Special Rites: Most of Andrealphus' advanced Rites

Marou has spent a long time crawling back up from the bottom. She's a respected and accomplished Servitor who runs a vast network of sex services that stretches from Earth to Shal-Mari. She's only been "in business" for about a century, though her broad range of Songs and skills hints at much greater experience. Old-timers in Andrealphus' court know Marou's history, but if any younger demons learn her secret, they'd best not bring it up in her presence.

Marou was one of the most successful seductresses in history. She's one of the original Fallen -- she loved Andrealphus, former Archangel of Love, so much that she followed him to Hell. She was once a Countess, and far more powerful than she is today. She had an impressive track record, specializing in the seduction of Soldiers of God, Saints and even an occasional angel . . . as well as Andre's diabolical rivals. She's even appeared twice in the Bible -- Delilah and Salome were both Roles of hers.

When she had the opportunity to sleep with the Darkest of Dark Lords himself, of course she took it. Andrealphus would hardly have faulted her for that, nor for taking the opportunity to ask of Lucifer a boon. And if she'd asked for any lesser Word she probably would have gotten it.

But Marou asked for the Word of Seduction. This struck Lucifer as arrogant . . . as if she presumed to believe she had seduced him! And it struck Andrealphus as overly-ambitious -- indeed, with the Word of Seduction, she might have become a rival to the Prince of Lust himself.

Because she had been one of Andrealphus' most favored Servitors, he did not destroy her. He merely stripped her of her Distinctions, her attunements, her special Rites and many of her Forces, and threw her into the lowest brothel in Shal-Mari. She spent centuries on her knees, but slowly she worked her way into more upscale venues, and eventually reached management level.

When she seduced a Baron of Gluttony and uncovered a plot to take over a Tether of Lust, Andrealphus let her return to Earth, for the first time in over a thousand years, to foil the scheme. Her success marked the end of her long exile, though she hasn't regained Andrealphus' favor entirely.

Marou is now in charge of the administrative aspects of most of Andrealphus' Earthly operations. Actual command decisions are made mostly by higher-ranking Word-bound Servitors, but Marou knows more about the entire organization, and the locations of all Andrealphus' Tethers, than any other demon. This gives her great influence, and a list of contacts and favors to rival any Lilim's.

Secretly, Marou still yearns for the Word of Seduction. Her long-term goal is to seduce an Archangel . . . the one thing she believes might cause Lucifer to reconsider her petition. She knows very well how improbable this is . . . but Marou has learned nothing if not patience.
