Axis of Evil
The Axis of Evil is the implausible union between the Nine Hells of Baator, the Infinite Layers of the Abyss, and the Grey river of Phlegethon that flows between them. For ages beyond the existence of Azuria the Blood War has divided Tanar’ri, Baatezu, and Yugoloth. And only distant rumors speak of a time before even the Yugoloth when Tanar’ri and Baatezu joined forces. These forgotten stories claim that this union was so foul that the realm of existence itself collapsed in order to begin again.
The Tanar’ri are the demonic forces of the Abyss, a twisted realm of anarchy and slaughter. The Baatezu hail from Baator, a strictly ordered caste system of cruelly viscous devilkin. The Yugoloths from Phlegethon have been known in the past to play both sides against the other, and may be the prime catalyst for this powerful alliance.
The Axis of evil is lead by the three Prime Evils, Asmodeus of Baator, Mydianchlarus of Phlegethon, and Graz’zt of the Abyss.
