquisition of the day), brought through the Dome by Tomcat Tattletail in his role as a contagion collector;
- see also here.
Bosco, at the time a still-struggling painter ostensibly of religious warnings in the Burgundian-cum-Hapsburg Netherlands, brought through the Cathonic Zone (Dome) by Herta Heartthrob from his hometown of 's-Hertogenbosch, which he refers to as Den Bosch;
- see also here.

Sedon Purge 5476 to 5495 – “Janna Fangfingers”

(Extracted from a capsulated character companion for ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ Trilogy)

Contagion Collectors aimed to destroy the Inner Earth’s Shining Ones, their devil-gods, by killing off those who would worship them – virtually everyone alive beneath the Cathonic Dome that encloses the Hidden Continent of Sedon’s Head.

Deviant and Devils collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011Full cover for Janna Fanfingers, text and collage by Jim McPherson, 2011Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities (Harmony, Chaos and Order) thought them sorted after they stormed the Hoodoo Hamlet in 5476 as the four fearsome Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

And so they had … except, it wasn’t just the bringers who needed sorting. It was the poxes and plagues they brought.

The Hidden Headworld needed purging. There could be no doubt of that. Yet the Moloch Sedon had disappeared from the night’s sky years earlier and evinced no signs of returning. Everyone knew what needed to be done yet no one, especially not Thrygragos Everyman, the Lord Laziest of Great Gods, was willing to command the purge begun.

Then someone, ostensibly in the name of love, played a Trigregos Gambit. The Head lost its Balance, capitalized and female. Her immediate brothers regarded each other balefully. No longer restrained, a continental catastrophe of unprecedented proportions ensued.

With calamitous rapidity, nearly 500 years of Panharmonium gave way to seemingly endless despair. The Inner Earth’s populace lost faith in its devil-gods as by far the mightiest of them went at each other unrelentingly, unmindful of those they trampled beneath their gargantuan feet.

The Dead didn’t stay dead, though. They rose, disbelievers no longer. They battled on, their newly puissant goddess to exalt the higher. Came All-Death Day there were more Dead Things marching than Living Beings breathing, let alone fighting back.

Fecundity no longer, the Vampire Queen of the Dead looked to rule the world – both sides of it!

1. Shining Ones: First, Second and Third Generation Devils

  • The Moloch Sedon

- the seemingly immortal, but nowhere-near-almighty, All-Father of Devazurkind; the Devil Himself, capitalized;
- although his star is absent from the night’s sky throughout the 55th century sequences, Cathonia (the Cathonic Zone or Dome, also the Sedon Sphere) shows no indication of imminent collapse.

========

  • The Six Great Gods and Goddesses

- the Thrygragos Brothers and Trigregos Sisters comprise the entirety of the second generation of devakind;
- the Three Great Gods are Thrygragos Lazareme (aka sometimes the Lackland Libertine, but most commonly Thrygragos Everyman), Thrygragos Byron (aka both Bodiless Byron and the Unmoving One due to that fact that he’s all head, with his facial features frozen in the same expression, not because he can’t transport himself wherever he wants on the Inner Earth), and Thrygragos Varuna Mithras;
- though perhaps not explicitly, both Byron and Mithras appear in the 60th century aspect of the mini-novel: the former in possession of Alpha Centauri; the latter as a (perhaps too) lifelike bust being sculpted by yellow-skinned Sedunihas on Frozen Lathakra, where dwell his parents, the Thanatoid Death Gods (Heat and Cold);
- during his tale-telling in the 60th century, the Legendarian speculates on the existence of an eminently forgettable, but possibly not apocryphal, individual known as the VAM Entity – Thrygragos Varuna Ahriman Mithras;
- Smiler, the ostensible ‘A’ in the VAM Entity, plays a mean panpipe; someone hearing it may suggest to the reader that he’s around, possibly between-space; though when he’s acting as narrator the Legendarian won’t be able to confirm that since he can’t remember he even exists.
- the often three-in-one Great Goddesses are Trigregos Devaura (the Spirit or Soul), Trigregos Demeter (the Body), and Trigregos Sapiendev (the Mind or Consciousness); they do not appear in the mini-novel;
- their terrible talismans do, however; hence why “Janna Fangfingers” is an integral part of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy.

========

  • Master Devas

- dictionaries often define ‘devas’ or ‘daevas’ as ‘the shining ones’; hence also the English word ‘devils’, meaning ‘little gods’;
- Master Devas compose the third generation of devazurkind; the Trigregos Sisters always bore them simultaneously, in threesomes;
- they believe their fathers are one or another of the Thrygragos Brothers; hence why it’s accepted that there are only three devic tribes: the Lazaremists, the Byronics and the Mithradites;
- when Master Devas, whose bodies are debrained daemons, interact sexually, without possessing anyone, all they can produce are azuras;
- a fourth generation of devakind (as opposed to devazurkind) began coming into existence during the second, third and fifth decade of the Dome’s 60th Century; as of late Maruta 5980 YD, every known member of the 4th generation has been born as a twin instead of a triplet;
- when Sedon, Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and, once in a while, unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants;
- it seems likely that many of the Outer Earth’s so-called supranormals or supras also had devic half-parents; this is especially true of supras born as a result of the Simultaneous Summonings of 59/1920.

========

  • The Firstborn Unities of Lazareme Devils in Disguise collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Harmony, called Datong Harmonia by bygone Illuminaries of Weir on Earth; the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium (her pet project, a planetary panacea for beneficial devils and their worshipful multitudes alike);
- reputedly, by a matter of a few seconds, the first Master Deva ever born; beauty incarnate as well as loveliness personified;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a golden torc, the so-called Necklace of, as you might expect, Harmony; from it she conjures her golden, chainmail gowns and the broken chains often manifested manacled to her wrists; from them she sometimes shoots, what else?, chain lightning.
Chaos, called Unholy Abaddon by bygone Illuminaries of Weir (after the Biblical Angel of Apollyon, the Bottomless Pit); the Unity of just that, Chaos;
- his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Chaos Blade, which he keeps forever-sheathed out of fear of causing a chain reaction that would bring irreversible carnage to the world, if not the cosmos.
Order, called Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur, or variations thereof, by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; the Unity of just that, Order;
- from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman he shoots vajra bolts – white lightning of the non-alcoholic variety;
- goes by Sparky when he’s in altogether human form;
- Chaos and Order hate each other passionately; they’d seek to annihilate each other, and all that stands between them, if Harmony didn’t always do just that, stand between them mollifyingly.

========

  • Significant Additional Lazaremists

Fangfingers, called First Fangs in 60th century sequences;
- a comparatively lowborn Lazaremist called by bygone Illuminaries Faustus Vladuca after a combination of Dacian, Carpathian, Gothic and/or Slavonic deities, folk legends or heroes;
- devils tend to refer to him as the Fop because he fancies himself something of a fashion plate, one with a penchant for wearing a black opera cape with red lining;
- has, for a power focus, a Brainrock glove with fangs rather than claws on its fingertips;
- a Black Godling with an unsavoury and perhaps undeserved reputation for sadism in that he welcomes animal sacrifice.
========

Metisophia, aka Titanic Metis and Wisdom of Lazareme;
- second-born brood sister of the Grey Lady (Krepusyl Evenstar) and the devic Anthea, who vanished not long after becoming a solid entity circa 2000 YD;
- devic half-mother of the first Legendarian by younger brother Rumour;
- power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a cauldron that bubbles up all-seeing fumes; mainly during her Outer Earth years as a major participant in its Goddess Culture (the so-called Mad Goddesses’ Middle Sea Matriarchy, which lasted from roughly 2000 to 1500 BCE), she wore it à la the Olympian Athena as a breast plate;
- Methandra Thanatos confiscated her cauldron during the expansion of the Empire of Lathakra; as a result of this, Metis lost her demonic body and promptly vanished from sight.
========


Irisiel Mercherm, Lazareme’s preferred Heliodromus or sun-runner; called Speedy by devils for reasons irrefutable.

========

  • Significant Mithradites

Belialma, Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck (Hell on Earth, Pandemonium, Sedon’s Temple on a map of the Hidden Headworld); Hell’s Belle, also sometimes called the luscious or lascivious Lady Lust as well as Bouncing, Beguiling or Bedazzling Belialma and variations thereof;
- a second-born Mithradite whose power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the Ruby Red Apple of Concupiscence; like her fellow Apple Goddesses, Concord and Discord (who are mentioned in the mini-novel but don’t appear), she carries it as the pupil of her third eye;
- always an object of desire, her reciprocal interests cross tribal boundaries to include not just Unholy Abaddon, the Unity of Chaos, and his brood brother, Lord Order, but their father, Thrygragos Lazareme;
- Bouncing Belle resides in her bastion of bliss overlooking Pandemonium, the capital of Satanwyck (Hell on Earth), where she entertains her paramours, who also number Zuvem ‘Gravedigger’ Nergalis and, centuries earlier, King Cold (Tantal Thanatos) and the Bull of Mithras (Cruel Plathon);
- her affinity, arguably even affection, for Janna Somata from a very early age triggers much of the tragedy that unfolds on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head in the latter half of its 55th Century.
========

Gravedigger, a fourth-born called Zuvem Nergalis by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; generally manifests himself black-skinned, like a male Utopian of Weir;
- name in part derives from his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, which is a Brainrock spade with a razor-sharp edge, and in part because he’s sometimes called the Nergalids’ Planter even though he actually alternates planting duties (of Vetala-Fecundity) with King Harvest;
- among his other love interests include bedazzling Belialma (Hell’s Belle, still Sinistral Lust of Satanwyck in 5476);
- figures he should ‘occupy’ Sraddha Somata when the latter gets married and whenever he fathers children; that way his deviant offspring would be as impressive as Zuvem is and always has been, at least in his mind;
- Lord Order was attempting to cathonitize, ill-star or catasterize Gravedigger (whom he (wrongly) reckoned was occupying the Legendarian of 5476) when he accidentally cathonitized Dame Chance (who was occupying Janna Somata) and consequently drove Star Sedon out of the night’s sky;
- becomes forever-after known as Devil Doom for the accuracy of his prophecies regarding Janna still Somata in 5481.
========

King Harvest, Underlord Yama Nergal, a fifth-born, so-called Earthling;
- when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (better known as Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), he helped cathonitize Vanthysces Vastness (Scarecrow), the Byronics’ Grim Reaper;
- he thereafter fused the latter’s power focus, a scythe, with his own, a miner’s pickaxe; hence King Harvest, the Mithradites’ Reaper or Harvester;
- for millennia alternated, on a lunar basis, fecundating duties of much younger sister Nergal Vetala with brood-older brother Gravedigger;
- unchallenged devic ruler of the radioactive Ghostlands since circa 4825 YD; as such, Death’s Angels, whose touch can kill but, being animated by Nergalazurs, bodily dissolve in rain or running water, are his to command;
- more so than the Thanatoids of Lathakra or the Apocalyptics’ Mother Murder (the Medusa, Mater Matare), he’s considered the devils’ primary Death God.
========

Vetala, Nergal Vetala, more commonly addressed as Fecundity by her fellow Master Devas until events described in Fangers;
- also called the Nergalids’ Grower; the Legendarian sometimes refers to her, when she was Fecundity, as Vulva-Vetala;
- though only a twelfth-born Mithradite, she’s a Moon Goddess like Lunar Uma, a Byronic firstborn; her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is considered a moon-sickle in that its blade is shaped like a crescent moon;
- until events described in Fangers, Vetala became pregnant by one or the other male Nergalid come the New Moon and gave birth every Full Moon;
- her azuras, who number in the thousands – more like tens of thousands – are called Vetalazurs or Nergalazurs (albeit only if their fathers were either Zuvem or Yama);
- Vetalazurs seem to be only good for animating Dead Things, thus in effect rendering them zombies; the bodies they animate dissolve in rain or running water;
- when the Lathakran Empire conquered the Penile Peninsula (thereafter once again better known as Iraxas, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld), thus displacing the Byronics who’d ruled it (as El Dorado, the Golden Land of mostly Outer Earth legend) for millennia previously, she stayed behind to oversee its affairs on their behalf;
- despite, as first described in Feel Theo, commonly having vaguely greenish skin, blood-red lips and too-sharp teeth, when not pregnant, considered something of a mouth-wateringly beautiful temptress;
- by tradition vetalas (lower case) manifest themselves with their hands on the wrong wrists; Vetala, though, seldom remembers to adopt this affectation;
- resides in the former Weirdom of Manoa, called the Gleaming City due to its golden walls, throughout most of 1000-Daze; as described in Hellion, her azuras were the main reason the Dead rose during the Infernal Equinox of 4824/5 in Grand Elysium;
- Byronic forces led by the firstborn Silverclouds, as well as the Great God’s second- and third-born Nucleoids, are invading her domain, what had been their golden land until the Dome’s 48th Century, at the start of Fangers.

========

  • The Thanatoids of Lathakra

Methandra Thanatos, a firstborn Mithradite also known, accurately, if perhaps somewhat disrespectfully, as Hot Stuff;
- a red-skinned, almost always masked and thoroughly covered (in fabrics invariably coloured different shades of red) giantess whose power focus is a firebrand or matchstick (cane);
- the mother, while being subsumed by a be-brained daemon or demon pre-Genesea (the Great Flood of Genesis) of Klannit, the world’s first azura;
- considered the devic patron of the Athenan War Witch sisterhood (to which Janna St Peche-Montressor, Fisherwoman and Superior Sarpedon, among many others, belong in the mid-to-late 60th Century of the Dome);
- a self-proclaimed death goddess, that of heat and fire, who nonetheless became the conceptive and birthmother of the first members of a fourth generation of devakind (not to be confused with devazurkind) sometime after waking up from a thousand year sleep in 5908 Year of the Dome.
========

Tantal Thanatos, firstborn Mithradite most commonly known as King Cold;
- a gigantic, blue-skinned, icicle-bearded, archetypal-Viking whose power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a labrys (a double-headed war axe);
- pre-Dome father, while being subsumed by a be-brained daemon or demon pre-Genesea (the Great Flood of Genesis) of Klannit, the world’s first azura;
- besides his thought-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, probably the most prolific male Master Deva in terms of having azura offspring;
- self-proclaimed death god, that of cold and ice, who nonetheless became the conceptive and birthfather of the first members of a fourth generation of devakind (not to be confused with devazurkind) sometime after waking up from a thousand year sleep in 5908 Year of the Dome.
========

Sedunihas, evidently the last non-cathonitized, or otherwise unaccounted for, devic offspring of Tantal and Methandra Thanatos;
- one definite brother (Demon Land) appeared in “The War of the Apocalyptics”, which came out in 2009; another brother and two sisters seem somehow connected to Airealist, Sea Goddess and Rainbow Rider, three members of the Damnation Brigade who also appeared in War-Pox; the Launching of the Cosmic Express is not scheduled to take place until November 30, 1980 (the 60th Century events described in Fangers occur just before it’s supposed to take off from the Outer Earth’s Centauri Island); 
-  a yellow-skinned artist who specializes in exceeding lifelike statuary;
- for reasons not as yet detailed, was not given birth until 5955; like all ten of his 4th generational brothers and sisters, born a twin, not a triplet; also unlike Master Devas, all twelve were born with possibly daemonic bodies; there is, however, thus far no indication he’s a metamorph like they were;
- as yet inexplicably, his twin brother, named Motan, was born (and remains) altogether dead; also for reasons not yet detailed, Sedunihas only ages one year in five; consequently appears to be only 5-years-old in 5980.

========

  • Moderately Significant Byronics

APM All-Eyes, lone daughter born in Bodiless Byron’s third brood; as such a member of his secondary Nucleus (along with her triplet brothers, Damon Goldenrod and Nevair Neverknight);
- a love goddess, Byron’s Venus, bygone Illuminaries of Weir named her Aphropsyche Morningstar, hence APM;
-   likes to appear as if composed entirely of eyes, hence All-Eyes;
-  her witch-followers, who aren’t just confined to the Byronics’ territory of Aka Godbad at the time of the mini-novel, are known as love-loving Afrites;
- Janna St Peche-Montressor (qv) is a love-loving Afrite as well as an Athenan War Witch; she is also APM’s most frequent host-shell in 5980.
— Rufous Rudra Silvercloud, Bodiless Byron’s firstborn son, his Beast Master, also his Storm Lord;
- as per Hellion, a onetime friend and ally of the Thanatoids of Lathakra who, along with sister-wife Umashakti, led Byronic forces during the First War between the Living and the Dead.
========

Umashakti Silvercloud, Unmoving Byron’s only remaining firstborn daughter; 
- a Moon Goddess, she waxes and wanes with its phases; consequently sometimes called Lunar Uma;
- her attribute is gravity; hence why devils usually address her as just that, Gravity;
- as per Hellion, a onetime friend and ally of the Thanatoids of Lathakra who, along with brother-husband Rudra, led Byronic forces during the First War between the Living and the Dead;
- the Silverclouds’ brood sister, whom much later Illuminaries of Weir eventually named Serathrone Hallow, never made it out of the Celestial Sphere (which devils aboard the Sedonshem barely escaped, howsoever long ago pre-Earth — hence perhaps the myth, legend or belief in Fallen Angels).

========

  • More Lazaremists

Rumour of Lazareme: devic half-father of the first Legendarian;
- probably does not appear in 1000-Daze, but is mentioned in it fairly frequently because his power focus or Tvasitar talisman, a multipurpose Brainrock quill, transfers to the Legendarian, a recurring deviant who, whenever he returns to life, does so in his dying son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter.
========

Librarian, Biblio Drek, sometimes called Specks due to the fact that his power focus or Tvasitar talisman is a pair of three-lens eyeglasses.
========

Chance, called Wintry Moira by bygone Illuminaries of Weir; a fifth-born also known variously as Lazareme’s Luck, Fata Fortuna and, most commonly among devils, Dame Chance;
- because of her dangerously unpredictable attribute, coupled with her nevertheless undeniable attractiveness, some refer to her as the luscious Lady Luck;
-   her azuras are called Fatazurs;
- her power focus or Tvasitar talisman is the 3-spoke wheel of fortune traditionally known as the Triskelion;
- as per Contagion, became a star in the night’s sky above the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head on 5474’s summer solstice when Lord Order accidentally cathonitized her while attempting do away with Gravedigger, whom he thought (mistakenly) was occupying the Quidnunc Legendarian of the day.
========

Skinless, the Skinless Rasp, or variations thereof; a comparatively lowborn Lazaremist called by bygone Illuminaries Rastha Aragon;
- a White Godling flagellant with a flail for a power focus;
- confined within All the Invincible on the Prison Beach of Incain at the start of Fangers and as such is only mentioned a few times in the mini-novel.
========

— Krepusyl Evenstar, Tvasitar Smithmonger, Amal-Althea, Azkeecyoos the Healer, Ursine Bardol, Black Zenit Suryad, Rapith Nauroz, Icy Miros, Mercurial Kometes, and Battle Babe (the Morrigu Badhbh) are among the other Lazaremists who are either mentioned or appear, howsoever briefly, in the mini-novel.

========

  • More Byronics

Chimaera Glimmenmare, along with triplet siblings, Sedona Spellbinder and Devil Wind (the Whirling Deva, aka Vayu Maelstrom), are Byron’s Primary Nucleoids;
- all three once frequented Iraxas (the Penile Peninsula, Sedon’s Mutton Chop on a map of the Hidden Headworld);
- they are among the many Byronics seeking to drive Nergal Vetala out of what they called the Golden Land (El Dorado), which she has been ruling since the 48th Century of the Dome, at the beginning of Fangers;
- all three featured in War-Pox.
========

— Draconic Yati, Byron’s Dragon (beware his burps);
- a highborn Byronic somehow in tune with scientific developments on the Outer Earth during both eras described in Fangers.
========

Djerrid Ruin, Pyçonja Volant, Camorva Freeflight, Vanthysces Vastness (called Scarecrow by devils), Damon Goldenrod, Nevair Neverknight, Qosgod and Petrogod are among the other named Byronics who appear, howsoever briefly, in the mini-novel.

========

  • More Mithradites

Phantast Thanatos, the third of the firstborn Thanatoid Death Gods; called Dream or Dreamweaver by devils;
- cathonitized circa 4000 YD for masterminding the Crimson Conspiracy on the Outer Earth along with Strife (Mithras’s Ewe for Aries, aka Kore-Eris, Discord, Kanin Marut, Fitna Marutia, among many other names);
- does not appear in "Janna Fangfingers" but is mentioned occasionally.
========

— Sinistral Envy, a lower-born called Bobby Badboy or, less frequently, Robin Goodfellow by bygone Illuminaries of Weir;
- generally manifests himself as a cupid or putto, which is why devils, somewhat incorrectly, tend to refer to him as Cupidity; the Legendarian also refers to him as Sinistral Spiteful;
- seemingly for perpetuity has been waiting in the daemonic wings to replace his much higher born sister, Prime Sinistral Lust, whom he senses, quite rightly, has been bored of acting as Demon King Sedon’s surrogate when it comes to ruling Satanwyck (Sedon’s Temple, Hell on Earth) for a very long time;
- figures he’s in line to succeed her when Bouncing Belle moves to take over the Mastery of Marutia via Janna Somata, which may still be a possibility at the start of Fangers;
- like virtually everyone else, possibly including Sedon himself, Envy has no recollection that someone else has a far greater claim to the throne of Hell until he manifests himself visually in front of him and starts being quoted in bold-italics.
========

Domdaniel-Pride and most of the other former or eventual Prime Sinistrals of Satanwyck are mentioned by name;
- in 5980, for example, Demon King Sedon’s surrogate is Prime Sinistral Sloth (Baaloch Hellblob), a vaguely egg-shaped, surprisingly gourmet-calibre cook perhaps even better known as Lord Lazy.
========

Pyrame Silverstar, the Pauper Priestess, the fabulously female (adult) Perpetual Presence; sometimes called Providence, among many another name or title;
- unless programmed otherwise, All of Incain obeys her; hence why she can often be found occupying the She-Sphinx on the Prison Beach of Incain, at the bottom of the Cattail Peninsula (Sedon’s Ponytail on a map of the Hidden Headworld), about as far south as one can go on the Head without having to swim or ride in a boat;
-  for reasons left unexplained in the mini-novel, she was cathonitized in 5950; that suggests she somehow lost her formerly (and perhaps still) be-brained, daemonic body, that of Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night, much like she did in 4824 YD when they were jointly occupying the Death’s Head Hellion;
-  devic half-mother of Saladin born Nauroz Devason, the Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon since 5950; (half-father: the Moloch Sedon — it may therefore be that Saladin is the last Sed-son or sedon, small case, left alive beneath the Cathonic Dome).
========

Tammuz and Osiraq, Mithras’s onetime torchbearers;
- not just devils nowadays think of them as either the Idiot or Atomic Twins; this after their perhaps inadvertent, but unquestionably cataclysmic, rendering of the Ghostlands lethally radioactive in 4825 YD;
-  among the many who help compose Demogorgon, the Conglomerate Deva, on Incain Day at the conclusion of the 1000 Days of Disbelief in 5495 YD.
========

— various Apocalyptics including the Primary Four (War, Death, Plague and Catastrophe), Drought (Cathune Bubastis) and Flood (Diluvia Ran) make howsoever fleeting appearances in Fangers.
========

— so does at least one of the two surviving Reptilians from Mithras’s Eighth: namely, the Emperor Chameleon, Deva-Dand of the Floodlands, Lord of Lizarados and the mutually despised brood brother of Saur Lord Klizarod Rex, Devil-Dand of the neighbouring Lake Lands (together they make up Sedon’s Sweat Glands on a map of the Hidden Headworld).
========

— the entirety of Mithras’s Sixth are among the many mentioned in literal conjunction with Demogorgon, the Conglomerate Deva; Dandset Typhon and Geld Neargon have only then recently come to grief (as in become All of Incain’s guest) whereas their brood brother, Abdullah Ziderite (Magnetism), is but one of the many devils who’ve been stuck in the She-Sphinx for hundreds, even thousands of years, prior to Incain Day.

========

 

2. Deviants, Demons, Faeries and Mandroid Monstrosities

  • Deviants

When Great Gods and/or Master Devas possess sentient beings for procreative purposes, their resultant offspring are often long-lived and occasionally unnaturally gifted mortals known as deviants.

the Legendarian, aka always Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, the legendary 30-Year Man or Woman, as well as 30-Beers;
- 5980’s narrator and a central character in much of the 55th Century storyline;
- a multitalented musician, painter and recurring tail- as well as taleteller who, whenever he (as he prefers) returns to life, does so in his son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter;
- when he comes back he keeps the memories of whomever he was previously; additionally brings with him his own memories, which date back to his first incarnation circa 4000 YD;
- for reasons never explained (other than as an aspect of his deviancy), cannot come back into anyone who hasn’t already turned 20 before apparently dying the first time; equally oddly, can never stay in anyone longer than 30 years; hence the 30-Year Man or Woman;
- evidently, when he comes back he revitalizes the body that either died a first time or, more feasibly, was irreversibly dying a first time; if that body makes it to the full allotment of  30 years, Quill returns to Limbo but the original son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter lives on (albeit without any of the Legendarian’s memories of other lives, just memories of his or her lifetime both pre-Legendarian and as the Legendarian);
- such exceedingly rare individuals are referred to as Quit-Quills; Quidnunc’s white-skinned, red-headed father, Quibble Tethys, became Quit-Quill in Contagion;
- Rumour’s quill, what Tethys sometimes calls his power pen (as opposed to power focus), follows him from lifetime to lifetime;
- among many other purposes, he uses it to draw himself and others through between-space (the Weird, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), provided they’ve previously given him permission to do so;
- he can draw on anything, even the air itself, but generally draws on a pad of paper or parchment that he splotches out of the nib of his quill; he naturally calls it his splotch pad;
-  Rumour’s quill being Brainrock, its ink is too; as such, it never runs out;
-  anyone can use his quill while he’s dancing the legless limbo between lives but it always comes back to him whenever and wherever he reincarnates;
- count among the named characters who eventually became Legendarians in the 55th century: a young swordsman whose Q-name was Quidnunc; his birthfather, Quibble become Quit-Quill; Queer become Quoits (before she became Quill), an extremely long-lived hybrid Utopian who, albeit mostly behind-the-scenes, played a nevertheless highly significant role in both Contagion and Fangers; and Squiggly Tethys, Sraddha Somata’s best buddy and sister Janna’s beloved before things got seriously crazy for all three of them;
- count among the named characters who eventually became Legendarians in the 60th century: Sister Jordan, originally of Subterranean Temporis, and George Taurson, originally of Apple Isle;
- we also learn that Gordon ‘G for Glee’ Tethys, the Valkyrie novitiate Ute Tethys’s younger brother, became a Legendarian in the late 44th or early 45th Century of the Dome (both of whom appeared during 'Feel Theo').
========

Quoits Tethys, originally a (very white-skinned) hybrid-Utopian daughter or granddaughter of Quill Tethys (the Legendarian);
- a millennial child, meaning she was born in the Year of the Dome 5000;
- chances are Dame Chance (the Master Deva bygone Illuminaries named Wintry Moira) is her devic half-mother, which at least partially accounts for her extremely extended lifetime (even by the longevity-standards of a full-blooded Utopian, which she’s not since pure U-bloods can’t be possessed);
- before she became one herself, faithfully served an unspecified number of Masters of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon over the nearly five centuries of her life;
- given Jordan for a first name, her initial Q-name was Queer (possibly because, despite being a hybrid, she looked very much like a pure-blooded Utopian woman); gave herself the Q-name of Quoits when she rediscovered ringots in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon;
- Melina nee Tethys Somata, the Trigregos Titaness, called her Granny Jordy even though many generations separate them;
- briefly became Master of Cabalarkon in 5476; remained such after she died, or virtually died, presumably of old age, since the Legendarian came back inside her;
- died (or virtually died) a second time when, according to 5980’s Legendarian (George Taurson), he (as her) drank her into a tub of Cathonic Fluid (wherein he, as she, inexplicably drowned) on the cow-swill Cabalarkon’s version of First Weir’s Mother Machine manufactures and dares call beer;
- voluntarily gave up her Mastery by passing it on to Zalman Somata on the 4th of Kamor (July) 5476 (1476 AD).
========

Zalman Somata, black-skinned, once very popular Master of the Weirdom of Kanin City and, with it, the Mastery of Marutia (Sedon’s Cheek);
-  an acknowledged deviant whose devic half-father was Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur, the Unity of Order;
- (possibly) possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme when he impregnated wife Melina (definitely possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium) with result being the Terrible Twins, Sraddha and Janna Somata;
-  became the Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon in 5476 after its then-current Master (Quoits Tethys) resigned in his favour;
- Zal’s brothers, Johann & George, also figure in mini-novel.
========

Sraddha Somata, deviant son of Zalman (possibly possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme) and Melina nee Tethys Somata (definitely possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium), respectively the Master and High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City, when conceived;
- staff-half of the Terrible Twins; on their 18th birthdays (celebrated on the summer solstice of 5474, the night Star Sedon disappeared from Cathonia) their parents and the Unities of Lazareme agreed that he would be occupied by Fangfingers (Faustus Vladuca) when he married and conceived children;
- black-skinned like his father; best buddy of Squiggly Tethys, son of Quidnunc, who also had black skin;
- banished beyond the Dome by Thrygragos Lazareme for his damn near direful deeds in the so-called Garden of Earthy Delights (the Hoodoo Hamlet) in the Spring of 5476;
- after visiting Torquemada (whom he knew as Twisted Tommy in the Hoodoo Hamlet of 1476), in the Outer Earth court of Ferdinand and Isabel, became a veritable smiling fiend of a master swordsman;
- as such, fought in the second naval battle of Otranto in 1481, during which his cartographer, chronicler, lifelong friend and until-then-inseparable travelling companion, Squiggly Tethys, was killed only to arise anew – as the Legendarian;
- Squigs thereupon used his miraculously restored quill (once Rumour of Lazareme’s Tvasitar talisman) to whisk them both to the Egyptian Sphinx and thence back to the Inner Earth of Sedon’s Head;
- like sister Janna, appears to have the ability to possess and thereafter dominate devils rather than the other way around.
========

Janna Somata, deviant daughter of Zalman (possibly possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme) and Melina nee Tethys Somata (definitely possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium), respectively the Master and High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City, when conceived;
- distaff-half of the Terrible Twins; on their 18th birthdays (celebrated on the summer solstice of 5474, the night Star Sedon disappeared from Cathonia) their parents and the Unities of Lazareme agreed that she would be occupied by the Skinless Rasp (Rastha Aragon) when she married and conceived children;
- very white-skinned, like her mother Melina and many times removed great-grandmother Quoits Tethys, and silver-haired, like her lookalike ancestor, the Valkyrie novitiate Ute Tethys (whom the Moloch Sedon fancied in Feel Theo); beloved of Squiggly Tethys, son of Quidnunc;
- became the Master of the Weirdom of Kanin City in 5476 when Abe Chaos finally learned the truth of her Hellion of a mother’s Hate-Sedon double-dealing as early as 5454 and ever-onwards;
- acquires the Susasword (from Faustus Vladuca) upon the occasion of the birth of her presumably deviant son by Abe Chaos in 5481;
- like brother Sraddha, appears to have the ability to possess and thereafter dominate devils rather than the other way around.
========

Johann-George Somata-Faust, so named by his mother, Janna Somata, upon the occasion of his birth in 5481;
- as a newborn, sliced to the Outer Earth (via the Susasword) in order to prevent Mithradites capturing him;
- aspects of his subsequent life beyond the Dome may have inspired the calumny of Faust (in which case Smiler probably played the role of Mephistopheles).

========

  • Probable Deviants

— the Molech Xibalba, a Black King or Vampire Maker born as a result of the Simultaneous Summonings of 59/1920;
- a long-thought dead Irache shaman believed thoroughly sliced and diced (killed both decisively and irretrievably) by Second Fangs (Janna Fangfingers) sometime prior to 5980 YD;
- possibly has a twin brother or sister who became an Outer Earth supranormal during its Secret War or Wars thereof;
- more than likely doesn’t appear in Fangers; though a panpipe-playing someone who looks identical to him definitely does.
========

Night Owl, otherwise unnamed, presumed Inner Earth Irache who became a vampire during the Simultaneous Summonings of 59/1920;
- most likely Xibalba’s father;
- somehow associated with Metisophia (Titanic Metis, Wisdom of Lazareme, devic half-mother of the Legendarian);
- as such, becomes an owl rather than a bat when he transforms into anything non-human other than smoke.
========

Saladin born Nauroz called Devason;
- Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon as of 5950 YD, when he beat Demios Sarpedon and Fisherwoman (Scylla Nereid) in the Challenge of Weir;
- mother and father (as the devil-transformed faerie tricksters, Young Life & Young Death) appeared in Sister-Grandmother, a short story published in Forever & 40 Days – the Genesis of phantacea (Phantacea Publications, 1990);
- has an abiding hatred of witches;
- presumed devic half-mother: Pyrame Silverstar; presumed devic half-father: none other than the Moloch Sedon himself;
- may yet prove to be that Saladin is the last Sed-son or sedon, small case, left alive beneath the Cathonic Dome;
- mentioned often, but does not appear in mini-novel.
========

Morgianna born Nauroz become Somata then Sarpedon, an Inner Earth Summoning Child, Saladin Devason’s year-younger sister;
- probable devic half-mother: Pyrame Silverstar;
- mother and father (as the devil-transformed faerie tricksters, Young Life & Young Death) appeared in Sister-Grandmother, a short story published in “Forever & 40 Days – the Genesis of phantacea” (Phantacea Publications, 1990);
- husband of Demios; mother of Andaemyn by Demios; mother of Tsishah Twilight by the faerie-human hybrid, Tom-Tiddly Taddletale (think both Lazareme and the Male Entity);
- codenamed the White Witch on the Outer Earth; called Superior Sarpedon by Wilderwitch (who seemingly distrusts her intensely) during War-Pox;
- mentioned in mini-novel as a latter-day ally of Alpha Centauri, CE and Greater Godbad; sympathetic to their plans re the Inner Earth in general and the Weirdom of Cabalarkon, with its still somewhat-functioning, originally extraterrestrial  science and technology, in particular;
- the Hecate-Hellion’s Morrigan, an Anthean Nightingale and the Athenan War Witches’ Mother Superior;

========

  • Mandroids

All the (self-proclaimed) Invincible She-Sphinx of Incain; as per Feel Theo, once Ginny the Gynosphinx;
-   Mandroid Mother Machine as well as occasional monster maker;
-  more often than not huge and winged; a therefore perhaps surprisingly mobile psychopomp;
- as such, can travel at will through the Weird (between-space, the dark-grey universal substance of Samsara, mundane reality), though always leaves a root of herself behind on the Prison Beach of Incain;
- used by devils, especially Unmoving Byron and the Unities of Lazareme, as both a temporary holding cell or a long-term prison for their transgressing fellows;
- in addition to highborn devils, though not to the Moloch Sedon, whom she’s designed to eat, All tends to be responsive to Pyrame Silverstar (qv);
- All, whose human head resembles the Female Entity (think Harmony), tongue-tugs Pyrame and non-devils she favours (notably Chrysaor Attis, from Feel Theo, and the Legendarian) through the Dome to her otherwise moribund male equivalent out there, the Egyptian Sphinx, whose head resembles the Male Entity (think Lazareme);
- although possessed of a modicum of sentience, if not much in the way of actual intelligence, still a machine; as per Hellion, can be turned off and on as well as reprogrammed.
========

Demogorgon, the much-feared conglomerate devil, a version of whom may have appeared in Feel Theo speaking like this;
- comes out of All, Incain’s (self-proclaimed) Invincible Mandroid Monster Maker (qv);
-  is in fact composed of the multitude of Master Devas still imprisoned within All either Fangers-recently or over the course of her millennial existence.

========

 

3. Mortal Descendants of Original Extraterrestrials

  • Utopians of Weir on Earth

- Utopians living in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon are brought up to hate the Moloch Sedon and his devic progeny;
- oddly, as if to prove their non-Earth heritage, pureblood U-men are always black whereas pureblood U-women are invariably white;
- pure U-bloods can’t be possessed
- the be-all and end-all of most U-bloods, pure or hybrid, stuck on the Whole Earth (either beneath the Cathonic Dome or, due only in part to an absence of functional spacecraft, beyond it) remains the destruction of their ancient enemies.
========

- Illuminaries of Weir, Utopian polymaths, supposedly learned in a wide variety of not-necessarily-related matters;
- the highest educated class in Cabalarkon, Illuminaries could also be found in former or decrepit Weirdoms like Godbad City, Manoa and Kanin City;
- often act as advisors to the reigning Master, who’s usually elevated from their rank; very seldom are they not pure U-bloods;
- both Zalman and Melina Somata were at one-time High Illuminaries of the Weirdom of Kanin City;
- Quoits Tethys, who was a Millennium Child born in the Year of the Dome 5000, was the High Illuminary of Cabalarkon for a very long time;
- Melina nee Sarpedon Zeross, an Inner Earth Summoning Child codenamed Illuminatus in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, became the High Illuminary of Cabalarkon during the reign of by-then brother-in-law Saladin Devason (which began in 5950).
========

- Imbeciles of Weir, also the idiots of Weir; inbred and therefore very much low functioning Utopians; almost always purebloods, hence the inbreeding.
========

- Trinondevs of Weir, Weir’s Warrior Elite, almost always purebloods who manage to overcome their inbreeding in order to function as soldiers;
- their main weapons operate by willpower channelled though extraterrestrial  devices such as Mother Machines and eye-staves;
- eyeorbs placed atop eye-staves double as prison pods in that they can suck devic and azura spirit being out of the shells they’re occupying and into them, thus incarcerating them;
- once an eyeorb is full it ceases to function as anything except a prison pod; if it’s not replaced, the eye-stave becomes useless;
- eye-staves, like all their other anti-devil weaponry, never functioned in the Weirdom of Kanin City during the reigns of Zalman then Melina or Janna Somata;
- since Saladin Devason began his reign as Master in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon in 5950, its Trinondevs are exclusively male.
========

Cabalarkon, Cabby the Daddy, the Undying Utopian; a biogeneticist when he lived and worked on, or travelled off of, the First Weirworld;
- when he was a wholly alive Utopian Scientocrat the Dual Entities used his right eye to jumpstart the process that resulted in the Moloch Sedon, hence Cabby the Daddy;
- currently subsists in a tub of life-preserving but animation-suspending Cathonic Fluid beneath the Citadel of the Thinkers in Cabalarkon City;
- it, like the rest of the territory composing the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon’s Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head), is named after him.
========

Melina nee Tethys Somata, the High Illuminary of the Weirdom of Kanin City throughout most of "Contagion Collectors"; became a one-day wonder (a sort of Queen for a Day), when Abe Chaos deposed her for daughter Janna as Master of Kanin City, in 5476;
- thereafter relocated to a Hellion Witch Shelter in the Forever Forest of Wildwyck (in the Head’s Occipital regions, southeast of Ophir-Moorset and north of Samarand, once Sedon’s Tongue) until she reunited with Zalman sometime after he attained the Mastery of Cabalarkon, also in 5476;
-  as both a Hellion Morrigan and an Ant Nightingale she spent her years after turning 50 as a Mother Superior of the two oldest sisterhoods on the Whole Earth;
-  her parents were distantly related to the same Jordan Q Tethys who fathered or mothered the eventual Quoits Tethys (or one of Quoits’ parents); both claimed they could trace their ancestry back to George Masterson and Ute Tethys, who married sometime after the conclusion of Feel Theo;
- at least one of their parents or grandparents was the Tethys who fled the Weirdom of Cabalarkon some centuries earlier and eventually settled in the rededicated Weirdom of Kanin City;
- probably not a deviant, Melina’s skin is so white that many consider her a throwback to pure U-bloods such as the Sarpedon underclass and the Imbeciles of Weir;
- be that as it may, she’s still a hybrid Utopian, one possessed by Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium, when she and Zalman conceived the Terrible Twins, Janna and Sraddha Somata;
- late in her lifetime came to be called the Trigregos Titaness (Trigregos as in the long-lost three Great Goddesses and Titanism, capitalized, in the sense of a fancy word for rebelliousness).
========

Melina born Sarpedon become Zeross, twin sister of Demios; may have been named after the Trigregos Titaness of the Dome’s 55th Century;
- an Inner Earth Summoning Child who first came to the Outer Earth in 1938;
- there, during its Secret War (or Wars) in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, codenamed Illuminatus;
- became the High Illuminary of Cabalarkon during the reign of (deeply disapproving) brother-in-law Saladin (born Nauroz but called Devason), which began in 5950; Sal, who hates Demios, seems to have been enamoured of her but she rejected him for reasons as yet only implied;
- the mother by much younger Aristotle (Ringleader) Zeross of three daughters;
- does not appear in mini-novel but mentioned in it; suggestion is she’s sympathetic to Alpha Centauri, CE and Greater Godbad’s plans for the Inner Earth;
- directly descended from the Sarpedon underclass who, as revealed in Hellion, are inclined to worship Thrygragos Lazareme since they see him as the Male Entity.
========

Demios Sarpedon, twin brother of Melina become Zeross;
- an Inner Earth Summoning Child who first came to the Outer Earth in 1938;
- there, during its Secret War (or Wars) in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, codenamed Blackguard then the Ace of Spades;
- exiled, along with wife Morgianna, from the Weirdom of Cabalarkon once Saladin (born Nauroz but called Devason) won the Challenge of Weir in 5950 and became its Master;
- considered Saladin Devason’s chief rival for what passes as Cabalarkon’s throne and the Weirdom’s Mastery;
- does not appear in mini-novel but mentioned in it; suggestion is he’s sympathetic to Alpha Centauri, CE and Greater Godbad’s plans for the Inner Earth;
- wife Morgianna is Sal’s year-younger sister, another Inner Earth Summoning Child (the Hecate-Hellion’s Morrigan, an Anthean Nightingale and the Athenan War Witches’ Mother Superior);
- reputedly possesses the oldest eye-stave in the world (Morgan Abyss, the Death’s Head Hellion, had it in Hellion);
- directly descended from the Sarpedon underclass who, as revealed in Hellion, are inclined to worship Thrygragos Lazareme since they see him as the Male Entity.

========

 

4. Norman & Norma Notables

  • Inner Earthlings active during the 55th Century of the Dome

— Hierophant Koatyl (later Bat-Koatyl), in life, Vetala’s High Priest both before and after the Byronics drove her out of Iraxas (their El Dorado) and into exile in Marutia (though probably didn’t follow her to Satanwyck, where she accumulated what came to be called the Baby Bomb);
-  performed much the same function even after he was turned.

========

  • Outer Earthlings active during the 15th Century beyond the Dome

— Tomas de Torquemada, a Black Friar Dominican (sometimes thought of as ‘Domini canes’ or ‘Hound of the Lord’, albeit in Latin, for the order’s lead role in spearheading the terrifying Spanish Inquisition of the day);
-  eventual, under Ferdinand and Isabella, Grand Inquisitor of Spain;
-  both Sraddha ‘Shreds’ Somata and Squiggly ‘Squigs’ Tethys knew him as Twisted Tommy in the Garden of Earthy Delights;
-  it was through Torquemada (who was by then talking like this) that Shreds (who thereupon started talking like this) and Squigs joined Aragon’s armed forces (this after Thrygragos Lazareme banished them from the Head in 5476);
- like Queen Isabella of Castile & King Ferdinand of Aragon only mentioned in mini-novel.

========

  • Inner Earthlings featured in the 60th century story segments

Alpha Centauri, called the Fatman for reasons immediately obvious to  anyone who sees him;
- founder and head of Centauri Enterprises, the de facto government of  supposedly democratic Godbad;
- CE, as it’s often called, is why the subcontinent and territories neighbouring it in Goatwood, the Gulf of Aka and Sedon’s Underlip, as well as Krachla, the tip of the Penile Peninsula, and on the Akadan coast of the near-western Cattail Peninsula, is best known as the Corporate State of Greater Godbad;
- an Outer Earthling born Alfredo Sentalli, the Fatman is grotesquely obese; so much so he’s confined to an automated wheelchair for most of his waking hours;
-  evidently the only way he can survive being so massively overweight is because he’s often the very willing shell of none other than Thrygragos Byron himself — proof, as he, despite his Roman Catholic background and persistent faith, very much begrudgingly acknowledges, that devic possession can be beneficial.
========

Janna St Peche-Montressor, wife of Yataghan raised Montressor, daughter-in-law of Alpha Centauri, evidently the most common host of APM All-Eyes in 5980 YD;
- a Lovely Lady Afrite as well as an Athenan War Witch;
- effectively the Fatman’s nursemaid as well as his chief bodyguard in Aka Godbad City, where he lives in same Outer-Earth-modern building that houses the headquarters of Centauri Enterprises.
========

Gottfried Kenton, a ‘prip’ (Public Relations Professional), who desires to become president of the Godbadian republic;
- actually doesn’t appear in the mini-novel, though someone who purports to be him does – that someone, as one might expect, speaks in bold-italics.
========

Achigan Auranja, former King of Greater Godbad; deposed during the Godbadian Civil War of the Fifties by (at first) anti-devil, Republican forces supplied with Utopian weaponry by a then-nascent Centauri Enterprises;
- an orange-skinned and orange-textured Bandradin, Fisherwoman’s estranged husband (Fisherwoman, born Scylla Nereid, is a major – perhaps even the major – non-devic character in the upcoming "Goddess Gambit"; about her much can and will be written);
-  in 5980, lives in exile on Godbad’s far, north-westernmost shore: namely, the lip-tip-principality of Achigan (named after him);
- Byronics invited his royal forbearers to Godbad proper, from their ancestral homeland in the Cattail highlands, at an unspecified time in the past (probably sometime in the previous century);
- apparently has had considerable dealings with faerie tricksters from Twilight (Sedon’s Outer Nose on a map of the Hidden Headworld).
========

Ferdinand Niarchos, the Legendarian calls him ‘Weird Ferd’ or, perhaps even more rudely, plain ‘Weirdo’;
- the son of Gomez Niarchos, Godbad’s dead but Sangazur-animated ambassador to the Bloodlands (Sedon’s Inner Nose), he’s the Centauri-appointed governor of New Iraxas, Godbad’s petroleum-belching, north-easternmost province;
- New Iraxas is so polluted its workforce is largely composed of Haddazur-animated zombies supervised by Janna Fangfingers’ vampire elite;
-  since the vampires are mostly Marutian, like Janna Fangfingers, and the zombies are mostly Irache aboriginals (natives of Hadd, old Iraxas) racial tensions are high;
- Weird Ferd has many children; the Legendarian suspects a number of them are actually Gomez’s children;
- Ferd has come to Aka Godbad City to seek instructions from Alpha Centauri re contract talks with the zombie union and the continuing greening of New Iraxas;
- the Byronic Master Deva known as Petrogod may be possessing Ferd.
========

Gomez Niarchos, Godbad’s dead, but Sangazur-animated ambassador to the Bloodlands (Sedon’s Inner Nose);
- a friend of the Legendarian, albeit from an earlier incarnation, Gomez is charged with negotiating the neutrality of Bloodlanders,who are perhaps better known as Valhallans;
- Valhallans, the Glorious Dead of Feel Theo, once worshipped Mars Bellona, the long-cathonitized Apocalyptic of War;
- proper Valhallans are all dead; Guardian Angel Tyrtod, an ambulant leftover from the Outer Earth’s Secret War of Supranormals, currently leads them;
- Gomez is one key to Centauri’s plans to render Hadd once again a fertile land of the Altogether Alive, albeit subject to Centauri Enterprises, the government of Greater Godbad and its Byronic devil-gods.
========

— among the Hidden Headworld’s other notable, presumed mortals that are mentioned fairly often in the mini-novel include Holgat Sraddha and Barsine born Mandam Holgat-wife (both of whom were Summoning Children);
— their son, Thartarre Sraddha Holgatson, is the current High Priest of the Brown-Robed Sraddhites;
- supported by the Godbadian military, Sraddhites are once again attempting to wrest control of Hadd (formerly both Iraxas and El Dorado) from its Irache natives, alive or otherwise, as well as Janna Fangfingers and her Dead Things Walking (and Biting);
- the Ambulant Dead want to keep Iraxas-Hadd as it has been since the cessation of first War between the Living and the Dead in the Dome’s 56th Century.

========

  • Outer Earth Notables in the 20th Century beyond the Dome:

— Among non-Head, presumed mortals mentioned fairly often in the mini-novel include Angelo & Aristotle Harry Zeross (father and son Ringleaders), Alfredo Sentalli (Alpha Centauri’s real name), his son Yataghan (Sentalli) Montressor, Hiyati Samarand, George Hannibal and Romaine Kinesis.

========

 

5. Outer Earth Supranormals

Arguably the same as Inner Earth deviants in that one or both of their birthparents may have been possessed by a devic spirit being when they were conceived:

Emeralda Plantagenet, beloved wife of Alfredo Sentalli (Alpha Centauri), mother of his only son, Yataghan raised Montressor;
- can trace her ancestry back to Barbara and Wooden Tethys, the Deadly Dryads who appeared in Feel Theo;
- one of a number of Plantagenets to figure in the Outer Earth’s Secret War (or Wars) of Supranormals; as such, would have been familiar with Barsine born Mandam become Holgat-wife, Fisherwoman and various members of the eventual Damnation Brigade, War-Pox’s predominant protagonists;
- apparently died well prior to events described in the mini-novel

Tomcat Tattletail

A satyr reminiscent of Tomcat Tattletail, shot in Met Museum NYC by Jim McPherson, 2009

I shot this satyr in NYC's Met Museum in 2009. I have since discovered it was by Balthasar Permoser (13 August 1651 – 18 February 1732).

Apparently it was intended to depict Marsyas, who found a flute discarded by Olympian Athene and thought he could play it better than her half-brother Apollo.

The muses judged him wrong in the resultant content. A vindictive Apollo subsequently flayed him alive for his hubris.

There's a webpage on the flaunting faun here. As for Permoser, one re him is here.

This would be the same Marsyas, pre-flailing) I caught Athene gawking at the year before in Frankfurt.

No flute in sight then, though. Unless the story refers to a different, flute-like appendage.

Tomcat Tattletail is the faerie-type Harmony is so enthralled with in Hellion. There's more on him here, here, here, here and here.

Even though I've collected a few other likenesses of Tomcat, which currently sit in my archives awaiting a mini-essay on him, I decided to use this one because of the anguished facial expression.

As for why he goes by the Q-name of Squirrelly in Hellion, hey, just look at him.

The Death's Head Hellion

Front and back cover for The Death's Head Hellion, artwork prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010

The front and back cover for the original digest version of "The Death's Head Hellion"; its back cover text is here whereas the current cover is here and its blurb is here.

There's an enlargement of the Cosme Tura picture here, along with some more details as to why I decided it represents Master Morgan Abyss.

As for why I refer to her as the Weirdom of Cabalarkon's demonically-empowered Master, well, guess whom she somehow got hold of after she got rid of the devil possessing her.

Or, if you're not one for guesswork, you could just click here, here and/or here.

NYC's Faux Bosch

An unidentified painting spotted in the Met Museum in NYC done in the style of Hieronymous Bosch, photo by Jim McPherson, 2009

Many painters tried to emulate Bosch's style in the 16th and 17th centuries. I took this picture of one such painting (unaccredited as near as I could discover) in New York City's Metropolitan Museum in 2009.

I use part of it to represent Magnus Minus, the mighty Minotaurus of Minius (Absudyl), which lies directly beneath the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld).

Double-click on the map to enlarge it to its 1978-standard black on white format.

A clickable version of it is on the Peculiar Places page whereas the more than just moderately amazing story of what I spotted in Cairo's Egyptian Museum is retold here and here.

There's more on Magnus Minus, who appears as a daemonic demiurge in Hellion, here, here and here.

Daemonic Royalty (Daemonicus & Primeval Lilith)

Lilith and Daemonicus, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010

The figure representing Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night, is by Henry Fuseli (1741-1825).

He called her Great Night so how could I not choose her to stand in for one of phantacea's most misunderstood stand-outs?

Below Lunatic Lily (who's still a mass murderer no matter how justifiable her actions could be considered), the Smiling Fiend, or someone similar, seems to be in one of his two-eyed Daemonicus moments.

I took it from a postcard I bought in Germany back in 2008 whereas the background is from a postcard I bought in Sintra, Portugal, on that same 6-week European vacation.

As for whether Demon Queen Lilith or Demon King Daemonicus-Smiler even appear in either mini-novel, well, let's just say not explicitly and leave it at that.

The Rat-Catcher of Hamelin

The Pied Piper of Hamelin, as scanned in from Fortean Times, 2010

Yes, I cannot spot the signature of Jordan "Q for Quill" Tethys in this shot either.

Yes also, in the Legendarian's defence, it is a copy of the a stained glass window he purports to have done early in the Outer Earth's 14th Century.

And, no, none of the rats are tee-tees. They're children. The koppen or calvary-like hillock is shaped like a tholos. though.

As for the cave's entrance, well, at a stretch it might pass for a skull-shape or golgotha. Myself, though, I don't stretch that far.

The copy reproduced here dates to 1592. It's by Augustin von Moersperg. The actual window was destroyed in 1660.

(This information is from FT 264, of which more here.)

The Anonymous Fiend

Budapest's Anonymous, shot by Jim McPherson in 2010

The Smiling Fiend is obviously not smiling in this shot of Budapest's famous Anonymous.

That said, given what Smiler's main attribute appears to be throughout the phantacea Mythos — namely that no one can remember him unless he's standing right in front of him or her and mindfully wants them to remember him — Anon has to be him.

It's almost impossible to hit a webpage on either of the two main phantacea websites that doesn't reference Smiler.

One taken from Hellion is here. A bunch of others link from here, here and here.

Hoodoo Housing

Hoodoo housing spotting in Cappadocia, photo by Jim McPherson, 2003

I shot the cliff-dwellings or, as they're called there, hoodoo housing in Cappadocia when I passed through it again in 2003.

Although they're not usually found on the coast of rainforests, something about the air beneath the Sedon Sphere allows for exceptional, um, exclusions from normality.

The double-click opens a new window with a larger version of the one I used on the Contagion cover. This one is more mound-like, which fits with who built the Hoodoo Hamlet visited in the mini-novel.

There are three brief travelogues re my trips to Turkey linked from here; the spookiest one, appropriately entitled 'The Phantom Train and other not quite Turkish delights', is here.

Devils & Deviants

Devils & Deviants collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Have to say deviants (the half-sons or half-daughters of Master Devas while possessing mortal men or women) tend to be more sympathetic characters than their seemingly immortal half-parent or parents.

Guess that's because mortality makes mamas (and papas) more, um, simpatico.

The Smiler figure's from New York's Metropolitan Museum. The shrouded beauty, representative of the incomparable Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium, is from the Victoria & Albert (V&A) museum in London.

Can't currently recall where the pinkish and demure Janna figure came from but have to say she doesn't look much like a Terrible Twin. Maybe that's why not just Abe Chaos fell for her.

Do know the wild-eyed fellow's from a postcard I bought in Germany. He was supposed to represent the other Terrible Twin, Sraddha Somata.

Too bad I couldn't find a picture of a black, bald and bearded hybrid-Utopian in my photo-archives.

Raised, not Razed

Embossed version of Fangers' front cover, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Good effect, eh?

It's called "embossing" on Photoshop, in case you were wondering.

What is razed during "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" – or near enough, and not altogether entirely due to the Trigregos Titaness, Hubby Zalman or their Terrible Twins – is the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

That it survived, or is surviving, in the Year of the Dome 5980, does not mean it will continue to do so.

Hence the 'Launch 1980' story cycle that began with War-Pox and carries on in the as-yet-upcoming "Goddess Gambit".

Gambit, btw (by the way), is not just based on the phantacea comic books (culminating in pH-6), it's, um, extrapolated from this web-serial and this draft (draught?) of ditto.

Viennese Vetala

Tiled version of a painting spotted and shot in Vienna by Jim McPherson, , 2009

This effect is called "tiling" on Photoshop. I like it.

As for why I called her the Viennese Vetala, that's because I shot her there. (All right, so I cloned in the 3rd eye. Big Whoop!)

Notes indicate the artist's name is Egon Schiele (1890-1918). A contemporary of Gustav Klimt, the Wikipedia webpage re him is here; double-click of original is here.

If he was still around I'd hire him. He's captured the relationship between Nergal Vetala and Janna become Fangfingers damn near perfectly — emphasis on 'damn'.

Janna Fangfingers

Full cover for Janna Fanfingers, text and collage by Jim McPherson, 2011

The front and back cover for "Janna Fangfingers"; its back cover text is here.

I used some of the same images in the 'Deviants & Devils' collage here; unadulterated Vienna Vetala double-clicks here;
========

As for the 'Devils in Disguise' collage below, Unholy Abaddon and Lightning Lord Yajur were taken from the Web; others are as per the notes on the 'Deviants & Devils' collage at the start of this row.

The central image of Death in a Hat (holding a man's head, not the other way around) was shot in a main street in Budapest, Hungary.

Devils in Disguise collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

I shot the hand in the British Museum but the fangs themselves, shown as if to finish off the fang-fingered glove, come from New York's Metropolitain Museum.

Re the owl, representative of Metowl (Titanic Metis), I'll have to get back to you on her.

Fauns Frolic Feverishly

Collage of fauns frolicking, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Sooth said, they do a lot more than frolic feverishly – and I'm not just referring to how fabulously they play the Syrian or panpipes.

For one thing, if this collage can be trusted (which it can't), they also seem to float contentedly once they're done whatever they were doing ever so feverishly.

It all has to do with the pheromones they secrete, you see. As for why this collage can't be trusted, as both Harmony and her triplet brother, Lord Order, discover in Hellion, demons do fauns just as well as they do anything else – which is to say, well enough for the moment.

Simultaneously, or at least almost in the same moment, Uncle Abe and Bedazzling Belialma discover denim-demons can do double-duty as panting pants.

All in all, they'd thereafter all agree, if they got the chance, it's a very hardening experience all around.

Except, that is, for phantacea's most famous fauna, Pusan Wanderlust.

For her, the experience isn't so much electrifying as it is electrocuting.

There's only ever one winner of a Sedonplay

Collage  referring to the fact that only the Moloch Sedon ever wins a Sedonplay, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Dark Sedon is a notorious gamesman. But is he actually playing a game in "The Death's Head Hellion" or has he been trapped in dozens of ancient eyeorbs forged in the First Weirworld — ones that will actually keep him torn apart and imprisoned indefinitely?

I could answer that but I'd rather you read Hellion yourself.

There's more on this graphic here.

The Great God Lazareme as Thrygragos Everyman

3 Images suggestive of Thrygragos Lazareme, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Thrygragos Lazareme was in some respects proof of the theorem that in every individual there resides the spark of godhood.

Put another way, if God, as he’d heard, was made in the image and likeness of whomever or whatever, he had an innate as well as, to quote him at his acerbic best, God-given aptitude for unthinkingly making sure he looked the part.

There's more on this graphic here.

Helios order Machine Memory to nuke Weir Star

Artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s, colour and text by Jim McPherson, 2007

The Trigregos Sisters appeared in pH-2, pH-4 and the graphic novel, "Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea".

They have yet to appear to appear in any of the mosaic novels but their terrible talismans certainly do, otherwise I'd have to come up with a different title for 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories'.

As for the Dual Entities, well, it may yet prove they appear whenever Thrygragos Lazareme or his indescribable daughter Harmony, the Unity of both Balance and Panharmonium.

There's more on this graphic here.

The Luscious Lady Lust

Apple Goddess Collage most specific to Bouncing Belle, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Hell's Belle lives her attribute. In Feel Theo, she seems primarily interested in Cruel Plathon, the Bull of Mithras.

In Hellion, she bounces from Uncle Abe Chaos (Unholy Abaddon) to his father, Thrygragos Lazareme, to his hated brother, Lord Order.

In Contagion, well, she only has a short but telling conversation with Harmony before she heads back to Chaos for some extracurricular star-gazing.

As for "Janna Fangfingers", the third part of 1000-Daze, remind to add to this entry when it comes out.

Herta Heartthrob

Datong Harmonia, collage by Jim McPherson ,2009

Dire, age 4, is a Norman Notable. In phantacea pHact he's actually Albrecht Durer, whom you may have heard of before. Dire and the hound Drang (whose name I admittedly also made up) appear a few times during Contagion.

It's my contention that Durer, like Bosch and the notorious Spanish inquisitor, Torquemada, were recruited by Contagion Collectors organized by Quoits Tethys (whose main agents were Tomcat Tattletail and Herta Heartthrob) and thereafter actually spent some time on the Hidden Headworld.

Strikes me as obvious, especially when it comes to Bosch and Durer.

I mean, where else would they have come up with such fantastical imagery firsthand, especially at the tail end of the Outer Earth's plague-ridden 15th Century?

Lathakra's Death God of Heat and Fire

Minerva as Methandra, photo taken in Frankfurt by Jim McPherson, 2008

Standard wisdom has it that bygone Illuminaries of Weir (on Earth) came up with Methandra's name by combining letters making up Mediterranean Athena (Minerva in Roman Mythology).

I'm pretty sure it actually derived from the name of Crete's Mother Goddess, who lived on Strongyne (modern day Santorini) until the infamous day Novadev got drunk and blew its heart into the sky.

But, hey, who am I to argue with standard wisdom. I'll leave that to Wisdom of Lazareme, who's quoted here (right next to where I cribbed this image.)

Lathakra's Death God of Cold and Ice

Collage suggestive of King Cold, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

The Death God's of Lathakra (Cold and Heat) are Mithradite firstborn. Their triplet brother is Phantast Thanatos, the Death God of Dream.

Phantast doesn't appear in 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' Trilogy. He isn't mentioned very often either. And when he is it's usually in the same sentence as Strife and the Crimson Conspiracy of circa 4000 YD.

Tantal and Methandra do, however, especially, as per here, in Hellion. As does their azura daughter Klannit (the Mirror Mentalist).

Mithras's Golden Avenger

Collage on Faceless Strife prepared by Jim McPherson, 2007,  integral images taken from Web

Just because Faceless Strife, Mithras's so-called Ewe for Aries and the devic half-mother of Taurus Chrysaor Attis, doesn't appear in Hellion, that doesn't mean devils realize it.

Daddy Cabby's Champion

Tura's Allegory of Spring reminds me of Morgan Abyss, the Master of Weir circa 4825 YD

At least that's one way of thinking about Morgan Abyss, the Master of the Weirdom of the Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent) in 4824/5.

It may or may not be the way she thinks about herself. It certainly isn't the way devils think about her, especially after the events of the Infernal Equinox.

Until then they probably didn't think about her very much at all. If they did, which Harmony did prior to Mithramas 4824, they likely reckoned her Pyrame's shell.

Deviancies and phantacea

Some of the Deviants appearing in 1000 Daze, Jim McPherson 2011

Some of 1000-Daze's Deviants include, as noted in this graphic, Q-Troupe's Squirrelly, Master Morgan Abyss, Pusan Wanderlust, Tomcat Tattletail and the ever-present Jordan 'Quill' Tethys.

Images incorporated in this collage come from a variety of places, Durer included. The quill's actually taken from a wall painting I spotted and shot in Vancouver some years back now.

As per here, I also used it on the cover for "Janna Fangfingers", the third mini-novel extracted from 1000-Daze.

 

Nergal Vetala as Fecundity

An ancient goddess with a moon-sickle, photographed in a one-time Roman bathouse, circa Nero's time, in  2008

She waxes and wanes with the moon, on a monthly basis, but as the Nergalids' Grower, she's also related to fertility goddesses such as the Roman Ceres (hence our word 'cereal').

The thing about Ceres and her ilk is they're mostly perceived as beneficent. Vetala is too, at least initially and especially by the Iraches of Sedon's Mutton Chop (on a map of the Hidden Continent).

Of course, they like nothing better than having their ancestors over for tea and buttered scones.

Top of Section - Downwards

 

Vetala's also a (very nasty) Moon Goddess

Vetala as Moon Goddess Fecundity, image of a Judith figure shot in Florence, Italy, by Jim McPherson 2008

The reference is mainly to what she, when in seductress mode, does to Pyrame Silverstar in Feel Theo.

She's much better behaved in Hellion and Contagion, though she does suggest to Order that he cathonitizes himself, which isn't a very nice thing to say to a Master Deva.

(As per here, it's way worse than telling a devil to go f**k himself, which of course is what Geld Neargon does whenever he-she desires azuras.)

Magnus Minus, the Mighty Minotaurus of Minius

Shot of a demon, behind glass, taken by Jim McPherson in Lima, Peru, in 1998 and modified on PHOTOSHOP in 2007

Minius is Absudyl, the Subterranean Land of the Mandroids, beneath Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

As for who made Minus in the first place, the double-click suggests Pyrame Silverstar.

One mustn't forget who she was occupying, unless it was the other way around (as would seem the case in Hellion), throughout most of the Head's history, however.

Utopians of Weir

The caption reads: Mythos Utopian Eyeorbs Manifesting Gargoyle; images of Cacuceus and Gargoyles were taken from the Internet and  put together by Jim McPherson, using PHOTOSHOP, in 2004

There were (as opposed to 'are') two Weirworlds. The second one is where the Trigregos Sisters were last seen in the comic books and graphic novel.

There are also a variety of different kinds of Utopians in phantacea. Hybrid Utopians, who are no longer purebloods, are mostly found outside the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld).

As such they dominate proceedings in Contagion. Pure U-Bloods are the focus in Hellion, however.

That said, Morgan Abyss, the Master of Cabalarkon throughout the mini-novel, isn't even a hybrid. That doesn't mean she doesn't hate Sedon, though.

Far from it!

Ring-Gotten Devils

Ringot with Metowl, by Bosch

Virtually ever since I began phantacea on the Web in (gasp!) 1996, I've run a feature entitled Serendipity. It chronicles all sorts of serendipitous discoveries that make me wonder how much I've actually made up and how much of phantacea is real.

Consider now ringots. Those familiar with the comic books (Aristotle 'Ringleader 2' Zeross) and/or the Web Serials (Angelo 'Ringleader 1' Zeross) will have recognized them straightaway.

Centuries before either Zeross, father or son, came along, they figure rather irreplaceably in both Hellion and Contagion.

Intriguingly, nay serendipitously, guess what Bosco, age 26, must have spotted in the not precisely aforementioned Garden of Earthy Delights besides the Juggler (double-click for a cut-out)?

Yep, a ringot — and not just any ringot either but one containing Metisophia, the Legendarian's devic half-mother. How do I know this?

Well, in "Janna Fangfingers", the concluding third of 1000-Daze, guess who returns? As for why she's called Metowl by then, um, well (again), it gets complicated.

Aka Titanic Metis, she doesn't feature in Hellion because she's been ring-gotten. (Her purloined cauldron does, however.)

And the Juggler's on the cover of Contagion at least in part because his belly shows Metis ring-gotten. Only, I just realized that about a year after I prepared the cover.

Talk about serendipity delayed.

Covers for 2 1000-Daze mini-novels, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010covers for Contagion Collectors and Death's Head HellionThere are plenty of websites that display artwork by Hieronymous Bosch (Bosco, age 26, in "Contagion Collectors") and Albrecht Durer (Dire, age 4, in "Contagion Collectors"). Wikipedia, for example, has plenty by both. In order to save you a search, I've highlighted a few of them.

In terms of Bosch, I took the Juggler and the lower edge of the front cover for Contagion from a triptych entitled 'The Garden of Earthly Delights'. For reasons made clear therein, it's called the garden of earthy delights in Contagion. The mini-novel also makes clear that Bosch didn't make it up — at least he didn't within the phantacea Mythos.

'The Ascent of the Empyrean', which appears on both the front and back cover of Contagion, is one-fourth of a major work entitled 'Visions of Beyond'. The version I used is from a poster replacing the actual painting in the Doge's palace of Venice. Apparently the original was being cleaned while I was there in 2008.

As for Durer, the putto (who once ate Sinistral Envy), Drang (not yet a dachshund, thus not yet having wolfed down the murine crud containing Camorva Freeflight) and Herta Heartthrob (a technically daemonic, hence soulless, earthborn eidolon given flesh) come from Melancholia.

(Should perhaps add, as a bonus teaser, that Herta is a melancholic angel in the sense that she has wings and is lovely, except she seems plagued by sadness at her own lack of fulfillment. Above all else, she wants to wholly devour the Unity of Balance, whom even she perceives as Beauty Incarnate, instead of simply settling for gathered-up scum-cream left behind on Tholoi hearthstones that Harmony used to get to the Outer Earth in pursuit of Tomcat Tattletail – a character introduced as such in Hellion – long, and often, pre-book.)

Both Death and the goatish Devil came from 'The Knight'. The 'Four Horsemen' came from just that. Two version of page backgroundsTwo versions of potential cover for 1000 Daze, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2009As for why he depicted the rider with the Scales of Justice (unless it's for weighing produce in times of pestilence, drought, and/or consequential famine) as a man instead of the most incomparably gorgeous woman ever beheld by everyone, well, assuming the phantacea Mythos isn't pure fantasy, Dire was only 4 at the time of Contagion and might have been missing his mother, if not his dog.

The British Museum has piles of Durer's prints. It even puts out a small hardcover that can probably be ordered online as if just to prove it. I scanned in the ones I used for the covers on this page, as well as its background images, from art books I already had at home.

Just by the bye, as per here, Durer's Death looks a lot like old King Cold, Tantal Thanatos, did in the comic books. Which is doubly appropriate since Cold is one of the aforementioned Death Gods of Lathakra – the other being immediate sister Methandra, Hot Stuff, Mithras's Virgin (in both Feel Theo and Hellion, though no longer in the comic books) or just plain Heat (after her attribute) – and Thanatos is the name of the Ancient Greek God of Death.

Just as interesting (to me anyhow), Durer's Devil might well be someone the recurring deviant, Pusan Wanderlust, would fall for in both Hellion and Contagion. That's because, as per here, Pusan's a female faun or fauna and everyone knows what fauns are best at doing, a lot. It's also why I incorporated Durer's Devil into the Deviancies graphic.

NOTE: the last two images in this panel don't double-click. They roll over, rather effectively I feel.

The background image for this page is taken from part of a black and white collage/cover I prepared for War-Pox's 1000-Daze bonus chapter; as also per here I did a colour version of it as well; a perhaps too busy variant is here; also on this page a light greenish version can be seen here and here; an even lighter version of it can be seen here; double-click on the images in this panel for blow-ups of the page backgrounds. Return to the image rollovers here.

Some of the shots that went into these collages can also be seen here and here; here and here provide hints as to the identities of three mainly minor players in 'Contagion Collectors' (and hence also "The 1000 Days of Disbelief"); there's an explicit spoiler here and here as to their identities; as for why Durer's 4 Horsemen remind me of Thrygragos Lazareme and his firstborn Unities, that's here; many of the images referred to in this panel reappear throughout this, the Character Companion page for 1000-Daze.
