The demon lord Xoveron (pronounced ZOV-er-ahn)[1] is the patron lord of gargoyles and is worshiped by them. He is also patron of the fearsome nabasu demons who perpetrate cruelty on his victims.[2]

Background

Xoveron, as demon lord of ruins, loathes vibrant cities and his goal is to destroy all of them and rule over the innumerable ruins that would cause.[2]

Unholy symbol

Xoveron's unholy symbol is a five-horned grey gargoyle skull; the skull is missing its lower jaw.[3]

Home

Xoveron's Abyssal realm is called Ghahazi: a truly vast, ruined metropolis.[2]

Appearance

Like many demon lords who serve as patrons to an entire race, Xoveron looks similar to the gargoyles that worship him, though, he is far larger than normal gargoyles. Xoveron is also unique amongst gargoyles in that he possesses an additional pair of arms and four heads. It is thought that he can see through the eyes of any gargoyle perched upon ruined buildings anywhere in the Great Beyond and, in this way, choose his next target to torment.[2][4]

Cult and worshippers

Xoveron is primarily worshiped by gargoyles as well as the demonic nabasu, he demands that sacrifices to him are performed by defenestration or by impaling the victim on tall stakes under the open, uncaring sky. Xoveron's greater ambition, and one shared by most of his worshipers, is the complete destruction of all civilizations, leaving him as the undisputed ruler of all the countless ruined cities left behind. One may see a premonition of this goal in Xoveron's Abyssal realm, Ghahazi: a shadow of what destruction Xoveron will wreak on the rest of the Material Plane.[2]
