Atropals are stillborn godlings who have spontaneously risen as undead. A foul aura surrounds the Abomination, snuffing out weaker life and draining the souls of those near it. When one rises the Gods cringe and seal them in tombs for all time. But sometimes the barriers are broken and one is freed to wreak havoc on the multiverse.
Unlike most other Abominations however, an Atropal is closer to divinity than most realize making its far harder to kill. If its proper form is slain but its body not completely destroyed, its remaining flesh can reform into a Atropal Scion to furthur its goals of widespread death and destruction.
