Also known as the Outcast Prince, the Gatekeeper, the Broken Beast

Those who swear themselves to Chernobog swear their souls for all eternity, thinking that it somehow the creature has some means of shielding them from Hell that goes against the natural order of things. In reality, they become vessels to the Gatekeeper, bound by the accords of the Book of Black Passages, sworn to allow entrance to any demon that seeks to enter the world. They become students of the Book and learn the ceremonies of entrance and summoning, each night prepared for the possibility that they might be called upon to allow the spawn of hell entrance into the world. These are acts of the absolute abhorrence and to be found enacting them is punishable by death. For that reason, those that enact these rites are either subtle and careful concealing them, or ruthless against anyone who might find them. They have sworn to Chernobog that they will not allow the whispers of idle tongues from those who do not comprehend the truth of the Gatekeeper's methods. They only even trust their brothers sparingly.
