Just a little warning: When I write Santiago in posts, he quite often refers to humans and demons as 'it' or 'thing'. There are exceptions, but only with individuals who are close enough to Santiago to be more than just property or objects to him.

If this bothers you, please don't hesitate to let me know; we'll work something out!

Have fun and don't let him scare you too badly ;)

Character Summary

Run.

That is generally the first thing people want to do when they encounter Santiago. If it isn’t his dark and sinister presence, it’s that frozen and deeply calculating look he has in his eyes. And let’s not mention the strange vibration that seems to follow him everywhere that he goes, like little quakes beneath the earth.

His attire speaks for itself in that it is absolutely immaculate and without a single grain of dust. Beautiful Victorian suits and perfectly smoothed hair go along with his predatory smile and cunning eyes. Shoes have a shine so that the leather looks like space black mirrors, and laces are tied in such a way that they, themselves, look like mirror images of one another.

At an even 6 feet tall, he has a slender build. He might even be considered thin in some human cultures, but there isn’t any awkwardness to his form. Instead, there is a languid and elegant manner to everything that he does... whether it be in writing his name on a piece of paper or landing a blow against the face of a rebellious prostitute.

Features are smooth and without blemish. Indeed, some might even say that his beauty is an impossibility in the world of the living or the undead. It must be said, too, that no one has ever seen Santiago's demon form. And if they have, they have never spoken of it.

Strange eyes are known to send ice straight down the spines of anyone unfortunate to catch his gaze. Their centers are a pale, almost honey colored brown while they darken significantly until black at the outer edges of the irises. One might expect warmth from such shades, but there is only a frigid wasteland of... nothing. There is a cunning edge to them, and his glare has been known to raise hairs on the backs of even God-like demons.

Character In-Depth

When Santiago was born, he wasn't alone. He had a sister, a twin, by the name of Elaza. They were left to their own devices the moment they matured, their parents abandoning them in such a way that they never saw them again. Santiago and Elaza were self sufficient, yes, but they had no prior understandings about the world. They learned together, each supporting the other even during the most challenging of times.

Their Dominions were equal, identical. When one started to struggle, the other would take the time in order to increase the power of the Dominion until it was a perfect match again. Together, they survived and they thrived on sameness and order. Everything had to be perfect. Flawless. There could be no mistakes. No stumbles. Failure, to them, was worse than death.

As in all things, there came a time when one twin began to surpass the other. Santiago pulled ahead with Absorption and Teleportation. His sister tried to catch up, but no matter how hard she tried, she was unable to reach him. Since Santiago refused to continue his training without her fully by his side, they sought outside help.

His name was Magnus, and he was an ancient demon with incredible power over Absorption and Teleportation. He took to Elaza right away, much to Santiago's chagrin. As time marched on, Santiago watched his only companion pull away away from him. She drew closer and closer to Magnus, and while he tried to draw her back... it was far too late.

The agony that the demon felt when he awakened that morning was indescribable. Not a physical pain, no, but an emotional one: Elaza was gone. And so was Magnus. More than one thousand years had passed, just the two of them. And now she was gone. he had been...

Replaced.

He searched for her desperately, but each passing decade had him growing colder and colder. A violence bloomed within him, pouring from his core. It was like an infection, pus from a festering wound gradually easing into every atom that he was. His rage turned into something monstrous, and soon the only thing that would sate his hunger was the very thing he suffered from himself: Pain.

When, finally, he found her, she was in the throes of sex with Magnus. The two twisted together, wrapped around each other's bodies. Their limbs clutching, fingers entwined. Breaths hot, cries of joy rising from their throats. Soon, however, those cries turned into screams, as Santiago stormed into the kitchen and grabbed a butcher knife. He returned just seconds later and buried the blade into the back of Magnus' neck, severing his spinal cord... catching him completely unawares. Elaza all but attacked her brother, and he responded in kind: with unyielding, vicious violence. Their battle took them everywhere it seemed, speed and teleportation carrying them from one floor to the other. Floors shook, furniture took on a life of its own, and blood was spilled. It lasted for days, with neither willing to relent to the other. Santiago was full of betrayal-fed rage and Elaza was desperate to survive.

Finally, Santiago put an end to his sister's fight; but he didn't kill her. he brought her to his home and locked her in the deepest bowels of the place. And there, still, she remains in chains. A victim of the affliction she herself caused him so long ago. She is one of many vessels of pain that he feeds upon... but always she will be his favorite.

Demon Information

Santiago Montago is the terrifying monster who Enforces the prostitutes and keeps them in line. A Captain of Gula, he takes his job seriously and rules the sex slaves with a metaphorical iron fist covered in blades. Perfection is the code that he lives by, and anything less is considered offensive. He will go to great lengths to punish those he deems unworthy and rewards are scarce.

Time, betrayal, and a lust for pain have left Santiagoa demon not to be trifled with. He is harsh, frigid, rigid, and unyielding. His merciless nature is legendary even beyond Kairo's circles, and he takes far more than he gives. Any kind of softness is rare, with acknowledging nods or gestures uncommon even among his superiors. He respects those who have earned such rewards... but such things are all too easily removed with it comes to a creature who knows the sensation of agony far more than he knows pleasure.

Unforgiving, frozen on the inside, and black-souled, Santiago has all but destroyed the one thing that he has left to live for. He descends into the depths of his home often to stare upon the wrecked and mangled body of his sister. His beloved. Once, he loved her. Now, when he delivers that which is deserved, he feels only...

Emptiness.
