Azael the Ensnared is a demon lord.

Description

Azael was once a dour fallen angel hero of the Upheaval. He had been chained to an enormous plaza in ancient days, and despite his bondage he ruled a cult that extended deep into the Material Plane. He ruled this layer of the Abyss, which was a sprawling desert of shifting dunes and toppled cities, until he was slain, leaving only an oily black stain.

Relationships

Azael was slain by Ma Yuan, although his influence lingers still. Part of this layer known as Azael's Waste retains its desert form, refusing to give way to Yeenoghu's will.

Realm

Azael took over the Abyssal layer Bechard once ruled, calling it the Savage Searing. When Azael was killed, Yeenoghu took over the layer.
