Balseraphs, seraphims that have been disconnected from the truth and fallen from grace are major demons that rise up from some of the lower reaches of Hell. Instead of becoming singers and sayers of truth they have instead created their own 'truths' and seek to make others believe them. Though these truths may be false... the sheer conviction in which the balseraph holds them is enough to sway mortal minds to believe such words. Their vessels, thralls, and servants tend to be ones in both high and low positions, advisors to others in which the balseraph can readily possess.
A balseraph's true form is one of a demonic serpent with bat-like wings that possesses six eyes. Eyes magical in nature and not of flesh but of scale run along the length of it's body. One must be wary of a balseraph for it is both deadly within the body of its thralls and from outside. Only harm done to it's true form actually hurts it.
Lucian, the Dreamer Balseraph tends to mostly roam within the dreamlands of the subconcious. His servants are demonic butterflies that devour the dreams and hopes of lesser demons and mortals alike. In this scene, he currently is in the process of enthralling a dragon to become a mortal vessel for him. As such, he has appeared in his true form to overwhelm the dragon.
I like Syrinoth's stuff. :D He draws awesome beasts and monsters! <3 He's doing an IA thing on FA so if you get the chance you should attempt to commission him! :)
Anyways, artwork by Syrinoth. Characters belong to me. :)
The pattern of the scales was based off of a corn snake.
