Name: Merihem, the Demon of Pestilence
Personality and Biography: Often mistaken as one of the Four Horsemen, Merihem is instead a higher-ranking demon, responsible for the spreading of plagues and various ills. Like the diseases he spreads, he is both patient and cruel, whispering in the ears of the dying and making them hollow shells of themselves before Death comes for them. Despite this, he admires life and its fleeting beauty. Among humans, he takes the form of a plague doctor, allowing him to see the death he has sowed.
In the war between Heaven and Hell, he uses his potent 'gift' to infect the wounds of angels in his path. Because they cannot die like mortals can, he revels in knowing the suffering it causes them nonetheless.
