Backstory: One of the thirteen princes of hell who rules over the dark abyss. Dalkriig-Hath was a powerful demon with a horde of lesser demons and cursed souls at his beck and call.
Once the husband of the unwilling Artemis until she was able to escape the clutches of death, Dalkriig-Hath was a demon whose sights were set on attempting to conquer the Earth and make it his kingdom.
To accomplish this, he would send demons out into the world to spread discord and then in the guise of an angel, offer incredible powers to those who would seek to slay those demons. Unaware that their use of his power was weakening the barriers between worlds. Sowing the seeds for him to eventually open a permanent portal between the two realms from which he could advance his armies.
With his ability to turn those living into his minions. Turn the dead into mindless thralls to do his bidding. And commanding an endless army of demonic monsters whose powers were many and numerous, Dalkriig-Hath had everything he needed for his evil crusade against the living.
