The Savage Duke


Berith appears as a soldier dressed in red and riding a red horse. His face is seamed with what appear to be old scars and he has a black, bushy beard. His voice is subtle except when he is enraged. On his head is a crown of gold which appears to flame when the demon is aroused.

He can turn all metals to gold by touch. He also has knowledge of the past, present and future, but will only trade this knowledge for a life of man or woman.

Berith delights in torture and will usually only co-operate upon being guaranteed that he can torture any prisoners the party may take. These he will transport to another plane once they are captured and bound over to him. There, he will torture them at his leisure. If anyone attempts to deny him this boon, he will attack them.

Known Agents and Followers

Priests and Churches

Molin TorchHolder, Head Priest of Sanctuary, is a follower of Berith. Berith is currently the primary Power watching over Sanctuary (as of ?).

Activities and Known Interests

Berith is said to have some power over covenants. He presides, in particular, over the covenant of circumcision, where this practice falls within his demesne.

So great is the power of his will that no record of his being bound by the highest of compellings exists, beyond those he agrees to abide by. Even where he agrees to such a covenant, extreme care must be taken by any who treat with this demonic duke.

"He giveth true answers, Past, Present, and to Come. He can turn all metals into Gold. He can give Dignities, and can confirm them unto Man. He speaketh with a very clear and subtle Voice."
Will generally lie. His voice predisposes one to murder and blasphemy. You should hold (wear) a silver ring between him and you when talking to him.
