IC? Representative of a rich cultural tradition, and the loss of these names is evidence of the demonic culture being destroyed and eroded away like a village in a tsunami.

I will say it again- demons are the niggers of the EH world.

Elfen High is interesting, in that we tackle very real and very complicated social and political issues, namely those concerning the battle between cultural tradition and modern needs.

We also tackle them with lesbians and talking bears, but whatever.

And dick jokes. Lots of dick jokes.

To be fair, demonic names are bullshit.

That's what makes it fun.

Though I do admit the demonic empire is me thinking "What if we took all the warring tribes of old Africa and we put them under the grip of an iron-willed, powerful psychopath?" Demons are generally based off the tribes of Africa, though with more tolerance of gays and abortion and stuff (not because they're bleeding heart liberals, but because fuck Yahweh).

And like the tribes of Africa, nobody gives a flying shit about their cultural nuances, or what makes them tick, or so on. Just a problem that has to be solved.

The demon culture is twisted, warped, savage, brutal, and violent - but is that an intrinsic feature of its existence, or the result of a single madman who lucked his way into power?

That's actually a very interesting question, one that has basis in the real world, and one we unfortunately don't have time to explore.

Best way to explore it is really just by oneshots or news posts.

Though obviously it isn't an integral part of a demon to be violent- we have met decent demons before. That was the main reason I introduced Naxinian- he's a normal guy trying to get by in Heavensgate, is actually a Christian (of the angelic version of the term, it's really more of a mishmash of Judaism, Christianity and Islam), and is quite polite and well meaning.

I liked one of Ende's casual mentions of him being Richard's "Uncle Naxinian" and a family friend of Calliel and Ivy. That brief mention actually speaks volumes.

I like to think Azazel was raised by a fucking psychopath in the middle of goddamn nowhere.

Because no other demon - stupid and violent though they may be - have matched his unparalleled bugfuck madness.

As much as humans can suck, Azazel was around for a thousand or so years and got worse with every minute.

And he started off as a cross between Hitler and the Joker on meth.

Azazel's dictatorship was the exact opposite of what Lucifer claimed to have fought for, which is a tremendous irony.

And Lucifer is considered a sort of deity among the general demonic population- Azazel is likely to have used his name as a sort of propagandist state religion, similar to State Shinto in WW2 Japan.

In recent years, I'm sure many have turned against his memory - many demons are probably now coming to terms with how fucking awful Azazel was, and Lucifer is associated with it.

On the other hand, there are probably many who are nostalgic for the Azazel years, which no doubt leads to conflict.

There's also probably that third ground who despise Azazel but still honour and respect Lucifer, like how many Arabs hate Islamists but are devout Muslims.

The one in the EH-verse? Well, they'd probably take the same sort of stance Daniel does with angels and demons in general, that they aren't really the ones referred to in the scriptures. This Lucifer's admiration of free will, humanity and his possession of a physical body go pretty strongly against the Mormon view of Lucifer, since he got kicked out of Heaven after starting a war because he wanted to replace Heavenly Father's plan of sending us to Earth and dealing with temptations and whatnot that involved free will (Also frequently referred to as agency) with his version where everyone has no capacity to sin, they all make it back to Heaven, and he gets all the praise for it, which kinda defeats the whole point of sending us to earth to be tested. Since Lucifer and about 1/3 of the souls in Heaven lost the war they got booted out and didn't get the chance to have physical bodies, so they're just stuck as wispy spirit jackasses for eternity.

I was just wondering how demonkind (especially since many adopted Mormonism) would reconcile both Luciferian teachings and the Mormon faith.

Well, as I've said before somewhere in this thread, Mormons believe Heavenly Father created worlds without end, including more ones with life on them. While the demons aren't perfect look-alikes of humans, they're relatively compatible in terms of biology as they can interbreed and such, so the LDS church would most likely assume demons are just other spirit children of God, possibly that many of them were more righteous spirits in the premortal life, which would be why they would be given the challenge of going through life on such a difficult planet. But what are the general details of Luciferian teachings anyway?

Lucifer rebelled against a stagnant, uncaring institution of Heaven for the sake of love and passion. He was the first angel to truly care about everyone, demonkind, human and angel and he taught that rebellion was good and just against an unfair system. If he had won the war against Heaven, angels and demons could have lived in harmony- but Michael casted him out and it is unknown what happened to him. One day, he will return and bring justice back to the unfair, uncaring world.

Luciferianism is probably very interesting.

I figure by 2030 the actual Rastafarians would have gotten sick and tired of middle-class white kids who smoke pot going on about how Rastafarian they are because their hat has funny colours on it and they wear a couple beads and don't cut their hair.

Snowflake the Elf (Because Night asked...)

Postby Evraim » Sat Sep 07, 2013 10:52 pm

Name: Snowflake the Elf (Fleurette Rietveld)

Age (Actual): 374

Age (Appears): 13

Race: Elf

Appearance: Snowflake is a petite being, closely resembling a thirteen year old human. An unruly mane of chestnut ringlets cascades down to her waist, while her twinkling green eyes are resplendent with Christmas cheer. She weights in at about seventy pounds wet, and stands an impressive four and two inches tall. Like most elves employed in the capitalistic hellhole of the North Pole, Snowflake wears a green and red uniform, complete with bells, which rings whenever she takes a step. Oh, and pointy ears!

Powergrid/Powers:

Powergrid

INT: 8
STR: 1
DUR: 1
SPD: 8
FS: 1

Powers

Practical Jokes: 4
- Snowflake thinks that she is Loki reborn, and it is admittedly funny to see one of your mates fall for a practical joke. Unfortunately, she doesn't really control this ability, and often makes use of it at inopportune moments, like when she shot off fireworks in one of the wartime factories, setting back production of the first elvish tank by more than a decade. So, yeah, she's kind of annoying.

Teleportation: 5
- Snowflake can teleport, but this almost always takes her to an unintended destination.

Perception: 0
- She lacks perception, or common sense.


Weaknesses: Having spent most of her life at the North Pole, Snowflake is rather naive about the world in general, often mistaking people's intentions or misunderstanding certain pieces of technology. She also dislikes heat, dreary colors, and tall people. If a person steals one of her shoes, Snowflake is bound to their service until it is returned. In general, she also happens to be rather incompetent, leaving one to wonder if the USFE sent her into the world as a diplomat or just to get rid of her.

Personality: Snowflake is a cheerful, earnest little elf, fully dedicated to the proletarian revolution and the emancipation of her people from the shackles of destitution and wage labor. Often, this commitment manifests itself as grim resilience, though one should expect her gravitas to be sabotaged by childlike laughter every few minutes. Snowflake also happens to be quite mischievous, casting spells to cause mayhem, with scarcely any motivation.

History:
Fleurette Rietveld was born in Holland, to a pair of loving human parents. As a young child, she always loved Christmas, snow, and pranks. Fleurette grew up in a small, working class district of Amsterdam. Her father carved and shined shoes for a living, while her mother was a washerwoman. Due to the family's financial difficulties, she never really attended school, but rather helped with chores around the house, sweeping and dusting and whistling happy songs. Despite the tedium of her existence, Fleurette was never sad, until that fateful Christmas night...

It was stupid. Even a simpleton would have known better. They had all heard the tales of Zwarte Piet, and his sharp-biting whip. Every child that side of the Rhine had been warned against naughtiness. Still, Fleurette had somehow mustered the courage, the unmitigated stupidity, to venture outside against the explicit instructions of her parents. A friend of hers by the name of Edwin organized a snowball fight that night, and five other children came. At first, Fleurette laughed and hurled misshapen balls of snow at the other children. But then, a bone-chilling chant reverberated through the brooding forests of the Low Countries, a macabre call of a "ho! ho! ho!". They scattered like a flock of quails under the hunter's watchful, inescapable eye. Fleurette ran headlong into the woods like a frightened rabbit, never glancing back. In the end, however, Santa caught her, like he did with all the other wicked children.

When they reached the North Pole, Santa turned the children into elves and sent them to work under his manager Zwarte Piet, never bothering to pay them for their services. Such was the punishment that awaited children who misbehaved. Snowflake, as she was now called, was given her bells and beaten whenever she cried for want of home. Why? Because Santa is a jolly fascist, and something of a sick fuck. Zwarte Piet was much kinder, and more able, embracing the human resources approach to business. Snowflake grew fond of Piet, coming to trust him as a second father. She also managed to stay in contact with Edwin, who had been transformed into an elf too.

Years passed, and gradually the North Pole modernized. In the eighteen hundreds, a cabal of British Magicians compelled Santa to abolish chattel slavery in his dominion. He also industrialized, causing many elves to lose their jobs. Snowflake, while horribly incompetent, somehow retained her position in the factory. As such, she opposed the actions of the Elvish Luddites, who rampaged and destroyed valuable manufacturing equipment. Despite her misgivings, Snowflake was aghast when Santa responded by brutally executing the agitators, one of whom was her old friend, Edwin. He had them impaled on candy canes. Candy canes. Have I mentioned that Santa is a sick fuck yet?

In the twentieth century, things changed dramatically. The advent of Marxism in Europe gave many of the disenfranchised elves of the North Pole hope for a better future. Radical leaders such as Twinkle and Sugarplum wrote manifestos urging their brethren to rise up and cast down their oppressors. Collectivization of the means of production became a hot topic, one which interested Snowflake immensely. By the nineteen eighties, the situation had reached a boiling point. A series of strikes were called by the illegal unions, prompting Santa to initiate a crackdown. A civil war ensued, and everything went to hell in a hand basket. Caught in the middle of all these events was Snowflake, a low-ranking member of the USFE (United Syndicates of Free Elves). Her superiors characterized her as a chronic failure.

Within the span of a decade, she was transferred between the propaganda, military production, knitting, and rations departments, something seen as extraordinary in elvish society, as most elves don't manage to fail at existence. They still have no idea how she succeeded in accidentally giving an entire battalion salmonella. Elves are immune to salmonella for crying out loud! Eventually, the elected leaders of the USFE decided to send Snowflake as a special diplomat to the nations of the world, in an effort to acquire outside support against Santa's fascist regime. And that explains why she's about to pop into the story.

Just a run-of-the-mill sorority woman who enjoys political squabbles over things that probably won't change and role-playing in P2TM and II. Nothing to see here.

I'm more basic than a Barium Hydroxide solution.
