Patriarch of Onslaught – Priest
Calculated and Deliberate Killers
Harnessing their rage through ritual killing and sacrifice, the Priests of Onslaught view their blood-slicked blades as bringers of nirvana.
In a civilization built entirely around blood, rage, and violence, the Priests of Onslaught are perhaps the most conscious killers. Rather than succumb to the rage that courses through their DNA, they have trained themselves to harness it with slow and calculated movements. Priests of Onslaught are able to remain motionless for days or even weeks, as an internal battle against bloodlust rages within. When they finally spring into action, it is with lightning fast precision. Every motion is exact, graceful, and deadly as they resist the rage’s call to hack madly at their victims. They find great honor in killing with the fewest swings of their blades, as possible.
Blood and sacrifice beget calm.
Priests of Onslaught are also masters of blood magic. While all demons feed upon the life essence of others, the Priests can harvest that essence from the blood of others. To truly tap into these powers they perform ritual sacrifices, draining the blood from their victims and absorbing the essence. Amongst the screaming and struggles, the Priests of Onslaught walk with serenity and purpose. Leisurely drawing the serrated edges of their blades across the flesh of those chosen for sacrifice, and bathing in the arterial sprays. Charged with energy, they approach demonic nirvana. The Priests can use their blood affinity to heal and strengthen their allies, or weaken and curse their enemies.
A trophy rack of macabre comfort .
The heads of their more powerful victims are shrunken and added to the trophy racks on their horns, or strung across their bodies in garlands. When there is a shortage of violence, Priests can often be seen running their fingers over the shriveled flesh of their shrunken heads – comfort objects to subdue the burning rage. The heads are often used as repositories for the blood gathered during ritual sacrifices. The Priests can draw energy from them when needed, imbuing themselves with a rush of vitality and power
