Duke of the Cruel Flame

  Nazzon is one of the two Elemental Lords serving Huofeng, the Spirit King of Fire. He embodies the more negative and evil connotations of Huofeng's portfolio, and is commonly seen as the patron saint of cruelty, ruthless flame, war, and tyranny. He preaches that those who are not tempered by cruelty, by blood, and by violence will not be strong enough to survive the ordeals their lives hold in store for them, so to brutalize and demoralize another creature is merely the first step to encourage them to something better.   He preaches that power is synonymous with law, and that it is on the battlefield and through violence that power is displayed, and thus where law is spread. War is the foremost way to unify and bring order, and so his followers and Saints generally believe some variation of this, encouraging war and violence as a means of unity and achieving order and law. He does not preach butchery or slaughter; all he teaches is done to teach others that life cannot be lived without power - to lack it is to be subject to the whims of fate and others who would seek harm upon you. Power should be sought no matter the cost in agony or suffering so that one can become a roaring inferno that cannot be snuffed out no matter the strength of the gale life throws at them.   He thusly is the embodiment of the selfish desires of his Spirit King Huofeng, a living manifestation of fire's selfish, cruel nature and its tendency to be a helpful thing even though it can run rampant and cause untold suffering in the process. Though it may bring warmth, heat, and good things, fire can often come at a terrible cost and can burn and scorch those who would seek to use it - and that is what Nazzon embodies, and why he teaches selfish accumulation of power - so that one might be strong enough to achieve what THEY want, and withstand all that comes at them. The means are of no consequence to Nazzon - even if cities are razed in the process, if the end result is an absolute unifying power, that is just and desirable.
