Angels and Demons
"I. Never. Cheat."
DEMON OF THE SECOND CIRCLE, INDULGENT SOUL OF THAT WHICH WEARS DOWN THE MOUNTAINS.
Those who call Sigereth are greeted to the sight of a hairless young man, inhumanly slim, bearing a box carved of red jade and Hrotsvitha’s brass. This youth is but a puppet—his heart does not beat, he neither breathes nor dreams, and when struck by weapons, his wounds ooze a milk-white sap. The wise summoner lays his binding on the box the boy carries, for the box itself is Sigereth, who is among the most brilliant gamesters in the demon realm. Her voice, a haughty and lubricious contralto, rises from the box as if wending out of the depths of a seashell. She contains in her depths every game ever played in Creation and Malfeas. Her pieces and dice are her bones, and her boards and cards are her flesh, all of which pulse with her blood and breath.
Those who play one another at the games of Sigereth may wager anything they possess: physical property, pledges of action or even friendships, skills, memories and dreams. One may also play against Sigereth herself, with her puppet moving the pieces on her behalf. Of course, she may decide to make the game more… tangible.
Our adventurers met and bested Sigereth at Wu-Jian’s Cat House, hoping to draw of her vast demonic knowledge in order to extract information about “Cirrus”. A demon of her word, she told them a great deal about her orator counterpart, before departing.
