The Ring of Arabata Inferna is a morphing demonic ring capable of forming into any melee weapon the wielder desires.
It is all but expected for devils to be at odds with at least one other devil. While this tension is usually kept in check by a demanding hierarchy system, every now and then the hatred between two demons becomes too great for ether to tolerate. Underhanded measures usually follow suit. Such is the case with the two demon lords Arzial and Morthos.
Morthos, being the stronger of the two demon lords, often toyed with Arzial and forced him to hunt for rare materials for his forge. For centuries this went on and on, until one day Morthos and the succubus Orianna bore a child named Kallista. Arzial knew that this child would be his tool of revenge, but he was unable to approach the child without risking the wrath of Morthos, and so he waited.
As the years dragged by, the child grew and eventually fell in love with the tiefling hero, Damakos. This union was made at the expense of her and her father's bond, which lead to Kallista joining her beloved Damakos on the material plane. Outraged Morthos forged a blade capable of consuming the souls of the fallen, intending to have the tiefling slane with it. Arzial, Morthos's lackey, was given the task of slaying the man. So on one long summer day on the material plain Arzial masquerading as a young boy, who often visited the Damakos's house to help with chores. Creeping into the house searching for his prey he soon found Kallista sitting in her drawing-room passed out on a book. Upon seeing this, a devilish idea formed in his mind, he could imprison his master's favorite daughter in his own creation. Knowing that not even Morthos himself would be able to free her from the blade he crept closer inch by inch until he was but a half step away. He stood bastard sword in hand and impaled her, sucking her soul into the blade forever binding it to the blade. After such an act he knew he would have to hide from Morthos, but he wanted his revenge to sting even deeper so he took the ring from Kallista's hand and set it into the sword's pommel with strong magics mixing the two enchanted items. After which he carved Morthos's mark into the floor, placing the sword in the center. Soon after, Arzial sensed Damakos approaching the house. With his false lead laid he shifts into back into his home plane, leaving Damakos to find his wife.
As Damakos enters the house he freezes, the air is still and smells of fresh blood. He calls for his wife, and upon hearing no answer, tears through the house searching for her. At last, he enters the drawing room and sees her slumped over the table, grief-stricken he runs to her. Upon reaching her he tests her pulse only to find that she has passed on, he then franticly looks around for anything of use when his eyes fall upon the sword in the center of the room. He slowly approaches reading the infernal symbol carved into the floor. Recognizing the symbol he assumes that Kallista's father has had her killed for disobeying him. In great grief and rage he carries his wife to the temple of the nine for burial. Several days pass, during which Damakos gathers three companions to travel with him into the Abyss to slay Morthos. Among these companions is his brother Leucis.
Over the next several months, Damakos and his band travel the abyss, slaying all manner of beast, searching for Morthos. After what would be three months on the material plane they find Morthos's forge, a large adamantium anvil and hellfire forge used to forge the greatest blades in all of the abyss, after which they sit and wait for Morthos to return. It is little more than an hour before they hear his thundering footsteps, a minute more passes before they see him stomping dragging what seems to be a male human by the hair. Although Damakos and his companions don't realize it Morthos is actually dragging Arzial, the true killer of Kallista. Seeing this Damakos and his companions charge Morthos, causing him to drop Arzial. A raging battle presses in which Arzial escapes and both of Damakos's nameless companions are killed. The tide of battle is heavily in Morthos's favor until Leucis circles behind Morthos, and with one great swing severs his left arm. Morthos fell to the ground in pain, and as Damakos stepped forward to deliver the final blow, his sword awakened for the first time. Startled by the sudden presence of his deceased wife's mind in his own, he
