Curse of the Crimson Throne
Belier Devil (Bdellavitra)
Known in some dusty, moldering texts as the Lord of Bloody Quicksands, Sermignatto is an ancient evil indeed. As with many of his fellow devils, his name has another meaning: just as Malacoda means “Bad Tail” and Rubicante means “Red One,” Sermignatto means “Leech Master.” As with most bdellavritra devils, Sermignatto enjoys meddling with the mortals of the Material Plane, and has done so for a very long time. Indeed, his interests in this region date back to Thassilon, where he served for a time at Runelord Sorshen’s side. The bloatmage Togomor is Sermignatto’s latest “project,” a detestable man already consigned to Hell. With a bit more idle guidance, Sermignatto hopes to cultivate Togomor for a particularly painful afterlife by encouraging him to make certain horrific decisions. Encouraging the bloatmage to approach Ileosa to offer her his services as seneschal was Sermignatto’s latest influence, but now the devil is far more entranced by Ileosa herself, seeing in her many parallels with his ancient mistress, Sorshen.
