The Helborne grew quickly. His existence kept an absolute secret from Kendril and the rest of the inhabitants of Hell. Through the Son’s dark magic they veiled themselves form the rest of existence. None would know of their maniacal plans until it was too late. For 30 years they trained the Helborne in all the dark arts they even enlisted the services of the master demon sorcerer known as Spectral Damas, a loyal follower of Belial when he was in power. Spectral Damas taught the Helborne the art of the extraordinary Fire Rings an art the sorcerer had honed to razor like precision. Spectral Damas also cast various spells upon the Helborne causing his skin to constantly burn so that no mortal might touch him. The sorcerer also gifted the Helborne with the ability to emit various fatal diseases that would infect a mere man and kill him in a matter of minutes so no mortal could even approach the dark creature let alone stand against him. The Helborne would never have to fear the light for the light would flee from him, it could not exist in his presence. He was also trained in the battle techniques of many different races and he grew quicker and stronger than any creature living. – from Mysticism: the Genesis of Ethrilan.
