Xanos speaks little of himself. If pressed, he says only that he was wronged by a betraying kinsman, and now seeks knowledge of how to undo what has been done to him. He carries himself with an air of natural authority, and looks at everyone he meets with intense scrutiny, as if he is weighing heavy decisions in even the simplest of interactions.
BoL Alchemy rules:
The scientists and inventors of Lemuria, these
characters need to be literate. Alchemists are
often mistaken for wizards by those who do
not understand science. Skills covered are
things like making potions & perfumes, plant
lore, poisons, medicines, metallurgy, distilling
allanium (lighter-than-air-metal) for flying
boats etc. This is not a terribly common career
for adventuring Heroes, as it requires too much
patience. Mind is normally the most important
attribute for an alchemist. For each rank above
2 in this career, the character must take a flaw

THE BARBARIANS OF LEMURIA
Rare potions and effects would include:
Nergal, the Host of Plagues: This demon feeds on death and suffering. It's presence in Xanos manifests as the smell of rot and blood and dust. Xanos' eyes, hands and tattos begin leaking blood When Nergal overtakes him. Plague creatures (swarming insects, rats, ravens, vultures, wolves) are be drawn by it's presence and commanded by it's will. Nearby plants die, wounds refuse to heal or close. It's touch would bring fever and disease. It is a sadistic cannibal, delighting in eating still living creatures. It is a rather bored creature, gaining small amusement from watching diseases and insect plagues have on lands and creatures. If any one word could describe Nergal it would be Apathy. It's voice sounds like the wet burbling of a person about to die of lung-rot. Before the long imprisonment, Xanos sought Nergal to learn the secrets of becoming immune to disease and freeing himself from the need to eat or drink. Nergal tends to surface when Xanos witnesses or causes intense pain. The color of it's voice is represented with Blue Text
Mammon, the Lord of Bindings: This demon gains power from subjugation and suffering. It's presence in Xanos manifests as the smell of metal and sweat. His tattoos become polished and metallic and his eyes take on the sheen of mirrors. Any metal near him tarnishes or rusts becoming jagged and unclean. Any chains or ropes or other flexible objects near him become animate, sprouting sharp protrusions and do the demon's bidding lashing and binding his victims. His voice is the rasp of metal on metal, the rattling of chains and the crack of the lash. Mammon seeks dominion over all things, but is a patient and calculating tyrant, and surprisingly reasonable to those who give him the respect he believes is his due. Xanos sought out Mammon to learn the secrets of how to free himself from the petty concerns that plague mortals. Mammon's secret gave Xanos the ability to maintain his sanity over the ages. Mammon tends to surface when Xanos becomes controlling desirous, demanding or arrogant. The color of it's voice is represented with
Azrael, The End of Hope. This demon feeds on the energies of the world, like a personified force of entropy. When Azrael begins surfacing in Xanos' mind, or when it takes over, his skin fades from it's normal darkness to a pale ashen color. His tattoos and runes crack along his skin, leaving them looking like ragged frostbitten tears, and his body temperature drops to near-freezing. His eyes become pits of swallowing blackness. Upon manifesting, it's presence begins draining energy of all kinds. The air temperature drops, breath becomes cloudy, frost starts forming, people feel weaker and tire more easily, eventually things begin showing signs of age (leather cracking, paint fading and peeling, hair whitening, ect.) It's touch leaves ice in it's wake and dries and cracks things. Organic materials, like cloth and plants, simply crumble to dust. Living things feel their muscles cramp and whither, their skin cracks and shrivels. Arthritis sets in and bones calcify. Hair whitens and teeth rot. It's presence and touch also drains emotional energy, leaving victims feeling hollow, unable to care about anything, just full of apathy and despair. It's voice sounds like dozens of rasping whispers all saying the same thing from different directions. It is a surprisingly easy creature to interact with, patient, reasonable and calm, but humorless, completely single-minded and inexorable. Xanos originally contacted this creature to learn the secrets of protecting his body from the ravages of time. It tends to surface when Xanos witnesses or causes fear or sadness. The color of it's voice is represented with.
Asmodeus, The Face of Ruin, feeds on hate and rage. It is a creature of shadow and flame, fury and madness. It is the hardest to control of all of the demons and it's powerful will is most likely to come bubbling to the surface when Xanos becomes pleasureful, frustrated or angry. When this happens Xanos' eyes light with fire from within and his most prominent tattoos take on a fiery glow, like magma cracking beneath stone. All the tattoos begin leaking traces of smoke and giving off wavers of heat from his skin. When it fully manifests smoke and darkness pour from the runes leaving Xanos wreathed in smoke. It becomes swelteringly hot around him. Light near him dims or goes out completely, things begin smoldering and easily lit things may spontaneously combust. Fire pours from Xanos' eyes and from the tattoos on the palms of his hands and from some of the prominent tattoos (like the central spiral on his chest). The creature is immensely strong and fast, moving like a great predatory beast. It's voice sounds like the snapping and roaring of a forest fire. It's personality is violent and unpredictable, full of gleeful mayhem, and completely without restraint. Xanos originally contacted this creature to learn how to contain the immense amount of power he needed to be able to accomplish his goals. The color of it's voice is represented with Bold Text.
