imageJ'keth, the First Perronele;
First Circle Demon

J'keth was the first perronele ever created, and Lucien never even knew he existed. Near the end of the primordial war the grat solar general Sails on Seas of Blood dueled Lucien. The battle waged for hours but finally the Sun King stood triumphant over Lucien's seven dead bodies and one living bloodied husk. Rather than rain down the final blow Sail on Seas of Blood chose to use the demon as a message. He drew forth a starmetal dagger and skinned the demon alive, using medicinal charms to ensure that Lucien could neither sleep nor die. He then left the demon in the fields of battle, where the Guardian of Sleep took his first pained and prophetic slumbers. When he awoke, the skin was gone. Lucien assumed it had been stolen by the solar who tortured him, with neither side knowing J'keth had been born that day.

Now the first perronele lends his services to powerful sorcerers and warriors, preferring those who work for Hell but enver those who work for Cecelyne. He feels abandoned by Lucien and though he is not out for revenge, he sees all of Cecelyne's bloodline as transgressors and believes the laws should be rewritten.

Other Notes: A perronele suffers from a two-die internal Awareness penalty when it has no visible sensory organs manifested. It can manifest such organs anywhere on its surface, but doing so makes spotting the demon much easier (two extra dice to [Perception + Awareness] checks made to do so).

The being wearing a peronelle enjoys the demon’s soak atop his own. There is no mobility penalty from wearing the demon. Attacks that get through the peronelle’s armor inflict damage on the demon (as well as its host if it gets through that being’s soak as well).
