A Duke of Dis, Building an Iron Cage


Alocer has a humanoid body with red-gold flesh and a fearsome leonine head, something like a fiendish leonal in appearance. The fiery flash of his eyes can be seen from some distance, and he can use this trait to blind his opponents.

Alocer is the Lion of Hell, a baatezu noble in the service of Dispater, leading 36 companies of erinyes (333 devils to a company) into battle. He wears plate mail and fights with broadsword, axe, mace, and dagger.

The Lords of the Nine agreed to let Alocer run the Disigil project, which has been his obsession for centuries. He murdered Krell just before the ring was completed, and now struggles to persuade his masters to continue the project. His minions search for more labor, more treasures to pay for the work, and for the true secret of the Lady of Pain.

He is served by Betzalel, who manages his mortal accomplices, and by the pit fiend Echarus, who is in charge of guarding the Iron Cage. One of his erinyes soldiers, Sauraphine, bore Lady Margone.

Alocer wishes to become Lord of his Iron Cage. He knows that his position grows more tenuous with each passing day, and will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started.

Alocer first appeared in Dragon #75.
