"It's cloudy with a chance of your loved ones inside me." -Apophis
Apophis, the Eater of Souls, is a recurring antagonist in Athalia Academy played by NarayanK. Serving to be one of Hell's most unpredictable officers, he is feared even among his own allies. Unlike most of Lucifer's personal officers, Lucifer, the king of Hell, did not personally hire him. He is despised by nearly everyone due to his unnaturally violent methods of completing tasks, often times twisting the commands made by Lucifer to purposefully cause something drastic.
Apophis usually dons an old trench coat torn in half and black pants. He wears the skin of his fallen brother, Ma'at, the Deity of Order and Light, as well as the skins of anyone he has killed. Apophis enjoys wearing demon skin, but never changes out of Ma'at's.
As of yet, how Apophis really looks like remains a mystery. He presents himself as a fairly tall entity with an extremely empowered physical build.
Though he has not properly introduced anyone to his past, rumors claim that he once held a festival involving the deaths of over six thousand captured lives. Being a deity that feasts upon darkness and souls, Apophis was accurately pictured as someone more than just a crazed sadist. Though his motives in claiming so many souls remained unclear, his actions, both in the past and the present, have deemed him to be one of the most feared supernatural beings among both people and gods.
Apophis held the hanging of two thousand pure angels, somehow killing every single one of them instantly just by using an ancient binding of chains. He also beheaded (one-by-one) two thousand demons in an open field, letting the angels he hanged watch their own enemies fall before a single being. The Eater of Souls also feasted upon two thousand human women, mercilessly eating them and offering swift, yet painful deaths.
His childhood has yet to be revealed.
- Eater of Souls
It is said that if Apophis eats three hundred souls, he would gain access to a new set of powers...
- Deity of Order and Chaos
As the reincarnation of the Deity of Darkness and Chaos, Apophis holds a horrifying amount of magic power, and a deceivingly large amount of physical power. Having finally defeated his brother, Ma'at, the Deity of Light and Order, in a duel, Apophis has claimed the power of his dead brother, wearing his flesh to emphasize his victory over the praised hero. The new power makes him immune to angelic auras.
Apophis claims that he has nothing to fear, and it really does seem that way. The demented man is capable of using a strange source of energy no one else can utilize without becoming like him. Fear-inducing abilities that hit Apophis will only grant him quadrupled physical strength and extreme resistance against nearly all kinds of spells.
- Dark Matter
A source of energy Apophis tends to use. This is one of his original powers.
Apophis is completely immune to mind-altering spells.
- Mind Cleaver
Apophis creates a manifestation of fear itself in the shape of a hand axe. He then violently throws it at a target with the intention of hitting them with it. When the axe collides against the first thing it makes physical contact with, it will shatter into nothingness, dealing no physical or magical damage at all. If the target is a living creature, then the feelings of when they were most terrified are reenacted without a warning in a duration of three seconds. Apophis cannot hit the same person with the Mind Cleaver again until a few seconds pass after initial collision. He can constantly spam these projectiles when facing groups of enemies.
- Prevailing Madness
Apophis activates a massive regeneration spell using his brother's power. He then tears his body in half (vertically), spawning five armored shadow warriors made of dark matter out of his body. These warriors are skilled in the ways of the sword, and are actually good practice materials for Apophis to train against. Once the five warriors leave his body, Apophis connects his body together in a quick second. Prevailing Madness is usually used to induce at least a small amount of fear in his enemies, but can also be used to simply fight against multiple people. There is about a thirty minute-long cooldown for this particular move.
The shadow warriors can easily be defeated by holy spells and high physical strength. They are sometimes used as shields against extremely powerful spells. The warriors themselves can efficiently swing their swords, but they cannot defend themselves easily. Also, they are unable to follow any other order directed to them other than attacking a target Apophis wants them to attack.
- Torture Bond
Apophis lets a chain with a sharp blade at its end tear out of one of his hands. If the target is a living creature and is successfully hit, Apophis transfers a massive amount of incurable nightmares that last for about fifteen seconds, also destroying the mind's sanity within the duration. As strong as this ability is, Apophis can only use this ability again after about two minutes pass by. The chain has a partial, automatic targeting system. (The Torture Bond can be blocked by inanimate objects, but note that Apophis throws the chains with immense strength)
Should someone interrupt the transfer process with an attack, the transferal is cancelled, and Apophis reclaims the magic. As a cooldown to his energy, he cannot use this ability for another ten seconds.
