Technically, the Lady Fierna rules the fourth layer of the Pit, known as Phlegethos. Most devils know, however, that Belial, her father and the former ruler of the layer, actually runs things from behind the scenes. Fierna has gained a reputation as an insatiable consumerer of males with little care or discrimination. Her father is really no better, quenching his dark needs often with captives, slaves, or other devils. Some say that Fierna and Belial's relationship has been consummated in incestuous ways.

Fierna dwells in a flaming palace of rough rock, deep caverns, and pools of magma. At its heart lie elegant halls of marble and a bejeweled decor. No one except Fierna and her closest companions are allowed here, for this is where her father spends all his time.

Both Fierna and her father are tall, dark humanoids with small horns on their forehead. Both are quite handsome and sexual, with smoldering red eyes. They dress in regal finery. Belial always carries his ranseur, but Fierna never wields a weapon, relying on her flame blade attack.

The symbol that both often use is a pair of red glowing eyes over a horizontally positioned ranseur, with the whole thing circled by a red tail ending in a wicked barb.


The statistics and ability descriptions are for both Belial and Fierna, except where noted. Fierna typically enters battle with fire shield and magic circle against good active. Belial favors his ranseur and goes into a fight with see invisibility, magic circle against good, and unholy aura active.

Fear Aura (Su): As a free action, Belial and Fierna can create an aura of fear in 20-foot radius. It is otherwise identical with fear cast by a 15th-level caster (save DC 42). If the save is successful, that creature cannot be affected again by this fear aura for 24 hourd. Other baatezu are immune to the aura.

Baatezu Traits: Belial and Fierna can communicate telepathically with any creature within 100 feet that has a language. In addition, they can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, even that created by a deeper darkness spell. Belial and Fierna is immune to fire and poison and they each have acid resistance 20 and cold resistance 20.

Regeneration (Ex): Belial and Fierna take normal damage from holy and blessed weapons of at least+4 enchancement.

Posessions: Belial's +4 ranseur is a minor artifact that causes those it strikes to feel wracking pain that drain 2 points of Dexterity. A successful hit also implies -4 penalty on attack rolls, skill checks or ability checks (fort DC 24 negates). The latter effect must be removed by a heal of break enchantment spell.

The Goals of Belial/Fierna

Fierna has no interest in ruling, gaining power, or taking part in the complicated politics of hell. Instead, she is much more interested in taking advantage of her position and wealth to live an existence of comfort and pleasure. Thus, she is not at all resentful that her father actually does all the "work" and she simply says what he warns her to.

Belial was the enemy to Geryon and Moloch, both of whom were deposed in the Reckoning. He also hates Mammon. However, he currently has his sights set on the fifth and sixth layers of hell.. He feels that if he can overcome Levistus, the Hag Countess will be easily defeated soon after. Belial has been an ally of Baalzebul over the centuries even through the Reckoning. They keep their relationship more of a secret nowadays, but Belial would come to Baalzebul's side if he needed him. Should this ever happen, however, Mephistopheles would probably attempt to use Fierna against her father - either as an ally or, if that is impossible, a hostage.

The Servants of Belial/Fierna

Gazra is Fierna's constant companion and consort. While she luxuriates in magma-filled pools, he goes about many of the mundane affairs of state that she ignores. Levistus- through his servants-has attempted to convert Gazra to his camp on many occasions. Eventually, the pit fiend might indeed succumb to the temptations offered by Levistus. For now, he is loyal to Fierna. Should she ever turn her affections from him, however, things could change. Gazra is jealous and hateful toward Belial, but he keeps those feelings hidden.
