Zatch Bell! OC's - Spirit World Deities Picture

These characters from a different world are my new Zatch Bell! original characters that appears in the Revolution from the Dead arc (Chapters 15-4 to 15-12 and Remake: Ch. 17 to 22) of my Golden Gash!!: Demon Revolution Army fan fiction. The Four Great Demon Lords of the Netherworld serve as antagonists for the Revolution from the Dead arc while everyone else serves as supporting characters.

For more information on these characters including their history and powers: zatchbell.wikia.com/wiki/User:…

Paradise
Paradise (天国, Tengoku, also translates to "Heaven") is a holy realm in the Spirit World where all good demons go to after death. In Paradise, good demons have their freedom but there are a few laws that demons need to follow (otherwise they will head down to Spirit World Kingdom). Demons can view Demon World and Human World from Paradise.

Paradise is not only inhabited by good demons, but also angels and archangels who are native to Paradise. Spirit World Magic that is taught in Paradise is blessing (恵, megumi), white Spirit World magic, and all angels and archangels can use them. Demon souls with a good-pure heart may also be able to learn blessing (as demon magic is restricted outside Demon World) but even with a good-pure heart, it is difficult for demons to master blessing. Archdemons are weak against blessing.

Spirit World Kingdom
Spirit World Kingdom (霊界の王国, Reikai no Ōkoku) is the main, neutral, but divine realm of Spirit World. All demons that die come to the Spirit World Kingdom and are to be judged at Spirit World's Palace of Judgment by the Supreme God of Spirit World. If a demon soul has done more good deeds than evil deeds, the demon soul may ascend to Paradise (天国, Tengoku) or stay in Spirit World Kingdom. If a demon soul has done no good deed nor evil deed or is balanced out between good and evil deeds (with little or no differences), the demon soul stays in Spirit World Kingdom until they do certain deeds that will cause them to get transferred to another realm. If an evil demon has done more evil deeds than good deeds, the demon soul is taken down to the Netherworld (冥界, Meikai) across Spirit World's Bridge.

If a dead demon living in Spirit World Kingdom does good deeds, they have the option to ascend to Paradise or continue living in Spirit World Kingdom. If a dead demon living in Spirit World Kingdom breaks Spirit World Kingdom's laws, if they are light, they will be sentenced to Spirit World Kingdom's Prison for a certain amount of time. If the crimes are severe, they will taken down to the Netherworld and won't be brought back up to Spirit World Kingdom for a very long time or perhaps never.

Spirit World Kingdom is not only inhabited by neutral demons, but also nephalems and archnephalems who are native to Spirit World Kingdom. Spirit World Magic that is taught in the Kingdom is æther (霊気, reiki, known as "ether" in the first/outdated storyline of my fan fiction), which is divine gray Spirit World magic, and some nephalems, archangels, and archdevils can use them too while archnephalems specializes in them. Nephalems can also utilize blessings and curses.

Netherworld
The Netherworld (冥界, Meikai, also translates to "Underworld" and "Hades") is an infernal realm in the Spirit World where all evil demons (mamodos) go to after death. In the Netherworld, demons lose their freedom. From time to time, demons would face random tortures at random times even when unexpected. Evil demons must be respectful down here, otherwise the Great Demon Lords of the Netherworld would torture them personally for all eternity. If a demon happens to die from torture in the Netherworld, they will eventually respawn somewhere else in the Netherworld.

The Netherworld is inhabited by evil demonic creatures called devils (悪魔, akuma) [remade storyline only, as they aren't in the original storyline] and archdevils (大悪魔, dai akuma, known as "archdemons" in the first/original storyline). Type of magic devils and archdemons/archdevils use in the Netherworld are curses (呪, noroi), black Spirit World magic. It is possible for an evil demon with a pure evil heart to learn Spirit World curses but it's difficult and devils/archdevils are not willing to teach them since devils and archdevils were born to torture sinful demon souls.

The Netherworld was created by Hades (former name "Pluto"), a fallen archangel who originated from Paradise. Hades assembled the Four Great Demon Lords (四大魔王, Shi Daimaō) of the Netherworld, archdevils (or archdemon in the original storyline) each having one of the seven deadly sins or two. Hades also created Cerberus to be the Gate Guardian of the Netherworld so demons won't try to escape unless authorized.

Author Notes
I will eventually draw Netherworld King Hades/Pluto and Cerberus (well, you could obviously tell what Cerberus would look like if you know Greek mythology). And when I draw my other new supporting characters (that lives somewhere else in Spirit World), I might add them to this picture rather than uploading them as a new picture and rename this picture as "Zatch Bell! OC's - Spirit World Beings" or something.

UPDATE #1 (December 11, 2014, 3:37 a.m. EST): Fixing Hades/Pluto's information.
UPDATE #2 (December 20, 2014, 8:20 a.m. EST): Changing the title from "Zatch Bell! OC's - Netherworld's Archdemons" to "Zatch Bell! OC's - Spirit World Deities" as I am also including my new OC's from Paradise and Spirit World Kingdom of Spirit World too.
UPDATE #3 (December 22, 2014, 12:18 a.m. EST): Editing Mercury's and Hades' personality (I matched part of Mercury's personality wrong with his title).
UPDATE #4 (December 25, 2014, 4:19 p.m. EST): Adding a drawing of Saturn. I also added a few more shading to Mars.
UPDATE #5 (January 4, 2015, 9:21 p.m. EST): Adding a drawing of Cerberus. Also changing Yama/Hades' second occupation from "God of Spirit World" to "Supreme God of Spirit World" since the arch-beings are gods/deities (I might as well fix that in my fan fiction). And upscaling Leviasatan a little bit (he looked small).
UPDATE #6 (January 4, 2015, 9:38 p.m. EST): No update to image. Just updating the Spirit World description in this description box.
UPDATE #7 (January 13, 2015, 11:56 p.m. EST): Adding a drawing of Jupiter, King of Paradise.
UPDATE #8 (January 15, 2015, 12:17 a.m. EST): Adding a drawing of Hades (Pluto), King of the Netherworld and Jupiter's brother. I pretty much just edit my drawing of Jupiter to make Hades. I also upscaled a few characters (specifically the archdemons) and extended the references for Yama and Cerberus.
UPDATE #9 (January 17, 2015, 12:17 a.m. EST): Adding a drawing of Yama (Enma), King of Spirit World Kingdom and Supreme God of Spirit World. Again, a copy/paste of my drawing of Jupiter but I changed the angle of Yama's head. I just wanted to be done drawing these gods. The design of Yama's cape says "Yama" (यम in Sanskrit languages) repeatedly while the green logo of his shirt says "Enma" (Japanese: 閻羅). My design of Yama/Enma is based on the designs of King Enma from Dragon Ball Z/GT/Kai and Yū Yū Hakusho.
UPDATE #10 (March 18, 2015, 6:43 p.m. EDT): Changed Lucid's curse attribute from Swords to Strengthening.
UPDATE #11 (February 15, 2016, 11:23 a.m. EST): Changed "archdemon" to "archdevil" since I renamed that race to archdevil in my remade storyline, but they are still known as archdemon in the first/outdated storyline.
UPDATE #12 (May 25, 2016, 9:42 p.m. EDT): Added a new god: Neptune, the God of the Sea! He appears in my remade storyline (Chapter 20a, but was indirectly mentioned in Chapter 19b) as a resident of Spirit World Kingdom (previously a resident of Paradise) and the brother of Jupiter and Pluto "Hades". Also removed "Spear" attribute from Mars since there are no "Spear Blessings" and removed Lucid's Strengthening attribute since he has a variety of darkness blessings/curses (he possesses blessings in my remade storyline). Also renaming Necromancy attribute to Soul attribute and Space attribute to Dimension attribute.
UPDATE #13 (June 25, 2016, 11:56 p.m. EDT): Renaming ether to æther and giving Neptune water æther. I didn't change Saturn's Spirit World magic type from blessing to blessing/æther since the only known æther he has is dimensional portal. And the reason why I didn't change a certain archdevil's magic type to *censor* is to prevent spoilers in my fan fiction remake (though, I'll draw that one archdevil's alternate form separately).

Character bases and tutorials I used to draw them are:

Paradise
Spirit World Kingdom
Netherworld
And I created the Paradise, Spirit World Kingdom, and Netherworld text in Cooltext.
