Spears of Vengeance is an organization who works for devils. They hunt the targets designated by their customers, whether the target is a mortal, demon, angel or even another devil. They only accept jobs offered by archdukes. The organization is not so unprofessional as to be a part of lesser devils’ games or desires.
The headquarters of the organization lies in Hells, but little cells can also be found on the material plane.
Even if they look like an assassins’ guild for devils, they are not that simple.
The group is led by Vretiel, a fallen angel. She rules the group with an iron fist, and there is no ne to question her authority. This is not only because Vretiel is a fearsome foe but also due to the fact that she leads the group with both wisdom and determination.
Vretiel wants to take vengeance from angels because of a reason unknown to the other members of the organization. She also thinks that devils should be the force governing the whole universe, however, it is also unknown which arch devil she favors most. Vretiel carries two longswords and a spear with angelic engravings on it. To this day, none saw Vretiel using the spear in combat and rumor has it that she has used the spear only once which was for her personal vengeance.
Vretiel is known as The Vengeance. Highest ranking members are known as The Hands and the others are The Spears. Vretiel commands The Spears through The Hands. She doesn’t like talking too much, orders are delivered by The Hands. If Vretiel speaks to someone other than The Hands directly, then it is certain that there is an important matter, most probably about the vengeance of this person.
Although Vretiel’s stand among arch devils is not known by others, she sides with Asmodeus, her corruptor and the true founder of the cult. Asmodeus also finds out about all the information gained through contacts, and taken as payments.
The organization has little restrictions over class or race but there is one thing that is very important, all members must have someone to take vengeance from, or something they wish to avenge. Demons, worshippers of demons, and followers of deities who are strictly forbidden to consort with fiends, cannot be members.
Once a member is accepted into the organization, they are given a special spear forged in Hells, called Spear of Vengeance. When a life is taken by this spear, the soul of the creature is captured by it.
Vretiel is a natural leader and she chooses all the members by herself, learning the details of its personal tale of vengeance. Vretiel does so, because she thinks that every vengeance must be taken, and she keeps that word. In return, she is respected by the members. Later, when the members see that they are cared for, even by the leader of the organization after some time, they start to follow her zealously. In the members’ eyes, Vretiel is the true angel of vengeance.
GOALS AND ACTIVITIES
They murder and capture the target’s soul, imprisoning its soul to be delivered to the customer. Upon a job’s completion, the customer makes two types of payments, one to the member that completed the job and one to Vretiel, as a soul or a piece of knowledge regarding the vengeance of the members who worked in the quest. It is not unheard of for the souls received as payment, to be the target of vengeance, for some of the members of the cult (as a coincidence). If this happens, Vretiel resurrects and delivers them to the members concerned, so that they can fulfill their vengeance. The amount of gold, knowledge, and soul received, is determined by either Vretiel or The Hands before the job, and a contract is made in blood.
The cult has some strict rules. Vretiel’s orders are the law and must be followed to the letter. All contracts’ requirements must be fulfilled. If there are two members trying to take vengeance from each other, they are not offered a job until they solve the situation, probably by the death of one.
