Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Creature has ability scores beyond 30, ridicolous movement and absolutely overloaded abilities, modifiers to hit and DC's are calculated wrong, and funnily, mythic monsters can go up to CR 50, but this creature's statistics are far above what a CR 50 creature should have with the Mythic Monsters (5e Variant Rule), so even CR isn't right

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

During a Time long forgotten there was a demon going by the name of Belcheresk fought against a high elf that's was heir to the high Emperor's throne their battle was fierce Bolts of lightning were shooting everywhere firestorms were being Unleashed and the Abyss was about to be destroyed but eventually over time the high elf came out victorious after Belcheresk was defeated he asked for the high elf name the elf told him his name was Elrik and after this fight they became close friends and after a while Elrik revealed his true power I was able to create planes of existence, stop the gears of Nirvana/Mechanus, and battle with all the gods at once. Once Belcheresk Was beholden to this extraordinary power he wants become Elrik servant and sense Elrik is a person of virtue he allowed Belcheresk asked to become his servant and henceforth he served over to the best of his abilities and he maintains order in the plains of chaos and Evil.
