Terra Cruentus Mythology


Recommended Posts

This is an rather odd concept building some sort of mythology on Terra but with crossover characters from franchises not even associated with horror (and one just obscure). 

Franchises are A Nightmare on Elm Street, Dc Comics, X-Men, and Blood+. Alongside character ripped from Roman and Greek History and some of the original characters from 2005. 


The Beginning


On the grounds of a battlefield, the fresh blood spilled from those who remained nurtured the roots growing underneath. Soon a macabre tree began to form, a tree of metal and iron.


From this arose the age of the Terra Dieties. The Terra Queens who died every Season of the Queen were mere puppets to better harness the power of blood.


Terra Cruentus


Gaia- The first deity of this insidious world. When the roots were nurtured with the blood of war; a spirit either born or slumbering was growing with it. As the Gorewood rose to its completion, so did the spirit Gaia emerge. Gaia envisioned a new world where its civilization and lands thrived on human blood. 5 realms fell to the abyss, one splitting into two in the process, and from these came 6 other deities to rule over Terra Cruentus, with Gaia serving as the Allmother of the world. She devised the ritual of the Terra Throne and the entire Season of the Queen.


Terra Gate


Eelmouth- Not a deity nor one of the Black Guard, Eelmouth plays a special role in the Rituale de Blud.

North Hollow


Freddy Krueger- One of the spirits who either rose from or took over the North Hollow following the original lands destruction. Freddy Krueger is a loner amongst the deities (he doesn’t believe himself to be a deity anyway), only associating himself with Gaia’s group because it benefits him. He often keeps to his own vices though he still helps Gaia by providing the Pure of Heart and molding the Terra Queens. He resides deep within an epicenter of terror accessed through Maldaken Pass where he subjects unfortunate victims to visions of horror and fantasy. Very few survive and those who do become ”Pure of Heart” and are ripe for Gaia’s taking. 

The Scarecrow- Jonathan Crane, one of the Black Guard. The Scarecrow performs “fear research” in North Hollow. 


Dragon Forge


Ares (DC)- The God of War and probably the only literal god here. With a helmet that masks his hideous visage and an battle axe, he makes an incredibly intimidating presence.  

Guderalle- One of the Black Guard. Guderalle is of Gnomerat Birth, the Gnomerats having existed here since before the realm fell. Because of this, Guderalle knows way more than she lets on, though she mostly keeps these to herself both because of her high status and of the punishment for dissenters. Still Guderalle would often plant seeds of doubt here and there, and seems to have a goal for her own. 


Gorewood Forest


Mystique- When Gaia began to create Terra Cruentus, she birthed a daughter out her soul and Gorewood. Emerged came a red haired blue woman with yellow eyes and the ability to shapeshift. Mystique as the god of this realm oversees the unique process of Gorewood, which consists of taking used corpses, rendering their bones and flesh and burying them on blood soaked soil; from there they would become precious resources, such as the Gorewood Skulls which Mystique wears as a belt. Mystique’s ultimate desire is to transform all “ordinary” beings into super powered creatures like herself. 


The Midnight Man- One of the Black Guard serving under Mystique. Once an ordinary man, dabbling too deeply with the forces of dark magic have robbed him of his humanity. In order to satiate his own life force, he makes deals with others to grant their deepest desires… but at a price. 


South Hollow


Diva- One of the two spirits who either resides within this land all this time, or merely came across it when it split into the South. Like the land itself, Diva is utterly demented and strange, and loves to sing in the grand amphitheater for all to see. Harnesses the power of the winds alongside great swordsmanship. 


Iron Bone Gorge 


Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus- Many assume this Caligula to be quite mad, but in truth he’s just a particularly murderous prankster and hedonist.
