Princes and Kings

One of the more colorful aspects of the hordes of hell is their hierarchies, particularly the idea that there’s a powerful demon in charge of lust, or gluttony, or pride, or lust. These can make for great looming threats in a plot, and are among some of the most recognizable characters in hell. The overlap here between “So Many Satans” (a list of hellish emperors and names of the devil) and best-known demons is pretty high, but this is such a fun topic that it seemed worthwhile to section them off on their own.
