First pass doodle of Minoschanosath, one of the five Sovereigns of Chaos. These supernatural beings are ancient demonic creatures as old as the universe itself. They are very powerful and very evil creatures who dwell in the infernal plane (the Azure Wheel equivalent to hell). In the past few billion years, they have had no reason to manifest onto the material plane… but that all changed when the Lifestream came into existence and the creatures of the Azure Wheel began to evolve. Now it is only the power of the Lifestream that keeps these beasts at bay. Few mortals even know of their existence, save for a few insane cults.
Minoschanosath is the Sovereign of Madness, who in my opinion is the most terrifying of the five. Think of him as a mish-mash between Sheogorath from the Elder Scrolls games, Xel’lotath from Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, and the most psychotic serial killer that you can think of.
When he speaks, one hears three different voices talking rather than one. His mere presence is a poison to the mind.
I do have an idea of his appearance in my head. I just need to think of the small details. I’m really not sure what his color scheme is going to be like, but I’d like to stay away from reds because I feel they’re too cliche.
I’d really like to do something with the sovereigns in my stories, but like with many other things, they’re taking a seat on the backburner. Maybe I’ll end up doing something with the cults that worship them instead.
