The King of the Dark

I’ve been around for a long time.

I saw the pyramids rise, and watched their limestone facades crumble into rubble. I remained as Roman centurions tried to trample the old gods and the old ways into dust, only to carry their word all across the ancient world. I remained when the Christians tried and failed to make the old gods into demons, and when the Muslims tried to forget we ever were.

I am Charon the Ferryman. My eternal task is to find lost souls and send them to the Underworld, whether of their free will or kicking and screaming. I sail in my bark of Meseket on an endless ocean until I reach my destination, and then I retrieve what has escaped.
