Made long ago by the Omnipotent, this being served as his Speaker. He is tasked with spreading the Omnipotent's word throughout the world of mortals. Determined not to interfere in the clash between the sky god and Astral god, he mostly acts as an observer, watching the world play out its own destiny. These days he goes by a different name and occasionally slips into the affairs of skydweller society.


  • Helel ben Sahar is the true identity of the recruitable party member Lucio.
  • Helel ben Sahar is the precursor to Lucilius with the latter being an imperfect copy created for the Astral world.


  • Helel ben Sahar's namesake likely stems from the original Hebrew term for the morning star Helel ben Shahar, the term which was used to build the image of hubris of the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14:4 using Canaanite mythology. The term was eventually transliterated into Lucifer, which became commonly accepted as another name for Satan. The term Helel ben Shahar is said to have only been used once in the entire Old Testament.
  • While noted above that Helel ben Sahar likely stems from its biblical origins, it is unknown if the Sahar is a mistranslation of Shahar as the deity was described or intentionally altered.
  • The introduction of Helel ben Shalem ties him to the god of dawn Shahar, who was the twin brother of the god of dusk Shalim in the Canaanite religion pantheon.
