Rifts®: Megaversal Highway™
Pazal – NPC Antagonist
Archetype: Despicable Villain.
Alignment: Aberrant (evil).
Motivation: Acquire the seven Gates so the Old Ones do not stir from their slumber and upset the political climate of Hades.
Disposition: As himself Pazal is something of a detestable backstabber as well as being a well-known coward and failure. His past short-comings and failures have made him something of a laughing stock to most other powerful demons in Hades and it is something of a sore point with him. Pazal still considers himself above mortals and lesser demons. Pazal lacks the natural charm and/or good looks of many on his kin and must rely entirely upon his cunning and magic to deceive his pray.
Age: Ancient, though rather young by Raksasha standards.
Height: 1-10 feet, the demon can magically alter is size within this range as desired. However, his natural height is 6.3 feet.
Weight: 700 pounds.
Appearance: Pazal is a rather unremarkable physical specimen, especially by Raksasha standards.
