Fanart of Levistus, artist unknown.


Levistus is the chilly Lord of the Fifth in Baator, his true form has been frozen within the ice of his home plane while his aspect maintains his responsibilities in the Planes. Among the Archdevils he is known as an honorable opponent, and will respect the rules of his duels so long as his opponent does the same. His skill in such duels is celebrated.

Levistus is also known to be purely hate-filled for his fellow Devil, specifically Asmodeus, and he prepares to betray his allies upon his supposedly inevitable escape.
