The one who decides the fate of all, even gods themselves, is I, the harbinger of judgement.
~ Exermis (Male) to Silvia Bortre

Background

Long ago, Exermis was once an ordinary human, but they have long forgotten their past life and their true identity. Establishing a new identity in Purgatory where they were sent to once they passed through Limbo and the Afterlife after their death as a human. Once they arrived in Purgatory, the corruption field of Purgatory began to gradually eat away at their mentality, nearly dooming them to become a mindless demon which roams Purgatory. The King of Purgatory, Astroa, brought them back from the brink of corruption once they realized the potential Exermis had, wiping away their past memories and entitling them to their rank as lead commander and general of the demon army. Astroa had replaced their memories of false ones and replaced them with memories of loyalty to them, taking on the role of Exermis’s “brother”.

Exermis soon became the most powerful demon that exists in Purgatory, being feared as a “war god” even among demons and angels alike, with Astroa being the only one who is capable of succeeding them in power. In the ancient war between Heaven and Purgatory, Exermis managed to invade Heaven and slaughtered several angels and gods. Exermis was known to be extremely relentless in battle, not giving their opponent a moment to even catch their breath and prefers to overwhelm them with raw power and speed.

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Genius Intelligence (Native demons have immensely superior intellect than humans), Aura (Via Aura of Bad Luck), Instinctive Reaction, Magic, Self-Sustenance (All Types), Existence Erasure (Via various methods), Abstract Existence (Type 1 & 2 [Beings that transcend the boundaries of the physical world exist as a purely conceptual essence which exists as a reflection of who they once were, defining the very core of their nature as their "true form". All demons exist as an embodiment of corruption), Acausality (Type 5 [As they exist beyond the concept of time, their fate no longer exists and all alternate possibilities of them retaining their fate are completely nonexistent. This also makes them unaffected by causality entirely]), Avatar Creation (All higher beings are capable of creating lower manifestations as avatars), Reality Warping, Beyond-Dimensional Existence (Type 3 [Purgatory exists in a realm far higher than the Afterlife, existing outside of an infinite number of layers of reality. In which each layer of reality utterly transcends an infinite number of Grand Design "meta-layers", looking down on them and trivializes their existence as a mere work of fiction, existing outside of all narratives, story hierarchies, and all of their extensions regardless of the scale in which they are told]), Large Size (Type 11), Higher-Dimensional Manipulation, Nonexistent Physiology (Type 1 [Beings that transcend the boundaries of the physical world are no longer restricted to any form of material existence. Instead they exist as a purely conceptual essence which exists as a reflection of who they once were, defining the very core of their nature as their "true form"]), Reality Warping, Regeneration (High-Godly [All beings which exist outside of reality layers, such as demons and angels, are able to recover from complete conceptual destruction, being considered only a mere "inconvenience" to them. As all conceptual information is found in the Conceptual Void, they are capable of regenerating from their mere thoughts alone by extracting their own conceptual information to repair themselves]), Immortality (Types 1, 5, & 8; 9 for lower manifestations [No longer ages as they exist beyond the concept of time entirely. The concept of life and death bears no meaning to those who have transcended the physical world, as they exist solely as metaphysical beings which do not have a concept of life and death. Can never truly die as The Author will just insert them back, regardless of the type of damage that was caused. Lower manifestations of demons are merely avatars as their true selves exist in Purgatory]), Non-Corporeal (They exist solely as a disembodied consciousness as a reflection of who they once were), Immersion (By being able to create avatars, higher beings are able to insert themselves into any narrative or story hierarchy they please), Subjective Reality (All beings which exist beyond all reality layers can overturn fiction into reality, yet are not affected by what becomes "real"), Transduality (Type 4 [All beings which exist beyond all reality layers are completely transcendent to all dualities, including the duality of fiction and nonfiction and are immune to what they deem as "real" as a result of this]), Soul Manipulation (Capable of ripping out the souls of beings. Removed the soul of a god to stop their revival cycle), Fire Manipulation (All demons are capable of manipulating the flames of Purgatory), Lightning Manipulation (Capable of using unholy lightning in various ways), BFR, Black Hole Creation, Counterspelling (Can reflect any magic back at the caster and disable magical barriers), Kinetic Energy Manipulation (Capable of nullifying the kinetic energy of physical attacks), Dimensional Storage, Durability Negation with several abilities, Duplication (They are able to make multiple physical clones of themselves, all of which have an equivalent level of power.

This death destroys the target's concept of 'living' rather than a conventional death.

This curse remains even if the one that uses it is defeated), Immortality Negation (Type 3, 4 & 5 [Via Death Curse]), Regeneration Negation (High-Godly [Every purgatory demon is capable of utilizing the hellish flames of Purgatory that cause excruciating pain to the target and completely nullifies regeneration at a conceptual level which erases the existence of their literal character concept from the story itself]), Resistance to Curse Manipulation (Demons cannot be cursed, even by higher beings due to their nature), Fire Manipulation (Demons are fully immune to all forms of fire, even the hellish flames in Purgatory), Gravity Manipulation (Gravity has no influence on higher beings whatsoever), Soul Manipulation (Demons do not have a soul), Corruption (All demons exist as an embodiment of corruption, therefore they are unaffected by any form of corruption that may affect them), Causality Manipulation, Fate Manipulation, Probability Manipulation, and Time Manipulation (Via Acausality) and immense resistance to Plot Manipulation (All beings which exist outside of reality layers, such as demons and angels, exist outside of all narratives, story hierarchies, and all of their extensions. As such, they do not exist in any form of narrative or plotline, so even the concept of being part of a plot does not apply to them at all. Due to this, even inferior beings such as demons and angels are completely immune to even the Judgement Circle's plot manipulation, as demons and angels do not participate in the concept of "being part of a story", even if the Judgement Circle has vastly higher authority and status)

All previous powers plus Attack Reflection and Damage Transferal (Retribution is able to passively repel the full extent of damage an attack is capable of causing back at the user, regardless if the attack was physical, mental, or conceptual, and if no damage was actually dealt to Exermis. The target will also suffer any additional effects the attack is able to cause), Breaking the Fourth Wall (Completely aware of the reader's existence), Nigh-Omniscience, Conceptual Manipulation (Type 1 [All members of the Judgement Circle are capable of gathering conceptual information and weave it into concepts from the Conceptual Void]), Creation (Capable of creating physical realms, establish laws, different laws of physics, and new concepts inside reality layers whenever they please), Physics Manipulation (Capable of bending the laws of physics and create new laws of physics at will inside their stories), Fate Manipulation (They can freely manipulate the fate of others by simply rewriting the script of reality layers. This method to manipulate fate acts alongside plot manipulation, completely bypassing conventional resistance to fate manipulation and acausality), Law Manipulation (By establishing a new "self-existence", Exermis was capable of completely bypassing the Law of Balance and completely overpowering Libra), Plot Manipulation (Beings in the Temple of the Supreme are capable of freely manipulating the reality layers below them without any limit), Text Manipulation (Manipulated the text the viewer was reading)

All previous powers plus Omnipresence and Omniscience

Attack Potency: Low Outerverse level for physical manifestations (Stated to be capable of causally crushing the entire physical world in the grasp of their hand, and even threatened to do so. Immensely superior to the Seven Demon Overlords' manifestations and even managed to terrify Charon with their mere presence alone). High Outerverse level with weapons and powers (Due to their higher nature, all weapons and powers they previously had in Purgatory are stated to be just as dangerous in the physical world) | High Outerverse level (Feared as the second most powerful demon that exists in Purgatory, capable of holding their their own against several of the gods in that exist in Heaven. Managed to causally defeat all Seven Demon Overlords simultaneously with ease) | At least High Outerverse level, likely Boundless (Escaped the realm they were banished to, manifested to the Temple of the Supreme and eventually became the most powerful member of the Judgement Circle and soon earned the title "God(dess) of Punishment". Stated to be capable of overpowering Libra and is capable of ignoring the law they embody, as Exermis established a new "self-existence" which is capable of completely bypassing the Law of Balance) | Boundless (As they reached the world of The Author and took over, they became almost indistinguishable to them. They now fully transcends all reality layers, unlike demons, angels, and those in the Temple of the Supreme who merely exist outside of reality layers. As such, they are completely transcendent to even the Temple of the Supreme and all of the beings who thrive there. Exermis became capable of deleting all of their stories they have previously written in an instant, refreshing the entire verse into a new beginning. However, the true Author is stated to exist in a realm that is even higher than what was originally believed)

Speed: Immeasurable for physical manifestations (Stated to be the fastest being to ever appear in the physical world. Exermis has been shown to be capable of traveling from the Material World all the way to the Underside in an instant with a single, swift movement and suddenly appearing behind Charon, completely blitzing past their perspective and terrifying them whenever they appeared) | Irrelevant (Easily one of the fastest demons to exist in Purgatory, being capable of blitzing most of the gods in Heaven according to their background lore. Causally blitzed all Seven Demon Overlords while all seven were fighting them at the same time) | Irrelevant (Immensely faster than before and is even superior than Libra, whom stated that even simple movement from Exermis was considered to be instantaneous teleportation in their eyes) | Omnipresent (Described as an all encompassing entity which transcends the very foundation in which all narratives and stories hierarchies can be described, even transcending realms such as Heaven, Purgatory, and the Temple of the Supreme which already lies beyond all narratives and stories hierarchies as they are no longer part of any story)

Lifting Strength: Immeasurable for physical manifestations (Threatened to crush the entire physical world in the grasp of their hand) | Irrelevant (Far superior than most of the other demons in Purgatory, whom of which even the weakest among them are able to effortlessly lift the entire Afterlife in the palm of their hand due to existing in a far higher realm than the Afterlife, with said realm existing beyond all reality layers which define all story hierarchies and narratives) | Irrelevant (Immensely stronger than before, should be outright superior to others in the Temple of the Supreme by being superior to even Libra) | Irrelevant (Lifted several of their books that contains the endless number of worlds they have created)

Striking Strength: Low Outerversal for physical manifestations (Threatened to crush the entire physical world in the grasp of their hand). High Outerversal with weapons and powers (Due to their higher nature, all weapons and powers they previously had in Purgatory are stated to be just as dangerous in the physical world) | High Outerversal (Stated to be the second most powerful demon to exist in Purgatory, held their their own against several of the gods in that exist in Heaven in the past. Causally defeated all Seven Demon Overlords simultaneously with ease) | At least High Outerversal, likely Boundless (Immensely stronger than previously, soon becoming the most powerful member among the Judgement Circle, surpassing even Libra who has the power of literally everyone else in the entire verse, including the other members of the Judgement Circle, combined) | Boundless (Capable of destroying all works The Author has created in the Library of Creation by ripping apart the narrative with their bare hands, as all narratives and story hierarchies are literally nothing more than mere scraps of paper from their perspective)

Durability: Low Outerverse level for physical manifestations (Should be outright superior to even Charon, who was terrified just by their mere presence). High Outerverse level for their true nature (Their true selves exist independently in Purgatory, as lower manifestations are nothing more than mere avatars. Moreover, their abstract, conceptual, nonexistent, and transcendent nature as well as acausality, immortality, regeneration, and immense resistances makes it very difficult for them to be damaged, let alone be truly killed) | High Outerverse level (One of the most durable demons in Purgatory, being able to easily shrug off blows from several of the gods in Heaven. Deflected attacks from the Seven Demon Overlords, and one of their weapons completely shattered when it made contact with Exermis's body) | At least High Outerverse level, likely Boundless (By far one of the most durable members in the Judgement Circle, even superseding Libra whos power is stated to completely dwarf Exermis's power) | Boundless (Completely and utterly transcends all narratives and story hierarchies. Exermis also transcends all reality layers instead of simply existing outside of them, like those in Heaven, Purgatory, and the Temple of the Supreme)

Stamina: Infinite (As a demon, they have no need to eat, sleep, or even breathe) | Infinite| Infinite | Irrelevant

Range: Low Outerversal (Threatened to crush the entire physical world in the grasp of their hand) | High Outerversal (Destroyed sizable portions of area in Heaven and Purgatory during battle) | At least High Outerversal, likely Boundless (Via scaling from Libra, who is capable of manipulating and governing the very core of all stories and hierarchies, regardless of the scale in which they are told. Exermis no longer participates in the Law of Balance, making Exermis superior in range and having even higher authority) | Boundless (Manifested in the Library of Creation, which completely and utterly transcends realms such as Heaven, Purgatory, and the Temple of the Supreme. Views all three of these realms as nothing more than mere scraps of paper)

Intelligence: Supergenius| Nigh-Omniscient (Memorized every action, every thought, every emotion of all creatures and the entire life of every individual in the past in their infinite span of multiverses) | Omniscient (Knows everything that has happen and will happen as they are the author)

Standard Equipment:

  • Angel's Blood: A coat that is lined with the divine blood of an angel. Extremely durable and it is able to repair itself from damage. It also makes the one who wears it highly resistant to holy magic.
  • Longsword
  • Handgun (5.7x28mm rounds)

  • Mortem Rationis: A conceptual weapon which now sees Exermis as its master upon entering the Judgement Circle. This weapon takes the form of a pitch black longsword which will completely erase the conceptual nature of those who it touches, which will remove them from the story entirely. Once a character is erased with this weapon, they are no longer return back as their very character concept no longer exists within the story. Simply trying to even regenerate from a single strike from this weapon will require an absurdly high degree of High-Godly regeneration.

  • Several sheets of paper
  • Writing utensils

Weaknesses:

  • They cannot stand the cold at all, although this is because of their heritage.
  • Although they have no need for rest, they can still get mentally exhausted through boredom.

Notable Techniques/Attacks:

Purgatory Flames.jpg
Every Purgatory Demon is capable of utilizing black flames that cause excruciating pain to the target and completely nullifies regeneration at a conceptual level (High-Godly). However, it should be noted that these flames do not burn the target, but instead deal damage on a conceptual level which erases the existence of their literal character concept from the story itself. These flames are also stated to only be able to put out via anti-magic. Demons and angels however are shown to be immune to this ability, as it only works on those that do not exist outside story hierarchies and narratives.
  • Anyone who manages to learn this ability must exist outside story hierarchies or narratives or have an absolutely absurd degree of resistance to plot manipulation, otherwise their very character concept will immediately be erased due to how this ability works.

Unholy Lightning.png
This ability can be labeled as Exermis's main ability. Exermis is capable of utilizing black-red lightning in various ways against an opponent. This can range from restraining a target in lightning bindings, deal continuous damage, or just downright killing them. This lightning has been shown to be incredibly lethal to divine beings, such as angels. As with Purgatory Flames, demons are completely immune to this lightning and it deals conceptual damage to its target. Unholy lightning can only be dispelled by anti-magic.
  • Restrain: Exermis uses unholy lightning bindings to wrap around the opponent's body to retrain them. Simply trying to move when restrained by these bindings will immediately deal extreme damage to the target.
  • Degrade: Exermis can cause unholy lightning to course throughout an opponent's body, dealing continuous damage over time, this is also able to be paired with Restrain to cause continuous damage while the opponent is nearly helpless.
  • Terminate: An extremely powerful bolt of unholy lightning directly strikes a target, dealing immense damage and conceptually destroys their existence. Exermis prefers to first restrain their target, and then execute them using this ability.
  • Spellblade: Exermis enchants their weapon with unholy lightning, causing their physical attacks deal conceptual damage. Whenever their weapon makes contact, it may transfer this lightning into the opponent's body and deal continuous damage like Degrade does.

The aura of any type of demon can passively curse a target in their vicinity to have terrible luck for all eternity. This curse will also spread rapidly from target to target like an out-of-control infection.

Native demons can plant a deadly curse which instantly kills a target within a minute. This death actually destroys the target's concept of 'living' rather than a conventional death. The death that is caused by this curse cannot be reversed either, even by High-Godly regeneration, resurrection, reincarnation, or time reversal. This curse remains even if the one that used it is defeated.

Exermis is capable of creating physical clones of themselves. All of these clones have an equivalent degree of power to the original, and are able to use the same abilities with the same degree of potency, including making clones of themselves as well. All abilities also have the same effects, such as their own Purgatory Flames nullifying High-Godly regeneration, Aura of Bad Luck spreading throughout all targets in their vicinity, and Death Curse causing instant conceptual death within a minute.

Exermis is capable of reflecting any magic back at the caster and can disable magical barriers.

Dimensional Crush.gif
Exermis is capable of crushing spatial dimensions into lower dimensions, and they are even capable of crushing the entire physical world as they even threatened to do so. Dimensional Crush is considered to be one of their weaker abilities however, but it is still remains a very powerful ability to have.

Quantum Collapse.gif
By converting matter into energy, they can cause a chain reaction that converts all matter and structures inside existence into pure a stable energy at immense speeds. Everything that is consumed is transformed into a "perfect vacuum", in which no form of matter is capable of existing within it.

Beings who exist beyond the physical world are capable of manifesting into lower-dimensional worlds as avatars. During this manifestation, their physiology still remains equal to their true selves, so a manifestation is just as durable and powerful as their actual nature.

RetributionRL.png
Anyone that attacks Exermis will also take full damage that the attack is able to cause, regardless if the attack was physical, mental, or conceptual, and if no damage was actually dealt to Exermis. The target will also suffer any additional effects the attack is able to cause. Is able to be paired with Self Multiplication in that any attack used against a clone will still affect the user.

Inherited directly from Libra. All other laws must abide by the Law of Balance, thus they can manipulate any and all other laws, regardless of what they may dictate. This can be used to change how an opponent's abilities work by manipulating the very fundamental nature on how such abilities even function in the first place, even attacks on a conceptual level.

They have absolute power over their stories; will be superior to all who enter them, as they will be akin scraps of paper to them.

Notes:

  • Their personality changes depending on which gender they are currently.

Feats:

  • Terrified Charon with their mere presence alone and capable of easily blitzing past their perception.
  • Effortlessly curbstomped the Seven Demon Overlords simultaneously.
  • Capable of merging another fictional world into another, combining their histories.
  • Split multiple timelines in half, and even altered the history of them.
  • Took over as the author of the verse, although they were a "fictional" character.
  • Completely destroyed The Author's stories in the Library of Creation and reset the entire verse.
  • Created multiple stories, all of which contain an infinite number of reality layers inside them.

Trivia:

  • Exermis (Female) accidentally published a yuri novel online, only for it to get an novel award in 2089.
  • Exermis shares 2.61% of their DNA with succubi.
  • Although they're a demon, their abilities are more akin to an angel's than to a demon's, having mostly holy magic and being highly resistant to it, thus giving them the title "The Holy Demon".
