  • Beleth - Level 99 | Ruler of Hellbound

The greatest wizard in history, and also the most demonic. Through contact with the forbidden, he gained possession of a mysterious power unknown even to the gods.

    Resurrected from one of the two Seal Stones that emerged from the darkness of the Abyss, Apostle Lilith has begun to carry out Shilen’s orders for a great sacrifice in the material world.
  • Anakim - Level 94 | 9th Daughter of Einhasad

Ensnared by darkness, the feeble-minded angel Anakim now stands on the side of Shilen, her once-enemy. Resurrected from one of the two Seal Stones that emerged from the darkness of the Abyss, the fallen angel has begun to prepare a great sacrifice for Shilen.
