Baal Picture

I form the light and create darkness
I bring prosperty and create disaster
I form the light and create darkness
I make weal and create sadness

Another drawing from my latest sketchbook regarding the CUETZPALIN Mythos. This is Baal Hadad, (Baal is a title which means "Lord", and has been previously used for other individuals, before becoming a proper name for his own) a Remotely controlled body/avatar of the formless Ohrmuz, the "Macabraic" Spirit of Light. The Macabraics are nine elemental usurper gods, and among them, Ohrmuz has practically taken the lead, especially after the victory of the Frashokeretian Alliance Nations in the "Topakhon Wars", a century-lasting conflict with the Ors Ohorela, headed by the fellow Macabraic of Darkness, Tupaq, the Primordial Vovin, between the 1st to 12th Centuries after the birth of the Centzonmimixcoa (29th to 17th Centuries before Iesu).

Known by most (even by his "Macabraic fellows", except perhaps for Hydros) as if his horned body is his original one, Ohrmuz actually has had several other remotely controlled bodies, such as Anshar, Zeus, Thor, and also taken other beings as hosts, such as Ardashir I. His original presence lies mainly in the homonym artificial plan (a land called as Media before being called Ohrmuz, inhabited by the Medean Empire before the Ohrmuzdian one), and he's been the main responsible for the development of the aethereal kind of the Djinn in the now destroyed planet of Eden, before bringing his invention to the plan of Ohrmuz. Although the Djinn can be defeated by the shadowy Centzonmimixcoa, the children of Tupaq, they're powerful allies to all other 'baalites' (an ancient term for the vertebrates), and can also control legions of vertebrates simply with the power of their minds, besides reading the minds of other vertebrates, in the case of the most powerful Djinn. Such is the case of the six Amesha Spentas, six fractions of Ohrmuz himself, who have spent centuries unfolding the secrets of his brothers, preventing that they rise in power, so that he heads his will over others, and not otherwise. Gifted with the thunder and the most powerful of the willpowers, Ohrmuz doesn't go short on strategies of power and assimiling the will of possible enemies into his own, his sovereignty over the dimension of matter and energy lies with the Ten Muses, immortal beings hidden throughout time. His secrets, unknown even to his fellow gods, leaves him invincible.

His raging weapon is Verethragna, a 'Xiuhcoatl weapon' replicated by the Ohrmuzdian Djinn out from the Sharur, an elder Xiuhcoatl weapon originally crafted by the Ahuitzotl from Aztlán's underworld for a pack of Anunnaki explorers in the 5th Century before the development of the Centzonmimixcoa (34th Century before Iesu). He used to have an array of other weapons that have been stolen by Ymir, the Macabraic Spirit of Cold.

Ohrmuz has planned throughout ages for his ascension as the only god, and has been the main mind behind the oldest forms of monotheist cults in the galaxy. Specialized in legitimating deceit and corruption, the Light God from the upper heavens has always moved masses against selected would-be-foes, and has succeeded in automating the minds of most baalites so that their very limited communicative abilities always tend to make them side with his plans (it's said for example that it was Zeus who cut the humans' previous ability to communicate with the other sentient beings. And it was U Kux Kah, the heart of the skies, that has blinded the first K'iché in the Popol Vuh so that they could not "see like the gods"). By defining a common sense of what is evil and darkness, the light god has ultimately defined a common sense for what is light and goodness, in a way that all the complex aspects of life are limited to a single one, in which only him can win. But let not his thunder and light blind you, he's not, as no one is, indeed, truly good and selfless, he just wants your soul (and it makes no difference at all, in a way it's already his). He's also not all-powerful, despite what he makes people believe, at least not yet, not until the Frashokereti, the final automation, does happen.

Among those who either bravely or stupidly openly defy him there is Typhon, who, thirsting for a rematch, also seeks to take the Trident from Baal's brother, the Sea God, and with it put an end to his reign of light, throwing the universe of matter and energy into Chaos and the Light God into a state of eternal slavery.

The text from the beginning of the description is a part of the lyrics of the song Rege Diabolicus, by Rotting Christ, released on the album "Theogonia" in 2007. It's inspired in God's speech from the book of Isaiah, verse 45, as he annoints the Persian King Cyrus, who was tolerant with the religion of the Israelites, for the known reason that their monotheist religion shares many similarities with that of the Persians themselves. Despite what roman, medieval and modern christianity tries to imply, even God acknowledges his ability of doing evil, for there is no way one can be absolutely good nor evil, no matter how liar, proud or greedy the one is, like 'God' himself.
