Halak doesn’t think of himself as an individual, but as an agenda. Many incarnations precede him, but each has been an uncompromising slayer of demons and monsters, a stalwart champion of the heavens.
Many Deva don’t really remember what they were before they were Deva or how it came to be that they took on (quasi)mortal bodies, but Halak is different; his ancient origin almost completely defines his contemporary mindset. Halak was a soldier in Pelor’s angelic host, and under the banner of the sun god Halak fought and won countless battles. He crossed swords with archons in the primordial sea, routed demon armies before heaven’s very doorstep, drove Asmodeus and his twisted followers back into their domain so that they could be justly imprisoned.
But there came a time when the last tumultous war for control of Creation’s status quo was already fought and won, and evil’s power over the mortal realm consisted chiefly of temptation and infiltration, and the angelic hosts had little more to do than stand guard over their gods’ dominions, respond to the occasional ritual summoning, and wait. And Halak, knowing that as an angel he would never be allowed to act in the world directly, became a man. Or a reasonable fascimile of one, anyway. Holding onto Pelor’s blessing even as he shed his immortal form to tie himself to a body of flesh and bone, Halak set off into the world to slay evil. He’s been at it for a long while, now, and giving considerably better than he’s got – if you were to sum his deaths, over the years, and compare them to the deaths he’d caused, he’d come out considerably ahead.
If you were to ask Halak why he does it, he’d tell you it’s his duty to slay evil. If you asked him [i]why[/i] he felt the need to slay evil while pointing out at the same time that Halak doesn’t seem to actually care for the people he ostensibly protects, though, you might get him at a loss. Because deep down it’s not really that Halak loves gods or cares for peasants or even particularly hates demons – it’s the love of conflict that drives him, a fierce enjoyment of both supremacy in combat and the knowledge that his justification for [i]engaging[/i] in combat is wholly unimpeachable. So as much as having to sleep and eat annoys him, as much as mortal art and mortal music offend his angelic taste, Halak enjoys being embodied, because it gives him something to [i]do[/i].
Halak serves the legions as a warrior and, more importantly, witch hunter. Plenty of people are good with a sword, but when mummies come marching out of long-sealed tombs or someone breaks the wrong amulet in half and unleashes a sleeping demon, Halak’s on the scene.
