Appearing as a giant sized and well built pangoloid, he wears a snake mask which covers his face, and six tails which extend from it forming 'hair' from the helmet. He resembles a heavily armored samurai, cloaked in red, and usually carrying both weapons at once.
In his animal form he is a 6 headed snake, each head crested with a different dragon-like frill.
Out of the two dark gods, he is the most likely to be worshiped. Cruel and manipulative, he can and does grant his blessings to those loyal to him and his cause, to overthrow the forces of light and prove once and for all who is superior. He is comparable to the classic genie who would grant you all your desire, and yet twist your wishes around to some dark end.
 Clergy and Temples
Usually those seeking revenge or strength fall under his name. Most directly opposed to Benu, they dabble in necromancy often to form large armies to attack the living. They have no ethical concerns but some so have a warped sense of honor. They are found in cults who have loose ties between each other, and usually are hidden disguised as something else, even hidden as champions of good.
