Charming / Sweet Talker / Very Vocal / Organized / Manipulative / DeceptiveWorld of Origin:
Chaos Earth. A world much like Earth, but overrun with various Gods and creatures who incite madness and chaos. Many humans are able to get by without feeling the affect of these creatures, but there is a large number who cannot escape them.Known Family: Azathoth
(Father) and The Nameless Mist
Nyarlathotep differs from the other deities of his dimension in a number of ways. Most of the Outer Gods are exiled to the stars, like Yog-Sothoth and (his father) Azathoth, and most of the Great Old Ones are sleeping and dreaming like Cthulhu; Nyarlathotep, however, is active and frequently walks the Earth in the guise of a human being, usually a tall, slim, joyous man. He has "a thousand" other forms and manifestations, most reputed to be quite horrific and sanity-blasting.
Most of the Outer Gods have their own cults serving them; Nyarlathotep seems to serve these cults and take care of their affairs in the other Outer Gods' absence. Most Outer Gods use strange alien languages, while Nyarlathotep uses human languages and can easily pass for a human being if he chooses to do so. Finally, most of them are all-powerful yet evidently without clear purpose or agenda, yet Nyarlathotep seems to be deliberately deceptive and manipulative, and even uses propaganda to achieve his goals. In this regard, he is probably the most human-like among the Outer Gods.
Nyarlathotep enacts the will of the Outer Gods, and is their "messenger, heart and soul"; he is also the servant of Azathoth, whose fitful, spastic wishes he immediately fulfills. Unlike the other Outer Gods, spreading madness is more important and enjoyable than death and destruction to Nyarlathotep. It is suggested by some that he will destroy the human race and possibly the earth as well one day.
When Nyarlathotep is not busy spreading chaos and madness or the will of the other Gods, he does take the time for his own pleasures. Since most of the known deities of his world are currently sleeping or exiled, he spends much of his time selfishly indulging in his own pleasures.Ons and Offs: Clicky, ClickyNotes:
*Ny prefers to obtain sexual pleasure through mental and physical torment. This includes scaring, threatening, and humiliating.
*While Ny is a God, he does not usually exercise his abilities to their full extent beyond some shapeshifting and he does not discuss his origins with many.
*Ny will usually keep to his preferred Egyptian Human form till behind closed doors.
*Ny is not against sex, but he finds sex without causing a little madness entirely boring and dull.
