You can chose to ignore some things you don't like on Golarion, like guns or androids. The existence of a crashed spaceship in Expedition to the Barrier Peaks did not ruin the World of Greyhawk setting. It is entirely possible to ignore huge chunks of the world, if they do not fit your vision. (Heck, many people in Europe one thousand years ago had little idea of what was going on over 1000 miles away.)
For the character concept, I would recommend Calistria who has no love for Asmodeus, particularly the misogyny in his cult. (I am not sure what version of the mythology of Golarion is correct in regards to Asmodeus and Sarenrae.)
However, I think that the worst enemy that Asmodeus has is Rovagug. There can be no compromise with Rovagug.

Hm...cant find a copy of this in 3.0 or 3.5 on 4shared. Did they take it down per chance?
Jay, it never was up there. I initially asked D20PFSRD if this was possible to put there, but there are issues. (See the early discussion in the thread. I guess it is one thing if I share this as a private individual, but another if it is on a site.) You can include an e-mail in another post.

Well, a schism inside the Mercane might be interesting. There could be different lawful sects with different agendas and alignments.
As for the us versus them game, it looks like they already took over Katapesh on Golarion or found people whose thoughts run along the same lines.

@William Ronald: I am actually updating it for my group. Though I need to find some Maps for it (IIRC). We are planning on it being an intro for some of our Players Family. Would you like some updates from it? Or even help us "Update" it?
A friend encouraged me to update the adventure when I have a chance. (I am doing a lot of job hunting of late.) So, I am not sure of wanting to see the updates.
In retrospect, I think I could have done a better job with some of the NPCs.
idilippy, check your e-mail.

I am honored and flattered to do so.
I was still fairly new to Pathfinder at the time I created the conversions. I made the guards kind of average, so that the PCs - regardless of character generation methods -- would be tougher thant he typical guard. I also changed a couple details to add some Golarion flavor.
As I set the adventure in Lastwall in the Fangwood on a road that ultimately leads to the Hold of Belkzen, I used names that seemeed appropriate to the region. As Vellumis, capitol of Lastwall, sounds vaguely Slavic or Baltic, I used Slavic, Baltic or Germanic names for many of the NPCs. (I was unaware of a previous reference to the Cave of Chaos in Ustalav, but the names would work there as well.)
In retrospect, I would probably have made some changes to the adventure. (I have learned a lot since becoming a Pathfinder Society player and GM.) But I am happy with it and hope that everyone who reads my conversion enjoys it.
Actually, Interstellar Alliance President John Sheridan in the Babylon 5 series was/is/will be a descendant of General Sheridan.
I am curious if the book will cover how different faiths approach being good, much like paladin codes were covered in Faiths of Purity. Different faiths will have different takes on how to respond to a given situation. (A paladin of Torag, a paladin of Sarenrae, a paladin of Shelyn and a paladin of Erastil may come to a dilemma from very different places and have different resolutions of the dilemma.)
We are playing bi-weekly at Lightspeed Hobbies in Portage, starting at 5:30 PM Central on Thursdays. Tomorrow, we will have the Sanos Abduction (4-05) for tiers 3-7, the Tide of Twilight (3-05) for tiers 1-5 and we can run First Steps if needed.

We will have Pathfinder Society this Thursday at Lightspeed Hobbies in Portage, IN. We will have the Tide of Twilight (Tiers 1-5) and the Sanos Abduction (Tiers 3-7).
I am pleased to see that PFS is going well in South Bend.

I also took the time to let some people know about Pathfinder Society this Thursday at Lightspeed Hobbies in Portage, IN. So, we may need to find a few more seats.
I had a lot of fun and I think that the store owners were very impressed with the turnout.

I just played "My Enemey's Enemy" and My Andoran Faction mission was to help Andoran bust drug traffickers. Huh? Andoran is supposed to be about freedom! What business is it of mine if someone in Andoran wants to take "pesh"? I don't think this faction mission should be in the scenario. It's waaay too close to actual real world politics.
Pesh is one of the product's sold by Katapesh, a nation infamous for slave labor and selling slaves. I cannot speak for the designer, but I would suspect that the source is the big problem. Of course, pesh does weaken the mind and may lead to people making even more bad decisions.

Add to that the environmental devastation of Earthfall, similar to a nuclear winter, and you would likely have people pursuing food animals such as deer and cattle.

My first Pathfinder Society character has a background story that his family has been in Absalom since the beginning of the city -- doing hard work. So, I imagine him maybe looking a bit like a Taldan/Kelish/Chelish mix with hints of other things. I have yet to find anything in the books on having a mixed character in terms of knowing languages.
