Plot[edit | edit source]

Newly transformed, Kain´s firstborn Lieutenant comes to show his gift to the Council. Surprised, Kain observes Raziel´s newly gained wings and tears them down, incapacitating him. For this treachery of evolving before his master, Raziel was damned to be thrown into the Abyss by his brothers Dumah and Turel. Burning in its bowels as water is toxic to a vampire, Raziel´s body dissolves and its remains sink to the bottom of the Abyss. After almost a millennium of torment, Raziel hears a voice which awakens him to a new plane of existence. Surprised at his apparent survival, Raziel observes his appearance changed and covers his missing jaw with his cowl.

Introduction[edit | edit source]

RAZIEL (V. O.)
Kain is deified. The Clans tell tales of Him. Few know the truth. He was mortal once, as were we all. However, His contempt for humanity drove him to create me, and my brethren.
I am Raziel, first-born of His lieutenants. I stood with Kain and my brethren at the dawn of the empire. I have served Him a millennium.


RAZIEL (V. O.)
Over time, we became less human and more... divine. Kain would enter the state of change and emerge with a new gift.
Some years after the master, our evolution would follow.
Until I had the honor of surpassing my lord.
For my transgression, I earned a new kind of reward... agony.


RAZIEL (V. O.)
There was only one possible outcome – my eternal damnation.
I, Raziel, was to suffer the fate of traitors and weaklings – to burn forever in the bowels of the Lake of the Dead.


KAIN
Cast him in.


RAZIEL (V. O.)
Tumbling, burning with white-hot fire, I plunged into the depths of the Abyss. Unspeakable pain... relentless agony... time ceased to exist... only this torture... and a deepening hatred of the hypocrisy that damned me to this hell.


RAZIEL (V. O.)
An eternity passed, and my torment receded, bringing me back from the precipice of madness.
The descent had destroyed me... and yet I lived.


ELDER GOD
Raziel...
You are worthy.
