Circa the Year of Dome 2000, Anvil the Artificer, a then otherwise unnamed, highborn Lazaremist later called Tvasitar Smithmonger, dedicated the first three devic talismans, or power foci, that he forged out of molten Brainrock to the Trigregos Sisters.

The long lost, possibly even dead, simultaneous mothers of devakind hated their offspring for abandoning them on the far-off planetary Utopia of New Weir. Not surprisingly, their fearsome talismans could be used to kill Master Devas (devils).

For most of twenty-five hundred years, they belonged to the recurring deviant, Chrysaor Attis, time after time proven a devaslayer. On Thrygragon, Mithramas Day 4376 YD, he turned them over to his Great God of a half-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, to use against his two brothers, Unmoving Byron and Little Star Lazareme, in hopes of usurping their adherents and claiming them as his own.

Hundreds of years later, these selfsame thrice-cursed Godly Glories helped turn the devil-worshippers of Sedon's Head against their seemingly immortal, if not necessarily undying gods. Now, five hundred years after the 1000 Days of Disbelief, they've been relocated.

The highest born, surviving devic goddesses want them for themselves; want to thereby become incarnations of the Trigregos Sisters on the Hidden Continent. An Outer Earthling, one who has literally fallen out of the sky after the launching of the Cosmic Express, gets to them first ...

In the Year of the Dome 4825, Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon, seizes control of Primeval Lilith, the ageless, seemingly unkillable Demon Queen of the Night. The eldritch earthborn is the real half-mother of the invariably mortal Sed-sons but, once she has hold of her, aka Lethal Lily, Master Morgan proceeds to trap the Moloch Sedon Himself.

In the midst of the bitter, century-long expansion of the Lathakran Empire, the Hidden Headworld's three tribes of devil-gods are forced to unite in an effort to release their All-Father. Unfortunately for them, they're initially unaware Master Morg, the Death's Head Hellion herself, has also got hold of the Trigregos Talismans, devic power foci that can actually kill devils, and Sedon's thought-father Cabalarkon, the Undying Utopian she'll happily slay if they dare attack her Weirdom.

Utopians from Weir have never given up seeking to wipe devils off not just the face of the Inner Earth, but off the planet itself. Their techno and biomages, under the direction of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon's extremely long-lived High Illuminary, Quoits Tethys, have determined there is only one sure way to do that -- namely, to infect the devils' Inner Earth worshippers with fatal plagues brought in from the Outer Earth.

Come All-Death Day there are more Dead Things Walking than Living Beings Talking. Believe it or not, that's the good news.

Kadmon Heliopolis had one life. It ended in October 1968. The Male Entity has had many lives. In his fifth, he and his female counterpart, often known as Miracle Memory, engendered more so than created the Moloch Sedon. They believe him to be the Devil Incarnate. They've been attempting to kill him ever since. Too bad it's invariably he, Heliosophos (Helios called Sophos the Wise), who gets killed instead.

On the then still Whole Earth circa the Year 4000 BCE, one of their descendants, Xuthros Hor, the tenth patriarch of Golden Age Humanity, puts into action a thought-foolproof, albeit mass murderous, plan to succeed where the Dual Entities have always failed. He unleashes the Genesea. The Devil takes a bath.

Fifty-nine hundred and eighty years later, New Century Enterprises launches the Cosmic Express from Centauri Island. It never reaches Outer Space; not all of it anyhow. As a stunning consequence of its apparent destruction, ten extraordinary supranormals are reunited, bodies, souls and minds, after a quarter century in what they've come to consider Limbo. They name themselves the Damnation Brigade. And so it appears they are -- if perhaps not so much damned as doomed.

At least one person survives the launching of the Cosmic Express. He literally falls out of the sky -- on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head. An old lady saves him. Except this old lady lives in a golden pagoda, rides vultures and has a third eye. She also doesn't stay old long. He becomes her willing soldier, acquires the three Sacred Objects and goes on a rampage, against his own people, those that live.

Meanwhile, Centauri Island, the launch site of the Cosmic Express, comes under attack from Hell's Horsemen. Only it's not horses they ride. It's Atomic Firedrakes!

1. The Damnation Brigade in Cabalarkon

  • Blind Sundown:
    • real name: John Sundown, most of his fellow D-Brig members seem to call him Johnny;
    • Summoning Child native North American, a Cheyenne, though he calls his tribe the Tis-tsis-tas or Human Beings;
    • considers himself a Creature of the Cosmos; also calls himself a Wakinyah Thunder Being or, sometimes, a Thundercloud Creature;
    • wasn't always blind; in the early 1940s traded his sight to a Cheyenne Medicine Man, Shaman Manitoulin, for his solar spear and the right to ride Raven’s Head, his fellow Wakinyah Thunder Creature;
    • original supranormal ability: an exclusion zone that seemingly protects him from being harmed by projectiles, but also negates the powers of other supras with whom he is direct contact;
    • can see through others’ eyes when he is in direct contact with them;
  • Cyborg Cerebrus:
    • born in the late 1920s, son of Loxus Abraham Ryne and Eden Nightingale; twin brother of Saul ‘Psycho’ Ryne; older brother of Aranyani Nightingale, among a number of others all of whom (save Aran) are twins;
    • lived through being accidentally shot in the head by the Silver Arrow assassin codenamed Sagitta in late 1930s;
    • headplate installed during the Christmas Holiday Season of 1946/7 turns out to be of Utopian design;
    • submerged in a tub of Cathonic Fluid within the Catacombs of the Sleepers beneath the Grand Central Square of Cabalarkon City after (barely) surviving an encounter with Mars Bellona, the Apocalyptic of War, in Temporis on the 6th of Tantalar 5980;
  •  OMP-Akbar:
    • on the Outer Earth went by the name of Obadiah Melvin Power; evidently an amnesiac unknown until spotted walking out of Hiroshima’s Ground Zero with his then wife, Corona Power, in August 1945;
    • apparently ageless near-giant codenamed OMP (Old Man Power) when he became a member of the postwar KOC: the King’s Own Crimefighters;
    • still has his rune-carved Homeworld Sceptre, but his so-called regalia, which he intentionally destroyed at the beginning of December 1980, turned out to be the Thrygragos Talismans from (mostly) 2008’s Feeling Theocidal (Feel Theo)— the Mask of Byron, the mutable Spear of Mithras and Lazareme’s Cloak of Many Colours;
    • on the Inner Earth of Sedon’s Head proved to be Akbarartha; in the midst of The War of the Apocalyptics (War-Pox), became revealed as the eldest half-son of Dand (Devalord) Tariqartha, Lazareme’s Persian or Earth Magician and, therefore, the rightful Kronokronos Supreme of Temporis;
    • booted out of Temporis along with the rest of D-Brig by the freshly turned 18-year old usurper Lakshmi Arthadot, she of Lemuria, whom he was supposed to marry on the 6th of Tantalar 5980;
    • no one seems too sure as to the identity of his devic half-mother, if he had one: the Pauper Priestess, Pyrame Silverstar, is one possibility; another is Malar Tzigame, Byron’s Butterfly;
    • his twin sister Meroudys may have become the future Eden Nightingale during 1920’s Simultaneous Summonings;
  • Radiant Rider:
    • birth name: Gloriella D’Angelo; married name: Dark; codename Radiant Rider; also known as Rainbow, Gloriel, Glory of the Angels;
    • born on Good Friday 1933 (April 14), the same day as Aranyani Nightingale and Thea Mandam; that might make her a Great Goddess reincarnate if she’d passed the Totem Pool test, which she ended up never taking due to Thea’s unavailability after apparently never being born;
    • a materialist, also known as an etherealist (as in ‘make ether real’); flies on rainbow hair and casts solid rainbows; had been known to project her ‘little angels’, which may be azuras (the offspring of Master Devas by themselves, without possessing anyone);
    • blames her Big Angel for killing Mr Brilliant, whom she came to consider Lucifer Incarnate (Domdaniel-Pride) after he, possessing Dr Immanuel Dark – a thereafter wheelchair-bound cripple – killed her brother Gabriel (Codename Klarion, the supra Trumpeter), in 1953;
    • seems devils cannot possess her; causing some to believe she’s a reborn Celestial like her Aunt Celestine, once the Anthean sisterhood’s Celestial Superior (who may still exist, albeit as Gloriel’s Big Angel);
    • another possibility is that she somehow gained Castella Thanatos’s power focus when she was shorn of it on the same day, albeit on the Inner Earth, that Gloriel was born;
    • four of her older siblings (Nita, Peter, Claudia and Leandro) seem to have gained abilities similar to some of the fourth generational Thanatoids cathonitized on the same day she was born (Ereba, Antaeor, Auraura and Constantine);
    • has a daughter named Estrella (Star) whose father was Doc Dark; both are still alive beyond the Dome, as are her parents and three of her once ten strong siblings;
    • given twenty-five years lost in Limbo, with her body separated from her mind, Gloriel is still 22 whereas Star Dark is 27 while Doc Dark is a Summoning Child (therefore soon to turn 60 at outset of the mini-novel);
  • Raven’s Head:
    • inhuman, possibly ageless, hybrid creature akin to something out of native Indian mythology or trickster folklore, albeit after the arrival of the White Man and his horses;
    • considers herself a Creature of the Cosmos like her usual rider, Blind Sundown; also calls herself a Wakinyah Thunder Being or, sometimes, a Thundercloud Creature;
    • not a thunderbird, though could be its inspiration (if it isn't a pterodactyl native to the Head’s Floodlands); has a raven’s head, a horse’s feathered body, talarial wings akin to Mercury’s on both sides of her four upper hooves;
    • despite being altogether alive, at least partially a self-psychopomp or spirit-carrier, meaning she can get about between-space (the Weird, the Grey, the dark grey universal substance of Samsara);
    • develops a unicorn horn when in the vicinity of devils; it along with Sundown’s Solar Spear forms a binary weapon that can cathonitize Master Devas; probably can’t kill them, though Utopians of Weir believe she and Sundown are devaslayers (devil-slayers);
    • also together with Sundown, forms an obscuring cloud about herself when on the Outer Earth;
    • not a shape-shifter, when she appears on the Outer Earth its under the (hated) glamour of a horse;
    • unclear who set up the glamour (aural manipulation); might have been Shaman Manitoulin or one of his predecessors, could have been Sorciere or even Wilderwitch, but activates it herself as required;
    • intelligent, can sort of speak, though not many can understand the sounds she makes;
    • not the last of her kind, though she doesn’t realize that;
    • a solitary Raven’s Head was pictured on the cover of 1990’s release of Phantacea Publications’ Forever & 40 Daysthe Genesis of PHANTACEA {‘4Ever40’}, which ended in 4000 BC;
  • Untouchable Diver:
    • real name: Yehudi Cohen;
    • German born, probably only half-Jewish Summoning Child whose father may have been the old Baron Tyrtod von Alptraum, the Prussian nobleman who formed the basis for the various, mostly postwar Steltsars, on both sides of the Dome, and 1980’s Sharkczar (from Nuclear Dragons {Nuke} and Helios on the Moon {Helmoon});
    • gained the ability to make himself untouchable at will while dressed in a rubber wetsuit of his own makings in 1938; can also render those he’s in contact with just as intangible; 
    • he found his Gorgon Goggles – what allow him a degree of far-sight and the ability to see through the ground while soil-swimming – in the Roman Colosseum a few weeks prior to becoming the Diver;
    • discovers he’s not only Brainrock-blessed but can feed off the miraculous substance also called Gypsium-Godstuff duringGoddess Gambit (Gambit);
    • as such has become a self-psychopomp (spirit-carrier), meaning he can travel between-space by himself, without using the equivalent of a devil’s Tvasitar talisman, Ringleader’s rings or witch stones;
    • unfortunately, when he does so he tends to ‘blip’ (become unconscious, sometimes for long periods of time — hours, even days)
    • wife Rachel, yet another Summoning Child, is still alive on the Outer Earth in December 1980; so are two of their four children;
    • seems he also had a son by Fisherwoman (Scylla Nereid) in the late Thirties, early Forties, who grew up to become Chthlonius ‘Tiger’ Tiecher, one of Kadmon Helios’s Trigon Spartae, all of whom apparently died with Heliopolis on Aegean Trigon in 1968;
  • Wildman Dervish Furie:
    • real name (Gentleman) Jervis Murray;
    • a Summoning Child like the Elemental Twins (Aires and Thalassa, now believed to be Thanatoids of Lathakra), the Diver and Blind Sundown;
    • as such only a few days or weeks short of his 60th birthday (35th, discounting Limbo) at start of mini-novel;
    • no one seems to know what the full Furie looks like, though it appears it might be akin to a rabid faun or satyr;
    • the Dervish is a hairy, juggernaut of sheer raw power with impervious skin who, as a teenager and young adult, was sometimes referred to as a Werewolf in Shorts;
    • as Jervis Murray he was Wilderwitch’s long time lover; wasn’t Fey Woman’s father, however, as he’s infertile;
    • he has some sort of relationship with Young Death (Augustus Nauroz on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head, the revenant supra Bokor, magician or Voodoo Child known as Auguste Moirnoir beyond the Dome), who calls him ‘son’ for some reason;
    • it’s beginning to look like the Furie is a devil, possibly the Lazaremist known as Lemolo Wildwyck, who hasn’t been seen on the Head for many generations;
    • Morgianna ‘Morg’ Sarpedon, the Hellion’s Morrigan until the events on Diminished Dustmound on the 8th of Tantalar 5980, was using aspects of her devil-eating daemonic heritage to draw him out of Murray;
    • without the Dervish’s engine (namely, the Furie), Jervis Murray would likely be entirely human, possibly even a dead human (see ‘Sister Grandmother’, a short story that rounded out 4Ever40);
  • Wilderwitch:
    • Large carving spotted and shot in Puerto Morelos in 2014 by Jim McPhersonborn around the Winter Solstice or Mithramas Day, Tantalar 5927, purportedly of the Dual Entities, though who was humanizing Miracle Memory is unclear;
    • devic half-mother might have been Krepusyl Evenstar, Twilight’s Grey Lady, which would make her Tsishah Twilight’s quarter-sister as Miss Mist was occupying Morgianna not yet Sarpedon when she conceived her a few years later, in 5933;
    • the Witch, capitalized, claims she doesn’t have a real name, though it may be Cynthemis Dyana, which Murray-Furie thinks it is, or possibly Cynthia, which Saladin Devason comes to call her;
    • had one child pre-Limbo, a daughter (nowadays Fey Woman), born in 1946, but keeps the identity of her father secret;
    • Fey (Faith McBride beyond the Dome, self-named Phaedra within the universal substance of Samsara, seemingly her natural habitat) was raised exclusively by the Anthean Sisterhood so the Witch properly regards her more as a younger sister than a daughter;
    • given twenty-five years lost in Limbo, with her body separated from her mind, the Witch is 28, or soon will be, whereas Fey is 34 at outset of mini-novel;
    • possibly the weakest member of D-Brig, her major supranormal attribute is that she was born able to do anything a fully trained Anthean witch can do;
    • does have above average strength and speed as well as an affinity for forest animals, especially wolves, who may have raised her;
    • her soul-self is mute but horrible to behold; she cannot solidify it and has to use her natural born ability to cast sensory glamours to make it seem like she can;
    • Freespirit Nihila once claimed she was her Harmony-self reincarnated;

2. The Dual Entities

  • Heliosophos:
    • Helios called Sophos the Wise, the Male Entity;
    • Brainrock-blessed time-tumbler (as opposed to ‘controlled’ time traveller, none of whom exist in the Phantacea Mythos due to contextual impossibility);
    • at outset of mini-novel, believed decapitated and killed (for the 100th time) on the Moon in early-to-mid December 1980;
    • thinks he was Kadmon Heliopolis in his first lifetime;
    • many others reckon he was originally Anti-Patriarch Cain, Slayer of Abel, and therefore the son of Primeval Lilith and the second Biblical Adam (the golden-apple-eating first patriarch Alorus Ptah, who had blue skin and golden hair, the same look both Helios and Thrygragos Lazareme affect sometimes);

      ========

  • Miracle Memory:
    • the Mnemosyne Machine, Machine-Memory, the Mnemosyne 3-Thing, the Female Entity;
    • at outset of mini-novel, believed thrust back into the time-stream along with Trans-Time Trigon when the Male Entity was killed on the Moon in early-to-mid December 1980;
    • believes she’s an amalgamation of First Weirworld’s original Mother Machine, Mnemosyne D'Angelo (Human Memory, Kadmon Heliopolis’s long dead step-mom from his first lifetime), and Datong Harmonia (Harmony), the Unity of Balance, from his second lifetime;
    • can only be fully humanized by Master Devas (devils), prominently Pyrame Silverstar, the Harmony Unity or Methandra Thanatos;
    • demons seem to have much the same solidifying effect on her but are dull-witted and weak compared to devils; evidently she can’t conceive when solely solidified by demons;
    • as per 4Ever40, was once humanized by the three Great Goddesses (Trigregos Demeter, Trigregos Devaura and Trigregos Sapiendev); with whom, as per Helmoon, she keeps in touch;

    ========

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

  • The Moloch Sedon
    • seemingly immortal, tremendously powerful, but nowhere-near-almighty All-Father of Devazurkind; likes to appear to Westerners in particular as the Devil Himself, capitalized;
    • a dark star above the Hidden Headworld during the day, hence Dark Sedon, his essence makes up Cathonia (the Cathonic Zone or Dome, also the Sedon Sphere);
    • there, as seen as early as 1977’s Phantacea One, it takes the form of the Mighty Eye-Mouth in the Sky, a fact that devils, Illuminaries of Weir and a number of witches seem to know;
    • as per 4Ever40, believes the Undying Utopian Cabalarkon is his father/creator, thus denying any contribution from the time-tumbling Dual Entities in Helios’s Fifth Lifetime on the first Weirworld some two hundred light years earlier;

      ========

  • 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), who sees himself as having blue skin and golden hair; in other words, a three-eyed version of Alorus Ptah (the Male Entity in his 61st lifetime); those who behold him think they're seeing their idea of what God looks like;
      • 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, as per 2008’s Feeling Theocidal (Feel Theo), may well have also been Uranus, Kronos and Zeus, in that order, as well as many another pantheon’s God the Father prior to circa 1500 BC (2500 YD, Year of the Dome);
    • at outset of mini-novel, Byron is the brightest star in the south-western quadrant of the night’s sky; Varuna Mithras has been dead, apparently irredeemably, since the 44th Century of the Dome, and no one seems to know what’s become of Lazareme;
    • circa 2000 YD (2000 BC) Anvil the Artificer (Tvasitar Smithmonger, the devic smithy) crafted the Thrygragos Talismans for the Thrygragos Brothers; they are (or were): the Mask of Byron, the mutable Spear of Mithras and Lazareme’s Cloak of Many Colours;
    • The often three-in-one Great Goddesses are:
      • Trigregos Devaura (the Spirit or Soul), Trigregos Demeter (the Body), and Trigregos Sapiendev (the Mind or Individual Consciousness);
    • they appeared in 4Ever40 and, much more prominently, in Helmoon, but do not appear in the mini-novel;
    • neither do their terrible talismans, which the devic smithy crafted for the Master Devas’ simultaneous mothers; they are (or were): the Amateramirror, the Crimson Corona and the Susasword;
    • at least they don’t appear for sure in the mini-novel;

      ========

  • 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 azura spirit beings;
- 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;
- thereafter, on the 5th of Tantalar 5980, the Quadrang or, less accurately, Apocalyptic Nucleoids (Jah Dreadlock, Hatchethands, Mandragora Gallows Ghoul and Flying Doltaur), whom Matare bore in the Calvary Cavern were born a foursome, not either a twosome or threesome;
- the Byronic Nucleus and the hence Apocalyptic Nucleus cathonitized each other the next day, the 6th of Tantalar, an event that brought to an end the war of the Apocalyptics and also resulted in what was left of D-Brig’s expulsion from Temporis by Lakshmi of Lemuria;
- 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;

  • Significant Lazaremists

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; as per “The 1000 Days of Disbelief” {Daze}, actually existed from roughly 5000 to 5500 Year of the Dome);
- 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, chain-mail gowns and the broken chains often manifested manacled to her wrists; from them she sometimes shoots, what else?, chain lightning;
- folklore has it that Harmony is incomparable because she is mostly Gypsium and, therefore, not humanized by demons; probably isn't true, however;
- those who beheld her thought they were seeing their ideal female;

Freespirit Nihila, from War-Pox, Gambit and Helmoon, claims she was once Harmony;
- she also told Kronokronos Akbar and Wilderwitch in the Faerie Garden of Temporis, on the 6th of Tantalar, that she believed the Witch was her incarnation;

========

  • The Thanatoids of Lathakra

Methandra Thanatos, a firstborn Mithradite also known, accurately, if perhaps somewhat disrespectfully, as Hot Stuff;
- a red-skinned, flame-haired giantess; almost always masked and thoroughly covered in fabrics invariably coloured different shades of red, pink or purple;
- power focus is a firebrand or matchstick (cane);
- the mother, while being subsumed by a be-brained, glassine 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, Superior Sarpedon and dangerous daughter Andaemyn, among others, belong in the mid-to-late 60th Century of the Dome);
- for thousands of years known as Mithras’s Virgin; shunned the attentions of both her grandfather, Dark Sedon, and her father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, while in turn being ignored by true love and triplet-brother Tantal (King Cold);
- 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;
- her ten, fourth generational offspring from when she was possessing Miracle Memory and Tantal Heliosophos were Day and Night (Castella and Ereba), the Four Elements (Antaeor-Earth, Acheron-Fire, Thalassa-Water Aires-Air) and the Four Seasons (Veronas-Summer, Auraura-Winter, Constantin-Spring, and Orinth-Autumn);
- was pregnant with Sedunihas (who has yellow skin & only ages one year in five) and Motan (who was stillborn) when hit by Sedona's Spell of Disproportionment on Antheal 14, 5933, on the slopes of Sedon's Peak;

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;
- his ten, fourth generational offspring from when he was possessing Heliosophos and Methandra Miracle Memory were Day and Night (Castella and Ereba), the Four Elements (Antaeor-Earth, Acheron-Fire, Thalassa-Water and Aires-Air) and the Four Seasons (Veronas-Summer, Auraura-Winter, Constantin-Spring, and Orinth-Autumn);
- hit by Smoky Sedona Spellbinder's Spell of Disproportionment on Antheal 14, 5933, while coming down from Sedon’s Peak with sister-wife and ten fourth generation children;
- also the father of yellow-skinned Sedunihas the Artist who came along in 5955 and only ages one year in five;

Klannit Thanatos, the world’s first azura; presumably the entire cosmos’s first azura as well;
- Thanatoid parents were subsumed by demons, one of whom was a glassine Klannit, when she was conceived pre-Dome;
- aspires to becoming a Master Deva in her own right but can’t dominate sentient beings unless they’re either simpletons or else dead;
- nevertheless has a near-devic affinity for mirrors; so much so she can both far-see and communicate either verbally or mentally through them;
- when they were both strictly spirit beings she and Anvil the Artificer, the Lazaremist master craftsman named Tvasitar Smithmonger, were lovers; he has been striving for nearly four thousand years to craft her a functional shell such that they can be lovers again;
- claims to have been to the Outer Earth a number of times during the so-called Secret Wars of the Supranormals (which lasted from early 1938 until late 1955);
- claims further to have brought her affinity for mirrors to a couple of those selfsame supras; says her supra codename was the Mirror Mentalist even though her simpleton shells sometimes had different codenames;
- appeared a number of times throughout the Phantacea Mythos, most notably in Gambit, wherein she occupied Nanny Klanny, the brain-damaged Sraddhite who looked after Thartarre Holgatson after his parents disappeared in the 5940s;
- it was her affinity for mirrors that allowed her locate her decathonitized, fourth generational siblings on the Outer Earth’s moon during Helmoon;

Aires and Thalassa D’Angelo, Air and Sea, D-Brig’s Elemental Twins, Summoning Children adopted by Gloriel’s parents Raphael and (Sainted) Sophia nee St Synne in April 1933 but now believed to be fourth generational Thanatoids;

Sedunihas, evidently the last non-cathonitized, or otherwise unaccounted for, devic offspring of Tantal and Methandra Thanatos;
- one definite brother (Antaeor, Demon Land) appeared in War-Pox, which came out in 2009; another brother and two sisters seem somehow connected to Airealist (Aires-Air), Sea Goddess (Thalassa-Water) and Radiant ‘Rainbow’ Rider (Castella-Day), three members of the Damnation Brigade who also appeared in War-Pox;
- his ice-statues of elder siblings Ereba-Night, Castella-Day, Acheron-Fire, Auraura-Winter, Constantin-Spring and Orinth-Autumn allowed Klannit to find them on the Outer Earth’s moon during Helmoon;
- a yellow-skinned, age-retarded artist who specializes in producing exceedingly lifelike statuary;
- for reasons not as yet provided in tremendous detail, was not given birth until 5955;
- (the highborn Byronic, Smoky Sedona’s Spell of Disproportionment rendered Methandra six inches tall in 5933; she thereupon transferred the twin foetuses to Klannit, who was by then in a homunculus crafted for her by Tvasitar Smithmonger around the same time; the foetuses were transferred back to her once the spell reversed and Methandra reverted to her giantess size, whereupon Tantal became six inches tall; the spell reversed again before she could give birth; this happened a few times until Sedunihas was born in 5955 YD);
- 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 five years old in Tantalar 5980;
- a bust he was preparing of his grandfather, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, was destroyed during the course of Gambit by the never-remember Smiling Fiend (Smiler, Bad Rhad, Rhadamanthys in the PHANTACEA comic books, Sodom to Pyrame’s Gomorrah, also Ahriman);
- seems to have a ‘thing’ for Athena ‘Tina’ Zeross, age 6 in 5980, which may or may not come into play again during mini-novel;

========

  • Significant other Mithradites

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 pickax; hence King Harvest, the Mithradites’ Reaper or Harvester;
- for millennia alternated, on a lunar basis, impregnating duties of much younger sister Fecundity (Nergal Vetala) with brood-older brother Gravedigger (Zuvem Nergalis);
- unchallenged devic ruler of the radioactive Ghostlands since circa 4825 YD;
- as such, Death’s Angels, whose touch can kill but, being predominantly animated by Nergalazurs, bodily dissolve in rain or running water, are his to command;
- more so than the first-born Thanatoids of Lathakra or the eighth-born Primary Apocalyptics’ Mother Murder (the Medusa, Mater Matare, who wasn’t born until, at the earliest, Mithras’s Twelfth), he’s considered the devils’ primary Death God;
- in Sedon’s Sweat Glands (the Flood and Lake Lands on a map of Sedon’s Head), during the first week of Tantalar 5980, suffered a severe setback to his efforts to march his Inglorious Dead from the Ghostlands to Hadd; thus failing to bring much needed reinforcements to Janna Fangfingers in Hadd;
- forced to retreat to his usual domicile Pettivisaya (Wailing Souls), which was Dark Sedon and Pyrame Silverstar’s power base prior to events described in “The Death’s Head Hellion” (Hellion); as such, and for most of the Hidden Headworld’s history, Pettivisaya was known as Grand Elysium;

========

  • Moderately Significant Byronics

APM All-Eyes, as she is most commonly known, is the 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;
- as per Helmoon, an aspect of APM survived the attack on Godbad by an outraged All of Incain; it, a dinky, winged eyeball akin to Gloriel’s little angels, did so inside of Janna St Peche-Montressor (q.v.), a love-loving Afrite as well as an Athenan War Witch, who was APM’s most frequent host-shell in 5980;

— Rufous Rudra Silvercloud, Bodiless Byron’s only 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;
- involved in the Byronic ploy at the beginning of Tantalar 5980 that saw Apple Isle’s devic Dand Plathon (the Bull of Mithras, a third-born Mithradite), the Devil Child Tralalorn (from Mithras’s Ninth), the Ghostlands’ King Harvest (a fifth-born), the Flood Lands’ Klizarod Rex (from Mithras’s Seventh) and, among others, the Lakelands’ colourful Emperor Chameleon (also a seventh-born) humiliated and nearly ill-starred;
- as of the 6th of Tantalar, along with Uma, the eldest surviving Byronic on the Hidden Headworld;
- after events detailed in Helmoon one of the last three highborn Byronics;

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;
- in the absence of Devil Wind (Vayu Maelstrom, one of Byron’s Primary Nucleoids) freed from All of Incain at the beginning of Tantalar 5980;
- immediately thereafter became involved in the Byronic ploy that saw Apple Isle’s Devil Child Tralalorn, the Ghostlands’ King Harvest, and, among others, the Flood Lands’ Klizarod Rex humiliated and nearly ill-starred (cathonitized);
- like Methandra Thanatos and Freespirit Nihila barely survived Gambit;
- as of the 6th of Tantalar, along with triplet-husband Rufous Rudra, the eldest surviving Byronic on the Hidden Headworld;

Deneb Makara, one of Great Byron’s Winder Zodiacals, Capricorn the Goatfish;
- the recurring deviant, Pusan Wanderlust, who always comes back in one of her daughters or granddaughters, claims Makara was her devic half-mother;
- others argue that Goatfish committed devic suicide by cutting out her third eye during the time of the Goddess Culture on the Outer Earth ca 2000 to 2500 YD (2000 to 1500 BC) and that therefore Pusan is what’s become of her (in much the same way Rumour of Lazareme became Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys);
- Makara’s Tvasitar talisman or power focus is a pedum, which is akin to a bishop’s crosier or a fairy godmother’s shepherd’s crook; it comes back to Pusan whenever and wherever she reincarnates;

Malar Tzigame, Byron’s Butterfly;
- odds on favourite to be the devic half-mother of Akbar and Meroudys Artha while being possessed by the Temporis Faerie Queen known as Cabala (Dand Tariqartha would have be occupying Faerie King Archon);
- in early Tantalar 5980 among those involved in the Byronic ploy in the borderlands between the Flood and Lakelands (Sedon’s Sweat Glands) that almost led to the cathonitization of the Ghostlands’ King Harvest and also saw the Devil Child Tralalorn devolve the Lake Lands’ Emperor Chameleon;

Pyçonja Volant, another of Great Byron’s Winter Zodiacals, Pisces the Fish;
- odds on favourite to have been Fisherwoman’s devic half-mother because when the newborn Fish (Scylla Nereid, Lady Achigan now, but once the marital Queen of Godbad) was found by Aortic Merthetis, Volant’s Tvasitar talisman or power focus, a Fisher’s Gaffe, was found beside her;
- prior to and during Fish’s Godbadian Queenship, its air force was known as the Royal Byronic Volant in her honour;
- if she was Fish’s devic half-mother then she must have been humanizing Miracle Memory, the Female Entity, when Fish was conceived in 5917/18;

========

  • More Lazaremists

Irisiel Mercherm, Lazareme’s preferred Heliodromus or sun-runner;
- called Speedy by devils for reasons irrefutable; as such the only Master Deva who can get into and out of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon unimpeded, let alone captured in a Trinondev’s eyeorb or prison pod;
- in common with other, usually fairly low-born sun-runners like her brother in Lazareme, Djinn-Ghoster, and Djinn Domitian (Mithras’s Leontocephalic Trumpeter), both from Feel Theo, she seems able to enter Cathonia, the domain of Dark Star Sedon;

Krepusyl Evenstar, Lazareme’s second-born Venus,
- once Mariamne Dawnstar, she of Daybreak; 800-years currently the Devic Dand of Crepuscule, Sedon’s Outer Nose, the Land of Twilight;
- triplet sister of Flowery Anthea (Lazareme’s Spring) and Titanic Metis (Metisophia, Wisdom of Lazareme), both of whom are mentioned in the mini-novel;
- presumed to be Wilderwitch’s half-mother from when she was humanizing Miracle Memory in the mid-Twenties;
- also presumed to be Tsishah Twilight’s devic half-mother from when she was possessing Morgianna born Nauroz, but by then Somata (a hybrid Utopian who later became Superior Sarpedon on the Outer Earth and the Inner Earth Hellions’ Morrigan), in the early Thirties
- also known as the Grey Lady and Miss Mist, the inspiration behind the Witch’s bedtime tale of Miss Murk (also Murk Mist), Mad for Mud Magpies (Mudpies);

Amal-Althea Brand, Lazareme’s long missing, goatish Female Healer; previously seen in Feel Theo;
- Mel-Illuminatus appears to have her power focus, a caduceus, which Mel pretends is actually akin to the gargoyles Utopian Trinondevs manifest off their eye-staves in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon;
- Mel claims she acquired it from the Olympian Tantalus in the Forties on the Outer Earth, which is possible, but there’s plenty of speculation that while, as a pureblood Utopian she can’t be possessed, as a Summoning Child she may have been born with Althea Brand inside her the same as Barsine Mandam was born with Nergal Vetala inside her;

— Unholy Abaddon (the Unity of Chaos), Thunder and Lightning Lord Yajur (the Unity of Order), Tvasitar Smithmonger, the devic Prometheus (Anvil Artificer, Master Craftsman), Mandorla Auricaura (Bright Enlightenment of Lazareme, another possible devic half-mother of Fisherwoman because Fish’s bellybutton bauble is Mandorla’s power focus, a Vesica Piscis) and Battle Babe (the Morrigu Badhbh) – whose loyal forces are in the process of taking over Hadd’s western neighbour New Valhalla (the Bloodlands, Sedon’s Inner Earth), home of the Sangazur Glorious Dead, many of whose devic mother she is by Mars Bellona, the Apocalyptic of War – are among the other Lazaremists who are either mentioned or appear, howsoever briefly, in the mini-novel;

========

  • More Byronics

Chimaera Glimmenmare (Byron’s Stallion), along with triplet siblings, (Smoky) Sedona Spellbinder and Devil Wind (the Whirling Deva, aka Vayu Maelstrom), are Byron’s Primary Nucleoids; Draconic Yati, Byron’s Dragon (beware his burps), was last seen in Helmoon devouring Sharkczar;

========

  • More Mithradites

Phantast Thanatos, the third of the firstborn Thanatoid Death Gods; called Dream or Dreamweaver by devils;
- cathonitized circa 4000 YD (Year 0 AD) 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);
- decathonitized on the 30th of Maruta 5980, so presumably possessing a cosmicompanion in an as yet unidentified cosmicar somewhere beyond Cathonia;
- may already be influencing events on the Hidden Headworld; certainly both Wilderwitch and Saladin Devason are experiencing very disturbing dreams during the course of the mini-novel;

— Sinistral Sloth, Domdaniel-Pride and most of the other former or eventual Prime Sinistrals of Satanwyck and their Grand Vizier, Chancellor Ibal, are mentioned, usually by name, during the course of the mini-novel;

Pyrame Silverstar, the Pauper Priestess, the fabulously female (adult) Perpetual Presence; formerly (sometimes) called Providence, among many another name or title;
- decathonitized on the 30th of Maruta 5980, was possessing Cosmicaptain Nehrini Purandar in the cosmicar that crash-landed in Satanwyck (Sedon’s Temple, Hell on Earth, then currently the domain of Sinistral Sloth);
- 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;
- had no need of a devic power and daemonic body in 2000 YD (because she was already a solid entity, having been fused with her daemon while imprisoned pre-Dome in one of the Sphinxes and becoming Sed-mom shortly after her release ca 0 YD) when Anvil the Artificer first discovered how to render Master Deva individually solid and powerful entities;
- due to her lack of a power focus, for centuries after Anvil began making them Pyrame relied on her relationship with the recurring Attis to get hold power foci (he would give the foci of vanquished foes to her as tokens of her affection); however, as per Feel Theo she had to give them up on Thrygragon (Mithramas Day 4376 YD) and thereafter had to rely on Sedon, All or a variety of psychopomp demons to get about beneath the Dome;
- for reasons not fully explained in the mini-novel, she was cathonitized in 5950; that suggests she somehow lost her formerly (and perhaps still, at least partially) be-brained, daemonic body, disputably that of Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night, much like she did in 4824 YD when, as per Hellion, they were jointly occupying Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of Weir;
-  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);
- some believe she was the devic half-mother of Meroudys and Akbar Artha near the beginning of the Cathonic Dome’s 59th Century (it’s now late in the Dome’s 60th Century), though that was more likely Byron’s Butterfly;

Tralalorn (White Dwarf, the child devil who along with Pyrame Silverstar and the Moloch counts herself one of the Hidden Headworld’s three Perpetual Presences), her brood sister Cathune ‘Apocalyptic of Drought’ Bubastis, Diluvia ‘Flood’ Ran, Mars ‘War’ Bellona, Mater ‘Mother Murder’ or ‘Mundane Death’ Matare and their fourth generational ‘Quadrang’ daughter, Flying Doltaur, are also mentioned in flashback during the mini-novel;

4. Demons, Faeries, Deviants and Mandroid Monstrosities

  • Demons

Soulless, often nearly brainless, chthonic creatures also known as eldritch earthborn and Indescribables. (Similarly spelled daemons {meaning ‘spirit’ or ‘deity’} are generally less antagonistic to humans.) The Mantel replicates of Temporis are related to demons, as are the capricious but much more intelligent faeries of Crepuscule, the Land of Twilight (Sedon's Outer Nose), and those of Subcranial Temporis itself (notably Archon and Cabala, their king and queen).

To this day (5980), certain highly skilled witches and rogue Utopian biomages can manufacture demons by using tellurian raw material found in the Hell-Well of the World, which underlies most of the Upper Head. (Some of these rogue Utopians, usually hailing from the former Weirdom of Samarand, once Sedon’s Tongue Stud, nowadays dwell on Shenon, Witch Isle, where they are protected by the Panharmonium-supporting Aortics Amphitrite of Lemuria and Tsishah Twilight.)

Although mostly confined to Satanwyck and the Forbidden Forest of Kala Tal (whence Hadd’s Indescribables), they can be found throughout the Hidden Headworld. Much feared, omnivorous walking appetites, contrary to many traditions they are notoriously flammable. As the Morrigan, Morgianna born Nauroz (Morg, Superior Sarpedon) was able to compel them to do as she desired.

Demons come in all shapes and sizes, with a wide of variety of so-called magical or supernatural abilities. Morrigan Morg wore a teleportive demon she brought back from Satanwyck prior to the final battle for by then Diminished Dustmound. Psychopomps are likewise empowered and therefore may be at least part demon.

Primeval Lilith What happens to Wilderwitch once Primeval Lilith gets hold of her, shot taken in Belgium, 2012
- the Demon Queen of the Night, sometimes called Lethal Lily;
- ageless, apparently both immortal and unkillable, partial mother of the Sed-sons (sedons, small case) on both sides of the Dome;
- arguably the source of Pyrame’s Earth-long hold over the Moloch Sedon;
- apparently Machine-Memory got hold of her during the events of 5950 (the Challenge of Weir, also the Siege of Cabalarkon) but expelled her on the Moon (thirty years and ninety odd lifetimes later) while thinking she was Erebe Thanatos (Dame Darkness) from a future lifetime;

Daemonicus, the long time, pre-Flood King of Demons (Dark Sedon is the current King of Demons; has been for well over six thousand years);
- evidently as ageless and immortal as his forever mate Lilith;
- seems to be just a wearable body these days, with no mind left;
- when last seen, during Nuke, Solomon 'Boom-Boom' Mandam was wearing him;
- people who wear Daemonicus, such as Judge Warlock, tend to speak like this;

Faceless Strife
- probably not a demon; more likely what’s left of Marut Kanin (Fitna Marutia, Kore-Discord), a second-born Apple Goddess, known in legend (as well as, most notably, Feel Theo) as Mithras’s Ewe for Aries;
- Balkis (Faerie Flight) Mandam, Solomon’s twin sister, was occupied by Faceless Strife throughout much of Nuke;
- witches regard Strife as a sentient virus; as per War-Pox, she’s why Wilderwitch refused to carry anyone through the Weird in the aftermath of Damnation Isle on the 30th of November 1980;
- Harmony thought she’d disposed of her, Strife, ca 4000 YD in the Brainrock cauldron of Sedon’s Peak;
- as per Helmoon, Miracle Maenad reckons she’s disposed of her inside Sainted Sophia (born St Synne, Cybele’s presumed sister, D-Brig’s Gloriel D’Angelo Dark’s Mama Sofa) at least temporarily on the 9th of December 1980;

Shahiyeda, the first child born of Solace born Sunrise (Sorciere); father: D-Brig’s John (Blind) Sundown;
- born in 5934 on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head, Blind Sundown may not know of her existence (let alone her ‘survival’) until 5980, if then;
- an apparent Outer Earth supranormal turned into a demon at some point; all indications are that, even as a demon, she retains some of her brain and her main supra talent, an ability to bite back vampirism;
- Tsishah Twilight currently wears said Shah-Demon; seems to have since events that took place in 5860 of the Dome;

========

  • 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.

Fisherwoman (Fish), amphibious Piscine born sometime in 5918;
- as a newborn, found in the Belly of the Beast (Island Leviathan) by Aortic Merthetis who gave her the name Scylla Nereid;
- tends to fishify, a form of not always rhyming or alliterative fay-saying that often makes her difficult to understand;
- something of a breeder, first child (Wave or Winifred) born in 5934 and raised by Godbadian Royal Family (the House of the Crimson Gold) because they believe her father was Achigan Auranja, a Summoning Child;
– Achigan, 5980-nowadays the sitting Duke of Achigon (sic), Sedon's Lower Lip-tip, in the north-easternmost corner of the subcontinent of Aka Godbad, was therefore only 13 when Fish conceived Wave-Winifred, but already the nominal King of Godbad;
- because of their child, Fish married King Achigan prior to Master Kyprian, the then Master of Weir and Whole Earth’s Anthean Superior, taking over her training when she was sixteen;
- eventually learns that her parents were Ulysses Heliopolis and Miracle Maenad, who was seemingly possessing three Master Devas simultaneously (Pyçonja Volant, Diluvia Ran and Mandorla Auricaura);
- if so, then this explains the three devic power foci Merthetis found beside her in the Belly of the Beast: a fisher’s gaffe (Byron’s Pisces), a gill-net (Mithras’s Apocalyptic of Flood) and her bellybutton bauble (a Vesica Piscis formerly belonging to Lazareme’s Bright Light Enlightenment);
- in 5950 became Master Kyprian’s champion such that she could compete in that year’s Challenge of Weir on her behalf; resigned her role when Kyprian died under the usual mysterious circumstances;
- despite their former enmity, seemingly became ‘involved’ with Saladin Devason in 5960; may have had a son as a result, someone she called, typically fishily, ‘Sal-man’ (as in salmon);
- in 5980 known as Lady Achigan since she and her husband, Godbad’s reigning King and marital Queen, were deposed during the Godbadian Civil War in the vicinity of twenty years earlier;
- briefly fused with Freespirit Nihila during Gambit;
- has a self-made daemonic psychopomp (spirit carrier) she calls Ronnie Ray-Bum, after the then still incoming POTUS; others call it Eel Ray Revenant;

Saladin born Nauroz called Devason;
- Master of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon as of 5950 YD, when he beat Golgotha Nauroz (a clone), Demios Sarpedon (disqualified for being a year too young) and Fisherwoman (Scylla Nereid) in that year’s Challenge of Weir;
- as per in 2012’s Gambit, humiliated on not-yet-diminished Dustmound in Hadd on the 7th of Tantalar by niece Andaemyn (‘Without Demon) Sarpedon; rescued by Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys (the Legendarian, conceivably once Rumour of Lazareme);
- first depicted in 1980’s Phantacea Six; mother Pandora ‘Hush’ Mannering and father Augustus Nauroz (as the devil-transformed faerie tricksters, Young Life & Young Death) appeared in Sister-Grandmother, a short story published in 4Ever40;
- has an abiding hatred of witches;
- presumed devic half-mother: Pyrame Silverstar; presumed devic half-father: none other than the Moloch Sedon himself;
- (arguably) the last Sed-son or sedon, small case, left alive beneath the Cathonic Dome (equally arguably, Sedon St Synne is the last living sedon beyond the Dome);

Morgianna (Morg) born Nauroz become Somata then Sarpedon, an Inner Earth Summoning Child, Saladin Devason’s year-younger sister;
- apparently killed in Hadd by John Sundown during the final battle between the Living and the Dead on by then Drenched Dustmound; when last seen in Helmoon was somehow forming a cocoon around her evident corpse;
- probable devic half-mother: Pyrame Silverstar;
- mother Pandora ‘Hush’ Mannering and father Augustus Nauroz (as the devil-transformed faerie tricksters, Young Life & Young Death) appeared in Sister-Grandmother, a short story published in 4Ever40;
- husband: Demios; mother of Andaemyn by Demios; mother of Tsishah Twilight by the blue-skinned, faerie-human hybrid, Tom-Tiddly Tattletale (think both Lazareme and the Male Entity) born Tammuz Rhymer of Dukkha;
- codenamed the White Witch on the Outer Earth; called Superior Sarpedon by Wilderwitch (who seemingly distrusts her intensely) during War-Pox;
- the Hecate-Hellion’s Morrigan, an Anthean Nightingale and the Athenan War Witches’ acting Mother Superior after daughter Tsishah left Shenon on the Spring Equinox of 5980;

Pusan Wanderlust, the trail-blazing Traveller,
- the fauna or female satyr who runs the DDD (the Dinq, Doinq, Danq Cavern Tavern) on the far, north-eastern slopes of the Diluvia Mountain Range;
- a recurring deviant who’s been coming back as one of her daughters or granddaughters since the time of the Outer Earth’s Goddess Culture ca 2000 to 1500 BC (2000 to 2500 YD);
- some claim the long missing Byronic Goatfish (Deneb Makara, a Winter Zodiacal) was her devic half-mother;
- others argue that Goatfish committed devic suicide by cutting out her third eye and that therefore Pusan is what’s become of her since;
- Makara’s Tvasitar talisman or power focus is a pedum, which is akin to a bishop’s crosier or a fairy godmother’s shepherd’s crook; it comes back to Pusan whenever and wherever she reincarnates;
- nevertheless, many – including Pusan herself – hold that her devic half-mom was Amal-Althea, the notoriously randy Lazaremist healer associated with Mel-Illuminatus;
- in this scenario the earliest recurring deviant, Taurus Chrysaor Attis (last seen in Feel Theo), was her father and gave her Makara’s power focus as a birthday gift;
- a long time associate of Tsishah Twilight and her mother, Superior Sarpedon;
- as such, heavily involved in the witches’ Panharmonium project that resulted, on the Outer Earth, in Kamikaze Kaligula and the apparent destruction of the Cosmic Express on the 30th of November 1980 (story mostly told in Nuke);

Lakshmi of Lemuria, called Arthadot due to the fact she’s Dand Tariqartha’s half-daughter;
- born on the 5th of Tantalar, Year of the Dome 5962, in Goddess Culture Temporis, wherein her crabby mother, then only short time Aortic, Amphitrite (Lady Lemurian), was masquerading as her namesake, the demigod Amphitrite, and Dand Tariqartha was playing at being trident-wielding Poseidon;
- was scheduled to be married to her quarter cousin, eventual Senator Sophiscient, Akbarartha’s son by the Lady Takeda Mikoto, on the 6th;
- once the Awesome Akbar (OMP, Old Man Power, an Outer Earth supra), still thinking himself Obadiah Melvin Power, a high level Outer Earth Xuthrodite, showed up on her 18th birthday, she peremptorily dumped his son and, on Tariqartha’s insistence, became engaged to marry him instead;
- when their half-father self-cathonitized on the 6th, Lakshmi gained his mutable power focus (Power Sceptre, similar in appearance to Akbar’s Homeworld Sceptre) and expelled what was left of the Damnation Brigade, including betrothed Akbarartha, its by then rightful Kronokronos Supreme, from Temporis;
- secretly in love with someone other than Sophiscient or Akbar;
- because of Tariqartha’s genetic strength looks more human than Lemurian, though still has gills behind her ears and slightly scaly skin;
- wears a shape-shifting guard body and carries Tariqartha’s Power Sceptre while acting as Temporis’s Kronokronos Supreme;

Eden Nightingale, believed dead since 5955;
- Fish and the Witch’s sister in the Dual Entities, born in 5909; as such, one of the Trigon Triplets, who were believed to be incarnations of the three Great Goddesses (Trigregos Demeter, Trigregos Sapiendev and Trigregos Devaura);
- mother, by her then husband Loxus Abraham Ryne (the Great Man, the Outer Earth Xuthrodites’ now 80-year old patriarch), of Aranyani Nightingale (who was born on the same day as Gloriella D’Angelo, Good Friday, April 14, 1933) and her older brothers, the twins David (D-Brig’s Cyborg Cerebrus) and Saul (Magnifico, the Magnificent Psycho), who were born four years earlier, in 1929;

Tsishah Twilight, born September 1934;
- devic half-mother: Krepusyl Evenstar, presumed therefore to be Wilderwitch’s quarter-sister;
- mother: Morgianna then Somata, eventually Sarpedon; father: Tammuz Rhymer of Dukkha, by then a blue-skinned faerie type known as Tom-Tiddly Tattletale;
- mother of a number of children by Jester Jaguar (Mani-Balam, probably Solace Sunrise’s twin brother by Shaman Manitoulin and Lamia Louise St Synne, which technically should make him Miracle Maenad’s half-brother);
- in Tantalar 5980 the still acting, non-Lemurian Aortic or Quarter Queen of Shenon (Witch Isle); due to (finally) retire come the Spring Equinox, which in many parts of the Hidden Headworld is celebrated as its New Years Day;

Jesus ‘Jesse’ Mandam, the King Conqueror, the Conquering Christ, but probably not the otherwise never identified (‘Bolder-Brain’) Conqueror;
- believed to be, by a matter of seconds, the first Summoning Child born on either side of the Cathonic Dome (just after midnight Christmas Day 1920 on the Outer Earth, Mithramas on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head;
- son of Magister Joseph ‘Old Joe’ Mandam and Mary Magdalene born Ryne; brought up as the twin brother of Barsine (Vetala) eventually Holgat-wife even though he didn't look like her;
- early on (immediately pre-Suprawar, in the late 1930s) declared himself the Saviour of Supranormalkind;
- known as Wiccan Warlock on the Inner Earth; as such, incorrectly assumed to be the son of Judge Warlock (Sedon St Synne, who wore the Daemonicus shell while on the Hidden Headworld);
- a great friend of Saladin Devason during the very late Thirties and throughout the Forties; evidently stole all his advanced technology from the Weirdom of Cabalarkon during this time;
- unstated in Nuke, but strongly suggested in both Helmoon and DecDam, much of the tech used by New Century Enterprises, to build the Cosmic Express, and by WORLD, to counter it with Kamikaze Kaligula, Crystallion, Hell’s Horsemen and their Nuclear Dragons, was derived from Jesse’s notes, as kept in the Soviet Supracity throughout the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies;
- killed when Blind Sundown and Raven’s Head dropped a prototype Soviet Hydrogen Bomb atop him on Salvation Island on his 33rd birthday in 1953;

Legendarian (Jordan ‘Q for Quill’ Tethys, devic half-father: Rumour of Lazareme, devic half-mother: Metisophia, Wisdom of Lazareme), Miracle Maenad (Cybele St Synne, born 5909, a Trigon Triplet, grandmother of Solomon and Balkis Mandam) and Human Memory (Mnemosyne D’Angelo Heliopolis, the third Trigon Triplet, might be Ventricular Telepassa of Godbad’s mother) are among the definite deviants mentioned in the mini-novel;

========

  • 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;
- as per the “Janna Fangfingers” (Fangers) mini-novel, in the subcontinent of Aka Godbad (starting in the province of New Iraxas, Godbad’s huge but thoroughly polluted oil field) went by the name Reilly Haddeus, an Irache rabble-rouser, before true identity revealed;

Night Owl, otherwise unnamed (Lamechlan?), 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;

========

  • Mandroids

All the (self-proclaimed) Invincible She-Sphinx of Incain; as per Feel Theo, once Ginny the Gynosphinx;
- based on Weir’s original Mother Machine and made, long pre-Dome, by Machine-Memory to capture daemons; can also eat and therefore imprison Master Devas;
- Mandroid Mother Machine as well as occasional monster maker;
- more often than not appears as a huge and winged griffin type; 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 (q.v.);
- 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 (q.v.);
- composed of the multitude of Master Devas still imprisoned within All either Fangers-recently or over the course of her millennia-long existence.

5. 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 completely cognizant 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, Samarand (Sedon’s Tongue Stud), the Gleaming City of Manoa (Hadd’s Necropolis, Fangfingers’ Capital), and the five hundred years ruined Kanin City, in the vast Plains of Marutia near the Gregarian Fields (Sedon’s Mole);
- often act as advisors to the reigning Master, who was often elevated from their rank (Quoits Tethys, Melina born Tethys Somata and Kyprian Somata were all once High Illuminaries of Weir); very seldom are they not pure U-bloods;
- 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, nowadays mostly clones but formerly almost always purebloods who managed to overcome 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;
- eyeorbs supposedly work on demons, too, though being so flammable they're easier to kill;
- 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, Sraddha or Janna Somata;
- since Saladin Devason began his reign as Master in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon in 5950, its Trinondevs are exclusively male;

Utopian Development Teams, surrogate parents charged with raising non-born clones as well a difficult natural born children like the Master's felt-entitled kids and those born of Outer Earth 'imports';

Cabalarkon, Cabby the Daddy, the Undying Utopian; a biogeneticist when he lived and worked on, or travelled off of, the First Weirworld ca 200,000 light years earlier;
- 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; as such is probably the oldest, continuously alive mortal in the entire cosmos;
- 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 born Sarpedon become Zeross, twin sister of Demios; may have been named after the Trigregos Titaness of the Dome’s 55th Century (Melina born Tethys Somata from “Contagion Collectors” {Contagion});
- a Utopian pureblood, an Inner Earth Summoning Child like twin brother Demios and Morgianna by then Somata, who first came to the Outer Earth in 1938 and attended the first Amsterdam Academy of Man until it closed with the outbreak of war;
- there, on the Outer Earth during its Secret War (or Wars) in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties, codenamed Illuminatus;
- became the High Illuminary of Weir (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 (born in 1943) of three daughters: Persephone, Helen and Athena, all of whom appear in Gambit, Helmoon and DecDam);
- 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;
- pure U-Blood Summoning Child who first came to the Outer Earth in 1938, along with twin sister Melina; there served under the clone Golgotha Nauroz as a bodyguard for eventual wife Morgianna;
- there also, during its Suprawar (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;
- 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;

Capputis, teenage, apparent clone with an overlarge head (hydrocephalus), scaly skin and gills behind his ears
- claims to have been bred amphibious deliberately so as to become Weir’s ambassador to the Hidden Headworld’s mostly Akadan-based, undersea realms, who tend to be anti-Godbadian;

6. Norman & Norma Notables

  • Inner Earthlings

Alpha Centauri, called the Fatman for reasons immediately apparent to  anyone who sees him;
- founder, in 5945, and to-this-day head of Centauri Enterprises, the de facto corporate 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, at the tip of the Penile Peninsula, and on the coast of the Inner Ocean of Akadan 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;
- reputedly the only way he survived being so massively overweight for so long is because he was 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;
- since, at the outset of the mini-novel, Bodiless Byron is now a (very bright) star in the night’s sky above the Hidden Headworld this is no longer possible;

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 until All of Incain destroyed his living quarters he lived in same Outer-Earth-modern building that houses the headquarters of Centauri Enterprises;

Achigan Auranja, hereditary head of the Royal House of the Crimson Orange;
- 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;
-  in 5980, lives in exile on Godbad’s far, north-westernmost shore: namely, the lip-tip-principality of Achigon (with an ‘o’, not an ‘a’, though probably named after a member of his royal family);
- Byronics invited his royal forbearers to Godbad proper, from their ancestral homeland in the Cattail highlands, at an unspecified time in the past (probably some time 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);

Gomez Niarchos, Godbad’s dead, but Sangazur-animated ambassador to the Bloodlands (New, Valhalla, Sedon’s Inner Nose);
- a friend of the Legendarian, albeit from earlier incarnations, Gomez is charged with negotiating the neutrality of Bloodlanders (Valhallans, the Glorious Dead of Feel Theo, all of whom are dead and, after the elimination of both Guardian Angel Tyrtod and an imbecilic Apocalyptic of War, leaderless;
- 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 mentioned in the mini-novel include Holgat Sraddha Anvilson and Barsine born Mandam Holgat-wife (both of whom were Summoning Children) as well as their son, Thartarre Sraddha Holgatson, the current High Priest of the Brown-Robed Sraddhites, Godbadian General Quentin Anvil, Senator Sophiscient, Telepassa of Godbad & her four daughters (Ino, Agave + Autonoe, who are triplets, and the youngest Semele);

— Among generally non-Head, presumed mortals mentioned in the mini-novel include Angelo & Aristotle Harry Zeross (father and son Ringleaders), Harry’s mother Megaera (Hellion Grudge, the second Olympian), Harry’s brother Demonites (the third Olympian), Alpha Centauri’s son Yataghan (Sentalli) Montressor, Eden Ryne’s daughter Aranyani Nightingale and Wilderwitch’ daughter Fey Woman.

Wilderwitch's Babies 1 -- Decimation Damnation

| Full cover for Print Version | Rejected Print Cover | Possible Digital Cover || Babies poster | Demon Devils | Magdalena Witch | Fearsome Soul-self | Mel-Illuminatus | 2004 Cover Collage | Additional Graphics inspired by the mini-novel |

Final cover collage for the print edition of "Decimation Damnation"

Final full cover for Decimation Damnation, cover collage and text by Jim McPherson, 2016

DecDam is the first mini-novel extracted from the open-ended saga of 'Wilderwitch's Babies'. "Destination Damnation" and "Tsishah's Twilight" are scheduled to follow within the next year or so.

That may change of course. What won't change are the main characters. And, while the sunset in background may be suggestive of Blind Sundown, the book is not entitled 'Sunset for Sundown'.

He is, as per here, only one of the ten original members of the Damnation Brigade. In other words, like the face-dancing Witch and Raven's Head, who do appear on the final cover, he's due -- overdue, according to too many -- for decimation.

Daemonic Desperation

Promo collage entitled Daemonic Desperation

There's a reason Wilderwitch remains alive long enough to get pregnant. There's a reason her soul-self does too; making that two (pregnancies).

Has to do the hooded thought-widow the still recovering Demios Sarpedon spots on what he subsequently should have started calling Demon Mound.

Rejected print cover for "Decimation Damnation"

Probable print cover for Decimation Damnation

For a time this collage became Plan B, replacing the mini-novel's first choice cover, below. It was initially intended for "Destination Damnation -- Wilderwitch's Babies 2".

The POD company said the blacks were too black. Said the same thing about the cover that instead became the face of the digital editions of the mini-novel.

Raven's Head also counts as one of D-Brig's original members. She doesn't telescope out her unicorn horn due to an absence of devils, other than the Devil, in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon.

Probable Front Cover for digital edition

Probably Front Cover for digital edition

Wilderwitch is a face-dancer. That means she can alter her appearance by mentally manipulating her external aura; not that her face dances as such, or that a skeletal revenant replaces her mouth.

She should have been killed in Temporis near the end of "The War of the Apocalyptics" (War-Pox). She wasn't. She should have at least lost a leg. She didn't.

And that's about it for the good news.

Probable spread for digital editions of "Decimation Damnation"

Probable cover for digital edition of "Decimation Damnation"

Two of D-Brig's members have already been decimated, as in deducted from the original roll-call of ten strong. Appearances to the contrary, one of them is not Cyborg Cerebrus, their erstwhile leader and the fellow who so ill-advisedly named them thusly.

Neither are they the Untouchable Diver and Ringleader, an honourary member since rescuing what was left of D-Brig in Sisert and taking them to 'safety' in the Weirdom of Cabalarkon, aka Sedon's Eye-Land.

The already lost two, the Elemental Twins, reputedly have a distant sister, the Mirror Mentalist. She's an immortal azura. Rather, she thinks she is ... immortal, that is.

Babies' overall main page is here. Character Companion for the mini-novel is here. There are entries re Ringleader and the Weirdom of Cabalarkon on pH-Webworld.

 

Images for cover collages

Gif presenting images on front cover

Wilderwitch already has one child, Fey Woman. She's bodily older than her mother. Seems further that D-Brig weren't the only ones Demon Land brought back from Limbo on the 30th of November 1980 on D-Isle.

As per War-Pox and "Nuclear Dragons", that one is didn't come back whole, however. The Witch is his aunt. She's hardly the only one who reckons him long overdue for decimation.

One of those last isn't her daughter. Even more worryingly Fey can bodily traverse the Weird; can even get through the Cathonic Dome.

The Conqueror Worm

Conqueror Worm, shot by Jim McPherson on Isla Mujeres, 2013

Sinistral Gluttony does not appear in "Decimation Damnation"; put better, he probably doesn't; he may have been decathonitized, however, and there is a character at least superficially reminiscent of the 'Boulder-Brain' Conqueror in it.

Collage suggestive of the open-ended saga of 'Wilderwitch's Babies', the first mini-novel extracted from it being 2016's "Decimation Damnation" (DecDam).

At the min-novel's outset she's only had one; after everything she went through in "The War of the Apocalyptics" and "The Damnation Brigade" graphic novel, she's also very lucky to be alive.

Animals like Wilderwitch

Photo featuring a young woman surrounded by small animals, suggestive of Wilderwitch, taken by Jim McPherson, 2015

She likes them, too; apparently she likes having babies as well; doesn't eat them, though. (Wilderwitch is nevertheless a very bad witch; unlike her fellow D-Brig member Gloriel born D'Angelo Dark, she's not always a vegetarian.)

Flowery Anthea, Lazareme's Epitome of Spring

Flowery face with 3 eyes, photo by Jim McPherson, Mexico 2014

While Wilderwitch isn't much of a supranormal compared to the rest of the Damnation Brigade, she was born with the ability to do almost everything most witches take decades to learn and master.

Nominally she belongs the Antediluvian Sisterhood of Flowery Anthea. Antheans, however, claim they were named after the otherwise never named wife of the Biblical Noah (Xuthros Hor) and not a devil.

Primeval Lilith is not Katrina

Sugarcube skull shot in a Vancouver restaurant during the Week of the Dead, 2015, by Jim McPherson

Warning: Spoiler ahead

The word 'decimate' originally referred to the killing of every tenth person, a punishment used in the Roman army for mutinous legions.

Today this meaning is commonly extended to include the killing of any large proportion of a population. Not so in the Phantacea Mythos.

By the end of "Decimation Damnation" it's more likely that, of the original ten members of D-Brig (eleven, counting Ringleader), only the Witch will be left standing. And her only because of Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night

Wilderwitch is happiest in the wilderness

Tapistry featuring a forest growing out of a  witch's head, shot at the 2015 Vancouver Folk Festival

In the Phantacea Mythos be-brained demons cannot possess anyone. What they do is coat someone and then more like seep into their victim until they're either in control or as close as they can get in strong-willed people.

Might this be why the Witch appears on her feet a few times as "Decimation Damnation" progresses? And might that demon have a name?

Wilderwitch has her very own phantasm

Phantasm by Walter Molino, Italian illustrator, image taken from Web

As one might imagine, events detailed in both War-Pox and the D-Brig graphic novel, left Wilderwitch not only barely alive but severely traumatized.

Fortunately her fearsome soul self has mostly recovered from what Blind Sundown did to it on Damnation Isle in the first week of December 1980.

Image is by Walter Molino, an Italian illustrator (1915-1997), who was a true master of mayhew. Another candidate for said fearsomeness shows up in the middle of the next row down.

Cyborg Cerebrus's Aunt was a Magdalena

Window shot of theatre near Munich, Germany, featuring shot of Magdalena

Jim McPherson's Phantacea Mythos has a character by the name of Mary Magdalene born Ryne. She was the mother (albeit only of record) of the twins, Jesus and Barsine Mandam, the first Summoning Children ever born by a matter of minutes.

One of them became Nergal Vetala, from "Goddess Gambit". The other became the Conquering Christ. Among many another, Blind Sundown and Raven's Head killed the latter on Salvation Island, in the Outer Earth's South Seas, on their thirty-third birthday. (Sundown's, too, as it happened.) It's an event that resonates throughout "Wilderwitch's Babies".

The picture was take in 2010 while looking for Fairy Castles in a town outside of Munich. It (presumably) shows a then-current Magdalena, as well as number of previous ones.

Can't recall details but suspect they were in a play put on every year to celebrate German Holy Week, possibly going back centuries.

"Humping hoolies, Harry lad"

Walter Molino illustration of the hula hoop craze in the 1950/60s

No, the Diver doesn't say this to Ringleader in "Decimation Damnation". He will, though, eventually, as part of its back story.

Yes, Rings (Harry Zeross) is back, from the Moon, and altogether the worse for wear. D-Brig welcome him as one of their own.

What's the mini-novel's title again? Guess who counts as among those decimated?

What are you getting us into, Witchie?

Spooky, black-eyed girl scanned in from Fortean Times by Jim McPherson, 2015

Wilderwitch only has one child as of Tantalar 5980; come September 5981 that may change.

However, as suggested a couple of rows up and two columns over, there is a small matter of what, as much as who, might be keeping her going until then.

Wilderwitch's Fearsome Soul Self

Image called Ghost Witch, taken from Web, 2016

What if it's the Witch's soul-self that gets pregnant, not her? What if they're both pregnant? What if there are two?

Guess that's why the whole, thus far open-ended saga's entitled "Wilderwitch's Babies".

Spooky image, taken from blumhouse.com ("The 10 Most Terrifying Native American Legends"), is actually called 'Ghost Witch'. More of its kin are used here.

Is that the Witch's metallic marigold?

Flower face painting shot in Mexico, 2015

Look more like roses than marigolds but I'm no gardener. Mel-Illuminatus does give the Witch a stunted eye-stave for protection. She renders her seemingly obligatory gargoyle a marigold with tentacular petals.

Being a face-dancer, the Witch does go all White Goddess on everyone during DecDam. But is there a hint of a demon is that flower face, which was shot in Mexico in 2013?

The High Illuminary of Weir

Collage suggestive of Cabby Caddy, Mel-Illuminatus, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2016

Melina born Sarpedon Zeross is a Summoning Child who previously appeared the 1938 web-serials, the "Forever & 40 Days -- The Genesis of phantacea" graphic novel and "Helios on the Moon".

She's back big-time in "Wilderwitch's Babies". So are her kids, Persephone (Percy), Helen (Paree) and Athena (Tina). And so is her much younger husband, Aristotle 'Harry' Zeross, the second Ringleader.

An earlier Mel (Melina Zeross Somata) featured in the 1000-Daze mini-novels. The latter day Mel is likely named after her.

Mel-Illuminatus's main entry, with plenty of additional lynx, is on pH-Webworld here.

Mel-Illuminatus with Gargoyle

Picture of a goddes with a caduceus identified as Commerce, taken by Jim McPherson in Australia, 2011

Pureblood female Utopians are always white-as-light whereas male U-Bloods are always black-as-midnight. That's been the case since the Phantacea Mythos began. (Saladin Devason was first depicted in Phantacea Six, 1980.)

Females are often described as ambulatory alabaster, so it was with some delight that I spotted statue, evidently representative of the Goddess of Commerce, in Australia in 2011.

It seemed and seems a perfect stand-in (sit-in?) for Mel-Illuminatus.

Cabby's Caddy

Cabby's Caddy, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2016, features two images taken from the Web of American sculptor James Nathan Muir's Caduceus

Cabby = Cabalarkon, as in the Weirdom thereof; Caddy = Caduceus, as in the gargoyle Mel manifests off her stunted eye-stave.

Except, it may be an actual power focus, a devil's Tvasitar Talisman, and Melina Sarpedon may have been born with the devil it was made for inside her.

(This last in much the same way Barsine Mandam was born with Nergal Vetala inside her whereas Freespirit Nihila once told the Witch she might be her Harmony-self reincarnate.)

"Cabby's Caddy" collage, as prepared by Jim McPherson, 2016, features two images taken from the Web of American sculptor James Nathan Muir's 'Caduceus'. The web page where they came from is here.

Utopians of Weir on Earth

Mythos Caduceus Gargoyles, prepared by Jim McPherson

As told in the 1990 graphic novel entitled "Forever & 40 Days", Utopians of Weir on Earth came from the stars circa Year 10 Pre-Dome

The High Illuminary of Weir

Caduceus Gargoyles on Pink Bg, prepared by Jim McPherson

Mel-Illuminatus (Melina born Sarpedon become Zeross) plays a major role throughout "Wilderwitch's Babies"; as recorded primarily in pH-Webworld, she's a full-blooded Utopian

This graphic, like the two immediately to the left, was prepared for a pH-Webworld entry initially entitled: 'Manifesting Gargoyles'.

There may be no cure for aphantasia (defined as 'having a blind or absent mind's eye') but there certainly is for aphantacea ('a'='without', like the 'an' in 'anheroic')
