The Snake like entity that is said to have forced Sol into seemingly eternal slumber.
Mandaz is a large serpent with rocky grey scales, and a pair of clawed arms. Its head is spiky like a dragon's, and spikes run down its back, with a large pair behind his arms. When it's mouth is wide open it sports a massive pair of fangs.
Egotistical and uncaring, Mandaz has a god complex and wholly believes it is his destiny to rule the universe. He holds a Darwinist ideology concerning worth and life, with the idea being that he is at the top. It hates Sol, not just for its defeat but for his crusading in defense of lesser beings.
Mandaz is an Eldritch Thing from another dimension. Thanks to its already powerful nature and its ethereal nature added upon crossover, the snake became convinced it was a god and went about converting others to its service.
Eventually his people invoked the ire of the Sol Entity, by trying to conquer his Garden. While the Retributions immolated their world the snake god wrestled with the sun god. While he sank his fangs into the chest of the fire giant, Mandaz was ultimately badly burned and badly beaten.
He was ultimately put in the Pit and chained there while his wounds heal.
Worshiped by the Serpent People and other conquered races, only the Serpent Men still worship it. It demands sacrifice from its servants and held snakes as sacred. His symbol is a snake like rune.
- The Serpent People: Created specifically to worship it. They have been in decline since his imprisonment.
- Battle Hydras: four legged, two headed dragons with serpentine necks, they breath out miasma.
- Serpent Monsters: Collectively called the Sons of Mandaz, most, if not all have been destroyed.
