The archdevil Belial (pronounced bee-LIE-uhl)[1], also sometimes going by the aliases Belhor, Jouvart, and Mechembuchus,[2] rules over his layer of Hell: the burning forges of Phlegethon.[3] Their[4] unholy symbol is a horned, red-and-white-split mask of comedy and tragedy.[5] Their areas of interest include adultery and desire.[6]

Asmodeus granted Belial an unlimited malleability of form, their true natural form unknown to all but Asmodeus. They freely shift form, species, and gender when engaging with mortal and immortal lovers across the universe, enabling them to become whatever and whomever might be most alluring to their lovers, leaving innumerable half-fiends of every description in their wake.[4]

Among the other archdevils, Belial typically appears as a delicately built humanoid between five and six feet tall with pale skin and hair but burning eyes, with one half of their body shining and angelic and the other as scarred, misshapen, and grotesque as the most hideous malebranche.[4]
