Being a half-human half-demon or devil, Nefas is capable of taking the form of either half. His human form, sports pale Caucasian skin, silky raven hair and light orange eyes. When in his human form, Nefas is notable for putting on sly smirks and manipulative smiles, hinting on his scheming ways. In his human form, Nefas stands at an imposing six feet and eleven inches in height and showcases a slightly slim athletic physique. He is notorious for wearing a black suit, a red trench-coat over the suit, white gloves with odd mystical symbols on them, a red fedora that usually cats a shadow over his face, black leather boots and a pair of black glasses with dark orange lenses. Nefas' hair is known for being quite long, surpassing even shoulder length and when taking his human form, it is combed almost perfectly. However, his more demonic form is different. His skin color changes to a pale gray color, making him appear almost lifeless, his eyes grow devoid of their pupils and irises, glowing an intense red color, his teeth become razor sharp and a pair of pronounced fangs appear, while his hair grows spikier and more wild. Nefarious Nefas also carries a pair of handguns with him, one silver, the other black. Due to being capable of shapeshifting, Nefas can take on a multitude of forms, including a grotesque amalgamation of hell hounds and other abysmal creatures or even something as simple as a house cat. Because of the fact that his father is a fallen angel, Nefas possesses some angelic traits although they are clearly corrupted. When accessing his angelic powers, black upside-down wings sprout from his back, granting him the ability of flight. Nefas is known for possessing a very deep voice even in human form and when in his demonic form, his voice is deeper with a second demonic voice speaking in unison with the first voice. In his demonic or true form, Nefas is known to maintain a more serious and somewhat blank facial expression, often using some of his shadow-related powers to make himself appear as a black silhouette of himself with his only prominent feature being his glowing red eyes. He is mostly silent when in his demonic form. Despite being incredibly old, Nefas possesses a surprisingly youthful appearance due to his immense longevity and supernatural physiology. In both his forms, he prefers to remain at his default height.
Perhaps the most prominent aspect of his personality is his undying defiance towards his father Satan. While Satan hopes that one day Nefas inherit the throne of Hell as his rightful heir, Nefas has other objectives in mind. Not sharing his father's interest in fighting off angelic forces, Nefas has his own agenda of tasks. Never having been interested in ruling over others or obtaining incredible power, Nefas has no fixed ultimate goal in mind. He simply exists to wreak havoc and mayhem but not through insane rampages, he accomplishes this by conducting elaborate schemes and pulling the strings from the shadows. While he shares no true goal, Nefas has stated before that he enjoys causing insane events that affect the world in different ways simply for the fun of seeing how everything will turn out. Being very very old, Nefas has crowned famous kings just to see them fall, indirectly caused memorable murders just to see how it will affect the future of the world. He is unpredictable as his objectives vary from time to time. His nickname "The Voice" stems from the fact that he has appeared invisible or in the form of a shadow to many historic figures, often influencing them by using hypnotic suggestions when he speaks. Nefas is notorious for being the one who coerced the Roman emperor Nero into ordering the murder of his own mother, he did this by promising Nero great power in return, claiming that he wanted to see how merciless Nero could be. However, after witnessing Nero order the death of his own mother, Nefas left the Roman emperor with nothing and left him to his future downfall. The Dark Prince is also responsible for manipulating Alexander the Great's mother Olympias into believing that she was impregnated by Zeus, he did this by shape-shifting into the Greek God and telling her so. But perhaps Nefas' most memorable act of manipulation was appearing before a young Adolf Hitler in the form of a red-eyed shadow, promising him a throne as the ruler of the entire world if he killed all of the Earth's Jewish people. As evidenced by these horrible acts, Nefas is incredibly manipulative and deceitful. He sees life, humanity and fate as nothing more than simple games for him to toy with. He has no regard for life and is a merciless being of sly evil. When appearing invisible as a mere disembodied voice, he has coerced many into horrible crimes such as rape, murder and more. Nefas claims to be responsible for driving many men insane, causing them to become deadly serial killers by repeatedly whispering into their ears in the form of a disembodied voice. The Son of Hell is almost entirely fearless and the only thing he fears is being unable to continue his "game". He loathes his father with great intensity and is prone to insulting him whenever somebody else mentions him. Nefas is a very strange being. In his demon form he is very quiet and hardly ever speaks, however, in his human form he portrays himself as a calm, polite man who speaks sophisticated British English. Interestingly enough, whenever something peaks Nefas' interest, he can become quite a joker and somewhat manic as it excites him. Having lived for several thousands of years, Nefas has an enormous amount of experience and is quite intelligent, specializing in grand schemes that will make things "fun" for him. An abuser of his ability to manipulate probability, Nefas claims to have been the cause of John F. Kennedy's death by simply altering the probability of the man living. He has often driven people mad by giving them a large amount of bad fortune. A fan of taking gambles and some risks, Nefas is always willing to play with the lives of innocents simply to see what will happen and for his amusement. Nefas also claims to having done many other things that have indirectly caused the world to be what it is today, claiming that the 21st century is his rightful invention. Not one for engaging in battle, Nefas detests having to use his powers in physical combat, often preferring to let his schemes work for him. Whenever he does fight however, it is almost always to either stall for something bigger or to simply protect himself from extremely powerful threats. It is important to note that Nefas has a following of necromancers (and mages) or rather a cult that worship him and perform sacrifices for him. He honestly doesn't really care for them and could care less what happens to them, he rarely appears before them and when he does, it is usually simply to toy with their expectations or if he requires their brief assistance in one of his schemes. Embracing his devil-half much more than his human half, Nefas is known to grow quite vengeful to anyone who refers to him as "half-human" as he detests humanity for it's petty emotions and weakness. Nefas is known for observing every single detail before plotting which is the reason why he hardly ever doubts his devious plans. A cunning and manipulative being who loves to abuse fear, Nefas would never deny being the conductor of anything that seems to be of his working. One thing to note is that Nefas is the killer of his mother who was a powerful necromancer.
Pulling The Strings
Powers & Abilities
Due to his demon half, Nefas was born with a supernatural body capable of physical feats far beyond what any ordinary human is capable of. Perhaps his most prominent physical power is his monstrous physical strength. Being much stronger than an ordinary human being, Nefas is capable of effortlessly bending steel bars, punching through reinforced titanium, lifting and tossing bulldozers and has even managed to channel enough physical strength to knock a dragon unconscious with a single blow. While the limit to his strength has never been fully shown since Nefas is not one for physical encounters, it is estimated that he can lift a maximum of 30 tons. Aside from his fearsome strength, Nefas is also supernaturally durable. Possessing a body much stronger and more tolerant to pain than humans, Nefas is capable of withstanding high caliber bullet shots, falls from great heights, blunt impacts of great force and powerful energy blasts. However, powerful explosions have been known to harm Nefas and even injure him, because he is not fantastically durable, Nefas usually resorts to using his shadow-related powers to meld with nearby shadows in order to regenerate from a wound however, the more severe the wound, the larger amount of shadows is required. Nefas is also notoriously fast, moving faster than the eye can see. He has been witnessed dodging bullets at blank point range and disappearing and reappearing over long distances at shocking speeds. Nefas claims that is capable of challenging the speed of any modern day fighter jet, hinting at speeds surpassing that of sound. Due to the demonic energies coursing through his veins, Nefas is almost tireless and can engage in battle for weeks before tiring. His final physical ability which is unique to him is one that includes his blood, if one can call it blood. Nefas' blood is not red, it is black and tar-like. It is apparently dangerous. If Nefas' blood is mixed with a human's blood, said human will be infected in a way and will be tainted, corrupting their soul and making them demonic but even worse is that they will feel the urge to serve Nefas. In addition, Nefas does not require air, food or water. Interestingly enough, the Son of Hell possesses the ability to manipulate his own demonic blood. Because his blood is tar-like, it is difficult to escape from if he chooses to create certain constructs from it. His mastery at creating blood-constructs is just as great as his shadow manipulating powers. Aside from all of these other powers, Nefas possesses the rather eerie ability to "feed" or replenish his stamina by absorbing a person's fear. Whenever he is near someone who is experiencing fear, Nefas can absorb the fear which excites him and restores his stamina. An ability that is thought to be rare among demons is one in Nefas' possession which is the power to detect the demonic heritage in others, enabling him to easily find his brethren.
Because he is not the confrontational type, Nefas prefers to pull the strings behind the scenes however, when forced to engage in battle, he usually relies on his mysterious shadow manipulating powers. Nefas claims that the most basic shadow-related ability in his possession is the ability to absorb the shadows of inanimate objects. He states that he can use this for a multitude of purposes. Nefas can absorb shadows to replenish his stamina or to increase his size. Nefas can increase his mass by absorbing a large amount of shadows thereby allowing him to change his size. Nefas possesses a unique ability which enables him to absorb the shadows of dead creatures which in turn enables him to shapeshift into whatever owned that shadow. As of now, Nefas claims to have absorbed the shadows of millions of people and creatures, including the shadow of Zeus himself. This essentially implies that he can take the form of millions of different things. On to his more offensive powers, the Son of Hell is capable of creating shadow-based constructs such as colossal shadow tendrils each as strong as himself, gigantic shadow claws, countless shadow arms and more, Nefas' ability to create shadow constructs is limited only to his imagination. Nefas is also capable of creating weak clones of himself from shadows, these clones however, are merely as strong as adult humans and do not possess any of his supernatural powers, the only advantage being that they are linked to Nefas' mind which enables him to directly control them. These clones prove immensely useful when distracting or confusing others. Nefas' shadow powers are enhanced during a full moon and he gains two additional powers when under a full moon. The first ability is the power to turn into a "Shadow form" of himself which renders him immune to physical attacks however, he himself is also incapable of physically attacking others, even with his supernatural powers. It does grant him a form of intangibility though. And the final ability he gains is the ability to merge his shadow with his opponent's, enabling him to take control of them by controlling their shadow through his own movements and thoughts. However, when not under the full moon, his ability to manipulate the shadows of others is limited to ordinary people. Nefas is known to create weapons such as swords etc. from shadows. Nefas' shadow manipulation perhaps came as a result of his fallen angel portion of being as he is capable of negating light-related powers in others and is in fact immune to light-based attacks. The Son of Hell possesses the unique ability to effortlessly become aware of a person's age by simply observing their shadow, stating that shadows hide many secrets. It is no surprise that Nefas is at his most powerful when in an environment that is completely devoid of any form of light except any generated by his body.
Though he is not exactly an angel, he is the son of the most famous fallen angel in history, Lucifer. Due to being Satan/Lucifer's son, Nefas has inherited some limited powers from his angelic side. Nefas is capable of achieving flight through a pair of large black upside-down wings that sprout from his back. These wings are quite powerful, capable of killing an ordinary man with a single flap and at full strength, Nefas can generate strong winds with the aid of the wings. Nefas has stated that his wings are upside-down as all fallen angels as a way to identify them from their purer counterparts. Aside from incredible flight, Nefas is granted limited light manipulating powers. Capable of generating light all about his body, altering it's amplitude, intensity and frequency, Nefas can literally blind others by generating extremely bright light. His light manipulating powers end with the ability to generate lights on specific locations he focuses on with his mind e.g if he wishes he can light a light bulb or candle by simply thinking about doing so. This next ability is one only possessed by fallen angels and demons. Nefas is capable of invading the minds of defenseless humans through possession, enabling him to take over the minds of others and controlling them. Nefas usually uses possession so that he is not forced to appear in person. The Son of Hell's possession powers are limited to ordinary humans. Nefas is also capable of summoning hell hounds and demonic flaming versions of existing animals into combat, in fact he is capable of turning any body part of his choosing to whatever creature he wishes to summon. The Dark Prince is also known for possessing weak hypnotic powers which he uses to influence human beings with hypnotic suggestions. Perhaps his final ability, Nefas possesses a much weaker version of some divine powers that powerful archangels possess. While archangels are capable of affecting world events by directly altering reality, Nefas' power is much weaker and is in truth probability manipulation. His probability manipulation enables Nefas to change slightly according to his favor. For example, if there is a chance that a storm will occur tomorrow, Nefas can make it so that the storm does indeed take place. He uses this power in order to alter the fate of unsuspecting humans. He claims to have been the one who changed the probability of the bullet that killed John F. Kennedy to end the president's life. Having a certain level of mastery with his probability manipulation, Nefas has attained a level of skill that has enabled him to directly induce intense spells of bad luck to others.
Ebenum & Canus:
These are a pair of over-sized supernatural handguns forged from unbreakable metals that were once part of legendary chains once used to capture powerful archangels. The two handguns are almost entirely identical in terms of build and sculpt, with the only significant difference in appearance being the color of the handguns. One handgun is jet black in color while the other is silver-colored. The weapons themselves are unique. Ammo is apparently unlimited due to supernatural means and they fire deadly bullets made of a mysterious acidic metal that is capable of piercing through most solid objects. Each bullet releases a very powerful acid once the target is pierced and the acid itself is powerful enough to even affect reinforced titanium. The acid is tar-like and black in appearance. The handguns fire the bullets at an alarming rate, much faster than any ordinary gun would. Even machine guns are incapable of competing with the firing rate of these handguns. The black handgun is called Ebenum while the silver is called Canus. The difference between the two handguns aside from appearance lies on the final ability of the deadly weapons. If Nefas chooses to do so, he can mentally alter the bullets fired by Canus which can be changed to a mysterious set of unlimited white bullets that absorb the souls of whatever they killed. The souls are then transferred into Ebenum and contained there. Having already claimed the lives of millions with his trusty weapons, Nefas boasts to having at least one million souls contained in Ebenum. Nefas himself is capable of reading every single memory of the souls he captured and they even assist him in battle by offering to help him conduct effective strategies in battle. However, unlike his father, Nefas is incapable of stealing souls on his own and requires the aid of his supernatural weapons. One of the most eerie traits of these guns is that Nefas can make it so that his guns do not utter a single sound when they fire bullets, making them more efficient than any modern silencer.
The Dark Prince's trademark white gloves are usually thought to be nothing more than an addition to his wardrobe however, they do in fact serve a purpose, a useful one in truth. The odd ritualistic symbols on the gloves are not decorative. The symbols render Nefas a great alchemist, they mystically enhance his knowledge in the field of alchemy which enables him to create a variety of useful potions at an unbelievable rate. The Son of Hell has created potions that replenish health, decreases an opponent's health, stamina, intelligence, efficiency (in all skills), and even potions that temporary blinds others, turns the user invisible, and perhaps his greatest potions enable him to alter the state of inorganic matter such as the ability to change ice to water and even more complicated tasks such as changing wood to earth and water. Nefas usually employs this ability when attempting to poison unsuspecting victims or toy with others as part of a fiendish plan. He has created a large number of potions so far which he greatly treasures. Due to the nature of potions, Nefas never uses them in direct battle which he rarely engages in unless part of some plan. And the final ability of his gloves is that they grant him the ability to manipulate hell-fire if he mentally wishes to. However, a disadvantage is that whenever Nefas chooses to use hell-fire, his angelic abilities as well as his shadow manipulation are eliminated from his arsenal of powers as the channeling of hell-fire into a half-devil requires a great deal of mystical energy and so he must temporarily sacrifice some of his abilities in exchange for the power to control the flames of Hell. The difference of hell-fire from ordinary or earthly fire lies not in temperature but it is simply that with hell-fire, Nefas can corrupt ordinary humans by burning "666" into their skin. It also grants him the ability to sense the malice in others which essentially allows him to know who is good and who is evil. His skill at manipulating hell-fire is impressive as he can project large streams of fire, create fire-based constructs, shoot fireballs, shoot raw flames and even release an explosive wave of fire all about his body. Hell-fire unlike ordinary fire is slightly darker and redder in appearance.
