- In Sin, enemies are much more abundant and deadly than Arianna's Icecrown Citadel. The Obsidian Palace is in fact, not on the surface of Sin, but underground. In a volcano. So in order to get there, a person must fight their way through Sin, and then dive straight down. And then that's where they will be in the arena of Diabolos's Obsidian Palace. However, each monster in Sin is completely unique, aside from the bosses, so descriptions will not be provided. More of how many hits it takes to down them.
The player must fight their way through the wasteland of Sin, and make their way to Diabolos's Obsidian Palace, which resides in an inactive volcano. A sign that gives it away is the fact that the volcano is not erupting, nor is smoke being emitted from it. Once the player reaches the volcano, they must dive down into the top, straight into Diabolos's arena which he has kindly set up for them. The actual palace is made up of not just Obsidian, a material that is not too hard, but True Obsidian, a near-invincible material that Diabolos created himself using Obsidian and his Magic Power. The True Obsidian is capable of standing up to even H rank spells.
Weak: Usually around 5 lesser demons for each dice roll. 5 S ranks to defeat each.
Normal: 5 Normal demons for each dice roll. 8 S rank hits to defeat each.
Strong: 2 Greater Demons for each dice roll. 10 S rank hits to defeat.
Bosses: The Sin Lieutenants are fought as a gauntlet of bosses in order to get to Diabolos. They are not meant to be rolled, and are encounter. The order that they are provided is the order that the player must fight them. Diabolos will give the player the option to fight once more after each battle is over, or take a break, recovering the player all of their Health, Magic Power, and resetting their duration and Cool Downs. If a player simply takes a break after every battle, which is possible, they won't lose, but would rather be boo'd and looked on as very cowardly. Each Sin Lieutenant cannot be killed, as Diabolos will call off the match once he considers them defeated )(which is the required hits provided). Should a player attempt to kill or continue further, Diabolos will interrupt the fight himself, knocking out the player out regardless of their strength.
- Sin Lieutenant of Sloth:
- Sin Lieutenant of Envy:
Using his two swift blades, Envy is capable to outplay and outwit almost any swordsman regardless of their skill. His swift and powerful strikes each deal S rank damage, and his snake eyes are able to keep up even with the fastest mages, including H ranks. His blades also serve as the pinnacle of his Magic, with both of them being capable of absorbing an opponent's Magic, save for H rank spells, and fire it back at them in the form of a mysterious Dark Green Energy. A master sword player, and the ability to counter any form of Magic, Envy is a huge step up compared to Sloth, and is very difficult to defeat, but his weaknesses consist of hand-to-hand combat, and going on the offensive. It takes 15 S rank hits to defeat Envy, while each of his swordplay attacks will deal S rank damage, and his Magic Counters deal the same rank that was absorbed.
- Sin Lieutenant of Lust:
The Maiden of Lust is the only female member among the Sin Lieutenants. She can be seen as a step down by the standards of those who do not give into Lust, but a huge step up for those who do. She is a massive arachnid with a human upper body, that of a beautiful maiden with pale blue skin. Her voice is like a siren's, able to lure in even the strongest warriors to give into her. Like Envy, Lust does not go on the offensive often. She carries no weapons, but only her powers of Lust. She can be a very easy fight if the person does not give in to or fall for such things, but for those who do, they will find themselves mesmerized and under her spell, before having the life slowly sucked and drained out of them, dealing 10 S rank hits. This fight serves less of a purpose to defeat the player, and more as one to weaken or distract them. It takes only 5 S rank hits to defeat the Maiden of Lust, and she is only capable of A rank damage per hit.
- Sin Lieutenant of Greed:
- Greed's Armor:
Greed is when the Sin Lieutenants start to become devastating towards even the strongest of Mages. Greed will enter the arena as a mere human, and a very handsome one. He will be wearing a furnished suit, with his hair neatly slicked back, and his posture straight. He will also carry with him a mysterious suitcase, that contains his true power. Upon starting the fight, Greed will open up his Suit Case, shining a blinding light on the player, and once they gain their vision back, Greed will be seen in pitch black armor with the head of a hound, and a massive broadsword that looks nearly impossible to lift. It appears that Greed's source of Magic is non-existent, when in reality it is all poured into his broadsword.
Despite its size, Greed can swing that sword around with ease, and with every swing, Greed will create seismic shockwaves, sound-breaking attacks, and overall devastating blows. Even if he is not with melee range, and even if they are a thousand miles away, the power of Greed's attack can still hit them, and is practically impossible to block physically. The key is dodging it, but at the rate in which Greed attacks, that is a very difficult task. The worst of it comes with the armor Greed wears. It is invincible. No matter the power of the attack, or the person, the armor Greed wears cannot be broken through, or even scratched. Regardless of the Magic, magnitude, or power, Greed's armor in impenetrable. The only way to defeat Greed is to notice that he is not completely covered in that armor, as that would be impossible. Like any other armor, there are small gaps of cloth holding it together, at his elbows, and behind his knees. Once the player has figured out that they have this weakness, which is not easy to notice as it is the same color of his armor, they must sever one of his limbs, showing Diabolos that they know the weakness, and Diabolos will call off the fight, resulting in the victory. Each attack made by Greed will deal 2 S ranks of damage.
- Sin Lieutenant of Gluttony:
- The Lord of Gluttony:
Dressed in a biker outfit and wielding two sawed-off shotguns, The Lord of Gluttony is one tough demon to defeat. His Shotguns serve as his primary weapons and his Magic. If the player approaches him at close-range, he will use his Shotguns, never letting go of them, as shields to defend himself, which they are most certainly capable of, being able to withstand even H rank damage. These Shotguns do not fire bullets, but will each fire an extremely large beam, 10 meters in diameter, of pure Black Energy. Each beam will deal S rank damage, but that is not the worst of it.
Gluttony is very swift, especially in close quarters combat, and is very skilled. He may even use his Shotguns as melee weapons if he so pleases, and point-blank range shots hardly ever miss. But once the player has damaged him for 5 S ranks, he will unleash another ability his shotguns are capable of. Rapid Fire.
Rapid Fire is when Gluttony holds down the trigger to one of his shotguns, firing one beam after the other in very quick succession. Before one beam was shot at a time, and that was very difficult to dodge, but if the player does not deal with Rapid Fire very swiftly, it will be come so overwhelming that the entire arena, which is not that large, will be flooded with the blackness, and it will be impossible to dodge. Rapid Fire's beams still deal S rank damage, but are capable of dealing much more with the amount of shots produced from it. Once the player has managed to outwit Rapid Fire and deal 2 S ranks worth of damage to him, then he will unveil his final shotgun capability.
From out of his biker jacket, Gluttony will unveil 4 black crystals, and load them into his shotguns. These crystals act like shotgun shells for his beams. One pull of the trigger will instantly fire out 16 beams of the Black Energy, each dealing S rank damage. Like a shotgun, it does become more inaccurate and spread out the farther the person is, and if they are point-blank, they will receive 16 S rank damage, most likely killing them. This is the player's last chance, and they must deal 5 more S rank damage as fast as they possibly can against Gluttony, or else the amount of shots will overwhelm and destroy them, and he even has the capability of using Rapid Fire with these 16 shots.
After defeating Gluttony, the arena will widen itself, growing almost 5 times as big, and being around 200 meters in diameter, from its former measly 50.
- Sin Lieutenant of Wrath:
- Sin Lieutenant of Pride:
Pride is a Nephalem, and gains all of the benefits from being one. Any damage from God or Demon slayer spells are cut in half, and he utilizes Chaos Energy for attacking. Chaos Energy is a substance that is highly destructive, as it is an attempted combination of Holy and Unholy Energy. Pride utilizes it with mastery, capable of performing an infinite amount of spells and attacks with each, each of them capable of dealing S rank damage, or below if he pleased. He may also have the ability to conjure up H rank spells, and even one after the other in quick succession. Pride does not use any weapons, but the strength of his hand-to-hand combat can outmatch a sword, spear, dagger, or whatever the player may be using any day. Any physical attack suffered from Pride will deal SS damage.
Any player attacked by the spells of Pride will be silenced for 1 post should they be hit by it, and if any of his physical attacks land, they will be marked with a bomb that detonates after 3 posts, dealing S rank damage for every attack that they took from him. In addition, every 3 posts, Pride will be able to shield an S rank spell should the player attack him with one. It takes 25 S rank hits to down Pride, and once he is, the player will be ready to fight Diabolos the Black Devil.
Regardless of their choice, Diabolos will force the player to rest before fighting him. All Health, Magic Power, Durations, and Cool Downs will be set before fighting Diabolos, so the player is in the best condition they could possibly be for this challenge.
- Diabolos the Black Devil:
- Picture 1:
- Picture 2:
The two of them never really got into a fight, but Diabolos is superior in almost all aspects compared to Arianna. He may not be as fast, but he is certainly stronger, and definitely more durable. Whilst in his "human" form, Diabolos looks like a much more manly version of his son Deniel. His body is quite a bit bulkier, his face much more masculine, along with some facial hair, and he also shares the same red eyes and black hair. However, the front part of his hair is a dirty blonde color. He shares the same smirk that his sons have had on their faces, and often the laid back look. And that's kind of what Diabolos's outside personality is. Contrary to what some might have heard about him, Diabolos appears to be laid back and relaxed, almost as if he doesn't care about a single thing.
That is far from his personality whenever he is in a fight, however. That's where Diabolos begins to show that the rumors are true. He is full of rage, malice, evil, sin, destruction, annihilation, hate, and...some fatherly love. Despite Diabolos's serious nature in combat, he loves to have fun, and doesn't take it seriously from time to time. This comes from how unbelievably cocky he is in his own abilities, not necessarily arrogant because that would imply that he can't do what he says, but he definitely can.
Diabolos is a master strategist, being a general of his own army. He has high knowledge of combat; whether it's magic, hand-to-hand combat, or even swordsmanship. Diabolos is an unmatched warrior that has brought the finest warriors to their knees, his magic can stand up to the strongest mages in the world, and his intelligent strategies know almost no bounds. Without a doubt, Diabolos is one of the most fearsome creatures to ever exist.
Diabolos will enter the arena after the player, and then make his way to the very center. Aligning himself directly underneath the top of the volcano, Diabolos will enter his Black Devil Form. Lava will suddenly create a very swift circle right at his feet in a small diameter, and then erupt in an explosion and inferno of heat. Diabolos's transformation acts as the inactive volcano's eruption. It will surge up and spiral in a cylinder shape, before swiftly become corrupted with Unholy Energy, turning into a jet black color. Underneath the black lava, the player can see the pure red eyes of rage that belong to The Black Devil open up, and then the black lava will completely fade away as if it never existed. Diabolos will then let out a terrifying, feral roar that no other creature can mimic, and create winds strong enough to knock the player away. He will then draw his sword on his back, and the fight will begin!
- Demon Form:
Just like his son Deniel, Diabolos uses the Unholy Energy, only his is much more fearsome and powerful. In addition, Diabolos has invented his own kind of God Slayer Magic through his extensive knowledge of magic: Lava God Slayer. Lava God Slayer Magic is Diabolos's invented magic, using the Unholy Powers of God Slayer Magic, but using it with not fire, but lava and magma. In addition, since Diabolos's palace is made of Obsidian, solidified lava, he can consume it so he never runs out of Magic Power. Each of Diabolos's spells will at least be an SS rank, dealing two times S rank damage. However, he prefers to use hand-to-hand combat, as a single punch from him will be able to deal H rank damage, and one cut from him will deal HH rank damage. However, that is if Diabolos actually tries. Diabolos loves to have fun during his fights, and toy with his opponents, so he will oftentimes put very little strength into it, but even then, the lowest it can go is A rank damage. In addition to that, Diabolos's strength is so massive that he is able to crush S rank spells and below within the palms of his hands, so unless used very wisely, the fight will be determined by weapons and fists rather than spells.
Diabolos is far more durable than Arianna. The only thing that will even hurt him are S rank attacks, and it takes 60 of them to down this monster. A lot during the fight will Diabolos let the player land a free hit, but it is only for him to laugh at the pain they inflict, and show them the difference between their power.
So Arianna and Diablos are both illusions, what more? The fact that she had a son as well, and yet still acted lustfully. The illusion acted like it had its own life, maybe it would have never played around like that with her son. Who was the original son anyways? It was not currently the best time to ask such a question, considering he had just gotten out of that hell of a fight. It was by far the most dangerous one that he had to endure. The only reason why he was still alive at this moment was because of the good call he made to Aiyana, summoning her. Not only that, but to think she was a Slayer, and for that fact to be found in the best way possible. Achieving force instantly, what a lucky guy he was to have found such a Celestial Spirit. He understood why Aiyana thought of herself to be better than the Zodiac Keys, though Elyx did not like to compare them. It was just not fair to do that, not for his keys at least, not when they did everything in their power to protect him.
Being a Slayer looked like so much fun, but sadly, he was not born to be one. It was kind of sad, to have his fate chosen from the start, unable to change it. It made things hard for him, such as opposing enemies eating up his magic. Nimpha gave him a Solution to it, until he changed his whole magic set altogether. Not instead of Caster Seal, he had the Chronicle Celestial Spirit Summons, and instead of Wind Lerale, he had Swordplay Devastation magic. Seemed like a nice trade, since neither of them could be taken down by a slayer. Still though, he is very reliant on his weapon, and though he is not so reliant on his magic anymore, he could not help but wonder what it was like to have his own force.
For example, if he were like Iza, what would his form be like? She was a god slayer herself, so it was actually hard to imagine her suddenly turning into a dragon. But a deity possibly? Would her body be outlined with darkness, enhancing her abilities? Elyx himself never saw what she would be like in that form, and honestly, he'd prefer not to see it. She was insane enough as it was, she did not need to be pushed any further. And for what reason would she even need to hit force anyways? There was the possibility that she wanted to just destroy things out of boredom, but there was not enough ice in the world that would bunch up together, so fortunately, she'd have to do that on her own.
As for him, what about wind? A wind lerale dragon? It was unheard of, though there were many forms that you could take as a Lerale Magician, there was none that would be so devastating as Aiyana was previously. Nothing in his blood would allow him to do it, so why even bother trying?
