Thralls are the mortal servants of demons. They come in two varieties: the thralls of the Fallen, and the thralls of the Earthbound. Demons choose thralls from among the ambitious, vengeful, crippled and bereft; men and women who feel cheated by the world, deprived of the lives they deserve.
All Thralls Edit
All Thralls may communicate verbally with their demonic masters, but normally only the master can initiate contact. This communication is not limited by distance, but requires spoken words.
Thralls of the Fallen Edit
The Fallen enter into rather symbiotic relationships with their thralls, despite the moniker given to these mortals. Fallen thralls are gifted with several supernatural or enhanced mundane abilities by their masters, and in turn serve them either by deed or by delivering Faith to them every morning (this is a function of the thrall-master link and automatic). Thralls who donate Faith can also be ravaged for extra Faith to fuel evocations and make them more powerful, at the cost of the thrall's willpower and eventually his health and sanity as well. The master-thrall relationship cannot be altered by the mortal, no matter how he violates the pact. Demons may cancel their pacts at any time, and break them automatically if they violate their conditions. Fallen thralls retain their free will. This may be dangerous, as the thralls can work against their masters. Additionally, it is possible for a thrall to become a ghoul as well.
Thralls of the Earthbound Edit
Earthbound thralls are slaves, pure and simple. The ceremony of enthrallment causes permanent psychological damage, and the reshaping of the mortal soul by its monstrous master leaves physical deformities as well. In the end, Earthbound thralls become totally subservient to their masters and lose their free will. They cannot offer Faith to their masters, but they are much more powerful than Fallen thralls - at the cost of their sanity.
