Tharizdun is the god of destruction. It’s said his ultimate goal is to unmake reality and end all existence. He crafted the abyss and populated it with the twisted souls of evil beings, now called demons. Using his chief warrior Orcus, who has himself ascended to godhood, Tharizdun slew the Absolute of Morality, Honorius, and caused the Sundering that shook the very foundations of the mortal world. As a result, the rest of Plageria’s god banded together against him and imprisoned him beyond the Oblivion Gate for numerous atrocities. Mephisto ascended to his thrown when he was banished, but does hold the power of an Absolute.
