Duchess Aethel Cuthbert was dismayed at her husband's excessive lifestyle and lethargy in advancing his position in the nobility. While attempting to soothe her boredom, she came across a book that gave her instructions on how to summon a Demon. After being summoned, this Demon would do as told until the task was done and payment was received. Aethel summond the Demon called Haderechi.
Haderechi was strange amongst the Asmodai. While most could only teleport when their true name was called, Haderechi was able to teleport across short distances at will. Using this technique brought him in touch his all of his victims, and when he exited, they were bound to him, ceaselessly speaking to him all of eternity.
Aethel used Haderechi to punish rival nobles and make their wives destitute. The nobles would speak Haderechi's name, and he would suddenly appear and assassinate them. This went on for months, and the frightened nobles lashed out at the serfs in attempt to uncover the serial killer. Instead, the serfs realized that this was the time for revolution.
Aethel summoned Haderechi one last time to cover her tracks and hopefully survive the revolution. She promised him payment, and ordered him to stand still. Her guards swung at him from behind, but their blades found their mark in Aethel. Haderechi stood where Aethel was but a moment ago, and passively watched as she died.
It has become part of the legend of the Dalforian Revolution, that it was sparkled by a single word, so powerful that one's greatest enemy is struck down upon its utterance, but that the price is a measure of blood.
And Haderechi never lacks for company.
