— Azazel to Caden Grey.
Azazel is a Dekn Lord, and a recurring character in The Mayhem Theory.
Azazel was created in a magick ritual by the Arknmagus Raziel. The ritual was intended to rid Raziel of his madness and evil murderous tendencies; however, because energy cannot be destroyed, he molded it into the form of an Arkn, whom he named Azazel. Raziel took Azazel as his apprentice, and taught him to use his powers for the opposite of their intent (using the power of darkness to create light, using the power of madness to create peace, etc).
Azazel was among the best of the Arkn. He went on to become an Arkn Lord, and was eventually chosen to lead The Watchers: a group of Arkn who had been picked to observe humanity in their own realm. However Azazel, along with other Watchers such as Asmodeus, found human women beautiful and mated with them. As a result, these women gave birth to half-human children, known as The Nephilim, who wandered the Earth such as normal humans would.
The Dekn Emperor of the time, The Carver, informed the Arkn aristocracy of the events unfolding in humanity’s reality. The Carver informed the Arkn that if The Watchers were not returned to The Golden City for discipline and the Nephilim destroyed, war would ensue. As 176 Watchers were executed, Azazel and Asmodeus managed to hide out on the fringes humanity and watch the events of the mass execution ensue. Azazel was eventually captured, and was sentenced by the Arkn Cabinet to be imprisoned in a desert by Raphael. He was bound and sealed in a canyon formed by Raziel, where he was to remain for all time. However, he later escaped (by unknown means) and joined the Dekn, setting about to make it his life's mission to cause suffering to Raziel.
The Mayhem Theory
Azazel returned and instilled fear into Caden Grey, appearing as the form of a wounded Gabriel Holden. Azazel claimed that Raziel had left him there to die before he attacked him.
The Writings of Raziel
In The Writings of Raziel (Chapter 12), Raziel revealed Azazel's past history. He speculated that Azazel's ultimate goal was to re-merge with him, becoming one being.
